@bkchi: I applied my senior year of college to NYU and Columbia and was rejected from both.  I was so sad at the time, but now I’m glad I didn’t go.  I already owed $60K in student loans coming out of undergrad and those schools would have been $40K a year on top of that.  So I hear you on the financial thing.

Do they have your program at any of the CUNY schools?  I’m currently finishing up my master’s in corporate communications at Baruch College.  It costs me $1800/semester which I pay out of pocket.  It’s been well worth it to me to not go into further debt.  I work full time and go at night — two classes a week.

My BFF was just accepted as well to the Steinhardt school at NYU and decided not to go bc of costs… she was looking into the accelerated education masters which was a year program and you got your teaching experience… I know there were other schools that offered similar programs like columbia (just as expensive I know) and manhattan college maybe queens college too… sorry I’m drawing a blank! I’ll ask her and get back to you. what are you going for?

Congrats!  I can’t speak to Steinhardt specifically, but both Fiance and I have grad degrees from NYU and have nothing but positive things to say about the institution.  The extra tuition was more than worth it to work with school’s faculty in my discipline/his profession.

I have friends who went through masters programs at Steinhardt and their experiences aren’t the most glowing, particularly for the 80k/year debt they took on for their degrees. The debt can be crippling to future life plans when you start getting 50k+ (especially if the target field isn’t a high-paying one). 

It is such a tough decision, so good luck!

hi bkchi!!!

i was actually also worrying about the same thing as you are… i was also accepted to steinhardt this year (early childhood education) and the expensive tuition is such a financial burden but i decided to still go through with it because their program is really what i want to focus on…. so i really hope it’s worth the money!!!! (fingers crossed) did you decide whether or not you’ll be going? 🙂
