    MA vs PhD

    Hello all. My question concerns the benefits of obtaining a History MA before applying to a PhD History program. I finished my undergrad degree in May 2010, and it was always my plan to wait a few years after graduating before applying to graduate school. I'm not sure why, but that was always the way I envisioned doing it. Grad school has always been in my thoughts however, and I plan to spend the next year applying for the Fall 2013 term. I guess I don't really have a more specific question other than, 'What are the benefits and drawbacks of each path?' Applying to an MA program first, versus applying straight to a PhD program. One thing I've noticed so far is that PhD programs seem to be more common, so maybe it would be easier to find the right place for me. Just a thought. I don't have anything more detailed than that yet, so I was hoping people who have gone each route can share their thoughts and perhaps this will help me tease out some of the specifics of my situation. Any info is appreciated, and feel free to ask me any question. Thanks for the help.
  2. I am applying for the Ph.D. in Film Studies programs at various universities for Fall 2012, and wanted to see if anyone had applied before and can give me my chances of being accepted. Here's my academic background: GRE: 160 Verbal (86%), 5.5 Writing (96%), 151 Quantitative (51%) B.A. in Anthropology from UC Berkeley, G.P.A. 3.00 B.F.A. in Film from California College of the Arts, GPA 3.69 M.F.A. in Film from Art Center College of Design, GPA 3.70 I wrote a Masters Thesis on the Films of Oliver Stone, and took many film seminars and theory courses for my B.F.A and M.F.A. degrees, and wrote many research papers on topics like Jean Luc Godard, Stanley Kubrick, French New Wave, etc. I have three very strong letters of recommendations from professors who know my research interests very well, and I even got an A+ in one of their seminars. Also, I have worked as a Film/Video Specialist for the County of Los Angeles for three years, directing, writing, and editing documentaries, PSAs, and commercials. I have emailed several professors already, and have gotten positive responses mostly from UC Santa Barbara and USC professors, who have said my research interests are interesting and also match their research interests. My main research interests are the new wave of modern Asian films, and also films from the French New Wave period of the 1960s. Here are the schools I'm applying to: UC Santa Barbara Berkeley UC Irvine Harvard USC Brown These are all for Ph.D. in Film Studies and/or Visual/Media Studies programs. Anyone can give me advice on my chances, or have had experience applying to these schools already?
  3. Hello everyone, I have a small question. I applied to York University, Toronto for Phd in Environmental Studies. Before applying, I contacted the potential supervisor with an e-mail which indicates my phd project and my background. Additionally, the professor has a very good book on the subject and I mentioned that book in the email because I have already read it. Additionally, I am a part-time lecturer in a university and my class is very related to my phd subject. I also sent the syllabus of my class. The professor answered me positively and he said that he also wants to study with me and he will deal with my application in the committee. He said that he will accept me but he should ask to committee. The professor has a very powerful profile in the faculty. Do you think that his application will be accepted? Do you have any idea? Best wishes.

    Brandeis' PhD Programme in English

    How does the English PhD programme in English ( particularly Victorian Studies) at Brandeis compare with others? I looked through their website and found it interesting... but I would like to have other people respond to this... I am an international student, and it is a little difficult to place all these schools in perspective. I am aware of the problems involved in the ranking system.. i am looking for a general response to how the programme is thought of...
