kangaroomr Posted August 29, 2016 Share Posted August 29, 2016 I graduated with a BSEE 2015. Initially I was interested in entering industry and decided to switch over to research in my last year. I have mostly industry experience from undergrad but am now an RA in a clinical research position. Some stats: GPA: 3.4 (a couple C's but mostly A's, not sure how to get around this) GRE: Taking these in a month, aiming for 170 Q, 160~ V LOR: Will have one for sure from my current position, still deciding which prof. to ask for the other two Research Experience: Senior engineering project was essentially an independent group-based research project with a BCI using MATLAB and EEGs Have a coauthorship from this job for a submitted paper and am working on other projects that will hopefully turn into more publications later this year or next year. Doing lots of EEG/MEG/MRI data collection and analysis. Imaging isn't quite the direction I want to head towards but I enjoy it. I'm strongly interested in electrophysiology, BCIs, neuroprosthetics, sensorimotor neuroscience, signal processing type of research. Schools: Harvard/MIT HST MIT EECS Duke Biomed (Nicolelis lab in particular) WashU Stanford Johns Hopkins Rice Pittsburgh UCSD Brown Northwestern I can definitely strengthen my application with more pubs but not sure if it will matter if I wait until next year to apply or what. any advice appreciated. Anyone have experience in how competitive it is in this field? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
