  1. Did you recently apply to graduate school? You may be eligible for a brief online study related to creative thinking in graduate school students! The study is separate from the graduate application and it is entirely voluntary. Your responses to study questions have no bearing whatsoever on admission decisions, and they will not be linked to your application to any institution. The survey takes about 30 to 45 minutes to complete. If you choose to participate, you will receive a $15 Amazon gift card. Link to the survey: https://georgetown.az1.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_6WmmkLl5HapRUpv
  2. To set the scene, I'm from a pretty much third world country, so I guess this story isn't all that surprising. I'm applying to STEM PhD programs in the US. The thing is, I had a quarrel with my research supervisor right before graduating with my MSc. As a result, I was expelled (even though I was top of my class and my thesis was ready). I can't go into details to stay anonymous. I can only tell that the lab in which I was working was beyond abusive. Afterward, I collaborated with some friends and published a couple of papers. Is that OK if I request LORs from them? They are only grad st
  3. I'm going to graduate with my BS in Aerospace Engineering next spring. Due to a variety of factors, I have decided to pursue graduate-level education, and I would like the opportunity to do it in CS, as that is where my interests have lied for roughly a little more than the second half of my bachelor's degree. I'm well aware that a transition from AE to CS is unorthodox, and I'm concerned that many good programs (both at prestigious and not so prestigious universities) will think that I'm unqualified. Does anyone who has either made the transition (or a similar one!) themselves or know so
  4. Background: I'm still waiting to hear back from a few UCs (davis and irvine) that I applied to. I've seen cases where they don't send out offers until May. I've gotten an offer of admission from another school (deadline to accept is April 15). Question: Does anyone know whether it's possible/alright to accept the offer of admission and then change my mind if I hear back positively from those UCs? It's not an ideal situation, but I don't believe accepting an offer (especially for a master's program) is legally binding... That said, I'm not too happy with how the U
  5. Hey! So I am in the process of applying to graduate school in the fall for marine biogeochemistry (chemical/biological oceanography). I had a TERRIBLE semester in my last semester of college (Dec 2017) where my GPA went from a 3.45 (3.58 with my AS degree GPA incorporated) to a 3.16 (not including my AS degree GPA). I got 3 D's (when I am a straight A/B student) mainly because I had a major death in the family, I was overwhelmed, and had a TON of serious mental stuff going on (depression, anxiety). I am SUPER stressed out about my applications at this point and don't really know what to do abo
  6. I, like many others, will be starting my PhD in the fall with the intent to get a job in industry after completion of my PhD in either bioengineering or nanoengineering. However, whenever someone asks me what type of jobs there are in industry for a STEM PhD I'm usually not entirely sure how to answer. I have this idea in my head of managing the R&D department for an innovative company or something like that. But when it comes down to it, I really don't know what jobs are actually available and if my idea of what an industry job is is actually a thing. I was wondering what type of jobs are
  7. Hi. (Apologies, this is a little lengthy) So, I'm a sophomore at Boston College double majoring in Math and Music. I am having a really hard time deciding whether or not I really should keep the math major. The math classes here at BC are really hard and even though I pass, it's always by the skin of my teeth (C range). Such has been the sake for my science classes too. I am a really bad test taker; I have really bad testing anxiety such that I'm paralyzed with stress beforehand and the stress makes me sick because it compromises my immune system. I have extended time but it doesn't matt
  8. I had a lot of trouble deciding on a PhD program (direct admission to lab in a STEM field) and thought about it until literally the last minute of April 15 (both schools part of CGS). I was totally split between two choices, which represented very different lab environments, mentorship styles, department cultures, prestige of programs, and funding opportunities. I had previously preferred option A, but was going back an forth, and switched to option B at the end. About a week out from the decision, I am still having serious regrets, anxiety, nerves, etc. and feel I may have made a wrong cho
  9. Hey everyone! We started a podcast with the goal of diving into research papers behind headline science news (kind of like our version of a journal club). We're both PhD students in engineering and we'd love to get any feedback from other grad students/researchers. http://paperboyspodcast.com Each episode also has a "grad student highlight" to shed light on the students who make this research come to life. If you'd be interested in participating, we'd love to hear from you! Thanks everyone!
  10. Sorry first time i poseted in wrong forum. I got two similar reply from Professor. Professor 1 I appreciate your interest in our research group. I would encourage you to apply to our department’s program and I will be happy discussing further with you once you are accepted. Professor 2 thanks for your note. I urge you to apply to our phd program. If you are admitted I will be very happy to discuss research possibilities. Are they indicating RA. Is this positive reply? What should I do next beside thanking them? How to start a conversat

  12. Hello, I I received an offer from a school with partial scholarship and a graduate assistantship. I asked them about the type of assistantship and the stipend, but they basically did not give me an answer. Just said that it can be either an RA or TA, 10h/w or 20h/w and the information of the amount that will be paid for assistantship is not available yet and only will be in May. I had to give them an answer in a short time, and since I did not hear back from the other schools yet I said yes. But I have no idea what I will get. This is in New York and a STEM field, but not a PhD and most o
  13. Hi, I have been admitted to CMU's MSPPM Pittsburgh track. I understand that it is a Masters in Science degree. However, I could not find any written material saying MSPPM is a STEM affiliated degree and the graduates are eligible for OPT extension. I absolutely love the program and everything it offers. But I really need to know if I will be eligible for the OPT extension post graduation. Can someone please clarify this? Thanks
  14. Is Audiology considered a STEM major? I am applying for something and it is specifically for STEM majors. Is the PhD only considered STEM maybe or does anyone know if the Au.D. counts. I am aware it is a science, but there are specific majors under this umbrella. I read a super old article saying it was not, but since the article was super SUPER old, I didn't know if someone had more updated information. It would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
  15. Hi, Can one apply for Harris School, University of Chicago, MSCAPP program scholarship through Joint Japan World Bank Scholarship (preferred list) ? Alternatively would be grateful if one could assist with STEM scholarships for international students ? Many thanks!
