    William and Mary Counseling

    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!!
  3. Hey guys! I plan to pursue my Masters in International Relations from the UK. I am completely confused about the University that I should accept an offer from, because the data from the internet is really unreliable and inconsistent. Different rankings provide a different status to different universities. So the inconsistency does not really help. My top choices at the moment (in that order) are: 1) LSE 2) SOAS 3) King's College 4)University of Manchester I hold an offer from all the above universities except LSE. I have applied to many other universities for the same course, so please feel free to include other university suggestions for the course.
  4. I just heard back from a professor that I emailed to tell him about my interest in his line of work. He told me this: "G lad to hear you applied. I think that our admissions period for this year might have ended, good luck with the admissions process." Does this mean that they have accepted all or most of the students they want? Or it simply means that the application submission has ended. English is not my first language and I just want to make sure that I'm not misunderstanding it.
  5. MFA application opened up this month!!! Who's ready for 2018 freak-out forum?
  6. Hi, In general what are the odds of getting into a PhD program with funding if you were invited for a graduate recruitment event? Has there been a case where a school paid for your visit and later on denied you admission into the program or is being invited for an open house subtly implying an automatic admission? Thanks
  7. 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!
  8. I know that the final deadline for accepting offers is 15th of April, but I was wondering if it is possible to receive admission/GRA offers after that date if a faculty members wants you to join their lab.
  9. Hi, I have already received the admission letter from Master of Arts program in International Educational Development at Teachers College, Columbia University and Master of Education program in Child Studies at Peabody, Vanderbilt University. I'm from China and want some advice for my decision. Here are my expectations: 1. To build a solid foundation of knowledge in education, including research skills in specialized aspects(such as developmental psychology) and strategic view of macro policy. I want to relate good-quality products with needs of real world, which requires strong insights. As for my professional goals, I want to be a specialist in educational intervention design in the short term and a leader in the long term. 2. To make friends with interesting, outstanding and steady classmates. 3. To focus on study and practice 4. To find a job with reasonable salaries after graduation 5. To balance life and study during graduate school Thanks a lot if you do have some suggestions😊
  10. Hi guys, So I applied to the MA program in Comparative Cultural Analysis at the University of Amsterdam in Fall 2019. Deadline for program application was March 1, but I submitted mine before Jan 15 because I also applied to the Amsterdam Merit Scholarship. On March 11 the school sent me an announcement that I was granted the scholarship. However, they told me that the fact I got the scholarship meant I “would likely be an excellent student for the program,” but I was “not yet officially admitted to the program.” They said the scholarship and the admission are 2 separate processes, and that the admission result will come in 3-4 more weeks (which means April 15-30). I am freaking out because this is a very weird situation. Do you think I should be worried about not being admitted at all, even given the scholarship. I know the scholarship is given to competitive candidates (only a few are provided to the whole Humanities department) but since they said it is separate from the admission, would the admission board ignore it? Or would the scholarship guarantee a place for me already? Thanks.
  11. I wanted to crowd-source some reasons for how people are making their final decisions. I realize this is a convenient spot for a lot of us to be in, but it is also a very difficult one. I know my pre-submission impressions were that I would not be in this predicament; I wholeheartedly expected to be accepted at just one place. But, here we are. Any advice helps! All the best,

    Funding Considerations - Advice Needed

    Hi all, Is a score of 307 too low for funding consideration and/or admission to an MPP program? I am not great at standardized tests which is why I am debating retaking it, however, I am not sure I can do that much better. This is the one portion of my application that is causing me anxiety. 5.5 Writing 153 Q 154 V My undergraduate GPA is 3.33 (3.60 in my major) and I will have five years of work experience by the time I enroll. Most of my experience is in private sector within the healthcare industry. Schools I am applying to: Michigan (Ford), Duke (Sanford), and Chicago (Harris). Thank you.
  13. Hi, In month of March and April, are any admissions deadline open for phd in economics from USA or Canada or Europe?

    should I go to a small program?

    Hi there, I got a PhD offer this year and really hope to receive some suggestions. The supervisor has a big name in my field and she is super nice. Also, the location is quite good. However, the program is pretty small (only 3 faculty members and they only send 1-2 PhD offers each year) and the fundings can't be guaranteed. My supervisor told me I will get 6-month RA support and 9-month tuition waiver in the first year. It will depend on my progress to get different types of fundings in the next 4 years. Does anyone have some opinions? Thx a lot!!!
  15. Hi, I am an international student. I have been accepted from these 3 universities mentioned in the title. However, I really cannot choose since there are too many parameters involved. Boston: Insanely good money(fellowship) , really good location, decent teachers Purdue: Insanely good teaching(?), High prestige(?), very bad location, decent money Maryland: Very good money(fellowship), RA position with a good advisor, good location Since I am an international, I really would like to know your thoughts about the prestige of these schools and also your experiences about these schools. How are they known by U.S citizens? Which school has a better research output? (Even though I looked at THE Rankings, I believe it is better if I get more info. about these schools)
  16. I was accepted to a Master's program, but I intend to enroll in a PhD program (accepted to a few PhD programs). Thus, I will be declining the M.S. program offer. However, I was invited to an in-person visit and online (via Zoom) Q&A session. Should I decline the offer before these visit days or attend the online Q&A as a courtesy..? I'm nervous about declining schools ugh
  17. Hi Is there anyone here who is applying / current or ex student of the Masters in Development Studies/ Masters in International Affairs Program at IHEID, Geneva. I had a couple of queries on admissions, scholarships and career prospects. thanks
  18. In other majors, I saw that many departments (psychology, sometimes sociology) are interviewing the prospective students before admitting them to the Ph.D. program. In political science, is this a common practice? Have you ever been interviewed before by an admission officer or by your POI?

