  1. Hi everyone, I am a senior undergrad looking to go into the biotech industry. I have seen many schools offering a biotech masters degree, but am unsure which one I should be applying to because there are too many choices and variations. I have a GRE score of 330, good GPA, and 3 years of research experience, so please feel free to suggest any school you think is best for this degree! I am hoping to go into industry after this degree, in biopharma or consulting.
  2. Hi all, This month I got accepted to two master's degrees: MA in International Relations at Leiden University, with a Global Political Economy specialization, and MSc Development Studies at SOAS. I'm very happy as both interest me a lot, and are in great universities, but now I can't decide which one I should choose, and would like some help with it. At first, I was more inclined to choose SOAS, as I heard many good things about it from a friend of mine who did his Master's there. I did some research about SOAS and student life there, and I thought it would be a place where I'd real
  3. I am currently wait-listed for the given program. I will possibly get some acceptances oncoming weeks, that I will have to answer. Should I wait for CEU until the end of May? Is there any experience of being admitted right after the wait-list? Vielen Dank!
  4. Hello everyone, I have to applied to international affairs schools and have been admitted to SAIS, Fletcher, Syracuse-Maxwell and GPS at UCSD. Academically I prefer 1) SAIS 2) Fletcher 3) Maxwell and finally UCSD, since I consider it is too far away from the cities I want to be closed to like Boston, NYC and DC. However, I am an international student from argentina and my funding options are limited. I have been granted a 54 k scholarship at SAIS, 64k at Fletcher and full tuition at Maxwell and UCSD. Enrolling in SAIS or Fletcher would imply taking student debt for at least
  5. It’s quite a hard choice for me… Let me first describe a bit about my struggle. I wanna pursue an academic career in the discipline of international relations. My main research interests include international cooperation, IR theory, IOs, and Asia-Pacific. Both schools have very significant pros and cons in my view. ANU is a leading institution in Asia-Pacific studies and very rich in academic resources. However, I tend to complete my doctoral studies (PhD) in the US. As you guy may know, ANU is a base for the English School (emphasize the value of traditional research

  7. Background: I'm still waiting to hear back from a few UCs (davis and irvine) that I applied to. I've seen cases where they don't send out offers until May. I've gotten an offer of admission from another school (deadline to accept is April 15). Question: Does anyone know whether it's possible/alright to accept the offer of admission and then change my mind if I hear back positively from those UCs? It's not an ideal situation, but I don't believe accepting an offer (especially for a master's program) is legally binding... That said, I'm not too happy with how the U
  8. Hi, I got admits for MS in Computer Science from Columbia, UT Austin and UIUC. I'm an international student and I'm mostly inclined to go for a job post MS. Can you help me decide on which program to go for? Columbia is an Ivy but looks too expensive. Others are cheaper and have decent CS programs but I'm not really sure how to compare the ROI between them. Thanks.
  9. I've had the good fortune of being accepted to two incredible programs: a PhD in Logic & Philosophy of Science, and a PhD in Cognitive Science. Both programs are at UC Irvine. I'm having an incredibly hard time choosing between them. The LPS program is really amazing, and I see it as the best intellectual/cultural fit for me. The CogSci program is great too, and I have several fantastic PIs in the department interested in taking me on as a student. I think the two programs would be very different experiences since the CogSci program is structured more like a STEM program while LPS is,
  10. I have been accepted by University of Illinois at Chicago for MA English (Creative Writing). The department does not have funding for MA students for this particular program. When I told them that I cannot pay, they said I could apply for graduate assistant jobs which could get me a partial fee waiver and stipend. But the problem is that applying for job is chance-based. Its totally possible that I might not get the job. In that case I might be stranded with near to no money. Should I accept the offer?
  11. Hello guys, So I've gotten admits to TU Delft's Msc in Sustainable Energy Technology and KU Leuven's Master of Engineering: Energy I would like to know which program is better. This is the primary difference, TU Delft's program focuses on Renewable energy generation while KU Leuven focuses on energy distribution and utilization. I have an interest in both of them. My primary intention is to get a good job. Am not interested to further do a PhD. If anyone studies in these programs or knows anyone who does, your help is deeply appreciated.
