Hi guys! I'm going to FHSU for grad school next semester and I was wondering if there's anybody on this forum who can tell me what the program's like. I've talked with some of the faculty and the program director, but I'd like to get a student's perspective. What should I expect my first semester? What is the Herndon clinic like? How did you like your professors and supervisors?
Hi All, My first post here, I have received acceptances from the University of Florida and Kansas State University for the Ph.D. Agricultural Economics program. Could you guys please help me make a decision on the basis of program strength, liveability as an international student, and ranking for career prospects. My focus of research is on the impact of price volatility (of agri commodities when sold by the farmers in the market) on the vulnerability of small farmers towards poverty and rural inequality. It includes price uncertainty, asymmetric information, price variability, and farmer poverty themes. P.S. I have to make the decision quickly, so prompt responses highly appreciated.
Okay, I got the first rejection for this season of applications.....:-(. Just checked my KU profile and saw a rejection letter posted. Wow...so early....I don't know what to say..... Well, I guess, this is the start!?!
