  1. When graduating with a PhD in clinical psychology, does the prestige of your graduate program effect your career in the short and long term? My career goals are centered around academic research with an interest in consulting. I'm wondering if the national reputation of a program (ie. graduating from a school in the top ten vs. top 50) is a significant factor in the trajectory of your career.
  2. Hi all, I'd like to know which German universities' mathematics or statistics departments have the strongest reputation in the area of probability theory and mathematical statistics. I'm currently applying to a variety of German master's programs in mathematics, applied mathematics, and statistics, but -- not having been immersed in research myself -- I don't know which of these has the best reputation (particularly internationally) for research in the areas that I'd like to pursue. If anyone out there has a bit of insight, I'd really appreciate your feedback.
  3. Hi all, I'm super confused about which Masters program to go for. As of now, I have admission at the Stockholm School of Economics (Msc in Economics, specialization in International Econ), MSc Economics and Management of Govt and Intll organizations at Bocconi (100% scholarship and free accommodation), and Masters in Intll Trade, Finance and Development at the Barcelona GSE. I want to get into policy research and international economics as a profession. Would you all have any idea regarding the reputations of these schools and their genuine placement records. The Barcelona program is brilliant in curriculum but it is a nine-months course. Is that too little? Also waiting for the Masters in International Economics at the Graduate Institute Geneva but that response is due in March. I'd love some ideas on the general reputation of a one-year masters in Economics without plans for a PhD. Would love to hear some ideas!
  4. Hi, Anyone have thoughts on the reputations/strengths/weaknesses of these departments of religion? Santa Barbara, UNC Chapel-Hill, Rice. (I know determinations of 'best program' are relative. I'm searching for impressions of the departments, reputations they have within the field, insider-info, etc.) Best regards, all.
  5. I got into these two schools and another school (UT Houston, which I'm likely to reject). Funding UC Irvine is offering me a generous stipend guaranteed for next 5 years + full tuition waiver UCLA - offered only some part of the tuition When I asked them, they directed me to a link with bunch of fellowships and TA applications. Basically, you have to be "aggressive and secure funding for yourself" is the thing I heard from almost all of the people I talked. The tuition is too much for me to pay right now. I dont want to pay for my PhD Program UCI is a newer program and I dont even know their ranking. UCLA is a great program and I really like my potential advisor. But my advisor has no funding for me. They basically asked me to look for professors who have fundings and ask to work with them - which is confusing! How would it work? I really want to go to UCLA desperately. But is it wise to make a decision about UCLA knowing that I would have to keep fighting for funds? Does the name of the school really matters all that much? UCLA certainly will have more opportunities than UCI but what do I do! Should I go for secure funding for 5 years or better school reputation (possibly student debt) for my PhD? Can someone please weigh in?
  6. Hello! I applied to about five planning schools this year, in geographic tandem with my partner. In the end, I was only accepted at Columbia (with no funding), which I primarily applied to due to proximity to my partner's first choice. Before I make a final decision about attending Columbia, I was hoping to get a better idea of the program's focus. On paper it sounds really good but I was wondering how current and past students felt about the program? Do you feel like you got a good technical foundation? Did you have any qualms about the program's reputation when you went to apply for non-academic jobs? I am hoping to work in government or consulting, not really interested in an academic track. Thanks!
