  1. I'm trying to separate the Phd and MA advice right now. (There would of course, be overlap) I'm looking for a program that would help with language accusation. Right now I'm independently studying German (using Wilson's "German Quickly") I thought about CLEP-ing, but maybe that's not the wisest choice?
  2. SOP. I'm in the beginning stages (pre-writing) following Asher's advice, and the first prewriting activity is what makes you unique (not as a student but as a person.) He had a an example of this girl who said she was "average"(but spoilers: she was in an earthquake!) I just found that advice too far fetched for my tastes, I guess.
  3. We are all trying to find our futures! Good Luck!
  4. First some history: I took the GRE in October 2013. I've been out of undergrad for about a year or so. (dec '13) I'm interested in an MA in the ancient world (at this very moment Racism and Slavery) AND I worry about getting to grad school and changing my topic. My question is: how did you come to the conclusion to study with who and at which department? Was it which school offered the best aid, the location, or just luck of the draw or a combination of those factors? Because I think that's what I'm struggling with the most: trying to find a advisor who matches my own interests. I worry about getting in and then having a "bad" advisor (this is counter productive, of course.) So I think I'm just looking for a way to competently (re)start my search. Any suggestions?
  5. HA.....now I hate buying coffee and try to make my own
  6. This might be a silly question, but didn't you don research on your advisor before you got assigned to him? (That's another fear I suppose...advisor and I might not be a "match")
  7. Take some time off. Watch a movie, read a book. I took a week off. It was glorious! Now back to the grind!
  8. So the field I plan to go into is Ancient History. During undergrad, I worked with a professor whose speciality was Islamic Studies. Would it be ok to ask him for a LoR? Or should it be someone from Ancient History? I haven't decided about the other two letters.
  9. I second the TODDY cold brew system. Simply amazing.
