  1. Hey, all! Just wanted to reach out and see if there are any other future Huskies in our midst 🙂 I've only visited Seattle a handful of times so I'm a bit nervous for this upcoming move. My partner and I are hoping for graduate family housing but it looks like the waitlist on that is intense. Might be doing writing in a shoebox this time next year. Looks like the cherry blossoms are on full blast over there this week and next! 😄
  2. Hi all I've an admit for MS-CLMS at UW this fall 2021. I wanted to join a WhatsApp/Telegram group with other students going to UW this fall. Please let me know if there's already a group for this (especially for CLMS) or else we can create one here.
  3. Hi, I got admissions from several great schools for this fall semester, but I cannot decide yet. Where will you choose if you are in my shoes? I have 8 yrs work experience as ux designer and I have BFA in visual design. I’d like to work at FAANG as product designer later, and also I want to be a professor in my country(Asia) later. Here are the pros and cons: 1. CMU mDes + great name value in field/academia ? small cohort size (~10) - location (Pittsburgh) - no STEM 2. UW HCDE + great name value in field + location (close with tech companies) - location (Seattle = boring, rainy..) - low name value in my country ? Big cohort size (100~) 3. NYU ITP + location (New York!) + can experience physical computing - not focus on UX directly ? Big cohort size (100~) 4. RCA GID + double degree (MA in RCA, MS in Imperial College) + more innovative curriculum - location (London.. BREXIT.......) - not focus on UX directly If you have any experience or opinions about these schools, let me know! Thanks!
  4. Hello all! I saw a few others recently admitted to the UW Evans MPA program for Fall 2018, and thought I'd start a discussion thread to meet each other and discuss various aspects of the school and thoughts on the decision-making process. Where else have you applied/been admitted? Are you leaning one way or another about Evans? What do you want to specialize in/what's your interest area? Any other background info you want to share. I'd love to get to know one another a little better as I myself am struggling with making a decision. A bit about me: I also applied and have been accepted to Berkeley's Environmental, Science, Policy and Management PhD program, and Columbia University's SIPA MPA in Environmental Science program (I cast a wide net). As is kinda obvious from the other programs I applied to I'm interested in environmental policy, which was my big draw to Evans, as well as the concurrent degree option (I also applied to the UW FES MS program and think I got in- haven't heard officially, but was invited to a "prospective student visit day"). I grew up in the Seattle area but currently live in Utah. I'd be happy to talk about Seattle and PNW in general if folks have any questions on that as well. Anyway, hope some other recently admitted folks find this and want to connect! Looking forward to talking to y'all!
  5. Hi every one, I created this thread to share our results and our background and probably level of stress 😱
  6. Hello everyone! I am applying for Masters in Construction Management for Fall 2020. I am an International Student with a Bachelor's degree in Architecture. I am looking into applying at: 1. Purdue University 2. Arizona State University 3. University of Washington 4. Georgia Institute of Technology Can someone who knows about any of the courses please tell me the following: a. What is the overall course experience like? (if you have/are enrolled in it) b. What are the internship opportunities like? c. Are campus placements available? What companies do Graduates aim for after program completion? What is the average base salary? d. What is the batch size? Roughly how many people who have an education in architecture a part of your batch? I know I have asked too many questions. But if you have ANY information on any of the questions, please answer.
