    Los Angeles, CA

    any one there to talk about UCLA? I have an admit from UCLA and need to know about the place. It would be good to hear from someone about it - about the campus and life.
  2. I’ve been offered spots at SFU’s masters resource management (for which I will apply to planning stream ) and to Waterloo MA Planning. considerations: - I am interested a diversity of social justice issues, including public health equity and Indigenous rights. I’ve focused a bit already on how environmental policy intersects with health and treaty rights - I have a background in community engagement and social sciences, I think I’m more interested in the social side of things -I want to eventually be back home in BC (been in ON for 5 years) - I’might want to go on to do a PhD, I like research but want also a professional perspective - supervisor at Waterloo has a health focus; supervisor at SFU is planner in environmental impact assessment and has experience in working with co-management - costs may be better at sfu because I can live with my parents What I’m hoping to know: - people’s experience and interests in the mrm program - outcomes of people working in environmental policy - general opinions on my situation. Very anxious about this decision because it means very different things for my future and don’t know which is better. Appreciate any insight!!
  3. Hi, looking for some perspective.... i currently work in a senior administrative role in higher education, following many years in the corporate world. I love working in higher education, butI have been told that under new policies I should enroll in a PhD if I want to continue in my current role. I’ve been looking into suitable part-time PhD programs, and it looks like it will cost me between $60k and $100k over 4 years. i am in my 40s with two young kids and a hefty mortgage (I live in nyc). We’ve also just come out of a period with unexpected financial costs, which burned through a large amount of our savings. I would need to take out loans to pay for a PhD (the university I work at doesn’t pay for doctoral degrees for employees). It’s not like I’m going to get a significant pay raise (if any) from earning the PhD. I just don’t know how I justify the cost of this, yet if I don’t, it means I’ll be demoted in terms of responsibilities and title (although my current salary will remain the same). It will also limit my opportunities going forward. Much as I want to follow this path, i don’t see how it can be a financially responsible decision for my family. Am I missing something?
  4. Hello everyone, Just some quick background. Long story short, I went to college for undergrad full time up until my first semester senior year. Due to personal reasons, I left to take a 2 year break. I went back in Fall 2017 to finish up my requirements and graduated in December. I am planing to apply to graduate school in the next 1-2 years. The school that I am definitely interested in requires a writing sample that is 15-20 pages long from undergraduate work. I have a sample that meets the length requirement. However, it was written about 3 years ago and my writing has evolved since then. I don't have any other recent samples (the final classes that I took were in French and Math). So, I would like to edit the paper that I do have. I was considering reaching out to students in the English department at my local hometown college for assistance in editing my writing sample to make it application ready. Since it is a lengthy paper, I figured that I would likely need to pay said editor for their help. I am not a current student, So I am not eligible to use my alma mater's writing center. Has anybody ever gone this route before? Does anyone have other suggestions for help with getting my paper edited? Does anyone know what a fair price might be for someone to edit a 20 page (about 6,000 words) paper for graduate school admissions? Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thank you!
  5. Not my application season yet, but I'm wondering how much I should be putting aside specifically for apps in the meantime. So, I'm wondering how much you all paid in total, how many programs you applied to, what sort of unexpected fees you ran into, etc. Any and all info is appreciated. Obviously saving up as much as possible is ideal, so I'm looking less for advice about how much I myself should put aside as I am looking for others' experiences and maybe what to expect. Thanks in advance!

