parisa86 Posted April 13, 2013 Share Posted April 13, 2013 Hi, To be short, I am coming from an engineering background but I want to apply for PhD in biology for top schools. I would love to hear your thoughts and experiences in this regard. Thank you in advance! Details: I have a bachelor's degree in electrical engineering from university of florida with a GPA of 3.93 and master's degree from Georgia Tech with a GPA of 3.5. I have undergraduate research experience as an NSF REU student. I also have 3 semesters of research experience at the Georgia Tech working in nanotechnology area making biosensor devices. This research resulted in one conference paper publication and a workshop publication. I am planning to take GRE biology subject test to supplement my application as I am not a traditional biology student. Also, I am looking to get into pure biology programs and not bioengineering, biomedical or computational biology sorts of majors. What are your suggestions for increasing my chances? or What do you think about my chances for getting into top schools? Thanks a lot for reading this and helping with your answers. kuchbhi 1 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
