  1. I'm currently halfway done through my second semester of graduate school here at Fordham. I was doing my 100 hour social justice practicum at a Title 1 middle school in lower Manhattan where I was counseling 7th grade students and in the process of doing a case study presentation about one of the students I was counseling over the course of 8 weeks until the coronavirus pandemic hit us. As of last Monday, all of the schools in NYC closed, thus I can't go back to the school I was doing my practicum at nor go back to Fordham for my in-person classes for the rest of the semester since we're doing
  2. I recently graduated with my bachelors in psychology and I worked as a research assistant for two years for two different labs. As an RA, you typically work about 9-10 hours per week. For both labs, we had 1 lab hour dedicated to mandatory lab meetings 1 day of the week while the remaining hours you spent in the laboratory itself. Some tasks I had was entering data into the computer system on excel, typing up transcripts from observational data (i.e. recorded interviews of previous graduate assistants working with their participants), running through drafts of questionaries, running through pr
  3. I am going to be studying school counseling at Fordham University in their masters program.
  4. I accepted my offer to attend Fordham to pursue my masters in their School Counseling program at GSE this upcoming fall. Who else will be attending the school?
  5. No I have not. I personally don’t even know regarding that as well. I’m not waitlisted either as far as I know. I plan on waiting one more week but by then, if I don’t hear back from TC at the end of next week, I will probably be making my decision to attend at another school out of the ones I was accepted to.
  6. I am also going to be the very first person in my family to ever attend graduate school, which is such an honor to hold and could not be any more proud. Both me and my older brother attended the University at Buffalo for our bachelors, though while I'm about to graduate in May, he already graduated back in May 2016 with a BS in pharmacology and toxicology and spent the last three years working as a research technician. He is also returning back to UB for his second bachelors degree in nursing right after I graduate, which will be an accelerated program that takes him one year to complete. I'm
  7. I agree. Don't even attempt at lying to the committee. Not only is it morally wrong, but it's not professional as well and you do not want the school to view you in that light as a person not taking graduate school seriously. Be 100% honest in your explanation.
  8. I applied for their EdM Psychological Counseling program and submitted my application back on January 15th, which was their priority deadline. A few days ago, I emailed them and they said that students usually hear back from TC at the end of March at the latest though some programs do take a bit longer to send out decisions. If I don't hear anything back from them by this week, then I guess that the first week is when I'll probably be hearing back from them. They are the very last school I'm waiting to hear back from.
  9. I was worried in regards to a similar case that happened to me while in college. During my very first semester, I dealt with a lot of personal issues as well as a difficulty transition from high school to college and my grades during that time started off not so good. I got 3 Cs/C+s, only 1 A, and a P for a Pass/Fail class. For the next 3 years, I drastically improved on my work ethic in college, got tutors for classes I needed help in, and my grades turned a complete 180 to where I started getting a mix of As and Bs and then eventually, mostly straight As with one or two A-s in the mix.
  10. I'm currently waiting to hear back from Teachers College, Columbia University in regards to their EdM Psychological Counseling program (and this is the very last school I'm waiting to hear back from). I emailed them a few days ago and told me that students should hear back by around the end of March at the latest. I really want to make my decision pretty soon before April 15th.
  11. I actually heard back from Hunter over a week ago and I was accepted into their MSEd school counseling program. Perhaps for your program, they may be taking longer to send out decisions.
  12. I just received an email from them and they told me that I should receive my result into the counseling program by around the end of this month at the latest though some programs do take a bit longer to make decisions.
  13. I'm in the same position as you right now though for different program of study. I was admitted to the MA program for school counseling at NYU but I'm also waiting to hear back from Columbia in regards to their psychological counseling program at TC. It's actually the last school for me that I'm waiting to hear back from and I want to know so bad as to what they decided. Hope I hear back from them very soon! 😬
  14. I got my third acceptance earlier today through an email when I was riding in the car with my parents heading home.
