  1. So I'm currently applying for an MFA in film production at UCLA and in the guidelines they don't indicate anything about a personal history statement, however in the application form it seems that we are required to fill it. There are no specific guidelines given and I'm very confused as to how to approach it. I feel like it will sound like my statement of purpose...

    MFA Directing 2019- Let's Connect

    Hi all, I ended up lurking last year and it looked like the forum was helpful and interesting to those involved. So, since I've been chomping at the bit and waiting to take another swing at Grad school, I wanted to go ahead and get the conversation started. About me: I applied to several directing programs in 2015 and went through URTA. Schools: Indiana, Illinois State, East 15, Yale, Northwestern, Cal Arts, FSU, Brooklyn. I interviewed with Indiana, Illinois State, Yale, Northwestern, East 15, and FSU. I received offers from East 15 (couldn't afford it) and Illinois State (not a good fit). My wife applied to MFA Acting programs and was accepted into one of her top choices. So we decided to do that. Last year I applied to Yale again (we decided we could be apart for a year if I got into Yale because...it's freakin Yale). I made it to the first round again and was not selected for the final weekend visit. I can only afford to apply to programs that are fully funded so this year I am applying to Boston U, Brown, Northwestern, and Yale (again). I am seriously considering USCD. Maybe: Purdue and CMU. I won't do URTA this year. Not a great experience. This will probably be my last crack at grad school, so fingers crossed. What is everyone else looking at?
  3. Graduate Students Starting the 2018-2019 year. I am in the Communicative Disorders Program moving down there, and I am coming from Rhode Island!
  4. Hello all, I am finishing up my undergraduate degree in psychology this semester. I applied to Ph.D. Counseling Psychology programs, and I unfortunately did not get any acceptances. One program did offer me admission into their masters counseling program which has opportunities to engage in research. However, there is a post-baccalaureate research fellowship I am highly interested, in which I will have the opportunity to conduct research in an area I am very passionate about. What will make me a stonger applicant when applying to Ph.D. programs next time around... taking a gap year and doing research in my area of interest of completing a masters program?
  5. I'm trying to compare the programs at GVSU, WMU, and Wayne State. Does anyone know anything about these programs? Any comments on pricing and location would also be helpful.
  6. Which of these two schools would be suitable for embedded systems? My interests are in embedded software development and system design.My end goal is to enter the industry asap since I already have relevant work experience as an embedded software developer. Please clarify in terms of courses, financial assistance opportunities and job opportunities . I'm confused and finding it difficult to choose.Need a different pov/opinion/guidance. Any help is appreciated. Thanks!

    Provisional admission

    What are the chances of a conditional admission turning to an official offer ? I got my conditional offer a week back, I was told that I will be contacted by faculty in the next 2 weeks. I still have not heard anything. I am freaking out. Did they pull my offer ?
  8. Hi! I was wondering if anyone out there is working in the "speech-pathology" field while going to grad school. I'm located in Pennsylvania, a state where SLPA's doing exist. I'm curious what kinds of jobs are available to people who want to build their work experience in the field, but don't have a degree yet? Thanks in advance!

    MSW 2018 Applicants

    Hey, everyone! After reading many successful past forum threads for MSW applicants, I decided to start one myself for everybody! From what I saw, so many people took comfort in talking to one another about their stats, stress/anxieties, questions, schools, etc. that I believe it would be beyond beneficial for us. Good luck everyone and I look forward to chatting with you!
  10. So I was accepted to Boston University today, which is my top choice, but with no mention of a scholarship. I see on the results page others have been offered scholarships with their admission. I also was accepted to George Washington University with a $42,000 scholarship. I would much rather attend BU, but cannot without some funding. A few people recommended (politely) using the scholarship from GW school as leverage for receiving funding at other schools. Anyone heard of this actually being a thing? If so, what's the best way of doing it? Thanks for the help!

    MIT Mechanical Engineering Masters

    So I still did not receive any news from the ME department. How bad is this? Does anyone have an idea about what to expect?
  12. Has anyone else applied to/heard back from Pratt's new IXD program?
  13. One of the things I've learned is that as future academics, we need to constantly seeks opportunities. Does anyone know about trainings, opportunities, etc. in the area of health disparities and the social sciences? I'm pretty active on the Sociology forum, but haven't seen this topic yet.

