    I can't log in either, so I guess I'm out of the race too. Congrats to winners!

    Are you winners receiving email notifications or are you logging into the award site to check? Congrats, guys!
  3. Not dead yet - which is always a bonus in my book. I hope you're all well...
  4. I don't know much about OD, but if you plan to go applied, I/O is going to be a lot more friendly to you. OB/Management programs are geared toward creating academics and often (not always, but PRETTY darn often) expressing an interest in an applied career is looked down upon. It's not that it wouldn't be possible for you to do that work, but OB programs are geared toward producing academics (read: professors). I/O programs tend to take a more balanced approach. Some lean more heavily one way or the other, but there are several top-ranked I/O programs that try to prep you for either career
  5. Trying to get this thesis proposal in shape for the big time... Oy!

  6. If you were to post your stats, people might be better able to pinpoint any possible issues. Of course, no one here can make guarantees about your success. But some more information might allow us to be more helpful.
  7. I prefer "advisor" personally, but I've been known to flip flop arbitrarily.
  8. I always appreciate being corrected and learning what's what. Thanks for the info, and cheers!
  9. Okay, I am not an expert, so please verify everything I say here. If other users are more knowledgeable, please correct me if needed. 1. Personally, I prefer to make as few stops as possible. It minimizes the chance of missed flights, delays, and lost luggage. I would do A --> JFK --> B, but it's ultimately up to you. If you think you need a break in flying, maybe more stops will be better for you. The longest flight I've been on was about 13 hours (USA to Japan). It does suck, but it's doable. Bring things to amuse yourself, as always. 2. If you do end up passing through a
  10. I think a lot of this is very true. Stats are one thing, but most people applying to programs in I/O like Michigan State and Penn State are going to have great stats. In the end, it comes down to fit. Research fit with the faculty (1-2 matches per program is fine), your career goals' fit with the program's orientation (academic? practitioner? A balanced approach?), who else is applying that year, some demonstration that you know what you're getting yourself involved with (both in terms of I/O and research in general. Most programs know I/O experience and courses aren't available, but mak
  11. First year is down!

      Way to go! I have one exam left and the first year is in the bag for me.

      You can do it! I hope it goes well and goes by quickly. :)

  12. For me, the transition wasn't so bad. Having worked full time before (2 years post-BA), it helped me manage my time and do my best to treat grad school like a "9 to 5" gig instead of procrastinating like mad as I did in college (I'm finishing my first year right now). duran0 raises a good point - it can be challenging to adjust to not having disposable income. All in all, I'd say it actually helps with the transition. You're used to working and know how to structure your time.. you've also likely already had the experience of doing things like paying your own bills and managing a house/apa
  13. Thought I'd check back in since it's been a while. Last week was a little rough - rejected from NDSEG, receive honorable mention (but no funding) for the NSF GRFP. ...But life goes on! I feel like I'm back in the groove, and now I'm just dealing with all the upcoming end-of-semester business (papers, exams, etc). How are you all? Soon we're going to be second years. We'll have to make a new thread, lol.
  14. Congratulations to you too! And seriously, cliche as it may be, not the end of the world. I appear to still be alive, so there's that. lol
