  1. Hey everyone! Hard to believe nearly a year has past since the last Ph.D. application thread got started. For those who are going to be applying in the current cycle (enrollment Fall 2022), please feel free to follow along and contribute to this thread. What universities are you considering? What programs will you be applying to?
  2. · A few weeks ago, I was asked to talk to first-year M.A. students about the Ph.D. application process. I prepared a list of what I figure to be key elements, and I figure it might be useful to many on GC who are preparing to go down this path as well. I'm quite certain that some of these points are purely subjective and open to discussion / debate, but having gone through the process a couple of times now, these items ring true based on my experiences and observations. ---------------- Others have surely told you about the state of the industry, so I’m just going to assume that
  3. Hey folks - I am researching programs for Fall 2022, and one of the management programs recommended is the Rady School at UCSD. After poking around the website, it feels like there are relatively few faculty in the Management division doing active research. Is that true, or am I just missing something? Any current management students that could comment? For what it's worth, I am interested in Micro-OB studies. Thanks!
  4. Hi! Anyone apply for Ph.D. in Psych and Law or Social with a concentration in Forensic?? I did and I'm freaking out.
  5. I am currently a Psychology major (junior) and am stressing about whether or not to withdraw from a class that I might get a C in. It’s been a roller coaster deciding my career path but I have finally decided on attending a Ph. D. program for clinical (or forensic) psychology after my undergrad. It should be noted that I also plan on either doing Post Bacc or getting my Masters to boost my resume with research and letters of rec to further show my dedication to applying to a Clinical Psychology Ph. D. program (as I know they are very competitive). I started out planning on Med Schoo
  6. Please see the attached call for students. Thanks! call-for-sudents-university-of-nebraska.pdf
  7. Hello all! I am applying to Clinical Psychology Ph.D. programs and I have a question about experiment descriptions for my research and subject experience. I was a research subject first, then I was a research assistant for the same study. I have separated my CV into research experience and volunteer experience. I explained the experiment in each section. Is it redundant to explain the same experiment twice, in two different sections if the description is the same? Or is it better to name the experiment in the first description and just list the name when I refer to it later in m
  8. Hi, I graduated in December with a degree in Entertainment Design & Tech., and it was during my last semester that I realized my passion was really history and the arts. I applied at Rice and Emory (didn't make the cut, surprise!) because my fiancé's company has offices in Houston (where we currently live) and Atlanta. I'm not sure whether I should apply again, look elsewhere, finish the Master's program at UH and then try to find a Ph.D. only program? In the end, I've never had a good academic advisor so I've been making it up as I go. I'm not sure if my application/writing sample/su
  9. Hello, it appears that most people on this forum are pursuing MSWs but does anyone here is pursuing a Ph.D. in social work in Canada (or want to apply to Ph.D. programs in social work)?
  10. Hey guys, I'm a masters student studying Chinese History. In particular, I am studying Manchu identity in the Qing dynasty. My goal is to continue on to the Ph.D level, and ultimately find a tenure-track job. I'm currently finishing up the third year of Chinese language classes and have an important decision to make this summer. This summer, I have been accepted to two language programs. The first being TUSA which is an almost fully funded two months immersive Mandarin program in Taiwan. The second being a one month Manchu language program in the US, aimed at getting scholars with no prior exp
  11. Hi, I'm in my second semester as a Ph.D. student in Comparative Literature. I know some people might think that it's too early for me to start worrying about what to do to get hired, others might be thinking that it's never too early, others might be saying "you're a comparative lit. major, there are no jobs" lol, but please just stick with me a moment. I'm looking for advice on how I can become a more competitive applicant when applying for assistant professor jobs (and similar jobs) after I finish my Ph.D. I'm technically first-generation college student (my parents dropped out of coll
  12. Hello everyone, I currently a third-year undergraduate pursuing a B.S. in biochemistry with around a 3.0 GPA and the intent of obtaining a doctorate degree in the biological sciences upon graduation. What are my chances of entering a great graduate program? Science Activities: Three years of research experience (1.75 years at a top-20 institution and 1.25 years at an ivy league known to be a STEM superpower). One research course focused on advanced functional genetics. Honors including McNair E. Scholar, several Undergraduate Research Fellowships, and the Best Poste
  13. Hello everyone! I figured I'd start this thread up especially since I haven't seen a similar thread for this cycle yet. I applied to 13 Ph.D. programs: U of Denver, UCONN, Rutgers, Penn State, Boston U, Catholic U, U of Maryland (BC), Temple, U of Houston, U of Pittsburgh, George Mason, and Yale (because I currently work there as a postgrad) Feel free to divulge whatever details you'd like to share here! And once interview rounds start approaching and decisions start pouring in, questions and other related things are more than welcome!

