  1. I am a Canadian citizen who has recently graduated with B- (3.2 GPA) in Health Psychology MSc with honours. I have 3.7 GPA for Psychology BSc. Hons degree. However, they are both British psychology association accredited courses which I completed in England because I initially wanted to complete my PsyD degree in England due to the program being 3 years. However, it is very expensive without fully paid scholarships (which I had for my undergrad and postgrad) and I also had a change of heart and I don't want to be far away from my parents anymore so I have decided to move back to Toronto. For York Uni, I have to apply for MA for clinical (can't apply to PhD I checked with the clinical director) and do my thesis all over again (not really opposed to the idea as it will give me more experience) but I wasn't aware that Canadian universities require GRE scores for MA applications and right now I am in England so its difficult nearly not possible for me to do GRE Exams. I am not sure what to do. I am thinking of applying to MA programs regardless and risk it for a conditional offer and do GRE if I get accepted (prepare for it meanwhile as I need that time). I do have 4 years worth of research experience but I don't have publications and I've been working as a healthcare worker for autistic young adults and adults in England but I am not sure if they will consider that for MA. Plus, I have an online appointment with one of the professors working in the autism field at york u and I really want to do research in ASD as well as clinical work. For Ottawa Uni, I can apply for PhD for clinical and I will get accepted for MA based on my MSc and BSc but I have to pass English or French language proficiency test to meet the second language requirement. I am not sure if I have to do the French language test because I do have OSSD and degrees in English but English is not my first language. I was born in India and gained my Citizenship in 2012. In addition to that, I have to forget the entire research aspect in Autism area because the potential clinical supervisor professors are not doing research in autism at UOttawa (not a single one- I checked the entire list). If I don't get into the MA program this year, I know I can apply next year with GRE scores but I feel like I'll waste another year and I don't know if I'll get a job relevant to the clinical program in Toronto based on the education I have from England. And I feel very demotivated and stuck in a dead-end. I've tried asking admissions office/clinical directors/ and a couple of professors but I received very cold replies.

    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!
  3. Hi there! I'm applying to Rhetoric and Comp MA programs for Fall 2019. I'm finalizing my list of potential programs to apply to, and realize I have a dearth of "safe schools" on this list (schools with admission rates above 10%). I realize this issue is inherent to pursuing graduate programs, but does anyone know of programs that do have higher acceptance rates? Including programs without funding? Thanks!
  4. I used to be a Research Intern and I'm not sure if that's worth putting on a CV for a PhD application. Thoughts? Also, are the job titles "Research Intern" and "Research Assistant" interchangeable or would that be too much of a stretch?

  6. Where are you employed? How much are you earning? Do you have any regrets? Are you in a lot of educational debt? ETA: I think these are really cool disciplines. Just saying that society in general views them as "fluff", nonlucrative, etc.
  7. Hey yall- I'm starting this thread for those applying to NPSIA for 2018. Feel free to post any questions or comments here. And as offers roll out too dont be afraid to share your acceptance or decline comments here Just curious, in regards to the MA, are people limiting their statement of intent to a certain number of words? is it research focused (with citations and all) even if you aren't planning on doing the thesis or MRP? The instructions on the website are quite vague, so i'm curious what people are doing (especially word count wise).
  8. Hi folks! Last month I was accepted to the South Asian Studies M.A. program at Columbia GSAS with $10,000 scholarship. (There's another thread on it, but it's quite old-2011). I was allowed to deefer admission until fall 2019. Did anyone else apply and/or get accepted to the program, or is a current student/grad? A couple questions: Will $40,000 be enough for cost of living for fall 2019, spring 2020, summer 2020, and fall 2020? That's how much I should have saved up. How competitive is it to get the Foreign Language and Area Studies (FLAS) fellowship? Do most people who apply to one get one? I want to study Hindi. Do most grad students live in graduate housing, or at least in Morningside Heights? I plan to get a terminal M.A. and not go the Ph.D. path and become a prof, so I was hoping to get practical experience during the semesters (volunteer work, internships, etc. 8-10 hours/week) so I could be in the best position to get a job at graduation. Is this feasible given the rigorous workload of a grad student? I also will hopefully be doing a work-study job, as unfortunately, internships in the public sector are unpaid, ugh. At GSAS I plan to take 9-12 credits a semester tops. Also, does GSAS provide stipend funding for internships the way SIPA, the law school, etc. do? What are your impressions of the department in general? What do you wish you had known before starting it? What are the typical career paths of terminal M.A.s in this department? I'll be in my early 30s when I start. Are most folks 21-22 and coming fresh out of undergrad, or are there plenty of GSAS students with past careers? How is the counseling center at Columbia?
  9. A friend of mine graduated from undergrad a few years back with her B.S. in Audio Engineering. Unfortunately, once she graduated, she realized she didn't want to work in her major field, and is considering going back to school. As an avid reader and someone who enjoys grammar and syntax, she's considering pursuing an MA in English, but unfortunately doesn't have the means to pay out of pocket for tuition. Are there any fully-funded MA English programs that accept students that don't already hold a BA in English?
  10. One of the profs writing my letter of rec recently asked me if he would simply receive a link from the school to which I apply in order to submit his letter. I'm not sure. Does anyone know how professors go about submitting the letter? Thanks in advance!

