  1. Hello world! Has anyone done the video response as part of SIPA's admissions package? I know it's being implemented as of 2017 application cycle, so I am wondering if there are any Spring 2017 candidates that have already done it. Helpful tips, feedback, etc. would be much appreciated!
  2. I had an underwhelming GPA in a difficult major from a top 10 but underrated public research university. I'm also in my late 30s - I've been thinking of grad/professional school for a long time, but I know it will be very challenging, and may not be worth it.For a while now, I'm been thinking of applying to the M.A. in Asian Studies at UC Berkeley and the M.A. in Asia Pacific Studies at University of San Francisco. I'd much prefer Asian American Studies, but very few schools offer an M.A. in that - the closest one seems to be UCLA, and I'd like to stay local and commute to school. There's an M
  3. How is admission for Masters in HCI and Design in top US universities(UW, GTech, UCB, CMU? I'm an engineering graduate, working in the technology design support role for 3 years and interested in UX. I have done publications layout design and visual communication design courses.
  4. Hi all, I've been unable to find what the difference is between a Statement of Purpose (SOP) and a Statement of Interest / Statement of Research Interest. I've seen a lot on this forum re: SOPs but does anyone have any advice on writing a standout Statement of Interest? The program I am applying for is requesting a Statement of Interest but does not specify any further than a character limit. Thanks in advance!
  5. I am a recent graduate from Rutgers University - New Brunswick who majored in Cognitive Science (neuroscience track) and double minored in philosophy and Korean studies. I'm looking to apply to Cognitive Psychology/Cognitive Neuroscience/Behavioral Neuroscience Ph.D. programs this upcoming cycle (I've included a list of the schools I'm looking at, as well as their programs). Overall GPA: 3.52 Major GPA: 3.76 (should I include this in my CV?) GRE: 160 V, 158 Q (still haven't taken it yet but hoping to get a 320-325 when I do). Research Experience: Will amount to about 1.5
  6. I'm going to graduate with my BS in Aerospace Engineering next spring. Due to a variety of factors, I have decided to pursue graduate-level education, and I would like the opportunity to do it in CS, as that is where my interests have lied for roughly a little more than the second half of my bachelor's degree. I'm well aware that a transition from AE to CS is unorthodox, and I'm concerned that many good programs (both at prestigious and not so prestigious universities) will think that I'm unqualified. Does anyone who has either made the transition (or a similar one!) themselves or know so
  7. Looking for some advice/guidance on my profile for applying Ph.D. in Physics in Fall 2021. I plan to take the Physics GRE in September, but I am worried that it will not be able to be administered due to COVID . . . Has anyone heard about how programs are planning for this contingency?

  9. Hello! I was a Political Science/Theology major for my B.A. I graduated from a liberal arts college with a 3.84. I got decent GRE scores: 163 verbal 153 quant. I have been wanting to make a career transition into art history, and I am well-studied in the subject for someone who has only done independent study. I think I might like to pursue Ph.D. level work in Art History, so I want to do my M.A. somewhere reputable. Does it seem unlikely I'd be admitted to a reputable MA (like Williams) without doing some undergrad or community college art history course work first? Also any thought
  10. Has anyone heard back from the new MSc Psychotherapy program at McMaster? I applied at the end of feb and haven't heard back yet. I emailed them about it and they said they hope to get back to their applicants soon. I imagine their admissions process is being impacted by the pandemic like everyone else, but I guess I'm just having trouble dealing with the uncertainty. Has anyone who applied to MSc psychotherapy heard anything back yet?
  11. 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
  12. Hey all! I haven’t seen a thread like this that is specific to Canada so thought I’d start one. I’ve applied to York, McMaster and UofT for 2020 admission to an MA in polisci. I hope this is an okay number of apps, I know some do a lot more. I’ve also got a few questions if anybody would be able to answer! How are the programs/depts at these unis, how do they compare to each other? York entices me due to it’s supposed left-wing nature but UofT is obviously much more prestigious. I’m unsure as to the quality of the specific programs, I find it’s hard to find info on thi
  13. Hi, I only recently started looking into Biostats PhD programs and was hoping to get a little more clarity on the strength of my profile. Undergrad Institution: Northwestern Major: Mathematics (with departmental honors) and Statistics Type of Student: Domestic white male GPA: 3.65 GRE: Still studying but just assume V: 165+ and Q: 165+ since that's how I'm scoring on practice tests. Related Math Courses: Calculus 1/2 (B+, B), Linear Algebra (B+), Optimization (B), Probability and Stochastic Processes Sequence (A-, A, A-), Combinatorics and Discrete Math (A), Gra
  14. Hi all, I'm graduating from a MFA program in Architectural History next year (spring 2021) and have been seriously considering applying to PhD history programs, most likely for admission in fall 2021. I'm an older student (late 30s) and my career has been focused in architectural history up to this point. I love research and writing, and have done a significant amount of it in my career, but I've lost my interest in the built environment. I've always been an amateur social and cultural historian and want to focus on that in a professional capacity. It seems that going on for my PhD is a m
  15. I had a hard semester which resulted in my being in the hospital for three months. This resulted in 2 Ws and an F in a one-credit history course. I am still graduating with three degrees and a minor, general studies honors, and in the ballpark of 3.5 or higher GPAs in all three degrees. I am active in my community and know I can get good letters of recommendation. Is there still a chance of my getting into a good MDiv program? Should I re-do the course I got an F in? I would still have to explain the semester it was in, so is it worth it?
  16. I am applying to the MSW program at U of Toronto this year or the September 2021 intake. In particular the 2 year program as I do not have a BSW. The admission requirements state that you need a minimum B+ in your final year, however transcripts are to be sent in by November. I contacted the department and it seems that the admissions will be based last year's grades. Last year I had a health crisis in my fourth year and had to drop some courses. I got to A's, but also a C and a D+. I did well before that year. Anyways, I am doing a fifth year with full course load. I am worried about my poss

