  1. When graduating with a PhD in clinical psychology, does the prestige of your graduate program effect your career in the short and long term? My career goals are centered around academic research with an interest in consulting. I'm wondering if the national reputation of a program (ie. graduating from a school in the top ten vs. top 50) is a significant factor in the trajectory of your career.
  2. Hi all, My pedigree is not great. I did a BA Biblical Studies and am currently enrolled at Talbot Seminary (Biola Univ.) in Southern California for the MA Philosophy. They've managed to have really good placement over the last few years so I'm aiming for a PhD after this. However, in the event that my seminary background shoots me in the foot, would it be a bad idea to just do a second masters degree into a PhD somewhere more prestigious? Thanks!
  3. I have been wondering about other assessments available to grad students to determine best option for a masters. I went for several neurological tests but no real specific career assessment test. Can anyone recommend one?
  4. Hi guys, I am a senior in college pursuing a Bachelor's degree, and I need some advice on picking my career options. I am double majoring in computer science and psychology, and I am looking for a field where I can utilize my knowledge and skills from both of the fields. I have a lot of research experience and am currently considering going to graduate school to study fields like AI or HCI. I am not interested in becoming a professor as of right now, but I enjoy every step of research projects. However, I am still unsure of what exactly I want to do or how I can integrate two separat
  5. I was admitted to SIPA for the MPA in Development Practice and NYU Wagner for the MPA in Public & Non Profit Management & Policy (International specialization) and was fortunate to receive funding from both. I'm aware that it's possible to request additional funding from each school, but as of now I'd be paying ~45k out of pocket for the 2 years at NYU and ~68k for the 2 years at Columbia. With a 22k difference (and this doesn't even include living expenses!), I'd like to know how Columbia's and NYU's programs compare (in terms of academics, internship & career opportunities, netwo
  6. Hello, Recently I applied to a number of graduate program in the humanities. After applying to eight schools, I received an offer in late February for a full funding package, from one of the universities, which seemed rather early to me. This offer came from an advisor, not the actual graduate school - the official letter of acceptance from the graduate school came several weeks later. In the offer, the advisor stated that though I had been offered funding, they would appreciate an answer on whether I would accept the funding as soon as possible. Since this was late February, and I
  7. Hello there! My problem is that I don’t know how I should present myself to adcoms in the statement of purpose and CV when applying to PhD programs in philosophy in the US, Canada, and the UK. Your responses will be greatly appreciated. I believe there are many people in the world who were or currently are in the similar circumstances. As a senior, I wrote a thesis on Plato’s Timaeus. Since then, I’ve been writing articles and sending them out to journals. I even managed to get one of them published in a semi-professional journal, but they were all on the Timaeus. I was hoping my enthusia
  8. Hi, This is my first post on the Grad Cafe. I'm encouraged by all of you guys because now I know that I'm not alone in this hectic time of grad applications. I am writing SOPs for MS/MA in statistics and MS data science. I eventually do want to pursue a PhD though I'm not sure which aspect of the mathematical sciences I want to be specialize in. My question is essentially: 1) What roles (software, data engineer, analyst etc)would MS data science graduates have in the industry? (whether government or commercial) 2) Would I easily have enough prior knowledge to pass qua
  9. Hi, everyone: Just wondering if there are any good resources online or elsewhere for someone to figure out what they're even qualified to do. I ask because I've reached burnout with adjuncting. I've got two terminal degrees with honors from good universities (not that that matters outside of academia) and 8 years experience in higher ed with a couple of years in government (doing human rights advocacy) and church. Because I haven't published a book yet and I don't have a PhD, I haven't had much luck finding a secure teaching job with a sustainable wage, and because I'm not ordained (yet--
  10. I'm currently looking at about 5 different grad schools for an MPP. I keep hearing (and reading here) that I should strongly consider what the career services for each school offer. For a professional degree like the MPP, it will be very helpful to have a strong career office at the school (and alumni group) that help place students in related careers. The thing is - how do I do that? What is the best way to compare or evaluate a school's career services offices? (Do I trust the school and call the admissions office? Or ask current students) If any of you have any experience doing this,
  11. Hi, all. I know this is a looong explanation; please bear with me, because I desperately need advice! **Background: Got BA in Psych, then worked as a community support provider for a year at a MHC for adults with mental illness. Fall 2016, I applied for a MSW program and got in. I've been at school for 4 weeks (I'm no longer at the job). Problem: Up until spring of 2017, which was AFTER my program accepted me, I wanted to be a therapist. I am introverted but (IMO) good at helping people work through their problems, and I generally enjoy doing so. But I often found my MHC job to be in
  12. In the United States it is not uncommon to apply to academic jobs all over the country. Personally, I do not know a single person who limited his or her search to just one state (i.e. Massachusetts). That being said, the language of instruction and the key aspects of academic culture remain the same coast to coast. In comparison, what is the situation like in Europe, particularly Scandinavia and Switzerland? For example, given that the population of Denmark is comparable in size to that of Massachusetts, how does this affect the academic job market? Is it standard practice for PhDs &
  13. I just found out I got a Fulbright for all three years of my phd film program in Scotland! I'm so proud of this opportunity, but I also just got a promotion at my current job in a really great museum. I now get to work with films in a museum. I think i want to work in non-academic sector,/museums, so this is also a great opportunity to keep moving with my career. I think going to school would be great, but i worry about giving up my great job. I can't defer the scholarship nor can I come back to my job. I also just moved in with my girlfriend. What should i do? Thanks!!
