  1. I have 2 offers with very different field work: One of them involves really intense months of hiking, nest and bird identification, mist netting, and tracking. It sounds amazing, but I’ve never been backwoods camping for example, and have limited field experience. I wondered if anyone else had deep dived into this sort of intense fieldwork and what feedback you could share? The other involves fieldwork but is much more computational. In fact, if I didn’t want to do fieldwork they’d be fine with it (I do!). I’ll really have to push to incorporate more theoretical analysis into the first op
  2. I have great offers from two schools: One a Natural Resources Department and one an EEB. I’m hoping to get hired in a traditional biology department afterwards where my partner is. I’ve read online that some traditional biology departments look down on Natural Resources because they’re so applied and less theoretical. I wondered if anyone had insight into this? These do seem like very traditional departments: NSF grants and a rockstar professor in EEB and USDA grants + conservation contracts in SNRE.
  3. Hi all! I'm very interested in the Ecological Restoration Master's offered by Simon Fraser University and BCIT (In British Columbia, Canada). I feel like it has the perfect balance of field work and diligent research to check all of my particular boxes, and everything I read up on this program makes excites me. I know I would love being in the field of ecological restoration or conservation, and this master's genuinely seems like my perfect fit. HOWEVER! It's relatively new (started in 2015), and is the only master's degree of it's kind in Canada according to the SFU and BCIT websites. Th
  4. I am waiting to hear about a masters in Zoology at the University of Hawaii at Manoa, a masters in Biological Sciences at the University of Tulsa, and a masters in Ecology & Evolutionary Biology at Ohio University or the University of Connecticut (UConn). Does anyone know if it's normal that I haven't received any news by this point? There's hardly any info on here about when they've historically sent acceptances and rejections.
  5. My first grad app was to Ohio State EEOB Ms program which was due on Nov. 15th. Why would they have the application deadline so early if they are not going to send out decisions until after the holidays?
  6. Hi people, I decided to have an Ecology and Evolutionary Biology thread for this year's round of applicants since I couldn't find one for this year, and I'd love to see the profiles and school choices and results of the rest of the folks here applying, and open up a place for people interested in the same subjects to chat! Figured I'd head it off even if it is late.

  7. My goal is to earn a PhD in Marine Ecology but I don't have very much background in it or any research experience. I graduated from the Naval Academy 2 years ago with a BS in General Science (Biology/Ecology were not offered majors). Does anyone have any advice/know of any programs that could get me more research experience in biology/ecology to make me more competitive? Thanks!
  8. Does anyone have information (literally any information beyond that on the website) about Colorado State University's Bioagricultural Sciences and Pest Management Ph.D. program? I applied 1/15 which was the due date to be considered for a TA-ship/RA-ship, had a weird thing happen with my master's transcripts that was resolved, and as of 1/28, I have had "your application is ready for review by your department." I know my application was sent to my POI. But that is all. I searched in results, the only one was from 3 years ago. I Googled, searched on this site, tried using boolean operato
  9. Hello, I submitted my abstract for a contributed talk at the Ecological Society of America annual meeting in February. According to their website, I should've heard back if my abstract was accepted but I didn't. Does that mean mine was rejected? Would also love to know if anyone has heard anything from the same conference, or if it's a norm not to expect rejection emails. Thanks!
  10. Hi all! Noticed that we didn't have an Ecology and Evolutionary Biology thread for this year's round of applicants, and I'd love to see the profiles and school choices and results of the rest of the folks here applying, and open up a place for people interested in the same subjects to chat!

