  1. Have you guys received your official letter yet? Query for international students: Have you received your I-20?
  2. Between Brown Biotechnology (Master) and Northwestern Biotechnology (Master), what should I choose?
  3. Hey Y'all, For those of you who applied to Brown University's Watson Institute of Public Affairs' MPA program 2018 Have you heard anything back with regards to admission status and funding? I applied during the regular decision deadline (February 23, 2018) and I have yet to hear back from them. This despite that the program stating admission decisions would be sent out in Mid March. Should I attempt to contact the department regarding the status of my application or should I wait it out? I believe the website states April 15th is the commitment to accept admission deadline (THIS SUNDAY) Is this a bad sign that I have not heard back yet? Any insight would be appreciated Thanks!
  4. Hi all, I recently got an offer of admission to both Brown University's MS in Biostatistics, as well as to Georgetown University's program. Brown offered me a scholarship which would bring my total tuition cost for the program to be $31,000 cheaper than Georgetown's (Georgetown's letter of admission did not include any mention of financial aid), which is great. However, I am not sure which of these two is the better program. Both are great universities, that goes without saying. But on one hand, I keep reading that Brown's School of Public Health is unranked, that the program is still relatively new and so on. And I cant really find many rankings or much information about this program outside of Brown's website. I'm sure that Brown being an Ivy and all, the program is not horrible but nontheless, I'd obviously rather spend the extra money to go to a program that would maximize my chances of getting employed shortly after graduation. On the other hand, whenever I check the gradcafe's admission results for biostatistics, I see 5 pages of results of people who applied to Brown's PhD and/or MS biostatistics programs, vs. only 5 results for Georgetown.. Also, it seems like Georgetown's curriculum is more heavy on the epidemiology part (which I like, as my specific interest would be in cancer epi and public health), as opposed to Brown. In addition to all this, Georgetown has an internship/practicum element to their curriculum whereas Brown doesn't, as far as I can tell. While I am aware that I am in a very privileged position to pick between two outstanding schools, it is still very difficult to make a decision and I've been dwelling on this for the past couple of weeks now with no answer. Basically, if money wasn't a big factor in the equation, I would choose Georgetown (outrageously expensive) but since Brown would significantly slash my total costs, I am in this pickle. Anybody have any suggestions or advice? Any opinions/thoughts would be appreciated. Thank you!
  5. Anybody else here applying to Brown? I'd love to meet other hopefuls! I'm applying to the RCT program. What about you?
  6. Hello, I am a student from India. I have a three years bachelor's degree and due to a lot of reasons zero research experience. This pretty much disqualifies me from any really good Ph.D. programs. Furthermore, due to some really unfortunate events I have had to take two years off. This lead me to conclude that the best option for me was to apply to master's programs. While a few programs have funding, most don't. I had applied to Brown assuming I wouldn't get in, however, I did. The estimated cost for one year is $78000. This is obviously extremely high. I am curious as to a whether a master's from Brown is worth that cost. I have no student debt so far, I had aided undergraduate education. I also am considering it because I can apply for the Ph.D. program in December/January and because I am doing my master's there I may have a better chance? If you have any questions let me know. Hope this explains my situation. Should I go? Is it worth it?
  7. Hi, everyone! I am interested in Medical Anthropology. I noticed Brown has a good handful of professors who specialize in this area. Would anyone be able to give me feed back on their program? Moreover, if you were accepted, would you please share your application process/statement of interest/credentials? I'd very much appreciate it!
