  1. I know that the final deadline for accepting offers is 15th of April, but I was wondering if it is possible to receive admission/GRA offers after that date if a faculty members wants you to join their lab.
  2. Like many others have done, I'm a current first year grad student! Feel free to ask any questions from applying to grad school itself! We're all in this together and I remember how rough the application process was!
  3. Hello all! Just joined - glad to be here! I'm currently a junior and have been considering going to graduate school for quite some time but I'm not exactly sure what to do to prepare myself as fully as possible for the applications. I've been enjoying my time in college and doing lots of academic and nonacademic stuff not related to graduate school, but I'm kind of a mess when it comes to planning and working towards grad school. I'm an international student double majoring in computational biology and mathematics at an R1 university in the US and enjoying it immensely - and I want to continue in the intersection of the two fields (computational genomics, high-throughput tech analysis and design, network inference, systems biology). I've been in and out of research assistantships throughout college but never stuck to one that I feel strongly about (the one I'm working on right now has been going on for about 3 months). I also don't yet know any faculty close enough to ask for a recommendation letter. I was co-author on two papers from a past research assistantship not related to my field (materials engineering), and I have a sole-author manuscript up on arXiv. Current project may result in a pub (according to my research supervisor) but I'm not sure. My GPA is around average for my major (around 4.6-4.7 on a 5.0 scale), although I have been taking graduate courses and an above-average load in recent semesters. My goal is to finish undergrad with my current GPA but I am not quite sure if that's enough for what I'm aiming towards for graduate school (either continue at this university or another R1). My university also has a one-year Master's program that requires a 4.25 technical GPA that I'm confident I will reach, and I'm considering spending a year post-undergrad for that to do research and prepare better for grad school. No clue about the GREs yet. I have also been dealing with mental health issues since freshman year and diagnosed with ADD a year and a half ago. I am accommodated by the university but it shows on my work and grades. I mainly wanted to post just to get an idea of what should I be focusing on for the future. Maybe it's too early, I don't know; but I can't help but get nervous when my classmates are getting incredibly lucrative job offers and such. I wanted to be a professor in academia my whole life and I'm my best and most passionate self when doing research. Right now I'm kind of lost. I would be grateful for any advice! How do I connect with faculty and research supervisors for possible assistantships/projects? Is my GPA enough for R1 institutions? Will the Master's program benefit me in preparing for grad school? Should I take the GREs for a potential added plus for GRE-optional schools? Should I mention my mental health issues and disability to research supervisors/advisors and in grad school applications? I'll take any advice. Thank you so much in advance!

    Medical Illustration 2019?

    Hello! I applied to medical illustration grad school programs that start in Fall of 2019. Does anyone have advice on how to prepare for a graduate school interview for these programs? I've never had a grad school interview in my life and what to know how to prepare myself. Also, any timeline ideas on when I might hear back from the other schools? I have an interview at Augusta, and I applied to Hopkins, Chicago, and Toronto. Thanks! -Jordan
  5. Hey everyone! I don't know why but I feel like the graphic design department of every college functions seperately, in regard to their applications and admissions roll-out, so thought of having a different topic about the same. Thoughts?

    PhD Applications Fall '18 Season

    I thought I'd go ahead and start this up. Where are you all applying and in what field? I'm applying for PhD programs in NT, but have yet to finalize my list of schools. Currently, I'm considering applying to: Baylor, Emory, Duke, Duke Div, Notre Dame, PTS, Yale. I may add some schools before all is said and done. Faculty changes have made it harder to narrow down my list. It seems like many senior faculty decided to retire around the same time! I'm thinking of Yale (Attridge and Dale Martin), Emory (LTJ and Holladay), and ND (Moss left, so she didn't retire, but they now only have two NT profs).
  7. Hi everyone! I am looking to apply to a master's program next year. A potential problem that occurred to me is that I will have at least six different transcripts from different schools. I transferred once in undergrad, took community college courses at two different schools, and did a post-bacc. I am worried that this might show I was unable to commit to a program/school. Does anyone have any thoughts or experience with this?

    UCLA Luskin MPP GPA

    I'm considering Luskin MPP and am wondering how strict they are with the minimum 3.0 GPA requirement? I am a sub3.0 gpa but scored 85th percentiles in verbal and quant on my GRE. I had a couple incidents in college but nonetheless graduated undergrad with BS in Econ (quant heavy) from a big R1 university. Would my sub 3.0 gpa really be the kicker keeping me out?

