  1. Hello! I applied a week after the initial Fall 2019 deadline for the Counseling, Marriage and Family Therapy program. The Dean gave her approval that it was fine. My application was under review about 8 days ago. How long do you think it would take for me to hear back from them? Also my GRE scores, were a little below the average do I still stand a good chance of getting in? This school is my first choice and I am so anxious!!
  2. Hello everyone! I’m planning to apply to PhD programs in either Pharmacology or Comparative Medicine next fall. However, I’m in a bit of a pickle. For context, I’m an upcoming third year university student and I’m currently working at a large pharmaceutical company. This is a great opportunity for me because I plan to work in the biotech/pharmaceutical industry after I obtain my PhD degree (fingers crossed). Admittedly, with my current position, I’m not as heavily involved in research as I’d like to be but I do get exposure to it. However, my company is offering to “promote” me to a study technician next summer where I will get more hands-on with their research projects. Although this is a fantastic offer, I was also debating on applying to REU programs for next summer. I have never formally presented a research poster and I’m concerned that PhD programs may favor REU experience over industry experience. I understand that REU programs are notoriously difficult to get into so I’m wondering if there’s a point in applying when I already have a wonderful opportunity at my current company. I also get paid significantly more working there than I will at any REU program. If anyone could offer any advice or thoughts. I would sincerely appreciate it. Thank you in advance :)!
  3. Hi Everyone! I was wondering if I could get some advice on what tiers of schools I should apply for? I am going to apply for an MS in stats OR CS (Fall 2021). Demographics: Eastern European Undergrad: McGill Major: Joint Honours Mathematics and Economics GPA: 3.72 overall, Math major GPA: 3.73, Econ major GPA: 3.65 Coursework: MATH: Calc 3, Advanced (A,A), Honours Algebra 1, 2, 3, 4 (A,A-,A,B-), Honours Analysis 1,2 (A,A-), Honours ODEs (A), Honours Probability (A-), Honours Nonlinear Dynamics (A), Honours PDEs (B), Honours Statistics (A-). ECON: Honours Econometrics I (A-), Honours Econometrics II (A-) and other Macro/Micro classes CS: Only took one Foundation of Programming class but currently I work in data science. Professional Experience: Working at a top tier consulting firm as an analyst/junior data scientist, mainly doing NLP and participating in building/deploying web apps on Azure/AWS. Doing a lot data cleaning and engineering. This mainly the reason I started considering CS or Applied Computing masters. Letters: I can get a very strong letter from a Senior Data Scientist colleague or form a DS Partner in the firm. Unfortunately, I did not do undergrad research but still can get good recommendation letters from my professors. GRE: Current GRE results V:155 Q:163. Planning to retake it. I am wondering what tiers of schools would be best to apply for? Which schools should I aim for and which should I keep as a plan B? I am mainly look for schools in the US and UK. Thank you very much for your help!

  5. Hello! I'm new to this forum but looking for some advice. For context, I am a Canadian graduate of a 4 year combined dual degree-diploma program which left me with an Honours Bachelor of Applied Science in Psychology and a Diploma in General Arts and Science (graduated with distinction). I specialized my studies by almost exclusively doing life sciences electives, like biochemistry and cell biology, neuroscience, human anatomy and physiology, etc. This gave me a few hundred hours of laboratory experience. I did a few Research Assistantships in my undergrad, one of which lead me to a publication. My original intent was to apply to medical school right after undergrad, but I have realized that becoming a Research Coordinator/Research Scientist or Principal Investigator is really what I would rather do as a career. With this in mind, I am hoping to apply to MSc. Medical Sciences at McMaster University in Hamilton, ON, as well as the MSc. Neuroscience program and the MSc. Biomedical and Molecular Science at Queen's University in Kingston, ON. With a degree in Psychology, do I have a chance of even getting my foot in the door with these more traditionally "hard science" Master's degrees? I would be grateful for any advice you may have on Statements of Interest or other components of the application to bolster my chances of getting an offer of admission. Thanks, Hannah
  6. Hello all! I'm interested in applying for an MS in Biostatistics (Fall 2021) but am having trouble finding admissions data so I was wondering what you all thought about my application profile and how much of a chance I stood at the schools I'm interested in. Here's my profile: Undergrad Institution: The College of William and Mary Undergrad Major: B.S. Self-designed major called Epidemiology & Biostatistics GPA: 3.80 Relevant Courses: Math: Calc I and II, Linear Algebra, Multivariable Calculus, Prob. and Stat. for Scientist, Statistical Data Analysis Biology: 2 Semesters of intro bio, Biostatistics, and Quantitative Biology CompSci: Programming for Data Science Health Science: Foundations of Epidemiology, Public Health, Human Physiology, and Microbes in Human Disease GRE General: V/Q/A: 157/160/4 Programs Applying: Biostatistics MS at.. Emory, George Washington, Georgetown, Columbia, Brown, and Yale Research Experience: 4 years in undergraduate psychology research lab Teaching Experience: TA for Foundations of Epidemiology (1 semester), TA for Intro to Biostatistics (1 semester), and Library tutor for Calc I and II (2 semesters) Public Health Experience: 90h internship at my local health department, 70h volunteering at my local free clinic, and 30h shadowing surgeons (not sure if this is relevant enough to put on my applications) Leadership Experience (not sure if this is relevant either): Co-Fundraising Chair, Vice President, and President of my college choir in successive years Thanks! Please let me know what you think! Also, I'd love to hear any advice you have on applying in general!
