Grad-school-Filter-Again:

I've been accepted to PhD programs in neuroscience at NYU, University of Chicago, and into an MSc program in medical biophysics (with a heavy neuroscience focus) at the University of Toronto (most people reclassify into PhDs). The difficulty: 1) No one program is exactly perfect. 2) My partner-in-crime is a med student in Toronto, and she will be in Canada for minimum the next 6 years. So what's my best move, considering 1. I hope for a career in research (academia/industry) or science writing. 2. I could see myself spending my life with this girl (but that said, I am 25, for what it is worth) 3. I am concerned that staying in Toronto will limit my career opportunities [more inside]

Student loan hacks? Going to grad school (MBA) this fall most likely, and will be taking out loans for tuition and some living expenses. Any pro-tips or tricks of the trade for doing this most effectively? Also anything I should be aware of so that I don't screw myself over in the future?

SLP client's behavior interfering with therapy

Hi all, I'm an SLP grad student doing language-phonology clinic this semester and one of my client's behavior is getting in the way of therapy. She's 5.5 years old and is home schooled. It's quite clear there's no discipline at home and now I get to look totally incompetent for it. Any ideas about what I could do? This child spends most of the one-hour session mouthing off, spending 10 minutes on one sip of water to avoid work, pounding on the two-way glass (mom taps back, oy), and falling on the floor and telling me, "Me died." I've tried rewards but it seems she doesn't associate the rewards with anything. Just takes them and demands more. [more inside]

Can I let myself be happy now or should I guard my heart?

I know there are many variables at work here that neither you nor we can know at this time, but I want to know if I can be excited and happy or if I should try to calm myself down. I know many people here are phD's from the hard sciences as well and I am hoping you can provide some perspective. Here are the details: [more inside]

Help me not choke

After being out of school for a few years I'm now back for my graduate degree. It's taking some getting used to, and one of my final projects is a group literature review where we each take one aspect of our larger topic (universal accessibility of information resources) and look at a smaller facet of it.