    Health Communication Programs

    Evening everyone! I'm a potential applicant for PhD programs next year if things don't work out this year. I'm also planning to pursue a dual-title phd in communication at one of the schools I applied to this year. Any places I can use to look for phd programs that specialize in health comm/intercultural comm/social networks? Thank you in advance!
  10. Hello! I'm working to narrow down my target list of PhD programs (mix of social and developmental) with plans to apply this coming Fall. I've identified a number of professors at various schools (UK, UT Austin, UBC, Cornell, UCSC, UW Madison) conducting research in areas that align with my interests, however my true (long-term) passion is for teaching and I can't figure out how to evaluate programs' commitments to training in that area. I know all schools have some kind of teaching component, but I'd really love to end up at a program that is dedicated to teacher training excellence. I realize that research will always be a big part of any program, and that's totally fine, but I want to come out of my PhD ready to be an amazing teacher (either at Community College or small colleges, I don't need the high profile universities or research tenure positions). I would really love to hear any thoughts on this subject. I know I could just go after a Masters and technically get a teaching position, but it seems like it's so competitive now that even at the "lower" levels a PhD is needed, even if not technically required. Thanks in advance!!

    Just Applied!

    I turned in my applications for University of Wisconsin, Arizona State University, and University of Wisconsin - Milwaukee! I'm debating on whether to turn my Simmons application in or not... This whole ordeal has been a lot of work and stress! Let me know if you are also applying or if you have any questions about the process, I can at least give you my side of things.
  12. Hi Everyone, I'm a long-time lurker, first time poster. I am about to complete my post-bacc program (I was an English major) through Cal State San Marcos (CSUSM). I am also working on applications for grad schools, and had some questions for you knowledgable folks about course equivalencies, as I am struggling with this. Sorry for the length of this post, I appreciate your reading it and any help you can provide! The CSUSM Post-Baccalaureate coursework is here, to avoid making this thread too long to read - https://www.csusm.edu/slp/programs/prep/coursedescriptions.html On CalApply, for CSULB, it says that at least 30 units in CSD are required to apply, but then provides a list of 18 classes through the department website with an equivalency chart, which amounts to significantly more than 30 units. It is accessible here - http://web.csulb.edu/colleges/chhs/departments/speech-languagepathology/student-resources/documents/2018SLPMAProgramApplicationForm_000.pdf The chart says that the course equivalencies must be one to one, but several of the classes I have taken have covered materials that fulfill multiple of the items on the chart. Does anyone know if the chart has to be 100% completed with 18 equivalent classes, or does the 30 units rule apply, thus making the CSUSM post-bacc program sufficient for me to be able to apply to CSULB? If they need all 18 classes, does anyone have any suggestions of where I can take the missing classes a-la-carte without having to apply to a full, second program? Additionally, I am looking to apply to Cal State Fullerton (CSUF). Their program description lists 12 pre-req courses, but is a bit confusing - do I only need to satisfy 8 of the 12 listed classes only to be able to matriculate, and then I can get waivers in the school for any I haven't taken, or do all 12 have to be completed by the time school starts? CSUSM's post-bacc appears to be missing these 3 from Fullerton's list - 1. Aural Rehabilitation 2. Voice & Craniofacial Disorders 3. Fluency Disorders If these courses are needed before next fall, does anyone have any recommendations where I could take them a-la-carte? Thanks in advance, and thanks for reading this long post!
  13. Hello and thank you in advance for reading about my predicament. I am an undergraduate at a regional public university. Let me be upfront--it's not a great school. I was accepted to a variety of really amazing colleges out of high school (University of Washington, St. John's College, etc) but I could not attend due to my parents refusal to co-sign for student loans or help me financially (they had high income so I did not qualify for student aid). So, I worked for a year and a half, more than full time, as a corporate research analyst to save up money for school. At the end of that year, I enrolled in the local branch campus of a major state university. After a semester, I transferred here to a less regarded regional public school. Why? I was studying Public