The Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center (MSK) is hosting a free 3-day virtual series for senior undergraduate students and postbacs: Demystifying the graduate school application process.
This event is open to senior undergraduates and current postbacs from historically underrepresented groups in biomedical fields (flyer attached). During the 3 sessions (September 13, 14 & 15), the participants will hear about the different parts of the graduate school application (statements, letters of recommendation, interview tips & fellowships available). They will also learn how to prepare for the interview and (selected participants) will receive feedback in a mock interview session with a faculty member. We will also host 3 panels with PhD students and faculty to talk about the application process, the interviews, and what does the admissions panel focuses on. Finally, students will learn about all the graduate programs associated with MSK:
- Gerstner Sloan Kettering Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences (GSK),
- Weill Cornell Graduate School (WCGS),
- Tri-Institutional PhD Program in Chemical Biology (TPCB), and
- Tri-Institutional PhD Computational Biology and Medicine Program (CBM).
Interested students and postbacs must submit an application by September 7, 2021 at 11:59 PM (EDT). We will request their CV by email. The exact dates and topics are detailed on the application form.
