  1. 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!
  2. 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!
  3. I was accepted to both but could not visit because I am international. Which school should I choose and why?
  4. 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 graduate students who are in these programs or simply if you have any insight I would greatly appreciate it! Thank you!!
  5. 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!
  6. Has anyone applied to Boston University for the MSW program for fall 2019? Have you heard back??
  7. 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!
  8. Has anyone heard back about date/time of their individual interviews?
  9. 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?
  10. 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!
  11. 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
  12. 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 Journalism-specific events like the other programs got, most of our weekend consisted of attending the Power of Narrative conference. Don't get me wrong. The Power of Narrative conference was incredible, but I spent a ton of money to attend the Open House and didn't feel like my concerns/questions/best interests were addressed. I haven't had a chance to visit Emerson. This is a huge decision, and I really don't want to make my decision based on price tag alone, but it seems like I'm headed in that direction. Is anyone else dealing with a similar kind of struggle?
  13. 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!
  14. 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 or foreign service Beautiful campus Great reputation in the US Poli Sci/Government circle Very high cost of living Don't know a single person in Washington High crime rate Boston University Tuition: ~$45k USD per year for a 2 year program Offers a summer exchange program for CR students in Geneva & London Prof whose work I have followed for ages teaches a class in my department Boyfriend and best friend from uni both live here (support network + potential roommates) From what I can tell, great student-faculty outreach Very high cost of living Not as internationally acclaimed as the other 2 schools LSE Tuition: £20,904 for 1 year program (roughly $29,176 USD - this is a HUGE draw of this program, as I will be financing my own graduate degree) Great international reputation, would likely open many career doors Uni is in the centre of an exciting city Well located for careers in government/foreign service Insane cost of living From what I've gathered so far, their academics are not as strong as Georgetown Only a 1 year program, so not as much time to network/study/perform research Hands-off teaching style - very little in class time, grades based off one final exam at the end of term Any guidance you can offer on any of the 3 schools would be very much appreciated. HELP ME MAKE THIS IMPOSSIBLE DECISION!
  15. 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.
  16. 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?
  17. 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 considering JHU if I think it's worth. 2. BU is a good school, but BU only provides working experience with their own lab and med school. I am afraid that I would not be able to find a job after graduation without some internships. 3. NEU provides a unique "co-op" internship program (usually paid) intended to prepare for a job after graduation. I hope I can work in biotech-pharmaceutical industries in Boston in the future. Which school will you guys advise me to choose? Thank you so much.
  18. 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!
  19. 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.
  20. Hey! So I'm trying to decide between Boston University and Drexel University for a MPH. I am looking for opinions on the epidemiology programs in particular. I'm pretty sure I will be heading that route. Also, I will be focusing on the LGBT+ community. So if there are any current students that can attest to the quality of education, opportunities for community involvement and real work experience, job outlook, LGBT-friendliness, networking, general satisfaction with the areas.. umm etc. Any and all opinions are welcome : ]
  21. How is student life at the Boston University School of Public Health? Do people feel that they are constantly stressed? How is the workload? Do people feel that they have free time to pursue extracurricular activities?
  22. Hello, I would like this to be a forum for you as an applicant, current student, or alumni of any Boston speech-language pathology programs to post your insight, experience, knowledge or advice comparing the schools. I know I am not the only one who applied to more than one school in the Boston area so I would like help on choosing which one to attend! (I have been accepted to MGH and Northeastern) but this can be for all 4 programs! Some questions include.. Why did you choose X program What kind of training / orientation is there prior to beginning clinic? How are clients paired with students? Do we decide on clinical placement site? Surviving without car? How are classes/workload? challenging but possible? Work life balance? Can you still enjoy boston? Describe typical day?? Do you feel comfortable with supervisors? Asking for help? Classmate interaction?
  23. I was recently accepted into the pharmacology PhD programs at Boston University and Johns Hopkins University. I have until April 15th to decide for both. I am currently studying neuroscience at Duke, and I am interested in going into industry (Pfizer/Biogen/Merc/Novartis) after grad school to work as a pharmaceutical neuroscientist in drug development/discovery for neurodegenerative diseases. Here's some background: I did a summer research program at Boston University last year and fell in love with the campus, environment, PIs and students. My brother has lived in Boston for the past 10 years and I would visit him every summer, so of course I fell in love with the city. Basically, I applied to BostonU hoping that I would get in because if I did, I knew that I would absolutely go there. This was my mindset before I got an interview from Hopkins. Then everything changed because I never in a million years thought that I could get into a school as prestigious as Hopkins. Don't get me wrong, Duke and BostonU are fantastic, exceptional schools, but I think that Hopkins is kind of up there with the Ivy Leagues. Here are the reasons why I didn't immediately say yes to Hopkins after I was accepted: 1) At BostonU, Pharmacology students are able to spend a summer doing research at either Pfizer or Biogen after the first year (which is freaking awesome!!!!), but Hopkins does not have anything like that for their students. Since that is what I want to do in the future, I would love to experience that! 2) There are more PIs (award-winning at that) at BostonU that I could see myself working with in comparison to Hopkins (only 1). 3) A lot of grad students that I know hate that they're so far away from their families and friends, and even though they eventually made new friends, it was tough to do that as well as adapt to a new city and lifestyle. Boston is basically my second home. I know the city like the back of my hand and I know many of the grad/medical students there and still keep in touch with them. 4) 5 of my closest friends have already accepted offers from schools in the Boston/Hartford/NYC area, so we'd all be near each other. Does anyone have any advice for me? I'm sorry this post is so long, but you can probably imagine how difficult this decision is for me. Boston definitely seems like the right fit for me. Both schools have amazing pharmacology programs, although Hopkins' is ranked higher. I think I want to go to Boston, and I don't think I'll regret going there, but it would be so awesome to go to a school like Hopkins. I'd be happy at both places honestly. I guess I just need to get over how prestigious the Hopkins "name" is, because it's making a choice that should've been easy, a difficult one.

    Outside funding?

    Hi! I've just been accepted to my first school (Boston University) for an MA in Sociology, but they don't offer any funding support for master's students. Besides federal aid, does anyone know of some other funding supports, or where to find info on them? I've checked several websites but it's pretty anemic for the social sciences.
