  1. So it's already late March and browsing through the results it doesn't look like anyone's gotten a notification of acceptance or rejection? Has anyone heard an update yet?
  2. I've been accepted into two good schools. NYU : Masters in Biotechnology & Entrepreneurship at the Tandon School of Engineering Brown University: Masters in Biotechnology. I'm facing a very difficult time deciding between these two. I am also going to be an international student. Any advice on this regard would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!
  3. Hey! I'm thinking about applying to HRMD SPS for the fall semester. Did anybody in SPS, in general, have to submit a GRE/GMAT? I heard you have to submit a GRE or GMAT if you graduated college recently. Also, If you applied to SPS how was your application process? Do you think it is fairly easy to get in? Thank You
  4. Dear all, I applied to a little less than 6 Ph.D. program at Princeton, Columbia, UCB, NYU and etc, but got rejected by them all. My GPA is 3.8 in my last ma program in IR. Toefl: 107/120, GRE V156/Q169 However, I received 2 consolation MA admission by Columbia Unversity (one year I guess) and NYU (3 semester to 2 years), without funding. Now the dillema is twisting and making me pretty dismay as I'm deeply afraid both of the programs are so-called cash cow programs. As I'm looking forward to work in NYC or broadly the US, I don't know if these two programs are adding value to my job prospect. So I'm really looking forward to comments and suggestion by anyone who knows about these programs in terms of the quality, the evaluation, both academic and from the perspective of job market. Really appreciate it!
  5. Hello Im looking at furthering my education and I came across the NYU-SCPS advanced diploma programs and I'm wondering if anyone has an opinion on this program? I currently hold a bachelors degree in business and work in marketing for a large global company and am wanting to learn more about digital marketing to help further my career. The advanced diploma in digital marketing seems great, but I've been hearing mixed reviews about NYU-SCPS. I mean it's not a full degree, just advanced studies so I'm thinking it's ok.. Anh opinions or reviews on the program?! Any insight would be helpful!! Thank you!
  6. Hi, Could I please get some thoughts on deciding where to accept? Living standards, preferences, money aside - I just want to gather which department people find better. I am leaning towards macro in my studies. In my opinion, they are fairly similar in rankings. I know that some people are much better informed about the development of the departments. Do you think in 5 years NYU will be better than NW? As of now it seems NW is still a bit more prestigious but NYU is rising? I know it is not an easy question and it "really depends" but I am sure that you understand I am just trying to use every possible way of gathering info. Thanks!
  7. I was accepted to Steinhardt on March 23rd and still haven't received my financial aid award. The financial aid office keeps giving me the "it should be ready in 3-5 business days" runaround. Has anyone else received their financial aid package from NYU? I'm starting in the summer so it's really ridiculous that fees are due for summer classes in 3 weeks and I don't even know if my financial aid will even be here in time to pay for it. This is also preventing me from being able to register for summer classes.
  8. Hey all! I'm applying to several communications schools (thank god for late deadlines) and am curious about hard numbers. Does anyone have hard numbers about the average GRE and GPA of Columbia's Masters of Strategic Communications or USC Annenberg's Masters of Comms programs? I took the GRE and got a 156 and 4 on the writing. I'm curious if I should retake or just apply. (I have a 3.45GPA from a public ivy and three years of work experience) Anyone willing to share their numbers? Thanks!
  9. I have admit from USC data science and NYU data science. Which one is a wise choice among these two? I am a computer science undergrad student and hence I am into more of coding and mathematics but now business analytics. Please help me in choosing one over the other. Thank you
  10. No, not quite as important as Lebron's decision, but I do have to make one in the next 10 days or so. I have 2 offers for Masters in Data Science programs from the following universities: University of Washington at Seattle - Masters in Data Science Tuition: ~45k, 5k department scholarship for 2017-2018 Pros: Has better regarded comp sci and applied math program, smaller cohort (~50), cheaper, Seattle is a big tech area with lower cost of living, Cons: Relatively new program, no graduates yet to give employment statistics, Seattle is gloomy NYU - Masters in Data Science Tuition: ~62k, no funding yet Pros: More established and high profile program, NYU really looks out to make sure their students get jobs/internships, more DS faculty members to work with Cons: more expensive both in tuition and cost of living, have to move to NYC (far from california), larger cohort expected (up to ~100) I currently live in silicon valley, and plan to work probably in tech after graduation, although I am open minded. I want to conduct some meaningful research while I am at either school, and have contacted several professors. I can probably round up another 5k or so in external scholarship/grants before fall, but most of the cost I will have to foot via my saved $ unless I do RA/TA-ships. In fact I suspect my decision will come down to what individual professors can offer me in terms of research work/funding from either school. Thoughts?
