    Fall 2019 Applicants

    In addition to the suggestion above, there are a handful of MA programs that fund students through teaching and grading assignments. Something to consider at least. The advantage is that you earn rather than spend money without losing time to an irrelevant job.

    They've invited people for on-campus interviews this coming week.

    Fall 2018 Applicants

    Hello, (prospective) classicists, I spent the last few months preparing and submitting PhD applications to lots of US institutions - most of them highly selective - and now I'm awaiting admissions results. Having lurked here for a while, I figured I'd post. Like most/all other this-cycle applicants who have posted in this thread, I'm bearish on my odds. My undergraduate GPA is very low, probably below the "floor" at schools who use minimum GPA cut-offs. Other aspects of my application all seem adequate, but I doubt they'll impress enough to outweigh the GPA. Nevertheless, I've been working toward a career in classics for a while now, and it seemed right to give it the old college try. I have no regrets, even if it's all a big swing-and-a-miss. Good luck to all the other applicants, and may we all keep our heads in the coming weeks.
