  5. I'm trying to decide between schools for a PhD in Education and Oregon State University is the only one I won't be able to visit. I would love to hear from anyone who's taken classes at the College of Education at Oregon State. What do you think of the professors? What are the classes are like, especially if you took any online Education classes? What about the College of Ed. as a whole - is it supportive of its students? Any advice, criticism, praise, etc. that you may have would be great! Doesn't matter if you took classes as an undergrad, Masters, or PhD student. I really just want to know whether you feel you received a quality education and whether you have any complaints. Thanks!
  6. Hi, I am looking for some advice as I try to decide which school to attend for my PhD. I was fortunate enough to be accepted to two programs, with a possible third on the way. I was not admitted to my first choice, which was CU Boulder.Any help or perspectives would be much appreciated. I have 4 years experience teaching high school Spanish and History, as well as an MA in International Administration from the Korbel School of International Studies at the University of Denver. I want to study international comparative education and examine approaches to issues of immigration and education in other countries vs. the U.S. This includes transition and access to higher education, second language acquisition, and language immersion programs domestically and abroad.So, I have been accepted to UC Santa Cruz and the University of Pittsburgh. UCSC offered tuition, including health insurance expenses. There was encouragement regarding the possibility of TA and RA positions in the first or second year. Pitt did not offer funding, and the current students I spoke with both self-funded for the first two years. Here's where I am currently- both options seem good:UCSC:Pros- gorgeous campus, UC system, small school (110) and class size, excellent (hr+) conversations with future advisor, paid tuition, can work 1/2 timeCons- cost of living in Santa Cruz, relatively low ranking, Dept of Ed vs. School of Ed, less prestigePitt:Pros- prestigious, highly ranked program, internationally known advisor, research university, proximity to familyCons- big move geographically, 35K cost for tuition plus living expenses, little time for work during the first year (at least), large grad school (900)Thanks in advance for your help and advice!I also have been offered a contract to keep teaching at my current high school. I could defer and try to apply again to fully funded programs, though I'm not sure what would change about my application other than retaking the GRE's and revising my statement.
  7. I am just wondering for Education related Ph.D., how likely is it to be accepted if you get an interview invitation, and how likely is it to be rejected if you do not get an interview invitation? I have some friends studying in very top education programs, and most of them did not get interview invitations. They are telling me to wait until the end of Feb. to see the final result, and no need to worry about the January thing. Is this true? Anybody has any sure-information? Thanks!
