  1. Hey there! I got a 4.5 on the analytical section of the GRE but both the quantitative and verbal were under the average scores for the two. Should I be worried and retake the GRE? It would be my third time. Feedback would be helpful!!! Thanks.
  2. Hi all, I’m a current grad student going to school for my masters in school counseling. I majored in psychology in undergrad but for a while wasn’t sure what I wanted to do. My undergrad GPA wasnt great (3.1). I’m on track to do well in my masters program (4.0 so far), but I also just started my program this past semester. I don’t have a lot of research experience aside from some typical undergrad research. I recently asked my current academic advisor how I can make myself a stronger PhD applicant (and if it’s realistic for me) so we will be meeting in the future to discuss. Part of my unpreparedness is the fact that I wasn’t sure if I definitely wanted to go this route until recently. It has always been in my mind but after starting my Master’s program, I realized this is something I definitely want to do. I live in Boston so I’d hope to apply to some of the schools around here (BU/Northeastern/UMB/Lesley) but open to applying elsewhere. I’m interested in developmental psychology/school psychology. However, will my GPA in my current program be enough to outweigh my undergrad GPA? What about research experience? I’m trying to find out how I can get more experience here. I did average on the GRE and would definitely retake them. I know no one can give me definite answers here but hoping some people can speak from experience!
  3. So to start I am a second year in undergrad and I am having horrible anxiety over if I will get into grad school. So my first year of school I was pre med and didn’t adjust to first year well at all. After my first year, my gpa was a 2.75. I switched to CSD and I have been LOVING IT!! Well I’m worried that after my first year, I’m not going to get into SLP grad schools... I’m doing much better this semester and I think I’m getting a 3.4-3.5 which will bring my overall up to a 3.0. I’m hoping by the time I graduate I’ll have a 3.4... I just am scared and stressed. and another question, I heard a lot of SLP grad schools look at the last 60 credit hours I took, does anyone have a list of those schools?
  4. 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 stop should be the school admissions website – this will tell you what prerequisites you need, give you an idea of GRE and GPA requirements and what work experience is expected (if any) GPA: From what I’ve seen/read over the years any GPA over 3.4 and you should be competitive. That’s not to say if your GPA is lower than 3.4 you’ll have no chance, but if you have a GPA above 3.4 you should be in good shape. GRE score: GRE scores seem to be most important for schools with demanding quantitative programs and for securing the top financial aid. Most schools will state the average GRE scores for their incoming classes on their website – use these to see how competitive you are. By and large you should be competitive if you score over 650 on verbal and quantitative and over 4.0 on the AWA. For the top schools over 700 seems to be closer to the mark. Work experience: For most programs it will be expected that you have at least 1-2 years of relevant experience in your field. This can be lowered a little if you have other pseudo-relevant work experience (management in the for-profit sector etc.) but you should have shown some level of professional interest in the area you hope to study at grad school. Applicants coming straight out of undergrad may find it very hard to get into the programs aimed