  1. I had recently submitted my SOPHAS application. A couple weeks ago, I made the request for my transcripts to be be sent from an institution, but it is taking a while for the registrar to process the information. Additionally, I had ordered my GRE scores, but I have no guarantee they will make it in time for my December 1st deadlines. My question is, how do departments evaluate SOPHAS material that come in later? Will I be penalized for the delay in the getting some of the supporting documents in, or am I ok so long as it has been postmarked before the deadline? My SOPHAS applications are
  2. Thought I'd start the thread for prospective doctoral students applying to start in Fall 2021. I'm starting it early so we can discuss and support each other given the added challenges of applying during a pandemic. I'm applying for my PhD in Social & Behavioral Health programs.

Background: I am from Eastern Europe (extremely low-income family even by local standards) Primary research area of interest: organometallic chemistry Languages: Russian (native), Ukrainian (native), English (fluent), German (a little). BSc in chemistry from #1 university in my home country (almost unknown internationally) GPA: about 92-93, which is about 4.0 on a 4-point scale I guess.

  5. Hi, I am applying to PhD programs in Biomedical Engineering. I want to cite my papers in my Statement of Purpose. This was advised by my current research advisor. How should I do so, I dont want to keep bothering him. Currently, I have: Then I have a references page at the bottom. Are there other ways to do so? Also I am not a first author on these papers, I am second and 4th for context. Thank you in advance.
  6. Hello, I am looking for information on program rankings and admitted applicant profiles for computational neuroscience programs. These programs are much more math heavy than traditional neuroscience so I thought you folk might have some info. GRE Scores? Math/Physics GRE beneficial? Weighting of undergrad/grad math coursework? Is neuro coursework needed, or is neuro research sufficient? What does it take to get into MIT? U Wash? Caltech? etc...
  7. Hello everyone! I hope you all are well as you can be, considering everything 2020 has collectively thrown at us. I saw posts about computational biology/bioinformatics/systems biology programs for previous years but there is nothing posted for the 2021 cycle. I thought I'd be nice to get things started for this cycle - it was great read through previous posts for those interested in more computationally-inclined programs. It'd be nice to hear about everyone's thoughts on where they are applying to and to hear about news/updates/tips anyone has as well as we progress with application
  8. Hi everyone! I am currently applying to PhD programs for biomedical science. I really just need an umbrella program because I have too many interests to confidently apply to a specific program. I have a lot of research experience but a 3.4 GPA , but my last two semesters is a 3.7 (adding that in my "additional information" section for applications. I have had the same mentor and advisor my full 4 years at undergrad. I have been in independent research with him since my summer sophomore year and currently doing an honors research thesis with him. He is writing my letter of rec,
  9. Hello folks, I’m looking for brutal critique to my PhD statement of purpose. Reason being: all family and friends are not in academia and think my SOP is grrreat, and I know there must be something to improve. Also imposter syndrome. Any takers? I’ll DM it, love yew.
  10. Hi! I need some advice please. So I have an offer from a Canadian University - Master's program and the course will be commencing in Jan 2021. And now that Canadian unversities have come up with a quarantine plan for internationa students it is possible to travel to Canada. I also have a PhD offer from an Australian University - not an offer exactly but my prof has agreed to accept me as a PhD candidate and I've also been working on related work. But the only issue is that with the current situation my Australian prof has told me that they are not quite sure when international students will be
  11. Hi everyone! I'm reapplying to Neuro PhD programs after an unsuccessful round in senior year of undergrad (F2019). I only applied to Pitt, Vanderbilt (waitlisted for interview slot), Columbia, and Johns Hopkins. 2 years later, I now have some more research experience and focus on what I want to do as I'm in my 2nd year in an NIH IRTA postbac. I'm interested in behavioral neuroscience, neuroendocrinology and psychiatry. Any help in judging my stats against the schools I'm applying to would be seriously appreciated! Stats Undergrad: Dual B.S. degrees in Psychology and Co
  12. Hi all, I have 3 years of post-bac experience in a schizophrenia/substance use/mood disorder research clinic at Yale and 160/158 on GRE. I completed an undergrad thesis and also have 1 year of undergrad research experience. However, my undergrad GPA is a 3.45 (from SUNY college). Do I even have a chance of getting in to an APA accredited clinical psych PhD program with my undergrad GPA? I feel like even if I take the GRE again and improve my scores, my undergrad GPA could always be a hinderance in acceptance to one of these programs. Please let me know your thoughts and if you have a
  13. Dear all, I am a non-US citizen and want to apply to some US universitites as well as in some other countries for a Neuroscience PhD degree. I am currently finishing my second year in a neuroscience master program at a top university in my country, my GPA by far is 3.86 (masters - neuroscience) and around 3.7 (bachelors - law). TOEFL 110, two years of part time research experience (neuroscience, related to what I want to do in PhD), okay LoRs, one international (however not famous) conference and one local conference. Also a paper which includes me as an author is in the
  14. Hello. I am currently searching for universities that offer a PhD in Theological Studies. I first will need to enter a Master's program as my academic background is not of the field. I currently have a MBA. My ultimate goal is to become a professor. I am needing assistance in my search due to my need for an (mostly if not completely) unbiased school. Those I have come across so far are seemingly focused on Christian ministry and mostly from a traditional/conservative viewpoint. It is a bit frustrating because I do not want to miss out on a solid education because the school is pushing a biase
  15. Hi, I have written a SOP and a Personal Statement (diversity) and am wondering if anyone would be willing to look them over and give me some feedback? I am from an historically underrepresented group and am the first in my family to pursue a PhD, so I am a bit out of my depth here. Any help will be greatly appreciated (PM me)!
