  1. Thank you for all the feedback and advice @rising_star and @comparativist. I really appreciate it. I am definitely happy to work independently and I have spent a lot of time learning things on my own before and during my program, however with the thesis in particular I've been struggling to figure out how to do that. rising star, a lot of what you said is tremendously helpful, thank you. In response to your points - 1) I haven't started on a proposal yet since I'm still working out what my thesis will entail. I only began talking about it with my advisor at the beginning of this pa
  2. I'm nearing my last semester of my two year Master's program (anthropology) and I feel like I've barely learned enough to scape by in my field, never mind apply to PhD programs. Unfortunately(/fortunately) I know I am not alone in this feeling, as two other students in my cohort feel the same way and share many of the same frustrations. My advisor is very respected and connected in my field and is available for occasional meetings, however, he offers very, very little direction or concrete guidance, and has actually said to another MA student regarding their thesis to "just get it done," stron
  3.

Michael Willoughby of the Graduate College, and he will officia
  4. Two of the schools I am applying to are in NYC and I currently live in NYC. Any opinions on whether or not to mention that I live here in my SoP? One of the draws of the programs is obviously the location and that I want to stay here (though not the main reason I'm applying to them). I feel like it could be beneficial for the admissions committee to know that I already live here, know my way around, and won't be overwhelmed by the city... or it could be totally unnecessary.
  5. I'm in the same boat, I majored in Linguistics in undergrad and I am applying to Biological/Physical Anthropology programs (I want to do forensic anthropology). Linguistics and Biological Anthropology are both in the realm of anthropology, but my linguistics program was based more on the science of speech and language, and we had no anthro. classes (though, I've since taken some). I had no idea how/if I absolutely need to bring up my UG major.
