What should we look for in a college as a History major?

Hi, I’m trying to help my son figure out his path to and through college. He is a history buff and his goal is to get a PhD Or doctorate in history. During our research we found a lot of Grad programs and I’m wondering if there are any specific programs or courses we should look into for undergrad to start the way. Any feedback would be appreciate! Thank you!!

Letters of Recommendation

I have just started my grad school application for Genetic Counseling but am not very confident regarding the 3 letters of recommendation I need to gather. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and my own social anxiety, I have had a hard time making any connections with professors. Classes have around 300 students so they have little to no memory of me. I've e-mailed the grad program about if letters of recommendations from my supervisor at work could be considered (currently an HR intern). I have also reached out to a professor I recently had last Spring. Is there anything else you would recommend for me to do?

Graduate school funding - any tips for students with gap years caused by covid-19/family responsibilities?

I wish to go to graduate school, hopefully finishing my PhD one day, returning to universities to teach students and research further into what intrigues me. However, financially, I am not capable of funding my studies while supporting my family as well. Do you have any advice for those who are looking to get into graduate school after gap years, and how to fund graduate schools if accepted? Thank you.

I need some help figuring out my plans after college!

This question is very specific to me, but may help others in a similar position. I am a junior in college studying health science with a specialization in biomedical science. I really want to become a medical technologist (not a technician). In your opinion, what is the best path to accomplish this? Should I receive an associates in MLS in order to get ASCP certified? Should I go to grad school for lab science? Is there a related graduate degree I can receive that will still allow me to work in a lab (preferable hospital/clinic lab)? Thank you! #health #career-path #medicallabscience #medicaltechnologist #labtechnologist #graduateschool #laboratory #labscience #student

What are the steps into becoming a High School Counselor?

Hello! My name is Mariela and I am currently a second year in college. My declared major as of now Criminology, Law and Society, but I'm planning to transfer under a Sociology major. Before I didn't know what exactly to do with a Sociology degree, and I know I want to do something with kids. I finally decided that I wanted to be a high school counselor. So I'm planning to double major in Sociology and Education, and go to graduate school. Would this be a good start? Also, what other steps should I take or need to do? #counselor #high-school #highschoolcounselor #school #sociology #education #college #university #graduateschool #transferingmajors

Advice for PhD seeking

I am currently a junior undergraduate student at the University of Washington and plan to pursue a PhD in the genomic sciences. I have experience in research, with over a year in three different labs. However, I am worried that my major makes me a less competitive applicant to programs such as Genomic Sciences. I am majoring in Public Health with minors in Bioethics and Anthropology. I was wondering what do you suggest to make myself a more competitive applicant? Are there any projects I should take on to demonstrate my skills? #graduateschool #bioinformatics #research

Is it worth it to double major in psychology and neuroscience?

Right now, I've declared my major as Psychology (B.S.) and I'm thinking about adding a Neuroscience major. I'm very interested in the biological basis of behavior, down to a cellular/molecular level. However, I know it would take a lot of effort, time and money to declare an additional major. Will I have an advantage if I double major in both for graduate school and for my future careers? Or, am I simply overworking myself? #psychology #college #major #neuroscience #graduateschool #employment #college-major

Are scholarships worth it?

I applied to numerous amount of scholarships when I was in undergraduate school and I received one that was through one of my professor's friend. However, the ones I applied online from all of the scholarship search engines came up blank. I am now applying to graduate school and I am wondering if there is anybody out there that have actually won one of these scholarships? Are they worth the time I am spending applying or would I be better off just picking up another shift at work? #college #scholarships #graduateschool #payingforcollege

What is the difference between medical school and graduate school in terms of biochemistry?

I have been trying to find detailed information as to how both are different but most websites either give the superficial information or they only talk about how they are similar. I do not know what path to choose so I want to be able to know the difference between the two. I know medical school is expensive and mind-breaking but the degree has higher value and you get to be recognized. Thing is I don't want to be a doctor I want to be the one performing research and test trials. On the other hand, graduate school focuses on research and the price is durable but the value of the degree is less in a way? So like what is the difference...#medicalschool #graduateschool #biochemistry #research
