  1. Hey! So I am in the process of applying to graduate school in the fall for marine biogeochemistry (chemical/biological oceanography). I had a TERRIBLE semester in my last semester of college (Dec 2017) where my GPA went from a 3.45 (3.58 with my AS degree GPA incorporated) to a 3.16 (not including my AS degree GPA). I got 3 D's (when I am a straight A/B student) mainly because I had a major death in the family, I was overwhelmed, and had a TON of serious mental stuff going on (depression, anxiety). I am SUPER stressed out about my applications at this point and don't really know what to do about it. I retook one of the classes and got a B but the other two were incompletes that my professors kind of screwed me over with. One of the professors is working with me to fix the D to a higher grade but still... I am STRESSED and I don't know what to do about this since I already graduated. I have a ton of theoretical (aka modeling) research experience in my UG, took a gap year to travel to Thailand for research in my field where I created and implemented the methodology within my lab group, and I am going to start research in a lab this summer working DIRECTLY in my field (ocean acidification research). I have STRONG, super strong, LORs and I am going to retake the GRE this summer (because I took it that semester and while my scores are average, I know I can do better).
  2. Hi everybody, I am starting a masters program in the fall and I am wondering if Im having a normal experience for picking a thesis. I have a pretty strong idea of the area Id like to study. Im interested in remote sensing in intertidal areas with an emphasis on understanding the impact of sea level rise. I got into a Marine Science program that has access to a lot of folks doing various work across different aspects of marine science including remote sensing but my advisor is a marine mammal and GIS specialist. For some reason or another, my advisor got the impression that I would be interested in working in wetlands. There is a research team that she is coordinating with that is already doing UAV RS wetland work and she really seems to want me to do research with them. I am interested in the UAV part but really am much more interested in intertidal areas. I will probably go on and do a PhD after my masters but Im wondering what I should do? Should I just do the wetlands project? Its part of a NOAA research study and the funding, resources and support are already there. I would get a lot of support but its not what Im really excited about at this point. Should I stick to my gut and really push to do an intertidal project? Or should I just do the wetlands work and if Im still interested in intertidal areas find a lab for a PhD project that will support intertidal RS. Also, my advisor said she really doesn't recommend people coming into a masters program with plans for a thesis, that they should take a semester or two to see what is even possible before they pick something, so I am willing to admit that I am probably jumping the gun. I also feel like Ive gotten off on the wrong foot with her. I really like this advisor and the program does seem like a good fit otherwise. I do feel a little annoyed that I am being pressured into the wetlands research but I also realize that sometimes for a masters program its more important to just get a project done. Thanks SF in the bay area
  3. Hey all! I'm posting to see if there are any other people on this board who are going to attend a graduate program in Marine biology and related topics starting in the Fall of 2017. I got into a school that I was very interested in; I'm excited, and I wanted other people to talk with about the field/their schools! I'm also very nervous as I'm going from a chemistry background into a biology heavy program, and I hope I'll be able to keep up.
  4. I have seen only one result on the results search. Just wondering if anyone else has heard back!
  5. I have applied to the marine biology Ph.D. program at UNC Chapel Hill and haven't heard anything back yet. The status on the website is "submitted". I guess at this point I should take it as a rejection. However, no one has posted anything related to admissions to this program in the 'result search'. Should I contact the program and ask them for an update?
