  2. I also emailed a private practice near my university to volunteer! They ended up letting me observe a lot for an entire summer and ended up giving me a job as well! Before them, I had emailed nursing homes to see if they needed volunteers and in exchange I could shadow. I didn't end up doing it but some places were down!

    The best leaders are those who encourage feedback from the people whom they lead. Write a response in which you discuss the extent to which you agree or disagree with the statement and explain your reasoning for the position you take. In developing and supporting your position, you should consider ways in which the statement might or might not hold true and explain how these considerations shape your position. A workplace is composed of a leader and the subordinates. The best leaders always allow the subordinates to place their opinions in any stage of the work. A communicative workplace, leader considers opinions of the workers, is necessary for the growth of any workplace. An accommodating leader, allows his subordinates to place their opinions regarding an issue, is the most vital factor in the development of a working body. Sharing of ideas can find out flaws, if any, of a working method and helps to solve the problem so that the institution becomes successful. Moreover, mixing of ideas occur when a leader, ultimately successful, allows his workers to submit their personal views regarding the methodology of a task. It is widely accepted that, a friendly workplace flourishes than a strict one in which a leader never listens to the workers. In case of a bridge construction many problems arises during construction work. A successful chief engineer will arrange a meeting with his junior engineers in which he will place his strategy to face the problem and also allow the juniors to give their feedback in this issue. Undoubtedly this approach will give the junior engineers a feeling that they are also an essential part of this task and their views may help the chief to come into a solution of the arising problem. Likewise, in case of a classroom, if the teacher discusses about the teaching method he follows with the students and allows the students to give some feedback, it will help the teacher to find the shortcomings, if any, of his method and will allow him to find a new and efficient teaching method helpful for the students. However, it may also happen that while giving opinions, the subordinates may not come into a consensus and this may hamper the working environment. Leaders who are the best in their relative fields always listen to the subordinates. New Microsoft Word Document (2).docx

    Medieval Studies ??

    I'm fairly new to grad cafe so sorry if I'm doing this wrong but I need some advice. I'm an aspiring history professor but I only have one language under my belt (French) and know that I definitely need to pick up Latin before applying to Ph.D. programs. I also have an average undergraduate background and would like to improve my chances of getting into a top 30 history Ph.D. program. That being said, I realize that some of the programs I'm applying to will be a reach. I'm looking into getting my MA in either history or medieval studies. I'll detail some of my academic background below Some of my research interests: Medieval and early modern Europe, Women/gender/sexuality (this is the most prominent), Historical theology/church history, historical perceptions of witchcraft and magic, history of literature and culture (specifically Arthurian studies, folklore, and fairytales), female monarchs GPA: 3.58 (with a strong upward trend and a 3.85 history GPA). Other: haven't taken the GRE yet, currently completing an undergraduate honors thesis relevant to what I want to study in graduate school, participated in a study abroad research program which excavated medieval ruins in Italy TLDR: I'm looking into history and medieval studies MA programs and would like feedback if anyone has knowledge about the reputation of these programs or can recommend others. History MAs: -Baylor University -University of Missouri (although the POI I'm looking into doesn't seem to be taking students at the moment) -University of New Mexico -Syracuse -Clemson -Colorado at Boulder -UNC Charlotte -Tufts -Claremont -U Chicago MAPSS (I've heard so many mixed reviews on this program) -St. Andrews (also looking into other UK programs but I'm not sure I can afford it) Medieval Studies: -U Conn -Fordham -Colombia -SMU -St. Andrews
  6. Hello all! I'm currently completing my PhD in Clinical Psychology, and as part of my dissertation, I'm recruiting Chinese Canadian young adults aged 18-25, who are permanent residents or citizens of Canada. My studies consist of a 30-40 minute online survey for a $5 Amazon gift card, and/or a 60-minute interview for $10. I would really appreciate if you could participate, or share with anyone you think might be eligible! Please email ChineseCanadianConflict@gmail.com if you are interested, and the study fliers are attached for more information. On a related note, does anyone have experience recruiting Chinese Canadian young adults? I'm finding the process to be quite difficult, so it's been stressful thinking about how I'm going to recruit everyone that I need. Thank you! ~Qualitative study flyer May21 2019.pdf ~Quantitative study flyer May21 2019.pdf

