  2. I have PhD offers from Princeton, Maryland, Penn State, and UC Santa Barbara. I feel blessed to have the offers I do, but I have no idea how I am going to decide between them. Help!
  3. Hi, I recently got accepted into Ph.D. program at the University of Rhode Island and received an invitation for the graduate open house. The event will be for 2 days. It's important because funding decisions will be made after the visit. Can anyone give some idea about what one can expect in such events and is there anything important I need to focus on? Thanks in advance.
  4. I had applied to all MS programs but was recently accepted as a ma in geology. What is the actual difference within a department besides not having a research based thesis?
  5. 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!
  6. Hi all -- I have a question for those of you on the far end of the phd tunnel, or perhaps some of your who even have experience (or heard of people) that have had their field research component delayed. I was brought on to a research group last year in anticipation of our grant being funded to continue some of the lab's previous work in Antarctica. My adviser has a horrifyingly shocking success rate with grants (in 25 years he has never not had PI funding), which is why he brought me on before we had official confirmation. A long series of events later (including major funding uncertainties at the NSF), and we were unfunded this season. I am very fortunate in that my university guarantees funding for 5 years, and we will resubmit the grant, but the earliest I can get to the field is midway through my 4th year. There is plenty of work for me to do in the meantime on samples already collected, but I was looking forward to doing my own work and actually learning some field skills. Because I'm still early in my career, I could leave my university with a masters and go somewhere else. Any thoughts? Does the long delay warrant leaving? I'm really quite bummed because I chose this researcher for their fieldwork style, but I don't want to sell myself short and stay when I shouldn't.
  7. I don't know what to think, it seems like all people have already get a response either rejected or accepted, but not me. I have applied to PhD programs in Earth Science at six schools of which I got rejected from the two that weren't my best fit. However, I'm still waiting to hear from Washington, Rice, Maryland and UCSB, but at March 6th I haven't heard anything yet. Today, I am feeling like shit, severely anxious and completely hopeless! Should I give up on my waiting and assume that I got rejected from everywhere? I don't know what to expect
  8. Hey Y'all! So I recently applied to Cal State LA, Cal State Chico, San Diego State, and San Francisco State for their masters in geology/geoscience. Did anyone else apply this month before the march first deadline? Anyone know when is the average time we will hear back if we applied this close to the deadline? any one know the difficulty of acceptance too? I am super nervous like many of y'all any info is great info
