  1. I am looking to start this thread giving insight on which American universities that offer a PhD program in Sociology "guarantee" full funding and the degrees of this concept of full funding through the firsthand experience of current PhD students. I encourage to you, whether applicant, student or PhD holder in Sociology to add your thoughts, experiences and feedback on this issue. I believe this can be beneficial to all of us because I may even venture to conspire that there may be correlation with the college's policy and/or the situation of each Sociology of department.
  2. I'm a math and statistics major that is highly interested in probability theory, but I've had difficulty finding universities that are strong in probability theory that I would like to apply to. This can probably be explained by probabilists seemingly being dispersed across different departments such as mathematics, statistics, OR, etc. For example, I come from a university where the statistics department is much stronger in probability than the mathematics department. I was hoping for suggestions on PhD programs to look into - I'm more concerned about the professors and research groups t
  3. Hey guys! Like I mentioned in the "Masters Applicants for Fall 2018" thread in Waiting It Out Forum, I have created a thread for BME/Bioengineering people! Even though I have not received all the results back from schools, I probably should start researching into the schools I got accepted to make a wise decision! This thread is to share and exchange information about BME/Bioengineering programs of different schools. I will try my best to gather information about schools, using all my resources (internet, friends, visiting campus) and update this thread. And... I would greatl
  4. Hi all! I'm hoping to get some help here. I'm a first year masters student and I've begun looking into PhD programs to apply once I graduate. I know this might be somewhat early seeing as I'm not even close to finishing my degree yet, but I know that I'll have to apply by this time next year, so I might as well get a head start! My area of interest is 20th century American literature with an emphasis in feminist and ecocriticial analysis. I'm really interested/specialty in archival work. I've worked closely with texts that have been "forgotten" especially those written by wom
  5. Hi! I'm interested in going into biotech/pharmaceuticals after I complete my PhD. I am currently looking into schools that might offer better resources or better networking for industry. Are there any that have particularly good relationships with industry and/or offer amazing support and resources? Currently, I attend UC San Diego and I understand that they have a decent relationship with the San Diego biotech community. Thanks!
  6. The individuals I'm very interested in working with for PhD research all accept new students under a variety of programs. I'm torn between a few general categories, primarily because I'm concerned about differences in competitiveness and qualifications for these programs. The options are something like ecology/evolutionary biology, and more biomedical science programs like molecular/cellular biology. My background is more molecular intensive, but I haven't taken as many chemistry courses as I'm sure others applying to those programs will. Do you think this would be an issue, or am I overthinki
  7. I am trying to decide between which two Biotechnology programs to attend in the fall. The first program is the NYU Biotechnology and Entrepreneurship Program which is great because of its interdisciplinary curriculum in both biotechnology and business. They also offerered me a generous scholarship. On visiting the campus and speaking with faculty it seems promising. I was selected for an additional scholarship and feel like the financial aid office is forthcoming with working with me to cover tuition costs. The research areas are good with opportunities to do research at the renowned memorial
  8. Hi! I'm new to this forum but have a question about what my options might be for postgraduate studies in counseling psychology. Here's a bit of a background: I'll graduate in May 2019 from Penn State with bachelor's degrees in journalism and psychology with likely around a 3.7 GPA, and I've spent most of my undergraduate career stuck between those two degrees (essentially debating whether I wanted to go to graduate school for psychology or enter into a communications-related job right out of school). For that reason, most of the extracurricular activities/work experience I've had has been in t
  9. Hi, everyone! I am currently a third year undergraduate student majoring in neuroscience who plans on going to graduate school and getting my PhD when I finish my undergraduate education. I have been looking at schools and different programs, but am having trouble picking which ones would be best for me. I know that I like research, but part of my problem is that my research interests are very broad. I believe that I am most interested in differences in behavior and the biological reasons/mechanisms behind these behaviors. I have mostly considered getting my PhD in either neuros
  10. Anyone know anything about the MSt? Good bridge to PhD programs or not? Perception within the field? Thanks.
  11. I figured I'd go ahead and start this thread. I know it's a bit early, but who's ready? This will be my second cycle. I was rejected from four schools this past cycle, but according to one of my favorite songs, "You've got to lose to know how to win" (Aerosmith /\A/\). I know what I need to do this time around. I'm ready. Were you rejected this year? Or will this be your first time? What schools are you considering? Good luck everyone. A year from right now (2/24/17) we will have good news to share with each other.
  12. Some history grad programs list recent years' PhD graduates and what jobs they've ended up in. Is there an easier way to find out which history graduate programs have the best tenure-track job placement rates? Any sort of list or database that compiles this information?
  13. I'm very interested in machine learning and its application to the healthcare/medical field. I am also interested in the Robotics program at Hopkins because of its wide array of machine learning research in the medical field. They research a large number of things like medical imaging, uses machine learning for surgical robots, analyzing EMR data, etc. Does anyone know of other universities that have similar medical focus? The ranking is not important. I am just looking for a little bit of a curriculum overlap here and there. Thank you!
