  1. I am interested in applying for a masters program with en emphasis on research in natural language processing/machine learning in US, but so far the only suitable program I've seen is MSLT in CMU. Does anyone have good recommendations? thanks!
  2. I had an underwhelming GPA in a difficult major from a top 10 but underrated public research university. I'm also in my late 30s - I've been thinking of grad/professional school for a long time, but I know it will be very challenging, and may not be worth it.For a while now, I'm been thinking of applying to the M.A. in Asian Studies at UC Berkeley and the M.A. in Asia Pacific Studies at University of San Francisco. I'd much prefer Asian American Studies, but very few schools offer an M.A. in that - the closest one seems to be UCLA, and I'd like to stay local and commute to school. There's an M.A. in Asian American Studies at SF State, but I know that SFSU doesn't have anywhere near the name recognition of UCB. My goals for those programs is to write, get published, be a "thought leader" (sorry if it sounds arrogant; it's not meant to be) in Asian or Asian American Studies, maybe lecture, and possibly teach in some capacity. My main goal would be to be a published author, whether through books, articles, journal papers, online digital content, etc. I just think of these master's programs as giving me a jumping point into what I want to do. I'd also love to go through the grad school experience - it would probably be very personally enriching. Also, like many people, I've always thought I would go to grad school, and it would be great to go to grad school at a top university. Any thoughts on the M.A. in Asian Studies at Berkeley, the M.A. in Asia Pacific Studies at USF, or the M.A. in Asian American Studies at SFSU? Has anyone gone through those programs, or know people who have completed them? How hard is it to get into those 3 programs? What is it like taking those programs, what do you learn or get out of it, what are the courses/students/professors like, and what do students do after they get their M.A.? Any other schools/masters programs you can recommend to me that are in the Bay Area, close to San Francisco? I'm also open to online masters programs, but there are hardly any offered in these fields, and they're from no-name and questionable schools.
  3. Undergraduate Institution: University of Waterloo Major//Minor: Statistics and Actuarial Science Double Major Cumulative GPA: 81% (A-?) Major GPA: Statistics 84% (A-?) and Actuarial Science 86% (A?) Student Type: International South Asian Male GRE General Test: Not Required Programming Experience: R (can run caret but no Github), SQL, Python (only for basic codes/packages) Research Experience: None Work Experience: 6 actuarial co-op work terms (4 months each). 2 years of full-time actuarial work experience. Professional Designation: ASA (Associate of Society of Actuaries from passing 5 actuarial exams)... looks like it's not gonna help but hey why not. Research Interests: Two different topics in my mind: 1. Using statistical classification algorithms to underwrite insurance customers. 2. Using statistical classification algorithms to detect benign skin pigments from the cancerous one. Publications: None Teaching Experience: None Letters of Recommendation: I'm asking my professors that I received high grades (A+ or A). However, I did not have a lot of conversations with them due to having a mindset of going to the industry right after graduation. Schools: My top choices would be: 1. University of Toronto (super hard to get into as international student, I heard it's a war zone of competition especially for machine learning field). 2. University of Waterloo 3. University of British Columbia, Simon Fraser University and the University of Victoria Thanks for reading!
  4. I am currently a Master's student; the program is great and I am confident that I could get a lot from it, but I am feeling burnt out and unable to engage meaningfully with the material. I am thinking about withdrawing from the program after this semester, but I am curious how that would affect my chances of getting into other schools. What I would ideally like to do is reapply for a Master's program this semester, withdraw after this fall semester is over, and then hopefully resume my studies Fall 2019. Naturally, there is the potential of not getting in, and I wouldn't want to either alienate/offend my professors or hurt my chances of getting into a PhD program in the future. I am curious about what you think about withdrawing, just in general, and also leaves of absence on a transcript. Also, how offensive is it to a professor if you withdraw from a program but also simultaneously ask for a letter of recommendation? Definitely don't want to scorch any earth here, but also don't really want to finish the program.
  5. Hello everyone, New to the gradcafe and first time posting here. I am hoping to get some advice on what colleges (Top 10, 20, 30, 40+ rankings) I can aim for based on my application (GPA, GRE, LOR's all described below). I am hoping to apply for a Master in Computer Science this year and start in Fall 2019. I am an international student who attended UC San Diego from 2012 - 2016. I graduated with a degree in Chemical Engineering with a Cumulative GPA of 3.065 (just met the cut off!) but major GPA is 3.65. The reason my major GPA is so much higher than my cumulative is because of a couple of reasons: When I first moved from Mumbai to San Diego, I found it difficult to adjust to the change in culture and the education system out here. Back home in Mumbai, India the approach to studying is more theoretical where as at University is was more application based. I did