bsharpe269 Posted January 10, 2014 Share Posted January 10, 2014 I want to apply to phd programs in biophysics and bioinformatics. My undegrad gpa is a 3.3 (in math) but grad is a 4.0 (in bioinformatics). Gre scores are 157V, 161Q, 4.5 but can take these again before I apply (they are from before masters). Lots of research experience starting freshman year of undergrad, including a top REU, 5 years of bio lab work, 1 year bioengineering lab work, biomath research(conference paper+ big award from my university). I am doing research now in structural bioinformatics and may publish before applying (but if not, I still have alot of knowledge in this area and a great LOR - this is the area I want to stay in for phd) Has anyone gotten into competitive (around top 50 at least?) phd programs with similar stats? I had diagnosed but untreated with ADD in college and am now treating it. This explains the change in grades in addition to a change in work ethic that came with maturity. I am guessing this shouldnt be mentioned though to phd programs though. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
