Cannabissativa Posted February 19, 2017 Share Posted February 19, 2017 (edited) Undergrad Institution: No-name pharmacy school from SE-Asian country (Although top 3 in my country)Major(s): Pharmacy; Pharmaceutical SciencesMinor(s): NoneGPA in Major: 3.7Overall GPA: 3.7Position in Class: Top 5%Type of Student: InternationalGRE Scores (revised/old version):Q: 162V: 157W: 4.5B: TOEFL: 110 Research Experience: 1. Internship in neuropharmacology at my country's number one medical school. 2. Internship in formulation development at my country's number one pharmaceutical company (Among top 5 generic manufacturers in the world). 3. Internship in vaccine development at a research lab sponsored by two of the top 10 pharmaceutical companies of the world. 4. Student researcher for one year each under two different professors of pharmaceutics (Worked on drug delivery). 5. Student researcher for one year under my professor of pharmacology. Awards/Honors/Recognitions: Some awards in pharma-related competitions. Nothing extraordinary.Pertinent Activities or Jobs: None Publications: Have three review articles, out of which two have been published in international, peer-reviewed journals (Elsevier). Have two research papers (International, Peer-reviewed). Co-authoring a book on drug delivery by Elsevier.Any Miscellaneous Accomplishments that Might Help: Have done over 2 years of volunteering at a Nobel Peace Prize winning organization. Have helped in the rescue of over 230 children who were victims of trafficking, bonded labor, and slavery. Handled over 180 volunteers (which in turn, handled an audience of over 10,000 schoolchildren) for a very very large scale event.Special Bonus Points: I have a lot of enthusiasm/charisma in person and interview fairly well. Undergraduate research is not common in my country (in my field). One of the first students in my university to do it. All recommendation letters would be pretty good as far as I know. Applying to Where: University of Wisconsin Madison - PhD Pharmaceutical Sciences University of Michigan Ann Arbor - PhD (Department of Pharmacoengineering and Molecular Pharmaceutics) UNC Chapel Hill - PhD Pharmaceutics University of Southern California - PhD Pharmaceutical Sciences Purdue University - PhD Industrial & Physical Pharmacy University of Florida - PhD Pharmaceutics University of Minnesota Twin Cities - PhD Pharmaceutical Sciences Rutger's University - PhD Pharmaceutical Sciences University of Illinois at Chicago - PhD Pharmaceutical Sciences University of Buffalo SUNY - PhD Pharmaceutical Sciences University of Cincinnati - PhD Pharmaceutical Sciences ----- Since not many students from my field apply to the US, so I have absolutely no clue where I stand. I have a couple of questions: 1. How would you rate my chances at these universities? 2. I am a little confused if I should apply for pharmacology programs as well (and reduce the number of PharmSci programs I apply to), how would I stand for PhD Pharmacology programs at universities like Harvard, Stanford, Cornell, Yale, Brown, Duke, Johns Hopkins, etc.?
