Crazy. They had the same thing at my old high school in sophomore year in NJ. It was a 90 minute class with no breaks! I kind of miss that class though.



Quoting FX772LRF (Reply 47):
Mine is 92 minutes

Here in Miami some schools have what is called block scheduling and even though there are 8 periods you only go to 4 each day so we also have the dreaded 90 minute classes. Except the third period. If you have the first lunch then its only a half hour and then another 55 minutes when you return.

I don't mind you asking. I am currently the Director of Health Promotion at a university. This requires I know health education/public health and also higher education. My first Masters degree is Health Education. The first doctorate is Higher Education Administration. These two bring together the better parts of the work I do. The Doctorate degree is not required for my role - I am doing it for me. No promotion, no raise, just advanced learning that helps be perform better in my role.

As for future study - the second doctorate is really about the idea that I have high level research I want to do so why not earn a degree since I plan to do the research anyway.

The MPA program is like an MBA for those that don't want to work in corporate settings, and since I don't plan to leave higher education as a work setting, having some additional training in finance, and other administrative areas will compliment the Higher Education Administration degree (which has little formal work in finance surprisingly).

I really like education (can you tell?). Thus I will probably always be taking classes or working on a degree. I did 30 credits in another PhD program, not for the degree, but because I thought there was more I could learn (and I did learn).

This also helps with the teaching I do. While being a full-time administrator, I also teach one college course per term (this term it's Urban Health Systems and Institutions).

As for your plans to earn a doctorate - choose carefully. Many people start programs and never finish. In my program only about one third will earn the degree - mostly because they didn't truly understand the level of work, dedication, time, and personal sacrifice required to complete. It's not easy - but it can be very rewarding. Of course, I am strongly intrinsically motivated.

Always happy to help with education questions and suggestions (at least for US institutions).

Currently studying for BA (Hons) Geography at the University of Sheffield, which means human geography (development, health, culture, geopolitics etc). Quite honestly, I'm tired of education and the course I'm doing and I'm exactly half way through it... I have 5 exams over the next 3 weeks, so I'll see how I do and make a decision based on this year. I'm probably going to see it out (even if it means a crap grade at the end) and then try my luck at applying to NATS after 2011.

See it out. You do reach a bit of a lull in the middle and it can be hard to muster the enthusiasm to see why you should keep going, but you might as well. Try your best at these exams, and see how it's going, but remember to make your student debt worth it - leaving with no degree and still having debt is probably a worse prospect than slogging it out for the last year and a half, unless you're really unhappy.

I'm currently studying at the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF).

I'm pursuing my PhD in craniofacial embryology.

My research deals with the effects of hypoxia (low oxygen levels) on craniofacial development in chick embryos, and I want to know why my hypoxic chick embryos come out with craniofacial deformities and brain defects. Somehow the lack of oxygen is acting on the cellular and molecular level to cause these anomalies.

I'm speaking at a seminar in New Zealand April 1, because the University of Otago invited me to.

I'm in the field of craniofacial embryology because of my own life experience with Treacher Collins syndrome (a rare genetic disorder of craniofacial development).

Today's the start of my last semester at NYU. I'm an undergrad with a planned BA in Politics, with a minor in European Studies. I'm going part-time this semester, got enough credits to take it easy. Right now I'm taking:

"Topics: Counterterrorism" (I tell my friends it's 24: The Class, but I'm sure there's going to be plenty of game theory in the curriculum... the Politics department here can't get enough of it)
"Health and Nutrition" (taken with my New Year's resolution of running a marathon in mind)

Got to say, I'll miss living in Manhattan but I won't be missing the NYU experience. Too big a school, too expensive, the academics here are honestly lackluster for the price of admission (my biggest gripe is the class sizes... even upper level elective courses for my major rarely have less than 120 students). NYU's big selling point is being able to live in New York City for four years before you have to enter the real world. They know it, they'll make you pay dearly for the privilege! Of course, I'm just a politics major. If you're getting a degree in the performing arts, studio art, business, etc., NYU is definitely a Tier One School and worth the money you throw down.

