  1. Hi everyone, Has anyone ever started preparing to apply to grad school (PhD more specifically) and then decided to not apply or decided to apply the next year? If so, what was the reason?

    Interview Prep

    What do people recommend as far as preparing for interviews? Obviously, know your own research. I know the work I've done at 2/3 institutions like the back of my hand. The 3rd was a 3 month internship I'm more vague on, but am currently reading the publication that came out of it. I have my first interview next week, and I know I should know the research of the people I'm interviewing with (I have my itinerary). 1/5, though, works on something pretty removed from my interests, and another works mostly with techniques I've never used or read much on. Should I have talking points for each person, or is it okay to not know as much about some if they weren't people I requested/aren't doing what I'm interested in? Also, generally, what should one do to prepare? I'm interviewing for neuroscience programs, by the way.
  3. Dear All, This is my first post on this forum. I have been working in Global Health for past 6 Yrs. and now decided to get my second masters in Public health. The first one I have is in International Business. I got accepted in the PG Certificate, Public Health long distance course at London School of Tropical medicine and Hygiene. My goal is to eventually roll this certificate into an MSc in Public Health. I am looking for recommendations on how to prepare for long distance courses, how many modules are doable per year? Any suggestion and your personal experience stories are much appreciated. Thank you!

    Preparing for Clinical PhD Interview

    So it looks like a few people have heard some positive news from grad schools about upcoming interviews starting next month. How is everyone preparing? I know that I did some initial preparation when I was completing my applications, but I'm not too sure where to go from here. Every POI has published material, ongoing grants and recently completed work, lab websites/department biographies... But what is interview day/weekend really about and what kinds of questions should we be preparing for and what questions should we be asking as we are on these interviews? Happy Holidays!
  5. Okay, I got into the program I wanted, and Lord willin' and the creek don't rise, I'll be starting in the fall. Now what? I work full time and have community commitments, so I'm plenty busy, but I still have graduate-school on the brain and want to direct that energy somewhere useful. My experience with grad school is based on those I interacted with 5 years ago as a physics undergrad. Now I'm going for a PhD in science education, and the world of social science is new to me. From what I understand about the program, it's all classes first year, then classes & TAing second year, then after that research. But all the big grants one might want to apply for (NSF fellowship is on my radar for the future) expect you to already be involved in research. Should I be trying to set up an "in" in research before the program starts? Would it be appropriate to start contacting professors now, or should I wait until the fall? My only thought so far is to email the profs I met on the interview day and ask if there's a book they'd recommend I read. Any thoughts or insights are much appreciated!
