  1. Hello. I'm trying to see if I can get research experience somewhere in the world. Does anyone here know about a website where I can find paid internship opportunities for students from any country? I have already checked the ACS' website but most of them, if not all, are for US students. Thank you in advance.
  2. Hi! I am in serious need of help! I am currently a senior Psychology and Sociology major with no research experience other than the courses that I have taken in school. I switched my major to Psychology during the second half of my junior year. I wasn't able to acquire a seat in my school's psychology labs. I tried applying to summer undergraduate research programs, but I was either not eligible for the programs, or I was rejected. It may be too late, but does anyone know of psychology summer research programs that take graduating seniors? Any help will be much appreciated!
  3. Programs Under the Radar

    Just wanted to put my two cents in here when it comes to MFA programs and funding. Of course full-funding is ideal; I wouldn't recommend going in debt for an MFA unless you have a solid plan for a job post-graduation. BUT there are a lot of programs that don't make the full-funding list, but they do fully-fund most of their students. So you have to do a bit more of your own research rather than just relying on the lists of fully-funded programs, but you can still find programs that will fully-fund you, and where you have a better chance of getting in. EWU (Eastern Washington University) is one of those. I'm advocating for them because my time in the program was so wonderful that I want them to get the attention they deserve. They really want to be able to fund everyone, but they can't just yet. They do offer funding to about 75% of the students, and there are tons of opportunities beyond just teaching comp. You could teach literature, do technical writing, manage a lit mag (Willow Springs) a small press (Willow Springs Books) run educational outreach programs and coordinate a literary festival (Get Lit!), direct the Writers in the Community program (teaching outside the university classroom) and second year MFAs have the opportunity to teach creative writing (instead of comp.) So it really is worth your time to do a bit of extra research beyond the lists. It's great to aim for those really selective programs, but smart to put some of the programs that are a bit more under the radar on your list. EWU has around an 11% acceptance rate, and it's seriously an awesome program. Spokane is a great city for writers (poets especially) and really cheap to live too. Any questions about that program let me know!
  4. i haven't gotten any rejection email so I wanted to see if anyone had updates?...
  5. Hey everyone, I am finishing my junior year of college this week and have been seriously considering Law school. I always thought law school was incredibly prestigious like medical school so I never thought of it as an option. After doing considerable research I noticed it wasn't that much of a stretch. I had originally wanted to complete a PhD in Sociology however as of the late I have been increasingly interested in law school, specifically family law. I want advice on what I should do now, I just bought the trilogy bible LSAT books and will have most of the summer to dedicate to them. About me: I'm currently a triple major, sociology, psychology, and criminal justice. My G.P.A. is a 3.4 but I hope to raise it to a 3.5 by graduation (obviously admissions will not see the 3.5 due to the time constraints of the application). I will have published research by my senior year (this summer), specifically in the Journal of IPV. I've presented my research at different stages on panels at ACJS as well as ASA. I have worked a full time job as a Direct Support Professional for two years while in college, as well as a Resident Assistant. I've had minimal involvement with clubs but have taken a position as a communication-manager in one less interesting groups. I am also interning at DSS this summer, although not entirely relevant. I don't want to go to the top 20 Law schools, it's pretty clear based on my GPA alone I wouldn't stand a chance, however I was wondering what sort of advice people could give to someone who just began the search and how to improve my chances of being accepted. Thank you, Anything helps!
  6. I am a senior undergrad art history student in Miami, Florida and I am about to graduate with my BA. My grades are very good, and I'm interning currently at a museum where I help manage the docent and volunteer program. My plan is to take a year or so off after I graduate to gain some experience in the field, and I am looking into some paid internships and programs in London and New York. After this period of time, my plan is to then apply to grad programs. Is this a smart/viable thing to do? Does taking a year off look good to grad schools? Any suggestions, advice, or input is greatly appreciated!
