  1. Hi, everybody. I was advised to try to swap my SOP here on this forum. I'm applying to a PhD in English. Would anyone like to swap? It would mean the world to me. Thank you! Solidarity! ?
  2. They are way too expensive! Are there people on this forum that can give me some feedback? I would love a new perspective. My professor hasn't gotten back to me yet. ?
  3. I finished my statement of purpose, but I think I'm freaking myself out by thinking it's not good enough for submission just yet. Did you ever use an admissions counseling service to review your essay? I had a friend in grad school who used Accepted, but their packages are almost $1500. :O Please let me know. Thank you!
  4. Greetings, everybody. I hope this Friday afternoon is treating you well. I had a change of heart, and I figured I should login to the Grad Cafe to get some advice here.

I was away all summer, but I'm thinking of taking the test on November 10th. As a high school teacher, I'm a bit short on time. I do admit it's a bit of a roadblock, but I am willing to practice the GRE daily. Which sources do you recommend for studying? I have the ETS books. I've also heard of this company called Manhattan Prep. Thoughts?
  7. Greetings, all. I just started my account today here. I've had some friends from grad school swear by this site, so I figured I'd give it a go. I graduated with a BA in English in 2012, and I got my MA in English from NYU. I graduated back in 2014. For the last four years, I've been teaching high school English. My original plan is to go into academia, but I took a break to save up some money and defeat my debt. I know for sure that I want to study gender politics in twentieth century modernism.
