quietBird Posted September 7, 2016 Share Posted September 7, 2016 (edited) Hi everyone! I'm wondering what my chances are of getting into the PhD immunology program at Harvard for Fall 2017. I would like to go there because the university is still relatively close to my family, although I'm also considering UPenn and I'm not sure what other schools... Here's my stats: I am Canadian and all the schools I've attended are in Canada. I am currently a master's student in my field of interest, hoping to graduate by the time I enter a PhD program. I am on three publications (in the middle; not first author or anything). I have a high GPA in both my undergrad and graduate courses, about a 93/100 average which is approximately a 4.0 GPA? 13 scholarship awards. I have worked for 2 years at two large biotechnology companies based in the USA through internships. I have three strong reference letters from my current PI and from my PIs at the two biotech companies. I am doing the GRE in a month and I suspect I'll do very poorly; I've always been bad at English and vocabulary. Maybe a 150V/150Q at best... Am I crazy for even applying to Harvard, especially considering I'll do poorly on the GRE? Edited September 7, 2016 by quietBird Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
