    UCLA MSW 2019 Applicants

    Forum for Fall 2019 MSW Applicants to UCLA!! Post questions about the applications, stats for yourself, or notify us when you hear something from UCLA!!
  2. Hello everyone: I am trying to decide between UCLA and UCSF for a Biochemistry PhD and I would appreciate any input. Does anyone know which place has better success for academic vs industry employment and what the reputation is at both locations? Both programs have great research, advisers, and students. Thank you everyone in advance for your input!

  4. I was recently accepted into: MS Astronautical Engineering from USC MS Mechanical Engineering from Columbia MS Astronautics from Purdue MS Aerospace Engineering from UCLA These are all fully online degrees that will have no difference with the in class degrees and they will be fully funded by my employer. I am having trouble choosing between the four. I understand the program reputation and advisor/professor quality outweighs school reputation but I'm stuck on finding out how to compare those things. Which do you think would be the best of the four? I know technically Purdue is ranked the highest of them all for graduate engineering so it would make sense if it had the best course quality but it is not a huge name on the west coast. And I've also heard the Purdue is for engineers that strictly want to do engineering (not venture into business, management, consulting.) For now engineering is my plan but I don't want the other paths to be closed for me) Columbia has the Ivy league tag and is the most prestigious but I'm not sure if this applies to its graduate engineering program. USC and UCLA are basically head to head in California and between the two I'm leaning towards USC because I like the program more. USC also has an amazing alumni network in california shich would be helpful. Any suggestions?
  5. Hello! I've been accepted to UCLA and wait listed at UC Berkeley for the Masters in Social Welfare program beginning this Fall. I am over the moon but also a bit at a crossroads. It seems that near everyone I speak to have a strong lean toward UCB and I wonder how much of it is due to name recognition and prestige over the program itself or the potential fit it might be. UCB is the main reason I began to apply to graduate programs, but UCLA seems like it would potentially be a better fit. I am deadset on UCLA but am WELL aware that I might be thrown for a loop if I am offered admission to UC Berkeley. Do any social workers here have feedback on what you believe are some of the strongest points of draw backs to these programs? I see a lot of positives and honestly, not much draw back aside from not having too much formal experience conducting research. Thank you!
  6. I was recently accepted into: MS Astronautical Engineering from USC MS Mechanical Engineering from Columbia MS Astronautics from Purdue MS Aerospace Engineering from UCLA These are all fully online degrees that will have no difference with the in class degrees and they will be fully funded by my employer. I am having trouble choosing between the four to find a balance between course quality and reputation. Course quality so I actually learn something useful and reputation so it helps me look more impressive compared to other equally qualified job applicants. I will most likely stay on the West Coast if that matters. Which do you think would be the best of the four? I know technically Purdue is ranked the highest of them all for graduate engineering so it would make sense if it had the best course quality but it is not a huge name and I feel like the other 3 would be chosen over Purdue becuase of their reputation and prestige. Columbia has the Ivy league tag and is the most prestigious but I'm not sure if this applies to its graduate engineering program. USC and UCLA are basically head to head in California and between the two I'm leaning towards USC because I like the program more. Any suggestions?

    UCLA MSW Fall 2019 Decisions

    I know it's early but has anyone received a decision from UCLA MSW program?

    2019 Education Applications

    Anyone else applying to BE3 at Berkeley, or know about the quality of the program? I'm applying to Stanford STEP, UCLA TEP, and USC MAT, and trying to suss out relative strengths of each program. Berkeley's mission statement is so exciting, though the "rankings" online place it much lower than Stanford and UCLA. I don't know how much stock to put in this, if any. Had my UCLA interview last weekend, and Berkeley is next month. J

    UCLA Luskin MPP

    Anyone hear back yet? Based on last year's results, it looks like people were notified on the 27th (Monday), so was expecting to hear back today.

    UCLA BioE PhD Late Glitch

    Hey all, I applied to UCLA last week and had some weirdness happen. I submitted on Dec 1st around 9PM PST, with the deadline at 11:59 PM PST that day. After I submitted, I reopened the portal and it lists my submission date as Dec 2nd. It was listing it as Dec 2nd when it was legit still Dec 1st. I emailed the dept but no answer. Should I be nervous about this? Does it matter? A postdoc told me it wont mater since they dont look at this stuff until after break anyway, but I was wondering if anyone else had this issue.
  11. these two schools acceptance rates and other stats seem almost exactly the same, i noticed that ucla is higher in the rankings tho. For a computer science grad student, which school is harder to get into?
  12. So I'm currently applying for an MFA in film production at UCLA and in the guidelines they don't indicate anything about a personal history statement, however in the application form it seems that we are required to fill it. There are no specific guidelines given and I'm very confused as to how to approach it. I feel like it will sound like my statement of purpose...

