anthrostudentcyn Posted August 30, 2015 Share Posted August 30, 2015 Hi all, I'm a senior anthro major and I'd like to apply to graduate programs but I have no idea where to apply or if I'm even a valid candidate. The basics: -Ivy League University, 3.75 GPAI don't have a ton of "research" experience in anthro, because my department has just about the WORST advising ever and they all basically ignore my emails and say "yeah just apply wherever, you'll be good". And they also haven't given me oppurtunities for research, but I am doing research with another anthro department in my same city. I've also taken PhD seminars at my university and gotten A's in them, because my advisor said I should do some graduate level work in undergrad to see if I like it. I have a bunch of internships and am specifically interested in anthropology of policy, specifically in Europe (did a summer course in said country and am taking the language now, not a common country), where I did do fieldwork. I'm also into more critical theory and the study of transgression/deviance/sexuality. What should I be doing now, and should I be applying to Master's or PhD programs? I want to stay in the Northeast, New York, New Jersey or Boston so all I know now is that Rutgers is a top choice. Do I have a chance or no?
