  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. 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.
  3. Hi everyone, just want to ask as I am nervous, if I don’t get an interview invite for the PhD program at Rotman, am I rejected already? I have seen that some people here who have already received their invites last week and I just need to prepare myself mentally for the rejection. I applied for the PhD in strategic management. Thank you for your help.
  4. I got an email from BU saying that I have been placed on waitlist. What are the chances of getting an admit from the waitlist? BU is my top choice so I really hope to get in!
  5. Hello, everyone! Anyone waiting for UCI's emails for interviews on PhD Education? Hope I at least receive an email about anything in January...
  6. I’m looking at several top music theory PhD programs (Eastman, Yale, Columbia, Harvard, Northwestern...just to name a few) and was wondering how heavily GRE scores are weighed for applicants. My current scores are 160V, 150Q, and 4.5A, so my quant score is low, but I’ve heard that humanities programs generally only care about verbal and writing scores. I’ve considered retaking it to boost my quant score, but I’m not sure if it’s worth the time and money. Additionally, I have a 3.99 GPA at my undergrad institution, so I’m wondering if this might be able to offset my lower quant score. Any i
  7. Hi everyone! This is my first time looking for help here, so thank you in advance! I hope applications are going well for everyone who is busy with them at the moment My question is this: how important is a marine-specific degree when applying to marine focused PhD programs/jobs? And related: how common/difficult is it to switch from a marine-specific master's program to a terrestrial-focused PhD program/job? I am currently in the final year of an undergraduate program in ecology and nature conservation (EU university), and I am applying to master's degrees. I have been focusi
  8. Salut! I know it's pretty early, but I thought I would get the thread started for the next application cycle. I haven't narrowed down my list of schools, but I study eighteenth-century literature, culture, and political thought with emphasis on trade and commerce. Excited to see who else is applying and what you want to research! 😊
  9. Did anyone apply to CS@Max Planck Ph.D. Program? They ask LoRs after a first round of review. Is there anyone, who's LoRs have been submitted?
  10. I just wanted to start a form for black applicants and grad students which advice on different programs, where we are going, and climate!
  11. Hey everyone, I noticed there was no thread for this year's round of the SSHRC Doctoral Fellowship competition. How is everyone feeling as we wait for April?

  13. Did you recently apply to graduate school? You may be eligible for a brief online study related to creative thinking in graduate school students! The study is separate from the graduate application and it is entirely voluntary. Your responses to study questions have no bearing whatsoever on admission decisions, and they will not be linked to your application to any institution. The survey takes about 30 to 45 minutes to complete. If you choose to participate, you will receive a $15 Amazon gift card. Link to the survey: https://georgetown.az1.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_6WmmkLl5HapRUpv
  14. i am awarded TAship to fund my phd studies although i know TA roles and responsibilities and actually quite excited to carry out these tasks but on the other hand i am dreading a little that what if i can't manage my duties along with my PhD studies and start doubting myself.. so i would welcome any thoughts on this matter especially those who had experience in TAship. is it tough job or manageable?
  15. I am starting this thread to start the discussion of interviews in a Covid world. I have personally scoured the internet and numerous other forums looking for advice and what schools are saying in regards to their interview plans and this is what I have found so far. I received this notice from Stanford's Bioscience admissions when I submitted my application "During the week of January 11, 2021, the committees will start to contact applicants who have been selected for an interview. The selected applicants will be invited to interview via Zoom and participate in programming with faculty
  16. Hello, I am an international student applying for Stat and Biostat PhD programs. Today I got an email inviting me to an interview for the Biostat and Bioinfo PhD program at Duke and they are asking if I have some faculty I would like to invite as interviewers. How would you answer this, or, how DID you answer for this?
  17. I thought of opening a Biophysics thread as most universities now have separate Biophysics programs. Also, this would give us a separate space to discuss program specific issues
  18. Did anyone apply to MIT's Media Arts and Science PhD Program? When will we hear from the admissions committee regarding our application decision?
  19. Hello! I'm starting to look at Stat/Biostat PhD programs in 2022 since application for 2021 Fall will be closed soon. And I hope for advice as to what schools I should apply and what I can do to enhance my application while I’m in the industry now.

  20. Hi everyone, My partner is in line to get a Green Card, and I'll be eligible to apply for it once she gets it. I plan on applying for PhD programs in the US as an international applicant, but I wanted to know if it would be better for me to apply as a permanent resident instead. Based on the information available online, it looks like the latter is helpful in reducing the fees, but I guess that's more important for Undergraduate and Master's programs rather than than a PhD. Are there some clear advantages to applying for a PhD as a permanent resident instead of as an international applica
  21. Someone made a similar thread last year just to have a separate thread for neuroscience PhD applications for the 2018 cohort. Hopefully it'll help reduce a little bit of the interview/decisions anxiety if we're all in the same boat!
