  1. Can anyone share their experiences, both positive and negative, working with admissions consultants for Harvard Kennedy's MPP program? Any experience with Stratus, the MBA Exchange, Fortuna, Personal MBA Coach, Stacy Blackman, or The Art of Applying?
  2. Hi all, I saw that previous years, folks created forums for that year's application cycle and didn't see one for this year. I was wondering if anyone had heard anything back already or had an interview? Based on last years post, it looks like interviews were had around this time, so I wanted to know if anyone else had theirs? It would really help in letting me become depressed earlier so as to get on with my life sooner. Thanks!

  4. Hello, I wanted to know when the decisions by HGSE would be out!
  5. I have been admitted to the statistics departments at both Harvard and Berkeley. I applied to 24 schools, so I've also been accepted to virtually all of the top 20 stats programs, excluding Stanford. My academic interests are pretty broad, but I'd like my research to be more theoretical and in the realm of probability or machine learning/deep learning, if possible. I'm also not sure if I will try to go into academia or into a research team at Google, Microsoft, Facebook, etc. I am mainly considering these two because Berkeley is so good at ML, but Harvar
  6. Hi guys, Has anyone received any news about interview or admission for PhD at harvard for immunology or virology program? If I haven't received any rejection yet, does it mean that I still have any chances? thank you

  8. Can someone please shed some light on what the actual admission requirements are for Harvard’s Clinical Psychology Doctoral program? I’ve searched the Harvard website for admissions requirements and found nothing. Some of their other Doctoral programs offer open house’s, but I didn’t see any open house dates for clinical psychology either. Someone please help me.
  9. Hello all, I'm new here so my apologies if this post doesn't belong in this thread. I applied to Harvard's SM program in global health and population. I spoke to a current professor from the department who told me the program places a heavier emphasis on quantitative skills, and the department's webpage states that: "The admissions committee looks for candidates with strong quantitative skills, as demonstrated by good performance in college-level calculus and statistics." As part of the entry requirements for this particular program, they ask for both a calculus and a statistics cour
  10. I am admitted to both schools (Master of Science).
  11. Hi everyone! Really sorry about this post. I am new here on Grad Cafe and working on my applications to graduate school (21 Fall) right now, and I am really nervous. It would be really helpful if you guys could take a look and provide me some feedback on my profile. (This is similar to What are my chances post....I found some links in the pinned post not validated anymore...Again I apologize for this....) I am currently a senior in UIUC with a crappy GPA of 3.4/4.0 (many Bs, some As, one C) majoring in Astronomy + Physics minoring Math. Here are some details about my profile:
  12. Hi All, I hope there is someone out there who can shed some light on my question. I am equally interested in the Business Economics and Business Administration (Strategy) PhD programs at Harvard University. When going over to each program's page on Harvard's website, I notice that the number of students in the Business Economics is significantly higher than in the Strategy program. Can anyone confirm if this means I would have a higher chance to be admitted in the Business Economics program? Thank you in advance for your info.
  13. I heard that Stanford Biosciences is more competitive (acceptance rate wise) than its peer institutions, e.g. MIT Biology, Harvard Integrated Life Sciences (HILS), UCSF, GSK. Why so?
  14. This year HGSE has a new section for international students to demonstrate English proficiency. It is called Video Response. Optional but strongly recommended for anyone who does not meet their TOEFL requirements (26 minimum in each section). My TOEFL total score is above 104 but my speaking session is less than 26. I'm debating between retaking TOEFL and doing this video response. I don't like talking to a machine to be honest. I heard there were interviews last year but admission office says they are using this video response instead for this year's application. Has anyone done it?
  15. For all those waiting it out
  16. Hey everyone - I realize it's only April, but I figured I'd get started on the HKS thread for 2019 matriculation. A little about me: I'm a 2010 grad from a competitive small liberal arts college, 2012 masters in city planning from an ivy (both with honors), worked in public finance consulting for three years, now working as a civil servant in a policy office in transportation. I'm active in a few LGBT causes, and have a fellowship with a large, international professional organization that focuses on urban revitalization. I'm taking the GRE in August. I'm attracted to HKS and other MPP pr
  17. Hello everyone, I hope corona do not find you :) . I want to know the funding program for international student accepted into neuroscience PhD at Harvard. Based on the website, the PhD student receive scholarship but still I donot understand the plan for this. I sent an e-mail to the funding officer but no response. As I understand from the website, it is a tiered tuition structure that reduces tuition over time as students progress through their degree programs. Another plan is the fully funded option. Which plan is available for international students? Best regards
  18. Hi all, I just received an offer from HKS MPP program, with no scholarship offered. I am currently debating whether I should take the offer or go for the MA program at SAIS in DC, which provides me a $40k scholarship per year. What are your thoughts? In the long run I am interested in development economics and international affairs. I may do a PhD after graduation as well, but nothing is set yet. I am really keen on to take the MPP offer but 40k per year is no joke.... My family is ok to support the MPP tuition but I feel bad letting them do this. Thanks.
  19. Hi all, I got admitted into PhD programs in Geology/Earth & Planetary Science at Caltech, Harvard, Cornell, and Oxford. I am an international student (from Colombia) with a Fulbright scholarship and deciding where to go has been very difficult for me so far. - Caltech: Pros: Awesome advisors, program structure, approach to research, research areas Cons: Very few Latin American students at Caltech, it takes 5 years to complete the program - Harvard: Pros: Excellent university reputation, research area Cons: I have been told my PI is not very good with gra
  20. Hello, HGSE hopefuls! I started the thread for HGSE last year but ended up not applying due to extremely low GRE scores. I decided to take another year to work, and get more experience in the education sector. So, here are are my stats. Let me know what you think. Be brutal!Applying for M.A I am an international applicant. Program: PSP (practice strand)GRE Score: V 155, Q 140, AWA: 4.0 (will be retaking it)GPA: 3.05 (2 health related withdrawals recommended by the university and some very low grades)Work Experience: multiple internship & volunteer experiences in youth development thr
  21. Happy Wednesday! I wonder if any of you are also waiting for a notice from Harvard about whether you'll get a chance to interview for the Fall 2020 Ed.L.D. cohort! And if anyone has intel about when invitations are likely to come out, I would love to hear it! Thanks and good luck!
  22. I am admitted to the master of data science program at Harvard and MIIS at CMU. I am trying to decide between the two programs. Harvard's brand name is really attractive, but I don't know if a master is considered an alumnus. And also CMU is number 1 in CS field. I went to Umich for undergraduate and I majored in computer science. My current career goal is to become an SDE or data scientist after graduating from grad school. But I didn't completely rule out the possibility of getting a Ph.D. I would really appreciate any advice!
  23. Hey everyone! Wanted to see if anyone has heard from HGSE on the Ed.M program? They said decisions come out March 2020, but I'm curious if they will give decisions any earlier. I have 2 acceptances from other schools that are requiring a deposit by end of Feb. Would love to avoid paying a deposit if there's a chance I get into HGSE... but obviously it's very competitive! Has anyone asked for an admissions decision early with a similar circumstance? Would love any advice on the topic!
  24. Hi all, I'm applying to PhD programs for entrance Fall 2020. I'm in the process of narrowing down which programs best suit my research interests, but even after viewing faculty research profiles and general descriptions, I'm having trouble parsing the finer details of each choice from this readily available info, such as, what's it like to be a student there? How strong is their research in the areas I'm interested in? Etc. My research goal has been the same for the past 20 years: to find a cure for HIV infection... or a vaccine... eventually, both. I had the idea as an undergr
