  1. Mcgill Geography PhD

    Still waiting for the result! It takes too long for the final decision. I've got no message from the school since I finished all the application process. Is there anyone who got any result from Mcgill? +Is there any deadline for the Canadian school for the final decision like US schools?(I've heard that deadline for the US schools is April 15th)
  2. I recently received three ECE PhD offers from UCLA, Gatech and UIUC. It is really hard to make a decision. Could anyone give me some suggestions. I want to find an industry job after my PhD (Prefer Silicon Valley). UCLA pros: 1. High reputation 2. Good location. 3. Prestigious adviser Cons: 1. Large research group, very few attention from adviser 2. High living expenses Gatech Pros: 1. High reputation for ECE program 2. Interesting research project Cons: 1. Location (Less tech jobs in Atlanta than Los Angeles?) 2. Security UIUC Pros: 1. High reputation for ECE program Cons: 1. Location 2. Cold
  3. Hi guys - I've been lucky enough to be accepted to three and waitlisted to two PhD and PsyD programs. As advised, I'm trying to go about the process of comparing and contrasting the benefits and requirements of each program. I've had a lot of luck gathering the kind of "baseline" info for each program - except for one. Though there is a helpful current student answering some questions, I have about 1,000 of them (as you do when preparing to embark upon 4-7 years and potentially thousands in debt) and I can't get anyone to let me see the program handbook. Is that at all normal? I really feel the need to understand the ins and outs of their clinical requirements, etc. before accepting. Every other program has their handbook accessible via their website for the general public, and I've been admitted, with a grant, and still can't access it. "Proprietary" and "for current students only." I've never heard of such a thing from a university-housed, APA accredited doctoral program. Happy to disclose the school and program if anyone has any advice and/or experience with this. Thank you!!! (Note: I've tried to get it from the current student, the program administrator, even emailed the previously-helpful head of the program [not heard back from him]. My only other thought is to call him and ask directly. Somewhat afraid of alienating people, however.)
  4. Hello all, I am wondering if anyone received an acceptance for a Ph.D. in Aerospace Engineering at CU Boulder for Fall - 18? I had an interview with the POI before the prospective visit day and I was told that the decision is typically made at the end of March. Is this true? Has anyone received the offer yet?
  5. UIUC Political Science PhD Fall 2018

    Excited to get to know everyone else who's been admitted into the Political Science PhD program! Anyone going to visit the campus April 2-4?
  6. There are a few other current PhD students who frequent this forum. I've visited it on and off over the years, but I have not seen many posts from current PhD students about their experiences. I thought this may be of interest to potential applicants, so I decided to write about what I have learned (I am about to graduate, finishing my final defense and thesis in May). I am happy to report that my PhD experience was largely positive. 1) A PhD program is fundamentally a research degree, and research is nothing like taking classes. I think some Stat/Biostatistics programs do a great job of involving students in research early on through rotations with different professors or through reading courses to familiarize students with statistical literature. But there are a lot of programs where students do not start research until the end of their second year. And I have seen many PhD students who were very, very bright (acing all their classes, 4.0 GPA, etc.) but who really struggled with transitioning from being a student to becoming a researcher. I definitely think you should work hard in your classes so you can pass your written qualifying exams and so you can developed a solid foundational understanding, but once you get to the research stage of the program, you really do have to teach yourself a whole new area. Moreover, research is about discovering something new and pushing the boundary of your field. There is just no way of knowing if some "open problems" can be solved or not! It's not like solving a problem on a homework set where there is generally one correct solution/approach. If you do a theoretical topic for your dissertation, you need to prove new theorems that have never been established before, not just "show” something that already has a known solution. And even if you start working on a problem, you may get stuck for long periods of time (or need to cut your losses and give up), or you may end up somewhere completely different from where you started. Unlike problem sets and exams, there are no concrete solutions. For example, for the first paper that I wrote, I was stuck on a proof for my main theorem for three whole months. Nothing I tried seemed to work! But my PhD advisor pushed me to keep trying, and eventually I found the technique that worked. Phew! 2) A lot of the learning in grad school happens outside the classroom, and you need to ask questions. This comes from talking with your peers, meeting with your advisor, attending departmental seminars, and reading papers. Here is the thing: when most people start research, they do not yet have the skills to really excel at it. A small number of people are able to excel right from the get-go, but for most people, it takes a bit of adjustment, and that's okay! It is important to reach out for help if you need it. If I didn't understand an author's proof or a new concept that I had never encountered before, I would ask my advisor to help me. I didn't have much experience with high-performance computing or running simulations on multiprocessing systems, so I asked my more experienced classmates to help show me how to navigate it. 3) Everybody thinks about quitting at some point. This is perfectly normal. A PhD can be a very demoralizing, frustrating experience. Plus, things can happen in your personal life that can derail you. It's just part of life. When I felt like quitting, I just took some time off... maybe 2-4 days of not doing any work to recuperate and assess why I was putting myself through the PhD. After some time off (not too much time off), I could reason