  1. Hi all, so I applied to the MS-CAPP at University of Chicago Harris School of Public Policy in the Round three admissions round. I submitted my application before the March 31st deadline, but the school pushed back the deadline to April 28th due to Covid-19. I was wondering if any one knows whether Harris reviews applications on a rolling basis or reviews them altogether after the deadline. I'm asking because I'm an international student and if they review applications altogether after the deadline, this will put me at a disadvantage. Thanks!!
  2. Hello all, So, I got into UChicago MAPSS. I applied to MAPSS in large part because am interested in switching fields from something more humanities-oriented to social psychology and thought the MAPSS program would be really a great way to transition fields before applying to social psychology PhD programs. I am fortunate enough to have received a scholarship which makes the program within the realm of affordable. Nevertheless, I'd need to take out a good amount of money in loans and spend all of my savings on living costs. Because of these costs, I'm a bit nervous about pursuing MAPS
  3. I need your help people... I originally applied for the doctoral program in history and was informed that they instead offer me this, with 1/3 of the tuition (I think I can negotiate them up to 2/3). I didn't get into any other doctoral programs, but I did get into a masters program back home (international student here) which would amount to about $25,000 in student dept, over two years, while being a way less prestigious university. I need some honest advice, would you guys take it? Why or why not? Also, I could live with family in Chicago and thus not pay that much for living expenses... I'
  4. Hi there, Has anyone who applied to the CEB (or any other bioscience) PhD program at UChicago heard anything from them?
  5. Hi, is there anyone who has succeeded in increasing the scholarships/ financial awards they have received, as part of their admission to top graduate schools? I currently have one admission offer from UChicago's MAPSS program, and was able to increase the financial award to $20,000, but I want to request again that the school provide a full tuition award. What can I say and how can I appeal to the MAPSS committee better? Do I need to provide new GRE scores? More evidence of research activity? I heard that this funding request was not supposed to be difficult, but it does not
  6. I just got an email from them requesting to know my availability for a skype interview, but also stating that they won’t interview everyone this email was sent to. I’m wondering if they sent this to all applicants or just a handful—what does this mean?
  7. Hi everyone!! Recently I have been admitted to the Stat MS program at Stanford & U Chicago and am struggling. I will try to advance to PhD after MS, but I don't know which school will offer me a better chance? I heard that Chicago has a good PhD prep and many research opportunities. I am not sure how Stanford is. But Stanford Stat ranks higher than U Chicago... Chicago Pros: - Tuition reduction (25%) - Good preparation for PhD - More research opportunity Cons: - Not as well-known as Stanford - Location is not as good.
  8. So...it's been a couple of months but I'm still unable to choose between MA in Computational Social Sciences (MACSS) at U Chicago MPhil in Economics at Oxford and I'd really appreciate if someone could help me a bit... With partial tuition waiver at U Chicago and no funding from Oxford, the cost of attending is roughly the same so that's not a factor. In terms of curriculum, I like MACSS better because I have double degree in IT and economics, so I believe that I have a unique edge in a computational social sciences program coz I can program and do math a
  9. Hello, Anyone here got accepted to the Taps-Music joint PhD at the University of Chicago? Also, anyone else who interviewed for the Taps-Music joint PhD at Chicago last week? Looking forward!
  10. I am seeking advice for the Master's programs at University of Chicago CIR (Committee on International Relations) and at Columbia University (Political Science). I originally applied to the PhD programs in PoliSci but was transferred to these 1-year MA programs. I received 2 PhD offers from rank 40/50 schools and decided to decline in order to increase my chances of better placement in the next cycle for PhD. My field of interest is International Relations with geographic emphasis on East Asia (esp. China, Korean peninsula) - security studies. So far I have a break-down of the pros/
  11. Anyone out there apply by the April 1 deadline at University of Chicago SSA? I applied in February and am awaiting my decision so I can commit to a program!
  12. 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?
  13. Hey everyone! I've been offered admission to UChicago's PhD program in political science (IR) and will be attending! Has anyone else been accepted and thinking of attending? I'd love to get in touch with some other people who had been admitted, even if they're in other programs!
  14. I'm probably going to get crucified for even asking this, but oh well: I've been accepted (full funding, assistantship, stipend) to a PhD program in english, but I also just received a decent scholarship to MAPH (Writing Option) and I'm considering asking my PhD for a deferment so that I can do both. I get all the knocks on MAPH but I can afford it, UChicago is pretty darn cool, and if I can have my cake (MAPH) and eat it too (PhD), does it hurt to ask? Or does MAPH exist so exclusively to get people into PhD programs that delaying one to enroll in it is just too stupid to even ask about?
