  1. Hello all, I am applying for F1 visa from Mexico city as a third country national. I am studying in Mexico and staying in Mexico on a student visa. I was filling up the DS160 and I encountered confusion in a few questions. I would appreciate if you can share your opinion/ideas/experiences on them. 'Intended length of stay ' : I talked to a professor and he said that the average time for completion of the PHD program is 5 years. It's also the same in an image describing the timeline of phD, on the website of the univ. But the program duration given on my I-20 is 8 years. So what to write as the answer to the question "intended length of stay" : 5 years or 8 years : as mentioned in the I-20 ? It asks for home address and mailing address. Is 'home address' supposed to be the same as permanent address, as mentioned on my passport, or the temporary one here in Mexico city ? That's all. Cheers
  2. I have always returned to the school a few days before school began (5~10) so I never actually knew there was the earliest admission date. However, this time, I am booked for July 20th but I realized my EAD is the 22nd. This is a 2 day gap. I don't think I can change the ticket now, and have read that sometimes they are allowed in? I've been an F-1 student for more than nine years and have kept to all of the dates. Do you think they would let me slide for the 2 days? Would they let me just wait out the two days in the airport or would my I-20 status be cancelled?
  3. I got accepted into M.App.Sc. program of a Canadian University. The program’s lengths is “Minimum 3 terms, maximum 9 terms”. I thought all Canadian master’s programs usually result in 3-year PGWP (Post Graduation Work Permit) especially considering this statement: "Officers may issue 3-year work permits to individuals who complete a master’s degree in Canada when the DLI has confirmed in the written confirmation of program completion (e.g., an official letter or transcript) that the degree is 16 to 23 months in duration and does not include regularly scheduled breaks." (https://www.canada.ca/en/immigration-refugees-citizenship/corporate/publications-manuals/operational-bulletins-manuals/temporary-residents/study-permits/post-graduation-work-permit-program.html) However, the program has a minimal length of just one year (3 terms). It seems too shirt. Will it help if I study there more than 3 terms or it does not matter and I still can get a 3-year PGWP even after finishing it after 3 terms?
  4. Hello! I am currently starting my search regarding mid-level to top tier sociology programs with an emphasis in immigration. I am originally from the U.S. but am currently finishing an M.A. in sociology from a university in Mexico, and would prefer to begin a program that picks up where I left off (rather than having to redo all of the M.A. level class work). From what I can tell, European and other international programs are better suited for this, rather than most U.S. programs that tend to not differentiate between Masters students and undergrad applicants. I would ideally love to base my research project out of Oaxaca, Mexico, although I´m open to spending the first year abroad to meet requirements. Any suggestions? I am currently looking into Oxford´s new part-time sociology program. I would love to hear any tips/ideas for narrowing down my search. Thanks!
  5. Hello People of GradCafe, I need some help! I just received my Master's in Urban Planning and Policy from the University of Illinois, Chicago this May. During my Undergrad I studied Economics and the Sociology of Religion. I am interested in eventually applying for PhD programs but am unsure if I should be applying for Sociology PhD's or one in Geography (Human). The topics I am interested in focusing on are immigration, migration, and diaspora policies and how migrants/refugees fit into western societal spaces. Additionally I am very interested in how the role of the city plays into these trends as well. I can make arguments for both disciplines-on the one hand Geography could be better because it is more closely aligned with my Master's in Urban Planning in that it deals with human interaction with the environment (both built or otherwise), and it also would allow me to include some sociological trends into the study as well, such as demography. On the other hand, sociology has more longly been associated with immigration and transnational studies and is more aligned with population dtudies and demography research which ended up being my favorite aspect of my Urban Planning degree. I never thought I would be having this dilemma but I am. If someone could address what the differences are between these potential two programs in terms of research methodologies etc., as well as which you think would be better for someone with my research interests that would be amazing. I am very aware that I may be rambling here so if you need clarification on anything or have further questions to help me out please do not hesitate! Thanks so much, Sean

  7. Hi so I'm a new poster, just finished my undergraduate degree in sociology. I'm looking for advice on what programs to apply to, specifically in regards to sociology programs with a focus on immigration/migration. Some background on me is I had a decent GPA (3.5), I haven't taken the GRE yet, I did my undergrad in Canada so I'm looking at schools both in Canada and the U.S., I don't have any faculty members in mind yet, still have to research that over the summer. But the schools I'm looking at now are (in no particular order)... UC-Irvine (and maybe Davis) University of Toronto University of British Columbia UM-Ann Arbor UMinnestoa-Twin Cities Penn State UPenn and Princeton (big reach schools) If anybody has experience/advice on applying to these programs, or knowledge of the immigration sociology faculty members let me know please. Or if anybody has advice on other schools I should look at (especially schools that may not be as well known but maybe are safer bets on getting in) let me know please. Also just general advice on things I should highlight in a grad school application would be greatly appreciated.
  8. Hi all, I'm from India and have a couple of questions regarding my passport. First, is it a problem if my passport signature and current signature (which I would use for visa, immigration, etc.) are very different? When I initially got my passport about 7 years ago, my signature was very different from my present signature. So, for any matters regarding getting my visa done, immigration, opening a bank account in the US, etc., the signature I would use would not match with the signature in my passport. Is this going to be a problem and do people check the passport signature? Should I update the signature in my passport? Second, my passport will expire in 2020. Since I will be a PhD candidate, my duration of stay will be a minimum of 5 years, and perhaps 6. Hence, I'll be staying in the US till about 2021, i.e. 1 year beyond my passport expiration date. Will this be a problem at the time of getting my visa this year? Thanks in advance.
  9. So, given the tremendous lack of Latin@ academics around the country, I am curious if anybody other than me is Latin@, applying to sociology grad programs, and lurking around these forums with frequency. I really hope I'm not the only one, and it'd be a pleasant surprise if, in fact, I am not. In the off chance that I'm not, then to which programs did you apply and what is it that you want to study? *tossing bottle into ocean.... *bottle tossed... *waiting for return of bottle...
  10. I've seen several posts on Canadians attending graduate programs in the U.S., but none for the reverse. I'm considering applying to a few PhD programs (in political science) located north of the border, but I'm wary of going through the immigration process, getting a visa, and jumping through the bureaucratic hoops. I'm from the Upper Midwest, and I speak both English and French, so Canada wouldn't be much of a culture shock to me (certainly much less than the South/West Coast/etc. Has anyone here attended, or is anyone here currently attending grad school in Canada? I guess my main questions are: 1) Do Canadian Ph.D. programs prefer to admit local students over U.S. students? 2) As an American with a PhD from a Canadian institution, how difficult is it to get an academic job at a university in Canada? Has anyone here done this?
