I'm meeting with the heads of two graduate programs (one on wednesday, one on monday) and have no idea what to ask! So far, I only have "how many students find employment in this area after graduation" and "how many entering students complete the program." Surely there are a million I could ask, but the pressure is getting to me! 

 

Thanks :)

Very well, thank you! I decided on the MLIS. I'm starting in late May and I'm extremely excited!

KaylaBeanie, where will you be studying? I have my MS in Library and Information Science (archives concentration) from Pratt.

That's what I'm getting! Unsure of which concentration though. Right now I'm thinking either public (children and teen), archives (I'm an anthropology/history undergrad, and apparently a lot of my people track that way) or maybe even university. We get to do two internships (10 hours/week for a semester) once we've completed the 18 core credits, so I'm sure that'll help a lot in deciding.

I studied anthropology too! All the research anthropology required and experience seeking out and writing citations really helped with library school work. Best of luck and have fun!
