Hi everyone, I have a query regarding the academic associate job. I just want to know whether working as an academic associate can really help to get into a Ph.D. program. I would be very thankful if someone could guide me in this matter.
Hey there;) I'm an Indian student (recent graduate in Economics) currently applying for the position of Research Associate with MIT's Poverty Action Lab. I hit a roadblock while filling their online form. At one place they ask for a scan of my Undergraduate Transcript. At another, they ask for coursework and grades received. How is coursework different from syllabus exactly? If my scores are what they want, it's already in the transcript, right?:mad: In college, we had an additional 'honours' programme (unlike most universities in India) where we undertook additional projects outside the 'main' syllabus. These projects and essays received grades. Is that what 'coursework' might be referring to? After all, we get marks only and not grades for our core subjects anyway. If anyone understands the fine semantics of Western academia, I'd be really grateful for a little advise. Plus if you know what kind of coursework J-PAL values, I really wouldn't know how to thank you. Adios! -Abhishek
