  1. Hello there 🙂, I'm seeking to apply for Computer Science PhD next fall. Here are the list of questions that I have : Does it matter if I have research experience on a different topic than what I'm interested in? I am interested in ML/NLP but most of my experience was done on cloud computing I have written multiple research papers but most were from individual studies. Only one is currently being reviewed for publication, I am unsure whether if it will get published tbh. Does my non-published papers matter and is it a good idea to list them on my CV?
  2. Hello, I have an interview with Mercy College next week for the graduate program in Communication and disorders. Did anyone go to this interview? What type of questions do they ask? Is there a writing sample? I really hope to hear from someone soon. Thank you all!
  3. Hi, I wanted to know if anyone had their interview for the school psychology program at Queens College. How did it go? What types of questions were asked? Thank you in advance.
  4. I was invited to interview for a PhD Counseling program and just received the agenda for the two day interview. On that agenda is a time slot that says "timed writing response". I have never heard of such a thing at an interview! Has anyone ever had to do a writing prompt for their interview and if so, any insight on what the topic may be so I can practice/brainstorm? I appreciate it!
  5. Can someone please help in providing me the questions that are asked on the interview and also their answers in key points? It would be a great help!
  6. Hi ya'll I applied to several PhD programs in Cell and Molecular Biology to focus in control of gene expression. As an undergrad I researched in gene regulation, but my lab tech and summer experiences are in neurobiology. Would that affect me if I applied to Molecular Biology programs but most of my experience is from a different field (Neuro)? Thank you
  7. Hi there! I'm new to this site so hopefully I'm doing this right... I'm hoping to apply to some Directing MFA's this fall with a fall 2019 admission. It has been strongly suggested to me that I reach out to the department heads to introduce myself and ask them questions about their programs. But I'm not quite sure what I should ask other than "what is so special about your program?" Any suggestions on what type of questions are good to ask, good vocabulary to use, ways to make myself look good, etc. This is my first time applying to grad school ever, so I am really learning as I go.
  8. Hey guys! So I just had my midterm evaluation where my school supervisor came to observe some of my sessions and then she and my site supervisor came up with a list of strengths and weaknesses. My skills during the session were all rated great but I thought some of the weaknesses were a little ridiculous. For example, one weakness was that I don't ask enough questions. I have explained that this is just who I am as a person and have always been that way. I have never been someone who asks many questions. I learn by observing and then actually doing it myself. When I do have questions thou
  9. To anyone who T.A.'s, teaches, or took a gap year and taught high school in between, I have a few questions. I'm taking a gap year between my MA and my PhD and hoping to teach high school in the interim and I have my first teaching interview tomorrow. To anyone out there who knows the process -- I've interviewed for a lot of things but figure that this one will be a quite different set of questions -- what should I prepare or be prepared to answer in an interview for a job teaching AP English to high school (charter school) students? i.e., do I need to have a lesson prepared, a statement of te
  10. Hey all, Some people have told me that, before applying to PhD programs, it's a good idea to contact the faculty members with which you wish to work. I was just wondering what types of things people generally say or ask while reaching out to potential faculty. Thanks in advance!
  11. Hello everyone, I thought I would start a forum for people to ask and answer questions regarding the MIRHR graduate program at The University of Toronto for 2018. Good luck to everyone who is applying!
  12. Next week, I have to interview faculty interested in serving as either an advisor or second reader to my thesis (MA English Lit. btw). (1) What questions should I ask them to ensure that we will work well together? (2) What other advice do you have for this process? Thanks
  13. I plan on applying to LaTech University in Louisiana for its I/O psych program. I already have an M.S. in Applied Cognition and Neuroscience with more of a focus on cognitive psychology. While obtaining the I/O degree I want to focus on doing stats as I've learned that is most marketable. I have some questions hopefully someone will answer them. 1. Is LaTech a good I/O psych school? 2. What should I focus on while in school? 3. What can I do to make myself enticing to I/O programs? 4. If anybody can share their experiences of going to school for I/O psych and the work the
  14. Hi all! I wonder what questions to expect during my first interview. The specialization is the strategy field and it's a Ph.D. program. Do they usually ask such common for job interviews questions like what are your strengths and weaknesses etc? Also according to your experience/opinion, how much do they ask about your previous research?I'm freaking out about how to explain what methods I used in my dissertation and how I analyzed things. Please, be so kind to let me know what do you think. Thanks!

