Asian Studies Masters

T-minus 12 days.

Posted by Fell4Ever, 03 August 2012 · 2,334 views

This might just be my last blog post here on The Grad Cafe, and it is an exciting turn of events. How I went from a 'decaf' lurker to a Master's Student is certainly a trek I will not soon forget. I still wake up some days just wondering how I got into such a great program when everyone just seemed to out-qualify me, but there are those days w...

Its all about to START soon.

I leave for Vancouver Canada on August 15th, 2012 at around 7:20 AM from Newark Liberty International Airport and land at around 10:30 AM local time. August cannot come soon enough. Everything is falling in place, and the more I get done, the longer each day becomes. Its just like how it was when I was six and it was 3 days from Christmas... the waiting g...

So now that I've been accepted into both the schools I applied for (Still in shock), its time for me to figure everything else out - like how to get to school, how to pay for school, etc. I went to a Seton Hall "Meet the Dean and Faculty" meeting, which was a big mistake. Since the beginning I was pretty set on going to UBC, but this meeting g...

acceptance, got in and 6 more...
I. Did. It~ I am officially done with the application period for 2012! Summary : I initially set off with the idea of applying to about 5-6 schools, but once I realized that application fees were around $100 each, I backed off fast. And then when I found TheGradCafe  things just got worse. I saw the pure competitive nature of getting into on of t...

Done Applying. Not Done Worrying.

This post is going to be as much for me as it is for anyone who read this. I'm getting so close to the final decision point: And. I. Am. Going. Insane.  Let's go full circle with my craziness:I have officially been accepted for the Masters in Asian Studies at Seton Hall University - one of the two schools I've applied for. They have rolling a...

So much Progress

My applications are complete! Kind of...UBC has everything submitted, but their website says I am missing a few things. Its lying though. At least I think it is haha.Seton Hall has ALMOSt everything completed. One of my professors didn't submit his Letter of Rec to this school. Why JUST this school I have no idea. Maybe beacuse it was burried in h...

first school, first application
Greetings from rainy and cold Tokyo~I'm definitely a little byouki (病気)(sick) right now, so I decided to take the night off, stay in, and work on some applications/be lazy. I officially sent in my first graduate school application to... Seton Hall's Whitehead School of Diplomacy!!! I am applying for a Joint Masters in Asian Studies and...

Do I even want to go to Grad School?

";akljdf;aksjdf;laksjdf" would do a really good job at summarizing how I feel right now. Now that I have my GRE scores, I've really been thinking about if I really even want to Graduate School. Its not that my scores were bad ( 161/155/5.0 ), but its just my way of going about them. I was hoping that my scores would either be "Super Awesom...

Ugh... I did pretty well at first, this application season. I managed to get my three professors to agree to write me Letters of Recs this summer for one thing, and then I even took my GRE in August. (It is totally killing me that I do not have my scores yet. If I knew they were low, I could just stop and give up haha!) But now that the only things I...

Procrastination: My Enemy

Introduction  Nice to meet you ^_^ I am currently an Asian Studies undergrad at an American university in Tokyo, Japan. This semester will be my last and I will graduating in December, and will afterwards return to my home in New Jersey, USA. I love school (the discussions more than the homework) and it was never a question of whether or not I would atten...
