  1. Hi! I'm new to the GradCafe and I'm not sure if this is where I should post this, but I thought I'd give it a shot. I'm currently studying for the GRE (taking it Aug 24th), and I wrote my first practice Issue and Argument Essays. I'm looking for someone to go over, critique, and score them. They are very rough, as this was my first go at it. I stuck to the 30 minute time limit. I would appreciate any feedback! Thank you! Mac Argument 1.docx Issue 1.docx
  2. For those of your that are, or have applied to grad school in London, I have a question (probably a few). Do you write your statement of purpose with American english spelling or British english spelling? I would assume that since we speak the same language they would obviously understand, but what if they do not want to see American english spelling? The programs I am looking at and admission dept. don't specify this for native non british speakers, so should I play it safe with British english even tho it wouldn't be authentic on my part to please british administration, or should I just wri
  3. Since I will be out of school until the Fall of 2017, I decided to make my New Year's Resolution to read more frequently. I have always regretted not reading as much of the classics as I would like. I will be studying psychology, so I may want to avoid books on that subject, but I love anything educational and enhancing. If you have a list or recommendations for must-reads, please share them! I'm currently focusing on The Classics according to Good Reads.
  4. Hi all! So I got incredibly short notice to submit a personal statement for this fellowship I was nominated for. They want one page but don't say if it should be single- or double-spaced. Any ideas on what may be more likely? Is there any sort of precedent 4 grad school, like how undergrad was nearly all double-spaced?
  5. So, I've written my Statement of Purpose and Personal History Statement for a Ph.D. application. But there is ONE issue that I can't figure out, in writing these essays: Do I have a Master's Degree in Biology? Or a Masters Degree in Biology? Or perhaps a Master's degree in biology? Or maybe a master's degree in biology? Or is it masters degree in biology? If anyone could help me out with the proper spelling of this, I would be grateful!
  6. Hi Everyone I am a PhD student and English grammar has never been my strong point. I am keen to start/develop a thread and PVT with people who want to start a discussion about grammar. Supervisors don't really teach this. I am very keen to swap open access free resources that are intended as quick guides for research students. I got to be honest, grammar handbooks, I just don't have time to read them. The sort of stuff attached appeals to me as it is succinct. Anyone know of other similar short resources (open access) tailored for busy PhD students? Cheers
  7. I need help with grading my essay. This is my first time writing an issue essay, so please give me some advice on how to improve my writing. Thank you in advance! Question statement:"Governments are justified in circumventing civil laws when doing so is vital to the protection of national security."Write an essay in which you take a position on the statement above. In developing and supporting your position, you should consider ways in which the statement might or might not hold true. _____ Government is a group of people who governs and protects a community.
