  1. Hey everyone. I've recently been accepted into NYU Hagop Kevorkian Center, the University of Chicago, and the University of Texas at Austin as a master's student for the upcoming fall. I'm interested in studying the modern Middle East, and I hope to pursue a PhD after my master's. Professionally, I would like to go into advising on or developing US foreign policy with a focus on the Middle East (Perhaps a job in the White House or in a political think tank in DC). That being said, I have not completely ruled out the possibility of teaching in the future as well. Bearing all this in mind, I would like opinions from other people who are similarly in my position, who are currently studying at these schools, or even alumni, anyone who might be able to shed some light on my situation and give helpful advice, as I am torn between the aforementioned schools. I will also say that at the moment, it seems that UT Austin is the most financially feasible so far (lowest tuition, but I haven't heard if I will receive an TA position yet - I should find out in the next couple of weeks). Any thoughts/opinions on which school I should attend? Thank you all in advance.
  2. I asked UT Austin if I can replace my SOP now and this is their reply: Because your file has been referred to the program we cannot remove any items. If you go directly to the upload suite (after your application has been submitted and loads into the system) you will be able to upload an updated version of your document(s). Please note that the new file will not replace the old file and both will be available to the review committee. As such, we recommend only uploading new versions of your documents if absolutely necessary. Now I am confused if I shall replace my SOP, your suggestions will be helpful!
  3. Anyone else apply to Lamar University's AuD program? I'm applying there and UT Austin. Nervous about the whole thing. Ya'll know anything about their program? I've already visited Austin before.
  4. Hey All, So I graduated from Berkeley with a BA in English (Medieval focus). After a long process which I won't bore you with, I decided this past Fall to apply for a MSc in Zooarchaeology at York in the UK. I have been in touch with professors at York to get more information on the program and how I can prepare. I took an Intro to Archeology class at Cal, as well as a Physical Anthro class, and am currently taking a Forensic Anthropology class and a Cultural Anthropology class at UT Austin Extension. I am IN LOVE with my forensic class and this has only solidified my desire to dive into an archaeological (and osteological) field. In one sentence: I want to study human artifacts, with a strong focus on osteological remains with a possible/probable focus on animal remains. Though I am fairly flexible as to the time period or place that I study (the great thing about zooarch is that it's everywhere and every-when), I do have a keen interest in Europe (specifically Celtic and Gaulish areas), and the older the better. I should hear back from York any day now, and I would be very excited to complete their program. However, my decision to apply was fairly last minute and based on a complete change in tracks (do not let this confuse you in regards to my interest and dedication -- it's more like I woke up than that I changed my mind) and as a result I didn't really get a chance to poke around and consider other programs (and woulnd't have had time to apply even if I did). If I am accepted to York, I am now strongly considering deferring a year (largely for finacial reasons) and taking that time to also look at what other programs, both in the UK and the US, would be good for me. My understanding is that UT Austin has a very good program (not top, but very good). However, all ranking information I can find is on the Anthropology program, but not specifically on the Archeology program. Can anyone comment on UT Austin's MA program when you put in a focus on Archeology? How about York? Their Archeology department is well regarded in the UK, but how about over here? I know Stanford has an excellent program, and I will likely apply, but I also know my chances of getting in are low. Can anyone suggest other programs that are very good? Above all, I think what I need to know is how important is the "ranking" of an MA program? I know that for employment purposes (specifically if you're looking at Tenure Track academia) it quite matters how others view your PhD program. But what about a terminal Masters program as a precursor to a PhD program? I assume it's not entirely unlike the "prestige" of your BA granting institution -- it may help you get into a program but it's not the be-all-end-all. Thanks in advance for any guidance or thoughts!
  5. So I just got accepted into the Stanford MSEE program. I applied for the Ph.D. program, but they denied me the candidacy and put me on the MS for EE list. I've been reading a lot about the MSEE degree at Stanford, especially ideas that the MS program is a cash cow. I honestly don't mind having to pay IF I can have at least a chance at the Ph.D. program at Stanford, but I don't know how difficult it is to be able to find an advisor if you're not in the Ph.D. program. I have also been accepted as a doctoral candidate into UT Austin (my home school) in the CommNetS group. I'm not yet sure of the funding here, but at least I'm in somewhere. On the other hand, I am also waiting on Harvard, Caltech, and CMU Ph.D. programs. They may be long shots, but I would definitely pick a Ph.D. at one of those places, or even a thesis-based Masters, then the MSEE program at Stanford, especially because the Stanford MSEE program is non-thesis based. So what are the options if I do want to pursue a Ph.D. at Stanford, but by going into the Terminal MS first? I don't want to be in a program where even the professors won't let me do research because I'm not in the Ph.D. program. Thanks in advance to any replies.
  6. Hi all... I am new to GradeCafe. I wanted to say hello and see in anyone else had applied to the Special Education program at UT- Austin. I am meeting with one of the research teams on Tuesday! I am very excited but so nervous.
