  1. Hi, I'm applying to PhD programs this fall 2020, both Biology and Neuroscience programs. After reading through the forums, I realize now that I may not be a very competitive applicant, so am thinking maybe a MS in Bio or Neuro may be the better option for me and then afterwards applying for a PhD. I didn't end up with a very good GPA, I could write about what happened but also don't want to sound like one of "those kids". Once I graduated, I really, really tried to not let my GPA bring me down, so I took some time off and went straight into research. My stats: School: UC Irvine
  2. 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
  3. Hi all! I will be applying for Fall 2021 to MS Statistics programs in US and canada. I am however not from a math or stats background. I wanted to know what schools I should be targeting and what are my chances of getting into the best programs like Stanford,Harvard(Biostat), Chicago etc. Undegrad Institution : University of Delhi (tier 2 college) Major : Economics GPA : 7.12/10 (3.6 US equivalent) Releveant Courses : Math/Statistics : Math Econ I (7) ,Math Econ II (8) , Statistics (7), Introductory Econometrics (8), Applied Econometrics (10) All grades
  4. This is my first post to this site and I'm relatively new to the whole process. I'm graduating this coming may with a BS in Applied Mathematics and a Minor in Business Administration. My GPA was a 3.6, GRE scores are Q : 168 V : 153 AWA : 5. I have applied for programs at University of Denver, Depaul, UChicago, Columbia Data Science Institute, and USF and I'm working on several more. I've gotten into USF, Denver (which i don't plan on attending) and Depaul, I've interviewed with Columbia last Wednesday but I'm aware it may take another week or so to get a decision. I was a research assistant a
  5. I am currently researching for any possible MS programs to apply. I know it's a bit late, but I was having quite a struggle doing this and it took me quite some time (and procrastination) to this point. Now I basically have a touch on what I am looking for, but it is still ideas instead of concrete programs. This is where I am still extremely in need of suggestions. I was mostly focused on positive psych and social psych in my undergrad days. After doing my graduate thesis, it turned out application of theories attracted me more than developing theories. So I am thinking about behavioura
  6. Those going through the application process for the California State University graduate programs at whatever campus, this is a place to share progress and ask questions. If we work together and support eachother we each stand a greater chance of success in admission to the CSU of choice. Please include your stats when pertinent.
  7. I noticed there's usually one WAITLIST thread every year. This is where you can post about schools that you are waiting to hear back from. Consequently, if you are holding multiple offers and would like to get opinions, you can post here as well!
  8. Hi everyone! I decided to create a thread for the peeps applying for school psychology programs for Fall 2019! What schools are you applying to? Are you going for an EdS or PhD program? How did you pick your programs? In general, how is the whole process going for you all? I hope I can get people to add on to this because it would be nice to have people to relate to haha. I am personally applying for PhD programs. My finalized list (so far) includes: Northern Arizona University, University of Memphis, University of Washington, and University of Virginia. I am excited to hear about ev
  9. Hey, Was just wondering if anyone could offer any advice as to what kind of questions an applicant can expect if offered an interview. Haven't been offered one yet, but figured it would be best to prepare sooner rather than later. Not entirely sure how to go about it, tho.
  10. Hello, it appears that most people on this forum are pursuing MSWs but does anyone here is pursuing a Ph.D. in social work in Canada (or want to apply to Ph.D. programs in social work)?
  11. Hey guys, I received an invitation this morning for an interview at Cal State Fullerton next week and I just wanted to know some of the questions that they ask so I can prepare! Anything helps!! Thank you
  12. Hello all! I'm looking for fellow Quantitative Psychology PhD applicants (so what- like 30 people :D). I thought it would be cool to make a thread and maybe get in contact with some other people going through a similar application process. Personally I am in a Master's program right now surrounded by Clinical Psychology applicants. There must be someone out there like me! Current quantitative psychology people are welcome to drop by and impart their wisdom as well. EDIT: Found a thread for this year. There must be some out there somewhere!