  12. Hi guys, I'm an environmental design student from China. I applyed for Illustraiton MFA program and was accepted by SCAD (Atlanta campus) and Syracuse University. (I was rejected by SVA and on the waiting list of MICA) SCAD offered me $8000 per year as scholarship and Syracuse offered a 30% tuition scholarship. (which is also about $8000 per year) My goal is become a freelance illustrator and I really hope I can develop my personal voice and enhance my skills during the graduate porgram. I'm not sure which school to choose and there's not much imformation on the internet. Does a
  13. Hello, I'm currently trying to decide between two very different programs, that are both great in their own respect. I'm wondering what advice others recommend in terms of criteria to help with decisions. Program A is what I had initially considered my dream program, the research is very interesting and I've made some good connections already with PIs. The title of the Ph.D is also the field I ideally would prefer. The atmosphere here would be more like going into industry as it is an independent research institution and I think would make for an easy transition to that lifestyle after I
  14. Hi! Created this thread where we can share admission decisions from Canadian universities for Master's and PhD.
  15. Hello I am having a very hard time choosing between two different masters programs. The programs are: A 1 year MSc in Development Practice at Trinity College Dublin. (The summer would be spent doing a research placement abroad which a thesis would be based off of) Or a 2 year dual degree program between American University in DC and University for Peace in Costa Rica resulting in an MA in International Affairs from AU and an MA in Natural Resources and Sustainable Development from UPeace (one semester at AU followed by two semester at UPeace followed by another semester at AU
  16. Hi everyone, I'm having a lot of difficulty deciding between the Master of Arts Globalization and International Development (SIDGS) and Master of Arts Public and International Affairs (GSPIA) at uOttawa. SIDGS has offered me a far greater scholarship while GSPIA has offered me a scholarship, but much lower. Should I be basing my decision on scholarship? I haven't done as much research into SIDGS as I'd have liked to, but on the surface level, I'm having difficulties identifying the differences between what SIDGS and GSPIA offer (aside from GSPIA's faculty and internship program, I know t
  17. Just got an rejection from Rice. sad, kinda expected since i am an international applicant without US degree and rice is an small department compared to other. But still can’t understand how does a school make decisions this quick and without writing sample or interview? Yes, Rice doesn’t require writing sample but I submitted mine anyways. The deadline for Rice was on Jan 5. So it only took them less than two weeks to review SOP LOR GRE GPA and that’s it? How? please help me figure this out. Maybe it will help for my potential future application. Millions of thanks!
  18. I got accepted to two of my top choice programs and am over the moon about it. I honestly don't know I will pick between the two and decided not to think that much about it until I visited both schools (I have been to neither before) and see how I feel then. However, the two visit weekends conflicted. I was able to get one of the schools to reschedule me to visit april 3-5 with other students. I am glad I have the opportunity to visit both schools, but now I am soo worried that I will only have ten days to make a decision. Also, more than a month will pass between when I visit both schools so
  19. I have applied for Masters in Electrical and Computer Engineering for Winter 2020 intake on July 7th. My undergrad % is 74% with IELTS score as 7. But my application status still shows 'Priliminary review required' Does this mean I must leave hopes on this Carleton University?
  20. I am incredibly excited to have been offered admission at CMU and ETH Zurich for MS in Robotics and MS in Robotics, Systems and Control respectively. I am inclined towards computer vision and deep learning. However, I am also inclined to study/research on these topics with a good amount of mathematical rigor. I would not only like to apply these to engineering problems but would also like to come up with new/different approaches through a thorough understanding of topics like probability, linear algebra and optimization. I am interested in exploring different learning strategies - unsuper
  21. Hi all, I am torn between two programs who both offered me Phd programs. I was offered a Phd in Biological Engineering which is the program I actually want to do but the stipend is much less than that for the PhD in Environmental Studies that I was given at a different school. My question is: what ranks higher when choosing a PhD program and why? Is it the stipend amount? The job prospects? The ranking of the school or program? The quality of research? Thank you
  22. I'm having a tough time deciding between HCDE and MSI at UMich. I'm leaning towards UMich as it's a reputed uni with a very strong student community. But HCDE is amazing as well and less expensive when compared to UMSI. Is anyone in the same place as me? What are your decisions and what are the factors that you considered?
  23. I got accepted to NU and UIUC for a fully funded PhD in Mechanical engineering plus stipend. I was first accepted to UIUC and attended the visit day. I have had a great time, met amazing people and faculty, and in general, liked the department. Moreover, I went on another visit day at Madison Wisconsin a week later and immediately knew that Champaign was a better fit for me and I almost committed. However, I hated Champaign (the town) and was hoping to get into another school in a better location. Finally, four days before I need to make a decision, I got into Northwestern which is in Chicago
  24. Between Brown Biotechnology (Master) and Northwestern Biotechnology (Master), what should I choose?
  25. I have applied 7 schools for PhD program, got replies from 3 of them (1 rejection, 2 MS). However, I have not heard anything from 4 schools (MSE- University of Delaware, University of Central Florida, Iowa State and BME- Drexel). The mighty 15th April is only a few days away. Do I have any chance? Or should I expect rejection from those? I am really very worried.
