  1. Hello everyone! I saw posts from previous where people started a thread of where they are applying and created some camaraderie within the education circle. Where is everyone applying? Share results/thoughts/comments if you'd like. I have applied to the Education Policy Masters programs at American and Johns Hopkins.
  2. Hi everyone! So, I am hoping to attend graduate school in the Fall of 2022 and am currently in the process of getting my applications together. I have about two months left until I formally submit them and have been wondering what my chances are of getting admitted. Here are some of the basics of what I have/am working on, please let me know what you think, thank you!!! BA University: Graduated from the University of New Mexico in the Spring of 2020 Undergraduate Major/Degree: Majored in Sociology with a minor in Psychology Graduate GPA: 4.05 Program: PhD in Sociology Schools I am Applying to: University of New Mexico, University of Colorado Boulder, University of Washington, and Pennsylvania State University Interests: Sociology of health and medicine, sociology of human life course, statistics, data analysis GRE: V 155 / Q 160 / W 4.5 Work/Research Experience: - Since I majored in SOC for my undergrad I have taken a great deal of courses, and I have written a few research papers (for a grade of course). - I have a semester of research experience as I got to intern as the UNM's PRC (prevention research center) and helped with many projects, focused on qualitative data analysis and assisted with literature reviews. - I volunteered at a local crisis hotline since Fall 2018, although some may suggest it falls under more psychology based experience I believe it can relate to sociology in the sense that speaking about how one's environment heavily affects them and their mental health relates to the field. LoR: I already have two former professors who said that they would not only write letters of support but would also look over my personal statements and writing samples. The director of the hotline (where I volunteered) also said that she would write me one as well. The director where I interned previously said she would write one, but hasn't gotten back to me in a while. From speaking with each person, I believe that each letter will be positive. Personal Statements: Plan to work my butt off on these and will heavily research each university I plan on applying to, look into the faculty and their work and will add that into each statement with other reasons I hope to attend each individual college. Writing Samples: Have chosen two that I received an A on, and will severely edit and sharpen them. I will also have others go over and read them when I am finished. Concerns: Low GRE verbal score (although I am not planning to take it again as it is expensive and I hope to put forth more effort and energy into other aspects of my application, and if I don't get accepted this time around then I will retake it for the next time I hope to apply). I also have little research experience and no publications, any advice is greatly appreciated!!
  3. In short: I didn't do very well in undergrad (it was like a 2.9 I think, with the worst grades highly concentrated in my second year). I tried to make that better by applying to an MA program in philosophy, where I got a 3.96. I applied to PhD programs last cycle, and I was actually high on a few waitlists (e.g. UVA, Amherst,and I was actually first on the waitlist at Iowa), but I didn't get in (in at least two cases, I was explicitly told they had to drop their waitlist because of COVID). However, I did get into a second-tier law school, and decided to attend, thinking that if I couldn't get a PhD in philosophy I could be a lawyer and/or try again next cycle. So I figured I could bide my time in law school, fix up my application, and reapply . I got a lot of very helpful advice on my application from committee insiders, and I decided to try again this time. Unfortunately, something I never expected happened: I got destroyed in law school. Like, the worst grades I have ever gotten in anything ever I got in law school. I'm in my second semester, and I'm considering dropping out because I'm afraid of what my final transcript is going to look like. My first semester was one B+ and the rest Cs and C-s. This is literally the worst I've ever done in anything. I studied hard, I genuinely tried to do well, but I just got eviscerated. I'm now terrified that I've just completely screwed up my chances of ever getting into a PhD because I made a really stupid decision to go to law school, and I'm frustrated and angry at myself both for not being better at law than I am, and for making the foolish decision to go to law school in the first place. I'm sitting here, waiting on 15 applications (putting special hope on those that I sent in before I got my first semester grades, terrified that this one decision to go to law school may have cost me any future opportunity at getting into a PhD program. How do committees look at stuff like this?
