  1. For F21 Masters, Khoury NEU is asking a deposit of 750 dollars to admits. The website said 100 dollars, admit letter asks for 750. Isn't 750 a bit too much? I don't have decisions from other universities yet. What should I do? Anybody thinking of paying them this amount?
  2. Hey y'all! I'll try to get straight to the point. I have a Master's in School Counseling but I want to pursue a degree in College and Student Affairs. As I look through programs, I'm realizing more and more that I may end up with two master degrees....so my question is: Should I apply to PhD or EDD programs straight out or should I try for a Master's program and work my way up? I currently work at a high school so I have some experience with colleges and I do leisure research. Obviously there is a lot more to Student Affairs than that, but is that base knowledge enough to at lea
  3. Creating a thread to discuss the range of masters programs for psych. Waiting to hear from: Columbia, NYU, American University, Wake Forest, Fordham. Anyone else just.... waiting...? I have been watching the PhD forums, and am thrilled to see everyone receiving interviews/admits to their programs, but I feel as though the masters programs are much, much slower. Post below any updates you have to your programs! Not sure how many prospective MA students there are out there
  4. Hi there! Anyone applying to masters programs only? I'm applying to terminal masters programs only and most deadlines are Jan 15, Feb 1, March 1, etc. The I/O Psych subreddit has been extremely helpful (if you haven't checked it out). Has anyone applied to or, inversely, decided NOT to apply to any of the following schools? Cal State SF Claremont Graduate School UT Arlington Texas A&M Cal State San Bernardino Appalachian State University of New Haven Florida International University University of Georgia Elmhurst Universi
  5. I am right now at that point in my career where I need to choose whether I need to take a thesis or project to end my Master's degree. I want to enter into the Industry side of Bioinformatics and I want to ask the recruiters what mainly they look in the candidates when they hire a bioinformatics student the technical knowledge or the research
  6. I'm considering applying to a MA program and from there to a PhD. Will probably focus on applied ethics in the areas of bioethics or AI. The writing sample is one of the most important parts of an application. I wanted to get some pointers on where I could find examples of successful writing samples for grad programs, so I can get a better sense of what my sample will need to be. I've looked at some journals for undergrad publications, which may go on to get repurposed as writing samples, but haven't found many writing samples specifically. Alternatively, you could just send me yours
  7. Hey guys! I am a Mechanical Engineering (major) and Math (minor) student who goes to UCF for undergrad. I am, however, out of state and from Georgia. My #1 choice of getting my masters is at Georgia Tech but I have UCF as a backup since I am in their BS-MS program. I also applied to UF to have the choice of three graduate schools. Thus, I have taken two graduate courses (applied mathematical methods for engineers and turbines for sustainable power). I also intern at one of the world's top gas turbine producers and have been here for 1 yr and 3 months. I'm also a Resident Assistant and have be
  8. Hey all! I didn't see many forums for the counseling and other related master's and I've been obsessively starting to check my email for interview invites so put yours below! School Name: Program: (MHC, MSW, MFT, etc.) Date invite received: Interview date: if you want
  9. Has anybody got an admit to the MS in Computer Science program at Columbia University for the Fall session despite submitting the application after the 2nd priority deadline(during the rolling period)? If yes, can you please mention some details about your profile? Also when did you apply and when did you receive the admit? I am planning to apply after 2nd priority deadline (somewhere around 1st week of March) but am really worried that my application might not be reviewed at all. Can someone please help?
  10. Hi everyone, I am looking for a Masters degree (or even a PhD) that is available through online distance learning. The field I am looking for is History... or a closely related field. There are some programs like the one at the University of Edinburgh but I am looking for something that is cheaper than that. Doesn't matter which country. If anyone knows, please help. Thanks in advance...
  11. Good morning! I want to start a discussion about the Penn GSE Fall 2020 application. Anyone applying for M.S.Ed.? Hi, I am glad you joined the conversation! 👋😃
  12. (Sorry for another chances thread, if anything I'm just curious what people think...) Hey everyone, I'm applying for a masters in CS and would love to know what people think are my chances at some of these places/come from any similar backgrounds. Residency: Cal Purpose/Reason for applying/Writing: I've been working as an ML engineer for a few years after graduation, but I really want to go back to get a masters in AI. I am aiming to focus on adversarial AI/robustness/correctness and secondarily programming by example/NLP. For professional (i really think formal learning in secur
  13. Hello everyone, I have a BSc in biochemistry and am looking for a MSc program in europe. I got a job in neuroscience research for a public institution right after graduation and it was then when I decided I wanted to go to industry rather than academia. I have several interests which are perhaps not 100% related to my bachelor's. Some of these are: Engineering (programming, AI, ML, nanotech, robotics) Design (creating things for practical use, creative process) Pharma (Drug pathways/delivery) Finance (project management) Biochem (neuro, lab work, cancer, ageing) I know it is imp
  14. Hi everyone! I really want to understand how different international affairs and public policy, as graduate courses, are. I am planning to pursue master's in either of the courses but haven't really been able to understand how different the career paths are for each. From what I've learned so far, it seems public policy focuses much more on quantitative skills like statistics, data and economics than IA. Moreover, some people have remarked that IA is too general or vague, especially in terms of profession. It would be really helpful if any of you could share your own experience.
