  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. Has anybody applied to the NYU Sackler Institute of Graduate Biomedical Sciences in PhD open Program? If yes, please post your stats and decisions here below.
  3. Hi, I'm just looking for some realistic advice. I graduated this May with a BA in Art History and Anthropology. My long term goals are to become a curator, preferably for a mid-range college museum or gallery. I am looking to apply to grad school for Fall 2020 admission. I am in the fairly early stages of exploring programs though I have a pretty good idea of what I want from a program. I am focused on modern to contemporary art (basically 1960s onward). I haven't nailed down my specific geographic focus between African and Western so I am open to programs with focuses on both regions. I am leaning towards Western art simply because I am a white woman and the African art field seems to be flooded with people like me and that gives me pause. Regardless, the programs that appeal most to me are top ten to top 20 programs, however, I think it's important that I stay realistic with my goals so I don't end up wasting a bunch of time and money on programs that I have no chance of getting into. Essentially, I went to a low-level state school (in the UNC system) and had a really crappy first year so I ended up with a 3.3 overall GPA. Luckily I didn't discover Art History until my second year so my Art History GPA is 3.85. But I haven't really done any research outside of class and I didn't graduate with any form of honors. I do have 2.5 years of experience in the museum field and I am hoping to work or intern in the field during the intermittent year before I enter school. The majority of my experience is within registration however and I have no curatorial experience as of now. I haven't taken the GRE yet but I expect I will do well as I a fairly good at standardized tests. I know I have at least two very strong recommendation letters and a third that should also be fairly strong. The programs that really appeal to me are Williams, Columbia, Bard, NYU, CUNY, Tufts, and the University of Bologna has a very interesting program taught half in English and in French. The idea of completing a terminal MA prior to a PHD appeals to me for the chance to bump myself up a bit. Basically, how ambitious can I be? Sorry for the long read, I really hope someone gets back to me. Thanks in advance!
  4. So, TL;DR deadline day is coming up for me to choose on Sol Price at SC for my MPA or do my MA IR at NYU. SC will be slightly cheaper, but price isn’t a big factor to me as much as career prospects. From posting over at r/gradschool and a couple other forums it seems like MPA is more in demand and offers more diverse options, but I’m not sure. I want to go into politics longterm, but want to lecture at the uni level in the interim, which would require a PhD. Right now the real hold up is being worried whether or not I’d be able to do a PhD in IR without a masters in the field. Also public transport in LA is obviously really bad so that presents a bit of an issue. But I’m pretty much 98 percent committed to SC as I feel head to head, the MPA would be better to have over the MA in case things don't work out with applying for/doing a PhD. I would still be able to work in governmental consulting and the like. Another concern I have is whether or not I would still be able to work for the UN or do international work with an MPA. I know that Ban Ki-Moon, the former Sec General of the UN has an MPA, but other than that, I am not sure. I would really appreciate some advice. Background- MA linguistics Glasgow uni.
  5. Hi everyone! I'm a French student, currently doing an exchange program at NYU, as part of the first year of my MA in Political Science at Panthéon-Sorbonne University. While being there, I seized the opportunity to apply to NYU Wagner's MPA in Public & Non-profit Management & Policy, and got in. I now have to choose between finishing my MA in Political Science (and choosing the Public Affairs - Territorial Public Action specialization), or accepting NYU's offer. I applied to NYU because of my strong interest in urban, environmental, racial, and socio-economic inequality policies, and wish to work for the City of New York on the short-term: those three components being rarely combined in French Masters. I also chose to apply to NYU because my current French MA is really focused on theoretical administrative work, and doesn't provide tools for policy analysis, or in-depth minority/environmental/urban policy work. Therefore, though my short-term goal would be to work for the next 2/5 years for NYC, my long-term goal is to come back to Paris and put those theoretical insights and skills to its benefit. However, though I come from a working-class family, I didn't receive any scholarship for NYU's MPA. NYU Wagner argues that most of its graduates end up having an annual salary of $74,400. In France, the average annual salary of people graduating from Panthéon-Sorbonne is $20,100. As you all surely know, it's not that French people are extremely poor, but rather that, the French State being a wellfare state (contrary to the US), it is actually absorbing several living-costs (Healthcare, education etc.). Now, the main issue is that I have no idea of what is considered a "good" salary in the US, nor do I know what the usual costs one should expect to pay while living in NYC. Therefore, considering the high probability of me taking a $60,000 loan to pay for NYU, would you say that a $74,400 annual salary would enable me to pay off my debt in 5 years (with a rhythm of 800$/month), while living "comfortably" in NYC? What are the other costs a foreigner should expect while living in the US (housing, commute, and food aside)? I honestly don't want to spend the next decade feeling anxious about paying off a degree which may not even allow me to be "well" paid. Thanks for your help everyone!! I have to give a final answer to NYU by May 15th, and am incredibly anxious about this!
