  1. Hi everyone! I'm curious to know if any Americans on here have decided to pursue doctoral studies in clinical psychology in the UK. If so, I'd love to hear more about your story (Were you able to practice in the UK afterward? Did you decide to go back to the US to practice instead? Did you have issues with either of those two routes work eligibility-wise? Etc.). Since this tends to be more of a unique case, "Americans hoping to study/practice clinical psychology in the UK" turns up some pretty murky Internet search results, so I'd love some insight. ?
  2. Hi all! I'm hoping to get some help here. I'm a first year masters student and I've begun looking into PhD programs to apply once I graduate. I know this might be somewhat early seeing as I'm not even close to finishing my degree yet, but I know that I'll have to apply by this time next year, so I might as well get a head start! My area of interest is 20th century American literature with an emphasis in feminist and ecocriticial analysis. I'm really interested/specialty in archival work. I've worked closely with texts that have been "forgotten" especially those written by wom
  3. Hello everyone, I've been lurking this forum throughout this past application cycle, and it's truly proved incredibly helpful as I applied. All of you have different backgrounds and perspectives, and I thought it would be helpful to hear from the people who probably went through or are going through the same thing as me. I applied to a few IR programs, and I'm waiting to hear back from a few more. But as of right now I am in between American SIS and Syracuse Maxwell, both from which I have received acceptances. I applied to Maxwell's IR program, and to SIS' International Peace and Co
  4. Hello there, so I am applying for Fall 2018 admission to both the MPhil in American History at Cambridge as well as the MSt in US History at Oxford. I come from a Top 5 US institution with a very high GPA, won a thesis prize/departmental honors in history. I decided to apply to Oxbridge about a month ago as I have been really on the fence about pursuing a PhD in history (given the uncertainty and the insecurity of the job market for PhD candidates) but thought it would be worthwhile to do a year's worth of graduate study to confirm for myself if I want to pursue further studies. I have a
  5. Hi all: help needed. I've been accepted to a few schools and, unfortunately, have not received any merit aid worth mentioning. Considering that I would like to work in International Development, does anyone have any advice for pros and cons of each school? I'm leaning towards Maxwell, but am honestly very conflicted.
  6. Hey guys! So I've been admitted to Georgetown's MPP program, among others, so I'm sort of in the decision-making process right now. I was wondering if anyone here had a better feel for how well the evening program fits with a full time, especially one in and around Capitol Hill? I know that Georgetown is a pain to get to, but I'd hate for that to be the reason it isn't doable. Are classes late enough that this is not an issue? Any help would be appreciated! Thanks.
  7. What are some of the stronger programs for American Intellectual History? Also, what is typically expected on a strong US History applicants CV? Thanks everyone!
  8. I have gotten into three schools so far for public policy: Georgetown, University of Maryland, and American. All these school's rankings are similar so I am having a hard time distinguishing between them (they are also all in DC) except for the price tag. Tuition follows: Georgetown- $50,000/yr (have not been notified of funding) American- $30,000/yr (received $10,000 each year) Maryland- $45,000 (have not been notified of funding) What do you think is the best option?
  9. Is anyone here considering American University for the MPP program?
  10. What does an American need grade wise to get into European universities(nothing big like cambridge, ecole, or delft), I want to go into business(international business, management, etc.). what would I need for AP scores, SAT/ACT, normal class credits, and languages? I am in my sophomore year, taking Algebra 2 and AP European History.
  11. This is my first year in my M.A. program and I was wondering if I could get some advice about conferences. My university will only fund one conference a year, so I really want to make them count. I need my CV to look as impressive as possible for Ph.D. applications in two years (an anxiety I'm sure we all feel/ have felt). I'm on a fellowship my first year, so I have plenty of time to create a work from scratch, I'm just not sure which conferences to look into. I'm hoping to attend one in the Spring Semester. My focus is American lit, 19th century to modern day (I know, too br
  12. Hey! I'm a Canadian student looking at applying to American graduate programs for school psychology. In Canada, pretty much all grad schools calculate your GPA based on your last 60 credits. I was wondering if American grad schools were that way as well? Only a few websites specify and all the ones I've seen say that they do but I guess I was wondering if that was the standard. Thanks in advance!
