  1. hi all (sorry for any grammar issues or spelling -- i'm trying to get this up in between meetings!) i'm going to be a new graduate student starting in fall 2021 and i was wondering: what's a good starting course load? i'll be working as a paraprofessional (it's required) for my program, so i'll be working roughly part-time in the office (or more when they need me for when the university is experiencing peak times [e.g. move-in, orientation, move-out, etc.]). i'm really not trying to take 4 courses to start off with, but some part of me thinks 3 is reasonable? i haven't been in scho
  2. Woah, sorry for the late response! I never got a notification for your reply, so I thought this was just an empty thread I made. Thanks for your insight! I have some family who live on the East Coast (though none are in New York anymore), and they stress that NYC is great in its own ways, much like how you listed! I know my family in LA are showing preferential treatment to USC again due to the campus locality. But for both schools, if I can get the grad assistantship I'm looking for, I won't have to worry about renting! But then again, I'll have to look for other options just in case. I
  3. Hi everyone! This is my second post on this site so I'm hoping a few of you could offer some insight onto my challenge: choosing NYU or USC. (And yes, I did post this under "Decisions, Decisions", but I found this sub-forum [?] and figured it'd also be a good place to post). I've been "accepted" into both (Recruitment Day Interviews for NYU and official acceptance for USC), and I'm over the moon! Both schools are really good and I feel incredibly lucky to think I got in even after taking a gap year during covid. I'm from Southern California (if that helps) and I'm having troub
  4. I've been feeling super down on myself, too. I applied to 7 grad programs, and I've only been officially accepted into one. I have another interview coming up next month, but the only two schools that seem to want me are private schools. I've, so far, been rejected 3/7 and I don't know what I did wrong during my applications. What sucks even more is that the schools won't let me ask what I did wrong or appeal, so I have to sit here and wait out the other ones. I've seriously been questioning the validity of my acceptances to my other schools and I just feel a huge cloud of insecurity and impos
  5. Hi everyone! This is my first post on this site so I'm hoping a few of you could offer some insight onto my challenge: choosing NYU or USC.

While my family prefers if I stay in the Los Angeles area and go to USC, I can't help but romanticize the idea of being
