  1. I was accepted to the Middlebury Institute of International Studies at Monterey for International Education Management with a 50% scholarship. Does anyone know much about the program? I've heard good things about the school but I haven't been able to find out much about the program because it's so small. Is it widely known in the field? What are their connections and networking opportunities like? I'd like to work in the Bureau of Educational and Cultural affairs in the future. Because they tend to offer so little funding, I'm worried that my classmates won't be in the top tier. Is it worth waiting to hear from NYU Steinhardt and Columbia TC?
  2. This year HGSE has a new section for international students to demonstrate English proficiency. It is called Video Response. Optional but strongly recommended for anyone who does not meet their TOEFL requirements (26 minimum in each section). My TOEFL total score is above 104 but my speaking session is less than 26. I'm debating between retaking TOEFL and doing this video response. I don't like talking to a machine to be honest. I heard there were interviews last year but admission office says they are using this video response instead for this year's application. Has anyone done it? What are the prompts you were asked during the 60 seconds? Any advice?

    CSULB SCHOOL COUNSELING FALL 2017

    Hi guys, I noticed there isn't any School Counseling information here so I decided to create a thread. I only applied to CSULB School Counseling program for fall 2017. Had my interview March 18 and was notified via email on April 6 that I am on the wait list I was wondering if any of you that were accepted to csulb program are not going there after all? I don't know where I am in the list they wont let us know... I am so hopeful someone decides to go to another program or the program is able to get more funding (PLEASE!!!) just wanted to see where everyone is at right now, thank you guys!

    deciding GSEs to apply to

    Hi! I'm a junior at a competitive (top 10) US university studying chemistry and computer science. I'm starting to look at options in education to become a middle or high school science teacher, applying to masters programs next fall for a start term of Fall / summer 2020. I have no idea where to even start figuring out my chances at some programs (I've fallen in love with Stanford STEP program) and have no idea what makes an applicant competitive. This is where I'm at statistically: GPA 3.70 (higher in my chemistry classes, which is what I'd look for certification in) 3+ semesters of chemistry research, with results presented at international conference, looking for a publication soon Working on an independent study evaluating training of undergrads in tutoring programs and designing stronger training (looking to present results at poster sessions on campus) 3 summers of a teaching fellowship (science) at Breakthrough Collaborative. Likely to receive a very positive letter of recommendation from there. Teaching Assistant for chemistry and computer science class I'm a varsity athlete on a nationally ranked team too Haven't taken the GRE yet, but I am hopeful I can test well. I am most concerned right now with writing a meaningful and strong statement of purpose / application essays, as my writing experience is limited haha... I'm looking for a strong program with a strong alumni network to get me into science education, maybe setting my sights on a PhD eventually but definitely want to teach first. Looking for a program with strong field experience components and a solid community among the cohort / class. I have no idea where to start looking, or what the acceptance rates are like, or how many programs I should be looking at applying to next fall?
  6. 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
  7. Hello! I am beginning the process to apply for the MA in Education with a concentration in Counseling and Student Personnel at SJSU. Just wanted to see if there was anyone else out there in the same boat?
  8. Hello everyone! First time poster. I just finished my undergraduate degree and am working in a role related to that degree (business) for the time being. I was an RA in college and quickly realized that was what I wanted to pursue as a career, so I'm hoping (once I make a solid dent in my undergrad loans) to go back to school and get my graduate degree in student affairs. I've been researching it, starry-eyed and hopeful and I'm honestly really overwhelmed by my options. I have many questions and am hoping I can find some answers here! I've reached out to my mentors from college reslife but the more input the merrier! Any stand-out awesome programs? I'd like to stay on the west coast, but I'm not opposed to traveling if it means I pay less tuition. It seems like there is a large variety of titles for the degree, including college counseling, student affairs, higher education leadership, etc. Are there any pros/cons to one over another? Are there any programs in this field that are fully funded? I know there are options to be a Graduate Assistant, but it's hard to tell based on the websites which cover the entire tuition. Thank you in advance, wonderful internet people! 😁
  9. Hi everyone, I need some help figuring out which degree I should pursue. I'm an entry-level coordinator of undergraduate student programs. My career is going to be focused on College Access, Equity, and Success. I want to explore this in a variety of professional opportunities such as college counseling in high schools and education nonprofits, student affairs, education policy, and eventually teaching. I know that I wouldn't dive into policy and teaching until way later in my career when I've built up an extensive amount of professional experience in the field. Which means as of now I'll be focusing my professional opportunities on coordinating programs and providing services to students at various stages in their educational journeys from pre to post-college. Knowing this... which degree should I pursue? I love how broad the MPA is, the applicability of the skills learned to higher education administration, and the possibility for diving into government and policy later on. But I also recognize how specific the MEd is thus the much more sense it makes to pursue that especially in the early and middle stages of my career. These were some options I came up for myself and wanted your feedback on: MEd in Student Affairs or Education, Culture, Society or Sociology of Education and get a certificate in some skills on public and nonprofit performance management MEd in Higher Education Administration and get a certificate in College Access and Diversity and/or Student Affairs MPA and get one or both of the same certificates in College Access and Diversity and/or Student Affairs These programs are a combination of different schools that offer both on-campus and online formats. I'm not sure if I'd complete the certificates at the same time as the degrees but do them right after. But what do you think of these options? As you see there's a multitude of MEd programs to choose from but I feel each misses a something from the other. Some either focus on education broadly and not enough on higher education, some are more theoretical and research heavy and don't have enough practical skills in management, finances, organization, etc. some dive into the politics, history, philosophy and sociology of education which I love because it eventually focuses on College Access and Equity but again offer not many practical skills. I'm basically trying to find the perfect program combination that will combine all of this relevant content and the practical skills needed to succeed in this field. Other suggestions aside from I listed are welcomed such as pursuing one program for my master's and the other for a doctorate or second master's if necessary.