  5. Anyone else applying to Masters' or Ph.D. programs in the UK for fall 2012? Now that I'm done with my American applications, I'm in the middle of apps to Oxford, Cambridge, UC London, Edinburgh, Durham, and maybe a few others. I'm applying for Masters degrees there first (MPhil, Ms.T.) because, since I only have a BA, I can't apply directly to their Ph.D. programs. I think the Masters programs will be a great preparation for a doctoral research course in a British university. I like the looks of a lot of these programs, especially the independence their course structures provide, and their focus on historical contextual readings that put less emphasis on theory. I'm pretty excited about my prospects, especially since these UK applications do not require GRE scores (my only flaw!) . The UK English departments make clear what they look for in applicants; they're more straightforward than most of the department pages for American schools I've applied to. Still, I have some reservations about the UK programs. --> Funding is much more scarce. Sure, the tuitions are lower, but still it's a far cry from the tuition waivers + living stipend most US programs I'm applying to are promising. Also, unless it's Oxford or Cambridge, I get the impression from my professors that British humanities programs are poorly funded in general. Perhaps this is too much a blanket statement? I always thought places like Edinburgh, UCL, and St. Andrews had top funding as well. --> I've heard from my professors and mentors at my undergraduate university that a doctoral degree from a UK program can pose problems for someone seeking a job in American academia. It's not that the UK programs are thought to be less rigorous; rather, it's about the teaching experience. Since UK doctoral programs only take about three years to complete, there is virtually no time for teaching opportunities, and they do not encourage them. Hence, one may be a weaker candidate in the American job market that's already glutted with American Ph.D.s who do have teaching experience from their six-to seven-year programs. --> I'm not sure what faculty interaction is like compared to American programs. The websites at Oxford and Cambridge promise lots of faculty contact, but I've heard from students familiar with these programs that it's nothing compared with the interaction at American universities. Despite the negatives, if I can't get into a good American program, I'd welcome the opportunity to go to the UK. Indeed, all other issues aside, I would rather spend my graduate studies in Britain, just out of personal preference for the experience.
  6. Hi, I am currently a Statistics and Economics major in my Junior year at an accredited Big Ten university. I am hoping to go into Biostatistics after I graduate, but am having a lot of trouble finding admission statistics. Though obviously none of this is set in stone, this is an approximation of what my GPA's would look like. My Expected GPA's consist of: GPA: 3.298 Statistics GPA: 3.357 Math/Stat GPA: 3.293 Degree GPA: 3.443 College of Natural Science GPA (including Degree GPA): 3.472 Economics GPA: 3.600 GPA of classes excluding Stat, Math, and Econ: 3.115 My Relevent Courses: Biostatistics Calculus I-III Differential Equations Linear Algebra (Proof Emphasis) Algebra Based Statistics I Multivariate Probability Multivariate Statistics Actuarial Mathematics Statistical Computing Econometric I & II Introduction to Programming I am currently looking into going into the University of Michigan for either a M.S. in Biostatistics or a Ph.D in Biostatics, or possibly attending Grand Valley State University first to get an M.S. in Biostatistics and then attempt to get into UMich's Ph.D program. Do I have a good chance of getting into Michigan? I realize there are many variables but any insight would be nice. I don't have any intern experience but I do have volunteer work, tutoring experience, and have passed the Probability Exam P/1 for Actuaries. Any insight is appreciated; average GPA's, GRE's, acceptance rates, ect would be great!

  8. Hi I'm a first time poster here. I go to Emory University, and the math dept here offers a 4 year BS/MS in math. Here is the link: http://mathcs.emory.edu/programs-undergrad/deg-math-bsms.php Emory's math dept is only ranked 63rd in the nation though. How would doing this look on an application to top Math Phd. programs compared to just doing a pure math major? Is this worth pursuing. I might also be interested in MFE programs; in terms of admission to those, would I be better off with the BS/MS or just a math major and lots of programming and finance courses? Thank you
  9. How important do you guys think it is to talk to a faculty member before applying to a grad school? I am planning on applying to MS/PhD in Statistics. I have been reading a lot of papers written by the faculties at several universities, and I find myself quite apprehensive about writing to a professor, to whom I am a stranger, and asking him about all sort of things. Some of the FAQ's in universities clearly stated that inquiries about admission chances to faculties are at best frowned upon and at worst detrimental to applicant's chances of being admitted. So, I was hoping if any one in here had some advise for me. I did look into a lot of programs, and most of the top ones have statistics with heavy Bayesian inclinations. Although I come from a econometric background, application of Bayesian statistics is quite exciting. I am particularly interested in application of Bayesian statistics in policy analysis. Although this method is quite common in law, this seems to be a relatively unexplored territory for other public policy development and evaluation. Do you guys think, it is right to chat with a professor about my expectation and his thoughts about it? My rationale is that it is better for me to get a view from the faculty about my idea before applying because many posts in here have stated clearly the dangerous misfortune of getting into a program with different faculty research interest. Thanks in advance. Cheers.
