sonriej posted a topic in Decisions, DecisionsI got accepted to the master program of Latin American Studies of the universities mentioned the one of Uchicago is a one year program and gave 1/3 fee waiver. NYU with no funding at all, 1.5 years UCSD basically the same, 2 years Tulane, 2 years, full fellowship for the first year and possibly continues to the second year really not sure about which to go, they all seem to be good schools. I was not a native English speaker and am afraid that studying in Uchi may be too stressful. NYU is also good and seems to have better reputation than tulane, but too expensive. never been to NOLA, could be a fun and brand new place for my experience so if anyone can give suggestions and help me make a decision?
Anyone on here applying to Tulane for Anthropology or Linguistics this year? I've applied to both Anthropology (cultural) and EEB for PhDs, and my partner applied for Anthropology (linguistic) and Linguistics. Tulane is our top choice, so I'm super nervous about getting in/getting funding! My GPA is okay (3.35 for unofficial transcript, probably gonna be 3.5 by final transcript - it's mostly my freshman year weighing me down), as are my GRE scores (QU: 150, QA: 160, W: 4.5), but I've got 2 major research projects, 2 internships, a small business (unrelated to the field of study), and even kinda-sorta a published paper under my belt! Plus my statement of purpose was good (I hope), and my LORs were amazing, or at least my professors thought highly of me... My POI showed significant interest (I think, he seemed to like my research ideas, interests, and what not, but just kept encouraging me to apply), as did my partner's, but I just don't know if I can make the cut! I just wanna know! It's hard enough hoping for your own spot, but I'm riding on my partner getting in too!!! Anyone else super stressed?
PHDsciences posted a topic in Decisions, DecisionsHey all, I'm trying to decide between enrolling in Tulane's Biomedical Sciences program and UMD - Baltimore's Molecular Medicine program for Fall 2016. I would like to focus on cancer genetics, but realize that people do switch their focus once beginning these programs. I liked the professors more at Tulane and was more interested in their research, but UMD is ranked higher. Do school rankings matter much in research? If anyone has any insight into either of these two programs, any advice would be welcome. Thanks
