  1. I interviewed for COPD on April 20th and haven't heard back. Also, my account never changed to "Pending Interview" or "Being Reviewed". 🤷🏽‍♀️
  2. @NYCMSW They had 5 dates to choose from. The late evening session (6-8 PM) got filled up quickly. I assume it's because most people work full time, and the other available interview dates had mid-day times (2-5 PM).
  3. I got the notification to interview yesterday (4/17). Haven't selected a date yet.
  4. Same boat. Unfortunately, I can't continue to wait on Hunter because my NYC lease is up 6/1. Signed my Boston lease today so it's def BC for me. For future applicants: All docs and recommendations were submitted by deadline, and no status change as of 4/6. Applied to COPD track.
  5. @tuxedobird10There are some room listings here: https://m.facebook.com/groups/2203898931
  6. I was just accepted at BC!!! Found out via email today, even though when I called last week they said they had mailed out my decision. I'm waiting to hear back on financial aid, but almost certainly will be attending their macro program. Yay!!!
  7. Has anyone for the COP&D track been interviewed?
  8. Just heard back from NYU! Admitted to M.A. in Education and Social Policy 😊
  9. I would peruse through the course catalogues for courses/electives that most intrigue you. Also post your Q on Quora or Reddit.
  10. I had a dance teacher at Hunter who, during our pre-dance stretch, would make us say aloud: YOU ARE THE BEST THERE IS! AIN'T NOBODY FLYER THAN YOU! That goes for all of you with the interviews. Congrats! 😊
  11. @Gee_ Nothing. I'm a COP&D applicant and from what I read in past years' forums they typically don't schedule interviews for this track until March/April.
  12. @Psychotea I applied to MSW programs at Hunter and BC, and I applied to Child Study @ Tufts and EDSP @ Steinhardt. So far, I've only heard back from Tufts.
  13. Hi! 👋 I'm Lina and I'm a Fall 2017 applicant ( 4 Applied | 3 Crickets | 1 Rejection ). One of the ways I'm coping with the waiting (and the scarlet R) is giving to the populations I want to work with. I figure that even if I'm not admitted this season, I can still work towards change by helping others who work with these kids and I'll just try again next year. This perspective has significantly reduced my anxiety, so I wanted to share. I'm giving through DonorsChoose.org, and I support trauma-informed classrooms. Other orgs you'd recommend?
  14. @ed_applicant Congrats! When did you submit/complete? I also applied to NYU for EDSP
