  1. For their final essay, I had four students self-plagiarize from an earlier essay... including one which copy-pasted his submission from the last time he took the course with me last fall. Good grief.
  2. We all love (most of) our students and teaching in general, but we definitely have some qualms.
  3. University Of Washington English, PhD (F19) Rejected via E-mail on 21 Feb 2019 A 20 Feb 2019 report spam Me: *dramatically sings to try and increase my chances of admission* UW: I'm sorry, it's a no from me. Stanford University Marketing, PhD (F19) Rejected via E-mail on 20 Feb 2019 U 20 Feb 2019 report spam Unfollowed them on LinkedIn. That'll teach em
  4. Me and my partner just got a new puppy in time for finals, and sometimes I spend hours grading papers (which I wish could be spent playing and training her). I asked my mom how she made it through her master's with children, and she said "I had no life." This is how I feel with my fur baby. Also I can't go out for an end-of-semester graduate student bar crawl because I'm watching her by myself, and it'd be a long drive with a puppy.
  5. The workload can be tough to deal with for the first semester, which depends on the classes you want to take. However I will say that I love being a GTA, and it's given me great experience. Plus having tuition deferment and a stipend has taken off a lot of pressure for me to focus on academia.
  6. It would depend on a few things as @bibliophile222 said. If it's below the fiftieth percentile, I would consider it, but if you have a 3.75+ GPA I wouldn't worry too much. However, I would do some research about your programs and how much they weigh GRE in terms overall profiles. A good statement of purpose always helps, too!
  7. @Hk328 Agreed, transcripts are required. Academic records are rarely asked for.
  8. Hello all! Glad everybody is working hard! Nice to meet everybody!
  9. Hidden Brain with Shankar Vedantam from NPR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  10. My partner finally met my extended family and they love him! Great news to end out the summer!
  11. @ExponentialDecay Yes to all especially the RA point. A lot of schools don't allow undergraduates to be a TA, but if yours does fully take advantage of it. Also start putting together a CV and build that CV up with research, volunteering, teaching experience, etc. Also begin to put points together to write a good statement of purpose, granted you won't need it until you start doing applications, but it's nice figuring out what your philosophy is so you don't have to do so last minute @HTM18 I second that 100%, in my experience GRE scores can make or break an application. Also,
  12. They actually just sent out a more comprehensive schedule yesterday! Guess who has a full schedule again? Thanks for the help!
  13. What do I do for the two weeks before schools starts that I'm required to be on campus???