    HGSE Fall 2019 applications

    Hi all, I've 6 years of work experience in sales and marketing consulting, and 7+ years in social space as a volunteer for educational initiatives, including leading the CSR engagements at my firm for over 4 years now. I'm now looking for opportunities to move full-time in this space, so am planning a masters in education as a first step because that's where my heart lies; I've worked in education for the last 7 years on a pro-bono/voluntary basis over and above my full-time job. GRE: VA - 154, QA - 165, AWA - 4 TOEFL: Result awaited GPA: Yet to do a WES evaluation, but I've 80.59% from Delhi University in India. Work Ex: 6 years in Sales and Marketing Consulting Pro-Bono/Voluntary experience: 7+ years in Education , including leading the CSR engagements for over 4 years now. I'm leading the engagements with a learning centre near my office, and have designed 3 programs - Math/Science remedial, Spoken English, and Career Counseling. Masters Programs I'll be applying for fall 2019: IEP/TIE at HGSE (can anyone help me figure out), IED at TC, UCB programs, SSCE at UCLA, Upenn I'm more inclined to US programs because of the job prospects, but would like to hear reviews about UCL, Oxford, and Cambridge (EU vs. US). I aim to leverage my corporate experience experience and work in international education space, either in content building, policy implementation, or school leadership. I know 3 options is a long list but will want the program to help make a better choice. My objective is to improve the overall quality of education and change the way we teach. We have been teaching the same age-old skills and curriculum which is not even relevant in the modern day. It will be great if you can help me choose programs where I can leverage my consulting/corporate skills. Anyone who has made a successful switch from corporate to education, or is planning to do so? I'm more inclined to 1 year programs. Any leads will be appreciated!
  14. Hello all, I'm new to the forum. I really want to get into the African History PhD program at UCLA. My BS and MA have nothing to do with history, and I have spent a significant amount of time staying home with my 3 children. I am familiar with the PhD life since my husband spent the majority of our marriage working on his phd in math. I would need to retake the GRE because my scores have since expired. However, my past scores were relatively high and so was my GPA. Also, the language requirements would not be such and issue as I am practically a native speaker of an African language in which I am interested and have familiarity with one other language relevant to my research interests. In addition to UCLA's wonderful reputation in this field, I am in relatively close proximity to it. I am worried because I have 3 chidren, with the oldest being 8 years old and I don't have much work experience, and am an older student. What do you think I should focus on doing to convince the faculty to accept me? Am I kidding myself? I wanted to know if anyone has any advice or thoughts for me. Thanks in advance.
  15. Hi everyone, I was recently admitted into the following MPP programs and am trying to decide which would be the best choice: Georgetown McCourt U Chicago Harris UCLA Luskin I received a $20,000 scholarship for McCourt and Harris and am specifically interested in environmental policy. Is anyone else debating between the same schools or have any recommendations?
  16. Hi! I am an undergraduate student from India, with UCLA MS and TAMU M.Eng admits. I earnestly request seniors and people who have a sound knowledge in this matter to please help me decide between the two university admits that I have shortlisted, with respect to job prospects, return on investment and possibilities of financial aid. I mainly look to work after Masters. Please don't blindly comment UCLA based on ranking. It would be of great help if you comment the reason when polling, as financial constraint is my main concern. I can afford something around 65000$ over two years, and I lead a very simple lifestyle (no expenses on parties, lavish apartments etc). Also, I have heard that i20 amount is overpriced, hence I would like to know how much does one actually end up spending (as a percentage of the university-estimated i20 amount)? Its kind of urgent, so please respond asap.Thanks in advance.
  17. Is there anyone who received UCLA cognitive psychology official letter (email) ? Have the school sent out official acceptance letters (email) for F18 Ph.D. ?
  18. Hey! So which is the better university for masters in communication theory and systems? UCLA or UCSD? TIA

    Doubt about the wait list

    I am in the waitlist for UCLA's D.env program. As I understand from the concept of waitlist, they would only accept me of one of the accepted people declines the offer. But the date for accepting/rejecting university offers is April 15, does this mean I'll hear from UCLA about my application status after April 15? And by that time I would have already accepted one of the other offers that I have received (UC Davis, Univ of Wisconsin Madison, etc.). How does this work?

