  1. Hi, I'm an embedded software engineer working in the wireless networking domain at one of the leading semiconductor companies in the world. After working here for more than 2 years (~27 months), I have decided to pursue an MS in Computer Engineering. CGPA: 6.67/10 (It might translate to a GPA of around 2.8-2.9) in Electrical and Electronics Engineering. GRE: 163Q/160V/4.0W (I am retaking the GRE again next month for a higher Quant score) TOEFL: 110 (Will be writing it next month. I got a 110 3 years ago but the scores aren't valid anymore). I addition to the above, I've received 4 awards from my team leads for working on some critical areas. I've submitted a paper in an internal company conference (not sure if this would matter in my applications since the work is completely proprietary to the company - so I may not be able to elaborate on it). I also have research experience as a summer research intern at one of the best research institutes for high performance computer architecture, here in India. The problem is that I wasn't particularly consistent in scoring during my undergraduate because of some issues beyond my control. In fact, except for a slight kink (upwards) in my progress during my third year of undergrad, I pretty much took a dive. I applied to grad school right out of college (~2017) and got rejected from all the 7 colleges I applied to. After some careful deliberations, I have come to the conclusion that it may be have been attributed to more than a couple of shortcomings from my applications: Not a strong enough recommendation or statement of purpose. GRE score (I had a 315 (159Q/156V/3.5W) back then) GPA (most obvious defect) Slightly ambitious college choices. Would the profile above be able to offset my GPA shortcoming and give me a short at some good colleges? Graduate studies is an expensive proposition for me. So, I would only be motivated to move forward if I were to get into a college with a strong standing among academic and professional institutions.
  2. What is the academic job market for Anthropology PhDs really like? How bad is it really? What do you do if you don't get a job? What is the situation in the different subfields? What about tier 1 universities in USA/UK? And what about lower ranked ones? Also, is there anybody here from India who has experienced the job search at home, whether they are trained here or abroad? I do not mean to snoop. I am considering grad school and finally an academic career in the social sciences, but I am trying to figure out exactly what I should go for. I find whatever little anthropology I know to be very interesting, but I have to take into account all the scare stories about the job market. Help would be really appreciated!

  4. Hello everyone, I am looking to apply to graduate school for this upcoming fall (2019). I would really like to find an M.A anthropology program with available funding. My academic interests coalesce around such topics as ethnohistory, ethnography, identity, cultural exchange, experience, and visual anthropology. The intersection between anthropology, critical history, and the dynamic human experience of the individual is central to my worldview and shapes what I envision for myself in terms of future study and research. I also have strong tilt towards South Asia, as I have completed numerous research programs in northern India. I also speak intermediate Hindi. Given these thoughts, I was wondering if people had any Master's programs in mind that they would like to recommend. I'm not opposed to hearing Ph.D program recommendations either, but it is the funded M.A programs I am having trouble finding. I am also open to considering non-anthropology programs that deal closely with the subjects I mentioned above. Thanks! Austin
  5. Hello everyone! I recently finished the first year of my phd program in Anthropology. My focus is in South India, and I was awarded a Pilot Research grant in order to go to India this summer and start making contacts/finding my future research site. Although I like the University I attend, and am grateful for this opportunity, I have not been given much guidance on what to actually do. I am leaving for India towards the end of August, and have selected a few sites to visit(my research has to do with Muslim's who participate in Hindu religious rituals), but at this time I do not speak the language necessary to properly communicate with people. One of the few things I was told is that I do not have to produce a paper or anything like that with this grant, but I would like to if possible. I have some friends in the area I will be going to, and it is through them that I have began to navigate my journey. I should note that I have already been to India 9 times, and so navigating around India is not my concern. Any advice would be great. Also, I do not have a background in Anthropology, and the Anthropology theory classes are not until next year, so I am also unclear on which direction to turn towards when writing about my upcoming experiences. Thanks in advance, Eugenio
  6. Hey everyone, My area is a bit niche, and I'm working on putting together a writing sample at the moment. I'm a first division BA, MA, Mphil holder from Delhi University, and I'm an ad-hoc teacher at the English department at Hindu College currently. I worked on participatory fandom cultures, fans as creators and the clash of signification between media producers and fans for my MPhil degree. It was a dissertation rooted in years of spectatorship - as an Indian fan in overwhelmingly white fan spaces dedicated to the consumption of Anglophone media, I was interested in documenting the kind of fan production and community I saw around me. Still, I've reoreinted my interests. Now I want to look at fanfiction written by Indian fans for Indian TV serials like Qubool Hai, Bepannah, etc. I'm interested in questions of form - very interesting things are happening to the form of fanfic itself. Driven by IndiaForums, Wattpad or Tellyupdates, Indian fanfiction differs in its familiarity with the established, informal 'rules' for formatting, style, length, classification, etc. Many are irregularly or inconsistently formatted. The users writing in are overwhelmingly female, as is the audience for most Indian soaps. TV serials deal with the drama of the domestic and the familial, and most fanfictions deal with the same. There's a vast degree of difference in users' competency in English, too. It is a rich corpus of fan production in an under-theorised and mischaracterised area - Indian televisual media consumption in the 'age of the internet' (which arrived much later in India, or, still is arriving in many parts of the country). I'm interested in both diasporic engagements with Indian TV fanfiction (as a guilty pleasure, a return to a certain ethnic identity) as well as native Indian writers. To this end, I am familiar with both Western theorisations of fandom (Jenkins, Booth, Hills, etc) and am studying archival material for Indian traditions of fan writing I am looking for the right departments to approach! Frankly, a little overwhelmed at all the choice. I'm not picky about Top 100/50/whatever. I'm applying for Spring 2019. Any and all comments, suggestions and barbs are welcome.
