    Interview invitations already?

    #HumbleBrag
  2. Just wondering if anyone is doing research on working memory out there. Would love to know what you are working on. I am interested in working memory training programs. Do they work? Does it depend on the population? Also interested in ways working memory plays a role in reading. If working memory training programs do work, will that improve reading scores? I am working on a paper (for class) right now about mindfulness and working memory. It's all pretty interesting.

    Business Cards?

    Thanks for all the feedback. I think I may get some business cards. I most likely wont go into academia after I graduate, so I want to network for future jobs and business cards will help.

    Business Cards?

    Can all PhD students call themselves PhD Candidates? Or only those who are done with coursework?

    Business Cards?

    Do any of the current PhD students have business cards? I know some universities have printing services for PhD students to have business cards. Just wondering what others are doing.

    Health Insurance

    Does your university supply you with health insurance with your graduate assistantship? Are you getting the same health benefits as employees of the school?

    Teach for America?

    If you already know you want to teach, go ahead and go the traditional teaching route and make that your career choice.

    Cool 'GradPay' Site for stipends

    Recently saw a Psychology professor tweet about this site that allows you to submit and look at schools and their stipends. It's basically just like the results page but for stipends. Thought I would share to get more people to submit their info. http://gradpay.herokuapp.com/ It's also nice to see what other departments are giving out compared to your own.

    Criteria to use when selecting a program

    1. Fit 2. Fit 3. Fit Of course funding is important and the school, but when making a list of schools you want to apply to, make sure the research fits. You don't want to apply to Harvard even thought they do not do the research you want to do. Maybe the top researcher in your area is at a state school in Ohio. That school would be better, in my opinion, than Harvard that doesn't do the research you want to do.

    Best psychology books that's not a textbook

    Thanks for all the suggestions. I have Nate Silver's book on my shelf. Just gotta find time to read it. Has anyone read The Invisible Gorilla: How our Intutiions Decieve us by Simons & Charbis?
  14. What are some good nonfiction psychology books that you have read? I know Steven Pinker has written a few books.

    Starting Research Lab While in School

    This really helps. Thanks for all of the suggestions. I don't start until the fall, but it's great knowing all these ideas before I start. I am working on a generic website right now that shows my research interests, cv, etc.
