  1. I'm new to this site! Had to make an account due to my desperation with application responses. I applied to eight PhD programs in continental philosophy. I've heard back from two with rejections. The other six? Crickets. Even though other people on here are posting that they were rejected, accepted, or waitlisted from Vanderbilt and Emory, both of which I applied to, I've heard nothing from them. How did other people get responses and I did not? Is this normal? I'm really afraid my letters got lost in the mail considering I've moved a lot recently so I had them sent to my parents house for a more stable address. They say there's been no letters but this is just weird! I haven't gotten any emails either, except a weird email from Duquesne that was marketing the city... why would they send that if I'm not accepted? But why would they send that before an acceptance email? What is going on!!! Can anyone shed some light?
  2. Hi all! Title about says it all, I'm trying to decide today and I've narrowed 5 choices down to a final 2 -- Rollins School of Public Health at Emory University and University of Michigan. I'm interested in human behavior and health education, with a specialty in sexual and reproductive health. Here are some factors: Emory + I went to a visit day and was really impressed - Have both a HBHE program and a concentration for sexual reproductive health under global health concentration - Expensive! I feel the material they've sent about how much the school costs esp in comparison to others has been misleading + offered me a 20k scholarship (split between both years) yesterday - but would likely be $100,000 in debt unless other funding comes through (tuition + living expenses) + my favorite school + connections to CDC, other public health orgs Michigan - missed the visit day because of COVID, have had spotty experience connecting with faculty +/- Have HBHE program, sexual health classes but not defined track or concentration +++ Offered me a 50% tuition scholarship, would likely need to take out little to no graduate plus loans for tuition and living expenses - my admission is contingent on taking and passing a math class this summer + high name recognition across fields of study Other info: I was also accepted to UIC, UCLA, and Boston. I officially declined UIC yesterday. Cost of living appears to be similar for both areas
  3. Hello everyone! I'm hoping someone can help me out here with some candid advice and comments. Basically, I've gotten accepted to a bunch of really amazing Master of Public Health programs in Epidemiology: Johns Hopkins, Emory, Columbia, University of Washington, and University of Minnesota. I'm a little overwhelmed right now with the amount of options and approaching deadline. I'm mostly between the Johns Hopkins Master of Health Science in Infectious Disease Epidemiology program and the Emory MPH Global Epidemiology programs. Does anyone have opinions or comments about those programs specifically? My goal is to work for the CDC in outbreak response and prevention, so I know Emory would be an obvious choice there, but I know people who are also working with the CDC at Johns Hopkins. I'm getting a better financial aid package at Emory, but Johns Hopkins has a pretty good Master's Tuition Scholarship I plan on getting as well. I currently live in Arizona, so the idea of moving to another hot and humid place like Atlanta doesn't sound that appealing to me right now (even though I want to move there eventually for the CDC). Both have their positives and negatives basically and here's what I've heard so far (please correct me if you disagree): Emory: large class sizes and small class sizes; definite connections to the CDC; thesis and applied experience requirements; 2 year program; faculty still works in the field; I like the global focus but I don't want it to limit me if I want to work nationally instead; I'm afraid it won't challenge me enough (I've already completed an honors thesis as an undergrad and since Emory has a thesis and applied experience I'm concerned the thesis will be less intensive and just like what I've already done). Johns Hopkins: small cohort size; personalized advising committee; approachable faculty; connections with CDC and Washington DC; just a thesis requirement; 2 year program (second year is mostly just thesis); renowned research faculty; better known internationally; they focus nationally and internationally but I definitely want some more global epi training; I'm afraid it won't be applied enough for my liking (although they say it is for students who want to go into applied epi); also afraid it will be too elitist and not inclusive I will be going to JHU's admitted student day this coming weekend, but I didn't have the opportunity to visit Emory so anything you can say about the overall vibe would be helpful too. Please help!
  4. Hello! I got accepted to the WSAR track at Emory Religion. Any seniors/religion graduates here? How is the programme? The annual stipend is 31k. I wish to know how rigorous the programme is? How are their placements? My other option is the partially funded Masters in Social Sciences from UChicago. PS I have to make a decision by April 15!
  5. Hi everyone, I was recently accepted to JHU and Emory for chemistry PhD program. Now I am trying to decide which is the better choice. I visited both schools and they both offer very good research and have great people. I heard rumors that JHU is very intense and competitive, however they seemed pretty laid back (which I think is great) during my visit , whereas Emory was more serious and enthusiastic. Also I am an international student, not sure if this is relevant info but just putting it out there. I would really appreciate any input. Thank you!!
