Biophysics Admissions Guidelines
The Biophysics Admissions Committee will evaluate the OVERALL application when considering an applicant for admission. The Committee will carefully consider an applicant's grades, exam scores, letters of recommendation, research experience, publications, research interests, and the personal statement.
below are general guidelines and are not meant to dissuade potential
applicants from applying. Please keep in mind that a successful applicant
can be "weak" in one area, but strong in all other areas
of their application. For example, a student who may not have
excellent grades, but excels on the GRE's, and has good research
experience with excellent letters of recommendation, would still
be considered for admission.
When reporting gpa's, students should not convert their scores to the US 4.0 system, but should report the scores based on their home institution's grading system (e.g., 80%, 7/10).
and Computational Biology Program does not require a subject GRE
In lieu of the TSE, the IELTS will also be accepted. Students who receive score of 8 on the spoken section of the exam would be eligible to teach. The University minimum score is 6.5.
