Hi! I am in MAJOR need of advice! Here's the sitch: I live in California. I work for an educational non-profit that I LOVE and care for deeply. I was given an unofficial job offer last week to take over our region as a Regional Manager (making a salary, full-time hours, management experience) for minimum of a one year commitment. DAYS later, I receive awesome news! I have been accepted into the Masters of Arts for Psychology with a focus in Cognition and Neuroscience at NYU!!! NEW YORK OMG! I have dreamt of New York for nearly ten years now and even applied to NYU for my BA out of high school (which I got rejected to). This has been my dream of dreams and it is REAL now. However, I would be a transplant student moving miles and miles away, not knowing anyone, with not nearly enough saved up to steadily live. I am not afraid to work hard to get to where I want, because I've already worked hard to get to where I am. I am really battling with myself if I should attempt to defer my admission for a year and possibly take the unofficial job offer (it's not promised yet) or risk it for my dream of studying what I want where I've always wanted. WHAT DO YOU THINK?!
Greetings, my name is Alex and I am inquiring to see if I stand a chance at being accepted to Ph.d. programs in my home state of Florida. I am willing to be accepted to a smaller programs like FAU (average GPA of admitted students is 3.6), but I'm mainly only considering public programs, also I am prepared for the LMHC or MFT route if I don't stand a chance. My stats are good, but not stellar: GPA: 3.558 GRE:156Q&155V (AW is not scored yet) Graduated from Sacramento City College with honors, transferred to Humboldt State aka California State University (Humboldt) Major GPA: 3.64 Last 60 semester hours GPA: 3.97 On track to graduate MAGNA CUM LAUDE Student researcher, for 4 semesters, in 3 experiments working under a fairly well known researcher Authored a poster presented at WPA in 2016 and will again in 2017 I volunteer in 2 places right now one is in a fairly influential role at a family resource center and secondly I am conducting the day to day operations of a local nonprofit (which is an indoor park for skateboards, bicycles, scooters, rollerblades and roller-skates) including data entry and supervision of very young children.
