  1. Hello everyone, I want to email professors for Ph.D. programs but I have various concerns. First of all, I am a foreign student and not a USA citizen. My BA is in English Language Education and I graduated as the valedictorian (GPA; 3.74, from a no-name university). I am doing my master's in Foreign Language education, and I am also working as a full-time research assistant at a state university. I have only 1 research article published, 3 oral presentations (+1 seminar speaker), 1 Springer book chapter (accepted), and 2 submitted articles. I have experience as a reviewer, one is in a Q3
  2. I'm not sure which program to decide on as they both seem to be great programs on paper. The draw of UCB is that it is a 1 year program, but I don't think they touch on the fundamentals as much as an MS degree would. If anyone has any insight, it would be very helpful!
  3. Hi all, I started this topic for Stanford Design Impact program. I submitted my application before Dec 1, but still haven't heard anything yet, I saw someone got an interview already.
  4. May I ask how would everyone compare Berkeley and Stanford in terms of their programs in computational geomechanics? I have been admitted to both MS programs but applied to both for a PhD program at first. Since I am working towards a PhD degree, which one will offer more research opportunities and be more suitable to acquire such trainings? Also, what will the chances of getting into a PhD program after graduating from these two programs (either stay at the same uni or apply to another one)? Many thanks in advance!
  5. Hello, all. I was recently placed on the Stanford STEP waitlist for teaching secondary English. Does anyone know likelihood of me being accepted? I was looking over past years on GradCafe about the subject, but there weren't many questions or answers. Please let me know if you have any information at all; it is much appreciated!
  6. I was just wondering, if an applicant is invited to interview, what are some "Dont's" that could cost them admission? If someone answers all of the questions and articulates their research and interests clearly... it seems like a no brainer right?
  7. The website says decisions will be published late february, however a lot of people have already been accepted on the 4th. So if you were not called for an interviews you have no chances basically?
  8. Relative to the other Biosciences Programs, is it true that Genetics is the most / one of the more competitive programs in Biosciences?
  9. I heard that Stanford Biosciences is more competitive (acceptance rate wise) than its peer institutions, e.g. MIT Biology, Harvard Integrated Life Sciences (HILS), UCSF, GSK. Why so?
  10. Hi, first of all pardon me for anypresumptuous remarks. I am trying to understand the process for graduate school admission. Will an undergraduate student be in disadvantage with above-average/good (not extraordinary) credentials to get into Caltech, MIT, or Stanford for Grad school, if he/she completes Bachelor's from a school that's Top<10 in aerospace-ranking(usnews) for Undergraduate and Graduate, but a Top<=30 in overall-engineering graduate school ranking, and 110 in National College ranking by UsNews? I know that a high GPA, an internship/research experience here and there
  11. Hello everyone, I've heard back from most programs I have applied to and have been given around one month to make final decisions. I'm an American-European dual citizen and have lived in Germany, France and the United States (and am fluent in those languages). I was admitted to 1) one-year program in Russian, East European and Eurasian studies at Stanford University without any funding. I'll get FAFSA and have another scholarship that will pay around ~10,000$. Pros: name recognition (!), small cohort (~5-7), very interesting classes and great professors, chance to learn more
  12. Hi all, I don’t have an admit for Stanford’s MS CS yet — but it’s perhaps the only programme that would make me second guess accepting UIUC’s MS CS. Can you guys help me make the decision early? I’m certainly leaning towards UIUC, and I might decide later on to potentially move to a PhD. Tuition is not an issue for either. UIUC Interesting research topic lined up — could potentially start early? The Midwest is cheaper Seems to be more straightforward to enter PhD? Stanford Name recognition Cheers!
