  • Use the network: CLMA faculty are here to help connect you to jobs. When you apply for jobs or internships, do it in consultation with us, and we can give you introductions.
  • Start early: On assignments, job seeking, thesis topics, etc.
  • Spread out classes from the winter quarter: After having survived winter quarter 2008, I think that I would do things differently if I had known then what I know now. Many of us full time CLMA students took Ling 567, 571 and 572 all at the same time. Each of these has an intense work load, one assignment per week, so for much of the quarter, it was one assignment every 2 days (luckily the due dates were spread out over the week). For weeks 2,3 and 4 of the quarter, I spent a total of 72, 69 and 51 hours on these three assignments. I am not complaining about the work load. Each of these classes was very appropriate for the CLMA degree. I thoroughly enjoyed all of the assignments. It is just that I would not choose to take these 3 classes in the same quarter again. -- bobnew - 31 MAR 2008

  • Xerox the entire appendix A of the textbook and cut out each type and lexical entry. Paste them onto a gigantic piece of craft paper in a tree hierarchy so you can visualize the inheritance. I wish I had done this prior to just before the final exam.

  • This class requires programming in Python (check if still true for your quarter). Use a graphical debugger such as in an Integrated Development Environment. The free 'IDLE' may not be adequate. Better options include ActiveState Komodo and Eclipse.
