Hey everyone. This is my first time posting and appreciate any help. I was a Russian Language and literature major looking to continue my studies in Graduate schools. I have been looking for an objective ranking of MA and PHD programs but haven't had much success. I have gotten a little lost in a maze of Comparative Literature, Russian Languages, and Slavic Language programs. I know this seems a little basic, but I am starting the process and would appreciate any help in identifying relevant schools. Some further information which may help. I am a New Yorker and would prefer to stay around New York. I graduated with a 3.8 GPA and have just taken the GRE where I scored 750 verbal 660 math. I think (probably like everybody else) that my personal statement and writing sample are good. Thanks for the feedback in advance and I appreciate any help.

Port33, considering you wrote this a while ago, I don't know if you even check this site anymore - but if you do, where did you decide to apply? And any other Slavic PhD applicants around? I myself am waiting to hear from the six programs (!) I applied for, already freaking out!

Ahh, so nice to see someone else! NYU, Columbia, Yale, Harvard, Northwestern, and Berkeley for me. Any idea on when we should start to hear back?

Not a clue, but hopefully before the anxiety kills me. I had an e-mail from a prof. at NYU last week (I did my MA there, so they know me) saying that the Comp. Lit. dept. would be meeting soon, but that doesn't mean much I suppose (this week? next week?). Post if you hear anything and best of luck!
