I've barely posted here, mostly 'cause I really don't know enough at this point to be able to give any advice, but I wanted to post my appreciation for this site. I've learned a lot about the degree, the application process, and the uses for different types of qualifications. I also just got an internship with a professor who does research in my are of interest as a direct result of various pieces of info I've gotten off this site. I didn't even know the importance of an RA postion before I came here, let alone how to find one. So, thanks to all of you, and I hope to be able to pass along advice when I'm further along in this whole marathon process.
