  3. Hi, I'm an embedded software engineer working in the wireless networking domain at one of the leading semiconductor companies in the world. After working here for more than 2 years (~27 months), I have decided to pursue an MS in Computer Engineering. CGPA: 6.67/10 (It might translate to a GPA of around 2.8-2.9) in Electrical and Electronics Engineering. GRE: 163Q/160V/4.0W (I am retaking the GRE again next month for a higher Quant score) TOEFL: 110 (Will be writing it next month. I got a 110 3 years ago but the scores aren't valid anymore). I addition to the above, I've received 4 awards from my team leads for working on some critical areas. I've submitted a paper in an internal company conference (not sure if this would matter in my applications since the work is completely proprietary to the company - so I may not be able to elaborate on it). I also have research experience as a summer research intern at one of the best research institutes for high performance computer architecture, here in India. The problem is that I wasn't particularly consistent in scoring during my undergraduate because of some issues beyond my control. In fact, except for a slight kink (upwards) in my progress during my third year of undergrad, I pretty much took a dive. I applied to grad school right out of college (~2017) and got rejected from all the 7 colleges I applied to. After some careful deliberations, I have come to the conclusion that it may be have been attributed to more than a couple of shortcomings from my applications: Not a strong enough recommendation or statement of purpose. GRE score (I had a 315 (159Q/156V/3.5W) back then) GPA (most obvious defect) Slightly ambitious college choices. Would the profile above be able to offset my GPA shortcoming and give me a short at some good colleges? Graduate studies is an expensive proposition for me. So, I would only be motivated to move forward if I were to get into a college with a strong standing among academic and professional institutions.
  4. Hello! I couldn't find a thread for those preparing to apply for PhDs this year to the US for Fall 2020 admission so I've started this (please point me to a thread if it exists!). This thread is for applicants to get to know each other, ask questions about potential universities, make lists, and most of all: to freak out with. About me: I'm looking at history, gender studies, and south asian studies departments. I am interested in gender and legal history of colonial south asia. I'm an international student, from India. I did my B.A at Bard College, New York and M.A at SOAS. So far I am looking keenly at: Columbia (MESAAS), Cornell, Duke, U Michigan (ann arbor), U. Washington, U Wisconsin-Madison, Rutgers U, UChicago, UTexas Austin. Introduce yourself, your themes, potential unis, and your fears and aspirations! ­čî╗
  5. Hi I graduated with B.E in Biotechnology in the year 2017 from India. I have been working in a computational genetics lab since then. I don't have any publications yet. Might be submitting one by the end of this year. I am aiming for Phd in mathematical biology as that field really interests me. I have done courses in Calculus I and II, Linear Algebra and Differential Equation during my undergraduate studies. It would be great if you could suggest me any universities in the USA which offers this program of study. I would welcome suggestions in this regard, since I don't have a major in mathematics how much it is going to affect my application process. Also, do I stand chance at all for getting an admit(an international student plus not a strong background in mathematics). Really appreciate for reading this! Thanks in Advance!!
  6. Hi, I am a first-year Graduate Student in Chemistry at the University of Illinois Chicago. I got admitted here in Fall 2018. I basically work on MD Simulations. Now I got an offer to study Machine Learning at Cambridge for PhD with a very well-known professor. However, I am somewhat sceptical about moving to UK from USA since I am unaware of the grad life in UK. The monthly stipend at Cambridge is also quite less. Please offer me some advice. I seem clueless right now.
  7. A PhD by publication is more common in Europe. I am expecting a few first authored publication this year in decent journals, but I am not sure of the value of this. Thanks!
  8. Hello everyone. My course of PhD starts in Fall 2019. The university´╗┐´╗┐´╗┐´╗┐´╗┐ is offering me a tuition´╗┐´╗┐´╗┐´╗┐´╗┐´╗┐´╗┐ waiver and TA of $12,400 for 9 months. The total estimated cost is $42,000 and they are providing with almost´╗┐$39,500 including the tuition fee. The rest has been covered by my family and a bit extra. I have already received the I20 which says the funding for a year has been covered . I am worried that I will have to show proof of funding for 5 years of the course, as I have seen in mo´╗┐st of the forums for MS students. So my question is - is it mandatory for PhD students to show documents of funding for ´╗┐5 y´╗┐ears of your course ?
  9. There are more than 4 thousand universities at united states, how to shortlist 6 to 10 universities according to academic profile? like it is not feasible to go through each website of university, is there any smart way to shortlist some universities for engineering category?
  10. I got into SAIS but was rejected by their IDEV program. Tufts offered me their Master of Law and Diplomacy program. I also got into the MA program at the Graduate Institute, Geneva. I am leaning toward SAIS because they have a really good China Studies program but the tuition is extremely expensive. I am also a bit worried about their requirement on economic classes since I can't deal with numbers/graphs. My goal is to have a PhD in IR or work in international organizations after my MA. IHEID fits my research interest and has a lot of connections with different organizations, but I'm not sure whether getting a master's in Europe will hurt my chances of coming back to the States for a PhD? Also, IHEID is less known compared to JHU, so as a non-EU citizen, will it be hard for me to find jobs that sponsors a working visa in the field, or finding a job back to the States/Asia? I am a Chinese student attending an undergraduate program in the US. If there's anyone who was also accepted by/has previously attended those programs, or have knowledge about them, please comment with your suggestions. I would really appreciate it. Gracias~
  11. I got a score of 322 on my GRE (Quants - 166, Verbal - 156 and AWA - 4.0) and 8/9 on my IELTS. I have a college GPA of 8.45/10. I did 1 research internship and am currently working on a project. I am looking to apply for good graduate colleges in the US for my MS in Material Science. I have a couple of LORs and a good SOP. What colleges do you think are within my range?

