Internships and Attending Graduate School 37 WHY WOULD I WANT TO BE AN INTERN? The most obvious reason you would choose to be an intern is that you can’t find a job in the field you want and that the only way to work in that field is by interning. But there are other compelling reasons for doing an internship. One is the training you will receive. Although as an undergraduate you learned a great deal of biology, you generally did not get to do a lot of the kinds of things you would do when you work as a biologist or at a biology-related job.

Although you might believe you have little control, the fact is that most of the power in this process resides with you. You are responsible for the quality of your schoolwork and the level of effort you devote to your college search and application. Those on the other side of the table (that is, the admission officers) make decisions based upon what you present to them. Give them your best. ” The admission officer’s job is to bring to the campus those students the faculty most want to teach. Although it certainly doesn’t always hold true, the best measure of a student’s potential in college is his or her performance in the high school classroom.

Ranges shown are averages, not absolutes. And indeed, the college handbooks or literature often cite the middle 50 percent of student test scores, not the highest and lowest scores. Choosing a College for Biology Majors 25 Many students take the SAT or ACT more than once. More often than not the scores are just about the same, although simply because of having gained more experience, the later score is a bit higher. However, if the scores are quite different, regardless of whether it was the first or second score, it would be helpful for you to explain to the college why.