not enjoy my GE's much and did not pay much attention to those grades and thus got C's in quite a few of them (even got an F in one course which I retook and replaced with a B). However, half way through my sophomore year, I had a change in mentality. Was feeling more acclimated to the culture and decided that no matter what course I took going forward, I am going to aim for better grades. Long story short, my GPA really started boosting up beginning of my junior year. I got provost honors (GPA 3.5+) for my last five quarters at UC San Diego. Due to the last two years of classes being major focused, which I really enjoyed and did well in, my major GPA during graduation was a 3.65. I want to switch field from Chemical Engineering to Computer science due to the research I did in my senior year. During my undergrad (and a little bit after graduation while I was looking for jobs), I was doing research with one of my Chemical Engineering prof's in the NanoEngineering dept at UC San Diego (for those of you who don't know, the Nano and Chemical Engineering dept at UCSD is one dept and thus prof's teach courses in both programs and are usually doing research that applies topics from both fields). During this 9 month project, I was working on writing C++ simulation code to model the diffusion of nano-particles within polymers. Additionally, I also used a lot of python and matlab for data analysis work. I had no prior experience in programming before and taught myself C++ and python to conduct this research with some assistance from my prof's Phd student. This project concluded after 9 months since I found a Job and my professor got a better job at Duke University and moved to North Carolina. Once that project ended, I wanted to learn more about computer science and explore programming more. Since then, I have taken classes in Java, C, Assembly, Data Structures, Discrete Math (UCSD + community college depending on availability of courses) I have completed all lower division courses a CS Undergrad is expected to take and am starting to take some upper div courses at UCSD this fall. I have received A's in all but one of those Computer Science courses (which was a B+). Now, I do understand that since I am switching fields, some universities may have me take some more undergrad courses in my first semester/summer session which I am fine with. In fact, that is why I want to go for a Masters program so I can get a formalized education that covers all the fundamental topics in the field. I am also looking to work on some sort of research project in my masters so am looking for a 2 year program. Here is a list of my credentials so far Graduated UCSD, BS Chemical Engineering: Cumulative GPA 3.065, Major GPA 3.65 GRE Scores: Quant 166, Verbal 153 AWA 4.0 LORs: All the people mentioned below confirmed that they will write me really strong letters of recommendation Prof I did research with in my senior year for 9 months while talking Computer science courses at community college, I got to know one of my professors really well and he is now the dept chair of Computer Science at the community college. I recently spoke with him and he suggested I should apply to top 10 schools like UCBerkley, UCLA, UCSD etc and will write me a LOR to help with that My supv at work who I have been working with since Feb 2017. Since joining my current company, I have successfully completed a lot of projects independently and helped him foster strong working relationships with other dept's which prior to that were falling apart leading to no progress at work. My boss has also confirmed that he will write a really strong letter of Rec I have received A's in all but one computer science course I took so far (I have been taking these courses while working my current job full time 40+hrs/wk SO: with that in mind, what colleges would you recommend someone like me to apply for? I really like the program at Harvard Eng because it is a two year MS that allows you to work on a project for the second year under an advisor in the dept. I'm not sure how different admission's committees will view my application since I am applying from a different field from my Bachelors and that my cumulative GPA is on the lower end for most top 15 schools in the nation. Any advice is highly appreciated! I tried my best to provide all the information I thought would be necessary to evaluate my current situation but let me know in the comments if there's any more questions you have! Thanks!
  6. Hi Everyone! I have a few questions about McMaster's MSc e-Health program. I read a few things about the program itself and it seems that it's still a little disorganized. However, I was curious as to what the program is actually like and how are the grads of this program are doing now? Also, how are the interviews? How competitive is the program? Also, I know that it says you need a B+ in your final year of undergrad. In my final year, I took a few of my general education courses, would they still include that in calculating the GPA? or would it be the GPA of fourth year courses. I know that for the MPH program at McMaster, they specifically want a B+ in your third and fourth year courses. Also, what are the chances I'll get an interview/chance in this program if my grades from first two years are not as great as my last two years? I'm still debating between MPH and MSc in e-health. I currently have a BSc in Global Health specializing in Health Promotion and Disease Prevention. MPH is a little similar to my undergraduate degree but I'm interested in digital health. (Also, looking into MDes in Digital Health at OCAD). I'm all over the place right now, as you can tell. 😨 Any feedback would be greatly appreciated! Thank you!

