  1. Hi guys! I'm an applicant for the CMHS year 1 program fall 2021 at UPenn GSE. My application was complete on 02/05 and I still haven't received any updates regarding my application, so I'm getting really nervous. I know this may be a long shot, but does anyone who submitted their application in early February hear back from the program?

  3. Does anyone know if Penn GSE has sent out emails for interviews? I applied for the PhD in Education Policy program and haven't heard anything yet. Thanks!
  4. Hi everyone! Just throwing some thoughts out into the void, seeing if anyone else is waiting on Penn GSE Higher Education master's decisions. I'm a little confused if we should expect to wait 4-6 weeks after the priority deadline (February 15) or not. It seems like last year some people heard back starting the last week of February, a year to the day (gulp!) Anyone have thoughts?

  6. Someone helps me! I am so hesitating! I will list pros and cons of these two programs and plz vote! 1. Columbia University Teachers College Applied Statistics pro: It's location is the best. CU is my dream school. con: TC is so independent and I am afraid of being questioned as a student of CU. Also this program is often being criticized. 2. UPenn GSE SMART(Statistics, Measurement, Assessment, and Research Technology) pro: GSE is better than TC. con: Location is not as good as NY(for me). Please share your opinions!

  9. Okay, So I'm applying for UPenn GSE. In order to apply, I have to get a course-by-course evaluation for my study abroad transcript from a service provider on the NACES list. So I pour over the list, each one of the companies, and finally decide to go with WES. 1. HGSE also recommends WES for similar situations (if offered admission) 2. Penn GSE themselves supports them through NACES. 3. They're website looks legit (except the fact that you have to pay to even talk to them-- that was a red flag, but some legit companies do that) All of that equals pretty reputable service to me. Sooooo... I pay for the service, a whomping $249; then find an extraneous charge for 2 extra services: 1 extra report + shipping to be sent to my house (not something I selected in checkout); learn that sending reports to personal addresses violates their policy (like they violated their OWN policy!); email specific questions; get generic answers; call three times; get a recording that says WES isn't taking calls from individual applicants AT ALL, and tells you to write an email (like wtf); I call again, and connect through to the business line to see if they're taking business calls; they do; I leave a message and contact info (hoping for something); nothing- no response. Oh yeah, and drafted an email in French (which I haven't spoken in years). Then, belatedly, I found this, this, this and more. So after all this I've sent a final two emails, one of which notifies them I will be contacting the BBB if they don't respond promptly, appropriately, and authentically (They are a BBB member). I don't think they're gonna do anything. My one last hope is calling this number or someone from this list of U.S. representatives (it's really indirect, but I mean what else is there to do). After that I'm lost. Like I have no idea what to do. The list of NACES service providers was exhaustive, but I couldn't find anyone I could trust more than WES, and this is what happened. Has anyone ever successfully, and happily (considering the circumstances) used a course-by-course evaluation services from one of the companies on the NACES list? Is anyone applying to / already applied to Penn GSE for a M.S.Ed who also has to do an evaluation like this? Any insight would be super appreciated. I'm at the end of my rope here. Thanks in advance!
