  1. is it worth it?

    So I want to apply to grad school for speech path this upcoming year. My main concern is my horrible mark that I got in Phonetics - C+. It is my lowest mark and I know that a lot of schools look at prereqs in which case Phonetics is typically one. I have a B+ average and hoping to get more A's this year to at least bring up my GPA. I am also a French minor (fluent in French) and wanted to apply to either Université d'Ottawa, Université du Québec, Université de Laval and Université de Montréal. Anyone who has applied to these schools or attended them? Or any advice at all in terms of getting in? Thanks!
  2. Hello All, I just wanted to create a section where we can share any news, or progress regarding Spring 2018 admission into Fordham University's MSW Program. According to admissions, the application will open up either July 1st or Mid July (around July 15th).
  3. MFA application opened up this month!!! Who's ready for 2018 freak-out forum?
  4. is stanford GRE dates strict?

    hello, i was wondering if anyone knows about the gre scores at stanford(gse) i'm going to take the test in october but i want to take it again in november. is it ok to take it in november when they say taking it until october is recommended?(on the website) not sure if this is really strict or it might be ok to take it one more time in november
  5. Hello, this is my first post here:) I am an international applicant and planning to apply for the 2018 Fall Statistics program. I am currently browsing each school website for some information which could be helpful for my school list. I have a question here: Though ranking is the most important aspect when deciding which school to apply, just in terms of admission strategy/possibility, will it be helpful or meaningful to apply for schools whose faculty and research fit me well and strongly emphasize that point in my SOP or CV? I heard stat/math phd admission process cares more about quantitative record(GRE, gap, etc.) than SOP/CV. Also there is possibility that my research interests may change over time and the information I get from websites seems somewhat uncertain and glimpse. I just don't know what would be a suitable strategy deciding schools. I need some advice and help from here.. Thank you.
  6. Required Courses

    I'm an Ontario student going into my 3rd year in hopes of getting in a masters program in molecular biology or food science. This semester I am taking a biochemistry course. With this course there is also a complementary lab course offered that is not required in my program, however, most other programs in my department need to take it. I am unsure if I should take this course as it may be looked for during admissions, although if I didn't need to take it I could use this additional time to volunteer in one of my professor's lab to gain experience. I have looked into the admissions of these programs in my area and the minimum requirement is having a BSc along with the required average and letters of recommendation so It seems like not taking this course wouldn't affect me. Although, even if this course is not required for my Bsc, I feel as if not taking this course will heavily hurt my chances. Should I take this Biochemistry lab or use the time to build my research experience?
  7. Hey everyone! I was hoping to see if we could get together a list of statistics for admissions for Canadian MPH programs!

  8. Hi guys, it's my first post here. I plan to apply for PhD program in Biostatistics in 2018 Fall. Can anyone help decide which programs to apply for? I understand that my profile doesn't look good as compared to others that I have seen on the site. Thanks in advance! Undergrad Institution: Ordinary institution in Asia (2011-2015) Major(s): Statistics GPA: 88/100 Type of Student: male, international GRE General Test: Q 170; V 160; AW 3.5 Programs Applying: PhD in Biostatistics Graduate Institution: Private research institution in New England, ranks 40 (2015-2017) Major(s): Biostatistics Degree: Master of Public Health GPA: 3.8 Research Experience: A few projects in undergrad, published a working paper for a conference, participated in project reports drafting. I worked as RA in my masters program under a research center at School of Medicine. After graduation, I was employed full time as Statistical Data Analyst at the same center. I have done 14 projects with 10 collaborators, mostly physicians at the university teaching hospital. I have submitted 4 manuscripts, and they are under review now. But I'm not sure how many of them would be published by the application deadline. Also I have an oral presentation on APHA annual meeting in Atlanta in November this year. Awards/Honors/Recognitions: Some awards in college, and a scholarship in UW summer institute 2017 (SISBID) Pertinent Activities,Jobs: I took many math classes in undergrad, algebra, probability theory, advanced calculus, nonparametric statistics, real analysis, multivariate statistics, etc. Most of them were above 85/100. My graduate courses are more applied statistics. Now I'm a full-time employee as Statistical Data Analyst. Letters of Recommendation: One from my statistical courses in grad school, one from a clinician from the teaching hospital who I collaborated with during masters program, and one from my graduate mentor, current employer. They should all be good. Computing Skills: R, SAS, Stata Applying to Where: Boston University, Vanderbilt, Ohio state? Am I too ambitious?
  9. Hi everyone, I am an international undergraduate student at DePaul University in Chicago. I am majoring in Mathematics and Computer Science and planning to apply for PhD programs for Fall 2018, focusing on AI/Machine Learning. I have been doing research in Machine Learning with one of my Math professors for the last couple of months (we were awarded a research grant for two terms). By the time of the application deadlines, I will have done approximately one year of research and hope to have written a paper (or a pre-print). Here is my profile: Major: Mathematics and Computer Science GPA: 3.95 LORs: All from tenured professors, one is my current research supervisor. Research: As stated above, I have research experience. GRE: V156 (75th%), Q169 (97th%), AWA5.0 (93rd%) Here are my questions: 1) Do you think my overall profile (considering I will have good letters and SOP) would be a strong fit for top 20 schools? 2) Should I take the GRE again in order to get a better Verbal score, considering that I want to get into a T20 school? Thanks in advance.
  10. Admission in universities in texas

