Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
Hello H/A. I usually don't post here but I am in a bit of a quandary at the moment. I am looking to go to graduate school this next year. I applied to two programs last year but did not get in. I am not to worried, the programs I applied to were very popular and I must admit I didn't put the time or energy I should of into my application since I was doing it from Japan while teaching at the same time. Right now due to health reasons I have a large amount of free time and want to try my hand at the process again. I know I should also expand my search but find it kind of hard to figure out which programs to look for.
I am going for my MA/PHD in Japanese history with a focus on the Meiji Era. Probably working on the rise of Japanese labor and the industrialization that happened during that time period. Though I have a lot of interest in working with language history, too.
So my main questions are:
What are good resources to do research on different graduate programs?
Should invest in a few of the books about college/graduate programs from like Amazon.com?
What are some are some good resources to compare one program to another so I make sure I am applying to the correct programs?
I am planning on applying to 5 to 6 programs this year since I have both the time and knowledge from my application process last year. I already have my recommendation letter writers and such lined just looking for the schools themselves now. Thank you for any help and advice you guys can give me.
