  1. I have been accepted to the Maxwell School Department of Political Science at Syracuse University. However, I am still on the waitlist at Minnesota Political Science. The waitlist process have been so long and I am still waiting for a decision and there are four days until the decision deadline. I was so sure at the beginning that if admitted, I would choose Minnesota because at the PolSci faculty, there is a professor with whose research interests mine totally overlap and I think that I would be a good fit there. Besides, it is a great school (when you get used to the cold weather there). On the other hand, my another application, Syracuse offered me admission. I will be covered by an external scholarship during the first two years (for 9 months each year). Syracuse also offered me a summer funding guaranteed for 3 years. Also, they seem very excited to have me there. I have not still received admission from Minnesota but I have a hunch that I will be admitted eventually. In case of a rejection, there is nothing to think about but if admitted, I do not know how to make my decision about which school to choose. My mind and heart were set on Minnesota completely but now I am very confused and thought that you guys might give me useful advice.
  2. So, I've been waiting for a month and a half now and my status is still 'Awaiting Program Decision'. Sending the department an email just returns an automated generic BS bot reply. April 15th is coming up and I have two offers. UofM is above these in my list. I'm still waiting, anyone heard if the results are out yet for CS Masters program?
  3. Applying to Environmental Engineering MS (and later PhD) here. I got an acceptance from Carnegie Mellon Feb 1st (funding but not full ride), and an acceptance from Montana State University March 27th. I still have not heard back from the other two schools, (Oregon State University and University of Minnesota). Minnesota is my number 1 pick because of their Bioremediation focus (which is my focus). But I don't know what to do because the April 15th deadline is this Sunday! Also Minnesota seems to be avoiding me because the professor I have been communicating with for the last year is suddenly unresponsive and the admissions department is also not responding to me... Do yall think I should just accept my number 2 (Carnegie Mellon) and withdraw if I get a good offer from Minnesota? I would rather not tarnish bridges and be out a $100 deposit if I don't have to. But I will if I need to. Carnegie Mellon said they would give me another week past April 15th if I need it, I just don't know how long to hold out and I am going crazy. Also, does anyone know if University of Minnesota Civil and Environmental Engineering Masters offers have gone out yet? I suspect a first round went out a while ago but don't have any information on that. Thanks! GPA: 3.69 Major: Biology , Minor: Chemistry GRE: 159 Verbal (83%), 160 Quantitative (76%), 4.5 Writing (82%)
  4. Hi, I couldn't find a thread for the Humphrey School of Public Affairs. I received a mail to check my application status sometime in the last week, and was pleased to see a bold "accepted"! No news on the funding yet, though. Anyone with news?
  5. Hi! I am deep in the conundrum most of us must be facing/have faced - the reputation/cost trade-off. I was admitted to the MPP programs at Ford School of Public Policy at UMich with $30k tuition waiver (1/3rd of the tuition), and to the Humphrey School at the University of Minnesota with in-state tuition + $20k (I am an international student, so in-state tuition is a godsend). So my problem is this - Even with the funding, I will rack up a debt of about $60k if I decide to attend Ford (provided I don't land a campus job in the coming semesters). However, the program's reputation is much better than the Humphrey MPP, both within the US and internationally. It also aligns with my interest, gives me the flexibility I desire from the curriculum, and has a wide variety of courses and research I am interested in. At Humphrey, on the other hand, I will have a much smaller debt ($15-20k), but the program is less to my liking, though not so bad as to be rejected entirely. The number of courses offered is fewer, too. My question, thus, is this - Is the Ford MPP actually worth the extra cost I will put into it? Especially since my other alternative brings to cost to a third of the estimate? Thanks!
  6. Hello all, So, I have a tough decision to make. I have struggled to find out what I want to do as a career then I came across SLP. I researched it and learned about it from my sister, who just passed her PRAXIS for SLP. I knew this would be something I would enjoy doing. I love the idea of it, it is very interesting to me, I love working with kids, and I would like to work in a hospital or school. However, I do not have a very good GPA and I am nervous about being screwed in life if I don't end up getting into a masters program for SLP even if I reapply and don't get in because I don't want to be reapplying for years and years. My GPA is 3.04 right now entering my spring semester as a junior, it is low due to me starting out in biology and figuring out that is not for me, I also didn't have good study habits and didn't try as hard as i could have. My first semester of this junior year I did get a 3.8 GPA and took a language development and communicative disorders class and got an A in that. My current university does not offer CSD major, so I am trying to decide if i should transfer to university of Minnesota Twin-cities and further pursue this or find something else like Athletic training which I am also considering as my other choice if I choose not to go the SLP route. Also, if I did transfer it would be 4 semesters of work to graduate with a Speech language hearing sciences degree which is the same as CSD. Is it possible for me to get into a program? I am a male by the way, so I don't know how much of an advantage that gives me in the selection process because I see there are few males in the profession. I have read posts like mine where people have gotten in with low GPA's with bolstering other things like GRE and experience but I am just nervous because I feel like that is only a couple people and that doesn't mean it would happen for me. Any help or suggestions would be great!
