  1. Hello! I need some advice. I want to apply to schools in the US, Canada, and UK, but there's an issue... In the US, students must commit to a grad school by April 15th. In the UK, it seems as though schools may not be releasing decisions until June/July (specifically DClinPsy programs). Does anyone have advice for navigating this timing issue? I want to apply in both countries, but that's pointless if I have to either turn down all US programs or commit to one US program before even knowing if I have a place in a UK program.
  2. Hi all!! I am seeking suggestions on where to go for the master program. I was admitted by MS in biostatistics in UW-Seattle (Capstone track) and Umichigan, but still cannot make a decision by far and I am now getting worried since 4.15 is approaching. My brief background: double major in genetics and statistics (but I took much more courses in genetics). I applied for MS program in order to get more rigorous theoretical training in mathematics and statistics, and my current thought is to continue in a PhD program after graduation if possible. My current thoughts about two schoo
  3. Starting a post for all those waiting it out with the Georgetown MPP program for fall 2020. Personally applied by the Jan 15th deadline.
  4. Hi all! I haven't seen a thread specifically for MIT AeroAstro graduate decisions yet and was wondering if anyone has heard back yet?
  5. Hi! Applied to and got accepted to MSW programs at UNC Chapel Hill, Columbia, U Michigan, and U Chicago. Really really thankful, but also having a lot of trouble making a decision or even narrowing it down (made a very detailed Google spreadsheet, color coded and everything haha). Any help or advice from current students on how you made a decision or fellow applicants who have decided, etc. would be super helpful! A few things about me/to note: -I applied for the community change/macro/generalist area of practice for each school - Currently doing community organizing work and looking
  6. Alright y'all, someone ease my nerves. I have applied to six schools for the Fall 2020 MSW program and so far haven't heard anything back. I'm starting to panic seeing that some people are waiting on a one more response or have heard back from all their schools. I applied to the following: -UT Austin -Ohio State -University of Georgia -UNC Chapel Hill -U of Michigan -Columbia Help a girl out! Have you heard back? Thanks! ❤️
  7. Hey there! I'm wondering what is the proper etiquette or when is the proper time to let the professors/supervisors know about acceptances and thank them for writing? Is it best to wait until I actually make a decision, as opposed to just letting them know where I was accepted/rejected? I don't want to bother them with too many emails.
  8. Hi guys! I'm a third year undergrad student in the UK and was recently accepted into the Cambridge LMB PhD Programme. I was also invited to "visit" the Yale BBS (Biological and Biomedical Sciences) Programme at the end of February, and the post-visit admissions rate should be at least 50-60% , though I don't know for sure yet whether I'll get in. The problem is that I will probably have to accept/reject the Cambridge offer before I visit or hear from Yale and I'm having a hard time deciding what to do. I was wondering if anyone has advice regarding the programmes I applied to or doin
  9. Hey, I know that there are often two processes after a PhD interview: the school will decide (1) whether you get a place; (2) whether you get funding. From your experience, did you hear back from your potential supervisors first whether you get a place or did you get to know both at the same time? It's been almost three weeks since my interview and I haven't heard anything from the school (I applied for a UK university and it's school of Arts and the funding body is the university, which offers scholarships for several schools and departments). The chair of the interview did say to me that the
  10. I have received my admit for MS in Electrical from USC, CMU-Silicon Valley and University of Pennsylvania. Which one should I choose? WHICH HAS THE SAFEST ENVIRONMENT FOR INTERNATIONAL STUDENTS
  11. I’ve been offered spots at SFU’s masters resource management (for which I will apply to planning stream ) and to Waterloo MA Planning. considerations: - I am interested a diversity of social justice issues, including public health equity and Indigenous rights. I’ve focused a bit already on how environmental policy intersects with health and treaty rights - I have a background in community engagement and social sciences, I think I’m more interested in the social side of things -I want to eventually be back home in BC (been in ON for 5 years) - I’might want to go on
  12. What factors should I consider when choosing which MPH program to attend? Or straight up tell me where you think I should go lol. I would be pursuing MPH in Epidemiology with a global health/social determinants of health concentration. I've narrowed down 3 schools: UMich-AA, University of Washington, and Columbia (Mailman).
  13. What are your thoughts on the programs reputation, class cohort and alumni relationship between GPS (UC San Deigo) and Evans ( Univ of Washington) for MPP/MPA? Hoping to enter in non- proft/ thinktank
  14. Hello Everyone, Accepted to: Harris (MPP) Scholarship 15k Evans (MPA) some fellowship UCSD GPS was not considering it until it gave me full scholarship Maxwell, Boston (MAEP), GW: no aid Leaning towards: Harris. for its reputation, courses and faculty members. I want to work in the quant side of policy analysis which Harris is known for. But I will have to take loan to afford it and it is a VERY expensive school Evans: I plan to concentrate on policy analysis for MPA so I can study courses I am interested in without breaking the bank I have never
  15. Hi Everyone! I applied to 8 graduate schools for a PhD (6 have said no, but one gave me the opportunity to apply for the masters program) And I am just waiting on 2 more! USC and Rochester. I know USC has been busy with their acceptances, but I was wondering if anyone has heard from Rochester, or if anyone from Rochester knows what's up, OR could you please give me some advice on what to do? Should I wait it out until April? Should I shoot them an email? I haven't seen anything here on the gradcafe yet, so I was hoping I could see what any of you might have to say about it.
