  1. I recently finished the application season (Masters) and have the following acceptances: UCSD, Duke, Columbia, Boston University, Northwesterm These are amongst others (Yale, Berkeley, Cornell, Michigan, UCLA, etc.) however they were either one year or non-thesis programs, or the university's main focus was not BME so I have decided to throw those out. Again if you think that isn't a wise decision please let me know. I have also been waitlisted at Hopkins, and am looking to accept that should I get in. Anyone familiar with these schools that can help me out? I am looking ve
  2. It’s my top choice! I love the social justice orientation of the program. My POI is PTN
  3. Hi! I'm currently a senior at TCNJ. I'm a Psych/Public Health dual major. I'm just going to list some of the things that will hopefully make me stand out, but I'm also going to attach my (really, really rough and in progress so don't judge) CV for more detail and stuff: my gpa is a 3.93/4.0 Phi Beta Kappa Lots of work with diverse individuals due to TCNJ's proximity to Trenton 120 hours in Fall 2017 at a nonprofit in Trenton that works with adolescents of different demographics (LGBTQ, homeless, etc) with emotional and behavioral challenges I've been in a
  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
  5. Has anyone applied to Boston University for the MSW program for fall 2019? Have you heard back??
  6. I'm lucky enough to have to make a choice between both programs (BU vs. Mt. Sinai Icahn School of Medicine for Neuroscience). I would appreciate any help in making this decision. Both programs have great advisors I could work with, the money is about the same, and both are amazing cities (for different reasons). I'm having a lot of trouble deciding. If anyone can offer any advice, anecdotes, or opinions, it would be greatly appreciated. Which school is better for neuroscience? Which school have you heard has a better graduate environment? I'll just choose whatever y'all tell me.
  7. Just was accepted into both programs. From Colorado and interested in Epidemiology. Wondering if a big name program will make a big difference for jobs even though it comes with a higher price tag. Also, wondering if I would get the same education from Colorado even though its a newer program. Any advice is appreciated! Cheers.
  8. Hi, I am an international student. I have been accepted from these 3 universities mentioned in the title. However, I really cannot choose since there are too many parameters involved. Boston: Insanely good money(fellowship) , really good location, decent teachers Purdue: Insanely good teaching(?), High prestige(?), very bad location, decent money Maryland: Very good money(fellowship), RA position with a good advisor, good location Since I am an international, I really would like to know your thoughts about the prestige of these schools and also your experiences about
  9. Hi! I got accepted to the following programs (all one year) and I can't decide! 1. Master of Arts (MA), The Fletcher School, Tufts University 2. Master of International Public Policy (MIPP), SAIS, Johns Hopkins University 3. Master of Advanced Studies in International Affairs (MAS-IA), GPS, UCSD 4. MSc International Strategy and Diplomacy, LSE My interests are IR, strategy, and security. When I consider location, I think UCSD is attractive but Fletcher and SAIS network are strong! LSE also has a very good program. I don't have to worry about scholarships becau
  10. Has anyone here attended or know much about BU's School of Theology & Ministry? I'm looking to apply to their M.Div program next Fall, but I haven't found anyone who really knows much about it. The vibe I've gotten is that its pretty top tier (although not ivy-league tier) for divinity schools/seminaries. I know they have a reputation for providing substantial funding as well, but I haven't learned much besides that. I'm interested in the study of theology/philosophy and would be looking for a program that could increase my chances of getting into a funded PhD program. Any though
  11. I am trying to decide between two MS Biostatistics programs and am wondering if anyone can offer insight. 1. Boston University MS Applied Biostatistics. This is a 12 month (full time) program is in a School of Public Health, but incorporates a research component (500 hours total). 2. Northwestern University MS Biostatistics. This is also a 12 month (full time) program in the School of Medicine. My goal is to work as a data analyst in a hospital or university, with specific interests in clinical epidemiology. Although I’m still open to pursuing a PhD (most
  12. Hi GradChat, I will be starting at Harvard (graduate student) in the fall. I am a female in my mid-twenties and I'm seeking another female student to live with and "apartment search" with together. I'm meeting a realtor in 2 weeks in Boston and I will be searching around the Allston/Brighton/Brookline area, as I'm unfamiliar with the area and I currently live across the country. The search so far has been disheartening. I will be searching for a 2-bedroom apartment and looking to split the costs, as I will be commuting probably every day to campus. My priorities include a location where
  13. 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!
  14. 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
  15. 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
  16. Hi Guys, I was accepted to MGH. I was just wondering if anyone had any off campus housing recommendations in the Boston area, not too far from campus? I'd like something within walking distance. I won't be driving.
  17. 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
  18. 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.
  19. HEY GUYS!!!!!! I THOUGHT IT MAYBE HELPFUL IF I STARTED A THREAD ON IR SCHOOL APPLICATIONS I personally applied for the Early decision FOR FLETCHER THERE ARE COUPLE OTHERS I WILL APPLY AS REGULAR DECISION, we could all wait it out together discuss and so on.

  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. My classes aren't due to start until August 23rd (orientation) and I'll be in Boston. However, I'd like to fly into LA to meet my girlfriend before driving across to Boston to get her car etc. out there and enjoy the road trip! We would take about a week as her job will be starting. My question is this: Can I arrive in LA on my F1 Visa if I'm going to school on the opposite coast? Will customs/immigration be funny about it? Do I have to show evidence of a return flight to the UK say, for Christmas, even though I'm taking part in a 5-year course? Any help would be hugely a
  22. Anyone thinking about attending Northeastern University in Boston? I am from California and am pretty positive I will be attending this fall / would LOVE to connect with others thinking about attending! Also if anyone has any insight on the program or about moving to Boston in general I would love to hear it! I have absolutely no friends or family in the Boston area and am nervous to move so far away from home. Is it easy to make friends in the program and in Boston? Where do students usually live? What are the clinical placements like? Anything helps!!! SO excited
  23. Hello, I am starting a PhD at MIT this fall, I'm international and the process to rent an apartment is very confusing. They ask for huge upfront payments and they say that they would return it after an "application" process. They are also concerned with the fact that I am international, they ask for co signers, proofs of income, I-20s and so on. The thing is that apartments are quickly renting (at least they say so but from what I have seen online that is in fact the case) this time of the year in Boston and of course I don't have my I-20 yet as the university just opened the applica
  24. Hi folks! I've recently got off the fence and accepted HDS' offer. So I'm going to live in HDS area for 2 years. I know this question should go to 'City' forum, but, as you know, that forum got too crowded during this season and only little helpful information is offered at the 'Boston' forum. I'd like to hear from current or former HDS student (or BTI friends) on affordable housing ideas at/around HDS (or general Harvard Area). 1) I plan to move in mid-August, when should I start to look for apartments? I've been searching HU Campus Housing page and Harvard Off
  25. Hi everyone!!! So, I need advice... Please I have been accepted to 5 schools, waitlisted at 2 and rejected at 2 for M.A/ M.S programs in SLP. I made my decision to attend University of Colorado- Boulder at the end of March and sent in my deposit, however, yesterday I found out I was accepted off of Emerson's waitlist!! Now I have to try to decide between the two schools. Can anyone give me any advice, pros and cons?? Both areas are totally opposite of each other! I visited both schools, Boulder for the open house and Emerson after the interview. I really thought I was set on Bo
