  1. There seem to be a lot of threads asking the same thing popping up lately and I figured it might make sense to make an overall guide thread and then those who feel their answers still haven’t been adequately answered can post below for an idea of what their chances are. Here is a brief rundown of factors affecting your likelihood of getting into top-tier and well respected programs. If you fall below par in any one of these factors you can bump it up by being stellar in one of the others. I'll add to this if others point out other things I've left out. School requirements: Your first s
  2. Hello! I am preparing to apply for PhD programs in Counseling Psychology this fall to begin school in 2020. Current stats: *Current* Masters Student - GPA 3.78 Undergraduate GPA: 3.35 GRE: V 163/ Q 156/ W 5 Presentations: (international) 1 poster, 2 assisted professors in stand up PowerPoint (state) poster presentation (accepted but not yet presented) 2 posters, 1 PowerPoint lecture w/ professor Research: Principle Investigator, April 2019-November 2019 Publications: 1 manuscript in progress Teaching experience: September 2019- Novemb
  3. I went through the hugely popular 'Am I competitive'? Thread in Government Affairs and was wondering if it made sense to create an overall thread in this forum as well. I only noticed three very specific threads on here (linking the one I found to be slightly more general). Hopefully, I get answers and others who are asking themselves the same/similar questions get on here and find answers as well! Program: PhD in Sociology Schools Applying To: Columbia University, University of Chicago, Stanford University, University of Pennsylvania, National University of Singapore, University o
  4. Happy Sunday! I am preparing to submit my MPP application at the University of Michigan - Ford School. I am currently finalizing the Employment/Work Experience section of the online application. I was wondering if anyone has any advice on whether volunteer / extracurricular involvement should be included in this section? It seems Ford is primarily looking for paid employment? For additional context, I am almost five years removed from undergrad but have remained fairly active in different boards and nonprofit organizations since that time. This information is included in my resume
  5. Hello all! I am applying to Clinical Psychology Ph.D. programs and I have a question about experiment descriptions for my research and subject experience. I was a research subject first, then I was a research assistant for the same study. I have separated my CV into research experience and volunteer experience. I explained the experiment in each section. Is it redundant to explain the same experiment twice, in two different sections if the description is the same? Or is it better to name the experiment in the first description and just list the name when I refer to it later in m
  6. Applying for grad school has always been in the back of my mind, BUT with the time coming up to apply, I don't know if I should take a break... The thing is, my grades aren't so bad but not the strongest. I know experience also plays a huge role with acceptance but since I've been concentrating on school, I haven't had much job opportunities relating with child care or with speech. I do not have much experience, so applying and believing in myself has been pretty difficult. I am just terrified that this won't be enough to be accepted to a school. Would taking a year off to work and build my ex
  7. Hello, I have some research experience, but not a whole lot. But I do have a good amount of work experience, extracurricular activities, and volunteer experience that's related to my major and the field I want to study in a PhD program. Are there any tips on how to incorporate everything and make me look like a good candidate even though I may not have as much research experience but a ton of everything of everything else that can translate to good research experience? Through my work experience I definitely have some research interests in mind by the way. Thanks in advance!
  8. Hello! I am recently admitted to the mph program at mailman school of public health, and am exploring this program more in depth. I have a few questions that I would like to ask people who have been to this program. I am wondering if anybody who went to Mailman School of Public Health received merit-based scholarship from the program? If yes, what portion does it cover for your tuition? Also, what is the estimated cost of the whole program(including tuition, living expense, etc.). Based on your post-program job experience, would you say it's worth it? Last, what would you say is the
  9. Hello, I'm newly registered to GradCafe (although I've read forum posts) and i was wondering if I could get some help with looking for work experience prior to grad school. I live in NYC and am currently in my 3rd to last semester of second BA grad studies (Queens College for reference) and am very worried that my resume (CV?) will not be strong when applying. I have not taken my GRE yet which I plan to do so come this summer. I hold a 3.6 GPA from my bachelor's in psychology degree (Hunter College) and currently have a 4.0 in my CSD pre requisite courses. I've had some volunteer exp
  10. I've been reading that the way an MPP makes sense financially and/or career-wise is in circumstances where grads are able to use it as leverage to the work experience they already had. My situation is a bit different. I have a BA in Psychology, taught English in Korea for a year after college, and have spent the last 3 and a half years in social work jobs- mostly doing case management. I've been a mental health case manager and am currently working as a medical case manager at a community center for people living with HIV/AIDS. I have been in this field because I've been building experien
  11. Hello Everyone! Can those of you with ABA experience elaborate on whether or not it helped you to get into a program. Can you share what schools you got into or what schools consider applicants with ABA experience? I understand a lot goes into an application (GPA, GRE score, etc) but I was told by a professor that ABA experience does not matter at all. I have heard otherwise on this forum and would love to get your opinion. Is there anyone who feels ABA experience was a major factor that helped them get into a program?
  12. Hey guys! So I've been volunteering in several places for a while now and I'm having some kind of idea as to what demographic I want to work with, which is mainly the older population. Although of course, I'd like to work in a setting where I can work with both kids and adults. I've volunteered in places where I mainly had to work with kids and I find it really hard to find places that will give me exposure to adults. Right now I'm volunteering at a communication recovery group for people with aphasia and other neurological disorders and also at a non-profit center for people who have TBI.
