  1. 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..
  2. HI there! I wanted to start this forum regarding Museum Studies graduate program applicants for fall 2020! I searched and couldn't find ANY forums about museum studies/museology programs or topics. Why not start here? What schools and programs did you apply for? What are some of your top schools? Has anyone heard back from the schools they were hoping for? I personally applied to the Museum and Field Studies at UC-Boulder, and then I applied to the Public History w/ Museum Specialization at Colorado State.
  3. Hey all, I just wanted to start a thread for any fellow MArch applicants waiting on decisions. I applied to UBC, Carleton and UofT for the three year program what about you guys? I know its still early for Canadian schools but anyone hear back yet?
  4. Hello,, I would like to ask you a question. I have applied to postgraduate programs for 2020: U of Warwick - International Politics and East Asia- Waiting U of Warwick- US Foreign Policy- Waiting U of Exeter- International Relations- Offer U of Essex- International Relations- Offer SOAS- Asian Politics- Waiting Leiden University- International Relations and Diplomacy- Waiting U of Bristols- International Relations- Waiting U of Edinburgh- International Relations- Waiting Which school do you recommend me from the above? As you can see I am interested in US Politics, Asian Politics, and International Relations. I am planning for PhD once I finish this Masters program. So far I got offers from Exeter and Essex. Other admission teams told me that the results will be in two weeks. While I wait for the other schools, I'd like to ask which school should I pick between Exeter and Essex. I know Exeter is quite prestigious school in the UK.. (UK top #10) However, I have also heard that regardless of low name-value and ranks, Essex is really strong in US politics. I'm an international student and I have not visited above schools yet. I've researched through google and other websites. I have asked some of the British people and they all recommended me to go to Exeter. I'd like to ask here.. Have any of you heard of Essex? Is it really good in politics? Which school would be better for future career and PhD?
  5. Hello all looking for fellow people who are applying for musicology graduate programs. Just wondering how everyone's interviews and acceptances or going. The last thread I found on this subject was a few years ago. I've applied to 6 programs and have received 2 interviews. Waiting for the rest. If you would like to talk about programs or have advise, I would love to hear it!
  6. Has anyone heard back from NYU Steinhardt? Applied for Early Action, the result is supposedly coming out in early Feb. I called the admissions last week, and was told that the result could come out on any day. However, it looks like there was 1 person admitted as posted on the result page... so I was wondering if anyone knows about it. Any info welcomed :) Thanks!
  7. 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
  8. Did anyone on here get invited to Texas Woman's University interview day for the M.A. in counseling psychology? Would love to meet some people before the actual day!
  9. Lots of threads for MFT PhD programs but I couldn't find one for Master's programs! Where did you apply? Where have you heard back from? I applied to SDSU, Jefferson, U of Oregon, and Appalachian State. As of yesterday have been invited to interview at U of Oregon (2/13) and Appalachian State (2/21).
  10. So I see that a lot of admission decisions for SM Mechanical Engineering MIT have come out. Is there a second wave or is everyone who hasn't received a decision rejected?
  11. To all masters applicants at Cambridge, when can one expect decisions for Cambridge Trust scholarships after acceptance? How is the applicant informed? Has anyone received a decision in this cycle? Where I am right now: received acceptance for MPhil in Faculty of Education after interview in late January. I am from India and applied to all Cambridge Trust scholarships I am eligible for, EXCEPT Gates-Cambridge. If there is someone from similar background and/or applying to Education, I'd really appreciate your help.
  12. 3rd Decision - 2nd admit 1st - NYU MS in Biotechnology and Entrepreneurship - Accepted 2nd - University of Wisconsin Madison -Rejected 3rd - Johns Hopkins University - MS in Biotechnology - Accepted as a Conditional Student. Should I wait for decisions from Columbia(MA Biotechnology), UMich Ann Arbor ( MS in Human Genetics) and UPenn( Masters in Biotechnology) or just go for JHU? JHU MS in Biotechnology is a course under AAP. I've heard mixed reviews regarding these courses, since they are part time. As an International student , will It be good for me to go for something like this?
