bacteriagirl Posted April 14, 2020 Share Posted April 14, 2020 (edited) Hi! So I want to apply for grad school this Fall but I'm not sure if I'm competitive enough (I've been reading some of the profiles here and I'm kind of worried). I have a 3.8 GPA (general and science) and I've done 3 summers (1 in junior year of high school which doesn't really count and 2 in college; I was going to do research this summer but corona) and when I graduate I'm going to have 5 semesters of research. I also have a publication as a co-author. All of the programs I'm considering don't accept the GRE or don't consider it so I'm not going to take it. I'm planning on applying to biomedical phd programs at: Harvard, UPenn, WUSTL, Emory, Stanford, Yale, Columbia, NYU, USC, Mayo, and Pittsburgh. Is there anything I can do to boost my profile? Another question: All of my research has been in immunology/microbio research and that's the focus of the programs I'm applying to but I haven't taken an Immunology course in college. Should I consider taking an immuno course? Sorry for asking about this but I'm lowkey worried Thanks!!!