to myself why I wanted to get a PhD, and I got right back to work. So if this happens to you, accept your feelings, take a breather, and then really question your own motivations for pursuing a PhD. If you can answer this question to yourself, "Why do I want a PhD? Am I willing to 'tough' it out when I'm feeling frustrated?", then you will be able to pick up right where you left off. 4) Just about EVERYBODY gets their papers rejected, even Distinguished Professors and Nobel Prize winners. My PhD advisor has co-authored over 250 papers and is quite smart, and he still has papers rejected. Professors at all levels get their papers rejected, some multiple times before they are finally published. It’s part of the process. It also happened to me for the first paper I ever submitted. Rejection always stings, but I say if it happens, take a deep breath and cool off a bit. Once you’ve acknowledged the disappointment and cooled off, read the referee reports and comments from the Associate Editor very carefully. Peer review is inherently a subjective process, but for the most part, paper referees take their jobs very seriously, and there will be valid concerns and comments for improving your manuscript (even if some might not be the most diplomatic when letting you know the faults they find with it!). It may be that the journal you submitted to just might not be the most appropriate venue for your work. Or there may be more substantive changes that are needed to make your manuscript more acceptable for publication. After my first paper was rejected, I spent a lot of time with my advisor revising it. We eventually re-worked the whole paper (e.g. cutting down the length of the literature review to the most essential points), we proved a new lemma and a new theorem that showed our new estimator’s improvement over previous estimators, and we performed several new simulation studies that showed quite interesting results. We just resubmitted this paper, making appropriate changes suggested by the peer reviewers who had rejected the manuscript, and I have to say my paper was way better than before. The paper was better off in the long-run. 5) The choice of PhD advisor is critical. It's very important that your PhD advisor is someone whom you can have a great working relationship with, whose research is interesting to you personally, and who is actively publishing in respectable journals. I think the last two are more important than anything else, especially for academic jobs. You basically need to have quality papers and excellent recommendation letters if you want to get a good postdoc or faculty position. Some PhD students are hesitant to work with Assistant Professors and are "star-struck" but there's really no point working with a world-renowned professor if their mentorship style and their research does not align with your personal working style/interests. Plus, an Assistant Professor who is actively publishing their work in top journals can still help you develop your career. Some people need a bit more guidance and an advisor who gently “pushes” them, while others can operate fairly independently and do not need to meet their advisor very frequently. The working style of you and your advisor should mesh well if you hope to be productive. 6) The fields of statistics and biostatistics change very rapidly, so it's more important that you do research that "comes from the heart" than try to keep up with a "hot area." I would not recommend researching a topic that is so archaic and obscure that only a tiny number of people in the world are still working on it. But I also think that you should prioritize your personal interests above what's currently "hot." It can be very difficult to predict what will be "hot" years from now. For example, Dirichlet processes were not very popular when the concept was first introduced, but decades later, Bayesian nonparametrics have exploded in the field of machine learning. It used to be that SVMs were very popular and neural networks lost some of their popularity, but currently, it is the opposite. There is an explosion of interest in neural networks/deep learning and not as much in SVM. The fields of statistics and biostatistics are constantly evolving and changing, so trying to "time" your thesis to a "hot area" can be tricky. But most importantly, a PhD is a very time-consuming commitment (at least 2 years of research). So you do not want to be miserable the whole time you are doing it. So make sure to pick a thesis topic that you find interesting. You probably won’t be able to do that yourself at first, but to that end, your advisor will help you hone in on some interesting open problems to work on. Do not do a topic that you have no personal interest in! Sure, some people might be more impressed if you do (what they perceive to be) a more "difficult" topic, but at the end of the day, you're the one who has to live with yourself and your career choices. And if your heart just isn't into it, it will make finishing the PhD much more excruciating. 7) Do not assume that your PhD thesis topic is the only thing you will work on for the rest of your career. To tie in with my previous point, you can always change gears and switch to a “hot” research area after you are done with your PhD. Finishing the PhD is the start of your career and certainly not where you want to peak. A PhD dissertation is usually on a specific, narrow topic or set of topics. Some people are lucky and can milk their research area for the rest of their career, but many people aren't that lucky. Even if you want to go into industry, an employer of PhD graduates is going to expect that you can teach yourself new things (new software, new models, etc.) on the fly, even if you've never seen/used these things before. In fact, it is this creativity and ability to learn new things quickly that makes hiring a PhD graduate more appealing than hiring someone with juts a Masters. Likewise in academia, professors are teaching themselves new things and moving into new areas all the time. My own PhD advisor began his career doing frequentist nonparametric statistics, but now he has research in a variety of areas of Bayesian statistics. The postdocs I am currently considering are in entirely new areas that I haven't learned before. By the end of the PhD, you should ideally have enough maturity and initiative to teach yourself different areas of statistics.
