  1. Didn't see a thread for this, so thought I should create my own.

    Columbia University MSW Fall 2019

    Didn't see a thread for this. Hope to submit my app for the online program later this month.

    I shall take all three!
  4. Didn't see a thread for this! Anyone else planning to apply by the priority deadline? I'm interested in Education Policy myself.

    The Positivity Thread

    I’ve just been accepted to the Woodenfish Summer 2019 Humanistic Buddhist Monastic Life Program in China!
  7. Hi folks! I recently sent in my deposit for an MSW program. My school does have a Social Work Review (kind of like a peer-reviewed journal), though I presume getting on it is a competitive process. Have any current/former MSW candidates gotten published? Is it something that has helped you out career-wise or stood out on your resume? I'd appreciate any perspectives!

    *e-hugs* Right there with you, but 31. Cry at least once a week. And for Indian girls in my situation, the stigma is real. People assume that you're "defective".

    FLAS 2018/2019

    Does anyone know when Columbia FLAS applicants would hear back? I applied by the 2/26 deadline.
  12. Hi folks! Last month I was accepted to the South Asian Studies M.A. program at Columbia GSAS with $10,000 scholarship. (There's another thread on it, but it's quite old-2011). I was allowed to deefer admission until fall 2019. Did anyone else apply and/or get accepted to the program, or is a current student/grad? A couple questions: Will $40,000 be enough for cost of living for fall 2019, spring 2020, summer 2020, and fall 2020? That's how much I should have saved up. How competitive is it to get the Foreign Language and Area Studies (FLAS) fellowship? Do most people who apply to one get one? I want to study Hindi. Do most grad students live in graduate housing, or at least in Morningside Heights? I plan to get a terminal M.A. and not go the Ph.D. path and become a prof, so I was hoping to get practical experience during the semesters (volunteer work, internships, etc. 8-10 hours/week) so I could be in the best position to get a job at graduation. Is this feasible given the rigorous workload of a grad student? I also will hopefully be doing a work-study job, as unfortunately, internships in the public sector are unpaid, ugh. At GSAS I plan to take 9-12 credits a semester tops. Also, does GSAS provide stipend funding for internships the way SIPA, the law school, etc. do? What are your impressions of the department in general? What do you wish you had known before starting it? What are the typical career paths of terminal M.A.s in this department? I'll be in my early 30s when I start. Are most folks 21-22 and coming fresh out of undergrad, or are there plenty of GSAS students with past careers? How is the counseling center at Columbia?
  13. I withdrew because they offered me zero funding, unfortunately. Good luck to those waiting!

    I got $25k/year. Over the moon! I do hear that they are open to negotiation if you feel like you didn't get what you deserved/needed.

    I'm surprised about "not enough people applying"...I mean, given the name and stature of Columbia.

    Congrats! 😃 Welcome.
  25. Where are you employed? How much are you earning? Do you have any regrets? Are you in a lot of educational debt? ETA: I think these are really cool disciplines. Just saying that society in general views them as "fluff", nonlucrative, etc.
