  1. nothing from NYU here except the initial "your rec letters didn't come in because interfolio is dumb" back in mid Jan.
  2. I did not realize it was funded! If it's funded and you don't have a better option on the table, ABSOLUTELY TAKE IT (IMHO, anyway). Even if you don't want to go there later, it gives you some time to do more writing and research in the field without having to worry about working a full-time job on top of it. I mean... unless you have an industry specific full-time job. Then it's worth investigating which is better for your CV.
  3. well, a couple years ago my muffler fell off mid drive. just fell off. it was replaced, but it looked like the problem had been caused by all kinds of rust and crap in the undercarriage. I just don't trust the quality of the vehicle TBH. and I'm prepared for sucky housing prices and traffic. I live in NYC. luckily childcare is not currently an issue for us.
  4. 1000% agree with and cosign this advice. when my prof interviewed me we barely talked about his work except in relation to how it fit with my work. It helps to know the keywords they're using, obvs, but I'd be more concerned with how their work relates to yours.
  5. Kind of both...? Right now we live in NYC. When we moved into NYC, I left my 2002 Jeep Liberty with my dad in Michigan and my partner brought his Jetta with us. We will definitely bring the Jetta to LA because he is in film and TV industry and will need it. I was thinking about bringing the Jeep but worried it is too beat up to make the drive, much less pass a CA emissions test (how tough are they? does my partner need to worry about the Jetta?) I'm thinking it'll probably be better to have my dad sell the Jeep to help pay for the move, especially so that we don't need to drive two cars down t
  6. Good luck with the partner's job search and the funding package. That is the main thing affecting our decision right now too and it is scary (esp. since my partner is more of a freelancer and will be starting in a new community). I hope everything works out for you!
  7. I would underscore some of what Pedanticistt said. 1. Extremely good fit with one of the profs. Such a strong fit that the Prof remarked on it too. I kind of feel like I'm mini!Prof. This is also the main reason I applied to the school and my proposed dissertation project involves looking at one of his earlier texts (foundational to the field) and examining how it can be brought current to modern technology and practices. I also think there are not a whole lot of other big profs studying this esoteric sub-field (fandom studies), so that makes the fit even more unique. 2. Prof remarked
  8. Cosigned. I hope you get in too, coffee_enthusiast. Hopefully some non GCer will turn it down.
  9. I know you already have one MA, but I am convinced my MA made all the difference. Without it, I was soundly rejected, with it, I was accepted to my top choice. It really does give you a chance to dip your toes into the field and it also shows the ad comm that you're serious and willing to work hard and do whatever it takes.
  10. So hey, just got accepted to USC Annenberg and I'd like to revive this thread. Anybody have dirt on the Annenberg Grad and/or Family Housing and what it's like? What's better that or living off-campus? Can a couple survive with one car or do we need 2?
  11. Congrats! Looks like we are going to be classmates! EDIT: Just saw yours pedantacist and anothergradapplicant! Hope we all get to study together.
  12. "just totally geeked out all over a POI at a school I can probably never go to. BUT HE'S BASICALLY ME. #nerdlife" -- posted this a year ago. just interviewed with this prof last week. life is weird.
