  1. I just received my acceptance letter to Buff state and was wondering if anyone else here will be attending? I don’t see much on here about them and can’t find a Facebook group.

    CSULB MSW fall 2018

    Hey I wanted to start a thread to see if anyone was working on their applications yet to compare stats and acceptance/ rejection timelines. I applied to only CSULB last year, on the application deadline and wasn't accepted so this year I'm trying to get things in early. Experience: 2 years working in an FSP adult/ TAY program, Peace Corps, 2 years intake/ brand management for addiction recovery centers, 3 years senior adult caregiver, 2 years tutor/ youth mentor and I'm also currently running a DBT skills group. Overall GPA is a 3.2, upper division is 3.5

    Portland State University

    I am still waiting to hear back from Portland State University for the fall of 2018. I applied for Health Management and Policy. I have waited roughly a month or so, I sent an email and I received an email stating I would hear by April 15th. Well, UMASS Amherst told me I have until April 15th to accept or decline their acceptance. Portland is my top school, the waiting is making me extremely tired.When should I send another email?Or should I just wait it out? Has anyone heard back from Portland? Has anyone been accepted into UMASS for their MPH?
  4. I got accepted at California University of Pennsylvania on April 11th and was wondering if there was a Facebook group link for the fall 2018 cohort?
  5. Heya, folks. I've been lurking for a couple weeks, but I couldn't seem to find a 2018 acceptance/rejection thread specifically for Philosophy M.A. applicants, so I figured I'd start one myself. I applied to four programs: NIU, UW-Milwaukee, Virginia Tech, and Western Michigan. I was admitted to NIU early this month--2/7, I want to say?--but am still awaiting news on funding. I've not yet heard back from any of my other three programs, but, of course, the deadlines for those applications have only recently passed, so I imagine I'll be waiting some time yet... Any others admitted to NIU?

    Fresno State

    Has anyone heard from Fresno State? I'm still waiting to know if I have been accepted or not.
  7. Hey guys, it's my first time here and I have a lot of questions in my head. So pardon me if this is going to be exhaustive, but I could do with any guidance/support I can get on here. EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT ME: I'm a 26 year old, Australian National (well, third culture kid) that has grown up across three countries. As a disciple of Psychology this upbringing has allowed me to interact/develop a diverse clientele. I have the following qualifications/ GPA as accredited by the World Education Service ( United States equivalence): - Bachelors in Psychology ( Honours), India : 3.21 - Masters of Science in Psychology ( with Clinical Specialisation), India : 3.50 - Masters of Professional Psychology, Australia : 3.80 ( Provisionally licensed therapist as per the Australian guidelines). I have two unpublished academic dissertations : (1) The Phenomenon of Suicidal Ideation in Individuals Who Have Attempted Suicide Before (2) A Study on the Risk Factors Among Individuals Exposed to Childhood Bullying and Suicidal Ideation. I am currently in the process of formatting and publishing my second dissertation. My GRE score is 302 ( Verbal - 153 , Quant - 149, AWA - 3.5) on second attempt. I attempted the GRE a second time with a month's difference, after I had a horrible anxiety attack because I had interviews that suddenly rocked up on the same day as my GRE. On my first attempt I scored horribly but got a 5 on AWA. I have over a year's worth of clinical work experience and multiple short term internship experiences. Given my performance academically and my diverse experience, I am really hoping to apply for APA accredited PsyD ( predominantly) programs offered by first tier universities in USA. I am thinking: Berkley, Rutger's, Baylor's, Stanford consortium program, etc. I will also be applying to regional and second tier universities with good rankings to maximise intake & minimise disappointments balance the process out. I am taking the year off to apply I am absolutely desperate to make it into a program by 2019. I have 4 questions (one very big confusing question broken into 4 confusing parts ). 1) I understand that, GRE is not everything and it depends on the holistic picture one presents through their applications. But having seen the outcome and admissions data across the fancy-schmancy universities, the GRE scores normally average to about 318 ( minimum). Should I retake the GRE a third time after putting in 3-4 months of diligent effort? 2) Orrr should I just focus on smashing my SoP's , LOR's and getting published ? 3) What are my chances of being able to make it into a well ranked university ? 4) I can do a decent job with writing, sometimes I get carried away or mess up my tenses. Can I get enough help here with editting my SoP or should I sign up for alternative services ? 5) What else should I be focussing on ? Thank you for taking the time out to go through this. I'd love to hear what you guys think

