    SoP Writing Group

    I'd prefer the e-mail group, but if the majority prefer to post here, I'm ok with that. Hoping to have a draft done by the end of this upcoming week.

    I'm interested in this. I'm partway through my first draft now and would love to share SoP's with folks to get and give feedback.

    Wise words! Thank you for the great read. It is just the thing I needed today. :-)

    Fall 2016 Applicants

    It totally answers my question. Thank you :-) And sorry my question was a bit vague. That's what I get typing it up at the end of a long day.

    Fall 2016 Applicants

    I've haven't really thought about the special ed research route. It is something I'll have to stew on as I gear up for this. And it is definitely an angle to consider when looking for people to collaborate with down the road. I think your research thread sounds very interesting. Is there a specific population you're looking to study this is? I'd be curious to see if it differs in some populations.

    Fall 2016 Applicants

    Haha! It is MrSmithUT. I was just too lazy to put it all in there that way when I created the account. ;-) I'm kind of all over the place on the biopsychosocial aspects. It could be something like use/abuse of drug among students (be it "hard drugs", alcohol, prescription stimulants, or others)......or looking to see how prevalent those struggling due to an educational issue cope with what I'm sure is increased depression (though would have to determine if this population has more depression than the "average" student in higher education)......or like you said, looking at exercise or yoga or other activities to see how they impact students ability to learn and overall well-being. As you mentioned, there doesn't seem to be a lot of people in this niche yet, and it excites me thinking about all there is to learn/study here. My master's is in Counseling with an Emphasis in Student Affairs Administration. I've also previously done a master's in the biological sciences, and worked a bit in clinical research in the medical field before coming back to school. Just feels like I'm settling into a groove here that feels right for me, and I'm excited to get more into it. :-) What are you looking into in terms of Educational Neuroscience? Anything in particular that you're itching to delve deeper into?

    Fall 2016 Applicants

    Hello pearl31 and EduNeuroGrl! I'm also planning to apply to PhD programs for Fall 2016! Nice to see a couple other fellow applicants on here. My interests are in a couple different areas. One is looking at student persistence in higher education and the other is in the biospychosocial aspects of education, particularly higher education (sounds like EduNeuroGrl and should talk shop at some point on the latter one). It is a bit daunting looking at the programs out there, but I'm going to give it my best shot and hope it all works out. I'm currently enrolled in a master's program, and have been fortunate enough to get some research going since starting the program last fall (one already underway, the other just getting off the ground). I am hoping to get the PhD in order to be able to eventually work as a professor and be able to both teach and do research. Looking forward to getting through this journey with you two and the other great folks out there!