    Funding Packages

    So, I've seen threads in other groups where people share their funding packages for MA/PhD as a useful resource for people who want to apply for schools, but aren't sure what the funding may be like. Or you know, just for sheer curiosity too. Anyways, the google sheet is editable by anyone, so feel free to add your school. Cheers! https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1qoEVD2hIshffv07L00z0pDS0M25cKCB7PcjXpk-v5X0/edit?usp=sharing

    Masters In Europe 2018-2019 Cycle

    Anyone applying to any masters in Europe this upcoming cycle? I thought we could discuss it here! I’m applying to Science Po and IHEID.
  13. Hello! I am beginning the process to apply for the MA in Education with a concentration in Counseling and Student Personnel at SJSU. Just wanted to see if there was anyone else out there in the same boat?

    Submitting Transcripts

    Hey all, I have received a copy of my official transcripts from my undergraduate university. I am applying to 10 PhD programs. Could I simply scan a copy of my transcript 10 times and send the schools those or must I send each school an actual transcript in the post? Thanks in advance
  15. Is is really that much important the reputation of the university? I have been accepted to the MALS Dartmouth, Queen's MA in Political Legal Philosophy, St. Andrews MLitt in Legal and Constitutional Studies and Sherbrooke University for the Master of Laws (LLM). So far, the advices I have received are really to go with the prestigious school - Dartmouth, Queen's St. Andrews and to not keep Sherbrooke University. However, I do believe there is a value in their degree -- LLM. It is normally quite impossible to enter in that degree without a prior law degree so I have to say that despite their lower reputation, I felt it was quite attractive to have this chance to study law at the graduate level. More particularly, if I had the chance to pursue a doctorate in law, I believe this program would be my only chance to pursue legal research or teach law later on.

    Kingston's CRMEP

    Hi, all. What are current thoughts on Kingston's CRMEP? I know that Kingston has been in a bit of financial trouble lately, and I have some doubts about the school overall due to this. Furthermore, Kingston's CRMEP is not ranked highly for continental philosophy programs—as opposed to Essex, Sussex, Warwick, etc.. Despite all that, CRMEP absolutely has the best faculty (Peter Osborne, Catherine Malabou, Howard Caygill, Peter Hallward, and Étienne Balibar) for my purposes compared to any English-speaking school I've seen in the US and internationally. I am tempted to pick an MA program for its faculty over its ranking, but I don't want to hurt my chances down the line when I apply to PhD programs. Anyway, what are thoughts generally on the benefit of attending "prestigious" MA programs, and does anyone know anything about CRMEP specifically that may help me make this decision? I appreciate any help you can give, and congratulations to everyone who has gotten or is getting acceptance letters around now.
  17. Hello everyone, I am kinda freaking out right now because idk if I will get accepted into an SLP Master's Program. I know that it's a very competitive field and I don't have the best statuses. Here are my stats, Overall GPA 3.3, Major GPA 3.5, GRE: 139V 142Q 3.0AW (I know its bad Dx). I am planning to retake the GRE one more time before August and hoping to get in the 150's (I've been using Magoosh and it's been helping. The practice tests say I would probably score 145-150, but I still have a month til my test). I currently live in Nevada and there's only one Master's program here. I am currently looking at these schools: Old Dominion, Hampton University, distance programs such as Nova and NYU Steinfield, Louisiana State University, Arizona State University, etc. If you applied or was accepted can you tell me how you like it and if I have a chance of being accepted. Thank you everyone~
  18. Hi all! Apologies if this has already been asked and answered, but I am wondering if anybody knows how common it is for departments to automatically consider rejected PhD applicants for their masters programs. I came across this while perusing Boston College's English PhD program, but I can't find other institutions that share this practice (or at least publicize it). Is this often done at other universities? If so, where would one look to find out this information? Short of directly emailing program directors, I can't think of a quick way to know whether or not an institution does this. Is there a list out there of programs that automatically consider 'promising' PhD rejects for an MA in the same department? Thanks in advance for reading
  19. Hey everyone! I saw one for the doctoral level but not one for the MA level. Didn't know whether to include the other agencies (CIHR and NSERC)? Feel free to join in or start your own thread. Let's all wait it out together

