  1. Hi all, I've been accepted to the MSc in Global Affairs at the SPS in NYU. Super excited and happy when I got the offer. I love NY and living there has been a dream of mine so I'm very inclined to accept the offer. My goal is also to work in policy analysis and/or counter-terrorism/violent extremism in a think tank, NGO, international organization etc. But my concerns are: 1) the cost: I'll have to take a loan of $80k-100k to cover tuition, living expenses + everything. BIG deal. 2) I'd want to stay in the US to work. What would my chances be to find work in NY or anywhere in the US as a Canadian citizen with a Master's from NYU? I've spoken to 2 alumni's from the program who went from Canada and one is working in NY and the other in Washington. Any advice would be appreciated
  2. Anyone who attends programs such as Hofstra, LIU Post, New York Medical College, LIU Brooklyn, etc. give some insight on their program? Likes/dislikes? I tried to find some info but haven't really seen much.
  3. Hi All! I'm pretty torn between grad schools right now and was hoping that some of you could possibly provide me with your opinions. I've been accepted to Columbia University, Northeastern University, Boston University and waitlisted to MGH. I am leaning towards medical speech pathology, so a big factor in my decision are the surrounding hospitals. I am originally from NY so I think right now the major issue is deciding what city I want to pursue my Masters in. I've always loved Boston but I'm not sure if starting this chapter in an unfamiliar setting is the best choice. If there are any graduate students who are in these programs or simply if you have any insight I would greatly appreciate it! Thank you!!
  4. Hi everyone! I just received my acceptance in to Molloy College! I wanted to see if anyone has experience with the school/program and has any insight? I would appreciate any feedback!!
  5. I am currently an undergraduate at SUNY New Paltz and applied to numerous schools. I have only heard back from a little more than half. I got into the program here at New Paltz, along with Mercy College, Hofstra University, and the University of Buffalo, and am waiting to hear back from the College of Saint Rose, CUNY Queens, Lehman, Hunter, and Brooklyn, which I have an interview for in a week. After taking into consideration price, I think I may turn down Hofstra and Mercy and so far try to decide between the University of Buffalo and New Paltz. I won't do so until I am sure, but still have much to take into consideration. For anyone who knows anything about these schools, their speech language pathology programs, their communities, or any other pros/cons, I'd be more than happy to hear and take any recommendations or advice. Also, when deciding between programs, should the number of semesters (weather 4-6) be taken into consideration? I'm not sure how much of an effect choosing a school with a longer program will have on my overall experience in grad school. I was also wondering if the programs rankings are based primarily off of research, or their program as a whole in regards to its reputation and if this should at all be considered in deciding between one or another? (for example, the program at New Paltz is ranked #188 and Buffalo's is #30) Any help or advice from anyone at these schools with experience or anyone with an idea of these programs would be greatly appreciated! Thank you.
  6. I'm lucky enough to have to make a choice between both programs (BU vs. Mt. Sinai Icahn School of Medicine for Neuroscience). I would appreciate any help in making this decision. Both programs have great advisors I could work with, the money is about the same, and both are amazing cities (for different reasons). I'm having a lot of trouble deciding. If anyone can offer any advice, anecdotes, or opinions, it would be greatly appreciated. Which school is better for neuroscience? Which school have you heard has a better graduate environment? I'll just choose whatever y'all tell me.
  7. Hi all, I'm planning on applying to social work programs in a few months (NYU, Columbia, Fordham, Hunter, etc.) and my biggest concern is my statistics course grade. I am still taking the course and I already know I will not do too well. I am currently a sociology major so I am taking a sociology based statistics course. My overall GPA is a 3.49 and I am hoping it will go up after this semester to a 3.5-3.6 since I am doing very well in my other courses. I just want to know if statistics will hinder my acceptance? I have lots of experience working in preschools with special needs children, internships and a law firm where I worked with social workers, great letters of recommendations lined up and I am currently working on my personal statement. Thanks!!
  8. Hey guys, I have applied to Baruch, NYU Wagner and Northeastern Uni for an MPA (FALL 2019). Previously, I did apply to NYU for an MA in Global Affairs - specializing in International Law (which I got accepted) and St. John's Uni for an MA in Sociology (also accepted). However, I decided to reject both and reapply for an MPA for various reasons. I run an intl humanitarian org (started in 2016) and already manage 1.5 million budget and large team, won a couple of awards from local US officials and intl orgs, I worked in higher ed, and also law office as paralegal. I also spoke at UN sessions in NY and Switzerland on conflicts. Sat along with US officials on panels, etc. My BA was in Sociology, but with so much going on at the time, my GPA was overall a 3.2 but my major GPA was a 3.7. My recommendation letters are from top executives at a college, college adviser and also a colleague who is currently an editor for a program at Harvard. My last minute change did not allow me to take the GRE and I know that for Northeastern Uni they don't ask for it and Baruch, you can opt out with a 3.0+ but NYU WAgner was strongly recommended + a video essay which was done professionally (i submitted). What are the odds of getting in? Once the MPA is done, I am studying for the GRE so I can enter a PhD program in International Relations or Public Policy. Also the price tag for NYU Wagner is huge. IS it worth it if an applicant already has good connections to think-tanks, orgs, UN, etc? I am eventually planning to apply to PhD programs at NYU, Princeton, Columbia, Northwestern, etc.
