  1. Issue Topic : The best way for a society to prepare its young people for leadership in government, industry, or other fields is by instilling in them a sense of cooperation, not competition.The young people can be taught about leadership in government, industries and other fields through cooperation rather than competition. Young minds are naive and malleable. Hence, they can be taught easily about the needs to become a successful leader.To begin with, instilling the sense of cooperation, the act of doing things together in peace and harmony can be an effective method to build a leader among y
  2. Hi everyone, I am applying for a PhD at universities in the UK. I have recently finished the first draft of my personal statement. I would like to receive some constructive feedback, so I wonder if there is anyone who could advise me on improving my personal statement. Also, I am happy to swap with someone else to help you improve your personal statement. Hope to hear back from you! Thanks.
  3. Hi all! I am studying for the GRE and was hoping I could get some feedback on my practice essay I wrote for the Issue task. I timed myself and wrote this in 30 minute and I would appreciate any feedback anyone has in order to improve my though-process or earn a higher score on the actual test. Thank you in advance!
  4. Hello! I'm studying for the GRE and have been practicing my writing. If anyone could offer suggestions on how I did, or suggestions to improve, that would be awesome. Thanks in advance. Topic: As we acquire more knowledge, things do not become more comprehensible, but more complex and mysterious. Write a response in which you discuss the extent to which you agree or disagree with the statement and explain your reasoning for the position you take. In developing and supporting your position, you should consider ways in which the statement might or might not hold true and explain how th
  5. Hello peeps! I am new on this forum and I am very happy I found this gem! I am a French student preparing the GRE. My English language skills are definitely okay, but of course 'ok' is not enough for the GRE I practiced the dreaded Argument Essay for the first time today and a feedback would help me to evaluate what my strengths and weaknesses are. I know an in-depth analysis is time consuming, any small comment will help! Thank you very much Subject: The following appeared in a memorandum from the manager of WWAC radio station. "To reverse a decline in listener numbers, our owners
  6. I wrote two introductions for my SOP for Harvard University, both taking a bit of a different approach. These are, of course, rough, and will probably not make it into my SOP without significant editing. My research interests center on the broad intersection of gender and ethnicity in American cities during the twentieth century. I am particularly interested in the way that second-generation immigrant- specifically, Italian, Greek, and Jewish -women were present in the public sphere. Using their involvement in sexuality, fashion, beauty, consumption, and political movements as a focal p
  7. Is anyone out there able to give feedback on practice GRE essays? I would be happy to do the same for them!!
  8. Hello! I have a few questions about the School Psychology program at University of Hartford and was wondering if anyone would be willing to share their experiences? Thanks!
  9. What do you think is the best way to go about soliciting application feedback from departments? I was wondering how best to reach out to universities in order to minimize the intrusion and maximize the possibility of getting useful information. (e.g., do you consider it better to write directly to the department, or instead to the graduate admissions office? Do you have opinions as to the best time to ask for feedback? etc, etc.) At this point I'm planning on a second admissions cycle, and even if I get accepted somewhere last minute, I'd like to open the discussion for any lurkers w
  10. I am a freshman Computer Science student who is applying for a prestigious research internship at IST Austria. This is my SOP: I am applying as an intern at the Lampert Group for Computer Vision and Machine Learning at IST Austria. Being aware that the best way to learn about any field is to start working on it, I decided to take up a project on Machine Learning. My journey as a Machine learning newbie began with this project. After some thorough searching, I thought about solving the problem of classification on unbalanced datasets. It is difficult to implement classification
  11. hi, I'm preparing for GRE to apply to study abroad. Can anyone here help me by grading my essays? Please let me know if you can help and i will send you my essay. PS: I'm new and not native English speaker. Thanks in advance. I appreciate the help.
  12. Hi, I am an art student, now I have some problems and I hope I can get your help : ) If I give the petri dish an electric shock, can I get some feedback from the bacteria? ( it could be any form, such as numbers, shapes, or some instrument can output some kind of data ( Any form is okay, but the final output need a real-time changes value ) If you know something about it, I hope to get your answer, or you know that there are similar experiments please tell me, thank you!
