    what happened?

    Congratulations.

    I read an old post of yours where you considered history graduate school? What did you eventually decide to take in regards to languages? I'm at the odd point where I should be considering Latin but would rather take French and/or German at this point as a second-year. I'm even more worried that I might not want to study the Romans or ancient civilizations just because... I'll find more interests and that sort and it'll be difficult to specialize in the future. Heck, I've even looked at some sample language proficiency exams (from Harvard, Stanford and some others I think) and well, readability is important. I didn't think the passages consisted so much difficulty that would be akin to reading Les Mis

    I was just kidding chanX.

    mme: I talked to a professor @ my cc who did his phd history program at stanford and has taught for over 25 years and he said that the language side of the program is important but not as important and everyone makes it out to be. You have to be able to "get by" in the language but in no means are you expected to be proficient. When it comes to research he said that what he did, and what former students have told him they did, is get "close" to a professor. Take a couple classes with them, go to their office hours, just kinda BS with em and then bring it up and they'll be much more open to finding you a spot either with them or with an associate that they know.

    For the record, I've decided not to pursue the phd in history track.

    What's wrong with polos?
  • PeppersPeppers Registered User Posts: 1,772 Senior Member
    Polo's are preppish, and the woven ones seriously irritate my skin, but my wardrobe wouldn't complete if I didn't have at least one AE polo (sad isn't it)

    i love wearing polos, however, wearing them too often is not recommended. i'm in the east coast this summer and polos are everywhere...not too popular in LA for some reason.

  • hibiscuspinkhibiscuspink - Posts: 1,344 Senior Member
    Collars up = repulsive.