  15. Hello! I'm hoping someone out there can help me make a solid decision about which graduate program to enroll in. I was recently offered admission into these two programs: University of Chicago, MA, Latin American & Caribbean Studies (Art History focus); 1 year program; ~8 students Hunter College CUNY, MA, Art History (Latin American focus); ~2 year program; ~100 students; part-time or full-time I hope to (eventually) pursue a fully-funded PhD program in Latin American art history. I have contacted professors at the schools I hope to apply to for PhD programs a
  16. I come from a low-income family and was able to attend Wellesley College thanks to their incredible need-based aid. I am going to UChicago for a masters in public policy next year and want to serve you all in the US federal government graduation. However, my family and I lack funding, and I'm looking at lot of debt right now. I entered a scholarship contest in which I can win $4,000 for the first prize if my friends vote up to twice a day by April 1. It would mean the world to me if you did and could tell your friends and post in a group or two. The link is here: http://crosslites.org/bro
  17. Did anyone else receive an email from SSA saying that decisions are delayed even though they were supposed to come out today. Does this mean that I'm not getting in? Has anyone gotten their answer today?
  18. Hi, Can one apply for Harris School, University of Chicago, MSCAPP program scholarship through Joint Japan World Bank Scholarship (preferred list) ? Alternatively would be grateful if one could assist with STEM scholarships for international students ? Many thanks!

    CIR Chicago

    Hello all, I was accepted to the CIR program at Chicago (very excited and surprised) with 38k in funding. Yet this still means I need to shell out a lot of money for a masters. I plan to follow through with a phd program. I'm very interested in improving my language skills and doing a research assistantship. Are these goals feasible in a single year in such a rigorous program? Is 19,000 dollars in debt a deathtrap for a masters? Is this an normal amount of funding? I'm basically right out of undergraduate with a little research experience and time abroad (+bad quant GRE). I'm not willing
  20. Dear all, I'm trying to decide whether to accept UChicago or Caltech for PhD in Economics starting Fall 2018. UChicago Econ is obviously a higher ranked department but I'm worried about the facts that: 1. I'm into theory (Mech design, game theory etc.) and want to continue to have this as my major specialization area. However Chicago graduates tend to be entirely in the macro/empirics/applied micro areas (Source: Current job market candidates). 2. Chicago is known to be a bit of a brutal place. EJMR forums say the faculty doesn't mentor students/spend time with students etc e
  21. I was recently talking to a graduate from the SSA program at the University of Chicago, and she was highly critical of the program. In summary, she thought that the non-clinical classes were ineffective and that the school in general barley addressed systemic racism and created a culture of social workers with a white savior complex. I was wondering if other's have opinions on the program?
  22. Hi all, I'm new to this forum but am hoping to get a bit of advice regarding a decision I have to make. I have been accepted to both the University of Chicago Harris School MPP and the University of Applied Sciences Berlin (Hochschule für Technik und Wirtschaft Berlin) Masters in International Development Economics. I am sure not many people know about the latter program but I am really interested in the topic (Development Econ.) and the city. In addition, I wouldn't need to take out loans for the whole masters (1.5 years), although the university is less well-known and not as academi
  23. I was offered admission into the University of Chicago's MAPSS program, but I was only offered one third tuition coverage. Unfortunately I can't afford to attend if I don't receive more funding, so I was told by the program to write a merit petition highlighting achievements that the committe might have missed when deciding funding. I would appreciate it if someone could help me edit and proofread my merit petition, so that it looks nice and neat for the committee. Hopefully it will help influence their decision concerning my funding. Would anyone be interested in proofreading and helping me e
  24. First off, I understand that the MAPH is, at best, a controversial program. I'm not trying to get people riled up or to step on anyone's toes. I applied to the MAPH at UChicago, initially, because I didn't realize UChicago had a continuous MA-PhD program in their East Asian Languages & Civilizations (EALC). So I ended up applying to both. I was rejected soundly from the East Asian Languages & Civ. department at UChicago but offered partially (1/3) funding for the MAPH program. I was also admitted into the University of Washington's (UW) Jackson School of International Studies (JSIS) Ja
  25. So I'm not sure how to interpret this. I am applying to several Asian Studies (Japan Studies) programs this fall for my MA. University of Washington, Stanford University, and the University of Chicago. I have received one acceptance (woo!) and one rejection from the two programs I've applied to at University of Washington. At least I'm going somewhere! During the last few days, though, I did not receive an e-mail from University of Chicago's East Asian Languages and Civilizations department, but, rather, my personal application page at the website changed. Suddenly it had an envelope
