  1. I'm interested in applying to a top-10 MBA program but am not sure about my stats. GPA: around 3.6 (reputable public university) Major: humanities GRE V: 165 GRE Q: 157 GRE W: 6 Work experience: 3 years in marketing/comms (all outside the US) Extra: foreign language proficiency and some volunteer experience (starting 2010) I'm worried about my quant score. Do I need to retake the GRE? I didn't take many quant classes in college. Thanks for your input!
  2. Hi Everyone! I'm interested in learning more about social psych (i.e. job outlook, relevant research, grad school requirements and competition, etc.). I have a BA in anthropology and some work experience abroad. I've become interested in psychology through work at a marketing research firm, but I really don't know much about it. Any help, insights or resources? Thanks!
  3. Thanks for your reply! Are there any funded Master's programs? I do feel a bit rushed when it comes to a PhD program...
  4. Hi Everyone! I've been out of school for a while and am planning on applying to PhD programs next year. I'm interested in medical anthropology, but I didn't do any work in this area as an undergrad. I'm thinking of undertaking an independent month-long research project to produce a better sample, but I was wondering how admissions committees would view this. Would doing something like this work in my favor or just be seen as bizarre? Thanks!
  5. Hi Everyone! I became interested in public health while preparing for a degree in medical anthropology. After some cursory research, I started thinking that PH might be more up my alley. Still, I'm not very familiar with MPH programs and was wondering if there are any fully-funded programs as well as what I should do to make myself a stronger applicant. I have a degree in anthropology with some international health-related NGO internship experience, which culminated into an honors thesis. Since graduating in 2008, I've worked a variety of jobs while living abroad. Although, I spent some time w
  6. I've become interested in public health via an undergrad research project, which focused on medical anthropology. What's your advice for learning more about public health/global health? Right now, I'm looking for volunteer/internship/job opportunities at health-related NGOs, but I'm living abroad in a region where these sort of jobs are hard to come by. What do MPH programs look for in candidates? What's the best way to gain exposure and experience? Thanks so much!
  7. I took the GRE in August 2007 and kinda bombed it. Luckily, I took it again last year and did quite well. Does anyone know when August 2007 scores expire? I'd hate for them to show up on my score report! I read that ETS's year starts on July 1 and ends on June 30, which would mean that my scores won't expire until August 2013? I'm not sure. How bad do first time scores look to admissions committees? Should I just wait until December 2013 to apply?
  8. Thanks! You're right in that I don't want to include my older reports haha. I'm just worried because I read somewhere that ETS's testing year is July 1 to June 30. Therefore, it seems that an August 2007 test might appear on a 2012 score report, right?
  9. Does this mean that a GRE I took in August 2007 won't be counted if I apply in December 2012?
  10. Does anyone know of any NGO/think tank that has a sociological/cultural focus and programs dedicated to East Asia?
  11. Hi Everyone, I'm interested in applying to an East Asian Studies MA program but don't want to spend a lot of money for the degree. Are there any well-funded or fully-funded programs out there for master's students? Any comprehensive scholarships? Thanks!
  12. Hey! Did anyone get into cultural anth programs at the schools listed below? If so, could you PM me? I'd be interested in learning more about your background! Chicago Harvard Yale NYU Columbia Duke Cornell Davis Cal
  13. So, I'm interested in applying to cultural anth programs next year, and I'm wondering what I should do to beef up my resume. I have OK grades and GRE scores, and I've been living abroad in my region of interest since graduating a few years ago. Unfortunately, I haven't worked any jobs/internships related to my area of interest. I also worry that my lack of solid credentials(i.e. publications, scholarships, or prestigious grants--like a Fulbright) will hurt my application. What should I do to beef up my resume? Also, what seems to 'count' in the application process? I'd love to hear from pe
  14. Just to clarify, I want to know when people usually write professors to inquire whether they are taking on students in 2013 and to request a meeting.