  7. So I was accepted off the waitlist to the one Developmental Psych PhD program I got an interview at (CUNY Grad Center). The research interest isn't an exact match, but I could probably shape it enough to be okay with it and I would gain skills in tech that I need (eye tracking). My main issues are that the stipend is crap for living in NYC ($26k) and that the classes are at the center in the middle of NYC and the lab is on Staten Island. The first thing anyone tells me when I mention this is the horrible commute (often 2 hours each way when the subway and ferry cooperate) and that there's no good place to live that's in the middle of those two locations. I also have a car and am terrified of figuring out how to have a car in the City. If the research was exactly my interest I would be more willing to look past these issues. I feel like if I took a year or two off and did more relevant research to my interests and gained experience in eye tracking and neuroimaging I could get into a better program with closer research interests. One of my main hesitations is that I don't have a job currently that would allow me to get more experience in those technologies (though I do have a job and could continue to support myself after graduation this May) and I am hesitant to reject the offer without a research job in place. I also don't want to be the jerk who keeps the program and the waitlist waiting until the April 15 deadline. But there's no guarantee I'll know about a job by then... I had an interview for a post bac fellowship that I LOVED the research for (and just found out I didn't get the position) and after seeing a program I love, I feel like I'd be settling for this PhD program. I don't want to get a year or two into it and realize I don't like the decision I made. Advice?
  8. Hi, this is my first post on thegradcafe so bear with me. I recently committed to Temple University to start pursuing a PhD in physical chemistry in the fall. I also received a presidential fellowship that means I get an increased stipend and only need to work as a TA or RA for 2.5 out of the 5 years. Therefore, I am not planning to work as a TA my first semester. From what I've found online, Temple suggests you take two 3-credit electives and a 1-credit "Teaching in Higher Ed" course while teaching. Since I don't have to work as a TA, should I take more than that? I'm used to taking a full load of courses and working 3 jobs in undergrad, so I like to be busy. Also, I was looking at course offerings for next semester and it seems like a majority of the classes I could/would like to take are only offered at night. Is this typical for a full-time PhD program? It seemed odd, since you're strongly discouraged from having another job. Lastly, can anyone who has had this kind of schedule tell me how you managed your time? In my first semester, I won't officially be in a group yet, so I won't have my own office. Do you just bounce around between libraries and cafes to work during the day until your classes at night? How much time do you spend on campus? Sorry for all of the questions, I'm just not sure what to anticipate. Thank you!
  9. Fit vs very close to home

    Any advice for choosing between a better fit, but 5-10 hours from home and a school that is a good fit, but very close to home and close to where you went to undergrad (people in the area you know)? Looking to gauge the value of being close if anyone has experience with that one way or the other. Thanks!
  10. I've received my uchicago admission about a month ago. The advisor assigned to me is a high-rank professor and I've discussed the type of research we're going to do. The funding is really good, and they also support the cost of my travel to Chicago. My UC Riverside admission came about a week ago. A professor has been assigned to me (I don't have much info about him, though the h-index is much less). The funding is just enough to survive, and that's it! Yet, I know that UC Riverside is a U of C, and has it's own benefits. And the University of Chicago is in top 10 schools in the world, but I'm not sure about their CS departments. Please tell me your opinion and please tell me anything that you think might be helpful for the decision. Thank you all very very much.
