Christi Hill – U. of Tennessee
Christi is a 2nd year graduate student at the University of Tennessee working toward a Ph.D. in I/O Psychology. She earned her bachelor's degree from USI and came to talk with students about graduate school.
Christi’s key points:
1 – Time scheduling. Need to begin the process of selecting a graduate program early!
2 – Where to apply – If interested in a Ph.D. program, apply to a Ph.D. program. If you are unsure, try to go somewhere that offers both Ph.D. and Master’s Degree.
3 – What’s it really like to be a graduate student?
4 – Applying – need to email/call/ask questions, and having a prepared list of general questions to ask all schools
5 – Ask questions when applying to programs. Talk to faculty and as important if not more important, talk to the graduate students, again, having a prepared list of general questions is helpful!
6 – Take Statistics and R.M. courses, English/writing courses. Know your weaknesses AND work on them while it is cheaper in both time and money than after entering grad school!!