  6. 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!
  7. I got accepted to NYU and Emerson's online SLP programs recently but both are very expensive. Also, Emerson's program has clinical placements starting very soon (I work) and I'd have to take a pre-requisite that would put me back another $4k. I only applied to these two schools because I didn't have the GRE/letters of rec figured out before the CSDCAS deadline. I was banking on financial aid to help me since I'm now considered an independent and got an Estimated Family Contribution (EFC) of $0. I submitted it sorta late, like mid April and added the two schools last week. I already have ~$60k of debt and don't want to go into any more. I have decent stats; 151V, 149Q, 4.5W 3.84 cumulative, 3.75 department GPA and lots of experience with research/ABA. Should I pick NYU/Emerson or should I reapply next year, pay off some loans and then choose?
  8. I recently got admitted to both Speech@NYU and Speech@Emerson and I'm most concerned about the tuition (Emerson- $67k, NYU- $82k). Do you know if they offer financial aid/scholarships/grants? I have an estimated family contribution (EFC) of 0000, so I'm hoping that they might offer me some sort of aid. My stats are: 156V, 151Q, 4.5W
  9. Hi, I got into both graduate programs and I'm not sure which one to choose. I'm from South Korea so moving to either US or UK is equally adventurous for me. NYU ITP offers MPS degree whereas RCA GID offers double masters degree. (MA from RCA and MSc from Imperial College London) And both programs will result in similar cost. Which one do you think would be a better choice?
  10. I am starting this thread as a resource for incoming applicants and those who recently got accepted to graduate programs. If you are in this field, please submit your questions, comments, and background. Thanks! My credentials: -University of Houston undegrad- Double major, Political Science and Middle Eastern Studies. GPA: 3.8 -Columbia MA MESAAS - incoming fall 2019 -UN Women internship this summer What I applied to: 1. Oxford MPhil in Oriental Studies: Rejected 2. NYU Kevo: Accepted 3. Columbia MESAAS: Accepted 4. SOAS MA Gender in the Middle East: Accepted. I look forward to hearing from you all!
  11. Ive secured an internship at the United Nations in NYC but the dates overlap with the fall semester. NYU has said they'll give me course credit for the internship, whereas Oxford says apply next year with no guarantee of admissions. What is a better program in the long run? I'm interested in applying for PhD's in America after I've completed the masters. Is oxford as prominent for US PhD's? Thanks!
