  1. I'm about to start my PhD in Clinical Psychology in NYC at Yeshiva University (Ferkauf health emphasis program) in the fall and I'm a little worried about finances. I haven't heard back from the school about funding yet, but I'm under the impression they don't usually provide much of it. Since I'm not eligible for FAFSA, I'm wondering about other available funding opportunities for international students studying in New York (i.e. bursaries, fellowships, scholarships, loans, grants, etc.). I've looked into a few scholarships, but most of the deadlines have already passed. I will apply to these in the upcoming years, but I would love to hear about what other students in my position have done to fund their studies. It would be particularly AMAZING if anyone from the Ferkauf health emphasis program could provide me with some insight about funding opportunities for international students in that program. Any advice would be greatly appreciated-- thanks in advance

  3. Hey guys, I am super stressed out about applying for Speech Language Pathology. Little background: I live in New York, graduated with BA in psychology in 2014, and working at a non-profit with children under 3 as a home-visitor for two years. I am taking pre-requisites classes and at the same time I have currently been studying for GRE with Magoosh about one month and there is no improvement on my verbal section. My practice exam score: verbal143, quantitative153, and writing probably around 3.0. My undergrad GPA was 3.54. It's so frustrating since I studied every day for more than 2 hours every single day. I don't know what I have done wrong. My math has increased but not verbal, I think it's mainly because English is not my first language. After reading many posts, I feel that my change of getting a program is nearly diminished. I don't have outstanding scores, not as closely related work experiences, nor I would do well on interviews since I get anxiety attack for it.
  4. Hey guys! So I am graduating from my undergraduate in a couple of months and am starting to apply to schools for a MSW. My major in undergrad is marketing but I have taken more liberal arts courses for electives than anything else. I've always known that I wanted to help people, I just didn't necessarily know how I wanted to until I took multiple psychology courses. Now, I don't have much social work experience other than some psychology, sociology, philosophy, and government classes. I also have only had an internship with Veterans Affairs and I am still a year-round intern for medical social work (started as paid but went to volunteer after a certain date). I have been active in the past (high school) in Best Buddies and have mentored freshmen as a senior in high school. I don't have much volunteer experience throughout my college years. I have transferred two times -- I started at one school, I was pretty much bullied out of it, and went to just any school to get away. From that new school, I transferred again to the school I am graduating from. The first 2 schools I didn't have amazing GPA's... first was a 3.2-3.3 and the second was a 2.5. I am going into my final term with a 3.72 GPA with a major GPA of a 3.8. Do I have a chance of getting into an MSW program? I am looking to go to either New York University, Columbia University, or Hunter College. EDIT: I would like to add that my ultimate career goal is to work at the VA Hospital as an LICSW while also having my own clinical practice (my business degree wouldn't go to waste).
  5. Hi all new and excited to be here I recently applied to several social work grad schools, a very nerve-wracking and exciting process. I successfully got an interview invitation with the director of the Infant & Family Development and Early Intervention Program at Bank Street. I was wondering if any Redditors here may share some tips and tricks to get into this program? Would love to hear social work (children focused) career insight and other general grad school application tips as well, thanks!
  6. I haven't seen a Columbia University 2016 thread yet so thought I'd start one! I'll be starting in the fall as a MPH student in the Mailman School of Public Health. I studied anthropology as an undergrad and am really interested in architecture and planning, so even though I'll be on the medical campus most of my time, I hope to come down to the main campus regularly to study and for lectures and events. Super excited to move to NYC this summer!
  7. Hello! I went back a few pages and did not find a thread for TC. I am attending the Social Organizational Psychology MA program this Fall! Will be moving from Philly- a bit nervous about the move despite the short distance. But I am SO EXCITED! Nice to meet you all! Also, is anyone looking for a roommate? I have been combing craigslist and rental sites but have not been able to find anything under $800. Applied for grad housing but it isn't guaranteed. If you have any other methods for apartment hunting in the Columbia area, I would love to know!
  8. I got accepted into their MA program for International Affairs. Definitely excited about it, however still waiting on other schools. Has anyone else applied? or got accepted and decided to go there?
  9. So I was looking at the CUNY Masters in Psychology programs because of their affordability. I've discovered Hunter, Queens College, and Brooklyn College so far. To me hunter seems to be the most "neurosciencey-based' and research oriented out of the three. Does anybody have experience applying to any of these programs, know details about the programs, know where students work post-graduation (if they don't go on to PhD programs)? By the time I apply I'll have 2 years in a neuroscience lab studying Event Related Potentials, 3.4 overall GPA, 3.7 psych GPA, Psych degree Bio minor. Anybody else have a similar background?
  10. Hey! I am a Brooklyn resident thinking about getting a Library Science degree. I've worked in various libraries for about 3 years now and while I think I eventually want to go back to school for a PhD, in the short term I'd like to continue working in libraries, and I'd have more opportunities with an ML(I)S (hopefully). I don't want to go into debt for this, and I don't want to leave New York City. I had some good conversations with people at Queens College CUNY and St. John's University- both ALA accredited programs- and with my undergrad GPA and in-state status, I would be able to afford the degree, and continue to work while I went to school. But these aren't exactly prestigious schools, and I'm wondering if that will make a difference? I've heard that job experience trumps where you got your MLS degree- and I have experience working for several major public institutions. Any thoughts on either school or on my plan in general? Thanks!!!
