    anthropologygeek reacted to anthropologygeek in The Waiting Game - Fall 2014   
    Schools don't care about the recs letters coming in on time. The schools understand since they have profs who sometimes don't send in recs on time and its out of the students hands. All just want them before the committee meets which is at least a week after the deadline and even then they will look at the app without all the letters and sometimes even accept the student with the understanding they will get the recs in before they start

    Wide- they have a good program. Most years they don't take any forensic phd's. Funding is limited and very competitive for the anthro department. I have a friend currently there. Had funding in years 1-3 no funding 2-4

    You can submit everything before recs come. Most of the time they are done last minute and sent to the school by person doing the rec.

    One thing to keep in mind, most universities won't let you be a tenure professor if you went there for your phd so if all things equal why not leave a school you would love to teach at open for potential jobs.

    And I'm just being honest. If you are confident in your ability to find money for your phd funding wouldn't be a priority

    Day kid- no cheap shot just the truth. I never worried about funding because I knew by the time I started any program I would have funding somehow. It's all about your skill at grant writing and being creative. If your not just giving funding but its the best school for you why not put in the extra effort and find funding thru a different department, or get a fellowship? Why not apply to all the JC and teach a couple of classes? All this takes more effort and from experience most people won't put in the extra effort.

    Fit is most important since your always be able to find funding once you get there.

    Strud- I disagree. The first round of apps gets discarding by a secretary who sole job is to look at both the gre and gpa and if either are too low they get discarded

    I do know with the old gre the university wouldn't allow acceptance with under a 1000 unlike special circumstance even if the department wanted you. Alot of universities had 1100 and then alot had 1200 with some at 1250. Mind you when I cared about it the only gre was the old scoring system.

    Couldn't you conceivably take debt the first year but apply for fellowships and grants this fall and get funding for next year? I know this sounds risky, but I was just throwing it out there. Also, what are the chances that after working with the faculty for the year on loans, that you would be considered for departmental funding the following year?

    Well, I suppose I'll have to wear a Star Wars shirt. Pretty sure this is shaping up to be quite the gathering of awesomeness....
     
     
     
    I appreciate it! I will definitely pop back in. Actually, I'll be finishing up my Masters this next quarter and I plan on writing up some advice for the Wisdom Repository soon. I just wanted to make sure I said thank you just in case I DID get sucked in.
     
    Cheers again!
     
     
    P.S. if this meeting does happen in the future remember to PM me even if I have dissappeared!

    Day kid- you must not think very highly of yourself or your research. You should only be funded by your department for a year or two max. By then your have to leave and do your research thus give up the funding and should be funded by outside sources. Maybe I just have more faith in myself than other have in themselves since funding was never a factor in my decission making and ill be graduating in may with my phd with a total of 20k student loans for undergrad, masters, and phd. Not to shabby and that 20k was while I was in undergrad