  4. 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 Major: Cognitive Psychology (mix of biology and psychology) GPA: 2.94 (last year of college managed to improve greatly with a 3.6) Major GPA: 3.6 Research experience: 3 years (1 year in a Public Health lab at UCI, 1 year behavioral neuroscience at UC Berkeley, and 1 year at UCSF neurodegenerative diseases) Publishing: 3rd authorship, but it's Public Health related. LOR: 2 from UCSF, 1 from UCI Other: over 100 hours of hospital volunteering, was a medical scribe for neurology at UCSF as well. I originally intended to go to medical school, but really fell in love with being in a lab setting within neuro, so changed my future plans. I guess my questions are - Do you guys think I have a chance with my above experience and GPA to get into a PhD program? Or am I better off just applying to MS programs? Do I even have a chance to get into a MS program? I keep hearing that Neuroscience PhD programs are super impacted with everyone applying to them and requirements being so difficult. With that said, is it best to apply to Biology PhD programs then? Within most Biology programs, it seems as though I still would be able to study under the professors I want. Should I dedicate a paragraph explaining my low GPA dip? Thinking of applying abroad to schools like University of London and University of Edinburgh (both Masters) to help boost my chances of getting in. I heard they are easier to get into if you are coming from the US. If anyone has experience with either - is that true?
  5. 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 school in the future. My main concern is that I was hoping to improve my major GPA this semester, as I'm finishing my last 2 stats requirements. My major GPA is a 3.5 right now, and my overall GPA is 3.7 if that's important. So, I'm conflicted as to what to do... I feel like I should be able to take my school's advice and stick with pass/fail, but at the same time, I'm not sure how this would affect my grad school applications. I also do believe that as time goes on, my grades will matter less and less, but I could be wrong on this. Anyway, since I'm not applying right now and should be working for at least a year before applying, perhaps I just shouldn't stress about trying to get good letter grades and should just chill and do pass/fail? Still, it's an annoying decision to have to make, as I feel like I could probably do well in these classes despite the craziness going on in the world right now. Lastly, I understand grad school admissions committees will obviously understand that we are amidst a global pandemic and that therefore tons of other students will also have pass/fail grades this semester. But still, I'd hate to take my classes pass/fail if it seems good letter grades could really help me in my grad school pursuits. That's it... I'm just very conflicted. Thank you for any clarity you all can provide!
  6. 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 are out of 10, the two math courses covered some linear algebra and the rest was multivariable calculus but did not have vector calculus stuff like green's theorem. The statistics course was calculus based and had random variables, hypo testing, clt and similar stuff. Econometrics was mostly regression stuff. Graduate Institution : Indian Statistical Institute Major : Quantitative Economics ( MS in QE) Grade : 86/100 (This is only one semester, I rank 4 in a batch of 23.) Relevant Courses : Math Methods (95), Statistics (95), Game Theory (91), Probability Theory (66) Math course had good amount of linear algebra, decent amount of real analysis and a lot of optimization topics like KKT. Statistics was taught from Casella & Berger, was very mathematical had things like cramer-rao bound, cramer woldt device, likelihood ratio test, NP lemma etc, Prob Theory was from the stat department and I couldn't do well in it because Real Analysis was a prerequisite which I had not studied, the course had convergence concepts(almost surely,distribution etc) and markov chains. Relevant courses from this semester are Econometrics I, Theory Of Mechanism Design( not sure how relevant but it is a mathematical course). When the time to apply comes I will have had a course in Real Analysis(Analysis-I from the stat dept) and I am pretty sure I'll get an 80+ in it and I will also have had and additional course in Econometrics, one in Sample Survey and and one in Time Series, in my last semester I will also take either Measure Theory or Analysis - II depending on my interest, I cannot take these now or in the next semester as the Institute doesn't allow too many courses from other dept. in one semester. General GRE : Quant(165), Verbal(164) GRE Mathematics Subject Test : Not given yet. The things that I worry about are that my UG institute wasn't really the best in the country, it wasn't a bad school but just wasn't amongst the top colleges, my GPA in UG is also not fabulous however I think it is still better in the relevant courses. Will bad grade in prob theory be a significant factor? One thing that I think I have going for me is my Grad School's brand name in Statistics and even in Economics it is the best program in the country and is also the most selective one. I am also planning to give the GRE Math by studying for it over the summer, I think I should be able to manage 70+(worst case scenario) percentile on this, will this add significant value for top schools because if not then I could intern over the summer and make good money. LOR : One will be from my game theory and Mechanism Design professor who is a PhD in industrial engineering, rest all will be from economists though should be good. My dream programs are Stanford MS Statistics, U of Chicago Stats, Harvard Biostats, CMU,U of Washington. Can you guys tell me about my chances at these schools and also the schools that I should actually apply to . Also what else can I do to improve my chances of getting into the best programs, and should I do a not stats relevant internship in the summer or give the GRE Math, sorry for too many questions.