  7. I am from India and I have taken about 70 courses in my bachelors. Do I have to fill the details about every one of them to complete my masters application? I am applying for Master of Science in Robotics, System and Control.
  8. Hello everyone, I am hoping to apply to a graduate program in anthropology this calendar year. My research interests, broadly speaking, involve perceptions ofcommunal identity in South Asia and its intersection with historical, political, religious, and ideological processes. However, I am also interested in religion, spirituality, and cultural interpretations of the "human journey". Given these broad topics and my interest in South Asia, I am looking for recommendations for suitable graduate programs to which I might apply. Any feedback would be appreciated. Thank you! Austin J.
  9. Hi, I am a student of an Indian Institute majoring in Mathematics. I want to pursue my MS/PhD in Statistics in US. Please evaluate my profile and suggest me suitable universities. Details:- GPA 7.9/10 (I don't know the 4-scale equivalent) GRE General test- Verbal - 153 (61 percentile) Quant - 166 (91 percentile) AW - 4.0 (60 percentile) Will appear for TOEFL next month. Thanks in advance.
  10. I'm currently doing my Bachelor's (BTech. - Final year) in Biotechnology in Manipal Institute of Technology, India. I'm quite keen on applying for graduate programs later this year, colleges like UCB, UPenn, Columbia, UCSD, Cornell and also considering Yale, MIT, Stanford and the works. I will be giving my GRE exam shortly and also have completed a 2 month internships in a pharmaceutical company and a premier university (Indian Institute of Tech) in India. I will also be interning from January 2017 at the Centre of Cellular and Molecular Biology (CCMB, Hyderabad), another renowned lab. I had previously briefly worked on a project in college to devise a diagnostic kit and am currently working on another (in collaboration with the Department of Virus Research, Manipal). I am hopeful of publishing a paper on the latter, sometime later this year. Being from India, I'm severely lost with regards to the requirements expected from top universities as mentioned above in terms of GRE scores, GPA requirements and lab experience & LoRs in general. Given my lab experience and a 8.5 CGPA (Indian standard) without publications, am I being realistic in considering these colleges for my master's? Would working in few more well-established labs and applying next year improve my chances?
  11. I have a three years BA degree with specialisations in Economics from a college affiliated to University of Pune, India. I was wondering my chances of getting into a good Masters in Economics Program(Msc. or MA or Masters in Economics) on a scholarship. Here are my details: Grades: 66% cumulative of three years GRE: 161quant 157verbal and 4 AWA TOEFL: 107 I am specifically looking at universities where they take 3 years bachelor students. Some of the universities I have selected are (McGill University, Boston University, Tillburg University, Edinburgh Univerisity, Monash University) What are my chances in these universities?
  12. Hi All, If you are an Indian you would know the struggle to convert your university gpa (or cgpa as it's popularly known) to a 4-base gpa. According to some formulae I converted it to 2.6 (mine is 7.93 on 10-base) and on another I found it was 4.0! My university is IIIT Bhubaneswar, a very young university (we were the second batch to pass out). So I am not sure how my gpa would be evaluated as even other private universities in our neighbourhood reward nothing less than 9.0 to almost 90% of the undergrads.
  13. Hello everyone! I am a journalist from India and have received acceptance letters from Emerson College in Boston and Villanova University, Pennsylvania. Expecting a few more responses. But, I want to choose from these two institutions. The course at Villanova is Masters in Communication and at Emerson it is Masters in Communication Management with a specialization in Political Communication. At Villanova, I can study the same subjects as Emerson. If anybody could help, I'll really appreciate it!

  15. Hi! I'm a biotech student from India. Does someone around here know about universities, or know a place where I can find out about them, that offer online learning courses to students in India. I am looking for very specialized courses and so not very hopeful on this front. Again, What? : Online Learning Courses by Univs FOR? : Grad Level, MEMS/Comp Science/Nanosciences/Syn Bio (I realized how impossible it is just as I listed these topics out.) Available to: Students in India Alternatively: Any POST GRAD courses in Biotech and fields that have an interface with Biotech?
  16. I searched everywhere, but I can't find a single professor in the US that focuses on Bhutan. i want to get a graduate degree in South Asian Studies, but I want my focus to be on Bhutan. Is this impossible? Does anyone know of any universities that have someone who specializes on Bhutan?
