  1. I am moving to california and will be applying for residency for tuition purposes once I arrive. I was hoping to go back to my home state to visit my family for christmas, but I just saw that if I return to my home state on any of the breaks in the year before I am awarded residency I am considered as only being in california for school. How would the school even know if I went to visit my parents over break unless I told them? I don't really see how they could get access to the information...maybe they'll install trackers in our school IDs lol. Does anyone know how the school could find out if I went back to my home state? Are they able to look up plane tickets bought in my name or something? Thanks for the help everyone!
  2. New to this site so please let us know if we should be posting this opportunity information elsewhere. Our next deadline for applications is September 1, 2017 The Kimmel Harding Nelson Center for the Arts, located in Nebraska City, NE offers from sixty to seventy juried residencies per year to visual artists, writers, composers, and interdisciplinary artists from across the country and around the world.

  3. 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!!
  4. Does anybody know if the will send notifications earlier this year since the deadline was a week earlier than usual?
  5. Hi All, I apologize in advance for the story. Context is everything, of course. New poster here. I am a veterinarian by training who took an opportunity to pursue a PhD at a top tier institution. It has been a struggle, as prior to this I came from an almost purely clinical background, and had only limited experience in bench research prior to this. The experience so far has been suboptimal, and I have dealt with the common psychological problems that seem to go with grad school, but started seeing a therapist and taking care of myself better mentally, which has helped. Still, I have issues with my mentor, who is a prominent figure in his field, a powerful figure at the university, and who is paying my tuition (my entry into the grad program was unique; I came in on a postdoctoral fellowship for veterinarians which covered salary, but not tuition costs). The faculty member I initially had identified as a potential mentor bailed on me when the department said I could enroll in the program under the condition he covers the cost of tuition. I ended up with my current, very well-funded mentor as a result, and he currently pays my tuition. I did not get to rotate, and I did not feel this lab and level of mentorship would be a good fit for my needs, but I made the Faustian bargain of joining it in order to get into the PhD program. The result of this arrangement is that it is not practically or politically easy to change mentors, though it could probably be done if I raised enough fuss, but I'm frankly not keen on doing that. If I was at a lesser institution, I may have left the program already, but I realize I have a rare opportunity here, and completing the PhD would be beneficial to my long-term goals, which is a joint clinical/research appointment at a veterinary college. Part of my strategy also aimed to pursue specialization in cardiology, and I had planned to apply for veterinary cardiology residencies after my PhD is finished (which is still likely 3-4 years away minimum). A residency opportunity is really the only thing I would leave the PhD for, but even then, I don't necessarily want to give up this spot. I am considering applying for a residency in this next cycle, and there is by no means any guarantee I get a position, as they are quite competitive and it is a matching process. If I commit to the match, I have to accept a position if offered, or I am banned from the matching process for 3 years. What I am considering exploring is the possibility of applying for a residency, and, if matching, withdrawing from the program with the possibility of re-instatement following the conclusion of the residency. The policies of my graduate program allow for voluntary withdrawal with later reinstatement with the approval of the graduate program/advisors, but it's not necessarily a guaranteed procedure, so I feel I would probably have to document consent with them ahead of time. There is no explicit policy for interrupting a PhD for advanced clinical training, and a "leave of absence" can only last a year, so for a 3 year residency, withdrawal is likely the only strategy. Whether or not I would actually return is an open question. A residency could possibly give me the opportunity to apply for a clinical faculty position if any are available when I finish. A PhD is not a requirement for that. What the PhD could do, particularly given the level of institution it is coming from, is set me apart from other candidates and give me an edge in applying, and give me greater opportunity to engage in research and more advancement opportunities later. Particularly if there are no faculty positions available following a residency, I would certainly feel more compelled to complete the PhD. So, I'm torn. The residency offers me a real opportunity to do what I've always wanted to do, and the PhD is more of an optional addition, but I would really like to have the research training and the prestige on my CV for the skills and advancement potential I know it would offer me. BUT, if I had to choose a residency now or continue the PhD, I'm pretty conflicted. I'm basically try to have my cake and eat it too, giving myself a possible exit strategy from the miserable PhD experience while not closing the door entirely. Anyone been through an experience like this or done something similar? Advice or thoughts are welcome.
  6. 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--do I just start listing my "permanent address" as the place I will now be living? If I register to vote in my new state, does that mean I have to un-register (?) in my home state? Do I have to inform someone I'm leaving so I'm not contacted for jury duty back home? And how long do I have after I arrive to get all of this done? Any and all moving advice is welcome!
  7. I am finishing an MA in Political Science and have begun the process of selecting schools to apply to for my PhD. I have noticed that several schools (notably Berkeley) state something to the effect of " United States citizens and Permanent Residents are required to achieve California residency by the end of their first year in California to receive continued fee support." Most states define this as something like proving that you are "living in the state for a purpose other than education" ( or, "proving" something that is entirely false by meeting arbitrary state defined standards of reality) by attaining some degree of non-academic employment. I know that no one is taking a year off from school to work in Berkeley, California or Boulder, Colorado just to get residency so they can continue getting funded in a PhD program. Has anyone encountered this that can explain how this situation is usually resolved? TIA
  8. Hello, Grad Cafe folks! How do you spend your summers? I will have 1.5 months of free time that I would like to spend researching away (or, alternatively, participating in a summer school). I am looking for summer schools, and I am also looking for opportunities in different research centers. Hence the questions: 1. Say, you have connections in a research center. How do you write a letter? 'Hello, I am a researcher in... Looking for summer opportunities. Have you got any?' or should I go into specifics? Aka 'I am researching ..., and you have this professor, and I would like...' 2. Do you happen to know any not-so-expensive summer school in Europe? 3. What other opportunities are there?