  7. Hello! I applied to the Core SLP MS program at the University of Washington for Fall 2020 admission. This is definitely my reach school, but they have everything I want in a program. One of my professors who wrote my LOR also pushed me to apply, so I figured I'd shoot my shot. I also noticed that in the last three years, applications to the Core SLP program has decreased from 262 applicants (FA17) to 186 applicants (FA19). Their range of GPAs and GRE scores are wide, but on average applicants from last year had a 3.82 cum, 3.89 last 90 credits; GREs 4.5W, 154Q, and 158V. (https://sphsc.washington.edu/master-science-ms) The department states that there is no minimum GRE and that they view all applications, but I know UW is competitive. My SHS GPA is 3.94, but I have low GREs and a low cum. I have a plethora of relevant experience and great LORs. I was hoping to get some insight from anyone who has been admitted in the previous years or is a current student on what my chances are. Since it is my reach school, I'm trying not to get my hopes up, but like I said this school is everything I could dream of in a graduate program. I have a pretty crappy first two years of transcripts from community college, but have drastically improved my grades and experience since then. In addition, I would love any tips/comments from current UW SPHSC students on what the program is like! 3.94 major, 3.26 cum, 3.66 last 90q/60s credits 146Q, 146V, 4.0W First-generation student Recipient of university SHS scholarship junior year for department leadership, academic success and community outreach Year and a half of ABA experience working with clients on top of balancing classes Current year-long internship with an organization that helps families impacted by autism 3 month weekly internship/volunteer under an SLP in the stroke unit at a rehabilitation hospital 4 month weekly volunteer experience as a classroom assistant in an early-toddler learning center Year long weekly volunteer as a "reading buddy"; reading to at-risk students at an elementary school President position in a speech & hearing RSO that presents on behalf of the profession to students in medically-underserved and rural areas NSSHLA member/multicultural club member Certificate from a two-year, federally-funded multidisciplinary program that focuses on training future professionals to transform rural healthcare My letter of intent/personal history statement mentions the family challenges I've overcome that was demonstrated through my previous academic performance. Entering this field has totally changed who I am as a student and as a person. I hope admission committees look at more than just numbers. Thank you and good luck to everyone!
  8. Now that announcements have been made, it's down to figuring out where to go! I've been accepted into the SLP masters programs at UW Seattle, Western Washington, Utah, and UC-Boulder. And while getting so many acceptances is wonderful, it's both a blessing and curse... Is there anyone out there that is attending these programs? I'm a current post-bac at UW so I have a little idea of what the department is like, but I would be so appreciative if anyone has any insight into the clinical experience, academic workload, life living in those cities, etcetera. Thank you in advance!
  9. Hello! I'm an international student applying to MA programs in rhetoric and composition. I got 2 MA-only offers (which I've declined), and 2 MA --> PhD offers, from Penn State and UW. The MA-PhD offers are the ones I am still considering. This morning I woke up to an e-mail from the DGS of the University of Washington saying that they can now offer me funding for 5 years. I was originally on the waitlist for funding, with only a "small chance" of getting it. Now the funding comes in the form of a fellowship for the spring quarter of my first year, and TAship for the rest. It's upwards of 20,000 for 9-month academic year and includes health insurance. I'll be teaching 1 class per quarter. The problem is, I had just decided on accepting Penn State's offer before this happened. I was just about to formally accept, but this sudden funding offer from UW just threw me off-balance and now I don't know what to do. Penn State doesn't offer me funding for the MA, but I have funding from my government for the 2-year MA. It's USD 1,500 per month (a total of USD 18,000 per calendar year), though it will only kick in next year, so I've deferred my Penn State offer to 2019. And Penn State told that if I'm allowed to proceed to their PhD program, there will be funding for 4 years, though I'm not told how much that's gonna be for me. Meanwhile, admission Previously, I decided against UW because of some concerns I had after talking to some of their grad students. A student said that the course offering for rhet/comp was kind of limited, and that there had been cases of students having difficulties with finding dissertation committee or getting time for advising because the professors were overwhelmed. I've also heard tales about the competitive and sometimes toxic atmosphere of the cohort/program. Penn State, on the other hand, has a stellar reputation for rhet/comp, offers really interesting and varied coursework, and has this mentoring program where I'll be matched up with 2 more senior grad students and a faculty member. The program also seems to have a more supportive and friendly culture. The good thing about UW is their location. As an international student, I feel like I'll be more comfortable in a big city with good public transportation system, more diversity, and what I hear is a more progressive political view. Not to mention its natural beauty! Besides that, their funding offer allows me to start school this year, while going to Penn State means I will have to wait for my government funding next year. However, though it's good to start as soon as possible, accepting their funding offer might mean that I'll have to give up my government fellowship, which is a prestigious program that offers quite a good networking opportunity with the people that matter in my country. Moreover, I've personally gotten so used to thinking that I'll leave next year that the prospect of leaving this year scares me a bit. My boyfriend was planning on resigning next year so that he can come and stay with me for a month or so as I adjust to my new life, but going this year will be difficult if not impossible for him. I'm afraid that leaving so soon will strain my relationship with him, something that I don't want because he's an important support system for me. Both schools fit reasonably well with my research interest, though I suspect that Penn State will have more support for me if I do decide to be in the rhet/comp path as planned. I realize that I'm very fortunate to be having this problem, but still, it's literally 3 days before April 15. UW has given me more time until April 23 to accept or decline, but that's still so soon. Any advice will be much appreciated! If you have more info about the two programs that I should consider, please also feel free to share it. I didn't get a chance to visit either school, so any info will be very useful to me. Sorry if this is long, and thanks for reading!
