  1. Hello all! I haven’t really seen anything for a PhD in Nutrition. Wanted to start a topic for everyone to post comments/questions. I know I’m waiting to hear from schools in Tennessee and North Carolina. Anyone heard anything yet?
  2. Has anyone applied to UNC Greensboro's PhD in Public Health Education? Did you get an interview?? Has you status been updated?
  3. Hi everyone! I am planning on applying to art history masters programs and was wondering if anyone knew the answers to the following questions: 1. Does Case Western's art history masters give a full tuition remission and stipend or just the Art History + Museum Studies masters? 2. Does Hunter College give funding? 3. Does anyone know about the prestige of UNC Chapel Hill's masters program? 4. If a school has waived the GRE does it work against me to not send it in?
  4. Hello all! I haven’t really seen anything for a PhD in Nutrition. Wanted to start a topic for everyone to post comments/questions. Anyone heard anything from UNC- Chapel Hill or know when decisions/interviews are likely to go out?
  5. Hi everyone! I am currently applying to PhD programs for biomedical science. I really just need an umbrella program because I have too many interests to confidently apply to a specific program. I have a lot of research experience but a 3.4 GPA , but my last two semesters is a 3.7 (adding that in my "additional information" section for applications. I have had the same mentor and advisor my full 4 years at undergrad. I have been in independent research with him since my summer sophomore year and currently doing an honors research thesis with him. He is writing my letter of rec,
  6. Realized I had preemptively posted in the April 15th week section. I am currently weighting offers from UNC and Rice for a PhD in Statistics, and waiting for a response from TAMU (my top choice). Background: I am in my last semester of my Masters of Statistics at NC State. Started research with one of my professors there last semester and really enjoyed it; however, the MS program at state doesn't go as far in depth in either applied or theoretical statistics as I would like. I prefer Texas (e.g., Houston/proximity to Austin) for long-term location, but Rice appears to be ranke
  7. Hello! I got accepted into Columbia and UNC's MS biostatistic programs and I need some help in making my decision! So, as of right now, I'm not really considering pursuing for a PhD after the master program. But I've heard that getting a PhD in biostatistics really gives you advantages in the job market that you kinda have to have a PhD to get a job that pays well (although this applies to all fields I guess), so if anyone knows about this, please help! My main concern is about the schools themselves. For Columbia, I've heard that the MS program is easy and that they give a lo

  9. Hi all, I'm a prospective international graduate student in the US; last year I was awarded a scholarship to do a Master's in Multimedia Communications (Interactive/Visual Documentary Production) for the upcoming fall. I've applied to several universities and I've been admitted to all of them. I'm having real trouble to choose between them, since I like all of the programs and they are very strong. Here I express my thoughts on each of them, in hopes someone who knows the schools or the campuses can offer me some insight. UC Berkeley I would have to ask for a loan at least for
  10. Hi all, I have received fully funded (and relatively comparable in $$$) admission offers to the UNC Biostatistics PhD program, Colorado Biostatistics PhD program, and University of Michigan M.S. program. I'm having a tough time discerning differences between the programs and would appreciate comments on the strengths, weaknesses, and possible reasons to favor each program. I'm currently having a hard time deciding between the three, but I will choose to attend one of the listed programs. I don't necessarily have a particular research interest, but I think my end goal is to get an ind
  11. How many people have applied to UNC's full-time MSW program starting in Fall 2020? I applied by the priority deadline in December and haven't heard back yet, so just wondering what other people's timelines look like and if anyone has been accepted yet!
  12. I know that internal fellowships tend not to matter much beyond the period of time in which you have them. I've been offered two rather different fellowships, however, and I'm trying to determine if the difference between them is substantive or not. The first is UNC's Royster Fellowship, which comes with about a $6,000 stipend increase. It seems rather prestigious and selective, with the fancy name, university-wide competition, and inclusion into the "Royster Society of Fellows," with lots of different networking and professional development opportunities. My guess is that all of this app

