Hello, I have a friend who is interested in pursuing atmospheric science in graduate school but his university doesn't offer that kind of program. I was wanting to find out what alternative degree programs would provide good preparation for a graduate degree in atmospheric science. I'm in geology so I'm not entirely sure I'm qualified to answer his question, so I'm hoping someone may be able to help. Thanks!
Hello fellow Earth Science friends, With the new administration coming into power I have been worried about the future of Climate Science and Atmospheric Science in General. I am a nontraditional student who studied GIS Earth Sciences for my undergrad and now wants to change course and follow my dream of studying Weather and Climate. I don’t want my research to be called a hoax to the public. The lack of Science in today’s public minds worries me. I am working a 9 to 5 job now after college that sucks the life out of me and I came up with the idea to chase a Master’s degree (possibly PHD to Teach and do Research but that’s a ways in the future). I lack the Physics and Calculus cores to apply now but plan on taking a year and some change to shore up those areas of my background to help me get into a program and to help with my poor cGPA. I am looking for advice on my decision and what else I could possibly do to help with my chances to get into a good school. The advice part is more about the publics and governments perception of Climate and Atmospheric sciences. Do I need to be worried about a stagnant job growth market after graduation? Do I need to worry about job security for the future? I graduated from college and it took 6 months to get a job at all and this job isn’t even in my field but I needed to start paying back my loans so I took it. Do I need to worry about that even with a Master’s degree? Am I making a solid decision to enter a field that has a ton of controversy around it right now? Just looking for some smart people that have smart advice. Seems like there’s a lot of you around here and I’m glad I found this site. Been searching for months for something to help me with Graduate school advice and ran across this amazing forum.
Hi, Can anyone give me an idea on the average GRE requirements for applying to Princeton? I did my Master's from South Carolina and Master's CGPA is 3.63; have two peer reviewed publications in Springer and EGU. I need to retake my GRE next month since the older one got expired. My research interest is on Climate Modeling, Coupled Air-Sea Interactions and Monsoon Forecast. Also, if you've any suggestions about any specific universities, please let me know. That will be very helpful for my application. Thank You!
