  1. Hi Everyone, I had my interview at UT Health San Antonio on March 28th over Skype (very short notice and I am currently not in the USA), and the committee told me that- after the interview, if I am accepted, they would want to run a criminal. Shortly after the interview the department coordinator sent me a form which I had to fill out and send back to run said background check (which, according to the interview means I was accepted, as per their words). It has been two weeks and I am kind of anxious that they did not send me an official acceptance letter yet. Should I be worried? and more
  2. In anticipation of the receipt of application decisions, I have a question concerning how to regard the prestige of a school versus the value of research fit. To begin, I think that I am a fairly strong candidate for most doctoral statistics programs. To determine the schools to which I applied, I searched for schools where at least three or four faculty members were engaged in a line of research that I would be interested in pursuing. Accordingly, the list of schools to which I applied included a number of schools not ranked in the top tier of schools—at least according to comments that I hav
  3. This is sort of a long story so thanks in advance to anyone willing to read/help. I graduated from PSU in 2015 with a BS in Communication Sciences & disorders, decided to take a break and work before applying for my Masters. Unfortunately, my mom was unexpectedly diagnosed with stage iv cancer and I ended up having to quit my job to be a full-time caregiver. She has since passed away and it's time for me to get moving again but at this point, I don't really know where to start. I feel like getting a letter of recommendation from a professor I had 3 years ago (at such a large scho
  4. Starting Fall '19, applications to Texas A&M University's graduate courses will have to sent through a third party portal named EngineeringCAS. The part which confuses me is that EngineeringCAS has its own codes for GRE and TOEFL scores. So do we need to report the scores again even if we have already sent them to TAMU? Also, there's this part about WES evaluation. Is it compulsorily required to apply to all schools or only to certain majors like Material Science and Engineering? Do we need to do the WES evaluation even if we have official transcripts from our undergraduate colleges?
  5. Hello all! I usually am pretty passive when it comes to this site, but I am really in need of some input from anyone I can get it from. I am planning to apply (second round) for PhD Clinical Psych programs this fall and am really trying to decide if a) I should retake my GRE and b) if I have a chance of getting in. Some background information about me is that I am currently getting an MS in Clinical Psychology and am in a fully funded program. I have done a practicum with Arkansas Children's Hospital that was 4 months long, another 4 months at Head Start, and will currently be in a practicum s
  6. Hi everyone, I've been reading the threads from past years for those applying to School Psychology Ph.D. programs and they've been so helpful so I thought I'd make one for fall 2018 applicants! Hopefully we can all go through this process together Where is everyone applying?
  7. Hi everyone, I was just wondering if someone could inform me of the day of the week most Ph.D. Interview days are on (if there is a consistent one). I'm guessing most are on Fridays but if anyone could provide some insight it would be really helpful because I'm trying to plan my work schedule for the new year. (Also if it helps I'm applying to School Psychology Ph.D. Programs). Thanks so much!
  8. I am currently applying to programs and wondered if mentioning my lower gpa (3.47) is worth it, particularly for Berkeley. I graduated seven years ago and have since gone on to work both overseas and locally with underserved populations in positions that I believe will help my application stand out (local government agencies, schools, and the Peace Corps + volunteer work). I also have a fairly unique future career interest and language skill that I hope will work for me in the application reading process. However, my undergrad (a double major in education and theology) is fairly spotty--bounci
  9. I am planning on applying to 8-10 Statistics Ph.D. programs, but one school is definitely my first choice. I am trying to keep this question pretty general because I am sure that other people are in a similar situation. The program has everything I want: research in my specific field (applied Bayesian statistics), great funding, departmental focus on Ph.D. program, ideal funding, weather, you name it. It's a program that I have a fairly good shot at getting into, but there is still a chance I will get rejected. I want to make sure the admission committee at this school understands that I re
  10. Hello. I am looking forward to apply for PhD in behavioural neuroscience for the fall 2018 batch. I have a BA in JPE ( journalism, psychology and English) where I scored 69.43%, and have pursued masters in psychology( MSc Psychology) with a CGPA of 7.14, both from India. I have a master's dissertation which i wrote during my final semester. I worked for a year for an IB school. I am taking the GRE in September mid. I am really confused about several things. I don't really know how strong my profile is. I did find a few universities which aligned with my interests but i want to know whether i
  11. Hi, I'm interested in applying this December for a PhD Clinical Psychology program for Fall 2018. I have a few questions regarding how to know what schools to apply to and determining what schools are schools I would be able to get into. My background: Behavioral Neuroscience major and computer science minor at Northeastern University graduating in May 2018, 3.5 overall GPA, 3.67 behavioral neuroscience GPA, and 3.75 Psychology GPA. I have 4 publications (first author of 2, one pertaining to autism research). I have done 2 six month coops working 40 hr/week in a Newborn Medicine Lab at Bo
  12. I am not a very good student over all, GRE scores were in the mid 140's and got a 4 in writing. My cumulative GPA is 3.48 but in my speech courses it's only a 3.0. I am desperately trying to find Speech Pathology masters programs that are not ridiculous to get into. I'm asking about NYU because I spoke to an advisor there who was VERY optimistic about my getting in. Compared to everyone else I've spoken to, this was a major relief and is even making me consider paying the stunning $76,000 for the degree!! Anyways, this advisor told me that NYU does not have a cap on how many students they
  13. So, I'm sure a large portion of everyone here is experiencing this horrible anxiety regarding their applications. I've never had problems like this with other applications (for REUs, undergrad, etc) before but honestly every day is torture. I was initially confident about my application as I really did everything that I could during undergrad to prepare for a doctoral program (I graduate w/ a degree in Biology with Honors in June 2017), but upon looking at the selectivity of the schools I applied to and just spending an undue amount of time on this sight, I can't help but deeply worry that I w
  14. i'm about to give gre at the end of this month and i'm so much confused and tensed. still i haven't selected colleges yet. please help me through the process that should i have to select colleges before appearing for gre or i can select later. Please please help.
  15. Hi all, I've been turning in my applications pretty close to the due date. This is because I was under the impression that for MPP programs it's not really rolling admissions/application date doesn't really matter much as long as it's before the due date. But now I'm seeing that some people on here have already received some decisions because they applied earlier. Do you think my application date matters? Thank you!
  16. Hello everyone! I am new to The Grad Cafe. I am an undergraduate student from Michigan currently pursuing a degree in Sociology. I will graduate in April 2017 (1 year away)! I plan to attend an MSW program straight out of undergrad and am curious to get some insight from those who have already gone through the process. I have been researching for a few months and right now I am most interested in: University of Michigan University of Washington University of Denver Portland State University UC Berkeley Smith College My path would be clinical. I am most
  17. I am going to be applying to PhD programs in Finance for the 2017-2018 school year and am currently in the process of researching programs. I'm specifically looking to study banking and am choosing programs that have strong faculty and/or research centers in this area. I'm somewhat stumped by the etiquette of whether or not to contact professors who are conducting similar research to my own/potential advisors prior to the application process. One part of me thinks that it could be beneficial to have a conversation about what research is being done on the topic in the department, develop a cont
  18. Hi all... I imagine that I'm not the only one applying to doctoral programs this year. I figured that this forum might be a decent place to share our experience, strength, hopes, and let-downs this year. Best of luck to you all...
