  1. Hello all, I'm new to the forum. I really want to get into the African History PhD program at UCLA. My BS and MA have nothing to do with history, and I have spent a significant amount of time staying home with my 3 children. I am familiar with the PhD life since my husband spent the majority of our marriage working on his phd in math. I would need to retake the GRE because my scores have since expired. However, my past scores were relatively high and so was my GPA. Also, the language requirements would not be such and issue as I am practically a native speaker of an African language in which I am interested and have familiarity with one other language relevant to my research interests. In addition to UCLA's wonderful reputation in this field, I am in relatively close proximity to it. I am worried because I have 3 chidren, with the oldest being 8 years old and I don't have much work experience, and am an older student. What do you think I should focus on doing to convince the faculty to accept me? Am I kidding myself? I wanted to know if anyone has any advice or thoughts for me. Thanks in advance.
