  1. Hey guys! I hope you're all well. After I finish my undergrad in a years time, I'm really keen on doing a masters in political science focusing on International relations and American politics. I'm from Europe and hoping to do my masters in Columbia Uni. I know our education system is different to the American one so I was wondering what the work load is like as a grad student especially for people attending Columbia? How many hours of classes do you have a week and how many essays do you have a week? If one is organised and dedicated is it all manageable? What are your assignments like? I saw
  2. For all those waiting it out
  3. Hey everyone, I got into Teachers Columbia for their Developmental Psychology program (MA) and into Vanderbilt University for their Human Development Studies (M.Ed) course. I wanted to know which one of these has better employability. I look forward to working after my masters. The course at Vanderbilt is terminal and the one at Teachers College is non terminal. I just wanted to know which one is better for me. I am also considering a PhD. But I am yet to fully dedicate myself to that path. I am an international student, so, STEM is another major factor. TC offers me a STEM extension. V
  4. Can anyone speak to either of these programs? Better yet, can anyone tell me how Computing in Education at TC is viewed, in comparison to Instructional Technology & Media?
  5. Anyone heard back yet?
  6. Hi everyone, I am an international student in comparative politics and was admitted to both programs. I am trying to make a decision between these two. I wanna figure out if I am capable of doing a Ph.D. during the year of my MA program. Any suggestions? What are the strengths and weaknesses of both programs and both institutions, and which would you rather choose, supposing that money isn’t a major concern? Thanks!
  7. Need grad school advice please! I got accepted into Columbia's MPH in the Sociomedical Sciences department & Oxford's MSc in International health and tropical medicine and need to pick one. For context, I've done Sociology from the Uni of Edinburgh, and am now a health editor in India. I want to study public health, specifically women's health and look at the structural inequalities in healthcare. I'm still waiting on my funding and scholarships but for now: Columbia is more expensive (big con) but I am excited with the course content and can dabble in many courses, and
  8. I recently finished the application season (Masters) and have the following acceptances: UCSD, Duke, Columbia, Boston University, Northwesterm These are amongst others (Yale, Berkeley, Cornell, Michigan, UCLA, etc.) however they were either one year or non-thesis programs, or the university's main focus was not BME so I have decided to throw those out. Again if you think that isn't a wise decision please let me know. I have also been waitlisted at Hopkins, and am looking to accept that should I get in. Anyone familiar with these schools that can help me out? I am looking ve
  9. Hello world! Has anyone done the video response as part of SIPA's admissions package? I know it's being implemented as of 2017 application cycle, so I am wondering if there are any Spring 2017 candidates that have already done it. Helpful tips, feedback, etc. would be much appreciated!
  10. Ladies and Gentlemen of the forum, I am new to this, so please excuse my mistakes if any. I am an undergrad in pharma sciences but what i want for my masters is something related to public policy and governance, that topic catches my attention anyday. The pandemic has left me pondering more over how well health graduates with the proper background and training could tackle world wrecking health problems. I have tried exploring quite a few options but most of the public policy schools seem to ask for experience. One school am particularly interested is the GraSPP at
  11. Hi all! I applied and was accepted to both NYU and Columbia, and am trying to choose between the two. I would love anyone's opinions on the two, and also wanted to create a thread for NYU and CU folks who applied, were accepted, and/or committed?
  12. Hello! I’ve been doing my due diligence and research trying to find MSW programs and schools that have a macro concentration. Specifically with a policy specialization. I’m in NY and have been attending multiple online Information sessions so I could apply by the priority deadlines for Fall 2021. (I will be an Advanced Standing student) Through the postings on here I have read and learned that once licensure is secured, career options mostly depend on field work, volunteer opportunities and how well you’ve networked. I was hoping someone could offer guidance on their decision maki
  13. Hey all, I feel really fortunate to have been accepted into both the Columbia School of Journalism and NYU's Carter Institute. I'm looking to do a joint IR/journalism degree, so at Columbia that's a joint degree program with SIPA, while at NYU it's the GloJo program. I love NYU and have gotten an awesome scholarship package from them, whereas I've gotten a very small amount of funding from Columbia. Seems like a no-brainer to choose NYU in this situation, but I'd be curious to hear other people's opinions more broadly on NYU journo vs. Columbia journo.
