Odds of Getting In

Getting into a Ph.D. program or into medical school is a challenge. If you can score a 39 on your MCAT, then you have a 90% chance of getting into med school. The top Ph.D. programs only accept 7-10 students per year, so your GRE score had better be impressive.

Once you are working in the field, it's important to be active. Luckily, jobs in immunology are expected to increase by 25-35% by 2020. This means you need to get those accreditations and certifications so you are ready when the phone rings with a lucrative job offer.
