  1. Was successful when I did my MA. Happy to answer questions/give statements a onceover!
  2. Late, but it really depends. Some schools (ie: UCLA off the top of my head) specifically want you to have an MLIS and will ask you to do additional coursework equivalent to MLIS competencies if you don't have it.
  3. It was my backup choice, but I got into UCIC, so I'm saving myself the $95. They have a really interesting faculty though. What specialization were you thinking of entering?
  4. Alright, I figured I'd kick us off - who's applying this cycle and where?

I can only speak to my own experience: I'm from Canada where it's not "the norm" to do your PhD right after your BA. We all do M(something) degrees before moving on, unless we're studying in the states. That being said, the PhD is less lengthy here than in the states (3-4 years). I do know
