  1. Hey Everyone! I haven't seen a thread for Teachers College at Columbia University! I thought I would start the thread with my program of choice and stats. I think we all would love for people to ask questions, share stats, share acceptances/denials. :) Program: Higher and Post Secondary Education GPA: 3.81 Undergrad Major: Sociology I'm really scared about this whole process and anticipating results!!
  2. Hi everyone, it looks as if cohort groups in previous years start a topic forum and use it as a type of support group while we wait to hear back from OISE. I haven't seen a topic for Fall 2020 applications, so I thought I started one. I was wondering if anyone has received an invitation for an interview from the MA Child Study and Education program?
  3. Happy Wednesday! I wonder if any of you are also waiting for a notice from Harvard about whether you'll get a chance to interview for the Fall 2020 Ed.L.D. cohort! And if anyone has intel about when invitations are likely to come out, I would love to hear it! Thanks and good luck!
  4. Hey! I applied to the Leadership and Policy program at Peabody and I'm having a rough time with this whole waiting it out period. Super anxious to hear about decisions! I created the thread for other fall 2020 applicants in the same boat. Feel free to share where else you applied and what contact with faculty in the department has been like!
  5. Can anyone tell me how the course is? I am looking for courses that focuses on international education in developing countries. I am having a hard time finding enough reviews or resources on the colleges I am applying. Would appreciate any help
  6. Hello Everyone, I didn't find a form for CSULB School counseling so i decided to start one. For those who have applied to the program and feel comfortable sharing your stats, please do! Good luck everyone! GPA: 3.15 Internships/Extra Curricular activities: BBBS Org: Mentor | Fullerton College: Higher Education advocate | Orange County Community Housing Corporation: Academic Advisor | Human Services Student Association: Membership Chair I don't have the best GPA and know how competitive it is to get into the program at Cal State Long Beach but i am hoping that my internship and SOP helps me land an interview. Throughout my time in college, i have worked 40+ hrs a week, gone to school FT, and have managed to take on a couple internships. Currently, my application has been sent to the department and is under review. Once again, GOOOOOOOD LUCK!
  7. Hi, This is my first GRE issue writing. The topic is " The best way to teach is to praise positive actions and ignore negative ones". I look forward to reviews. Thank you. Praising positive actions is definitely one of the best ways of teaching. By instilling positiveness and encouraging a student’s behavior, we can plant confidence in their minds and souls. Confidence is crucial to one’s development in that life is full of ups and downs, but confidence helps one set up their goals, be resolute and never set back when met with difficulties. In the book of a famous educator, Emile: ou De l’education, we witnessed cases of loving and nurturing parenting that make a child from mediocre to excellence. Positive education is the initiating agency that helps brought out the best of children. Secondly, there are rules to follow through praising positive actions. By emphasizing positive behavior, the teachers leave an impression on students’ minds about what is right or wrong. Therefore, students not only have a real role model around their lives, which can be a positive trigger, but also, have a live ‘behavior code book’ to follow. For example, students learn how to cooperate with others by watching and observing teachers encourage group projects. On the other hand, too much appraisement of a particular student may make him proud, also, the student is likely to become the teacher’s ‘pet’, hence he or she might be isolated. Last but not least, there are other good ways to teach, for example, giving clear instructions, scaffolding, doing active in-class activities such as jingsaw, and doing experiments. Therefore, there are no priorities among these methods of teaching. Moreover, prasial of positive actions does not necessarily stand for ignoring negative ones. Students are all like tree buds, only through trimming and pointing where they need to improve, can students prosper into big trees. For example, during class, if a student talks so loud with his neighbors, it is the teacher’s obligation to stop him on time and remind others that it is inappropriate to disturb others when they are learning, so that students get a clear idea of what appropriate in-class behavior shall be. Therefore, I firmly stand that positive actions shall be praised timely as an encouragement, whereas misbehavior shall be pointed out wisely and help students correctify them.
  8. Is there anyone on this forum that has a PhD in educational policy? If so, what do you do in terms of a job? I'm interested in educational policy and debating on whether I should apply to a PhD program but I'm not sure if it's worth it considering that it might be very competitive to get a job afterwards(that is, working for the Georgia DOE or working as a college professor). I would like to talk to someone who already has it and weigh the pros and cons. Thanks in advance!
  9. Does anyone know when we'll be hearing back from San Jose State's Counselor Education program? I'm an undergraduate, and I applied for their Master's in Education with a concentration in Counseling and Student Personnel with a Pupil Personnel Services (PPS) credential.
