  1. I am applying for my MFA in creative writing. my grades are great and i've been told I have a strong and impressive portfolio but gaining entrance to a creative writing MFA program is very difficult, competitive, relative, and highly selective so I am not a shoo-in anywhere. For one of my graduate applications I submitted the application but put off submitting the fee and then my application status said my fee was waived but there was no explanation. is this normal? does it mean anything? another school I applied to sent me a hand written letter saying they are "thrilled" I submitted my application. Is this normal? does it mean anything? thanks
  2. Hello people! I am a 2018 ChemE grad from Nigeria and I'm applying to ChemE PhD programs in the US. I graduated from a top 5 Nigerian institution where I completed senior research and design projects. I was wondering if these would be sufficient research experience for PhD programs given that American and Asian students have more research experiences. My stats are: GPA--4.82/5(roughly a 3.87/4) GRE-- 160Q, 162V, 4.5 My research interests include-- fuel/PV cells, electrochemistry and batteries, CO2 conversion, and air pollution Other info-- I have LORs from my research Supervisor, design Supervisor and a senior lecturer from my department which I believe are all very positive. I was also ranked 2nd in my class. I have applied to the following Universities: University of Michigan Purdue University of Colorado boulder University of Notre dame Rensselaer polytechnic institute University of Iowa Stevens institute of technology I appreciate your comments and suggestions! Thank you

  4. My girlfriend and I will be applying to French PHD programs in the NY area (Rutgers, Colombia, Princeton, NYU, UPenn) as well as in the southeast (University of Virginia, Duke) and several universities in Canada (Université de Montréal and McGill). I’m also interested, but have not yet check out, universities in California such as UCLA, Stanford, or Yale. (For the latter, I read that PHD applicants must have a year of teaching experience and this is not my case.) We are both currently in masters of comparative at Paris 3 (Sorbonne Nouvelle). For my part, l have been a resident in France for 4 yrs, having passed the “concours d’enseignement” or the CAPES and taught as a full time English language teacher for 2 years. My companion also had a stint as a highschool teacher here, but she is a native French speaker. My research interests are mainly in francophone literature and literature and economy. Hers are primarily in trauma studies. Would anybody have any information about the universities I mentioned, any helpful advice on the application process or other universities ? Thank you all advance - I signed up b/c I found a similar thread for the 2019 session and everybody seemed supportive and knowledgeable!
  5. Hello, I’m an applicant from the UK who’s applying to Philosophy PhD programs in the US starting September 2020. I recently took the GRE and got a verbal score of 166 (97th percentile) and a quant score of 156 (60th percentile). There seems to be so much conflicting information about how important GRE scores are and, as an international applicant, it can all be very confusing. Do you think that my mediocre quant score will be a hindrance to getting into any (or certain top) PhD programs in the states? Other relevant background info to do with my application: I have a BA and an MPhil in Philosophy. I got my BA from a Russell Group University (top 25 or so in the UK) and my MPhil from an ancient University (top 2 in the UK). I have what I think is equivalent to a 4.0 GPA for my BA and a 3.8 GPA for my MPhil (although the conversion for the MPhil is quite difficult and a rough approximation). I’m expecting very promising letters of recommendation. Any clarificatory information and/or advice would be appreciated!
  6. I am a 4th year English student currently applying to MA and PhD programs. On some applications, they ask "Have you ever been expelled, dismissed, suspended, placed on probation, or otherwise subject to disciplinary sanction by any school, college, or university?" I was suspended from high school for a day due to a situation where I slapped a boy who had been harassing me. Should I include this information? They ask for incidents in "any school," but a singular event that happened over eight years ago seems trivial. There was no arrest, just a single day of suspension. I had no trouble whatsoever in college. Is this information still relevant? How heavily will it impact my chances of admission?
