  1. Hi everyone, I’m deciding whether to apply for a Ph.D. in sociology with my background. I have a BS in Finance (GPA 3.0) and I recently I have received an M.S. in Marketing Analytics from the University of Rochester (GPA 3.5) on a Fulbright grant. I am interested in studying the impact of western popular culture on identity formation amongst underprivileged ethnic and sexual minorities in the Middle East. I’m worried that my unrelated academic background, my mediocre GRE scores (50th percentile), and my lack of research experience will affect my prospects in securing a sociology (or maybe anthropology) Ph.D. admission, any insights, experiences, and tips about changing disciplines is highly appreciated. Thanks

  3. Hello Guys, I am mechanical engineering MSc student. My undergrad gpa is 2.68/4 and my master gpa is 3.79/4.

  4. Hi everyone! I am currently a MA student at UChicago. As i am thinking about applying for PhD in political science, ( possible international relations thesis with a survey/ quantitative component; Furthermore some US political science admission committees look for quantitative background). I am wondering what quantitative course i should take to strengthen my quantitative credential (i only did microeconomics and macroeconomics in college). *last but not least, because numbers of my elective courses are limited. I am considering taking online for credit course offered by UC Berkeley extension during the summer (e.g. http://extension.berkeley.edu/search/publicCourseSearchDetails.do?method=load&courseId=6614430); I wonder if online courses would be considered legitimate substitute for in-person course on transcript (by members of the admission committee)? Moreover, how do online courses compare with alternatives, such as math camp/ quantitative training session organized by universities/ research institutes? Many Thanks!
  5. Dear all, This is Masum Jujuly from Bangladesh. I have done my B.Sc. in Chemical Engineering from BUET (Bangladesh) holding GPA 2.88/4 and M.Sc. in Process systems design & control in Yeungnam Univ (South Korea) holding 4.22/4.5 GPA. I have a local journal publication and three international conference proceedings regarding on my research (Process Control). I want to continue my PhD in US and I'm preparing for GRE and I'm confident to get 315-320 and I wanna apply for Fall 2013. Although I've a good GPA and research experience in MS but but undergrad GPA is too low. Most of the universities I've seen has a cut-off GPA 3 in undergrad. I am totally confused, since I want to apply for PhD then my undergrad GPA stands for my 'undergrad + Masters' GPA or just only undergrad GPA? I am searching some mid level (tier ii or even tier iii) universities where I can apply for PhD in chemical engineering (e.g. University of Nevada Reno: their minimum admission req is 2.75), but unfortunately I can not find more universities to apply. It's like my undergrad GPA is haunting me like a ghost. I'm totally got frustrated. Is there any list of the universities who accept student's undergrad GPA below 3? Could you please suggest me what I can do right now? Thanks in advance. Best Regards, Jujuly
