@Dann Batoon Hi Dann, thank you for starting the discussion! I am applying for the intercultural communication program MSEd this year, still anxiously waiting for the result to come out. Which program did you apply?

Hi Derler! 😃 I applied for the International Educational Development Program. I am also waiting for my results. I still have two to three weeks to wait for it.

Hi again, Derler! Don't be anxious. Attend webinars and ask your program coordinator about your program for preparation. The members of the Penn GSE community are approachable. And they explain inquiries clearly.

@Dann Batoon What an excitement, right after I replied to your last message I received the offer! 😁

I always forget to quote. 😆 I sent my greetings earlier. Do you think I need to establish my LinkedIn account? I am wary of my privacy. Please share some tips, Derler. Thank you! 😊

About making a Linkedin? I've had it for a while (since 2012, I think?) , and I'm pretty open about my online presence in general. I just like having all my professional credentials in one, easy-to-reference place. But that's just me.

I sent in all my applications from January 5th - 15th.

I am still in college. And when I interned and volunteered in the last few terms, I just sent my resume. I will sort out what I did so I can present it online. 
I completed my application on February 21 this year. I waited for WES to evaluate my credentials. And it was faster than I expected. 
There is another public discussion for Penn GSE TESOL. I think they need an update from you, Pat. 
Thank you for replying! Oh wait, can I call you, Pat?

Here is the link. People asked about TESOL last week. 🙂

Hey Dann,

I applied before the priority deadline for my program which was Feb 1. As for LinkedIn, I do have an account but it’s not that up to date, for me I am not yet really on that website since I have just graduated from college and LinkedIn seems to me is more of a career/job oriented platform. However if you want to start looking for professional connections it might be a good place to start.

Hi, Derler! So, you also just graduated from college. Me too! I mean, I will graduate this August. I hope my university will not delay it because of class suspensions due to COVID-19. Although, I will ask my research mentor if I can get my grade earlier so I can give my full credentials right away.

May I ask what you did in college? Did you take up the GRE or the GMAT? Thank you!

@Dann Yes I was a double major in sociology and linguistics. Not sure what you meant by what I did in college, do you mean like research or internship? And yeah I took GRE, but this specific program I applied in pennGSE didn’t require GRE. Hope that answers your question :)

Patricia is fine :) 

Yeah, your Linkedin profile isn't really too different from your resume; there are a few additional features where you can upload links to writing samples and portfolio items. I think more people use it for networking/article sharing (though to be honest, I don't do much of either, ha).

Will crosspost there!
