  1. Hello everyone! Greetings from India. I have a doubt regarding Masters requirements for a long time. Do universities (globally; say the US or UK) accept early graduates (i.e. those who graduated in 3.5 years), or do they strictly expect 4-year Bachelors students (from India)? I tried to find answers on the web but to no avail. I'd appreciate any information about the same!
  2. To set the scene, I'm from a pretty much third world country, so I guess this story isn't all that surprising. I'm applying to STEM PhD programs in the US. The thing is, I had a quarrel with my research supervisor right before graduating with my MSc. As a result, I was expelled (even though I was top of my class and my thesis was ready). I can't go into details to stay anonymous. I can only tell that the lab in which I was working was beyond abusive. Afterward, I collaborated with some friends and published a couple of papers. Is that OK if I request LORs from them? They are only grad students at the moment. I don't really trust my previous teachers, because it's a small university and all the staff members there are basically close friends. I've been told that the rest of my application is strong enough for top schools. Will this problem seriously hurt my chances? I've read some stuff about it on gradcafe but that situation was a bit different...
  3. I'm in the process of building a free GRE study resource for myself and others aiming to improve their GRE scores (you can check it out here: [removed]). I'm looking for resources to add to the different sections. I'm looking for notes, lesson plans, readings, websites, etc. So long as the material is something you can find online or that doesn't require copyright permissions forms (like notes you've taken from a published work and are willing to share)--I hope you all will be willing to share or suggest. Thank you!
  4. Hi, I would like to know if there are any current grad students from UBC Vancouver here. I will be starting my PhD in linguistics at UBC in fall 20, and would love to get in touch with the current/upcoming students beforehand! Cheers! -Aaditya
  5. Hi all, I've never interviewed for a school before and have one coming up for CUNY Brooklyn College. Anyone know anything about their interviews or writing samples? For those who have interviewed even if at other schools, what kinds of questions should I prepare to answer/to ask them? Any general interview tips?? And if anyone has a Brooklyn College interview coming up as well, let us know how it went after!
  6. I was recently given an interview for the Clinical Psych PsyD program at the Chicago School of Professional Psychology - Irvine, CA. The interview is not until next month but I wasn’t sure about the program or how their interviews are formatted. I’ve done some research on the school but still am not sure about the program. I know that it is CBT and Psychoanalysis focused and that it is currently in the process of APA accreditation. If anyone can give me information about their program, what their school is like, or how their interview process works/questions they may pose it would be extremely appreciated! Also, I have some worries about going into a program that practices psychoanalysis as one of their major schools of thought. Any thoughts on this??
  7. What MFA program would you think is best for someone studying photography and video? I would love to know. Thanks!
  8. What will be the ranking for photonics- Caltech, Princeton, Cornell, UCB, UoMich, UIUC, Gatech, Purdue, UCLA, UCSB
  9. Has anyone else applied to/heard back from Pratt's new IXD program?
  10. I know it’s usually hard making friends in Grad school because it’s way different to undergrad. Here is a place for incoming McGill grad students to meet each other! Maybe we could state which program we are doing and where we are from?
  11. 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?
  12. Hey guys! I just got accepted into CMU's MHCI program and am so happy. I'm just waiting on University of Washington MHCI+D's decision. If I get rejected from UW, I'm going to CMU. However, if I get accepted to UW, I'll have to make a decision. I might be jumping the gun here, but I want to get some outside thoughts and give myself enough time to think. I'm leaning towards CMU because it seems to be slightly better overall. Is there any reason that someone should take UW over CMU? UW is a fair bit cheaper, and it's located in Seattle where it will be easier to transition into a job afterward (but I don't think job placement is an issue with CMU). I know that CMU is focused a little more on theory, but they still have the capstone project to help build a portfolio. If anyone is also making a similar decision please share your thoughts! Any insights to the program beyond what's on the websites would be really helpful. Thank you!
  13. Hi everyone I am from Turkey, I will start studying PhD starting August 22. My visa appointment went very well, the officer asked me only three questions, didn't ask for any additional documents and instantly gave me an approval. He even wished me good luck . However, I got my passport back 10 days later, with a yellow-colored paper attached (and without a visa). It was explained that my application required further administrative processing, but it wasn't explained why. Is there anyone here who had a similar experience? Why could this have happened to me? How long did it take you to get your visa issued? Is there anything at all that can be done to expedite the process (although I know the answer is simply no, but one can always hope). If I can't get my visa in time, I will lose my TAship and will have to defer my PhD
  14. Graduate Students Starting the 2018-2019 year. I am in the Communicative Disorders Program moving down there, and I am coming from Rhode Island!
  15. Hey everyone! I am fall 2019 applicant for poetry MFA programs. I've seen that people have been getting acceptances back from Ohio State's program and I was just wondering... has anyone been rejected? I'm not sure how they do their send outs but I was just wondering why they wouldn't have sent out rejections if they're sending out acceptances! Thanks
  16. 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... :/
  17. Hello, I am looking to hear from those who are or who have been a distance GRADUATE SLP student. What was your experience like? I personally can do the traditional on campus student experience right now, but in a year my situation could change. Therefore I am wondering if it is smarter to attend a distance program from the very beginning. Do you feel like you learned the material well? or do you wish you would have had more of the on campus research experience, and clinical involvement? Thank you for your advice.
  18. Hi all, I am looking to hear from those of you who have attended any of these schools for SLP grad school. Idaho state, University of Montana, , Wyoming, Washington State, and Eastern Washington University. Some question I have specifically: 1. Do a lot of students receive funding? I will by an out of state resident and some of the schools listed don't offer to WGRP, so I will have to pay out of state tuition. I am wondering how likely it is to get it waived or get funding to help with the cost? I have competitive application: 3.98 GPA, 152 V 158 Q, 4.0 AW. 2. What are your experiences with the clinic? Do you feel like you are learning within the clinic and are becoming ready to be working on your own? 3. What is the major focus at your school? Thanks for all your help! I greatly appreciate it!
  19. 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...
  20. 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?
  21. 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.
  22. 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!
  23. 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 ?
  24. Hi- I've been out of undergraduate for about 2 years now and working professionally in the business/IT field and I was accepted to do a Fulbright ETA (English Teaching Assistantship) in Europe which is something I was really interested in but wasn't sure if I'd get it given my background. However, now it's a reality and I'm faced with a dilemma. I'm not passionate with the career/field I'm in now as I'd like to get into doing analytics/data work so I applied to a few very competitive grad schools and only got into one of my back up schools for the upcoming 2019 year. I'm not crazy about the program I was accepted to as I was interested in one with a better curriculum and opportunities for jobs in data science. I can defer it up to a year as well. I know the Fulbright scholarship is very prestigious and recognized in the US but do you think it will help my chances of getting into a better school/program/job the following year after my Fulbright? I'm hoping to take advantage of my ample free time (which I don't have too much now with my current job) with the Fulbright to devote time and focus to take relevant classes in the field I'm interested in, do a research project, or even pursue an related internship to stand out on future grad/job applications. Overall - I'm looking to see what everyone thinks about Fulbright/grad school. My current company is a large corporate firm with global opportunities but I'm just not heading in the career direction I want to. If I forgo to the Fulbright grant, I could try to do work FT and go to school part time but I'm just not sure how happy I'll be as I'd want to be dedicated full time in the studies but that would also be more of a financial burden for me to go to school FT. I think the Fulbright ETA would be a terrific experience and I'd develop a lot of valuable skills and intl experience but I just don't know how helpful/useful teaching English and the prestige of the program would be for my long term career goals (and if it'd hurt me in the professional world). I would love to hear thoughts from the community.
