  1. I received full funding for my Masters with the Ph.D. program at ISAE France (Renowned European University for Aerospace, few might be familiar). But I am waiting for my Ph.D. Application results from Ivy League schools and some top schools in the USA. I am supposed to send my decision within few days to ISAE with a down payment. But I can't make an informed decision without knowing the results of other US schools. IShould I wait for the US Universities results with confidence or secure this admission as a backup option by making the payment? For the record, I have good GPA, 4 Research experiences, 3 Publications, and some other accomplishments. Overall a decent profile for any Ivy League school. If anyone got any suggestions, please post your comments regarding this. Help!!!!!!!!!
  2. Hi everyone, Long time lurker, first time poster. Wondering if anyone could provide some insight on my candidacy for applying to a terminal MA program in history. I feel a little overwhelmed about applying to US schools as a Canadian, and I don't have a GRE score (which, understandably precludes me from many schools). Nonetheless, I'm interested in applying to Yale, NYU, McGill, UBC, and the LSE/Columbia joint MSc program in international history. To be honest, I'm desperate to get some information about where I stand. I know this is hard to answer but I'm trying to ascertain whether I am in way over my head in applying to these top tier schools (namely Yale and LSE/Columbia). Here's my current stats: Undergrad Institution: T3 Canadian school (history major) GPA: 3.8cGPA, 3.85 within history program Extracurriculars: varsity athlete, undergrad history journal editor, student government, model UN, greek life Work Experience: History internship overseas, communications internship for a non-profit, volunteer EMT LORs: Three confirmed LORs from professors in the history department, including the chair of the department So tell me straight! Given my GPA, work experience, extracurriculars, what are my chances like?
  3. Hello All, I’ve submitted my application to their program on 04/09/2020, and received my waitlist status on 04/23/2020. I’am supposed to hear back by 4/15 regarding my application. I’ve sent a confirmation of interest letter to both the admissions office and the dean. I’ve never thought that I would be considered for admissions at an Ivy League. So I’m still in a little shock. I’m also worried. For anyone that was waitlisted and had an additional three weeks for an answer, how did you cope or distract yourselves? A little about me... The reality is that I never thought I’d be a college student (I’ve completed both my bachelors and masters, GPA is a high B). My volunteer work is almost a page long, and I’ve even founded a charity that had raised $1,000.00 for a high school student. My confidence as a student came from the completion of my degrees. However the Big Ivy League status still intimidates next. Kind of like the socially awkward kid asking the cool kids to accept them? Sounds corny, but it’s true. Any words of encouragement would be great.
  4. Hello everyone! I am new in this Forum so I don't exactly know how it works... But anyway, I am going to explain my situation and see if I can get any help (which I would really appreciate). I am planning to apply to my PhD this fall as an international student. I am from Europe and I did my bachelor there. It is my first time ever applying to an American university, so any advice would be helpful. - Bachelor/Masters in Pharmacy (I put Masters because it takes 5 years, it is considered Bachelor+Master in Europe, and I have a paper that gives it the academic equivalence to Doctor of Pharmacy in the US, if that works). My GPA is 7.1/10. I know. Everyone is going to think that is really low, but in Europe and in pharmacy school, nobody has a GPA of 9/10, for example. So mine is pretty good at my university. I also have honors in my final thesis (cancer-related) and it is considered the best thesis of my promotion. - Research experience: one semester as an undergrad (around 25 h per week), 6 month as an exchange student in America (no classes, just research), currently doing research in one of the Top20 Universities in the U.S. (not an Ivy, but ranked better than most of them). By the time I apply my experience in this last university will be of 1 year but by the time I start my PhD it would be of 2 years. - Other experience: 1 year as a retail pharmacist, 6 month internship as a clinical pharmacist in a Hospital in Europe. - Publications: 3 posters (2 Top European conferences and 1 at the university that I am working in right now) but no PubMed publications... - Speaker at one conference. - Lots of volunteering in Heathcare. I also just got a 6-month fellowship (cancer-related) from a really prestigious foundation, only 27 people in the U.S got it and it was one per institution. TOEFL: I took it a while ago and I got a 104, the minimum required is 100 in most Ivys, maybe I will retake it if I have time. GRE: Haven't taken it yet but I am currently studying for it, I am planning to take it in one month. GRE Biology: is it worth taking it? I wanted to apply to Ivy leagues and high-ranked universities for my PhD in Cancer Biology, but I also want to be realistic and know honest opinions as if I stand any chance to get in. Thank you!