  16. Hi guys, I recently got admitted to the MS Biostats (Thesis track) program at University of Washington, Seattle. I tried to look up the school website for details about how successful past international students who graduate from the same program are in terms of job seeking. I did not find much. My questions are 1. Is this program a STEM program? 2. Are the most international student who graduated from this program able to find jobs in the US? What is the job placement rate? P.S. I am an international student from China. I am getting my Bachelor's degree from UCLA.
  17. I am a female applicant applying to Statistics programs. In recent years about 40% of Statistics Ph.D. recipients are female, but certain subfields (including my main interest) can be even more male-dominated. A lot of the programs I am applying to our small and due to the nature of small number statistics it is likely that five and six-person cohorts could only have one woman (especially if they aren't purposely aiming for gender diversity). I don't have anything against men, but I feel I might feel socially isolated (from other women) in an extremely male-dominated cohort. I am not
  18. This has happened to me plus the few others of fellow test takers as well as a few of my friends that are in the same boat. The social sciences backgrounders are getting three Quant sections in the GRE. I guess this has to do with the selection that you make before starting the test where you enter your intended graduate field/subfield. Similarly, those from the engineering/sciences background are getting three verbal sections. Is it safe to assume the selection of intended program you make at the start of the test makes that section choice for you? It's not a big deal to tweak the algorithm t
  19. I am a first year and am very unhappy in my current PhD program. The pay is barely above food stamps in a very expensive city, the expectations of TAs are far beyond what I have seen in other schools, I am not connecting with my cohort, and I am feeling lukewarm towards the research group I am with. I am living 45 minutes to an hour away from campus and still spending more than 50% of my income on rent. I can barely get 6 or 7 hours of sleep a night because between homework, the very long classes (classes are in two to two and half hour blocks twice a week and often run overtime,) and my exten
  20. I'm a third year Physics student at Imperial College London, who is considering applying to an Econ PhD program. I cuurently have offers for a Maters in both Theoretical Physics and Economics, and am heavily weighing up both options. I have the following questions: (i) Which Masters program would suit best for the transition? I have an offer for MSc Finance and Economics at the LSE, but I also have offers in Physics from ETH and Imperial. It seems like there could be a possibility to take Econ classes whilst purusing the Physics Masters, which is what I will do if I choose physics. Also,
  21. Hi everyone. I'm considering applying to PhD programs (specifically in Education with a STEM focus) next year. I have a Masters in CS so already have GRE scores and I have professors that would be more than happy to write me letters of recommendation. I do not, however, have any published research. This would be the weakest point of my application. My grades and references are/would be excellent, and I have an idea of what I want to research. I do not, however, have an exact thesis in mind. I more or less have a "theme" and I was somewhat hoping that my exact research topic could develop
  22. I have seen only one result on the results search. Just wondering if anyone else has heard back!
  23. Today, I took my 6th GRE in the previous 5 years... I have never been good enough, and ironically my score is going lower and lower. Today, I got V: 152, Q: 164. My verbal scores has been vacillating from 151 to 159 whereas my math has been always good. My writing has been also terrible..always 3.0 except once. Anyways, I am now so tired and thinking maybe GRE is not something for me. I have a score that is V: 151, Q: 170, AWA: 4.5. I am thinking about applying with this score. But I am not sure if it is good enough. I want to do master or PhD in Computationa
  24. I am working on my B.S. in chemistry and I am wanting to go to graduate school for some field of engineering (probably mechanical or electrical). I have already completed a minor in physics and I plan on taking extra math classes to better prepare me. I am also taking a C++ class this fall. I have two more years remaining. My current GPA is about 3.4 but I hope to raise it to around 3.6. I have research experience at my school in inorganic chemistry and astrophysics and also experience at an industrial biofuels job. How do I go about finding schools that accept applicants for a Masters o
  25. Hi everyone, I am an incoming graduate student truly excited to pursue my research interests. The school I'm going to has a great STEM program, and I was very happy about my choice. However, even though the school itself has a great program, I am very unhappy about its location, and sadly, I'm considering transferring to a different graduate program. I have a few questions about grad school transfer for nonprofessional reasons. I've looked at some posts, and it seems like personal dissatisfaction with the location is a totally valid reason to transfer to a different place. If
