  1. Can anyone please share their impressions of the MSW program for clinical practice concentration at Columbia, NYU, UPenn, UCLA, Chicago, UT Austin and UM Ann Arbor. Perspectives from international students/graduates will be extremely helpful.
  2. Hi everyone. I am a newcomer at Gradcafe and this forum is very, very helpful. I want to pose questions here about the planning of the application year. I shall only be applying to socio-anthro departments or to area studies departments for Fall 2021 session. I am an international applicant. Some of my questions are; 1. Exactly WHEN should we email our POI's? Most have advised me to email between July and November. While others have said that mail at any time of the year. What is a good time to write to them? 2. HOW MUCH detail should one give in emailing POI's? My proposal is just a one line in my head at the moment and I have no idea how it will shape up. I'm doubtful about the different ways in which I would take this research proposal forward given that deadlines are 10 months away. 3. HOW SHOULD I PLAN THE WHOLE YEAR?: I was hoping for some advice regarding the different things one MUST do in an application year. For instance, mailing POI's, taking the GRE TOEFL, working on the writing sample etc. but are there other things one should be doing? I have only recently decided to apply to the US and have very little knowledge of the process. I have a lot of free time and now sure how to best put it to the application year. It would be great to receive responses from you all. Thanks a lot! Happy Week to everyone!
  3. Hello. I'm freaking out a little bit, so it would be really helpful if someone with relevant knowledge could help me. I'm a foreign student (and non-native English speaker) applying to Columbia's graduate program in English and Comparative Literature. I just sat the GRE and got 162 (91 percentile) for the verbal section (my quant score was 159, but I have read that's basically irrelevant, right?). The program's website states that successful candidates "trained in the U.S" have "almost always" verbal scores in the 95 percentile. As previously stated, I'm not a U.S. trained applicant; however, I'm freaking out that not having reached the 95 percentile would disqualify me from such a competitive program. Have any of you have or know of someone admitted to that program with verbal scores below the 95 percentile? This is my first choice and my dream program and I want to be realistic about my chances, which I might have overestimated. I have a GPA equivalent to 4.0/4.0 both from my alma mater (which is not a top university, but the best one from my country and one of the five best from Latin America/Spain, and certainly recognized worldwide), as well as the highest grades possible from a semester abroad at a top university in the UK. I have relevant work experience, (non-academic) publications, merit-based scholarships, academic translations published by one of the most important publishing houses of the Spanish-speaking world, very strong recommendation letters from professors from the two universities I attended, and I strongly believe I'm a good fit (I also think my SOP clearly illustrates that). I'm I delusional or I might have a chance even with the subpar GRE scores? Thank you in advance!
  4. Hello folks, I am currently exploring MPP/MPA courses in the USA with an intention to apply for Fall'2018. I am specifically looking at courses which combine Public Policy with Science/ Analytics/ Data Science like UChicago's MS in Computational Analysis and Public Policy (MSCAPP) , CMU's MSPPM- Data Analytics Track. I have a bachelor's in computer science and engineering from India and 2 years of work experience as a big data engineer at a reputed MNC. In addition I have considerable amount of part-time public service experience and I am working on a project that applies big data in the development policy space. Considering my profile, what are my chances of getting admitted into such courses at the top schools. More importantly, since I am an international applicant, what will be my the job prospects post such a graduate education? What are the job prospects of a policy student specializing in data analytics? Is the data analytics segment of such courses strong and rigorous enough to land me a job in the private sector in case the policy space does not have the desired openings? Also if you know of any good programs along these line, please do recommend Any help will be greatly appreciated
  5. Hi, I have been accepted to MA clinical psychology program in University of Central Florida and University of Colorado-Colorado Springs. I have limited information regarding both university except details of the program because I am an international student. I can choose to major in trauma psychology in University of Colorado-Colorado Springs but i am not 100% sure on making the decision. Any information on academic, student life or anything related to the programs/universities would be helpful. I am very confused. Thank you.
  6. Hi all, I'm an international applicant who needs to provide both my TOEFL and GRE scores for some of the PhD programs in English and Comparative Literature. I heard that for some programs, a total GRE score of 319 plus a decent TOEFL score will do the same as a 320+ GRE score (which is exactly my case, as I scored exactly 319 (157+162+4.0) for GRE, and 113 for TOEFL). I wonder if my GRE verbal score of 157 will be considered too low to be competitive (even for programs ranking 50-60). Shall I email specific programs to ask whether my TOEFL score would compensate for my GRE verbal score? or is it obvious that the two don't actually compensate for each other? Thanks!!
