  1. Welcome everyone to the 2021-2022 application thread for political science! Discuss the application process, ask questions, post results when they come out, and anything else related to admissions this year. Good luck to you all!

    My language test waiver got approved by Columbia!! whoo (thank god because that test is like 5 hours and I have done enough fill-in-the-preposition and multiple choice questions to boring but ambiguous texts in high school English classes to last me a lifetime)

  3. I'm applying for fall 2022. I'm incredibly nervous because I graduated undergrad 7 years ago! I'm applying to top-ranked programs (for a really wide range of reasons) and my undergrad degree in English was from a mid-sized state school and my MBA is from a small state school. I've applied to conferences this year as an independent scholar but have not heard back. It's been a challenge applying so far out from getting my degrees!

  4. Greetings folks, As we head into the chaos of application season I just wanted to plug the Philosophy Admissions Spreadsheet for anyone who is new to the forum and may not have encountered it previously. More or less I track the admissions requirements for programs (mostly) in the US and Canada. (If folks can help fill in the gaps for places in the UK, Australia, and any other country though go for it!). I am also in the process of moving things over to a website but that'll be a bit of a longer goal. These requirements include: deadlines, cost of application fees, how to get a fee w

    I'd say it really depends on what kind of philosophy you're talking about. This might be stating the obvious, but I initially thought 'philosophy and literature' was a somewhat comprehensive field, when it's really not. However, I'm mentioning it because I initially thought of Berkeley as a good fit bc I'm interested in philosophy and literature, and even critical theory in particular, only to find out they really mainly do gender and race and not thaaat much else. You might want to check out the journal 'philosophy and literature' (maybe the words are switched around, idk), and see where the

  6. Thanks for starting this thread! Good luck to all of us applying this year, hope we are a successful cohort. @Fellow applicants: how many schools are you all applying to? I recently settled for 15, kinda worried that might be too many but I'd rather be safe than sorry I guess.

  7. Hey everyone! I'm a first year SLP student at UofA. I found this forum super useful last year, so I thought I'd try and reach out to you all this year to see if I can help. We're in the middle of midterm season rn so I am a quite busy, but please feel free to PM me if you have any questions about the school, application process for any of the schools I applied to (see below), McMaster's MMI, etc. and I'll try and answer as soon as I can

    HGSE 2022

    Hi everyone, I'm a current HGSE student here and want to push everyone to really think through how HGSE, or even a graduate degree, would fit into the rest of your career. I know you all are probably excited at the opportunity to come to a great university, but that doesn't imply that all of its schools are great as well. Why exactly do you all want to come to HGSE specifically? Why are you using some random US News ranking of Top Education Graduate Programs that arbitrarily ranks programs? What kind of research have you done in looking at programs? Do you know what courses you want to ta

  9. Hi everyone! Back for round 2 this year. This year, I wanted to prioritize applying for schools who allow or even encourage a dual concentration in Fiction/CNF. I was hoping someone around here may know a reliable list for schools where this is common or expected. Off the top of my head (and could be completely wrong here), New Writers Project at UT Austin requires this, but I have forgotten most of my knowledge from last year. Any help here would be much appreciated!

  10. Thank you both so much for your thoughts, particularly about funding! This is all super helpful, especially about PTS...its intentional living and abundant opportunities in practical theology, etc. Thanks again!!

  11. I don't know where you are based, but I do know that many academic publishers offer internships. Off the top of my head, I recall Princeton, Oxford, and Cambridge offering internships (paid?) in the NYC area. I would think experience in academic publishing is probably more important than a PhD to obtain a job in academic publishing.

    HGSE 2022

    Hello everyone! I am a final student and am planning to graduate in February 2022, I want to enroll in HGSE because this year the GRE is optional and as an international student applicant it's really hard for me to get a decent GRE score in just a few months learning . If you look at the stats, do you think not including the GRE score in my applications would make a big difference? Program: Ed M. (LDIT), concentration in Language & Literacy GRE Score: - didn't take GPA: 3.7 (undergrad), communications science - currently only working on a thesis but the score will not have much effect
