  1. Hi! I am beginning the application process for the upcoming application process for urban planning programs, to enter in fall of 2020. I'm a little unsure of where I stand, whether I have a good shot at the schools I am applying to or whether I should try applying to less competitive programs. I would really appreciate your help in letting me know your assessment! Some background about myself: I attended (on academic scholarship) a mid-tier state school that has about a 55-60% acceptance rate, where I graduated from in 2018 with two BA degrees in non-planning social science fiel
  2. I’ve been offered spots at SFU’s masters resource management (for which I will apply to planning stream ) and to Waterloo MA Planning. considerations: - I am interested a diversity of social justice issues, including public health equity and Indigenous rights. I’ve focused a bit already on how environmental policy intersects with health and treaty rights - I have a background in community engagement and social sciences, I think I’m more interested in the social side of things -I want to eventually be back home in BC (been in ON for 5 years) - I’might want to go on
  3. Hey all,I am an Architect from India. I completed my bachelor's degree in Architecture ( B.Arch ) in 2017 which is a 5-year degree.I have many backlogs and one year drop. My final grades are 7.8 CGPA ( i.e 7.4 x 7.8 + 12 = 70% )equivalent to 3.7/4 Canadian GPA according to this calculator > https://www.greedge.com/blog/fall-2018-convert-cgpa-usa-germany-canada/ ( scroll down two pages for Canada Gpa calculator on the page )I have 7.5 overall scores in IELTS academic.I have 2.5 years of work experience.Is my profile eligible for pursuing masters in Canada?The degree I want to pursue is1.Mast
  4. What do people recommend as far as preparing for interviews? Obviously, know your own research. I know the work I've done at 2/3 institutions like the back of my hand. The 3rd was a 3 month internship I'm more vague on, but am currently reading the publication that came out of it. I have my first interview next week, and I know I should know the research of the people I'm interviewing with (I have my itinerary). 1/5, though, works on something pretty removed from my interests, and another works mostly with techniques I've never used or read much on. Should I have talking points for e
  5. Hey everyone! I thought I'd start a thread for those applying to urban / regional / community planning masters programs for Fall 2017. We can share thoughts on programs, application stats, acceptance/rejection dates, funding, etc. I don't know too much about all the planning programs, but right now I'm thinking I'll apply to the programs at Queen's (SURP), UofT (MScPl), Waterloo (MA/MES), and Ryerson (MPl). Let me know your thoughts!
  6. Is anyone here interested in attending UMD this fall?
  7. Didn't see a thread about the MSc.Pl program at UofT. Saw someone post an acceptance this morning on the results page. Anyone else hear any news? I contacted Marija in mid February and this year she said they received over 200 applicants for approximately 30 spots. I applied on February 1 and haven't heard anything FYI.
  8. Hi gang! Never too early I guess to start the application process!! Planning is in our nature, after all Thought I would start this thread so that we would all be able to connect. These are the schools I am considering: San Jose State University University of California Irvine University of Hawaii Manoa Cal Poly San Luis Obispo Cal Poly Pomona University of Colorado Denver Rutgers University - New Brunswick University College London A little bit about me: California native who attended undergrad at CU Boulder for Environmental Studies, co
  9. Hi fellow applicants, I am sad to say I have been rejected from all 11 programs I have applied to this cycle. However, life must goes on! I do plan to reapply, but I've got a few different options to choose from. Reapply to Ph.D. programs this year for F18 -- this is what I am leaning towards Post-pone reapplying and complete a M.A. in a related field where I currently work and do research, then reapply with my masters Accept a partially funded M.A. at one of the schools I applied, but it would be extremely expensive and I would have to relocate Although I appreciat
  10. Hi All, I find myself paralyzed by the prospect of selecting a graduate program before even applying to a single program! Crazy, I know! Nevertheless, I'd greatly appreciate strategies, wisdom, or anecdotes from anyone who has considered planning for a masters and a doctorate. Thank you so much! Some context -- For the last couple years, I have planned to go for a MPH in environmental health, followed immediately by a PhD in medical anthropology. I decided on that order, hoping the MPH would buy my some time to explore other PhD tracks, and give me a stronger skillset and more refine
  11. I have been accepting to two programs (my first choice rejected me) which are very different and I am having a very difficult time deciding which is the best choice. Simon Fraser and Calgary have both accepted me and offered me similar funding. I'll outline the main differences below..SFU - Master of Resource Management (Planning)-$6500 funding plus opportunity for SSHRC and TAship money which would entirely cover tuition and more-accredited planning program-co-op option-Focus is on environmental planning and resource management-research opportunities for pipeline benefit sharing agreements wi
  12. Has anyone heard back from NYU Wagner, University of Pennsylvania (PennDesign) or Rutgers Edward J. Bloustein School for their urban planning programs (Masters)?
  13. Hello prospective planners. I am probably heading to UO this fall and was wondering if anybody else on here got in and/or is heading there as well?
  14. Hi guys, I am an international student from Nepal and came to this website after another friend applying to grad schools highly recommended it. Nothing relevant to me was showing up when I was searching for Urban Planning in this forum so I figured I would write this post. Here's my problem, I really need to find 2 safety schools and I was hoping I could get some recommendations. I know it sounds vague but since MURP doesn't have rankings for schools I really can't tell where I'm competitive. Here's my Bio: Interest: Community Development, Social Policy, International Development
  15. I'll can also proofread and critique yours if you could please do the same for mine. Thank you!
  16. Is there anyone willing to review a first draft of an SOP for a Master's in Urban Planning? I could really use some advice to see if I am on the right track. It's only 800 words, if that helps.