After this spring, I have no plans for graduate school anytime soon. Instead, I've got an upcoming job as a Foreign Service Officer with the Department of State. Fortunately, this means I'm still a student for a while as I take the department's A-100 course for all new FSOs. After that, I'll probably be learning a new language. Grad school can come after, I've got my dream job today! Big grin

I took a class at NYU in Tisch in summer 2007 and honestly I didn't really like it. The professor was good, but it was overrated and its amazing how smug they are about how great the school is. I remember my professor said a few times "remember people, you're attending the best film school in the world right now" and I was thinking..."yeah right! But we also have WAY more fun at a place like LMU and in LA." It really is an escape for young adults to live in New York before actually settling down in the real world or AKA: not live in manhattan. I'm also amazed how many people from NJ and CT attend NYU. It's almost like they pay extra special attention to kids who are applying in the tri-state area. But an NYU degree looks impressive to just about anyone so you're probably set as in finding work after college. Tisch kids always get hired in the entertainment industry or at least score fantastic internships.

I guess I'm also biased because I don't really like NYC to begin with even though I grew up in the metro area.

I took summer classes at Stern last summer and loved NYU and Manhattan as always, but how anyone could attend school there at the undergraduate level(includes Columbia, Barnard, Pace, Fordham etc.) is beyond me. There just seems to be too many great distractions in a city that's generally unfriendly to student budgets. That said, I think Manhattan offers an element of reality that seems quite removed from me (and others) on very idyllic, green, and picturesque campuses that can seem removed from much of the world.

I am a junior at NYU, although I am spending this year as an exchange student at Humboldt University in Berlin.

Now for the pretentious sounding bit:

I am at the Gallatin School, which is designed to go between all the different NYU schools and create your own concentration (there are no majors, although there are minors). My concentration is called "The Imagined Line" and focuses on international borders. More specifically, international business, politics and perceptions of international borders, and how they impact our everyday lives. I am minoring in German.

I have a love/hate relationship with NYU, which seems to be the general sentiment about the school. We pay a lot of money, and the school tends to run as a business, seeing students merely as a paycheque. On the plus side, NYC is a fantastic place to live, and the departments I have taken classes from are top notch. The Stern School of Business is cutthroat though. That place is a pressure cooker. Taking classes there is just stressful.

Lets just hope that the degree translates into jobs, because otherwise that is about $400000 wasted.

Lets just hope that the degree translates into jobs, because otherwise that is about $400000 wasted.

Is that $400000 as in just under half a million USD?

Ya I am wondering where that number came from? Most of the top tier schools charge around 52K a year, the most expensive maybe around 56. Even 56*4=224,000 not 400,000.

I guess that is scholarship+living costs? We have free scholarship, but I estimate the yearly cost of about 3000-4000€ to my parents anyway.

I'm about to start my third year (in March, our summer holidays at the moment down here) of Bachelor of Commerce majoring in Accounting and Finance, then later most likely a graduate diploma in Commercial Law at Auckland University.

A lot of you sound like you're doing much more interesting things than me!

Well I'll be at Auckland this March too, but as a first year with a conjoint in BCom Economics and Finance and a BA French and Spanish. I'll be happy to start after a double gap year.

I'm anxious to see how the Auckland university experience is.

Wow..thats one expensive course! My whole course (4 year med + hospital placements, internship) is around $45,000 and that is the most expensive course at university. I had no idea someone would spend close to half a million bucks on education!

I've never looked, but I'd be willing to bet that medical school in the US might cost $45,000 per year, let alone the whole thing.

Might see you around then! If you don't like accounting, you might be a bit annoyed at the extra accounting papers you'll need for finance. Oh, and maths. Auckland Uni doesn't seem to have a culture at all in comparison to US, or even Otago. But the facilities are pretty good if you manage to get classes in the new business school. There are the odd bad lecturers too. Feel free to PM me or anything if you need help or something!
It's all about the destination AND the journey.

For international students the fee is around $250,000, its the same case here too..internationals pay $200,000 for the course. Local students pay $9000 a year, so it works out cheaper for us compared to international students here in Oz. I think its the same case in the US.
At Harvard Medical School for example:

An estimate of yearly expenses shows that the average cost for an unmarried first-year student will be approximately $66,600 for the 10.5-month academic year 2009-2010. This estimate includes tuition, health service fee and insurance premium, room and board, books, travel, transportation to clinical sites, laundry, and incidentals. Students whose homes are outside the northeast region of the United States may experience travel costs beyond the scope of this estimate.

Tuition fees are $43,000 p.a...
