chacha Posted August 12, 2010 Share Posted August 12, 2010 Hi guys, this fall I'm planning to apply for graduate programs in the US starting in fall 2011. I'm an international student doing my BSc in Molecular Biology at UCL (University College London) in the UK and am planning to apply for the following programs among others: MIT (Biology graduate program) UCSF (Tetrad Biochem and Mol Biology) UC Berkeley (MCB) Stanford (Biochemistry) Johns Hopkins (BCMB) I have/expect to get a first class degree (A, im not sure what the equivalent GPA is but I would guess around 3.7-3.8) and hope for a GRE score of around 1400. My letters of recommendation should be pretty good and I have decent lab experience (internships in the last 3 summers). Something else which also may be worth noting is that im only 18 years old and will be until my final exams as I skipped 2 classes in school due to academic achievements. Would you think that I have chances of getting into any of the above/similar programs? Am I at a disadvantage by not being American/ being an international student? Are there any universities which have ok acceptance rates for international students? And would you have any suggestions in terms of top programs in biochemistry/molecular biology/biomedical sciences. Any feedback would be most appreciated Thanks, chacha Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
