Hi y'all! I was just accepted into TC for their Psych in Education (clinical psych) program. Columbia has been my dream school for so long, and I am so thrilled about this decision! I have a few other offers, but highly considering TC for grad school. I personally want to get my Ph.D. in Clinical Psych, and am looking for a combo of both research and clinical experiences in grad school. I also live in California and as a WOC, diversity is a big thing for me. I'm also really nervous about the tuition of attending because I'm already in debt from my undergrad. For those who are familiar with the program, or are/have been students in the program, could you please provide some insight as to the pros and cons about going there? Any info would be much appreciated! Thanks so much!
To anyone who T.A.'s, teaches, or took a gap year and taught high school in between, I have a few questions. I'm taking a gap year between my MA and my PhD and hoping to teach high school in the interim and I have my first teaching interview tomorrow. To anyone out there who knows the process -- I've interviewed for a lot of things but figure that this one will be a quite different set of questions -- what should I prepare or be prepared to answer in an interview for a job teaching AP English to high school (charter school) students? i.e., do I need to have a lesson prepared, a statement of teaching philosophy -- and if so what are some important parts of a statement of teaching philosophy -- or are there any questions that always come up that are specific to these kinds of interviews? Don't want this one to be lost as a learning experience since it's a great opportunity and I think it would be a great fit, but want to make sure I'm as prepared as possible and thought it might be helpful to get feedback rather than looking around on the internet to gauge how these things really go and what to expect from the academic standpoint of people who are experienced with this.
Hi guys, I am strongly considering applying to NYU and Teachers College as well as Hunter College for Childhood Education/Special Education at the childhood level (dual). I understand that all programs are very reputable, however I am having a very tough time deciding on whether or not I want to have the burden of loans when I know I can get a cheaper education at a State school. I graduated from Cornell University with a BS in Human Development and I want to be sure that I give myself the best possible education. My question is, for all of the loans (40K+) do you think its worth it to enroll at an NYU or a Columbia? to then become a teacher (part of me says yes - because of the reputation and name and part of my says no - because of the financial risk). Your feedback will really help me! Thanks!