    PhD in Cancer Biology

    Hello everyone! I am new in this Forum so I don't exactly know how it works... But anyway, I am going to explain my situation and see if I can get any help (which I would really appreciate). I am planning to apply to my PhD this fall as an international student. I am from Europe and I did my bachelor there. It is my first time ever applying to an American university, so any advice would be helpful. - Bachelor/Masters in Pharmacy (I put Masters because it takes 5 years, it is considered Bachelor+Master in Europe, and I have a paper that gives it the academic equivalence to Doctor of Pharmacy in the US, if that works). My GPA is 7.1/10. I know. Everyone is going to think that is really low, but in Europe and in pharmacy school, nobody has a GPA of 9/10, for example. So mine is pretty good at my university. I also have honors in my final thesis (cancer-related) and it is considered the best thesis of my promotion. - Research experience: one semester as an undergrad (around 25 h per week), 6 month as an exchange student in America (no classes, just research), currently doing research in one of the Top20 Universities in the U.S. (not an Ivy, but ranked better than most of them). By the time I apply my experience in this last university will be of 1 year but by the time I start my PhD it would be of 2 years. - Other experience: 1 year as a retail pharmacist, 6 month internship as a clinical pharmacist in a Hospital in Europe. - Publications: 3 posters (2 Top European conferences and 1 at the university that I am working in right now) but no PubMed publications... - Speaker at one conference. - Lots of volunteering in Heathcare. I also just got a 6-month fellowship (cancer-related) from a really prestigious foundation, only 27 people in the U.S got it and it was one per institution. TOEFL: I took it a while ago and I got a 104, the minimum required is 100 in most Ivys, maybe I will retake it if I have time. GRE: Haven't taken it yet but I am currently studying for it, I am planning to take it in one month. GRE Biology: is it worth taking it? I wanted to apply to Ivy leagues and high-ranked universities for my PhD in Cancer Biology, but I also want to be realistic and know honest opinions as if I stand any chance to get in. Thank you!

    Statement of Purpose

    Can anyone evaluate my SOP? I always loved mathematics. It seemed to me mysterious as a game and fulfilling when a problem is being solved. However, when I got older, developed the idea that mathematics is just a game is not the whole story. Through my bachelor, I took courses in various fields from geometry to probability and statistics. For the bachelor project, I elaborated a paper named “A Problem in Cartography” by John Milnor, a discussion on which is the best way to project a sphere on a plane. I continued my studies in Pure Mathematics, getting admission from Sharif university of technology by achieving rank 28 in Master University Entry exam. At Sharif, after taking “Real Analysis”, “Ergodic Theory” and “Stochastic Analysis” became interested in stochastic processes. They seemed to include thorough theoretical concepts and a broad range of applications in the real world, satisfying my desires. Moreover, my country and the world has been suffering myriads of financial crises. Therefore, more complex and accurate financial instruments are needed. Specifically, I am interested in improving option pricing model of Black-Scholes, having unrealistic assumptions toward the market. For instance, consider the neglect of liquidity risk a factor causing the 2008 crisis and the constant mean and volatility of stock price that contrasts with the market, switching regimes now and then. As my A grades of “Real Analysis”, “Ergodic Theory” and “Stochastic Analysis” indicates, I have a professional background in stochastic processes. And with the diverse math courses, taken during my bachelor and master, I have the ability of perceiving problems more easily. Nonetheless, option pricing is not all about mathematics. Eventually, one has to develop a basic understanding of financial and economical understanding. As so, I obtained the requirement by auditing “Mathematical Finance”, “Financial Econometrics”, “Microeconomics”, “Financial Engineering” and “Foundations of Economics” during the 1-year gap through my master. In addition, I acquired R programming skills which seems to be vital with the increasing complex calculations, including time series analysis, statistics and deep learning. However, my bachelor GPA is 2.9 and is lower than the required one, my master GPA is 3.9, showing my significant improvement. The “Math and Stats” MA program, offered by York university is an exact choice for me. According to the faculty website, there are many professors maintaining a research interest on this subject (Probability and Stochastic processes), specially professor Hyejin Ku, working on option pricing by weakening or removing some assumptions made by Black-Scholes model. And the probability stream required courses fits well with my background. Moreover, the offering of Financial Engineering Diploma a cooperation with Schulich School of Business, not only provide me with an opportunity to get to know more about the industries but also a well-rounded career. As a result, the whole program strengthens students in both theoretical and industrial aspects of Financial Mathematics. There are two reasons why I am applying for MA. First, I’m not that professional in research since my master is non-thesis. In addition, it only takes one year so, I can start my PHD much faster.
  21. Anyone applied to PhD in Stats program at UBC or SFU to start in Fall 2019? The application deadline has passed, so I am assuming that they are reviewing the applications at the moment.

    Is Age An Issue?

    Hello, I am finishing my bachelor's a year early and I have a late birthday, so I'm only 20 years old, and will be 20 during interviews. Do you think program directors of programs based around people (counseling/social work, etc.) would take my age as a negative or am I over thinking? Thanks
