  1. Hello! I was wondering if anyone else is considering STEP. I would like to chat with prospectives or anyone who has experience with the program. I might visit the campus, if I'm able to scrounge up some money. Hope to hear from you (whoever you may be) soon!
  2. Hi all, So I wondered, what do you think is hot in education research right now? I'm asking this with an eye to what might be likley to land me a job in the future. I have several good options for entering PhD programs this year, but the areas are all a little different. I'm primarily interested in studying a specific subgroup of nontraditional students in higher ed, but I can come at it from MANY different directions. My long term goals include being a prof and researcher, or possibly higher ed admin. I also want to make myself as marketable as possible since I have an academic spouse.
  3. OK, so, I have this dilemma… what would you do? My field is Education – Higher Ed. Policy Choice 1: Go with the good school I got into and never look back. The school is ranked around 40-50, but seems to be “up and coming.” Faculty fit is good and the people are friendly. Placements are decent in the geographic area I’d like to work in, but not super prestigious… Choice 2: Go to the school mentioned above for a year and then apply to my dream school again? My dream school is ranked around #15 and is arguable the most prestigious program for my sub field in the area. I did a phone intervie
  4. Hey, I haven't posted here in a year or so. I wanted to see if anyone is a blogger - I'm looking to link up my blog with other sociology bloggers. I specifically discuss public sociology. Have a look if you've got the time - follow it if you like it. I accept guest contributions too. www.sociologyforthepeople.wordpress.com Thanks. Good luck to everyone applying this year.
  5. So... I was admitted to a Curriculum and Instruction program at a university in the Midwest. I deferred to get more work experience first. Now, I am ready to do it! I'm in my early 30's and I'm anxious to get started. However, now I'm wondering if it might be better to wait a year and apply to universities in California, if that would mean better networking opportunities, etc. Plus, I like the weather! : ) On the other hand, I don't want to have to go through the application process again. The program I was admitted to is ranked well (top 5ish), although the school overall is not ranked as hig

    sop review

    Can anyone take a quick look at my Sop for a Ph.D. in Comparative Edcn?
  7. Hi, Just checking to see if anyone could take a quick look at my Sop for a Ph.D. in International and Comparative Education.
  8. Compared to other grad programs, is the GRE that big of a deciding factor for ed schools? I just took mine and got mediocre/average scores (verbal 158, quant. 151) and now I'm anxious. I have a 3.9 GPA, though, which I hope will count for more. I have my heart set on the Boston College Lynch School of Education, and im crossing my fingers that the GRE isn't all that important. But hopefully, some of you out there have a better idea than I do...
  9. Hello all, I feel like applying to a master's program in education is considerably different than applying to a master's program in any other field. I'm currently applying to the BC Lynch School of Education, and I'm in the process of writing my personal statement. I'm curious; for those of you applying to grad school for education, what are you writing about in your statements? I'm writing about experiences I've had working with children, and how they've affected my personal beliefs and ambitions for teaching.
  10. Hi all! I'm new but I would really appreciate some advice/input. I am looking to apply *next* year (I'll explain that later) for an Ed.D. at Harvard, Columbia, and Stanford. I'll give a brief overview of my work/experience below. I really just kind of want an idea of if I have a chance or not, or what it is that these schools are looking for. I graduated from a big state university with a degree in math (3.3 gpa.. not super great), and then from the same school's GSE a year later (accelerated program) with an Ed.M. in Education (3.9 gpa). Since then, I've been working for a small pr
  11. I am planning on applying for a Ph.D (and maybe an Ed.D program) in Curriculum and Instruction (with a sub-interest for urban education) for Fall 2012. After spending countless hours researching on the web, I cannot find out whether or not I have a competitive chance of getting in. I feel like I have to much I can offer the field and it is so depressing that I am capable of delivering research to panels of people, yet I freeze up and bomb the math section of the GRE and now my aspirations are potentially crushed. Basically, I think I have a pretty strong application overall, but I bombed
  12. I was wondering if anyone might have some insight... Last December I applied to a multitude of Student Affairs / HESA / College Student Development Masters Programs (Penn State, Michigan State, VATech, Syracuse, UConn) and was only accepted at three - and I was only accepted to those off the wait-list once they had given all the assistantships away so I was unable to accept their offers (Northeastern, FIU, UMiami). Come to find out - I thought I had done my research, but guess not - that I applied to top tier programs that get about 300 applications for 10 spots - and I'm honest enough
  13. I am planning on applying for a Ph.D (and maybe an Ed.D program) in Curriculum and Instruction (with a sub-interest for urban education) for Fall 2012. After spending countless hours researching on the web, I cannot find out whether or not I have a competitive chance of getting in. Basically, I think I have a pretty strong application overall, but I bombed the GRE. I know that many of you are going to say re-take it, but while I have proven that I am pretty successful academically, I simply freeze up on standardized tests. =( Below is my application information: Undergrad GPA: 3.
  14. Hi there! I couldn't find a forum that was dedicated for the Fall 2011 applications for Education Doctorates in 2012, so here it is! I really hope this will be a good place for mutual questions and support, as we all know this process is never an easy one! Anyway, to start things off, here are my specs. Feel free to ask me any questions that you may have, or just to stop by and say a quick hi! Undergraduate Institution: UC San Diego Masters Institution: MAT@USC, U of M Certification GPA: Undergraduate - 3.01, Graduate - 4.0 GRE: Verbal: 640, Quantitative: 800, Writing: 5.0 Wor