    College of Saint Rose

    Hi All! I just received acceptance to the College of Saint Rose and will definitely be attending. I was so impressed with their program and clinical opportunities and I know I want to attend. Is anyone else going? I'd love to start connecting with people who will be attending!
  15. Let me first start off by saying that I am not doing poorly in linear algebra because I don't understand it, rather there was a misunderstanding with my professor. I had my first linear algebra exam last Wednesday. I was up very late studying for the exam, however, at around 3 am I got super sick (it was something I ate). I was legit puking every 20 minutes, I couldn't make it to my morning exam. I don't have insurance so I didn't see a doctor and get a note. I went to the dean of students, and because of that my professor gave me an offer to replace my zero exam 1 grade with 2/3 of my final exam grade. ex. if I got an 100 on the final exam, my zero will be replaced with a 66. However, the exam averages in this professors class are in the low 70's, so going off of that I will either end up with a low B or C in the class, and thats assuming I score around 10 points above average for the rest of the exams. I currently have two W's on my transcript-- one in computer science from my second semester (retaking next semester) and one in actuarial science from my third semester (he curved the class so only the top 40% passed, also changed my major so I didn't need the class). I am currently in my fourth semester, so this means that if I drop this course I will have a W on my transcript for the third semester in a row. I think this creates a poor representation of who I am as a student, as it shows that I won't be able to handle a graduate school course load because I keep dropping one course every semester. I want to get into a good graduate school for economics. I am currently double majoring in math and econ. I am a transfer, My first semester at my new school was last semester, where I got a 3.3 GPA. I am trying to get this up by getting straight A's this semester and my last two years. If my GPA still isnt high enough, I would be willing to do an extra semester or two to take extra courses. Now, I do believe that I will get A's in all of my other courses, however, I think getting a 'W' in linear algebra will make this look not as impressive. I'm thinking about staying in the course, getting a B or C, and just retaking it over the summer online. The original grade will still be on my transcript, but it won't count towards my GPA. Would grad schools look past this? What should I do? This is such a terrible situation... :/
  16. Hey guys! Have any of you heard anything from New York Medical College, NYU (in-person) or Columbia? Or do you know when we should be hearing back from them? Thanks!

    Engineering Grad vs Undergrad

    Hey guys, I'm currently finishing up my Junior year as a MechE major at UC Berkeley. I am pretty keen on going to grad school to study Mechatronics or Information Systems(not exactly engineering but comparable i guess). The only thing that really discourages me is that I have a lowish GPA here(3.3 with a slight inflation due to humanities courses). Assuming I am able to get into a grad school(USC, Purdue or schools of similar or calibre), I am very concerned about whether I will be able to maintain a 3.5+ gpa there(I've heard most companies prefer that grad students maintain at least a 3.5). I work pretty hard to do slightly above average at Berkeley, and I'm afraid it's severely affecting my confidence about my potential grad school performance(I know this sounds a little naive but hey). I was wondering if someone could give me any insight into what grading is like in engineering grad schools? Are the curves just as harsh? Is there anything I can do to better prepare for the workload? Any advice would be appreciated

    Harvard Housing

    I’m looking for female roommates to lease an apartment from the Harvard University Housing platform. http://www.huhousing.harvard.edu/ I’m an Indian female. I’ve been admitted to the Computer Science PhD program at Harvard. Please reply in this thread if you are interested.
  21. After a Skype interview with a professor, she said she would get back to me by the end of the week (I am assuming about a formal in person interview) but she did not get back to me then or the week after. Is it okay if I email her and ask for an update. I know it is a no but I just wish she would formally say she is not inviting me.

    Decline and Reapply

    I am currently a first year Ph.D. student. I received two offers last year, both of which were really good (at least at that time). I ended up declining one but said yes to the current one. Now it seems that I am wrong, mainly because the environment of the group as well as what I am really interested. I just wondering what is the chance that I reapply the other school and still getting in.
  24. I'm trying to finish up my application for Columbia's CSD program and do not know how to format my optional essay. I know I need to discuss my GRE scores (below par) but focus on how my GPA is great and I have a lot of volunteer/work/professional experiences. Should this be a blunt statement? Or should it be put in a nicer way like every other personal statement? Applying to: Columbia, UVA, UNC, Vanderbilt, Pitt, BU, MGH, Kean, NYU
