  1. I haven't heard from NYU English and I assume it's a rejection because I see that accepted people were called mid-February. I just wish they would respond already.
  2. I'm still waiting on NYU English PhD - but it seems that since they've already sent out acceptances - according to the results page - that I must be rejected. Or could I possibly be wrong?
  3. Does anyone know when NYU will notify? I've been shut out from other schools. English PhD program.
  4. I am wondering which professors I should mention in a particular statement of purpose. I already mentioned three professors, whose work is directly related to what I want to study. However, there is also another professor at the school, whose work I love in a different subfield area. I'd certainly want to take classes with him and his work connects to what I studied in college, but not to the focus of what I would want my PhD research to be. Should I mention him, too, or does that dilute things? Thank you so much! I have to submit this in a few days....
  5. I am applying to English PhD programs. I have a 145 in math, 163 in verbal, and 4.5 in the analytic writing. The math I am helpless in, but I've been told that they don't care about math. I thought I could do a little better on the verbal and on the writing based on practice tests, but under the pressure of the real exam, this might not be true. I am also struggling with the SOP, if anyone has any advice. thank you
  6. sorry, didn't mean to post in math

  8. I am struggling to get the statement of purpose done for an English PhD program. I was planning on retaking the GRE, but now I wonder if given my time constraints - full time job, deadline of the application - I'm better off working on my SOP. I have a 145 in math, 163 in verbal, and 4.5 in the analytic writing. The math I am helpless in, but I've been told that they don't care about math. I thought I could do a little better on the verbal and on the writing based on practice tests, but under the pressure of the real exam, this might not be true. As I mentioned, I am really having a hard time with the SOP. It seems like you have to do so much in such a short space. I was wondering if anyone had advice about that too. Thank you,
