Anonymona Posted June 1, 2014 Share Posted June 1, 2014 Hi all, Does anyone have a sense of how adcomms react to applicants who discuss professors and resources outside of the immediate department in their personal statement? I assume it varies by school and probably by person. I think I've seen one school that encouraged it, and I have yet to see commentary elsewhere. I ask because I'm interested in the sociology of food and nutrition, and quite often I find faculty and courses in anthropology, public health, etc. that would be excellent resources (and, honestly, are a huge pull factor for me). Is it a good idea to bring this up, or will it leave adcomms wondering why I'm applying for a PhD in sociology rather than an MPH? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
