  1. Fiancee is faced with the two choices. Tried to find resources online to compare pros/cons and career focus for graduates but couldn't find any so I'm turning to the lovely people on thegradcafe. Would anyone be kind of enough to outline what type of candidates go to each school and the pros/cons? Thank you in advance.
  2. Hi! I've applied to the following programs, and I was hoping to get some insight into which programs were worth the inve$tment - in terms of employability / phD prospects afterwards! Would love to hear any feedback! Thank you!! Stanford MA in POLS (Policy, Organization and Leadership Studies) - pending Columbia University MA in Education Policy - pending University of Pennsylvania MsEd in Education, Culture and Society - admitted with $10,000 scholarship and option to apply for GA (max. $3,500) Georgetown University MA in Educational Transformation - (unofficially
  3. First, I am an international student who applied to the Graduate School of Education, 2019 Fall. Can you share your funding situation? I have been accepted to Texas Austin, Ohio State, and Connecticut and else, but no funding information at all. It makes me hard to choose a school. In particular, Austin says that they can't guarantee the fund including TA, GRA. Is it unusual for a Ph.D. in education to study with funding? Will it be possible to get an assistantship after enrolling the school?
  4. There have been threads for a few other schools this year, but no thread yet for Vanderbilt. Let's get this party started! ? What program did you apply to at Vanderbilt, and what other schools did you apply to? Where have you heard back from so far? I applied to Vanderbilt's Ph.D. in Special Education (Early Childhood), and it's the only program I applied to this year. This has historically been the week that interview invites have gone out for SPED students, so I've been anxiously checking the portal ten times a day for official news. ? I receieved my M.Ed. a few years ago in
  5. Hello. I have a phone interview for a masters program I’m applying to (in education) since I’m currently abroad (but not international student). I have a phone interview coming up in a few weeks. In the email, I was told which two people (one professor and the other a faculty member) will be speaking with me, and it was just a confirmation of the date and time for the Skype interview. The person who emailed me didn’t give me the emails of the interviewers (though I guess it’s available online) and just told me if I had any questions to let them know. It seemed kind of generic, except that
  6. Hello - first time posting! I am planning to apply to the HGSE for its EPM /IEP / TIE program for hopefully class of 2021. I was hoping to see if there were mainly teachers or non-profit applicants to the program? Are there many students with a corporate / private background? I wonder if the school deems my type of students as not having a great fit... I was hoping to have this masters as a stepping stone into the education field (NGOs, universities, etc) For my background, I have been a consultant for Deloitte's Human Capital Consulting, as well as a role in People Operations at Goo
  7. If you get invited to an open house / interview event, is that a good sign? But an interview is required for all applicants to that particular masters program, and the event is listed on their school calendar so that anyone can RSVP to attend. So in that case, would you say that the invitation email is just sent out to everyone who applied for that program and doesn’t really mean anything more?

  9. Hey guys, I was wondering about who has applied to bachelor of education or teaching programs in Ontario! I have some questions: Which schools have you applied to? For what age concentration? What are your teachables? What was your GPA? What relevant experience did you have? I've applied to OISE, UOIT, and York for intermediate/senior. My teachables are biology & social science. I had a ~4.0 GPA in my last 2 years. I worked in a local high school for the past 2 years.
  10. I was accepted to the Middlebury Institute of International Studies at Monterey for International Education Management with a 50% scholarship. Does anyone know much about the program? I've heard good things about the school but I haven't been able to find out much about the program because it's so small. Is it widely known in the field? What are their connections and networking opportunities like? I'd like to work in the Bureau of Educational and Cultural affairs in the future. Because they tend to offer so little funding, I'm worried that my classmates won't be in the top tier.
  11. Hi guys, I noticed there isn't any School Counseling information here so I decided to create a thread. I only applied to CSULB School Counseling program for fall 2017. Had my interview March 18 and was notified via email on April 6 that I am on the wait list I was wondering if any of you that were accepted to csulb program are not going there after all? I don't know where I am in the list they wont let us know... I am so hopeful someone decides to go to another program or the program is able to get more funding (PLEASE!!!) just wanted to see where everyone is at right now, thank you guys!
  12. Hi all, I'm going to the AECT 2018 at Kansas City, MO tomorrow. Anyone else? It would be nice to meet people there from this forum. Send me an email or reply to this post if you are interested to meet up: jianfeng.guo@outlook.com Regards, Jianfeng (Steven)
  13. Hi! I'm a junior at a competitive (top 10) US university studying chemistry and computer science. I'm starting to look at options in education to become a middle or high school science teacher, applying to masters programs next fall for a start term of Fall / summer 2020. I have no idea where to even start figuring out my chances at some programs (I've fallen in love with Stanford STEP program) and have no idea what makes an applicant competitive. This is where I'm at statistically: GPA 3.70 (higher in my chemistry classes, which is what I'd look for certification in) 3+ semeste
  14. Could anyone please help me with the following: I'm applying for Econ and edu in Teachers College Columbia 2018fall. I realized the program late and submitted on Mar 3. I finished undergrad in UCL, UK with GPA 3.65 and GMAT 710, and some econ and finance related internship experience. But I partly focused on education in my personal statement. Is there any possibility that I can get in? When will be the possible decision time? (I'm facing deposit choices from UCSD and JHU...) Thanks
  15. Hello! I am beginning the process to apply for the MA in Education with a concentration in Counseling and Student Personnel at SJSU. Just wanted to see if there was anyone else out there in the same boat?