  7. Hey everybody, Im looking to apply to various programs and have been doing research + getting everything ready etc etc .... I already have 3 reference letters(2 profs who taught me + 1 who supervised me for honors thesis) from last year as I applied to medical school and didnt get(yay) in and im just going to ask the referees to make some adjustments in the letter to fit grad schools if needed. Main question is how is everyone generally going through with the process of getting the letters and how many schools are you applying to. Also has anyone used interfolio ? Im thinking of putting my reference letters on there if possible as to not bother my references.. However I've also heard most schools dont accept it. * I'm just slightly worried about my referees having to upload their letters 10 different times* On that note how many programs everyone generally applying to at once, i understand this varies for everyone situation but I just want to hear some general feedback
  8. Hey there! I am graduating with a degree in Communication Disorders and a minor in Autism Studies. My question is I am graduating undergrad with 2.9 cumulative GPA and 3.5 major GPA. I have a variety of clinical experience and HUGE passion for the field. I have good letters of recommendation. I have yet to take the GRE because I did not think I was good enough for a grad program. My professor this last semester has continued to tell me how awesome I am in the clinic and I am in the right profession (she did not know I wasn't thinking about grad school). Her saying this has given me some courage. I am just wanting to know the odds of being accepted into a program like this? Best, Lauren Neighbors
  9. Hello all! So I'm going to be applying to some Biostatistics MS programs in the Fall and am not sure exactly who I should ask to write my recommendation letters. Right now, my plan is to ask my major advisor (I took his biostatistics class and TA-ed for it in a subsequent semester), my psychology research lab professor (I've been working in her lab for 4 years), and my choir director (at my university choir is a 1-credit class. I've been a part of the choir for 4 years and was our fundraising chair, vice president, and president consecutively in the latter 3 years.). I've chosen these professors because they know me very well and will all write very strong letters, however, I'm worried that admissions committees will want to see letters from more relevant disciplines. Should I sacrifice one (or more) of these strong letters for an average letter from a professor in the math or biology departments? Thanks!

  11. Hello! Has anyone heard from TUM regarding Wintersemester 2020/21 masters admissions? and does anyone have any idea how long it takes to hear back about admissions from TUM after your documents have been sent to the intended department? Any information would be highly appreciated, thanks in advance!
  12. Hey guys, I am wondering if you or your friends have heard anything from Columbia University Teachers College about the admission into M.A. Program in Socia-Organizational Psychology (S/O Psychology). I have been admitted to the M.A Program of I/O Psychology from NYU, but still waiting for Columbia's decision since it would be my top choice to study at TC. (it's a long wait and kinda drives me crazy...) Lemme know if you are also waiting for hearing from them. Thanks!
  13. Travel bans are being imposed and consulates are being closed down in many countries. So, what's going to happen to international students? Are their admission and/or funding going to be cancelled if things don't get better? What can happen in worst case scenario? I am very anxious about the situation.
  14. (hopefully this is the right forum to be posting in) I'm just wondering if anyone thinks there's a delay in admissions updates because of the current grad student strike? I was informally emailed that I was accepted into my program (2/13) and was told to expect additional emails about my admission, i.e. a financial support package, but I haven't heard anything. My application hasn't been updated to "accepted" in the portal either. So, is anyone who's been accepted into UCSC experiencing something similar? Do you think it's because of the strike? Do you think anything will happen to current/prospective grad students because of the strike? Am I just being too anxious? 😧
  15. I was interviewed by the professor I had contact with on last Tuesday and no further information since then. I am wondering if the admission is already done. Will the opinions from PIs matter?
  16. Hi all! I wanted to start a thread for those applying to MSW/PhD programs. I am currently considering applying to a ton of programs to increase my chances of acceptance. I already have an MPP. It looks like most programs want you to already have a masters prior to applying. I have also worked in healthcare and health policy for about 8 years. Stats, if interested: - BS from Cornell. GPA: 3.4, but I was pre-med and took a ton of life science courses. Excellent grades in social science courses. - MPP from Brown. They do not do GPA and only give whole letter grades (no +/-). - GRE: V 162/ Q 157/ W 5.5 (V+Q 319)
  17. Hey guys! My question comes more or so in the context of how do they admit students? Do they send out admissions in waves (days/weeks at a time), do they send out all of their admissions letters in one day? I know there is the process of a waitlist... but it's all so confusing. Hope this makes sense?! If anyone has known or heard anything about specific schools or just in general your feedback would be appreciated. Thank you.
