  1. Hello, I'm in my second year of my Masters program as a Biology major and I have never done a research project and have struggled to make connections with Professors. I fail to find internships for biology labs and am afraid of missing the opportunity for one. I have felt overwhelmed and my adviser wanted me to pick a Professor to mentor me on my Thesis, which I do not have. I have a new adviser now and feel like I'm back at square one. My grades have been slipping from stress and me desperately clawing for a social life, my GPA was 3.21 and I fear it dropping further. I have been feeling overwhelmed when trying to find a thesis topic, it hits me like a brick wall and I don't know how to get over it. I am trying to become a Clinical Laboratory Scientist (Medical Technician) but I have no job experience. I've never had a job before. I don't really know what job to get as a biology grad student, and if I can even get one. I really need advice on this. My College offers a Non-Thesis route, but I have gotten conflicting advice on whether to take it. I don't want to be a researcher, so is it the better option? I have terrible networking skills. I fail to keep in touch with Professors and my previous adviser, who is teaching a course I'm taking, is not impressed; she's worried about me (I have terrible depression where I'm unable to function in class group work and I can't control my emotions anymore, she has noticed my declining grades and mood). How am I going to network and connect with Professors with this mental decline on my back? The mistake I made was joining a Masters program right after completing my Bachelors degree in Biology. I wasn't prepared.

    Research Year Abroad

    I'm midway through a history PhD and getting ready to spend the 2018-2019 academic year abroad. I will spend the majority of my time in highland Bolivia, where I conducted some initial research a couple years back. Last time, it was a lonely experience as I traveled by myself and worked in archives that do not see a ton of researchers or have spaces for social activity. I'm hoping this time to find some more social outlets and wanted to see if anyone has ideas for activities, expat organizations, etc. that can provide these opportunities for networking, socializing, etc.
  3. Hi! I graduated in 2017 with my B.A. in Neuroscience from a top 20 university. I've decided to pivot and pursue a PhD in sociology (going to apply for Fall 2019 admission), but I have a few questions about the application process. I was originally planning to apply for Clinical Psychology programs, meaning I was going to be applying to specific faculty whose research interests aligned with mine. Is sociology similar to this? Should I be contacting faculty within schools/departments I am interested in? Does prior contact with faculty of a specific department, even if it's just via email, weigh into acceptances at all? Thanks so much!

    USC vs NCSU

    Hi Guys, I got admits from both USC and NCSU for Computer Networking in Electrical Engineering for fall 18. I am very confused right now as the course in both universities are very good. Now here comes the tough part. The tuition and living expenses at USC would be sky high, whereas in NCSU it would be quite less compared to the former. Also USC being in LA there are more opportunities to get interview calls as compared to NCSU. Now NCSU is one of the best for networking whereas USC isn't very far behind. If anyone could give me a comparison of which one to join, it would be really helpful. Making this decision is literally tearing me apart. Please note that I do not have any financial aid from either of the universities.

    MPA Wagner vs MPA Baruch

    I am sincerely hoping someone can offer me insight on receiving and MPA-PNP from NYU Wagner vs MPA from CUNY Baruch. Originally, I was debating on attending Columbia for an MSW and Wagner for an MPA, but ultimately decided an MPA would be better to reach my career goals. I was generously offered a substantial scholarship from Columbia, first year full ride from Baruch, but no scholarship assistance from Wagner. When I attended Admitted Student Day at Wagner, I was blown away by the current and incoming students, faculty, and curriculum (specifically the Social Innovation and Impact Investment specialization). It seems like a good amount of the NYU Wagner grads are working in similar, if not the exact, positions I dream of, but is attending NYU Wagner worth the inevitable loans? I am not able to confidently make the same statement about Baruch, because they did not have a specific list of the jobs their graduate students obtained upon completion of their MPA's. Baruch lets their students tailor their curriculum once their core requirements are fulfilled, as opposed to specifically choosing a concentration, which is very appealing. However, there isn't much I would want to change about NYU's MPA-PNP Impact Investment specialization. I want to attend the school that will provide me with the best curriculum and network to achieve my end goals, and I genuinely am not sure if one school is better than the other in this aspect. They both seem like incredible programs, so I know I can't lose choosing one or the other, I just want to make the most informed decision possible. The financial burden of NYU Wagner's loans vs a free first year at Baruch weighs heavily on me. Does anyone have experience at either of these schools in regards to networking, job obtainment, or utilizing faculty networks? Will NYU loans be worth the burden because of the job opportunities their network opens up, or do both schools have equal networking/job opportunities? Is one school more heavily integrated in NYC's organizations more than the other? I would also love to hear any pros or cons you experienced during your time at Wagner or Baruch! Any input is greatly appreciated!!
  6. Hi All, I plan on applying for grad school in Fall 2018 to pursue my MA in communication (I plan on pursuing my PhD and going into research and teaching). I sent out about 6 emails to get in touch with professors I'd potentially be interested in working with. I built a rapport with 2 of them. One is at CSU Long Beach and the other at CSU Fullerton (relatively close to each other). I plan on visiting the area next month for a few days and I've scheduled meet-ups with the both of them. I'll also be sitting in on one of their classes. I want to build stronger relationships with these two professors and I want to ask the right questions. I'm just looking for advice from anyone else who has visited potential mentors in person before applying to any schools. I really want to make the most of these meetings, but this is totally new ground for me so I'm not sure how to go about my interactions. All comments appreciated. Thank you!
  7. Hi I am in the process of completing a bachelors degree in computer information systems with a concentration in network systems. my problem is I can't seem to find a masters degree program that I am eligible to apply for because of the classes I have taken. my degree is a bachelor of business administration degree not a science based one (it's the only computer degree offered at the college in my country) I would like to attend graduate school in Canada in a program that has a focus on networking. Does anyone have any advice or ideas? So far I've been looking at: dalhousie: applied computer science dalhousie: internetworking carleton: information technology , network technology university of Alberta: mint uoit: computer science york: information technology

    Studies of food in small social gatherings

    Dear All, Does anybody know of either: Studies conducted surrounding the role of food in social gatherings? Analysis of small social groups of loosely connected individuals? Small group = 4-20 individuals Loosely connected individuals = Friends of friends (or 'randoms') who on the whole have not met before "Analysis of" might include how frequently people participate in such gatherings, the types of relationships that are formed as a result, could be in public or private spaces – although my particular application will be to restaurants A nudge in the right direction for places to look would also be appreciated. Thank you in advance. Matthew @mattslight

Each university is different, so double check everything with information in your graduate student handbook. 1st year grad students: Fall 2011 BEFORE CLASSES START o Make sure your ASHA membership is current or become a new member o Buy a parking permit o Drop paper work off if you have a documented disability o Make sure your Tuberculosis (TB) test has been done within the last year o Network!
