Hello guys, I applied for Cologne Graduate School of aging PhD program in Germany. I had an online interview in December and I got accepted to attend the recruitment week which will be coundcted also online in March. I wonder if anybody here has any experience with this program or has attended the recruitment week. I would like to know what happens during this week, how should I prepare and what kind of questions I might get asked. I would be very grateful if anyone could share their experience. Much thanks in advance!
Here's the situation: I have applied to NYU SCPS for the Master of Science in Global Affairs program. The cost of this degree is astronomical. I did my bachelor's with relatively little debt, but I still owe some and have no source of financial support to attend graduate school (FAFSA is my only option). I am very passionate about the IR field and I feel that pursuing a degree is the best way for me to get a job I will really love. Unfortunately, as with many careers / programs in the field, the jobs we will end up with are quite likely going to have a salary that is much lower than the cost of the degree. So what I'm trying to poll is: Is it worth it? Should I put off the degree and pursue a career in this field by other means? i.e. moving to NYC anyways- and try to volunteer or find a part time job and an internship? This would allow me to minimize my debt. Or should I go for it? Rack up the debt in hopes of finding a job in the end? Is there anyone out there that graduated recently from the NYU MSGA program that can share their experience? / Give any advice? I would be greatly appreciative! Or anyone who has pursued a degree in this field at a similar program that can give some insight? DEBT makes me CRAZY!!! Thank you!
