got this email from my professor



why does life have to be so fucking hard netphoria

here’s the thing: i want more than anything to do this. some context: this is about a broadcasting class i’m taking that i can only take three times unless i move up and produce/direct games. i care about this way more than my other actual classes for my major because i’m a stupid idiot who doesn’t know what he’s doing

this needs to go well and it probably won’t

I suppose we can assume he's not the professor of using apostrophes where appropriate instead of the number one in superscript.

school has been closed since wednesday and won't open until 9/18. but two of my classes are online so fuck me i guess? it appears that we are expected to still complete everything even though no one else is

i mean it's not a big deal since i have power but some people like evacuated or have no power/internet. lots of students flew back to their parents

I took the GRE today. Got 163 verbal which is 93rd percentile. 155 quantitative which is 59th percentile. I was trying to get 320 total but I think if I take it again I will very likely get lower quant (155 was pretty miraculous, I guessed a fair bit). 155 is fine for quant anyway (for psychology programs), just getting above 320 looks good but oh well. 318 it is. only the very very elite schools will require 320, most are 310. there's also a writing section that takes some time to be scored but the topics were easy so whatever I get is probably the best I can do, so no use wasting any more time on this test. phew.

Just asked my possible #3 reference if he would write letters to me and he said yes.

Now I can get to applying. I think I have a good list going

1. University of Miami
2. Sam Houston State University (my sister works here in a different dept. but I'd have family nearby. very good forensic school)
3. Nova Southeastern (my backup. this school is expensive. other ones would give me tuition remission + stipend)
4. Fairleigh Dickinson University (NJ) - forensic program and my scores are signficantly above the average they admit. So this is one I'd more easily get into
5. University of Alabama - Birmingham - yeah I know it's Alabama but they have a great forensic program and the best stipend I've seen so far

I still am going through to see other schools. John Jay in Brooklyn is a good school but they accept like 4 people and living expenses would be very high. I prob will do one more though.

I am excite

tight. i just submitted my application to loyola yesterday. i still need to finish my apps for loyola marymount, university of southern california, university of chicago, and university of texas at dallas.

how do you ask your references? asking anyone to do anything for causes me tons of anxiety and then i feel like that anxiety influences how i ask if i do ask, anyway.

for clinical psych the references need to be very high quality. the three professors are ones i've cultivated relationships with, almost for this purpose (but not only). they are the ones who have really helped me develop and broaden my knowledge of the field.

my thesis professor, this is his job, and i know he'll write though i haven't formally asked. the other ones i feel like are doing me a big favor, because it will take them who knows, 1-3 hours of work that they are doing for no compensation. but advancing the field is important to most psych professors, so it's not too hard to find people.

my forensic psych professor, i took 5 of his classes and routinely asked questions and talked to him before/after class. i asked if he'd do letters for me at the end of the final class i took with him in spring. i just emailed him reminding him who i am and asking if it's ok if i give these schools his email address. he made it clear at the beginning of each semester that people should make themselves known through asking questions etc if they want letters, so he can put something more than 'got As in all my classes'.

the third professor, i've taken two of his classes and participate and talk to him. this is the professor i know the least. his classes are once a week so they are long with a break in the middle, and i made sure to talk to him one on one a bit. lots of people blow the class off or leave at the first break, but he's noticed and commented how i'm always there. we also write one page papers for his class that get somewhat personal, like "how might jung's theory of the anima/animus manifest in your life" was the last one. although i think that's one of jung's weaker theories, it still leads to talking about yourself on a deeper level than most classes. he just seemed like a professor who would be very enthusiastic about this sort of thing, and he was very nice, saying it would be his honor to write me letters.

so yes, especially part time faculty are doing you somewhat of a favor (or at least going above and beyond what they are being paid for), and I treat it that way. unfortunately if you haven't cultivated relationships yet it might be very hard to at the end. but i dont think other fields are as recommendation-heavy as psych.

fuck, i'm the worst. i hate starting and maintaining relationships. relationships are jobs, man. i've had it on my to-do list forever to head to the professor's (there are two) office to ask face-to-face because i hate email but i it just keeps getting moved up and i always find some lame excuse to myself.

i'm ok with doing it in school because i had time to adjust in small community college classes first. and i am naturally pretty outgoing when it comes to asking questions. of course in the rest of my life i suck at relationships but school is all about my brain and me have good brain for skool. it also helps to get good grades but not strictly necessary.

definitely agree you should do it in person. im applying for fall 2018 and UM wants everything by Dec 1
