  1. Anyone on here applying to Tulane for Anthropology or Linguistics this year? I've applied to both Anthropology (cultural) and EEB for PhDs, and my partner applied for Anthropology (linguistic) and Linguistics. Tulane is our top choice, so I'm super nervous about getting in/getting funding! My GPA is okay (3.35 for unofficial transcript, probably gonna be 3.5 by final transcript - it's mostly my freshman year weighing me down), as are my GRE scores (QU: 150, QA: 160, W: 4.5), but I've got 2 major research projects, 2 internships, a small business (unrelated to the field of study), and even kinda-sorta a published paper under my belt! Plus my statement of purpose was good (I hope), and my LORs were amazing, or at least my professors thought highly of me... My POI showed significant interest (I think, he seemed to like my research ideas, interests, and what not, but just kept encouraging me to apply), as did my partner's, but I just don't know if I can make the cut! I just wanna know! It's hard enough hoping for your own spot, but I'm riding on my partner getting in too!!! Anyone else super stressed?

  3. I finally accepted an offer (Woo!) and am already preparing to schedule my first semester of courses. In addition to my RA position, I'll be taking three courses my first semester. One is a mandatory pro-seminar so I don't need to worry about that, but I am free to choose the additional two. I am a cultural anthropology student, and in looking at the course catalogue, I see there are quite a few classes that are very relevant to my proposed research that I think would be really interesting to me. I am definitely going to contact my POI for advice on what classes would be best for my first semester, but for current grad students, what types of classes did you schedule for your first semester/year? Would it be better to schedule courses with a somewhat broad focus like "Ethnographic Field Methods" over a course with a much more specific topical focus? Obviously I have quite a few years to take classes, but I want to make smart scheduling decisions for my first year in the program. Let me know what you think!
  4. Hi All! Does anyone have any recommendations for a good cultural anthropology PhD program that focuses (or has faculty focusing) on digital/cyber anthropology? I know there are some digital anthropology programs out there but all I've found are for BA or MA. I've already received by MA and I'm looking to get my PhD. Any help is appreciated!
  5. Does anyone know of any organization or grant that offers funding for short-term or summer research projects for graduate students? So far my attempts have been futile--finding only programs for undergrads or for dissertation research. Thanks!
  6. I graduate in May 2011 with a Master's in cultural anthropology and my dream is to pursue my PhD, however, I did not get into the only Antho PhD program in my city. I'm married and I own a house. Therefore, I have to stay where I'm at for a couple years (hence why I only applied to the one local program). I'm planning on applying to programs for fall 2013 but, until then, I'm working in an unrelated field to save up money. My focus in anthropology is on cyberanthropology (particularly social media) and I'm managing social media and PR at my current job. So I could tie it into my resesarch interests in a way, but my work is no way research/anthropology related. My question is, how do I stay desirable to an application committee? Will it reflect negatively on my application if I've been working full time for a couple of years in an unrelated field? Is there anything I can do on an on-going basis that will improve my chances of getting in for 2013? Any help and/or advice you can provide would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!