more at junior/mid-career professionals such as Johns Hopkins SAIS and Princeton’s WWS. Language skills: For a lot of programs being able to speak a second language is a must, while for others it is just a very good selling point. If you can show experience working in a foreign language this will show adaptability and will endear schools looking to enrol a diverse group of applicants. Quantitative requirements: A lot of schools will want you to show experience in micro/macroeconomics and some maths/statistics courses. You can fullfil these through undergrad classes or by taking courses at a community college/diploma program. Overseas experience (work, study and teaching): Work overseas and study abroad are also viewed extremely favourably by admissions committees and if you have taught English abroad, worked in the Peace Corps or otherwise gained experience living in a developing country this will really strengthen your application. It also shows you to be a go-getter, and that you can bring this outside experience to grad school study. Statement of Purpose: This is where it all comes together. This is your chance to impress the admission committee and show how your personal 'arc' has brought you to this point - being the perfect addition to their grad school. This more than any other part of your application will determine how admit committees view you as an applicant and it's also one of the only application variables that's completely under your control. Having a cohesive narrative that brings together life experience, past academic history and professional experience is a must. It also gives you a great chance to showcase your writing style - so make sure no grammar/spelling mistakes make it into your final revision. Great list of SOP pitfalls If your profile matches at least 3 or 4 of the criteria listed above then you are competitive to apply to an MPA/MPP/IR program. What is most important about any grad school application is showing fit – that is how your profile matches the speciality of that school and its program. If you can’t articulate compelling reasons why you are a good match for them and vice versa, question whether you should be applying to that program. A note on applying to top schools: It is worth noting that nobody here can tell you what your chances of getting into a top program (Harvard, Princeton, Georgetown etc.) because getting into a top program requires a certain amount of luck as well as a great profile. Some people get offers from Harvard with a 2.9 GPA, but also happen to have singlehandedly retaken an allied command post in the Korengal valley. It’s down to who reads your application and what they happen to be looking for with the current application cycle. Spend time improving the elements of your application that you can (GRE, work experience, languages) and don’t waste time freaking out about the things you can’t change (GPA). If you’ve read all of the above and really still can’t tell if your application is competitive, post your profile below.
  5. I’m in the process of applying to three MPH programs: Emory, Georgia southern and university of Arizona for heath behaviors. I just took the GRE for the second time and I got a 151 V and 141 Q 😒 (quant this time around was the same as last). However my GPA was a 3.5 and I have some work experience. How bad will this horrible quant score affect me?? Or should I try for a third go around?
  6. I attached my unedited paper, but I'll paste it here in case you're worried to open it. I'm struggling to write a cogent paper under 30 minutes since I'm a slow writer. However, I'll critique your paper as well if you critique mine! Thank you

