  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. Dear all, New member here. I am thinking of applying to Rockefeller, and wondering if anyone here will be applying to their Biosciences PhD program this Fall? I would really appreciate any general information and advice about the application process from individuals who have already been accepted in previous years and how current applicants are preparing in general, as well as things like non-official GPA requirements (Current GPA is 3.3, it can be fixed but will be known after application deadline ... is it worth applying?). Many thanks in advance.
  3. I am a 27 year old economist with 3 years of professional experience in data science. I finally made up my mind about studying a master's in data science and plan to send in my applications as soon as October to multiple schools in the UK and Canada. Unfortunately, I do not meet the so called 2:1 honors degree requirement. A 2:1 degree is the equivalent to an 8.5 out of 10 in my country's system and I'm a long way off, sitting at 8 out of 10. How will this impact my applications? I would like to know whether or not schools will immediately reject me. Has anyone here been in a similar situ
  4. Hi! I'm really interested in the MCIT (on campus) at UPenn, but I guess it might be pretty tough for me to get accepted. I'm from Germany and I have recently finished by bachelor's in business studies. I don't know my official GPA score yet, because I haven't had any transcript evaluation done so far, but my grade should be equal to a GPA of 3.4 (maybe slightly higher like 3.44). According to my bachelor's certificate I was among the top 8.2% students of that degree (out of 1900), but I don't know if that's good enough. Some more facts about me: - My grades in both of my maths classes
  5. Hi there, does anyone know how Dalhousie calculates GPA when a third year on exchange in Europe is involved?
  6. Hi all, My first post on grad cafe- wahoo! I have a question regarding GPA and how much trend matters for admission into top-20 poli sci phd programs. My overall GPA currently sits at about a 3.5GPA, however, this is due to my first 2 semesters averaging a 2.96, while the following 3 semesters have averaged a 3.9GPA. There a couple of reasons for this split that are unimportant, but the question still stands- how much does this trend matter? Will they evaluate me as they evaluate any other applicant with a 3.5 GPA, or will they put more emphasis on my recent coursework? Obviously GPA is a

    hi all! I have a question about a school I am currently interested in. I have a professor advocating for my admission, obviously it is not guaranteed but what's the likelihood of being accepted? also, for some reason, i am freaking out that i may have reported the incorrect gpa. if a school is said that they will consider the last 90 units should i have reported that gpa or do they calculate it?
  8. Hey Everyone!, a newbie to this forum here! I am a prospective student who will be applying to the MS Computer Science Program at Georgia Tech. I have a unique doubt. I have already submitted a Ph.D. application (ML Ph.D. program) at Georgia Tech. But according to this link (https://grad.gatech.edu/helpdesk/knowledgebase.php?article=7), a student is allowed to have two open applications per semester. So, my first question is that then it should not be a problem if I decide to apply to the MS CS Program, given that I have another submitted application already, right? Second, if I am allowe
  9. Guys I need urgent help! I am applying to materials science and engineering department of texas a&m university and their application requires me to convert my GPA by multiplying it with amount of credit earned. The problem is I do not know anything about the credit system. My undergraduate institution (Panjab University) does not have a credit system and hence I don't know how much credit hours I have earned during my bachelor's degree. Also, TAMU's website states that "Total credit hours are the total amount of hours earned for coursework completed on your official transcript." I have no
  10. Hello, My question is for anyone who has been accepted to media related PhD programs. I'm looking to apply for Communications/media studies programs and wanted to know for those who have been accepted to these programs what type of background did you have: - what was your GRE score? - past college GPA's - did you have any publication experience? - did you have and related work experience in the field of communications/media studies/film? - what school were you accepted to and what did they offer full funding?
  11. I was wondering if anyone knows how your undergraduate GPA are weighted? I have low undergraduate GPA(2.8/4.0) and have fairly good masters gpa (3.7/4.0) . I'm thinking about applying to a Ph.D program in top business schools and economics departments like Columbia, Michigan, Harvard, Stanford. My GRE score (total 325) is not bad either. Any thoughts?
  12. Good afternoon, I am trying to gauge my odds of acceptance into three graduate programs for a masters in history. Below are my general stats that are applicable and I would like to see what everyone things my odds are of getting accepted as well as funding. I am taking the GRE next thursday so I will post those below once taken. The three schools are University of Tennessee at Knoxville, Texas State University in San Marcos, and University of Memphis B.A. History, Minors in Political Science, Military Science Undergrad GPA: 3.01 Work: 2LT US Army Military Intelligence
  13. I am currently a senior and have started looking through different PhD programs. I've been concerned lately because I happen to have 2 C's (Organic Chem I and Physics I) and I worry about whether this will hold me back. I'm already taking an extra year (2020-2021) to complete my B.S. as well as continuing my research project and I prefer not to go into a Master's program as I am sure that I want to enter a PhD program. Should I be worried about my GPA (overall GPA: 3.5, major GPA: 3.3). Also to improve my chances, I have been considering applying to summer undergraduate research programs (inte
  14. i have a low GPA of (2.5) and i want to study Preferably Business analytics or information system. finding schools is really hard and has become really annoying. i feel i can handle the course well as it is something i have developed an interest in because of the business i am building. Any advice for me or can someone recommend schools i can look at that could accept me?
