  1. Hi folks - thinking of applying to Yale's Jackson School's Masters of Global Affairs program this fall, as the program itself looks pretty interesting and they seem to offer generous funding if you're able to get in. The problem is that I've already been working in Global Affairs/Foreign Policy for about three years and haven't heard much about Jackson and am concerned about its reputation within its field. I am currently living in Canada but would like to stay in the USA and continue working in the peace/security world, but don't want to be at a disadvantage in terms of school name. I am also
  2. Hello! I have narrowed my list down to these two schools and I am trying to make the decision and would love an outside perspective! Wisconsin Madison: Pros: *Tons of labs that interest me, including a relatively famous PI who has shown interest in me *a location that really appeals to me (though I have never been) *good impression during visit days, people had good work life balance, the school seemed very supportive etc. Cons: *stipend seems a little low (even taking into account COL) especially because you have to pay student fees and health i
  3. I recently finished the application season (Masters) and have the following acceptances: UCSD, Duke, Columbia, Boston University, Northwesterm These are amongst others (Yale, Berkeley, Cornell, Michigan, UCLA, etc.) however they were either one year or non-thesis programs, or the university's main focus was not BME so I have decided to throw those out. Again if you think that isn't a wise decision please let me know. I have also been waitlisted at Hopkins, and am looking to accept that should I get in. Anyone familiar with these schools that can help me out? I am looking ve

  5. Hello Everyone, Not sure if this will get out there to anyone, but I am posting in hopes to gain some information or advice for the Yale School of Art MFA Photography department interview. I have an interview for their Photography Graduate program next week and I am just looking for any helpful suggestions or advice anyone is willing to give, as this is my first grad school interview and I am not quite sure what to expect or how the dynamic of the interview is orchestrated. If anyone can help or can recommend someone to talk to, I will be forever grateful. Thank you guys!
  6. Hi everyone, Long time lurker, first time poster. Wondering if anyone could provide some insight on my candidacy for applying to a terminal MA program in history. I feel a little overwhelmed about applying to US schools as a Canadian, and I don't have a GRE score (which, understandably precludes me from many schools). Nonetheless, I'm interested in applying to Yale, NYU, McGill, UBC, and the LSE/Columbia joint MSc program in international history. To be honest, I'm desperate to get some information about where I stand. I know this is hard to answer but I'm trying to ascertain wheth
  7. Does anyone know how the MS program at Yale is? I'm not sure how good the CS department at Yale is.
  8. I am international students from India with an undergrad in Eco. I also have close to 3 years of experience in statistical and development research based domains. Had a good SOP (atleast I like to think so) and okay-ish LoRs. Had a 169 quant score in GRE. I need to decide between Yale IDE and Columbia MA Econ by April second week. Yale has a smaller class size, is cheaper and has a less mathematical course structure (by the looks of it). Columbia might give more opportunities by being in NY, and in general the Econ department seems highly reputed. In the future, I plan o
  9. Hi everyone, I am a student of mathematics and computer science interested in optimization, theoretical computer science, and machine learning. I would really appreciate some of your thoughts on 2 PhD programs I am deciding between -- ECE at UT Austin and CS at Yale. I am an international applicant and ideally wanted to visit both of these (very different) institutes before taking a call, but that just isn't possible now. Thoughts on UT Austin Strong group in ECE and CS departments. Will I be able to work with faculty in CS? Will the large size of the institute prohibit m
  10. Hi! I'm looking to apply to either a Clinical Psych PhD (with a clinical neuropsychology focus) or a Cognitive Neuroscience PhD for the fall 2021 admission cycle. 3.81 undergraduate GPA, honors student, going to do a thesis in the fall that could be applicable to either of these topics, I just need to nail it down with my advisor. I'm planning on graduating in December 2020 with a BA in Psychology, minor in Neuroscience. I have research experience. Currently, I work at a clinic that specializes in OCD and other related disorders as a research assistant. Primarily, I help create presentat
  11. Hi I just applied to 2020 Yale painting MFA program. I forgot to check in the box for the representative work on my portfolio. Does anyone know if this would affect my application in any way? + Is is possible to apply to the same program to fix this issue? Please send help :(
  12. Hi I applied to the Yale mfa painting program just now, but i forgot to check the box for my representative image on my portfolio. Would this affect my application? +is it possible for me to apply again on the same program just to fix this problem? So desperate right now:(
  13. I am currently trying to decide between Yale, Harvard and Duke, and I have the best tuition package by far from Duke. My question is whether the classroom experience is as rigorous as it might be at Harvard or Yale-- assuming Harvard and Yale classroom experiences are all that rigorous. Does anyone have any insight?
