  1. Hi just wondering if anyone wants to give a generalized honest opinion, am I wasting my money applying to PhD programs in Media Studies when I only have my BA? I know you need to know a lot more about me and to read my writing to actually answer that with full confidence but I'm wondering if there is sort of a general rule that almost all PhD admits already have their Masters or have spent significant time working in the field. I'm sure a masters helps one's chances but is someone getting into media studies (rtf/cultural studies type) PhD programs without it an exception or just a slight minority? My professors have made it clear that it would be better were I accepted into PhD programs for money reasons, but even the ones who most intimately know my work haven't given a clear indication of if that's possible. Reading the websites of programs I'm interested many current students seem to have acquired their Masters from other schools or in other disciplines so I feel my chances dwindling. I have good numbers and some good writing but I've never published or officially presented.
  2. Have you guys received your official letter yet? Query for international students: Have you received your I-20?
  3. I am an undergraduate from B.E. Computer science. But I do not feel the field is what I want to do. I would love to work with books, i.e editing/writing. Is doing a MA in creative writing a good choice for that? If yes what universities should I opt for? I have chosen my dream schools to be Emerson, Oxford Brookes, New York University. Am I reaching too high? TOEFL - 107 GPA - 7.3/10 (10 point scale)
  4. Hi I have a master's degree in computer science from a while ago. Been working for the past decade or so. I am interested in studying psychology out of interest and to switch careers. I believe that I can do master's degree to get some subject matter foundation before applying for PhD (I already have the basic prerequisites for master's covered such as introduction to psychology, intro stats). I'm looking for universities in New York City area that have a master's program which can be a stepping stone to get into a good University for PhD later. I am concerned that NYU is hard to get in given my background (no research or psych related experience). How about teacher's college? Does it have good faculty/research/reputation? Also, considering master's in CUNY but I am not sure how much of a stepping stone it is in terms of quality of education and research experience and reputation when it comes to admission for PhD in a good Uni later on. Any advice/direction is much appreciated!
  5. 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
  6. Hi, I have research interests pertaining to both contemporary and older art history. Columbia has two great programs, but I also see that they only have about 4 contemporary/modern faculty. Any insights into if one program is more competitive than the other or any experience with in either of the programs?
  7. Hi! I am applying to the master's for general psychology at CUNY's Hunter and City College, but I am confused about the difference between the two programs? I've seen Hunter College mentioned often in my search, but City College seemed more obscure. As someone with little insider knowledge, it's hard for me to understand if there's a big difference in reputation, types of research, quality of education, admission rate, etc. I ultimately want to do a PsyD or PhD in clinical psychology, but I didn't didn't take any psychology courses in undergrad. Any advice would be appreciated! NOTE: above message is posted by a friend using my account!!!!!
  8. I am applying for a Masters in Computer Science, specializing in Artificial Intelligence, from a non-traditional background. Afterward, I am targeting a PhD in Computational Neuroscience or interdisciplinary in AI, Neuroscience, and related fields. Big picture, I want to contribute to mental health at the intersection of Computer Science and Neuroscience (e.g., improved diagnostics methods, computational modeling of mental illnesses, new therapeutic targets). I am looking for advice on which of the below 2 paths makes the most sense in the long term. Stats at the bottom -- thanks in advance! Post bac before Masters (total of 3 years; 1 year post-bac, 2 years Masters) Tufts Straight into the Masters (2.5-3 years, assuming a semester or two for pre-reqs) UPenn (MCIT first), Harvard, NYU, UC Davis, UC Irvine, Boston University, Northeastern ----- Stats Undergrad from Top 30 school in US, majoring in Psychology and Neuroscience GPA: 3.04 (high upward trend with 3.65 GPA in latter half) Major/Sciences GPA: 3.67 332 GRE (166Q/166V/5.5AW) 3 years of management consulting consulting in healthcare/pharma 2 years of Psychology research (started in undergrad, continued post-graduation, no publication) Additional stats, if post bac: 1 year of relevant research Recommendation letters from professors in target area GPA boost, and demonstration of ability to perform in relevant coursework Pre-requisites met In addition to the above benefits from the post bac, making me more competitive for 'better' programs, I think it: allows me to maximize my time during Masters for research (not spent struggling thorough coursework, and to narrow down research interests for the next step). Any thoughts and advance appreciated. Thanks.
  9. Hello! Could you please evaluate my profile? I'm going to apply for fall 2020 MS Biostatistics.

    SOP help

    Hello! I am a student from abroad looking to apply for Art History and Curatorial Master's in the UK and in New York. All of them require a statement of purpose, which is something unusual where I come from, so I don't really know how to go about it, especially since I've been reading that it can be a make or break part of the application. I was wondering if there might be someone willing to share the SOP's that got you accepted into MA programs, just so that I can get the gist on what admission's officers are looking for. I have read a lot of mixed advice online, but I would like to get a real example of what makes a standout SOP. I guess people are concerned about distribution or copying, which I obviously won't do. I really just want to be as prepared as possible because I don't think I'll have the chance to apply to Master's another year if this year I don't get accepted. I'd be so grateful if anyone could help me out!
