  1. Hello. I submitted all my applications on the 31st of November last year and i have received a decision response from only one school. unfortunately, i was rejected. I also found out that majority of the schools in the US state April 15th as their deadline for accepting/rejecting admission however I am yet to receive any response from the remaining schools I applied to. should i be worried?
  2. I am extremely grateful to be accepted into both these schools, however, I now need to make a decision! I need to choose between the MA in Teaching of English at TC Columbia, or the STEP program with a focus in Teaching of English at the Stanford GSE. Both programs are one year in length - with Stanford beginning this Summer, and TC beginning this Fall. I am a qualified teacher from Australia. The STEP program will provide me with a teaching credential in California, whereas the MA from TC is non cert. At this stage, I am undecided about what I will do after I complete the one year program (whether to return to Australia or go elsewhere). Stanford is looking like it will be around 20k cheaper based on tuition - please correct me if I'm wrong (I am yet to hear back from TC regarding financial aid). Any advice would be greatly appreciated!
  3. Hi everyone, I am planning to apply for a Ph.D./PsyD program in Clinical/Counseling Psych. From what I know, not many international students are in the Psychology program. I am so lost, as I don't have anyone to ask advice from. Does anyone in our forum who is an F1 student and already attend a program, planning to apply? Thank you!
  4. Hey folks! So I was notified today that I have received a scholarship worth 20,000 USD from U of Florida. I was planning to decline their admission offer today. I would have preferred being given some time before re-assessing my decisions, however, I have to make the decision today or else the scholarship offer would not stand. How weird is this???
  5. I am Anita Kumar and I am a second year Neuropsychology Master student in UCL (Université Catholique de Louvain) in Belgium. Next year, after I graduate from my Masters, I am going to pursue my education by doing internships within a certificate year at UCL. This means that I will be a student under the insurance of my university. I want to develop my skills in English, therefore I am interested to do an internship or a pracitucm placement in clinical Neuropsychology with adults or older adults. Would an internship for an international student be possible with a master degree? If so, where should I look for further information to apply ? Thank you for your help. Anita KUMAR
  6. Hi guys, this is my first ever post, so I hope to not be doing anything wrong. I am a mechanical engineering undergraduate student from Brazil, and will be applying for graduate school in the US and in Canada for fall 2020 admission. Since the admission process is fairly different from what is done here in my country, I'm not familiar with the credentials that are considered to be good or bad for top schools (I do know, however, that the competition is fierce and sometimes even the best students don't get in), so any advice will be helpful. Here is a brief overview of my CV: Major: Mechanical Engineering Undergrad University: Top 30 in Brazil, but I don't know if it is well known internationally CGPA: 9/10 TOEFL: 110/120 GRE: Haven't taken it yet, but assume that I got stellar results Research Experience: 2 years at the Fluid Mechanics Lab (Mech Eng department), 3+ years at the Processes and Simulations Lab (Chemical Eng department), 1 year at the Renewable Energy Technology research group (Mech Eng department). PS: I participate simultaneously of these three groups. Publications: - Two as second author at an international congress (automated a device that allows for great precision in wind tunnel measurements and helped formulate a new mathematical model for blood flow). - One as second author at a national congress (had minor impact on this one, just analyzed some data and helped to write the paper). - One as second author at a respected peer-reviewed journal (submitted) (developed a new technology design that increases the energy output of hydroturbines). And, if all goes well, by the time I submit my application, I'll have 2-3 more publications (1 of these as first author) at highly regarded journals in my desired field (these publications are related to renewable energy such as hydroturbines and biomass combustion, plus a publication of experimental work that I'm currently carrying out with a masters student). Accomplishments/Awards: My CGPA may not seem so great when compared to other students, but in my department I'm ranked in the top 0.01% (yes, that's how they call it haha) of ALL students ever. Co-founded a research group with my professor. No awards. LORs: One from my long time advisor, who knows me very well and has been a huge part of my research career so far. One from other professor with whom I also conduct research and also happens to be very close. One from the department head, from when I took a graduate course in which he was the professor, and had the best grades in class. He also is my co-advisor (Got his PhD from Cornell). Extracurriculars: Part of the aerodynamics crew of a SAE aerodesign team. Was briefly part of the robotics team. Target schools: I intend to test my luck and apply to MIT, Stanford, Princeton, Cornell and University of Toronto. I know that it is impossible to say for sure if a CV is good enough or not since the admissions process is a crapshoot most of the time, but I would like to know your honest opinion based on your experiences. Thank you for your time.
  7. Hello everyone ? While looking into universities for the specialization i want to apply for, i found johns hopkins university (although really tough to get accepted in!!!) having it... but the i found that the department, after mentioning that it offers graduate assistantship & health insurance & such to all its matriculated students, it says that international students however are not eligible for federal financial aid! ? does that mean that an international student is not offered an assistantship, covering their tuition fees & provided with a living-expenses stipend? 'cause i thought that assistantship is not related to federal financial aid! or what do they mean by federal financial aid?!!
  8. Got accepted to Syracuse (MAIR), UCSD (MPP) and Evans (MPA). Waiting: Harris (MPP), BU (Masters in Economic Policy), Syracuse (Econ) and Elliott Highly interested in public policy analysis and applied approach to policy making. I am an intl student ideally hoping to work for a think tank Any suggestions? Recommendations? I am excited to hear about your experiences and thought process. Thank you!
  9. So...First post ever. FYI some basic info - applying for Msc. in Europe - Political Science and Social Science related programs. I just got accepted into my backup choice, full ride scholarship included. Yes I am very very happy and excited, yet because it is my backup choice I did not feel that rush of adrenaline that I was hoping for. A voice in my head tells me that if I settle for that (a uni wich is top 600 in Europe) im settling for less. However, another part of me fully acknowledges just how important a full ride scholarship is and how it still is a top 50 under 50 uni and that it IS a big deal and an actual accomplishment. Now, for the actual advice. I need to accept or decline the offer within the next 3 weeks, and if I accept I must take 6 months of preparatory language classes starting the first week of april. However, the results of my top choices be out between mid-February and mid-March. So, what if I get accepted into my top choice and then have to refuse the offer to my back up choice just a week or two before the language courses? I would feel like I have robbed the opportunity of someone who maybe got waitlisted because of me, yet if I get into my top choice why wouldn't I take it, I mean it is my dream.

