    Hi All, I'm sure this might have been covered but I'm asking for your help (please!) I do not live in Missouri and I am not familiar with St.Louis at all. I currently am starting UMSL in the Fall and I'm looking for an apartment, preferably a 2 bed room or large one bedroom for $1000 or less. I have looked and found some places on Craiglist but I have no idea if these places are close to UMSL or even safe areas. Any advice would be helpful, Thank You!
  2. After being accepted to both schools for Criminal Justice I would say choose Rutgers. They have a lot of opportunities to engage in policy relevant research and a lot of connections with think tank agencies like VERA and RAND. Quite a few professors have grants right now (I'm not sure what you area of interests are), and the Dean is Shadd Maruna for crying out loud! Lol Awesome. Todd Clear is also the Provost and has alottttt of projects going on now. While the cost of living is higher than FSU, I still think it's a great school!
  3. The standard package is four years full funding and healthcare. First year you will be an RA.
  4. I'm in social sciences and mainly for writing purposes!
  5. Hi All, I was wondering if someone could help me out. I'm going to start grad school in the Fall and I'm looking to buy a laptop. I'm not an "Apple" person so I'm hoping someone could recommend a PC, something that I can walk around with will be best! Thanks guys!
  6. Okay, this definitely make sense! Thank you all for calming my jitters!
  7. Hey All, I will be starting my PhD this Fall and I need your help (please excuse my ignorance). When selecting someone outside of my school (different state) on my dissertation committee, how would they be able to assist me? Does he/she just call/email me from time to time? Do we physically meet periodically? Can I work with him/her on several projects as well? Thank You! (I'm pretty new to all of this, sorry)

  9. I thought so, thank you for the clarification!
  10. Thanks for all your input! I'm going to try making a list, I'm hoping to make a decision by the end of next week. I should add that graduates from School A fare better on the job market
  11. Hi All, I'm not sure where to post this so I decided to start a new topic. I have a sick obsession with Sudhir Venkatesh and I would love to take one of his classes! I was wondering how hard it would be to get into a class taught by him at Columbia? Thanks!
  12. Hi All, I'm currently torn between two programs and I am hoping you guys can help as I am trying to make a decision by the end of the month. School A: -Top 5 in my field - Has both qualitative and quantitative scholars - Would have to alter my research interests a bit - POI very well known in field has a lot of grants - Willing to negotiate funding offer - Faculty seem excited to have me - Great location - Majority of faculty well known in field - Cost of living expensive - Would have to move across country - Would require working in the summer School B - Top 10 - Good
  13. Hi All I'm currently decided between two schools. School A is #4 in my field (social sciences) offered more funding and the faculty seems REALLY interested in wanting me attend. On the other hand School B is #7, but seems to be a better research fit. Should I choose ranking over fit? Will it really affect me for future job prospects? Thanks
