    HGSE 2018

    Hey, guys! Took my GRE today and saw my dream of going to HGSE go down the drain. My scores are below any GSE average. Given my subpar GPA, my chances are not looking so good. I am still going to apply though. I hope you guys all did well!

    When you are at Harvard next year, please don't forget to help out gradcafe folks!
  5. Guys, have you beard about Georgetown University's brand new program - Master's in Educational Transformation? It is very hands on and looks perfect for practioners like myself. I will be applying this year. http://edtransform.georgetown.edu/
  6. Hello, everyone! I am applying to HDS this year (MTS). I am particularly excited about the fact that their Gender and Sexuality concentration takes on a feminist approach. However, I am worried about my catastrophic quant score on GRE (140) and my average AWA score (4.0). My GPA aint that good as well (3.1). Great SoP, LoRs and work experience though. Do I stand a chance?

    @Saket Sinha It seems like your issue was the lack of clear goals as you are still confused which program to apply to. Have you considered special studies program?
  9. I would re-take it. I scored in 30% percentile on my GRE, and given that I don't have any quant background, I didn't want the AdCom to think I am completely math illeterate. You still have time.

    Hello, everyone! I am a devout gradcafe lurker, who has finally decided to apply to HGSE! I have attended two HGSE Diversity Recruitment evengs, and have talked to dozens of HGSE alumni, and I would like to share with you some of the info that I have collected over the years: - H is not "a perfect place but it is a special place" - Mohan Boodram, Assoc.Dean of Enrollment & Student Services - "H doesn't have outliners here. H has a home for everyone" - M. Boodram - Goal of HGSE Admissions office: fit is paramount. We want to make su

    @Edugy What do you think prevented you from gaining admission in 2013? I am a bit worried about my GPA. It is similar to yours.

    I attended two HGSE open houses and nobody supported this statistic. Each program at HGSE has its own admission statistics. Some programs are more popular and hence more competitive. Others are more lenient.