  12. Hi! I'm currently a senior at TCNJ. I'm a Psych/Public Health dual major. I'm just going to list some of the things that will hopefully make me stand out, but I'm also going to attach my (really, really rough and in progress so don't judge) CV for more detail and stuff: my gpa is a 3.93/4.0 Phi Beta Kappa Lots of work with diverse individuals due to TCNJ's proximity to Trenton 120 hours in Fall 2017 at a nonprofit in Trenton that works with adolescents of different demographics (LGBTQ, homeless, etc) with emotional and behavioral challenges I've been in a research lab on campus since January that focuses on youth and community development, doing two major projects at a Trenton full-service elementary school DBT infused group work with 4th graders Mindfulness First author of an accepted Eastern Psychological Conference presentation submission I guess I'm just trying to figure out how competitive these MSW programs are & what my chances are? also, if anyone wants to review my previous statement, lmk (: real rough.docx
  13. Hi everyone! I'm an International Student. I applied to NYU's Tisch School of the Arts MFA Dramatic Writing Program from December 19th and I was told that notifications are sent out ANYTIME between MARCH 1st and APRIL frickin 15th! I am going crazy!!! It's almost the end of March and I haven't seen ANY applicants on this site with a decision for this program. In fact, I think one of the key committee members has been out of office for 1 week or so, with no "return date" in his automated email reply, so I don't know when he's expected back. I don't want to keep emailing admissions to annoy anyone, but this is ROUGH! At least with Brown University, they stuck to the date they gave (although it was just as long of a wait). At least they stuck to their date. Tisch, I don't know what's taking them so long... I mean... they have 1 month AND 15 days and I haven't seen ONE decision on the Results Search page... sigh... I'm also waiting on Boston U's MA Journalism which I was told would be out by next week.... but Tisch.... what is going on in that dept? Does anyone know? Thanks!
  14. Hi guys, I currently got accepted into NYU Interactive Telecommunication Program (no scholarship) and Pratt Information Experience Design (awarded with scholarship). Question: which one should I go for? I love both of the programs and they are both prestigious schools. The fact that Pratt has awarded with a fair amount of scholarship has indeed made it very tempting... On the other hand, the fame and community of NYU ITP are very fascinating to me as well. Could some give me any advice? Thanks a lot in advance
  15. I was admitted to SIPA for the MPA in Development Practice and NYU Wagner for the MPA in Public & Non Profit Management & Policy (International specialization) and was fortunate to receive funding from both. I'm aware that it's possible to request additional funding from each school, but as of now I'd be paying ~45k out of pocket for the 2 years at NYU and ~68k for the 2 years at Columbia. With a 22k difference (and this doesn't even include living expenses!), I'd like to know how Columbia's and NYU's programs compare (in terms of academics, internship & career opportunities, networking, practical skills training, faculty accessibility, etc.) and if I would be getting infinitely more from Columbia that would justify the extra 22k. Will I have better job prospects and networking opportunities if I go to Columbia over NYU? Is the International MPA track at NYU comparable to SIPA's MPA-DP program in terms of skills & material learned? How accessible & involved are faculty at each? If you were in my shoes what would you pick and why? P.S I want to work in program management / development for an international NGO or foundation upon graduation with plans to found my own organization in the near future (hence why those hard skills & networks are extremely important to me).
  16. I've been admitted to both ITP ($10K/y scholarship) and IDM (no scholarship) at NYU. As far as I researched, ITP's tuition costs almost twice as much as IDM's. I heard the two programs are very similar in what they teach and students can take classes interchangeably and they even share the same building and classrooms. When applying, ITP was my first choice mainly because it is more recognized and has a larger network of alumni but I'm not sure if these factors would outweigh the tuition difference. Which one should I choose? Any advice would be greatly appreciated!
  17. As said above, I really don't know what to do. MS in Information Systems on NYU or MS in Computer Science in UChicago. Costs are the same. Any thoughts?
  18. As I, like several others, might find myself facing a choice between NYU and programs in other—far cheaper—cities, I am hoping that there might be a current NYU student or two hanging around that could share their experiences living in New York on the NYU English program funding. I know the finding package is robust, but I am worried about, among other considerations, rent and the cost of food. Grateful for any insight anyone can provide!
  19. Hey everyone! Is anyone else torn between NYU vs Teachers College for a MA in Psychology? I feel like I'm leaning towards Teachers College, but I honestly don't know which school is better. My ultimate goal is to obtain a doctorate after I complete the Masters program. Thanks!
