  1. There seem to be a lot of threads asking the same thing popping up lately and I figured it might make sense to make an overall guide thread and then those who feel their answers still haven’t been adequately answered can post below for an idea of what their chances are. Here is a brief rundown of factors affecting your likelihood of getting into top-tier and well respected programs. If you fall below par in any one of these factors you can bump it up by being stellar in one of the others. I'll add to this if others point out other things I've left out. School requirements: Your first s
  2. Hello world! Has anyone done the video response as part of SIPA's admissions package? I know it's being implemented as of 2017 application cycle, so I am wondering if there are any Spring 2017 candidates that have already done it. Helpful tips, feedback, etc. would be much appreciated!
  3. If you're not getting a response/ reply-back from the potential PI, are you still going to apply for that program? I'm not sure whether they're just busy, uncertain, not taking any students, or simply have no interest in my application. Are there anyone who has an experience when you didn't got a response but still got accepted?
  4. Hi, I hope all of you stay safe in such a difficult situation. I'm planning to apply to the CS (to be specific, HCI) for the upcoming Fall 2022 semester. I know this might sound a bit 'out of time' question, but I'd like to ask all of you about my profile and gain some insight on my future application process. I have several top-tier pubs with low gpa, and I'm having trouble looking for some references for my future application. If possible, please give me any of the advice including evaluation of my profile, future direction of improvement, or some possible target schools.
  5. Dear all, New member here. I am thinking of applying to Rockefeller, and wondering if anyone here will be applying to their Biosciences PhD program this Fall? I would really appreciate any general information and advice about the application process from individuals who have already been accepted in previous years and how current applicants are preparing in general, as well as things like non-official GPA requirements (Current GPA is 3.3, it can be fixed but will be known after application deadline ... is it worth applying?). Many thanks in advance.
  6. Hi All! I have been a lurker for quite some time, and have noticed that a significant number of people are senior graduate students or have some affiliation with the recruitment process of various graduate programs. I had a quick question about if anyone has heard anything about the upcoming application season (2020/2021). I definitely understand that the previous season just wrapped up, but with the recent developments of coronavirus/quarantine, does anyone know if applications/interviews/visits/etc will even be conducted this year (probably worst case scenario if they do not), or
  7. Hi! I am applying to biostatistics/comp bio PhD and MS programs for Fall 2021. I spent two years studying bio and then transferred to statistics. I am kinda of worried about if I am qualified enough for PhD, especially that I didn't take many grad level math classes. I am gonna take some this fall but some schools have very early deadline so they won't see my grades. My GPA is not super high either ( The school I went to is famous for low GPA ). So I am applying to some MS programs as well, in case I cannot get into phD. Please let me know if the schools that I apply are too high or low for
  8. I'm planning on applying for grad school this year, pursuing a PhD in physics or astronomy. Do they ever look at your social media (facebook, twitter, instagram) when you apply? This is probably a silly thing to worry about, but I'm wondering because I've become more outspoken on social media in the past year. I have been engaging in discussions (some might call them arguments 😅) with people in comment sections... Mostly expressing my opinions on US 'politics', social issues, religion, etc (if it matters, I am leftist and agnostic). I'm never disrespectful of others' views, it's just that I am
  9. I am a 27 year old economist with 3 years of professional experience in data science. I finally made up my mind about studying a master's in data science and plan to send in my applications as soon as October to multiple schools in the UK and Canada. Unfortunately, I do not meet the so called 2:1 honors degree requirement. A 2:1 degree is the equivalent to an 8.5 out of 10 in my country's system and I'm a long way off, sitting at 8 out of 10. How will this impact my applications? I would like to know whether or not schools will immediately reject me. Has anyone here been in a similar situ
  10. Hey everyone so I started this thread because there was no thread for Fordham’s MSW program for Fall 2020 ... unless there is (sorry) I applied Feb. 1 2020 and am waiting now ~ to the Westchester campus. Let me know what you guys did.
  11. Hi, I am planning to apply for the graduate school at University of Idaho. I have the funding support as a graduate research assistant. However, with this funding support do I have to submit the proof of financial documents while submitting application or not?
  12. Hello everyone! First poster here. I have a few questions and jumping from forum to forum has not helped. I am a non traditional student (40 y/o) graduating this fall with a BA in Art History. Since I am older and have a family which includes a 5 y/o child I can't really apply to many programs. To top this off, there is no Art History graduate program where I live in North Florida, just one at 1.5hrs away and it is an MA at a very standard university. The ideal program for me would be Emory because I can easily move to Atlanta. Outside of that I don't have plenty of choices, just an MA at Geor
  13. 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!
