About Dave G. Mumby, Ph.D.
Here’s a bit of my biography, with emphasis on those aspects of my experience that are most relevant to this blog:
I am an professor at a major University in Montreal, Canada. I am an academic advisor for undergraduate Psychology students, as well as a graduate supervisor for Master’s and Ph.D. students who share my interests in behavioural neuroscience. I have been on many selection committees in my department, and I am a regular contributer to the MyGraduateSchool.com web site, which features advice from experts on applying to graduate or professional school.
I just finished writing the second edition of my book on getting into grad school successfully. It’s called: Graduate School: Winning Strategies For Getting In. This book is full of advice on how to properly use your time as an undergraduate student so that when you are ready to apply to graduate school you have the background necessary to get into the right school and the right program for you. The book also takes you through the entire application process, step-by-step. Readers learn how deal effectively with each component of the application, and how to avoid making mistakes that keep so many other deserving students out of grad school.
You can preview it at amazon or order it directly from the publisher – Proto Press Publications. Just send them an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. It is also available in some University and College bookstores across North America. If you can’t find it at your bookstore, don’t be shy to let them know! You can also download the eBook right now at MyGraduateSchool.com. Amazon sells both a paperback and kindle version.