  6. Hi guys! Those who were shortlisted and had interview offers at Emory IMP program- Have you been told when the program makes a final decision and sends acceptance offers?
  7. Hello! I am very stuck between Michigan and Emory right now. I know Michigan has a better biostatistics program than Emory. But in terms of location, I like Atlanta way better than Ann Arbor. In addition, I think the coursework (and the Qual) at Michigan might also be much harder than Emory. My plan after graduation is to find a job (Pharma/Tech/Consulting), so will there be a huge difference between these two programs? I know PhD students at Emory can find an outside intern job during the summer. I'm not sure if I could do the same at Michigan. Any comments are very welcomed, like the pros and cons for each of them? Thanks! I appreciate that very much.
  8. Did anyone get the interview notice from Emory CSI PhD committee? And when did you submit your application materials?
  9. Did anyone get a call from Emory University IMP program for fall 2018? Anyone national or international? Do reply!
  10. Has Emory University's IMP program started giving out interview letters for Fall 2018 sessions?
  11. Hello!! has anyone heard from the IMP program of Emory University? Had submitted application in October. Still not heard anything. I even mailed them to ask but got no reply. Neither do i see any updates from anyone on this site. Anyone has any idea what they are upto??
  12. Hello everyone, I was recently admitted to Columbia University's SIPA program for the Masters in Public Administration in Development Practice with a $35,000 scholarship to cover both years. Their tuition is about $108,000 for both years which would leave me to come up with about $70,000 on my own. However I would have to worry about housing since I can live with my grandparents in Newark NJ and just commute. However I just received an email from the Dean of Emory for the Development practice program stating that the school is willing to give me a $50,000 scholarship spanning both years which would only leave me $30,000 to come up on my own. However, I would have to find housing in Atlanta. Columbia has more classes suited to my particular interests in green building and sustainable cities. However, Emory is also a great program and they offer 2 field practicums. In your opinion would you take the scholarship to Emory or would you take the offer to Columbia which has more classes suited to my interests?
  13. I have a little over a week to make a decision! I've been accepted to 3 US programs with around the same scholarship (50%), same cost for tuition. UDenver's MA in International Development, Heller's MA in Sustainable International Development, and Emory's Masters of Development Practice. I've also been accepted to IHEID (the graduate institute in Geneva) for Development Studies and a dual program between Sciences Po and Columbia's SIPA for International Affairs. These will be comparable costs. I'm essentially still considering Korbel, Emory, and Sciences Po/SIPA, and they are radically different. Any suggestions would be great! Korbel-- Pros-- as a top IR program, good networking, top research, exchange program with the graduate institute in Geneva so that I could network there and intern, DENVER. Cons-- no field work opportunities Emory-- pros-- new MDP program that hits all the quantitative and qualitative skills I want to learn for program management and research, small cohort 15 people, summer internships with international NGOs included in program (travel, Per dieu, etc), more critical philosophy of development. Cons-- not an IR renowned university, lack of networking opportunities Sciences Po/Columbia SIPA-- Paris and NY, French and networking advantages, both top IR programs in the world, focus on econ/politics, sciences po excellent African studies classes, can understand Jeff Sachs development to hopefully critique later. Cons-- mainstream development, cohorts that are only interested in moving up with UN/WHO instead of critical development theory I would ideally like to be a program manager for an international NGO, but also have significant data analysis skills to do research in the future for public policy and maybe a PhD. I'm going back and forth every day-- any thoughts from students in a similar position or in the development field would be so helpful!
  14. 1st gen college student. Interviewing for a Phd program. Emory has listed me as a finalist and I'm interviewing in a week. Are faculty conducting interviews in the second language as well? Mines is French and of course I haven't had the opportunity to practice. Anyone else will be there next weekend? Have folks interviewed in other CL depts?
