  1. Hi! Has anyone that apply for LSE MSc Behavioral Sciences for this year (2022) heard back from the program? Especially those that apply in late Jan 2022 Thanks!
  2. Hi all! I could really use your help here. I was luckily admitted to these 3 programs, but im really torn onto which one will be a better fit for my interests. The right MPP would help me get trained on social impact and advanced quantitative skills of course; but specially for a behavioral science career from a public policy point of view( eg : nudge units, behavioral architects, Ideas42, worldbank's eMBeD , etc.) I care mostly about the public policy skills, but i would be so happy to find a match of both interests. Important info: International student, tuition will be sponsored by my current employer, love meeting new people/friends. THANKYOU so much in advance. PS: I know HKS is the best fit for all of this, but didnt get in
  3. I have a very good Statistics Library of books to find a good home. Many collectibles, many series, eg McGraw Hill Psych and Stat; I would like to have someone make them a good home. Would need to pick up as shipping would be expensive. Upper mid west location. Please contact me if you want a wonderful library of great texts and reference books. Thanks Joe, retired prof/admin.
  4. Hi guys, For some time I have been reflecting on my decision to apply for a postgraduate degree. I have a MSc in Management & Policy Analysis (Holland) and I have been a visiting scholar in Epidemiology at University of Cambridge. At the end of the studies I worked in development (World Bank) and public health ( ECPC), focusing on monitoring &evaluation of behavioral interventions in health care. As I would like to move forward I realize I need to hone my skills in quantitative analysis, preferably in econ, and in behavioral science. Given that there are no behavioral economics programs in the US (I am considering US, as I may get financed) I was thinking that may be my best shot is in health economics and try to combine it with courses in behavioral science. Another option would be to apply for a program in management or economics. For the latter I don t think I have high chances of getting in. Overall, my interest is to design and evaluate behavioral change interventions preferably in health care. I would very much appreciate your advice on steps I should take, questions I should ask myself, general opinion on career prospect, programs I should consider, general experience in such programs.
  5. I am majoring in Child Protection and Juvenile Justice. I am getting a very good GPA, but I haven't taken the GRE test yet. I plan to take that in the coming months, before the summer when I start applying to grad schools. Yale is my Ivy League that I really want to go to. I'm attracted to the campus, the curriculum, everything about the school stands out to me. Don't get me wrong, I am also applying to other Ivies for grad school, but this is the only one that I would have to apply for public health. I got my AA in psychology and was going to do behavioral science at my current university before I switched to my current major of CPJJ. Social and behavioral sciences would be my closest thing to my current major but I'm unsure if they will take me because of my field not relating well to public health. I can get some public health jobs that can pertain to behavioral sciences, but I'm not sure if I should also have job experience related to social work and child welfare. I'm really confused on if I can correlate these two majors or not. I feel like they can be, but I'm not sure how to do it in a way that doesn't make me feel like I'm wasting my time. I am very happy with my current major and am learning a lot, but when I go to grad school I want to build on my skills more, not feel like I'm starting something totally different and not like it as much. If any current Yale MPH students can help me out with this, I would really appreciate it. I am very worried that they won't accept me due to differences in degree pursuits and majors, but if I could go to Yale, it would mean a lot. If I could get into any Ivy, it would mean a lot, but Yale is my top choice. Thanks for the help guys
  6. Hello everyone, Has anyone heard any decision results from URI's Behavioral Science PhD Program (post Meet The Area Day 'interview') as of yet? There is also no update on the gradcafe survey site: http://thegradcafe.com/survey/index.php?q=university+of+rhode+island&t=a&o=p Apparently the results should be out a long time ago: http://www.uri.edu/artsci/psy/behsci_admissions.shtml I have not heard ANYTHING from them since Meet The Area Day... Any input will be greatly appreciated - I'm contemplating on calling them. Should I?
