  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. 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
  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. 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?
  5. 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
  6. 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!
  7. 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
  8. 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
  9. 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?
  10. 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

  14. 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
  15. 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
  16. 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
  17. 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
  18. Hi! So last February of 2019 I was waitlisted to Marymount University's forensic and legal psychology master's program! I was told I was in the top third out of 40-50 people. I have been told by one person that had applied to this program that the year previous to that she was waitlisted and that for 2019 she got admitted. Do you think the chances would be that good for me as well? I am definitely re applying this year and I just hope the same outcome goes for me, where I was waitlisted last year and then admitted this year. For this particular program, they say they get around 20
  19. I am applying for my MFA in creative writing. my grades are great and i've been told I have a strong and impressive portfolio but gaining entrance to a creative writing MFA program is very difficult, competitive, relative, and highly selective so I am not a shoo-in anywhere. For one of my graduate applications I submitted the application but put off submitting the fee and then my application status said my fee was waived but there was no explanation. is this normal? does it mean anything? another school I applied to sent me a hand written letter saying they are "thrilled" I submitted
  20. Can someone help me out to critique my SoP. It is very urgent Symmetry breaking in quantum mechanics is an important concept used to characterize the phases of matter. Crystals break translational symmetry, magnets breaking time-reversal and rotational symmetry, and superconductors breaking gauge symmetry are all different states of matter. The symmetry of crystal structure leads to various electronic Bloch states in a material on which the entire band theory of non-interacting fermions is established. Going through the recent advances in the band theory, I was intrigued by a diffe
  21. Hi prospective Political Science Ph.D. students! We thought we’d create a post to share some information our (somewhat little-known) Ph.D. program. Feel free to ask questions and we’ll reply, or please feel free to email Dan de Kadt (Assistant Professor) or Courtenay Conrad (Associate Professor and Director of Graduate Studies). We’d love to talk to you more about our program. The mission of the Ph.D. program in Political Science at UC Merced is to push forward the boundaries of the discipline and train graduate students to produce sophisticated modern empirical and theoretical research.
  22. Hi! I am applying to the master's for general psychology at CUNY's Hunter and City College, but I am confused about the difference between the two programs? I've seen Hunter College mentioned often in my search, but City College seemed more obscure. As someone with little insider knowledge, it's hard for me to understand if there's a big difference in reputation, types of research, quality of education, admission rate, etc. I ultimately want to do a PsyD or PhD in clinical psychology, but I didn't didn't take any psychology courses in undergrad. Any advice would be appreciated!
  23. Hi! I am in the process of getting a Permanent Residence visa in Canada. It should happen within the next several months. I know for sure that I'll want to get into a Masters (in order to do a Phd afterwards). I do have already a (coursework) MEng in Mechanical Engineering from Texas A&M. I am eager to start applying before the PR visa process finishes, in order not to waste time (given that I would be actually applying for Fall 2020 and, by then, in all probability, I should already have my PR). Is that feasible? In other words: how long within the process of application for enrollment i
