  1. Hey all! If anyone is pursuing paleo and or bio anthropology in graduate school (or another related discipline), would you mind shooting me a PM?
  2. Hey all, I'm a third year student, and I'm really struggling with this question and it has to do with a lack of confidence in my abilities. I always do quite well in my classes (A to A+ range generally) but I simply cannot seem to decide if pursuing academia is the right call for me. I know I would love being a professor, but everyone is telling me that it's so hard to get into a PhD program, then it's so hard to find a job after, and it takes so long that I'm wondering if it would even be worth it? I could easily go to teachers college if I want to teach (I know jobs are minimal
  3. Hi everyone, Because I am going into my third year of undergrad, I certainly need to figure out what I want to do my honours in because I do not want to do an extra year (or more) simply because I did not know what I was doing. I am quite certain I want to go into academia, but I just have no clue whether I want to go into sociology or psychology (or perhaps even anthropology?). I live in Canada, and at my university they offer a joint honours degree where one can complete your honours in two subjects (e.g., psych and soc) and although this seems like the obvious choice, I have on
  4. Hey everyone, Does anyone plan on doing, or know of anyone who plans of doing, a PhD in sociology somewhere in Europe? I was just curious about this possibility and had a few questions about it. For instance, does anyone know if one has to take the GRE to do a PhD in sociology in Europe? Are the admissions more or less competitive?
  5. Hey everyone! I have a couple of questions about teachers colleges Education is something that I have been considering for quite some time (becoming a teacher that is). However, I am curious as to what the top programs are for becoming a teacher after one is finished with their UG? If anyone knows the answer to this, do you also know what kind of GPA students usually have in their UG degree who get accepted to these top programs?
  6. Hey all, Just wondering about what one can do with a PhD in sociology outside of Academia I love sociology so much and I have always wanted to do a PhD, but in the event that I do so and cannot find a job as a professor, does anyone know of any other promising career paths for sociology PhD grads?:) Thanks!
  7. Hi there! I am very curious as to what kind of stats are needed to get into a clinical psychology PhD program in Canada. For UG and Masters, what would be GPA's that would give one a good shot of being accepted? How about GRE score? Thanks so much for your help
  8. My professor was telling me how little work their is for professors in the classroom. However, she said to me that "PhD's are getting a lot of work in Admin positions ay universities." And she said these are high paying jobs. She left before I could ask any other questions. What are these positions and do PhD's actually get them often times and make good money?
  9. Hello all, This may seem slightly silly, but I know of an individual working on a product (it's actually a service) that both he and I truly believe has the potential to be a great success. However, this individual does not have the coding skills to actually create the design he wants for his site, which we hopes will become an app with some success. If any of you are potentially interested in being apart of something like this, and are skilled at coding, please feel free to message me for more details on the job itself . There is potential for a large pay-off with this, we just need a h
  10. Thanks for the answer I suppose 100K + is, quite objectively speaking, pretty "high pay." So perhaps that would be a good reference base?
  11. I am so happy I found this forum! I'm new here, just signed up so it's nice to "meet" you all For the last 7 years of my life, I have been dead set on becoming a lawyer. I have been in all the forums, asked all the questions, but after working with a lawyer this past summer, I realized that law simply isn't for me. This was quite hard to take because it had been my plan for years. However, I had always known that my true passion was studying sociology. I did my honours in sociology and although I always wanted to take it further, my long-time plan to be a lawyer just made me think that I shou
