I'm in the process of interviewing for different masters/specialist programs in Massachusetts and Connecticut. I have interviews at William James, Umass Amherst, Southern CT State University, Tufts, and Northeastern. Im still waiting to hear from UConn and UMass Boston. Each program has a different degree they offer (M.A., M.S., and M.Ed) along with different specialist credentials (CAGS, Ed.S and 6th year certificate). I know that for the most part the specialist credentials are the same but vary in name depending on the state, but I'm wondering if the difference in the masters degree is significant and if it effects a students career as a school psychologist. Also, if anyone has been to any of these schools and would like to comment on how they felt about the programs it would be much appreciated! Currently my top choices are Umass Amherst and Northeastern. Some questions I have about the programs are: Is the program more research focused or practical focused? Cohort size? How supportive and available is the faculty towards the students? How heavy was the workload? Do you feel the program prepared you to be a competent school psychologist? Would you recommend the program? And any other comments you'd like to make! Thank you!
jennyshaw228 posted a topic in Decisions, DecisionsHi, everyone! I got two offers from MERM program at UBC and MEC program at Alberta. But I am struggling with the decision. FYI, both programs I applied for require the completion of a thesis. UBC is one of the top universities in Canada and Vancouver is a comfortable city to live in. But I do not have any fundings. It is expensive to live in Vancouver. Also, my supervisor told me the chance becoming a RA is low for a master student considering we have many courses and lack of skills. In fact, I plan to pursue a doctorate degree after finishing my graduate study and hope to gain more experience and have some publications if possible. So I am worried about whether the program is helpful for my future application for PhD. Can I have many research opportunities at UBC? Besides, the supervisor's research interests at Alberta are more appealing to me than UBC's. And the supervisor promised me to become his RA and work in his projects. So the funding and research opportunities are guaranteed. But I am not sure whether the program is high of quality. Could some guys answer my questions? I compare both two programs and find course credits are the same. So why could students at Alberta have time working research projects but students at UBC could not? I sincerely hope people who know about these two programs could give me some advice. Thanks a lot!!
Hi All, I was recently accepted to a PhD in Educational Psychology & Methodology program at University at Albany, SUNY. However i was waitlisted for funding. I was searching for info/people with similar experiences and since I couldn't find an EdPsyc specific thread I decided to start one. Would love to hear from others applying to similar programs anywhere and would really like to hear from anyone with experience at UAlbany.

Thanks!!