  18. Hello there 🙂, I'm seeking to apply for Computer Science PhD next fall. Here are the list of questions that I have : Does it matter if I have research experience on a different topic than what I'm interested in? I am interested in ML/NLP but most of my experience was done on cloud computing I have written multiple research papers but most were from individual studies. Only one is currently being reviewed for publication, I am unsure whether if it will get published tbh. Does my non-published papers matter and is it a good idea to list them on my CV? Tips on reaching out to Professors at target Universities I feel awkward when communicate via email especially at someone I don't know I also have read up some of their papers and I would like to ask them a few questions regarding about it. How should I approach this? Tips on writing statement of purpose How to brag but not sound egotistic....? Is it a good idea to talk about individual research/studies that I've done on my own? Does your undergrad school matters when applying for doctoral program in other Universities? Tips on CV? Thank you!
  19. International student. I just applied for my alma mater, ERAU PhD Aerospace Engineering program /fall 2020. Background: B.S and MS. Aerospace Engineering from Embry Riddle - Daytona beach campus(CGPA 3.47 & 3.7. Received scholarship and stipend for MS.). 12 years of working experience in a third world country (National engineering director of huge projects). Terrible GRE scores ( 150 V, 154 Q, 4 AW = 12 years away from academia and mathematical training 🙈). Personal visit to the University on September (spoke with program coordinator and lots of teachers)... 2/3 letters of recommendations form PhD AE program teachers. Do you thing I have any chance of being accepted? Fingers crossed
  20. Hi, When I submitted my application materials to graduate schools in late November I didn't have any publications. However, before the New Year my colleagues and I are going to submit a paper. Should I email/call the admission departments of the schools I haven't heard back yet to ask if they will accept an updated CV? The first CV I sent did not mention the paper at all. Obviously, a paper submission will make my application stronger, but I worry that asking admissions to accept an update will be frowned upon. Plus, half of them already sent out their interview invites. Thank you in advance for your input! p.s. Happy Holidays!
  21. I applied to Cornell's College of Agriculture and Life Sciences for PhD program. I have talked with PI before submitting the application. I have 3.9 GPA from Master , 2 publications and one paper as the lead author under review in a great journal and plenty of research experiences. I think PI really likes me but, he said he doesn't have funding right now. He still asked me to apply for it and is willing to seek out funding options for me. I may be a very strong candidate as the program fits me, my background and future goals like a glove plus competitive academic profile. I am scared that I will get rejected because PI cannot show the funding this year. He recently got hired so, he is very active academically and applying for funding actively as well. What is the likelihood that I will get rejected? Any advice on anything that I can do?
  22. I am stressing over everything right now. Do programs generally contact you if you have missing documents such as LORs, test scores? Or is it all on the online portal so as long as there are no outstanding items then you are good?
  23. I am applying for my MFA in creative writing. my grades are great and i've been told I have a strong and impressive portfolio but gaining entrance to a creative writing MFA program is very difficult, competitive, relative, and highly selective so I am not a shoo-in anywhere. For one of my graduate applications I submitted the application but put off submitting the fee and then my application status said my fee was waived but there was no explanation. is this normal? does it mean anything? another school I applied to sent me a hand written letter saying they are "thrilled" I submitted my application. Is this normal? does it mean anything? thanks
  24. I have applied for Masters in Electrical and Computer Engineering for Winter 2020 intake on July 7th. My undergrad % is 74% with IELTS score as 7. But my application status still shows 'Priliminary review required' Does this mean I must leave hopes on this Carleton University?
  25. Hi all, Anyone has information on which universities in the USA that admit students with a GRE score of less than 300 into its PhD in Business/Management program? I have taken GRE several times and my latest GRE score is only 305. (Quantitative 148, Verbal 155). (GRE is US205 converted into my currency in Indonesian rupiah.. it's more than 2 millions) Universities do not mention their minimum GRE but some professors told me that when they review, they will put aside those whose GRE is not competitive. Although I have publications and research experiences, I was rejected by Minnesota, Iowa, MSU, etc. (fall 2019 admission) and have spent a few hundreds dollars for admission fees. I also have a PhD in Education (from ISU) but I'd like to take another PhD which will be in Business/ Management, so that I have a linear degrees (my Master is in Management/MBA). I'm from Indonesia and the linearity of graduate degrees is required to become a professor (or even get hired as a lecturer). Any help/thoughts are appreciated.. Thanks.
