New month, new post! One of the goals I’d like to accomplish is for you to hear directly from graduate school admissions committee members so that the process of applying is more transparent. It so happens that my twin sister, Dr. Beth Bowman, holds a variety of positions in the Biomedical Graduate Programs at Vanderbilt and can speak to this directly. Check out our conversation about what graduate programs are looking for in general, what graduate school is like, career options after graduate school, and other tidbits. I’m sure this conversation will be the first of many. If you have any questions you’d like me to include in these kinds of interviews in the future, don’t hesitate to reach out!
