  1. A quick e-mail to the schools with early deadlines won't hurt.
  2. Oh, so it's supposed to be free? I didn't know that. haha. Thanks!
  3. I was wondering where new students buy their lab coats. Is it issued by the school or do you buy it online? Obviously I would want to buy a new lab coat for when I start research in the summer. Do you have any suggestions about the material, etc.? This blog seems informative: http://blog.chembark.com/2010/09/21/buying-a-lab-coat/ But I wanted to know what you guys think.
  4. Yeah, pretty much had the same experience. The only difference was I was the one making all the noise (my keyboard was so noisy!).
  5. I think it depends on the school. One school I applied to, I sent my IELTS test score in August and apparently you need to have an online application first so that they can track it. I ended up resending it in December.
  6. e-mail the schools/programs directly.
  7. I am starting research first week of July, and I've also made housing arrangements. They only started processing my I-20 last week! *panic mode on*
  8. 60% (3 out of 5 PhD programs) Last year obviously it was 0%, but that was for MS Programs.

  10. yup, same here! no word yet about the I-20. I keep on asking them and they always say it's too early. I'm actually leaving by first week of August because I still have English classes for International TAs. I'll just trust that they know what their doing; I've been too stressed panicking about this for days!
  11. Haha, I didn't realize I repeated what Andsowego said.
  12. ME TOO! I love tea! OnT: In my case, I experiment on different teaching styles for every class and see where they respond best. If I have a bad teaching day now, I'll try a different approach the next time.
  13. I was studying French last year while reviewing GRE vocabulary words. Somehow, this was the only word that I remembered, LOL.
