  1. Hi everyone! Has anybody else going to Duke for Fall 2018? (I see that there's a new Duke thread on the board, but I wanted to make one that is not program-specific.) I'll be accepting my PhD offer for the Cognitive Neuroscience Admitting Program.
  2. 1) Gatech Pros: - Highly prestigious ECE school - Very strong group of researchers in ECE Cons: -My advisor is fresh out of his postdoc, so no PhD supervising experience yet or connections in academia and also less published papers (he seemed like a nice guy though, and his mentoring style seemed great, in theory). 2) Duke (PhD in Mechanical Engineering) Pros: -I got great comments on my advisor by a current PhD student of his (friend of mine), and his mentoring style suits me almost perfectly. He is also somewhat experienced (been a professor for a little less than a decade). Cons: -Duke's is not as famous as Gatech or UPenn. -At Duke I will actually pursue a PhD in Mechanical Engineering, because my advisor is with the ME department officially (even though he is researching ECE stuff). 3) UPenn Facts: -The prestige is between Duke and Gatech (Gatech>UPenn>Duke) -I liked the mentoring style of the advisor (judging from what he told me), and he is also adequately experienced (same as Duke's advisor). So, just because I do not have any inside info about the advisor, I rank this advisor between the advisors of Duke and Gatech (Duke>UPenn>Gatech). All of these advisors publish quality papers in respected journals. Also, the possible projects offered by all of these advisors interest me the same (not much that is). Moreover, I do not have a preference over Atlanta, Durham and Philadelphia. I plan on following a career in academia after my PhD. Should I choose prestige and fame and an inexperienced advisor (gatech) over a less prestigious school but with a guaranteed great advisor (Duke) or should I choose something in the middle (UPenn)? What matters more for a successful career in academia? Thank you in advance for your answers.
  3. Hi, I am looking to apply for environmental policy PhD for the fall 2017 intake. I have an undergrad in economics from India and an MSc. in environmental management from UK. I have 3 years of work experience but only a year of that is in environmental research, other 2 years of work ex is in finance. I will be appearing for my GRE in September, though I currently score between 300-320 in my mocks. I wanted to know which programs should I apply to with my background? I found Ivy League colleges like SIPA columbia, FES Yale and Duke's PhD but I am skeptical of my ability to get admission in them. Are there any other PhD programs focusing on the management and/or policy side of the environment?
  4. Just got admissions from these universities as a Master student in Electrical Engineering for fall 2016. Could anyone please give me some advice on where to go? I would first give my priority to the convenience in finding a job,then goes to how friendly the place is to the LGBT people. All kinds of advice is welcomed here!
