Incoming M.A. candidate here. I plan to get a terminal M.A. and not go the Ph.D. path and become a prof, so I was hoping to get practical experience during the semesters (volunteer work, internships, etc. 8-10 hours/week) so I could be in the best position to get a job at graduation.

The visit is next week and I still haven't received an itinerary for the visit nor lodging/hotel reservations. Would it be appropriate to ask for them? Being that the recruitment is across all graduate studies, I'm not sure (if even appropriate) if I need to email the department or the College o

I have never taken the exam. I will try to study for 2 hrs a day (I don´t think I can release much more time) following the Magoosh materials and Magoosh 2 month preparation schedule. Application deadlines for Economics seem to be on Dec 1st and require final official GRE results by that date. I am now wondering if I should schedule the exam in: a) Oct 10th in time for a retake in
