  1. As an editorial assistant for a scholarly journal, I can confirm that this is indeed sadly normal. I can't tell you how many email reminders I have to send reviewers to remind them to read the #$%* paper and send me their review. It usually has nothing to do with the quality of the submission and everything to do with the fact that volunteering to review a submitted article ends up at the bottom of the priority list for many (though not all) faculty members. If you had another journal in mind that could give you a quicker turn around time, you could always email Journal # 1 and (politely) tell them that you need to hear one way or the other by X Date. Then if that dates rolls around and still nothing, then you can email them to withdraw your paper and send to Journal #2 (though unless you know it will be faster you're probably just signing up for more of a protracted wait). If you do choose to withdraw, it's all about how you phrase the email...
  2. FWIW, there are tons of non-Catholic faculty at Notre Dame. ND is fine with that so long as you pledge to uphold the university's "Catholic intellectual mission" -- i.e. don't actively criticize it.
  3. Just FYI, with the Google Maps app on your phone, you can turn on data/cellular to type in the address and hit search, then turn off data/cellular and the app will still function as a GPS while you walk/drive to where you're going. Definitely wish I had learned that before I maxed out my data plan my first summer abroad!
  4. Make students wait 48 hours to discuss grades with you. The cooling off period can work wonders.
  5. Yep, I met a lot of people who became friends through visiting local churches while I was abroad doing research. Even if you're not religious, church events often equal free food!
  6. To revive this thread: Success in graduate school has much less to do with the number of hours you put in and much more with whether you know how to use those hours in ways that help you progress through your program.