  14. This might be a really dumb question, but I was still wondering. I just really want to know if my SOP reflects a fit for that particular program (Sociology). And I was thinking of emailing the listed contact reference for graduate applications (not some random professor I mean lol) - so then it wouldn't be completely inappropriate right? What do you guys think? Thanks!
  15. I'm looking for grad programs that are a mix of art/design (particularly animation) and CS but mainly focused on research – does anyone have any suggestions? A perfect example would be something like Texas A&M's MS-Viz Curriculum. Help would be greatly appreciated.
  16. Hi! I am in serious need of help! I am currently a senior Psychology and Sociology major with no research experience other than the courses that I have taken in school. I switched my major to Psychology during the second half of my junior year. I wasn't able to acquire a seat in my school's psychology labs. I tried applying to summer undergraduate research programs, but I was either not eligible for the programs, or I was rejected. It may be too late, but does anyone know of psychology summer research programs that take graduating seniors? Any help will be much appreciated!
  17. Hi Everyone! I was just wondering if anyone has gotten into University of Wisconsin—Madison, University of Wisconsin- Eau Claire, or the U of M? These are the three midwest programs I applied too. I have gotten into a few in California, but haven't heard back from the midwest schools. Thanks! Best of luck to everyone! Lele
  18. Hello everyone! I submitted my application through CSDCAS last month, and am now trying to get more info on the programs I applied to. I was limited to the Chicago area because of my husband's job, so I applied to: -Governors State U -St. Xavier U -Midwestern U -Northwestern U -Rush U -Elmhurst College I missed the open houses for St. Xavier, Rush, Midwestern, and Elmhurst (all due to scheduling conflicts with work, unfortunately), so I would love to hear people's thoughts on the SLP programs at these schools if you have either visited or applied and wer
  19. Hi there, I recently found out I got accepted into Uni. of Oregon (my alma mater), Portland State, Uni. of Minnesota Twin cities, and wait-listed by UW seattle (Medical SLP). Definitely not going to Minnesota (too cold and too expensive) and I don't think there's much chance for me to have someone's spot at UW so my decision will likely be made between UO and PSU. I want to focus more on dysphagia and medical SLP so my concern with UO is the location where there are not too many medical facilities I know of that provide related services for practicum. PSU is right in the middle of Portl
  20. We all know how expensive architectural software is and the mandatory demands for our studies. Even if we use the educational version of these software, it's still not enough with the limitations it gives us. Well, look no further. If anyone is in need for a specific software for their PC to use for their studies (architecture), please contact me for an affordable installation. I provide installation of the latest adobe and autodesk, etc.software and training videos at a affordable price. 5616678837.
  21. So we've all applied and little debates about which programs are best for types of research methods or theory or culture have popped up on other threads. I am interested in what everyone is looking to study and what programs they view as being the best fit for their research interests. It'll be a better place for the back and forth too since now we can get some nuanced opinions from what others see as programs strengths/weaknesses that we didn't see (so if I applied to one or didn't apply to one that you think//know would have been a stronger fit...). Given that sociology is such a diverse
  22. Application season was horrible for me, so I'm not really expecting an acceptance. While waiting for results, I'm contemplating what to do if rejection is my future. Would a gap year be good? Or should I consider a Masters programs? Are there any funded English Masters programs? Post-Baccs? Any programs/jobs/internships that would be good to consider while waiting for the next round of applications for the English phD? I'm feeling discouraged, but hoping that other opportunities might actually allow for a better application next go round.
  23. I graduated a couple of years ago and have been working as a data analyst at a fortune 500 company. I want to go back and get my master's in Statistics while still working. I figured online was the best avenue to do that. My goal is to become a data statistician, forecaster, or data scientist for a company. While in undergrad, I did various forms of academic research from theoretical ecology, to biochemistry, to mathematical biology. My work in mathematical biology has resulted in three published papers. Undergrad: University of Nebraska Omaha Major: Mathematics and Biolog
  24. Hello, I will be applying for a sociology program in the fall of 2017; however, I've been really concerned about my gpa. My undergraduate gpa is very low 2.8 and my masters gpa is a 3.6 but will increase to 3.8 by graduation. I am interested in the following schools: UC Santa Barbara UC Davis UC Irvine Columbia CUNY Rutgers George Mason University/American University (last option) I have several publications and conference presentations. I've been listed in a top journal and have outstanding letters of recommendation. Do you think the gpa will
  25. Hi, all, I am finishing my MFA in Creative Writing this year and would like to start a Ph.D program in English in Fall 2017. Here's a little background info: I graduated with a 3.9 GPA in History from Florida State with a minor in English in 2009. As an undergraduate, I wrote an honors thesis in my field. After working a few years as an English tutor online, I decided to pursue an MFA at Eastern Oregon University, where I'm specializing in creative nonfiction. My ultimate goal is to write and teach. However, though an MFA is considered a terminal degree, I feel it is necessary for me to h
