    MT OISE 2017

    Hey, I am wondering who else has applied to the MT program at OISE! What concentration did you apply for, what teachable(s), and what did your application look like? I applied to intermediate/senior for biology & social science. I had volunteer experience in a high school and ~4.0 GPA average in my last two years.

    UPenn IEDP/ Vanderbilt IEPM/ UCL MA

    hi, i got accepted to UPenn IEDP, Vanderbilt IEPM, and i'm waiting for UCL (education and development). all three are masters. can anyone who got accepted or is a current student give some opinions about the degrees? upenn takes 1.5, vandy 2, and ucl 2 years upenn is in phily, so i think better networks? vandy is 2 years and i like this because i'm going quite directly from undergraduate but i think the network and job market might be smaller. and several ppl recommended ucl about development. i'm weighing the pros and cons about these schools right now and any advice would help! thank you in advance
  4. Could anyone please help me with the following: I'm applying for Econ and edu in Teachers College Columbia 2018fall. I realized the program late and submitted on Mar 3. I finished undergrad in UCL, UK with GPA 3.65 and GMAT 710, and some econ and finance related internship experience. But I partly focused on education in my personal statement. Is there any possibility that I can get in? When will be the possible decision time? (I'm facing deposit choices from UCSD and JHU...) Thanks

    Vanderbilt Peabody 2018

    There have been threads for a few other schools this year, but no thread yet for Vanderbilt. Let's get this party started! ? What program did you apply to at Vanderbilt, and what other schools did you apply to? Where have you heard back from so far? I applied to Vanderbilt's Ph.D. in Special Education (Early Childhood), and it's the only program I applied to this year. This has historically been the week that interview invites have gone out for SPED students, so I've been anxiously checking the portal ten times a day for official news. ? I receieved my M.Ed. a few years ago in Vandy's SPED program (and loved it so much that it's my top and only choice)--if you have any questions about that program, Peabody, or Nashville in general, I'm happy to share what I know!
  6. Hi Grad Cafe, I've been selected as a top 3 candidate for full time position in an English department at a community college. I have a final interview with the college president and the dean in a few weeks. Any tips on how to prepare for this? They didn't provide any extra info. I did a teaching demonstration and 60 minutes worth of question and answers in the initial interview. Like many people in the field, I'm feeling a bit desperate for this. It's my only successful application, and I'm terrified of my future if I don't get the job. Thanks for any help!
  7. Four years out of undergrad. Great work experience so far, interning and then later clerking for a year with Speaker of the House of Representatives at the state capitol. Spent last two years working for a large, national nonprofit coordinating a 35,000 person volunteer program. It's been a little less than half a year since I was promoted to Grants Manager in which I apply for and oversee half of a $1.7 million grants budget. Hold a Bachelors of Science, double major in Philosophy and Law. (3.9 GPA) Two study abroads under my belt. Lots of community involvement. Served on a board of directors, built some houses, scholarship panel for several years, etc. Letters of Rec from Speaker of the House, Chief of Staff, and Vice President of the public education foundation in Nashville. All I know personally. I should mention that the Speaker holds a doctorate from Peabody. I took the GRE 3 1/2 weeks ago first time. Got a 305 (148Q; 157V; 4AWA). Retook yesterday and got a 314 (155Q; 159V) I expect my writing to come back at a 4.5-5.0 range. What are my chances of getting into Vanderbilt Peabody's M.Ed. in Leadership and Organizational Performance?
  8. Talking with me mates the other day and one of them was sure his degree was the longest (he's studying to be a doctor). His degree, when he graduates, will read MB BCh BAO (NUI) LRCPI LRCSI. That got me thinking, what is the longest academic degree postnominals out there? P.S. Just for fun, I searched for longer degree titles (including associateships and diplomas awarded by specific universities e.g. DIC, AICSM, ARCS, ARSM, ACGI (from Imperial), AKC (from KCL)) None of these, even combined with a regular degree from these unis, appear to be longer than my friends.
  9. So I've recently been accepted to both UPenn's Urban Teaching Apprenticeship and Teachers College Elementary Inclusive Education program. I'm trying to weigh the pros and cons of both programs, but I'm having trouble deciding! At UPenn I would be getting a Pre-K-4 certification, and at TC it would be 1-6. The UTAP program would be a one-year program, and TC would be two years, or one and a half if I accelerate. Both programs give the opportunity to earn a Special Ed cert alongside Elementary. Right now I would say I'm leaning towards Penn but I also know that TC is very highly regarded in the field of education, whereas Penn is not as well-known. Help!! Anyone else struggling with this decision??
  10. Hi! I am in MAJOR need of advice! Here's the sitch: I live in California. I work for an educational non-profit that I LOVE and care for deeply. I was given an unofficial job offer last week to take over our region as a Regional Manager (making a salary, full-time hours, management experience) for minimum of a one year commitment. DAYS later, I receive awesome news! I have been accepted into the Masters of Arts for Psychology with a focus in Cognition and Neuroscience at NYU!!! NEW YORK OMG! I have dreamt of New York for nearly ten years now and even applied to NYU for my BA out of high school (which I got rejected to). This has been my dream of dreams and it is REAL now. However, I would be a transplant student moving miles and miles away, not knowing anyone, with not nearly enough saved up to steadily live. I am not afraid to work hard to get to where I want, because I've already worked hard to get to where I am. I am really battling with myself if I should attempt to defer my admission for a year and possibly take the unofficial job offer (it's not promised yet) or risk it for my dream of studying what I want where I've always wanted. WHAT DO YOU THINK?!
  11. Seriously confused here. I have very competitive funding at MSU and Peabody. MSU course isn't best suited for me but my advisor is amazing and really well known in the field and in my home country. CRA Peabody course is AMAZING and very much in line with my interests and faculty interests align but I wouldn't have as much support to research in home country. Cambridge and UCL - no funding yet, but thinking about waiting it out. Thoughts?

