  1. This statement of purpose draft is in application for UC Denver Master of Architecture program. A critique would be appreciated. Criticism is not taken to heart negatively, I am looking to improve. *Questions: Do you suggest refraining from personal pronouns? Should italic typeface be removed?* Statement of Purpose (750-1000 words required, word count: 752) Entering undergraduate studies at the University of San Diego as an aspiring student of architecture, I naturally drew towards the history, theories, and conventions of architecture. Undergraduate Studies focused on the
  2. Hello, This is my first post on here so be gentle on my poor soul. Long story short, I entered college to major in business and get a minor in mathematics. For context, in high-school I was student body president of a school of 4,000 and had automatic acceptance into my top 50 state school. Not that either of those is impressive, I'm just giving context that I wasn't a complete bum. The summer before I left for college I had some "out of character behavior" as my parents put it. Unfortunately, this was a foreshadowing of what the next four years entailed. By the end of freshman year I
  3. Hello all, My situation is a unique one and I haven't had any luck finding an answer using Google. So, I thought I'd ask here. So, here goes... When I was within a few months of finishing an MA degree from an online university, I had to take a 6 month medical leave of absence. While I was on my approved leave of absence, and with no notice to me whatsoever, the university terminated my degree program. Long story short, I'm stuck with the equivalent of 28.5 semester hours toward a MA degree. I know that a lot of MA degrees are between 30-36 credits, putting me 3-9 credits short of com
  4. Hi all, I'm applying for an MS in EE/ECE/EECS/CSE hopefully with a focus in computer architecture Here is my general profile: Undergrad: State school in Computer Engineering UG GPA: 3.944 Research experience: 3 non-first author publications (2 conference, 1 journal) , 1 WIP 1st author paper, 3 research presentations, all in an unrelated area of research Internship experience: 6 months at small local control systems company, 6 months at large semiconductor company in validation, 3 months in a research program prior to my freshman year GRE: V: 162 (90%)
  5. Hello all. I hope I can get a realistic feedback. Recently, I started to think that my chances of getting into Master's is very slim. I am considering applying to all the UCs except Berkeley, some other state Universities in the US such as UT Arlington, University of Utah, etc. I will applying as MS (or MA if it is the only option). One of my math profs advised me to apply as Applied Math master, but I don't think it is a good option either since I did not take numerical method course as well as advanced prob theory course. Undergraduate Institution: University of Southern
  6. I have 3.67 GPA at Rutgers in Materials Engineering and I plan on going to UConn for a masters in Mechanical Engineering since my job after graduation is more aerospace and mechanical engineering ( I am working for Pratt & Whitney) and I am more interested in the crossovers between MechE and MSE. However I have some W's on my transcript. One was a Matlab course my freshmen year I took that I hated and dropped a week after the withdrawal deadline (wasn't needed for my major). Another was during my junior year when I did a full time internship and this was an elective in industrial engineeri
  7. Hi All, I'm reaching out to the community for some advice. I've been applying to PhD programs in Ecology and or Marine Science for 3 years now without any success in obtaining a coveted position in the programs I've applied to. I have done a lot of research into how to best apply to these programs, including being proactive with contacting faculty directly, selecting strong references, applying for the NSF-GRFP, and truly catering my admissions essays to each institution. My interests genuinely lie within the subjects of Ecology and Marine Science, specifically I would like to investigate
  8. I am currently looking to apply to grad school. The only grad school I can seem to go to due to living in the middle of nowhere is an online program. It is accredited by the NASW and a very good school over all. The only problem is they have a focus on rural social work. All the classes, even the electives are rural based. My only issue is that I want to work in an urban setting as a therapist. and not knowing any other social workers I don't know what to do. 1) will going through this program ruin my chances of ever being able to move somewhere that isn't rural? 2) will I only be ab
  9. Hello, I would like some input on my chances for Stanford's mscs program (honors co-op). GRE: 167Q, 164V. 5.0W (low-mid nintieth percentile). Overall UGrad GPA: 3.8, degree in Math and Economics at UPenn. Lots of coursework in math and statistics. Took several master's level math classes instead of the undergrad versions. I don't have any publications, but was a research assistant for my Statistics professor for one semester. My background is predominantly pre-professional. I currently work as a trader at a large propriety trading firm. I didn't realize just how useful
  10. I got into UC Berkeley and Stanford Environmental Engineering MS program to study Water Resource Engineering. I'm not sure which to choose. Any opinions of pros and cons of each university for academics(course material) and campus life in general are appreciated! Where should I go?
  11. Dear Grad Cafe, I'm a career changer and interested in research in the area of diseases, specifically viruses, bacteriology and epidemiology. I was wondering if an MSN or an MPH would be appropriate. I'm interested in working with the CDC. The Epidemic Intelligence Service requires a Medical degree, so I guess MSN would be the better route fpr tht. However, I wondered if anyone could advise me. I have been given admission to JHUSON for the MSN and have been given admission by GWU for their MPH program. Advice, guidance, suggestions welcomed please.