  14. Hi all, I recently applied to the MPPA program at Carleton. Just wanted to make a thread so people can discuss admissions, funding, etc! Where did you apply and what are the statuses of your apps?
  15. Hello all! I'm interested in applying for an MS in Biostatistics (Fall 2021) but am having trouble finding admissions data so I was wondering what you all thought about my application profile and how much of a chance I stood at the schools I'm interested in. Here's my profile: Undergrad Institution: The College of William and Mary Undergrad Major: B.S. Self-designed major called Epidemiology & Biostatistics GPA: 3.80 Relevant Courses: Math: Calc I and II, Linear Algebra, Multivariable Calculus, Prob. and Stat. for Scientist, Statistical Data Analysis Biology
  16. Hi there, I am planning to re-apply to PhD programs in the Fall 2020 semester. I applied when I was a senior in Undergrad, didn't get in, so I went for my masters' instead. Now, I'm finishing up my masters' and will apply again. For my personal statement, would it be wise or stupid for me to include that I am re-applying? I wasn't sure as I was thinking I could write how I am still determined for a PhD program hence my reapplying and I have done x amount of research/work within these 2 years to improve my application. Or, is this unnecessary? I would really appreciate any feed
  17. Hey everybody, Im looking to apply to various programs and have been doing research + getting everything ready etc etc .... I already have 3 reference letters(2 profs who taught me + 1 who supervised me for honors thesis) from last year as I applied to medical school and didnt get(yay) in and im just going to ask the referees to make some adjustments in the letter to fit grad schools if needed. Main question is how is everyone generally going through with the process of getting the letters and how many schools are you applying to. Also has anyone used interfolio ? Im thinking of pu
  18. Hello all! So I'm going to be applying to some Biostatistics MS programs in the Fall and am not sure exactly who I should ask to write my recommendation letters. Right now, my plan is to ask my major advisor (I took his biostatistics class and TA-ed for it in a subsequent semester), my psychology research lab professor (I've been working in her lab for 4 years), and my choir director (at my university choir is a 1-credit class. I've been a part of the choir for 4 years and was our fundraising chair, vice president, and president consecutively in the latter 3 years.). I've chosen these professo

  20. Hi everyone! I noticed that threads like this don't include information about whether or not people were accepted, waitlisted, and/or rejected. If you applied during any year before 2020 and have results, please post below. 😀 I noticed math/physics have similar threads which DO include acceptance and rejection results from people. Wanted to start something similar for biology! Undergrad Institution: (School or type of school, such as big state, lib arts, ivy, technical, foreign (what country?)...

  21. 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.
  22. It's best to get advice from faculty members on this front, but their time is limited, so I thought it might be useful for all of us gearing up for the 2021 cycle, or celebrating/healing from the 2020 cycle to talk about our apps and their weak spots. Here's a summary, I guess, of my app: Stats: GRE: V161 (88th percentile), Q151 (41st percentile), A5.5 (98th percentile) Undergrad GPA: 3.97 at a public research university Graduate GPA: 3.96 at a small, unranked rhet/comp program Teaching experience: worked as a TA (instructor of record) for two years, have adjuncte
  23. Hi all! I wanted to start a thread for those applying to MSW/PhD programs. I am currently considering applying to a ton of programs to increase my chances of acceptance. I already have an MPP. It looks like most programs want you to already have a masters prior to applying. I have also worked in healthcare and health policy for about 8 years. Stats, if interested: - BS from Cornell. GPA: 3.4, but I was pre-med and took a ton of life science courses. Excellent grades in social science courses. - MPP from Brown. They do not do GPA and only give whole letter grades (no +
  24. Hi everyone!! I applied for three Master’s programs for Fall 2020. I have yet to hear back from two of them. But my third program reached out to me to come visit and said they would help with expenses that visiting would accrue since I’m out of state. Their applications don’t close till March though. Is this a good sign that they reached out to me before the applications even close or is this something they likely do with most of their applicants? I’m pretty stressed about waiting out the admissions decisions so I may just be overthinking this..
  25. Hello there 🙂, I'm seeking to apply for Computer Science PhD next fall. Here are the list of questions that I have : Does it matter if I have research experience on a different topic than what I'm interested in? I am interested in ML/NLP but most of my experience was done on cloud computing I have written multiple research papers but most were from individual studies. Only one is currently being reviewed for publication, I am unsure whether if it will get published tbh. Does my non-published papers matter and is it a good idea to list them on my CV?