  9. Will $40,000 be enough for cost of living for fall 2019, spring 2020, summer 2020, and fall 2020? That's how much I should have saved up before I start at Columbia! I'm a pretty low maintenance gal and would prefer to only take out loans for tuition.
  10. Hello! I am planning on attending school in New Jersey because of in-state tuition, but my dream is to live and work in NYC. I know that New York and New Jersey have different requirements for licensure. I wanted to know if it's possible to get my graduate degree in one state and then do my Clinical Fellowship Year in another state. If I'm not able to do my Clinical Fellowship Year in another state, how hard is it to get licensure in another state, specifically New York? I haven't been able to find much information online. If anyone has any information on this, it would be greatly appreciated!
  11. Hi! So I recently gained admission to both SIPA (Columbia) and IHEID (graduate institute) for their Masters in International Affairs in Fall 2018. Neither college has given financial aid. So while financials are certainly an issue, they won't dictate where I go to study. I'm hoping that someone who either knows people in both programmes or who has experience with these courses in some way, can share some insights which can help me decide. I'm definitely looking at this from an employability perspective, and am looking to do well in the course. Thanks!
  12. Hi! I am in MAJOR need of advice! Here's the sitch: I live in California. I work for an educational non-profit that I LOVE and care for deeply. I was given an unofficial job offer last week to take over our region as a Regional Manager (making a salary, full-time hours, management experience) for minimum of a one year commitment. DAYS later, I receive awesome news! I have been accepted into the Masters of Arts for Psychology with a focus in Cognition and Neuroscience at NYU!!! NEW YORK OMG! I have dreamt of New York for nearly ten years now and even applied to NYU for my BA out of high school (which I got rejected to). This has been my dream of dreams and it is REAL now. However, I would be a transplant student moving miles and miles away, not knowing anyone, with not nearly enough saved up to steadily live. I am not afraid to work hard to get to where I want, because I've already worked hard to get to where I am. I am really battling with myself if I should attempt to defer my admission for a year and possibly take the unofficial job offer (it's not promised yet) or risk it for my dream of studying what I want where I've always wanted. WHAT DO YOU THINK?!
  13. I'm a prospective applicant to the PhD program in Political Science at NYU. My focus is in the IPE arena, and I'm interested in working with Shanker Satyanath, Peter Rosendorff, or Eric Dickson. I'd like to hear from a current student or recent graduate of the program about funding opportunities (they seem generous), RA, TA, and fellowship opportunities within the program, student engagement with faculty, and perceptions of faculty overall. Is the general feeling that PhD students are well supported throughout their time at NYU? Side-comments about living in Manhattan (or maybe Brooklyn, more realistically?) are also appreciated.
  14. Hi all! Does anyone know whether we need to have achieved a minimum grade in the ASHA core courses (biological science, physical science, behavioral science and statistics)? In particular, I'm applying to NYU, New York Medical College (NYMC) and TC Columbia. Does anyone know if these schools have a cutoff grade for those ASHA courses? Thanks in advance!
  15. I got an accept at Alfred for Fall 2012. Could anybody help me out with where to live off campus (in an apt or so). Also Iv heard its a small town so what all do i have to look out for while moving in?