    UCLA MSW Fall 2018 Applicant Cohort

    Hello! This thread is for prospective students of the Luskin School of Public Affairs Master of Social Welfare (MSW) Fall 2018 cohort. Applicants may begin to work on their application in September, so let's be prepared and support eachother through this process. I'm going to ask that we always include our stats when we report an admission decision. Even if the decision is not what you wanted, please share your stats at that time and your admission status. All of us are nervous about this and the best thing to reduce that is to be well informed. What I really hope this group can do is to remember to post their stats when they are given the admission decision, too often people just get excited and say "I got in" then bail. Here is what I suggest as stats to share, and perhaps this can be a good way to get started with introductions for the Fall 18 applicants here on Grad Cafe by filling out the stats you presently can. Best wishes to each of you, let's get through this together! - BackNSchool83 Stats Cumulative Transferrable GPA: Cumulative Transferrable GPA last 90 quarter or 60 semester: GRE: did you take it? Would you like to share your score? Undergraduate Major(s) and Minor(s): Additional degrees, certifications, awards: Honors: Clubs/Societies: Work Experience: (description and how much time) Intern Experience: (description and how much time) Volunteer Experience: (description and how much time) Strength of Personal Statement: 1-10 (was it reviewed?) Languages you speak: Age, Gender, Ethnicity: (sometimes this matters to admissions) Additional: Your intended area of focus: mental health, child welfare, public policy etc Your story: Anything else you would like to share, or things you feel may be considered about your journey in life by the admissions committee.
  21. The more I think about this decision the more I can't decide!!! I made a spreadsheet with weighted points hoping it would help and they're BASICALLY TIED!!!! For what it's worth: I'm interested in translational neuroscience, specifically considering either addiction or neurodegenerative diseases. I'm hoping to go into industry after getting my PhD. Both programs are interdisciplinary and draw professors from multiple departments. At both schools I met PIs that I really 'clicked' with and could see myself doing research with. How do I make this decision?!
  22. I recently received three ECE PhD offers from UCLA, Gatech and UIUC. It is really hard to make a decision. Could anyone give me some suggestions. I want to find an industry job after my PhD (Prefer Silicon Valley). UCLA pros: 1. High reputation 2. Good location. 3. Prestigious adviser Cons: 1. Large research group, very few attention from adviser 2. High living expenses Gatech Pros: 1. High reputation for ECE program 2. Interesting research project Cons: 1. Location (Less tech jobs in Atlanta than Los Angeles?) 2. Security UIUC Pros: 1. High reputation for ECE program Cons: 1. Location 2. Cold

    Columbia MSUP vs. UCLA MURP

    Hi everyone, I got into both Master of Science in Urban Planning (MSUP) at Columbia University and Master of Urban and Regional Planning (MURP) at UCLA. I'm having trouble deciding between these two schools and there are couple factors that have been shifting my mind: UCLA has always been my dream school but Columbia is a big name too Columbia costs way more than UCLA does (but finance won't be the No.1 factor in my decision process) I live in LA so it will be convenient for me just to attend UCLA; However, some of my friends and family members are suggesting this would a great chance to explore a brand new environment). I have to admit that the opportunity to live in NYC for two years is attractive. I am going to check out both schools and learn more about their concentrations but any inputs/ thoughts from you guys will be appreciated. Help, please! Many thanks!

    UCLA MLIS 2018

    Wondering if others have heard anything back from UCLA regarding the Master's of Library and Information Science program. I was accepted by the department on February 14, but still have not heard anything from the graduation division. Curious how the FA process works for this program as well. But mainly just trying to connect with other people from this program! Anyone? hah
  25. I got an admission for MS in Electrical Engineering programs from UCLA, UIUC and UT Austin. I am not sure which one should I go for. I am interested in VLSI circuits and systems. I want this decision to be made considering the following factors: 1. Reputation of school in the field of electrical engineering 2. Future job prospects 3. Quality and level of research and professors 4. Financial aid easiness in the university 5. University's inclination to Electrical Engineering, especially VLSI, Power Electronics and machine learning (and the extent of inter disciplinary encouragement of different engineering departments) Please help in selecting. Thank You
