  1. Hey guys! Wanted to get a conversation going about Fall 2021 admissions into UMSI masters program. I applied before the January 15th deadline, anyone know how long it takes for admission decisions? Also, does anyone have an idea on the acceptance rate of UMSI Masters in Information?
  2. I got accepted into both ETH Zurich Mechanical Engineering Masters and TU Delft Aerospace Engineering Masters. From a practical point of view, both are almost equivalent in cost since I can stay with family in Delft. Although Delft seems to be a bit more applied than ETH, I think I would be happy academically in either program. Since my end goal is likely to be a PhD I was leaning more towards ETH, but I am unsure since Delft seems to have gained in reputation quite a bit in aerospace. Am I missing something here? I can't really find a a real reason to go for one over the other
  3. Hello dear forum, I have been reading here quietly for a while now, since there are two questions in particular driving me around that I haven't been able to answer properly yet: 1) Should I apply for PhDs this year (for a start in fall 2022) with my current profile and thus have only studied a few months in my Master? and 2) Which of the Master's programs best fits my focus and could still best "push" my PhD applications? Goal: I would prefer to do a PhD in Comparative Politics or IR theory, keeping a focus on South Asia. Most of the exciting programs I am hav
  4. Hi! I am here to ask for help in choosing a good master program in political science. I have now received admission from Duke, UChicago, UCSD (MCEPA), and U of T. I am particularly interested in authoritarian politics and the political economy of development, with a specific focus on China. I can't decide upon Duke or UCSD. Here are the pros & cons of both schools. Duke: PROS-good placement (except for this year), small class size, good training. CONS-People studying authoritarian politics basically reach out to Professor Manion and Malesky. I am afraid that I can't stand out and get
  5. Hi guys! I'm an applicant for the CMHS year 1 program fall 2021 at UPenn GSE. My application was complete on 02/05 and I still haven't received any updates regarding my application, so I'm getting really nervous. I know this may be a long shot, but does anyone who submitted their application in early February hear back from the program?
  6. Hey! For the Severe Disabilities track, has everyone who applied gotten an interview? Heard anything else?
  7. Hi everyone, I was just wondering if any of you had receive any news regarding the decisions for the 1st round of admissions ? The deadline for the 2nd round is tomorrow and it is going to be more than 6 week? This is stressing me out...
  8. Hi every one. I have a question and it's kinda emergency. Can you please help? I got the admission for Mcmaster university for fall 2017 master program and I accepted the offer, but the problem is that the offer is a conditional one. It states that (here is the exact sentences from the offer): This offer is conditional upon the receipt of an official transcript confirming that your Bachelor's degree has been conferred with at least a B- average in the final year (in the discipline you are entering) I assume B- is equal to 2.7/4. I understand that B- is not a high GPA b
  9. Hello. I am a 27 year old peruvian currently living in Peru and I am enrolled to study a master's degree in Media and Communication Sciences in the Technische Universität Ilmenau starting in april 2021, I have already been accepted to the course but in order to get a VISA, the embassy of Germany in Peru demands me a formal guarantee letter (Verpflichtungserklärung), this is a German citizen that signs a letter that guarantees that i will have money while I am in Germany. I have enough money for my living, I just need someone to sign that letter, that person will not spend any money, otherwise
  10. Hi everyone! I'm thinking about applying for the DAAD scholarship this year (deadline is very soon) and, therefore, I need to choose 3 master programmes before I apply. I'm now at the nuclear department in my Uni and I want to specialize in theoretical physics in my master course. The reason is, since my scientific work is about extending Standard Model to describe massive neutrinos (rougly gauge models), I feel that I don't have necessary deep knowledge in QFT and other theoretical fields. I don't want to be so shallow in my scientific work Can someone please recommend the bes
  11. Hi political scientists. I have been preparing my application for 2021 MA application at UBC. I was hoping some one may have some advice about what classes should I take and an evaluation for my profile. Here are my stats.

  12. Is there anyone who has not received the application result for the application fall 2020? Has anyone been waitedlisted?