  15. Hello there. I've managed to apply to Schengen universities for this fall semester and I've got accepted, roughly into 2 of the best among them, thanks to this forum and their guidance. Now there is some serious head-scratching going on here as to which of these 2 I should choose. Their CS department of these 2 universities seem to be very close to each other in terms of merit. However, my ultimate objective is to pursue a PhD or possibly get directly admitted to work in one of the north american countries (USA or Canada), preferably in data science field. With that in mind, which of these 2 universities are better for my goals, In terms of recognition among north american companies and universities? Is it possible for an international student to exchange with a reputable north american university or company while studying in either of these universities?
  16. Hi all, I have the following credentials: Undergrad degree from Canadian University (in progress) Work experience relevant to my field (co-op) Canadian citizenship I want to do a Ph.D. right after my bachelor's degree. Since this is rare in Canada, I was looking at some American universities for their Ph.D programs. Hence, I was wondering, will a USA Ph.D. receive the same equivalency as a Canadian Ph.D. in the Canadian job market? I ask this because I noticed that many students with a Ph.D. from overseas (such as Asia) often find it hard to get a job here because their Ph.D. is not recognized. Any opinions/insights welcome ?
  17. Hi everyone! I'm curious to know if any Americans on here have decided to pursue doctoral studies in clinical psychology in the UK. If so, I'd love to hear more about your story (Were you able to practice in the UK afterward? Did you decide to go back to the US to practice instead? Did you have issues with either of those two routes work eligibility-wise? Etc.). Since this tends to be more of a unique case, "Americans hoping to study/practice clinical psychology in the UK" turns up some pretty murky Internet search results, so I'd love some insight. ?
  18. Hi! I'm new to this forum but have a question about what my options might be for postgraduate studies in counseling psychology. Here's a bit of a background: I'll graduate in May 2019 from Penn State with bachelor's degrees in journalism and psychology with likely around a 3.7 GPA, and I've spent most of my undergraduate career stuck between those two degrees (essentially debating whether I wanted to go to graduate school for psychology or enter into a communications-related job right out of school). For that reason, most of the extracurricular activities/work experience I've had has been in the communications field (for ex., editor at my school's primary media outlet and a corporate communications internship this summer). But after different work experiences and lots of inner debate, I've decided that a degree in counseling psychology would be the most fulfilling career path for me. I wish I could have somehow come to this conclusion sooner, but I'm hoping my choice to have psychology as a second major left me with a few options. I've considered applying to either master's programs or PsyD programs, and I have also considered applying to programs abroad (I spent this past semester in the UK and would apply there). For now, I'm taking steps to prepare for the GRE, but I'm hoping to get some insight/suggestions (possibly from someone who's been in a similar position before where they weren't always sure they wanted to go to graduate school and might not have prepared the same as other psychology students). A potential path I've considered is getting research experience during the summer of 2019 and applying for graduate counseling certificate programs in the UK for the 2019/20 academic year, before applying to a master's or doctorate program. Any insight would help -- thanks!
  19. Which country will be good to pursue MS in Computers, considering political issues regarding foreigners still unstable in the States. PS I am Indian.
  20. I have received acceptance for MA Statistics from Yale and Berkeley. My plan is to do a Phd, whether directly after masters or after some work ex is something I will decide later. while Berkeley has the "better ranked" department, i feel that i would get more individual attention at Yale. Also, Yale will have more diversity. The Bay Area is right there so getting a job after Berkeley. but my dream is to work at NPOs and international orgs (like uN, WHO, BMGF, etc) which are at the east coast. please HELP!!
  21. Hi, I'm hoping to find people currently enrolled in Global Mental Health PhD programs anywhere on the globe. I want to get a sense of the kind of experiences they've had within the program and the balance of cross-cultural perspectives within. On a more logistical note: A sense of how applications are reviewed and received Funding within the program A comparison of GMH approaches and programs. If not GMH, what would be equally appropriate program choices for a person with work and research experience in community/global mental health as well as trauma? (I work as a clinical psychologist in India.)
  22. Applied for MS in CS. So I just received an acceptance from: UNCC GSU Universities yet to reply: UofM UofW (St. Louis) WMU MTU Should I wait or go either one of these? If so, which one???
  23. I have received admits from these colleges for fall 2018
  24. Hi! I am deep in the conundrum most of us must be facing/have faced - the reputation/cost trade-off. I was admitted to the MPP programs at Ford School of Public Policy at UMich with $30k tuition waiver (1/3rd of the tuition), and to the Humphrey School at the University of Minnesota with in-state tuition + $20k (I am an international student, so in-state tuition is a godsend). So my problem is this - Even with the funding, I will rack up a debt of about $60k if I decide to attend Ford (provided I don't land a campus job in the coming semesters). However, the program's reputation is much better than the Humphrey MPP, both within the US and internationally. It also aligns with my interest, gives me the flexibility I desire from the curriculum, and has a wide variety of courses and research I am interested in. At Humphrey, on the other hand, I will have a much smaller debt ($15-20k), but the program is less to my liking, though not so bad as to be rejected entirely. The number of courses offered is fewer, too. My question, thus, is this - Is the Ford MPP actually worth the extra cost I will put into it? Especially since my other alternative brings to cost to a third of the estimate? Thanks!
  25. Seriously confused here. I have very competitive funding at MSU and Peabody. MSU course isn't best suited for me but my advisor is amazing and really well known in the field and in my home country. CRA Peabody course is AMAZING and very much in line with my interests and faculty interests align but I wouldn't have as much support to research in home country. Cambridge and UCL - no funding yet, but thinking about waiting it out. Thoughts?