Affairs/Domestic Policy but I wanted a more Internationally-focused program and a school where I could study a language and study abroad. That, and I am paying far less and going into little (if any) debt. I am an International Affairs major pursuing a Gender Studies certificate with minors in Economics and Spanish. I have not yet taken the GREs but I have always tested well, and with practice tests online I have always scored fair-high. My GPA is 4.0 currently and I will probably maintain between a 3.95 and 4.0 for my college career. Classes I have achieved 4.0 in include Statistics, Macroeconomics, Microeconomics, and intermediate Spanish so not all super easy classes. I also have a calculus background (from high school). To give a pretty brief overview of my resume (not including accomplishments), I completed a fellowship with a national (well-known) nonprofit/political organization focusing on international women's health and US foreign policy, participated in the UN Commission on the Status of Women, interned with the Human Rights Education Institute, interned with multiple political campaigns, founder/president of multiple clubs and organizations, was the Budget & Finance Chair of a local political action committee, worked in the International Students office at my university, was a reporter for a student newspaper, student representative on President's commission on gender equity, campus fellow for climate change organization, grant research for refugee organization, social media coordinator for national women's rights organization, done some global women's rights research for London-based organization, done some political/electoral rights research for the UN Development Programme, conducting research on UN for another nonprofit, currently sitting on board of sustainable development organization that works in Kenya, and starting in January as a data analysis/criminal justice reform intern for local courthouse. Next summer I will study abroad in India (women's rights/Hindi) and the spring after next I will study abroad in Spain (spanish intensive). My hope is to study in a fairly quantitatively rigorous MPP program or MIA program, with a concentration in international development. The schools I am looking at include: - Princeton - Woodrow Wilson School (MPA in International Affairs) - Columbia University - SIPA (MA in International Relations) - Tufts University - Fletcher School (MA in Law and Diplomacy) - NYU - Wagner School (MSPP in International Development Policy) - College of William & Mary (MPP in International Development Policy) - University of Denver - Josef Korbel School (MA in International Human Rights) - University of Minnesota - Humphrey School (MPP, concentration in International Development) Is there any way I could get into these schools coming from the school I am coming from? I know Princeton/Columbia/Tufts are real stretches, should I bother even applying? What about NYU/CWM/UDenver? Should I get a few more years of work experience before applying to make myself more competitive? What other experiences should I look for to round out my application/resume?
  14. Should I use the professional transcript entry option if I have one undergraduate transcript, or should I just manually enter in my grades? The professional transcript entry option is $65 for three transcripts, and I only have one to enter.
  15. Hi Everyone! I'm applying to English/ Comp & Rhet programs for fall 2019. For my writing sample, I'm submitting a section of my Master's thesis and I'm wondering how to format it. Do I keep the cover page of my thesis so they know it's from a longer work? do I title it instead? Do I put my name?? for my SoP, I'm putting just my name and Statement of Purpose in the header--should I do this for the writing sample as well? I appreciate any insight--I've been out of school for several years and have no one to turn to for advice on small matters like these. Thank you!!
  16. Hi ya'll I applied to several PhD programs in Cell and Molecular Biology to focus in control of gene expression. As an undergrad I researched in gene regulation, but my lab tech and summer experiences are in neurobiology. Would that affect me if I applied to Molecular Biology programs but most of my experience is from a different field (Neuro)? Thank you
  17. I am wondering which professors I should mention in a particular statement of purpose. I already mentioned three professors, whose work is directly related to what I want to study. However, there is also another professor at the school, whose work I love in a different subfield area. I'd certainly want to take classes with him and his work connects to what I studied in college, but not to the focus of what I would want my PhD research to be. Should I mention him, too, or does that dilute things? Thank you so much! I have to submit this in a few days....

    Neuroscience PhD apps-- too much reach?