  15. So I'm new and this is (obviously) my first post after lurking on here for a bit for an answer to a nagging question I have. Not much of an introduction, but hi i guess? Anyway, I have a B.A. in English from UCONN and am applying for a few PhD programs. Going straight for the PhD rather than the MA because my professors recommended it, as they believe my writing is strong enough to do so. As for the components of my applications: letters of recommendation, GRE, C.V., SOP, all that is pretty much taken care of (aka I'm not too worried about them). I'm finished with the CV and SOP, have formally reached out to recommenders who have already offered to write good letters, and am taking the GRE in a few weeks and am confident I can do well. The writing sample, though? Another story. My writing and critical analysis is pretty solid, and the paper I'll be submitting is the final paper for my capstone course. It is without a doubt my best, most scholarly work. My specific interest lies in Irish Lit, as that's what I have a concentration in and that's what my research focus will (ideally) be in grad school. This specific paper is obviously Irish Lit focused, and, as stated, the research/writing is pretty solid. Basically, the issue here isn't writing, it's length. Out of the applications I'm sending, Emory is my first choice. The application requirements say the writing sample needs to be 15-20 pages, and no more than 20. The paper I'd like to submit is 28 including the Works Cited. I'm having trouble cutting it down and even when I remove what I think can reasonably be removed without majorly altering the overall effect, it's still 24 pages. My ultimate question(s) is/are: do I say screw it and submit the full 28 pages? Do I edit it down to 24? Do I edit it further to 20 even though I feel like I'm butchering it, and am getting concerned with how well the overall paper works if certain paragraphs are missing? How badly will it reflect on me if I submit the full 28? I'm also unsure of how to include brief summaries of the sections I would take out to shrink it, i.e. do I put italics in between paragraphs, do I just do an abstract in the beginning? Because Emory is my first choice and I know how competitive it is, I do not want to do anything that would jeopardize my acceptance. I hope this wasn't too confusing and I appreciate anyone's help! I'm so stressed out about the entire process and some reassurance or tips (maybe from some current PhD students from the program if possible) would go a long way!
  16. I've been accepted to Candler's School of Theology for my MDiv. Stressful thing is, I was offered half-tuition, leaving me with $10,000 I have to come up with per year. As a nondemonimational Christian, ministry scholarships are hard to come by. I really, really don't want to take out so much in loans and be stuck with debt for the rest of my life. I'm really torn and upset because this was the only graduate school I applied to (I didn't want to leave out of state and the decision to apply to seminary wasn't until the end of my first semester as a senior) I guess I just don't know what to do. I would really, really love to go and I have absolutely fell in love with the staff and school when I visited. Anyone know of any scholarships that I could qualify for (as a nondenominational Christian.) I put this in the decisions post because really, would it be worth it to accept the grant and pull out loans? If anyone knows about Emory, will I be able to negotiate with financial aid for more money? If worse comes to worst, I'm going to have to decline the grant and do a gap year, which I do not want to do. I have to find what I should do all in three weeks
  17. Hi guys, Not sure if anyone will be kind enough to respond, but here goes. I'm a California resident, and finances do matter since I'll be taking out loans. I got into a few masters programs: 1. UCLA M.S Biostat 2. Emory M.S Biostat 3. University of Michigan M.S Biostat 4. Brown University M.S Biostat Waitlisted for University of Chicago M.S Statistics I don't think I received any financial aid for any of the programs but Brown is offering me about 25% off my tuition which is roughly $51,000. Anybody have any opinions?
  18. Stats: Ethnicity: Filipino Major: Chemistry cGPA: 3.70 (3.31 last two years @ Georgia Tech) GRE: TBD but I had 80th percentile SAT score 6 years ago while in high school. I was a poor test-taker back then. Research: 1 semester Work Experience: I currently work at a biotech company making cancer-based immunotherapy. No research involved; purely manufacturing. I understand I lack research experience. However, looking at my profile now, what do you think are my chances at UGA, Emory, and Georgia State University's chemistry PhD programs? Thank you for your input.
  19. Hello all, I have plans to become a scholar, focusing on systematic/constructive theology, for a post-secondary/graduate institution. I am also open to ministry if things don't pan out for getting a teaching job. I applied to 8 Mainline schools (Boston U, Candler, Claremont, Chicago, Duke, PTS, Vanderbilt, Yale; all in divinity schools/schools of theology), 2 Evangelical schools (Fuller, Wheaton), and a Seventh-day Adventist (SDA) Divinity School. I applied for MTS/MA/MAR's at most schools except I went for an MDiv at Chicago and the SDA school. With my first acceptance to Emory already announced, I have begun serious contemplation of what route I should take in preparing for a PhD. Honestly, before this acceptance letter I wasn't hoping for acceptance into these other schools (I had a little above average scores like a 3.68 GPA but I was just pessimistic I suppose). Now that I got this wonderful letter, which I am ecstatic about, I have begun to realize my dilemma. I see the benefits of going denominational as follows: 1. Networking within Adventism: I could network far more thoroughly within my denomination 2. Opens door for Pastoral Ministry: I'd obtain the basic ministerial credential for service in the church just in case I don't get a teaching job at the end of my later doctoral studies 3. Great financial aid: There would be fairly good financial aid (80% scholarship) 4. Work Experience: I am likely to be a TA or RA 5. Further grounding in SDA theology: Perhaps most importantly, I'd gain a more thorough understanding of my denomination than I have in my undergraduate studies 6. Impressive Faculty: Though Adventists don't tend to be thought leaders in today's theological climate, some amazing scholars are there, most of them having credentials from top tier universities and two faculty having degrees in second-tier institutions. Under them I would get to study from a progressive SDA perspective (so far I was only trained within a more conservative tradition). In addition, they do have connections to mainline universities, particularly Claremont, and they could possibly have sway in getting me into these places. 