I messaged some potential advisors on Sept (got good comments but they do not accept students directly, just through a commitee). I thanked them for the encouragement and I told them I would mention them in my SOP. I have applied to 15 schools and just 1 interview until now. Should I message again these professors to say I applied and idk, wish them happy holidays? Might look desperate but would like to hear some advice.
Hey y’all! I am in my senior year of undergrad speech & looks like I will be ending this semester with 2 C’s (possibly B’s if a miracle happens) I am scheduled to take my GRE Friday & feel fairly confident. If I don’t score well I can always re-take it. I am just concerned about getting into ANY grad school with C’s. I feel extremely discouraged & kind of defeated at this point. How possible is it to get into grad school with C’s? I feel really good with my LOR, volunteer hours & personal statement but I am just really starting to freak out. Any advice, suggestions, etc? Thank y’all so much!
Choosing between a Bio PhD program at Northeastern and a BME PhD program at RPI. Both fully funded with professors of interest, but I'm torn between what might be a more reputable school (RPI) further out of the way and further out of my comfort zone (coming from Boston College) and a school with more connections (NEU) but a less reputable program. I hope to specialize in regenerative medicine and eventually go into industry working in R & D or a biotech startup. My gut tells me NEU, but I also realize I'm heavily biased toward the familiarity of Boston. Freaking out a bit sonce decision time is only days away! Any thoughts?
Not that I think I'm going to get in everywhere, I really don't... But...I'm just not that worried about it. I feel like my life would be so amazing if I got in this year and started Grad School in the fall. I know I will end up in Grad School no matter what...so I just feel like, whatever happens, happens. I tried my best and that's that. After reading a lot of these entries I feel that I am a minority in not freaking out. Again, its not because I'm over-confident, I guess it may just be that I don't invest too much in possible life-changing events in fear of being let down. Who knows.. just a thought. Good luck everyone =)
