  1. Has anyone ever hired a professional mover to move them across country? What service did you use? Did you have a good experience? Is it worth it to consider it for a cross country move?
  2. Y'all, I feel so lost right now. So, I got into my top choice for a PhD program, and I feel like there's so much ahead of me that I'm just stuck. Things are made so much worse by COVID and the uncertainty it brings, too! Can you all help me think through things I need to handle between now and starting classes? I'm a U.S. student doing a PhD program in Canada, so I know I need to handle a bunch of stuff with moving internationally (with my spouse and animals) and securing a student visa. I didn't receive funding automatically, but the program is super cheap (under $8500 CAD fo
  3. I’m curious to know what the biggest stressors are for y’all once you’re actually moved into your new place. Making new friends? Finding new establishments (e.g. healthcare, entertainment, personal care/wellness spots, food/grocery, etc.)? Being away from family? Something else? Obviously the moving process itself is stressful, but post-move days aren’t a walk in the park either.
  4. I have a few unusual questions about external fellowships/grants and (1) moving to a state different than your university and (2) whether people have had issues working outside work while on external funding. I'm a PhD student and was just awarded an external funding from a national agency (think NSF, Ford, Heinz, etc.) grant (it's confusing because the old funding program was a "fellowship" but the new program is a "grant", which may play a role in my question). I am (and have been for 2 years) been working in industry full-time. My advisor and university have had nothing to say about t
  5. Hi everyone, Congratulations on on your acceptance to graduate school! I was accepted into a PhD program in Social Psychology and have to move from California to Pennsylvania. And my university has not decided if they are offering online or in-person classes for Fall 2020 yet. The graduate coordinator said that a decision will be made in July. I'm hesitant to put down a deposit on an apartment without knowing the status of Fall 2020. Do faculty expect students to relocate if classes are online? Moving is hard enough, and I'm imagining the additional challenges with starting a Ph
  6. This is a big move for those with an interest in African American Literature (especially Zora Neale Hurston, Toni Morrison, Richard Wright) and Gender Studies - one of the big reasons I applied to Indiana. Good news for WashU, hopefully Indiana survives this. https://source.wustl.edu/2020/04/board-of-trustees-grants-faculty-appointments-promotions-8/
  7. Hello Everyone! I don’t know if it’s too early to be thinking about grad school but I graduate next year and I want to pursue my masters (Psychology) I’m not sure yet if I want to pursue that or pursue a masters in LMHC. Anyways, I have a couple of questions regarding the whole process 1. Did you apply to in state or out of state grad schools? How many schools should I apply to? (So far I have three in mind) 2. Money. I don’t have any undergrad loans whatsoever but would loans be worth it now in graduate school? Did FAFSA or school offer you anything? (I’m
  8. Coming straight out of undergrad and bringing my partner to whichever city I end up in. They will be getting a job as well. Any advice on housing? Can a partner live in grad school on campus housing? Grad Program: Biological Sciences
  9. Hi everyone! I recently got accepted into an experimental psychology master's program at Radford University. I'm super excited but quite nervous. I'll be moving from Florida to Virginia alone. Does anyone have any moving advice for me? Currently looking into places to live but it'll also be my first time living on my own, so any advice would be greatly appreciated. Also, any words of wisdom for grad school? Thank you!!
  10. I'm absolutely thrilled about being accepted into my first choice MFA program, and now I'm jumping feet first into getting ready. I'm going to have to move halfway across the country and experience fun "adulting" things like renting an apartment for the first time. This isn't the first time I've lived away from home, but in previous situations my housing was covered by scholarships. So, any advice for a baby adult who has no idea how to move efficiently across the country or what to look for when renting an apartment (specifically, I'm looking to rent in Michigan)? Any other genera
  11. Hello everyone, So far, it has been a stressful month for all of us with waiting, receiving acceptances or rejections and making life-changing decisions. As a current BA or MA student moving forward to another degree MA or PhD in FALL 2018, where will you store your stuff? I heard about summer storage before but not sure which companies are reliable or offer good deals. I will be moving from Center City, Philadelphia, PA to State College, PA to study at Penn State. Another option for me would be to personally store my boxes at U-Haul in Penn State since it is 4 hours awa
  12. I have recently accepted an offer to begin graduate school this august. I will be relocating from the east coast to the mid-west and I have never planned a move this big before My current option is to sell/move my furniture to my parent's house and ship my car from the mid-west. I would then fly to my new location and purchase a bed, bedroom furniture, and living furniture/kitchen stuff I also would want to pack my car with some things that I want to bring with me (clothes, shoes, vauum, some kitchen essentials) Does anybody have any other ideas/experiences in r
  13. Hi all, I am a currently an undergrad psych student who hopes to one day do their psychology PhD on treating psychopathology/trauma in ethnic minority communities and reducing racial disparities in mental health. The problem is the country I am in (Australia) doesn't have a lot of research/supervisors available in my interested area while the United States (the West Coast specifically) offer PhD programs with faculty that specialise in ethnic minority psychology and generally has more academic resources available (such as a Journal of Ethnic Minority Psychology). Basically while what I wa
  14. So I am from FL and am going to school online, but am soon planning a move to CO just because 1. I'm not tied to a physical campus and 2. I want to. I'm curious to know if I have to change state residency if I'm a student? I would rather not just for tuition costs and health insurance reasons (want to milk my parents as long as possible). This could just be a weird gray area. Curious to know if anyone did a similar move and to know what you did!!
