Question: as a junior student majoring in management science in one of top univerisities in China, i'm planning to go for a master degree in US after graduation. But besides GRE and TOEFL, many of my friends think i should prepare more, such as doing some research with professors and have paper published. some even suggest contacting directily with professors in the American colleges. I'm a little confused now and i don't want to put my effort in the wrong direction because i'm so busy. can any buddy give me some advices on what i should do to gain more advantages for my possible future studying chance? what do American professors pay attention to when they select overseas students?

Those are all important considerations - but the most important thing that gets overlooked by many is that they don't prepare to have enough funding for an education here in the United States. Things for a student can get very expensive and I would make sure you have the required capital in order to pay for an American College education first. Good Luck!!!

100% scam. There is no job. There is only a scammer trying to steal your hard-earned money. The next email will be from another of the scammer's fake names and free email addresses pretending to be the "secretary/assistant/accountant" and will demand you cash a large fake check sent on a stolen UPS/FedEx billing account number and send most of the "money" via Western Union or moneygram back to the scammer posing as the "supply company" while you "keep" a small portion. When your bank realizes the check is fake and it bounces, you get the real life job of paying back the bank for the bounced check fees and all the bank's money you sent to an overseas criminal. Western Union and moneygram do not verify anything on the form the sender fills out, not the name, not the street address, not the country, not even the gender of the receiver, it all means absolutely nothing. The clerk will not bother to check ID and will simply hand off your cash to whomever walks in the door with the MTCN# and question/answer. Neither company will tell the sender who picked up the cash, at what store location or even in what country your money walked out the door. Neither company has any kind of refund policy, money sent is money gone forever. When you refuse to send him your cash he will send increasingly nasty and rude emails trying to convince you to go through with his scam. The scammer could also create another fake name and email address like "[email protected] gmail.com", "police_person @hotmail.com" or "investigator @yahoo.com" and send emails telling you the job is legit and you must cash the fake check and send your money to the scammer or you will face legal action. Just ignore, delete and block those email addresses. Although, reading a scammer's attempt at impersonating a law enforcement official can be extremely funny. Now that you have responded to a scammer, you are on his 'potential sucker' list, he will try again to separate you from your cash. He will send you more emails from his other free email addresses using another of his fake names with all kinds of stories of great jobs, lottery winnings, millions in the bank and desperate, lonely, sexy singles. He will sell your email address to all his scamming buddies who will also send you dozens of fake emails all with the exact same goal, you sending them your cash via Western Union or moneygram. You could post up the email address and the emails themselves that the scammer is using, it will help make your post more googlable for other suspicious potential victims to find when looking for information. Do you know how to check the header of a received email? If not, you could google for information. Being able to read the header to determine the geographic location an email originated from will help you weed out the most obvious scams and scammers. Then delete and block that scammer. Don't bother to tell him that you know he is a scammer, it isn't worth your effort. He has one job in life, convincing victims to send him their hard-earned cash. Whenever suspicious or just plain curious, google everything, website addresses, names used, companies mentioned, phone numbers given, all email addresses, even sentences from the emails as you might be unpleasantly surprised at what you find already posted online. You can also post/ask here and every scam-warner-anti-fraud-busting site you can find before taking a chance and losing money to a scammer. 6 "Rules to follow" to avoid most fake jobs: 1) Job asks you to use your personal bank account and/or open a new one. 2) Job asks you to print/mail/cash a check or money order. 3) Job asks you to use Western Union or moneygram in any capacity. 4) Job asks you to accept packages and re-ship them on to anyone. 5) Job asks you to pay visas, travel fees via Western Union or moneygram. 6) Job asks you to sign up for a credit reporting or identity verification site. Avoiding all jobs that mention any of the above listed 'red flags' and you will miss nearly all fake jobs. Only scammers ask you to do any of the above. No. Exceptions. Ever. For any reason. If you google "fake check cashing job", "fraud Western Union scam", "check mule moneygram scam" or something similar you will find hundreds of posts from victims and near-victims of this type of scam.

To deposit the checks in your existing bank account and receive cash funds in return; To Forward the funds under the form of a money transfer; from what i can gather - you get a load of checks in your bank account from US citizens or possibly bogus ones. after a few days - you make a money transfer for a big lump sum t owhichever nigerian bank you are told to put it into. The cheques all get cancelled and the money gets paid back and you are left about $30,000 out of pocket i'm guessing.

Most professors look at the students interest in the materials. If you are truley interested and enjoy the material the professors can tell. Like the fellow before said American Universities are very expensive. I can tell you that as I am getting many student loans!

do not spend too lots time on the pubs and overlook your examine. additionally, do not spend too lots time examining which you omit the cultural journey. attempt to befriend human beings from different worldwide places. do not basically carry out with different human beings as a results of fact it somewhat is mushy. On some weekends, attempt to take a bus or practice journey for an afternoon out to make certain the country. do not wait till the top of the college term to make certain the land. the top of the semester would be busier than the initiating of the semester.

Here comes Mr. Big again. You're the biggest misogynist. Boy, you hate women so much you have remarks about their quirkiness under different categories.... women's studies now, psychology. Whatever. What would you do with out women? Life would be boring . It must be pretty lonely being you. Do you have vagina envy ? If the woman goes to the store unaccompanied by a authoritative figure of a man;she'll most likely be fooled by a guess what a ..... a glib talking salesman.. The next purchase,I think you're referring to a used car. Now, how are women suppose to know about cars. They don't find them very enticing. It looks like you're married. Who buys your clothes,' cooks your foods, and every other item in the house? Who's good in budgeting?Women are more practical. and have common sense. Actually when I go to the store, I'd rather be alone. My ex-husband used to side with the salesman instead of me. Women can juggle career and family and motherhood while you are only one -dimensional.. Except for the y chromosome, there's really no need for your existence. What do you think?
