So for the MAT social studies program at SUNY New Paltz the application deadline was may 15. I submitted mine may 12. I'm wondering if anyone in this program or the grad school in general has any idea how long it takes to hear back from them? Whether it be the alert that they've processed your app or results. Any insight would help lol I'm mildly freaking this is my top choice. It hasn't even been a week and I'm obsessively checking my email all day.
I've been accepted into Brown, Brandeis, BU, Lynch, HGSE and Tufts for their MAT/Ed.M programs and have absolutely no idea which to choose. Tufts offered me a full tuition scholarship alongside an Urban Teachers Teaching Collaborative Fellowship that'll give me about $12k. I haven't received any financial aid from HGSE, I should be hearing relatively soon. BU gave me a $33k scholarship, Brown gave me a $32,645 scholarship and BC didn't give me any money (although I'm waiting on the Donovan Program to respond to me- they offer full tuition scholarships as well) Money is of course a factor but I don't want it to be the only reason I choose a program. I also wouldn't be able to work so aside from taking out a loan to pay for the remainder of the tuition I'd need to take out about $20k to pay my bills, rent, etc. Has anyone gone to any of these programs/been accepted and comment on them? I live in Peabody and will probably commute so I'm thinking of declining Brown's offer but I'm still not sure. Any bit of information helps! Thank you!
I'm dying over here waiting for my decision letters so I thought I would start a thread solely for Secondary Education MAT programs. I applied to Boston University, George Washington University, Coastal Carolina University, and University of North Carolina University.
ClassicConundrum posted a topic in Decisions, DecisionsI've been accepted to both programs, and have two weeks to decide. I'm looking for any advice on choosing, whether it be specific to the schools or anything general! I don't care much for ranking, just looking to get the best experience out of the programs. Johns Hopkins' acceptance rate is ~90%, should I be concerned by this? BC's is ~50%. Both are one year programs as well. Johns Hopkins appears to be much cheaper, but is giving me second thoughts because I would be taking all of my classes on a campus that is essentially an office building. Should I be skeptical of this? The programs are really similar in terms of coursework. Thanks in advance! http://education.jhu.edu/Academics/masters/MAT/index.html JOHNS HOPKINS http://www.bc.edu/schools/lsoe/academics/departments/teseci/graduate/medseced.html BOSTON COLLEGE
Paula posted a question in Questions and AnswersHello, I want to apply to some Professor/Instructor of Art (photography) faculty positions, and the requirements ask for a MFA degree "or equivalent"- I have an MAT in art ed, with over 60 credits in studio art and 12 credits in art history (way beyond the MAT requirements) , and a substantial professional record in international professional photography, with many photographs published/commissioned, as well as a significant exhibition record in painting/printmaking. Do you have any advice of how to present my record in the application, or is not having the MFA a bigger obstacle that I think?
Hey y'all! I'm trying to pick from my acceptances, and I keep coming back to this question: would it be better to get an M.A.T. or an M.A.? I also have another dilemma. A couple of my MA/MAT programs are offered through education departments, so I would take more education and less classics courses. My other programs are offered through classics departments, so I would take more classics and less education courses. Any advice or opinions? I'm ready to become a high school Latin teacher, but this April 15 deadline is making me nervous! Gratias, Philomeides