  7. Hey guys ! I’m currently taking prerequisites for grad school which I have been getting straight Bs in. Mostly high bs. I know that many of these programs accept higher GPAs on average and don’t know what to do. I’m not a great test taker, but everything I learn that’s applicable at my job I excel at. I work at a pediatric company as a child Development Specialist & a registered behavioral tech. I also work with SLPs providing support with speech goals & help with feeding goals as well. Will this experience help to balance out my low GPA & possibly low GRE score ? I know speech is highly competitive. If anyone has any advice, or similar experiences please let me know ! I’m beginning to stress as I apply to grad schools this fall ! HELP !
  8. Hi! Growing up I have had multiple chronic illnesses that have shaped my life. In recent years I have been able to be a full time college student without the illnesses getting in the way. After getting my PhD I want to work with children with chronic illness and other health issues. Some mentors have told me to include my health history in my personal statement while others have warned me to avoid it at all cost. Since it directly relates to my research interest and future career goals, should I include my medical history in my application? Thanks!
  9. Hi everyone, this is my first-time post on GradCafe. I was wondering if anyone has any recommendations/comments on my application case. My Background international student graduated from a state-university with a bachelor degree in biology in 3 years, GPA 3.17 did 1-year research (without an independent projects) in neuroscience, did not like it graduated from an ivy-league with a master degree in biotechnology, GPA 3.24 (btw, didn’t worth to do a master in biotech) did 1-year research with an individual project in developmental biology during the graduate study, loved it working in an immunology based biotech company for almost two years, loved this field My Prep personal statement: done, very research-dense with a clear career goal, did not explain why my gpa is low recommendation letter: I can guarantee one of them will be strong with a big name, one will be generic with a big name GRE: the program doesn’t require GRE anymore, I did mine 5 years ago, and it’s 170/170, 154/170, happy to retake it if it’s really important. school choices: 4 tops ranking from 5-15, 4 safe schools ranking from 30-80 I decided to pursue a PhD degree in immunology at the beginning of this year because I’d like to learn more in this fascinating field and eventually lead my own projects in either academia or industry. I think immunology is a field that combines basic research and a lot of clinical applications, which is very promising. My questions are: Should I aim lower? Any chances for a fellowship offer? What can i do to build a stronger case before application? Thanks in advance for your help!
  10. Hello all! I am applying to Clinical Psychology Ph.D. programs and I have a question about experiment descriptions for my research and subject experience. I was a research subject first, then I was a research assistant for the same study. I have separated my CV into research experience and volunteer experience. I explained the experiment in each section. Is it redundant to explain the same experiment twice, in two different sections if the description is the same? Or is it better to name the experiment in the first description and just list the name when I refer to it later in my CV, removing the repeated description? I don't want to waste their time, but I don't want to seem as though I wasn't thorough. Thank you!
  11. I thought I would start a thread for us that applied to developmental psych programs! I thought this would be a good space to air our stress and see what invites have been sent out! I applied to the following schools and so far got an invite to UCLA for their interview/campus visit weekend: UCLA (invite to interview weekend) Temple University (pending) NYU (pending) Northwestern (pending - Human Development and Social Policy) Where else have people heard :)? Sending good vibes and luck!
  12. Hi guys, For those of you struggling with GRE, especially GRE math, I am holding a meetup event this Sunday to talk about great tips and advice about GRE math test with one-to-one consultation. I am currently a graduate student at Columbia University. I took GRE twice last year and scored 100% on math, which has definitely helped me to get accepted into Columbia University. Many of my friends asked me tips - I have used Magoosh but I made my own problem book and I keep refreshing them and practice looking for keywords. With the right strategy and preparation, I believe everyone can score very high in GRE and especially in math. This Sunday I'm going to talk about how I prepared for GRE, within a short period of time, that would work for people even with little math background. If you're around in New York, please come by, it's for free. If not, you can also contact me or further help at daitong@gooroo.com Please see my Craigslist post for further informaiton at http://newyork.craigslist.org/mnh/lss/5722106731.html Good luck! Daitong
