Birdcrazy Posted October 30, 2010 Share Posted October 30, 2010 My dream since I was in 6th grade was to study birds or work with birds somehow. But I have so many blockages along the way that I don't know what my chances are... they include: Kinda low GPA: 3.3 in zoology from Michigan State University, I graduated in 2004 Low GRE: 1070. plus it is expired Physically limited: I am not very strong and I am too heavy. I tried field work but one field study even let go of me early because I could not keep up. Emotionally limited: I have a mood/psychosis disorder severe enough it has caused trouble with past research and even on medications it still pops up. Most of the time however people can't tell I have this disability My strengths: I am a walking field guide, I remember facts easily. I also have good ears and know most of the Eastern United States bird songs. If you look at my transcripts, I did well in the higher level zoology classes, it was the lower level non-zoology courses that brought my GPA down. I also almost got into a grad program in Canada. What stopped me was the fact the prof. was new and he didn't realize that he couldn't have students yet!!! Suggestions? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