  16. Greetings *waves* I'm new to the forum and just wanted to introduce myself, and maybe get some feedback about my graduate school pursuits. I am currently enrolled in a public health certificate program, completing the core competencies and would like to transfer these credits into an MPH program. My main concern is the employment outlook, both for supporting myself through grad school, and after completing the degree. So before pursuing public health, I got a B.S. in Psychology and a minor in Biology. I was always interested in neuroscience but iffy about the kind of career it would entail (i.e. getting a PhD and taking more biology and chemistry classes when I didn't like half the ones I'd already taken; and biology courses keeping by GPA down). I am from NYC (Queens) and the job market is supersaturated and ultra-competitive. Maybe that goes without saying, but being in the eye of the storm I don't know what it looks like from the outside so maybe that isn't common knowledge. Dramatic relocation is on my agenda. It's been fairly evident that my economic worth here is virtually 0. Bit of a catch-22: I was raised here and want to get out, but need the financial means to do so, which seem to lie elsewhere... After graduating, I looked for research assistant jobs (or something similar in the realm of health/medicine) for upwards of a year. Since graduating the only actual job (as in $$) I've had was at the end of 2015, when I worked on two research projects on a temp assignment. Since spring of 2014, I've interned as an online consultant for a company that specializes in health IT. At the advice of others last summer to find something that will give me credentials beyond a Bachelors, in fitting that to my own career goals I decided an MPH might be a good option. I've always been curious about bioinformatics and enjoyed my stats classes (and I'm not math-phobic). Leaning biostats or epidemiology, and also something mental health-related would be cool. I should mention I have other internships now as well that are more public health-relevant, but still leave me part-time availability (in the event I ever find employment before starting an MPH program..) I will be completing the certificate program this spring, basically it's all the core/general competency coursework for an MPH (part-time@15 credits). For fall of next year, I'm looking at the Colorado School of Public Health. It is my first choice given that I fell in love with Colorado when I went there before, and the job market both in general and for PH, health, and biotech fields in particular seem promising. Supposedly it is not at all saturated either (or so I just read on another forum, though I think that was said 2-3 years ago). Other programs I'm considering are Rutgers, Drexel, SUNY Buffalo, U. Pittsburgh, and U. Michigan. Don't know if that's too many schools to apply to (I know for PhD programs, that's not a large number of prospects). My primary concern aside from getting into CSPH is being able to find work there to support myself. I know housing is getting pricey there, probably not on par with NYC but still. Is it reasonable to expect I will be able to find work more easily there compared to where I am now? Or am I completely screwed if I don't find anything before next fall? As far as academic stats: Undergrad GPA 3.27 (higher in later semesters, mostly Biology classes kept it down as I got a few C's) Grad courses completed so far: 2 A's; Enrolled this semester: biostats and epidemiology core Undergrad mathy/sciencey courses: 1 year of calculus, 1 year of statistics within the psychology dept, 1 semester being upper division, 1 year of chemistry (yes, my school required this amt of "hard science" for a Psych BS), and the biology minor. i.e. minimum requirements met for many MPH-biostats programs. If I have to go back and take linear alegbra, retake calculus so it's more recent, or whatever else before actually starting the Master's, at this point I don't think it's worth it. I mean I do have to eat and pay rent.. 2 professional conference presentations and 3 publication co-authorships w/ the company mentioned above GRE: N/A, will be taking in a few months most likely
  17. Hey everyone! I just had a question about graduate assistantships or fellowships offered at NYU or Columbia. At my current university I know a few graduate students who are MSW but they are doing assistantships with Higher Education. Does anyone have any insight about the process of locating such opportunities? I tried navigating the NYU and Columbia websites, but I couldn't seem to find any information. Thank you all so much!
  18. Hello! I have been actively searching for different phd programs in clinical psychology. However, I am torn between if I think I'll make it into a phd program or should I go into a masters program. I have a 3.15 GPA (low, went through situations my first year and a half of college). All my psych classes and basically last 60 credits were all great though. I haven't took the GRE yet, I have 2 years experience as a research assistant at a big hospital in the developmental psychology side of things. I have great recommendations that will be written. I really love City Colleges program but I am afraid that my GPA is too low, will me doing outstanding on my GRE give me a chance?
  19. Hi, everyone!! I'm currently in the process of applying to graduate programs in the tri-state area for speech-language pathology. My GPA is a 3.8 and I am taking the GRE on Monday, but on a practice test, I scored embarrassingly low. I got a 145 on the verbal and a 140 on quant. I really have not had time to study between school and work, so I wanted to know how heavily weighted the GRE is. I am heavily involved on campus. Just to list some of my involvement: school newspaper editor, commuter student mentor, professor's assistant, member of a club for children with autism, national student speech-language-hearing association, sorority member, member of several academic honors societies, and I just got involved in one of my professor's research. I've also completed my 25 hours of observation with a licensed SLP and I have had one internship with a healthcare company. Basically, I want to know what you think my chances are of admittance. I really want to be a speech-language pathologist and I will be extremely heartbroken if I'm not accepted. I plan on applying to: Kean University Emerson College NYU (that's a total reach) Monmouth University Hunter College Seton Hall **I wanted to know if there are any schools that don't really look at the GRE. Please make suggestions! I would really appreciate feedback. Thank you!!
