  1. Hi All! I just discovered the forums here recently and have found the posts really helpful. I am planning to apply to MA programs in Art History for admission in Fall 2022. My interest is global modern/ contemporary art, with particular focus on post-war American art and modern/ contemporary East Asian art. I am interested in critical theory on race and gender, post-colonial studies, and philosophy of art. I have decided to apply to Masters instead of PhDs and doing research on grad schools in these months. I am primarily considering schools in the U.S. and realized that most of top scho
  2. Hello! Has anybody applied to UPenn's Master's of Behavioral Science Program for 21-22?
  3. Hi all, As some of you may know the UPenn Fels program received a complete makeover during the past two years and began admitting new students for fall 2020 after a hiatus last year. I am really looking for those with knowledge to provide insight on how the program has changed and information on how the program is looked upon in the MPA/MPP community. There seems to be very little information about the new program and previous quality insights are from old posts in 2012/2013. Thanks in ahead.
  4. I have got admits from both the programs. CMU is offering 40K in scholarship while UPenn is offering 24K. The cost comes down to almost the same amount.(60K CMU vs 50K UPenn) I'm confused on the following parameters - 1. Job prospects being an international student 2. Coursework rigour and the skills I would get 3. UPenn has a internship in the last semester and seems to have a lot of opportunities in Philly. 4. Networking opportunities My primary aim to apply to these courses was to shift towards a career in public policy or related areas. Thank you in adv
  5. Does anyone know if Penn GSE has sent out emails for interviews? I applied for the PhD in Education Policy program and haven't heard anything yet. Thanks!
  6. Hi everyone! Just throwing some thoughts out into the void, seeing if anyone else is waiting on Penn GSE Higher Education master's decisions. I'm a little confused if we should expect to wait 4-6 weeks after the priority deadline (February 15) or not. It seems like last year some people heard back starting the last week of February, a year to the day (gulp!) Anyone have thoughts?
  7. Does anyone know if Penn GSE has sent out emails for interviews? I applied for the PhD in Education Policy program and haven't heard anything yet. Thanks!
  8. Hi there, so I am currently trying to apply to an MA program in Art History. Currently, I'm looking at NYU, Williams, Bard, UPenn, SAIC, and Columbia. I'm getting a bit nervous since my BA was in Anthropology with a minor in Classical Civilizations. My focus was in Roman and Greek Art so I did take a good amount of art history classes. The problem is I want to switch over to contemporary art with a focus on social movements. Is that going to be hard to achieve? Also would anyone happen to know any professors/programs that center on contemporary art with a focus on social movements? I know that
  9. Hi! I'm really interested in the MCIT (on campus) at UPenn, but I guess it might be pretty tough for me to get accepted. I'm from Germany and I have recently finished by bachelor's in business studies. I don't know my official GPA score yet, because I haven't had any transcript evaluation done so far, but my grade should be equal to a GPA of 3.4 (maybe slightly higher like 3.44). According to my bachelor's certificate I was among the top 8.2% students of that degree (out of 1900), but I don't know if that's good enough. Some more facts about me: - My grades in both of my maths classes
  10. Can you guys please read my personal statement and tell me how it is or what you would change. Upenn MCIT personal statement.docx
  11. I got admitted into the Master of Science programs of these two schools, majoring in Computer Science... Any advice on which one to choose? 😃
  12. 3rd Decision - 2nd admit 1st - NYU MS in Biotechnology and Entrepreneurship - Accepted 2nd - University of Wisconsin Madison -Rejected 3rd - Johns Hopkins University - MS in Biotechnology - Accepted as a Conditional Student. Should I wait for decisions from Columbia(MA Biotechnology), UMich Ann Arbor ( MS in Human Genetics) and UPenn( Masters in Biotechnology) or just go for JHU? JHU MS in Biotechnology is a course under AAP. I've heard mixed reviews regarding these courses, since they are part time. As an International student , will It be good for me to go for something like this?
  13. So I've just got an Admit for the SCMP Masters at UPenn. In this program the foundation courses are the same as that of the Data Science Courses and hence are very good. But the other 5 courses are on numeric computation which look very promising but on the Catalog it shows alot of prerequisites for each of these (specifically mechanical courses). Can any current grad provide a feedback on this course?
