  1. Hi everyone, This is a painful share but I want to believe that I am (not) alone. I am an International student, M.A. Community Psychology and Social Change in the US. GPA 3.95. My GRE score is very low, between 141-144. It was even 139 on my last test in 2019 and writing 3.0-3.5. I was a lecturer in Psychology for 2 years, teaching various classes for undergrad. I have published in a national journal in my country twice, and waiting for 3 more publication from a conference proceeding this year (International Conference held in my country). My research experience so far are mental health
  2. Hey Guys! I know we have a lot of experienced members here who see these kind of posts very often. Can someone please have a look on my following scenario and recommend some programs/schools that seem reasonable for my profile? Please help me out here and feel free to be brutally honest!! Program of Interest: MS Statistics (smth more inclined towards applications especially in data analytics) Undergrad Institution: #218 National University US News & World Report (a US public school) Major: BS Mathematics, Minor: Economics CGPA: 4.00/4.00 (Last 60 hours) Type o
  3. HI everyone, I am in my 3rd round of applications and i already have been rejected from my top school and waitlisted at another. I am still waiting to hear from 1 more school and still working on applying to a couple of more schools this round. I was talking to some family members who were asking why is it so hard to get accepted. I know a big part of my answer was because I have a low gpa from my bachelors degree, 2.7. I have worked really hard to raise my last 60 hours gpa to a still low 3.4 but I worked hard for it. I have retaken 2 speech courses that I initially recieved C's in and
  4. I took the test yesterday. Yes, I'm aware that my scores are low: 146Q and 151V I'm a senior studying Political Science and would continue in the field if I were to go (Comparative). My GPA is 3.6/major is 3.9. I started my search into grad school last year when a professor, in my department, suggested that I think about it. I put that search on pause in spring semester when I realized how problematic my quant score would be. Come this semester, I went and I informed my department of my choice. The professor who had suggested that I go told me that I was letting fear get in the way,
  5. So I just took the GRE last week and my GRE scores shook me to my core. My verbal was pretty okay, I got a 155, however my quantitative is a whopping 136. That's right folks. You heard it right. One three six. I have no idea what went wrong. On my practice test on Magoosh, I got a 145, at least. So imagine my surprise reading that off the screen after 5 long hours of testing! Right now, I am still waiting on my writing score. I was set on not retaking the GRE as I will not have time for another test for the rest of the year, however, this is really making me nervous. I do think and have

  7. Hey everyone. I need some tough love/advice. Here's my situation: In 2015 I finished undergrad with a cummulative 3.19 gpa. I was an slp major, and my gpa within-major was 3.70. Knowing my gpa was quite low, I decided to spend time working and gaining experience. I've spent the last 3 years working as an elementary ABA paraprofessional, nannying, volunteering at a veterans home, and volunteering at a pediatric hospital. I also took a coue ASL classes at the community college just because... My GRE scores aren't spectacular (157V, 148Q, 3W), but I'm studying now, focusing on my writin
  8. So I'm in the process of picking graduate schools to apply to and Im having a hard time of getting past the mentality of applying for the best schools in my field and seeing what happens? (Yale BBS, NYU, Northwestern, Princeton, Brown-basically all the reaches). I can stay a second year in my current postbacc fellowship and have been advised to do so if i want a shot at these schools, but as i have fee waivers and the worst they can say is no, my head is stuck on aiming high and just taking feedback this round. Wondering what some match schools would be though! Also, unsure if id have a somewh
  9. For anyone who hasn't been accepted into grad school for speech pathology, Southern University in Baton Rouge is an option. My understanding is they are accredited and accept applicants who may not be as competitive because of lower GPA and GRE scores. You can go to their website and get contact information. I've heard most people have a good chance of getting into their graduate program. They also have a later application deadline, April 15th. Good luck to everyone!
  10. Hi All, I am waiting for my application results to trickle down and since I haven't heard back from any of the 11 schools I applied to (I know it's a bit early). I would like realistic input on my prospect of getting to any of the programs I applied to from helpful folks out there. (Programs in brackets) Indiana University- Bloomington (Social Psychology) University of Oregon (Social Psychology) University of Cincinnati (Clinical Psychology ) University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (Social Psychology) Stony Brook University (Social Psychology) Univers
  11. Hello everyone! So, I was wondering if anyone has gotten into grad school despite having one or more C's on their undergrad record? My overall GPA is a 3.5 but unfortunately I did get some C's in my online speech courses. I cannot afford to retake these classes as I'm currently unemployed while being a volunteer with the local school district (which I'm hoping will help me experience-wise.) My GRE scores are mediocre, so I plan on retaking that as well but I just wanted to know if the fact that I have more than one C from undergrad will completely destroy my chances of getting in. I know most
  12. Dear GradCafe, What can I expect for myself while applying for religious studies masters programs with a 4.04 GPA and associated awards, a great writing sample, a senior thesis project, superb recommendation letters, a resume that proves my involvement on campus and in the workplace, and these less than hoped for GRE scores: Verbal: 157 (75th percentile) Quant: 149 (35th percentile) Writing: 4. Here are contributing factors to these low scores: 1. my family moved so often during my childhood that I never had the opportunity to learn basic mathematics with any consiste
  13. Hey all, I am looking to see how likely I am to get into the following schools with the following criteria. I feel like I am fitting in somewhere around the average requirements of most applicants at these schools, with maybe a slightly lower GPA. GPA: 3.3 from a small liberal arts school in Ohio GRE: 161 V and 159 Q with 5.0 Analytical Writing Experience: 3 campaign cycles as an intern/volunteer (since '08), 3 campaign cycles as a paid staff in field management and data analytics; 1 year in nonprofit fundraising; 3 months interning with a lobbying firm in D.C.; Only 2 year
  14. My official GRE score came back as 161Q (~80%) / 153V (~59%) / 4.0 AW. I am a bit disappointed since I was consistently scoring between 166-170Q and 158-162V on my practice exams; however, I have no excuse other than the fact that I probably just did not pace myself very well during the actual test. Prior to receiving my GRE scores, I was told by professors and potential advisors at conferences that I have a very strong profile for top 10 PhD programs in my field (Bioengineering/Biomedical Engineering). GPA: > 3.9 at a state university Research Experience: 3+ years. Summer re
  15. Hi People, I have applied to GWU for Fall 2016, PhD in Epidemiology. I have a GPA of 3.85, a great essay, great LORs, 3 publications, about a year of public health research experience, an innovation fellowship, volunteer work experience and a toefl score of 110/120. Unfortunately, my GRE scores are kinda abysmal (54 percentile verbal, 40 percentile quant and 56 percentile aw). 150 & 152 / 170 in both the sections. Should I keep my hopes up?
  16. I am an international student applying for Neuroscience PhDs for next year. I just got my GRE results and was totally shocked! Now, I am wondering if I would still have a shot at a spot at one of the big schools (Stanford, UCSD, Princeton, Berkeley, Harvard, CUNY, Columbia...). This is me in keywords: Undergrads: - Mechanical Engineering (Germany, GPA: 3.7, senior thesis: 4.0, semester abroad at renown US uni) - Economics & Business (Germany, GPA: 3.0, senior thesis: 3.7) Double Master Degrees (by next fall): - Biomedical Engineering (Belgium, GPA: 3.4-3.6) - Neural Engineering (Ir
