kbthemadsci Posted July 1, 2012 Share Posted July 1, 2012 So, I just recently got my bachelors in biology from a small state school in Kentucky. Our biology program is respectable (at least to those who know it in the area) but I didn't have access to a lot of research opportunities. In the end I managed to do a summer internship through AMGEN at UCSD (10 weeks) and another through UMass Med (also 10 weeks) plus a small project at my home institution. This leads me to my worries and woes. Is this a competitive amount of experience for a biomedical Ph.D. program? It seems many applicants have several years of experience often in one single lab. If this is a problem. Is it something I could address in my SOP by claiming lack of access rather than effort? Thanks for any thoughts anyone may have - KB Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