  14. Hi to all, Having graduated from one of Turkey's reputable universities in 2010 ( BS Engineering, gpa 2.01), I began to work in sales and marketing departments of corporate companies. Now having worked 5 years full time, I decided to add an mba vision both for myself and my career. I want to ask you which way I should follow? I need your advices. -Can I apply for a grad school such a low gpa? Does it sound logical for admittance? -Should I just prefer only my country Turkey for Mba or does having an Mba from USA or UK get more to my career? -Should I decide the grad school
  15. What are your thoughts on Georgetown Masters in Applied Economics program. I plan on applying to the program but have so reservation about the program. Firstly, the lack of information about the program concerns me. On the university's website all you can find is generic information on the program. The career page is non existent and there isn't even a detailed description of the courses offered. I tried a LinkedIn search for alum which was unfruitful. I tried emailing the director of the program and only got the same generic response. Its as if the university does not care about the prog
  16. I got several official letter in biostatistics phd program. After Ph.D., I hope to continue my biostatistical research as post-doc and professor. I'm wondering the future career in biostatistics after Ph.D. as follow universities. NYU, Miami, Indiana, Arizona, Wisconsin-Madison, South Carolina, Penn State, UC San Diego, University of Florida. The thing is that they are not included in the ranking of biostatistics phd program because those programs are belonging to medical school.
  17. Hello All- I'm working on a K01 application and the career development section. Can anyone recommend a few workshops on research in the field of public health/health sciences. I'd love any recommendations! Anything from qualitative/quantitative research to the public health field! Thanks in advance!
  18. There are thousands of influential research papers that go unread, some are behind paywall, some are hard for non-researchers to read and understand -- besides writing papers, authors are unable to spend a lot of time making that valuable knowledge accessible. Can we help?Come join Stanford Scholar --- a 500 strong community --- learn about latest research topics in computer science, collaborate with people worldwide in a cohesive setup and create short research talks. Anyone can participate, from high school students to PhD students, in any area of computer science or technology. Past partici
  19. Hi everyone. I should preface my situation and aspirations with the fact that I realize the following is most likely a pipe dream. That being said, I have been feeling this way for some time and willing to do whatever it takes to change my current situation. Anyway, here it goes... I am a 29-year-old English teacher living in Massachusetts. I am married and moved here for my wife's job (which is unique). I love living in this area and my personal life is all positive. However, my career has come to a breaking point. I am no longer happy teaching English to middle/high schoolers. I've been
  20. Hi all, Before I jump into my questions, I'd like to give some information on my general background. I am from Turkey, and going to graduate from History department next year, or maybe sooner. I have a major interest in Middle Eastern History, and want to persue an academic career in the field. However, surprisingly so, History departments in my city(Ankara) are not the best in the field. There is a Middle Eastern Studies department in my school which seems to me as the best option to train myself on the field. So, my questions are: 1) Does a Master's degree from Middle Easter
  21. I recently got my Masters in German literature, and am not too sure if I want to pursue a career in academia. I have been working on re-careering by doing unpaid internships that focus on online community management, social media marketing, and community outreach via social networks. I have learned a lot, and have even had some interviews with some decent sized start ups. I was wondering if any of you have had similar situations, are thinking about doing the same, have done it, and what you have experienced. I know it's terrible to plug, but I've also started a little blog about the journey I'
  22. Hi, I got admitted into the MPH Program at the University of Maryland at the Environmental Health. I may have a funding opportunity available through a graduate assistantship to help me during the program. What are job prospects like in the US and Canada for international students? I already have a master of science degree in clinical research and some experience working in public health in India ( development and chronic diseases). Initially I wanted to go for a PhD, but I think doing an MPH at UMD may improve my chances of getting better PhD offers and I might even get a good job offer.
  23. hello! I need some help deciding what to do, or at least hearing from other people, so that I can better inform my own decision I just received an offer to Brown Sociology PhD program. The offer includes full scholarship for tuition, health care, and $2,700 per month stipend. I currently work for the government in Hawaii. I earn 90k, and work in budgeting/financial analysis. It's not ideally what I thought I'd be doing, but it is living on a tropical island and earning good money. But when it is all said and done, I do not like or enjoy my job much. It is just not that fun.
  24. Hi, I applied for MA in anthropology of development at SOAS, Sussex and Cambridge (MPhil in Social anthropology for Cambridge). I got offers from Sussex and SOAS, and waiting for the result from Cambridge. If given an offer for Cambridge, I would still be at a loss which one to pick out of those 3 school; I lack info, because I am Japanese and cannot go see the school and students there. In order to decide which school, I need to know: where are past MA students of SOAS (anthro of development) now and what do they do? Many of Sussex's past students are working as development prac