  13. Hi! I'm going to be a senior undergrad and was wondering how competitive of an applicant I am to get into a (behavioral) Neuroscience PhD program. I was also wondering what I should do to improve my application. Some stats: Major: Dual- Psychology (honors) and Neuroscience Minor: Fine Arts Overall GPA: 3.6 (will rise to about 3.65 by graduation) In-Majors GPA: 3.75 Research: 3.5 years Grants: URA (undergraduate research award) GRE (not taken yet...assuming I score average) Extra Curricular Activities: Biology Tutor (1 semester), Resident Assistant (RA) (1 year) Pre
  14. So I could not find any other active forums about CSUB which is why I'm making this one. Has anyone applied to CSUB? If so have you heard anything back yet? I applied the 1st week of December via email. Still waiting on a response...
  15. Hello people, I discovered this book a few months ago, just wanted to share it with you in case you did not know about it already. https://www.amazon.com/Social-Graduate-School-Applicants-Handbook/dp/1929109148
  16. Hey all, so I know it's hard to quantify an application because it really changes from program to program based on your "fit", but I was wondering if my application seems promising upon quick glance? I am finding some conflicting info on the selectivity of the programs I applied to and am hoping that I seem like a promising candidate. I had some health issues sophomore year and had to drop an elective class one trimester (still finished that trimester on the Dean's List, though) and I know my quantitative GRE score is quite average, but I'm hoping the amount of research experience and strong L
  17. This is my first go at this. Because I timed myself, it may be rough (and maybe easier for you to grade). I understand I may need more length to this, but I am more interested in critiques on having clearly addressed the instructions and the creativity in persuading the audience. Here is a scoring guide to help: https://www.ets.org/gre/revised_general/prepare/analytical_writing/issue/scoring_guide Everything else is below. Thank you in advance! Prompt: The best way to teach is to praise positive actions and ignore negative ones. Write a response in which you discuss the e
  18. So, this was my first go at it, so it'll probably be easy for you to grade. Having said that, I know I need to work on getting more length within the 30 minute time frame. I'm more interested what you think about how fluid the essay is and what assumptions you think I missed or also could have focused on. Also, here is some grading criteria that might help:https://www.ets.org/gre/revised_general/prepare/analytical_writing/argument/scoring_guide. Everything else is here below. Thank you in advance! The prompt: The council of Maple County, concerned about the county's becoming overdeve
  19. Those applying for Masters degree programs for MFT Marriage and Family Therapy in the CSU system, whichever school, please update your progress in this thread. If we work together and support eachother we each stand a greater chance of admission to the CSU of choice. Please indicate your stats when pertinent.
  20. Hello! I'm applying for graduate school starting in Fall 2017. My current GPA is a 3.3, and although I haven't taken the GRE yet I've been studying and plan to take it within the next month so I can have time to study more and make sure my scores are ready to send to schools in December if needed. I tend to perform well on standardized tests though, so I'm reasonably confident in my ability to perform well. I've also had 2.5 years of research experience from two different labs. Both were long term, but my original PI moved to a different university so I went to a different lab with a real
  21. Please help! I am currently trying to decide between an MSW program at either CSUN or SDSU. There are a lot of pros and cons to both, but I am interested to see what those here on the forum could tell me about these programs. What should I be placing most emphasis on when deciding? What are the reputations for these schools? How are both schools in regards to preparing students for licensing? CSUN: Pros: close to home (could potentially save money by living at home); an urban generalist approach (will maybe give me a more well-rounded experience); capstone project in final yea
  22. Hi everyone! I am looking for a master specialized in sustainable architecture. I found out several ones but these didnt suit what I need: the carrying out of architectural projects and the study of environmentally-friendly construction methods. I would be quite grateful if you could recommend me some interesting university in the US which offers this kind of master. Thank you!!
  23. Just hoping to get some feedback from current students and applicants. I graduated with a BS (bio major) in 2010 and since have been working full time while "figuring out" what I want to do next. I've always been an inquisitive person and have been working in a lab environment for over 4 years now, one of which was spent at the NIH. I am currently in the process of applying to grad school (interdisciplinary bio PhD programs), and feel that I have a strong application, but my heart still isn't set on it. A PhD just seems like such a long, grueling ordeal from all of the horror stories that
