  1. Ive secured an internship at the United Nations in NYC but the dates overlap with the fall semester. NYU has said they'll give me course credit for the internship, whereas Oxford says apply next year with no guarantee of admissions. What is a better program in the long run? I'm interested in applying for PhD's in America after I've completed the masters. Is oxford as prominent for US PhD's? Thanks!
  2. I'm new around here, but I have not yet found any thread for NELC 2019. So, here it goes! I have applied to 4 programs: UChicago, Hopkins, Brown, UCLA. It's the first time I apply in the US, and I initially thought 4 programs was too much, specially when asking recommenders to submit LORs to multiple programs, but then I came here and saw that people are applying to 10+ universities! I hope my 4 applications are enough to get me in somewhere! In any case, the wait is killing me! Anyone else out there?
  3. I'm applying to masters' programs in Middle Eastern studies straight out of undergrad. I go to an Ivy League school and I'm going to graduate with at least a 3.2 GPA. I have some internship experience in my field and not much academic research experience, but I do have a lot of writing experience in my field. I have a strong SOP and good LOR (one of them is from one of the foremost professors in IR) and I am also fluent in Arabic with study abroad experience. My GRE scores are good (163V, 155Q, 5W) but I'm worried that my GPA will drag me down...what schools are considered 'safe', 'middle', an
  4. Greetings, Long-time lurker, first-time poster. I figured it might be worthwhile to get a reality check from some of my peers on here, as you all would know better than many of the real-world people I know about the MES world and what their admissions processes look like. I could really use some perspective and context about this matter, so some feedback would be greatly appreciated. I am in an unconventional situation where: a) I am adamant about transitioning into academia/the humanities to study the Middle East with a focus on the intellectual history of the Levant and
  5. Has anyone who was accepted heard anything further? I had some brief contact about the course but I've heard nothing about the open day - anyone got info?
  6. Hey everyone. I've recently been accepted into NYU Hagop Kevorkian Center, the University of Chicago, and the University of Texas at Austin as a master's student for the upcoming fall. I'm interested in studying the modern Middle East, and I hope to pursue a PhD after my master's. Professionally, I would like to go into advising on or developing US foreign policy with a focus on the Middle East (Perhaps a job in the White House or in a political think tank in DC). That being said, I have not completely ruled out the possibility of teaching in the future as well. Bearing all this in mind,
  7. Hi everyone, I applied to mostly Sociology programs for fall '12 because I had this grand vision of myself incorporating Iranian Studies into Sociology (silly me), and now the denials are coming from all sides. Luckily, I applied to Middle Eastern Studies MA programs at a few schools - UT, UWashington, and UChicago. I got accepted to UT but I'm kind of leaning away from it because I did my undergrad there, although it seems I may not have much choice in the matter. Other than waiting and reapplying again for programs that start in the spring (I can't wait another year, my job is burning me
  8. Hello all, I need your help! I am an applicant to Master's programs in Middle East Studies. I have been accepted to my top 3 programs - Georgetown's Master's in Arab Studies (MAAS), Harvard's Center for Middle East Studies (Harvard CMES), and the University of Chicago's Center for Middle East Studies (Chicago CMES). In addition, I am currently waiting on the second round decision for a Fulbright full grant to Jordan. My research interests lie mostly in modern Middle Eastern politics. The majority of my undergraduate work has centered on Syria and Lebanon in particular. I am in my
  9. I started hearing back from MES MA applications last week. The results so far - a win (Chicago, w/ 1/3 funding), a loss (Harvard), and a draw (UTA). Still waiting on news from Arizona, G'town and AUB. Even if I go 0 for 3 on the remaining apps and don't get in to UTA I'm thrilled to go to Chicago, but does anyone know if UTA delves into its waitlist pool? And on that point, how much agency do I have in this position? I remember hearing/reading about how to get off a waitlist when I was applying for undergrad but that was a long time ago. Generally speaking, is letter writing/
  10. I have an interview in Beirut for the CMES Masters program in a few weeks....and I have very little tangible, specific intel about the program. Can anyone with first-hand experience help me out? Something as basic as a faculty list and their specializations would be a great place to start. Shukran!
  11. I'm looking at a range of MES masters programs right now. Judging from the posters here, it looks like lots of people who enrolled in MES programs in the new semester are people who didn't get in to their top-choice PhD programs. Is this a safe assumption to make? For all intents and purposes, I'm looking at the MA as a terminal degree (assuming I get accepted somewhere, insha'allah). Am I in the minority here? Do schools orient their programs as either PhD prep or professional prep? Would this affect the program's competitiveness? Thanks all, good luck.
