rexzeppelin Posted October 22, 2013 Share Posted October 22, 2013 Hey hivemind, I've got a question. Not looking for a pity fest here comforting me on application weaknesses, when I start getting that kind of mopey feeling I just go slick my hair back in the mirror and remind myself how awesome I look. Anyway, I'm applying to PhD programs in molecular biology to start fall 2014. My GPA/GRE's are where they should be, I went to a decent LAC (hence the insecurities vis a vis research), LOR's will be positive, I did two years of research with my advisor in molecular genetics, made some good progress, but we had issues (DNA from Mexico didn't arrive until I'd already graduated, advisor decided to go adopt a child in China for 6 months, etc.) and so nothing was published while I was there, and even after it seems the project's now in limbo. Question is: does a lack of publications make this experience meaningless, like I was twiddling my thumbs or whatnot? Will this preclude me from being a competitive candidate at tier 1 programs?
