That would be nice though, damn.

Another related question, Do you think Affirmative Action play a part in grad school? I feel like possibly, some schools want to look diverse in STEM so they will offer me money to attend. This could be a pipe dream though. lol

ETA: Im def going to apply to schools with a "commitment to diversity." whatever the hell  that means. lol

Yeah definitely try that. I don't have too much anecdotal evidence to offer you on that, cause none of my closest friends went to grad school Cry lol

(Or the ones I do know went to HBCUs.. or we're not close enough for me to know the story behind their admittance)

My advice would be to apply to as many as possible, and to not play around and send them half-completed packets (like missing letters of rec, or transcripts etc)

Also, applying costs monayyy.. so save up so that you won't feel overwhelmed and feel like you need to make choices when the time comes.

How close are you to graduation/application time?

Applications are due this winter. I graduate in May. And I havent taken the GRE yetCry

fee waivers are the move. But even sending the gre costs money.

But  if you do decide to get the PhD, making the whites on the job call you Dr. Rose would be fun
"It's Dr. Rose!"LOL

One of my friends who is a Dr. went to a PWI and was about 1 of 3 negroes in the graduating class. I would like to think they take into consideration race especially with a STEM.

LOL

you get a certain amount of free GRE sends.. and then I think the additional ones aren't much if I remember correctly. The main expenses  that added up for me were the transcripts and mostly the app fees... so that's great if you get a waiver

Lmao!!!

I would set up a meeting with your advisor (or professor in your field that you have a good rapport) as soon as you can about graduate school and your professional goals. Heck, chat up your TAs as well about their graduate application experiences so you get a better idea of what to expect.

I still have some vocabulary flashcards for the new GRE in my closet I think. If you need them this year, let me know.

I wonder if it's common for the Zumanity performers to have sex behind the scenes


I feel like it's too sexual to NOT wanna do it with some other people who can contort like that
