  1. The answer to this is probably a simple no. However, this MA program suits my interests best, I am interested in multiple faculty members' work, and they have many job positions in initiatives I'm passionate about; I was already planning to hopefully get a graduate associate or TA job at one of their centers (with research that's exactly what I want to pursue). Everything about this program seems perfect except for the recent lack of funding (the biggest factor). Does this program have the prestige that makes it worth it, even without funding? It doesn't help that this is my only accepta
  2. I'm going to be starting an MA in English this fall and even though I am no where near getting a visa in hand, my major concern is still preparing myself for no regrets. It should be no surprise that a large chunk of students across the world adore the US Education system. A South Asian myself, seeing my undergraduate department fail miserably in handling the pandemic, I have jotted down multiple reasons to be happy about embarking on this journey even though the university I'd be joining isn't a prestigious one. However, I've seen multiple international students struggle to unders
  3. Hi, is anyone on here currently at the MA program at UVA, or know someone who is / was going there in the past? I can't seem to find much information about where UVA MA students end up going after they graduate (whether that is a PhD program or a job) and would love to know, in addition to the size of the program (how many accepted / how many enroll per year). I am also curious about the benefits or disadvantages of attending this program, other than the obvious (no funding). How would PhD programs view this degree, including UVA's PhD program? Is it a plus for PhD admission because the
  4. I'm hoping to get into a top-tier PhD program in English next year. I want to get an MA that will better my chances. I'm deciding between Chicago's MA in the Humanities and UCL's English Linguistics MA (which is within their English department). -UChicago gave me a scholarship, so while it's still more expensive for me than UCL, the difference isn't huge. Both are 1-year programs. -I'd much rather live in London than Chicago. I'm also drawn to the Linguistics focus of the UCL degree. BUT I don't want to choose UCL if PhD admissions committees in the U.S. will see it as far less prest
  5. I am TAing for my department, and while grading I have noticed that a great many of my students are scoring poorly because they are not following directions I gave them multiple times (how to write a thesis, how to organize an essay). While I am sure I am not the most fascinating instructor, I am appalled that what was previously a very engaged class has not been paying attention to (or using) the assignment instructions, the course reading, or my advice in class. How can I get the students to pull an about-face on this in the last half of the semester?
  6. I have a pretty difficult decision in front of me. I got accepted to a few English MA programs (one of them is a super-ideal program) and one MFA program in creative writing, and I'm not sure about which path to follow. I really, really want to attend an MFA. I see creative writing as a life-long pursuit, and I think getting an MFA right now would be a great step in that pursuit. The "problem" (I realize how lucky I am to have this problem) is that I'm unsure about this particular MFA program. It's only a few years old, not as well known or renowned as other places, and is taught by
  7. Hello Grad Cafe peeps! I'm interested in a very specific English M.A. or PhD program with an emphasis (or expertise) in graphic novel creation (or with image and textual analysis together). Does something like this exist in the U.S.? I haven't found anything in my research, but I'd love to know if any of you have come across programs like these.
  8. Hi! Very recent college graduate here currently applying to English Masters and/or PhD programs for Fall 2020 (originally planned on applying last fall, but my courseload and general lack of money made it a little difficult, so I waited a year). I have my B.A. in English, minor in Writing, overall GPA of 3.588 (GPA in major is about the same, I'll have to check, but it's at least 3.5), was in top % of seniors of my major, graduated Cum Laude, plenty of extracurriculars/honor societies/etc. My (December 2018) GRE score for verbal was 159, which isn't too hot, but I was in the higher end of the
  9. 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!
  10. 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
  11. Has anyone heard back from Northwestern yet? I've heard back from all other programs, and it is starting to feel rather late in the year to hear back.
  12. I'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
