  1. If anyone here has applied to Penn State for their Ph.D. in English program and you know about this, please clarify for me. I would really appreciate it. Thanks! So on the English department's website, it says that a SOP (1-3 double-spaced pages) is required. However, when I went to start the application, the portal says that part of the documentation required is a personal statement with the following prompt: "Why do you want to pursue a higher degree in English studies at a time when the Liberal Arts are often less valued than science and technology?" This doesn't sound like a
  2. Hi, I am looking to do my PhD in computer science, with a focus on AI and machine learning.I am lucky to get two fully funded PhD offer from Purdue CS and Penn state IST (information Science and Technology). Offered an RA ship in Penn state. The professor is pretty good. Offered TA ship from Purdue. Students usually have 2 years of time to explore before settling down with a professor. Your suggestions are highly appreciated.
  3. Hello! I’m an Asian student with offers of admission to the counseling graduate program at both Penn State and UPenn. I’m having a hard time deciding. Penn State’s program is ranked among the top ten, but UPenn seems to be more reputed as a school. However UPenn’s program is only a year long including the practicum , while Penn State offers a two year program with a practicum of 1.5 years. My goal is to pursue doctoral study (not seek licensure for practice) so I’m wondering if I should go ahead with UPenn. I will have to take a loan for either (and the tuition is in the same ball park),
  4. I have been accepted in both Penn State University as well as Temple University for Master's in Engineering Management. However, I'm having a hard time deciding which university to choose. Temple is more towards the cheaper side in terms of tuition and fees and is also located in Philadelphia. Whereas, I got an admit from Penn State Great Valley which isn't the main campus and is located in a suburban area but students get part-time easily. I cannot find out information on both these universities much so I need a little help if anybody has some insights to share, that would be wonderful.
  5. I am applying for the ME PhD program at Penn State starting Spring 2019. I have only contacted one professor from the department. He has encouraged me to apply but has not yet set up an interview. Anyway, I'm planning to apply. I have a relatively good resume with a few years of research and teaching experiences, several published works including a textbook, some book chapters, and some journal papers and conference proceedings. I have received my master's degree in the US so the English proficiency exam will be waived for me. My GPA is 3.6. However, I'm afraid if my GRE score is not compet
  6. Hi everyone, I’m a PhD candidate for 2019 Fall. I received 2 offers, from Penn State (Hershey college of medicine), Biomedical Sciences, and University of Utah, Molecular Biology . I feel they have similar program settings (similar stipend, and both schools require about 5.5 years to graduate, 3 rotations, etc.) so I really can’t decide now 🤯. Can I get some suggestions from you guys? Thank you so much!
  7. Hey guys! I recently got accepted into Penn State's Master's program for speech and I'm super nervous about committing. The program offers everything I want, but I am nervous about the town and housing. I am from NYC and I am nervous about moving to the middle of PA. Can anyone tell me some good things about the area (things to do, festivals, shopping, etc.)? Also was wondering if their downtown is fun. I appreciate any input!
  8. Hi I have been extremely lucky in being accepted into two great universities for my masters. Before I provide the details of the programmes, here is a little bit about my background. I hold a Bachelors in Business Studies from a reputed Indian university. My interest in economics is mostly fuelled by textbooks, online courses and, a few introductory courses at college. I plan to get a job after my master's programme somewhere in the development policy sector. Georgetown University: Pros: DC hence internship opportunities, math camp, more quantitative courses Cons:
  9. Hello! I'm an international student applying to MA programs in rhetoric and composition. I got 2 MA-only offers (which I've declined), and 2 MA --> PhD offers, from Penn State and UW. The MA-PhD offers are the ones I am still considering. This morning I woke up to an e-mail from the DGS of the University of Washington saying that they can now offer me funding for 5 years. I was originally on the waitlist for funding, with only a "small chance" of getting it. Now the funding comes in the form of a fellowship for the spring quarter of my first year, and TAship for the rest. It's upwards
  10. Hi guys! I'm having a really hard time deciding between Purdue, GWU, and Penn State. If there are any graduate students who are in these programs or simply if you have any insight I would greatly appreciate it! Purdue and Penn State are ranked super well but I'm mainly worried about the surrounding areas being too rural and then GWU sounds great but is definitely the most expensive option. Please help me decide, thanks!!
  11. I have PhD offers from Princeton, Maryland, Penn State, and UC Santa Barbara. I feel blessed to have the offers I do, but I have no idea how I am going to decide between them. Help!
