I applied for PhD at the University of Melbourne in the beginning of this month. The PhD will be at the department of molecular biology and biochemistry. I have a Masters in chemistry and biochemistry from Texas Tech University, Texas, USA (with a 4.0 GPA). I have an experience of working as a research assistant for about 2.5 years. I also have a publication as a second author. I have few questions if anyone can help me with them:
1. What honestly are my chances of getting into the program?
2. What does the admissions staff usually look at while deciding for a PhD application at Unimelb?
3. How long do I need to wait for the outcome of my application?
It would be great if someone from University of Melbourne could help me with these questions.
Thank you

Not from the Australia (UK) but I can give some general advice.

1. You have good grades at undergrad and masters, research experience and a publication which is an great CV for PhD applications. You would have an amazing chance in the UK
2. They want see someone who has the desire to finish a PhD and the ability to actually do it.
3. From enquiry to interview many months (it varies) after an interview it can be 1-2 months but they usually decide fast.

I hope someone from Unimelb replies but goodluck with your applications
