  1. Just wondering if anybody has heard back yet from UBC's School of Community and Regional Planning (SCARP)? I applied to their MCRP program and was told they start getting back to admitted applicants in early March. Haven't seen any 2018 posts in the results search but I thought I may as well ask here. If not, have any of you applied to the program as well? Or former/current students who may know if I have a chance? Haha, sorry, just a bit anxious along with everyone else here. Undergrad (Political Science) GPA: 3.8 (4.33 scale) MA (Political Science) GPA: 3.7 (4.0 scale) Presentations: 4 Pu
  2. Hi! I am beginning the application process for the upcoming application process for urban planning programs, to enter in fall of 2020. I'm a little unsure of where I stand, whether I have a good shot at the schools I am applying to or whether I should try applying to less competitive programs. I would really appreciate your help in letting me know your assessment! Some background about myself: I attended (on academic scholarship) a mid-tier state school that has about a 55-60% acceptance rate, where I graduated from in 2018 with two BA degrees in non-planning social science fiel
  3. Hello, I have recently been informed about my nomination for a Fulbright foreign student scholarship in the US. In a couple of weeks I will be meeting someone from the Washington to talk about my school choices and my potential placements, so I could use some advice about the best schools to go for. As you all may know, I only get to pick 4 schools, only one of which can be Ivy league or a top school, and only two can be in a major city. To give you a bit of a background story about me, I have : - A BA and MA in architecture - An MA in Urban planning - 1 y

  6. Hi anyone out there applying to the Urban Planning programs for fall 2018? I applied to University of Illinois, Chicago, University of British Columbia, University of Colorado Denver, UMass Amherst, and Portland State. I've been admitted CU Denver, UMass Amherst, and UIC but I am still waiting on the others. No news on funding for UMass Amherst yet, and confirmed no funding for UIC and a small scholarship for Denver. Where have you applied? What news? Any schools you are particularly anxious to hear from? I am anxious to hear from PSU as people have begun to get acceptances and I have h
  7. I know this is unlikely as it's a very small school, but I'm wondering if there are any other applicants to Vancouver Island University? I've applied to the Master of Community Planning program. Ideally, I'd love to know if anyone who has also applied has heard anything, but their admissions process seems pretty consolidated, so even if you've applied to a different graduate program - have you heard back yet? Many thanks!
  8. Hi All! I am a recent graduate (c/o 2016) interested in pursuing a Masters and/or PhD in Urban Planning in Fall 2018 (Interested in merging Public Health and Analytics - Using City/Regional data to create healthier spaces) Undergrad Major: Global Health and Environment, 3.39 GPA (3.76 major GPA) GRE: Haven't taken it yet, but I'm a decent test taker and will probably score in the upper 70s or mid/lower 80 percentile) Programs: Columbia GSAPP's MSUP (Urban Analytics), UC Berkeley, I have spent the past few months interning at public health organizations (domestic & internation
  9. Hey everyone! I thought I'd start a thread for those applying to urban / regional / community planning masters programs for Fall 2017. We can share thoughts on programs, application stats, acceptance/rejection dates, funding, etc. I don't know too much about all the planning programs, but right now I'm thinking I'll apply to the programs at Queen's (SURP), UofT (MScPl), Waterloo (MA/MES), and Ryerson (MPl). Let me know your thoughts!