    UCLA BioE PhD Late Glitch

    Hey all, I applied to UCLA last week and had some weirdness happen. I submitted on Dec 1st around 9PM PST, with the deadline at 11:59 PM PST that day. After I submitted, I reopened the portal and it lists my submission date as Dec 2nd. It was listing it as Dec 2nd when it was legit still Dec 1st. I emailed the dept but no answer. Should I be nervous about this? Does it matter? A postdoc told me it wont mater since they dont look at this stuff until after break anyway, but I was wondering if anyone else had this issue.
  8. Hello and thank you in advance for reading about my predicament. I am an undergraduate at a regional public university. Let me be upfront--it's not a great school. I was accepted to a variety of really amazing colleges out of high school (University of Washington, St. John's College, etc) but I could not attend due to my parents refusal to co-sign for student loans or help me financially (they had high income so I did not qualify for student aid). So, I worked for a year and a half, more than full time, as a corporate research analyst to save up money for school. At the end of that year, I enrolled in the local branch campus of a major state university. After a semester, I transferred here to a less regarded regional public school. Why? I was studying Public Affairs/Domestic Policy but I wanted a more Internationally-focused program and a school where I could study a language and study abroad. That, and I am paying far less and going into little (if any) debt. I am an International Affairs major pursuing a Gender Studies certificate with minors in Economics and Spanish. I have not yet taken the GREs but I have always tested well, and with practice tests online I have always scored fair-high. My GPA is 4.0 currently and I will probably maintain between a 3.95 and 4.0 for my college career. Classes I have achieved 4.0 in include Statistics, Macroeconomics, Microeconomics, and intermediate Spanish so not all super easy classes. I also have a calculus background (from high school). To give a pretty brief overview of my resume (not including accomplishments), I completed a fellowship with a national (well-known) nonprofit/political organization focusing on international women's health and US foreign policy, participated in the UN Commission on the Status of Women, interned with the Human Rights Education Institute, interned with multiple political campaigns, founder/president of multiple clubs and organizations, was the Budget & Finance Chair of a local political action committee, worked in the International Students office at my university, was a reporter for a student newspaper, student representative on President's commission on gender equity, campus fellow for climate change organization, grant research for refugee organization, social media coordinator for national women's rights organization, done some global women's rights research for London-based organization, done some political/electoral rights research for the UN Development Programme, conducting research on UN for another nonprofit, currently sitting on board of sustainable development organization that works in Kenya, and starting in January as a data analysis/criminal justice reform intern for local courthouse. Next summer I will study abroad in India (women's rights/Hindi) and the spring after next I will study abroad in Spain (spanish intensive). My hope is to study in a fairly quantitatively rigorous MPP program or MIA program, with a concentration in international development. The schools I am looking at include: - Princeton - Woodrow Wilson School (MPA in International Affairs) - Columbia University - SIPA (MA in International Relations) - Tufts University - Fletcher School (MA in Law and Diplomacy) - NYU - Wagner School (MSPP in International Development Policy) - College of William & Mary (MPP in International Development Policy) - University of Denver - Josef Korbel School (MA in International Human Rights) - University of Minnesota - Humphrey School (MPP, concentration in International Development) Is there any way I could get into these schools coming from the school I am coming from? I know Princeton/Columbia/Tufts are real stretches, should I bother even applying? What about NYU/CWM/UDenver? Should I get a few more years of work experience before applying to make myself more competitive? What other experiences should I look for to round out my application/resume?
  9. Hi! I would like to know ho wlong did it take for everyone to receive their GRE writing scores. Thanks!
  10. I'm hoping to apply for an MS in Biostatistics at UF next year, so I need to start thinking about how to cultivate LOR-worthy relationships with my professors. The problem is, UF is huge. The classes are huge. You're lost in a sea of hundreds. Many of my professors outright have "Zero LOR" policies because they just can't handle being bombarded with 70, 80, 100+ requests for LORs every year. The second problem is, it's Biostats. There aren't really any prelim biostats classes I can take right now - just bio, math, and stats classes - so I can't really get amazing letters from people actually IN that field. It would be cool if I was an econ major, had econ professors, and was applying for an econ MS. But that's not the case. My LORs would be from molecular bio professors, or the professor of a Calc 2 class with 400+ students. I have a couple of professors from past years that would probably write me decent letters, but they just aren't in the biostats field at all. They are in the softer life sciences. So yeah, not really sure how to overcome the problem of being in massive classes where professors make themselves unavailable to any type of impression that might garner a decent LOR. Are MS applicants generally expected to KNOW the professors personally, or is it more of a "This student had good grades, was proactive in communicating with me about course content, generally a solid A student." ....help
  11. Hey Guys, Ill keep this question short and to the point. I took the GRE today and got vastly disparate scores on the sections. 169 verbal, 148 quantitative, unknown analytical atm. I know its a terrible quant score, I know studying in the best solution to everything. But I am honest to goodness terrible at math. No need to be gentle, is this quant too terrible for even mid-tier institutions, or is it acceptable if unappealing depending on the school? Thoughts are much appreciated.

    EPFL MTE Should I Submit GRE?

