    I'll begin,

    I am currently in a junior college, getting ready to transfer into a university. I am planning on majoring in Kinesiology. I am wondering if anyone is in this field and has any knowledge of great programs to go to.

    After my BS, I am aiming to study at Samuel Merrit University: DPT program (SAFE). I live in Los Angeles and this wouldn't be too far from home and one of my influences/idols/career model, Kelly Starrett, graduated from this program. So if anybody has heard anything about this program/university, please, let me know.

    I appreciate your time,
    - Rene

    BTW, if you do not know who Kelly Starrett is check out his site,Mobility WOD , it is definitely worth it!!!

    Im currently in a Big Ten school, majoring in kinesiology. I might be transfering to chemistry or double majoring however, because Im more interested in doing research on steroids, nutrition, and hormones.

    I dont have much advice in regards to kinesiology yet, im still a freshman.

    I have an undergrad in Physiology and Sports Science.

    An MSc in Strength and Conditioning.

    Both from decent UK universities.

    I have various experiences working in performance sport in the UK but I am looking for a first full time position since completing my MSc studies.

    Interested in opportunities in the US or Canada as it seems there are better/more opportunities there and more money. Is it likely that a UK resident could get a position over there without having first completed the CSCS accreditation? Any advice towards securing employment in the US in S+C?

    I'm getting my degree in HMP in a private liberal arts college. I'm not sure what I plan on doing with the degree, though. I'm really just going to college to enter the US army as an officer, since I'm in ROTC. I pretty much just needed a degree I wouldn't hate to put work into.

    No advice on the above then?

    I know we have a few good S+C coaches on here.

    Emailed a bloke over in the US regarding a S+C internship over there for a few months, Jan - Apr.

    They provide accomodation and food, but no pay beyond that. Would be interested for the experience and contacts it would give me. Big gamble to move over there though and without reasonable pay.

    Is that fairly standard for an internship in the US?

    Feeling like options in the UK are a bit limited and this might give me a foot in the door into S+C in the US.

    Wow that's ballsy! Hope everything works out for you. I had an internship with the Philadelphia Eagles set up years ago but then I ended up joining the Marines instead.........bad choice.
