Hi everyone! Just throwing some thoughts out into the void, seeing if anyone else is waiting on Penn GSE Higher Education master's decisions. I'm a little confused if we should expect to wait 4-6 weeks after the priority deadline (February 15) or not. It seems like last year some people heard back starting the last week of February, a year to the day (gulp!) Anyone have thoughts?
So I've got a really tough dilemma. I was awarded an inaugural fellowship at NC State for their Higher Education Administration program, but I was also accepted at UNC-CH for their English program with full funding (the financial package, really, isn't that much lower than NC State's fellowship). My heart has always been in literature, but Higher Ed is a new and exciting field for me, and I can't help but consider that with the Higher Ed program, I'd have more job opportunities (I could go into research, administration, or teaching), whereas with English--as we're all painfully aware (and yes, I did read the thread that was devoted to that topic in the last week)--the job opportunities are less. Any advice/insight/suggestions?
Based on your experience, or what you have heard from colleagues please share your input on my chances of getting into Teachers College, Columbia University with a 3.1 GPA. My GPA decreased tremendously during my last year of college due to a death in my family. Nevertheless, I have a pretty good resume because I have worked throughout college in areas of student development, and I was pretty involved on campus. I also currently work full-time. I was was wondering if anyone with a 3.3 or less GPA have been admitted to Columbia. If so, can you share a few pointers? Thanks!
