I recently got this email from Nikitha Sambamurthy, blogger at Diff-EQ (tweeting here) and undergrad at Purdue who regularly attends my department’s seminar series. Nikitha is looking for some advice, and agreed to let me ask her question to teh blogosphere (below the fold).
I’m currently in the process of studying for the GRE and researching graduate schools and was wondering if you had any advice and tips on what I should do to get the process started. I’m interested in educational technology and am not quite sure how to find schools to apply to since different universities organize these types of programs in different ways (i.e. applying for education in one school and information technology in another).
Nikitha, I see two questions here — one is about the process of applying to graduate school, and the other is about what programs you should apply to (and how to find them). Internet friends, can you send Nikitha (and those who come after her who find this post on Teh Google) some advice?
