  1. There seem to be a lot of threads asking the same thing popping up lately and I figured it might make sense to make an overall guide thread and then those who feel their answers still haven’t been adequately answered can post below for an idea of what their chances are. Here is a brief rundown of factors affecting your likelihood of getting into top-tier and well respected programs. If you fall below par in any one of these factors you can bump it up by being stellar in one of the others. I'll add to this if others point out other things I've left out. School requirements: Your first s
  2. Hi fellow grads! I just finished writing my first SOP draft. It starts by saying that when I was little I already loved Computer Science, I taught myself how to program... Now that I am done, I am reading that many candidates start their SOP like that, making the SOP one more on the pile. From your experience or opinion, is it okay to star an SOP like this? Do you have better ideas or tips to start the SOP? Thank you!
  3. No new PhD students in Asian Studies were accepted this year at the University of British Columbia due to lack or funding. This thread is for all those who wish to talk about and work towards receiving a refund of the application fee. The University of Columbia was in a similar position this year and not able to secure funding for new PhD students, so they did not accept applications. Be it that this decision was only made recently at UBC, I still think that it is not right for them to keep everyone's money. I think the best approach is first for everyone to request a refund via ema
  4. Does anyone know if OISE allows deferrals? I got accepted to their M.Ed for developmental psychology and education on June 2nd but have already accepted a teaching job at a school for this academic year due to the fact that I hadn't heard anything for so long. I'm really conflicted about what to do and would ideally get a 1 year deferral but I've heard from people that OISE doesn't do that. Any help/information would be greatly appreciated!!
  5. I am applied to University of Southern California’s Master of Social Work program back in April, and I am anxiously awaiting the results. This is my dream program because I know two people who are alumni and I want to make them proud. However, I was reviewing my application and I noticed some mistakes on my part. 1. I put that I attended one of my community colleges for two school years, but I forgot that I attended another semester online while physically attending a different community college. 2. I also forgot that I started at the university I graduated from much earlier because
  6. Hi all, I recently applied to the MPPA program at Carleton. Just wanted to make a thread so people can discuss admissions, funding, etc! Where did you apply and what are the statuses of your apps?
  7. Hello dear forum, I have been reading here quietly for a while now, since there are two questions in particular driving me around that I haven't been able to answer properly yet: 1) Should I apply for PhDs this year (for a start in fall 2022) with my current profile and thus have only studied a few months in my Master? and 2) Which of the Master's programs best fits my focus and could still best "push" my PhD applications? Goal: I would prefer to do a PhD in Comparative Politics or IR theory, keeping a focus on South Asia. Most of the exciting programs I am hav
  8. I've been lurking hoping someone will post news, but it looks like all the aspiring geographers had the same idea. Figured I'd go ahead and get us started to see if anyone has heard anything yet. I'm applying to the following PhD programs: Kentucky (Apps not due until 1/15 so not surprised I have not heard) Berkeley Michigan State UW Madison CUNY (EES Program) Washington Have not heard anything. It's a weird year to be applying, so I'm eager to hear how this round shakes out. Good luck to the rest of you!
  9. Hi everyone, I am 1 year out of college and a first year teacher. I am interested in applying to graduate school over the summer, and would like to score a 330+ on the GRE. My tentative plan is to take in June. I have been studying casually since February (3 ish hours per week) and only started REALLY studying (2 hours/day) last week. On my first Magoosh mock, I got a 314. Q: 157 V: 157 I am disappointed in my starting point, but am extremely motivated to increase my score. Does anyone have any advice, particularly for prospective test-takers who are working full time?
  10. Hello world! Has anyone done the video response as part of SIPA's admissions package? I know it's being implemented as of 2017 application cycle, so I am wondering if there are any Spring 2017 candidates that have already done it. Helpful tips, feedback, etc. would be much appreciated!
  11. Hi guys! I'm an applicant for the CMHS year 1 program fall 2021 at UPenn GSE. My application was complete on 02/05 and I still haven't received any updates regarding my application, so I'm getting really nervous. I know this may be a long shot, but does anyone who submitted their application in early February hear back from the program?
