  1. @manicape awesome advice and pointers. Thank you so much!
  2. Hey all, I posted this in the Fall 2019 applicants thread but someone suggested I use this thread instead... so im reposting lol. I have a skype interview with my potential advisor from CUNY this Friday. This is my first application cycle and I'm not entirely sure what to expect/prepare for in an unofficial interview with an advisor. I know were probably going to discuss how our research interests and ideas mesh, as well as specifics about her field site, but I was wondering if any of you who have more experience with this process than I do have any suggestions to help me prepare. Thanks!

  4. Hey all, Just wanted to stop in and post a little update about where I'm at, as the nerves are starting to set in and I wanted to chat with others going through this struggle of applying. I'm applying to study bioanth, particularly nonhuman primate social behavior. I applied to a wide swath of schools, all of which are PhD programs besides UCW: NYU (Anthropology), CUNY (Anthropology), Columbia (Ecology, Evolution, and Environmental Biology), Stony Brook (Anthropology), UC Davis (Animal Behavior group), Arizona State (Anthropology), University of Michigan (BioPsychology), and University of Central Washington (Primate Behavior Masters). So far, I was rejected from University of Michigan, which wasn't a huge surprise considering I'm an anthropologist applying to a crazy competitive psychology program... Although I did get an email from my POI at CUNY asking more about my project ideas, if I applied to the NSF GRFP (I did), and about possibly scheduling a skype call to discuss conditions at her field site and tweaking my current research ideas to fit her study species.... so I have some hope!!! Haven't heard anything from other programs so far, wondering if anyone on here has heard from any of the programs I listed... Besides that I wish everyone the best of luck in the coming months!
  5. Hi all, I'm currently working on my application for the NSF-GRFP, and I have a question for those of you who have/are applying to the GRFP. My area of research interest is in non-human primate behavior and the evolution of sociality. My degree and the graduate degree programs I am applying to this upcoming cycle are in Biological Anthropology, but I was wondering if there were advantages or disadvantages to doing an interdisciplinary application split between bio anth and evolutionary biology, rather than just strictly a bio anth application. One one hand, my focus area heavily focuses on evolutionary theory in relation to non-human primates, and i am afraid if I just make my application a bio anth one I will get paleoanthropologist sas my reviewers who might not understand or be interested in my work the same way that an evolutionary biologist would. On the flip side though, I feel like the "Life Sciences" subject area is far more saturated with applicants than the "social sciences" subject area for this fellowship, so it might be better for me just to stick to biological anthropology and leave evolutionary biology out of it to have my application compete with less people for funding. I am curious what all of you think, look forward to your responses!