    MSW UNC 3 Year

    Hi everyone! I have not seen many people post about the MSW 3 year Distance program at UNC Chapel Hill. Has anyone applied for it?
  14. Hey! Has anyone heard anything yet about their admissions decision for Advanced Standing at UNC Chapel Hill? I'm getting more and more anxious everyday!
  15. I’ll be starting an MLIS at UNC Chapel Hill in fall 2019 and I was wondering if anyone else is heading to UNC in the fall in any area of study?
  16. I am considering my potential decision for these statistics&biostatistics PhD program. It is really a hard choice because I don't know these programs in detail, such as reputation, academic placement. I want to engage in statistical research and step into the academic fields in the future. I am more likely to go to UNC because of its higher reputation (actually, I am not very sure because their ranking shown in USnews is very close.) And they seem to have many professors engaging in machine learning, which is one of the popular topics these days. I am also attracted by its biostatisti
  17. Hello All ! I'm an international student who just finished a Master's degree in Biostatistics. I was admitted to the UNC Chapel Hill Biostats program and am waiting to hear about financial aiding. According to posts here from previous years, I have noticed that some students did not hear back about the funding even until late March. I was wondering if this is the case, and also if you know any previous students or accepted students who declined have been offered their funding at some point before accepting the offer. I am so glad and thankful to be admitted, but for
  18. Hi! I am a student at UNC Chapel Hill and only started taking SLP pre-reqs my junior year, and in the years before this I was a nursing/PA student with a low GPA. My GPA in pre-reqs is a 3.7/3.8, and my overall GPA is a 3.1. My GRE scores are alright... 159 V, 153 Q, 5.5 W. I have lots of experience working with my desired community (children) and am looking to participate in research this coming semester (I will be a senior in Fall 2018.) I am also going abroad this summer to Belize and volunteering at a clinic there. I guess what I'm wondering is.. do I have a chance anywhere? With that
  19. I'm looking for anyone else who accepted at UNC! Anyone know if there's a fb page? It would be nice to connect before meeting in August!
  20. I am deciding between USF, UNC Chapel Hill, MGH and NYMC. USF is by far the cheapest (by a landslide), but all of their classes are 3 hour evening classes, and I don't know how I feel about this. I don't think you learn as well this way. I'm interested in the medical aspect, but every source has said that which school you go to doesn't matter. The cost is important to me because I'm relying on loans and outside scholarships for living expenses, travel expenses, etc. I work but I only make like $11/hour right now. What do you think about having all evening classes? Do you know how c
  21. Hey everyone! I am admitted to MS biostatistics programs at UNC and Michigan. Both schools have an internal process and a preference of admitting their own master’s students to their own PhD program, especially UNC. I was wondering would it be bad if if apply for an internal transfer as well as trying to apply for other TOP biostatistics programs like Harvard or JHU in the meantime? Would it be a bad impression for the faculties? Thank you!
  22. Hello! I've been accepted into Columbia and UNC's Biostatistics MS programs and I'm having trouble deciding between the two! I'm leaning towards Columbia but it worries me that their Stats department is apparently not well regarded. Does this reputation extend to their Biostats department, even though their department is still in the top 10? I know that UNC is a better program overall and has more renowned professors, but if my end goal is to pursue a PhD, does it matter where I get my MS? Cost is not a strong factor because I consider living in NYC
  23. I am deciding between Duke and UNC-Chapel Hill for a Chemistry Ph.D. I know UNC has a stronger chem program overall but I am looking to do more chem bio with biomed applications, and Duke has one of the best med schools. In terms of research groups, they're pretty balanced with 2-3 groups at each school that I could work for. So in re: pros/cons, UNC and Duke are tied for me. My question is: are students happier/less stressed at Duke or at UNC? I get that UNC has a top program and that likely comes with additional stress, but is it so bad I should choose Duke instead? I know that
  24. Hello, all! I'm deciding on an MPA program, and I have it narrowed down to Brown and UNC Chapel Hill. I'm honestly totally split, and have no idea what to do. I'd really appreciate thoughts from others. The situation is that Brown is 1 year and UNC is 2, but UNC is still much, much cheaper. UNC is ranked a good bit higher, but Brown has the name and more of a global focus (which is my interest). I'm most likely interested in working in the nonprofit sector, and Brown's program would be better for that, but I'm having trouble reconciling that with the high cost of tuition. The problem is t
  25. Hi everyone! How many of you applied to UNC's MSW program? I just sent in my application for Advanced Standing. NOW WE WAIT!
