  1. Northwestern has already offered me a fully-funded package while Columbia simply mean more debt. Right now, my decision has brought about a serious conflict between what my mind wants (the economic convenience and flexibility presented by Northwestern) and what my heart desires (the academic prestige, rigor, faculty, and of course, the city lifestyle presented by Columbia). I already visited Northwestern's campus and the greater Chicago area last month as part of the recruiting event; I was able to spend time with the other accepted students (there were about 5-6 of us), the faculty, and even
  2. Hey there! So, I'm starting to prepare for the emotional turmoil that is applying to PhD programs and would love some general advice or tips from application veterans. A little about my academic background: I received my BA from the American University in Cairo in English and Comparative Literature and in Sociology. I then immediately entered an MFA program at Columbia in Creative Writing and graduated this past spring. I can speak, read, and write fluently in three languages--Arabic, English, and Italian--and have some basic educational background in French. I hope to be able to focus my
  3. Ok so, I'm starting to very seriously consider applying to PhD programs in comparative literature. However, I'm terrified of the whole application process. I just finished an MFA in Creative Writing at Columbia and remember how intense and nerve-wracking that whole application process was. One of my most irrational fears is of the GRE. I took the GRE a few years ago and my scores were not all that. So, what score should I be aiming to get? Also, what--in your opinion--are the most important things that I should focus on in the app. Should I email professors at the schools I'll be applying to?
  4. Yo, Two things: 1. I'm having trouble finding people doing what I want to do. My goal is to apply to Comp Lit programs (F 2018), but I'm not sure I'm competitive or whatever. I have a reading knowledge of Russian, German, Biblical Greek, and Biblical Hebrew (I feel like most programs want more than a reading knowledge, but I'm finding it hard to get further w/o spending much $$$). I went to a whatever Christian liberal arts college, got a B.A. in English, minor in Theology, 3.75 GPA, some good papers, good recommenders, albeit unknown. I want to look mostly at biblical, theological,
  5. Long time lurker, first time poster. I kinda thought that it would be nice if maybe Comp Lit people could rally together and wait in solidarity since a lot of English programs are sending out acceptances and rejections. I keep checking the survey section of gradcafe to see when Comp Lit might start coming out (I've seen a couple about Irvine, but didn't apply their...). Maybe I'll be a lonely island of Comp Lit in a see of English. Congrats to everyone who has been accepted to English programs, btw!
  6. So I'm a little torn on applications this year, as I really would like to stay in my current area (So Cal) and am extremely interested in two different programs at two institutions, USC (Creative Writing PhD and Comp. Media and Culture, Track I) and Irvine (Poetry MFA, where I was waitlisted in a previous cycle, but their Culture and Theory program is also so excellent and very suited to my research interests.) I realize these programs are different and I enjoy different kinds of writing. My own poetic work is deeply informed by my research interests. My poetic practice thrived most whil
  7. Hi!! I've applied to USC's PhD in comparative studies of literature and culture (the general track since my interests are in multiple languages). I see that one person got an interview notice last week. Has anyone else heard anything?? The person who got the interview, congrats! Would you mind sharing which track you selected? Thanks ❤️ Shira
