  1. I don't know about Psychology specifically, but there are a lot of universities that now offer online degrees. Most of these universities list their programs online, so you should be able to easily find them on their website. You can certainly take you time to finish your masters, as online degrees usually allow for much more time flexibility than regular on-campus courses. (That's what they were made for) However, many of them have some sort of limitations that will require you to (for example) take at least 1/2/3... classes per semester/year, or to finish all required courses in a maxim
  2. Every institution differs in the way it notifies its applicants. Some universities send out all decisions within 1-2 days, others spread it out though several months. I think your best bet now is to call the department you applied to or your POI and ask for a status update on your application through the phone. As long as you didn't receive a rejection letter, there's still a chance for you to be accepted. Good Luck!
  3. No, I didn't get any funding, does that affect anything? I'm not saying I don't want to go, or else I would've simply declined. I just postponed my decision to next year, but now that I think about it, maybe i'm just over complicating things. You're right, if I end up choosing not to go, I just won't. Anyway I still have a year to think about this. Thank you for your answer, GradSchoolTruther.
  4. First of all, I apologize if this has been asked before. I was admitted into my top choice for an MS, but had to defer my enrollment until next year for various reasons (and no, it's not because I want to reapply to other schools next year). I'm wondering though, does deferring my admission bind me to the program? In other words, could I still reject the offer next year without -much- consequence? I'm not saying I want to reject it, I actually want to go there a lot! However, I don't know what could happen a year from now, so I just wanna know if i'm "stuck" with this program. The way I s
  5. MIT is definitely more "globally" renowned. If you're looking for prestige, i'd say MIT would be the better choice. That's not to say that Berkeley isn't known for being great. I'm from the middle east, and every engineering company here is not only familiar with Berkeley, but they also highly value its graduates. As for the programs, I'm not sure but I suppose they're on equal footing, with Berkeley possibly being the better candidate for civil engineering. Berkeley is after all the best public university in the US with the number 1 Civil Engineering program (US News and Reports). MIT is all-
  6. Hello ComradeTaco, I was in almost the same situation as you just a year ago. First, of all, like Takeruk said, quality is more important than quality. Don't try to do as much as possible, but rather get deeply involved in a few activities/research that you find interesting. If you're sure to want to continue in Transportation Engineering at Berkeley, then I can hopefully help you by presenting you with my personal experience. In my case, I applied this year and got accepted into UC Berkeley for the Master of Civil Engineering in Transportation. Just a heads up, the master's program
