Hi. I've been accepted to Teaching Learning and Learship MSEd at Penn GSE and Curriculum and Teaching MA at Teachers College. I was wondering what other people think of these two schools and which school you would pick. I've heard Teachers College at Columbia is seen as "not quite Columbia" because they are an affiliate school whereas Penn GSE is properly a part of UPenn. Just wondering what others think about this and other aspects such as prestige and the course themselves (what is more challenging or how time-consuming they are). Thanks!
Hi! I'm planning on applying for HGSE for Education Policy. I wanted to see if anyone have any experiences in HGSE or heard things about the program. I currently only have 1.5 years of work experience in education consulting in China...so I am worried that they might not like what I do (I essentially help high school students and families plan their activities/study schedule/application for college admissions, but very ETHICALLY). I'm also worried they might consider me as too young..I'll be 2 years out of undergrad by the time I apply. Usually what kind of applicants do HGSE like? Is it true they like people who have worked in the public sector/research more? Is there any program under HGSE that is "easier" to get into than the other? What is the culture like? Would love to have you all share anything you know on it! HGSE is my dream program and the Ed.M in policy and management is exactly what I think I would need to help me achieve my goals. Looking forward to hearing some of your responses! Thanks! Quote
Hi, I am going to be a fourth year undergraduate student at UCSD and I want to apply to teacher credential/masters programs this upcoming cycle (so I can get right into it after graduation). I was a Human Biology major for the first three years, since I used to be pre-med, but discovered through the med school application process I did NOT want to be a doctor. I remembered I always liked the idea of teaching. My mom is an elementary school teacher, so I have at least some idea of what the lifestyle is like. My (ultimate) goal is Stanford, but I also want to apply to UC Berkeley, UCLA, USC, and UCI. My goal is to teach Math at the Secondary level. Here are some more facts and stats about myself: Major: Mathematics/Applied Science GPA (overall): 3.55 GPA (math): 3.81 (does my math GPA get taken into consideration?) GRE (practice tests): 159V 165Q Experience: I volunteered every summer at an LAUSD elementary school to help immigrant elementary students learn English under the supervision of a teacher (but not through the school, I just knew the teacher) (This volunteering experience was done for fun throughout undergrad, but only during summers since I go to UCSD.) Also, after realizing I wanted to be a high school math teacher, I immediately started volunteering in SD for a program that takes middle and high school students from highly disadvantaged backgrounds and tutors and guides them in their path to be a first generation college student. (Planned) Letters of Rec: I know it is rushed to ask for a letter before December 1, but that's when the first of the applications are due. I plan on asking the teacher at the elementary school, the volunteer coordinator at the SD volunteering org, and a physics professor I've gotten to know a little better last year. (I have had two lunches with this professor, but does it matter that he is a physics professor and not math? I do not know any of my math professors, and getting to know them before December through OH is rushed, since school starts mid/late September for UCSD.) Here are some stats for the schools I want from a kind user here on gradcafe Anyhow, I was hoping to get some insight from people who got into these programs, mostly Stanford tbh, its my dream school. Plus, I love that their program is accelerated into 1 year for the credential and masters. Maybe one tidbit of info that my physics professor can add is that in order to avoid paying for online HW, I finished the quarter's worth of physics HW in the two weeks of the online HW trial period (my answers to the HW were 100% correct). This can possibly speak to my ability in accelerated programs? LOL. I should also mention that the physics class was a lower division class. I am sorry for the disorganized way I presented this info, I am just pouring all my thoughts as they come to me. Also, what else can I do to bolster my application? Any advice? Please help!! Thank you!
Good Afternoon everyone! I had a quick question about a potential list of schools that offer fully funded masters programs in education for the majority of their students? It would be greatly appreciated if only those with experience and those whom are related answered. Thank you so much!
