  1. Thank you! My MA is in a related social science...but which one isn't? I've been able to talk them into some funding, but still the price tag makes me a bit nervous--but I can tell the program really seems top notch. Since we've made it to The April 15th, I'm hoping waitlisted students will hear back soon!
  2. Hey, cafe-goers! I find myself in a weird position with my grad school apps (don't we all?). Here's my current breakdown. All of these programs are related to industrial-organizational psychology (but not necessarily named that): 1) I'm waitlisted at Columbia (!!!) 2) I've been rejected at Wisconsin, but only because of a 1-year budget shortfall. They've strongly encouraged me to apply again. 3) I've been accepted to Claremont Graduate University...to their MA program. The catch? The program isn't funded. And I have a masters in another field. While I'm waiting to find out if I get off of the waitlist at Columbia, I'm trying to decide what to do about my other options. Should I pay for the second MA, get a credential in the right field, and reapply to other programs? Should I defer for a year at CGU, go back to work, and apply again with the academic credentials I have? The program at CGU looks AMAZING, and I've seen firsthand that the students are getting a great education. But if I pay for an MA...I'm worried that will put a PhD financially out of reach. What do you think?