  16. Hello! My name is Jessica, I earned my Master's degree in Cognitive and Clinical Neuroscience from London, UK. I am now in the process of applying to PhD Psychology, or Neuroscience, or Neuropsychology programs. After graduating in January 2020, I have been and still am endlessly searching for potential supervisors across Canada and USA. My research interest is in the neuropsychology of memory, cognition, and aging. I am particularly interested to examine the impact of healthy and pathological aging brain on memory processes and the strategies to improve brain function in order to r
  17. Hello everyone. I am currently applying to psyd and phd programs for clinical psychology or social psychology. I graduated with a BA in applied psychology and a minor in political science, with a 3.5 gpa. I am currently in my last year of my masters program in marriage and family therapy with a certificate in working with spanish-speaking clients. I have worked in 3 research projects. I currently have a 4.0 GPA in my MFT program. I have presented at WPA and my group research is about "Why do Gay men compete?" I am also working on a research project about latinx representation in the media. I a
  18. Salut! I know it's pretty early, but I thought I would get the thread started for the next application cycle. I haven't narrowed down my list of schools, but I study eighteenth-century literature, culture, and political thought with emphasis on trade and commerce. Excited to see who else is applying and what you want to research! 😊
  19. When graduating with a PhD in clinical psychology, does the prestige of your graduate program effect your career in the short and long term? My career goals are centered around academic research with an interest in consulting. I'm wondering if the national reputation of a program (ie. graduating from a school in the top ten vs. top 50) is a significant factor in the trajectory of your career.
  20. Is it wise to submit a low GRE score(310, 157Q) if the University made it optional? How does submitting it or not submitting it affect my application?
  21. Hi, I am currently enrolled in a Bachelor's 3 year (Hons) degree course in Physics . I am planning to apply to PhD graduate program of some US colleges. I was confused whether applying to PhD program is any good since many Master's students will also apply and my chances of getting into would be close to zero. Is this true or will they take into account that I am a Bachelor's student while evaluating my Application? Also I have not published any research paper as of yet. Though I am doing a research project currently which might yield a paper by next year. But since I do not ha
  22. Anyone applying for a PhD in social work? What is your story?
  23. I am currently an associate level clinical social worker working in an inpatient hospital as a DBT/RO-DBT therapist. I still have about two more years until I become an LCSW in my state. I graduated with my BSW at GMU (3.89 GPA) and MSW at UW (3.98 GPA) with one co-authored publication from my bachelors around dementia care using music interventions. I am currently in a professional training program to become a Registered Expressive Arts Therapist on top of a Licensed Clinical Social Worker. My question is would I benefit more from a PhD in Psychology or Social Welfare/Social Work? My lon
  24. Hi everyone! Really sorry about this post. I am new here on Grad Cafe and working on my applications to graduate school (21 Fall) right now, and I am really nervous. It would be really helpful if you guys could take a look and provide me some feedback on my profile. (This is similar to What are my chances post....I found some links in the pinned post not validated anymore...Again I apologize for this....) I am currently a senior in UIUC with a crappy GPA of 3.4/4.0 (many Bs, some As, one C) majoring in Astronomy + Physics minoring Math. Here are some details about my profile:
