I was wondering if anyone had any experience with the Speech-Pathology Master programs at New York University or New York Medical College? I was fortunate to be admitted to both, but even with my research, I can't seem to find too much of a distinction between their programs that can help me decide. I have yet to hear from five schools but since these schools are at the top of my list anyway, I figured I'd start with these. Any insight about the school/program/courses/students/school culture/professors/requirements/etc would be greatly appreciated!
Hello. I just joined the forums because I need help but have no one to ask around me. I just got accepted to Columbia University's MA program in Social-Organizational (IO) Psychology. I understand that the program is mostly designed for students who are looking for a terminal program. I hear it is possible for students to continue their studies into a doctorate but it is not so common because the program itself isn't research based, but rather theory based. However, I don't want to rule out the option to obtain a PhD in case I do decide to continue my studies. The MA program at Columbia does not seem to be the ideal choice IF i decide to go all the way (for a PhD). On the other hand, I have also been accepted to Roosevelt University here in Chicago, for a PhD program. The school might not be as prestigious as Columbia University; however, it does give me an option to continue all the way for a PhD degree from the get go. I understand that Columbia University is a more prestigious institution known around the world, and furthermore, it is possible to continue all the way to a PhD, but I would be the minority and it is not the conventional route. However, If I end up deciding to go to Roosevelt University, it would be a more straightforward path towards a PhD. In conclusion, I guess what I am arguing with myself is whether I should choose a more prestigious school for an MA and limited opportunity for doctorate, or rather a local university where I can obtain an PhD at a more straightforward path. Thank you in advance for your input! I appreciate it.
Hi all, I am a graduating undergraduate senior deciding between master's programs in biostatistics at UNC, Johns Hopkins, and Harvard. I was wondering if anybody had any insight into these programs, because I am having a tough time deciding. My main concerns are difficulty of coursework, "friendliness" of faculty, opportunities open to master's students like research assistantships (since some schools can don't pay much attention to them), opportunities after graduation with a degree from either one, and obviously location. UNC is beautiful, but is living in Baltimore around the School of Public Health as dangerous as everyone says? I really appreciate any help on the topic. Thanks in advance!
Hi, friends! Would it be a bad thing to get my PhD in Social Psychology from the same university from which I got my Bachelor's? It's a great university in rankings, but again--it would be the same one. What are your thoughts?
