the future? the FUTURE!.... oh dear

The topic I have been avoiding for weeks....Today my room-mates and I were looking up graduate schools for our respective programs... and this was what i found... from the US News World Report, a list of 7 top universities (and a couple thrown in between), a list of 7 highly competitive (relatively unattainable) institutions, and nothing else-- the article did not give a list of any other, following, less-competitive schools thereafter. Other programs (i.e. higher education) listed scores or even 100s of universities, but not this one. Slightly discouraged, I decided, "no more lists or references, no more 'grad school search engines.' I am going to find graduate programs 'my' way (or the way my advisor told me to, rather)." So I Googled and Binged for hours. With the sounds of The Sound of Music dvd in the background this is what I compiled thus far:

Albany College of Medicine – Graduate Studies MS or PhD in Immunology & Microbial Disease Application deadline for Fall enrollment: 15 November?

Penn State – The Huck Institutes of Life Sciences MS or PhD in Immunology and Infectious Diseases Application deadline for Fall enrollment: 1 December

University of Rochester – School of Medicine and Dentistry PhD in Microbiology, Immunology & Virology Application deadline for Fall enrollment: 1 January

Washington State University – College of Veterinary Medicine Veterinary Microbiology and Pathology MS or PhD in Immunology and Infectious Diseases Application deadline for Fall enrollment: 10 January

George Washington University MS, MPH, PhD in Epidemiology MPH, MPH/Masters Peace Corps, PhD in Global Health MPH in Global Health Epidemiology MS in Public Health Microbiology and Emerging Infectious Disease Application deadline for Doctoral program, Fall enrollment: 15 January University of Wisconsin – Madison MS or PhD in Medical Microbiology and Immunology Application Deadline for Fall enrollment: 15 January

Indiana University – School of Medicine Dept of Microbiology and Immunology Interdisciplinary Program: MS? or PhD in Immunology and Infectious Disease Application deadline for Fall enrollment: 15 January

University of Virginia – Health System PhD in Microbiology, Immunology, & Infectious Disease Application deadline for Fall enrollment: 15 January

University of Arizona – College of Medicine MS or PhD in Microbiology & Pathobiology Application deadline for Fall enrollment: 1 April

University at Albany – School of Public Health MS, MPH, Dr.PH, PhD in Epidemiology & Biostatistics Application deadline for FA enrollment: 30 May

I am sure this list will be cut short as I look into their admission requirements (....blasted physics), and expanded as I continue to look for more. Thus the pursuit continues, or begins rather...

  1. That is an impressive list of schools, and a great start. I will be curious to know which require physics or other courses that would keep you from applying. Even if they list a course as a requirement that you do not have, I would still call to ask if they would consider your application.

  2. And you should know not to trust US News and World Report, unless of course they rank UVa at the top of a list.
