  1. Since everyone is starting to post results, I thought I'd make a general thread so people can post Q & A, get moral support, etc. To the person asking about the result I posted r.e. a visitation invite to ERAU, the answers to your questions are: to my knowledge the invite is just for Human Factors (it came directly from one of the HF faculty, anyway), yes I am attending the visitation (not sure yet if I will enroll in the program if I receive an offer), and is there anything in particular you wanna know that I should update you on specifically?
  2. Hi all, I've been looking to transition into the field of User Experience Research and Design and have been fortunate to be accepted into a large number of graduate programs for Fall 2020. I had this fear that I wouldn't get in anywhere and ended up applying to a huge mix of programs that I liked, but now I have a tough decision to make. Here are the programs I'm considering: University of Washington - HCDE University of Texas - Austin MSIS University of Michigan MSI University of Maryland HCIM University of Minnesota - Twin Cities HFE Every time I attend an admitted students day I end up liking new things about each program. I am currently leaning towards the University of Washington's HCDE program. My only reservation with HCDE is that I know the cohort is larger, mixed with full and part time students, and has mostly evening classes. I am a little worried about the social aspect and also what to do with my time during the day. I'd consider getting a job but what I'd prefer would be to complete a program quickly and get into the field, still I know Seattle is a great place to be for UX and that HCDE is the most competitive program I've been accepted into. I was doing my own research too but I was wondering if anyone had any feedback as applicants or students on any programs that I should give more consideration to or take off my list. Any information is appreciated while I try to make the best decision! Thank you
  3. Hi everyone! I decided to create a topic for human factors applicants since there doesn't seem to be one for our niche. Here are some potential discussions: What schools are you applying to? What are your research interests? Do you plan on going into government, industry, or academia? Do you have any updates from your program or POI? How are you feeling with your application? What are you worried about? What do you have to brag about? How did you pick the programs you're applying to? Are you going to the annual HFES meeting in Seattle? We're outnumbered compared to almost (probably) all psychological fields so lets create a place to exchange helpful information. Personally, I am applying to only the human factors program at Wichita State this cycle. I currently work in one of the research labs at Wichita State so if I do not get accepted I will just continue to gain research experience the next year and publish my manuscript.
  4. Hey all, I have applied to 3 programs related to human factors and ergonomics/hci. I was wondering if there are others out there waiting it out. Post your results/status and where you applied!!
  5. I graduated from a liberal arts college with an unrelated major two years ago. I am currently working as a data visualization analyst. I am interested in either HCI or Human Factors for Masters; i'm not thinking of phD as I don't have any research experience. My biggest concern is that I have a low GPA of 2.9 and withdrew psychology research method class my senior year. I also took intro to psych classes (both social and natural) and a community psychology class. Would going back to school to take a research method classes be helpful to enhance my admissions? Or should i just keep focus on building technical skills? I feel quite overwhelmed to take classes while working, learning to code and along with my other committed hobby... I feel that HCI and HF are such a broad field that I have to find my niche. Any advice would be appreciated!
