Immuno Posted October 23, 2011 Share Posted October 23, 2011 I've sent my apps to 3 immunology phD programs and already received an interview invitation from one of the programs. In my opinion, one of the biggest weaknesses in my application is the fact that I have NO publications or poster presentations. Even though I have 3 years of research experience, my current PI is very stingy with the credit-giving. Anyway, yesterday he told me (FINALLY) that my name would appear on two publications, one as 3rd author and one as 6th author. I know 6th author is not a big deal at all, basically the same as not even having a publication, but how is 3rd author viewed by the ad comms? Does it strengthen an application, or does it not really help much unless you are first or second author? I'm trying to decide if it would be worth notifying my prospective programs of this or if I would just look desperate. Thanks! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
