  1. As a college senior myself, should I relax during the period when I get admitted to grad school? Because this is a path of no return...
  2. I messaged some potential advisors on Sept (got good comments but they do not accept students directly, just through a commitee). I thanked them for the encouragement and I told them I would mention them in my SOP. I have applied to 15 schools and just 1 interview until now. Should I message again these professors to say I applied and idk, wish them happy holidays? Might look desperate but would like to hear some advice.
  3. University of Toledo Family and Child Development Lab (PI: Dr. Cin Cin Tan; https://www.utoledo.edu/al/psychology/people/faculty/tan.html]. Research areas: social development health, parent-child relationship, coparenting, eating behaviors, body image. To learn more about Experimental Psychology PhD program, https://www.utoledo.edu/al/psychology/grad/experimental/. Apply here. Deadline: 12/15/21
  4. I just wanted to start a form for black applicants and grad students which advice on different programs, where we are going, and climate!
  5. Anyone heard anything for McNamara or AAUW grants? 2021-2022 program.
  6. Hi! Created this thread where we can share admission decisions from Canadian universities for Master's and PhD.
  7. Hi! Anyone apply for Ph.D. in Psych and Law or Social with a concentration in Forensic?? I did and I'm freaking out.
  8. 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. Some stats about me: I did my bachelor's last year in computer science engineering with a cumulative GPA of 9.96 on a scale of 10. Currently working as a data science engineer. I don't really have any experience in the relevant fields and am an international student hence I really am confused since most colleges seem to prefer st opportunities in the public sector.
  9. Hello! Could someone please review my SOP for CMU's MSE program? SOP Guidelines are provided by the program.
  10. 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 related to the field, but it was an experience that made me stronger as a person. I'd appreciate advice, feedback, etc. Thanks in advance 🙂
  11. 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.

  13. 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 got accepted to a conference and hopefully will be accepted for a journal later this year or in 2021. I also attend a summer fellowship and make some presentations in the conferences hold by UC schools. We tried to submit it to some conference, but recently got reject, and actively trying more. In both research, I use Python, and work in Linux system. I know both Tensorflow and Pytorch fluently. 4. I have worked as a data analyst for one year in a marketing department and during the work I use R intensively and Python. 5. The programs I want to apply are Statistics. Overall Question: I mainly concerned about my GRE sore, 165 is not a strong Quantitative, and 154V only surpass 64% of the participants. Is it worth for my to give another shot or applying the schools with what I have? If apply the school, may I ask what level of Statistics programs will be suitable for my background? Thank you in advance for your advice!
  14. 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 to go? Very glad if I could receive any help! Sincerely George.
  15. 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!
  16. 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-knitted academic discipline to not have any flexibility whatsoever. I’m pursuing philosophy in the only way I know (my college is the only online affordable university which offers philosophy), but is that enough to compete against more traditional students? Assuming I keep a good gpa of 3.8/3.9, I get great GRE scores and a phenomenal writing sample, how bad is my non-academic background/low-tier online education going to affect my chances of admission? If you want any more information, I can provide it. Thank you!
  17. 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 to definitely improve my GRE scores. Though, I really don't feel I'm that much of a horrible candidate. Anywho... My question is, has anyone ever been placed on a waitlist for a program and have reapplied the following year and have not gotten in to the same program they were waitlisted. What are my chances if I reapply for SFSU next year? Also, what out of state programs should I apply to that won't break the bank?
  18. 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. Below is a rough overview of my profile. Mathematics and Economics Double Major. Statistics Minor. Cumulative GPA: 3.67 | Economics GPA: 3.97 | Mathematics GPA: 3.65 Undergrad Teaching Assistant for 2 years Honors Thesis in Economics: Graduating with High Honors, and trying to get it published I have really good relationships with a number of my professors from the Economics and Statistics departments, but I haven't asked for any letters of recommendation yet because I'm not sure what I'll be doing in the next year. I am yet to take the GRE. I'd really appreciate any advice on what would be a good use of time/ what I should focus on now to eventually get into a good program. Thank you!
  19. 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.
  20. 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
  21. 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.
  22. 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?
  23. 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), so the financial aspect does not count. Plus I have professors whose research interests are closely aligned with mine at both universities, so I’m quite torn. What would you guys do or advise?
  24. Hi all! I haven't seen a thread specifically for MIT AeroAstro graduate decisions yet and was wondering if anyone has heard back yet?
  25. 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!
