Hi all! I could really use some help. I am working towards my BS/MS in Biomedical Engineering, thesis option. I want to pursue my PhD in MSE with a focus on biomaterials, particularly for diagnostics, biomimetics, and drug delivery. GPA: 3.55 (not great) GRE: 161V, 163Q Research: 2 publications (1 first author, 1 2nd), 3 conference presentations, 3 years research at Tier-1 research institution, summer internship at top international uni I will be applying to: University of Minnesota, U of Wisconsin, Boston University, Oregon State, UC Riverside, and maybe Washington State I am hoping to add 1 or 2 safety schools to this list, as I feel I am shooting above where I can realistically get in. I have no problem finding research I am interested in, but I don't know how to tell if I have a decent chance at admission. Also, is there any way to determine likelihood of full funding? I have heard many horror stories lately.
I've been applying to schools for fall 2018 admission into statistics master's programs with a focus on environmental statistics. I've nearly decided all the schools I will apply to but am trying to add one more. I've tried to apply to a bunch of schools across the spectrum of program rankings and was wondering if anyone could help me decide if I should add one more safety program or a more middle of the pack program given my profile and schools I've applied to. GRE: 162 quant, 162 verbal, 5 writing GPA: 3.30/4.0 Undergrad majors in economics and statistics Schools I've applied to: Berkeley Oregon State UC Davis UCLA U Michigan Colorado State Considering: U Washington, U Chicago, U Colorado Denver, another safety school?
I got accepted to the industrial engineering M.S. programs at both Stevens Institute of Technology (SIT) and Rutgers University (RU), New Brunswick and I am looking to move to be near one of these school. (I assume that most classes at RU would take place at the Busch Campus in Piscataway.) I want to stay off-campus in a surrounding neighborhood, hopefully within 3 miles of campus. If I have to go by neighborhoods alone, which universities would offer better personal and home safety? I am not looking for the cheapest suggestion, as I am willing to pay a bit more for the comfort of safety, or the perceived better safety... I am always vigilant anyway. I will have a car, too. Not sure if house/car break & enter is more prominent some of these neighborhoods over the others?
Should I bother applying to NYU, Icahn School of Medicine, University of Washington, and Yale Neuroscience Phd programs...My reasoning for not is that I could use time/resources on lower tier schools. I have an undergrad GPA of 3.59(small LAC), masters neuroscience(not ranked) 3.90, and 1 year of intense electrophys research GREs kind of bad on essay, 17%. 85% on math/verbal.
