  1. Hi everyone! I was accepted into the University of Victoria's MPH program in late April. Since then, I've been trying to gain more information about the program and the school but not much information is online. If anyone has any advice on the program, the school or even any thoughts about the city, I'd greatly appreciate it! I'd really like to know what the program is like and what your experience with online learning is (since I don't have much experience with an online environment). I've also tried to look for stats to see how the program compares to other MPH schools in Canada, how many people apply, etc...but again, not much information is available. Any help would be appreciated!
  2. Application closed out for review around the first week of May. (I applied in the 3rd cycle.) Their website says I should have a decision by June 16th. I did also notice the addition of a 4th application cycle with an application due date of June 1st. This wasn't listed before and I wonder if this means that they still have seats to fill... Does anyone know if they typically wait till the notification date to send out notices?
  3. So I could not find any other active forums about CSUB which is why I'm making this one. Has anyone applied to CSUB? If so have you heard anything back yet? I applied the 1st week of December via email. Still waiting on a response...
  4. So it's already late March and browsing through the results it doesn't look like anyone's gotten a notification of acceptance or rejection? Has anyone heard an update yet?
  5. This is my first post here, so please go easy on me with the forum rules I applied to a lot of Computer science and engineering related programs in Canada, out of which UoAlberta's MSc in computing science with specialisation in Multimedia and McMaster's MEng in software engineering and virtual systems design programs were my first choices ( I'm interested in game development, graphics and HCI, so the programs seemed like a good fit ). I got accepted into the program at UoAlberta a while ago, but I'm still waiting for McMaster to give an admission verdict Since I'm an international student, it'll take me a few weeks to get a study permit and visa and all other relevant documentation done before the programs start, and since it's already almost June, I'm a bit worried about my chances to get into McMaster Personally, I wish to get into McMaster because the program seems to be a better fit than Alberta's program by just a little bit. So, can you guys advise me if I should keep waiting for McMaster to give its verdict, or should I just go with the UoAlberta program? Any advise would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
  6. Post your current status and any questions or comments here! Interview dates on 1/27, 2/17. 3/11 My interview was on 1/27 and I am currently on committee hold.
  7. Hey guys I thought it would be good to start a thread for people applying for genetic counseling school for Fall 2017. I am starting to prepare for the GRE and the supplemental materials of the application since I will be in the midst of finals when applications are due. I would love to talk to more people about genetic counseling school who are also applying or have applied previously. I am just now getting a list of programs that I want to apply to, which includes: Northwestern University, Emory University, University of South Carolina, Stanford University, CSU Stanislaus, Boston University, University of Michigan, and UT Houston.
  8. Hi everybody, I'm back from my long hiatus and am doing exactly what I did last year: starting the new thread for new applicants right before CSDCAS opens. Hopefully by 2018 I'll have gotten in and won't be here doing this anymore, lol. This thread is for everyone applying for 2017. That includes spring, summer, and fall applicants from any and all countries! Are you guys ready for this round? Who else is applying again that didn't get in before? How's life? etc.
  9. Hey y'all! Seeing no one started a thread, I wanted to see who's coming down to OSU this fall. I'm an international student to start my PhD in Learning technologies. How are your preparations coming along?
  10. I've been accepted into two good schools. NYU : Masters in Biotechnology & Entrepreneurship at the Tandon School of Engineering Brown University: Masters in Biotechnology. I'm facing a very difficult time deciding between these two. I am also going to be an international student. Any advice on this regard would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!
  11. Has anybody who was on the wait list for MIT Masters of aeronautics program heard back yet?

  13. I suppose we all finished submitting our applications and wait for some news. Let's talk about our issues and developments of applications. I'm waiting for 2 universities (UVic and USask) and applied for MPA.
  14. I was admitted to the USC Suzanne Dworak-Peck School of Social Work at the University of Southern California! I am so excited because it is my dream school! I really didn't think I would get in so I was not prepared for the cost of the tuition. USC is Top 12 Social Work program and I want to go their so badly, BUT is the cost of the tuition worth it??? I am waiting to hear back from Cal State LA as well. Would greatly appreciate feedback!!!
