  1. 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?
  2. 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 biostatistics department, which ranks Top 5 with many renowned professors in individualized treatment, deep learning and theoretical fields. But in recent years, the rank of statistics department in UNC is not higher than before maybe because of some distinguished professors went to other universities. I am also worried about the correlation between statistics and OR because actually there are two areas in their department. Actually, I am more interested in UNC because of its connection with its biostat department and stat department at Duke and NCSU and the gold triangle areas. The statistics departments at UMN and PSU are bigger than UNC. And the research fields are pretty more than UNC. Although they have many distinguished professors, the academic placements may be not better than UNC because I see that more distinguished professors in other Top departments graduated at UNC. The MCMC fields is pretty strong in UFL. And Upenn may be can find potential chance to choose a co-advisor in Wharton. Really look forward to your sugestions! Thanks!
  3. Has anyone applied to UNC Greensboro's PhD in Public Health Education? Did you get an interview?? Has you status been updated?
  4. 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 a grad student, funding is such a crucial part, as I believe most of you already know and agree. I would love if any of you could share any information about this. Thanks!
  5. 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 low of a GPA, but good LOR, experience, and what not, can I still get into my desired programs? Programs I know I'll be applying to are UNC, UNCG, ECU, App State, U of Tenn, U of Memphis, FSU, U of Florida. Programs I may be applying to are UCF, Jacksonville, Radford, NC Central, Western, GWU, etc. Thanks for any help, I am very worried lol
  6. 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!
  7. 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 common this is among other programs? The purpose is so that you are free during the day for clinicals. USF has over 200 clinical placement sites! Does anyone have any first hand experience about the other programs? If there are any great advantages? Thanks so much for taking the time to read this post!!
  8. 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!
  9. 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 to be a once in a lifetime opportunity. I am also more interested in eventually working in industry if that helps. (I've heard that Columbia has more ties in industry and UNC is more theoretical with difficult quals) Thanks so much for any replies!
  10. 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 the programs at Columbia, Stanford, etc. are pretty cutthroat and stress-inducing and I am wondering if that is the case at UNC.
  11. 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 that I know i don't have a bad option and I have no clue where to go! Thanks in advance for your thoughts.
  12. I'm fortunate to have been accepted to both programs. Based solely on research faculty and rankings, which is stronger? I can't find much information regarding the biostats program. Is it clumped together with the bio, med, or stats dept? In addition, if I'm looking for industry work which would look stronger? If you have any info regarding internal PhD conversion rates or on whether Duke's program has been on the up and up please let me know!!
  13. Hi everyone! How many of you applied to UNC's MSW program? I just sent in my application for Advanced Standing. NOW WE WAIT!
  14. Hi everyone, I'm considering applying to a Masters' program in public health in the future (probably the cycle after next). As I live in North Carolina, UNC seems like a good choice solely for financial reasons, not to mention it is ranked #2 in the US. However, I don't see too much about UNC mentioned on these threads (especially in comparison to other schools). Is there a reason why it's not as popular on here? I am interested in learning more about the pros and cons of the School and would greatly appreciate any insight you all may have! Right off the bat, I'm interested in global health and policy, and it seems that a DC-area school may be better suited to someone with policy interests, but I'm not sure if that's a valid concern. Thanks!
  15. So this morning, I'm checking my email and I find an invitation to the UNC chemistry's visit weekends (Mar 9-10 and 23-24) with details about how to schedule meetings with PIs, arrange travel, etc... This would be great news, but I haven't actually received an acceptance letter from UNC yet... So I figure, maybe they've put it on the application portal and I've just missed it (I'm overseas and we have issues with our IP getting flagged so I haven't been able to log on to check for a while), but no change so I'm not sure what to make of it. As a bit of a brain teaser, the email's addressed to me, but the UNC PID that I'm supposed to log in to their travel website with doesn't work. I know the obvious answer is "email them back and ask about your application," but I was just wondering if this has happened before to anyone?
  16. Hello, all! I just submitted my application to Chapel Hill MPA. I've looked everywhere but can't find any information about interviews/when they are/format/when we get invites. Does anyone know anything? Thanks a heap!

  18. Hello everyone! Thank you to all of you for all of your help through out this process, you are seriously amazing people! I planned to apply to University of North Carolina Chapel Hill, but as I was completing their prereqs section on CSDCAS, I am a bit confused if I am eligible. Their website says you must complete all prereqs prior to beginning graduate coursework, does this mean you can complete these courses there, or they expect you to have completed them elsewhere?