  15. Greetings! I am an international student applying for 2016 Fall. I currently have some funding offers and some waitlists that I am still waiting on. Though I had a hard time due to the language barrier I somehow managed to apply to schools and and miraculously some of them want me! Now, I am thinking about moving across the globe and I am totally lost. I have focused on getting accepted so much that I never thought about what comes next. Possible five years to spend in different continent, different language, different lifestyle... Should I look for an apartment? Is it a good idea to live
  16. I'm currently in my second year PhD at Stanford. My advisor took a position at UCLA (and with that, an endowed professorship as well). I am a bit torn as to whether I should leave and follow him to UCLA, which would require me transferring out of my program and my PhD would come from UCLA. The benefit I see from this would be an increase in money to spend on research, and a chance to build a lab from ground zero and really be a driving factor in the direction of the lab. Plus, he's a great advisor. My other option is to remain at Stanford, pick a new advisor and move in a new direction. Benefi
  17. I'm getting ready to move out of state to go to grad school. Because I will have to apply for residency in that state for tuition purposes, I'm assuming that means I am moving there "for real." My question is, what exactly does that mean? Does this mean I will no longer be considered a dependent of my parents? And if I am not a dependent, am I required to have my own insurance (health insurance will be provided by my program, but I don't know about car insurance)? If I get my own car insurance, I guess that means I have to register my car in my new state? How do I make the change official--d
  18. I was accepted at University of Louisiana-Lafayette and I'll be moving there this summer from Chicago with my boyfriend and two cats. I am seriously considering using a pet relocation service that would handle flying my cats from Chicago. Has anyone had any experience with these services? My cats are a huge part of my life and mental well-being, so I am very nervous. However, sticking them in a car for 14 hours is not an option for me. I appreciate any advice you all might have regarding these pet relocation companies. Thanks!
  19. Hello! I'm lucky to have been accepted into 3 public health PhD options, and I WOULD LOVE your advice on how to go about this decision. My options are: 1) University of Washington with NO FUNDING, 2) the University of Minnesota - Twin Cities with full funding for two years (no work the first year), and 3) the University of North Carolina - Chapel Hill with full funding for two years, dependent on working part-time. I figure I could graduate with minimal debt from UMN and UNC, but might have to take out $50,000-100,000 of loans and/or work long hours if I went to the University of Was
  20. Hi! I got accepted into my top choice PhD at University of Southern California. I got a really lovely email from an advanced grad student who's in their fifth or sixth year offering to guide me through the program and field any questions I might have. They also sent a 'living in LA' guide that around six of the current grad students had made with breakdown of the neighborhoods they live in and all sorts of helpful information. Here's my dilemma, however: I'm finishing a Master's at Queen's University in Kingston,Ontario, Canada. I have a sublet here with my partner from May 1st to August
  21. There isn't a thread for Queen's yet, so here goes. I will (most likely) be attending Queen's in the fall, and I thought perhaps those of you who would be going there could join me in a discussion on the following topics: moving to Kingston finding a place to live size of the program you'll be attending next steps cool places to hang out and anything else interesting Okay... GO!
  22. In 64 days, I'll be driving cross-country with my parents to Delaware. My dad offered generously to drive our truck, which will also be towing our car. I last did a move like this when I was a kid, so I was too naive to know that I should worry about things like accidents, the car breaking down, thieves breaking into the storage portion, running out of gas, how to park so you don't need to reverse, etc. Now, these are all things I'm terrified of, even though I definitely trust my dad. He's a great driver. It's just a little daunting. We've slowly been packing up our apartment and getting ri

  24. Hi all, I'm working on putting together some information for our new students when they make their decision. Information so far includes a list of apartments, the process of registering for classes, how to order your text books, etc. I wanted to check in here and see what would be helpful for YOU? I was in your shoes just last year, and I want to help my program make things as smooth of a transition as possible! Thanks