    Hey everyone!! I got a score 310 in gre. 160 n 150 in quants n verbal respectively. I want to get enrolled in some good university in texas in fall 2018. I am looking forward to plan my next step. Can anyone guide me about what my next step should be. Should I give the gre again otherwise how can I best utilise my time in making my profile better. What are the options I have? Thank you
  11. I'd like to steer my career towards policy, specifically as related to economic inequality, and to facilitate that transition I intend to pick up an MPP sometime in the next few years. A lot of things about my application look strong -- I got a BA in Economics from a Top 30 program, I did really well on the GRE a couple of months ago (167/167/5.0) and my work experience is solid (I was a financial analyst at a successful startup, I did an Americorps VISTA year and I'm currently waiting to begin a position as a GS-11 Program Analyst with HUD). The only thing I feel is holding me back is that my undergrad GPA was outright awful -- 2.41 cumulative, not much higher than that in-major. In light of that, I'm trying to do everything I can pad out my application over the next year or so. Elsewhere in the forums I came across the idea of doing a non-degree grad school course and that made a lot of sense to me, so I got registered at American U for PUAD601, Quantitative Methods for Policy Analysis. My reasoning with picking this course is that: 1) it seems substantially rigorous to display academic competency should I do well in it; 2) it seems like it would be universally relevant to whichever graduate program I might end up attending in the future; and 3) picking up extra Stata experience can't be a bad thing in the job market (I've been waiting for about six months for this HUD position to start, so I'm getting a bit antsy and considering backup options). My questions are: A) did I pick the right course?; and B) even if I pull an A in this course, will I have any chance of being admitted into a decent program with such a low undergrad GPA? The process for applying to and being admitted to this course happened really quickly, so I'm just looking for some input on whether I'm making the right decision here -- it's a significant expense to take a class this way, after all. Regarding A: the other course that seemed reasonable to me was Econometrics, but I wouldn't be able to take it until next semester for scheduling reasons. Any input as to whether one might be a better option than the other for me, or as to whether it might be reasonable to take both? Thanks!
  12. Masdar fall 2017

    I was recently emailed by masdar and was told that I am on the shortlist for admission. Is that a good thing? And when can I expect to receive the final decision?
  13. Hey all So I applied to PhD and got rejected . I know I made a mistake of applying to only one program , but I learnt my lesson now. So I am re-doing the whole process again . should I apply at the same program that rejeted me (smarter this time) , or should I just ignore them ? should I send them email asking them about reasons ? or not ? Are they going to actually tell me ? or give me a vague answer ? I will be applying at many programs , should I say at the interview that I am applying at different programs ? or should I shut up about it ? what if they ask me about it how can I answer ? one more thing , if I apply at the program that once rejected me next year , what should I do ? act like nothing happened ? or acknowledge at the interview that I applied before ? thanks
  14. Hi buddies I'm a bachelor of chemical eng. and really really like to continue in the fields including space eng., astrophysics or cosmology... Anyone Anyone can help me and have any advice? please...I'll be grateful if anyone suggest even as a sentence. Thank you
  15. Hi everyone, I'm planning on applying to a Biochem program for fall 2018, but I am very much concerned about if my situation will even put me in the game or if I have a chance at admission and interviews. So I have been working in a small government chemistry lab for almost 1 year, with possibly 1 publication in the near future. I was hoping taking two years and getting some experience in the field would help my application, but I am not sure if working in a chem lab is any helpful since I want to be in a bio lab. Will this be disadvantageous towards my application? This is one of my main concerns, which is the reason I am looking for positions in a bio related lab. I also interned as a research assistant during my undergrad at a clinical research institute and was also a lab assistant for my undergrad Bio department. I graduated from a liberal arts school and had a cumulative GPA of 3.63 and science GPA of 3.68, obviously not much different. I'm planning to take my GRE at the end of this month, but I'm terrified that if I don't get around the 80% percentile, then I won't have any chances with everything else in my application. I would love to go to UC Davis, but I also have many other schools in mind like: - Temple Uni- Uni of Colorado- Bolder -UC San Fran - UC Santa Barbara - Indiana - Wakeforest Uni - Rockefeller - NYU - Uni of Florida - Darthmouth Does anyone have any advice for this daunting process? Feel free to share any experiences or impressions about schools and programs. Thank you!!
  16. CSUB MSW PROGRAM - Fall 2017

