Suggestion for tailoring you "fit" to specific advisors: do that and make sure the person is taking students...but also do NOT just go by their recent publications to figure out their areas of interest!

As an inquisitive seven year old, I would often look for old photo books under my grandmothers bed. One day, I looked under and found....all three of these books. First, let me express my terror upon moving a pair of old orthopedic shoes and seeing this: » 11/01/14 11:07am 11/01/14 11:07am

Oh, fun pseudo-science by the incredibly biased! I especially loved when this book took that "information" and added a few lines in like "Many Homosexuals end up wearing dippers just like babies". It's just way more accessible info here, you all. Dude has an entire chapter entitled "Homosexuality is a Predictable… » 7/12/14 8:28am 7/12/14 8:28am
