ahimsa000 Posted December 16, 2013 Share Posted December 16, 2013 Hello, I was a pre med student at my school (UCI) for the full 4 years, then I had some trouble with balancing work and school (I had to work) and I ended up with a 2.76 cumulative GPA. After long deliberation and serious soul-searching (and working as an EMT) I decided that being an M.D. or D.O. isn't for me. Anyways, I have done my research on what I want to do, and I'm very interested in a masters in biotechnology. Here are my stats: -Work Experience: 24 Hour Fitness: Service Rep, promoted to Service Manager after 1 year (2 yr total) UCI School of Medicine: Lab assistant for PI who is the dean of admissions at UCI SOM (2 years) UCI School of Medicine: Lab Manager/Research Assistant for very successful PI in neuroscience (1.5 years) Pacific Ambulance: EMT for this ambulance company (4 months) -Volunteer/Intern Experience: Medical internship in Nepal for one month ER Volunteer at St. Joseph's hospital (4 months) Research Intern at UCI SOM for PI (neuroscience one; before I got the job there) (1 year) -Publications/Abstracts: 1 paper in review 3 abstracts presented at Society for Neuroscience conference in Louisiana and D.C. GPA is sub-par at a whopping 2.76. GRE *practice tests*: Verbal section 150, Quantitative section 170 I'm set to take the GRE on January 10th, 2014. Applications for most programs are due by March/April Do I even have a chance? Thanks for reading! SR Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
