  1. Hello! Long-time lurker, first-time poster here. I applied to both Vanderbilt (Organizational Leadership) and JHU's ED.D (Entrepreneurial Leadership in Education) programs and am anxiously awaiting JHU's result (I received my rejection letter from Vanderbilt last week). As someone with a strong early childhood education background, however, I'm wondering if being in this specific niche might have hindered my chances of getting into either Ed.D program at all. It just seems like many of these programs are geared towards K-12 or higher education. I received both my Bachelor's (Applied Learning and Development) and Master's (Curriculum & Instruction, Early Childhood Education) from UT Austin and am a curriculum writer for a preschool franchise in Texas. I've never worked as an educator in the K-12 sector. If I get rejected from JHU as well (which seems very likely, as their acceptance rate is very low) I'm just wondering how to improve on my application as I explore other options. I've brought this question up to both schools during my application process and received pretty vague answers about how their classes might fit in with early childhood education. Any insights would be greatly appreciated!
  2. Got into TC Ed.D program. No news of funding yet. Anyone heard back about funding from them? or if you are a current student, whats the funding like?
  3. Hello! I'm interested in applying to the Doctor of Education in SLP at TC Columbia in the future and would like to get some information from anyone who attended or has applied. I'm interested in knowing how the program is structured (classes, research, and possibility of having a job while studying), how selective the application process is, how much work experience applicants typically have and so on. I'm also wondering if there is any funding available (I've heard it's scarce) and whether the experience overall was a good one. I hope to get a Bilingual Extension Institute certificate from TC before applying for the doctorate and possibly get a better idea about the school. Any info would be helpful. Thanks!
  4. Hi, everyone! I've been scrolling through posts on this site and finally decided to give in and create an account! I'm currently a junior in my undergrad but need to start preparing for the application process to graduate school. Through ample internships, I've fallen in love with higher education administration. I have two primary questions that I cannot seem to find answers to elsewhere: 1. What is the likelihood that one may be accepted into an Ed.D. program straight from undergrad? All of the research I've done thus far indicate they require a master's degree. 2. I've been looking at various master's programs, (TC, HGSE, UPenn) but have yet to find any information on the student population makeup of these groups. I was wondering if anyone would be able to give insight into the student consistency of these higher education programs? More specifically, do these programs include many students directly from undergraduate studies or are they more early/mid-career heavy? If anyone could please contribute, I'd truly appreciate it! -grad_girl
  5. I am planning on applying for a Ph.D (and maybe an Ed.D program) in Curriculum and Instruction (with a sub-interest for urban education) for Fall 2012. After spending countless hours researching on the web, I cannot find out whether or not I have a competitive chance of getting in. I feel like I have to much I can offer the field and it is so depressing that I am capable of delivering research to panels of people, yet I freeze up and bomb the math section of the GRE and now my aspirations are potentially crushed. Basically, I think I have a pretty strong application overall, but I bombed the GRE. I know that many of you are going to say re-take it, but while I have proven that I am pretty successful academically, I simply freeze up on standardized tests. =( Below is my application information: Undergrad GPA: 3.76 Graduate GPA (M.A., English): 3.8 Publications/Research: One publication Teaching Experience: 8 years . . . 6 years in a challenging urban school, 2 years international/elite private in Istanbul, Turkey +lots of leadership experience and responsibilities at each school GRE: 1110 V: 580 (82%) Q: 530 (32% . . . ouch, I know) AW: 4.5 Languages: Native English, Intermediate Spanish, Intermediate Turkish Schools I am applying to: University of Texas Austin, George Washington, Texas A & M, University of Maryland, Boston College, UMass Any advice or clarity on this issue would be helpful!!!
