Publisher's Summary

Get Accepted Quickly Into a PhD Program in the Sciences: You want to get accepted into a PhD program in the sciences and you want to get stipends and grants. As a former program manager, I can tell you how to do it in a few, easy steps by sharing the secrets only application reviewers know.

To name a few: 1. Your application is reviewed by a real person who has a voice in the selection process the moment it is submitted. The department does not wait until the application deadline, so neither should you. 2. Programs do not want official transcripts sent to them during the application process. 3. Forget about the notion that the highest GPA and the highest GRE scorers will fill all the slots. 4. If you take the GRE more than once, your highest scores from each section of each test are used. 5. The single most important factor in getting accepted? Your ability to intelligibly discuss your research. 6. Your application is a snapshot in time. It will never update, not matter what you add later. 7. One of the ways the federal government wants their money spent is on underrepresented minorities. 8. Write intelligibly and excitedly about your research focus. 9. Marginal and mediocre applicants can be recommended for offers even when they do not have the 3.0 GPA, GRE scores in the 50th percentile or even speak English well. 10. If all things are equal, the tiebreaker is the letters of recommendation from people who can attest to the quality of your research.

    "Short and relatively sweet"
    If you could sum up Get Accepted Quickly Into a PhD Program in the Sciences in three words, what would they be?

    This book is short and To - the - point


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Get Accepted Quickly Into a PhD Program in the Sciences?

    I got some good ideas from this book - it's one of the few that talk about applying to jobs in Academia


    What three words best describe J.D. Huntington’s voice?

    The narrators voice had a bit too much of a nasal quality to it which grates a little, but not bad overall.


    What’s an idea from the book that you will remember?

    What stood out for me was - Getting to know members of the graduate school, having a stand out cv and one's ability to intelligently discuss and articulate one's research in an interview are probably the most important things


    Any additional comments?

    Has the author any plans on writing a book about getting ahead in academia? interview techniques and so forth..I think there is a gap in the market for an academia focused book like this.
