  1. Hi everyone! I really want to understand how different international affairs and public policy, as graduate courses, are. I am planning to pursue master's in either of the courses but haven't really been able to understand how different the career paths are for each. From what I've learned so far, it seems public policy focuses much more on quantitative skills like statistics, data and economics than IA. Moreover, some people have remarked that IA is too general or vague, especially in terms of profession. It would be really helpful if any of you could share your own experience.
  2. Hi! I just have a question for y'all. I'm working on my personal statement. I'm thinking about including a small paragraph about my late grandmother. She became sick after I graduated with my bachelor's and me and my mother took care of her until she passed on a few years ago. She passed away while I was applying to grad schools for the first time. I decided to continue applying anyway. Honestly I wasn't in the best head space back then, but I'm doing a lot better overall now. Do you think it's relevant to include this in my essay? Would it take away from the whole thing? I know it's not
  3. When graduating with a PhD in clinical psychology, does the prestige of your graduate program effect your career in the short and long term? My career goals are centered around academic research with an interest in consulting. I'm wondering if the national reputation of a program (ie. graduating from a school in the top ten vs. top 50) is a significant factor in the trajectory of your career.

  5. 1. GRE: I got 154V, 165Q, and probably 3.5W 2. I finished enough upper division math classes to graduate and my overall GPA is 3.92. Here's a close list of the classes: Math: Topology (4.0); Linear Optimization (4.0); Linear Analysis (3.8); Matrix Algebra with Applications (3.4); Numerical Analysis I (4.0); Foundations of Modern Math (4.0); Discrete Mathematical Modeling (3.7); Calculus I (3.8); Calculus III (3.6); Multivariable Calculus (4.0); Introduction to Differential Equations (4.0); Abstract Algebra I (4.0); Real Analysis I (4.0) 3. I also have done a math research that g
  6. I guess very few people have the same experience with me. I am a student in a top30+ University with a mediocre philosophy department. At the freshman year and the sophomore, I didn't do well in philosophy and only got a GPA of 3.3 roughly. My overall GPA in 3.6. That's absolutely low but I'm catching up now. (As a minority, I didn't acquire much skill to write philosophically when I was in my high school away from US) But I don't want to give up my dream and still decide to pursue a PHD in this area. What's your advice? Should I turn to UK for a master degree? Or there are other ways t
  7. Hello everyone! I'm interested in UT Dallas's program. Can anyone share their personal pros and cons to the program? The website had a lot of information about the facilities and services provided, but I was hoping to talk to someone who is currently attending or have attended the program. Thanks in advance!
  8. Hello everybody, I’m an active duty Marine, currently a junior in an online, for-profit, low-tier (still regionally accredited) college. I’m working towards my Bachelors in Philosophy and I would love to go on to pursue a graduate degree after the military. I’ll be graduating about six months before I leave the service. My GPA is 3.8 and I’ll have a total of 13 courses in philosophy. I’m worried about my chances of admission into any graduate program, the reason being my unusually weird background. The fact is very few veterans go for philosophy, and philosophy seems to be the kind of hard-kni
  9. Hey all, I have just been informed that I am waitlisted for the SLHS grad program for San Francisco State and have been denied from all other programs I applied to in California. Before I started my application process I met up with one of my old professors from San Jose State to ask for a rec. letter. They informed me to look at less popular programs to increase my chances in getting into grad school. Which I now regret not doing. I have tons of experience working in special education (4 years to be specific), have worked in ABA therapy as well. My gpa is not the best (3.41) and I need t
  10. I'm finishing my final semester at college from a pretty good university (top 30 for undergrad). I would eventually like to apply to grad school for a PhD in Economics (perhaps Fall 2021 or Fall 2022) and I wanted to know if anyone has any advice for what I could do in the meantime. I was pretty late to the game, and am only now looking for jobs. I'm not really sure what kind of jobs to apply to, or what to expect, really, given the pandemic, etc. I'm also considering applying to an online Masters in Statistics simultaneously but I'm not sure if that's a good idea.
  11. Hi everyone! Hope you are all staying safe from COVID-19. I registered for this site when I was searching for Graduate School in Data Analytics back in 2018, however in 2020 I'm in Drexel's MS in Business Analytics program finishing up my first year. Below is proof that I am a student. (Crossed some fields due to privacy). . Feel free to comment if you have any questions or concerns I can help answer.
  12. applied for EPFL math for 15 th of January but wondered anybody else who accepted for PhD in mathematics or other fields thanks in advance
  13. Hi, I got admits for MS in Computer Science from Columbia, UT Austin and UIUC. I'm an international student and I'm mostly inclined to go for a job post MS. Can you help me decide on which program to go for? Columbia is an Ivy but looks too expensive. Others are cheaper and have decent CS programs but I'm not really sure how to compare the ROI between them. Thanks.
