This is not a question but just a feeling that I want to share.
I had applied to 6 univs for PhD in Human Genetics in the US for fall-2012.
Could you please help me understand the reason for my rejection from one and all?
Here is a brief look at my profile
- Bsc (Hons) Human Genetics- 66% (First division)
- Msc Biomedical genetics- 8.91/10 cgpa
- GRE- 305/340
- TOEFL- 99/120
- Worked at Mayo Clinic in 2011 as a research assistant for 4 months
- Worked in a research lab for 1 and a half years during masters.
- Publications- National AJMS and International BMB Cancer
- Summer training- IVF centre for 15 days and Neonatal hospital for 2 days (observer ship)
I am shattered . I don’t know what to do.
I cannot waste another year and apply for fall-2013, and constantly fearing my rejection again.
Where did I lag behind?
Following were the univs which I had applied to
- Mayo Clinic
- Univ of colorado, denver
- Johns Hopkins
- Vanderbilt University
I know all of them are “A-grade” but to my irony, PhD in Human Genetics is only offered in top schools across the US.
