Applying to Phd Neuroscience Programs


Recommended Posts

Hi there, I am wondering if it is worth doing a "chance me" here. I have 15 programs on my list and at this time I am just planning on applying to all since I have no basis of knowing if I would be a good candidate.

Advice or feedback appreciated....

Ivy League Undergrad, Biology Major 3.3 GPA

Top Ranked Biology Masters Program (currently 3.72 GPA - will improve by Spring ** although not sure that will matter - can I send updated GPA to admissions in Dec?)

Work 30+ hours a week for last 1.5 years in a neuro lab working under incredible Lab Director (Harvard Phd) who is my LOR. This is my Masters thesis work also.