  11. My goal is to earn a PhD in ecology with a focus is either estuarine ecology or biological oceanography. However, I am a Naval Academy graduate and did not get much research experience there, unfortunately those opportunities don't really exist at Navy. Now I am working as a Data Analyst in the Boston Area and trying to figure out if there is any way possible for me to get research experience part time while I work, or any other suggestions that could help propel me towards my PhD goal. Thank you for any suggestions!
  12. Hey everyone! Has anyone heard ANYTHING from UNR for the Biology master's program? I check this website daily, and the only acceptances as of now are still PhD. The PI I spoke to mentioned that in the past, their graduate students would visit the campus during their Spring Break. Mine is in 2 weeks, and I haven't heard a single thing regarding this program. UNR is the only school I applied to, but I'm not sure that matters in this forum! But seriously, has anyone who has applied for the Biology Masters heard back?
  13. I'm spectacularly torn between two schools' Ecology and Evolutionary Biology programs. School A, the University of AZ Tucson, I haven't actually gotten into yet; but was waitlisted- according to the PoI I have a good shot of getting accepted; but if I do it'll be closer to the deadline and I need to know whether I'd accept an offer from School A or B if I hear back from them at the eleventh hour. School B, the University of MN Twin Cities, I've been accepted to. I've gone back and forth on which one I think I like more and it's been nearly impossible to decide. I ask your help in knowing what
  14. Does anyone have any insight into the Columbia Ecology (E3B) department? (e.g. current students, prospective students, peers at other schools who have visited)
  15. Any other current or previous applicants on here? I'm not expecting to be accepted (great GPA, poor GRE scores, no previous experience) but waiting is brutal! When do we expect acceptance/rejection emails?
  16. Hey! I'm looking for some critiques on my SOP. Anyone willing to help me out? I'll gladly return the favor!
  17. Hi All, I hope I've posted this in the right place. I'm hoping that somebody will be able to provide me with a few more universities who conduct Molecular Ecology work, especially environmental DNA work. So far I've looked at Michigan Tech, Teledo CUNY Central Michigan Also on average how many PhDs programs should one apply for. Unlike the UK they all seem to have application fees as well?
  18. So, Last year I applied to graduate schools. I didn't get into any of my schools but I did get feedback from almost all of them. The only thing they could all say was that I had no publications. Unfortunately, this is rather hard to fix. Since then I have been working as a field technician in my field (ecology) and I have talked to my PI about authorship. She said that I can take an active role in the papers that come from the research I'm doing, but that these papers likely won't be even closed to published when I apply to graduate school. Since this was my only feedback last time I app
  19. I'm planning on applying for fall 2018, that being said I've started to research programs over the past months. I am interested in how humans have used the land in the past, and how we can use that information to inform the way we conserve ecosystems. Initially I was just looking at ecology programs, however I keep finding anthropology programs that seem to fit very closely with what I'm interested in. However, I'm nervous to apply to these programs since I don't have a lot of direct experience with Anthropology (besides an introductory cultural anthropology class I took as an undergrad). As a
  20. Hi! I'm looking for information on scholarships and masters programs in Germany, Switzerland, or Austria. I want to study Ecology/Conservation Biology/Natural History. Kind of a specific request but if anyone has any information at all, I would be much obliged! I don't speak German fluently yet so I need to find a program that teaches in English, which from the research I've done looks doable. I'm having a hard time finding scholarships. I've found a few programs, but it's sometimes difficult to find them! I could apply as either an American citizen or a Swiss citizen, because I have both.
  21. I wanted to make a separate thread for EEB stats b/c the programs tend to be pretty distinctive from gen bio and I'm curious what other people are up to this season! Here's a copy of the same rubric that is used in the other threads Undergrad Institution: (School or type of school, such as big state, lib arts, ivy, technical, foreign (what country?)...

  22. Hi there, A few months ago, I applied to UC Berkeley's (UCB) ecology PhD program. I thought that now all that was left to do was to await UCB's response. However, a recent conversation with a friend (PhD, Engineering) got me wondering as to whether I left stones un-turned. Granted, his advice might not be applicable to my case... Can anyone offer thoughts on the following: (1) Is it bad that I have not met with my prospective mentor? I contacted my would-be mentor well before applying to UCB. He responded (via email) that I have an impressive background, that I should apply, and that
  23. Many of the graduate programmes(PhD in my case) in Ecology,Animal Behaviour,Behavioural Ecology are stating that they require at least a few semesters of Mathematics,including Calculus in undergraduate or postgraduate levels. Some even require Physics. These subjects are generally not offered in universities (here,in India) for Biology related subjects. My query is,is there any way around it,for example,additional coursework later on ?
  24. I have secured admission to the Center for Ecology and Environment at UNC; into their phd program in ecology. would someone know about this program? can anyone give me an idea as to the quality of this program? is this good? the Other option that i have in hand is a phd in sustainability from the School of Sustainability, ASU. a response would be appreciated
  25. I am in the process of deciding which grad programs to apply to and have stumbled across Yale's joint-degree program, Religion and Ecology. Has anyone in this forum participated in the program? Thoughts? I am specifically interested in the relationship between religion and landscape. That is to say, the nineteenth century religious attitudes of Americans toward their bioregion, landscape, geography, etc. and in turn, how these attitudes affected the environment and land stewardship. If I pursue this route, I would prefer to do the MAR concentrated track because I hope to pursue my Ph.D.
