coinsky Posted January 26, 2009 Share Posted January 26, 2009 Dear All, I would be very grateful for any advice as you all seem wayyy more knowledgeable than me! I am a UK student applying to study a masters in Wildlife Biology at the University in Fairbanks. I have a GPA of about 3.5 - 3.7 (apparently the conversion is kind of tricky from UK to US.?) and I will be taking the GRE in a couple of weeks. Anyway, I contacted several professors whose research areas I am interested in and I am flying to Alaska tomorrow to meet with 4 of them over the course of next week. I am very nervous about this as I am crap at selling myself. Two of the things that are mainly worrying me are that I received my bachelor degree (in natural sciences) by distance learning, therefore I don't have any professors to write me a LOR.. And..the main thing is that I don't have any research experience, I did mention this loosely in my emails to the professors and they still said they would be happy to meet me but it seems that talking about previous research experience is what is most recommended in meetings. So am I going to sound totally stupid? Thanks for any advice anyone might have.. Fiona Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
