  1. I know there are already similar threads to this one, but I need help making a decision. The things I care most about are housing, transportation, cohort size/relationship, faculty relationship, and opportunities post graduation (and how MGH's extra semester affects this). If you go to either of these, please let me know how your living choice has affected your life in any way and what the majority of students choose to do. I'm not from the Boston area so I'm not familiar with neighborhoods but would love any information on them. I want to know how the cohort genuinely interacts and how t
  2. How good is Boston University's PhD program in Emerging Media Studies? Any insight would be helpful! Thanks!
  3. 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.
  4. starting to think about grad school applications. I am going into my 4th year at a BArch program where I have a minor in history. I have wanted to go into HP for many years but am torn about where to apply. I am looking into Clemson, UMD, BU, and UPenn but would love any inside knowledge about the programs. Also nervous about acceptance rates and what the schools take into account on deciding
  5. 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
  6. 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
  7. 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
  8. Hi! I am new to this site and just created an account, so apologies if I am doing this wrong or posting in the wrong area! I am a rising senior and I am pretty certain that I want to do a masters program in PR and corporate communications wanted to ask if anyone with experience in or knowledge of these programs would be willing to share some insight into your graduate school admissions process. I am looking to apply for the Fall 2018 or Fall 2019 start dates and would love to go to NYU, but am still discovering all of the other top programs (any recommendations or insights into programs w
  9. 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 : ]
  10. Hi! USC M.S. in wireless healthcare technology, and BU just general EE. Couldn't find a lot of information for the wireless healthcare specialization, seems interesting. is it easy to switch track once at USC? Also interested in their Multimedia & creative technology track. I want to learn more signal processing & machine learning and combine with a little biomedical stuff. Also, I don't really know Boston or LA. Which would be better place for finding jobs after? two years is pretty short. Boston feels like has more tech jobs? Idk lol Thanks!
  11. Having many shared sleepless nights about which is best. One provides many clinical courses, while the other provides more field work. I am in Southern California and it pays to go with big names like USC, and or locally with the Cal States. I am single mom and will be doing online program. Any advise about the programs. I noticed people asking the same question but not posting back. I wish this site had more support from students experiences with the programs they selected.
  12. Greetings, I was wondering if anyone would be kind enough to help me understand what might be the differences between art history MA programs of Boston University, NYU (IFA), Tufts, and Columbia. I was accepted to all of them except for Columbia, which I am still waiting on. My primary concern is with the strengths of the programs and I would like to focus on Western pre-modern art and architecture. My first inclinations are towards Columbia and IFA due to program description, location and school notoriety (which I admit is superficial). Tufts and BU are clearly considered to be very
  13. 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
  14. Hi everyone! I was accepted last week into BU's MTS program at the School of Theology. I am beyond excited and know this school is a great fit for me - however, like every other student applying for grad programs, I applied to HDS as well. According to GC and Google info, they don't release their admissions until March 15-16, which is a week after my acceptance deadline for BU. I asked my current professor if I should accept the offer - he suggested i accept BU and later reject if I get into HDS, but I feel that asking for an extension would be better since I would still possibly want to
  15. What are the general reputations of BU and Northeastern for a PhD in theoretical computer science? Is one significantly better than the other? I like them both so its a tough decision... and funding is nearly identical
  16. Got accepted into both programs for PhD and I'm having a hard time deciding between the two. Anyone has any comments, opinions? BU program is guaranteed funding for 5 years while Dartmouth is not. In terms of the biology program Dartmouth has a higher ranking and professors are very approachable. BU is in Boston and I love that city but Dartmouth is only about 2 hours away.
  17. I've been accepted to a multitude of schools, and right now am between Boston University, Harvard and Columbia. BU gave a generous package, and I am likely going to obtain a GA. I have not heard about funding from Harvard. For any current BU Counseling students out there-what are the best/worst parts of your program? Coming from a non-psych background, I don't have much support with choosing schools. I'm doing my emphasis in school counseling, and I love the research professors are doing and the positive psych/strengths emphasis. I'm just not sure what the job outlook is, and a little wor
  18. So this round of applications has been widely unsuccessful for me.I received 5/7 outright rejections. Was unofficially wait-listed (i think) at UC Davis, but rejected after the first week of April. My final hope is BU's MCBB program at which I am waitlisted. Even after the April 15th, according to admissions I am still on the waitlist and a decision has not been made on my application. They say they expect to make a decision in a week or two, but that's what they always seem to say and the drag is just becoming quite draining emotionally. I have already been making other plans, applying for RA
  19. Hi everyone, I’m hoping you all could give me some advice. I’m deciding between two unfunded MA programs for English, BU and UIC. (I know how financially irresponsible this is, for all you in that camp.) BU is a 1 year program, and UIC is a 2 year program. They actually run about the same in tuition costs. BU has offered me a $5,000 scholarship, but compared to the total cost of tuition, it is a drop in the bucket. Does anyone have some sort of formula to weigh pros and cons of schools? I attended BU’s open house, and I really love the feel of the campus, and I think I would be
  20. Hey everyone, I'm trying to decide between BU and Emerson. Is either a better program? Any distinguishing characteristics between these two schools? I know that Emerson is cheaper but in terms of differences between the actual programs.
  21. Hello all-- I’m choosing between two counseling Master’s programs. One is accredited by CACREP (Boston University) and one is not (University of Miami). Both have offered generous funding, so now I’m trying to weigh the pros and cons of each. BU pros: CACREP accreditation makes it easier to transfer licensure between states later on CACREP accreditation makes it possible to work at the VA, something I’m potentially interested in doing The program is the only one of its kind within a medical school, so clinical opportunities and training are unique and appeal to my background in s
  22. Anyone hear back from them yet besides early admissions? I submitted my app January 20th.
  23. Hello! I've received offers from NYU and Boston University, both programs are master in Piblic Relations. Meanwhile I am waiting for the IMC program of Northwestern U. As a graduate student majoring in foreign languages and without PR related working experience, I intent to gain some professional experience while studying. Personally I don't think Northwestern wants me because they usually require experience; and I am not confident enough to choose its IMC program because a lot of courses are about finance and statistics. Boston U is good, but when talking about internships an