  13. I'm a student of Electrical Engineering at Jadavpur University, India. My profile being as follows, please indicate if my research experience would outweigh my pretty average GPA : GRE: 323(160v+163q) TOEFL iBT: 107 CGPA: 8.2 /10 Research Experience: 4 Separate research projects : 1 in condensed matter physics, 2 in Optics , and 1 in High Voltage EM computation. Publications: 1 Publication in Frontiers in Physics ( impact 1.89) on condensed matter physics ( jointly first-authored ),1 pending Publication in SPIE photonics ( submitted for review ) Schools I am considering: I am primarily interested in gaining a good understanding of Electronics and Photonics with Optics. Hence both ECE courses in some univs and Exclusively Photonics masters courses match : European Masters in Photonics at UGent + VUB Europhotonics Masters degree programme MSc at Imperial College London Masters at UCL EE at UMICH ECE MS at UIUC ECE at Georgia Tech ECE at UCSD EE at UCLA Optics master at Univ of Rochester MS in Optics at Univ. of Arizona MS programme, CREOL, UCF Abbe School of Photonics, Jena, MSc MSc in photonics in Univ of Jena Karlsruhe Institute of Technology, MSc Masters of Light science and Tech, Univ Bordeaux. Mc Gill University MS EE As you can see I seemingly have a large number of choices of varying difficulties. Please help me cut down the list by difficulty. Any Insight on Good courses in ECE that suit my profile and I might have missed would help too. Thanks.
  14. I have completed BTech Biotechnology from Anna University, Chennai India in 2014 with a cgpa of 8.86, Department first, university rank holder. Have an above average academic record and IELTS score 8. Worked as an IT professional for five years. Now married, looking for masters in canada in Health Informatics or Bioinformatics. From the official websites of the top 20 universities of Canada, I can see I meet the basic eligibility criteria. But, recently one of the consultants I spoke with, told me that I have higher chances of being rejected either in the application phase or in the Visa phase because I am trying to apply for a life science course but have a good work experience in IT. Is it true? If yes, what other courses should I be looking for? I can share more information if required.
  15. Hi I have a master's degree in computer science from a while ago. Been working for the past decade or so. I am interested in studying psychology out of interest and to switch careers. I believe that I can do master's degree to get some subject matter foundation before applying for PhD (I already have the basic prerequisites for master's covered such as introduction to psychology, intro stats). I'm looking for universities in New York City area that have a master's program which can be a stepping stone to get into a good University for PhD later. I am concerned that NYU is hard to get in given my background (no research or psych related experience). How about teacher's college? Does it have good faculty/research/reputation? Also, considering master's in CUNY but I am not sure how much of a stepping stone it is in terms of quality of education and research experience and reputation when it comes to admission for PhD in a good Uni later on. Any advice/direction is much appreciated!
  16. Has anyone applied for Stony Brook's Fall 2020 MAT program? Is it rolling admissions?
  17. Hi! So last February of 2019 I was waitlisted to Marymount University's forensic and legal psychology master's program! I was told I was in the top third out of 40-50 people. I have been told by one person that had applied to this program that the year previous to that she was waitlisted and that for 2019 she got admitted. Do you think the chances would be that good for me as well? I am definitely re applying this year and I just hope the same outcome goes for me, where I was waitlisted last year and then admitted this year. For this particular program, they say they get around 200 applicants and accept about 95 students. Thoughts? Thank you guys!
  18. Hello all! I hope everyone has had a good application season for those who applied this year. I'll be applying for MPP programs this fall (to enroll in 2021). I'm mostly planning to apply to California programs (pretty much all of them - all the UCs plus USC and a few others). I studied Chemical Engineering, so I have a rigorous quantitative background, but I haven't taken any economics (other than a non-AP high school class). Is it worth the tuition to take an online microeconomics class before applying? It's one of the only things I've noticed is listed as a prereq, but most schools don't actually say it's *required* for admission. In case it's at all relevant (probably it isn't) I do have some familiarity with Econ through work experience, as I work with lots of economists. I also have a high quant GRE score. I'm very grateful in advance for any thoughts you all have! Thanks!
