  1. Hello out there! Any other fall 2018 Brandeis students on gradcafe? I just got into the Ancient Greek and Roman studies masters program today and will most likely be going - dependent on hearing back from one school. I’m planning a trip to visit the campus soon but would love to hear from anyone that has already been. If you have any recommendations for places to visit or potential neighborhoods to live in, I’d love to hear them! Looking forward to hearing from my fellow Brandeis students ?

    Brandeis Anthropology

    Does anyone have any experience with studying sociocultural anthropology at Brandeis? I've been accepted into their joint MA Anthropology / Women's Gender and Sexuality studies program. I'm curious to know of others' experiences or just knowledge of the program.
  3. Hi all! I’ll be attending Brandeis University’s Ancient Greek and Roman Studies masters program this fall. I’ve been out of school for some time and was wondering if anyone who either has been in the program or a similar one, can recommend some “essential” Latin and Greek, as well as general knowledge, texts that I should read before my program begins. I’m doing the Ancient Civilizations track so there should a much smaller focus on languages but I still don’t want to go in completely unaware. Thanks for your help and I’m looking forward to hearing your suggestions!
  4. Hey, As a Fulbright candidate, I was advised by my IIE Placement Officer to apply to the MA in Sustainable International Development (Heller School for Social Policy and Management at Brandeis University, link: http://heller.brandeis.edu/sustainable-international-development/index.html). I read that they are very strong at social policy but I was thinking to concentrate more on the economic/quant part of development (as Harvard MPA-ID). I would like to know about of this program, so everything that you can tell me is going to be great! (focus, quant skills, average GRE, scholarships, class size, career path, etc). Finally, I attached a link to my description for more information: https://forum.thegradcafe.com/topic/23492-the-am-i-competitive-thread-read-me-before-posting/?do=findComment&comment=1058521623 Thanks!!
  5. HEY GUYS!!!!!!

SINCE WE ARE ALL NERVOUS. If you have applied or planning to apply for regular decision you are welcome too!! ALSO YOU ARE WELCOME TO DISCUSS ANY OTHER IR SCHOOLS THAT YOU APPLIED OR PLANNING TO APPLY!!!!! WE COULD ALL JUST BE SUPPORTIVE AND INFORMATIVE TO ONE ANOTHER HERE!!! GOOD LUCK GUYS!!!!!
  6. Hey all! I have gotten a lot of positive responses for grad school and I am a fortunate position to have options. While I am still waiting on responses from a few more schools (University of Minnesota and University College London), I would like to hash out some of my current choices. I have been accepted to both Brandeis and Syracuse. Brandeis has offered me a 60% tuition scholarship that can be renewed during the 2-year program, whereas Syracuse has offered me a $36,000 scholarship for the 2017-2018 school year. Brandeis is obviously the more expensive choice here, but which program would be overall more beneficial to entering the humanitarian aid/social development career track? Brandeis is an official international development Master's, whereas I would have to gain a concentration in international development and humanitarian aid at Syracuse. Syracuse has a required two semesters off-campus, international internship requirement, while Brandeis has it as a second-year option (and is often done domestically). Can anyone provide a secondary insight?
  7. Hey - has anyone heard from Brandeis' NEJS department yet? I applied for a PhD in NEJS for Fall 2017.
  8. So, a little background first: My undergrad degree is in English, but I realized (after it was too late to change) that I'm actually interested in computer science and linguistics (thus Computational Linguistics). So, I'm going for a Master's degree in CL. My GPA is great and my GRE scores are pretty ok, but I'm applying to schools for a field I have zero background in. I've been accepted to Indiana University (Bloomington) and University of Colorado at Boulder. I haven't heard from Brandeis yet. I'm not getting funding from either, but I didn't really expect it, since I have no background in this field. I'll be paying for school with loans as I'm not at all wealthy. My question is, which school has a better reputation in the field? Boulder is where my home and my boyfriend and friends are, so logistics-wise, CU is the easiest choice, and I've heard from a few people that it's a good school for CL. Also, there's a great start-up tech scene here, so it may be easier to find an internship/job in the industry. Google has an office here, and while I don't really expect to have a chance, it's a secret wish of mine to work there (and one of their guys told me they do hire Computational Linguists). Indiana has a dedicated Computational Linguistics MA degree, as opposed to CU's Human Language Technology certificate. I have heard that Indiana has a better reputation in Linguistics, but I don't know that for sure, and I want to work more in the Computer Science side of things, anyway. Indiana might also end up costing less, even at out-of-state tuition rates for the first year. But, the obvious cons are that I know no one there and am not sure of the opportunities for internships, etc., and I'd have to leave my boyfriend. It feels more risky as a choice. There are professors at both schools who are doing things that interest me, so looking at the faculty has not been too helpful. I don't know what my chances are for funding at either school, and tuition is looking similar (~18-20,000) for both. I'd like to hear opinions on Brandeis as well, on the chance I might get in there, too (though I probably can't afford it). I want to work in industry ultimately, but I'm very tempted by a Ph.D if I could do some interesting research and get funded. Stanford would be my dream school for that, but I'll try to be realistic... I'm the first person in my family to go to grad school, so I kind of don't know what to expect, or what I should prioritize. Thanks for any input you can give about the relative merits of these schools!

    Brandeis' PhD Programme in English

    How does the English PhD programme in English ( particularly Victorian Studies) at Brandeis compare with others? I looked through their website and found it interesting... but I would like to have other people respond to this... I am an international student, and it is a little difficult to place all these schools in perspective. I am aware of the problems involved in the ranking system.. i am looking for a general response to how the programme is thought of...
