  1. Hi guys. I haven't seen many Civil & Environmental Engineering applicants on the site so I figured I would start a thread for the few that exist. I would love to know what schools people have already heard back from. So far I have been accepted to PhD programs at the University of Michigan Ann Arbor, Virginia Tech, and Northwestern.
  2. Hello all, I am an undergraduate student from India with bachelors in Biotechnology and a GPA of 3.8/4. I am in a quandary: whether go for Biomedical Engineering or for Environmental Science ( I have a predisposition towards it). Please help me know the job prospects after graduation. Are these fields of study in demand? Would i be able to secure a job after my graduation ? Should I go for Biomedical or for Environmental Science?
  3. Could not find any activity for Fall 2017 so hoping you guys who applied will share their experiences -------------------------------- Undergrad Institution: Major(s):Minor(s):GPA in Major:Overall GPA:Position in Class: (No numbers needed, but are you top? near top? average? struggling?)Type of Student: (Domestic/International, male/female, minority?)GRE Scores (revised/old version):Q:V:W:TOEFL Total: (if applicable)Applying to Where:
  4. Does anyone know of any other programs similar to CU Boulder's MA in Strategic Communication Design?: http://www.colorado.edu/cmci/academics/advertising-pr-and-media-design/graduate-degrees#ma Something that discusses design as a way of problem solving or something that may include graphic design specifically with an environmental focus.
  5. I am applying to a few programs in Chemical Engineering and Environmental Engineering in the USA. Out of a total of 12, I have already applied to 8 programs. I will finish applying to the rest in the next two weeks. This thread is an attempt to bring together all applicants who will be joining Chemical Engineering and related programs like Environmental Engineering and Material Science. The reason for bringing these programs together is the common pool of applicants who apply there. The purposes of this thread are following- 1. Share possible good programs to apply to. 2. Share profiles of fellow applicants applying to the same programs. 3. Application related queries (official transcript related, possible answers to application requirements and so on) 4. Updates about application status. 5. Updates about admits and/ or rejects. 6. Bringing together applicants admitted to same universities. All the best!
  6. Yale FES vs Michigan SNRE

    Hello Gradcafe, Struggling with a good problem to have. Got admitted to Yale's School of Forestry (FES) as well as University of Michigan's School of Natural Resources and the Environment (SNRE). Yale degree is Masters of Environmental Management; Michigan is Masters of Science. My research interests are renewable energy, green chemistry, arctic climate policy, and life cycle assessment. Both gave me equivalent financial packages. Visited UM before visit day and Yale at the open house. I'm torn about which to choose. Part of me feels like it would be silly to turn down Yale because its the golden key that will open a lot of doors. Something tells me the folks at Michigan seem a bit more realistic and pragmatic. They work in Flint and Detroit. Yale has opportunities (so many) around the world. Another major difference is structure: FES has no required courses (candy shop), whereas SNRE has a few core classes and a larger emphasis on tracks. So does anyone have any thoughts? Did anyone suffer with a similar decision? Anyone have any comments on the structures, outcomes, and attitudes of the two programs? So much help..seriously... I have eaten so many Tums (tm) the last week. With thanks and gratitude, greenisgood
  7. My main problem is that I don't think I'll be able to make admissions deadlines until late December. I believe that I will have some extremely strong LORs from some notable professors. My main problem is my GPA (and my ADD), but it has been okay for the last 2 years. Also, I have an extremely unusual profile (no one has ever seen an applicant like myself ever before - which could result in some pretty interesting decisions). My main strength is my sheer interdisciplinarity (which some biology programs might value) - I've taken graduate level courses in at least 5 different departments, and am a triple major in astro+physics+math. I'm definitely applying to Caltech's program anyways, but I'm wondering if there are any other options for those with a computational bent. == Anyways, here are my stats: Undergrad Institution: University of Washington (top-5 in atmospheric science, where I'll be getting most of my LORs from) Major(s): Astronomy, Physics, Math Minor(s): Applied Math GPA in Major: 3.77 Astronomy, mid-3's in Physics, Math is unmentionable Overall GPA: 3.58 for last two years (as for overall - suffices to say that it's between 3.1 and 3.5) Type of Student: Domestic Asian Male. GRE Scores: Biology: 810 (89th percentile), completely self-studied without taking any courses asides from a grad-lvl neurophysiology course (still waiting on others) Research Experience: Several years. Two publications (although in papers with numerous coauthors where my role wasn't that significant). Latest research is exoplanetary atmosphere research Awards/Honors/Recognitions: - National AP Scholar (8 self-studied APs) - Early Entrance @ University of Washington Pertinent Activities or Jobs: - Attended a grad-student program (CASS 2011 - http://www.ifa.hawai...UHNAI/CASS2011/) as an undergrad last summer - Quora Reviewer (have really built up the science sections on Quora up over the last few months), and am a top answerer on Astronomy, Biology, Neuroscience, Scientific Research, and Academia - Panelist on Reddit AskScience, Supporting member on Physics Forums, and also active on Astronomy Stack Exchange (and several others). Special Bonus Points: - Professors at Chicago and MIT (both famous in their fields) seem to be quite interested in me (I've already been in personal contact with them), and my research is already very similar to that of 2 Chicago profs. - LORs might be interesting. One of my profs said that I will probably be "great" someday (although I'm not sure how common that message is) - Grad-lvl courses in Neurophysiology, Planetary Atmospheres, Objective Analysis (aka Digital Signal Processing), High-Performance Scientific Computing, Numerical Linear Algebra, Causal Modelling (in statistics), Chinese Geography, and Ice/Climate (atmospheric science) - all with 3.4 GPA or above Any Other Info That Shows Up On Your App and Might Matter: - Probably the most unusual applicant anyone has ever seen in a very long time, if not their lifetime (I really don't want to brag, but the truth has to come out) - GPA *really* tanked down by 3 0.0's I got when I was a retarded teenager and went for grad-lvl applied math courses - I have fairly severe ADD that I only addressed with meds 2 years ago. - I also have a very high profile on the Internet (some people find it, but many people don't find it since they forget to google my middle initial), especially on Quora Applying to Where: (this is probably a preliminary list that needs to be expanded) Dec. 31st: harvard EPS, princeton AOS Jan 1: Caltech Planetary, Caltech Environmental, Caltech Biology/CNS (huge reach here) Jan 3: Columbia Astro (may switch to EES depending on PGRE score) Jan 5: MIT EAPS, UCSC (astro or earth science - still pending) Jan 8: Arizona Planetary Jan 9: Chicago Geophysical Sciences Jan 14: Arizona Astro (probably wont apply) Jan 15: Boston U, Colorado, UCLA ESS, Washington Atmos Jan 20: Penn State Astro Feb 1: Cornell Atmos