    AuD costs

    I am applying to 4 AuD programs. Cost is a huge influence for me, and so I have been calculating all the costs for the different programs. This has been challenging since every school has a different way of breaking tuition down, and I am finding some to be much more clear than others! Is there anyone else out there that is doing this for these schools and could verify I did this right? Any advice is greatly appreciated! Also, I am calculating resident costs, since I am applying to schools only on the Western Exchange Program (since I am from Colorado). The schools I am applying to are: University of Utah (Salt Lake City), University of Colorado (Boulder), University of Northern Colorado, and University of Washington (Seattle) Here is what I have so far! · University of Utah: Cost if resident: o First year Fall semester (13 credits): approx. $4,519.34 o First year Spring semester (12 credits): approx. $4,270.31 o First year Summer semester (9 credits): approx. $3,505.74 o Second year Fall semester (11 credits): approx. $4,021.28 o Second year Spring semester (11 credits): approx.$4,021.28 o Second year Summer semester (6 credits):approx.$2,732.43 o Third year Fall semester (11.5 credits): approx. $4,270.31 o Third year Spring semester (10.5 credits): approx.$3,763.51 o Fourth year Fall (9 credits): approx. $3,505.74 o Fourth year Spring (9 credits): approx. $3,505.74 o Total cost for resident= $38,115.68 University of Colorado Boulder First Year: resident, using estimator · Fall Semester: 13 credits o Credit costs: $5,580 o fees: $927 · Spring Semester: 10 credits o Credit costs: $5,580 o Fees: $927 · Summer Semester: 1 credit o Credit costs: $1,860 o Fees: $780 Second Year: · Fall Semester: 15 credits o Credit costs: $5,580 o Fees: $927 · Spring Semester: 15 credits o Credit costs: $5,580 o Fees: $927 · Summer semester: 8 credits o Credit costs: $4,960 o Fees: $927 Third Year: · Fall Semester: 15 credits o Credit costs: $5,580 o Fees: $927 · Spring Semester: 15 credits o Credit costs: $5,580 o Fees: $927 · Summer Semester: 4 credits o Credit costs: $2,480 o Fees: $808 Fourth Year: 9 credits · Fall Semester: 4 credits o Credit costs: $2,480 o Fees: $808 · Spring Semester: 4 credits o Credit costs: $2,480 o Fees: $808 Total Cost: $57,433
  20. I'm starting a PhD program at UNC-Chapel Hill this August, and I've never lived on the east coast or visited for more than a few days. I'm from New Mexico/Colorado, so I'm used to the dry, arid temps and cooler nights. I'm also more used to the very laid-back, easy-going clothing style here! Does anyone have any advice about the types of clothes that girls wear around the east coast, and what is appropriate for a grad school look? I want to update my wardrobe from the "collegiate" style to a more "adult" style but am pretty sure that I won't be wearing pencil skirts and heels around campus/lab all day. I'm also curious what types of supplies and bags people use in grad school.. do you have a backpack or a messenger bag or simply a computer? Carry a lunch bag? What works best for you? I'm not picky on any style and I'm sure it'll depend on how much stuff I'm carrying around, etc. Just looking for extra advice that I can think about! Thanks!
  21. I was recently accepted to the Berkeley's MA in Biostatistics and UNC's MS in Biostatistics. I am conflicted between the two-- Berkeley is the best public school in the nation while UNC has the #4 Biostatistics program and the #2 public health school. At this point, I am considering continuing on for a PhD after my Master's but this is something I won't be sure about until I begin the program. In calculating tuition (assuming that I do not get an assistantship at any point at either of the schools), Berkeley comes out to $50k while UNC comes out to $57k. After factoring in rent based on an average price, Berkeley comes out to about $94k while UNC totals at $75k. I am drawn to Berkeley because of its name and location; I have lived in a small college town for the past 5 years and was hoping to move to a busier city. Additionally, Berkeley stated in their acceptance letter than most students are able to secure an assistantship at some point. Finally, I have learned from current students that most students who wish to continue on for a PhD have the opportunity to do so. One main advantage of UNC is that the program is bigger; UNC has an incoming cohort of 11-20 students while Berkeley has 7-8 students. UNC has more professors in Biostats than Berkeley. This is especially important if I continue on for a PhD, in which case I will have more research areas to choose from. I would be much more interested in applied research rather than theoretical research-- In which case I believe UNC is a better fit. If I decide to finish with a Master's I am unsure of which school would be better. In that case, does the name of the school matter or the rank of the program? If I decide to continue on for a PhD, I am almost sure that UNC is a better choice-- due to rank, diversity in research, etc. But I would appreciate thoughts on that as well.
  22. Hi Guys, another School A or School B question here. This time it's UNC and NC State for a phd in statistics, perhaps the most diametrically opposed (in terms of theory vs applied) of the departments I applied to. As for me, my interests are not very set in stone. I enjoy machine learning and spatial stats, but I'm fairly open to most subjects in stats/probability. And my mind is not made up on industry vs academia, so I would prefer the school that keeps either option open. I would highly appreciate any input on my dilemma. Particularly on the question of which department is considered "more prestigious" as I keep getting ambiguous responses to this question (US news world vs other rankings, statistics vs probability professors, etc) (A&M is also an option, but I would need some major convincing to live in college station)
  23. Hey everyone, I still haven't heard back from some my schools, but I'm currently trying to choose between Columbia and UNC for a PhD in biostats. I'd appreciate any advice. I am 95% sure I want to go into academia, but I'm not sure what area of research I'm interested in so I want to be in a department with a wide variety of research, where I'm not cornered into one area. Does anyone know if I can find that at Columbia? I'm worried they are too focused on functional data and imaging. I know UNC is better ranked and has a bigger department, but I'm pretty apprehensive about living in the south. However, I don't really want to give up UNC if it would give me a bigger advantage on the job market, since it seems like UNC has more big name faculty and more opportunities for academic jobs post graduation. I visited both schools and really liked both departments/cohorts, so it's making it even more difficult to decide. Thank you in advance
  24. If you are familiar with the Strategy & Entrepreneurship group (ranking, reputation, placement, curriculum, anything), I'd really appreciate your thoughts. Thanks a lot!
  25. So I've noticed few rejections/interviews for UNC chapel on the "results". I noticed some saying that on the website it said that all emails for the interview has been sent out. I could not find this on their website. Also all the people that posted applied to clinical program. I applied to their quant program. If I still haven't heard back about the visiting day, does that mean I got rejected? If someone can give me the link that shows that UNC has already sent out all the emails, I'll greatly appreciate that!
