  1. Also Columbia has several graduate schools so they don't only have two they likely have about 4 or 5. And if you're thinking about reputation, at the end of the day its Columbia who creates these programs. There are def programs that are more popular than the others (Columbia College and Columbia Law bcuz duh) but everyone takes classes everywhere so it there's only a particular kind of person who takes issue with anything not Columbia College not being columbia
  2. I really enjoyed my professors and classes. I didn't like the director at all but you'll have minimal face time with him (don't take his research methods class). But yeah we all use it interchangeably and everyone gets a Columbia degree, even Barnard. If anyone tries to tell you that its not the same, let them know that all research that is columbia affiliated comes from TC so that'll shut them down real quick *😂 But most people who are not at columbia or live around there won't know what TC is and then they'll ask if you'll be a teacher so I skip all that and use columbia outside of TC. *overgeneralization but largely true
  3. ALSO as far as I'm concerned these are two superb programs and you'll win either way. Best of luck!
  4. Hi I'm at TC now, doing clinical psych as opposed to counseling, so I'm answering in regards to that program. 1) I've never had a class nor heard of anyone in my program who had a class taught by a PhD student, I'd be curious if you could get names though. It would def be out of the norm. We have very few that serve as advisors though. 2) I'm not sure what you mean by an independent relationship. It can definitely be confusing but other than the GRE code, but it doesn't really effect a TC student as far as I'm concerned. We have access to everything and all the buildings (except a very obscure library service that I'm not bitter about at all 😫) It has the same type of relationship that Barnard has to Columbia proper if you're familiar with that. Other than that def look into research interests and the relationships that the schools have with outside institutions in terms of research opportunities and all that stuff. I'm pretty sure they're equal in that sense. Let me know if you want me to weigh into anything else about TC!

  10. I’m getting my masters now and audiobooks, crocheting and blogging really save my sanity. Once I hopefully get into a PhD program I’m prob gonna adopt an older dog. I’d be a first time sole owner and I’ve heard a lot of positive experiences with getting dogs from PhD students in my field
