pstar465 Posted July 8, 2013 Share Posted July 8, 2013 (edited) Hi guys! I'm applying for fall 2014 entrance to Ph.D. programs in microbiology. I went to JHU for undergrad and got a 2.86 (ouch, I know). I did poorly my first year, but the other three years I averaged around a 3.1, and I took several graduate classes as an undergrad, which I got mostly "A"s in. I have two years research experience in virology, one of those being full-time postgrad. I work in a competitive government lab, and I'm a researcher on many projects. I scored in the 89th% on the verbal gre, 84% on quantitative, 97% on writing. My question is: are my research experiences and GRE possibly good enough to overcome my GPA? Edit: I also had a talk at a research conference and a poster at ASV, and possibly 2 second-author papers by the end of this year.