  14. Hi everyone ! I'm a Master's student applying this cycle. I'm really confused about the program system at UPenn. I'm primarily interested in working with faculty at the Penn Epigenetics Institute at the Perelman School of Medicine. I'm not quite sure which program to apply to, can you rotate in any lab in UPenn regardless of which program you get through? Does that mean that the BGS and BGG are different only at an administrative level and not at a faculty affiliation level .ie. no faculty is uniquely associated with one program? I had written to a PI and he just said "Student of a
  15. Does anyone know when the application decisions is going to be sent out? On their website, they said 4-6 weeks but on grad admission website, they said Jan.15th, 2020. Anyone knows anything? Thanks!
  16. Hi! I'm currently a senior at TCNJ. I'm a Psych/Public Health dual major. I'm just going to list some of the things that will hopefully make me stand out, but I'm also going to attach my (really, really rough and in progress so don't judge) CV for more detail and stuff: my gpa is a 3.93/4.0 Phi Beta Kappa Lots of work with diverse individuals due to TCNJ's proximity to Trenton 120 hours in Fall 2017 at a nonprofit in Trenton that works with adolescents of different demographics (LGBTQ, homeless, etc) with emotional and behavioral challenges I've been in a
  17. Hi everyone! Could you give some advice about choosing a Master's degree in Biotechnology between Upenn or Northwestern? Or could you share some of your experiences in either of the two programs? I really don't know where to go… About myself, I prefer to pursue a PhD after the Master's degree (for now) instead of entering the industry. But I've heard that the program in Upenn is more industry-oriented, and I haven't gathered enough information about NU...Most of my information comes from the program websites, so I would like to hear more about your opinions and experiences! I will be
  18. Any advice would be greatly appreciated! I'm deciding between the biochemistry/molecular biophysics program at UPenn and the biochemistry (BCMB) program at Johns Hopkins. My issue is this: I feel as though I like the Hopkins program better (more researchers I'm immediately interested in from the faculty page [10 or so here vs. 3ish at Penn], more students, more professional development opportunities), though that isn't to say that I don't love the BMB program at Penn (I do like that there's a little more biophysics in this program). However, when it comes to cities, I really love Philade
  19. Anyone on this forum that is applying to or going to UPenn? I just put down my deposit and excited that I will be attending their program. It has been my first choice.

  21. Fiancee is faced with the two choices. Tried to find resources online to compare pros/cons and career focus for graduates but couldn't find any so I'm turning to the lovely people on thegradcafe. Would anyone be kind of enough to outline what type of candidates go to each school and the pros/cons? Thank you in advance.
  22. Hi! I've applied to the following programs, and I was hoping to get some insight into which programs were worth the inve$tment - in terms of employability / phD prospects afterwards! Would love to hear any feedback! Thank you!! Stanford MA in POLS (Policy, Organization and Leadership Studies) - pending Columbia University MA in Education Policy - pending University of Pennsylvania MsEd in Education, Culture and Society - admitted with $10,000 scholarship and option to apply for GA (max. $3,500) Georgetown University MA in Educational Transformation - (unofficially
  23. Does anyone know if UPenn has send out all interview invites for linguistics graduate admissions yet? Do they notify students of rejection too?
  24. Hi all! Looking for some help here. I've scrolled through different threads re: SP2's admissions interview and have seen different things. I've seen that it usually takes ~3 weeks after submission to get the scheduling email. I submit my application on Saturday, Dec 1 and heard back two days later on Monday, Dec 3. I'm assuming this is good, or is this just because I submit so far in advance of the deadline? Also, any advice about the actual process would be helpful! I'm curious to know how much of the interview is focused on weaknesses/gaps vs. positive
  25. I’m currently in my foundation year of my masters program for social work. I’m at University of Pennsylvania and having a very tough time here. I believed this would be an amazing environment but its been anything but that. I’m contemplating transferring grad schools to somewhere I feel welcomed and comfortable as well. I want to be happy.. anyone have any recommendations for schools to look into?