  8. Hi all, Thanks in advance for helping me out. I am science graduate and hold masters in Mathematics and Economics. An online micro masters in data, economics and developmental policy. I am a trained big data analyst with 1yr of experience in Business Analytics at reputed analytics firm and 2 yr of experience in data based policy analysis with International research institute (International Water Management Institute) as a pre-doctoral fellow. I wish to do PhD from top 20 grad school in US in subject related to deveopmenral economics and public policy. On qualification side. I have GRE score 169/155/3.0 (Q, V, AW) Apart from this I have 1 paper under review for international journal, 1 Book chapter under preparation, 2 papers accepted for an international conference and 2 papers presented for international conference. Have strong recommenders. Most of research work is around policy impact analysis. It will be great if anyone can help me with following things.... 1) Shall I repeat GRE with more preparation or the score is good enough? How important is AW score?? 2) Where can I get help for good SOP? 3) Good University/Departments for PhD in developmental economics or public policy analysis that I shall consider 4) Is my profile considerable for top 10 US universities or shall I downgrade my choices?? I would appreciate any help in this regards... Thanks again

    Weird circumstances regarding Masters admissions?

    If your goal is a PhD then once that's completed that is all anyone will care about. No one will care that prior to that you completed a Master's at an Ivy. You could stick with the program you've committed to and apply for PhD's at Ivy's later if that is important to you.
  10. It's not disrespectful to ask for a deferment, but here are some things to consider: 1) If the program is offering you funding then that may be jeopardized. Not all funding types can just be "reserved" until you're ready and even if they can be it may not be the departments policy to do so. So if the program won't guarantee funding after your deferment then you may be responsible for funding yourself. 2) Even though your advisor is open to students staying an extra year, anything could change for them. They may take a sabbatical, get some other project that makes them less available for advising, get a better offer elsewhere, etc. Yes this could happen without your deferment, but if this happens while you're on deferment then you may be assigned a new advisor prior to starting and have to navigate that. 3) The program may not allow one semester deferments and require full year deferments instead. It is really going to depend on how courses are offered and the timing of other department milestones. A whole year off may or may not work for you.
  11. Hi! Wanted to post on here because I'm just going through the same thing right now. I got accepted to grad school for the fall semester with a 3.85 GPA and A's in the CD courses. However, this last semester I have the possibility of receiving a C in a 4 unit elective course, so it's not a cd class but I'm still very worried that this will jeopardize my acceptance when I have to send in the final transcript of grades. I hope that they'll see that I've done well in the cd classes and this was just one course not pertaining to the major but I'm still super nervous.

    GRE Scores: To re-take or to not re-take

    Your scores really aren't awful! However, I'd definitely also recommend checking EdFind to see the average stats for the four schools you're applying to, and if quantitative averages are all higher than your score, perhaps consider retaking or widening your net of schools you're applying to. (Just for reference, all the schools I applied to, which I believe were pretty average in terms of competitiveness, had average quantitatives ranging from 145-150.) That being said, a lot of cutoffs I've seen have been for a 300+ combined score from quantitative and verbal, so you've got that! Your GPA is good and if other parts of your application (resume, essay) are competitive, then you probably don't need to retake it. But definitely factor in the schools - if they're all super competitive, then you might need to bring the score up.

    HGSE Acceptance Rate By Program

    Increasingly, the kind of information you're looking for is becoming hard to find. Stanford, for example, is releasing less of this information, because the numbers are so grim. It's not good for business (or equity) for students to get the feeling that almost no one gets in. I did the Master's program at HGSE, and I would say there were a ton of Ed. Policy students. I heard that during my year, many of the PhD applicants who were denied and pushed to a Master's elected for Ed. Policy. That would make things more competitive. I don't think you're going to find anything official, unfortunately. I don't know you, but the advice I've been given was just to put together the absolute best application package you can, and apply to 3-5 programs. Just my two cents. Best of luck.
  16. Depending on the schools you plan on applying to, a 142 may not be enough to get past the paper screening. (Two of the schools I applied to required a minimum of 145 in both Q and V) So check the admission requirements for the four schools that you're applying to to decide whether or not your need to retake the GRE to reach that cutoff if you have one. I would recommend you go to the ASHA EDFIND to find the average GRE scores and GPA admitted to the four schools you're applying to. You can find it here https://www.asha.org/edfind/ to compare your stats to admitted students in the program. Your V is pretty good, and depending on your AW I would suggest that you not take the GRE again (Especially with a GPA as high as yours)
  17. It probably would be up to the program and not specifically your advisor. All you can do is ask. They either say yes or no.
  18. Oh that’s a good point, I’m interested in working in a medical setting so perhaps should’ve noted that in my field placement form too... Oh well, I’ll plan to just discuss with my advisor! And did you just create your email? I created mine in late April and didn’t receive anything for the longest time. But I’ve since received a few already, one from my field advisor last Monday, then 2 earlier this week.
  19. Glad this helped!! Yea, it definitely wasn’t clear to me why the 3 digit course codes I was originally entering wasn’t yielding results... wish they made it more clear! And I’ve heard good things about Katz, Henry, and Lawrence! I’m taking a class with Katz as well (on Tuesdays at 2pm I think), so maybe we’re in the same one!

