  1. Hi everyone, I got accepted into the Educational Psychology program at the University of Illinois at Chicago (without an interview). I will be focusing in measurement and statistics. While I am happy that I am admitted, my appointed initial advisor tells me that they currently have no funding for me. But he said that all the current measurement/statistics PhD students have TA or RA assistantships. One thing he mentioned was that they faculty has four grants out for review. But they don't know of the approval date yet. If the grants are approved, then they will be able to fund new PhD s

  3. For POME, did you guys get interviewed?
  4. Do all schools offer stipend? I got into UIC, and from what I learned I have to take on an assistantship (RA, TA, or GA) of 20+ hours a week to be paid closed to $1800 a month (which I'm fine with) + tuition waiver. Are first year students allowed to work (even if they can't teach yet)? I'm just confused on how the first semester works for first year students.
  5. I'm glad I found this thread. I recently got accepted to the Ed Psych program (focusing in measurement and stats) at the University of Illinois at Chicago without an interview. I was a bit puzzled at first, because I thought interviewing was the norm. I guess the popularity of interviews vary between schools? Or does the absence of interviews mean something else?
  6. Hi everyone, I recently got accepted to UIC's Ed Psych PHD program, with a concentration in Measurement in Statistics. One thing I am puzzled by is that they offered me admissions without an interview. Is this normal? Should I be worried? I've had several email exchanges with the faculty that is temporarily assigned to be my advisor. He told me that currently all the Measurement and Stats students have have are funded by assistantships. I am an resident of New York, so the funding is definitely a factor in my decision. Is any here a UIC Education student? Or can anyone link me to someone

  8. Hi everyone, I'm re applying to two programs (one is Fordham quant psych and one is Rugters ed psych with quant focus) that I was not admitted to last year. This year I am a better and more confident candidate. Last year I experienced a few setbacks during my application period that I was not able to have a full application preparation. (A natural disaster happened my neighborhood) I'm wondering whether I should write that I am a reapplicant in my statement? Of course, if I do I will frame it professionally. But I don't know if I should write it in my statement or should I email the f
  9. Hi all, thank you for all the feedback. It has been a while since I responded. I've been working on my personal statement, but alas I am finished. Basically since I have had no intensive training in statistics, I just wrote an honest essay how I found quantitative methods, how it changed my perspective on psychology (I included how i initially wanted to be a clinical psychologist to understand the human expereince and alleviate human suffering), and through being a TA and RA I learned that quant psych could indeed perform the same mission. Therefore I would like to further my training in t
  10. Ok will do... I am currently working on the NSF application, applying for quant psych field of course. I have to submit two essays 1. Personal statement + research experience 2. My graduate research topic and my approach I don't have trouble with the first essay. Still finishing that up. But the second one I will have some major issues with, since I have to formulate a concrete research topic. I am hoping the committee will take into account that my background was not in stats? Ok some of the articles I have are: Factors Affecting the Item Parameter Estimation and Classification Accura
  11. Thanks for all the feedback, everyone! I would say that I am interested in both, educational outcome + statistical modeling. However, how broadly or specifically should I define my research interests in my statement of purpose? Would writing covariates affecting educational achievement be too broad? I was told by my professor that I should also write about my quant interest in my research interests section. I'm trying to write the same paragraphs about how I developed interest in the quant field and what I did as an undergrad, and tweak the last paragraph where I talk about my researc
  12. Hi everyone, I am applying applying to Quantitative Psychology and Educational Psychology programs which offer a Quantitative Methods concentration. The schools I will be applying to are UC Berkeley, UCLA, USC, UC Riverside, UI- Chicago, University of Washington - Seattle, Fordham University, Rutgers - New Brunswick, and CUNY Graduate Center (but for CUNY this will be I/O Psych, because I've been working with a professor in Baruch for almost two years and got familiar with the program). I have a BA in psych, have 2+ years of research experience, worked on 3 projects ( 1 of which was my o