  13. Hi folks, So I just transferred into a CommDis program, and I am receiving good marks: but I am wondering about certain facets of the grad school application. For example, student research at my school is incredibly hard to come by: this is because there is a large number of CommDis majors at my school with frankly, all of the same qualifications, so the chances of any student(even with good grades) being accepted into one of these positions is few and far between. Is there a way to offset this in my application, or any organizations that allow students to participate in research? Ad
  14. I am trying to gauge admissions outcomes for the upcoming admissions cycle for MA programs in international development and affairs. If you could, please include the following information in your response: GPA: GRE (Verbal/Math/Writing) Applied: Accepted: Rejected: Waitlist: description of relevant work experience and other factors: Thank you!
  15. Hi all, This is my first post. After searching a bit through the forum, I haven't really found an answer to the questions I am asking. While some types of work experience definitely seem to be more valuable than others, I was just hoping for any information about how volunteer work and community/grassroots organizing is valued for MPA/MPP students? My ideal career is hopefully gonna combine policy, communications, and outreach. I have worked as a community organizer for a non-profit dealing with reproductive rights for about a year. Additionally, I also have six years of volunteer experie
  16. One of my mentors informed me that all I needed was a Bachelors Degree to work in schools (they only have it labeled as SLP but min requirement is bachelor's), similar to a SLPA job. Any fellow Idahoans out there that have been through this process or are considering this? I'm curious to know how it works and what it's like. Thanks for the help
  17. I wanted to post this thread here because I was wondering if I could get advice on gaining experience before becoming an SLP. I am currently an out of field applicant hoping to start a post bacc program in the fall for speech. I want to start gaining experience that can benefit me in the long run whether thats in my application for masters programs or just in general as an SLP. Or also if maybe you guys could share your job experience you had while you were receiving a bachelors in comm disorders or what you did job wise?
  18. Hello, I am a political science undergrad student at a comprehensive university in Ontario, Canada. I currently possess a cumulative GPA of 3.78/4.00 and a major GPA of 3.91/4.00. I recently (two days ago) finished my 3rd out of 4 years of university and will be applying in September/October of 2017 with the marks I have already attained. I have work experience as a teaching and grading IR assistant at my university (going to be 8 months), as a trade policy intern at the Canadian Embassy in Washington, DC (4 months), as a legal intern for a prestigious international law firm (1 month),
  19. Hi all! I know you can't 100% accurately 'chance' someone, but I don't really know how competitive I sound overall. I just want to make sure I get into at least one school is all I care about! I want to specialize in bilingual kids. GRE Verbal: 160 GRE Quant: 155 Writing: don't have score yet but I think I'll get at least a 3.5 or 4 Psychology and Spanish majors both have a 3.9 GPA, overall I have a 3.85 Relevant experience: tutoring Latino-American kids, research assistant for a preschool study on inhibition (going to start this fall), observations right before I star
  20. Hey all, I am looking to see how likely I am to get into the following schools with the following criteria. I feel like I am fitting in somewhere around the average requirements of most applicants at these schools, with maybe a slightly lower GPA. GPA: 3.3 from a small liberal arts school in Ohio GRE: 161 V and 159 Q with 5.0 Analytical Writing Experience: 3 campaign cycles as an intern/volunteer (since '08), 3 campaign cycles as a paid staff in field management and data analytics; 1 year in nonprofit fundraising; 3 months interning with a lobbying firm in D.C.; Only 2 year
  21. Does my research in a reputed institute of India under the guidance of a Prof and sponsored by Microsoft count as an índependent research experience? The Harvard AM Statistics Application has one of the questions as ‘Describe an independent research experience’ and I wanted to be sure about what I write.
  22. I'm applying for M.A. TESOL programs for Fall 2017. After discussing experience levels with a current ESL teacher and graduate of SIT, I'm a little concerned about my applications. She told me that most of her classmates had taught abroad, and the rest had taught a language in the U.S. I had read on many graduate school websites that prior experience isn't required, but now I'm wondering if most of the spots go to people who have taught anyway. So, if you are a current M.A. student or are applying this year, how much experience do you have and what schools did/will you apply to?
  23. Hello! I'm interested in science writing programs and am planning on applying to MIT and NYU. I majored in neuroscience at Pomona in undergrad (GPA: 3.67, GRE: verb 169, quant 163), currently work as a grant writer at USC, but developed an interest in science writing through my work and want to move into science journalism. I launched a blog called Free Radicals about a year ago (freerads.org), which has over 1,000 likes on FB (I know small potatoes, but we only launched in January!) This type of background seems to be sufficient for the science writing programs, but I'm thinking of expan
  24. I'll be applying to CSUs for MSW (mental health) and MFT (counseling psych) programs. If you only had time for either research or working in a related field gaining experience ... Which would you choose or believe to be most important? Also if you care to share How much experience or research you think is reasonable that would be helpful. Thanks!
  25. I'm graduating this year and starting to really research grad programs for Speech Path. I'm a non-SLP undergrad so I am looking for grad programs that have a "leveler" or "bridge" program, or who accept students with non-slp undergrad and allow them to take prerequisites in their first year. I am interested in bilingual programs and working with people on the autism spectrum as well. I was wondering if any master's students could reach out and tell me what you love about your program/what your experience has been like so far. I know that each school has a different focus and atmosphere, b