  7. 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 at K-State and helped publish a journal with several professors for a few of the years I was there and gave talks at several conferences. I'm having trouble deciding which program to choose so if I could get any feedback on the above programs I would appreciate it. I really want to attend Columbia but I might not hear back from them for a week and USF says I may lose my spot if I don't commit by 3/20. My reason for Columbia is they seem to offer a substantial amount of research opportunities. From my understanding USF doesn't have as many research opportunities as Depaul and Columbia because it's only a year long program compared to two years. Can anyone attest to the value of a two year program over a one year program? On top of that can anyone attest to the overall experience or what they've heard in regards to opportunities they've gotten at these institutions?
  8. 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 behavioural economics and did some digging. And then after reading some posts from @spunky, quant psych appears to me as a more realistic option job-wise and still a way to pursue my interests. Now I'm looking for good quant psych programs and possibly behavioural econ or positive psych program with strong quant focus. Is there any suggestions in programs? I am open to PhD programs, but I don't seem to be quite qualified for that. PS: a little background about me: one college level Calculus and one Statistics plus Research Method/ GRE: V163, Q161, confident to level Q to 170 if needed/ Major in Psych and Philosophy and graduate with honor/ GPA 3.77/ One paper as co-author for undergrad capstone in positive psych, a poster and several presentations for the same project Any feedback would be greatly appreciated!
  9. 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.
  10. 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!
  11. 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 everyone else!
  12. 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.
  13. 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)?
  14. 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
  15. 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!
  16. 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) Presented at a URC (undergraduate research conference) Will also have a Senior Honors Thesis in which I will have conducted my own experiment I would really appreciate constructive criticism; anything to improve my application will help!
  17. 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...
  18. 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
  19. 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 LORs can rectify these deficiencies. I know it's probably neurotic of me to be asking at all, I just can't help but worry after spending an untold amount of time perusing this site and worrying about my app. Here's my run-down: Undergrad Institution: Knox College Major(s): Biology Minor(s): Spanish, Art History, Chemistry (unofficial, but have enough chem credits for one) GPA in Major: 3.7 Overall GPA: 3.65 (both GPAs would be higher, had severe health problems sophomore year but still did well) Position in Class: Guessing top 10%, my school doesn't use class positions though Type of Student: First-generation white female GRE Scores (revised/old version): Q: 154 (I am worried this is too low, but I don't think QGRE scores are the most important aspect of an app.) V: 162 W: 5.5 B: N/A Research Experience: The entire summer of 2015 I worked in the Axtell lab at Penn State in plant molecular biology with a focus on the diversity of small RNAs, with a term of independent study to prepare beforehand. I was not specifically interested in plant research, I found the experience with molecular-based methods to be quite useful. Furthermore, this year (2016-2017), I am undergoing independent Honors senior research regarding bacterial CRISPR loci diversity in natural soil populations using culture-independent methods. My advisor (the same one that supervised my Penn State REU is supervising my honors thesis, he is also writing me a LOR) and I plan to publish my work if things continue to progress well. So, I will have around ~1.5 years of research experience by the time I graduate, ranging from molecular to microbiology to bioinformatics based tools. Awards/Honors/Recognitions: S-STEM Scholar: Received through 2014-2017, the C.O.A.S.T. program (Creating Opportunities and Access in Science and Technology) is an NSF-funded scholarship program at Knox College which gives up to $10,000 annually to six first generation or low-income college students interested in the sciences. The program additionally provides extra mentoring and opportunities to attend science lectures. Dean's List for over 2 years Honors society member Pertinent Activities or Jobs Bio lab TA for over a year. Art History tutor "Success tutor" to incoming first-gen undergrads Special Bonus Points: 1 LOR from my Honors and REU supervisor which I believe is strong (he seems well known in the molecular field and got his PhD from MIT), another from my formal advisor who is in charge of the NSF scholarship program I'm in, as well as a really strong LOR from my art history professor who knows me very well personally. Applying to Where: University of MN - Twin Cities (this is my top choice based on research interests and for financial reasons) University of Iowa University of Colorado - Denver Loyola University University of WI-Madison (this is my reach school and not expecting to get in)
  20. 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 extent to which you agree or disagree with the recommendation and explain your reasoning for the position you take. In developing and supporting your position, describe specific circumstances in which adopting the recommendation would or would not be advantageous and explain how these examples shape your position. My essay: Correct methods of teachings have been explored, experimeted, and evolved within the past few decades. To a great measure, the public at large is interested in how to better teach students, children, and their collegues. In the preceeding paragraph, the author states that the best method of teaching is to praise positive actions, and ignore the negative ones. In my view, the best way to teach is not so simple as to praise positive actions and ignore the negative ones, but to address why those negative actions are wrong. Everyone is probably familiar with the phrase, “we learn from our mistakes.” In reality, one may learn just as much learn from their mistakes as they learn from their successes. The light bulb, an essential appliance to the modern-day industry, was tried and experimented over a hundred times before the recipe was finally realized. Thus, clear differentiating between what is good and what is bad, what is helpful and what is not, is necessary to successful teaching. Consider, for example, a bulgary occurred today at the local bank. If the local police ignored the bulgary, that, of course, would not help prevent future bulgaries. Secondly, if a teacher only praises positive actions, the person acting may not be truly convinced to continue those good actions. A child, for example, may become accustomed to doing good deeds only if there is a reward involved. Therefore, good intentions may be absent from the child, and may only practice good actions when the reward is present. In conclusion, it is clear how simply praising positive acitons and ignoring negative ones is a lesser form of teaching. Successful teaching comes from adressing mistakes and correcting them so that positive actions can be practiced in more abundance.
