  1. Hello, I am new to the site, so apologies for any redundant questions, I think I initially posted this in a different place. I am a few years out of school with a BA in Poli Sci/Econ and an MA in Area Studies. I am looking to go back for a Comparative Politics PhD. I work in international development, not in academia or policy, so have no new research I can write about it my statement. I don't have anyone who can seriously work through my statement with me, and I feel like I am already asking a huge favor of professors writing my recommendations. I know my general areas of interest
  2. Dear all, Thank you for spending time reading this. I have been struggling with getting support from my current supervisor as she is the head of my department who is always very busy. I am a first year graduate student who started in this MS program last August and now it is only three weeks before I have to do a presentation to introduce my final project to all the professors in the department. I have decided on this topic agreed by my supervisor in late February and have been working on a research proposal for the past a few weeks. I sent her the proposal before but never got any feed
  3. What inspired your research agenda topic for you dissertations? I'm currently applying for a Phd programs and just curious to about how most people decide on a precise area or topic to focus on during their Phd matriculation. Do most people know the topics they want to explore during the application process or do most people narrow down their ideas after the first year in the program?
  4. Hi, I was wondering what people thought about someone picking a research topic (biomedical research field) on a disease that they themselves have or someone close to them has. Is it an additional source of motivation, or is it too much stress/pressure? Are there any ethical issues? Thanks!
  5. I'm about to finish my first year in a Psychology PhD program. Since starting the program, I've been doing some research on a topic that was related to my undergrad research, but it's time for me to start moving in a new direction, and I'm not sure how to figure out what I want to research. My advisor is very flexible and keeps encouraging me to explore something I'm interested in, but I'm so used to people just telling me what to research that I'm not even sure what I'm passionate about. I've also been a bit anxious and depressed dealing with the pressures of grad school so it's been particul
  6. Hello fellow students. So I have a question that will sound painfully naive. I just started graduate school this semester. I am in a Msc Biology program. I was informed this week that we have a meet and greet tomorrow. It will serve as an opportunity for the professors to give a quick over view of their research. The head of our department told us all to be prepared to say something about our research interests. I am unsure of what to say, my main interests are cancer and neurodegenerative diseases like ALS. Is this enough to tell the faculty? I don't expect anyone to have an exact idea