  11. Hi all, I'm deciding between Columbia's Masters of Science in Business Analytics and University of Michigan's Masters of Science in Data Science program. Since they are in different industries, I'm very conflicted. I got waitlisted from NYU and UW Data Science, got accepted to Cornell's MPS in Applied Statistics (Data Science), ORIE at Cornell Tech, and Georgetown Analytics. Still waiting from Brown, PENN, LSE Data Science. Economics major and Statistics minor at a top 3 liberal arts college, with some cs background. I think my end goal is working as a data scientist at a consulting/finance firm, but I'm open to other data science roles. Not interested in PhD. I was leaning towards Michigan because of technical complexity, so I'll have a wide variety of career options, but everyone's telling me to choose Columbia because of its name value, resources, and geographical advantage (i.e. recruiting and networking). I have a week to decide - any advice/input would be appreciated!!! Thank you!
  12. I have applied for Masters in Electrical and Computer Engineering for Winter 2020 intake on July 7th. My undergrad % is 74% with IELTS score as 7. But my application status still shows 'Priliminary review required' Does this mean I must leave hopes on this Carleton University?
  13. Does anyone know the process for applying to European masters programs? Unfortunately lack of funding in the US has forced me to look for other options. From the websites of some institutions I've looked at it seems like unlike the US you don't reach out to professors before applying, you just apply like we did in undergrad? Thanks.
  14. Hi, I am planning to apply to MS in CS programs for Fall 2020 and was wondering if it is reasonable to aim for the following schools: Stanford, CMU, Princeton and Cornell (I will be applying to a wide range of schools but just wondering which top programs are within reach). Undergraduate Details: Majors: Mathematics, Computer Science (NYU) GPA: 3.75 (overall), 3.83 (Computer Science) Took a few graduate classes GRE: Q(169), V(158), W(4.5) Research: 2 Workshop papers at ICML and KDD Teaching: 1 year as a Math/CS tutor 1 Semester TA for an upper level CS elective Industry Experience (Software Engineering): 3 Internships during undergraduate summers 2 Years of work experience (by Fall 2020) as a SWE Misc. Side projects/blogs/publications in student journals Any thoughts/comments will be appreciated!
  15. Hi, I have started drafting my SOP, i'm facing a blocker on how to bridge my two years of work experience in an different field in my SOP. Should i not mention it or how can i cover the same in my SOP. I did my bachelors in Electrical engineering and sad part is that i'm working in TCS for the past two years now. Any help is appreciated.
  16. I'm planning on submitting applications for master's programs in statistics/bio-statistics this fall, and I'm not quite sure how to approach the statement of purpose. I have a relatively good idea of how it works for PhD programs (i.e. research experience, professors or labs to work with, etc.), but if my goal is not a PhD, how do I write this? Most terminal master's are not too research-heavy so I'm just not sure how I can approach this when statements of purpose tend to be mostly about research experience and research goals. Any help will be appreciated. Thanks!
  17. Hi, it's my first time here, so not exactly sure if I'm doing this right! Are there any international students applying for a Masters program for performing arts administration or theater production and management?
  18. I am Bhuvesh Gupta currently a final year B.Tech student. I want to do masters in Cyber Security in USA. Can you please suggest me some good universities for the same in USA ?
  19. Hello, I have got admits in the following universities and programs: TU Kaiserslautern - M.Sc. Computer Science RWTH Aachen - M.Sc. Data Science Paderborn University - M.Sc. Computer Science OVGU Madgeburg - M.Sc. Data & Knowledge Engineering Universitat Bamberg - M.Sc. International Software Systems Science Please suggest the best/suitable program with respect to research prospects, job opportunities, long-term/short-term benefits?
  20. Has anyone else applied to/heard back from Pratt's new IXD program?
  21. I thought this was the best place to ask these questions, so... Which Oxford masters programme is easier to get in; Economics, Sociology or Philosophy? I have a client who wants to know. Also, does it matter which undergrad uni he went to? He currently studies at a top uni in Scotland (St Andrews or Edinburgh - I am not at liberty to say which, sorry). Currently studies Economics and Philosophy, but could switch to Sociology as he like it as well. Also by studying which is it easier to gain a job at a university? Thank you all for your answers!
  22. Choosing between the fully funded 5-year PhD program in political science at Boston University and the 1-year MA program at Columbia University. Definitely want to do a PhD and pursue a career in academia, so the PhD program is tempting, but the ranking of BU’s program (#56) might make finding a decent job as a prof more challenging than kickstarting a PhD elsewhere with an MA in Columbia (ranked #7).
  23. 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
  24. I'm looking to apply to top 10 MSc ChemE programs and at the least top 20. My GPA is 3.90/4.00 in Chemical Engineering at RPI. I have one industry research paper and one pending research paper at school. I have one summer of research completed and one spring of industry experience in RnD at Corning Incorporated. I also plan to do research this fall semester during applications. I took practice tests for the GRE and I'm getting roughly 165 Q and 155 V most times with a few higher scores in Q. Considering my strong interest in biotechnology, what are some schools that I should aim for? I really like the MSc research programs at UC Berkeley, UC Irvine, UCLA, Johns Hopkins, Columbia, Stanford, and UCSB.
  25. I'm curious about some Canadian universities for their statistics programs, but I've heard numerous times that the way master's programs work in Canada is much different than the ones in the US. A few questions I had was: 1. Generally, are Canadian programs usually funded and geared towards research careers? I'm personally not looking for a research career. 2. As an American, do I have to apply with a TOEFL? 3. Am I ineligible for any kind of Canadian federal/provincial funding or aid as an American? Can I take out loans in the US and use them toward Canadian programs? 4. Most statistics programs in the US consist of international students. Is it similar in Canada? And is it much harder to get in as an American (or international) student to master's program in Canada? Any other thoughts or comments are welcome. Thanks in advance for all the advice!!!
