  1. Hello! This is a forum for all of the applicants applying to clinical psychology MA/PhD programs in Canada to begin in Fall 2021 (applications will be due in Fall of 2020)! Hope this is useful for many and good luck to all :)!
  2. Hi all! I wanted to start a thread for prospective DrPH students applying before Dec 1 2020 for 2021 matriculation. I was browsing similar threads from previous application cycles and thought this would be helpful! I’m planning to apply to Johns Hopkins distance DrPH program. -MPH -East coast -I’ve worked in hospital epidemiology for 10 years, currently in a leadership role. Nice to meet you!
  3. Salut! I know it's pretty early, but I thought I would get the thread started for the next application cycle. I haven't narrowed down my list of schools, but I study eighteenth-century literature, culture, and political thought with emphasis on trade and commerce. Excited to see who else is applying and what you want to research! 😊
  4. Hello! Just saw the clinical/counseling thread and thought to start a forum for all applicants applying to social/personality psychologyPhD programs (app due in Fall 2020)! Working on my list of schools now, hopefully will post that by the end of May. I'm mostly interested in exploring subjective well-being and quality of life, with several approaches currently in mind - psychometrics - how to measure these traits accurately (including cross-lang, nation, culture) and efficiently self-regulation goal and meaning in life emotional regulation and stress-coping (a bi
  5. Hello everyone, this is my first time applying to graduate school, and I'm anxiously awaiting for the decisions being sent out for CSUN. I know with this whole Covid thing, I don't know if things are being done differently. All I read from my email when I submitted my application is that decisions will be sent out from 3-6 weeks or more. Are they still conducting interviews this year?? Has anyone received a request to interview? I know that this will take time, but I just really want to know if I got into CSUN! lol
  6. 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
  7. Anyone have information on when decisions go out for MSW programs (Fall 2021) ..applied to Virginia Commonwealth University Radford University University of South Carolina Ohio State University of Michigan
  8. I saw that someone created the 2021 neuroscience admissions topic around this same time last year, so I figured it's never to early to start preparing for the 2022 cycle. Hope we can help each other throughout this process, and best of luck to everyone!
  9. 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
  10. Someone made a similar thread last year just to have a separate thread for neuroscience PhD applications for the 2018 cohort. Hopefully it'll help reduce a little bit of the interview/decisions anxiety if we're all in the same boat!
  11. Hi all! I've been stuck home because of a health-related issue, so (in addition to watching a lot of Brooklyn Nine-Nine) I scraped the tables from the Grad Cafe political science results page since its beginning in 2006 and here are a few things I thought I'd share! I'm trying to set up a GitHub page to make the scraping code and data accessible if you guys want to play with it. Disclaimers: I only used data that matches "political science" and "PhD". So 1) these things don't apply to Master's degree applicants, and 2) the data is "biased against" (includes less posts from) Har
  12. Hello everyone, I have received some contradictory advice regarding whether I should mention professors in my SoP. I know that mentioning a few professors can be risky, but I was trying to mention professors who may share my research interests as a way of showing my "fit" and explaining why I chose that program. Of course, I am aware that my fit is mainly signaled by my research interests, but I wanted to say something about the department and program/why I am applying there. I would like to hear your opinion on this.
  13. Hi everyone, hope you all are well. I'm in a sort of precarious situation. I want to apply for MS in CS but I'm not sure which universities I should apply to. Here's the deal: I'm from India and I did my double major undergraduate (from a top tier uni FWIW) in mathematics and electronics and scored a 6.95/10. My grades in electronics courses are pathetic but math courses are fine. After working for two years in the industry, I want to get into a university that will help me get into a research program eventually possibly using my pure maths experience. Thankfully my GRE is alright q: 1
  14. For most M.A. English programs, an academic writing sample of 15-25 pages. Would most programs be okay with 2 samples that add up to 15-25 pages? Or do they really just want one 15 page sample?
  15. Hello everyone! I am a recent admit to a neuroscience/biology PhD program and made a shareable google drive with resources to help people applying for graduate school. I wanted to include a compiled list of profiles of people who successfully got into a graduate program. I have primarily bio profiles and would like to get profiles from other fields. I think this could be very helpful especially to underrepresented students or people from non research intensive schools. If you would like to contribute or be shared the drive please PM me your gmail and I can send you a template/answer any questi
  16. Hello, Is there anyone applying to Canadian universities for a PhD in Health Sciences for 2021 intake? I am a Ghanaian looking to apply for a PhD in Health Sciences, 2021 however all the supervisors i have contacted in my field of interest in five schools are not accepting students. My research areas are HIV, adolescent sexual reproductive health, lower middle income countries. I need some comfort or advise. Thank you
  17. Hey all! This is May, I went to the University of Chicago for undergrad. UChicago has a teacher education program called UTEP that’s been a lot more overt in its commitment to equity and anti-racist practices than most teacher education programs right now, I think. One of their alums also just published an op-ed about how her UTEP coach helped her stopped being the teacher she never swore she’d be — but ended up becoming once she was in the classroom. Does anyone else have experiences like this as a teacher? (She wrote: “It is a very different question to ask, ‘Does every student derserve pati
  18. I spent about 2 months to prepare my MA applications, including asking for letters and GRE prep. I got into a pretty nice program, but sometimes I wonder if spending longer/shorter will change my outcome. Interesting that this was shorter than undergrad application prep, which stretched to a 4 months gruelling process. Just curious: how long did you folks spend to apply to Masters/PhD programs, from research/reaching out to PI to submitting full application package?
  19. Hey all! I haven’t seen a thread like this that is specific to Canada so thought I’d start one. I’ve applied to York, McMaster and UofT for 2020 admission to an MA in polisci. I hope this is an okay number of apps, I know some do a lot more. I’ve also got a few questions if anybody would be able to answer! How are the programs/depts at these unis, how do they compare to each other? York entices me due to it’s supposed left-wing nature but UofT is obviously much more prestigious. I’m unsure as to the quality of the specific programs, I find it’s hard to find info on thi

  23. I know similar questions have been asked, but I wanted to get some advice on my situation. I did my first 60/120 credits at a local college to save some money on tuition. After, I transferred to a top university in my state to complete the last 60 hours of my bachelors. It looks like I will be finishing my degree in Summer '21 and I would like to apply to start my masters in Fall '21. This means I would only have Spring '20, Summer '20, and Fall '20 of major classes at my current institution before I apply for masters programs at the end of this year. How would this look on applications, havin
  24. Hi there, I'm new to TheGradCafe and couldn't seem to find a forum about only California / online schools, so I thought I'd start one to get some insight on other people's experience. I applied to San Francisco, San Jose, CSUN (online) and UNR (online) and am waiting to hear back from all of them (although I have an interview scheduled with CSUN)! Is anyone applying or waiting for similar schools? Or know of the timeline by which we hear back from any? Naturally, I'm feeling anxious and eager to hear back, but I know it helps me to hear about other people being in the same boat
  25. Hey Everyone!, a newbie to this forum here! I am a prospective student who will be applying to the MS Computer Science Program at Georgia Tech. I have a unique doubt. I have already submitted a Ph.D. application (ML Ph.D. program) at Georgia Tech. But according to this link (https://grad.gatech.edu/helpdesk/knowledgebase.php?article=7), a student is allowed to have two open applications per semester. So, my first question is that then it should not be a problem if I decide to apply to the MS CS Program, given that I have another submitted application already, right? Second, if I am allowe