    I am applying to the Masters in Management, Technology and Entrepreneurship (MTE) degree at EPFL. Reporting GRE scores are optional and I realize I should only include the scores if they will help my application, however, since EPFL does not publish any statistics on GRE scores for it's admitted students, I don't really have a gauge on what a good score is. I got a 160 V (86%) 158 Q (68%) and 5 AWA (92%). The quant section could definitely be improved, but for the scores I have now, is it a good idea to submit the scores to show I am a serious applicant and actually took the GRE or are these scores not beneficial to report?
  13. 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 these considerations shape your position. My Response: Throughout time, the rate of aquring knowledge has increased at an exponential rate. Through the acquisition of more knowledge and research, some of the greatest inventions have been made, leaving a great and lasting impact on society. Overall, as we aquire more knowledge, things become tend to bemore comprehensible. One example of how acquiring knowledge makes something more comprehensible is the invention of the smart watch. The smart watch is a device that a person wears that collects data about a person’s sleep and fitness levels throughout the day. The smart watch presents this data, as well as an analysis of the information, to the user. This knowledge can be helpful because it helps us understand the interworkings of our bodies. A common data element that smart watches capture are our sleep patterns. The watch records how much time per night we are in light, deep, and REM sleep. This knowledge can help us determine if we are getting a good night’s sleep, and how we can change our behaviors to improve our lives. The invention of a smart watch and the resulting comprehension of our body’s sleep system was all triggered by someone who acquired knowledge of technology and decided to invent the device. A second example of how learning more about something leads us to understanding is the field of psychology as a whole. As more research is conducted by psychologists, we learn more about the motivatons of people. This knowledge of psychology can be used in endless contexts, but one example is learning and development. Through understanding the motivations of people and how our brain’s store and access information, we can optimize the presentation of material to students, so that they can learn more efficiently. In turn, when people learn more, they are more productive. The only reason humans understand the best way to teach others is because psychologists gained the knowledge of how a human’s brain works. However, even though knowledge creates understanding of previous questions, it can also produce even more questions based on our new understanding of a subject. For example, in the 1980’s we learned that AIDS was caused by HIV. This was an important discovery that lead to understanding the disease in the medical community. However, this lead to even more questions about the sources of HIV, and what kind of measures we could take as a society to combat the issue as a whole. Sometimes it is true that we simple don’t know what we don’t know. Overall, as humans gain more knowledge, things become more comprehensible. As time has gone on, the human race has learned more about many important topics, which has lead to a society that can invent amazing technologies, help others to learn, and heal disease.
  14. Trying to see if anyone has heard from St. Augustine! I had my interview two weeks ago and was told I should expect an update between 2-3 weeks from the admissions board via email. I thought that was a little odd due to the fact that the deadline is dec 15th. Wanted to see if anyone else is waiting to hear if they got in!
  15. Hi, Today I took the GRE General test and got 160q and 156v. For my Bachelor's, I graduated with honors from CS with a 9.34/10.00. However, my CGPA is 8.80/10.0 because I was previously enrolled in another program. I have no research experience, and have been working for around 3 years. Do I have a decent chance of being admitted into ETH Zurich or KU Leuven? TU Delft requires a min. 154v and 163q, should I desist from applying to this university? What Msc programs in Europe would you recommend as a reasonable prospect for my profile?

    'Am I competitive? ' thread (Sociology)

    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!

Concerns: 1. Low Graduate GPA 2. No academic/journal publications yet 3. Applied to Northwestern, NYU, U.Penn & U.Minnesota for Sociology PhD for Fall 2018 and got rejected by 3. U.Minn placed me on the Waitlist, but did not convert to an admit Would really love feedback if I am competitive for the range of schools I plan to apply to. I am posting early only to gain an understanding of what I can fix for the next round of applications.
  17. Hi ya'll I applied to several PhD programs in Cell and Molecular Biology to focus in control of gene expression. As an undergrad I researched in gene regulation, but my lab tech and summer experiences are in neurobiology. Would that affect me if I applied to Molecular Biology programs but most of my experience is from a different field (Neuro)? Thank you

    Recent Grad

    Hi there, Last year I graduated and received a BA in Speech-Language Pathology and I also minored in Child and Adolescent Development. Unfortunately, I have a GPA lower than 2.5, mainly due to serious illnesses I experienced during my time at and also housing was an issue. Now looking back I should've taken the time off to get well properly but I just had that mentality that I could. As many of us in this field know that my GPA is unexceptional for most Grad programs so I was thinking of doing an SLPA program. I am curious if there is anybody out there who has a similar experience or knows someone. Since I've graduated I've been working currently, I am an RBT/ Lead BI at my job, and also completed an Assistive Technology program. Now getting better from an accident (another added to the list), I feel ready to endeavor again. So I am reaching out to anybody who has gotten to an SLPA program, Grad school and did it with a low GPA. Thank you for reading this