  16. I had a lot of trouble deciding on a PhD program (direct admission to lab in a STEM field) and thought about it until literally the last minute of April 15 (both schools part of CGS). I was totally split between two choices, which represented very different lab environments, mentorship styles, department cultures, prestige of programs, and funding opportunities. I had previously preferred option A, but was going back an forth, and switched to option B at the end. About a week out from the decision, I am still having serious regrets, anxiety, nerves, etc. and feel I may have made a wrong cho
  17. Hi, What does it mean if I ask a department I applied to a PhD program and then I get this response "We have received your application for the Environmental Science Graduate program. Your application will be held until all positions are filled. Thank you for your interest in our graduate program". I am assuming perhaps I am on a waiting list till but it is not explicitly stated. Thanks
  18. Need help with deciding on schools! I'm still waiting to hear back from other SLP programs, but so far I've been accepted to NYU's ~3-year program and UOP's accelerated 24-month program. For tuition alone, they're basically the same and I really like both programs. Stockton doesn't seem all that fun (but you can correct me if I'm wrong on that), and the idea of going to grad school in NYC is really appealing to me since it's my last chance to study out-of-state in a vibrant place with tons of places to explore, but idk if that makes up for the bad weather, noisy streets, expensive rent & f
  19. Hi all, I have been looking through the social work threads and have found it very comforting to know that there are people who are going through the application and decision process with me. I needed some advice on making a decision on which MSW program to choose. I only applied to two programs which are the University of Texas at Austin and University of Houston programs, I have been accepted to both as well. Problem is, they both have pros and cons for me and I'm having a really hard time choosing which school to attend. Here are the pros and cons: UT Pros: Living on my own (I
  20. Hi everyone, I’m a candidate for 2019 Fall Biomedical Sciences PhD. I received 2 offers, from Penn State (Hershey college of medicine) and University of Utah. I feel they have similar program settings (similar stipend, and both schools require about 5.5 years to graduate, 3 rotations, etc.) so I really can’t decide now 🤯. Can I get some suggestions from you guys? Thank you so much!
  21. I got admitted to Georgetown MPP and UCSD MPP. Interested in getting more training in quanti skills and applied approach to policy analysis.I'm unsure which program has more solid quanti courses based on real-world cases. If considering taking policy analysis in research companies, which program has more advantage on location? I've heard that most internship at DC is focused on NGO or think tanks, what's the situation in Cal? Another concern is the high cost in DC. I'm excited to hear your thoughts on the strength and weakness of these two programs. Thank you !
  22. I applied to Portland State University MSW program for Fall 2019, I sent in my application on December 21st, and received notification that I was accepted (yay!) on February 27th. I applied to the distance education campus in Central Oregon (Bend). I want to know if there is anyone out there that has also applied, waiting to hear a response, or was accepted. I'm sort of confused on the next steps because I applied to the distance education campus, but only receiving e-mails and FAQs for PSU. Their website doesn't help at all, and my next step is to reach out to the admissions/social work progr
  23. I'm lucky enough to have to make a choice between both programs (BU vs. Mt. Sinai Icahn School of Medicine for Neuroscience). I would appreciate any help in making this decision. Both programs have great advisors I could work with, the money is about the same, and both are amazing cities (for different reasons). I'm having a lot of trouble deciding. If anyone can offer any advice, anecdotes, or opinions, it would be greatly appreciated. Which school is better for neuroscience? Which school have you heard has a better graduate environment? I'll just choose whatever y'all tell me.
  24. Got admitted to several schools but not sure which one to go, now hesitating between UCLA MA in East Asian Studies and Columbia MA in Film and Media Studies. I plan to apply for a PhD degree in East Asian Studies/ Comparative Literature/ Film Studies. Undergraduate major: Comparative Literature and German. Interested fields/ topics: Contemporary Chinese Films, Sinophone Studies, New German Cinema, Nostalgia Studies, Trauma and Memory. Concerns about Columbia is mainly on its reputation... Is the MA in Film Studies program easy to get in? If anyone has any suggestion please let me kn
  25. So I was accepted into 5 MPH programs but plan to eventually get a PhD. Would it be bad to ask each school if there's the possibility of applying while completing the MPH and if the credits would transfer?
