    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!!
  3. 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.

    Emerson Online ?

    Has anyone been accepted and apprehensive about it not being accredited by ASHA yet ? Deciding between Emerson and NYU Speech distance learning. Any insight would be greatly appreciated !
  5. Hi! I was recently accepted into two great schools for a Master's program in biotechnology: NYU Tandon: M.S. in Biotechnology (might swith to the M.S. in Biotechnology & Entrepreneurship) University of Pennsylvania: Master of Biotechnology Program. I'm having a difficult time deciding between them, as both of them have good programs. Any advice? Additionally, does anyone know how is the biotech scene in NY like? Are there good opportunities as in other big biotech hubs? Thank you!
  6. I've been accepted into two good schools. NYU : Masters in Biotechnology & Entrepreneurship at the Tandon School of Engineering Brown University: Masters in Biotechnology. I'm facing a very difficult time deciding between these two. I am also going to be an international student. Any advice on this regard would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!
  7. Hi! I know it's a bit late now but I just received my offer to MS in data science from Columbia and MS in Computer Science (Scientist and Engineers) from USC, besides MS in data science in NYU. I am having great difficulty deciding among these three programs. My brain literally shut down and beg for other's suggestions... A bit of background, I am graduating from UCSD majoring in Applied Mathematics and minor in Computer science with specialization in Machine Learning. I am a bit inclined towards becoming a data scientist in the future but I don't mind studying computer science. For now I am mainly concerned about the career aspect but I won't completely turn down further research opportunities. People were saying NYU has great curriculum and heavy in machine learning while Columba has recently invested greatly into the DS institute. My personal preference would be a smaller department with more chances interacting with faculties. Any suggestions? Thank you sooooooo much!

    Psychology Masters - NYU

    Hi all, I recently got accepted into NYU's general psychology master's program, and initially I was really excited at the prospect of it. However, upon doing more research, I found that most people seem to have negative things to say about it. To be honest, knowing NYU's reputation and caliber of professor's/ quality of classes, I was surprised to see this. I'm wondering if anyone has any more insight (either someone having attended or knowing someone who has attended) that could clear this up? I'm still leaning towards attending, especially as I have very limited experience in psychology and I thought this would be a great way to build some. Thanks for reading all of this and I would really appreciate any insight at all!!

    PhD in Cancer Biology

    Hello everyone! I am new in this Forum so I don't exactly know how it works... But anyway, I am going to explain my situation and see if I can get any help (which I would really appreciate). I am planning to apply to my PhD this fall as an international student. I am from Europe and I did my bachelor there. It is my first time ever applying to an American university, so any advice would be helpful. - Bachelor/Masters in Pharmacy (I put Masters because it takes 5 years, it is considered Bachelor+Master in Europe, and I have a paper that gives it the academic equivalence to Doctor of Pharmacy in the US, if that works). My GPA is 7.1/10. I know. Everyone is going to think that is really low, but in Europe and in pharmacy school, nobody has a GPA of 9/10, for example. So mine is pretty good at my university. I also have honors in my final thesis (cancer-related) and it is considered the best thesis of my promotion. - Research experience: one semester as an undergrad (around 25 h per week), 6 month as an exchange student in America (no classes, just research), currently doing research in one of the Top20 Universities in the U.S. (not an Ivy, but ranked better than most of them). By the time I apply my experience in this last university will be of 1 year but by the time I start my PhD it would be of 2 years. - Other experience: 1 year as a retail pharmacist, 6 month internship as a clinical pharmacist in a Hospital in Europe. - Publications: 3 posters (2 Top European conferences and 1 at the university that I am working in right now) but no PubMed publications... - Speaker at one conference. - Lots of volunteering in Heathcare. I also just got a 6-month fellowship (cancer-related) from a really prestigious foundation, only 27 people in the U.S got it and it was one per institution. TOEFL: I took it a while ago and I got a 104, the minimum required is 100 in most Ivys, maybe I will retake it if I have time. GRE: Haven't taken it yet but I am currently studying for it, I am planning to take it in one month. GRE Biology: is it worth taking it? I wanted to apply to Ivy leagues and high-ranked universities for my PhD in Cancer Biology, but I also want to be realistic and know honest opinions as if I stand any chance to get in. Thank you!
  10. Hoping some of you who have been there already could give an undergraduate a little direction? I've been admitted to NYU GLS (not the core program) and GW Elliott School of International Affairs. My goal is to work with NGOs and create effective policy centered on human rights issues, but we all know that could evolve into something else. I was also accepted to American, but I really want to be on a city campus. If anyone has had good or bad experiences, please share. Thanks!!!!
  11. Hi I'm an international student and I recently got into a master's program for NYU and WUSTL. I know at a first glance NYU seems much more superior, but I have a few issues that bugs me. One is obviously the money. WUSTL offered a full tuition remission for one year ( not sure about my 2nd year, they didn't say anything in the letter about extending the offer to my second year) NYU offered about 20k off from tuition for one year. They did say this offer is contingent in my second year, so I need to hold a good academic standing in my first year. It's also obvious that NYC is notorious for expensive rents and other fees. I know NYU is one of the top universities in relation to film, and NYC itself is full of resources and opportunities for film-related work, but the money is a bit of a worry for me. Also, although I've lived my life in a big city for +15 years, I don't think I'm such a city person based on past experiences, so I'm worried whether I'll be able to get used to the environment. I really don't need the extra stress. All this seems to aim at going to WUSTL, but my other problem is that I haven't really decided for certain whether I want to get into PhD after my master's for now, since I ultimately aim to work as a film programmer rather than teaching academically. If I was certain about getting into PhD, I probably would choose go to WUSTL, since I have another chance of applying for PhDs in the future. But since I may just finish my studies with a Master's degree, it just increases my uncertainty about going to WUSTL Master's Program. I did also get into UCLA and UT Austin Master's as well, but they didn't offer any funding or tuition remission, so I'm only considering NYU and WUSTL right now. I've been stressing over this for days, but I just can't make up my mind. Any advice would be really helpful.