  15. Hi! Has anyone applied for the Texas Tech University Health Science Center's doctoral program in audiology for Fall 2017 admission? I had an interview on the 28th of February and have yet to receive a response from the admissions committee. I would love to hear from others who are in the same boat. It would be great to attend Texas Tech!
  16. I am super torn right now and I even more so since I only have until Monday to make a decision! I really want to go into medical slp and have been accepted to NYMC and it's my dream school but I unexpectedly got into CUNY Brooklyn as well! Money wise it would be the best choice to choose Brooklyn but my heart is at NYMC. I've heard from others that it doesn't matter where you get you're degree from but I'm wary of Brooklyn program because of some comments I've heard that aren't exactly...encouraging. Can anyone from brooklyns program attest to the rumours? I'd love to work in a hospital, would going to Brooklyn potentially make me lose connections I could have made at NYMC? Should I just take the debt?? Help!!!
  17. Hey I'm just wondering who else applied to CSUSB and has been accepted. I have been accepted into their 2 year program and I have my title iv-e interview April 17th. Just trying to see who's in my cohort (:
  18. Haven't seen a thread for the 2017 cycle so I thought I'd initiate one here. Anyone in the process of applying? I have just submitted my application to UBC and am currently working on ones for U of T, McGill, York, Calgary, Alberta and possibly Queens/Victoria. Here are my stats: Undergrad GPA: 3.6/4.33 (3.88 in last 2 years) MA (International Studies- Course Based): 3.55/4.33 MA (Political Science): 4.0/4.0 Scholarships: 5 in second MA (including SSHRC); 2 in first MA and and 3 in BA Other Awards: Rhodes Finalist, Dean's Honor Call, Best Poster Presentation Award Publications: Three published, one of them is single author; 3 submitted Conferences: Presented at two academic conferences Research: Worked as an RA in 2 semesters Enthusiastic reference letters I would appreciate any comments/evaluations? UBC is my first choice but the profs that work in my area aren't taking on PhD students so I'm not sure about what my chances are. Of course would be happy to have an offer from Toronto and McGill as well. Where is everyone else applying to?
  19. Hey guys! I'll be attending to the graduate school in political science. Any newcomers? It would be great to meet and talk about housing issues. Cheers, Nietzsche's Moustache
  20. So, it's a week after the 15th and I've yet to hear from two universities (Purdue and Pitt). I know it's probably too late but I refuse to completely lose hope. Am I just being naive? I know it's a long shot by now but I cannot believe they would keep us in uncertainty for this long without, at least, some reason. Do any of you guys have some input? I'm really just offloading and venting a little bit so any comment is welcome. Congrats to everyone that was already accepted!
  21. Hello everyone, Thought I would make a group for those applying to Master of Health Informatics at University of Toronto for Fall 2017. Perhaps we can keep each other updated regarding interviews, acceptances, etc. Other health informatics programs at other universities are welcome too! Good luck!
  22. In Tracking my application in Illinois Tech for PhD in Chemical Engineering, it shows decision: denied to applied(Check your email and other applications section for more information).In other application section they added masters in chemical engineering and status complete. What does it really mean? Does it mean i was denied for PhD and may be considered for Masters. And they have not mailed me yet.Has anyone faced similar situation? Please let me know.
  23. Hello everyone. I am applying to the EE MSc program at KAUST Fall 2017. I have gone through a technical interview, a personal interview and an administrative interview. I am currently waiting for the results of the administrative interview. It has been 4 weeks with no answer. Anyone willing to share their experience with KAUST application?
  24. I applied in January to UIC. I have seen threads from years past that said UIC was notorious for having a long delay in getting back to applicants. This is the only school I applied to (want to stay in Chicago, did private undergrad at Loyola, can't afford private masters) and I just wanted to know if anyone else had been accepted and how long it took?