    AuD costs

    I am applying to 4 AuD programs. Cost is a huge influence for me, and so I have been calculating all the costs for the different programs. This has been challenging since every school has a different way of breaking tuition down, and I am finding some to be much more clear than others! Is there anyone else out there that is doing this for these schools and could verify I did this right? Any advice is greatly appreciated! Also, I am calculating resident costs, since I am applying to schools only on the Western Exchange Program (since I am from Colorado). The schools I am applying to are: University of Utah (Salt Lake City), University of Colorado (Boulder), University of Northern Colorado, and University of Washington (Seattle) Here is what I have so far! · University of Utah: Cost if resident: o First year Fall semester (13 credits): approx. $4,519.34 o First year Spring semester (12 credits): approx. $4,270.31 o First year Summer semester (9 credits): approx. $3,505.74 o Second year Fall semester (11 credits): approx. $4,021.28 o Second year Spring semester (11 credits): approx.$4,021.28 o Second year Summer semester (6 credits):approx.$2,732.43 o Third year Fall semester (11.5 credits): approx. $4,270.31 o Third year Spring semester (10.5 credits): approx.$3,763.51 o Fourth year Fall (9 credits): approx. $3,505.74 o Fourth year Spring (9 credits): approx. $3,505.74 o Total cost for resident= $38,115.68 University of Colorado Boulder First Year: resident, using estimator · Fall Semester: 13 credits o Credit costs: $5,580 o fees: $927 · Spring Semester: 10 credits o Credit costs: $5,580 o Fees: $927 · Summer Semester: 1 credit o Credit costs: $1,860 o Fees: $780 Second Year: · Fall Semester: 15 credits o Credit costs: $5,580 o Fees: $927 · Spring Semester: 15 credits o Credit costs: $5,580 o Fees: $927 · Summer semester: 8 credits o Credit costs: $4,960 o Fees: $927 Third Year: · Fall Semester: 15 credits o Credit costs: $5,580 o Fees: $927 · Spring Semester: 15 credits o Credit costs: $5,580 o Fees: $927 · Summer Semester: 4 credits o Credit costs: $2,480 o Fees: $808 Fourth Year: 9 credits · Fall Semester: 4 credits o Credit costs: $2,480 o Fees: $808 · Spring Semester: 4 credits o Credit costs: $2,480 o Fees: $808 Total Cost: $57,433
  7. I am super torn between two programs! I want to go into medical SLP and Chicago is my dream city so Rush has been my #1 choice and dream school, but is much more expensive. BGSU is less expensive and still a good all around school. I don't know much about Bowling Green and it seems much less "fun" of a place to be. If anyone has any input I would love the help!
  8. Hey! So I was just accepted to a Master's program, and they are giving 15k (plus insurance). It is conditional to me taking Microeconomics and getting a B or better, but I'm not too concerned with that. I just spent a few minutes calculating some things, and I need another set of eyes. Tuition & Fees: $25700 Housing (cheapest and an 8 minute drive away): $450 per month ($5400) Bills: $6900 *includes car payment, food ($150 per month), cell phone, and car insurance Living Expenses Total: $12300 I also have two education awards totaling 10k. So my calculated cost of attendance is 38k. Subtracting the fellowship and my ed awards it's 13k out of pocket. Does it make sense to take out 13-15k in graduate student loans to handle my day-to-day costs? Also, the school's calculated CoA is 46,633. Am I undershooting my costs? Apartments are kind of high in this area, but the apartments I'm looking at offer the cheapest and probably most convenient living arrangements. Thank you for you help. This is the best offer I've gotten so far.
  9. I had a conflicting interview dates situation that I have finally figured out by scheduling the interviews back to back. But now I am working on figuring out my travel details and I'm a little confused on what to do. Since I will be traveling directly from one school to another, what is the most appropriate way of splitting the cost? Both schools have offered to cover travel costs up to a limit and this would fall under the limit for both schools.
  10. I've been studying outside the US and I am now admitted in a few US Masters programs and trying to figure out the credits system. Basically, they all say something like "30 credits must be completed", does this mean there should be exactly 30 or can I take something like 33 without additional cost as long as I can handle the course load?
  11. Problem: I've been accepted into some incredible programs and now I'm having a truly difficult time deciding between them. I honestly didn't expect to get into more than one or two programs (my undergrad GPA wasn't amazing), so while I'm pleasantly surprised, I'm overwhelmed! I have been accepted at: Georgetown University - MA in Conflict Resolution, No funding University of Denver - MA in International Studies, No funding The Graduate Institute in Geneva - MA in Political Science/International Relations, No funding Here are my thoughts: I'm primarily concerned with international conflict and have particular interest in studying genocide and the implications of genocide when looking at a conflict (hope this isn't too vague). Alright so here is what I'm considering so far, U. Denver and Georgetown are basically the same price, and IHEID might be cheaper unless cost of living proves to be formidable. However, my fiancé is going to work while I'm in school (he is a teacher), so finding a job in the United States might be easier for him. (Also if anyone has any advice on getting him a work visa for Switzerland, I would appreciate more information:D) I'd like to do my PHD later on, but between that and my master's I would like to either work in field, possibly State department, UN, or another reputable large NGO (I'm a very optimistic person). Which programs would help me with this? I know technically all of them seem to have great placement records for jobs , but are there differences in the types of jobs I could get? Would going to a European school exclude me from jobs in the State department? Could going abroad for masters also impact potential future PHD programs? I'm not really sure if an MA from Europe or the States would be weighed the same. And how concerned should I be about prestige? All of these schools are highly influential in this field, but do you think one is "better" than the others?
  12. Hi all, As the excitement of admissions decisions are waning away, I am trying to grasp the reality of paying for my master's degree. I got into my number one choice for higher education - University of Michigan - but now I am trying to figure out how I am going to pay for a program that doesn't offer assistantships. Any advice moving forward? I've filed my FAFSA, and will have an internship during the two-years I am getting my degree, and I may receive some funding from U of M (but not guaranteed). I would really like to look into scholarships, but I am not sure where to begin. Unfortunately, my family can't really help me out here, and I'm using my Teach For America Americorps award to pay off my undergraduate loans. Thanks!
  13. Hi, I've just finished putting myself through college while working full-time (I was attending school part-time)... Basically I'm poor, I don't have family that can support me or help me financially and I have no savings. I didn't plan on going to grad school after college, but my undergrad professors thought I'd have a good chance to be accepted somewhere based on the work I did the last couple of years. I told myself to block out any money worries, to give myself this "great gift", the opportunity to get into a grad program that hopefully will help me further develop my work as an artist, and if I have to get a loan to do it, then that's what I'll be doing. I'm wondering how many folks are in the same boat as me, going for broke, even if they know they'll have to pay for at least part of their education through borrowing.
