I have recently been admitted into ESIA and am pretty excited about pursuing grad school. I've been out of school for at least 6 years (don't want to give age away) and have a very specific interest in International Affairs in the Latin American region. I would like to hear experiences from both full time and part-time students. I will be working full time as well while going to school part time. I understand it's how you make the most out of your education. With that said, based on what you have put in and have gotten out of it - how has your experience with ESIA been? I've listed a few questions that I have which would be helpful to me but think this could help other too. Questions: 1. Part Time or Full Time? 2. Which MA program and concentration at ESIA? 2a: What made you decide to pursue that program out of the other offers you had (if any)? 3. How much work experience did you have upon starting at ESIA? 4. Are you working full Time? If so, what have you experienced with class workload? 5. Opinions on general Class Size and Faculty? 6. Experience with Career Services (approachable, effective, giving you practical knowledge and help? 7. Any additional tips for recently admitted grads to ESIA? Thank you so much!
Please help! I am currently trying to decide between an MSW program at either CSUN or SDSU. There are a lot of pros and cons to both, but I am interested to see what those here on the forum could tell me about these programs. What should I be placing most emphasis on when deciding? What are the reputations for these schools? How are both schools in regards to preparing students for licensing? CSUN: Pros: close to home (could potentially save money by living at home); an urban generalist approach (will maybe give me a more well-rounded experience); capstone project in final year; Los Angeles is a booming city for social work Cons: maybe the "safe" or boring option because it is close to home; maybe not ranked as high as SDSU (I am not sure about the reputations) SDSU: Pros: move to San Diego would be new and exciting; concentrations might allow me to become more of an expert in one topic Cons: Might cost most with living expenses Tuition is about the same. I have received some aid from SDSU, but I have not gotten my financial aid package from CSUN yet so it is hard to say what the final numbers will be. I would really appreciate any tips or insight that anyone could give me on CSUN and/or SDSU's programs, San Diego and Northridge in general, and simply the entire deciding process. It is a big decision, but such a hard one to make! Thank you!!
A program I'm considering sent the email addresses of current MS students who agreed to answer questions. What should I ask them? So far I've considered: Program preparedness for PhD vs. job market Degree of mentorship for thesis/final project Living situation in neighborhood by University