  9. Hey guys, I recently applied to the advanced standing social work program at UIC for the fall of 2018. I’m pretty worried about my chances of getting in and I can’t find much information about other worried people’s admission results. I’m graduating this May from SIUC with my bachelors in social work. I went to a community college for my first 2 years. I have a cum. GPA of 3.0 but I show a lot of improvement in my grades. I went from a semester gpa of 2.0 at community college to a 3.6 at SIU. I’m in a sorority and I have a lot of different volunteer experiences and hours. I submitted 3 LORs. I talked to someone from admissions before I submitted my application and expressed my concern about my chances of getting in because of my GPA. She said that there are around 1,000 applicants and she said they accept somewhere around 200 for the regular 2 year program but since I will have my BSW and id do the advanced standing program, I have a much higher chance of getting in because of the fewer number of applicants with BSWs. Can anyone share their experience of getting accepted or denied into this program?

    SLP in waiting

    Has anyone heard/know when we should hear from University of Wisconsin-Whitewater, University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire, Midwestern AZ and Midwestern IL? Thank you and good luck to everyone!
  11. A school that I like a lot, but that is not my top choice, is pressuring me to accept by April 1. However, I am still waiting to hear back from my top choice, and am currently waitlisted at my #2...if accepted at either of these schools, I would almost definitely immediately say yes (pending some financial considerations)...is it ethical to say yes to #3, knowing full well that I may change my mind very soon? I like all three schools very much, they all have strong programs in my field, and if I only get into #3, I will certainly go there.
  12. Is anyone attending USF in the fall? Looking to connect with other AuD students!
  13. Hi all! I got waitlisted at my top choice of University of Washington's Architecture Design Computing program. I am currently awaiting the next news but I am really trying to be hopeful but I am just stressed. Anyone have any advice (or maybe you are turning down your acceptance giving me a spot, I know thats a little cruel but I would just like to know).

    UIC MHA Grad Program

    Hi there, Have any UIC MHA applicants received notice of acceptance or denial? Also curious to hear plans for tuition. i.e. assistantship, grants, scholarships, etc. Thanks for you time.
  15. Will having any CEU's, CECH's, CHES's, NBCC's etc. help me get into grad school? I'm talking about accredited programs/websites, not MOOC's. I'm willing to pay if it'll help. Also do I attach the certification of completion to my resume (each certification is a page long), and how do I mention it on my resume if I have any completed so far? I'm interested in going for physical therapy school, and want to get some courses on mental health and general health, will this help me at all? Most courses aren't free. I'm still in undergrad, graduating next year, might apply for the next cycle in a few months.

    MPH Canada Cycle Fall 2017

    Let's share our experience for the Fall 2017 cycle!
  17. Congrats to everybody who received offers! I've narrowed down my choices to two programs. If anybody wants to weigh in, please feel free! Program A) Great community, really supportive faculty and students. Incredibly flexible program structure, so students can really tailor their training to fit their needs. However, I'm scared that I won't find a home lab, which may be a silly fear since there's ~190 faculty members I can choose from. Loved my visit there, but just didn't find a lot of labs that really excited me. Program B) Also seems like a great program structure, with flexibility for classes. Includes class that all 1st years take together that expand all disciplines within the program, which seems to level the playing field and bring each cohort together. Incredible PI's and labs, with projects that REALLY excite me. I'm totally in awe of some of the PIs there. The problem is, I'm really intimidated by the other interviewees and the PI's who I really look up to, and am worried I'll disappoint them. Because of this, I was too nervous and insecure to really relax and enjoy my recruitment event. Program B is also in a much more expensive place to live, but money isn't really weighing heavily in my decision. Essentially, I'm torn between a program I really liked, but didn't have labs that really excite me, and another program that does have labs which I think are incredible, but am scared of.

    Accepted, but funding isn't livable

    One of the phd programs I've been accepted to is offering me a TA stipend that's well below $15,000 a year, and that's before fees (which sound like they will be in the neighborhood of $1500 or so). The TAship would be normal, involving like 20 hrs a week. The letter didn't mention anything about additional opportunities for financial aid. Federal minimum wage (assuming full time work) is about $15,000 a year, and the school is in a high cost of living area. There's no way anybody could live on this stipend alone - they would have to get a part time job, take out loans, or apply for a heck of a lot of scholarships or grants (and hope that you manage to get them every year!). A part time job might not be so bad if you didn't have to spend 20 hrs a week on teaching assistant stuff in addition to classes, but I feel like there's no way anyone could put in the research, work, and sheer energy required to essentially work a full time job (I feel like a TAship + a part time job on the side would amount to that much), take classes, and churn out a dissertation all at the same time. Normally, I think of funding offers as being, on average, somewhere around $23,000 (plus or minus like a couple thousand). But I've heard of funding offers getting as low as like, 15-16,000 for cash-strapped departments (I think typically these schools are lower ranked, too), and as high as the lower to mid thirty thousands. The weirdest thing is, this school is a top 20 PGR program, so you'd think they'd be able to pay their students enough to live on, or at least pay them at or above annual federal minimum wage. Does anyone else think this is weird, or gotten offers like this themselves?

