  1. April 15 is right around the corner and I’m freaking out. I cut down my choices to two schools, but I’m having a tough decision between the two. I was admitted to George Washington University for their Media & Strategic Communications program and Boston University for their Public Relations program. For GWU they offered to cover up to 7.25 credits for the academic year. When I emailed for more information, they gave me this explanation: “Award will be for 7.25 credits for the academic year. Tuition at GW is charged per credit hour and the cost per credit varies by program. Your a
  2. I've had an unusual experience regarding my application to Boston University for their chemistry PhD program. I did not receive any information about the status of my application till mid February, when a PI of my interest contacted me asking for a Skype interview. They never followed up on my reply though, even after a reminder, and so I never had that Skype interview. Then at the end of February I got an email from the grad office saying I was on a small waitlist, stating that they could only make a limited number of initial offers and that they didn't have space for me in that initial round
  3. Hopefully the cohort isn’t so small that none of you are on this site. Let’s get a thread going for BU Pharmacology PhD students entering in the Fall of 2020. Who’s pumped???
  4. Hello, I'm currently a fresh graduate student in economics from reputable university in Indonesia. I have 3.48 GPA, scored 7.5 on IELTS, and scored 164 in GRE quant and 161 in my verbal. I have several working experiences, as teaching assistant for Introduction on Microeconomics, internship at a local social enterprise and currently I'm a research assistant at independent think tank. I seem to have chance for not relying on financial aid (self-support). My biggest consideration is time, as I have to start my master degree by 2020. I plan to apply into several universities, but I str
  5. I am a prospective MSW student applying to the Boston College and Boston University Clinical program and considering the Children, Youth, and Families concentration. I have been doing my research, but would love any insights, options, or thoughts on the pros and cons of each program. Why one program over the other? Which one has a better field placement program? Which one is more diverse and practices cultural humility? Thanks in advance! In solidarity, A Fellow Prospective MSW
  6. Hi everyone, I'm a senior student from China and I received my decision letter that I'm on the waitlist of Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering at Boston University in Jan. Do you know are there any chances for me to be admitted? Is there anyone you know who was put on the waitlist and then be admitted? I really hope I could go there! Thank you!
  7. Hey Y’all. I’ve been accepted into the MSW programs at Penn and Boston University and i’m Curious if there are others out there who are trying to decide between the two programs? I haven’t visited either, and wondering if I should go next week. Thanks!
  8. I was accepted to both but could not visit because I am international. Which school should I choose and why?
  9. Hi All! I'm pretty torn between grad schools right now and was hoping that some of you could possibly provide me with your opinions. I've been accepted to Columbia University, Northeastern University, Boston University and waitlisted to MGH. I am leaning towards medical speech pathology, so a big factor in my decision are the surrounding hospitals. I am originally from NY so I think right now the major issue is deciding what city I want to pursue my Masters in. I've always loved Boston but I'm not sure if starting this chapter in an unfamiliar setting is the best choice. If there are any
  10. Finally I'm going to make choice between MA in Emerging Media Studies in Boston University and MS in Digital Social Media in USC. I'm a Chinese student with a BA degree in Communication, and this is my first time to go study abroad. If anyone knows anything about the universities, the programs, and their graduate outcomes, I'd really appreciate it if you can leave some comments and suggestions to me. Thanks so much!
  11. Has anyone applied to Boston University for the MSW program for fall 2019? Have you heard back??
  12. Hi everyone! Does anyone have any insight into any of these schools specifically for their CSD programs? I am an out of field applicant and still need to complete most of the prereqs. I know TC and Emerson both have summer programs to complete them. I most likely want to work in a school, early intervention, or a private practice with kids. All of these schools would end up being about the same cost, with Emerson a bit cheaper but not by much. Let me know if you have any insights, or just if you've been accepted and may be attending 😊 I'm so excited to meet everyone!
