Date: Dec 31 1969
Major: History/Histories (art history/etc.) (This Major's Salary over time)
In response to the individual who dislikes the graduate history program at SDSU, I am replying in agreement. I applied to the graduate history program and never got a response back because my application was not received by the graduate committee on time, despite the fact that I TURNED IT IN BY THE MAY 1ST DEADLINE. The graduate adviser is the most incompetent faculty member in the history department. And the school is very much cheap and does not make the effort to hire tenure track Ph.Ds with loads of experience. My advice is to give some of the part timers full-time status (there are some individuals who are worthy of that honor). I doubt that some of the retired professors are
broken men and women
because two of them had quite successful teaching careers and one of them happens to be my favorite professor.

In the end, U. of San Diego, UC San Diego, and Pepperdine are on my top graduate school lists. SDSU is one of my last picks for grad school because I simply refuse to work next to a graduate adviser who cannot figure out or work with the graduate admissions office to find out why or how my application never made it to the committee on time.
