Hi, my question is a little off topic, but since this is the Education thread I'm hoping some of you can help me out. Has anyone been to AERA (American Educational Research Association) Conference? If so, would you be able to tell me about your experience? I am going to present at a roundtable session in April, but this will be my first time and I really don't know what to expect.

Roundtables are sometimes strange--I've done three or four of them and only once did it really work well--everyone who attended was knowledgeable on the specific topic and there was lots of audience participation. They do tend to be pretty low-key, so I wouldn't stress about it.

To make the most of your AERA experience figure out in which divisions and SIGs you feel at home. Attend their business meetings and socials, participate in any mentoring opportunities, join their Facebook pages--both general and grad-student-specific. Meet grad students from other universities and form a conference crew that you can connect with in future years. Ask your advisor to introduce you to people. It might also be helpful to have your advisor model how to chat with poster presenters and ask them questions about your work. I'm assuming you are a current student somewhere but perhaps this is not the case? PM me for more specific advise if you are on your own...

I just got in yesterday morning too! (M.A. TESOL) Sounds like financial aid info will be coming out in about two weeks. For those who are interested, I submitted my materials just a few days before the February 1 deadline. Congrats ed_applicant and good luck to everyone!

Hi everyone, has anyone who applied to the Educational Leadership, Policy and Advocacy (ELPA) course at NYU heard back?

Hi everyone,

Since sharing is caring here are my results: I applied Masters in Higher Education Student Affairs (the title of the program various a lot, but since my emphasis is HESA all programs share similar curriculum). I got accepted by University of San Francisco, USC, San Diego State, University of Washington, Columbia University Teachers College, and New York University, which are all the programs I've applied this year. My first acceptance was USF in January and I got my last acceptance in TC on Monday (more like used a trick to log in admitted student portal prior to admission status update).

My top choice is New York University, and I just got matched with my top 1 assistant-ship this past weekend after the Recruitment Days. The actually formal admission letter isn't out yet, but I know where I'm going now. ;)

For anyone who has been accepted at Teachers College or NYU Steinhardt, is there any insight you can share in terms of scholarships/aid for international applicants?

I'm an international who got accepted for an MA in Curriculum & Teaching at TC on Friday, and emailed the TC financial aid office yesterday about my aid status. Got the following reply the same day:

"The department made their first round of scholarship decisions last week. Unfortunately, you were not awarded funding during the first round. However, if funding becomes available and you will be considered for scholarship funding. If you are awarded funding, you will receive a financial aid award letter detailing the award."

Thank you. I was also told that they are going to be making more decisions in the next few weeks. I also got my acceptance on Friday so don't see how we could have been considered for that first round either :/

It was the EdD program. And, no, I did not interview.

Hi-- do you mind sharing your stats and work history? I've heard that this program is great for working professionals.
