    PhD applicants: Fall 2018

    Hi, Thought I'd start this topic for 2018 fall applicants specifically for Public Health. I realise there is a general one for all applicants, but thought it might be useful to have one for just a Public Health field (in the most broad sense). I apologise if this post is redundant. I just wanted comments on whether my choice of universities were too strong. Although these were the only programmes which matched my interests. Feel free to comment/share your experience so far. Undergrad Institution: Imperial College London, UK (Top for science in UK)Major(s): Biomedical SciencesMinor(s): n/aGPA in Major: no GPA system in UK (Upper 2nd class)Overall GPA: n/aPosition in Class: Type of Student: International female Postgrad: MSc in Public Health (GPA 3.88) at London School of Hygiene and Tropical MedicineGRE Scores (revised/old version):Q: 160 (76%)V: 167 (98%)W: 4.5 (82%)B:TOEFL Total: n/aResearch Experience: 2 years in health services researchAwards/Honors/Recognitions:Pertinent Activities or Jobs: some teaching assistanceAny Miscellaneous Accomplishments that Might Help:Special Bonus Points:Any Other Info That Shows Up On Your App and Might Matter:Applying to Where:Harvard, John Hopkins, UNC, UCLA, UCSF, Northwestern, Brown, Ohio State, Iowa, Standford
  2. Hello everyone, My name is Ali and I have applied for Audiology at Western and I am wondering if there is anyone else on the same boat? How was the application process? I saw that the GPA came out the other day so I am a bit worried, I hope it will be good enough for Western? Hope to hear from you and learn about your experiences
  3. I got accepted at California University of Pennsylvania on April 11th and was wondering if there was a Facebook group link for the fall 2018 cohort?
  4. I'm posting about this literally just an hour before I'm supposed to be having a phone interview for the Hunter College msw application. It was scheduled only just yesterday, I got the email asking to pick a time and I let them know I would be needing a skype interview because I currently live in Chicago. They emailed back saying I would have to just have a phone interview and picked this time for today. I was really shocked because I thought they only did in-person and Skype group interviews and hadn't ever read anything here or anywhere else about phone interviews. I'm unsure if it's a solo or group interview, I also am unsure of how long it will last. Don't really know what to expect and just wanted to ask if anyone has ever had or heard of phone interviews from Hunter?
  5. Hey everyone, Who else has applied/is applying to public policy programs in Canada for this fall? So far, I've applied to just the MPPA program at Carleton since I'm based in Ottawa. If I don't get in, I can always work for a year and then apply again. I also have the public policy programs at Dalhousie and maybe UOttawa as backup options. I considered applying to Queen's though I've decided against it for now. That's where I went for my undergrad and I'd like to go somewhere new.

    CSUF MSW Fall 2018

    Hello Everyone, I wanted to create a place for people to collectively panic about admissions. Compare stats and say if you were admitted or not. So have at it!
  7. I have noticed that there was not many threads or discussions about community psychology (not to confuse with clinical-community psychology). So, I would like to meet people who share the same interest, and perhaps, we can learn a thing or two about each other. Program of interest: Community Psychology Research interest: domestic violence and sexual assault Schools: Michigan State U, Georgia State U, Portland State U, CSUF and CSULB Number one worry about applying: My GRE verbal prep is below average although I have been prepping for two years, trying to squeeze every bit of words into my head. I am going to take it today and will edit the post to reflect the most current scores. Not worried about: Research experience, LOR, SOP; basically, everything else but the GRE Verbal) If you share the same research interest, maybe we could consider doing a joint study someday.
  8. Hi! I was recently accepted into two great schools for a Master's program in biotechnology: NYU Tandon: M.S. in Biotechnology (might swith to the M.S. in Biotechnology & Entrepreneurship) University of Pennsylvania: Master of Biotechnology Program. I'm having a difficult time deciding between them, as both of them have good programs. Any advice? Additionally, does anyone know how is the biotech scene in NY like? Are there good opportunities as in other big biotech hubs? Thank you!

    I just wanted to start this thread off, since it was so helpful last year! Any Canadian applicants out there?

