  1. I finished my BA last spring and I am applying for graduate programs for the fall of 2020. I am interested in studying metaphysics and logic. I am a big fan of David Lewis. The analysis of possibility, ontology, formal systems, and the metaphysics of science are each contenders for my chief philosophical interest. I do not know which programs I should be applying for. I plan on applying to a couple of terminal MA programs for general philosophy. I would like also to pursue MA/PhD programs and those programs with a strong faculty for metaphysics. Most of the programs I would like to apply to, given their faculties best suit my interests, are quite nice. That's a problem for me. My credentials are a mixed bag. GPA BA -3.27 GRE 168/165/5.5 I seriously doubt the letters will be that strong. I had no issues in my courses but I withdrew for an extended period of time as per my financial disposition. While away from school, all my best candidate letter writers either passed on or moved out of the discipline. The rest just haven't instructed a course with me in too many years. I am confident in the quality of my writing sample. I plan on applying to the following schools: Syracuse Norther Illinois Houston NYU Tufts Rutgers Southern California I am under the impression I should apply to more schools. I don't know which ones though. I have already done considerable research (mostly by reading phil articles in journals) to find good matches at say Syracuse (Dowell, Heller) or Tufts (Denby). Now, I am running short on ideas. Also, I don't even know how practical or strong my list really is. Am I applying to too strong of programs? Should I give up on PhD programs? Does anyone have any input otherwise? Any is appreciated. Thank you.
  2. A friend of mine graduated from undergrad a few years back with her B.S. in Audio Engineering. Unfortunately, once she graduated, she realized she didn't want to work in her major field, and is considering going back to school. As an avid reader and someone who enjoys grammar and syntax, she's considering pursuing an MA in English, but unfortunately doesn't have the means to pay out of pocket for tuition. Are there any fully-funded MA English programs that accept students that don't already hold a BA in English?
  3. Hi there, Last year I graduated and received a BA in Speech-Language Pathology and I also minored in Child and Adolescent Development. Unfortunately, I have a GPA lower than 2.5, mainly due to serious illnesses I experienced during my time at and also housing was an issue. Now looking back I should've taken the time off to get well properly but I just had that mentality that I could. As many of us in this field know that my GPA is unexceptional for most Grad programs so I was thinking of doing an SLPA program. I am curious if there is anybody out there who has a similar experience or knows someone. Since I've graduated I've been working currently, I am an RBT/ Lead BI at my job, and also completed an Assistive Technology program. Now getting better from an accident (another added to the list), I feel ready to endeavor again. So I am reaching out to anybody who has gotten to an SLPA program, Grad school and did it with a low GPA. Thank you for reading this
  4. Hi, all. This is my first post here, but this forum has been greatly helpful to me in my grad school search so thank you so much! But I digress... I'm a recent graduate with a BA in English Literature from a small but respectable private university in Indiana, and I'm taking a gap year now before applying to PhD programs. My interests are in Gender and Sexuality and others forms of media such as Film and Theatre. I'm also interested in Post-1900s American literature, although it isn't my primary focus. I'm not sure how all to go about wording this in my personal statement to programs, and I was also curious about the importance of specifying a time period. Would it benefit me to include my interest in Post-1900s American literature along with my primary interests (or as one of my primary interest)? Would all of that be too much to detail in a personal statement? (Note: My 24-page senior thesis, which I plan to use for applications, is on queer theory and analysis of a French queer film, if that info is useful at all.) I was also curious if anyone has programs they think could align with my interests. I have a list of 11 schools so far that I'm considering applying to, but I'd love to hear suggestions and broaden that list. (Preferably schools that don't require the GRE Subject Test in Literature because I know I haven't read enough classic literature to get high scores on that and would rather not bother.) Let me know in the comments if you need any additional information from me. Thank you in advance!
  5. Hi, friends! Would it be a bad thing to get my PhD in Social Psychology from the same university from which I got my Bachelor's? It's a great university in rankings, but again--it would be the same one. What are your thoughts?