    Are you accepting?

    I am wait-listed at my top choice (ivy league) and I'm wondering where everyone has been accepted, what your subfields are, and which offer you may accept. Thanks!
  20. I was reading about George Mason and their economics program. I find interesting the Austrian approach, classical liberalism and public choice as their strength. Anyway, how hard is it to get an admission? I mean, from what I read, they have a pretty high acceptance rate (88%) and a low enrollment (66%). Is it true? Anyhow, I am applying to it. I am an industrial engineer from Brazil and I made a research about institutions and Elinor Ostrom here. My SoP was telling about that and some other minor projects regarding that subject. What are my odds? My GRE: Verbal - 158 Quantitative - 165 AW - 3.5 TOEFL - 105 Thanks!
  21. Hi everyone! I recently got accepted to a few SLP programs and one of them is Rocky Mountain University of Health Professionals. It's a candidate program in Provo, Utah with a medical emphasis. I got a good impression from the faculty but it's one of the more expensive programs in the country. Has anybody heard about their SLP program or been accepted?
  22. I heard back yesterday from the first school I interviewed at in early Feb, saying I had an acceptance offer and to respond by Feb 26. However, I know for a fact that the other 2 schools I interviewed at send out offers in early March. I'm really looking to get into these other 2 schools but don't want to lose the first acceptance offer if I get rejected by both. Should I email the director of the first school to ask for an extension, or ask the other two schools for an earlier notification? (I'm leaning towards the former, since it won't hurt me as much). Also, all these programs are tiny so all the directors know each other well. Any advice would be greatly appreciated!
  23. I got accepted to one of my top schools. It is my first acceptance out of 8 (which I haven't heard from yet). I have one more really good school I would like to hear back before making the final decision on this school, though, but if that falls through I will definitely accept at the first school despite the others. It really has everything I'm looking for and I can't imagine going anywhere else. The school I'm waiting for is also a top, but also a very reputable program. I know my chances of getting in are slim, but I don't want to squander the opportunity to consider the two in case I get in by some crazy chance. I didn't respond to my acceptance letter, but today the department chair emailed me and wanted to know if I had any updates on my decision. She said she at least wanted me to confirm I received the application. I apologized for the delay in getting back to her, and I also expressed that I wanted to wait on one more school before making my final decision. I also mentioned that I am very excited about their program and I will more than likely accept their offer - I just want to hear back about the other school's decision before going forward with them. Now I'm kind of paranoid that this wasn't a great thing to say, but it is the truth, and I don't want to leave her hanging not knowing what my status is going to be until I decide to accept or decline. Is it okay to tell the accepting school that you're still waiting on another decision? I told her I am very interested in the program, so hopefully that shows I am not going to just blow them off. But I also don't want to waste the opportunity to hear back from the other school as well. I am not as invested in the other school in terms of location or style, necessarily. The one I got accepted to is perfect for location and the style of writing I'm focused on, but the one I'm waiting on is a more reputable program in a bigger city. I feel like I have already decided, but I also don't want to jump the gun on it without giving it enough consideration. She actually just replied and said she was glad I got the acceptance and gave me a little more details about the open house. I guess I'm just paranoid, but I want to make sure that it didn't look badly on me for telling her I'm still waiting. I assume they hear that a lot, though. Also, is it okay for me to contact the other school to see what their updates are in terms of sending out decisions or should I wait? I haven't seen anything on forums, and this is a school where I know there would be at least a few people posting about acceptances or rejections. There are rumors they are going to send decisions in March, but the open house is in March, too, and I would like to go if possible. Any advice?
  24. Has anyone heard back from any of their School Psych Masters programs? I've applied to Appalachian State and also University of Denver.

    NCSU Plant Biology PhD Acceptance?

    Has anyone received an acceptance and or rejection letter yet from North Carolina State University (NCSU) for the Plant Biology PhD Program starting Fall 2018? I heard the tentative date was mid-late Feb and as it gets later in the month I'm beginning to get nervous. I've read some other threads saying candidates for the program have been asked to do email interviews and come for a visitation weekend this month. If anyone has been accepted or rejected, could you please tell me what date you found out and any other info you are comfortable sharing (such as what you were offered exactly as far as funding/assistantships). Thanks!