  13. Hey everyone! So I was accepted to Stanford's Aero/Astro MS program which was really exciting news two months ago. Since then it's been a constant struggle of looking for funding from the department, getting more stressful by the day! I actively pursued a couple backup universities, and have full funding for my degrees at University of Arizona (PhD), Tucson, and Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University (MS), FL. I really want to go to Stanford though, but the more that I read about it, the more it seems that it's not worth getting into so much debt to go there for a Master's degree. It's all
  14. I am an international applicant (Indian). Mechanical engineering undergrad and I wanna apply for aerospace engineering masters. I have solid research experience. I am working on a journal paper. But I will not know anything regarding acceptance/rejection before the application deadlines. Which means I probably can't fill it in my application. My GPA is 8.53/10.0. I am in the top 20 of my class of 132. And an institute academic merit scholar. (i.e. full scholarship based on academic performance) Test scores: GRE general test 330/340 (164q (87th percentile); 166v (98th percentile)
  15. Hi, I am pursuing my CSE UG (sophomore year) from one of the top 3 IITs in India. I would like to do my graduation in a top CS program, preferably in US. Can you please guide me to what should I do build my profile so that I get into one?
  16. Hi all, I'm applying to PhD programs for entrance Fall 2020. I'm in the process of narrowing down which programs best suit my research interests, but even after viewing faculty research profiles and general descriptions, I'm having trouble parsing the finer details of each choice from this readily available info, such as, what's it like to be a student there? How strong is their research in the areas I'm interested in? Etc. My research goal has been the same for the past 20 years: to find a cure for HIV infection... or a vaccine... eventually, both. I had the idea as an undergr
  17. I am extremely grateful to be accepted into both these schools, however, I now need to make a decision! I need to choose between the MA in Teaching of English at TC Columbia, or the STEP program with a focus in Teaching of English at the Stanford GSE. Both programs are one year in length - with Stanford beginning this Summer, and TC beginning this Fall. I am a qualified teacher from Australia. The STEP program will provide me with a teaching credential in California, whereas the MA from TC is non cert. At this stage, I am undecided about what I will do after I complete the one year progr
  18. I have applied to 2019 philosophy MA in Stanford and it has been radio silence since then. My application status is always 'submitted', making me wonder is there even an 'under review' status? I have checked past results posted on this site, the only information I get is that in 2016 someone recieved their MA offer on May 4th and someone else said Stanford forgot to send the rejection letter. I am really anxious since this is my first choice and I have turned down Tufts(and any other funded masters) before April 15th. Anyone heard form Stanford's philosophy MA now? Anyone knows whether
  19. Hi everyone!! Recently I have been admitted to the Stat MS program at Stanford & U Chicago and am struggling. I will try to advance to PhD after MS, but I don't know which school will offer me a better chance? I heard that Chicago has a good PhD prep and many research opportunities. I am not sure how Stanford is. But Stanford Stat ranks higher than U Chicago... Chicago Pros: - Tuition reduction (25%) - Good preparation for PhD - More research opportunity Cons: - Not as well-known as Stanford - Location is not as good.
  20. I am planning to apply to Stanford's Earth System Science for PhD program next year. I am an international student but, I received both my Bachelor and Master degrees from the United States. My undergrad college was a small college from Midwest but, relatively well known. I did my Master at the OSU. My GPA was below 3 during undergrad due to medical conditions I was going through. I took 2 years off after graduation and worked as lab technician for those years. I worked my butt off during Master degree and finished it with GPA 3.95. I will have four 2 peer review papers as first author and 2 e

  22. I am preparing to apply to Stanford's Bio sciences and Earth System Science for PhD program. Did people who got admitted talk to the professors first before they submitted the applications? They must get dozens of emails from desperate students every day. Do Stanford professors even respond to the emails even when the candidate has the possibility of getting in ? Do they wait the admission committee sieve the applicants first and talk to those who get shortlisted or admitted? Let me know if anyone of you have luck getting response back from Stanford professors?
  23. Hi guys, this is my first ever post, so I hope to not be doing anything wrong. I am a mechanical engineering undergraduate student from Brazil, and will be applying for graduate school in the US and in Canada for fall 2020 admission. Since the admission process is fairly different from what is done here in my country, I'm not familiar with the credentials that are considered to be good or bad for top schools (I do know, however, that the competition is fierce and sometimes even the best students don't get in), so any advice will be helpful. Here is a brief overview of my CV: Major: Mecha
  24. Hi guys. I'm just curious. Did anyone applying to Masters in EE Stanford get interviewed yet?
