  10. Greetings fellow forum goers, I just found out that I've been accepted to the PhD program in political science at Washington University in St. Louis. Given that the majority of my interests fall under the categorical confines of empirical legal studies and judicial politics, I'm fairly certain that I'll end up attending WashU for graduate study. That being said, I'd love to get a head start in getting to know my (potential) cohort, so if you or anyone you know has gotten in to the PhD program in polisci at WUSTL, please let me know! Best, CS

So I will be applying to 8 at the least (all NY schools).

  19. Hello All, I am planning to apply to IHEID MDev program for fall 2017 in march deadline. I finished my undergrad in 2004, and have worked for 8 years in technology arena. I wanted to ask if anyone with work experience has applied for this program. Moreover my biggest problem is that I am not in touch with my professors, and I am having hard time to reach out to them. I talked to the admission office at IHEID, and they stress that get at least one academic recommendation. Do you think if I get both professional recommendations that will weaken my application. I still have time, and will try to talk to professors, but chances to get a reference from them is really less. I will really appreciate help from anyone with similar experience. What did you do? Thanks in advance.

  23. Hi everyone! I know many of you are either going through the application process or are already pursuing your MSWs. I just had a question regarding applying as an undergrad. Do any of you think it will negatively affect my application to apply during my fall semester of my senior year? The only reason I have thought this is because if I submit and application in October or November by fall semester grades will not be published yet therefore ill be applying without them. My concern is that maybe I should be waiting until january to apply so that they have a greater idea of what my graduating GPA is. I currently have a 3.8 but am curious what the protocol would be for an applicant like me who still has 30 some credits to complete prior to matriculating in an MSW program. please let me know what any of you think! More info being I am applying to Fordham, Columbia, U Conn and a few smaller schools. thanks!
  24. Hey guys! Today I received an offer to come for an interview from Southern Mississippi's counseling psychology program. I am super excited since I get to meet with my desired faculty member but is it strange that I'm already hearing back after I just submitted my application last week? How long do you guys think I should wait to reply so I don't seem too desperate? I wasn't expecting to hear back from any of the schools until January so I'm still a little in shock. I figured we could use this thread to hear where everyone is getting in and for any questions we may have about the interview process!
  25. I applied to UNC Chapel Hill Biomedical Sciences Ph. D program. I haven't heard anything yet from bbsp (neither good nor bad), yet. I am very very nervous a time passes. I thought this could be a good platform to share updates with each other. Anybody heard anything?
