  1. Hey, all! I know a lot of us are really concerned about how admissions season is going. I've been rejected by half of the programs I applied to so I wanted to make this thread for people who wanted to talk about their possible plans or just commiserate about the situation. I followed up with one of my POIs and she told me that despite having a strong application, it was a really difficult decision this year, especially getting so many applications, but to work on my writing sample. She said I was working with a fascinating subject, but that the front end of my paper read more like a literature
  2. Hello, I am hunting around for a Master of Arts program in Classics / Classical Studies / Ancient History (preferably Classical Studies so I am getting both the language and culture courses in my MA), but my issue is that I would need to pursue the program online. I would prefer the school be based in the United States (non-profit, no for-profit schools) as I would need to get financial aid to attend, and there are little to no scholarships that I have found that would apply to a distance program learner, especially one that is for an American student attending a British school at a dista
  3. Hi, all! I just wrote a statement of purpose for my application for Yale's Classical Art and Archaeology program and I wanted to know if anyone would be willing to look it over? I know it's a bit rough in places but I'm a bit stuck on knowing how/where to polish it. Thanks in advance!
  4. Hi all I've applied to graduate programs in Canada for Classical Archaeology and Classics with a focus in archaeology... My advisors have been a bit unclear and not up-to-date on what the best programs are, international reputations, and the reputations of academics in their departments. Does anyone have any insight into the classical arch programs at UBC, UofA, Mcmaster, and Brock? Where do they rank, which supervisors are highly recommended, if programs are well funded or not? Thank you!!! (i originally posted in decisions, decisions but i think this is more appropriate)
  5. So there’s not a thread for Fall 2020 applicants yet and I wanted to start one! I’m a philosophy and classical studies dual major applying to MA programs in classics for the Fall of 2020. My interests primarily lie in the reception of Greek literature in the German academy of the 18th and 19th.

  7. I'm waitlisted by the MA program in UWisconsin. Does anybody know the chances of getting off its waitlist? This is really my top choice school:( If anyone got accepted into the program but is absolutely not attending, would you turn down the offer to give waitlisters a chance? Thank you all in advance!!
  8. So, I discovered this program(me) recently because I tend to just look around at other universities for fun because I compile resource pages for aspiring Classicists and thought some of you might be interested in the program(me). It's entirely online and the courses they have on offer include ancient Egypt, which I think is a great thing. Another great thing about this program(me) is that it can be taken as individual courses, a Postgraduate Certificate, or a Postgraduate Diploma if you don't want to pursue the full Master of Science with the dissertation. I've put the link below for fol
  9. Hello all, I am becoming a college senior this fall and I am making my list of schools (MA? not sure yet) to apply to at this moment. Kind of in lost for the tiers of school to consider as "reach" or "safety", I am seeking your advice. My situation is a bit complicated: I am currently double majoring in biology and classics. My biology GPA is kind of low (3.2 ish), while my classics GPA is higher (3.7 ish). I have conducted independent research in biology and have a publication on the way, but I am having trouble sparing time for my last few courses to complete my bio major graduation req
  10. Hi all! So I just recently graduated with my first masters degree in library science. It was exciting and I finished with great grades - 3.82 CGPA on a 4.0 scale. However, my ultimate passions are history and classics. I did a double major for them in my undergrad. In fact, I want to go back to do a second masters in classics or history (in 2 years as I would like to work and earn some work experience and money first so I can get married) and probably get a PhD after that. The problem is, my undergrad CGPA was mediocre - 3.14 on a 4.3 scale. I had an average of about 3.4 in the las
  11. Hi guys. I've seen people in other areas begin threads for the Fall 2019 applicants, so I figured I would start the Classics thread. I'm graduating in May and working on applying to a large variety of Masters and Ph.D programs related to Classical Archaeology.
  12. Hello out there! Any other fall 2018 Brandeis students on gradcafe? I just got into the Ancient Greek and Roman studies masters program today and will most likely be going - dependent on hearing back from one school. I’m planning a trip to visit the campus soon but would love to hear from anyone that has already been. If you have any recommendations for places to visit or potential neighborhoods to live in, I’d love to hear them! Looking forward to hearing from my fellow Brandeis students ?
