  2. All transcripts from undergraduate and graduate institutions you have attended
  3. TOEFL or IELTS scores are also required for non-native English speakers
  4. Formal copies of GRE scores (at least the general and preferably both general and biology)
  5. Three academic letters of reference from faculty members who best know you and your work
  6. Your personal essay (2 pages)