  15. Hello folks? Anyone out here applying for 2018 I/O Psych Ph.D. programs? Let's connect! It would be helpful and fun.
  16. Hi all! I'm interested in applying for Ph.D. programs in the fall for fall 2018 entry in international/comparative education policy. I'd like to ask what I need to do in order to be a more competitive candidate for Ph.D. programs, and what are some realistic chances of getting accepted. Currently I am a student in a top 20 education school in higher education administration with a GPA of 3.75. My undergraduate degree was at a public AAU school in east Asian Languages and literature and in international relations with a GPA of 3.46. After graduating from undergrad, I spent four ye
  17. Could you advise or comment me any evaluation and information in below universities? Those all are Biostatistics Ph.D. Indiana University - Purdue University (IUPUI)/ NYU/ Virginia Commonwealth University(VCU)/ University of Illinois-Chicago/ University of Florida Let's talk about that. Thank you very much.
  18. Hey everyone! I created this thread for those who have been accepted to graduate programs at Washington University in St. Louis starting fall of 2017. I just found out I have been accepted to the PhD program in political science, and given that WUSTL was my first choice, I'm almost positive I'll be attending WashU this fall. That said, I'm hoping to get in contact with some of the other individuals who have also been accepted to WashU (regardless of program), so please feel free to comment on this thread or pm me if you've been accepted and/or are planning to attend WashU beginning
  19. Hello GradCafe! I'm a Fall 2017 applicant for U.S. political science PhD programs. I really appreciate the camaraderie and kindness displayed in the applicant discussion forums, as well as the invaluable pieces of advice and information. To that end, I'm here to ask for some more advice! As the application cycle is wrapping up, my most likely options will be Michigan and Columbia. I haven't made a decision yet, but one thing that holds me back from Michigan's otherwise outstanding program is their funding situation: they have a so-called ten-term rule (http://lsa.
  20. Hi, all! I am writing to see if anyone is applying to the Ph.D. in Education programs at UW. I applied for the Learning Sciences and Human Development program. I also applied to Cambridge and Washington State University. I have an interview for Cambridge later this month, but I haven't heard from WSU or UW, yet.
  21. I wanna get some information about ranking in Biostatistics Ph.D. program in the US. Furthermore, could you evaluate Ph.D. program in New York University, IUPUI(Indiana University), and University of Miami? Thank you very much, in advance!
  22. I received a letter stating that I was placed on the wait list for the University of Tennessee's English Ph.D. prgram (Fall 2017). When I emailed to check to see where I am on the list, they said that they didn't have the list finished yet so they couldn't tell me. But they did say "But if we do get a no from the first round then you are the second person in your division. So it is very likely you would get admission and funding." What does the division part mean, and do you think its likely that I'll get an acceptance offer? This is my first choice in schools, no other acceptances right now,
  23. I'm an international applicant for Ph.D. program in Biostatistics. I had selected for an interview in two universities, NYU and VCU. In the process of an admission, after pre-screening, is there the interview for all international applicants? It means, I'm wondering if there is an admision case without the interview in Ph.D. program of Biostatistics. In addition, I want to know how to prepare the interview. Please, share your valuable informaiton. Thank you very much, in advance.
  24. Dear all, I am currently in the process of applying for several Ph.D. programs and I listed the requirements for specific programs in my PS. I appreciate any advice about structure and language(since I am an international student). Thanks!!:) Personal Statement_Xie(11:25).docx
  25. Hi everyone! I am a relatively new member but have been following your crucial insights on profile evaluations for two months. I wanted to post my own profile for your consideration I am a prospective applicant for Ph.D. programs in Political Science (Comparative Politics is prioritized) for the Fall 2017 application season. Please have a look at my profile: Undergrad Institution: Bilkent University (Among the best 3 universities in Turkey) Major: International Relations Minor: History (I don't really think it will help so much) GPA: (3.50/4.00, WES) Grad Institu
