  1. So I applied to Columbia Teacher's College School Psychology PhD program in November, and I was wondering if competitive applicants are contacted for interviews? I applied in November and have not heard a word yet. I think that the interview process varies per department (not all programs require an interview at TC), so I was wondering if anyone had any experience specifically with the school psychology program. Also, there's a chance that I may have seriously fucked up... I remember submitting a Resume but not a CV (I don't think that Teachers College required a CV, which I found surprising, but I could have possibly overlooked or misunderstood that in the application). Did other people applying to TC submit a CV? anyone remember if it was required? I may have f*cked up, but there's always next year (I only applied to two programs lol) although a gap year or two between grad and undergrad wouldn't be the worst.
  2. Hey everyone! So I went to TC's open house yesterday and just wanted to hear from other people who attended. What did you guys think? Hated it? Loved it? Are you going to attend?
  3. I am extremely grateful to be accepted into both these schools, however, I now need to make a decision! I need to choose between the MA in Teaching of English at TC Columbia, or the STEP program with a focus in Teaching of English at the Stanford GSE. Both programs are one year in length - with Stanford beginning this Summer, and TC beginning this Fall. I am a qualified teacher from Australia. The STEP program will provide me with a teaching credential in California, whereas the MA from TC is non cert. At this stage, I am undecided about what I will do after I complete the one year program (whether to return to Australia or go elsewhere). Stanford is looking like it will be around 20k cheaper based on tuition - please correct me if I'm wrong (I am yet to hear back from TC regarding financial aid). Any advice would be greatly appreciated!
  4. Hi everyone! I just recently decided that I will be attending Teachers College, Columbia University in the fall to begin my M.S. in Communication Sciences & Disorders. I just made a youtube channel where I have posted reactions to my admissions decisions and a video about why I chose TC. This channel will be a "lookbook" of my life throughout graduate school. Please like, comment, and subscribe!! https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCMIgNkX2Gz5UiNqXpH7Yw9Q
  5. 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!
  6. Hey guys, I'm wondering if anyone at TC, Columbia is enrolled part time and decided against being a full time student, and vice versa. Trying to figure out what would be best.....You'd be done in a year if you did full time but my main concern is rushing through everything. Anything would be helpful, thanks so much!!
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
  9. Hi everyone! Does anyone have any insight into any of these schools specifically for their CSD programs? I am an out of field applicant and still need to complete most of the prereqs. I know TC and Emerson both have summer programs to complete them. I most likely want to work in a school, early intervention, or a private practice with kids. All of these schools would end up being about the same cost, with Emerson a bit cheaper but not by much. Let me know if you have any insights, or just if you've been accepted and may be attending 😊 I'm so excited to meet everyone!
  10. Hi everyone, I have received an offer from Teachers College Columbia for their EdM in Psychological Counseling, along with an offer from NYU for an MA in Counseling for Mental Health and Wellness. Keeping the cost aside, how do these two programs compare to each other?
  11. I'm considering Teacher's College! Does anyone attending TC want to talk about it with me? Please message me if possible!
  12. Hey guys, I was wondering about who has applied to bachelor of education or teaching programs in Ontario! I have some questions: Which schools have you applied to? For what age concentration? What are your teachables? What was your GPA? What relevant experience did you have? I've applied to OISE, UOIT, and York for intermediate/senior. My teachables are biology & social science. I had a ~4.0 GPA in my last 2 years. I worked in a local high school for the past 2 years.
  13. Hey, I am wondering who else has applied to the MT program at OISE! What concentration did you apply for, what teachable(s), and what did your application look like? I applied to intermediate/senior for biology & social science. I had volunteer experience in a high school and ~4.0 GPA average in my last two years.
  14. Hi all - I'm not sure if I'm posting this to the right forum because I've never posted before... I was just accepted to the psych. in education (clinical psych.) MA program at Teacher's college at Columbia U. I have heard mixed reviews on this program and wondered if anyone here could share opinions - especially if you are at Columbia right now! Thanks!
  15. Hello, I was wondering if anyone is in the specialist degree programs for school psychology at Teachers College, Fordham, or St. Johns, or the PsyD program for school-community psychology at Hofstra? Would you be able to give me some information about the programs? Thank you!!