  10. Hi all. I recently got an admit (big surprise) from University of Washington's Computational Linguistics Master's degree. Do any of you have more information on it? How is the course, job placements, research etc? I am from India and primarily looking for a job + H1B visa in an ML/NLP job profile. Thanks
  11. I’m attending an admitted students day this week at University of Washington and I’m wondering what I should wear. Even though I’ve already been admitted, do I still need to wear “interview level” clothes?
  12. Hey all, Has anyone heard anything (interview/rejection/acceptance) from the developmental PhD program at University of Washington? I haven't been contacted by this program in any capacity since I sent in my application. I didn't get an interview invite though so I assume I'm rejected, but I wanted to know if anyone else that applied has heard anything. I've been checking the results survey page regularly and nothing for developmental comes up under UW for this cycle. It would just be nice to get an idea of what's happening so I know how to move forward with my decisions/plans. I almost want to email my PI/the department to ask if I'm still being considered, but I know that can come off as pushy. Thanks in advance!!
  13. 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?!
  14. Has anyone heard from University of Washington regarding departmental scholarships for the MedSLP track yet? I know they said they’d notify departmental aid candidates by March 23rd but I’m wondering if people have already heard back.
  15. Just throwing this out there for any other UW MHCI+D applicants for 2017. As you all know, apps were due on Jan 12th so we have a little while to wait! I only applied to MHCI+D, but this could be a discussion area for applicants of similar programs (HCDE, etc) to vent/rant/discuss as well
  16. I'm only have not heard back from Bloomsburg so far but with their accreditation in question right now I most likely would not attend. I have been wait listed at Montclair. UW's program was discontinued. and I have been accepted to Salus after my interview and the Addelphi/Hofstra/St. John's program has also accepted me! Does anyone one have any pros or cons for these two schools? Or any insight on why UW eliminated the AuD program?
  17. Hi guys, a prospect who wants to purse a BE/BME PhD degree here. I would like to ask if anyone knows in great details on the pros and cons of the Bioengineering program at the University of Washington (Seattle) and Georgia Tech. Which bioengineering disciplines are the two schools strong at? Which of the two would you rather choose to purse your PhD, and why? (history?, strong fields/faculty member, funding, weather, etc.) I really appreciate your help!!! Thank you in advance
  18. Hello all, I was wondering if anyone could offer insight on career services for MPA/MPP students at the University of Washington's Evans School and Georgetown's McCourt School -- specifically, how well-networked each is in New York. I currently live in the city, and hope to return here after graduation, but it seems that graduates of each school tend to stay nearby (in Seattle and D.C., respectively). I assume the Georgetown name would carry more weight on the East Coast, though I have no hard data to back up that intuition. (NYU Wagner would have been my first choice, but no funding makes things difficult. Results are pending from Columbia SIPA, though my video essay was not anywhere near what it should have been.) Thanks for any advice you may have!
  19. Hi guys, I recently got admitted to the MS Biostats (Thesis track) program at University of Washington, Seattle. I tried to look up the school website for details about how successful past international students who graduate from the same program are in terms of job seeking. I did not find much. My questions are 1. Is this program a STEM program? 2. Are the most international student who graduated from this program able to find jobs in the US? What is the job placement rate? P.S. I am an international student from China. I am getting my Bachelor's degree from UCLA. Thanks for your help in advance!

