Doing a Ph.D. is a really big commitment. 5+ years is no joke. I am not sure I am willing to go that path yet.




GPA: 3.8/5

GRE: 320

TOEFL: 107

1 paper accepted into a Top IEEE conference (ICALT 2018) but I didn't attend because of the very expensive conference fees and travel expenses

2 Papers accepted for publication into a SCOPUS indexed journal

United Nations Online Volunteer of PEOI (Wrote a course material for "Beginning Programming in Java)

Some years of experience as a Software Engineer
Your profile looks impressive for a PhD but since you are not interested in towing that line, I wish you Success in your future endeavors.

Admits so far.

Auburn University (MS) (Grad Coordinator said they are looking for funding for me, said they had budget cuts so nothing is sure)

Bowling Green State University (MS) In state and Out of state Tuition waiver + $10,000.00 Graduate Assistantship stipend

East Tennesse State University (MS) In state and Out of state Tuition waiver - Assistantship decisions will be made next month

University of North Texas (Ph.D) Tuition waiver + Graduate Assistantship



I am just confused right now
Congratulations. Personally I think you should choose UNT. Denton is a northern suburb of Dallas. Dallas is one of the emerging tech hubs with real good paying jobs and openings.
I would want to teach you to game the system but you can always "master out".

Good afternoon...

I’m having issues with WES evaluation.

It’s in regards to to Olevel result.

So my WAEC result is not completed, I failed most of my courses (oops), my NECO as well. In short, I ended up sitting for NABTEB; now the problem is, NABTEB is not getting the verification process right, and WES keep rejecting the olevel result.

Can I use the poor WAEC result either ways? I mean does it have any effect on the overall evaluation of prerequisite and CGpA?

I have searched everywhere but I can’t find information on this.

Hi Javanian, Congratulations on your admit. In as much as you've been convinced by others, the truth is, PhD is not for everyone. In the same US you desire to get a PhD, don't be surprised you'd compete with candidates with BSc for same jobs (though they have other certifications). Many people dropout from the PhD program, others lose motivation to continue as they already have job offers after completing two years (and they'd be awarded a MSc). If your aim for a PhD is to get jobs, I'm sorry you have to change your mindset.

Few months ago, someone here wrote about the journey to his PhD (in Chemistry), I hope you can get the link to his story on the US student visa thread. Be sincere, where do you see yourself in 4 years? Are you ready for the rigours of research? Without having any financial issues, would you still be interested in the PhD? What if you are guaranteed to get a job after the first two years in the US, will you still select the PhD program?

Hello, how are you doing today?

Don't give up just yet, even if the first round of admission has been sent out, some people decline their offers early and they move to the waitlist, some schools also offer some admission after April 15th. So hang in there, I am hopeful for you. Fall 2019,yes we can.

Good evening all. I need you guys help. I'm preparing for GRE, but I plan applying next year April to Youngstown stàte uni Ohio.
The issue is that after my bsc which was in Finance/banking, I grew interest in another career entirely (Agriculture which I'm presently into). My question is that is there a way a can switch to a Masters program in Agriculture or should I just continue on the path of finance Accounting and Economics. And if there is a way I can also get equipped in agriculture while studying other course

Please is there anyone currently preparing for the GRE? Or anyone who can give me useful tips. I have more than one month before my exam date, I understand all the verbal and Quantitative concepts but based on my practice test scores it seems I am not improving. I review my error too. I do better in Quantitative and not in verbal and sometimes vice versa. If you have taken this test before, kindly advise. Thank you. The highest I got in Quant is 155 and verbal 151. All suggestions are welcome.

As a Harvard reject , I concur. Lol. Harvard waited till March to send a nicely worded rejection letter. Now comes the eternal debate whether I am ready to spend 5 years pursuing a degree as against going for a masters.

Applied to a mix of programs for PhD since masters in health/life sciences are barely fully funded
Harvard University (Had to be done grin)- PhD Biological and Biomedical Sciences
Emory University-PhD Cancer Biology
Washington State University-PhD Pharmaceutical Sciences
Purdue University- PhD Medicinal Chemistry and Molecular Pharmacology
Purdue University- PhD Interdisciplinary Biomedical Sciences
University of Illinois UC-PhD Biopharmaceutical Sciences
University of Kentucky- PhD Pharmaceutical Sciences.

Profile:
GPA:3.75/4(Unofficial WES)
GRE: 315 (Q-157, V-158)/4
TOFEL: 109

Started work on back-up schools though. No time cheesy
Update:
Harvard-Rejected-Not surprised.
Washington State-Accepted(fully funded)
Emory University-Rejected. Something to do with insufficient research experience.
Purdue Medicinal Chemistry- Rejected
Purdue Interdisciplinary biomedical Sciences- Waitlist
University of Kentucky- Waitlist
UIC- Rejected. This particular decision was infuriating as I submitted my application before the priority deadline.The office of graduate admissions asked for official transcripts to be mailed to them around the end of December after reviewing my application containing the unofficial transcripts. I did not know that this meant my application was on hold and therefore was not reviewed by the department till February,as my transcripts were delayed due to strike actions in my university.

Hello scholars!!! After waiting endlessly for the update on my PHd application to UA- Fayetteville. I sent an enquiry mail to the grad co-ord Civil dept. He replied that I've been granted admission and will be officially notified very soon. However, they're still searching for funding for me. No one has decided to fund me yet.

This morning, I received a mail from a prof in the dep. who I I sent mail to several months ago on the possibility of securing RA with him. The mail reads: "

Are you still looking for a place for graduate school? Have you published any papers, conference or journal articles? If so, I would be interested in reading them. If not, do you have any technical writing you could share with me? Perhaps something on the brachiopod shell research.

I have attached a paper of mine. Would you mind reading it and giving me your thoughts? I would be interested to know what questions you have after reading it. Either about our methods or future work you think it promotes.

Thank you,

I need your advice on the best way to go, as I do not want to take a wrong step. Pls, I know the mail is not vague but still, I need input from "elders"

Very positive development, I think you're being evaluated for critical thinking and ability to pose research questions. Perhaps, someone else with more research exp in also being considered. Anyway, whatever you decide to send, make sure the plagiarized content is at the barest minimum.

For the paper you will read, you might want to identify gaps and talk about possible options to test and explore those ideas you found. You should thoroughly understand the paper.

You're in already so good luck and congratulations in advance.

Thanks for taking your time to reply. Do you think my final year project thesis will suffice as a technical paper? I've not written nor published any journal.
