  1. There seem to be a lot of threads asking the same thing popping up lately and I figured it might make sense to make an overall guide thread and then those who feel their answers still haven’t been adequately answered can post below for an idea of what their chances are. Here is a brief rundown of factors affecting your likelihood of getting into top-tier and well respected programs. If you fall below par in any one of these factors you can bump it up by being stellar in one of the others. I'll add to this if others point out other things I've left out. School requirements: Your first s
  2. Hey I have looked around here a bit but have not seen the answer... It is a long the same lines as those asking about science recs for ASHA. I am looking at what stats class to take and want to take the easiest one to fill the requirement. I am planning on taking my pre-recs at UW Madison and am looking at Psych 210 Statistics for Psychology. Has anyone taken it? Does anyone know if ASHA will accept it? The more obvious choice is 301 Intro to Statistical Methods but the pre-rec for that is having satisfied the Quantative Reasoning A requirement and I am an adult returning student and I have no
  3. I went through the hugely popular 'Am I competitive'? Thread in Government Affairs and was wondering if it made sense to create an overall thread in this forum as well. I only noticed three very specific threads on here (linking the one I found to be slightly more general). Hopefully, I get answers and others who are asking themselves the same/similar questions get on here and find answers as well! Program: PhD in Sociology Schools Applying To: Columbia University, University of Chicago, Stanford University, University of Pennsylvania, National University of Singapore, University o
  4. All American universities publish on their websites the minimum requirements of their master programs. However, I can't find information about class restrictions for most universities, notably UCLA. Can a master student take more classes than the requirements of its program? Can students enroll in as many classes as they want? Can a student enroll in classes that do not belong to their department? For instance, can a EE student enroll in any CS classes?
  5. I'm a current Senior at a small liberal arts school and I want to earn my Master's in Secondary English Education in NY. The problem is that every program I look at includes a looong list of prerequisite "General Educational Core" courses in which I'm supposed to have credits before I apply. Here's an example from Hofstra:Artistic Expression/Humanities (3 s.h.)Communication (3 s.h.)Information Retrieval or placement exam (0-3 s.h.)Concepts in History/Social Science (3 s.h.)Language other than English (3 s.h.)Scientific Processes (3 s.h.)Mathematical Processes (3 s.h.)Literature, Analysis and W
  6. Hello, I have a question regarding word and page count guidelines. Some Statement of Purpose guidelines say to keep it under 500 words, but people on this forum have indicated that it is not necessary to strictly adhere to these restrictions. Some program websites have also gone out of their way to say it is not a strict cutoff, while others don't specify. The same applies for word/page counts on writing samples. If this is the case, what would you say the limit is? For example, for a 500 limit, is 600 too far over the threshold? 700? 800? I typically follow the rules provided, so I aut

  8. So - a few questions regarding the writing sample: should I include an abstract? Currently I am using APA style, with end notes -- keep?
  9. One of the universities that I'm applying to says that the writing sample should be 15-20 pages but no longer than 5000 words. This makes no sense because 5000 words is approximately 15 pages and most of my MA papers are still between 15-20 pages but longer than 5000 words. Should I strictly adhere to the 5000 word requirement or allow myself to submit a longer paper as long as it is within the 15-20 page limit? I emailed the department asking for a clarification about this and received no reply so I'm looking to my fellow gradcafe people for advice. That same university says that BOTH MA
  10. I'm very interested in applying to the Richard Gilder Ph.D. in Comparative Bio program through the American Museum of Natural History. I'm a recent grad from a top tier school with two majors and two minors, all in the hard sciences. I had pretty good GPA, about an A- average but just about an A average for my major GPA. 3.5 years of research experience. A presentation at a big conference and a publication pending (I'm like 4th author but it's still cool). I literally just took the GRE today and got a 153V and 160Q. I'm usually a super good test taker, like I got in the 99th percentile the one
  11. Hi guys, I need some advice. I'm applying to grad school for Speech-Language Pathology in the fall. I got a 1020 on the GRE, my GPA is a 3.37 but I have made the Dean's List the past two semesters. I was a TA for a teacher in the field, and also am involved in research with two other professors. I am involved with a new club at my school, Operation Smile and have a leadership position. I also have a minor, Human Development and Family Studies. Please let me know what you think regarding graduate school. Taking time off to higher my GPA isn't really an option; I need to get started right away.