    Hi all-- first time posting here so if something is off please be patient with me :) I'm currently in the process of applying to neuroscience Ph.D. programs (hopefully with a computational neuroscience focus). I'm applying straight out of my undergrad and am absolutely terrified... I was convinced by my parents (mistake no 1) to apply to all the top tier schools in my field. Ie: Harvard, Yale, Columbia, Dartmouth, Brown, Princeton, NYU, Cornell, MIT. I'm also applying to Boston U, Mt Sinai (aka Icahn School of Medicine) as kind-of backup schools. (Realistically I think they're the only ones I have any shot at MAYBE getting an interview.) I know everyone asks this here, but: do I actually have a realistic chance of getting in? GRE: first attempt, 169V/162Q/5.0AW. second attempt, 164V/164Q/5.0AW. GPA: 3.69 cum, 3.6 (biochem) and 3.7 (math) major GPAs at my current school, but they don't count my (two years of) transferred credits from community college. With transfer credits, 3.84 cum GPA, 3.73 (biochem) and 3.84 (math) major GPAs. Math, biochem double major. I've been doing math research for ~1.5years, in a field that has neuro applications, but haven't actually done any neuroscience research. (1 publication as 2nd author; lots of poster/conference presentations.) My college is a mid-level public university, with no neuroscience program or coursework. However, I've tried to choose my electives so that they would help a grad degree/career in neuroscience. I'm active in academic clubs on campus and have some leadership experience. I also have quite a lot of community service, if that helps. Without revealing personal details I am very "well-rounded" both on paper and irl. I have 4 solid letters of rec, and am fairly confident with my statement of purpose. I interview well, but of course I have to get invited back for an interview first... I've been in contact with some faculty from most schools. At the very least, an email back from them saying "you look like a great fit, email me again if you get an interview". I'm sorry if this is a stupid thing to ask, but I'm nervous that I'll send out 11 apps and get 11 rejections. Please let me know what you guys think! Do I need more low-level schools? Are these all too much "reach"? Or would I be better off taking some time off to work as a lab tech or RA, and then applying in a few years from now? Thanks in advance~ ~coffeeveins
  19. Hi everyone- quick question regarding LOR requests. Upon filling out my applications, I realized I sent one of my requests to an erroneous email (for simplicity sake, let's say I used .com instead of .edu when typing it in). The program does not allow me to change the email after a request has been sent, so I had to "exclude" that recommendation and subsequently resend a different, correct one. The correct one is now successfully submitted. My question is - will this "excluded" request be visible by those reviewing the application and could it possibly be viewed negatively -- indicating carelessness? If this is the case, should I contact the school and see if there is a way they can manually remove the excluded request from my application package? Or am I being silly and this is nothing to worry about? Thanks for the help!
  20. My GRE scores were ridiculously low (157V/152Q/3AW). I have never taken standardized tests well and had the same problem with my SATs back in the day. My GPA is a 3.507 and I am doing a Neuroscience and Computer Science degree. I also have 19 months of cumulative full-time research experience (as of September of my Senior Year) and know what I want to study for my PhD. Do I stand a chance or will my GRE knock me out of the running?