    NYU FALL2018

    Any NYU admits for MS CS fall 2018??
  13. Hi guys! I was accepted to NYU's on-campus program for Fall 2018, and am very seriously considering it. I'm an out-of field applicant, though, and right now I'm missing 4 prerequisites. I'm wondering -- do any of you know how their online prerequisite system works? Like, what is the structure of those courses? And would I have access to those courses during this summer, prior to starting the on-campus program? Any information would be much appreciated!

    NYU MPA or GWU MPA?

    Hi All, I've been accepted to NYU Wagner for the MPA and into GW's MPA program at the Trachtenberg School. My concern is, would Wagner be just as good as GW's program? I've heard that Wagner is very focused on domestic policy vs. international, which is my interest. At Wagner I would pursue the international specialization, how strong is it? This is one of my main concern. The reason I am leaning very heavily towards NYU is because my family is there and I could live at home, which would mean being able to do school full-time (finish in 2 years) and save living costs. It is also possible that NYU will be giving me some aid, whereas GW has me on a waitlist (looking unlikely I will get anything). I am also already living and working in DC, so it would be easier to transition to GWU, but I would work full-time and go to GW part-time. I am super torn because I just want to pick the right school that will set me up for a strong future. Any thoughts or advice? I appreciate it!

    NYU ITP vs RCA IED

    I've been accepted to the Royal College of Art's IED program and NYU ITP. I'm at a little bit of a toss up between the two — the programs are similar in many ways and different in others. Any insight, advice, or suggestions about the schools and programs would be much appreciated!
  16. Hey there, I applied for the NYU GSAS MS CS program and got rejected, but I have been admitted to the NYU Tandon School of Engineering. I had some questions that I hope somebody can answer. I wanted to know if, while attending Tandon, I can get some opportunities to attend classes in machine learning at Courant, and maybe contribute to the research being done by the professors at NYU Courant. Also, I would like to know if there is any protocol or chance that I can shift from Tandon to Courant. Any help would be appreciated :). Regards,

    MPH: UCSD vs. NYU

    Hello, I have been accepted into both UCSD's and NYU's Master of Public Health programs, and I have to make a decision by April 15th. These are both new programs (I believe NYU's MPH is in its fourth year and this fall will be the first year for UCSD's MPH), and I'm having difficulties deciding between the two. I'm interested in epidemiological methods, environmental health, and especially climate change impacts on health. I also plan on pursuing a PhD after this MPH, and I am quite interested in UCSD's JDP PhD. Does anyone have any suggestions or have any useful information on either of these programs that could help me out? Thanks in advance--I appreciate it!

