Bioenchilada Posted August 16, 2015 Share Posted August 16, 2015 Hey! I'm going to be applying for a couple top Ph.D programs and wanted some feedback on my credentials and potentially my "chances" of getting into the programs I want to. Also, knowing what GRE score I should shoot for would also be helpful. School: Well-known research institution Race/Ethnicity: Hispanic GPA: 3.95 Majors: Cell Biology, Genetics Minors: Anthropology, Biotechnology Research Experience: 6 semesters of research at home institution, 1 summer at UPenn, 1 summer at Harvard Med, 3 national conferences (LANS twice and SEA-PHAGES National Symposium at Janelia Farm), 1 publication from HHMI-funded national research project. Practice GRE score: PowerPrepII Q:163 V:157 LORs: Expect strong letters from PIs at Harvard, Penn, and home institution professor (2 of which that were confirmed to be strong by Harvard PI) Potential grad schools: Harvard Med, UChicago, UPenn, Stanford Med , and Cornell VetThanks for your input! (There's a moderate to high chance that I'll take a year off to effectively prep for a joint degree program, but that's a separate issue lol) Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
