  1. Does anyone have any info/a review on the Teach NYC Scholarship? Any info regarding personal, or if you know anyone and/or just heard about it in general. I'm having a hard time debating if I should apply to a school because they offer that, or just go with the school that is more expensive--pretty much just don't know if its worth to apply to or not. ANY info helps!!

    NYU — Fall 2019

    Hi everyone! I decided to create this thread for those heading to NYU in the Fall. I'm going to be attending as a French Lit PhD student! I'm looking forward to getting to know everyone!
  3. Has anyone decided that they'll be attending Mercy College in this fall? I will be attending and wondering if anyone could give me some advice on how to go about finding housing nearby. I'm also open to having a roomate. Congrats and best of luck!

    NYC SLP Grad Applicants Fall 2019

    Hey Everyone, I don't think there is a topic like this yet. I'm from New York and only applied to SLP grad programs in the NY are (LIU Post and Brooklyn, Adelphi, Hofstra, Iona, St. Johns, and Molloy). Did everyone send out their applications yet? When anyone hears back from a school or gets an interview let us know!

    Statistics

    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!!
  6. I will be applying to MSW programs soon in NYC. Does anyone know if your undergrad GPA gets factored into your graduate program GPA. For example, do they take your undergrad social work classes and factor it into your new GPA in the program or your overall GPA? Thanks.

    2018 Funding & Decisions

    Hi All, I'm pretty bad at navigating this site so forgive me if this thread already exists for 2018 but I've been looking at a 2015 edition of this thread and it seemed really helpful so I figured I'd start one for this year. I'm currently trying to decide between: Rutgers: Interdisciplinary. 2 years. full ride. possibility of GA positions worth 7k a semester. #20 in US News Rankings (don't know how they do these but...) University of Florida: Arts + Technology. 3 years. full ride. 22k/year teaching fellowship (20 hrs/wk). #82 in US News. USC: New Genres. 2 years. Waiting to hear back on funding. #69 in US News. Florida State University: Interdisciplinary. 3 years. full ride. 8k/year teaching fellowship (10 hrs/wk) #69 in US News. I'm currently pretty stuck between Rutgers and UF. It's hard to ignore Rutger's stature and proximity to NY but it's also hard to ignore 22k/year in Gainesville, Florida (this would feel like a fortune) and the added bonus of a 3 year program with lots of individual attention. Any input on either the specific programs or just best modes of thinking for identifying the right school would be super appreciated. Thanks in advance.
  8. 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.

    CUNY Lehman

    Anyone have info on Lehman? The placements and supervisors? I've applied to Lehman as a backup in case I don't get into Hunter. I must stay in NYC, and though I've been admitted to Fordham and NYU, they are so expensive (even with merit scholarships), that I'm leaning toward staying within public institutions, even if it means Lehman, which ranks low.
  10. Hi everyone! I applied to Touro College for Fall 2018. The application was due at the beginning of February, but I submitted mine in January. I haven't heard anything from the school since I submitted my application. I called the school and they gave me an email to contact, so I emailed this person. She got back to me saying they are reviewing applications and that applicants would be notified by June 1st!!!! This doesn't make any sense to me! Does this mean I'm waitlisted? Is it wrong to contact the school again? Please help, I'm so confused.
  11. Hey guys, I was just waitlisted from TC, Columbia University. Figured I'd start this threat so people can post whether they've been accepted, waitlisted, or rejected. Or if you've been accepted and you're planning to reject your offer? Also, does anyone know how likely it is to get off the waitlist? GOOD LUCK TO EVERYONE!!
  12. 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!

    Credit Unions in NYC?

    Any good recommendations for credit unions in NYC? I'm starting at Columbia in May and would really like to find a credit union with good customer service, helpful staff, decent fees/rates, etc. I'm currently a member of a credit union at Wisconsin, but would like to be able to visit a branch in person when I need to, so I think it's time to switch. If anyone is a member of a credit union they really like, let me know! Thanks for the help!
  14. Hi all - I'm not sure if I'm posting this to the right forum because I've never posted before... I was just accepted to the psych. in education (clinical psych.) MA program at Teacher's college at Columbia U. I have heard mixed reviews on this program and wondered if anyone here could share opinions - especially if you are at Columbia right now! Thanks!
  15. Hello, I was wondering if anyone is in the specialist degree programs for school psychology at Teachers College, Fordham, or St. Johns, or the PsyD program for school-community psychology at Hofstra? Would you be able to give me some information about the programs? Thank you!!
  16. I'm about to start my PhD in Clinical Psychology in NYC at Yeshiva University (Ferkauf health emphasis program) 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 funding. 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

