  1. Hi! Does anyone apply for Upenn MBDS (Master in Behavioral and Decision Sciences) for this Fall 2022? I know it's a bit too early to ask around whether someone has got the offer but I want to create this thread for all the applicants so that we can exchange updates/news. I applied for the regular round and impatiently waiting for the response Do you guys apply for other similar programs??
  2. Confused between UC Berkeley and UPenn. Cost is pretty similar with scholarships and such. Looking for the one that will give access to better job opportunities not just in US but across the world. Any opinions?
  3. Hello! Has anybody applied to UPenn's Master's of Behavioral Science Program for 21-22?
  4. Anyone else apply to/hear back from the exec MHC program at penn? Had my interview last Tuesday and am waiting for a decision letter.
  5. 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 schools only have PhDs and only a few offer MA. So for now, I am considering Columbia (MODA), NYU IFA, Williams, and UChicago (MAPH but it's only one year ;( so don't know if it's a good idea). I am struggling in deciding whether I should also apply to UPenn, because I feel they don't have a lot of classes on modern/ contemporary art and theories (?) Although I see 2-3 faculty who have similar research interests that I would like to work with.. I would really appreciate if anyone can give me some info about UPenn's program and any school/ application suggestions or just general advice !!
  6. 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.
  7. 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 advance.
  8. 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!
  9. 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?
  10. 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!
  11. 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 NYU and UPenn seem to have pretty good professors and courses that have such focus, but was just wondering of more. Since first finding this site I keep on hearing a lot about Boston University and Courtauld. Thanks for the responses!
  12. 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 and in a class that covered some basic vba programming and database knowledge were quite good (4.0, 3.7, 3.7) - I did a special program with an integrated trainee program at a big industrial corporation besides my studies => I usually had to work during exam phase and had to study in the evening or take a vacation to focus on my exams; I also had to take additional exams for my professional education and earn some additional credits during my first few semesters to cope with the high workload during my last semester (part-time job, thesis, classes); the good thing is: I've gained a lot of work experience in various departments and I got the chance to work abroad (in Europe) for two months - I also spent a semester abroad in China and took two Chinese classes at university (only got credits for one of them) - Apart from my job and my international experiences, my extracurricular activities are not very exciting - After my bachelor's, I got a job offer at the company I did my trainee program at an I'm now working there as a sales controller What do you think of my chances to get admitted if I reach a good GRE score? I'm just not sure if it even makes sense for me to get prepared for the GRE if I will be rejected anyway because of my GPA.
  13. Can you guys please read my personal statement and tell me how it is or what you would change. Upenn MCIT personal statement.docx
  14. I got admitted into the Master of Science programs of these two schools, majoring in Computer Science... Any advice on which one to choose? 😃
  15. 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?
  16. 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?
  17. 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 any program can rotate or get their PhD in any lab.". This is really confusing because both these programs appear to have very different applicant numbers, acceptance rates and international student intake. Whats really different between these programs then? I hope a current UPenn student or someone who had applied to UPenn clarify this. Thanks
  18. 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!
  19. 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 research lab on campus since January that focuses on youth and community development, doing two major projects at a Trenton full-service elementary school DBT infused group work with 4th graders Mindfulness First author of an accepted Eastern Psychological Conference presentation submission I guess I'm just trying to figure out how competitive these MSW programs are & what my chances are? also, if anyone wants to review my previous statement, lmk (: real rough.docx
  20. 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 very grateful for your suggestions! Good luck to everyone!
  21. 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 Philadelphia and I'm less keen on Baltimore, although I think it would be fun to try to live in for a bit. People (grad students and faculty) at both programs seem very down to earth, happy to be there, nice, and encouraging, and both programs have a great community of structural biologists. Based on this, how much should I prioritize the city I'm living in vs. the program itself, or vice versa? Thanks in advance!
  22. 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.
  23. Hey guys! (First post) Program: Masters in EducationGRE Score: VR:152 Q:160 AWA:3.5 (I will be taking it again)GPA: 7.8/10 undergraduate Work Experience: 2 years with Teach For India after my undergraduation Undergrad/Grad Institution (Public, Private, Ivy, etc..): One of the best universities in India with an Economics major I am interested in pursuing my masters in education policy and I am looking at HGSE, Standford and UPenn (in that order) as of now. I would love some tips for my SOP, schools which I can apply to and the kind of work experience which Ed.M. looks for. Should I get more work experience and maybe apply in 2021? I am especially keen on HGSE's EPM and L&T Program. Thank you!
  24. 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.
  25. 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) admitted with $15,000 scholarship NYU MA in Education and Social Policy - admitted with $500 fellowship at Education and Social Policy Institute Background about me: I'm an international student. My interests lie in the role of education policy as a tool for mitigating inequality in society. I hope to work in a think tank in the US after graduation. I'd appreciate any help, especially from people who have experience in any of these programs, on sorting out which programs best suit me. As an international student from a developed country, I don't qualify for many scholarships other than the merit-based scholarships offered at admission and am concerned about investing in a degree that will not maximize my employment potential in the long term. I'm also happy to answer questions as well, if anyone has any about the admissions process!