  10. Hello all, My name is Luis, this is my first time posting here. Nice to meet you all! I'm applying for a PhD in Computer Science, specifically in Machine Learning, Artificial Intelligence, and Robotics. My plan is to apply to two top-tier schools (e.g., MIT, Stanford, Berkeley), three or four schools where I have a realistic chance of getting in given my credentials, and one or two safe schools. However, I'm having a though time assessing which tier of schools is the "right" one for me. At the moment I'm looking into Top 20-50 schools such as GeorgiaTech, Michigan (Ann Arbor), Washington, North Carolina (Chapel Hill), UCSD, UCLA, among others. However, I'm not sure if those ones are a little bit far-fetched for me. Anyone care to give a hand? For those interested, here is a summary of my credentials. Thanks for any help!

    Fall 2012 SoP HELP!!

    Hi Everybody, The time to start applications is getting frustratingly close and I am beginning to panic. What I would really like to know is if/how I should address my deficiencies (mostly low GPA) in my statement of purpose. Here are my stats: Overall GPA 3.45, Chem GPA 3.51, GRE 460V 780Q 3.5AW (retaking GRE in August) Have not yet taken chem GRE. I have been doing ongoing research (including 2 summers) for 2 years now in one lab, with a relatively famous organic chem professor, that will result in a publication before the application deadlines. (not first author). I do expect 3 solid recommendations. Also, I have done very well in all of my upper level chemistry courses (mostly A's and some A-'s) and have a consistently increasing GPA alongside an increasingly difficult work load since freshman year. I plan on applying to 10-15 schools for a Ph.D. in organic/medicinal, a handful of which are top programs like Scripps, Columbia, MIT, etc. I truly do have a great passion for research and I am very efficient in the lab. How can I convey this in my statement of purpose to make up for my low GPA/GRE scores? Thanks. P.S. If anyone else has similar credentials I would be very interested to hear about your experiences!
  12. I found a supervisor who is interested in have me as his PhD student in ETH, Zurich. However he does not have anymore funding for me. I am a Canadian and already hold an NSERC PGS at the moment. I want to switch labs to ETH. Apparently the funding from NSERC is not enough to live in Switzerland. I have two questions 1. Does anyone know what are the scholarships, fellowships, grants, that I am eligible to apply for? 2. How rigorous is the evaluation of NSERC in letting their award holders to change research location/supervisor? Thanks!
  13. Please review my profile and tell me if it is worth my time and money (do I have a chance?) to apply for PhD at UC Berkeley. I received my bachelor's in Computer Science from a low-ranked state university. Their program is modestly ranked on the NRC scale (S-Rank High - Low = 13- 49). USNews ranks the program at 99. I believe that this is the least appealing aspect of my profile. Does anyone know how much attention admission committees pay to this aspect of an application? I would guess that it is quite important, judging by the fact that virtually all of the current graduate students at UCB attended prestigious undergraduate universities. General Stats : GPA: 3.95 GRE : Q:790 V:650 AW:4.5 No Subject GRE 1 Published Paper in a mid-level International Conference 1 Industrial Internship (ExxonMobil) Wrote Undergraduate Honors Thesis Extra Information: -Area of Interest: Natural Language Processing -Currently studying Russian in Saint Petersburg, Russia for year after receiving Bachelor's degree -Changed my major from geography to computer science in my sophomore year so I didn't have much time to build an impressive resume -2 Letters of Recommendation will be good-excellent and will concern my research potential. 1 professor received his PhD in Mathematics at UCB (Will this have any benefit or is that a stupid idea?) . The other letter will also be good-excellent but will not have as much information on research, only some honors credit project that I did for the professor. Is anyone else in a similar position coming from an unknown undergraduate university? Do I have a chance at UC Berkeley or should I save my 80 dollars? P.S. I am of course applying to other schools where I know I will be admitted
  14. Hello, Just discovered this forum and it looks like a friendly, helpful group, and I could definitely use some guidance. Last year I was able to take advantage of a last second opportunity to begin an MPhil/PhD program in the UK. I've been self-financing my studies for the first year but unfortunately I won't be able to continue to do that indefinitely. I'm hoping to find either grants or loans so that I won't have to switch to part-time studies to finance my education. It appears that I'm ineligible for some of the traditional funding options. For example, Fullbrights are not available for anyone who is already a resident of the UK. And for other awards you can't have already started. Any and all suggestions would be most appreciated! Thank you.
