Film and Media Studies 2010-2011 Applications in Humanities Posted December 15, 2010 Hello all! I want to wish everyone best of luck on their applications. I finally finished applying, and I wanted to see if a few others could weigh in on my chances of getting in anywhere. I'm really nervous and I'm starting to freak out... -I have 3.97 GPA at a small, liberal arts college (4.00 in Film Studies, my minor. Major is English. Taken about 8 film studies courses). Will graduate with Honors thesis, summa cum laude BA in May 2011. -Was a SPUR scholar in Film Studies at UCLA for Summer 2010 -Have one publication, one forthcoming in a professor's book. About 4 conference presentations, two of them at national conferences. -Glowing, detailed letters of recommendation from professors who know me very well. -Teaching assistantship for Sexuality & Film course this past fall. -Started a Film Club on campus, film Critic for school newspaper, lead discussions for international film series, etc. -GRE 610V (88 percentile), 660Q (64 percentile, although I've heard that the Q doesn't matter too much), 5AW (84 percentile). Anyway, I'm nervous because I'm not from a large school like others (although I've heard that this could help because of the intensity of discussion, writing courses, etc.), and I'm only earning my BA. I've applied to: -Indiana (MA) -Michigan (PhD) -NWern (PhD)--but do they take some for MAs as well? I didn't realize that they did that. -Chicago (PhD) -TX @ Austin (MA) -UCLA (MA) -Wisconsin (MA) What are my odds of getting in at any of these places, and do people know the admissions stats for any of the above (and when they respond)? I'm especially interested in Indiana, NWern, Michigan, and Wisconsin. Thanks for all your input! It is much appreciated! I hope that everyone gets in where they want Sounds like you've got a great chance. If your writing sample and SOP are solid I'd say you've got a strong package.
