My husband was told by the DGS of his current PhD program that they googled his name and the name of all other applicants that made the short list before making an offer.

How often do you think this happens?

There is nothing scandalous if you google my name (which is quite uncommon), but I don't know why, it still doesn't make me feel really comfortable! :rolleyes:

I replied to the other topic, but I was wondering what the sociology people think. Do you guys feel adcoms might judge you unfairly based on your appearance? I certainly would hope not considering our discipline, but human nature makes me think they might.

God I hope so! I mean not that I need any more advantages because of my stunning beauty but sometimes I wish we were allowed to send a photo along with our applications! Hahatongue.gif

lol! sorry to intrude in the sociology thread, but this made me laugh so much..

I mean I've been fantasizing about sending a video-SOP à la Elle Woods since the beginning of this whole process!

Just imagine the fabulousness- "... That's why you should vote for me, future academic of the class 2010!" *cue bikini-shot zoom-in*