    Harvard Ed. M. Funding 2018

    Hey! I saw an old thread on this so I figured I'd start another one up for the upcoming year! I was just accepted to the Masters in L & T at Harvard, and I am currently worried quite a bit because I'd obviously love to go to Harvard, but I am afraid of just how much debt I will have to incur to go, for just a year. There are several resources that are available on the Admitted HGSE website, however, I'd like to know if anyone has a good understanding of what previous financial aid packages look like and what we might expect. Thanks!
  13. Hello! In this application season, I've received two PHD offers from mid-tier universities in the field of education. And then this week, I was accepted into a Masters in Education at Harvard! I was shocked to say the least, and after the celebrations cleared, I found myself seriously thinking about getting a second Master's. Both my Bachelor's degree and my Master's degree that I currently have are from the two institutions that have offered the PHD programs to me. The Master's that I currently hold in education was more concentrated on getting me ready to become a certified teacher in my state, whereas the Master's from Harvard, while still centered on education from a teaching and learning perspective, is more broad and more of a meta-understanding of education. Harvard's is a year-long Master's (9 months) as compared to other programs that are closer to two or three years. My question is: If Harvard gives me adequate funding to attend, would this second Master's degree be worth it?

    UCLA GSEIS?

    Hi all! Glad to hear that so many people have gotten interviews and acceptances Best of luck to everyone as we start hearing back more... I saw that several people have started hearing back from UCLA, and was wondering if all the concentrations get notified around the same time, or if they tend to be really spread out? It looks like Urban Schooling has heard back so far... Anyone else heard back from any other concentration?

    UCLA TEP? thoughts?

    Any opinions on UCLA's TEP program from current students/alum? I was curious to hear anyone's thoughts on the program while I await admissions notification And to any applicant: called and they stated decisions would be sent out mid to end of this week! but we will see! good luck to us all
  16. Has anyone heard from the Indiana University's Department of Education? I know they offer several degrees. I have applied for the EdD Literacy, Culture, Language Education online. Applications were due January 15 though, mine was in December 5th. Should the acceptances go out at the same time for PhD and EdD in the same department? It seems like they would. I have not seen anything on the board yet for this year and a year ago they went out on the 13th. I am also unsure about the possibility of funding for an EdD. I would assume that's a no and they would be happy to accept my fully qualified monies. I have tried to be patient, but honestly since February 15th my patience has worn. Its frustrating. There are not a lot of distance programs for an EdD that fit my needs as an educator. I teach in Georgia and Georgia Professional Standards has to approve programs for advancement and they will not approve a Curriculum and Instruction EdD as a new field unless that is a field in the state where the program is located. I really want something that fits my interests and current context. My masters is in Applied Linguistics, I teach French in the IB program. The Indiana program seems to combine everything. Although, I have had some communication issues. Hoping for positive answers soon. Thanks for reading.

