<p>I'll be taking the GRE next month, and I'm trying to pick out four schools to send my scores to and start looking in to. Right now, my list is:</p>
<li>UC San Francisco</li>
<li>My undergrad school, which I've already gotten plenty of info about [UArizona]</li>
<p>I'm just curious if people can tell me a little about graduate school at any of these places, whether you've gone there or know anything about their epidemiology programs. </p>
<p>A little info about me, if it helps: like I mentioned, I think I want to go into epidemiology. My dream right now would be to study HIV/AIDS and possibly work for the CDC in the future. I'm a biology major with a theatre arts minor, and my GPA is around 3.7. All of my practice GRE tests [using PowerPrep from ETS] are generally around 1500-1530, so I have high hopes for that score. I have two years of lab experience in a psychology lab and pharmacology lab through an internship funded by the National Institutes of Health. [I'll have 5 years of lab experience when I graduate.] I love smaller labs that aren't structured too much in terms of time, but I don't have enough experience in a larger, structured lab to say that I hate them.
I'd like to enter a PhD program, and I prefer living on the west coast. That's why my schools are pretty concentrated in terms of location.
I am a sophomore right now, but our internship suggests taking the GRE since we attended a pretty good workshop about it. Therefore, I'm sure lots of the above information will change by the time I get to applying for grad school, but I'm curious about some of these programs for now.</p>
