  1. I have PhD offers from Princeton, Maryland, Penn State, and UC Santa Barbara. I feel blessed to have the offers I do, but I have no idea how I am going to decide between them. Help!
  2. Hello, I would appreciate thoughts regarding graduate school decisions/comments from people in the same boat. Interested in environmental policy and potentially private sector consulting or NGO work. Accepted to: George Washington University - Environmental Resource Policy, Trachtenberg School ($10k/year fellowship) Still waiting on a decision from UCSB Bren MESM. Obviously this could all be for nothing depending on decision from Bren, but going into this process I regarded UCSB Bren as my #1 choice due to program respect in the environmental field, location (Santa Barbara sounds nice), etc. However, now that I have received word from GW I'm beginning to like the idea of being in DC and the plethora of internship opportunities, etc. For environmental policy I believe this is potentially more important than program rank necessarily. Also, the GW ENRP program allows for all classes to be done in the evening allowing for full-time and part-time internships during the semester. (EPA, DOE, EDF, NRDC, etc all having offices in D.C. along with pretty much every other environmental NGO). All of that being said, UCSB Bren is consistently ranked as the top or a top 3 program for environmental management. Anyone else with knowledge or experience in environmental sustainability policy have thoughts? I don't necessarily want to stay in DC long term and would actually prefer Southern California as a career location, BUT I feel like the connections I could form in DC could carry anywhere. I would appreciate any thoughts/advice
  3. I've gotten into the schools mentioned above for chemical engineering PhD (leaning bio centered research) and would appreciate input regarding all of your opinions on these schools (if you've gone there, applied, heard anything etc.) At this point my ultimate goal is to head toward academia though this largely could change depending on how the PhD process ends up going. I know the ranking changes every year (if anyone has an updated list of top 20 I would appreciate it) but I believe santa barbara is around 7, delaware 10, michigan 12, and boulder around 17. Since these are all top 20, is there a large significance between say santa barbara and boulder? There are a few teachers in each schools department which interest me, and I assume I will have a better idea after visiting, regardless I appreciate any input!
  4. I've gotten into the schools mentioned above (UMichigan, CU Boulder, U Delaware, UC Santa Barbara) for engineering PhD and would appreciate input about living (cost, quality of life, socialness, parking) from anyone who has attended these schools. Any input helps! Thanks
  5. Hi there, friends! I'm currently juggling between offers and can't help but begin to feel worried about stipend amounts between schools. They are incredibly low, even in California schools where the cost of living is quite high. A few examples can be found in any UC school, where a stipend of about $17,000 or $18,000 per nine months is expected to be enough. Of course, summer work is almost guaranteed...but is this possible? I'm the most frugal person I know and spend money only on necessities, but even so, I'm worried about this. I currently live on the east coast, so moving expenses would have to be taken into account. Does anyone have any suggestions or first-hand experience with these dilemmas?
