Applying to Grad School Excursus – North American vs Overseas Programs
In a comment to a previous post, Jay Crisostomo asked if I planned to address the issue of North American vs overseas graduate programs. Here is a link to three essays on the SBL website concerning the issue.
I myself only applied to North American programs so I really can’t comment on the process for overseas programs. If you would like to share your experience, please leave a comment below. The reasons I did not apply overseas mainly have to do with finances and family. It was my understanding that you needed to have all of the money together before applying for a student visa, and I just couldn’t bring grandkids overseas. Also, I didn’t really have any specific ideas for research when I was beginning the process.