  13. I'm applying to grad school for the upcoming cycle and I'm in a bit of an anxiety-laden state! Would love to hear from other people in this position I'm a senior at an Ivy-plus institution (think Duke, UChicago, Johns Hopkins etc) and I'm hoping to apply for a terminal Ph.D. in Mythological literature, especially from the archaic and classical periods. Right now I'm looking to apply to UT Austin, UNC, NYU, Columbia, Princeton, and maybe Duke, but I'm open to suggestions! My greatest concern right now is that while I did well my junior year, I had a bad freshman year so I have 2 B-'s
  14. Hi, I'm currently an English undergrad student. But I'm planning to do my masters in Classics. (We'll narrow it down once we reach that bridge) I have zero background in the languages, Latin or ancient Greek and due to the lack of resources/programs (again, zero) in my country about classics, I have to apply to the programs offered by the universities abroad. Due to my lack of language background and to make up for three years of language requirement to get a PhD in Classics, I'm going to do a post baccalaureate. So I have my post bacc narrowed to three universities, but what I wanted to know
  15. So, aside from Coursera and other similar MOOCs, what is the best way to keep up/up to date/refresh Classics information if you have a decently sized gap between your undergraduate degree and when you pursue your MA? I am currently getting my Master of Arts in Museum Studies, so aside from MOOCs or the University of Georgia Post-Bacc (which I would like to do but can't afford at the moment), what can I do to show my potential as a graduate student and show that I have not left the Classics/Classical Studies behind while I studied museum work and worked in a museum that is more history based wi
  16. So, like many of you, I have a big decision to make. I need to choose between two Classics MA programs: FSU and Boulder. As of right now, FSU is offering me full funding. I'm on the waitlist for funding at Boulder, but I've been told I'm near the top of the list so getting funding is possible. I haven't been able to visit, but Boulder's program sounds amazing and they have two faculty there who are very closely related to my interests. One person in particular sounds like she would be an obvious choice to be my thesis advisor when the time comes. Boulder is also a very liberal place
  17. Hey everyone, I'm hoping to get some insight or guidance from those of you who either are, or have been, in my position. I will attempt not to drone on endlessly with this, so please hang in there! I finished my BA in Classics in Chicago last year, and have just about (two more weeks) finished the Post-Bacc Program in Classics at UCLA (did well, feel confident in some strong letters of recommendation). I will be applying to PhD programs this fall. From the get-go, I always intended on applying solely to Classics programs, but the Post-Bacc Program has served me very well in tailoring my resear
  18. Hello all, Since I'm a pretty logical and practical person, I've been trying to come up with backup plans in case I don't get into a program due to my less-than-stellar undergraduate record. In the event that I do not get accepted, I have been knocking around the idea of applying to University of Georgia's Post-Bacc program and wanted to know if anyone has had experience in this program? Not just the application process, but how the program is set up, the difficulty level of the classes, etc. Thanks in advance!
  19. Hello, all! I'm still in the process of editing my writing sample, but the issue I'm trying to figure out is the writing style. The most recent paper I have is from an interdisciplinary foundations graduate course, but the professor required us to use APA. Should I keep it that way if I'm applying to a Classical Studies MA program? I've been trying to figure out if I should make it Chicago before putting it in with my application; the biggest issue I'm concerned about is that the writing sample is what the university uses to judge whether to offer the student funding or not. So, I want to make
  20. Not sure if anyone's seen the recent Eidolon article on advice for Classics grad students, but I figured this would be a good place to post it for those of us currently in/soon to be in grad school: https://eidolon.pub/dont-eat-the-cubed-cheese-and-other-advice-for-classics-graduate-students-aece0a14607#.ilbqbz17a What do you guys think of the advice? Any tips of your own to add?
  21. Hello, all! I was wondering if anyone would be willing to give me some feedback on my SoP for a terminal MA program in Classical Studies. It's due in February, so I have a bit of time to make corrections before I send it off. Thanks in advance!
  22. I'm having a bit of a dilemma with my pursuit of a second Master of Arts degree. Let me preface this by saying that while a second Master's degree may not seem like a good idea to some, since my first Master of Arts degree is in Museum Studies, the second degree would be complimentary to it in some way. My issue is that I need to attend my second Master of Arts degree as a distance learning/online program, as I do not have access to these programs at the local university and cannot afford to move at this moment and am working a full-time job now. Therefore, the dilemma I face is the following:
  23. Hi all! No one had made this post yet (is the Classics corner of GradCafé slowly dying?!) so I figured I'd take the plunge. Who is applying for Classics and Classics-adjacent programs this cycle? What are your fields and interests? What are your hopes and dreams? (I am not applying myself and am happily ensconced in my own PhD program, but am happy to answer any questions about applications, interviews, or life as a PhD student)
  24. What are you working on this summer? I'm finishing some odds and ends from the spring, and then I'm starting to do research on a renaissance author named Posselius. I have a few other unformed ideas. I should probably decide and stick with one at a time!
  25. Is everyone all settled? What did you ultimately decide? Where are you going? Have you decided to wait until the next cycle? I am going to the University of Kentucky for something a little different than the standard Classics PhD.
