Hello! I've received offers from NYU and Boston University, both programs are master in Piblic Relations. Meanwhile I am waiting for the IMC program of Northwestern U. As a graduate student majoring in foreign languages and without PR related working experience, I intent to gain some professional experience while studying. Personally I don't think Northwestern wants me because they usually require experience; and I am not confident enough to choose its IMC program because a lot of courses are about finance and statistics. Boston U is good, but when talking about internships and job opportunities as well as related industries in the city, isn't NYC a better place? I guess BU is more academic. As for NYU, I really want to go there but I worry a little about the name of the school to which the program belongs. School of continuing and professional studies... Will it cause some misunderstanding? Another concern is the quality of the program. Some say it is highly practice-based, which is exactly what I want; but others say that it accepts too many students so it becomes less valuable. Could you guys share share some experience and give me some advice? Thanks a lot!
Hi all, I just received my admission from Northwestern IMC and am facing difficulties deciding on which program to choose. As UT Austin is a newer program, there doesn't seem to be many posts on the program so I was wondering if anyone could provide any insights that can help me toward deciding! I have accepted my admission at UT Austin and paid a deposit of 2000$, and even finished my career services interview. I thought I didn't have a chance to get into Northwestern, but it turns out I got admitted the last day of being on the waitlist! It's very hard of a decision as the tuition at Northwestern is 84K, and 42K for UT Austin. Northwestern- prestigious program, lots of alumni, focuses more on tech and ecommerce UT Austin- new program (started in 2016), not as many alumni in the field as compared to Northwestern, but there's lots of alumni for McCombs (so could still be of great help when looking for jobs), focuses more on quant and analysis of data in targeting consumers. I was wondering if anyone could provide any insights to the two programs, your opinions are of great help, thank you all so much!