  15. Dear all, I won't beat around the bush. I'm looking for advice, and browsers who have the time or inclination to respond will be received with great alacrity. I graduated in architecture (1st class hons, equivalent of magna cum laude, sorry for the Brit-speak!) from Cambridge in 2010. But since then decided that I want to pursue PhD studies in Comparative Literature (not as random as it looks, I've always been extremely literary). I am Chinese and therefore very interested in a comparative stance through the perspective of literature. My great anxiety, foreseeable no doubt, is my lack of formal training. Is there any chance on earth that I will be considered, let alone taken onto a PhD programme, with this, parlous state of affairs? I'm not being as presumptuous as it may perhaps appear so far...(please hear me out!) As I've actually always wanted to study literature, and thus have always sustained literary pursuits. My third year dissertation focusing on 'place' in the novel, was recommended by my supervisor for publication. The tentative proposals I have sent to North American Universities has been well received. One professor at a top university said that she read my proposal with 'interest and admiration for its richness and breadth of scope', and several other professors have said they are very interest and encouraged me to apply. I'm bilingual in Chinese and English. Reading ability in Classical Chinese. Also reading ability in French and Spanish to first year Undergraduate level. So enough boasting, here's the BUT. BUT as I'm sure you all know, it's not your supervisor who ultimately makes the decision. The one director of postgraduate studies that I have spoken to, has stressed my lack of formal training... So because I'm depressed and at my wit's end, I open my dilemma to the floor, presuming there's anyone remotely interested. What to do? Do I tantrum my way onto a comparative literature master for this year (and spend a heap of money)? Do I pursue my own studies at home and hope for the best come application cycle? Is there anyone willing to share relevant experience in this field (i.e. phd with only BA; changing subject areas) My gratitude for your forbearance. And the very best of luck for all your own pursuits.

    USC 2012 Spring Admits!

    Hi everyone....mind sharing ur profile if u got admits of graduate studies for 2012 Spring? I am still waiting for my decision from USC - my dream school!
  17. Hi, friends! Would it be a bad thing to get my PhD in Social Psychology from the same university from which I got my Bachelor's? It's a great university in rankings, but again--it would be the same one. What are your thoughts?
  18. hello there, i'm planning to apply to cognitive neuroscience phd programs this fall, and i have a couple of questions regarding the process. here's some info about me: psychology ba graduate gpa 3.6 studying neuroscience msc. gpa 3,5 will be taking the gre this month will be attending neuroscience summer school on september have basic knowledge on matlab, spm so here are my questions: 1. i'm mainly interested in neural representations of semantic memory. so i specifically searched for potential supervisors with interests in memory and representations. however it turns out that it's a trend in neuroscience community. and i formed a long list of programs, about 20. :S i don't know where to start, or which faculty members to contact. how should i narrow this list? (THE LIST: berkeley, stanford, ucla, u chicago, u illinois urbana champaign, northwestern, johns hopkins, brandeis, boston u, boston c, MIT, princeton, CUNY, NYU, CMU, u penn, brown, toronto, mcgill, UCL, cambridge...) 2. i have about 2-3 months of research experience in neuroscience. i worked as an RA in 3 projects (1 year) when i was an undergrad. no publications. (will have more once i start collecting data for my thesis) is this a huge problem? 3. does my research proposal have to be a rigid commitment, or can I change it once i start the phd? is it just an essay to show the colleges that i am capable of planning a research, or do i have to go through with it once i write it? 4. lastly, do i have to find faculty members who have identical research interests as mine, or is it okay if there's a marginal connection? as in semantic memory, instead of what i have. i appreciate all the help i can get!
  19. Im going to apply for a PhD this December. Plan A is the security studies cluster at the Woodrow Wilson School, Princeton. I finished my masters in international security and terrorism from U. Nottingham, UK. I've done two internships since then (one at a think tank in New Delhi, and one at Nanyang Technological uni. (The S. Rajaratnam School of int'l studies more specifically) in Singapore). I also worked with the Guardian for a bit, and did some field research in Bhutan. I should have one (hopefully 2) publications in reasonably respectable journals by the time I apply (both papers are on Chinese military modernization). I also did some work on a couple of books on Islamist extremism. My GRE score is ~1350 (730 for math, 620 verbal). I speak a fair bit of Urdu, and fluent Hindi. My recommenders are fairly reputed counter-terrorism/security and Chinese military experts. Do you think I have a reasonable shot of getting in to a good school for security studies? Appreciate any input!