    Art History MA/PhD questions

    Hello people of gradcafe! After hours of searching the internet with limited results, I figured it's best to turn to the knowledgeable people here for help (= I'm an international student with a BA in history and am planning to apply for art history programs in the US. I found that some programs (such as Hunter's MA art history) require art history credits prior to enrollment as well as reading knowledge of a foreign language. There was only one art history course in my university and a credited internship at an art gallery (of which I both did). So now I'm panicking with a bunch of questions, I understand the best route would be to ask the schools directly but I thought I'd get a more general idea from applicants in the know here. So: 1) How "required" are the art history credits and language requirements for MA art history programs? Is it usually possible to take them during the program? 2) There's no community college credits in my country where I can make up for the prerequisite credits, does that mean I would have to sign up for online classes in the US? If so, does it matter how/where I take them? 3) Seeing that the US offers limited terminal MA in art history, how do people usually go about applying straight for PhD? It seems I'm not even eligible to apply for MA? I've read on here that arts/humanities don't usually expect you to have research/published paper in undergrad, yet it seems pretty required for PhD so I'm a bit confused. I apologize if my questions seem ignorant, any help would be greatly appreciated!

    Application rescinded?

    Hey! I am an international student who's got admission in Cornell's master's program. In my final year of undergraduate studies, my GPA has dropped by 0.11 from a 3.41 to a 3.3 because I took electives which were pretty tough and couldn't cope. Could this be a cause for concern? Will the grad school rescind my application? Honest answers would be appreciated
  13. 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. ?

    Rent or Wait?!!