  10. Hi, I have already received the admission letter from Master of Arts program in International Educational Development at Teachers College, Columbia University and Master of Education program in Child Studies at Peabody, Vanderbilt University. I'm from China and want some advice for my decision. Here are my expectations: 1. To build a solid foundation of knowledge in education, including research skills in specialized aspects(such as developmental psychology) and strategic view of macro policy. I want to relate good-quality products with needs of real world, which requires strong insights. As for my professional goals, I want to be a specialist in educational intervention design in the short term and a leader in the long term. 2. To make friends with interesting, outstanding and steady classmates. 3. To focus on study and practice 4. To find a job with reasonable salaries after graduation 5. To balance life and study during graduate school Thanks a lot if you do have some suggestions😊
  11. I am a 2nd year graduate student in a masters biology program. My field of research is cardiovascular disease. Specifically, I research the genetic expression and protein secretion profiles of unique adipose tissue depots in patients with coronary artery disease. I do not have any publications at this point in my career. Although, I have been fortunate enough to obtain ~$13,000 in competitive grant funding and fellowships. I am currently working on a mini-review and hope for my thesis research to be published, once completed. Due to a setback in my research, I will be staying in this program for 1 additional year; graduate May 2020. I have already completed all of the required coursework for the degree, just need to finish the thesis research. Although, due to the requirements for some of the grants that I have I must maintain full-time graduate status (9 units). This semester I have enrolled in 2 MBA courses (economics and operations management). I figured because I know nothing about business, and am in a STEM field, these courses would be interesting and prove worthwhile...I am loving it! I am able to use my analytical skills in a whole new way. This has put me in an interesting position between going for the PhD or the MBA. I am seriously considering applying to the MBA program at my university, fall 2019 start, as I am interested in research funding and development. It is a 2 year program. I recently turned 25, I would finish with both masters programs by age 27. If I go for the PhD it would be in biomedical sciences, or something closely related. Preferably studying coronary artery disease and working with humans as the model organism. I am seeking advice. I know 27 is not THAT old and I can definitely still continue on and complete a PhD. I would like to work more so in a management or consultant role rather than as an active scientist.
  12. Anyone else applying for a PhD in Special Education for Fall 2019? I've submitted 4 applications (Vanderbilt, Harvard, University of Texas at Austin, and University of Minnesota) and might do one more (George Mason) as that app isn't due until Jan 15th. I just heard back from the University of Minnesota, but am still waiting on any sign from the other institutions. Anyone else in the same boat?
  13. How good is Harvard’s technology innovation education program and how does it compare to other programs? Also what are similar programs?
  14. Hey guys! (First post) Program: Masters in EducationGRE Score: VR:152 Q:160 AWA:3.5 (I will be taking it again)GPA: 7.8/10 undergraduate Work Experience: 2 years with Teach For India after my undergraduation Undergrad/Grad Institution (Public, Private, Ivy, etc..): One of the best universities in India with an Economics major I am interested in pursuing my masters in education policy and I am looking at HGSE, Standford and UPenn (in that order) as of now. I would love some tips for my SOP, schools which I can apply to and the kind of work experience which Ed.M. looks for. Should I get more work experience and maybe apply in 2021? I am especially keen on HGSE's EPM and L&T Program. Thank you!
  15. I applied for the Masters of arts in business economics (MABE) program in Wilfrid Laurier University November. I was informed that admission decisions are made in mid February but i am yet to hear from Laurier. I would like to know if anyone has heard from Laurier with respect to MABE admission for the fall 2019.
  16. Hello! I've noticed that someone has posted their acceptance from UCI PhD Education! Congrats! and if you can see this, could you reply if you had an interview prior to the acceptance? Anyone else waiting for the result or interview email from the department?
  17. 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.
  18. 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) admitted with $15,000 scholarship NYU MA in Education and Social Policy - admitted with $500 fellowship at Education and Social Policy Institute Background about me: I'm an international student. My interests lie in the role of education policy as a tool for mitigating inequality in society. I hope to work in a think tank in the US after graduation. I'd appreciate any help, especially from people who have experience in any of these programs, on sorting out which programs best suit me. As an international student from a developed country, I don't qualify for many scholarships other than the merit-based scholarships offered at admission and am concerned about investing in a degree that will not maximize my employment potential in the long term. I'm also happy to answer questions as well, if anyone has any about the admissions process!
  19. 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?
  20. 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 Vandy's SPED program (and loved it so much that it's my top and only choice)--if you have any questions about that program, Peabody, or Nashville in general, I'm happy to share what I know!
  21. 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 they addressed it to me. So my first question is: Am I expected to reach out to the two interviewers to show interest in the program or something? Or do I just wait for the interview? I hear so much on this forum about POI stuff. Is that related? (This is just masters though.) Also, the deadline for my program was January 15. They said they wouldn’t even begin looking at applications until then. But I submitted my application almost two weeks early, and shortly after that, they sent me an invitation email to an open-house-and-interview event for that program. (An interview is required for my program.) Other than my name, the email seemed generic. But it had a broken link to an RSVP page, so someone from the admissions office personally wrote to me with more information. And that’s how I signed up for the alternate Skype interview. Do you think this a good sign (since I got an invitation before the application deadline even passed)? Or do you think this is just something sent out to everyone who applied for that program since they require an interview? I heard that PhD applicants usually get rejected if they don’t get an interview. But I’m not sure about whether that also applies to a masters program’s open-house-and-interview event, especially when an interview is required for admission. Any advice/comments would be appreciated. Thanks!
  22. 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 Google. I hold a bachelor of commerce at McGill University, and I am also currently pursuing a masters of science in decision analysis (kind of a data science masters) at Minerva Schools. How does the school look at applicants who already holds masters? Thank you so much for your help!
  23. 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?

  25. 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.
