  1. Hi Everyone! I created this topic to just introduce anyone who is accepted their admission to UIC, contemplating on accepting admission, or pending acceptance! Ask away and I hope to meet some of you all starting Fall 2020!
  2. I have been accepted by University of Illinois at Chicago for MA English (Creative Writing). The department does not have funding for MA students for this particular program. When I told them that I cannot pay, they said I could apply for graduate assistant jobs which could get me a partial fee waiver and stipend. But the problem is that applying for job is chance-based. Its totally possible that I might not get the job. In that case I might be stranded with near to no money. Should I accept the offer?
  3. I’m a teacher in Chicago Public Schools and am planning on beginning part-time PhD studies next Fall in Ed Policy. I’ve been accepted to the three programs I applied to: Policy Studies in Urban Education (Social Foundations) at University of Illinois - Chicago, —Cultural and Ed Policy Studies at Loyola, and -Curriculum Studies at DePaul. Because I will be part-time, I will be self-funding my studies, but am wondering if there are people who’ve gone through any of these programs - or people who’ve completed programs part-time who could offer advice. I really like both Loyola and UIC’s
  4. Hi, I am a first-year Graduate Student in Chemistry at the University of Illinois Chicago. I got admitted here in Fall 2018. I basically work on MD Simulations. Now I got an offer to study Machine Learning at Cambridge for PhD with a very well-known professor. However, I am somewhat sceptical about moving to UK from USA since I am unaware of the grad life in UK. The monthly stipend at Cambridge is also quite less. Please offer me some advice. I seem clueless right now.
  5. Hello, everyone! I know that it's a bit early in the admissions cycle, but I recently submitted my application to UIC and I started getting excited. Hoping that we can share information about decisions and scholarships, and anxiety as time goes on!
  6. Hey guys, I recently applied to the advanced standing social work program at UIC for the fall of 2018. I’m pretty worried about my chances of getting in and I can’t find much information about other worried people’s admission results. I’m graduating this May from SIUC with my bachelors in social work. I went to a community college for my first 2 years. I have a cum. GPA of 3.0 but I show a lot of improvement in my grades. I went from a semester gpa of 2.0 at community college to a 3.6 at SIU. I’m in a sorority and I have a lot of different volunteer experiences and hours. I submitted 3 LORs. I
  7. Okay, so I'm a first generation college student, trying really hard to wrap my head around grad school and my odds of being accepted. Background: I have a bachelor's degree in elementary education from a small, private liberal arts college. Graduated in 2014. Immediately after college, I joined Teach for America and spent two years in an inner-city school. After, I moved back to the western Chicago suburbs. I have since been teaching kindergarten at a not-for-profit child care center since June 2016. Here's the catch: I have decided I want to do research psychology. Psychology
  8. I am an international student and am applying for MS in Computer Science, Fall 2017. Till now, I've got only 1 admission letter, which is from UIC. I expected to get another one from ASU. So I mailed them (both the university and the department) last week and they replied that it's still under review and that they expect to make admission decisions till the end of May. Nothing was mentioned about wait-listing and rejection. Now, my question is, should I wait for their letter? The deadline for UIC is May 15th and I'm already getting fidgety. I have to arrange for a student loan, hou
  9. I didn't see a thread for UIC, Fall 2017. So I made one. I will be taking admission for MS In Computer Science and as an international student, thought it would be nice if I knew someone there before I actually arrived there. In short, Hi all my future university mates!
  10. Hey fellas, How's it goin' for ya? I'm still waiting for a single admission. no answer up to now. ucsd, uci, northeastern -> chemical engineering ucr, uic ,uiuc -> bioengineering all phd. is there anybody heard from these programs at these univs? should I have hope for any admission letter? ------------------------------profile------------------------------------ TOEFL:104-IELTS:7-GRE GENERAL:146(v)168(q)-GPA:3.60 with a year or two related research exprience.
  11. I applied in January to UIC. I have seen threads from years past that said UIC was notorious for having a long delay in getting back to applicants. This is the only school I applied to (want to stay in Chicago, did private undergrad at Loyola, can't afford private masters) and I just wanted to know if anyone else had been accepted and how long it took?
  12. I'm sweating out the University of Illinois Chicago's PhD History announcement. Has anyone heard about/got acceptance letters? Is it common to wait this long? I think, not sure, I have to be on a wait list -- I hope.
  13. I was wondering if anyone has accepted an offer at UIC and heard back about financial aid? I was told that I would not be considered for aid until I accept an offer and send in my deposit. I have qualified for need-based aid in the past, so I am wondering about my chances for qualifying at UIC. However, I am hesitant about commiting without hearing back on aid. I am an out-of-state student with little to no financial support, and I am not sure I can afford it without any aid.
  14. I saw there was a thread last year, so I figured I'd ask for this application round. Anyone out there apply for a medical illustration program? I'm currently playing the waiting game with RIT. And...I may have sort of chickened out of applying to any of the other schools. Good news is I got accepted into my backup plan: an MPS in Information Visualization at MICA. Not medical illustration, but should certainly aid me in getting my foot in the door for scientific communication. With that being said, how'd your interviews go? Have you heard back from the different schools? I'd love to
  15. Hi all, First post. I've reviewed the rules, hopefully I'm not doing anything too outrageous. I was recently accepted to UIC's MS in biostatistics program. However, I've recently learned about the Illinois budget crisis, and how UIC as an institution is paying out certain scholarships in anticipation of them being reimbursed by the state at a future time. They've already had to layoff a fair amount of non-research staff. Long story short, this is rather alarming to me. Would be curious to hear from any current students about how the budget crisis is affecting you. Assistantships
  16. Hi all, I was wondering if anyone on here has any experience of studying at UIC. I have been accepted to their PhD programme in Urban Education Policy, but cannot see any posters on grad cafe who have attended. Any info about the university in general and specifically the education department would be much appreciated - as I live abroad I cannot go and visit before having to make my decision. Thanks
  17. I'm still waiting to hear from University of Illinois-Chicago, and I haven't seen much activity lately on the CJ threads. I'm hoping others are still waiting to hear from some schools, maybe even UIC, and we can commiserate together. Or if you've heard something or I've heard something we can come here instead of page through 15 pages or more of the other threads.
  18. Hi all, I'm wondering if anyone can give me some advice and comparisons regarding the English departments and MA programs at Loyola, UIC, and DePaul? I've applied to all three. I've been accepted to Loyola and Depaul MA in English programs, both without funding. I'm still waiting to hear back from UIC, getting very nervous at this point. I'm leaning towards UIC if I get accepted. UIC also offers no funding for MA students. Does anyone have any comments on the comparisons of the English departments and the schools? I would love to hear any feedback you have. Thank you.
  19. Hi everyone, I’m hoping you all could give me some advice. I’m deciding between two unfunded MA programs for English, BU and UIC. (I know how financially irresponsible this is, for all you in that camp.) BU is a 1 year program, and UIC is a 2 year program. They actually run about the same in tuition costs. BU has offered me a $5,000 scholarship, but compared to the total cost of tuition, it is a drop in the bucket. Does anyone have some sort of formula to weigh pros and cons of schools? I attended BU’s open house, and I really love the feel of the campus, and I think I would be

  21. Hi all! I'm still waiting to hear back from UIC. I applied to their MA program in English. I've seen a few posts on here about the PhD program acceptances. Does that most likely mean the MA acceptances have gone out as well? Trying to keep the hope alive. Thanks.
