  • Application cycles: 10/14/2009
  • Demographics: Male, 36
  • Home state: Washington
  • Last Active: 06/05/2011
  • Brief Profile: I\'m filling this out on behalf of my cousin (who doesn\'t have reliable internet access in his current location), so I might be a bit hazy on the details. (See below for what I can remember.) His application was very late for a number of reasons. Probably applied to too many research-oriented schools considering that he has no interest in bench research. In hindsight, it might have been smarter to wait for the next cycle and apply to a different set of schools, but things worked out great in the end.

    GPA:
    - top 10% of program
