  1. I'm hopping on the bloated chicken repulsion wagon. I can't do it. Avoid: canned tuna - The oceans activist in me says eat lower on the food chain: sardines! "white fish" corn products refined sugar cheap honey - A lot of supermarket honey is cut with corn syrup and all nutritional benefits are lost coffee that isn't rainforest alliance certified (i.e. most coffee) - My apologies for coming off as a preachy environmentalist, but I feel strongly about this. Most "shade-grown" coffee is grown under a uniform eucalyptus canopy, which is nonnative to South America and useless habitat
  2. Cool --- Did you apply to the environmental science program, or public policy? Or is my acronym guesswork wrong? Have a great visit!
  3. First, my apologies for crashing the Yale FES thread. I just wanted to give you the views of somebody who did not apply to this group of schools because of the financial uncertainties. I think saying that attending a public university will lead to an equal or greater amount of debt than a private, elite school is very misleading. It varies program to program, but overall I think contacting professors with funding is the best way to go about securing your finances and having a debt free experience regardless of public vs private. Morlock, I don't know your research interests or goals but: I
  4. What specific area of environmental policy are you interested in? Which discipline do you gravitate towards? I am inclined to say that a degree from a resource management program may be more in line with your goals than a public policy program, but this carries the weight of my bias from a professional and academic background in ecology/resource management. As someone with experience working in the government, I've noticed that the people drafting management plans and making policy recommendations are people with advanced degrees in either environmental management or a field specific to the i
  5. I guess "dribbling" is too polite of a way to word drunkenly spilling great gobs of stew into a beard with each heaping spoonful. I've only ever witnessed this once, but my oh my it was memorable.
  6. I agree, House of Cards picks up after a few episodes. I didn't like it at first, but then… wow. If you like things strange, creepy, and confusing: "Twin Peaks" is my favorite series and it's available to stream.

  8. There is no menu, but potluck dishes that are mostly gamey stews and green bean casserole... …The guy next to you is dribbling gamey stew in his beard.
  9. Best of luck! What program did you apply to?

  11. I began my SOP with a narrative. It wasn't about my childhood, but an experience I had while working in the national park service. I chose to write an introductory narrative because it was a more creative way of 1) highlighting my experience working in the field, 2) explaining what I am interested in, and 3) explaining how my experiences have shaped my interests. It was tricky to write, but I felt like the end result clearly acknowledged everything in the instructions provided by my school while still being interesting to read. Before I started writing my SOP, I wrote out every single exp
  12. Yes, it is a nudibranch, though I couldn't tell you the species. Swiped it from google images!
  13. At the risk of sounding like Grad Cafe's crazy bird lady: go birding! Finding birds is fun, identifying them is absorbing, and watching them is a thrill. Ebird is a great site to explore recent sightings wherever you are or want to go. I also support the extra long hike and camping idea! In general, I think any outdoors or physical activity will help keep your mind off of the wait.
