Hello everybody! I’m another newbie that just joined this awesome community and I wanted to introduce myself. I will also be starting the program this upcoming fall and am currently looking around trying to find out as much as I can about it. I’m so excited that there’s a Livejournal group to talk with!
I’m currently playing around with my schedule, trying to decide what works best, because I’m not sure exactly what I want to specialize in yet. I read in an earlier post (which was extremely helpful, by the way) that it would be a good idea to limit myself on the number of core classes I take in the first semester, so I’ve been looking at a lot of electives. The website says that you can take 6 ‘appropriate’ courses outside of the school and I was wondering what they meant by that. I was thinking about taking a Spanish class or two while I was there, but I have no idea if that would fit at all. I’m rather ignorant as to the workings of graduate school.
I was also curious about orientation. The website says that it’s going to be on August 22, but I was wondering if we had to sign up for advising times beforehand. I remember when I started UT that I was bombarded with letters every week about this and that, but I haven’t received anything since my acceptance letter, so I’ve been worried I might have overlooked something. Do we find out our advising times after we go to orientation?
This is actually my first time posting on Livejournal, so I want to apologize in advance if there are a bazillion mistakes. I really hope I get to meet some of you in person this fall. Thanks for listening!
I just this minute joined your iSchool livejournal community so I wanted to introduce myself. I’ll start the program in August 2007 but will be volunteering this summer at the Center for
I enjoyed reading some of your old posts about courses and profs to take or avoid. I’m sure I’ll be asking for your tips and advice on that kind of stuff later this summer.
Meanwhile, I’d like to connect with some of the old or new infostudies folks who are hanging around