    Study Buddy NYC

    Hi, I recently graduated from undergrad and am currently studying for the MCAT, which I'm planning to take the end of march. I'm looking for a study buddy, but it doesn't have to necessarily be with someone that's studying for the same thing. I live in lower Manhattan and studying with someone close by isn't necessary either, but would be ideal. Let me know if you're interested! Maria
  18. Hi Everyone, So I haven't been officially accepted yet but I have recently completed a group interview at Silberman School of Social Work for their Two Year MSW program and I think it went very well. I am excited because I really wanted to get into this school due to its low tuition cost and because I feel the program is right for me. That being said, now that I have a very real possibility of getting into this program I am starting to become very stressed out about what I will do if I actually get in. I ALMOST regret applying this year!! So, my conundrum is that it is a full-time program (no part time option available) and according to the staff you go to class for two days (5 classes total I think) and attend your assigned field practicum for 3 days a week. Total taking up 5 days a week. I don't know quite what the actual hours are like for class and practicum, just that I will be doing something school related Mon-Fri. However, the practicum is unpaid! So, I am really stressing out about how to work while I am in school and the prospect of having to give up my job (I work 40 hours a week 12pm to 8pm at a homeless shelter). I thought about doing overnight, late-night, and weekends. I am trying to avoid overnight work or work that is TOO late because I really do not want to burn out and would like to be able to focus on learning and avoid mindlessly grinding through this period of life. I would have a long commute as well. That being said, I have nothing inherently against going to school full-time and not working in general. Ideally, I would like to give my education a lot of attention. In undergrad I did not work (although I had multiple time consuming internships). I don't feel comfortable not working this time around however because I desperately want to be more independent. I am in my mid twenties and still live with my parents, I also lived with them through undergrad and commuted to school. I am also afraid of taking on too much because I am in a serious committed relationship that I have obligations to as well. My boyfriend is very eager to move in together but I can't afford it right now and if I can't work or must work/make less then I will really have to post-pone moving out (I am afraid this will cause problems in my relationship which is more stress for me). Similarly, I feel like not having a job is a step-backwards for me because I went so long without having my own money and largely relying on others even for basic things. In addition, I don't anticipate having quite as much help this time around either so I really need money to support myself even if I stay living with my parents. Anyway, I realize a lot of this is very much my subjective wants and worries but I want to be honest about my concerns and learn from all of you. Right now, I am considering finding a job that I can work from home or one that is just on the weekends but I guess I might really need to stay at my parents house.. I really don't want to though and am desperate for a change of pace/scenery. Like, I really want to live a different life than I did in undergrad. I know mid-twenties is not THAT old and honestly I know more than a dozen other people who still live with their families because the ny-metro area is just expensive like that but yeah... I honestly would've considered saving up more money and post-pone graduate studies instead of applying when I did so I can at least focus on moving out and stuff.. however it is very difficult to find a well paying job in my desired field and my end-game of becoming a clinical social worker is not possible without the masters/licensure so I can't really make much more money or achieve my goals without trucking on with my edu. I know working and going to school is very possible depending on your program/field of study, financial situation / amount of support, and many other things. My boyfriend doesn't make that much (more than me) but will not be able to support me through school (I know some people do that). I just would like any insight or advice anyone would have for me in this particular situation. Also, if anyone has any real experience with completing this program then please share! Thank you!
  19. 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).
  20. Hello, I'm interested in the one year Master of Science in Public Policy program at NYU's Wagner School. It seems like a pretty unique program to me, and I'm having trouble finding any information about acceptance rates or thoughts on past applicants. etc. Does anyone have any thoughts about this program or is anyone else applying/does anyone know any admissions statistics? Thank you! - M
  21. 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!
  22. Does anyone know if CUNY Hunter is conducting interviews this year? I know they did last year but didn't in 2015. I've seen some interview requests on the results page for CUNY Queens and CUNY Brooklyn but nothing for Hunter yet (though I noticed no one posted on the results page for Hunter interviews last year either so...). I called the general grad admissions office and they weren't sure and directed me to the SLP department. Have called the department number twice and no one answers.

    NYC area Fall 2017 Applicants

    Saw a similar post for Cal state applicants so figured we could also use a thread for applicants on the opposite coast! What schools/concentrations are you applying too? (NYU, Hunter, Columbia, Fordham, Rutgers...) What stage of the application processes are you in and what are your stats?
  24. Hi all, I am currently a Junior pursuing my Bachelors degree in Communicative Science and Disorder (CSD). My overall GPA is 3.3, which I know is really low compared to others who are applying to SLP grad programs but part of why my overall GPA was so low is because I was a different major and decided to switch to CSD last semester. I have volunteering experiences at a hospital for an year doing some basic paperwork and assisting patients during their recovery, worked at a lab as a research assistant and have some tutoring experiences. I have not yet taken the GREs but planning on taking it later this year and then again during the summer of 2017. My dream grad schools to get into are University of Washington, NYU, Columbia (Teacher College), and MGH. I know my chances of getting into these schools aren't high but I still want to give it a shot and apply. I'm open to any suggests that you think I would need to work before I apply. Thanks in advance!
  25. Hi everyone. I'm going to be applying for grad school soon and I just wanted to come on here to ask for some advice. I'm a little torn between applying for Sotheby's Master's of Art Business at the New York location or the London location. If anyone on here has taken the course at either location can you tell me a little about your experience? Is there a reason that swayed you towards the city that you chose? Is there something that swayed you away from the other city? I would appreciate any input because I really don't know. Thank you so much!! Sidenote, Christie's is also in the running. If you have had experience taking a master's with Christie's or if you just want to give an outsiders opinion on which is the better program (Sotheby's or Christie's Art Business), I would highly appreciate it.