    Hello everyone. I'm from Egypt, & I'm moving into Carbondale, Illinois next August to start my PhD. I'd like to ask as an international student who can't come to Carbondale until early August, would it be preferable to me to stay temporarily in the first days with someone or in a hostel while I look over studio/1-bed apartments on reality to decide which to rent (so I don't get stuck in something that turns to be bad) OR is it better that I just finish things online before I come & just go ahead & rent online so that when I come I don't find that all the good deals have been taken already?
  15. Hi all, I still have not heard about funding yet. My PI told me that it would take about 2 weeks for her to finalize on the funding after discussing with my co-supervisors. I emailed her after 2 weeks asking for an update only to get a reply saying she will be out of office till end of the month. I am considering emailing the co-supervisors ( but I am worried it might look like I am overstepping ) and calling the admission office. I am an international student and I am worried that I may not make it on time since I have to apply for the visa as well and they still do not give me a decision. How do I proceed ?
  16. Hello, Please have a look at my profile page for more information "about me." I want to include details there to delete later. Building on what's on the "about me" page, I'm half-way through my gap year, which I've split into three main goals: refining my research agenda, learning German from zero to C1, and preparing for PhD applications (GRE, LOR, etc.). The decision to learn German (which I formulated one and a half years ago and never questioned) made this transitional experience (M.A. at home to PhD abroad) more challenging. Students from similar backgrounds (non-native English speakers) should normally be certifying their English skills, while my aim is to certify both German and English before starting the PhD phase. My English is native-like (I hope so ?), so it is just a matter of familiarizing myself with the test. My first motivation to learn German is personal, not necessarily to study in German and Swiss universities; though these are still my fourth option after the American, Canadian, and British. German will always be part of me even if I settle in a non-German country. As you can see from my 'about me' page, I'm not at all interested in any non-academic work. I'm worried whether this reclusive gap year and lack of work experience could have a negative impact on my application to North American universities; unlike these, German universities could easily see the point of spending much of the gap year learning German. I'm also worried that allocating so much time to learning German could be seen by North American universities as irrelevant to their main endeavour (sociological research and teaching in English). My (sincere) justification is that, being a cosmopolitan sociologist, I'm committed to maintaining a relationship with the German sociological community and media (as well as the Arab and the French). Assuming that I managed to convince the selection committee of the robustness and originality of my research agenda, and that I managed to get the highest certificate in German language, good TOEFL and GRE scores, would the reclusive gap year negatively impact my application to North American universities? In light of the information I shared, including the positive scenarios mentioned, how competitive is my application in North America? Thank you for your time.

    Application Status

    Hello, I got the following mail from the Program Director about a month ago: "Thank you for taking time to talk with us yesterday. We will be making offers for admission before March 15." I'm yet to receive an offer. Does this mean I have been rejected? Thank you for your time.
  19. I'm about to start my PhD in Clinical Psychology in NYC at Yeshiva University (Ferkauf health emphasis program) in the fall and I'm a little worried about finances. I haven't heard back from the school about funding yet, but I'm under the impression they don't usually provide much of it. Since I'm not eligible for FAFSA, I'm wondering about other available funding opportunities for international students studying in New York (i.e. bursaries, fellowships, scholarships, loans, grants, etc.). I've looked into a few scholarships, but most of the deadlines have already passed. I will apply to these in the upcoming years, but I would love to hear about what other students in my position have done to fund their studies. It would be particularly AMAZING if anyone from the Ferkauf health emphasis program could provide me with some insight about funding opportunities for international students in that program. Any advice would be greatly appreciated-- thanks in advance

  22. I was wondering if anyone here has applied to these schools? When can we expect to receive admission results for the fall term 2018? Any international student here? Your feedback would be greatly appreciated.
  23. Hello, I'm an international student and I interviewed on Jan 31. After my interview, the program director told me the department will send out offers before March 15. I know its just the 2nd of March but the suspense is killing me. Should I contact the program director and ask for my admission status? Thank you for your time.

    Do I have any hope ?

    Hi, I am an international student, I applied for PhD in 4 colleges, including Case Western Reserve University, I applied late around Jan 1st week. I haven't got any communication from them yet. Not even an interview call. It's March and I am freaking out. I have a GRE score of 319, TOEFL of 112, Master's GPA of 2.84, and Undergrad GPA of 3.59, 1 year research experience, no publications. Do I have any hope left ? Is there anything I can do ?
  25. Hi guys, I recently got admitted to the MS Biostats (Thesis track) program at University of Washington, Seattle. I tried to look up the school website for details about how successful past international students who graduate from the same program are in terms of job seeking. I did not find much. My questions are 1. Is this program a STEM program? 2. Are the most international student who graduated from this program able to find jobs in the US? What is the job placement rate? P.S. I am an international student from China. I am getting my Bachelor's degree from UCLA. Thanks for your help in advance!
