    Hey everyone,

    Not sure if this is the right area to post this but I thought I'd ask if anyone here is applying for this or has taken part previously. I've just sent off my application form and want to find some general opinions of the programme from previous participants (and ask some questions) and meet some potential fellow summer students!

    Thanks!

    I received an email, saying that they have only selected the first 300 applications, so I have been rejected. For those still in the game good luck, it looks like a fantastic opportunity.

    Does that mean they've made a short-list of 300 people? Jeez, that's still loads...

    Yep it's 300 applicants that they are planning to review, however I'm not sure how many they plan to take and it also depends on what choices applicants have picked, so that this into account.

    What choices did you pick ?

    I think there's around 25 places. And I put Neurobiology, Gene Regulation and Genomics as my highest fields of research. Cell Biology, Imaging and Molecular Biology were my highest research methods. I've had a look at the labs they offer and to be honest they all look pretty amazing, it's really the experience i'm after anyway.

    Research Methods- Cell Biology, Genetics, Molecular Biology and Biochemistry

    But I have been rejected.
