Hello, guys! I'm going to apply for MA in Canada (University of British Columbia) and I've got a few questions about it, so maybe smb had similar experience. I've got Russian diploma in Medicine (M.D.) and also it is veryfied in Israel. But I'd like to change my speciality and apply for MA in Science (kinesiology in priority, biology, genetics are also possible). I looked through application requirments and it's said there that I'm able to apply for these programs because I've got a diploma in related field.The problem is that all these programs are connected with researches and I don't have any background in research, just a few weeks of work in clinic. However, I have to find a supervisor before application. The main question is: is it possible to find supervisor without any background? I'm going to join volunteer programs in lab, visit conferences and so on, but I actually don't have appropriate credits, experience and documents. I thought about applying for PhD in Russia and spend there a year or smth for experience and credits, and then apply for MA in Canada, But it would be such a waste of time... So please tell me about your experience in situations like mine, I'd really appreciate that!
Hello, I am hoping that some of you can maybe give me some advice on this topic. I will provide you with some context so hopefully it gives you an idea of where I stand. I have applied for the Kinesiology PhD program at Georgia State University for Fall semester 2017. This is my second time applying but my first time I applied right before the deadline and didn't have any academic advisors on my application plus I was a few points below on what they wanted on GRE (program wants 155 V and 151 Q/ I got 150 V and 158 Q). One of the professors in the program was gracious enough to reply to an email and told me that next time I should try and contact a professor in the program for potential advisement and retake GRE to attempt higher score. So I have applied again and retook GRE. I had both a professor in my program and advisor as recommendations. I also met with the professor who emailed me about my application right before Thanksgiving. During the meeting we talked about why I wanted to be in the program and experience in lab which is limited. I did a lot work in labs while in undergrad but my master's program was online thus I didn't have opportunity to work in lab or do a thesis. I did mention to him that I have had a article published recently in a professional journal which seemed to help my case a little bit. I mentioned to him my GRE scores (after taking second time top scores: 153V 158Q) which he seemed to be okay with. I asked whether or not there was potential for him to advise me for my PhD. He told me something along the lines of "There is potential but funding may be an issue" which he proceeded to tell me about other opportunities such as teaching assistantships. Then he took me around to show me the labs, introduced me to some other professors and talked about some of the work he did. Now to my question. Although I felt like the meeting went well with this potential advisor I feel like I didn't get that hard "Yes" answer I was looking for. I emailed him a few days later thanking him but never got a response. I figured it be good to give him some space so I haven't reached out since then. I feel like I should try to schedule a second meeting to ensure he will support my application, right? If so, what would be the best way to go about this? I tried to schedule meetings with different professors in this program via email but got a limited response. The way I scheduled this meeting was just by calling his office and luckily he answered. Like I stated, I felt like the meeting went well. I think he really understood that I was serious and willing to work hard to obtain my PhD and understood my passion for academics and kinesiology/physiology. I just want to put myself in the best position to get accepted. Any advice would help me tremendously. Thank you so much!
Hi- I really want to get my graduate degree from a respected, accredited (both the school and the program are accredited) online program in Public Health, Human Movement, Exercise Physiology, Health Promotion, etc. I have worked in nursing for the first 30 years of my working life and then obtained several certifications from the American College of Sports Medicine, the National Strength & Conditioning Association, and the American Council on Exercise. I had a private studio after I left nursing, but wanted to use the experience and the 12 years I had of nursing education. I combined the 2 professions, if you will, and targeted people with disabilities tap into the many benefits of a well-rounded and safe exercise and nutrition program. Does anybody know of any liberal or state school that is not too expensive like ATSU that has an online program in any of these areas? Since this will be my 3rd career, I am thinking I would like to finish my working years either as a teacher, or a manager of a state health program, school health educator, or a person in charge of developing and implementing programs for grade school kids, seniors, high schoolers, or anybody in between.
