  1. I am considering applying late (in 3-4 weeks) to M.A. Programs. Is there a list anywhere of programs that have rolling, very late etc. deadlines?
  2. I had an underwhelming GPA in a difficult major from a top 10 but underrated public research university. I'm also in my late 30s - I've been thinking of grad/professional school for a long time, but I know it will be very challenging, and may not be worth it.For a while now, I'm been thinking of applying to the M.A. in Asian Studies at UC Berkeley and the M.A. in Asia Pacific Studies at University of San Francisco. I'd much prefer Asian American Studies, but very few schools offer an M.A. in that - the closest one seems to be UCLA, and I'd like to stay local and commute to school. There's an M.A. in Asian American Studies at SF State, but I know that SFSU doesn't have anywhere near the name recognition of UCB. My goals for those programs is to write, get published, be a "thought leader" (sorry if it sounds arrogant; it's not meant to be) in Asian or Asian American Studies, maybe lecture, and possibly teach in some capacity. My main goal would be to be a published author, whether through books, articles, journal papers, online digital content, etc. I just think of these master's programs as giving me a jumping point into what I want to do. I'd also love to go through the grad school experience - it would probably be very personally enriching. Also, like many people, I've always thought I would go to grad school, and it would be great to go to grad school at a top university. Any thoughts on the M.A. in Asian Studies at Berkeley, the M.A. in Asia Pacific Studies at USF, or the M.A. in Asian American Studies at SFSU? Has anyone gone through those programs, or know people who have completed them? How hard is it to get into those 3 programs? What is it like taking those programs, what do you learn or get out of it, what are the courses/students/professors like, and what do students do after they get their M.A.? Any other schools/masters programs you can recommend to me that are in the Bay Area, close to San Francisco? I'm also open to online masters programs, but there are hardly any offered in these fields, and they're from no-name and questionable schools.
  3. Heya, folks. I've been lurking for a couple weeks, but I couldn't seem to find a 2018 acceptance/rejection thread specifically for Philosophy M.A. applicants, so I figured I'd start one myself. I applied to four programs: NIU, UW-Milwaukee, Virginia Tech, and Western Michigan. I was admitted to NIU early this month--2/7, I want to say?--but am still awaiting news on funding. I've not yet heard back from any of my other three programs, but, of course, the deadlines for those applications have only recently passed, so I imagine I'll be waiting some time yet... Any others admitted to NIU?
  4. Hi guys, I am on the waitlist of QMSS at Columbia (Fall 2017). If there is anyone who is admitted to this program and decides not to accept the offer, please contact me (1945136798@qq.com). Thanks.
  5. Hi everyone – I have a quick question, one which may or may not require some degree of vague speculation: that is, does anyone know if it might hurt my chances at receiving an offer from a school's PhD program if I apply to their M.A. program a year prior, receive an offer, and turn it down? Does this depend on a particular admissions committee? Any and all perspectives are welcome, thanks!
  6. Hi everyone! I really need help from all the super helpful people here I am about to receive a master's degree in English Literature. However, I do not plan on studying English further. I realized that producing new knowledge to practically impact the society at large was what I truly wanted to do. I have recently learned of the field of edTech, which includes departments like instructional systems technology, learning and design, learning sciences, etc. I want to advance into this field because the sheer practicality of it is very appealing. So my question is: Do you know of any phd programs that you think I have a chance of getting in with a M.A. in English? Or maybe programs that allow starting with a M.A. and switching midway to Phd? Starting another M.A. program is a huuuuuuuge burden, economically. I have already spent two years and a whole lot of money to get my M.A I know Im supposed to do the research, like a good graduate student, but the field is just so new to me that I really am at a loss. Any advice would be super helpful, really! I hope to be able to hold on to my dream of standing at a podium someday. I love the university setting; I hope to be able to stay a while longer.
  7. Hi. First congratulations to everyone who's admitted. I am trying to decide among UChicago CIR vs George Washington Elliott Vs Georgetown MSFS. I like Uchicago and professor there. But it is a one year degree, feels a bit short. I also like Elliott faculty. I would do an International Relations MA. Possibly a PhD. Afterwards focusing on traditional security issue or East Asia regional affairs. Any advice?
  8. I'm currently searching for a strong M.A. or M.A./PhD. combo program in the Religious Studies field. My interest is in Christianity and the ways it has shaped American society/politics/culture. I have a B.A. in Sociology and was thinking about pursuing an M.A. in Sociology of Religion, but I am open to other programs that would allow me to focus on my area of interest, as mentioned above. Unfortunately, for familial reasons, I am restricted to programs in the Southern California area. Anyone have any suggestions?
  9. Dear Gradcafe Community, This is my first post as a newly registered member of gradcafe. I have followed several threads here and found helpful advice, so I thought I would try my own question. I am going into the final year of my M.Div. program, hoping to continue on to a Ph.D. in patristics. But I have a dilemma. I am not sure whether I would be a very viable candidate for a top-tier Ph.D. program and am wondering what to do. I say this for a couple reasons. First, my languages need some work. I have about four years of Greek between undergrad and divinity school, but it is almost exclusively in Koine. I will have one year of Latin, but will need to work on that. And, I have yet to learn French or German. Furthermore, I have almost no background in classical studies/ancient philosophy (excepting my own independent study). And finally, both of my degrees are from evangelical institutions. On the upside, I have extensive coursework in the history of Christian thought and have taken several graduate seminars on patristic figures in particular. I also have strong LOR's from profs with good connections to some of the schools I am applying to. With all of this in mind, should I go ahead and apply for competitive Ph.D. programs in early Christian history/theology or should I take a couple years to do a funded M.A. that will allow me to work on my languages and fill the lacuna of classical studies/philosophy background? Furthermore, if I do apply to doctoral programs and am rejected, will this negatively affect my chances if I apply after having completed an M.A. to the same programs? I apologize for the length of this, but wanted you to have the specifics. To make this already lengthy question even more tedious, here are my stats: B.A. from Christian liberal arts college (3.94 GPA) M.Div. from evangelical divinity school (3.97 GPA) GRE: 730V/760Q 5.0 Greek (NT) 4 years Biblical Hebrew 2 years Latin 1 year Spanish 2 years
