27 Sep LSA Webinar: How to Be a Successful Grad School Applicant
Are you an undergraduate thinking of applying to a graduate program? A graduate student thinking of applying to a different school? Then this webinar is for you! Representatives from five major linguistics departments’ admission committees, along with a recently successful applicant to a graduate degree program, discuss their experiences and then take questions on this critical decision point in one’s academic career.
The panel was moderated by Mary Bucholtz (University of California, Santa Barbara) with student panelist Jamaal Muwwakkil (University of California, Santa Barbara) and faculty panelists Marlyse Baptista (University of Michigan), Ashwini Deo (The Ohio State University), Ruth Kramer (Georgetown University), David Pesetsky (Massachusetts Institute of Technology) and Christopher Potts (Stanford University). After brief introductions, the panelists provided their perspectives on some of the major FAQs about applying to graduate school.
The panel took place on Friday, October 5 from 1:00 – 2:30 PM US Eastern Time.