  14. Someone I know is trying to decide between a photography MFA at Yale or UCLA. Are there any informed opinions out there, perhaps from current students of these programs or recent graduates? The programs are so nearly equal in his mind – he likes the prestige factor at Yale and prefers to live on the East coast. UCLA has a great program too and he appreciates the interdisciplinary-ness. Yale has a reputation for molding students whereas UCLA seems to operate with a lot more freedom for the student, which he likes. He wants to teach and UCLA offers that opportunity. Both have offered nearly
  15. Hi all, Decision day is right around and wanted this forum's insight on making this decision. Both of the school has offered me equal scholarships ~30k per year, so in case of financial bit, both are equal (I know folks who got more than this). Even though Yale seems to have a loan from university for international students as well to cover the balance of the cost, so that is a plus. However for Energy specialization, program wise Duke seems better. Also, the internship support is better I hear (Stanback and others) but would need further verification on this. I want to primarily go into
  16. I'm looking to do research in cell biology, and trying to decide between my top two choices. Just looking for input on institutional prestige in the medical/biomedical fields - my sense is that Yale overall has greater name value but for medicine and related fields, Hopkins does a bit better. Any advice would be welcome!
  17. Hello everyone! I am new in this Forum so I don't exactly know how it works... But anyway, I am going to explain my situation and see if I can get any help (which I would really appreciate). I am planning to apply to my PhD this fall as an international student. I am from Europe and I did my bachelor there. It is my first time ever applying to an American university, so any advice would be helpful. - Bachelor/Masters in Pharmacy (I put Masters because it takes 5 years, it is considered Bachelor+Master in Europe, and I have a paper that gives it the academic equivalence to Doctor
  18. Hello I am a prospective MPA/MPP/M.Dev student and I have applied to a couple of policy and administration programs for the Fall 2019 session. My grades in my earlier education are not good especially in Statistics and Calculus. I am not too hopeful that I will be getting admits at good colleges this session as my essays were also not upto the mark. I am ready to put in serious efforts for the next year application cycle and I want to start with the prerequisite courses (Stats and Calculus). I was wondering where can I take such courses for which credit are accepted by colleges like
  19. Hey! For those who were asked to interview with their POI for Yale's history PhD, had you spoken with your POI before submitting the application? (I spoke to my POI a lot before submission, and am wondering if I didn't get asked to interview because a) I've already talked to them a bunch, or b) I'm not a competitive candidate for the program) Thanks!
  20. Hello everyone, I am currently an undergraduate student studying History at SUNY Oneonta. My current GPA at SUNY O is 3.93, and I am working for the department chair as a research assistantship (funded work). I have worked as a research assistant for another professor, and I will be working as a teaching assistant next semester. I am also learning Russian and French, and I will be studying abroad in Saint Petersburg. Unfortunately, my academic history is hardly great outside of SUNY Oneonta. I started college when I was 16 at SUNY Delhi. I did 100 level classes with a mix of A's and
  21. I applied for PhD program in Yale F&ES, however, rejected by them. Committee suggested me applying their master degree in Feb 14, the day before the ddl of master application. Thus I submitted my application to MESc, got a waiting list of MESc in Mar 05. Consequently I have heard no news about my application. Is there anyone who is put into waitinglist like me? And I am wondering the statistics about the waiting list students who get admitted in MESc at Yale finally. Thanks~
  22. Help! The decision is right around the corner, and I need to start mentally preparing for this (huge) life change/decision. For anyone who has considered, attended, or decided - where do I pursue my MEM, Duke or Yale? I visited Duke, and I could tell it was a great program. The administration is clearly willing to help students out financially, supportive with research and work opportunities, and they consistently tout their alumni network as one of the best. Many people seem to say Duke really emphasizes building concrete technical skills, and that it might be easier to find a job u
  23. Like most here I'm trying to decide between two great programs. I was accepted to UC Berkeley's Environmental Science, Policy, and Management PhD program with full funding + stipend, as well as Yale's Masters of Environmental Management program with partial funding covering approximately half of my costs. I have several scholarships lined up which could theoretically (if awarded) cover the rest of the costs should I choose Yale-- it would just mean more leg work on my part. I would ultimately like to start an environmental consulting firm to assist Tribes with the development of resource
  24. 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!!
  25. I am really stuck between attending one of these schools to pursue a PhD in organic chemistry and am desperate for some advice! I’m most likely choosing between Stanford and Yale. I came out to Berkeley and am familiar with both the Bay Area and the NYC area. After visiting both schools, I feel more comfortable at Stanford, being that I liked the campus/weather/area more and really connected with the graduate students. Yale was comparable (if not quite as nice) in terms of facilities, although I didn’t resonate with the campus and graduate students as much. I am also not a fan of the col