  20. Hi, Grads. I am an applicant for phd program of business school and my major includes 1) business analytics, 2) MIS and 3) Management Science or Quantitative methods. My GRE score is V - 152, Q - 164, AW - 4.0 and my dream schools are U of Washington, U of Pittsburgh, U of Iowa and U of Western Ontario. As a matter of fact, these schools are outside top 30 except U of Washington and most of the schools I am applying to range from 50 ~ 100. As far as I searched, I found from the websites that the required GRE score from my future majors are slightly lower than those of Marketing, OBHR and Management. How do you evaluate my GRE score? I am worrying about being screened from the first stage due to my insufficient GRE score. Thank you for your answers in advance.
  21. I'm an international student with 2 years of work experience and an Integrated (UG+PG) MA in Development Studies, applying to US schools for a PhD in Anthropology. I feel the weak link in my profile is my undergrad GPA and I'm not sure what to do about it. II was in an inter-disciplinary programme and had to take compulsory courses in Economics and I ended up choosing a quant-heavy minor as well, which really brought my GPA down. These courses don't matter to Anthro, I guess and schools that I'm applying to have repeatedly mentioned that it's only one aspect of the application. But it still worries me. How does one address low GPA in undergrad as part of the application? I am choosing not to write this out in my Statement, but is there anywhere else I can talk about it, and even if I do, what do I say?

    Grad school chances

    Hi all, this is my first post here. I am currently a junior studying political science and looking at MPP and MPA programs for grad school. I have a list of schools and was wondering if anyone could tell me if I am fit/recommend others? If I need to provide more information please let me know. Academic in College:GPA: 3.69/4.0National Collegiate Honors Society Member Pi Sigma Alpha honor society member of three organizations I write articles for a policy journal at my school 3 internship experiences(2 with state senators/reps, 1 in DC)I will have great essays and letters of recommendations from advisors and professors.Race - WhiteGender - Male From: Illinois, go to school in Wisconsin(state uni)If I do not have a realistic shot at these schools, please let me know what other universities would be a good fit. Thank you and I will chance back.
  23. Hi all, like the title says, unfortunately I bombed the the GRE, 152 verbal, 149 quant. I really thought I'd be fine since I aced my calculus courses in my undergraduate and only prepared 2 weeks. But unfortunately i felt this tested more of my test taking skills since I'm not great at standardized tests. And I did work with a tutor to improve on timed test taking, but I feel like it takes more time to practice out the skills learned to actually develop them. I have a solid GPA, 3.7 and hold a degree in Computer Science. I have interned at top companies, and currently work for a forbes top 50 company as a software engineer and have research experience/1 publication at highly tanked conference. I've only been out of school since this past May. I'm applying for a masters in computer science program and 3 applications are for joint programs, masters/PhD track. I have deadlines coming up, have I completely hurt my chances of getting into top tier schools? This is really unfortunate considering I did everything else right except improve on my standardized testing skills. Its not like I couldn't solve the problems, I ran out of time on the quant sections and had to guess on questions I know I could've solves if given a little more time. Thank you for your help!
  24. Hi Everyone! I just want to chime in here as this application season has been very overwhelming. I am applying for the fall 2019 for grad school in speech language pathology. The road to getting here has been very long as it took me a while to get in this career path. I am currently finishing up some pre-requisites online, studying for GRE, and working on grad school applications. Is anyone else on the same boat? Also, I am 29 years old and the thought of turning 30 in grad school is sometimes a bit terrifying. However, I am determined to defy all the odds and give it a shot to get in a program. I am applying for 13 schools. Anyone else like this? Thoughts? Concerns? Thanks.

    Will my GRE score ruin my chances?

    I didn't have much time to study for my GRE, and I'm not a native English speaker (I'm an international student) so I scored 148 and 147 in verbal & quant. I have a high gpa, undergrad degree in comm. disorders, over 300 hours of work experience in the field, more than 90 hours of direct contact, good recommendation letters, I'm a trilingual, I have much to offer but I'm afraid my GRE score will ruin my chances. do you guys have any idea if I can pass with these scores? and my analytical writing scores haven't come out yet.
