I am planning on applying to the MA in English teaching assistantship at North Carolina State University this spring. The deadline isn't until February 1st, but I was wondering: is grad school like law school where it is an open secret that the sooner you get your app in, the more likely you will be able to get in? If so, then of course I want to apply now. Thanks so much!
Next week, I have to interview faculty interested in serving as either an advisor or second reader to my thesis (MA English Lit. btw). (1) What questions should I ask them to ensure that we will work well together? (2) What other advice do you have for this process? Thanks
dorotheabrooke posted a topic in Literature, and Rhetoric and CompositionI've been able to look up information on average GPAs and GRE scores; however, I'd like to know if anyone can offer advice as to the rest of the application? What about work experience? Volunteerism? Other community involvement? Honors recognitions/ societies? Any suggestions for activities with which I can become involved for my junior and senior years as an English major? What about advice for course-load? Specific classes/ subject areas? Anything else that I might've missed despite my dozen questions? I'm interested in top-tier M.A./ Ph.D. programs, so I would like any and all input as far as preparation goes. Thanks in advance! Much appreciated!!
