  1. Hey everyone, I applied to 3 schools last fall (UNC Chapel Hill, University of Washington, and University of Kansas) for OChem and was rejected from all 3. I graduated with dual degrees in Chem/Bio + a minor in math. My overall GPA was a 3.3 and chem GPA was 3.5. My transcript has a large upward trend as a result of a late ADHD diagnosis that resulted in proper medication midway through undergrad. I have 1.5 years of research experience and am first author on a procedural paper for org. syn. I want to reapply to more schools, but now that we're quarantined I'm not sure how to build
  2. Hi everyone, I am currently in a rut thinking about my options for the Fall (as I am sure many of you are). If anyone has any advice regarding this, I would really appreciate hearing it. I have been accepted to these schools and programs, with the following financial aid funding per year: - CMU Heinz, MSPPM (50%, ~$24k) - Chicago Harris, MPP ($20k) - Johns Hopkins SAIS, MA IDEV (no funding) - GWU Trachtenberg, MPA ($20k) -American SPA, MPA ($10k) I have also been accepted for a Taiwan Fulbright ETA for the next year, so I am leaning toward either deferring a
  3. I am reapplying for grad programs for summer and fall 2018. I graduated with my bachelors in fall 2017 and recently was forced to leave a graduate program because of my grades. Would my chances of reapplying be damaged or hindered if it mentioned that I was at another school? I'm asking because I'm having little luck in finding someone to write me a letter of recommendation and my options may have to be with the professors and supervisors I worked with in the last graduate program. I'm afraid it would lead to schools viewing me as an unsuitable candidate, but I think I had a good relation
  4. I have my bachelor's degree in Spanish and speech pathology (double major). I was accepted to grad school for slp, and I attended a year, however, I was going through a really difficult period in my life and I ended up not being able to continue in the program because after re-taking a class, I got a C. I know that I was completely unfocused, and if I could take it all back and start it over, of course I would. I then took some special education classes after that, and did a semester of student teaching, which stands as an Incomplete on my transcript. I did fine in my teaching and I had all m
  5. Hi Everyone, It looks like I will be reapplying to graduate schools next year. Some of the feedback I have gotten from my letter writers is that I may want to try to apply to less top tier programs next time, but I was wondering what is the best way to determine what schools are middle tier or safety schools? Smaller, less well-known schools looked like they typically (not always) had less promised funding for Ph.D. students, which is why I didn't apply to some of the smaller programs for F17. Does anyone has any tips for figuring out safer bets when it comes to reapplying? Do you n
  6. 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
  7. Greetings from Turkey,I got a fully funded PhD offer from Illinois Institute of Technology on last April. I applied for an F1 visa to enroll in for Fall 2016 semester. Even though I got an approval on my interview, my application status remained under administrative processing for almost six months. I had to defer my admission twice, regardless of my efforts and the university's efforts to contact the embassy several times, since they were extremely indifferent and unhelpful. At the end I got really upset and sent the embassy a veeeeery long e-mail that contained literal sentences like "I can'
  8. I was hoping to reapply for PhD at a university I had already applied to before, but under a different professor. Does this impact my chances of getting in? Further, will the admission committee look at my old application materials?
  9. Hi everyone! I was accepted to a couple neuroscience PhD programs last year, but, due to a confluence of personal and professional circumstances, I opted to stay at my job and reapply in the fall. Though it's a daunting task to undertake a second time by choice, I am happy with my decision. I got into 2/5 schools last time -- not a bad record certainly -- though I hope to do even better this time around. I will probably reapply to at least 2 of the programs that rejected me (the list is still a work in progress), and one program let me defer without committing, so I still have one acceptance
  10. Hello, everyone ! I graduated from university with my Bachelor's Degree in Biotechnology. My GPA was a 3.91, and my GRE score was 308 with 3.0 in awa section;IELTS:6.5. I have great recommendations and have completed 3 research internships Here is the thing, I applied to 10 PhD programs last year, only interviewed at one, and was not given a spot at any of them. Which leads me to the next question, what did I do wrong? should I just stop applying and apply for my masters first? I don't want to disappoint anyone again with another round of rejections. Please tell me what to do nexttttt !!
  11. So I applied to a bunch of schools and had one interview, was on one wait list, and got a bunch of thank you for your time however, you're not good enough to go here. So that being said I'm looking to apply for the winter semester. I know eastern Michigan as well as grand valley state university admit twice a year. Are there any other schools that offer admission twice a year?
  12. Hi, guys! I am a first year(2011 fall) phd student in biochem. I am thinking about reapplying to another PhD program(2013 fall). Is that "transfer"? It's a long story. I was in a biology undergraduate program and my background is very "biology". But the biochem program I am in now is very "chemistry". Many PIs in the program work on material science, analytical chemistry or physical chem. My interest is molecular and cellular research in human diseases like cancer. The reason I chose my current program is that I thought maybe I could try something different from what I used to do. But t
  13. Hi everyone--- I've been lurking around this forum forever, and after a horrific round of universal rejections (my first attempt), I've wallowed for a week, and am now ready to look forward to next year. I wanted to start a thread where others can join in the momentum of Fall 2013 applications, with ideas of what they can do differently next year. For my next round of applications, I want to... ...improve GRE scores and take the subject test ...focus my SOP more on fit, focus, future ...make a note in my SOP as to my less-than-great undergrad GPA (I worked full-time in college)
  14. I was waitlisted in 2009 at UCLA, and after 2 years of work, I'm reapplying this year. This time i feel more confident as I've improved significantly my application. I'm applying to UCSD and UCSB as well. I informed my recommender that I was waitlisted at UCLA but it seems in the letters he wrote I was waitlisted at UCSB. Do colleges keep record of who all was waitlisted 2 years back ? my question is how is it going to play out ? how to correct this error ? Would it affect my chances ? Should i call university and confirm it ? please suggest. i'm very stressed out.
