Over the break, I’ve been looking deeper into the admissions process and requirements for the following schools:
Drake University (Des Moines, Iowa) – Master of Science in Leadership Development, Student Services Concentration
Kansas State University (Manhattan, Kansas) – Master of Science in College Student Development, Administration Option
Missouri State University (Springfield, Missouri) – Master of Science in Student Affairs Administration
Texas Tech University (Lubbock, Texas) – Master of Education in Higher Education
University of Arkansas (Fayetteville, Arkansas) – Master of Education in Higher Education
University of Georgia (Athens, Georgia) – Master of Education in College Student Affairs Administration
University of Michigan (Ann Arbor, Michigan)- Master of Arts in Higher Education
University of Wisconsin – LaCrosse (LaCrosse, Wisconsin) – Master of Science in Student Affairs Administration.
I had a few other schools listed on here before but I did some thinking and I decided that I only want to look into the schools that I can seriously see myself attending.
I chose to research these schools looking for the following:
Diverse Universities and Cities
Theory or Administration Options
No Thesis Exit Requirement
2 In-State Options
Currently I am looking at each of these schools and comparing admissions requirements such as GPA, GRE scores, deadlines, application fees, and how far they are from home.
Any advice about any of the above schools, cities or programs from those that are in current attendance or whom have graduate from these programs would be greatly appreciated.
I am hoping to narrow these down to my top 5 before the summer of 2016 and then apply to my top 3 by the end of December 2016.
