  1. Hi, I am a foreigner working full-time in New York, holding L1b visa. I would like to apply for Columbia's Master of Science in Computer Science as part-time student. But I am not sure whether they accept part-time students for foreigners, and I don't see such choices in the application system. Does anyone know about this information? Thanks

    Tilburg: MRes in Economics

    To all, I am a student attending the last years of a MSc in Economics at Autonoma Barcelona (University within top 75 QS ranking, GPA 4.0, GRE Q 164, good reference letters). I would like to specialize my study towards macroeconomics and financial economics. After applying for Tilburg, I finally got accepted in the Master in Research without funding. Up to now, it's the only option I've got for continuing my studies (I've applied just for three phd positions). Do you believe it's still worth to accept the offer? How actually good is Tilburg's Mres? Should I wait for next year for applying to other phd much more valid (after retaking the GRE)? Furthermore, I would like to ask you whether you are aware of the net for visiting students? How is Tilburg considered among other European university? Has Tilburg any link with US universities? These are more or less my doubts, because constructing an objective idea about this offer and computing the pros and cons is not an easy task. If you know any information, please share! Thank you in advance.
  3. Hi, I wonder how the profile of a strong candidate for Stanford EE MS looks like. I would like to apply but I am not sure if I met their expectations.
  4. I'm a Mechatronics undergrad thinking of applying to the RSC Masters at ETHZ next year, and had a few questions. 1) Anybody know what the admissions statistics are? I already know they're quite high, but it'd help me determine my chances. I tried getting in touch with their admissions department for statistics, but it seems that they don't give them out. 2) Should we reach out to profs with our info (GPA, GRE, research interests) to see if we're a good fit for the program? Wasn't sure if this is appropriate, but I thought it'd be a good way to gauge my chances as well. For reference, my profile is: Mechatronics Engineering Bachelors at top 5 Canadian University GPA 3.9 GRE 170Q/164V/5AW 1 year of work experience 0.5 years of research experience (not in desired field of study though)
  5. Hi All, Anyone applying for the NCSU Master of Analytics program this year (2018). How long does it take to get an update after we submit the application?
  6. 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.

  8. I major in biochemistry and graduated with a bachelor degree in Spring 2018. I got a poor GPA (3.0) and a little bit of academic research for 4 semesters, 2 for one semester long and 1 for a year. All of them didn't get to a published paper by the end. I got a research opportunity at the University of Southern California this summer and I'm really excited about this. If there is a chance, I want to be a lab tech in that research lab for next year. Also, I accepted an offer at the Tufts University for a one-year master program in infectious diseases and global health. I am trying to decide between these two options and trying to add some impressive stuff to my resume so that I can get into a Ph.D. program (hopefully) in Fall 2019. Which one should I choose?

I am specialized in game theory. I think that having a master degree in math will be better for my Ph.D. studies. I want to be in Europe during my grad life. I would really appreciate any comments/advice on my list of schools and on any other programs I should consider. Am I aiming too high with no safeties? Am I competitive enough for those schools in my list? Is being Econ major really bad sign or a negative point for those programs? Has being enrolled in a master program negative impact on my application profile? Thank you in advance.

  11. 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!!

    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!
  13. Hey Everyone! I haven't been able to find a thread for uoft ischool so I thought I would just start it here. I haven't heard back yet, I applied on January 31st for the program as well as OGS, I was wondering if anyone has found out if they have been accepted or rejected yet? I know they told us we would hear by the 3rd, but with that approaching so quickly I just thought it would be useful to have this forum. Best of luck to everyone! Thanks in advance for the responses!

