The best part of the application process was all the support I received. On 'day one' at Berkeley, I was told that all incoming students are 'unofficially required' to apply for the NSF. I was also told that the Social/Personality area has had a very successful history of graduate students receiving the NSF. At that point, I thought I would soon join the portion that doesn't get funded. But at our weekly Social/Psychology graduate student meeting, I was paired with two prior winners who helped me tremendously with proofreading and editing. The department also kept a binder of essays by NSF winners: these successful essays were there for me to peruse as I pleased! How amazing. My advisor also gave me feedback on my research proposal, and suggested substantial revisions to it. I believe that I would not have received the award had I not adopted these suggestions. I was very lucky, indeed!
