  1. Hi! So I got offered assistantship interviews at University of Connecticut Higher Education M.A. program and University of Maryland Higher Education M.A. program. They are both great schools and I would like to interview for both BUT the interviews fall on the SAME exact days. Can anyone give me insight about these schools OR give me advise on how I can draft an email saying I am interested but the dates conflict. Any help is appreciated thank you!!
  2. 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 f
  3. Hi everyone! I'm waiting in USC's Masters of Education program. The deadline for notifications isn't until Feb 1, but I'm extremely nervous! Anyone else in the same boat?
  4. Hi everyone. I'm curious if anyone has feedback on joint MA in higher education and MBA programs. I'm interested in working in higher education administration one day, and it seems like the management and leadership courses in an MBA could be a strong compliment to a higher education masters. In addition (and I know some may disagree), I think the MBA could be a unique and marketable degree. About me: I currently work in education policy, and I'm considering one day working at the campus-level in administration. I'm more interested in the administration side (strategic planning, work with
  5. I've recently decided that I want to have a career in higher education. (Academic advisor would be my dream job.) Right now I'm in between my sophomore and junior year of college, and I don't have a lot of experience. This past year I tutored math to small groups through my school's tutor program, and I was an administrative assistant for about 6 weeks for the school's TRIO tutoring program (started after spring break). I didn't have any student contact or anything for that one - just working on organizing information about the program so a report could be made about the effectiveness of the p
  6. Has anyone taken this route? I'm currently applying to a Masters of Public Administration program and work in communications at a state university. I really like university environment and think I might want to stay in higher education. My university does offer a master's in student affairs, but I'm more interested in academic affairs than I am in student services (res life, Greek life, registrar, etc.). My program doesn't have a concentration in higher ed but I could try to tailor it somewhat with electives. Any ideas?
  7. Any feedback will be greatly appreciated! Bachelors: Psychology Masters of Science: Human Cognitive Neuropsychology Undergrad overall GPA (I had one horrible semester): 3.465 Undergrad Psychology GPA: 3.8 I am a horrible test taker: -GRE Verbal: 149; 42% -GRE Quant: 146; 24% -GRE Writing: 4.5; 82% Research experience: 3 years (Research technician in EEG , fMRI and clinical lab); 3 years (Project coordinator at upper limb prosthesis research lab) Clinical experience: 3 years (Clinical lab working with patients with
  8. Hello, all! I'm a first gen college grad (graduated several years ago) who is looking for advice on applying to Ph.D. programs. I'll try to ask specific questions, but I want to give you some background info first. [FWIW, this isn't a "what are my chances" post. Not that there's anything wrong with that. ] Undergrad: State School, B.A. History, summa cum laude Activities included research assistantship, TA position, club president, study abroad, thesis Grad School: Large private, terminal degree, 3.6 GPA Activities: TA positions, grad assistant, no thesis GRE (super old
  9. Hi everyone! So I am currently a junior in college and I will be applying to student affairs programs next fall in hopes of starting Fall 2018. I currently work in advising as an undergrad which is how I got interested in going into this field. I have been using NASPA's directory but I want real people's opinions! I am looking for a program that is student affairs focused (not research/policy) and that is really focused on practicums/experience. I am also looking for a program that offers guaranteed assistantships with tuition reimbursement or if its not guaranteed has a lot of options
  10. I got an offer from both, with a scholarship, in computational science (biology, specifically). I know that UCT has a slighly higher ranking and Cape Town is the city of my dreams, but I am just curious about the experiences of those who attend/previously attended either of these universities, so I can make an informed decision.
  11. Hi, I'm currently looking at the University of San Francisco to get my masters in Higher Education. My advisor said it would be a good idea to try Americorps, I had mentioned it before. She said that Americorps would give me a break from school, and also develop skills that other Grads wouldn't have yet. Advice?
  12. Hi, I am currently finishing my junior year as a Business Major. I want to go into Higher Education, but I only have a 2.87 GPA. I know I can begin to boost my GPA a little over the upcoming summer and the next 2 semesters, but I also don't want to have a heavy load. I am apart of my college's Entertainment Club as the Vice President & President my Senior year. I am also very engaged with my Student Government as the treasurer this year and hopefully President next year, if not VP (still waiting on President results). I have spoken to my advisors about what to do next, and one s
  13. Hi, everyone! I've been scrolling through posts on this site and finally decided to give in and create an account! I'm currently a junior in my undergrad but need to start preparing for the application process to graduate school. Through ample internships, I've fallen in love with higher education administration. I have two primary questions that I cannot seem to find answers to elsewhere: 1. What is the likelihood that one may be accepted into an Ed.D. program straight from undergrad? All of the research I've done thus far indicate they require a master's degree. 2. I've b
  14. Hello all! I've been a longtime lurker on this forum and I was hoping that I could get some input on the decision that I have to make regarding grad school. I was recently accepted to the Stanford Ph.D. program in Higher Education (full funding and fellowships) as well as a Master's program in Higher Education from the University of Michigan (in-state tuition). On paper, it seems like a no-brainer because Stanford is a better program with better funding. I'm torn though because I'm an Ann Arbor native and my whole family has attended Michigan. I went to an Ivy for undergrad, but I always
  15. Hi all, As the excitement of admissions decisions are waning away, I am trying to grasp the reality of paying for my master's degree. I got into my number one choice for higher education - University of Michigan - but now I am trying to figure out how I am going to pay for a program that doesn't offer assistantships. Any advice moving forward? I've filed my FAFSA, and will have an internship during the two-years I am getting my degree, and I may receive some funding from U of M (but not guaranteed). I would really like to look into scholarships, but I am not sure where to begin. Unfo
  16. Hi there I applied to higher education/student affairs/college student development programs for Fall 2012 and was hoping for some advice/anecdotal information on the programs I applied to. So far, I weigh in as follows: Accepted: Loyola University Chicago, Northwestern University Waitlisted: Iowa State University Rejected: University of Connecticut Waiting: Columbia University, DePaul University I want a program that focuses on research, since I want to eventually get my doctorate in Media Studies and Women's Studies. I really like the field of student affairs in general, and I'm hoping
  17. I am a prospective candidate for Graduate School of Education. While selecting universities, I found a conspicuous discrimination made my most of the international applicants: Private Univ vs Public Univ Looking for reputation, prospects and other merits of a graduate program, I found private universities far better than public universities, with few exceptions. What's your opinion? Is ''state funding'' or ''affordability'' the only unique characteristic of a public university graduate program? Do education programs differ significantly between public and private universities? If s
