alkaline262 Posted September 9, 2012 Share Posted September 9, 2012 (edited) I am intending applying to several general biology and molecular biology programs for the fall semester of 2013. I graduated this last May with a bachelors in biology. I have noticed that some schools require me to have a prof agree to advise me before I even send in the application, is this requirement common? I have tried to email about a dozen profs from several different school, but have not established any correspondence. In my email I outline my research experience and express interest in the professor's work; I conclude the email with asking if they have any room for new students. What happens If I cannot get in touch with anyone prior to application, should I just apply anyway? I really hope I am qualified enough to get an adviser. I worked on 3 research projects during my undergraduate for several semesters, high GPA, and scholarships etc. Edited September 9, 2012 by alkaline262 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