    UC Davis Education Ph.D 2018

    Hi Everyone, I'm not sure if anyone else is applying for this program. We don't have much of a presence on the results page over the past 8 years so I was just curious to know if anyone else had applied this season? I haven't heard a peep from Davis, but two rejections supposedly happened in early Feb. Also, compared to previous years it appears that decisions are coming out later than usual? Hopefully, decisions haven't gone out yet, but I guess it's possible that they forgot to reject me. D:
  18. Hello! I've noticed that someone has posted their acceptance from UCI PhD Education! Congrats! and if you can see this, could you reply if you had an interview prior to the acceptance? Anyone else waiting for the result or interview email from the department?
  19. Did anyone else apply to their Ph.D. (or Masters!) programs? I was invited to the "finalist weekend" yesterday and am really excited.

    Northwestern Learning Science

    Hi, I feel a bit too new to open a new topic, but here goes. I just checked on the status page that someone got an interview for cs & ls. Oh no. I am freaking out as this is the first or at least second school on my wishlist and also had thought as application deadlines were so late, that interview emails would come later this month. Plus I saw past posts that said the interviews were on feb! Did anyone else get emails? Does NU send out interview emails over a longer period than just a day? I'm extremely anxious and completely unable to focus on anything else, HELP!
  22. Hey guys! I was wondering if anyone has heard back yet for an interview from the MA Child Study and Education program?

    UCSB (Gevirtz) PhD Education

    Does anybody know if all decisions have been made at UCSB for the Education PhD program? I saw one person nominated for fellowships list an acceptance on the results page last week, and the school website mentions that Admit Day will take place on February 5th, but other than that it has been radio silence. In previous cycles it looks like rejections have gone out about the same time as acceptances so I don't know what to think. Has anybody else heard from them? Starting to get worried...

    HGSE 2017

    Hello, HGSE hopefuls! I started the thread for HGSE last year but ended up not applying due to extremely low GRE scores. I decided to take another year to work, and get more experience in the education sector. So, here are are my stats. Let me know what you think. Be brutal!Applying for M.A I am an international applicant. Program: PSP (practice strand)GRE Score: V 155, Q 140, AWA: 4.0 (will be retaking it)GPA: 3.05 (2 health related withdrawals recommended by the university and some very low grades)Work Experience: multiple internship & volunteer experiences in youth development throughout college (turned my last internship into a full-time job J). 1.5 years as a project coordinator at a leading policy research institution in the world. 8 months of teaching experience at a university outside of the United States. And I just started working on health promotion project among school-age children. Undergrad Institution (Public, Private, Ivy, etc..): international student at a private city school Research Experience: My research experience is limited to my undergraduate years. I am more into project development, management and fundraising rather than research. What Other Schools Are You Applying To: Columbia MSW (no GRE required!) I have visted both HGSE and Columbia MSW open houses. HGSE commnity, that they endearingly call "hugsie", is so warm and close-knit. The curriculum is extremely flexible. The student body is so diverse! P.S. Info about HGSE having 50% acceptance rate is total b.s.
  25. Hello, everyone! I teach Speech & Debate and Mock Trial at the middle and high school level. In the last few years, our program has risen to national prominence; we have over 100 members, a thriving parent group, and significant name recognition (it’s a major reason that we get new students to attend our fledgling school). I have mid-level leadership positions in several public speaking education-related nonprofits, like our state’s High School Speech Association and National Speech and Debate Association. I love my job and position, but want to eventually transition to 1) create/lead competitive education-focused companies and 2) teach other teachers/school systems how to develop strong programs of their own. I think an EdD gives me increased professional credibility in this space. I just completed my online Masters in Organizational Leadership/Learning. It was a very positive experience; I’m better at running teams now, have been offered professional development leadership opportunities at my school, and feel much more confident in my ability to juggle work and school. I want your advice/counsel. Do you think it’s smarter for me professionally to get an online EdD from a well-known university or leave what I’ve built here to get an in-person EdD at a Penn or Harvard in a little while? Does the benefit of an in-person program grossly outweigh the online one in terms of professional credibility and recognition? I’m considering USC, Johns Hopkins, and Vanderbilt in terms of online EdDs—what do you all think fits my profile best? UG GPA: 3.3 from UCLA. Grad GPA: 4.0 from GWU (Online). Work experience: Four years of classroom teaching, team-coaching, community leadership, and nonprofit development. GRE: Haven’t taken yet. Will take both HBX CORe and GRE courses this Spring. I am very confident in my LORs and personal statements.
