My undergrad specialized in chemistry and I wanted to branch out and do more of a genetics and cell biology-based PhD. When I came for the graduate school interview, it had only been a short time since WSU had announced formation of the School of Molecular Biosciences, which meant you could do a PhD in microbiology, genetics and cell biology, or biochemistry and biophysics, with any of the professors in any of those programs. I was also impressed with the structure of the program. I felt very comfortable that I would know exactly what my path was. Plus, out of all my graduate school interviews, it was the only one where there were other parents interviewing, and it was affordable.