  20. Hi folks, I've been accepted to the following programs: MS in Data Science from NYU MA in Quantitative Methods in the Social Sciences at Columbia (want to pursue the data science concentration) MS in Computational Analytics and Public Policy at University of Chicago Master of Information Systems Management with a concentration in Business Intelligence and Data Analytics at Carnegie Mellon So exciting to have so many options! I think I've probably narrowed it down to Columbia and NYU, because those programs are most narrowly focused on the data analysis stuff I find most interesting, but feel free to persuade me otherwise! I worked at a marketing consulting firm in the analytics department for two years, and then I worked at GlobalGiving, a nonprofit crowdfunding platform for a year and a half. For undergrad, I studied Economics and Professional Writing at Carnegie Mellon University. I've taken some programming here and there, but doing business intelligence work using SQL and Excel has been by bread and butter, so any of these programs would stretch my technical skills. I'm not completely sure what I want to do when I graduate, but broadly speaking, I want to be a data scientist in the social impact space. I could see myself as a data scientist at a crowdfunding site and/or a number cruncher at an international institution like the UN (Global Pulse) or the World Bank. Which of these programs would get me where I want to go? If you can't compare, what could you say about any of these programs? I'm curious about the reputation and name recognition of each. If you graduated from any of these programs, how did you like your experience? For NYU and Columbia especially, these span multiple departments and are really flexible so I'm curious if it's hard to feel like you're part of a community, because everyone is so dispersed. These are also fairly short - Columbia's QMSS is only 10 classes and NYU's MS in Data Science is only 12 classes. Did you feel like the program stands alone and did you have enough time and classes to learn what you needed? Thanks for your thoughts!
  21. 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).
  22. Hey everyone! I've been scrolling through various forums on here for a couple weeks now, but this is my first post! I graduated a year ago from Northern Arizona University with my BSW and a minor in sociology. Attending grad school has been on my mind a lot over the past few months and I've finally decided to pursue an MSW in New York City through an advanced standing program in Fall 2018. I intend to apply to Columbia, NYU, Fordham, and Hunter with Columbia being with current top choice. I'm flying to New York in August to attend prospective student events and see the various campuses. Needless to say, I'm staring to get very excited about the idea of starting my masters in NYC. So here is my question: does applying right when the application opens versus right before the priority deadline make much of a difference in terms of wait time for a decision? I've read lots of different forums on here about people applying at different times and it seems that most decisions come back in February or March. I presume that most applications open in the Fall (I got an email saying Columbia's opens in August) and I'm getting eager to get to work on my applications. I welcome any feedback about this question and the application process for these schools in general. Thanks!
  23. Hi everyone! If you have decided to attend Columbia University's Mailman School of Public Health in Fall 2017 (like me) then feel free to join the Facebook group I just created so we can connect with each other, ask questions, etc. https://www.facebook.com/groups/1527643387247818/ This group is intended to promote connectivity between students admitted to a Master of Public Health, Master of Science, or Master of Healthcare Administration degree programs at Columbia University's Mailman School of Public Health beginning in September 2017.
  24. Hello everyone, I'm an international student from South Korea and I'm applying to both Sotheby's institute and Christie's for Master's degree in New York. I don't have a normal educational background, and to explain this briefly, I did 2 year neuroscience of undergraduate in a top 30 university in US, and then I quit, because of my personal and family problems at that point of my life. I worked in the korean enterprise for 2 years, in field which was not related to neither in neuroscience nor art. Then I went back to my undergraduate education, this time not Neuroscience in the USA, but degree in Art History and Archeology in Université Paris Sorbonne, in Paris, France. Since the Master's program in Sorbonne is extremely academic and doesn't prepare me at all for the "real world", I really want to get my Master's in Sotheby's or Christie's in New York. I've done many research between Sotheby's and Christie's , and my questions is the followings: 1. size of entering class 2. 3 semesters equals how many weeks ? I can't find the calendar exact which explains the exact duration of programs. 3. accumulated number of alumni since the beginning 4. number of international students I know that both institution have great program, and I don't see a great difference in the level of reputation of both Sotheby's and Christie's. Only factors that I will be based on for my decision will be those 4 elements mentioned above. I'm really happy that I've found something that I'm genuinely interested in and have passion for, after all these years of struggling with family problems and my academia in the states and Paris. Thank's advance for any thoughts/criticism/ advice/comments..etc !
  25. Hi everyone, so I'm in a bit of a predicament. Like many applicants, I'm applying with my boyfriend who has been interviewing all over the place for MD/PhD. We applied to many of the same places but due to the competitive nature of both programs we have little overlap. Right now he has two acceptances, Mount Sinai and WashU, and he's leaning towards Mount Sinai in NYC. Me on the other hand, I have acceptances from Pitt (he was rejected) and UVA (he's waitlisted) and recently interviewed at Johns Hopkins, UM Baltimore, and Emory. So it's likely that I'm going to a Baltimore school. If worse comes to worst, we'll do long distance between NYC and Baltimore, but that sounds like a huge pain to deal with for 5-6 years of grad school. So here's my question: Is it unreasonable to withdraw all my applications and apply to more NYC schools next cycle? Right now I'm a post-bacc at the FDA in Maryland so theoretically I could continue there for another year. I'm hesitant though because I spent so much time and money on this application cycle, and an offer from JHU is really hard to pass up. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
