    Transcripts from study abroad universities

    my experience is that it varies per school. I applied to 6 places, only one wanted the transcript during application. Some required only a scanned version for now (unofficial), some didn't care about it as long as it was on my actual transcript from my school

    Question to Ask Department?

    Be careful to not ask things that are available on the website though.

    Best Device for Reading PDFs

    Definitely save them in a reference manager! It will also allow you to make notes, highlight parts of the paper, etc. I also put them in folders and give them keywords so I can search for relevant papers easily in the future. For this reason, I use my laptop or PC to read them. I used to use mendeley, now switched to EndNote because I like the sorting and search functions better. There are cracked versions online - but you don't have that from me. Your uni will be able to get you a 'real' version anyway. If you prefer to print them, you could consider scanning them and uploading them. But definitely start building your own 'library' of papers, it's going to help you in the end.

    Question about Supervision Styles

    Also depends on your survey. If you're using some standard questionnaire (common in psych) with standard questions, it's not necessarily needed. My uni also used standardized consent forms. I always ran instructions (if not from an existing questionnaire) and debrief by my advisor. I then had some fellow students check the flow of my survey and check for typos (and returned the favor of course). My advisor always wanted a copy of my survey in word form on which he made comments, but only on the non-standardized sections.

    Venting Thread- Vent about anything.

    Tonight I'm flying and I don't know when I'll see my significant other again. We've been crying all day for the last 2 days. I care so much about him. I don't like this. I don't like saying goodbye to this place, how much I hate it sometimes for all sorts of reasons. But it's OK as long as were together. But this time.. It's so hard.
  12. Depends on where you are going. If it is nearby where you currently live, you may want to drive some stuff over to your new place. As I'm moving halfway across the world I'm just ordering IKEA as I have no interest in the hassle of budget shopping etc. My flatmate will collect the stuff for me and put it in my room. I actually enjoy putting IKEA together and I do not plan on getting a lot (Northern European minimalism lolz), so it works for me.