  12. 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
  13. Hi guys, Long time reader, first time poster. I will be graduating with a BS in psychology next spring (May 2022), and I've decided I will definitely be furthering my education. Depending on my GRE scores and GPA, I will be applying for either a masters program or PsyD program in clinical psychology. I am leaning towards an MA program because I feel that I would benefit from the extra 2 years of graduate school (plus, I'm unsure if my future GPA/GRE scores will be good enough for a PsyD program). I have been pouring over forums and articles about graduate school and I understand that expe
  14. I would like to apply to one safe Ivy League university for my master's in computer science. Which of the following has the least selective program according to you? University of Pennsylvania Brown University Columbia University Please do share any insights also if you have any regarding this. Thanks in advance
  15. I'm considering applying to a MA program and from there to a PhD. Will probably focus on applied ethics in the areas of bioethics or AI. The writing sample is one of the most important parts of an application. I wanted to get some pointers on where I could find examples of successful writing samples for grad programs, so I can get a better sense of what my sample will need to be. I've looked at some journals for undergrad publications, which may go on to get repurposed as writing samples, but haven't found many writing samples specifically. Alternatively, you could just send me yours
  16. I was wondering if anyone knows anything about how the data science/analytics + public policy Masters programs compare with each other and how they're regarded in the policy world (esp. social policy)? I recently got into the Harris MSCAPP (Computational Analysis and Public Policy) program at UChicago and it's my top choice, but I'm also considering applying to some other programs (below). Let me know what you think! Georgetown McCourt - M.S. Data Science for Public Policy CMU - M.S. Public Policy Management: Data Analytics Track UPenn - M.S. Social Policy + Data Analysis
  17. If you're not getting a response/ reply-back from the potential PI, are you still going to apply for that program? I'm not sure whether they're just busy, uncertain, not taking any students, or simply have no interest in my application. Are there anyone who has an experience when you didn't got a response but still got accepted?
  18. Hi, I hope all of you stay safe in such a difficult situation. I'm planning to apply to the CS (to be specific, HCI) for the upcoming Fall 2022 semester. I know this might sound a bit 'out of time' question, but I'd like to ask all of you about my profile and gain some insight on my future application process. I have several top-tier pubs with low gpa, and I'm having trouble looking for some references for my future application. If possible, please give me any of the advice including evaluation of my profile, future direction of improvement, or some possible target schools.
  19. Dear all, New member here. I am thinking of applying to Rockefeller, and wondering if anyone here will be applying to their Biosciences PhD program this Fall? I would really appreciate any general information and advice about the application process from individuals who have already been accepted in previous years and how current applicants are preparing in general, as well as things like non-official GPA requirements (Current GPA is 3.3, it can be fixed but will be known after application deadline ... is it worth applying?). Many thanks in advance.
  20. Hi All! I have been a lurker for quite some time, and have noticed that a significant number of people are senior graduate students or have some affiliation with the recruitment process of various graduate programs. I had a quick question about if anyone has heard anything about the upcoming application season (2020/2021). I definitely understand that the previous season just wrapped up, but with the recent developments of coronavirus/quarantine, does anyone know if applications/interviews/visits/etc will even be conducted this year (probably worst case scenario if they do not), or
  21. Hi! I am applying to biostatistics/comp bio PhD and MS programs for Fall 2021. I spent two years studying bio and then transferred to statistics. I am kinda of worried about if I am qualified enough for PhD, especially that I didn't take many grad level math classes. I am gonna take some this fall but some schools have very early deadline so they won't see my grades. My GPA is not super high either ( The school I went to is famous for low GPA ). So I am applying to some MS programs as well, in case I cannot get into phD. Please let me know if the schools that I apply are too high or low for
  22. I'm planning on applying for grad school this year, pursuing a PhD in physics or astronomy. Do they ever look at your social media (facebook, twitter, instagram) when you apply? This is probably a silly thing to worry about, but I'm wondering because I've become more outspoken on social media in the past year. I have been engaging in discussions (some might call them arguments 😅) with people in comment sections... Mostly expressing my opinions on US 'politics', social issues, religion, etc (if it matters, I am leftist and agnostic). I'm never disrespectful of others' views, it's just that I am
  23. I am a 27 year old economist with 3 years of professional experience in data science. I finally made up my mind about studying a master's in data science and plan to send in my applications as soon as October to multiple schools in the UK and Canada. Unfortunately, I do not meet the so called 2:1 honors degree requirement. A 2:1 degree is the equivalent to an 8.5 out of 10 in my country's system and I'm a long way off, sitting at 8 out of 10. How will this impact my applications? I would like to know whether or not schools will immediately reject me. Has anyone here been in a similar situ
  24. Hey everyone so I started this thread because there was no thread for Fordham’s MSW program for Fall 2020 ... unless there is (sorry) I applied Feb. 1 2020 and am waiting now ~ to the Westchester campus. Let me know what you guys did.