    HGSE Fall 2019 applications

    Hi all, I've 6 years of work experience in sales and marketing consulting, and 7+ years in social space as a volunteer for educational initiatives, including leading the CSR engagements at my firm for over 4 years now. I'm now looking for opportunities to move full-time in this space, so am planning a masters in education as a first step because that's where my heart lies; I've worked in education for the last 7 years on a pro-bono/voluntary basis over and above my full-time job. GRE: VA - 154, QA - 165, AWA - 4 TOEFL: Result awaited GPA: Yet to do a WES evaluation, but I've 80.59% from Delhi University in India. Work Ex: 6 years in Sales and Marketing Consulting Pro-Bono/Voluntary experience: 7+ years in Education , including leading the CSR engagements for over 4 years now. I'm leading the engagements with a learning centre near my office, and have designed 3 programs - Math/Science remedial, Spoken English, and Career Counseling. Masters Programs I'll be applying for fall 2019: IEP/TIE at HGSE (can anyone help me figure out), IED at TC, UCB programs, SSCE at UCLA, Upenn I'm more inclined to US programs because of the job prospects, but would like to hear reviews about UCL, Oxford, and Cambridge (EU vs. US). I aim to leverage my corporate experience experience and work in international education space, either in content building, policy implementation, or school leadership. I know 3 options is a long list but will want the program to help make a better choice. My objective is to improve the overall quality of education and change the way we teach. We have been teaching the same age-old skills and curriculum which is not even relevant in the modern day. It will be great if you can help me choose programs where I can leverage my consulting/corporate skills. Anyone who has made a successful switch from corporate to education, or is planning to do so? I'm more inclined to 1 year programs. Any leads will be appreciated!

    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.

    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!
  15. 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!
  16. 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?
  17. 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.
  18. 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??
  19. 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?!
  20. 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!
  22. 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
  25. 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.