    So I could not find any other active forums about CSUB which is why I'm making this one. Has anyone applied to CSUB? If so have you heard anything back yet? I applied the 1st week of December via email. Still waiting on a response...
  17. Hello, I'm interested in the one year Master of Science in Public Policy program at NYU's Wagner School. It seems like a pretty unique program to me, and I'm having trouble finding any information about acceptance rates or thoughts on past applicants. etc. Does anyone have any thoughts about this program or is anyone else applying/does anyone know any admissions statistics? Thank you! - M
  18. Hello fellow students, I just wanted to inquire if anyone has heard from Memorial University in regards to their Masters in Psychology application for Fall 2017 semester? More so, I was wondering how the acceptances/rejections work and if there is a waitlist? Will I receive an email acceptance/rejection or something in the mail? Just today my Application Status was changed from "Complete - Ready for Review" to "Decision Made" therefore, I emailed the Graduate Studies Office and waiting for reply. Though I still remain hopeful for an acceptance, it is pretty late to receive one. Compared to other programs, is this considered late to hear back? I really appreciate any feedback/opinions/questions/critique/insight/etc.! Thanks a lot in advance!
  19. I have a three years BA degree with specialisations in Economics from a college affiliated to University of Pune, India. I was wondering my chances of getting into a good Masters in Economics Program(Msc. or MA or Masters in Economics) on a scholarship. Here are my details: Grades: 66% cumulative of three years GRE: 161quant 157verbal and 4 AWA TOEFL: 107 I am specifically looking at universities where they take 3 years bachelor students.

  20. Waterloo or Saint Paul

    So I need opinions. I have been accepted to the Masters of Peace and Conflict Studies at both Saint Paul and University of Waterloo. I'm not sure which I should go to. I get more funding at Waterloo, but there is not a thesis or MRP option. Only coursework which is not 100% okay with me. Waterloo is only 16 months but Ottawa is a full two years. Waterloo has an overall better reputation that Saint Paul, but Saint Paul is highly connected with University of Ottawa. The Saint Paul faculty has been educated from Oxford to UofT, while Waterloo is mostly smaller American universities. I am able to get an internship at both schools, but Waterloo really pushes this and seems more experienced in this department. I am able to get both an RA or TA position at both. Help would be appreciated!!
  21. I am a Canadian Undergrad that received offers from Paris School of Economics M2 program, London School of Economics MSc Econ program, and University of Toronto Msc Econ program. I kind of regret not applying to Harvard or MIT because I received offers from every school I applied. I will probably pursue PhD at one of Harvard, MIT, Chicago, and UC Berkeley. At the end of the day, I want to land a position of Economics Professor at any of top 10 institutions. I specialize in Microeconomic theory and in particular the mathematics and game theory. I am really flexible in terms of research area since I have undergrad degree in math and by this, I mean learning a new topic in economics isn't a big concern for me. Offers: PSE - second year masters, almost free tuition (basically skipping a year of comprehensives. I super hate tests) LSE- admissions UofT- admissions on full financial support $18000 UBC- admissions on moderate support $14000 I am leaning towards PSE or UofT. PSE is highly ranked. UofT prof there seems to really want me there. Which school would you choose if these schools offered admissions to you?
  22. Mba application

    Hi to all, Having graduated from one of Turkey's reputable universities in 2010 ( BS Engineering, gpa 2.01), I began to work in sales and marketing departments of corporate companies. Now having worked 5 years full time, I decided to add an mba vision both for myself and my career. I want to ask you which way I should follow? I need your advices. -Can I apply for a grad school such a low gpa? Does it sound logical for admittance? -Should I just prefer only my country Turkey for Mba or does having an Mba from USA or UK get more to my career? -Should I decide the grad school location after the application? As you see I am really confused, I am not sure on which step I should start? Thanks for your advices,
  23. Seeking out International Finance and Economics (MA), Ryerson University FALL 17 STUDENTS Hi, I applied to International Finance and Economics (MA, F-17), Ryerson University.

Has anyone heard anything back even from them even in different subject? Moreover, how many students do they enroll in that course and how do i know about my application status?
  24. Chances of Admission

    Hey guys! I was unable to get accepted into my top program and am still waiting to hear back from a few others. I am thinking about reapplying but was wondering if I was competitive enough to re-apply for next cycle even if I havent taken any communication science courses. My stats are: 3.1 cummulative GPA (major in Chemistry) 150 vr 149 qr 4.5 w GRE 25 shadowing hours (is this too little? how many hours do students normally apply with?) Various volunteering/community service hours, but no experience in this field except for shadowing. Do I have to take specific communication science courses or can I still apply without taking them? I dont know if I can afford to take them. And how much experience do students typically have in this field before applying? I'm from a small town so a comm science major wasnt even offered at my university. Are there any agencies I can get in touch with to gain more experience in this field and do schools favor slp/comm science majors over other science majors? Any advice would be very much appreciated!
  25. I noticed that the previous thread was blocked, and even though it's rather late, I figured it was still worthwhile to start a new one! Where is everyone at with their admission statuses??
