  1. 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:
  2. 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.

  4. Did anyone else apply to their Ph.D. (or Masters!) programs? I was invited to the "finalist weekend" yesterday and am really excited.
  5. 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...
  6. 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?
  7. 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?
  8. 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!
  9. 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!
  10. Hey guys! I was wondering if anyone has heard back yet for an interview from the MA Child Study and Education program?
  11. UC Irvine PhD Education

    Hello, everyone! Anyone waiting for UCI's emails for interviews on PhD Education? Hope I at least receive an email about anything in January...
  12. 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.
  13. 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?
  14. Genuine question on a potentially controversial topic: Does anyone have any insight into current graduate programs (of particular concern, education graduate programs) and their usage of affirmative action? I understand the Supreme Court ban, the current ban in 8 states, but also the "under the table" continued use of affirmative action for "diversity". I am a male and underrepresented minority race. Is there some preference for this demographic in education graduate programs? My searches haven't found any recent forum posts on this, only years old ones that did mention certain former admissions workers who stated how they came across female applications which were "maybe's" but would have been an absolute "yes" if the applicant were male. I apologize if this question touches some nerves. I know this is a controversial topic; am genuinely curious. Thank you.
  15. Admission Questions

    Hello all! I am hoping someone more experienced can give me some insight. I have applied to the Masters of Teaching program at Kansas State University. The admission process for it seemed like it would be pretty quick, but since it had been several weeks I checked in with the director of the program. His response was: We have reviewed and recommended but are waiting for the Graduate School to process. . .Should be soon. Would this mean that I have been recommended for admission into the program? Thanks!
  16. Hello Grad Cafe Forum! I have yet to see a USF forum and thought I would start one. I am applying for the Ed.D in International and Multicultural Education program with a concentration in Human Rights Education. Does anybody know what their acceptance rates are like? I guess I am just really nervous about the GRE since I haven't taken it yet.. Thanks in advance!!
  17. I'm a current Senior at a small liberal arts school and I want to earn my Master's in Secondary English Education in NY. The problem is that every program I look at includes a looong list of prerequisite "General Educational Core" courses in which I'm supposed to have credits before I apply. Here's an example from Hofstra:Artistic Expression/Humanities (3 s.h.)Communication (3 s.h.)Information Retrieval or placement exam (0-3 s.h.)Concepts in History/Social Science (3 s.h.)Language other than English (3 s.h.)Scientific Processes (3 s.h.)Mathematical Processes (3 s.h.)Literature, Analysis and Written Expression (6 s.h.)The problem is that my college doesn't have core requirements and so I don't have any credits in over half of these areas! All the other NY schools I've looked at, including CUNY and SUNY, have similar lists. I have a 4.0 and can get excellent recommendations, but will I have any chance if I don't meet these prerequisites? I was already planning to take a gap year and, if need be, take community college courses to make up the credits I need, but looking at this list I'm not even sure if I can take all of these courses in a year! Any guidance would be much appreciated.

  22. Where to Research

    I want to conduct research on the psychological effects new technologies like smartphones and social media has on our creativity, education, social interactions, etc. Is there a program in which I can study the effects of new technology, since the psychological research on this topic seems so scant.
  23. Hi all, I was wondering if anyone here has applied/been accepted to a PhD in international education policy without a master's degree?

  24. SUNY New Paltz

    So for the MAT social studies program at SUNY New Paltz the application deadline was may 15. I submitted mine may 12. I'm wondering if anyone in this program or the grad school in general has any idea how long it takes to hear back from them? Whether it be the alert that they've processed your app or results. Any insight would help lol I'm mildly freaking this is my top choice. It hasn't even been a week and I'm obsessively checking my email all day.
  25. CSULB SCHOOL COUNSELING FALL 2017
