  1. Creating a thread to discuss the range of masters programs for psych. Waiting to hear from: Columbia, NYU, American University, Wake Forest, Fordham. Anyone else just.... waiting...? I have been watching the PhD forums, and am thrilled to see everyone receiving interviews/admits to their programs, but I feel as though the masters programs are much, much slower. Post below any updates you have to your programs! Not sure how many prospective MA students there are out there
  2. So I just received a generic rejection mail from Simon Fraser University Canada. Does this mean that there is a high chance of me being rejected from the universities ranked above it? Schools am planning to apply to (Fall Term 2021): University of British Columbia McGill University Simon Fraser University (Rejected) University of Manitoba University of Guelph McMaster University University of Waterloo Programs: M.Sc. in Statistics PROFILE! Type of Student: International South Asian Female Undergraduate Institution: Top 5 Sri
  3. Good morning! I want to start a discussion about the Penn GSE Fall 2020 application. Anyone applying for M.S.Ed.? Hi, I am glad you joined the conversation! 👋😃
  4. Hi! Does anyone mind sharing his/her template used to contact professors whether or not they accept graduate students and that you are willing to work with them. I've mailed over 15-20 professors and none of them have got back to me. It's been very stressful. I don't know whether to send them a reminder again or let it be. Please any advice on this is much appreciated! Thanks.
  5. Hi all, I'm revising my SoP for grad programs in Human-Computer Interaction and would be extremely grateful to get any feedback/criticism before submitting. Is there anyone in this field who can spare a few minutes going through my SoP and maybe suggesting a few things. More than happy to swap/review other statements- even if in different areas. Thanks in advance!
  6. I have been accepted into the Duke MS Economics and Computation program. I wanted to know the reviews of this particular program. What is the cost of the attendance? Also I wanted to know about the funding, financial aid and availability of student jobs.
  7. Hi everyone, I hope you are all doing well during this stressful time of year. I was just wondering if there exists any type of thinking in terms of what the best masters programs in statistics are? I feel like it is even more difficult to rank Masters programs than PhD ones simply because of the variability in whether a Masters program is viewed as a kind of cash cow, a stepping stone to a higher degree, or a primarily professional degree. Personally, I would love to get some of your insights as to what the tiers of Masters programs are for someone who wants to get a PhD in Statistics, b
  8. Hello everyone, I have a BSc in biochemistry and am looking for a MSc program in europe. I got a job in neuroscience research for a public institution right after graduation and it was then when I decided I wanted to go to industry rather than academia. I have several interests which are perhaps not 100% related to my bachelor's. Some of these are: Engineering (programming, AI, ML, nanotech, robotics) Design (creating things for practical use, creative process) Pharma (Drug pathways/delivery) Finance (project management) Biochem (neuro, lab work, cancer, ageing) I know it is imp
  9. 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 (alre
  10. Hey guys, I am an international student applying for Master's in Mechanical Engineering (Control System). I have received admits from Rochester Inst. of Technology(RIT) and Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI). I am confused as to which university should I go forward with. I intend to do a non-thesis program with major focus on getting a job once I complete my masters. While RIT has a strong co-op program, WPI has location advantage being close to Boston (robotics hub). Any suggestions are welcome. Thank you!
  11. Hi everyone, I am looking for a Masters degree (or even a PhD) that is available through online distance learning. The field I am looking for is History... or a closely related field. There are some programs like the one at the University of Edinburgh but I am looking for something that is cheaper than that. Doesn't matter which country. If anyone knows, please help. Thanks in advance...
  12. For F21 Masters, Khoury NEU is asking a deposit of 750 dollars to admits. The website said 100 dollars, admit letter asks for 750. Isn't 750 a bit too much? I don't have decisions from other universities yet. What should I do? Anybody thinking of paying them this amount?
