  1. Hi all, I've survived my graduate school application process for School Psychology Specialist. I've done all of my interviews, gotten a few rejections already, one acceptance in the bag. While I wait to hear from my other schools, I'm wondering if there is a website out there that can tell me the quality of the programs that I applied to? Not just how they rank in their state, but ratings on the quality of the curriculum and the worth of the degree. I don't want to attend a program and then find out there is difficulty in being hired. When I look these programs up, I either get websites w
  2. hey everyone, i am an undergraduate student who's about to graduate this semester with a B.S in chemistry. I will be attending graduate school this fall for chemistry Phd and I've been debating between three different schools to attend, Stony Brook, Boston University, and Michigan State University. I was wondering if I can get some advice from which school would be the best option for me and my situation. First, my research of interest is materials chemistry, specifically within electrochemistry/nanoscience for energy production. For Stony brook, the faculty I'm really interested in do re
  3. If you were accepted to Rockefeller's PhD program in biosciences, as well as Yale's, which would you choose?
  4. I am an incoming graduate student trying to make the difficult decision about which program to attend. I am mainly trying to decide between Rice, UW-Seattle, UMich-AnnArbor, and UCLA. I am interested primarily in research on biotechnology and disease modelling (ie: mechanotransduction). I'm most excited about living in Seattle, but the benefits to a private university like Rice are hard to turn down. Does anyone have any opinions of these schools, any advice to offer?
  5. Is it a bad idea to pursue a graduate degree, such as a Master's degree, if you are unsure as to what subject you truly want to puruse and if you are unsure of your career path?
  6. Hey all, I need input on me picking my graduate school for immunology. So i have four interviews University of Alabama Birmingham, Case western reserve, University of Pittsburgh, University of Arizona. I have already been accepted to Birmingham and case. If i don't get accepted to Pitt, should I go to UAB where I like the school and the research but my reservation is that Birmingham is dull and lacks interesting things to do. Or should I go to case where the PI's are cool well establish and there are some with interesting research to me, I like Cleveland a lot more but i feel less of a co
  7. This is my first post. I found The Grad Cafe by searching Google for topics pertaining to graduate programs that do not require the GRE (to which I was directed to the following topic): And I must say that I was very intrigued. However, given my current difficult situation I am now somewhat more concerned and/or perplexed as to how deep this rabbit hole I currently seem to be in is going. But before anyone gets too confused by my own confusion let me explain my situation (and I apologize in advance for being long winded). I have a BA in philosophy, currently work 2 jobs (7 days/
  8. Okay folks, I need some help from the more seasoned among you (ie current grad students, or professors). I am down to two schools that I am considering attending, and cannot decide. I will briefly outline some of the details about each, but please ask me for more details if needed. First program (P1) is gonna give me a lot more money than the other program (P2), while also having a lower cost of living than P2. They are also a smaller department, implying a closer relationship with advisers. Additionally, P1 places better than P2, and has better NRC rankings on all measures. The only
  9. I'm applying for my post-professional masters in architecture, and here's my conundrum: I've been accepted into two very strong programs (Berkeley and University of Michigan), but I've also been wait listed by my top choice and one of the best programs in the country at Yale. I have to respond to Michigan by April 15th, and informally respond to Berkeley by next Tuesday (3/20) to tell them my level of interest, with no hard date of accepting the admissions offer yet. I've already written a letter to the head of the admissions committee at Yale, thanking them and reaffirming my interest, in the
  10. Hello, I am in the process of choosing between PhD programs, and I was hoping to get some advice on how to go about broaching the subject of the need for additional funding. I have four great choices so far, but the program I am most interested in offers the least funding of all of them. Without sounding demanding or ungrateful, how could I mention my financial concerns? And, would it be appropriate to mention my other offers? I will be attending the university's (my top program's) Prospective Student Open House soon. Would it be best to speak to the director in person then? Or,
  11. Can we compile a list of the relevant factors to consider when picking between admissions offers? The obvious considerations (money, ranking, location, etc) are obvious, but since so far both of my programs are coming out pretty even on all those measures, I'm wondering if people have suggestions for some less-obvious, but possibly game-changing, factors to consider which will help me break this stalemate. I know most of you will cite "fit" as the most important consideration, but since "fit" is something that's impossible to determine on anything other than a very superficial level (i.e. A