  16. I'm trying to finish up my application for Columbia's CSD program and do not know how to format my optional essay. I know I need to discuss my GRE scores (below par) but focus on how my GPA is great and I have a lot of volunteer/work/professional experiences. Should this be a blunt statement? Or should it be put in a nicer way like every other personal statement? Applying to: Columbia, UVA, UNC, Vanderbilt, Pitt, BU, MGH, Kean, NYU
  17. Hi! I hope everyone's doing well! I recently came across Instructional Technology and Media at TC, and I wanted to know if someone who is currently in the program or who has graduated from the program could tell me exactly what the program focuses on. My impression (based off of the name and the catalog for the Math, Science, & Technology Department) is that it focuses on technologies and media that complements instruction, like videos, simulations, and games. But, there's also a degree for designing and developing digital games at TC, so I'm confused. Any clarification would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!
  18. I was recently admitted to the Master of Education Program in Economics and Education at Teachers College. I just finished my M.A in higher education administration, and I have gradually developed interest in educational measurement and statistics. My original plan was to finish my Optional Practical Training period (I'm an international student), then apply for a doctoral degree in educational measurement. A friend of mine applied for doctoral programs in educational measurement this year, was only admitted to Master's program due to her lack of statistical training. I have very similar background, so I am concern that I may be admitted to a master's program as well. So I have to think seriously about this EdM. This EdM requires 60 credits, and is merely 15 credits less than its doctoral program. But I understand, doctoral programs at Teachers College must be extremely competitive. I still hope to be admitted to its PhD program, after I complete this EdM. If anyone has any knowledge of the competitiveness of teachers college's doctoral program, please reply. I greatly appreciate your opinions and times.

  20. I am in between two schools for masters in psychology, Hunter College and Teachers College Columbia. What is the overall reputation of these schools? Would Teachers College give me more of an advantage than Hunter? I have heard mixed reviews from current students from both schools which worries me. I feel outside NY, Hunter's name isn't as recognizable as Columbia. However, Hunter seems to offer more opportunities for research. Any advice helps! Thank you!
  21. Just got accepted into Hunter and Teachers College for MA in psychology! In your opinion what program is better? I have my bachelors in psych but little research experience, hence the desire for a masters. My overall goal is to be a clinical psychologist focusing on neuropsych. Both schools are great but I've heard mixed reviews about both programs. Anything helps thank you!!
  22. I'm trying to decide between these two schools for a masters in Communicative Sciences and Disorders. I visited Teachers College and was very impressed by their overall program curriculum, their strong commitment to multiculturalism/bilingualism, and how smoothly they integrate the necessary prerequisites into their grad program (I'm an out-of-field applicant). However, it seems that their facilities were slightly outdated, and their research focus may not be as strong or as broad as NYU's? I wasn't able to attend NYU's admitted students day, so I haven't gotten to speak with any current grad students or faculty members, tour their facilities, or get a sense of the overall "vibe" of the program. I'm also concerned that NYU might not be the best choice for an out-of-field applicant such as myself... this is the first year they're integrating the prerequisites into their grad program, and all of those prereqs will be offered as online courses instead of in-person. Anybody else in a similar situation? Or has anybody visited both schools... in your opinion, what were the pros/cons of each? Thanks in advance!
  23. Penn GSE (Teaching, Learning and Leadership) vs UMich School of Education (Teaching and Learning) vs HGSE (Learning and Teaching) vs Teachers College (Curriculum and Teaching) All are 1 year programs. Suggestions on which one I should opt for?
  24. Can anyone speak to either of these programs? Better yet, can anyone tell me how Computing in Education at TC is viewed, in comparison to Instructional Technology & Media?
  25. Hi all, Thanks in advance for your input. I could really use it! I've been accepted to the following schools for the Master of Public Policy. I intend to study education policy. UVA (with sizable scholarship) Berkeley (no scholarship) Columbia (1/4 scholarship) Duke (about 1/2 scholarship) UChicago (about 1/4 scholarship, but could change) Michigan (about 1/3 scholarship, but could change) Carnegie Mellon (about 3/4 scholarship) Vanderbilt (very small scholarship) I was also waitlisted at HKS. Because of financial concerns, I'm prioritizing UVA, Duke, UChicago, Michigan, and Carnegie Mellon. However, Berkeley's got such a wonderful reputation... What are your thoughts?