    MSW CSU 2018

    Hi Guys! So it’s about that time! Schools are sending out their acceptance/decline letters. Let this be a place where you can share which CSUs you applied, which ones you’ve heard from and have yet to hear from. If you got invited for an interview please share some tips for those who haven’t had theirs yet. Let’s support each other and possibly meet people who will be in your program in the fall! My name is Selene and I applied to the extended programs for CSUF CSULA and CSUDH. I got accepted to CSULA and CSUDH but have yet to hear anything from CSUF.
  11. If anyone going to the University of Alabama for library science sees this, would you like to join a facebook group? Over 4,000 people have seen my previous post but only 3 other people attending Alabama have responded. I will be in the on campus cohort and would love to start a group.
  12. I just wanted to make a thread for Masters applicants for Fall 2018. I see a lot of posts are for PhD applicants but not really Masters! Where did you guys apply? What kind of programs did you guys apply for? Have you heard back from any of them yet? Let's talk while waiting for the results =] Here's a little bits of how I'm doing: Field/Program: Biomedical Engineering, M.S. and M.S.E. Schools: UCLA, UCSD, UC-Irvine, Duke, Rutgers, Boston, Johns Hopkins Status? Haven't heard anything back yet... Although I was contacted by one of the professors from UCLA.
  13. Hello out there! Any other fall 2018 Brandeis students on gradcafe? I just got into the Ancient Greek and Roman studies masters program today and will most likely be going - dependent on hearing back from one school. I’m planning a trip to visit the campus soon but would love to hear from anyone that has already been. If you have any recommendations for places to visit or potential neighborhoods to live in, I’d love to hear them! Looking forward to hearing from my fellow Brandeis students ?

    Stanford 2018

    Hello there everyone I'm from India, and I'll be joining Stanford for a PhD in Chemistry, this Fall! I'm sure there are quite a few peeps here who're going to Stanford: we should connect! (We can make a group or something like that ) Does anyone have any idea when we should hear back from our departments? I accepted the offer yesterday. Cheers!
  15. I noticed that no one has started a discussion for this year's application. I don't know if all the potential librarians post on another site or something, but I would love to talk to other people applying for Fall 2018 season. I am applying to UW-Madison, University of Tennessee, University of Alabama, Texas Woman's University, University of North Carolina Greensboro, University of Oklahoma, and Louisiana State University. Is anyone else applying there? I will be completing my first master's in May. It is in English literature. Has anyone heard if having another master's might give an edge when applying for a second? Or does anyone have any info about any of those schools that they would like to share?
  16. Hey Everyone! Just wanted to create this topic for those who are applying to DrPH programs to begin in the Fall of 2018! I'm beginning to look at programs and browsing through this board, so it would be great to hear from others who are doing the same. We can share our thoughts/updates/support here throughout this application cycle that we are about to begin soon!
  17. Hi everyone, I've recently discovered this forum and have been obsessed with it for days, which is good and bad because I learn so many useful things or see reassuring advice, but I also worry about getting to excited and hopeful and having my heart broken by being rejected. I am an undergraduate senior at the University of Illinois at Chicago. My major is psychology, minor is sociology and I've applied to 5 MSW programs for the fall of 2018. UIC's Jane Addams College of Social Work, Depaul University, Loyola University Chicago, the Institute for Clinical Social Work, and lastly the application that was submitted just yesterday, Hunter College's Silberman School of Social Work. So far, I've been accepted in UIC, ICSW, and still waiting to hear back from LUC, Depaul, and Hunter. I originally only choose to apply to the four programs in Chicago because I thought moving out of state would be way too expensive and I was kind of scared that I couldn't live out of state on my own. When applying in December-January I briefly contemplated applying to programs in New York because I've always wanted to live there but I quickly gave up on the thought because I told myself it was too expensive to move/no one in my family would support me moving/and I was already struggling with applications fee and transcripts order fees for the few programs here in Chicago. I recently fell in love with Hunter's program and just knew I had to apply, so I scraped together money for the application fee and asked my recommenders if they wouldn't mind sending their letters to just one more school. I'm worried slightly about my chance of getting into Hunter this late in the season. I mean everyday from hour to hour, I tell myself it's all good, I'm a decent applicant and other times I feel like a complete loser and like Hunter is out of my league. I guess I just want to vent and also ask if any of you think I could swing it? I haven't really told anyone about applying to Hunter except my best friend and my recommenders, of course and I'm sure my friend is tired of hearing me blather about it all day haha. So like I said I'm at UG senior here at UIC, I transferred here two years ago after getting my AA in psych at a community college back home in Champaign. My GPAs at UIC are 3.0 overall and 3.2 for my major. GPAs at CC were 3.0 overall and 3.5 for my major. I have not taken the GRE because none of the programs I applied to required it, including Hunter. I've worked as a resident assistant at UIC for a year now, but have also kept a steady job since starting college in 2013, I was on the executive board of a community service and volunteer organization on campus called Alternative Spring Break, I've cheered on the university's competitive cheerleading team, I volunteer every holiday season with the Salvation Army with my mother who is a case worker for them in Atlanta, I worked for a year early on in my time in CC as an AVID tutor. If you're not familiar with AVID, it's a college readiness program for high achieving middle and high students from backgrounds less likely to go to college. I was also a student in this program in middle school so it was a personal honor to actually be involved as a tutor. I haven't worked in any research here at UIC or worked as a research assistant but I'm hoping all my other extracurriculars and volunteer work show that I am able to handle many things on my plate and am prepared for the challenges of graduate level coursework. Also in my time at UIC, I've been given the opportunity to help with administrative and registration tasks in preparation for the JACSW Training Institute for school social workers every summer since moving to Chicago in 2016. In addition to prep, I also assist in administrative tasks during the training institute and have been able to sit in on quite a few sessions, talked with a lot of school social workers in the field, and just get my foot in the door slightly when it comes to social work. I work primarily with one of the assistant clinical professors who puts on the event and her phd student that works with her, both of whom are 2 of my recommenders. And last but I hope not least, I recently was nominated and won UIC's 2018 Annual Chancellor's Student Service and Leadership Award so I hope that looks nice on my applications. I've noticed a lot of people on here when they speak about their Hunter interviews emphasize how important diversity is to Hunter. UIC is quite frequently ranked as one of the most diverse universities in the country and it's something the university is very proud about celebrating. In my time at UIC I can say that I have benefitted so much from the diverse student and faculty population here, especially within the campus housing department who is the largest student employer on campus and I have worked for my entire time here at UIC. So I think when it comes to speaking about diversity, I have a leg up, because it's all that's surrounded me for two years and something UIC is always focusing on. So I know that was a lot, thank you if you read it all haha. Do you think I have a shot at Hunter? Even if I applied this late in the season?