7. An open MDiv Curriculum: Their MDiv is fairly open-ended and creative. I could essentially use my electives to specialize in an area of study and take even more courses there than I would in an MTS. I would also be able to direct my ministry classes to post-modern ministry, ministry and the arts, and other creative possibilities. I could also get special training in post-secondary research and teaching there, giving me a great foundation in methodology and practice. Bonus: I'd get to live in Southern California, which I see as the greatest place in the universe at the moment. You can see the faculty's credentials all right on this page quickly if you'd like At the same time, I would have the opportunity of a lifetime to study at Emory and would enjoy the following benefits as I see them: 1. The opportunity to study under well-known scholars 2. With a name like Emory under my belt, I would likely enjoy greater likelihood in gaining admission to a PhD program. I intend to only apply to mainline schools like the ones mentioned above (Definitely not an SDA one; an Evangelical school is a minute possibility). 3. I would gain a thorough understanding of contemporary Christian issues from an authoritative institution that houses thought leaders and widely contributes to modern scholarship 4. Broader networking opportunities to up my chances of PhD admissions and future teaching posts (This shorter list reflects both my lack of awareness of my financial aid package and my lac of familiarity with specific opportunities at Emory) I see the following possibilities: 1. Go to Emory and then go straight to a PhD 2. Go to Emory now since I'm accepted and then go to Denominational School before a PhD (Would this defeat the purpose of going to a place like Emory for reputation and connections since the SDA school degree would be my last degree?) 3. Go to Denominational School and try for a PhD immediately after. If I can't get in apply to MTS at mainline school later (But would rejecting my acceptance from Emory now doom me from being able to get into the same program later?) Just to throw in some potential possibilities that may sway your assessment: - I'm strongly considering also pursuing an MA in Philosophy before graduate school since progressive SDA theology values philosophy highly. I would apply exclusively to top tier institutions and pursue it directly before my PhD studies, which again would be in systematic/constructive theology. - It is possible that I would do an MDiv/MBA combo at the SDA school, perhaps giving me a slight edge in PhD admissions. Side question: How hard is it to get into Emory's MTS program? I ask because I'm trying to gauge my chances for the other 9 schools as I await their response. Note: I'm completely comfortable going anywhere for school, I hold no reservations learning from anywhere! P.S. I didn't want to type the SDA school name out here because it might pop up unintentionally in search engines and attract unwanted attention to my dilemma
  20. Is there anyone here who has been accepted into the Emory- African history field for fall 2012. If yes was the acceptance through regular mail or email? Am totally freaking out, i have heard nothing and am starting to get a really strong feelling that am one of those applicants who will get a mass reject in march. Any information on acceptances or rejects will be appreciated.
  21. Am going crazy here, I have heard nothing from my top choice school (Emory-African history) and am wondering if anyone has received any acceptance from them, especially if anyone has been admitted into the African history program. I would also love to know if anyone has gotten a reject from them and whether the acceptance or reject was via email or regular mail.
  22. I feel really stupid asking this, but I can't figure out how to check the status of my application for Emory. My "Application Recieved" email didn't mention it, either. For UMICH, I've pored over my Wolverine Access page and there's nothing that says "application status," like the UMICH website says there should be. Any clues on where this mysterious status is located within Wolverine Access? Thanks in advance for any tips and I apologize if this has been asked before!
  23. Hi, everyone. I am an international student, and I just got an invitation of Skype interview from Emory Sociology. I did not expect that they would have a Skype interview with me, and I really don't know what should I prepare, as it is the first time I got an interview from a US school. Could anyone offer me any information about the Skype interview? I guess it might be similar to the interview for the domestic students. I am really worried to be asked about many theories things, as I did not major in sociology in my undergraduate studies. I do not speak very fluent English, either... Thanks very very much for any suggestion!!!!
  24. Hi I'm a first time poster here. I go to Emory University, and the math dept here offers a 4 year BS/MS in math. Here is the link: http://mathcs.emory.edu/programs-undergrad/deg-math-bsms.php Emory's math dept is only ranked 63rd in the nation though. How would doing this look on an application to top Math Phd. programs compared to just doing a pure math major? Is this worth pursuing. I might also be interested in MFE programs; in terms of admission to those, would I be better off with the BS/MS or just a math major and lots of programming and finance courses? Thank you
