MyGradSchool Blog: It all begins

Well here begins a new resource to University and College students seeking information about applying to and surviving grad school. I hope it will also serve as an outlet to discuss higher education issues.

Here’s a bit of my bio: I am a Associate professor at a University in Montreal, Canada. I am a academic advisor as well as a research supervisor of Ph.D. and masters students. I have written a book on getting into grad school successfully, it’s called: Graduate School: Winning Strategies For Getting In With Or Without Excellent Grades. You can check it out at amazonI have been on many selection committees in my department,  and I am a regular contributer to the web site that features advice from experts on the topic of applying to graduate or professional school.

And lastly, I was once a student myself, applying to graduate school with a lot of the same questions that I see students have today when it comes to applying and also surviving grad school. I studied in both Canada and the United States and earned my Ph.D. in 1992.

Here are a few other links that describe a little bit about who I am and what I do:

  1. Dr. Mumby,
    I just want to thank you for the speech you gave this afternoon, it helped me tremendously and answered many questions that I have in the back of my mind. I was scared that professors would take it the wrong way if a took a sabbatical year to write my specialization project but you made me realize that it was probably the best thing to do.
    Thanks again,
