Clueless about chances

That Bucket woman

Recommended Posts

So bear with me, I'm entirely new to the grad school application process. I just want to know how realistic I'm being applying this year.

Undergrad: JHU

Undergrad GPA: 3.72 overall, don't know what a major GPA is, but my BCPM is 3.68

Grad (for Master's in Health Sciences)- Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health

Grad GPA (so far): 4.0

GRE ( I don't know how good this is, took after three days of studying):

Quantitative- 162

Verbal- 165

Writing unknown yet

Related activities:

2 years of undergrad research, no pubs

Master's thesis

I started out pre med, so I have a lot of clinical volunteering, which I don't think will help much

Tutoring adults for GED

Programs I'm applying to: ( all for human genetics)



3.) UNH




7.) IOWA

8.) mount Sinai

This list may seem strange, but one of the main reasons I chose it was because most of my top choices had deadlines that would pass before I could take the GRE.

By the way, I just recently switched from being pre- med. I had med school interviews, but I could never answer the question of why medicine without struggling to find an answer. I've really always loved research, and know it's a better fit for me (for what it's worth, my MCAT score is 34Q- 13 PS, 8VR, 13BS).

Is this realistic? Is my research too weak? Any advice would be welcome

You should post this in whatever field your interested in. And no one outside of hopkins will know what bcpm means. In general, I suggest calculating your major gpa yourself; many programs require junior/senior gpa, major gpa, last 60 units gpa or some other arbitrary scale.
