Hi! I’m Dave Mumby. Before reading about my credentials, I just want to emphasis how passionate I am about helping students achieve their career goals. To be completely honest, this work has been so much more fulfilling than my research career. I have loved guiding students to reach their full academic potential and as my research career is coming to an end, I hope to continue to support and students through the complex process of applying to grad school.
Now here is some of by bio: I am a professor at Concordia University in Montreal, Canada. I have played many roles throughout my career, including academic advisor for undergraduate Psychology students, graduate supervisor for Master’s and Ph.D. students and I have also been on many selection committees in my department.
I am the author of Graduate School: Winning Strategies For Getting In. This handbook, which is now in its second edition, dispels common myths and misconceptions about graduate school and what it takes to get in. It explains what students need to do beyond the classroom in order to succeed in getting into graduate school, with unique insights from an insider to the admissions process. I use this blog as a way of adding additional content along similar lines to those of the book.
For the past few years I have also been offering personalized consulting services, which allows me to provide customized advice to individuals who may be thinking of applying to graduate school or professional-degree programs.
