Testimonials We only have one goal: We are SO proud of them and want to share their stories!
I take acting and improv classes and actively work on my public speaking skills, so my talks generally receive praise.
I have a massive amount of writing experience compared to most applicants. Oh, and two years of full-time work experience as a writer.
I have 6 eager recommenders and have encountered a number of cosmologists hearing good things about me from other scientists before meeting me, so I have little doubt that LORs will be my biggest strength.
Not sure how much impact this can have, but I am a preceptor for calculus-based physics, worked as a math and language arts tutor at public inner city schools for two years. I also mention that I am good at graphic design in my CV, which should be evident from my talk slides in the portfolio that some schools accept.
Received two extra fellowship offers after I declined a spot in their program. The fact that I got about as many acceptances as rejections, in my view, shows that I picked the right range of schools.
I reached a little, had one safety that I would be more than happy to attend, and am happy with the result. As far as fellowships go, I participated in the proposal prep workshops that my school offered for the NSF and had a research advisor comment on it after a couple of grad students commented on my first drafts.
I had to track down one of my recommenders while he was on a trip in a remote location. The exchange I had with that advisor went a long way in making my application strong. It was pretty darn effective when the project idea was specific.

I don't think I've ever seen an audio debate as nasty as the one over Master Quality Authenticated (MQA), the audio-encoding/decoding technology from industry veterans Bob Stuart, formerly of Meridian and now CEO of MQA Ltd., and Peter Craven. Stuart is the company's public face, and that face has been the target of many a mud pie .