  15. Hi forum! Please forgive me if I am not posting this question in the correct place. I am sure my question is not as difficult as my brain is making it out to be (application stress maybe?) I want to calculate my sub GPA and I understand ORPAS does this based on the 10 most recent undergraduate courses. I am not confident in how I am calculating my sub GPA due to a course I took after I had graduated from my undergrad. Before I had taken this additional course calculating my sub GPA would have been as easy as using my final 2 semesters from 4th year (10 courses), if I am correct.
  16. Hello all, I am becoming a college senior this fall and I am making my list of schools (MA? not sure yet) to apply to at this moment. Kind of in lost for the tiers of school to consider as "reach" or "safety", I am seeking your advice. My situation is a bit complicated: I am currently double majoring in biology and classics. My biology GPA is kind of low (3.2 ish), while my classics GPA is higher (3.7 ish). I have conducted independent research in biology and have a publication on the way, but I am having trouble sparing time for my last few courses to complete my bio major graduation req
  17. Hello, Currently I'm studying in Tohoku University which, I believe, one of the top Universities in Japan. When it comes to education system, Japan is pretty different from the rest of other countries. I am planning to apply to several top universities in United States which are, indisputably, very competitive. I have a 3.66 GPA which, I think, is pretty mediocre. However, getting 3.65 GPA in my university is by no mean mediocre. The way how my GPA calculated in detail is as follow. GPA = (Sum of {credit *grade}) / (Sum of {credit}) What messed up in my opinion is the wa
  18. Good morning everyone! new in this forum. I'm an undergraduate at the university of Manitoba hoping to apply for the slp program in Western University. Just wondering how they actually calculate the subGPA? I was confused with the "10 full year" courses where they will base off the calculation of the GPA. Thank you! and if there is anyone here who is applying or got accepted at Western I would like to ask for tips and insights in what made you a successful candidate. I am also trying out other universities but western is my dream. Thank you!
  19. My school is one of the most competitive schools in my country, and we have a really bad time with the teachers not giving us enough grades. You can place 15th/400 of the people that graduates in a year with a Gpa of 3.5, and that is keeping in mind that the faculty in itself only takes top %99.9 th percentile of the whole country. So it is really really hard to get GPA in my school. How do i make sure people abroad understand this , and which one is more important to them, the actual GPA or the standings?
  20. Hey! So I am in the process of applying to graduate school in the fall for marine biogeochemistry (chemical/biological oceanography). I had a TERRIBLE semester in my last semester of college (Dec 2017) where my GPA went from a 3.45 (3.58 with my AS degree GPA incorporated) to a 3.16 (not including my AS degree GPA). I got 3 D's (when I am a straight A/B student) mainly because I had a major death in the family, I was overwhelmed, and had a TON of serious mental stuff going on (depression, anxiety). I am SUPER stressed out about my applications at this point and don't really know what to do abo
  21. Hey people, I had a small query regarding my resume. I was wondering if it would make a difference if I omit my gpa entirely from the resume. While not too low, it isnt too high either. Also, if I should keep it, would it be a bad thing to keep it at the very end of the resume? Thanks a lot
  22. Hello everyone, It is midnight and I can not rest until I have some feedback that may shine some light on my chances for getting into a graduate program Fall 2020. I would greatly like to know of others with low or average GPA to share their experience. I will be graduating this May. I hope to raise my GPA with this semesters coursework and gain more experience during my gap year. I reside in California and will most likely be applying to graduate programs in the state. Here are my current specs. Overall GPA: 3.42 GPA in last 2 years: 3.68 Psyc GPA: 3.48 2 years workin
  23. Hello all! Just joined - glad to be here! I'm currently a junior and have been considering going to graduate school for quite some time but I'm not exactly sure what to do to prepare myself as fully as possible for the applications. I've been enjoying my time in college and doing lots of academic and nonacademic stuff not related to graduate school, but I'm kind of a mess when it comes to planning and working towards grad school. I'm an international student double majoring in computational biology and mathematics at an R1 university in the US and enjoying it immensely - and I want
  24. Anyone on here applying to Tulane for Anthropology or Linguistics this year? I've applied to both Anthropology (cultural) and EEB for PhDs, and my partner applied for Anthropology (linguistic) and Linguistics. Tulane is our top choice, so I'm super nervous about getting in/getting funding! My GPA is okay (3.35 for unofficial transcript, probably gonna be 3.5 by final transcript - it's mostly my freshman year weighing me down), as are my GRE scores (QU: 150, QA: 160, W: 4.5), but I've got 2 major research projects, 2 internships, a small business (unrelated to the field of study), and even
  25. 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
