  1. so I was accepted into all three great M.A. programs that I applied for. However, right now I have funding for only one and I am doubtful that my external funding with come through for my other two. I want to plan campus visits but I need some counsel. Would you recommend that I visit all 3 even thought some might end up not being financially viable options? I work full time and it will be difficult to use weekends/take days off to travel to all three, not even talking about the cost if I can't be reimbursed at all. Should I just plan to visit the one school that has offered me funding and tha
  2. I am stuck in an airport with nothing else to do and not enough WiFi for Netflix so I figured I would start an advice thread on all things Statistics PhD admissions that I have learned from the process. I wanted to share all the things I wish I knew when I was applying. Anyone else feel free to add to it. I wrote this from a general statistics perspective but some of this probably will be similar in biostats and perhaps even math. Admissions - Where to apply The best indicator of how you will do is looking at the past profiles that are most similar to you. You will unlikely fi
  3. For those who are admitted, could you guys please share info on the dates of campus visits? I think it will be very informative for applicants who are currently on waitlists.
  4. Hey Everyone -- I thought it might be nice to start a thread about campus visits for a few reasons. See if other folks are attending the same visit weekend as you. If you've already toured a campus give some insight and impressions. If it's an interview weekend, what types of questions did you/should you ask, what did they ask you etc. It would also let us connect on the same schools. That being said -- is anyone planning on going to UT- Austin's communications studies weekend in February? It's one of my top choices so I'm definitely going to try to go.
  5. I really did just begin the process of thinking about and researching doctorate programs, so please be gentle when correcting any glaring examples of complete ignorance (although please do correct me). I am an art conservator with a professional background in historical materials (I currently work at a history museum and also work in the conservation of library and archival materials) and an academic background in art history. I am interested in studying the idea of preservation of art and historical materials as a "Public Trust," as written in so many museum and library mission statement
  6. I've seen different comments about graduate students scheduling their own campus visits or interviews, but also other comments that say their visits/interviews have been accepted by the school. I think it would be nice to tour the campuses I'm considering before I apply and maybe meet some of the faculty, but I'm not sure if I have to wait until application season to try and schedule a meeting or visit.
  7. If we all post where we expect to accept or decline, I think it will give some of the folks on waitlists some idea of movement. Where have you been accepted to/waitlisted? What are your top choices?
  8. So I have been accepted to a few programs that would be wonderful. Have narrowed it down to two and am now trying to decide. I dont have to ask questions to impress faculty, more to genuinely get to know the programs and make the best decision but of course I would really like to not get off on the wrong foot. I have visited one but was vastly unprepared for the visit and was knocked off by the implication of some faculty that perhaps I chose the wrong department(ECE rather than CS where my current knowledge and interests is) so made terrible use of the visit day. Later I got accepted an
  9. I've been accepted to Baylor and University of Iowa. Prior to acceptance I went to a visiting students weekend at Baylor, but Iowa accepted me without an interview. Before I make the choice, is it okay to ask to visit Iowa? I'm not sure how to breach the topic, especially travel expense wise- I don't expect them to pay, so how to I ask to visit without asking for handouts? I of course wouldn't complain if they offered to pay, but I also know they are under no obligation. How do I phrase the email? I'm really interested in the program, but money isn't exactly flowing for me. Any and all advice
  10. I've been invited to open house weekend at a great program that I'm really interested in. We just got our itineraries and instead of scheduling our faculty meetings for us, we are asked to pick which faculty we want to meet with and schedule times with them individually. I've already met with my POI multiple times, plus she is on the admissions committee, so I know I'm going to meet with her, but what about everyone else? There's really only one other faculty member who's interests match mine. I feel like I'll come off as aloof if I only meet with one faculty member outside of the admissio
  11. Out of curiosity, how many interview/visits did/will you go on? And are you currently in school, working, etc.? Just want to get an idea of what is typicial.
  12. Okey-doke: So I'm an utter newb at this whole Grad School cult(ure) thing. I've been invited to two Open House/Recruitment Weekend/Admitted Students Day-type thingies (from schools that have both made offers to me), and am seeking advice on what to expect, what sort of questions I should ask while there, and (shallow being that I am) what the frak should I wear?!?! I'm typically a chucks, jeans, and a baggy tank kinda gal.....but something tells me that this garb might not be appropriate for this purpose. I know they can't revoke my admit decision because I look like a schlub, but I figure (OK