  13. Hey y'all! I'll try to get straight to the point. I have a Master's in School Counseling but I want to pursue a degree in College and Student Affairs. As I look through programs, I'm realizing more and more that I may end up with two master degrees....so my question is: Should I apply to PhD or EDD programs straight out or should I try for a Master's program and work my way up? I currently work at a high school so I have some experience with colleges and I do leisure research. Obviously there is a lot more to Student Affairs than that, but is that base knowledge enough to at lea
  14. Hi there! Anyone applying to masters programs only? I'm applying to terminal masters programs only and most deadlines are Jan 15, Feb 1, March 1, etc. The I/O Psych subreddit has been extremely helpful (if you haven't checked it out). Has anyone applied to or, inversely, decided NOT to apply to any of the following schools? Cal State SF Claremont Graduate School UT Arlington Texas A&M Cal State San Bernardino Appalachian State University of New Haven Florida International University University of Georgia Elmhurst Universi
  15. I am right now at that point in my career where I need to choose whether I need to take a thesis or project to end my Master's degree. I want to enter into the Industry side of Bioinformatics and I want to ask the recruiters what mainly they look in the candidates when they hire a bioinformatics student the technical knowledge or the research
  16. I'm considering applying to a MA program and from there to a PhD. Will probably focus on applied ethics in the areas of bioethics or AI. The writing sample is one of the most important parts of an application. I wanted to get some pointers on where I could find examples of successful writing samples for grad programs, so I can get a better sense of what my sample will need to be. I've looked at some journals for undergrad publications, which may go on to get repurposed as writing samples, but haven't found many writing samples specifically. Alternatively, you could just send me yours
  17. Hey guys! I am a Mechanical Engineering (major) and Math (minor) student who goes to UCF for undergrad. I am, however, out of state and from Georgia. My #1 choice of getting my masters is at Georgia Tech but I have UCF as a backup since I am in their BS-MS program. I also applied to UF to have the choice of three graduate schools. Thus, I have taken two graduate courses (applied mathematical methods for engineers and turbines for sustainable power). I also intern at one of the world's top gas turbine producers and have been here for 1 yr and 3 months. I'm also a Resident Assistant and have be
  18. Hey all! I didn't see many forums for the counseling and other related master's and I've been obsessively starting to check my email for interview invites so put yours below! School Name: Program: (MHC, MSW, MFT, etc.) Date invite received: Interview date: if you want
  19. Has anybody got an admit to the MS in Computer Science program at Columbia University for the Fall session despite submitting the application after the 2nd priority deadline(during the rolling period)? If yes, can you please mention some details about your profile? Also when did you apply and when did you receive the admit? I am planning to apply after 2nd priority deadline (somewhere around 1st week of March) but am really worried that my application might not be reviewed at all. Can someone please help?
  20. (Sorry for another chances thread, if anything I'm just curious what people think...) Hey everyone, I'm applying for a masters in CS and would love to know what people think are my chances at some of these places/come from any similar backgrounds. Residency: Cal Purpose/Reason for applying/Writing: I've been working as an ML engineer for a few years after graduation, but I really want to go back to get a masters in AI. I am aiming to focus on adversarial AI/robustness/correctness and secondarily programming by example/NLP. For professional (i really think formal learning in secur
  21. Hi everyone! I really want to understand how different international affairs and public policy, as graduate courses, are. I am planning to pursue master's in either of the courses but haven't really been able to understand how different the career paths are for each. From what I've learned so far, it seems public policy focuses much more on quantitative skills like statistics, data and economics than IA. Moreover, some people have remarked that IA is too general or vague, especially in terms of profession. It would be really helpful if any of you could share your own experience.
  22. Hi! I need some advice please. So I have an offer from a Canadian University - Master's program and the course will be commencing in Jan 2021. And now that Canadian unversities have come up with a quarantine plan for internationa students it is possible to travel to Canada. I also have a PhD offer from an Australian University - not an offer exactly but my prof has agreed to accept me as a PhD candidate and I've also been working on related work. But the only issue is that with the current situation my Australian prof has told me that they are not quite sure when international students will be
  23. I'm a recent graduate in Data Science, emphasis in Applied Math from UC Berkeley, looking to apply for master's programs in Applied Math/Computational Math. GPA-3.02 GRE General- 157 Verbal, 166 Quantitative, 4.0 Writing GRE Subject Math-Cancelled due to COVID LORs- All three letters should be fairly strong: 1) Well-known professor I researched with in computational geometry, was heavily involved in several projects. 2) Lecturer in a sound computing course I took. I was quite interested in the course and showed up a lot to office hours. He seemed enthusiastic abo
  24. This is a cautionary note to the shiny-eyed prospective graduate student that dreams of actually learning something in this pile of steaming hot shit. If you have any self-respect and dignity, I entreat you, do not waste precious years of your productive life in this hell hole. Stay in your home country instead and learn from online courses, trust me, you'll learn more. You'll be lucky if you escape this farce of a department unscathed. The tenured professors sit on their fat asses and shit on the graduate students because that's how they can validate their miniscule ego. Some little shits hav