  19. Hi All! So I am a online master's student at Arizona State University for my MS in psychology. I would love to move on to get my phD or psyD, however, I have ZERO research experience under my belt. I know that in order to even be considered for such a program, I need to obtain research experience for a year or two. The issue I have at hand is I also work full-time. I work a solid 8-5, M-F. The good news is that there's a university right across the street from my job, I'm just wary of any professors willing to take on a volunteer master student from another university with such limited availability. Also quitting my job is not a choice. I have way too many expenses I pay for living in San Diego, California. If anyone has any tips or suggestions and has gone through a similar situation as myself, please let me know. Thanks!
  20. Hello, As Public Health applications will be opening soon (depending on when you're applying to of course) and being the thread for last year was already released months before this, I jumped the gun and thought a thread for us to discuss, share our thoughts, feelings, fears, and the trials and tribulations of Public Health applications would be helpful. I also find it helpful to know who's applying where I'm excited to start this journey and I'm hoping we all see acceptance letters/emails in under a year! Schools/programs I plan to apply to: UBC MPH UBC MSc in PPH (already have my eye on a supervisor though) SFU MPH U of Manitoba MScPH
  21. Hello Everyone, I didn't find a form for CSULB School counseling so i decided to start one. For those who have applied to the program and feel comfortable sharing your stats, please do! Good luck everyone! GPA: 3.15 Internships/Extra Curricular activities: BBBS Org: Mentor | Fullerton College: Higher Education advocate | Orange County Community Housing Corporation: Academic Advisor | Human Services Student Association: Membership Chair I don't have the best GPA and know how competitive it is to get into the program at Cal State Long Beach but i am hoping that my internship and SOP helps me land an interview. Throughout my time in college, i have worked 40+ hrs a week, gone to school FT, and have managed to take on a couple internships. Currently, my application has been sent to the department and is under review. Once again, GOOOOOOOD LUCK!
  22. I’m applying for a masters degree at UConn in mechanical engineering (not a top tier school). I have a 3.6 GPA and a B.S. degree from Rutgers and I’ve had a couple internships at well known companies and I have a full time job at Pratt & Whitney. I do however have 3 Ws on my transcript (non major related dropped for health and financial reasons) and I have 2 C+‘s and 2 C’s. However half these are in non major courses. Will these hurt my chances assuming my GRE is solid and letters of rec are as well?
  23. I just got admitted to Saarland University for their Masters in Data Science and Artificial Intelligence for the summer semester 2020, which shares some of its courses with CS. Has anybody else received an answer? Will you accept the offer? Have you applied to other schools? I am deciding on whether to start this summer semester or defer to winter and wait for answers of the other universities I applied to, since they mostly start in October.
  24. Hi, I'm applying for a Masters in International Relations at The Graduate Institute Geneva (IHEID) 2020-2022 and thought it would be worth starting a thread for others in the middle of the application process, as well. Any words of advice/encouragement/inspiration would be so welcome! Kayla
  25. Hi just wondering if anyone wants to give a generalized honest opinion, am I wasting my money applying to PhD programs in Media Studies when I only have my BA? I know you need to know a lot more about me and to read my writing to actually answer that with full confidence but I'm wondering if there is sort of a general rule that almost all PhD admits already have their Masters or have spent significant time working in the field. I'm sure a masters helps one's chances but is someone getting into media studies (rtf/cultural studies type) PhD programs without it an exception or just a slight minority? My professors have made it clear that it would be better were I accepted into PhD programs for money reasons, but even the ones who most intimately know my work haven't given a clear indication of if that's possible. Reading the websites of programs I'm interested many current students seem to have acquired their Masters from other schools or in other disciplines so I feel my chances dwindling. I have good numbers and some good writing but I've never published or officially presented.
