    Getting more $$ from schools??

    Hi! How tf do I get schools to give me more money (i.e. reevaluate my financial aid and scholarships given)? Like who do I contact, how do I go about it? Do I email a school and say "Hi, you gave me ___ but this other school is giving me____ so could I have more?" lol. I am specifically trying to get more money from UMich and Columbia, but would love to hear anyone's advice/experience from literally any program.
  3. Hi Is there anyone here who is applying / current or ex student of the Masters in Development Studies/ Masters in International Affairs Program at IHEID, Geneva. I had a couple of queries on admissions, scholarships and career prospects. thanks

    Suffolk University MBA: Negotiating

    Hi all, I'm posting the below for my friend who has asked for help but doesn't have a Grad Cafe account: I was just accepted to Suffolk University's Sawyer Business School MBA/MFS program. I haven't seen any previous posts about Sawyer, so I wanted to ask how anyone else on Grad Cafe has gone about asking for scholarship money. I received a scholarship for a certain percentage of tuition, but I'd like to ask/negotiate for more. Any Suffolk or MBA-specific tips would be helpful! Thanks!

    Suffolk University MBA

    Hi folks, I'm posting the below for my friend who has asked for help but doesn't have a Grad Cafe account: I was just accepted to Suffolk University's Sawyer Business School MBA/MFS program. I haven't seen any previous posts about Suffolk/Sawyer, so I wanted to ask if anyone else here has been accepted, and if so, if they are planning on accepting!
  6. Hi everyone! I have been a listening and spoken language teacher of the deaf for 5 years and absolutely love my job! I work closely with speech therapists in my current position, and am very interested in pursuing a degree in speech-language pathology in order to expand both my knowledge and career opportunities within the field. That being said, I feel rather intimidated by prerequisites (I already hold a masters in deaf education and may be able to transfer credits, but believe I would still have more classes to take), graduate school admissions, the GRE, and mostly the tuition and costs of graduate school. I was wondering if anyone has any graduate program suggestions, knows of scholarship opportunities that could apply to me, or just advice in general. Thank you in advance for your help!
  7. Hello everyone! I am applying for a Doctorate in Psychology at UBC. I have pretty much completed my application but for the funding section, though I am late to apply for a lot of the available scholarships, the site says I can apply for it after joining if I am accepted. Also, UBC has a minimum funding policy for all accepted graduates. There is a section in the funding part of the application that asks if I would join if I didn't get funding and I can choose 'likely' or 'unlikely'. Since I have funds available to fund at least the first year, after which I can apply for funding, I have chosen 'likely'. I am hoping I will be able to apply for funding late if I get accepted. My question is, would this factor into the selection process? I have listed all the scholarships I would be applying for in the future in my application. Is anyone else applying for PhDs in psychology at UBC? Help!
  8. Hi everyone! I'm an undergraduate SLP student and I am about to complete my first semester at a cal state since I'm a community college transfer student. I feel behind because I did not put in the effort to meet with professors all semester and get to know them. I participate and ask questions in class every once and a while, but I'm simply just another student. However, I need a faculty member for programs and scholarships to be a recommender by late January. How should I approach them without being too pushy? I understand it's very late & I should have been putting in the effort. Any tips?
  9. Hey everyone! I wrote a little thing about my journey through my 20s, getting through graduate school, and now dealing with my hefty amount of student loans. Views and shares help me win. So Read away! Thank you! https://www.studentloanplanner.com/speech-language-pathologist-helping-others/
  10. I am applying to PhDs in Finance for Fall 2019. I want to see if I can secure some external funding before starting my PhD. I haven't found much information, besides Fulbright. I am a permanent resident in the US, so any scholarship/funding opportunity that has as a prerequisite being a US Citizen is out of the question. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated!
  11. Hello Grad Cafe, So I've just been informed I've been offered admission to a DC school to study an online MPH, with an option of becoming a campus student, should I decide later. I'm waiting to hear back from two other programs I've applied for. One is an Ivy league institution, the other is the number one MPH program in the country. All three options are online programs. My question is: Are there any full tuition scholarships/grants for the MPH. The DC school didn't offer me any scholarship whatsoever, hence why I'm still hoping to hear back from the other two school's with something towards tuition. I am a domestic student, due to having dual nationality, and so not considered an international student. I have been researching and saw some scholarships on this site: https://www.publichealthonline.org/scholarships-and-grants/ but I wondered if anyone else may know of any other options for scholarships? Advice, tips, suggestions welcomed.
  12. Hey guys! First things first, is there anyone else who applied to EUPADRA and has been short-listed and invited for the interview? Second - I have got a small concern, maybe someone can help me out in resolving it. I received a full scholarship from IMCEERES and I have to reply to them by April 9th. Also, I am waiting for results from EPS next week, as well as MA in Human Rights at CEU (Central European University, Budapest). The problem is that according to those who already study EUPADRA, even after the interview they are usually notified only at the end of May about the scholarships. So I am afraid to reject IMCEERES and EPS with CEU (if I get scholarships from them) and then also get rejected by EUPADRA. Because EUPADRA is my top priority. Hope I explained it clearly. Any suggestions? Thank you in advance. Kind regards.

