  1. Hey guys! Like I mentioned in the "Masters Applicants for Fall 2018" thread in Waiting It Out Forum, I have created a thread for BME/Bioengineering people! Even though I have not received all the results back from schools, I probably should start researching into the schools I got accepted to make a wise decision! This thread is to share and exchange information about BME/Bioengineering programs of different schools. I will try my best to gather information about schools, using all my resources (internet, friends, visiting campus) and update this thread. And... I would greatly appreciate if you do the same! I assume the topics will be about... Curriculum, School Atmosphere, Prestige, Career Services, Students, Faculty, Facilities, Research, Location, Quality of Life, Tuition, Cost of Living, etc. I'm tagging a few of people from "Masters Applicants for Fall 2018" thread to get this started. @scared @mungbean_ @BME_Engineering @lafry Current BME/Bioengineering students (grads and undergrads) are more than welcome to comment and add any relevant information for us! Thanks!
  2. I just wanted to make a thread for Masters applicants for Fall 2018. I see a lot of posts are for PhD applicants but not really Masters! Where did you guys apply? What kind of programs did you guys apply for? Have you heard back from any of them yet? Let's talk while waiting for the results =] Here's a little bits of how I'm doing: Field/Program: Biomedical Engineering, M.S. and M.S.E. Schools: UCLA, UCSD, UC-Irvine, Duke, Rutgers, Boston, Johns Hopkins Status? Haven't heard anything back yet... Although I was contacted by one of the professors from UCLA.
  3. Hello. I need some advice and help from you guys. I will greatly appreciate them! 1. I have heard from someone that many graduate programs admit students on rolling basis. Is this true? I have been researching schools for some time and I have not seen any mention of "rolling admission" on their websites. I was a bit panicking when I heard this because I just started narrowing down my school list and filling out the applications and I think I will be able to submit it right before the deadlines.... 2. I have B.S. degree in molecular biology. I have read some posts that it is doable but a lot harder to get into engineering programs with B.S. degree in biology. (The reason I am going for MS instead of PhD is also because I am bio major.) I was aiming for very top schools (top 10) because my GPA and GRE scores are competitive, but now I am not sure what kind of schools I should apply for. I do have some industry research experience: a little more than 2 years at a diagnostic device company (company manufacturing things like pregnancy test kits). I did not do anything really engineering-like because the company does not manufacture biosensors. 3. Consider my circumstances (#2) and stats below and recommend me schools that would give me some chance. GRE Q: 165 V: 162 W: ?? overall GPA: 3.74 major GPA: not sure but little higher than overall GPA Publication - 1 publication but it was during high school and I barely knew what's going on (it was computational organic chemistry) although they gave me credit for it.. so... it's negligible.. Research experience - one summer as a lab tech in a pathology lab; 2 years as a R&D research scientist at a diagnostic device company, responsible for developing new products (as mentioned above) Recommendations - 2 okay ones from my undergrad; 1 excellent one from my supervisor at the diagnostic device company
  4. Master's programs in clinical psych tend to be research-oriented and focused on preparing students for doctoral training. Is anyone aware of master's programs that are applied/terminal programs that allow you to become licensed as a professional counsellor or psychological associate? I know of one, which I am currently enrolled in but am curious to see whether there any similar programs out there. Sidebar: I know that a master's in clinical mental health counselling is the alternative to clinical psychology programs for those who aren't interested in research; however, I'm focused on clinical psych programs that give you both the option of terminating or advancing to a phD.

    BME: M.S. UC Davis vs. MEng at Duke

    Hey guys, I have been admitted to my two top BME programs so far: MEng at Duke University (cost is ~40k for 18 months) M.S. at UC Davis with funding and stipend (24 months) I'm about 99% sure I don't want to get a PhD so I plan on going into the industry right away. I have done quite a bit of research but don't want to conduct research long-term (I'd rather go into management/consulting). My dilemma is that Duke is a much higher ranked school in terms of their BME program than UC Davis (4th vs 22nd). I'm not sure if this includes the MEng program since it is run by Duke Graduate School rather than the Pratt School of Engineering. On the other hand, UC Davis is very well connected with biomed companies on the west coast as well as it would be funded. I was hoping you guys could weigh in on this decision in helping me determine which one would be a better choice long-term for a job in the industry. What are your thoughts/recommendations? Thanks!
