  1. Hi all, Just prepping a thread here for discussions on 2020 admissions. Feel encouraged to share what programs you're applying to, update us on decisions, and talk shop with other applicants. I'm applying to: University of Maine University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee University of California-Santa Barbara University of Tennessee Cardiff University Technological University Dublin University College London Penn State University (maybe) Best of luck to everyone! Let's keep each other in the loop.
  2. 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.
  3. Does anyone have news on admission for 2019 session?
  4. Hi all! I'm hoping to get some help here. I'm a first year masters student and I've begun looking into PhD programs to apply once I graduate. I know this might be somewhat early seeing as I'm not even close to finishing my degree yet, but I know that I'll have to apply by this time next year, so I might as well get a head start! My area of interest is 20th century American literature with an emphasis in feminist and ecocriticial analysis. I'm really interested/specialty in archival work. I've worked closely with texts that have been "forgotten" especially those written by women. I tend to lean more towards female writings and Native American writings of the West. So that's where I'm at with this. In terms of programs, ideally fully-funded and providing ample opportunities in either teaching or research. So far my list includes; UNL, University of Michigan, University of Texas Austin, Ohio State, University of Oregon. Does anyone have any other suggestions for me to look into? Thank you in advance!
  5. 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.
  6. Hi I am currently trying to decide between 2, potentially 3 MS chem programs. I have offers from GWU (w/ fellowship), SDSU, and UBC (conditional offer). I think the UBC offer is less likely as it is contingent on me confirming a lab supervisor prior to May 31 and I have not had any luck so far. I'm currently about to graduate from UCSD where I have had some research experience. I am mostly choosing between GWU MS in Environmental and Green Chemistry and SDSU for MS Chemistry. I want to pursue environmental chemistry work in the future but mostly, I want to really focus on research, and I am considering doing a PhD in the future. Although GWU is a more prestigious school, the program does not really provide a 'thesis' option. I know that this doesn't mean I can't do research, but I feel that it is less likely? Rather, it's more centered around coursework and 1 capstone project during the last semester. SDSU is very thesis based with a lab supervisor that you work with throughout the whole program. I am wondering if it would be better for me to choose SDSU over GWU based on the fact that I am guaranteed to really gain experience in a lab-setting and doing research, whereas at GWU, I feel that I would be less able to conduct serious research, although I could be wrong.
  7. Rarely anybody was rejected by CMU's CEE Master program, but CMU ranks among the TOP 10 in Civil Engineering! Why?
  8. I’m still waiting to hear back from Duke’s University Program in Environmental Policy - through the Nicholas School. I’ve seen rejections from the program on the results board in early Feb and their website says they will provide decisions by mid-February but I haven’t received anything and there have been no changes made to my portal. I haven’t seen anyone else posting about this program and was hoping to connect with anyone else who applied to I can just know this silence is a soft rejection and move on. Thank you!!
  9. 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
  10. 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?

  12. 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!
  13. 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