  11. Hi Everyone, After long time decision, I finally decide to go to UCB stat rather than Duke stat. However, this last Friday, I got the AD from NYU DS, which is also my dream program. I am a statistics major and only took 3 cs courses in data structure, python programming and VB. I am not really sure weather my cs background is enough for ds program. I am now an actuarial analyst outside US, and I hope I can work toward modeling in US(especially prefer to work in actuarial firm) after graduate from graduate school. It sounds that NYU locates in better location for me. However, I have heard most financial companies in East side don't sponsor H1B. Also, I my opinion, to work as an data analyst, it is more important to focus on explaining the models and reports. CS skills are only tools and statistics methods are much important. I am not really sure weather I illustrate the concept of data science correct. In fact, I am confuse why most data science/ analytics programs have nearly 100% placement, which have better placement and average income than statistics programs. Can anyone provide me some advice? Thank you! Any advice and opinions for data science are appreciated!
  12. I've already considered about my decision for two days but I cannot figure out anything. I'm graduating with a statistics BS this spring, and I plan to become a data scientist after earning my master degree. NYU definitely has a better location, and the program is very good and popular. I believe it's easier for me to get a job if I choose nyu. However, Duke is a world-renowned school and the MSS program is also among the best nationally and internationally. I just don't which one to choose, and I have a strong feeling that the decision will affect my future...
  13. I'm trying to decide between these two schools for a masters in Communicative Sciences and Disorders. I visited Teachers College and was very impressed by their overall program curriculum, their strong commitment to multiculturalism/bilingualism, and how smoothly they integrate the necessary prerequisites into their grad program (I'm an out-of-field applicant). However, it seems that their facilities were slightly outdated, and their research focus may not be as strong or as broad as NYU's? I wasn't able to attend NYU's admitted students day, so I haven't gotten to speak with any current grad students or faculty members, tour their facilities, or get a sense of the overall "vibe" of the program. I'm also concerned that NYU might not be the best choice for an out-of-field applicant such as myself... this is the first year they're integrating the prerequisites into their grad program, and all of those prereqs will be offered as online courses instead of in-person. Anybody else in a similar situation? Or has anybody visited both schools... in your opinion, what were the pros/cons of each? Thanks in advance!
  14. Greetings, I was wondering if anyone would be kind enough to help me understand what might be the differences between art history MA programs of Boston University, NYU (IFA), Tufts, and Columbia. I was accepted to all of them except for Columbia, which I am still waiting on. My primary concern is with the strengths of the programs and I would like to focus on Western pre-modern art and architecture. My first inclinations are towards Columbia and IFA due to program description, location and school notoriety (which I admit is superficial). Tufts and BU are clearly considered to be very good schools but at the end of the day we're comparing specific programs and the chances of securing employment afterwards, either in these cities or abroad. It just seems like New York based schools will have an inherent advantage but that could be a misguided perception. I could very well not be accepted to Columbia and then the choice would be between IFA, BU, and Tufts. Part of me wants to stay in Boston because my rent would be covered, it's a more relaxed environment, and maybe would be less competitive.However, New York is a wonderful city to study art history with more resources and I am familiar with the city because I earned my BA from Hunter College. I like the idea of a smaller school like Tufts but I am afraid it will not be recognized for art history as well as the other schools might be, especially the NY ones. Any insight would be greatly appreciated, thank you.
  15. I was admitted to SIPA for the MPA in Development Practice and NYU Wagner for the MPA in Public & Non Profit Management & Policy (International specialization) and was fortunate to receive funding from both. I'm aware that it's possible to request additional funding from each school, but as of now I'd be paying ~45k out of pocket for the 2 years at NYU and ~68k for the 2 years at Columbia. With a 22k difference (and this doesn't even include living expenses!), I'd like to know how Columbia's and NYU's programs compare (in terms of academics, internship & career opportunities, networking, practical skills training, faculty accessibility, etc.) and if I would be getting infinitely more from Columbia that would justify the extra 22k. Will I have better job prospects and networking opportunities if I go to Columbia over NYU? Is the International MPA track at NYU comparable to SIPA's MPA-DP program in terms of skills & material learned? How accessible & involved are faculty at each? If you were in my shoes what would you pick and why? P.S I want to work in program management / development for an international NGO or foundation upon graduation with plans to found my own organization in the near future (hence why those hard skills & networks are extremely important to me).
  16. Has anyone heard back for the International Education MA at NYU for fall/summer 2017? Decisions were out by now last year but some years it looks like they took closer til the end of March. Or has anyone spoken to admissions and have an idea when they'll go out?
