  1. Hi All, I'm pretty bad at navigating this site so forgive me if this thread already exists for 2018 but I've been looking at a 2015 edition of this thread and it seemed really helpful so I figured I'd start one for this year. I'm currently trying to decide between: Rutgers: Interdisciplinary. 2 years. full ride. possibility of GA positions worth 7k a semester. #20 in US News Rankings (don't know how they do these but...) University of Florida: Arts + Technology. 3 years. full ride. 22k/year teaching fellowship (20 hrs/wk). #82 in US News. USC: New Genres. 2 years. Wai
  2. Hey y'all! I'm a prospective Computer Science PhD student interested in natural language processing. I've been accepted into a certain Ivy with a great reputation in a great location, but a location which happens to be extremely expensive, as most east-coast cities are. I've also been accepted into another school (henceforth Great School) whose research interests are a bit closer to mine and with a similar--if slightly lower--level of prestige, and in a much cheaper (but also much more dangerous) location. This is a 5-year program, so I want to make sure I'll be happy where I end up. How shoul
  3. I'm deciding between two schools for a PhD in a biology umbrella program. Both schools are comparable in pretty much every way: both prestigious in the field, I am confident I could find research and a mentor that's a good fit, good funding, etc. Option A is close to home, which I didn't want because I've been trying to branch out. I want to live somewhere different for a while, as I stayed pretty close to home for undegrad. Option B is across the country, which would be an adventure like I want. I am leaning towards Option B, but I'm afraid to commit to B because I'm scared that I'll hate liv
  4. I'm currently applying as an out-of-field (psychology and Spanish double major) student to graduate programs that offer 1.) the opportunity to complete prerequisites upon admission and 2.) bilingual opportunities, whether that be through a specific certificate program or they verified that they offer bilingual placements. I obviously have no idea where I'm going to get accepted, if anywhere, but since I won't have much time and all the schools are far from me I want to have an IDEA of where I want to go and what I want to base my decision on once I know where I have been admitted. How im
  5. I've been looking at masters programs in statistics around the mid-Atlantic US region (even as far as Virginia to New Haven). I am looking for programs which will give the most help for getting into a PhD program, such as completing a thesis, having a good ratio of faculty to student in order for individual research and mentoring. Which MA/MS programs in that region are recommended for such a trajectory? I was looking at Columbia's MA program but it doesn't seem to be conducive to my goals - not saying Columbia is bad, but there may be more suitable programs in the region for those like
  6. So I'm curious to hear from some people who have already attended/are currently deciding on programs to apply to- how much did location factor into your decision? (there is a rant below so feel free to skip that and just answer if it's too much reading) Backstory: I'm originally from Texas. I went to undergrad about 2/3 hours away from where I grew up and loved the city I was in. Fastforward to MA applications and location didn't factor in at all for me. After asking for recommendations of programs that fit my interests I realized the closest program I was applying to was Oklahoma.
  7. Hi! I am wondering how much weight do y'all put into the PhD stipend and location while making a decision. I am confused between offers from UConn (polymer science) and UBuffalo (biomedical engineering). UConn's offering 9k more than UB for first year, 10k more for subsequent years. Personally I won't care about stipends so much, but 10k is quite a lot of extra money for grad students. But then again I will be thrown away in the remotest of of villages in UConn while with Buffalo, I will be living in a major city. I have lived in major cities all my life and moving to a place like UConn s
  8. I've been fortunate enough to be accepted into several Psych MA programs, but I'm torn between two because of location and funding. One program is giving me a full ride and a stipend, but the region isn't ideal for me, and it would mean living apart from my SO (east coast vs. west coast) for two years. The other program is in a very expensive area and would require me to take out loans and accumulate student debt (I have none right now). I've wanted to live in this area however, and my SO would only be a 1.5 hr drive away. I'm excited about both programs, and either would tak
  9. Hey everyone, I would like some different inputs on living in Nashville vs Durham. As an international student, I would like to know if the neighborhoods where most people stay are diverse, and views on people of color? I currently live in New York city, and would like to hear your opinions. Thanks!
  10. Hi all, I must say that there are some fantastic answers from post-graduates here like that of @juilletmercredi's endless advice on spending time productively at grad school. I am sure there are many more enlightening posts on the same topic. It would be really helpful if people like her could give meaningful life advice for incoming grads at the stage of making decisions. My dilemma is one that a majority of my peer group, I believe, is facing - research and the guides are two important factors upon which one chooses a grad school, but when one just can't make up her/his mind based
