  2. For most M.A. English programs, an academic writing sample of 15-25 pages. Would most programs be okay with 2 samples that add up to 15-25 pages? Or do they really just want one 15 page sample?
  3. Hi everyone! I'm planning to apply to the MA in Political Science at UBC for the September 2021 intake (I've got everything ready but the three recommendation letters but that shouldn't be a problem) Here's my "stats": GPA of the last two years (BA degree): 3.73/4.0 and 3.8/4.0. My final grade was 110 cum laude which in my country (Italy) is the highest you can get TOEFL: 107/120 Extra curricular: sadly not much except for the fact I've spent a semester in China (my BA is in East Asian studies, so I want to conduct research into Asian politics at UBC as it's one of the

  5. I'm currently looking into schools to get my masters in wildlife biology, but my anxiety has had me stuck and now I'm falling behind. I haven't actually contacted any professors yet First, what exactly are my odds of getting into a program? Most are requesting GPA after the first 60 semester hours so 3.36 and I have an average GRE score, so I'm considering retaking. I got my B.S. in December of 2014 and unfortunately have not had any luck with a related jobs :/ I've been working food service to save up some money the last few years. Second, When applying to a lab, all professors wa
  6. Hello! I heard that this forum was the perfect place to ask the kind community for help with statement of intent/purpose revisions? Could someone help me by taking looking at my statements and offer feedback or with writing revision. Any feedback at all would be greatly appreciated!
  7. Hello, I'm currently a Junior looking toward the upcoming application season for PhD programs. I'm interested in natural products (e.g. discovery, structural elucidation, biosynthesis, etc.) and I was wondering if anyone has recommendations for potential POIs or programs. I've done an initial literature search and have come up with some of the popular ones such as Balskus and Clardy at Harvard, Fischbach at UCSF and the slew of people at UCSD in the Scrips Institute of Oceanography. However, I keep coming up with many of the same people, which is making it hard to extend my list. Does anyone h
  8. For the past 3 years, my goal was to apply to a clinical psychology program, and thus undertook volunteering/work opportunities geared towards this field. However, recently, I've also been considering a career in I/O as well. It doesn't seem like there is as much graduate school admissions info. out there for I/O programs than there are clinical programs, so if anyone could help me out, that would be great! First, some numbers/background: GPA: Overall: 3.54 (pre-med in college) from a "big name" school Last 2 years: 3.7 Cognitive Science major, psychology minor GRE: 1500 on the unrevised