  15. Hi! I need some advice please. So I have an offer from a Canadian University - Master's program and the course will be commencing in Jan 2021. And now that Canadian unversities have come up with a quarantine plan for internationa students it is possible to travel to Canada. I also have a PhD offer from an Australian University - not an offer exactly but my prof has agreed to accept me as a PhD candidate and I've also been working on related work. But the only issue is that with the current situation my Australian prof has told me that they are not quite sure when international students will be
  16. I'm a recent graduate in Data Science, emphasis in Applied Math from UC Berkeley, looking to apply for master's programs in Applied Math/Computational Math. GPA-3.02 GRE General- 157 Verbal, 166 Quantitative, 4.0 Writing GRE Subject Math-Cancelled due to COVID LORs- All three letters should be fairly strong: 1) Well-known professor I researched with in computational geometry, was heavily involved in several projects. 2) Lecturer in a sound computing course I took. I was quite interested in the course and showed up a lot to office hours. He seemed enthusiastic abo
  17. This is a cautionary note to the shiny-eyed prospective graduate student that dreams of actually learning something in this pile of steaming hot shit. If you have any self-respect and dignity, I entreat you, do not waste precious years of your productive life in this hell hole. Stay in your home country instead and learn from online courses, trust me, you'll learn more. You'll be lucky if you escape this farce of a department unscathed. The tenured professors sit on their fat asses and shit on the graduate students because that's how they can validate their miniscule ego. Some little shits hav

  19. Hey everyone, I've decided to apply to master's programs in statistics/data science this fall. I'm looking for some feedback on my current school list, as I'm not quite sure how to gauge my chances at some of the schools. Here's my profile: Undergrad Institution: UC Berkeley Major: Statistics GPA: 3.74 Type of Student: Domestic White Male GRE General Test: Q: 166 (87th percentile), V: 166 (97th), W: 5.0 (92nd) Programs Applying: Master's Statistics (maybe some data science programs as well) Research Experience: I had a negative research experience with a pro
  20. I had an underwhelming GPA in a difficult major from a top 10 but underrated public research university. I'm also in my late 30s - I've been thinking of grad/professional school for a long time, but I know it will be very challenging, and may not be worth it.For a while now, I'm been thinking of applying to the M.A. in Asian Studies at UC Berkeley and the M.A. in Asia Pacific Studies at University of San Francisco. I'd much prefer Asian American Studies, but very few schools offer an M.A. in that - the closest one seems to be UCLA, and I'd like to stay local and commute to school. There's an M
  21. Hiya, I am applying for microbiology/virology PhD programmes in the fall. Most applications require a minimum of 3 referees and a maximum of 5. I am on an integrated masters programme in the UK. I was wondering what the split between professors who have taught me (one to one teaching, so know me very well) and research supervisors? At the time of the application in Dec, I will have been about a month in into my masters year research project (start first week of Nov, Covid delayed everything). Should I ask my lab PI who is supervising my masters to write me a LoR despite the fact that he w
  22. I was a little disappointed with myself around a year ago when I had to start applying to grad schools. However, its not worth losing your head because you always have choices. Here is what the objective part of my application looked like- Application for the Masters program in Electrical Engineering 1) GPA: 6.79/10 (from a not very well known Indian university) 2) GRE: Q:170/170 V:158/170 AWA:3.5/6 3) IELTS: 8.5/9 4) Research experience: 3 months at a very well respected national lab, one year at an okayish lab (but really cool work), and another 3 months at another d
  23. I was wondering typically when ENMU sends out their decisions? I’m applying for Spring 2021! Anyone else?
  24. Hello all, I'm a current final year biotechnology student and will be graduating in '21. I plan to do masters in US. However, after doing some research & going through universities and their courses, i have begun to develop interest in courses which are completely different from my undergrad. For e.g, i like Masters in Business Analytics (MSBA), Masters in Management Information Systems(MIS). I'm kind of reluctant to apply for MIS, MSBA...because 1)i feel my chances of getting selected in good schools are close to NIL (because my undergrad
  25. Hi all, I'm revising my SoP for grad programs in Human-Computer Interaction and would be extremely grateful to get any feedback/criticism before submitting. Is there anyone in this field who can spare a few minutes going through my SoP and maybe suggesting a few things. More than happy to swap/review other statements- even if in different areas. Thanks in advance!
