  1. Thanks TakeruK, but I will definitely be more cautious about my online presence. I was really surprised about them checking my online profile!
  2. It sounds ridiculous but I have not updated my profiles for ages, so there are some internships and honors that are not on my LinkedIn profile. I happened to check it today and found there is a visitor labeled as " Professor from XXX University". I did send my resume along with the application. But I still panicked. Have no idea if a out-of-date social media profile would affect my admissibility (my major is multimedia, guess social media profile is kind of important?) Any insights??? Also a reminder to you all, digital profiles do matter according to my experience then?
  3. Thanks ridofme and RubyBright. I am applying for master's degree for the same major as my undergraduate. My last 60 credits GPA is ok... Around 3.5... And my grades for the upper level major classes are much better than the lower level.

Does anyone has any insights into this situation. Two out of the four schools I have applied asked specifically my major GPA, and these two are my top preferences. Any ideas/insight would be appreciated.

  7. Counting down to submit my applications! Still not so sure about my personal statement. Thanks in advance for your suggestions, and please feel free to be harsh! _________________________________________________________________________________________________ Our generation is revolutionary.

  9. Hi! Everyone: I am new to the forum, and as the deadline is approaching, I am getting a little worried about my application. I would greatly appreciated if someone can chance me and give me some advices in my application process!
