  1. Hey All, Guess I'll start this thread. This will be a place for applicants applying to the 19-20 cycle to talk about their applications and such. Ask question, hopefully get some answers. When the time comes, get updates on admissions decisions!
  2. Hi everyone, I thought that I'd be nice to have a place where we can share information about the admission process. Any news from anyone?
  3. Hi all! As many of us may still be optimistically waiting to receive invitations to interviews, I was wondering if people could post the dates of interviews they know about for certain programs. This can help folks get an idea of if they're likely to be accepted or not. e.g. University of Utah - PhD in Psychology - 2/7/20
  4. Hey everyone! Today the new application cycle begins, and I thought it would be nice to start a new thread for CLS hopefuls of this upcoming summer.
  5. Hi everyone! I am just double checking I've sent in all the proper documents to the universities I've applied to. Just want to double check with you guys that the only universities that require the CASPer results to be sent to them in Canada are: McGill and UofA Thank you in advance! -AN
  6. Hey everyone,Here is the forum for the 2020 GEM Fellowship. I want to contact GEM employers but I have no clue what to write in an email? GEM Fellowship 2019 GEM Fellowship 2018 GEM Fellowship 2017 GEM Fellowship 2016 GEM Fellowship 2015 GEM Fellowship 2014 GEM Fellowship 2012

  8. Hi all, Just prepping a thread here for discussions on 2020 admissions. Feel encouraged to share what programs you're applying to, update us on decisions, and talk shop with other applicants. I'm applying to: University of Maine University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee University of California-Santa Barbara University of Tennessee Cardiff University Technological University Dublin University College London Penn State University (maybe) Best of luck to everyone! Let's keep each other in the loop.
  9. Hello, I went through the DrPH 2019 thread and I found it quite informative. I will be applying for DrPH in Fall 2020 and thought to open this forum so others who will also be applying can join in. Looking forward to connecting to the others interested in this program.
  10. Hey all! I haven’t seen a thread like this that is specific to Canada so thought I’d start one. I’ve applied to York, McMaster and UofT for 2020 admission to an MA in polisci. I hope this is an okay number of apps, I know some do a lot more. I’ve also got a few questions if anybody would be able to answer! How are the programs/depts at these unis, how do they compare to each other? York entices me due to it’s supposed left-wing nature but UofT is obviously much more prestigious. I’m unsure as to the quality of the specific programs, I find it’s hard to find info on this type of thing. Also anyone know about the competitiveness of admissions for the programs? What determines admission (ex is a really good GPA in my final year + distinction enough to raise my chances?)
  11. Bonjour à tous, à toutes! I've applied to several PhD programs in French (some : NYU, Yale, Princeton, Brown, UVA, Cornell, etc.) and I'm most impatiently waiting to hear any news ... so far, the radio silence is starting to get to me. Has anyone heard anything ... anything at all (from anywhere - doesn't have to be the above listed schools)? Any news or information would be appreciated immensely! I'm an Early Modernist currently finishing an MA with several niche areas of research, so for the purpose of anonymity, I'm going to leave it at that. Wishing everyone good luck and an awesome 2020!
  12. Hello all! Was surprised that I couldn't find an existing discussion about the Humanity in Action fellowship...there's also very little information about the program online. Any other applicants for this cycle? I applied with a preference for all but the Atlanta program. This was my second time applying for HIA...hoping for a different result this time around, or at least an interview!
  13. So the old thread is a treasure trove of advice, but I think half a decade and mostly dead discussion calls for a new iteration of this thread. As March is now underway and people are getting a good idea of their cycle, I'd like to get your perspectives on what went right, what went wrong, and what has been helpful/unhelpful to you. If you could, please provide what your aspirations and/or expectations were going into the cycle and how you believed you performed relative to those goals. What advice would you pass on for someone going through this process at the end of the year? This can cover anything from the start of the process until now that you think might be helpful to the novice applicant. Also, big shout out to @MtnDuck for maintaining that behemoth of a spreadsheet this year.

