Hi, I'm a senior at university of maryland-college park. I am graduating with a materials engineering bachelor's degree, 3.2 gpa, two years of research experience in a cell biophysics lab and one semester of research in a materials interface and nanotechnology lab. I just took the gre and got the 750-800 range for both quantitative and verbal. Other experience I have is that I was an RA for two years and have always worked at least 2 on campus jobs, more often 3, to put myself through school. LORs will be good but not stellar. I am very interested in studying bioMEMs for my master's/PhD, and was wondering what professors or universities I should look at that I could possibly get into. My more specific interests include medical nanorobotics, drug delivery systems, regenerative medicine, and tissue engineering/substitutes. So far, the universities I have looked at that seem promising are university of cincinatti, university of washington-seattle, UC-Irvine, UC-Davis, Northeastern university, Rice, Montreal Polytechnic (Canada), Monash University (Australia), or one of the lower-ranked UK universities in the UK that have specialized nanotechnology programs-Bangor University, Ulster, Swansea, or maybe Heriot-Watt as a reach. I just have had some trouble figuring out how competitive it will be and how I actually stand as an applicant. My advisor told me that I should consider schools on the level of Rutgers, but have had trouble finding ones at that ranking that have any sort of bioMEMs labs or professors who are doing research in that area. Any and all help is appreciated!