  14. I have three admits from these universities, I have interest in robotics so all my MS Mechanical admits have a specialization in Robotics. They all are going to cost almost the same, so that's not a factor right now. I have interest in CS and business as well and am hoping to take some courses from that as well. Also, considering I am hoping to get a TAship and a well paying job in the robotics industry later I don't know which to choose. Technically, CMU has the Robotics Institute which is the best in the world for robotics, that's kind of a no brainer for me as of now, but still confuse
  15. Hello everyone, Need help evaluating profile and shortlisting universities. I am aiming for Operation Research(PhD or MS) / Data Science(MS) I have good experience in working on optimization, mathematical modelling and Applied ML I have degree in bachelor in EE GRE: 322(169Q + 152V) (I don't know if this is anymore useful since all Top programs have waived GRE) TOEFL: yet to attempt GPA: 7.85 Under Graduate Research Assistant for 2 years Papers: 4 papers in moderate to good IEEE conferences & 1 paper submitted to top Journal(all fir
  16. Hi there! I got an offer from Master of Science in Real Estate Development in Columbia U and another from Baker Program in Real Estate in Cornell U. Real estate is not a main stream choice so I cannot find discussions about these two programs. And here's my comparison. Columbia: Pros: 1. Famous around the world (Yes I'm an international applicant); 2. Location, location and location, it's much easier for you to have a coffee chat with someone you really want to build up a connection with; 3. Better ranking than Cornell Cons: 1. Total cost of $134K
  17. 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!!
  18. Hi everyone, Long time lurker, first time poster. Wondering if anyone could provide some insight on my candidacy for applying to a terminal MA program in history. I feel a little overwhelmed about applying to US schools as a Canadian, and I don't have a GRE score (which, understandably precludes me from many schools). Nonetheless, I'm interested in applying to Yale, NYU, McGill, UBC, and the LSE/Columbia joint MSc program in international history. To be honest, I'm desperate to get some information about where I stand. I know this is hard to answer but I'm trying to ascertain wheth
  19. I thought I would start a thread for Columbia. I will be a student in their art history MA program; despite all of the uncertainty, I am still looking forward to the fall.
  20. Hi! Is anyone else applying for masters programs in marketing? I barely see any updates for this on the front page
  21. Hi all, I have scheduled my 1:1 video interview with the admission team. Anyone would mind to give some insights around questions that they'll ask or what is the interview looks like? Really appreciated!
  22. Hi everyone! My decision process has kind of been turned on its head, so I wanted some outside perspective. Just last week, I committed to Johns Hopkins SAIS (MA), where I received a really generous scholarship offer of $80k for the 2 years. However, today Columbia SIPA (MIA) matched the offer and slightly more, so now I am seriously considering it. Within the IR framework, I’ll be concentrating in security/conflict resolution with a further focus on the Middle East. I want to use grad school as a way to open myself up to career opportunities, but want to focus on the diplomatic tra
  23. Hi, has anyone heard anything back from the biotech MA program at Columbia? My application status online still says submitted. I emailed them over a month ago to provide some updated info, and at the same time, they mentioned that the lock-down would affect their admissions timeline. I can't find any evidence online of any results so far but I don't want to assume anything just based on that.

  25. Hi! I'm making my decision as to where to go to graduate school next fall to get my master's in social work. I've been accepted to USC, NYU, and Columbia and I'm having a very very very hard time making a decision! I've received scholarships from NYU and USC, which help with the tuition, but by no means cover it. With all being said and done USC will still wind up costing me about 80k for the two years (before financial aid) NYU will wind up costing me 60k (before financial aid) and Columbia will be a whopping 100k (before financial aid or scholarship info). I want to focus on