    deciding GSEs to apply to

    Hi! I'm a junior at a competitive (top 10) US university studying chemistry and computer science. I'm starting to look at options in education to become a middle or high school science teacher, applying to masters programs next fall for a start term of Fall / summer 2020. I have no idea where to even start figuring out my chances at some programs (I've fallen in love with Stanford STEP program) and have no idea what makes an applicant competitive. This is where I'm at statistically: GPA 3.70 (higher in my chemistry classes, which is what I'd look for certification in) 3+ semesters of chemistry research, with results presented at international conference, looking for a publication soon Working on an independent study evaluating training of undergrads in tutoring programs and designing stronger training (looking to present results at poster sessions on campus) 3 summers of a teaching fellowship (science) at Breakthrough Collaborative. Likely to receive a very positive letter of recommendation from there. Teaching Assistant for chemistry and computer science class I'm a varsity athlete on a nationally ranked team too Haven't taken the GRE yet, but I am hopeful I can test well. I am most concerned right now with writing a meaningful and strong statement of purpose / application essays, as my writing experience is limited haha... I'm looking for a strong program with a strong alumni network to get me into science education, maybe setting my sights on a PhD eventually but definitely want to teach first. Looking for a program with strong field experience components and a solid community among the cohort / class. I have no idea where to start looking, or what the acceptance rates are like, or how many programs I should be looking at applying to next fall?

    2019 MPH CANADA

    Hello, As Public Health applications will be opening soon (depending on when you're applying to of course) and being the thread for last year was already released months before this, I jumped the gun and thought a thread for us to discuss, share our thoughts, feelings, fears, and the trials and tribulations of Public Health applications would be helpful. I also find it helpful to know who's applying where I'm excited to start this journey and I'm hoping we all see acceptance letters/emails in under a year! Schools/programs I plan to apply to: UBC MPH UBC MSc in PPH (already have my eye on a supervisor though) SFU MPH U of Manitoba MScPH
  10. Hello Everyone, I'm starting this topic for FALL 2019 applications for Master's and PhDs for CANADIAN Universities ONLY. Lets share news, ask questions, give tips etc... for both international and domestic students. I'm a domestic student. Canadian citizen but non-native speaker, have a BA from UBC and a MA from McGill & going to be applying to PhD in Social Justice Education at OISE in Toronto and PhD in Educational Studies at McGill.
  11. I am seeking advice for the Master's programs at University of Chicago CIR (Committee on International Relations) and at Columbia University (Political Science). I originally applied to the PhD programs in PoliSci but was transferred to these 1-year MA programs. I received 2 PhD offers from rank 40/50 schools and decided to decline in order to increase my chances of better placement in the next cycle for PhD. My field of interest is International Relations with geographic emphasis on East Asia (esp. China, Korean peninsula) - security studies. So far I have a break-down of the pros/cons of each program: Chicago CIR PROS Received $42k funding for tuition POI: John Mearsheimer, Bruce Cumings, Dali Yang Program admissions committee is highly responsive.. I appealed for additional fellowship and was granted MA Thesis that can be used for writing sample in next PhD app Lower cost of living, esp. with fellowship CONS Not too many faculty in IR - East Asia focused faculty mainly in history or CP Not really a con, but I am told that UChicago (while very good rep in field) is not quite as high as Columbia Columbia PS PROS Ivy League institution, high rep in field (as I am told by grad students/profs/etc) POI: Robert Jervis, Jack Snyder NYC is preferred city for me personally Program is specifically Political Science CONS NO fellowship.. tuition combined with cost of living/other student fees will be approx. $73k to my understanding, NO required MA thesis Higher cost of living than Chicago Granted, I did not visit Columbia as they are rolling admissions and do not have a specific Admit Day or similar event. I did attend CIR's Campus Day and was thoroughly impressed by the helpful preceptors, grad students, etc. To be completely honest I am highly tempted by the name of Columbia but my ultimate goal is placement into a PhD program ranked top 20-25. Also, while my parents are helping me with grad school tuition, 73K is no joke compared to the fellowship I received from Chicago. If anyone has any advice for me, or if anyone has graduated from either of the programs please let me know, would greatly appreciate it. Thank you!!
  12. Hi everyone, I'm interested in the online Master of Science degree in Applied Economics at the University of North Dakota. I currently live in North Dakota, and am curious if anyone has been in this program or knows anything more about it that can't be gleaned from the program website. Thanks.
  13. Want to further my studies in computation neuroscience or neuro engineering with a focus on Data analysis/Brain Computer Interface. My academics so far can be summarised on data processing, statistics and software development. I m confused regarding which colleges in US provide this course with emphasis on computer science and not on biology. Till now I have charted out some colleges in Germany and University of Waterloo in Canada. Though I m not able to find connection between the school of computer science with masters in computational neuroscience. Can someone suggest some colleges on this aspect. My GRE score is : Q : 162 , V : 161 .
  14. Hey Grad Cafe, Hope you all are doing well; I could use your all's advice and knowledge! I recently graduated undergrad with a major in communication and a minor in psychology. However, since being out of school, I've been reflecting on how I want to continue my education specifically in psychology, with my main interests particularly in counseling and clinical psychology. I want to start developing my skills and experiences to best prepare and apply in the Fall of 2019 for Master's programs. I have a couple questions about these: How should I best approach the fact that I want to continue education in psychology despite not majoring in it? Are there people among gradcafe psychology who decided to commit to higher ed in psychology after not majoring in it? How did that go? Would it be worthwhile to spend significant time prepping for the GRE Psychology Subject test as a potential route to alleviate the concern of me not having a major in Psych? Or, would that time be better suited in taking extra courses in psych at a nearby university, or should I do both? IDK! lol Furthermore, I have received advice that it may a better route for me to apply for master's programs instead of PhD's since they would better develop my research interests and alleviate the difficulty that may be faced (were I to even get in) of being in a PhD program that I didn't major in in undergrad. Should I even consider PhD applications? Some of the key goals of this year are getting involved in research projects at a nearby university, getting a job specifically getting clinical experience in providing mental health services (applied to several and am hopeful that I will get a job as a psychiatric aide or a counselor aide), taking the GRE at the end of 2019's Summer, potentially taking extra courses as a part time student to further round off my psych background. Additionally, if there is any other advice that you all want to contribute, I'd very much welcome it! What do you all think? Thanks for reading! I am excited to see what others have to say.