  12. Hi! I would like to seek advice on how to improve further my Statement of Purpose (SOP) to be submitted to the University of Canberra. I am from the Philippines and I would like to pursue a Master of Strategic Communication in Australia.I have read multiple blogs on how to write an SOP, but I would like to know on what would be the best approach.Also, here are the key points the agency mentioned that must be included in my SOP:- Your personal, academic, and employment circumstance in the Philippines;- Your reason/s for choosing to study in Australia rather than in your home country;- Your reas
  13. Hi, folks I'm applicant for master's degree in Communication. I narrow down into two universities. One is SDSU the other University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee. My interest is health communication. SDSU has good faculties for health communication, but here is no funding. They said I'm on wait list for GTA, so they are not sure about the position of Teaching Assistant. San Diego whether is good, but living expense is so expensive I guess. UW-Milwaukee does not have any strong curriculum for health communication. But one or two professors are working
  14. I am applying to graduate programs (M.A. and M.S.) in clinical and general psychology. However, I noticed that Boston University's M.A. program in general psychology was only a year long (8 courses) and they did not require a thesis. Instead, the program requires a "Directed Study." As I understand it, a directed study is essentially the thesis research without the formal defense at the end. As someone who is using the M.A. as a stepping stone for a PhD, would not doing a thesis hurt my chances of acceptance? Has anyone done a directed study in place of a thesis? General advice and/or testimon
  15. Hi all, I am a 27 year old engineer from Korea(South). To briefly introduce myself, 1. I was born a Korean, was educated in Korea for my entire life. 2. I have earned a bachelor`s degree in Materials Science and Engineering from one of the top3 universities in Korea. (Though I am skeptical such local reputation may not be taken into account when applying for grad school.) -Graduated in Feb 2015. 3. My TOEFL score is 112 which is way above the minimum requirements. I can speak/read/write English fluently. 4. GPA -> Overall (3.0/4.0 : When converted to the 4
  16. I'm thinking about applying to International Relations Masters programs in the UK. I'm hoping to gain some perspective about questions and reservations I have. Specifically, how are International Relations Masters programs received or viewed by employers in the US, are the viewed as equivalent or as being less valuable? I'm not sure if I want to stay in the UK and find employment there, and if I shovel out thousands of dollars will it be a waste because Think Tanks, DOS, and other U.S. based organization will automatically dismiss the degree as lacking credibility? Thank you for your help.
  17. A little bit of background info: I'm a masters student in an MFT program, with a GPA of 3.7. I've also been working in a psychiatric hospital for the past year, as well recently working at an outpatient. I'm looking to apply to MA/PhD programs in Clinical psychology w/ a supervisor that focuses on Schizophrenia. Recently, I've began the application process (yet again) and my nerves hit the minute I pressed submit(yes, I've already turned two in). I match with the schools I'm applying to pretty well, but I'm nervous that my horrid GRE scores and subpar undergrad GPA could get in the way of
  18. Hi, everyone! I've been scrolling through posts on this site and finally decided to give in and create an account! I'm currently a junior in my undergrad but need to start preparing for the application process to graduate school. Through ample internships, I've fallen in love with higher education administration. I have two primary questions that I cannot seem to find answers to elsewhere: 1. What is the likelihood that one may be accepted into an Ed.D. program straight from undergrad? All of the research I've done thus far indicate they require a master's degree. 2. I've b
  19. Everyone who got admit from ASU for Fall 2016, PLEASE add yourself to the group https://www.facebook.com/groups/ASU.FALL.2016.ADMITSThank you :-)
  20. Long time lurker, first time poster. The reason I am posting is because I keep trying to find answers but I have so many problems and hope perhaps someone else had a similar situation or knows of something I have not tried. I have a BFA with a concentration in Illustration and a minor in Graphic Design. When I was in undergrad every time I went to my adviser (who also happened to be the dean of the art department) about something I did not feel I was learning their stock answer was almost always "go to grad school." Me: "I need help with a website to showcase my portfolio and j
  21. I am interested in going to Germany, Norway, Sweden, France of Finland to study because they have free and top notch education. I would like to get my Master's Degree in Speech Language Pathology and already hold a Bachelor of Science in Psychology. I know there are thousands of programs taught in English in those countries. However, I am having trouble finding a Master's program in Speech Language taught in English. Anyone know of any?
  22. I've been working on this Personal Statement for months now and I think it's ready to go public. I know it's far from finished, so I would appreciate your critique. The University of Edinburgh is my only option for Graduate Studies at the moment, so I need an essay that will get me in! I need to present a Personal Statement and a document about "Relevant Knowledge" on the field. Each one has to have 3,500 characters or less. Please correct any grammar and punctuation errors, as I am not an English native-speaker. Thank you very much!! _____________________________________________