    Villanova Psychology Masters

    Hi! I just got into Villanova's psychology masters program for the fall. I am from NY and will either be completing my master degree in NY at Queens College or away at Villanova. This is a big decision for me as I have never previously gone away to school. I also didn't receive any stipend/finding as I applied too late. I know Villanova has a wonderful reputation as a university but does anyone know anything about their reputation in the psych world? I feel that having Villanova on my resume might help with my future applications to PHD/PsyD programs, but how recognized is Villanova's psych program? If I were to go, I would like to almost guarantee that I can get into a great clinical doctorate program since Villanova seems to have the research opportunities I need before applying. Any advice would be great!

    Where Top-Tier PhD Students Got Their BA/MA

    As I have been investigating the biographies of PhD students in top tier history programs, I have been compiling a spreadsheet of where each student received his/her undergraduate degree(s) and Master's degree(s). There has been a bit of discussion in this forum lately about the importance of "Master's degree prestige" in applying to top tier PhD programs, so I hope this list is helpful to other users: University of Chicago 44 history grad students list their pre-PhD degrees on their Chicago webpages 40 came into the PhD program with a Bachelor's and Master's degree;

There is a wide variety of undergraduate institutions, and the selection is so diverse it almost makes me wonder if admissions committees purposefully try not to accept too many students with any one undergraduate background. Perhaps ad-coms are more likely to accept a student into a PhD program if the applicant's undergrad institution is one that is not currently represented, so as to increase diversity? I don't know. All of the undergrad institutions are reasonably legitimate though: although you will see humble institutions like Lehigh or Weber State represented, you never see, say, for-profit online programs or conservative bible colleges represented. The prestige of the Bachelor's degree only seems to matter if a student is applying to a PhD program straight out of undergrad with no Master's degree in between. PhD students at top tier programs do seem to bring Master's degrees from the generally-understood "Top 40"-ish institutions, with a few exceptions. Middle-of-the-pack rated state schools don't seem particularly well represented. In order to enter a top tier PhD program, one typically needs a lower degree either from another top tier institution or from a non-US school (really any foreign school seems to do the trick, even if it's only as "foreign" as Canada). I have also attached the raw data in a spreadsheet, in case anyone wants to dig into the data a bit deeper. Top Tier Grad Students.xlsx

    Contacting Potential Faculty

    Hey all, Some people have told me that, before applying to PhD programs, it's a good idea to contact the faculty members with which you wish to work. I was just wondering what types of things people generally say or ask while reaching out to potential faculty. Thanks in advance!
  23. Hello, I I received an offer from a school with partial scholarship and a graduate assistantship. I asked them about the type of assistantship and the stipend, but they basically did not give me an answer. Just said that it can be either an RA or TA, 10h/w or 20h/w and the information of the amount that will be paid for assistantship is not available yet and only will be in May. I had to give them an answer in a short time, and since I did not hear back from the other schools yet I said yes. But I have no idea what I will get. This is in New York and a STEM field, but not a PhD and most of the things I have read through search is related to PhDs. I know I am lucky that I even got the offer since I am only doing masters. But I do not even know if the funding will cover tuition. And they are not answering my questions about this, I tried. They just say the information is not available. Was I not supposed to get a detailed offer letter? I prepared and sent my I20 form like there is no assistantship at all as they asked. But I do not know what to do as I am also waiting for other schools which will give me answers really late since I applied late.
  24. Heya, folks. I've been lurking for a couple weeks, but I couldn't seem to find a 2018 acceptance/rejection thread specifically for Philosophy M.A. applicants, so I figured I'd start one myself. I applied to four programs: NIU, UW-Milwaukee, Virginia Tech, and Western Michigan. I was admitted to NIU early this month--2/7, I want to say?--but am still awaiting news on funding. I've not yet heard back from any of my other three programs, but, of course, the deadlines for those applications have only recently passed, so I imagine I'll be waiting some time yet... Any others admitted to NIU?