    UIC MHA Grad Program

    Hi there, Have any UIC MHA applicants received notice of acceptance or denial? Also curious to hear plans for tuition. i.e. assistantship, grants, scholarships, etc. Thanks for you time.
  14. 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!
  15. So I was accepted to Boston University today, which is my top choice, but with no mention of a scholarship. I see on the results page others have been offered scholarships with their admission. I also was accepted to George Washington University with a $42,000 scholarship. I would much rather attend BU, but cannot without some funding. A few people recommended (politely) using the scholarship from GW school as leverage for receiving funding at other schools. Anyone heard of this actually being a thing? If so, what's the best way of doing it? Thanks for the help!
  16. So I'm going to be optimist and hope I am accepted into a graduate school this year, but I'm just wondering about how to pay for it? Anyone been there, done that? Or know someone who is. My credit is mediocre and I don't have much saved up. Also I don't have a cosigner. I work full time now, but I know you can't work at all during these programs. Any advice would be appreciated! Thanks!
  17. Hi everyone! I just came across this forum and am so relieved, it's amazing to learn more about others' experiences working on applications, eagerly waiting, and making decisions. I'm wondering if anyone has experience/advice asking for additional financial aid for MSW programs? I was accepted to NYU's 2-Year program with some funding, but it likely is still not enough for me to be able to attend. NYU has been a top choice for me, so I'm trying to figure out the right words and strategy to ask for more. Many thanks in advance!
  18. Hi everyone, I am applying to Master of Social Work programs. I also want to be able to find some outside scholarships, in case I am not offered any scholarships. Where are you applying for outside scholarships? The only one I can really think of is the Hispanic Scholarship Fund. Any advice and help is greatly appreciated!
  19. Hi! I'm interested in applying to Masters of Marketing and/or Masters of Management (Marketing) programs. I was wondering if anyone has completed either the Masters of Marketing at Trinity College Dublin or Masters of Management (Marketing) at University of Melbourne? If anyone has partaken in either can you let me know your experience? Did you find that it was easy to acquire work once back in the U.S.? Where did you go to search for scholarships to fund your studies? If you have any other recommendations for schools I should apply to that offer these programs please let me know. Thank you for your help!
  20. Hey guys, I was offered a place at the University of Bath to do my masters in Microbiology. The only problem is that I can't really afford the cost of paying as an international student. I was looking online and mostly found scholarships for 3rd world country students. So I was wondering if anyone knew of any scholarships that US students can apply to. Thanks!
  21. My husband is deciding between two MBA programs and stupidly forged his scholarship award to submit to the other school. Will school A verify with school B if this amount is true? If he gets rescinded from school A, will he be blacklisted from all universities in the States? Will school B rescind his offer as well? Sorry for the panic. I really think him going for his MBA will help our family, so this is freaking us out.
  22. Hey everyone,,, I'm currently looking for PhD scholarships abroad. My desired research is multi-disciplinary & specific, so it's not easy to find professors who are specialized & willing to supervise me. It's something about human cultural evolution, & children's value formation. My current scheme in searching for scholarships is: search for professors who have relevant research interests --> find their universities --> find out if their universities offer fully-funded PhD programs & stipends so I can apply to them --> email the professor to see if she's interested, so I can apply to the university. However, sometimes I find announcements about university scholarships, like for ex., the Swiss government scholarships for international students. Do you think if I apply to such scholarships, & if I get accepted, would it be easy to find professors then (assigned in the university(s) of that scholarship) who are specialized & willing to work with me in that kind of research? Or should I only stick to the first scheme of applying to universities?
  23. Hi everyone! I'm new to the forum and this is my first post. I graduated from college in May and I'm seriously considering getting an SLP master's. I'm working right now to save money, but, according to my calculations, the closest program to me (University of Washington) would force me to rack up 40k+ of debt. I would prefer to limit my debt to 20k if possible, especially since I would love to work in a high-need public school district that isn't necessarily the best paying. Here's a bit more about me: graduated in May from Yale University with a BA in linguistics (so I'd need to do a post-bac for most schools) college GPA is 3.93, magna cum laude, phi beta kappa (okay I'll stop with the Greek and Latin now) resident of Washington state haven't taken the GRE yet currently working as a paraeducator in a public school in a self-contained special education classroom would love to work in public schools somewhere in the western half of the US (or Canada if I could somehow get a visa) have a special interest in AAC (from my experiences working with kids on AAC devices, PECS, etc.) and autism am definitely not looking to start school full-time until at least 2018-19, if not later I've been looking at schools in the Western Regional Graduate Program, because they offer in-state tuition to Washington residents and most of the schools in Washington have pretty high in-state tuition compared to those in states like Utah and Idaho. I've focused on Utah State University because the school: offers an online post-bac (which would allow me to keep working during the day and earning money) lets Washington state residents pay in-state tuition has a low cost of living (very low when compared to Seattle) seems to be in a beautiful area of the country (other than air pollution, which I can live with) has various grants, assistantships, and scholarships listed on their website-- I'm especially interested in the URLEND-Autism program which has a $7500 stipend seems to be reasonably reputable (good enough to be employed in public schools) I also looked at University of Utah, but it seemed to be somewhat more expensive and listed less funding sources. I bet people will ask, so no, I'm not Mormon, and I'm pretty liberal politically, but I've had lots of Mormon friends and don't think Utah would be too challenging in that respect. I'd love to hear from you if you have experience with USU, know about potential funding/loan forgiveness programs I might qualify for, or generally have any advice for me. Thank you!
  24. Hi everyone. I am a prospective applicant for MA philosophy at York University for fall next year 2018. The admission window would soon be open for 2018. Please, what is the possibility of getting full funding for grad study at York, as is stated on their website? Thanks guys!
  25. I've heard that applying mid year to Australian unis (for the semester that starts in late July, early August) is a bad idea, both for your chances of getting in and for getting a scholarship. Is there any truth to this?