  11. Seriously confused here. I have very competitive funding at MSU and Peabody. MSU course isn't best suited for me but my advisor is amazing and really well known in the field and in my home country. CRA Peabody course is AMAZING and very much in line with my interests and faculty interests align but I wouldn't have as much support to research in home country. Cambridge and UCL - no funding yet, but thinking about waiting it out. Thoughts?
  12. Hi all, Did any graduate applicant receive an official offer from the ECE department at UofT ? (still waiting) Thanks
  13. ASU Sustainability

    Hi! Anyone here applied to ASU for their Ph.D. in Sustainability? have you heard back?
  14. I’m currently an undergrad that’s about to transfer from a Community College to (maybe) the university of Illinois. While scrolling through the research labs, they seem to be focused on infant/child development or social psychology, meanwhile I hope to get a phd in clinical. I’m wondering if doing research in something like child psychology will hurt my chances of getting into a PhD program, and if I should reconsider where I attend? Also, how beneficial is doing independent research/writing a bachelors thesis? Sorry for infiltrating this grad forum but I couldn’t think of a better place to get an honest answer, thanks!
  15. I applied to the Art History PhD programs at UC Berkeley and University of Toronto and I'm still waiting to get a response from the schools. I checked and saw that three people had posted about the UCB program and they all heard in late January/early February, so I am rather concerned that I am still waiting for a response over a month after the people who have posted. I saw that people who applied to UT began getting responses back in January and others have been receiving responses since then, but I'm still worried that I am still waiting to hear. Is anyone else still waiting to hear from University of Toronto or UC Berkeley? When should I be contacting the schools about my application? Any advice is appreciated!!
  16. Hello! I've been accepted into Columbia and UNC's Biostatistics MS programs and I'm having trouble deciding between the two! I'm leaning towards Columbia but it worries me that their Stats department is apparently not well regarded. Does this reputation extend to their Biostats department, even though their department is still in the top 10? I know that UNC is a better program overall and has more renowned professors, but if my end goal is to pursue a PhD, does it matter where I get my MS? Cost is not a strong factor because I consider living in NYC to be a once in a lifetime opportunity. I am also more interested in eventually working in industry if that helps. (I've heard that Columbia has more ties in industry and UNC is more theoretical with difficult quals) Thanks so much for any replies!
  17. Syracuse University PhD in Anthropology Funding

    Hi everyone! I was recently admitted to Syracuse's PhD program in Anthropology and was initially told that the department was "working hard to secure funding" for me. However, last week I went to their admitted student's weekend, talked to the graduate director and he told me that there was a wait list for funding and I was at the bottom of the list. I really cannot attend this school if I do not get funding. I also got an email from graduate admissions telling me that they were unable to issue me an official acceptance letter if I do not secure funding since I am an international student. Has anyone dealt with a similar situation? Is there anything I can do? What does this mean for me?
  18. Graduate Open House

    Hi, I recently got accepted into Ph.D. program at the University of Rhode Island and received an invitation for the graduate open house. The event will be for 2 days. It's important because funding decisions will be made after the visit. Can anyone give some idea about what one can expect in such events and is there anything important I need to focus on? Thanks in advance.
  19. Hello everyone, Recently I got admission from GSEFM Frankfurt, PhD in Economics program. The admission letter indicates there is no funding for the first year but I may work as RA or TA since the second year. I am considering whether I should accept it, so could any insiders be nice to provide some information about the funding situation? Do most students in the economics track get assistantships in the second year? I quite like the program but it will be a problem for me if I come to Frankfurt and find still no funding after one year. Does anyone have related information?
  20. Hi! So I am still in search of reputed master programmes that prepare strong candidates for future Ph.D. application in the U.S. I want to specialize in clinical child psychology/ developmental neuropsychology. Thoughts? (I am quite desperate and open to new ideas, I appreciate any advice!) Many thanks!
