mutualist007 Posted November 23, 2010 Share Posted November 23, 2010 I am bummed because I am in danger of missing the deadline for GRE scores, BUT I think the misfortune may actually help me. It could delay my decision and help me rethink strategy retake GRE and score higher, and maybe get a masters and more research experience so that I have a more total package to offer when I apply. I know that most programs don't require a masters, but many of the current grad students admitted have them and beyond taking extra time, it can't hurt. Just depends on how much is allowed to transfer. Anyway my question is about the importance of geographic interest areas for "fit". How important is geographic reference? Is it more important than the actual methodology? I ended up finding another place to apply to which has a better fit in regards to an aspect of my research interests and in particular archaeology in the old world. What is more important?: finding the right lab, the right adviser methodology, a geographic specialty (like SUNY's) albeit with cobbled adcom for my fusion research interests. I need a com that includes bioarchaeology strong in osteology, archaeology of complex societies, and economic and or political anth. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
