Recently I wrote about 3 Secrets to Success when applying to graduate school. I received some positive feedback from a few folks including a suggestion to check out a blog written by Matt Might, a Computer Science professor at the University of Utah.
Matt’s blog is a treasure trove of useful suggestions. His posts are especially useful if you’re in some stage of academic life, from undergrad on up to tenured professor. If you’re interested in studying GIS at the graduate level the following blog posts are geared toward computer science but entirely applicable and spot on.
- HOWTO: Get into grad school for science, engineering, math and computer science
- How to get a great letter of recommendation
I recommend browsing his long list of articles for great tips on productivity, writing, programming, academia, etc.
