  1. I’m a teacher in Chicago Public Schools and am planning on beginning part-time PhD studies next Fall in Ed Policy. I’ve been accepted to the three programs I applied to: Policy Studies in Urban Education (Social Foundations) at University of Illinois - Chicago, —Cultural and Ed Policy Studies at Loyola, and -Curriculum Studies at DePaul. Because I will be part-time, I will be self-funding my studies, but am wondering if there are people who’ve gone through any of these programs - or people who’ve completed programs part-time who could offer advice. I really like both Loyola and UIC’s
  2. Hello, everyone! I know that it's a bit early in the admissions cycle, but I recently submitted my application to Chicago and I started getting excited. Hoping that we can share information about decisions, scholarships, and anxiety as time goes on!
  3. Hi! I just committed to a PhD program in materials science at Northwestern. Are there any other students who will be attending Northwestern in the fall (in any field)? I currently live in Phoenix and will be moving there in August. I'd also be interested in getting to know other students moving to the Chicago area.
  4. Hello! I got accepted to the WSAR track at Emory Religion. Any seniors/religion graduates here? How is the programme? The annual stipend is 31k. I wish to know how rigorous the programme is? How are their placements? My other option is the partially funded Masters in Social Sciences from UChicago. PS I have to make a decision by April 15!
  5. Hi all, Is a score of 307 too low for funding consideration and/or admission to an MPP program? I am not great at standardized tests which is why I am debating retaking it, however, I am not sure I can do that much better. This is the one portion of my application that is causing me anxiety. 5.5 Writing 153 Q 154 V My undergraduate GPA is 3.33 (3.60 in my major) and I will have five years of work experience by the time I enroll. Most of my experience is in private sector within the healthcare industry. Schools I am applying to: Michigan (Ford), Duke (Sanfor
  6. Didn't see a thread for Harris 2018, so I thought I would start one since today is the Early Action deadline! Did anyone else apply Early Action? Chicago is my top choice, so I am crossing my fingers until we hear back in mid-December...
  7. Hi, Can you please share what are your background, your prev school, your GPA, research history, your area of interest, and your application status. It may be helpful for the rest of us. Thanks

  9. Happy Sunday! I am preparing to submit my MPP application at the University of Michigan - Ford School. I am currently finalizing the Employment/Work Experience section of the online application. I was wondering if anyone has any advice on whether volunteer / extracurricular involvement should be included in this section? It seems Ford is primarily looking for paid employment? For additional context, I am almost five years removed from undergrad but have remained fairly active in different boards and nonprofit organizations since that time. This information is included in my resume

  11. Hi all, I'm thinking about applying to Duke (both ThD and PhD), Chicago, and Fuller for a PhD in theology (with an emphasis on theological ethics, political theology, modern theology (19th century European)). I would love to hear feedback from some people with experience regarding my chances for acceptance. I have two major concerns about my credentials, but I'll lay out my profile to provide some context. B.A. in Philosophy from Rutgers University. (GPA 2.0) <-- first major point of concern-- I was NOT in a good place at the time, struggling with depression and probably generall
  12. Hello all! I have been accepted to UIC for the PhD in Community Health Services and likely will be attending. Has anyone else been accepted, is thinking of attending, or is currently attending? I am going to the admitted students day on March 23, but do not know if that is just Public Health. I thought I would start a strand, regardless of discipline (I tried one in the Public Health section), to get to know people and/or see what their experiences here have been. Plus when we get down to it, things like what part of town are you going to live in, etc. Hope to hear from some pe
  13. I am trying to decide between which two Biotechnology programs to attend in the fall. The first program is the NYU Biotechnology and Entrepreneurship Program which is great because of its interdisciplinary curriculum in both biotechnology and business. They also offerered me a generous scholarship. On visiting the campus and speaking with faculty it seems promising. I was selected for an additional scholarship and feel like the financial aid office is forthcoming with working with me to cover tuition costs. The research areas are good with opportunities to do research at the renowned memorial
  14. Who's applying to University of Chicago SSA for Fall 2018? Anyone applying to the new advanced standing program? Any acceptances, funding info? Good luck everyone!
  15. Hi everyone, I've recently discovered this forum and have been obsessed with it for days, which is good and bad because I learn so many useful things or see reassuring advice, but I also worry about getting to excited and hopeful and having my heart broken by being rejected. I am an undergraduate senior at the University of Illinois at Chicago. My major is psychology, minor is sociology and I've applied to 5 MSW programs for the fall of 2018. UIC's Jane Addams College of Social Work, Depaul University, Loyola University Chicago, the Institute for Clinical Social Work, and lastly the
  16. Hi Guys, Long (long) time lurker first-time poster here. Any input will go a long way in helping me decide which program is best suited to my personal situation. I am an Indian applicant looking to move to the US somewhat long-term . I am a lawyer by training and since graduating from law school I have worked as a policy professional for the past 3 years in not for profit thinktanks in India. My focus areas have been access to health, cybersecurity and judicial reforms, but I am sector and subject agnostic as I enter grad school. I have received admits from the following sch
  17. Does anyone know when Chicago sends out responses for second round applicants to the MAPH? Is it all at once or are admissions rolling?
  18. Hey everyone! I've been offered admission to UChicago's PhD program in political science (IR) and will be attending! Has anyone else been accepted and thinking of attending? I'd love to get in touch with some other people who had been admitted, even if they're in other programs!
  19. Hello, With the April 15th deadline for decision at GW fast approaching, I have been facing a lot of stress in deciding between two programs for IR. I was accepted into the IR and Latin America and Hemispheric Studies program at the elliot school and also received admission to Uchicago's Committee on International Relations. I was able to attend an online admitted student session for the Elliot School in addition to a campus visit day last summer- I came away from both of these events feeling very encouraged and amazed by the vast resources and opportunities Elliot has to offer, and have
  20. I got into the MS Biostatistics programs at UT SPH, UIC(University of Illinois at Chicago). Unfortunately, both no funding. I need help deciding which one to choose.

  21. I was offered an admission from IIT Masters of science in Finance I am hesitating to enroll in MSF. What is better?? and Why is it better??
  22. Hi everyone, Making decision is a tough thing. So I'm asking questions to you, and if someone helps me, I will appreciate it very much! I major in mathematics and now apply to PhD programs in statistics. Now I have offers from the University of Michigan and the University of Chicago, and both of them are with full funding. I think both of them are attractive, so I'm very struggling now... My career plan is to be in academia. My current research interest is about machine learning and statistical learning. But to be honest, I'm not quite sure about whether I will maintain this interest
  23. Hey y'all! I just recently got the recent of my scholarship package from UChicago, and I just have some questions about cost of living and tuition. I know that whenever I college posts its overall tuition, it is more of an average estimate. With that being said I received $25,900 in scholarships, $4,860 for Work Study, $20,000 in unsub loans, and $27,769 in gradplus loan. I obviously do not intend on taking out all of those loans, but I also am not as afraid of taking out loans as most people are. Do y'all think that these are good numbers to have as far as funding is concerned? Also I f
  24. Hello, all! I am in desperate need of advice. I applied this cycle to 9 PhD programs in Public Policy and was rejected from all 9. While this is largely speculative, I believe my biggest weakness in terms of my apps was my lack of quantitative/math/econ training (qualitative BA and less than stellar GRE score of 156). Aside from that, strong undergrad GPA from UC Berkeley, senior honors thesis focused on policy, 1.5 years of research/evaluation experience in the industry, 2 years of RA work for 2 professors. I now have the opportunity to complete an MA and hopefully compensat
  25. Hi! Has anyone applied to the Committee on Social Thought this year? Any news?