    Changing Thesis Supervisors

    Hi Everyone, I've recently decided to change supervisors due to the lack of understanding between us and personality differences. I think I would be better off with a few others in the department. Unfortunately, I think that this may cause some problems. My supervisor is the associate director of the program... My first choice for my new supervisor is actually on my thesis committee. I'm just wondering how to draft an email to ask if he could be my supervisor before I actually tell them. Any suggestions on how to formulate an email? Thanks!!!
  17. I would like to provide some information regarding the reality of getting admitted to top 5 ranked Canadian graduate schools in the Computer Science Program. I work in the field and it appears to me that many applicants are not aware of some of the basic requirements to be admitted that are not overtly stated but definitely required. Unfortunately, I am unable to reveal my university or position as I wish to remain anonymous. Most of the time, you MUST have previous degree from a top school of your country, especially for students with a degree outside of Canada/USA/UK. This is extremely crucial for international students and unless you meet this requirement, it is extremely difficult to be admitted. For most countries, you will need to be in the top 5-10 universities in your country (excluding Canada/US/UK/India). For India, UK, and Canada you will generally need to be in the top 20 universities and for the US, top 50 may be considered, however, top 20 has a greater chance of being admitted. One of the first considerations of the reviewer is the school in which you graduated and how that school ranks in your country. To elaborate, having a degree from a top university is important because this is the only sure way to prove that you are performing well academically because the teaching standard and research caliber of top schools are widely recognized and can easily be compared top Canadian universities. It is impossible for each top Canadian university to understand the teaching, grading and research standard of hundreds of thousands of universities in the world, including many in a foreign language with public and private systems and most reviewers will not dig around for information regarding unknown institutions. For example, there are some universities that give a grade of 75% or above to only one in a few thousand students, whereas another university can have a graduating average of 3.7 GPA. With variations like these, unless you graduated from a top university in your country where the general grading trend and teaching quality is recognized by the Canadian school, your chances of admission are slim to none. Furthermore, the other reason a top university is important is that reviewers want to see reference letters from colleagues or faculty they know and value the opinions of. Since most top researchers in Computer Science meet in major conferences, presentations and events around the world, they are aware of each other’s work, reputation and standards when writing and reading reference letters. Most of these outstanding members of the academic community are also positioned in top schools coinciding with the reviewer’s search applications from top schools. The top Canadian graduate programs in Computer Science receive over 1000 and sometimes even over 2000 applications per year, with three reference letters per application this is an astronomical number of letters to read. Taking this number into account, while the content of reference letters matter, the respectability of the reference writer is arguably even more important. For example, a reviewer reading 100 applications a day would have to read 300 reference letters, 100 of them may indicate that the student is in the top 10% of their program. In the end, being top 10% may not mean anything because there are too many top 10%s and it does not indicate the quality of the student or education. Moreover, there have been examples where the same reference writer indicated that three different students from the same year and class were the number one student in their class. In cases like these, reviewers go back to looking at the top universities, since the caliber of education is known, and they may know the reference writers, therefore, ensuring the letter is reliable. If you believe that there are many exceptions to the rule, consider that the admission data from the previous year from one of the top Canadians schools: only TWO offers out of more than 100 offers made were outside of the guidelines above. Of course, an excellent statement, GPA, reference letters, GRE, and English proficiency are also required even from a top university. Moreover, other factors such as publications, conference experience, research projects and work experience, other achievements are also considered, however, if you do not meet the top university requirement, you will likely need astounding achievements in the other factors to even be considered for admission. The information provided refers to research Master’s and PhD programs in top Canadian universities and does not necessarily reflect industry targeted master’s programs in Computer Science. I am happy to answer any questions or clarify any points, feel free to contact me or respond to this post.

