  1. First, I am an international student who applied to the Graduate School of Education, 2019 Fall. Can you share your funding situation? I have been accepted to Texas Austin, Ohio State, and Connecticut and else, but no funding information at all. It makes me hard to choose a school. In particular, Austin says that they can't guarantee the fund including TA, GRA. Is it unusual for a Ph.D. in education to study with funding? Will it be possible to get an assistantship after enrolling the school?
  2. 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?

    SPED PhD Apps Fall 2019

    Anyone else applying for a PhD in Special Education for Fall 2019? I've submitted 4 applications (Vanderbilt, Harvard, University of Texas at Austin, and University of Minnesota) and might do one more (George Mason) as that app isn't due until Jan 15th. I just heard back from the University of Minnesota, but am still waiting on any sign from the other institutions. Anyone else in the same boat?

    MS in Biology/MBA

    I am a 2nd year graduate student in a masters biology program. My field of research is cardiovascular disease. Specifically, I research the genetic expression and protein secretion profiles of unique adipose tissue depots in patients with coronary artery disease. I do not have any publications at this point in my career. Although, I have been fortunate enough to obtain ~$13,000 in competitive grant funding and fellowships. I am currently working on a mini-review and hope for my thesis research to be published, once completed. Due to a setback in my research, I will be staying in this program for 1 additional year; graduate May 2020. I have already completed all of the required coursework for the degree, just need to finish the thesis research. Although, due to the requirements for some of the grants that I have I must maintain full-time graduate status (9 units). This semester I have enrolled in 2 MBA courses (economics and operations management). I figured because I know nothing about business, and am in a STEM field, these courses would be interesting and prove worthwhile...I am loving it! I am able to use my analytical skills in a whole new way. This has put me in an interesting position between going for the PhD or the MBA. I am seriously considering applying to the MBA program at my university, fall 2019 start, as I am interested in research funding and development. It is a 2 year program. I recently turned 25, I would finish with both masters programs by age 27. If I go for the PhD it would be in biomedical sciences, or something closely related. Preferably studying coronary artery disease and working with humans as the model organism. I am seeking advice. I know 27 is not THAT old and I can definitely still continue on and complete a PhD. I would like to work more so in a management or consultant role rather than as an active scientist.

    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. Hello. I have a phone interview for a masters program I’m applying to (in education) since I’m currently abroad (but not international student). I have a phone interview coming up in a few weeks. In the email, I was told which two people (one professor and the other a faculty member) will be speaking with me, and it was just a confirmation of the date and time for the Skype interview. The person who emailed me didn’t give me the emails of the interviewers (though I guess it’s available online) and just told me if I had any questions to let them know. It seemed kind of generic, except that they addressed it to me. So my first question is: Am I expected to reach out to the two interviewers to show interest in the program or something? Or do I just wait for the interview? I hear so much on this forum about POI stuff. Is that related? (This is just masters though.) Also, the deadline for my program was January 15. They said they wouldn’t even begin looking at applications until then. But I submitted my application almost two weeks early, and shortly after that, they sent me an invitation email to an open-house-and-interview event for that program. (An interview is required for my program.) Other than my name, the email seemed generic. But it had a broken link to an RSVP page, so someone from the admissions office personally wrote to me with more information. And that’s how I signed up for the alternate Skype interview. Do you think this a good sign (since I got an invitation before the application deadline even passed)? Or do you think this is just something sent out to everyone who applied for that program since they require an interview? I heard that PhD applicants usually get rejected if they don’t get an interview. But I’m not sure about whether that also applies to a masters program’s open-house-and-interview event, especially when an interview is required for admission. Any advice/comments would be appreciated. Thanks!
  7. Hey guys! I was wondering if anyone has heard back yet for an interview from the MA Child Study and Education program?
  8. Hello - first time posting! I am planning to apply to the HGSE for its EPM /IEP / TIE program for hopefully class of 2021. I was hoping to see if there were mainly teachers or non-profit applicants to the program? Are there many students with a corporate / private background? I wonder if the school deems my type of students as not having a great fit... I was hoping to have this masters as a stepping stone into the education field (NGOs, universities, etc) For my background, I have been a consultant for Deloitte's Human Capital Consulting, as well as a role in People Operations at Google. I hold a bachelor of commerce at McGill University, and I am also currently pursuing a masters of science in decision analysis (kind of a data science masters) at Minerva Schools. How does the school look at applicants who already holds masters? Thank you so much for your help!
  9. If you get invited to an open house / interview event, is that a good sign? But an interview is required for all applicants to that particular masters program, and the event is listed on their school calendar so that anyone can RSVP to attend. So in that case, would you say that the invitation email is just sent out to everyone who applied for that program and doesn’t really mean anything more?

  11. Hey guys, I was wondering about who has applied to bachelor of education or teaching programs in Ontario! I have some questions: Which schools have you applied to? For what age concentration? What are your teachables? What was your GPA? What relevant experience did you have? I've applied to OISE, UOIT, and York for intermediate/senior. My teachables are biology & social science. I had a ~4.0 GPA in my last 2 years. I worked in a local high school for the past 2 years.
  12. 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?
  13. 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?

    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?
  17. 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
  18. 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?
  19. 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! ?
  20. 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.

  25. 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!