  14. I have been accepted by University of Illinois at Chicago for MA English (Creative Writing). The department does not have funding for MA students for this particular program. When I told them that I cannot pay, they said I could apply for graduate assistant jobs which could get me a partial fee waiver and stipend. But the problem is that applying for job is chance-based. Its totally possible that I might not get the job. In that case I might be stranded with near to no money. Should I accept the offer?
  15. Hello! I’m an Asian student with offers of admission to the counseling graduate program at both Penn State and UPenn. I’m having a hard time deciding. Penn State’s program is ranked among the top ten, but UPenn seems to be more reputed as a school. However UPenn’s program is only a year long including the practicum , while Penn State offers a two year program with a practicum of 1.5 years. My goal is to pursue doctoral study (not seek licensure for practice) so I’m wondering if I should go ahead with UPenn. I will have to take a loan for either (and the tuition is in the same ball park),
  16. Hi all! I haven't seen a thread specifically for MIT AeroAstro graduate decisions yet and was wondering if anyone has heard back yet?
  17. Hi! Created this thread where we can share admission decisions from Canadian universities for Master's and PhD.
  18. Hi guys!! I know for those applying to a speech-language pathology graduate program, ASHA requires you to have the 4 pre-reqs, one of which is Stats. Would anyone know if it can be any Stats, for instance Stats for Psych, or it must be plain Stats. Thank you guys in advance!
  19. So I've just got an Admit for the SCMP Masters at UPenn. In this program the foundation courses are the same as that of the Data Science Courses and hence are very good. But the other 5 courses are on numeric computation which look very promising but on the Catalog it shows alot of prerequisites for each of these (specifically mechanical courses). Can any current grad provide a feedback on this course?
  20. Hi all, I just completed my application and interview for the May 2020 Speech@Emerson cohort last week. My advisor told me the turnaround time for a decision would be 3-8 weeks, however since I applied so early, it may be sooner. I'm excited because my advisor said the interview went well and everything I've submitted has looked good, but I'm a little worried because my undergrad GPA wasn't amazing. I graduated with a 3.1 cumulative, and my GRE scores were fairly average (I don't remember them off the top of my head ). I'm hoping my personal statement and interview will push the decision
  21. Hey guys! So I am a graduating senior at Pitt. I am a pre-med sociology major and I'm looking into some post-bacc programs to go into next year to prepare for medical school. I have a 2.9 science GPA (thus the post-bacc) and a 3.3 overall GPA. I want to apply to 1-year programs that don't require the GRE or the MCAT and preferably have MCAT prep built into the program. I've already done lots of research on the topic was just wondering what info other people have about potentially good programs. Location in the US doesn't matter!
  22. Can someone help me out to critique my SoP. It is very urgent Symmetry breaking in quantum mechanics is an important concept used to characterize the phases of matter. Crystals break translational symmetry, magnets breaking time-reversal and rotational symmetry, and superconductors breaking gauge symmetry are all different states of matter. The symmetry of crystal structure leads to various electronic Bloch states in a material on which the entire band theory of non-interacting fermions is established. Going through the recent advances in the band theory, I was intrigued by a diffe
  23. Hi everyone! I'm curious to know if any Americans on here have decided to pursue doctoral studies in clinical psychology in the UK. If so, I'd love to hear more about your story (Were you able to practice in the UK afterward? Did you decide to go back to the US to practice instead? Did you have issues with either of those two routes work eligibility-wise? Etc.). Since this tends to be more of a unique case, "Americans hoping to study/practice clinical psychology in the UK" turns up some pretty murky Internet search results, so I'd love some insight. ?
  24. Hi y’all! I have recently made the decision to enter this field. My undergraduate degree is in biology/chemistry, so I need to take the prerequisite courses for slp programs. Were any of y’all in the same boat? Did you take these courses prior to applying to grad schools? If so, where/which programs did you find that allowed you to take just those few classes? Any advice or input would be greatly appreciated! Thank you!
  25. Hey! I applied to Columbia for the MSW program and l sent my application in before the priority deadline (the deadline was December 1st). When l submitted it, l made sure everything was attached and it was sent as completed. But today l got an email saying that they never received my transcript, and that I'm not longer on priority but rolling admission? I was certain that l submitted everything, and now I might have to wait until March to get my answer! Here is my question: I got accepted into NYU with a 15,000 scholarship for the MSW program there. I have to decide for them by Febru