  17. Hey all, Anyone hear back from NYU I/O psychology master program?? I am anxiously waiting as it is my top choice. I got into Columbia's Social Organizational Psychology and Cornell's MILR. From previous years, the decision for NYU usually came out in the first two weeks of March, however, it is now mid-March. I have a very bad feeling that they are going to reject me. I already followed up with the coordinator and she just said I will hear back soon. So anyone hear back yet?? Thanks!!!
  18. Hello all, Has anyone heard back from the NYU I/O masters program? I'm worried I've missed an email somewhere or wondering if they haven't sent anything out yet. The website says February initial decisions go out, but I haven't seen anyone posting their acceptance. Just getting anxious as its one of my top choices! Thanks!!
  19. Hi everyone! I'm an International Student. I applied to NYU's Tisch School of the Arts MFA Dramatic Writing Program from December 19th and I was told that notifications are sent out ANYTIME between MARCH 1st and APRIL frickin 15th! I am going crazy!!! It's almost the end of March and I haven't seen ANY applicants on this site with a decision for this program. In fact, I think one of the key committee members has been out of office for 1 week or so, with no "return date" in his automated email reply, so I don't know when he's expected back. I don't want to keep emailing admissions to annoy anyone, but this is ROUGH! At least with Brown University, they stuck to the date they gave (although it was just as long of a wait). At least they stuck to their date. Tisch, I don't know what's taking them so long... I mean... they have 1 month AND 15 days and I haven't seen ONE decision on the Results Search page... sigh... I'm also waiting on Boston U's MA Journalism which I was told would be out by next week.... but Tisch.... what is going on in that dept? Does anyone know? Thanks!
  20. I am not a very good student over all, GRE scores were in the mid 140's and got a 4 in writing. My cumulative GPA is 3.48 but in my speech courses it's only a 3.0. I am desperately trying to find Speech Pathology masters programs that are not ridiculous to get into. I'm asking about NYU because I spoke to an advisor there who was VERY optimistic about my getting in. Compared to everyone else I've spoken to, this was a major relief and is even making me consider paying the stunning $76,000 for the degree!! Anyways, this advisor told me that NYU does not have a cap on how many students they accept into the online program, and do not even list their GPA and GRE requirements online because they want to encourage all students to apply even if they do not think they have very good scores. I would like to hear from someone who has gotten into the program or knows any information about it whether or not this is true. I am strongly considering the online option, but would also like to know whether the in person MS program is more difficult/competitive?
  21. Anyone hear back yet?
  22. Hello All, Submitted my application to NYU Wagner for Fall 2017 (MPA) on Dec. 15, 2017. Received an email on Dec. 23rd stating that my application is currently being reviewed by the Admissions Committee. Creating this forum so that we may all update each other and keep in contact. Good luck everyone!
  23. Does anyone hear from MSc. Human Resources – NYU ? When will they announce admission result? Thank you, Natdhanai C.
  24. Hello everyone I'm interested in studying photography (including issues of class, power and the documentary genre). I was accepted to the IFA's MA program, and the UT Austin PhD American Studies program (which would have a strong photography angle). I am wait-listed at U Michigan-Ann Arbor's PhD art history program. I ultimately want to get a PhD, then teach and curate photography. IFA is tremendously respected, and would open a lot of doors (maybe more in curating than academia), but would cost $70,000. UT Austin is of course free. But do you think it 1.) is respected / opens doors and 2.) might allow me to keep a foot in both academic and curating worlds? I would appreciate any insight you might have. Thank you!
  25. I have got into 2 programs and am waiting on other two, but have to get back on admitted programs soon. My main aim is to do research to put me in a better position for PhD in ML (deep learning and/or probabilistic modeling) later on but also keep option open for a job in machine learning like data scientist, machine learning scientist or research engineer in case I do not get into a PhD with an advisor in my research area. Below are my thoughts on the pros and cons of each. CMU MCDS: Great all around in terms of professors, research, courses and reputation. However, it is billed as a professional degree and so if I don’t get to do enough research with the right profs I would need to look for job and the kind of jobs available are mainly software engineer. Columbia MSCS: There is a thesis option but very little clarity on how many students are actually able to move on to successful PhDs in future as unlike CMU they don’t post information on alumni. I could hardly find any masters students on faculty research group pages so not sure if they are accepted by Profs for research positions. NYU MSCS: I have seen a few MS students here doing research with faculty but it’s the highest risk in terms of getting a job if PhD doesn’t work out as I’ve heard most of the people getting jobs in NYC banks which is not my top priority. Stanford MSCS: I almost certainly would take Stanford over all these as I think it provides the best balance of both choices but here too I see it markets itself as more of a terminal degree so I am confused. Kindly advise which one I should choose given my situation which has the maximum research potential.
