need evaluation, can someone help ?

Recommended Posts

I am applying this year for Bioinformatics this year...

Can someone give me a fair evaluation. Do I have chance getting into a good program.

 

Worst international Asian male

Undergrad school: Big state (I stupidly chose wait for 3 waitlists, I thought at least 1 out of 3, and ended up like this...)

GPA:3.81

major GPA:3.95

Majors: Cell biology, biochem

Minor: Math

GRE: not taken yet, but will take soon, quant easy full score, verbal IDK, 145-150 prob

Exp:

2 years research at UCSF

couple summer research

publications:

Nth author on Nature comm
3rd author on median clinic journal
4th author on a field top journal
2nd on a paper under review for nature, quit big project
 

Working on a (I think) very cool novel deep learning pipeline independently (code is done, result seems promising to my PI, need to finalize)

Lof:

big name in the field 
ordinary senior researcher
somewhat big name prof in the biomedical filed
 

honors:

very competitive national honors for math, biology and physics in high school

Putnam experience 

skills:

python (very good, huge amount of projects on git), c/c++ (one project), R(fine, couple projects) , shell(fine, couple projects), cython (one project) and matlab (studied).

 

What is my chance ? is it possible for a Big state international Asian male be accepted in good programs ?
