FAQ’s about Applying

Why do you want anonymized documents?

The Aggie Transcript anonymizes all applications and submissions before reviewing them, to help reduce any bias that may be present. Every year we receive several applications, each of which takes immense time to thoroughly anonymize. Please help us speed up our application review process by submitting anonymized documents.

I’m interested in multiple positions, can I apply for both?

Yes! Please indicate in your email all the positions that you are interested in applying in. Also, please let us know if you would prefer one over the other.

 What does “priority consideration” mean?

Priority consideration means that your application will be considered in the application cycle for that quarter. After that date, applications will be held until the next quarter’s application cycle and considered as a part of that batch. Exceptions to this may be made on a case per case basis, however, this is a rare occurrence.

Does my writing sample have to be scientific?

No! The Aggie Transcript has received applications with a wide range of writing samples in the past. Some general advice for your application is to focus on the quality and style of your writing as opposed to the subject. If you would like examples of what is considered an excellent writing sample, feel free to check out any of our print editions!