  21. 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 overdeveloped, is debating a proposed measure that would prevent the development of existing farmland in the county. But the council is also concerned that such a restriction, by limiting the supply of new housing, could lead to significant increases in the price of housing in the county. Proponents of the measure note that Chestnut County established a similar measure ten years ago, and its housing prices have increased only modestly since. However, opponents of the measure note that Pine County adopted restrictions on the development of new residential housing fifteen years ago, and its housing prices have since more than doubled. The council currently predicts that the proposed measure, if passed, will result in a significant increase in housing prices in Maple County. Write a response in which you discuss what questions would need to be answered in order to decide whether the prediction and the argument on which it is based are reasonable. Be sure to explain how the answers to these questions would help to evaluate the prediction. My essay: The preceeding argument states that housing prices in Maple County will significantly increase if restrictions on housing developemnt are placed on the county’s farmland. This premise is not valid, as it relies on too many unsound assumptions. First, by believing that the housing prices will increase as they did in Pine County, the argument assumes that Maple County has to be similar to Pine County. Perhaps, the houses built in Maple County would be more affordable for the people there, than in Pine county. Because the argument paragraph neglects to state similarities between the two counties, the reader has no way of knowing how one county could follow the same trend as another, ultimately having same effect from the restriciton. To strengthen the premise, the author should describe to the reader the similarities Maple County has to Pine County, and the people there, reenforcing why the housing prices would rise. Another assumption that the argument fails to recognize is how things may change over time. It is stated that the housing prices in Pine County more than doubled from the same restricitons, but this was over 15 years ago. Therefore, the author believes that what was true fifeteen years ago, is true today. Even if we treated these counties as equal, this is an obvious fallacy because maybe the economy is better today for Maple County than it was back then for Pine County, and thus, the effect may favor more to that of Chestnut County, only increasing moderately. To make the argument more believable, the author must give reasons why the economics of today are similar to the economics fifeteen years ago for Pine County. In conclusion, the author relies on several unwarranted assumptions to prove that the predicted result of Maple County’s plan will be similar to that of Pine County’s.
  22. 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.
  23. 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 really well known PI. I currently have my own project in my lab and have been awarded a grant to continue my work on it. I also expect to be on two different publications by the end of the calendar year, one from each of the labs that I've been in. I want to study either genetics or developmental biology for my PhD and am thinking of applying to the following schools (this includes my reaching schools): University of Colorado - Anschutz University of Utah University of Texas - Austin University of Oregon University of Washington University of Wisconsin - Madison University of Pennsylvania Duke Stanford My main question is: do I even have a chance? And are there other programs that come to mind for you that I should look into in my preliminary considerations for application to grad school?
  24. 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 year; Los Angeles is a booming city for social work Cons: maybe the "safe" or boring option because it is close to home; maybe not ranked as high as SDSU (I am not sure about the reputations) SDSU: Pros: move to San Diego would be new and exciting; concentrations might allow me to become more of an expert in one topic Cons: Might cost most with living expenses Tuition is about the same. I have received some aid from SDSU, but I have not gotten my financial aid package from CSUN yet so it is hard to say what the final numbers will be. I would really appreciate any tips or insight that anyone could give me on CSUN and/or SDSU's programs, San Diego and Northridge in general, and simply the entire deciding process. It is a big decision, but such a hard one to make! Thank you!!
  25. 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!!