  20. Hello all! I have recieved admits from the following universities: University of Texas at Austin - Business Analytics - No scholarship New York University (GSAS) - Data Science - No scholarship University of California at LA - Business Analytics - No scholarship Arizona State - SE Awaiting - Rutgers NB (Data Science) Rejects - UWash - Data Science USC - Data Science CMU - MIS BIDA (16 Months), Data Science I am confused between UT Austin's Business Analytics and NYU's Data Science. My main ask is for a course that would give me higher chances of employability down the lane, without a bomb of loan in the pocket. My profile: International student | GRE - 321/4.5 | Toefl - 113 | Work experience - 30 months (Java developer, Deloitte) | Undergrad - 77%, ECE, national papers Any inputs and leads are much appreciated. Thanks in advance!! P.S: UT Austin's and UCLA's course does not permit TA/GA and on campus jobs. Everything needs to go from our loan. Cost wise: UCLA > UT Austin
  21. Still haven't heard back from NYU. Anyone else still waiting to hear back from schools?
  22. Hi All, I know this is really last minute but I have been going back and forth on my decision and couldn't really decide. Basically I applied for the applied statistics in education and got accepted by Teachers College (Ed.M. in Measurement and Evaluation), Vanderbilt (M.Ed. in Quantitative Methods), and NYU (MS in Applied Statistics in Social Science Research, A3SR). The program at Columbia seems weird because for the past six years or so there have been only two years when the program got only two students. The other years there were no students who chose this program (including last year). I'm pretty sure this is not a good sign but wonder if anyone has any other opinions (or an inside scoop) on this. The program at Vanderbilt is very new (they accepted their first cohort last year, 5 students in total) and it has an internship part attached to it. Basically all students have to complete either a semester long or a summer internship before they graduate. I'm not sure about the location (I wasn't able to make a visit) and the surrounding job market. If someone could provide insights on this, it would be very much appreciated. The program at NYU is also new (they started two years ago and they have their first graduates this May). It seems nothing special but it is considered a STEM program (as an international student, that means I can have H1B visa lottery three times instead of one) so I'm still considering it. They expect to recruit ~15 people this year. So I'm looking for information on: 1. The quality of these three programs. 2. The location and the surrounding job market. 3. Is it worth to go to NYU just because of it's a STEM program? Thank you all in advance.
  23. I am applying for a masters program in Clinical Psychology at NYU and Teachers College. I graduated with a bachelor of Science and majored in Psychology from a top school. I really want to go to Columbia Teachers college but unfortunately my GPA is low at a 3.2. I am currently looking for places to volunteer and do research before I apply to have something to add to my resume. Does anyone know if I have any chance of getting in or anything else I should do to make my application better. I am not sure how hard these programs are to get into but I am desperate to go and would love to know if anyone has any information about these schools.
  24. Hi! I've been accepted to a few schools but now its decision time and i'm picking between two schools and I'd really like any input or advice. I was accepted to NYU Wagner- MPA of Public and Nonprofit Management and Policy & the Middlebury Institute of International Studies in Monterey (MIIS) MPA- Specialization undecided. MIIS: The benefits of attending MIIS is that it has a great location in Monterey, CA. A second language would be incorporated into my curriculum. The rent is cheaper. I have nearly a half-tuition scholarship. Establishing connections seems promising. Cons: Less recognized school. Not as many opportunities as NYC. Far away from home (would like to return after living abroad for 8 years). They aren't very accommodating in regards to part time students and full-time workers. 60 credit program. NYU: Benefits would be that it is known to be prestigious. The program is well recognized throughout the world. Would establish very good connections. NYC offers lots of work opportunities. My move will be easy since it's close to home. Able to travel more easily. Cons: I don't want to live in the city. Won't know about a scholarship until 2-3 weeks from now, but was initially rejected scholarship so it doesn't seem likely I will be granted one. City is SO expensive. Tuition would be about 75 grand. Already have 32 grand in loans and that would really kill me. What are your experiences and opinions in regards to either programs, schools and with any loans?! Would it be manageable making 55 grand a year after graduation? What if I want to start a family soon? Let me know any and all opinions! Thanks!!!
  25. Anyone hear back from this program yet or know a notification of decision date?