  13. Has anyone heard back about date/time of their individual interviews?
  14. Hey guys, I am trying to decide between Columbia and Boston University for BME PhD and I would appreciate any input from other BME grads or prospective students! For reference, the stipends are pretty comparable, but Columbia has direct match whereas Boston has a rotations program. Does anyone know which place has better success for academic vs industry employment and what the reputation is at both locations?
  15. Hi everyone. I got into both of these and would like to know the general perception of both of these programs. I would love to have comments on - job fairs, ease of finding internship, and overall reputation on both the coasts. My preference would lie in the program that is best revered by industry and would help me with finding internships during breaks. Thanks you!
  16. I received an offer from Boston University to work on my Mechanical Engineering PhD recently, and am seriously considering accepting it. They offered five years worth of funding and a promising advisor to work for. I'm posting this because I'm interested in what opinions people have about the school. Are there any red-flags about the engineering graduate program, or the school in general, I should be aware of? Anyone else here have experience with their funding for PhD students
  17. Hey folks, I've been accepted to both Emerson and BU for an M.S. in Journalism. BU is crazy expensive, and the scholarship I was offered in my admissions letter covers ~23% of the total tuition cost. Emerson is significantly less expensive and my scholarship offer covers about 20% of the total tuition cost. When I leave Emerson, I'll be in significantly less debt than if I go to BU. There are pros and cons to both schools, and I've weighed them heavily. I attended BU's COM grad open house this past weekend, and I was genuinely unimpressed. Instead of giving us a full slate of Journ
  18. I'm trying to decide between M.S. Biostatistics at Columbia and M.S. Applied Biostatistics at Boston U. The appealing thing about Boston U is that the program is only one year, as opposed to two at Columbia. Anyone familiar with the program at Boston U and if it would be better to tough it out for the extra year at Columbia for the benefit in the long run? Thanks!
  19. Hi all, I have recently been admitted to three programs: Georgetown's MA in Conflict Resolution, Boston University's MAIA in Diplomacy, and LSE's MSc in Conflict Studies. I cannot for the life of me decide which school would be the best fit, so I'm hoping that someone here has either attended one of these schools or can offer insight into which program sounds the most compelling. Here is what I know so far: Georgetown Tuition: ~ $50k USD per year for a 2 year program Great career centre/job prospects post-grad Perfectly located for internships/careers in diplomacy
  20. What are the job prospects for MS in CS international(Indian) students at MET college, Boston University? What is the average salary? What are the chances of getting into big 4? Add other params if you feel like. Note: I understand that it is the person's skills that determines the company but we know how important the ecosystem is.
  21. Hey folks, what are your thoughts on BU's history PhD program in European History? Been looking up the rankings and although BU is a strong (if not absolute top-tier) school, I'm not seeing the most favorable information about its rankings. Also, the department's website lists alumni and their post-PhD record doesn't seem terribly strong. Wanted to see if people here had some insights into the program and thoughts on prospects upon graduation. Finally, taking everything into account, is it worth going there if it is funded?
  22. Hi everyone, I am an international student. I completed my BS in pre-med in Boston and I am on the way to the MS in Bioinformatics. Since I did not take GRE, I only applied: Georgetown University, George Washington University, John Hopkins University, Northeastern University and Boston University. So far, I got accepted by Northeastern and JHU. I am still waiting for BU's offer. I do not know which school I should choose among BU, JHU and NEU. 1. John Hopkins University has better reputation, but I am kind of not willing to leave Boston because of my girlfriend. Of course, I am still
  23. Which school has a better MPH program, George Washington University or Boston University? Specifically which school has better Community Health and Global Health programs? Thanks!
  24. Stuck in the middle. Really like the clinical program for Boston, but Columbia is a huge name. Boston is a 3 year program and you can continue to work and volunteer Columbia you cannot work, the work-load is very intense. Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated. I wish there was s forum where current students would chime in on there experiences. I see a lot of people posting but no actual peer to peer support thereafter.