  16. Hello everyone! First time poster. I just finished my undergraduate degree and am working in a role related to that degree (business) for the time being. I was an RA in college and quickly realized that was what I wanted to pursue as a career, so I'm hoping (once I make a solid dent in my undergrad loans) to go back to school and get my graduate degree in student affairs. I've been researching it, starry-eyed and hopeful and I'm honestly really overwhelmed by my options. I have many questions and am hoping I can find some answers here! I've reached out to my mentors from college reslife b
  17. Hi everyone, I need some help figuring out which degree I should pursue. I'm an entry-level coordinator of undergraduate student programs. My career is going to be focused on College Access, Equity, and Success. I want to explore this in a variety of professional opportunities such as college counseling in high schools and education nonprofits, student affairs, education policy, and eventually teaching. I know that I wouldn't dive into policy and teaching until way later in my career when I've built up an extensive amount of professional experience in the field. Which means as of now I'll be f
  18. Hi all, I've 6 years of work experience in sales and marketing consulting, and 7+ years in social space as a volunteer for educational initiatives, including leading the CSR engagements at my firm for over 4 years now. I'm now looking for opportunities to move full-time in this space, so am planning a masters in education as a first step because that's where my heart lies; I've worked in education for the last 7 years on a pro-bono/voluntary basis over and above my full-time job. GRE: VA - 154, QA - 165, AWA - 4 TOEFL: Result awaited GPA: Yet to do a WES evaluation, but I've
  19. This topic is intended to share info and newz about FALL 2018 applications for Master's or PhD exclusively for CANADIAN institutions, either domestic or int'l applicants. I am a domestic Canadian applicant , non-native speaker, and applied for Master's in Education, concentration in Counselling and PhD in Counselling. I have already MA and PhD but not in Canada/US.

  20. Hey, I am wondering who else has applied to the MT program at OISE! What concentration did you apply for, what teachable(s), and what did your application look like? I applied to intermediate/senior for biology & social science. I had volunteer experience in a high school and ~4.0 GPA average in my last two years.
  21. hi, i got accepted to UPenn IEDP, Vanderbilt IEPM, and i'm waiting for UCL (education and development). all three are masters. can anyone who got accepted or is a current student give some opinions about the degrees? upenn takes 1.5, vandy 2, and ucl 2 years upenn is in phily, so i think better networks? vandy is 2 years and i like this because i'm going quite directly from undergraduate but i think the network and job market might be smaller. and several ppl recommended ucl about development. i'm weighing the pros and cons about these schoo
  22. Hi Grad Cafe, I've been selected as a top 3 candidate for full time position in an English department at a community college. I have a final interview with the college president and the dean in a few weeks. Any tips on how to prepare for this? They didn't provide any extra info. I did a teaching demonstration and 60 minutes worth of question and answers in the initial interview. Like many people in the field, I'm feeling a bit desperate for this. It's my only successful application, and I'm terrified of my future if I don't get the job. Thanks for any help!
  23. Four years out of undergrad. Great work experience so far, interning and then later clerking for a year with Speaker of the House of Representatives at the state capitol. Spent last two years working for a large, national nonprofit coordinating a 35,000 person volunteer program. It's been a little less than half a year since I was promoted to Grants Manager in which I apply for and oversee half of a $1.7 million grants budget. Hold a Bachelors of Science, double major in Philosophy and Law. (3.9 GPA) Two study abroads under my belt. Lots of community involvement. Served on a b
  24. Talking with me mates the other day and one of them was sure his degree was the longest (he's studying to be a doctor). His degree, when he graduates, will read MB BCh BAO (NUI) LRCPI LRCSI. That got me thinking, what is the longest academic degree postnominals out there? P.S. Just for fun, I searched for longer degree titles (including associateships and diplomas awarded by specific universities e.g. DIC, AICSM, ARCS, ARSM, ACGI (from Imperial), AKC (from KCL)) None of these, even combined with a regular degree from these unis, appear to be longer than my friends.
  25. So I've recently been accepted to both UPenn's Urban Teaching Apprenticeship and Teachers College Elementary Inclusive Education program. I'm trying to weigh the pros and cons of both programs, but I'm having trouble deciding! At UPenn I would be getting a Pre-K-4 certification, and at TC it would be 1-6. The UTAP program would be a one-year program, and TC would be two years, or one and a half if I accelerate. Both programs give the opportunity to earn a Special Ed cert alongside Elementary. Right now I would say I'm leaning towards Penn but I also know that TC is very highly regarded in