    Writing Samples

    Hi Grad Cafe! I was hoping some of you could point me in the direction of writing samples that have been submitted with philosophy grad school applications. I'm curious about the quality of successful writing samples. I know what published work looks like, but I have no idea what high quality undergraduate work looks like.
  22. · A few weeks ago, I was asked to talk to first-year M.A. students about the Ph.D. application process. I prepared a list of what I figure to be key elements, and I figure it might be useful to many on GC who are preparing to go down this path as well. I'm quite certain that some of these points are purely subjective and open to discussion / debate, but having gone through the process a couple of times now, these items ring true based on my experiences and observations. ---------------- Others have surely told you about the state of the industry, so I’m just going to assume that you already know the “there are no jobs” spiel. · Others have also surely told you about how relatively difficult it is to get into a Ph.D. program—I have yet to hear of a program that admits over 10% of applicants. o Because of this, if you are committed to applying to Ph.D. programs, I strongly recommend considering applying to at least ten. Even though merit is a critical part of determining who gets in, there is a very real element of “luck of the draw” which pure numbers will help to mitigate. · With that in mind, NOW is a good time to get started on your program research · Your first consideration when entering the process should be to determine what era you would like to study, and ideally a general sense of methodologies you want to employ. These elements will be reflected in the two most important components of your application: the Statement of Purpose (or SoP), and your Writing Sample (WS). · Some basics: o The SoP and WS should ideally work together o When thinking about potential areas of study, avoid proposing transatlantic or transhistorical concepts: admissions committees are still very much set up by period, and your application should be easily sorted into a field group (i.e. you’re clearly a Romanticist, or you’re clearly a 20th century Americanist). o GRE scores, GPA, and other elements are important, but remember that the things you can control the most at this stage are the WS and SoP. o Given the importance of these two documents, you will want to get as many eyes on them as possible as soon as possible. § My SoP and WS were read and commented on by at least five professors and several fellow students, and ultimately went through at least six rounds of revision each—several of them top-to-bottom revisions. · There are multiple factors to consider when looking at programs. Some of the most important include: o Are there multiple professors actively working in your chosen field § I personally used a “rule of three”—if a program had three professors with significant research overlap with my interests, I would consider it. § By “active” I mean that you should be able to find publication credits from within the past five years—they need to be in touch with current scholarship. o What level of financial support do they offer—not just the annual funding, but whether they fund in summer, and how many years of funding are guaranteed o What courses have they offered in the past? What courses are they offering in the fall? o What is the teaching load like, and how do they prepare you for that load? o So-called rankings matter to a certain extent, but remember that those rankings are almost completely arbitrary. USNews rankings are helpful as a list of all programs offering Ph.D.s in English…and a very, very general sense of the strong programs vs. the less strong. But FIT with your interests trumps all. § (E.g. the Strode program at U of A is highly regarded, even though U of A itself is somewhat less so) o Location and cost of living. A 20k stipend will get you a lot further in Lincoln, Nebraska than in New York. And elements like small town vs. large city, cold vs. warm climate etc. are all perfectly valid factors when looking at programs. You’ll have to live in this place for 4-6 years, after all! · A few quick and random tips: o It can be helpful to contact professors ahead of time to determine research fit etc., but it can also be quite valuable to contact current grad students to get a sense of the program and the environment. o Remember that an important part of professionalization in a Ph.D. program is publication. More than anything, this means that before you go down the road toward application, give some serious thought to whether or not your writing and research inclinations have that kind of potential. And whether or not that’s something you really want to deal with at all. o Also remember that teaching is a huge part of your job, and always will be. If you don’t enjoy teaching (or the prospect of teaching), you’d better really love the other components of your position, because there’s not going to be any getting away from it for many, many years. o It might go without saying, but be very courteous in all of your communications with professors and other graduate students. And that courtesy should be sincere! o Consider the total cost of applications: application fees average about $75, sending GRE scores is $27 (more if you need the subject test), and if you have multiple transcripts, that can tack on another $10. In other words, each application will likely be upward of $100. Given that I recommend applying to at least ten programs, you’re looking at a commitment of over $1000. There ARE fee waivers you can find, however. o Forums like GradCafe are a good way to socialize with fellow applicants, and commiserate with people in the same situation. Just remember to take all advice you see on those forums with a grain of salt. o Finally, there are NO SAFETY SCHOOLS. Just to reiterate, rankings are arbitrary, and almost every program gets ten times as many applicants as they can admit (let alone fund). As a result, you want to look at the best overall fit for you.
  23. What better place to find people to share application anxiety with? I haven't seen another thread like this yet so here we go. Which programs are you applying to? Where are you from? What are your biggest concerns about applications? I'll start. I'm applying to a grand total of two schools (I'm obviously crazy) because I want to be on campus and I have to stay in VA. I'm looking at JMU and Longwood and honestly don't know what my chances are but I'm going to try to be optimistic. Figured I'd start applications early on CSDCAS but maaaan this process is waaay slower than I had anticipated! I'm so excited for grad school though!

    2018 Trauma Psychology PIs?

    I thought I'd post the top of my list of potential mentors whose work is relevant to my interest in contextualizing experiences of traumatic stress (fairly broad). I applied for Fall 2016 matriculation in PhD programs. I currently attend University of Denver, in their child and adolescent clinical psych track. Not sure if the table will be formatted okay-- I'll post a list afterward if it's wonky. Obviously this is not an exhaustive list of folks working in Trauma, more people who had interests strongly in line with my own. Feel free to post other trauma-related researchers! Sidenote for folks applying this round, this is an example table of how I tracked all my potential mentors. I vaguely ranked them based on how close the fit was, and only ended up applying to four. Some stuff isn't filled in, but feel free to google them! I'd also mention Jennifer Freyd (University of Oregon; interpersonal and institutional betrayal trauma), who I did my undergrad work with, but I'm not sure she will be taking students-- actually not sure about anyone on this list for the coming application cycle, except Dr. DePrince at DU, who is interested in taking a student this year.

  25. I am applying to English PhD programs. I have a 145 in math, 163 in verbal, and 4.5 in the analytic writing. The math I am helpless in, but I've been told that they don't care about math. I thought I could do a little better on the verbal and on the writing based on practice tests, but under the pressure of the real exam, this might not be true. I am also struggling with the SOP, if anyone has any advice. thank you
