  1. Hi there, so I am currently trying to apply to an MA program in Art History. Currently, I'm looking at NYU, Williams, Bard, UPenn, SAIC, and Columbia. I'm getting a bit nervous since my BA was in Anthropology with a minor in Classical Civilizations. My focus was in Roman and Greek Art so I did take a good amount of art history classes. The problem is I want to switch over to contemporary art with a focus on social movements. Is that going to be hard to achieve? Also would anyone happen to know any professors/programs that center on contemporary art with a focus on social movements? I know that NYU and UPenn seem to have pretty good professors and courses that have such focus, but was just wondering of more. Since first finding this site I keep on hearing a lot about Boston University and Courtauld. Thanks for the responses!
  2. I am struggling to find information about New York University's funding opportunities for students in the Communication Sciences and Disorders program. Do they offer any funding in the form of scholarships, grants, research assistantships, graduate assistantships, etc?
  3. I'm new here, so I apologize if I ask too many questions! Basically, I'm currently a senior at NYU and in May I'll be graduating with a B.A. in Math and Psychology. Going into my senior year, I had been planning on applying to several Ph.D. programs in Data Science and Statistics and my career goal was to be a data scientist. However, upon meeting with the professor whose lab I do research in, he stated that it would be very difficult for me to get into any Ph.D. program with only a year of undergraduate research experience. So, I applied to 6 Masters programs and the Ph.D. in Data Science program at NYU (this has been my top choice since sophomore year so no way I wasn't going to give it a shot!). Fast forward to now, I made it up to the interview for the Ph.D. program, but yesterday I got an email saying I was offered admission into the Master's program in the Center for Data Science, and that I am not eligible for any scholarships. I have also been admitted to the Master's of Engineering in Computer Science program at Cornell Tech, as well as a couple of other M.S. programs at NYU, and I'm waiting to hear back from the three other programs. Here's where my questions come up. As I think about it more and more, the program at Cornell Tech becomes more appealing. For one thing, I think it's a more versatile degree. They have data science courses I could take, and with the degree itself I'd be a candidate for software engineer positions. As such, after completing the degree I'd likely be able to go down either route, albeit the data science route would be a bit tougher with this degree than with the M.S. in Data Science. However, I've also found jobs in software engineering to be more appealing lately. I think around my junior year of college I started to realize a software engineer career seemed like a good fit for my interests, but by that point I thought it was too late in the game to switch routes unless I got another Bachelor's in Comp Sci - who knew! Also, I've been completely lost at where to look for scholarships. I applied to one that Cornell Tech sent out the application to, but I haven't received any merit scholarships from the programs I've been admitted to. That being said, even without scholarships, the Cornell Tech degree would be approximately $8,000 less right off the bat. Additionally, it's a one year program, as opposed to the one at NYU which is a two year program. Is it presumptuous of me to think it'd be reasonable to take out $40-50k in loans, with the expectation that with the Computer Science engineering degree I'll likely be able to make decent money as a software engineer in NYC not long after graduating next spring? If it helps, I'll be graduating from undergrad with about $10,500 in loans, and if I do get a well-paying job after grad school my plan is to live as if I'm making $40k a year until my loans are paid off. I'm the first in my family to go to college, let alone grad school, so any advice is greatly appreciated! I've heard that some companies will pay for you to get a M.Eng., but honestly at this point I'd rather get the degree first since I don't think I'm qualified for many tech jobs currently. As a recap, my two main questions are: 1. Is it a smart decision to do a Master of Engineering in C.S. at Cornell Tech when I'm open to becoming either a software engineer or data scientist? 2. Is it reasonable to assume I'll be able to get a decent job with a M.Eng. degree in C.S. and that I'd be able to pay of ~$60k in loans in a reasonable amount of time? Thank you!
  4. Hi, I am receiving a lot of mixed feedback about NYU Steinhardt's online master's program. I got accepted there and at another school but I would be required to move. I don't know if I should choose the program where I would get to be in the classroom (but move across the country) or pick the school where I get to stay home and do it online.. I think hearing from students who actually went through the program or even know someone who went through the program would be really helpful. Please let me know anything you know about NYU Steinhardt's online full-time master's program.