  13. Hi all, I hope this finds you well. I am currently writing my PhD in Near Eastern Archaeology. I used a very useful database that helped me organising my data. I thought that might be of interest for some of you. I think it could be also used to record finds on excavations. I am not sure if I can post the link to it in here? Otherwise I am happy to provide a review. Stay safe and take care
  14. It’s quite a hard choice for me… Let me first describe a bit about my struggle. I wanna pursue an academic career in the discipline of international relations. My main research interests include international cooperation, IR theory, IOs, and Asia-Pacific. Both schools have very significant pros and cons in my view. ANU is a leading institution in Asia-Pacific studies and very rich in academic resources. However, I tend to complete my doctoral studies (PhD) in the US. As you guy may know, ANU is a base for the English School (emphasize the value of traditional research

  16. Has anyone heard from EPFL regarding their master's applications?
  17. Hi Everyone, I just wanted to start a forum on those waiting for admission to Fall 2018 University of Michigan School of Information Master's program! Here is a space for you to discuss your worries, get information from others applying, and ask about acceptances/denials. We're all in the same boat! UMSI '18!!
  18. Hello everyone ! I am an international student, applying to PhD program in Biological and biomedical sciences in USA. I would like to ask about " Writing samples", what are they? I have a master degree thesis, is it suitable to post? Should I post" the introduction, aim of the work, materials and methods, results and discussion" parts? Should i include references or not? Also, can anyone provide me with "samples" of relevant "writing samples" ? Thanks a lot
  19. Hello, I'm currently a fresh graduate student in economics from reputable university in Indonesia. I have 3.48 GPA, scored 7.5 on IELTS, and scored 164 in GRE quant and 161 in my verbal. I have several working experiences, as teaching assistant for Introduction on Microeconomics, internship at a local social enterprise and currently I'm a research assistant at independent think tank. I seem to have chance for not relying on financial aid (self-support). My biggest consideration is time, as I have to start my master degree by 2020. I plan to apply into several universities, but I str
  20. Just wanna start a post for Columbia Data Science 2019 fall applicants. Has anyone heard back yet? Or what is your process?
  21. Hey everyone here, I'll be applying to various universities this December onwards, I'll graduate next year in May. I plan to pursue a Masters degree in Statistics, and would realistically like to know my chances at one of the top 10 universities (ETH Zurich claiming top spot). Thanks! Here's my profile: Undergrad: IIT Guwahati (India) - Mechanical Engineering with a minor in Computer Science - CGPA 8.39/10 Profile: Indian, Male, 20y TOEFL: 116/120; GRE (expected): 170Q 162V 4W Relevant coursework: I have attached my course structure for MA101,102, 201 as well as the C
  22. Hi, I'm going to apply to Statistics master's and PhD program this year, hopefully focusing on machine learning / deep learning. I have several concerns, including 1. changing my field from Economics to Statistics 2. did not take many courses from Statistics department 3. did not major/minor in Mathematics, and for these reasons, I am applying to master's as well, so that I can have a better chance to get into PhD program afterwards. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated! Undergrad Institution: One of the top 3 in South Korea Major(s): Economics GPA: 3.
  23. Hi! I am planning on applying to Columbia's MSW Online Advanced Standing Program here in the fall, I was hoping someone who applied in past years or who might be in the program can give me some insight as to what they might be looking for, how to make me a more competitive candidate or anything to help out a stressed college student. Thank you much!
  24. Sup everyone, My name is Elia and I applied for a Master in Robotics, Systems and Control at ETH. I also applied for the ESOP scholarship. I thought it would be nice to start a new thread for this year's waiting process, in order to share our interviews (if any), advice, etc. Let's see if this works
  25. Took the GRE two weeks ago and got the scores (Q169/V161/AW4.0). I'm a non-native English speaker. I think I could probably improve my AWA to 4.5 with enough practices, yet I doubt I could reach the same QV scores again (during mock exams my average is around 323). Just curious if this score is good & safe enough for applying HCI master programs, or is it worth it to retake the test simply for AWA's sake? Other background info: Foreign Languages and Literatures Major - 3.96/4.3 or around 3.7/4.0 GPA 2 years working experiences in digital advertising agenc
