My chances for a PhD in Life Sciences
Hi, I am a final year MS student from Asia and am looking to apply to good schools but not Ivy League. What are my chances with the credentials I have??
GPA: 4.0/4.0 (MS)
3.43/4.0 (BS) GPA is as evaluated by WES(World Education Services)
GRE: 157 ( Verbal) ; 160 (Quantitative). Still awaiting my Analytical scores.
IELTS: 7.5 overall. 8.5 listening, 8.0 reading, 6.5 writing, 7.0 speaking
Publication: Only 1, in an international journal.
Research Experience: 3 years including internships plus one year as part of my MS research project.
LORS:Strong ones who have substantial research and teaching experience in the US.
Do I need to take the subject GRE as well?
Will expecting full funding from Penn State and University of Illinois, Chicago too ambitious?? Also, can I expect a place at Cornell University with my credentials?
Thanks in advace.
