  1. Background - College: B.A. Economics GPA: 2.7 A huge part of the low GPA is because of depression in college. I began isolating myself a lot and because of the stigma of mental health in my community I was reluctant to seek help. When I did I was too scared to go back after 1 appointment. I have since taken several courses post under grad (which I aced ) and currently taking graduate level courses and sought therapy. I have learned so much about myself and how to balance work, school and my social relationships. Work Experience: Total of about 3.5 years in Accounting
  2. Hello! I'm currently a rising sophomore with a tentative goal to do graduate studies in Statistics or Data Science. I was wondering what pure/applied math or stats upper division courses you would recommend that would give me a firm foundation? Here is the math course browser: https://www.ucsd.edu/catalog/courses/MATH.html I was thinking about taking one of the Algebra classes with Intro to Numerical Analysis, but I am not sure. Thanks in advance!
  3. Hi! I know this forum is for graduates but I am trying to get advice on what supplies I might need to invest in and what I will need to do to make myself stand out when I am applying for graduate school. I am completing my undergraduate degree in Speech and Hearing Sciences online through Arizona State University Online and would love any advice on items I might buy to help me learn since I will not have an in-person class experience or any words of advice! Since I am also online I was hoping for advice on suggestions to help make connections with professors that I will never see face to
  4. Hi everyone, I hope you're staying sane during the quarantine. I am nearing the end of my 4th year in my PhD program in Biology. Up until about a month ago I thought I would be able to graduate at the end of my 5th year, but my advisers very suddenly decided they wanted me to do more experiments. Meanwhile some of my committee members have emphasized that I should stop doing research and just write everything up and try to graduate. I very much side with them. Unfortunately, I feel pretty powerless against my advisers and they do not seem to understand why someone would want to try to graduate
  5. My dream graduate school is Columbia's English and Comparative Literature program, mainly because their courses align with my research interests, and, from what I understand, they allow a wide range for exploration to those interested in comparing literature and other media forms. My grades, I believe, are fine. However, the school feels very out of reach because of my GRE scores. The last two times (yes, twice) I took the test I pulled average in everything except math (just barely met the average on that subject with 0 improvements the next time I tested). I have now been studying
  6. Hi everyone this is a long post so I apologize in advance for the extensive reading. I’m asking this question because as of right now I feel somewhat helpless and desperate. I’m a psychology student in the faculty of science at the University of Alberta. I’m going into my fourth year but have applied for an honours program for my fourth and fifth year that would allow me to be eligible to apply to clinical psych programs. I had a horrible first year as a “pre-business student” (2.0 gpa). I had a multitude of personal issues going on at the time and struggled. I realize there’
  7. I am looking for advice from anyone who has tried/succeeded in negotiating your aid package. I would appreciate strategies and feedback from anyone who has done this, regardless of their program. However, my admission is to DU Korbel for IDEV. I received scholarships for 39% of tuition and an offer for an hourly "aide" position.
  8. Hi Everyone! I am currently finishing up my MPH at the University of Rochester and am looking at applied medical anthropology programs and programs that might have a great interest in substance abuse/domestic violence? Does anyone have any suggestions of what schools to look at? My Profile is: Masters GPA 3.9 Undergrad GPA's 3.2 (public comm degree) 3.7 (anthro degree went back to school) GRE scores: I am retaking them! I should have one or two publications by the end of my program coming up soon and I have TA experience. Really just looking for general information abo
  9. Hi all. What a stressful time of year! I have high scores, a near-perfect GPA, and glowing letters of rec, several posters, and an in-progress paper, so a few months ago I thought I had a pretty good shot. After spending more time on this website, I think I might have been very mistaken. I don't have a psychology degree. My degree is in Communication Sciences & Disorders (aka speech-language pathology), and I have only worked with PIs and faculty within that world. In undergrad, I volunteered in an autism lab, run by an SLP with a large background in neuroscience. I presented my
  10. Hello all! I am graduating from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln this December with a 3.88 for my major GPA and 3.7 overall and I am currently in the process of applying to graduate school. I didn't do too hot on the first round of the GRE with a 150 verbal, 148 quant, and 3.5 writing. I have done a year of research in the field as well as received three letters of rec from two professors and my research mentor. Basically, I am the average student when it comes to applying to graduate school. I love the field and I am excited to get started in the field, but I am worried I'm a little t
  11. I would greatly appreciate some advice/input here. I'm applying to a few clinical psychology PhD programs this season and all of them have professors who are accepting students for fall 2018 listed on their websites. When I was initially writing my email drafts to POIs a few weeks back, only one of the universities' websites had this information listed and the other universities have since updated their websites with this info. I got a bit busy with working on a publication and my master's thesis in that meantime, so I am just now revisiting my email drafts and application materials. How
  12. Hello everyone, I am kind of new here. I am junior studying PSC at a US college. I want to go to grad school and study Authoritarianism-Public Opinion- Voter Behavior mainly. I started preparing for my application so I have a couple of questions for you. 1. Although I am in a good range in Q (163-166) , my verbal is not that good (around 153-154). I will do my best to improve it until I take the test this summer but I don't know how hard I should study for it. Do you think having a lower score on Verbal would hurt my chances a lot given that I am an international student?
  13. Hi All, I'm in the process of applying to DePaul University's M.A. in International Studies program for Fall Quarter. Right now, I'm debating on my writing sample; the maximum length that I can submit is 8 pages from my undergraduate thesis. I've decided to select the analysis section of my paper, roughly around 5 pages, I'm wondering how much "background" on my research I should give prior to the actual analysis portion. I know that quantity doesn't always trump quality, but for some reason I feel weird not using all of the 8 pages allowed. What are your thoughts on this? DePaul is my to
