  1. I know this is the last minute for the applications but I really need some quick help! I am actually confused about some basic logistics of the personal history statement. So UCLA allows an 8000 character limit which falls to about 2 pages of 12 point text. I wrote my statement according to that but googling a bit I found that the ideal length is around 500-700 words which is about one page. My application to UC Berkeley also needs a personal history statement and I am now confused as to what length of a statement should I stick to.
  2. Hello hello! Hoping for a last minute review of a personal history statement that is due TODAY for a UC. To be blunt, I am a white female who grew up affluent. In my statement, I tried to 1) acknowledge my privilege, 2) acknowledge where my commitments to diversity and marginalized groups have fallen short in the past, and 3) how I now view my responsibilities as a person with privilege. I'm not sure my statement follows through with those three goals, however. I would sincerely appreciate anyone who can offer a quick read through and feedback as to where my points are getting lost or I
  3. I came to the US as an undocumented immigrant from El Salvador and graduated in Business Analytics B.S. with a Computer Science minor. I am applying to Statistics and Biostatistics PhD programs for Fall 2019 and am currently a Database Analyst using Python and SQL at a tech company. My biggest concerns for a PhD application are my GPA (3.25 GPA) and lack of research experience. No research: I only found out about formal academic research until my 6th/7th year of undergrad. I did a few years of music degree and by this time, I was 100% focused on internships, technical skills,
  4. Hi gradcafe! We're the Graduate Recruitment Initiative Team (GRIT) at the University of Chicago. We're a team of graduate students committed to the recruitment and retention of students from marginalized backgrounds to graduate programs in the Biological and Physical Sciences at the University of Chicago. For students from marginalized backgrounds, the road to grad school can be confusing, downright scary, and may seem impossible. The lack of diversity in STEM is a huge problem, generating unsupportive and sometimes hostile work environments for students of color, LGBTQ+ students, studen
  5. I have no idea where to begin writing an equity and inclusion statement for Boston University school of Education. If anyone has any advice or ideas where I could get started and what I should write about that would be very helpful! This is the prompt they included: Equity and Inclusion Statement: Boston University School of Education is committed to equity, diversity, inclusion, and social justice. Please upload an equity and inclusion statement, and comment on these principles in the context of your professional aspirations. The statement should be approximately 2 pages, double-spaced.
  6. Hey all, I'm currently wrapping up my last application of the cycle (Glad to almost be done!) and it's for Cornell's program. Part of the application asks whether I'd like to be considered for a diversity fellowship. The prompt is pretty straightforward but other than the prompt itself there is no other information provided. Is anyone else submitting a diversity essay, and if so how long is/was it? Thanks for the help!
  7. Hi everyone, For some of the programs I'm applying to, a "diversity statement" or "personal statement" is required in addition to the standard Statement of Purpose. However, for schools that only ask for the Statement of Purpose, there is a field where I can attach additional documents. Would it be wise to provide a diversity statement to a school that isn't asking for it? Similarly, if a school is not asking for a writing sample, what are your opinions on providing one in the space to upload supplemental files? Basically, long question short is: to what extent should you/should you not
  8. Hello, UMass Boston is currently inviting applicants for the PhD track in Organizations and Social Change, part of the PhD program in Business Administration at the College of Management, University of Massachusetts, Boston. We are seeking outstanding applicants with a broad interest in the business-society-environment interface. Prospective students with prior degrees in management, sociology, economics, political science or other relevant areas are encouraged to apply. Most successful applicants have a Master’s degree. Prior research experience (e.g. data analysis, literature reviews, a
  9. Does anyone have experience with writing a diversity statement for a successful application for clinical science? I do not mention adversity in my academic personal statement, but a program I might apply to specifically asks for diversity/adversity history. Is it okay to bare all if the program asks and you use that information to explain why you are a better candidate for it? Or will certain information work against you and seem divulge-y?
  10. Hey all, I was wondering if anyone applied to the HHMI fellowship of Gilliam for advanced study. June is almost over and I haven't heard anything (I assume a bad sign).
  11. I am applying to I/O psychology programs with the hope of studying bias and discrimination in the workplace, and I am concerned about Trump's policy implications and potential withholding of funding from universities conducting research in this area. Anyone else have similar concerns? I imagine this is also applicable to other fields as well (natural sciences, biology, etc.) Anyone currently in doc programs that have insight or perspective here?
  12. The UCLA graduate application requires a personal history statement where you have to talk about how your life experiences and how they led to the decision to pursue the graduate field of interest. It specifically says that "this statement should not duplicate the statement of purpose". In my SoP, I am already writing about how my experiences, both personal and academic, made me apply to XXX programs so I am not sure how this personal history statement is different from the statement of purpose.
  13. Even though most of my applications have been sent in, there's something bothering me. I tried to search for a similar and active topic, and did not find any. Applications tend to ask "diversity" questions. For example (using myself as the applicant), all of my schools know that I'm female and that I'm a minority. Most applications I've seen ask about military status (I marked dependent if the option was present, otherwise I would mark non-military), some ask for religious affiliation or if you identify with the LGBTQ+ community. Now, this type of question is frequently optional, which ma
  14. Hey all, I'm just wondering how other people are dealing with stating their race of their forms? I'm especially interested to know what multi and bi-racial people are doing. As a bi-racial, I'm conflicted about acknowledging any race at all. I claimed my minority background for my undergraduate applications, and I think that this hurt my chances. Especially since my other half is Asian, I felt that I was being compared to other Asians on some sort of achievement scale. Is it ok not to claim any racial background? Does it negatively affect one's application? Thanks.