  21. I'm about to start my PhD in Clinical Psychology in NYC at Yeshiva University (Ferkauf health emphasis program) in the fall and I'm a little worried about finances. I haven't heard back from the school about funding yet, but I'm under the impression they don't usually provide much of it. Since I'm not eligible for FAFSA, I'm wondering about other available funding opportunities for international students studying in New York (i.e. bursaries, fellowships, scholarships, loans, grants, etc.). I've looked into a few scholarships, but most of the deadlines have already passed. I will apply to these in the upcoming years, but I would love to hear about what other students in my position have done to fund their studies. It would be particularly AMAZING if anyone from the Ferkauf health emphasis program could provide me with some insight about funding opportunities for international students in that program. Any advice would be greatly appreciated-- thanks in advance
  22. Hey everyone, I got admitted to one of the Social Sciences PhD programs I applied to, which was rather surprising for me as I didn't really expect to receive an offer. So now, I am really confused and finding it hard to take a final decision. I am an International student and I would like to learn more about various aspects of the PhD life in USA. So here are some questions, expecting to receive inputs from all, especially from current PhD students and graduated students. Help is highly appreciated 1) So while reading answers to a question about the challenges during a PhD on Quora, A specific portion of an answer surprised me, which says - Low social status. You are at the bottom of the hierarchy of a decrepit, creaking guild system. Undergrads are happier and sexier (no matter how in-shape or good-looking you might be, because it's not about that) than you are. Do not try to be a part of their world; that is just pathetic. Graduate students in other disciplines will generally look down on you and your colleagues will look down on them. Professors you have no choice but to look up to, since they survived the atrocity of a job market that 80% of your colleagues won't. So is it really true that it is considered as strange when Doctoral students talk to Masters students or undergrad students, or vice versa? Are friendships or relationships between these groups considered as weird? 2) How many hours do I need to work on weekdays? and the same for weekends? I know the answer to this question would depend from program to program and also on the year of the PhD. However, it would be good to have an estimate for Social Science PhD students. I would also like to have a general idea of which of the five years is the best in terms of having free time? 3) What do PhD students do in Summer? What is the duration of Winter vacation and summer vacation in US? Is funding for Social Science PhD students common? I like to travel and explore new places. So would summer be the right time to do it? 4) Is it possible to finish a PhD in less than 5 years? Lets say, If I take more than the actual number of prescribed courses in a Semester, or I complete my thesis in less time than expected. Would it be possible to complete the Program in 4 or 3 years? Or are there any other means of completing a US PhD in less time? 5) How difficult is it to stay in the same city for 5 years? Could it get really boring at one point of time? I ask that because I am still young(23) and I would like to explore new places during this phase of my life. So, to rephrase the question in a better way "How often do PhD students travel? How many times in an year on average? 6) What is it like to be a teaching assistant? In general, I am a shy person and I am not sure if I will be able to teach a huge class. I have no prior teaching experience and my personality doesn't fit to that of a teacher, and I am more interested in research. Thus, I would prefer to be a research assistant rather than a teaching assistant. However, I feel that I will have no choice but to be a teaching assistant as it is a condition mentioned on my offer letter. Therefore, I would like to learn more about being a teaching assistant, what are the jobs of a teaching assistant and how are difficult are each of these jobs? 7) Would there be huge work pressure and lots of sleepless nights? To break the question into parts, (A) Which of the 5 years will involve the highest amount of work pressure? (B) How difficult is it to maintain a 3.5 GPA(which is what I need to secure continued funding) (C) How difficult is the coursework? (D) Is fourteen credits per semester too much workload? (E) Which phase during a PhD is more challenging? The coursework phase or the final dissertation phase? (F) From what I have read, a lot of students who enroll into a PhD program tend to leave it in between, so I would like to know in which phase or year of the program does that generally happen? 8) Since professor jobs in Academia are so competitive, what are some other nice options open for Social Science PhD graduates? 9) What motivates people to pursue a PhD? Is it only the love for research in the field? Or are there other reasons too? When people finally take a decision to pursue a PhD, what other possible career options do they leave behind? (Although this is something which differs for each person, I would like to learn what is the motivation of people to enroll into a PhD program while denying Industry job offers they may have had or discontinuing their job to pursue a PhD) Or is it also the because they have no other option in life except pursuing a PhD? 10) What are the average monthly savings of a typical PhD student in US? I know it depends on the stipend, cost of living, and lifestyle of the student. However, I would like to have an estimate of savings per month, and I am also interested in knowing how does one spend one's remaining stipend after paying the rent and utility bills. 11) On average, how many conferences in an year does a PhD student attend? What are the conference funding provisions in general during a PhD in Social Sciences? 12) Do PhD students even have relationships in their university? Is it possible for PhD students to have girlfriends or boyfriends? Or the high work pressure makes it impossible? Have there been instances of Social Science PhD students being in a relationship? (This question is in the context of Single PhD students only) Inputs and responses to the above questions are highly appreciated. Thank you

  25. Weill Cornell Fall 2018

    Hi folks! Are any of you matriculating into WCGS for Fall 2018?