  7. Hello, I'm a Korean student who graduated and was fortunately accepted to the MS in HR/LER program at UIUC and Minnesota. I have not received any funding from either of the two programs, but I was wondering if anyone can help me with my decision between the two. Since I don't have a greencard/citizenship, I know it won't be easy getting internships/job offers in America, but I at least hope to go to a school that will provide me with the best chances in getting one. I hope someone out there can help me out. Thanks!
  8. I recently received my B.A in psychology, and I would like to pursue a master’s program in Occupational Therapy. Ideally, I would like to begin my graduate studies in Fall of 2017. I read the list of prerequisite coursework in a few programs, and I am missing the following: Human Anatomy, Human Physiology, Human Development across the Life Span, and Medical Terminology. I plan to relocate to Minneapolis in a few months and I wonder if I can take these courses in time. Does anyone know about a suitable summer or online program for these courses? If possible, I would prefer to take them in the area of Minnesota. Thanks!
  9. Hello, I have been accepted to Humphrey School of Public Policy, University of Minnesota with a Humphrey Scholarship, and George Washington University with a Global initiative scholarship for a Masters in Public Policy. Both are covering about 67% of my tuition (GW is a more expensive school, though). After talking, to various faculty and students, I get a sense that DC is a better place to study public policy. However, some people are also of the opinion that Humphrey is one of the very well-connected schools. Given the more expensive tuition of GW and higher cost of living in DC, my question is if it is worth paying about 20,000 extra/per year to be in George Washington University over University of Minnesota. I would really really appreciate the feedback. Thanks

  12. I was accepted to both the University of Minnesota and the University of Chicago! Yay. I received the Title IV-E fellowship at Minnesota which will cover my tuition and also guarantee me work after school is over. U of Chicago also gave me a very good scholarship but I would still have to pay some tuition. I am attracted to U of C because it's in Chicago, it's a prestigious school with a large intellectual community. I am torn between staying in MN and having very little debt or taking a chance on a new city at a prestigious school. Anybody have advice?
  13. Hi guys, I see that HR is not too popular of a topic on here but I really hope someone can assist to provide me their two cents on what you would choose in my situation. I applied to some of the top schools for masters of human resources/labor relations (Cornell, MSU, Minnesota, UIUC, OSU) and was luckily offered admissions. I have narrowed down my choices to 3 of them but I am having a very hard time finalizing my decision. - School A (Cornell): Admitted with 1 semester waived tuition (I've always dreamed of attending an Ivy but it provides the least funding...Is there any possible way to negotiate?) - School B: Admitted with assistantship to waive 1st year tuition and receive a monthly stipend of ~$700 (Only 10hrs/week but not sure if it'll impact my studies. Also, it's not guaranteed for the 2nd year) - School C: Admitted with $12,500 fellowship for the first year plus in-state tuition for both years (No need to work and guarantees a cheaper tuition rate for the 2nd year compared to the other 2 choices) It doesn't seem like there is a clear cut ranking for HR Masters programs, but it seems like the same companies go to recruit at all of those programs. Would attending Cornell give me an upper-hand on job/salary prospects when compared to the rest of those top programs? Which school would you choose if you were in my shoes? Any advice is greatly appreciated! Thanks~
  14. It is almost decision time, and after reading everything related to all the schools I am considering I am still so confused and need help. I have narrowed my options to three schools, taking out Maryland and Evans because I am not going to get any money from them. That leaves Humphrey-MPP, La Follette-MPA, and American SPA-MPP. Background: I am from MN and plan to focus on social policy. Minneapolis is the best city for me- point for Humphrey, but the problem is that I know I would be fine (who knows, maybe better than fine) in both Madison and DC. DC of course has a million opportunities, but then again it also has the ultra ambition folks, my main reservation about the city. The best school for me is La Follette, the highest ranking, especially well known for social policy. I know Humphrey is really well regarded in the Midwest as well. American I am more uncertain about; does anyone know if it’s actually a good school? The best price is American. For the total two years I would only have to take out 7000 in loans, for La Follette its about 20000, and for Humphrey its 26000 (although I am on a waitlist for a scholarship). All of these are acceptable amounts to take out in loans, although the thought of less than 10000 in loans is so good (and I might be able to put away 5000-10000 this summer to cover that anyway…). So I just want some outside opinions on weighing these factors. City is the least important. It’s really a balance between financial concerns and quality of school. I really want to better understand just how American stacks up academically. Thanks in advance for any advice!
  15. From what I've seen, there aren't many agronomy/crop science graduate students on here, so this is a shot in the dark. But it's harder to find information on these programs than the more popular programs, so any advice would be much appreciated. Right now, I'm considering a crop science M.S. fellowship from Illinois-Urbana Champaign, an assistanceship at Minnesota, and waiting on a response from the program at Cornell. I know that all these programs are reputable, but I'm having a hard time making the final decision. Should I hold out for the Cornell decision? Does anyone know if one of these in particular has greater job placement or has a reputation that offers more opportunities for its grads? I don't personally know anyone in this field, so I'll be thankful for any input.