    master psych decision to make

    Hey folks, I need to make a decision on a master's program, and I was wondering if I could get some input. I have offers from MAPSS UChicago, Ball State Clinical Psych, Brandeis General Psych, American University General Psych, NYU, and Pepperdine. They've offered me similar levels of funding, so it's really a comparison of the programs that I need. Any input? I'm thinking MAPSS and Brandeis are my top 2 right now.
  17. Hello, I have applied for master of Mental Health Counseling program. I've got a few tough decisions. 1. Can I withdraw from my last choice even after I've accepted? I truly feel horrible about it. 2. Do any of you know the pros and cons between Williams&Mary vs Johns Hopkins Uni vs (BGSP)Boston Graduate School of psychoanalysis? I know BGSP is more specific, and I don't have psych background. Thank you so much to anyone who answers. This is weighing so heavily on my mind.
  18. I know there aren't much master's applicants out there but has anyone applied to or heard back from the Harvard Master's of Medical Science Immunology program? Just wanna feel like I'm not going through this alone haha
  19. Hi! So I am still in search of reputed master programmes that prepare strong candidates for future Ph.D. application in the U.S. I want to specialize in clinical child psychology/ developmental neuropsychology. Thoughts? (I am quite desperate and open to new ideas, I appreciate any advice!) Many thanks!

    USC marshall school MSEI F17

    Hi, everyone. I have been waitlisted on the MSEI(master in entrepreneurship and innovation)since 19 April, and interviewed twice in March. According to the director, the decision should be out on 1 May. BUT it didn't. What freaks me out is that I‘m an international student who probably won't have enough time to process the bank, visa, and housing issues if be admitted after May, because the program begins at 13 Aug. So should I contact the director again? (I have sent several emails after interview, waitlist, and asked a friend, who withdrew the offer, referring me to the director) and any suggestion on writing this e-mail since I don't wanna act so desperate for an offer(even though this program is my last hope) Thanks!!!!!
  21. I am applying for master degree at cornell cals for graduate student assistantship. They required directly contact to professor first then, I will be eligible to apply for their program. In announcement, it said: Applicant should have a record of outstanding academic performance(eg. >3.5 GPA), strong GRE scores (75th percentiles), and other related experince. I don't have GRE scores but, I am going to give it a try since I think I have strong academic experineces. My GPA is 3.29, but I think my other related experinces is valuable. -> Should I indicate in the email that I don't have GRE scores or not? -> Also, should I attach in the email of extra letter for low cum.GPA explanation letter? Plz,,give me an advice.. Thanks all!
  22. Hi you all, So I have been admitted to the International Studies master program at Josef Korbel College at U of Denver with an annual scholarship of $10,000 and I'm really struggling with my decision as the deadline approaches!!!! Can anyone help me if I should choose Korbel?? Someone can give me some info on its course/professor/employment situations and just the general info of the program?? Is it worthy? Also, it would be the best if there's any alumnus that can talk to me about their experience at Korbel!! Plus, I'm an international student, just some background info. Please helpppp! And congratulations on everyone's offers too! Thanks!!:)
  23. Three weeks ago I was accepted through notification email referring me to X's online portal, which had an acceptance letter from the Graduate School of Admissions. I was quite excited as X is a good school with a great reputation, and the program seems like a great fit for me on paper. However, this program will only be 1 year old this Fall, so I was hoping to get more insight into the development of the program and its vision. I have emailed the generic 'info@' address and the director of the program, along with follow-ups and have yet to receive a single piece of communication from the program itself. I have gotten in touch with a professor and current student, but wanted to ask your opinions on if it is common for admitted students to expect informative communication post acceptance and pre-enrollment. Thanks in advance.

    MPH: UCSD vs. NYU

    Hello, I have been accepted into both UCSD's and NYU's Master of Public Health programs, and I have to make a decision by April 15th. These are both new programs (I believe NYU's MPH is in its fourth year and this fall will be the first year for UCSD's MPH), and I'm having difficulties deciding between the two. I'm interested in epidemiological methods, environmental health, and especially climate change impacts on health. I also plan on pursuing a PhD after this MPH, and I am quite interested in UCSD's JDP PhD. Does anyone have any suggestions or have any useful information on either of these programs that could help me out? Thanks in advance--I appreciate it!
  25. Hey everyone! So I applied for several masters in counseling, and so far I've been accepted by Mental Heath counseling Master program of 1. Indiana University in Bloomington, CACREP 2.

I am having a hard time making this decision, if anyone could give me some advice or input on the matter and their opinion on the school or program. it would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!
