  1. I had an underwhelming GPA in a difficult major from a top 10 but underrated public research university. I'm also in my late 30s - I've been thinking of grad/professional school for a long time, but I know it will be very challenging, and may not be worth it.For a while now, I'm been thinking of applying to the M.A. in Asian Studies at UC Berkeley and the M.A. in Asia Pacific Studies at University of San Francisco. I'd much prefer Asian American Studies, but very few schools offer an M.A. in that - the closest one seems to be UCLA, and I'd like to stay local and commute to school. There's an M
  2. Hey folks, Seems nobody opens the '20 EAS topic - hah, let me be the beginner!! If you have also applied for the similar discipline(s), have a shout and support each other! Studying postgrad isn't an easy decision - that's why I open this topic hahahaha~ ---------------- Anyway, a short bio about me - gimme some time to say: (not for solicitation!! Apology~) This is Christian from HK. I've applied for my second MA in East Asian Studies, the following 2 are the "uniss" that I've applied: 1) The University of Alberta (Edmonton >>> not "Deadmonton") - with the
  3. My research field is Chinese history, but I am also interested in interdisciplinary approaches to cultural history. So far I have applied to and am waiting on history PhD programs with a strong interdisciplinary base, as well as East Asian studies (EALC/EALAC) programs. My previous training (undergrad, masters) was in history, and my supervisor assured me that I would still be able to be hired as a historian even if I'd graduate with an EALC degree (because I majored in history during my undergraduate and MA studies). While I am very attracted to EALC programs, which would allow me to in
  4. Hey everyone, I'm so grateful to be accepted into both Yale and Columbia for East Asian Studies (China studies) this coming fall. I am however, having difficulty deciding which school to pick. Background: International student with an undergraduate degree in International Relations. Have also taken many courses on political and cultural/social history alongside my IR courses. Open to moving away from an IR specialisation to explore disciplines such as history and anthropology. Considering academia as a potential career but I have not made up my mind as to what d
  5. I figured that there's no thread for the East Asian Languages and Cultures 2019-2020 cycle. I hope everyone's doing well, and feel free to post anything related to the EALC application cycle under this thread!
  6. Got admitted to several schools but not sure which one to go, now hesitating between UCLA MA in East Asian Studies and Columbia MA in Film and Media Studies. I plan to apply for a PhD degree in East Asian Studies/ Comparative Literature/ Film Studies. Undergraduate major: Comparative Literature and German. Interested fields/ topics: Contemporary Chinese Films, Sinophone Studies, New German Cinema, Nostalgia Studies, Trauma and Memory. Concerns about Columbia is mainly on its reputation... Is the MA in Film Studies program easy to get in? If anyone has any suggestion please let me kn
  7. Hi everyone! I recently applied to sociocultural anthropology masters programs as well as east asian studies masters programs because I was interested in studying east asian countries through an anthropological lens. I was accepted into Duke (interdisciplinary), Columbia(socio anthro), Oxford (socioanthro), and UPenn(east asian). I already rejected UPenn because their east asian studies program seemed to be focused on history whereas I wanted to focus more on contemporary. To be honest though, I am not completely set on whether or not I want to study east asian cultures just yet and
  8. I'm currently in the process of thinking about my potential PhD schools and programs that I'd want to apply with once I finish my Masters in East Asian Studies (which I will begin this Fall at Rutgers University). I've attended NYU with a major in Chinese language & cultures and a double minor in Korean and Japanese language and cultures (3.62 GPA), as well as having attended ICLP at NTU for a year. My main interest is Chinese modern -history (1900s - present) and Chinese (and Japanese!) literature. I'm an Caucasian, American citizen living in NJ. I'm wondering if my hopes to go to an Ivy
  9. Hi everyone! I posted here before but I have an update on my decisions... a. Tuition grant + living stipend (it's a small amount=$5000) for 2 years at the RSEA M.A. program at Harvard b. Tuition+living stipend (12K)for my first year but I would have to TA every year (guaranteed TA-ship for only 4 years) at the EALC PhD program at UCSB Thanks! I'm having trouble deciding however...
  10. Hi everyone, I'm an international student (UK) at Oxford, I've just been accepted onto the two programmes I applied for, EAS at Yale and MAPSS at Chicago. I've only been to Chicago briefly, it seemed really cool, but from what I've seen it seems like the course is better at Yale. The only problem is I've been offered a 2k scholarship from Yale vs. a 40k scholarship from Chicago. I'm really praying they will offer me more funding at Yale, although my course director says this is unlikely (maybe because I'm an international student?). Does anyone have any thoughts about the t
  11. I've recently been accepted to Columbia's East Asian Languages and Cultures M.A program and Stanford's East Asian Studies program. I just cannot decide! My research interest is comparative literature between China and Korea, both schools have professors that I would love to work with but one of my concerns are that some are on leave. I'm still deciding on whether I will proceed to Phd therefore this master program would mean a lot to me. Would love to hear anyone's experience or suggestions!
  12. I'm recently admitted to Stanford's M.A East Asian Studies program and Columbia's East Asian Languages and Cultures M.A program. I am now struggling to choose between the two. My research interest is contemporary Chinese and Korean comparative literature. I understand my research area is very specific and both schools have professors who I would love to work with. However some of them are on leave. I would love to hear anyone's experience in the same major in Columbia or Stanford or any suggestions on how to make a choice for my M.A decision.
