What do Polygence alumni say about their projects?

“My Polygence project gave me confidence in knowing that I have the ability to tackle higher quality research at the collegiate level. This experience with research also gave me a different perspective compared to those with other extracurricular activities and experiences.”

UC Berkeley badge

Yes it did, it helped motivate me to do research into what I really enjoyed about STEM and led me to the major I am planning to go in. Polygence helped me figure out what I wanted to do in college which made my essays more genuine.

Cornell University badge

Polygence helped me shape my application that was more focused towards my major, demonstrating to the admissions counselors that I am passionate about what I intend to study. It gave me an opportunity to explore a niche topic that I am interested in, showing more depth in my academic interests. In my Rice admissions package, they send a personalized message to every admitted student, and my message was talking about how they are excited to see how my experience in the research that l chose will shape the Rice community!