    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
  21. This topic is for those headed to UW Seattle in summer and fall 2017! Yay! In your first post, please introduce yourself. I'll start: My name is Nikki, and I accepted an offer for the Ph.D. in Educational Psychology focusing on human development and learning sciences. I am moving to Seattle with my husband and two kids (4 and almost 2) sometime in the summer from CA. We hope to secure graduate family housing asap!
  22. I'm fortunate enough to have been accepted into both Harvard and the University of Washington's PhD programs for biostatistics. I'm not entirely sure whether I want to go into academia or industry; while UW has a reputation for being much more rigorous/theoretical, I'm fairly confident you can go either direction in both programs if you make the appropriate curriculum/research choices. A lot of the people in my life are pushing for Harvard-- but the most often cited reason is that the lay prestige of Harvard is that much greater (which would come into play especially if I went into industry) and the opportunities to network and so forth in the non-tech sector are better in the Harvard/the Boston area. Fair points, to be sure. But does anybody in this forum have any thoughts about the pros/cons of either of these two programs, or about the value of attending a school with more lay prestige? (Once again, this is really the nicest of possible dilemmas and I realize I'll probably be fine wherever I end up.)
  23. Hi, I am Umair from Pakistan. I have a funded offer (Fulbright) for a Phd in Public Policy for Fall 2017. In my submission plan (where Fulbright commission applied for me), unis included Arizona State University, Uni of Texas at Dallas, Uni of Washington- Evans, Syracuse Maxwell, and CMU Heinz. My background is a bit on the low side, an undergrad from a top ranked uni here in Pakistan (but obviously unknown there in the US) with a CGPA of 2.83, where I studied Business Management/ Information Systems. I did a postgrad from Institute of Development Studies at University of Sussex UK, High Merit but not a distinction. 2-3 conference papers, a research project going on. GRE scores verbal 162 quant 164 AWA 4.5. Graduated in 2014. so 2-3 years of experience. I have been offered admission from Arizona State University and UT Dallas while Udub & Syracuse have already sent out a rejection. Have not heard from CMU. I wanted to know if you people have any advice on this. My interests are in social policy/ health policy or a bit of IT policy (for CMU only). My essays were generally good, references were OK too. But no elaborate research plans/ focus. I am much afraid of ending up unemployed etc. after I am done. How is the reputation of ASU (SPA) or UT Dallas? Any comments please. Should I go for Arizona State or UT Dallas, if I get rejected from CMU as well, which most probably I will given my profile. I am motivated and ambitious to go for a PhD but I am also afraid I might even fail to complete (due to my weak background specially in calculus/ linear algebra/ statistics/ econometrics. Though I have had courses in all of these 4 mentioned subjects. I am willing to put in the hard miles to get through but doubts always keep coming back. I thought udub evans will admit me but they also din't. And I heard comprehensive exam thingy at ASU IS SCARY!!! Lots of applicants pull out at that stage. Any comments guys. Any help much appreciated and desperately needed. Thanks.
  24. I applied Master of Design in UW, does anybody know the admission rate of this program?
  25. 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) Japan Studies program for a full MA. No mention of funding. Now, to be honest, I'm still waiting on Stanford to reply, but I know that I'm not top-pick priority stuff here. I love Chicago's program. The EALC was my top choice. I wasn't overly surprised to be rejected. Course-wise and academic-wise, Chicago fits my goals and ideas for my research. That all being said, I'm very intimidated by the prospect of living there (Chicago), and the cost of the MAPH is like 17,000 more than UW since I live in-state--even after the 18,000 tuition waver/grant/thingy! That all being said, I love Seattle, and the JSIS would fit me reasonably well and allow me to study abroad. No, the courses aren't as perfectly tailored to my goals, but I would be able to accomplish my goals without incurring so much debt (and live in a place I'm comfortable and happy in). As far as Asian Studies, UW is a fantastic school. It also might potentially allow me TA work, though that's not guaranteed. First question: What's your opinion? Second question: Would it be rude/stupid/impertinent/etc. to approach the head of Japan Studies at UW with the information that I've been offered $18,000 tuition waver at UChicago in the hopes that I might earn myself some help and that maybe they might throw a bone my way? If no, why not? If yes, what would be the most tactful way to do that?
