Our application process begins with you submitting a completed application to the Graduate College including, three letters of recommendation, all higher education transcripts, GRE scores, TOEFL scores (if not a native English speaker), and the associated application fee. The CMB Recruitment and Admissions Committee will review completed applications for appropriate qualifications, skills, knowledge and motivation. Decisions will be based on a variety of criteria including: undergraduate GPA, GRE scores, letters of reference, statement of purpose, educational background as demonstrated on all transcripts, and an interview (Skype, phone, or on-campus).
In 2011 I earned my BA in Biology from Western Connecticut State University where I conducted research in the laboratories of Dr. Frank Dye, Dr. Edwin Wong, and Dr. Thomas Lonergan. I joined the CMB program in the fall of 2012, and my experience thus far has been nothing short of amazing. I chose the CMB program at UVM for its breadth of interdisciplinary, cutting-edge research, and for the focus and importance the faculty place on the individual development of each student. When I'm not studying, in class, or in the lab I enjoy getting outdoors as much as possible. Burlington offers incredible places for hiking, swimming, biking, or just exploring the beautiful state of Vermont. Mark P. Fitzgerald
