  1. Oh, and good luck everyone, and congrats to those of you who've already heard good news!
  2. Just to set the record straight: these six students are being interviewed, and are not yet accepted. I believe the classics department plans to make offers to two of these six prospectives. They have already made one offer to a current classics post-bacc at Columbia. I cannot speak to the admissions process in CLST.
  3. New Sappho! (if you haven't already seen it - enjoy!) http://www.theguardian.com/books/2014/jan/30/read-sappho-new-unknown-poem-papyrus-classical
  4. actual_entity, congrats on your interview, and best of luck!
  5. I am reading Ovid's Ars Amatoria -- some of the worst love advice I've ever come across, lol!
  6. Penn's committee has met, or so I've heard. Good luck everyone!
  7. I applied in fall 2012. I started hearing back in late January. The latest request for an interview I got was sometime mid-February…
  8. Haha. It's not easy, but it's definitely possible! Just get ready to have a two-year-old who reads Pindar. YMMV.
  9. Do not retake it. Your scores are past the minimum threshold.
  10. IA with the OP. I got a 6 on my AW and I totally made stuff up. Citing an imaginary New York Times article is always a great idea.
  11. avoid cliches at all costs. be professional and demonstrate to the committee that you are a good fit for the school. keep the statement concise, clear. and compelling. good luck!
  12. Fair enough! Sounds like you have read quite a lot, so I was curious as to where you hope to end up for grad. studies. Best of luck!
  13. Hi George -- I am referring to the OCT (Oxford Classical Text). Per week: 1000 lines of poetry is pretty standard in my program, or about 25-30 OCT pages of prose. For super difficult texts, like Aeschylus' Agamemnon, the amount drops down to about 600-700 lines. IMHO, you should have two years of upper levels before tackling survey, and should have experience with both prose and poetry authors. Good luck -- and feel free to ask any other questions.