  19. Hi everyone! I'm from Oregon and accepted to NYU and waitlisted at Chapman. I'm super excited about NYU and had a trip all booked for admitted students day only to be snowed out of NY. I ended up going this week to walk around and I loved the campus, i'm just wondering if anyone could let me know their impressions from admitted students day! Doing my post-bacc in Portland I really don't know a ton about the program which makes me nervous going forward. Does anyone have a sample schedule of a course schedule? Other schools have that front a center but I can't find anything from NYU. Thanks for any info/Links to facebook groups! It's intimidating to think about moving cross country with so little info
  20. Just wondering if anyone has heard back from NYU costume studies this year?? I haven’t got any notification after an interview on March 9th..... Radio silence for almost a month now..
  21. Hi everyone! I am new to this site so excuse me if I'm not posting this in the right forum. I am international fulbright grantee, and I have been admitted to the following programs with the following financial aid: Columbia University, MA in American Studies, 50% tuition reduction Brown University, MA in Public Humanities, 40% tuition reduction The New School for Social Research, MA in Liberal Studies, 55% tuition reduction UChicago MAPH, $8,000 award NYU Gallatin MA in Individualized studies (waiting to hear about funding) NYU Steindhardt MA in Media, Culture and Communications (waiting to hear about funding) If NYU does not give me a better offer than Columbia or The New School, these two are my top choices. Right now I will have to get an additional $25,000 per year for Columbia or $10,000 per year for NSSR, which seems feasible considering there are two additional grants I can apply to, a great student loan I can apply to from my national bank (I have the funds but at the interest rate of this loan, it is way more convenient for me to take it) and University work. Considering my situation, should I risk the extra cost and accept Columbia or take less of a risk and go to NNSR instead? In terms of the programs, NSSR seems way more cutting edge and heterodox, with which I identify, but I am sure I can get solid knowledge at Columbia too, even if -as it seems to me- it might be more academic and orthodox. I'd really appreciate any input! Thanks

    NYU Vs. Columbia TC?

    I know this is a good problem to have but I am having a hard time deciding between New York University and Columbia... I have visited both and love both. The programs seem very similar and I'm sure clinical experiences are very similar as well. Does anyone have any thoughts or insight? Please help me haha
  23. Applied to the game design MFA in NYU Tisch. Saw in the database that someone has already been waitlisted for the program I applied but I haven’t heard of anything yet. Does that imply that I’ll be rejected? Also there’s one been accepted in the database.

    UChicago vs. NYU vs. Columbia

    Hey everyone! I have been accepted to both NYU and UChicago so far, and am wondering if I could have insight as far as the areas the schools are located in, and their programs! I am also waiting to hear back from Columbia, and am submitting my UPenn app soon. I have visited both NY and Chicago very recently, but of course the tourist perspective is different than the resident perspective. There are several pros and cons for each of my acceptances thus far, however the pros and cons of each don't quite overlap (in my opinion). NYU: Lots of familial/peer support, program seems more focused on my direct interests, tons of things to do in the area, gave my $17,000 a year UChicago: Rank, not as much familial support, gave me $25,900 a year, beautiful city with a lot to do, not as expensive. As I mentioned, I am still waiting from Columbia, however I know a few people who were accepted last school year who received full tuition scholarships, so I'm hopeful that I'd get some sort of money from them too? As you all can tell, I am at a weird crossroads, so I'd appreciate any feedback! Thank you you all so much!!
  25. I am having trouble deciding between NYU and George Washington University for grad school. At NYU I would be studying International Relations at GSAS while at GW I would get an M.A. in international Affairs with a concentration in international development. My hope after obtaining my masters is to work for an NGO that focuses on trade and development and eventually go back to get a doctorate in International relations, focusing on trade, development, and economic relations. I prefer D.C. as a city in general as it is much nicer in my opinion, but I don’t mind New York either. I understand that both are going to be very expensive in terms of living which I can accept though I really hope to not have to share a bedroom which seems like the only option in NYC from what I have been looking at. I have heard from many professionals that NYU is a better choice because it is better known and higher ranked in general, though not necessarily for the field I am hoping to go into. *I might also mention that I was also accepted to American University for International Economic Relations. I absolutely love this school too (especially the campus) but have found that the majority of people I talk to have not heard of it, which seems a little scary to me. I like the idea of having a more focused M.A. After receiving my B.A. in International Affairs I was often told by employers that this degree seemed too broad. American would give me the opportunity to show a little more focus in my resume.