    Need Help?

    Hello Aspiring Art Students, I am a long time follower of this forum - it helped me immensely when I was applying to grad schools myself. I have been perusing some of these recent threads, and a lot of you seem to have many unanswered questions about how this all works - and "this" can encompass many things. I work in art academia currently, and I will be the first to admit that the grad school application process is mystifying while pertinent information is often elusive. I struggled with this exact problem during my time looking at grad schools. But having now been through the process
  16. Hi! I am new to this site and just created an account, so apologies if I am doing this wrong or posting in the wrong area! I am a rising senior and I am pretty certain that I want to do a masters program in PR and corporate communications wanted to ask if anyone with experience in or knowledge of these programs would be willing to share some insight into your graduate school admissions process. I am looking to apply for the Fall 2018 or Fall 2019 start dates and would love to go to NYU, but am still discovering all of the other top programs (any recommendations or insights into programs w
  17. Just wanted thoughts on going to graduate in state at the same university as your undergraduate degree versus out of state (A LOT MORE EXPENSIVE). I've gotten some offers out of state at really good schools, but is it worth expensive tuition? I know that for my degree, it's only five semester. Three of those will be out of state tuition while the last two will be in state tuition.
  18. Hey all, I am having a little bit of difficulty thinking of questions to ask faculty members that I will be interviewing with that are NOT my POI. Specifically, as part of the application process, I have to be interviewed by other faculty members. I have ZERO CLUE what to ask... Any help would be greatly appreciated. P.S. If you have any good questions to ask in general, feel free to throw those my way too!
  19. Hi everyone! I'm new to thegradcafe.com but I desperately need some advice, guidance, ideas, etc. I'm really torn as to what my next move is academically and life-wise. I will be graduating in the spring of 2017 with an overall GPA of 3.2, my degree will be a BA in Political Science with a French minor. I want to go on to get an MA & PhD. The two fields I am leaning towards are History and English/Writing. Clearly I don't have a high enough GPA to get into an upper-level school, so to speak. However, I really want to get my PhD from a top 20 school. My GRE scores were: 148 quant, 162
  20. Hi everyone! I was just accepted for two different online Speech Pathology Post Bacc Programs: SUNY New Paltz and Idaho State University. I am very conflicted in my decision because both offer a different amount of courses. New Paltz offers 9 and ISU offers 15 (3 labs). I wanted to see if anyone has any feedback on these programs or if anyone knows which I should be leaning towards. I need to get a great GPA to be able to get into a master program, so I don't know if I want to overwhelm myself with the 15 classes, but then again, will I be able to apply to all schools later on with
  21. A program I'm considering sent the email addresses of current MS students who agreed to answer questions. What should I ask them? So far I've considered: Program preparedness for PhD vs. job market Degree of mentorship for thesis/final project Living situation in neighborhood by University
  22. So the title says it all.... what sort of questions are important to ask? I have a list I've compiled of my own questions (maybe 15-20 in total), but I want to make sure I'm not missing anything and am wholly prepared for this event. What sorts of experiences have you had? Any essential questions?
  23. Hi everyone, I will be applying next fall and will be visiting open houses and taking tours of about 20 schools this summer. A handful of which will be next week during spring break. Do you have any advice on what questions to ask them while I'm there? I'm the only one who's ever gone to college in my family and I applied blind to my undergraduate school so I'm unsure of what to ask to get the most information in such a short amount of time. I really appreciate any help you can give! (:
  24. Hi, All!! Looking for a little help here. This decision to apply came on me like a whirlwind, but I jumped in and caught the tailwinds of a new path. I have always known that I wanted to help people and I thought I wanted to pull people from the river on the micro level, but now I know I want to work through the world through the Micro, Mezzo, and Macro. I never thought that I would have this chance, even in my wildest dreams, that any of my experiences would bring me to a point where I could possibly affect change on a greater level. That low expectation was shattered the day I hea
  25. I have seen people post that they have received 'unofficial acceptances' from their POI, often after an interview. For anyone who has received an unofficial acceptance, does this literally mean that the POI told you that you're in, but that official paperwork is to follow? Both of my advisors have told me that the admissions committee and the program director with which I interviewed are not *allowed* to give unofficial acceptances (although my advisors are only speaking from their own experiences in/with other schools). I had a phone interview with my dream program's director, and I have s
