  1. I know it is pretty late but I just want to know if I should apply to more safe universities. Country: India Undergraduate institution: Reputed university in India GPA: 60.75% (can't convert to US GPA as i am not sure which formula is correct) Master's from a private university. GPA: 3.7 Interested course: Ph.D. in materials science Research experience: I have done a 2 month project which led me to file a patent, a 4 month project (I am currently writing this paper) and there is another project going on right now. All these projects are related to my field of interest and were done in my postgraduate university. i have done no internships. I do have a book chapter that was accepted for publication by Springer International Publishers. Along with that I have presented a poster in an international conference. GRE: 163 q 163 v TOEFL: 111 Applied to: Uni of Michigan, Uni of Colorado Boulder, Georgia Tech (chemistry department), Casewestern Reserve (chem department), Texas A&M (currently struggling with the application), Uni of Delaware (considering to apply) Can you please suggest me where else to apply. Although deadlines for most of the universities are over but there might be some left. I am very confused whether I should aim higher or lower. Should I apply to universities having rank < 500. Please help!
  2. I am currently a Psychology major (junior) and am stressing about whether or not to withdraw from a class that I might get a C in. It’s been a roller coaster deciding my career path but I have finally decided on attending a Ph. D. program for clinical (or forensic) psychology after my undergrad. It should be noted that I also plan on either doing Post Bacc or getting my Masters to boost my resume with research and letters of rec to further show my dedication to applying to a Clinical Psychology Ph. D. program (as I know they are very competitive). I started out planning on Med School, but Sophomore year I changed my path to Physicians Assistant school, withdrawing from my Physics class which I was about to receive a C in. I changed my major to Psychology (because I loved psychology) and planned on just filling my electives with the science classes necessary for PA programs (i.e. organismal bio, organic chem, etc.). Here I am, now a junior, and after getting into my psychology classes and assisting with some research, I decided that psychology was my passion. BUT I am in a crisis as I am currently enrolled in Microbiology (as one of my electives) and I may get a C in the course. I have a 3.87 but, if I receive a C I will be bumped down to a 3.75 and that worries me for applying to not only a masters/post bacc programs but also a PhD programs. I know it is still a relatively high GPA but I really want to increase my competitiveness as much as possible and strive to get as close to a 4.0 as I can. I guess my question is, if I withdraw from this class, will graduate programs (masters/post bacc/phd) care? I would have two Ws on my transcript and although they are not considered to be classes relevant to my major, it still worries me. PLEASE HELP!
  3. Hey y’all! I am in my senior year of undergrad speech & looks like I will be ending this semester with 2 C’s (possibly B’s if a miracle happens) I am scheduled to take my GRE Friday & feel fairly confident. If I don’t score well I can always re-take it. I am just concerned about getting into ANY grad school with C’s. I feel extremely discouraged & kind of defeated at this point. How possible is it to get into grad school with C’s? I feel really good with my LOR, volunteer hours & personal statement but I am just really starting to freak out. Any advice, suggestions, etc? Thank y’all so much!
  4. Hi everyone, Im in the middle of the process of applying to clinical psych phd's and I'm really starting to freak out. I'm only applying to funded programs, so they're more competitive (not outrageously but most are top 20). I graduated with a BA in psych and i'm in a masters program now. My undergrad overall gpa was 3.48 but psych GPA was 3.8. My masters has been a really challenging program (intentionally not taking grade-inflated classes and also working in addition to being in a lab), so my gpa is about a 3.6. I have really strong letters of rec, about 4 years of research experience with numerous posters, and additionally my current masters thesis is a data analysis that my mentor wants to submit for publication. I have one official publication and two publications that are currently under review (one which I am first authoring). My biggest concern is I feel like my statements, research experience and letters of rec are the only thing my application has to offer.... In addition to my meh GPA, I am continuously getting low GRE scores, even with practice. I know I'm not stupid, but I've never been the best at standardized testing 😕 Most of the programs I'm applying to are a good research fit, but I'm just scared by GRE will be the nail in my coffin and will immediately deter programs from even looking at me. I guess I'd just like to know some honest opinions, or if anyone else out there has had/or is having a similar experience to me? They really expect us PhD applicants to walk on water lol 😕 I appreciate any and all advice or comments.
  5. Hey guys ! I’m currently taking prerequisites for grad school which I have been getting straight Bs in. Mostly high bs. I know that many of these programs accept higher GPAs on average and don’t know what to do. I’m not a great test taker, but everything I learn that’s applicable at my job I excel at. I work at a pediatric company as a child Development Specialist & a registered behavioral tech. I also work with SLPs providing support with speech goals & help with feeding goals as well. Will this experience help to balance out my low GPA & possibly low GRE score ? I know speech is highly competitive. If anyone has any advice, or similar experiences please let me know ! I’m beginning to stress as I apply to grad schools this fall ! HELP !
  6. I received admissions to two graduate programs that I'm currently viewing as relatively equal, and I was wondering if I could enlist your/someone's help in choosing! The pros/cons are not ranked despite the numbering. School 1: Pros: Prestigious school US school in my field Closer to relatives and family Weather is great and proximity to nature is excellent. Focus on scientific outreach into communities Beautiful campus Well-established POI with a currently small lab Fully funded with tuition remission and 18k stipend;Assistantship New environment Excellent course offerings for my interests/needs Strong field work culture I can actually apply to government scholarships here. Cons: POI doesn't work on what I want to work on exactly, but is in the same field and seems willing to cater to my specific interests... I really don't know how much they will, though. Lack of modelling work done at this Uni, which is basically half of what I want to do. School 2: Pros: Also a prestigious school in my field (but less) Alma mater/I wouldn't have to move Established rapport with POI POI has been clear that they'll facilitate my research interests to a T. Other faculty who I can really learn from on my committee Strong modeling culture Cheaper overall tuition Fully funded I know people here. In a city Cons: Community here. I don't really feel like I fit in. Weather. Far from family... very far. POI is relatively new (3 years) Lack of scholarship/grant opportunities (specifically for me, because I'm considered int'l) Same environment Lack of courses that I would want to take to facilitate my research/profs for that part of my committee. I know people here. All else aside, cost of living is about the same between the two places. If you guys could give me a hand, I would really appreciate it!
  7. I was surfing the results section and noticed one person was accepted to one of my top choice programs. I have not heard back from this school. Do programs typically send their acceptances at the same time? Or does it vary among like a two or three week period? The person said they found out last week via e-mail, is it okay to contact the school and ask if I was accepted?