  15. Hi everyone! I applied to master's programs because I went to a small liberal arts college and my professors said I was probably not prepared well enough for a PhD. All of the programs I applied to are research-based, with the intent to prepare one for a doctoral program. My goal is to obtain a PhD and teach at an undergraduate institution. I will likely end up studying social psych for a PhD, but the master's programs tend to be labelled either general or experimental. Because I applied to master's programs rather than PhD's, the deadlines are not until Feb/Mar, which is why my GRE test date is tomorrow. That being said: I'm currently freaking the heck out because I take the GRE tomorrow and I know I'm going to do awful. Just absolutely abysmal. For one, I have absolutely no skill when it comes to math! I've always been bad at it and in studying for this test I've had to re-teach myself basic math going all the way back to about second grade. That's how much I don't know math. The other problem is that I have horrible test anxiety and I know the GRE is designed to confuse and trick you. I've been studying diligently but still my estimated scores (according to my practice sessions on Magoosh) are 145-150 for Quantitative and 148-153 for Verbal. :( I know that this doesn't reflect my abilities as a student, though! The rest of my application is, in my own opinion, decent. I have a very good personal statement, 3 strong LOR's, a 3.9 overall GPA (with only one B in all my psych classes), 2 years experience as a TA for Statistics for the Social Sciences, an REU program from this summer, one research award from my school (at which I presented my paper), and 3 posters (two secondary data analysis and one experimental social psychology study of my own design), which were all presented on campus during research symposiums, with one poster presented at a regional conference as well. In addition to those factors, I'm also a member of the honors college, Psi Chi, Alpha Chi (honors society for top 10% of the class) and I'm president of Sigma Tau Delta (the English honorary society). I guess my question is... even if the rest of my application is decent, which I think it is, will my inevitably awful GRE score totally do me dirty on this one? I just want to get into a master's program so bad. A PhD has always been my dream and if I can't even get a master's then I feel like there's no hope for me. :(

  23. I am currently researching for any possible MS programs to apply. I know it's a bit late, but I was having quite a struggle doing this and it took me quite some time (and procrastination) to this point. Now I basically have a touch on what I am looking for, but it is still ideas instead of concrete programs. This is where I am still extremely in need of suggestions. I was mostly focused on positive psych and social psych in my undergrad days. After doing my graduate thesis, it turned out application of theories attracted me more than developing theories. So I am thinking about behavioural economics and did some digging. And then after reading some posts from @spunky, quant psych appears to me as a more realistic option job-wise and still a way to pursue my interests. Now I'm looking for good quant psych programs and possibly behavioural econ or positive psych program with strong quant focus. Is there any suggestions in programs? I am open to PhD programs, but I don't seem to be quite qualified for that. PS: a little background about me: one college level Calculus and one Statistics plus Research Method/ GRE: V163, Q161, confident to level Q to 170 if needed/ Major in Psych and Philosophy and graduate with honor/ GPA 3.77/ One paper as co-author for undergrad capstone in positive psych, a poster and several presentations for the same project Any feedback would be greatly appreciated!
  24. Hi, I'm an ivy grad who majored in Economics & Statistics, 3.7 cumulative GPA, 167 Quant/165 Verbal on GRE. I've been doing strategy for a big tech company the past 2 years and been functioning as the go-to analytics/data science person on the team. Now I want to make a full-on transition to data science (goal is to become a ds at a startup!) and am realizing that I need more training in math and statistics to thoroughly understand the stuff I'm doing. Data Science Masters at Stanford, Harvard, and Columbia are my top choices. I'm also considering Statistics masters as well, since I want to hone in on the modeling/statistical part of data science. Although I have a ton of projects and experience at my current job & Kaggle applying machine learning/statistics, I don't have any research experience. I took 2-3 machine learning/data mining courses and 4-5 econometrics classes in college, and plan to get 2 rec letters from each field. I also did an online certificate program from MIT in Big Data. Do you think I stand a chance for statistics masters or data science? Would also appreciate any and all tips on crafting out my SOP. I'm so much more used to writing professional resumes... Thank you!
  25. It's definitely on the early side, but I figured I might as well start the 2018 version of this thread! (I was just procrastinating studying for finals searching for a Facebook group for my chosen program, and I found last year's version of this post.) Definitely more efficient than scanning the Results page, etc. If you create a group, please post a link here! When others commit to a school, they can find the groups here. Congrats to everyone, and best of luck to all those still waiting and/or deciding!
