  1. Here's a question: why are you so disinterested in taking language courses? Anybody who's vaguely familiar with history programs knows that foreign language training is usually par for the course among History PhDs, so I'm curious to know why you're trying to get around this requirement.

  3. Hi siono what exactly was this non profit work? They would really want to see you've done social work practice with a client group post MSW first and foremost. So for example, I have 3+ years working as a social worker with children and families.

  4. Not saying it's untrue for your app experience, since I know nothing else about it, but I think that may be overstating the writing section's importance just a tad.

I mean, why would a committee care what you got on AW if they have your writing sample right in front of them?

  8. Yep. Even double checking I would consistently transpose the numbers. It was the environment which threw off my thinking. Also to GradSecretary, I plan on getting off AD's with time. They were only meant as a temporary solution. But, they might indeed be having a negative effect. It's crossed my mind in the past. Anyway, good news! I passed the Ph.D. qualifying exams! So, after all that work and struggle, I am shocked that I managed to pass. Apparently, "with flying colors" as my advisor said. I also had to remind him to inform me. He had completely forgotten to tell me becau

  9. Well, I got my grades back, and I have achieved the goal I was looking for. It's not a great goal, but, basically, I get to keep all of my financial aid! Now, just to study for the qualifying exams. Right now I am mathematically precisely at the minimum GPA to keep all my funding. I do not like where my GPA is at whatsoever, but at least I am still getting funding. Given the constant emotional turmoil and doctor's visits half the time trying to figure out what was being triggered in my head, I think things turned out alright. I nailed two out of my last 3 exams, so the treatment seems to