    BERKELEY MSW FALL 18

    Hello everyone! I wanted to start a chat about admissions. Has anyone received information on when we are supposed to find out about if we got in or not?

    Johns Hopkins Fall 2018

    Hey everyone ! I am planning to go here in the fall. Is anyone else on here planning on going ?
  21. Hi All, I recently was accepted to both the UPenn Biotech program and the UCSF/Berkeley MTM (master of translational medicine) program. I am in a bit of a dilemma because I really like both programs, but being that I don't really know what I want to do after the programs (aka my career trajectory), I don't know which program is better for me. I'm NOT concerned with the cost, or areas associated with the 2 schools. I'm more concerned with the networking benefits and where the alumni of the two schools end up after the program. Also, would attending UPenn help get me into the MBA program at Wharton if I choose to go to B-school later in my career? Would the same apply for Haas at Berkeley? What if I want to go into consulting or start-ups, as compared to generic biotech industry roles? Any answers or comments would help. Also, I'm waiting to hear back from the Columbia for the MA in Biotech, so any additional information that relates to that program would also help! Thank you
  22. Didn't see a UMD thread so starting one.
  23. Hey Y'all, For those of you who applied to Brown University's Watson Institute of Public Affairs' MPA program 2018 Have you heard anything back with regards to admission status and funding? I applied during the regular decision deadline (February 23, 2018) and I have yet to hear back from them. This despite that the program stating admission decisions would be sent out in Mid March. Should I attempt to contact the department regarding the status of my application or should I wait it out? I believe the website states April 15th is the commitment to accept admission deadline (THIS SUNDAY) Is this a bad sign that I have not heard back yet? Any insight would be appreciated Thanks!