  13. Figured I'd start a thread for American. Applying for the MA in International Affairs (Global Government, Politics, and Security), but also torn between that and IPCR. There isn't a spot in the application for a Statement of Purpose... do we not have to write one for consideration to American SIS?
  14. Hey everyone, I'm applying straight out of undergrad for a masters in IR/IA. I'm applying to several programs, but my goal is to wind up in DC and my top three choices are JHU's SAIS, GW's Elliott School, and AU's SIS. My field of focus would be European/Eurasian studies, and while SAIS has the biggest name it's econ focus scares me a bit which is why I think GW and AU might be better fits (specifically AU because I could do a concentration in identity, ideology, and nationalism, which is what I'm writing a thesis on). I'm going to post some of my stats and if any of you could give you
  15. As a Canadian, I am applying to both Canadian and American universities for my PhD in English. I am also completely devastated by the American election results. The main reason I applied to American schools and strongly considered them over Canadian schools is because I have heard time and time again about how degrees from the top American universities give people a much higher chance to get a tenure-track job afterwards compared to even the highest ranking Canadian schools (i.e. the University of Toronto, the University of Alberta, etc.). I honestly feel very strongly opposed to going to an A
  16. Hello. I am currently pursuing a degree in biology here in the U.S. and have a cumulative GPA of 3.7 (this is my last year). I have been looking at various MSc degrees abroad (e.g. Germany, Belgium, Austria, Norway, and Russia). I'm still trying to figure out which program to pursue. I want to focus on water resources, oceanography, limnology, fisheries, marine science/bio, environmental engineering, or something along those lines. Right now I'm leaning towards Belgium, Austria, or Norway and spend a year in Russia before I begin my studies to teach English and learn Russian (I am fascinated w
  17. I applied to an MPP or MPA in the follogwing universities: American NYU GW Maryland Harvard Princeton UCLA But I still did not receive results, anybody has information?? Thanks
  18. I just got an email from American saying a decision has been made on my application and to log in. So I logged into the applynow spot but I don't know where the decision is... Someone tell me where to look. This is eluding me.
  19. It is almost decision time, and after reading everything related to all the schools I am considering I am still so confused and need help. I have narrowed my options to three schools, taking out Maryland and Evans because I am not going to get any money from them. That leaves Humphrey-MPP, La Follette-MPA, and American SPA-MPP. Background: I am from MN and plan to focus on social policy. Minneapolis is the best city for me- point for Humphrey, but the problem is that I know I would be fine (who knows, maybe better than fine) in both Madison and DC. DC of course has a million opportuni
  20. Hi all, I feel like this is one of the few places I can turn to for sound advice. My family and friends only know so much about this and as a result their opinion is often based on nothing concrete. Let me start by saying I feel very fortunate for being admitted to some great programs. With each acceptance, however, my ultimate decision continues to grow more difficult. There are so many factors that go into making the right decision; professors, career services, funding, location etc. My interests are in international development and I have been working in Africa for the past
  21. Wondering if anyone has applied to and/or heard from programs in political communication namely from George Washington (Media and Public Affairs) or American? Like most people here, I'm obsessively worried my stats aren't good enough . . .
  22. Hi all, I'm an MA-holding, humanities adjunct at a community college, and I was recently accepted to present a conference paper this spring. The conference is within driving distance (3-4 hours), but since my current department only offers travel funds to its tenure track faculty, I'm going to be left paying transport and lodging expenses myself. My question is this: do you happen to know of any other places I can look for funding? I will apply for grants from the conference itself, but I'm interested in whether or not you know of anywhere else -- NPOs, etc. Thanks for whatever help
