  1. Hey everyone! So I made my decision on where I will be going for graduate school, but now I'm trying to decide a place to live while attending. Since it's my first year away from home I didn't know if it's better to have roommates or if it doesn't matter. I've never lived away from home, so I'm not sure how I would handle living with a roommate, but I know it is usually a cheaper option and it could guarantee a friend to do some things with while I'm there. On the other hand, I am usually in my room doing my own thing and not one to want to leave the house or be really sociable so being a
  2. Hi! I'm going to Dartmouth this fall too (for the MCB program though). Where are you looking to stay?
  3. I'm having a very similar problem as you right now, but for different schools. I've basically narrowed it down to two schools, but I also don't know what should be the deciding factor to make my choice. The first school I really like how the program is set up and the location, but they don't have the exact research I was hoping for; although, they do have good research that I could see myself liking if I tried it. The second school has a ton of the research that is exactly what I'm interested in, but I don't really like the location and the way the program is structured. I don't wa
  4. The one program does have an average grad rate of 6.7 years, but they put a lot of work on making sure we know what we can do with our PhD once we leave. The other program has a more national average of 5.5 years, but doesn't do as much with career options
  5. Hey guys! So I have been fortunate enough to have a choice in PhD programs to attend in the fall, but I'm a really indecisive person. This is a big decision, and I'm so worried about making the wrong choice and regretting it. I've basically narrowed it down to two schools, but don't know what should be the deciding factor to make my choice. The first school I really like how the program is set up and the location, but they don't have the exact research I was hoping for; although, they do have good research that I could see myself liking if I tried it. The second school has a ton of
  6. Thanks for the advice! I just hope I'm dressed appropriately, and not more under-dressed as the other applicants.
  7. I have four interviews back to back now...I'm so worried that I'm going to feel drained by the third one
  8. I asked my graduate mentor and she advised me to do back to back interviews to just get them all out of the way with at once, but it's definitely a personal opinion. If the faculty you want are only available at the one then you should do that.
  9. Hi, I have recently been invited to an interview for a PhD program at Dartmouth and they sent an email that informed us on what would be the proper attire. According to their email "The event is casual so comfortable clothing is preferred. This is New England so bring appropriate outerwear for walking outside (gloves, hat, coat, boots for dealing with snow). I want to stress that you not wear business suits or dress shoes. Please bring warm outdoor boots, coats, gloves/mittens to keep you warm during walks around campus." I was originally planing on wearing black dress pants, a dress t