  10. Hello. I'm currently a senior at an American university, pursuing two BAs (one in Geography, one in Urban Studies and Planning). I'm getting ready to apply to graduate school, and the more I think about, the more I realize Europe might be a strong option for me, particularly Germany or the UK. I want to get a Master's degree in Urban Planning or a related field, with a specific focus on commuter railroad administration. Essentially, I want to be an urban planner who specializes in public transportation. When it comes to infrastructure, Europe is just plain better in this regard (I live in a ci
  11. Greetings from Berkeley! The College of Environmental Design is now accepting applications for two immersive summer programs in City Planning and Urban Design through TUESDAY, JUNE 1. [IN]CITY is a cohort within the Summer [IN]STITUTE in Environmental Design that introduces students to the study and practice of urban planning through the lens of sustainability. By attending daily lectures, media sessions, site visits and engaging in studio work, participants acquire the skills necessary to inform in-depth recommendations, analyses and proposals. The program is designed to
  12. Hi all, I'm an international relations major who speaks a few lesser-known languages with several years in management consulting under my belt, and I'm planning to apply to urban planning/public policy programs this fall. I'd like my classes to have a strong international focus as well as give me a solid understanding of quantitative (statistics) skills and technical (GIS, data management, data visualization using R, Python, etc) skills, as I didn't get these in undergrad either because they didn't mesh with my qualitative studies or were too stovepiped at the time in the engineering/math
  13. Hi gang! Never too early I guess to start the application process!! Planning is in our nature, after all Thought I would start this thread so that we would all be able to connect. These are the schools I am considering: San Jose State University University of California Irvine University of Hawaii Manoa Cal Poly San Luis Obispo Cal Poly Pomona University of Colorado Denver Rutgers University - New Brunswick University College London A little bit about me: California native who attended undergrad at CU Boulder for Environmental Studies, co
  14. Hi everyone, I'm interested in hearing your thoughts on a dual-degree at Harvard with the Graduate School of Design (GSD) for Urban Planning and the HKS' MPP or MPA. Seems like the GSD skills would be more niche, so perhaps getting more general policy skills through the MPP (negotiation, economics) would be a good complement. I know the MPA is more flexible but tends to produce more administrative/managerial positions than policy analysts. Anyone who's in the same boat or has completed the dual-degree? Is it worth the extra year to complete in exchange for having two degrees, and wh
  15. I figure its safe to make this now. Anyone else apply to PhD urban planning programs this cycle? MURP applicants welcome as well. I applied to USC, UCLA, UC Irvine, UI Chicago and Michigan's PhD programs. Got rejected from UCLA. I suspect USC will begin releasing decisions this or next week. USC Price has already begun releasing decisions for its Public Policy program. Anyone else have any luck?
  16. This is my first posting on Grad Cafe, so here it goes.... I'm applying to urban planning programs that have a transportation policy focus. Right now, I am definitely applying to UNC- Chapel Hill, USC, UCLA, and University of Maryland. The first three programs are all housed in the schools' public affairs, policy, or arts and sciences schools. Maryland, however, is based in the School of Architecture. I'm much more of a policy guy, and U-Maryland's curriculum has a strong policy focus. However, the curricula at other architecture-based schools I researched, such as Harvard and UPenn, have
  17. I have applied to a ton of school just as everyone has throughout the forums. I believe I am a great candidate, but I am not familiar with this process of announcements at all!! I know this may seem trivial and all, however, I was excited that the university even sent me some information. I received a letter inviting me to the Meet and Greet Yet it did state that if you were waiting for admittance they understand....... So am I over thinking it??? Does it mean anything???

  19. According to the eligibility requirements: "Applicants must have at least two years of professional work experience (after college) in their field of specialization." From: http://www.fulbright.org.ph/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&catid=5:pages&id=14:graduate-student-program I worked for 2 years in GIS and would like to take up Urban Planning for grad school. I'm turning to the Fulbright Scholarship for support. Given my work experience, will it find me eligible? Any thoughts will be very much appreciated.
  20. Hi guys, I am an international student from Nepal and came to this website after another friend applying to grad schools highly recommended it. Nothing relevant to me was showing up when I was searching for Urban Planning in this forum so I figured I would write this post. Here's my problem, I really need to find 2 safety schools and I was hoping I could get some recommendations. I know it sounds vague but since MURP doesn't have rankings for schools I really can't tell where I'm competitive. Here's my Bio: Interest: Community Development, Social Policy, International Development
  21. Is there anyone willing to review a first draft of an SOP for a Master's in Urban Planning? I could really use some advice to see if I am on the right track. It's only 800 words, if that helps.