    U IOWA

    Any one got the decision from University of Iowa spring for MS in industrial engineering for spring 2019? When will be the decision rolled out?
  19. Starting Fall '19, applications to Texas A&M University's graduate courses will have to sent through a third party portal named EngineeringCAS. The part which confuses me is that EngineeringCAS has its own codes for GRE and TOEFL scores. So do we need to report the scores again even if we have already sent them to TAMU? Also, there's this part about WES evaluation. Is it compulsorily required to apply to all schools or only to certain majors like Material Science and Engineering? Do we need to do the WES evaluation even if we have official transcripts from our undergraduate colleges? I would appreciate any and all comments. Feel free to comment if you have applied to TAMU for next fall. Cheers!

Instead of an M.Eng.in Computers etc. i am interested in Technology, Innovation, Entrepreneurship kind of a program. I have seen McMaster, Ryerson, UoT, Carleton and a few others with such a program. Please guide what would be a better choice looking at employability later on and other factors. Appreciate the help.
  21. Hi everyone! I am currently finishing off my undergrad with a pending application for University of Ottawa's MA(ED) counselling psychology program for Fall 2018 admission. With the results coming out slowly, I was wondering if anyone could answer some questions I have about the program and the admission procedure. 1. Do they conduct interviews before sending out offers to potential candidates? In the results search section, it seems like people never do pre-admission interviews. 2. Has anyone received offer of admission from this program? 2. What exactly happened to their PhD program? On the website it just says admission to the PhD program will be suspended until further notice. 3. How would it look for other schools if I finish this program and apply for their clinical/counselling programs (masters or doctorate)? 4. Any other general tips?
  22. Hello everyone, I am applicant from India wanting to apply for Masters program in Data Science/Data Analytics/Computational Chemical Engineering.

Profile: - Bachelor of Technology (B.Tech.) from Indian Institute of Technology Kanpur (IIT Kanpur) with GPA of 9.3/10 - Major in Chemical Engineering with Minor in Computer Science and Engineering - 2 years and 3 months work experience as a Data Scientist and Analyst at a BigData Analytics startup - GRE Score : 320 (153 Verbal, 167 Quant, 5.0 in AWA ) out of 340 - TOEFL iBT Score : 116 out of 120
  23. Hi all, I'm a prospective applicant for a masters degree in CS in South Korea. As I mentioned in the title, I have done some other kinds of activities during undergraduate school rather than research experience like participating in a South Korean government scholarship program. I have been interested in Computer Graphics, so want to deeply study more and further would like to work in related industries. But it's just all to take a couple of classes. My question is, how can I cover my paucity of research experience to apply the thesis option and find an advisor? I'd applied at several schools in last years, but I didn't hear any good news. If there is someone who has a similar background with me please reply me!

  25. Hi all! So I have a bit of a dilemma - I'm a non traditional student (majored in Business during undergrad), and am intent on pursuing a PhD in Psychology. I'm not entirely sure what area specifically I want to go down yet, as I'm interested in both Clinical and Neuro Psych at the moment. In order to apply to either, though, I obviously need to take some pre-requisites, get involved in research work and try to get in some publications/posters. I've been accepted to the Masters program in Clinical Psychology at Teachers College (Columbia) as well as to the Post Bacc program in Psychology at Columbia. I'm trying to figure out which is a better option for me, as both seem to pose good advantages. If anyone has any thoughts on this or any advice they could share, I would really appreciate it! Thanks for reading through this
