Howwwdy folks! I'm 33 with a lot of Army years behind me and in my senior year. Kind of a late start but I've found I really enjoy this college thing and have recently decided on doing the graduate program thing, currently rushing to get some applications in and figure this all out. Luckily I should have enough GI Bill left to pay for a Master's so cost isn't an issue. So, any of you philosophers have recommendations for aesthetics programs with a film focus? I've attached a resource from the American Society for Aesthetics that's been helpful but I really wanted to get some feedback on what I can expect, and I really have no clue how this grad school thing works as I've so recently decided to try it while rushing through my BA. My creds Degree: I'm graduating in English teaching (my fallback career) from the University of Utah. GPA: On track for a 3.98 GPA (one A- in history that sunuvabitch). Letters: I expect two very solid letters and one ok letter. The fourth would be generic. Research/Experience: I just started a research assistant gig with the theater department. It's all I could find in my rush, but my mentor is a mucho legit Harvard educated department lead and the products range from an Oxford encyclopedia entry to a comprehensive biography. I have 5 years of on and off film-production experience including two of my own short films. I took one philosophy QR course and three film courses; one 5000 level, one honors production 3000 level documentary thing, and one intro theory class. I have some rudimentary knowledge of philosophy as a lifetime Marcus Aurelius and Plato fan who casually reads other authors on occasion. GRE: I expect my GRE score to be 162V 159Q and 5W or so judging by my practice tests and having people read over my essasys. ----------------------------- Whattya think? Can I expect to get in anywhere? I'm not too picky on where I go but I'd like to at least have a decent mentor or program behind me. What are the top programs? Other specialties I should consider? I like classics so ancient philosophy would be a definite "yes" alternative for one. I'm also applying to a few film schools for kicks. Any Ph.D. programs that an English major has a chance to get into? How do you feel about UK universities? THANK YOU! graduateguide.pdf
