HGSE 2024


Recommended Posts

Hello everyone! I applied last year and was sadly waitlisted. But planning to apply again this upcoming year, and I would love to connect with others applying to HGSE for Fall 2024! ūüôā¬†

I copied what I used last year to start the thread (thank you SO MUCH to @TabTurbo for doing this originally!), and have tried to update it:

Hi! I will be starting at HGSE in the fall...I still pinch myself to make sure it is real. I will try and share things from my year at HGSE here in the chat, to hopefully help everyone applying this year. Good luck!

Thank you @Jo-E for being willing to help all of us out applying/re-applying. Can I message you a question?

Hi everyone! I'm a recent grad of the ELOE program (just graduated last month). This group was so helpful to me when I was applying, even if I was mostly a lurker. Please feel free to message me if anyone has any questions about HGSE in general or the ELOE program in particular. :) Wishing you all good luck as you apply!

¬†I feel weird bumping my own post, but I am eager to connect with any others applicants to HGSE that are out there!¬†ūüôā¬†

Previous years people have posted their stats (huge thanks to @graciasadios and @mjsmith for taking all of the previous years data from folks and compiling it). Wanted to share a bit about me again using the template I got from @DogeCoin the last go around.

Program/Concentration: ELOE/No concertation......though I am toying with adding the Early Childhood Education concentration. 
GRE: Have not taken, but might if it would boost my chances. I have been out of school a while, and I'm intimidated by this to be honest. Would love feedback here if any current students/alumni have any thoughts or suggestions.
Work experience: 10 years as an elementary school teacher in the U.S. I've mostly been a 2nd grade teacher, but have taught everything K-3rd grade
Undergrad: BA in Elementary Education
Undergrad GPA: 3.3
Research: None for me. I do wonder if this hurt my chances last year. 
LORs: 1 from a professor from my undergrad that I have kept in touch with, 1 from my principal, 1 from the assistant superintendent. The last one is a different recommender than my previous application last cycle.
Other info:¬†If I get in, I would be long distance from my husband for the year. If anyone else has done this, or would be in a similar boat I would love to connect!¬†ūüôā

Welcome @hgse_4mepls! I'd absolutely love to keep in touch. ūüôā¬†What program are you thinking about applying to?

Thank you!
I want to apply to the online program.

I also contacted them, and based on what they said, I think I will wait until next year before applying so that I can accumulate one more year of full-time experience.

Any thoughts on what I can do to improve my profile?

While I can only comment as a fellow applicant, your profile looks VERY impressive to me! I would think HGSE would be quite interested in you. I think just being your authentic self and explaining "Why HGSE?" "Why this program?" and "Why now?" would be what HGSE would want to hear from you. Hoping that an alum or current student can confirm this. :)

Happy to be on this journey with you!

Thank you so much for the positivity and the encouragement!

I think that I can provide some pretty convincing reasons for the three Why's. 

Good luck to you! Let's stay in touch - even though I'm applying next cycle!

Hi everyone,

I am excited to be applying to HGSE's HDE program this cycle! I'm an international applicant and would love to connect to current students/alum about their experience/tips with the program/community. To everyone applying this cycle, wishing us good luck and strength throughout the application process!!!