  18. I received word on Tuesday from the University of Wisconsin at Madison that my application to their Communication Arts - Media and Cultural Studies PhD was rejected. This was disappointing (I ate a pizza and watched The Flash in my darkened room after work, which I'd have done anyway, but that's not the point) but wasn't a huge surprise to me for a few reasons. The first reason was that their MCS division had been shrunk significantly in the previous years and only had about half of the spots available of the next smallest program. This is a trend in Wisconsin (and elsewhere) as higher educati
  19. Hello, I went through the DrPH 2019 thread and I found it quite informative. I will be applying for DrPH in Fall 2020 and thought to open this forum so others who will also be applying can join in. Looking forward to connecting to the others interested in this program.
  20. Hi, first of all pardon me for anypresumptuous remarks. I am trying to understand the process for graduate school admission. Will an undergraduate student be in disadvantage with above-average/good (not extraordinary) credentials to get into Caltech, MIT, or Stanford for Grad school, if he/she completes Bachelor's from a school that's Top<10 in aerospace-ranking(usnews) for Undergraduate and Graduate, but a Top<=30 in overall-engineering graduate school ranking, and 110 in National College ranking by UsNews? I know that a high GPA, an internship/research experience here and there
  21. Hi everyone! I noticed that threads like this don't include information about whether or not people were accepted, waitlisted, and/or rejected. If you applied during any year before 2020 and have results, please post below. 😀 I noticed math/physics have similar threads which DO include acceptance and rejection results from people. Wanted to start something similar for biology! Undergrad Institution: (School or type of school, such as big state, lib arts, ivy, technical, foreign (what country?)...

  22. Hey everyone! I have to select from UT Dallas and CU Boulder for an MS in Electrical Engineering program for Fall 2020. I'm interested in Analog/RFIC design research. I plan on doing a thesis during my MS, but not sure if I'll continue with a Ph.D. right after. I also have other admits from UFL and Virginia Tech(M.Engg in Comp Engg) and I'm expecting to get into ASU as well. CU Boulder An established good-ranking program with well-known faculty members like Zoya Popovic, Dejan Filipovic and Dragan Maksimovic. Potential thesis advisors: Taylor Barton, Zoya Popovic for RF Power
  23. Hey Guys, I was planning on the April 2020 intake. I had applied to 5 - 7 colleges for the same. Half of the colleges are either closed or not taking admissions because of the current pandemic situation. As a my entire process got postponed. Now i have a lot of time on my hands, so i decided to make use of it in some productive way. With that in mind, i started to rework on my Statement of Purpose. I had found it hard to make one earlier too and with no good samples for reference it was quiet a lengthy process. But this time around, after going through many many sample SOP's i found a pre
  24. Hey! I'm currently a 4th year undergrad majoring in statistics at UC Berkeley. Right now, my plan is to apply for a master's in statistics or data science within the next 2-4 years, as I'm planning on doing data science work for at least a year before applying. My question, though, has to do with my grades this semester--in particular, due to the coronavirus, my school has given us the option to either take our classes pass/fail or we can request a letter grade. They are pushing hard for us to do pass/fail, but I'm not sure this is the best option for someone like me who hopes to go to grad sc
  25. Has anyone heard from UAlbany about Clinical Psychology PhD admissions? I interviewed Feb 22nd at interview weekend and I REALLY want to attend. I recently emailed my potential PI to ask for an update (amid COVID-19 and such) and learned that I am on the waitlist with a couple people ahead of me, so they cant offer me admission yet. Does anyone know how the admissions process works at this school: It sounds like I'm not on a waitlist specific to my PI, but instead a program-wide waitlist...? I've been told they usually admit 6-7 people, any idea how my chances look?