  20. Hi, all: Quick question for you: when deciding on who to admit, how heavily -- if at all -- do admissions committees and/or graduate directors weigh applicants' past honors and/or scholarships? Are they a bump at all? Or are they just expected? Obviously, other bits of one's application will be weighed more heavily than these, but I am just wondering how much, if at all, they might contribute to one's chances for admission. Thanks in advance for whatever insight you can offer -- and good luck to all this fall's applicants! Best, Jerry
  21. Hi Grad Cafe people! So I'm currently working on my PhD applications. I plan on doing research in AI, specifically cognitive modeling and reasoning systems. I have most of my schools picked out (Berkeley, U of TX, UC San Diego, USC, Northwestern, U of CO, plus a few others), but I'm starting to wonder if I should apply to some computationally oriented cognitive science programs too. I have a gut feeling towards CS, just because that's where my background is and that's the field I think of when I think about AI, but I know there's a lot of cool AI working being done my cognitive scientists. I'd like the option of working in industry or academia after I finish my program, so that's another thing to consider. So what would the advantages of studying AI through CS be when compared to a Cog Sci program? How would my job prospects be different? Any recommendations for programs to check out? Thanks!
  22. Just hoping to get some feedback from current students and applicants. I graduated with a BS (bio major) in 2010 and since have been working full time while "figuring out" what I want to do next. I've always been an inquisitive person and have been working in a lab environment for over 4 years now, one of which was spent at the NIH. I am currently in the process of applying to grad school (interdisciplinary bio PhD programs), and feel that I have a strong application, but my heart still isn't set on it. A PhD just seems like such a long, grueling ordeal from all of the horror stories that I have heard, but I feel that unless I want to spend my entire career as a tech performing menial benchwork, it's my only option. I don't think I want to become a PI or go the academia route, so I guess a PhD isn't "necessary," but I think that I'm quickly approaching a glass ceiling with just my BS. I'm not even sure that I want to be at the bench forever. Anyone have any thoughts to share? What are my options without a PhD? What other doors will I open with a PhD outside of research?
  23. Hello guys, I got my B.Sc in mechanical engineering with a GPA of 12/20 it is equal to something between 2.4 and 2.6 . I got my M.Sc in biomedical engineering with a GPA of 16.5/20 which is equal to something between 3.3 and 3.4 . I have 5 years of work experience, 3 patents (one of them is U.S. patent), 5 papers (IEEE,ASME,journal of biomechanics) I got 103 in TOEFL IBT and 800Q, 450V, 3.5W in GRE what are my chances of getting into a PhD program in universities such as Washington University or UCLA ? Thanks for your time and consideration
  24. Hello all, I am in my first semester of an industrial/organizational doctoral program, and I'm quickly learning that this field might not be right for me. Obviously, it would have been better if I had figured that out before I started, but I had totally different expectations for it. I've been thinking that I would have been much better off going into clinical, which is where I've been finding myself most drawn to when doing my coursework. I find I/O dry, detached, and irrelevant. But here's the problem: I am fully funded by the I/O department at my university, so I obviously cannot simply "switch" over to clinical. If I'm not mistaken, I would have to completely drop out, and then re-apply to clinical programs next year. I am wondering if anyone has had any experience with changing doctoral focus - i.e., how much would "dropping-out" of I/O hurt my chances of being accepted elsewhere into a clinical program? Also, I'd love some insight into "dropping-out" in general; how badly does the department take it? I don't want to burn any bridges and for an I/O program, my school is great, but I just don't think it's right for me. Should I just suck it up since I signed up for this in the first place, and they are funding me? (Funding is on a year-to-year basis, so while I would probably be funded again next year, the money they are giving me is not contingent on the entire 5-6 years.) I would really appreciate any insights. Thank you in advance! -Confused grad