    Not a grad student but want to be one some day

    If you're sure grad school is your goal: Start looking at programs now, and be realistic! Make a spreadsheet of admission requirements and application dates. Schedule your GRE early so you have time to retake it if you need to. For sure, use your final year and work hard to get your cumulative and major gpa past 3.0! For better or worse, scores matter, and you have to make the cutoff even if you don't apply right away. Because you probably won't be able to hit a 3.5 in time, which is the benchmark for a majority of big programs, you need to make up for it in the rest of your application. Do your programs have a senior thesis? Not sure about psychology, but in fields like neuroscience the research experience and lab time are probably the most important part of an application. Look for opportunities, no matter how small. Data entry is better than nothing! Talk to a career advisor or a professor you trust about wanting to go to grad school, and figure out a plan for how to get in shape academically. Get some real honest advice, and be real with yourself about how much work its going to take. Seriously consider other options: grad school is competitive, and you don't want to get caught out with nowhere to go if it doesn't work out. You might be in a better position to apply after a year or two of post-bacc research, lab teching, or industry work-- or you might be happier doing something else anyway. Take a look around the forums for application tips! But do keep in mind that this board is full of ivy-gunning overachievers 😆If you have any more questions on bio grad school apps or whatever I'm happy to help in this thread or on DMs.

    Rangel or Pickering 2019-2020

    Just a few pieces of advice/my opinions: your grades GPA and gre scores are not that important for the fellowship so don't put so much emphasis on it. I know some people want certain things for the grad school program but for the fellowship it's more about your experiences and crafting them into a well written essay. If I were you I would spend more time on the application essays and reaching out to mentors early to help you vs spending more time and money on the GRE UNLESS you wanted a certain score for a program in case the fellowships didn't work out. Again take it with a grain of salt just my opinions.

    Claremont School of Theology and Process Studies

    Truth be told, and my search has spanned the UK as well, the resources for "Pagan Theology" don't really exist as far as I can tell. The UK has a couple History and Sociology folks who will advise Graduate students studying Neopaganism as an emerging religion/social phenomenon. Then there are various forms of Pagan-adjacent theologians in the US who deal with topics like the Divine Feminine, Process, etc. but I've already made peace with the idea that if I go this route my dissertation topic may need to be more closely aligned with traditional Theology/RS interests and then I can add the Neopagan bent once I am hired somewhere. I am starting at a very meta place, to the point that even the project of theology itself requires justification in the Neopagan community... While I think a Philosophy program is not as plausible in my case (unless there was a strong Philosophy of Religion bent) Philosophy tends to be more highly regarded in my own religious community. That does suck about CGU though. My research seems to indicate that CST and CGU are in the process of a divorce and the CST faculty may be moving to Willamette in Oregon. Perhaps that is part of the reason for the closure given the shared faculty.

    Hunter Silberman School Fall 2019 Admissions

    Awesome info, thanks so much! I have a friend who did clinical track at NYU Silver and got placed in the medical setting because that’s where she had experience. She has mentioned that she wished she advocated for herself more during her first semester to change her placement, and got so much more from second year placements because they were more aligned to what she wanted to pursue. I’m curious how much say we might have in getting the most of field. I made a note on my field doc of preferred setting because I felt it couldn’t hurt

    I appreciate this info SO much too, and I actually referenced your previous post to clear up how confused I was when I used the electronic guide’s course numbers to register for classes so thank you!! 😊 I had luck adding open courses with backups to my shopping cart on CUNY first and registering quickly at my assigned time. I still haven’t received a single email to my CUNY address. I’m taking class with Colleen Katz, Colleen Henry, Keneca Boyce and Stacey Lawrence. Good luck to everyone navigating!!!
