    2017 Applications Thread

    Anyone starting applications/starting to look at applications for the season? I figured I would start a thread here. I'm planning on applying to Rhetoric programs (some in English departments and some in Comm departments). Tentative list: Comm Departments: UNC, Northwestern, Michigan State (WRAC), Georgia, Texas (Austin), South Carolina and Wake Forest. English Dept: Michigan, Ohio State, Miami of OH, UCDavis.
  2. Anyone thinking/are in the dual program for speech pathology? I don't hear much about that path and I'd like some tips. I'd like to know if it's as competitive as the MA program? Do dual programs (or PhD, even) weigh their applicants the same as the MA program? Should I focus more on my GPA, GRE, or research experiences (I've done three poster presentations--one for ASHA)? What's something you recommend or have done to help your acceptance? Thank you!

    Fall 2012 Admissions

    Hello Everyone, I'm in a bit of a panic at the moment, looking for some advice. I'm scheduled to take the GRE in 3 weeks (get the scores Dec 1st, day of a few program deadlines so its going to be a tight squeeze) and on all of my practice tests, my Verbal is mediocre 620 and my quant is embarassingly low, not even 500. I'm a horrible standardized test taker, so things arent looking so great for me. My undergrad GPA was good 3.78 and I have strong letters of rec but no internships or relevant work exp. My top schools are PhD programs, Berkeley and USC (restricted to CA), but I'm also including Santa Cruz because its within my location and two MA programs, CCA and SFAI. Here are my questions, with such horrible scores on the GRE that I have yet to take, what do you think my chances of getting into Berkeley or USC are? (I'm thinking slim to none, especially coming from a small state college in Denver). Secondly, does anyone know about the Visual Studies/Art History programs at CCA or SFAI? In otherwords, if I have to get a MA prior to moving on to a PhD program, will these schools be of any help to me? Just an FYI, my area is Contemporary Art with a focus on gender and sexuality. Overall goal, really interested in research and curatorial work. Thanks for the help everyone!
