  1. Hello everyone! I hope you all are well as you can be, considering everything 2020 has collectively thrown at us. I saw posts about computational biology/bioinformatics/systems biology programs for previous years but there is nothing posted for the 2021 cycle. I thought I'd be nice to get things started for this cycle - it was great read through previous posts for those interested in more computationally-inclined programs. It'd be nice to hear about everyone's thoughts on where they are applying to and to hear about news/updates/tips anyone has as well as we progress with application
  2. I saw that someone created the 2021 neuroscience admissions topic around this same time last year, so I figured it's never to early to start preparing for the 2022 cycle. Hope we can help each other throughout this process, and best of luck to everyone!
  3. Hello everyone! (This is an updated post from the previous year. I simply copy/pasted it because I did not find anything on computational biology programs for Fall2022) For citing purposes: https://forum.thegradcafe.com/topic/125918-2021-computational-biologybioinformaticssystems-biology-phd-admissions/ I saw posts about computational biology/bioinformatics/systems biology programs for previous years but there is nothing posted for the 2022 cycle.

  5. Hi all, I'm going to get some opinions/advice on how to approach the writing sample. I'm applying for PhD programs and the writing sample is optional, but I feel like it's a great chance to show my technical writing skills. They'll get a sense of my writing in general from personal history statements and statements of purpose, but I want to demonstrate my research writing ability. The problem is that I have few examples ready to go. I did an independent research project, but it wasn't released as a paper - only a presentation. I did a fair amount of writing for it (IRB applicati

  9. The Rady School of Management (UC San Diego) is seeking applicants to the fully funded PhD program in Management, Economics and Strategy concentration. Students will have the opportunity to work on exciting research in behavioral, health, and education economics field experiments, and work closely with faculty thanks to the small student : faculty ratio. This is a small but growing program that affords close mentoring form great faculty (including Uri Gneezy, Marta Serra, Sally Sadoff, and Anya Samek) and access to the resources of both the business school and the Economics department.
  10. Thought I'd start the thread for prospective doctoral students applying to start in Fall 2021. I'm starting it early so we can discuss and support each other given the added challenges of applying during a pandemic. I'm applying for my PhD in Social & Behavioral Health programs.
  11. Hi! So I am still in search of reputed master programmes that prepare strong candidates for future Ph.D. application in the U.S. I want to specialize in clinical child psychology/ developmental neuropsychology. Thoughts? (I am quite desperate and open to new ideas, I appreciate any advice!) Many thanks!
  12. I decided to start a thread for the PhD in Management for the 2022 applicants. The process can be lonely and it will be great to have a community sharing ideas as they progress in the application process.

  14. Hi everyone! So, I am hoping to attend graduate school in the Fall of 2022 and am currently in the process of getting my applications together. I have about two months left until I formally submit them and have been wondering what my chances are of getting admitted. Here are some of the basics of what I have/am working on, please let me know what you think, thank you!!! BA University: Graduated from the University of New Mexico in the Spring of 2020 Undergraduate Major/Degree: Majored in Sociology with a minor in Psychology Graduate GPA: 4.05 Program: PhD in Sociology
  15. I'm interested in applying to PhD programs relating to microbiology, immunology, and/or biomedical sciences due to my interest in host-pathogen interactions (more specifically from the infectious virus/bacteria perspective than the host's immune response). I've only just learned about pathobiology and how that degree and training is also related. I guess I'm not sure if I should stick with a Micro route or a pathobiology route? Does this even matter if the faculty overlap departments?
  16. Hi Everyone, After graduating with a BS in 2015, I've been working at a stealth medical diagnostic start up in the R&D department for over 2 years and I'm planning to apply to some phD programs fall 2019 focusing on microbiome/immuno/cancer . I have a question regarding how much my industry experience will help me in my applications. Some context: I have a pretty low uGPA: 3.13 from burning out during one quarter which resulted in me receiving a 2.97. I tried really hard to bring it back up... and I sort of did, but by the time I figured out how to study well, it was too late...

  19. Assuming the dissertation costs aren't in a funded fellowship/scientific research setting, how much should a PhD student expect to spend in writing their dissertation? For example, having to purchase specific articles on their subject that the library doesn't have access to, someone proofing/editing the dissertation, trips to specific institutions, compensating specialists/experts for their time etc. Are dissertations a hidden cost of doing a PhD or are they relatively affordable, not factoring in opportunity cost in years spent writing one?
  20. Hi all, I'm graduating from a MFA program in Architectural History next year (spring 2021) and have been seriously considering applying to PhD history programs, most likely for admission in fall 2021. I'm an older student (late 30s) and my career has been focused in architectural history up to this point. I love research and writing, and have done a significant amount of it in my career, but I've lost my interest in the built environment. I've always been an amateur social and cultural historian and want to focus on that in a professional capacity. It seems that going on for my PhD is a m
  21. I received a very positive email from my desired PI a few weeks ago, but I haven't heard anything since then. Does anyone have an official or unofficial offer?
  22. Hello! [I posted this on interdisciplinary studies but didn't get responses so figured I'd try here as well. (-:] I graduated college last year and am looking to apply to PhD programs in Women's/Gender/Feminist studies and enroll starting in Fall of 2022––it seems like a ways away, but this is the soonest I can go if I apply in the next admission cycle, for which apps are due in Dec./Jan. Here's my question: Which universities would people recommend I apply to? I've been surprised by how many major institutions do not offer PhDs in Women's/Gender/Feminist studies. Some of the pl

  24. Hi all, would really appreciate some input on both a profile evaluation and advice on whether to pursue a (second) master's, or a PhD. Motivation: I'm a lifelong learner - have always enjoyed my time in education and just learning - and deeply driven to pursuing careers that can shape policy or drive some sort of greater systemic change and public good. Whilst I don't really have an intention to stay in academia or go into teaching, I feel like there's still so much I could gain from having a more robust theoretical foundation in politics and theory, to be able to analyse and grasp polic
  25. I am just wondering what would be the correct approach to changing a Ph.D. advisor. A caveat here, my current Ph.D. advisor funds everything including my tuition and all. So, how do I talk to my current advisor, and how do I approach a prospective advisor? I'd love to hear some experiences of people who have actually done this. Thak you!