  12. Hello, I want to work at UN/ government related positions after studying international relations/affairs or security. I would greatly appreciate it if I could get help choosing an appropriate school considering employment rate, prestige, and network. Thank you all very much in advance! Schools I got accepted into: 1) Fletcher (MALD) 2) GWU-ESIA (International Affairs) 3) DU - Josef Korbel (International Security/Relations) - 30k scholarship 4) Penn State - SIA (International Affairs)-25k scholarship
  13. I went onto my Penn State application today and it said they made a decision and were in the process of notifying students. Turns out I got a letter in the mail at home and didn't get in. As an undergrad student here it's super frustrating lol but if anyone is waiting and wondering, PSU has started rejecting
  14. So does anyone know about this fairly new Masters of Science in Additive manufacturing and Design program (established 2017)? I applied to it and got accepted as a self-supporting student. Did anyone else apply to it?
  15. Just got an email from Penn State saying to check my status page, which says this: "Your intended program/PLAN of study has completed the first step of the admissions process and has offered you admission pending an eligibility review by the Graduate School. To begin the second step of the admission process, you now need to accept or decline the graduate program offer of admission using the buttons below to notify the Graduate School of your decision.The Graduate School will complete the review of your application and communicate with you in the near future." I am confused! If I hit
  16. Anyone applying for Petroleum Engineering PhD programs for Fall 2018? Which schools are you considering? Anyone who has previously applied and got accepted, can you provide some feedback on chances of getting into TAMU/Penn State/UT Austin/ U of Houston/Stanford: Undergrad: 2.9/4 (India) MS: 3.33/4 (UK), with thesis GRE (321, 5.0) What kind of profiles get admitted to above mentioned schools?
  17. Hi everyone! I'm very interested in Penn State's (not UPenn) Bioengineering PhD program, but I have not been able to find much information regarding admission stats or applicant profiles. If you have been accepted to this program or know any info about the selection process, replies would be great! I'm looking to apply for the Fall of 2018. I also have heard that some applicants to this program that were rejected were offered admission to Penn State's 1-year non-thesis masters program in Biomedical Engineering, which I wouldn't mind at for a back up situation. Have any of you participated
  18. I'm currently deciding between Penn State MAS program and the Cornell MPS program. Both will be a one year program because I did my undergrad at PSU. As a current Penn State undergraduate I'm leaning towards the staying here because I'm familiar with the area, the professors, have a job, research hook ups, ect However, I know Cornell has very good name recognition. My main goal is to go straight into industry. I looked over the post graduate survey for Cornell and was unimpressed with the average salary (70k) seeing as a few months ago I turned down a 63k a year job hoping to get acce
  19. Hi you guys. I'm an international student, applying for PhDs in political science. I have been rejected by many of top choices, and what I have now are UC Santa Crutz and Penn State. Both are PhDs. Regardless of their positions, living expenses, can anyone please give me some comments on these two departments. As I said at the begining, I'm an international student who don't know much of these two programs. I browsed their websites and it seems like Penn State was quite a quantitative-centered department, but UCSC did not provide much information. UC system is much more famous in my country, b
  20. I'm in GIS. I've been offered funding from Penn State (RA) and UGA (TA). Do any of you guys know the strengths/weaknesses of these two departments? I'm more inclined towards Penn State since it is considered to have a better program. I know Penn State has geoVista Center but not entirely sure what it has been focusing on.
  21. Hi everyone! I really need some advice. I have been accepted into two PhD programs and I am now torn between which one to pick The programs are both Biology PhD Programs at Penn State University and McGill University. They also would both involve working with animal/plant genetics and evolutionary biology. Here are some pros and cons that I have considered so far... McGill Pros: - It's in Montreal... - The biology program collaborates with the Smithsonian Tropical Research Institute (STRI) - so I would be associated with STRI and receive funding from there - I a
  22. Hi guys, after being a diligent follower of the site, here goes my first post. I am an international student interested in environmental policy PhD for fall 2016.

  23. Hi, I am undergoing the application process for Counselor education program at Penn State currently and I completed my interview. However, I have to write a writing sample for the same.I would be given an hour time after I received the topic to submit the sample. Any idea what the contents of the topic would be?
  24. Just wondering how many people (if any, on here) have heard back either way from Penn State's Geoscience department? I applied right before the deadline (December 15th) and have not heard anything yet. I'm guessing / banking on not getting in, but still antsy to know either way. Thanks in advance!
  25. Hey guys! I emailed Penn State at the beginning of March to ask about admissions decisions.. here is the answer I got back. "No need to apologize for your inquiry. Unfortunately, we have already made our first round offers of admission. At this point, you have not advanced to the final round of applicants. I hope this information helps. " What does this sound like to y'all? Waitlist? Rejection? Thoughts?
