  1. Maybe, for an individual, if you live in Queens and are willing to walk a lot or even bicycle commute. Won’t be pleasant.
  2. hey, i was looking at StevensIT for pursuing Industrial Engineering. I got a mail from them with a admission fee waiver -very lucrative in the current economy. I am an international student from India with gre score of 319 q159 v160. I really cldnt find much about stevens on line.

    Can you tell me what to expect there?

      would love to know this also

  3. I would like to chat with you about this. Please message me in Facebook: /hdavid.lester
  4. The answer to this question is multifaceted. If you can fund the Masters, either through personal savings or loans that you are willing to shoulder, then elect that route and write an excellent thesis, using this experience to determine the landscape in your specialty and develop a network as well as even better letters of recommendation. In that case, make your decision on program based on minimizing costs and maximizing fit with a particular faculty member. Contact candidates directly and explain your objectives. If they are not on board, or can't lend prestige or contacts to your cause, then move on to the next candidate. If further graduate education requires that you receive support, you had better have very strong GRE scores and write an extremely focused personal interest statement keyed to a particular faculty member's specific interests, even his or her emergent interests. Address the impact of your first year, but show how that experience drove later research interests (so it is not just a sob story.) As far as competitiveness for these programs, I can't say. I am curious what others might offer to your question and this unanswered dimension.
  5. Commencement on Friday

  6. Look, I may be out of line here, but maybe you should think out of the box at this point. Why don't you consider The Austin Center for Design? Jon Kolko is amazing and they are doing some really cutting edge stuff. Here is their website: http://www.ac4d.com/ If your dad could swing their 1-year program you'd have the opportunity to build an excellent portfolio of projects which might mitigate your GPA issues, and you'd be able to determine if you're heading in the right direction without any further "overextension." They are a for profit institution so they might be more flexible in their admissions, but I really don't know. It's worth a look.
  7. I just realized this wasn't the appropriate forum to post the above. My apologies. Anyone entering SIT graduate programs, sound off...
  8. Perhaps an informational interview with a seasoned practitioner like Jerome Miller http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jerome_G._Miller whose training was as a psychiatric social worker, not a clinical psychiatrist. However, he would be able to provide extremely valuable perspective and advice on correctional mental health. He is associated with: NCIA Augustus Institute for Mental Health 7222 Ambassador Road Baltimore, MD 21244 443.780.1300 phone However, he may work out of Northern Virginia. NCIA also has a satellite office in Brooklyn: 67 West Street 4th Floor, Room 1A Brooklyn, New York 11222 347.657.9029 ext. 1050 Good luck!
  9. Registered for classes.

      already? can we do that? I thought i had to consult first

      Every school is different. I didn't register until a month before school started... mainly because I didn't know what was going to be offered. We're not competing with undergrads anyway.

  10. Also, even if it isn't that informative, you could message the folks who posted to the thread and solicit their advice.
  11. Ran across this, in case you hadn't seen it... Good luck.
  12. Given ADLNYC's excellent suggestion, I wonder if there is an agreement between John Jay and the school I mentioned in my PM that allows cross-registration in graduate classes? If nothing else, the proximity might be facilitative.
  13. That sometimes things you won't even allow yourself to dream can--against all odds--occasionally come true. [Please don't hate me if that didn't happen for you; I certainly didn't think it would for me.]
  14. I intend to apply the degree listed below to the study and improvement of justice systems, but it's not in any way a criminology program. Close to several, though, so I might take some electives at Rutgers or John Jay.