  13. Hi everyone, would anyone like to exchange SOPs for feedback? Mine is for Sociology PhD programs. Let me know and I will PM you. Thank you!!
  14. This might be a really dumb question, but I was still wondering. I just really want to know if my SOP reflects a fit for that particular program (Sociology). And I was thinking of emailing the listed contact reference for graduate applications (not some random professor I mean lol) - so then it wouldn't be completely inappropriate right? What do you guys think? Thanks!
  15. This is my first attempt on the issue essay. My particular concerns are whether my logic and examples are logical, well-developed, and persuasive enough. Any other critiques will be much appreciate though. Thanks in advance and I'll be happy to return the favour! Issue Prompt: “As people rely more and more on technology to solve problems, the ability of humans to think for themselves will surely deteriorate.” In order to make the author’s claim, we also need to explore how we use technology to solve problems in the first place. The direct relationship between overreliance on technol
  16. Hey, guys! I was hoping to find someone interesting in trading their SOP, especially for a public affairs/government related program. Let me know!
  17. These are pretty rough I know since they were my first timed practice essays. Any and all advice and critiques are welcome! GRE Practice Essays.docx
  18. Applicants are asked to provide a 1 - 2 page, double-spaced personal statement which includes the following: Why do you want to undertake graduate work? Why do you qualify to pursue a graduate degree at Virginia Tech? What do you expect to derive from your program of study? If you have a concentration or area of interest in mind, briefly outline your interests in this area. What do you expect to contribute as a student and subsequently as a member of the profession? If you have not previously indicated in your application the names of faculty members you are
  19. I can share a link to a google doc if you would like to give me writing feedback on the personal statement.
  20. Hello! I am taking the GRE in a month and I have taken a couple of practice tests now. I would really appreciate it if I can get feedback on this Issue Task essay I wrote for one of them. I'm not sure how this works in the forum but I'm happy to correct someone else's issue task to return the favor. Let me know if you want for me to correct yours as an exchange for some feedback on mine. - Michelle The best way to teach is to praise positive actions and ignore negative ones. Write a response in which you discuss the extent to which you agree or disagree with the recommendation a
  21. [PROMPT] SuperCorp recently moved its headquarters to Corporateville. The recent surge in the number of homeowners in Corporateville proves that Corporateville is a superior place to live than Middlesburg, the home of SuperCorp's current headquarters. Moreover, Middleburg is a predominately urban area and according to an employee survey, SuperCorp has determined that its workers prefer to live in an area that is not urban. Finally, Corporateville has lower taxes than Middlesburg, making it not only a safer place to work but also a cheaper one. Therefore, Supercorp clearly made the best de
  22. [PROMPT] Technology, while apparently aimed to simplify our lives, only makes our lives more complicated. Write a response in which you discuss the extent to which you agree or disagree with the statement and explain your reasoning for the position you take. In developing and supporting your position, you should consider ways in which the statement might or might not hold true and explain how these considerations shape your position. [RESPONSE] Technology, instead of simplifying our lives, has made it even more complicated. Technology is a great enabler. It
  23. Hi, I'm new to this forum as well as grad school life. And since English isn't my native language, I need help with reviewing this short essay of mine. I think it may sound not academically written or too plain. I'll appreciate any help. “What steps would you recommend be taken to make health care in America more available to everyone?” Increasing Value Based Healthcare in America It is imperative to restructure the healthcare system with the aim of value for patients and shift away from a supply-driven system. To deliver more value, healthcare providers should focus solely

I dont mind negative feedbacks because they can even more direct you towards improvement. Also, I would appreciate ratings out of 6. Please do not hesitate to express your true opinions.

  25. I'll be applying to clinical psychology programs for a second time, but not until next fall. This year, I'll be a first year M.S. student studying experimental psychology at a state university in WI. Looking to get some input on my chances/what I should be improving on for next year's application cycle. I graduated in May '16 with my B.S. in Psychology and a minor in Neuroscience. Overall GPA of 3.44 (which I know isn't very good), however my psych and neuro GPA's are both higher than my cumulative. Hoping to have a relatively high Masters GPA to help offset undergrad gpa. Re