  5. Hi! I'm making my decision as to where to go to graduate school next fall to get my master's in social work. I've been accepted to USC, NYU, and Columbia and I'm having a very very very hard time making a decision! I've received scholarships from NYU and USC, which help with the tuition, but by no means cover it. With all being said and done USC will still wind up costing me about 80k for the two years (before financial aid) NYU will wind up costing me 60k (before financial aid) and Columbia will be a whopping 100k (before financial aid or scholarship info). I want to focus on clinical work and eventually open a private practice working with adults. I currently live in Los Angeles and would LOVE to find a valid reason to stay here. I went to college in NY so I'm not entirely opposed to moving there, but I do think I want to end up back in Los Angeles to practice. Does anyone have any input as to which school has the best clinical program?? I've heard USC sort of churns out MSW students, but I think it looks like an amazing school. NYU also looks incredible, I'm just not positive I want to move back to New York, and to be honest I think Columbia is the lowest on my list because it focuses more on policy. So any input would be AMAZING!!! Thanks
  6. 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!
  7. Any other international students out there in the process of accepting an offer to NYU for the Fall 2020 semester during the COVID-19 pandemic? Have you started your i-20 application? I was hoping to attend Steinhardt for the Fall, but with everything going on, the uncertainty has me anxious in moving forward with my acceptance. Considering the cost of tuition, finding living arrangements, and other expenses, has the pandemic changed your plans? As of now, NYU plans to have in person classes this Fall, but who knows how things will move forward... Do you think it's worth the cost for online classes? Have any of you experienced any other updates other than the extended tuition deposit deadline? Sorry for the amount of questions, but I haven't been able to connect with anyone in regards to the topic. Thank you!
  8. 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
  9. Hi all! I applied and was accepted to both NYU and Columbia, and am trying to choose between the two. I would love anyone's opinions on the two, and also wanted to create a thread for NYU and CU folks who applied, were accepted, and/or committed?
  10. Hey all, I feel really fortunate to have been accepted into both the Columbia School of Journalism and NYU's Carter Institute. I'm looking to do a joint IR/journalism degree, so at Columbia that's a joint degree program with SIPA, while at NYU it's the GloJo program. I love NYU and have gotten an awesome scholarship package from them, whereas I've gotten a very small amount of funding from Columbia. Seems like a no-brainer to choose NYU in this situation, but I'd be curious to hear other people's opinions more broadly on NYU journo vs. Columbia journo.
  11. Hi please help. I've applied to a few PhD. and Masters programs and haven't heard back from most but I got wait-listed for one PhD. program. Today I got accepted into the NYU Psychology M.A program after being rejected by the doctorate program and I wanted to know if it was worth enrolling in? I have 2 years of experience as an RA at a hospital and was hoping I could get into a decent PhD. program but if nothing works out should I accept the Masters program or would it be smarter to wait a year and apply to PhD programs in December? I'm the first one in my family to pursue higher education and I have nobody else to ask so I would really appreciate any input. Thanks a lot!
  12. Hi! I've just been accepted to NYU for Journalism, magazine and digital storytelling concentration, for fall 2020. Anyone else accepted and/or planning on attending? Still waiting to hear back from Columbia but NYU has actually always been my first choice!

  14. Anyone hear back from NYU Steinhardt for the Food Studies MA? Can't seem to find much info on it anywhere
  15. Has anyone heard anything yet? A bit worried while waiting for the results...
  16. Does anyone know how many applicants they are accepting for sociocultural and related subfields at NYU this year? Has anyone heard back?
  17. Hello All, I recently graduated from my undergraduate degree in Environmental Science in the US but after having worked in the field for a few months, I have found a new passion in Art History and conservation. I am looking to apply for a master's program, but it requires 4 credits in Art History classes, of which I have none. I am wondering if it is worth finding a post-bac program that would fulfill these 4 credits or if it would be better to take 4 individual classes at a college in order to fulfill them? I am not a US citizen so it would be almost impossible to fulfill these credits in a Community college in the US. Therefore, my options lie in the EU. As I am less familiar with schools around Europe, does anyone know of universities in Italy that allow for non-degree enrollment for getting credits from classes? Thank you! Federico
  18. Hello, Did anyone else apply for the dual degree program? I'm interested to see what everyone is studying/ interested in doing within the program?
  19. 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
  20. 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.
  21. 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!
  22. 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.
  23. 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!
  24. 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!
  25. 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?
