  1. Hello, everyone! Just wanted to start this page for those applying to any type of graduate program in music (MA, MM, PhD, or DMA) for the upcoming application cycle.
  2. Hi everyone! I'm a rising senior at a pretty prestigious LAC, and am planning on applying to about ten PhD programs in music theory this fall. I'm pursuing a BM in Music Education/Piano Performance and a BA in Psychology, and my main area of interest for research is music cognition. Grade-wise, I have a 4.0 GPA for each of my majors and a 3.99 GPA overall. I took an independent study last fall with a music theory professor where I wrote two short (~20 page) papers to serve as writing samples for graduate school, and I'm currently in the process of writing my senior honors thesis which I hope can also be a writing sample (but only for the programs that allow you to submit an entire thesis). My GRE scores are 160V, 150Q, and 4.5AW (not great, I know, but I'm hoping my GPA carries more weight than these scores). I now have my entire thesis committee finalized, so I'm hoping that my advisor and readers will all agree to write letters of recommendation for me. Here is my current list of schools: Eastman, Yale, Princeton, Harvard, Columbia, Northwestern, CUNY, Chicago, Michigan, WUSTL Can anyone give me any feedback on what my odds are of getting in at least one of these programs? I know that I'm applying to all fully-funded PhD programs, but I've had to pay for undergrad completely out of pocket with no scholarships (and no real financial aid at all, besides loans), so it's really important that grad school does not cost any additional money (I'm still up to my neck in loans for undergrad). Thanks in advance!
  3. I’m looking at several top music theory PhD programs (Eastman, Yale, Columbia, Harvard, Northwestern...just to name a few) and was wondering how heavily GRE scores are weighed for applicants. My current scores are 160V, 150Q, and 4.5A, so my quant score is low, but I’ve heard that humanities programs generally only care about verbal and writing scores. I’ve considered retaking it to boost my quant score, but I’m not sure if it’s worth the time and money. Additionally, I have a 3.99 GPA at my undergrad institution, so I’m wondering if this might be able to offset my lower quant score. Any insights would be greatly appreciated!
  4. Hi Everyone! Are there any music folks out there? I took a glance at some of the discussions and there are not many that concentrate on the music field. Not going to lie, I am a bit more nervous with these grad applications than I was with my undergrad. I received a bachelor of music education from a well respected private university and have been teaching for a few years. My end goal is to obtain a PhD in Musicology and teach at the collegiate level. I would love to hear of others stories as we wait this thing out. Schools in which I applied:Arizona State MA in Musicology, Ucla MA Musicology on a PhD track, U of Oregon MA in Musicology, MM in Musicology from Texas Tech.
  5. This is precisely what the title suggests. Invite everyone planning to apply for a master's course in the field of Music to share concerns, updates here. And I request everyone already enrolled in such programmes to help us out. @Musicologist I am personally confused between Musicology and Ethnomusicology and want to find out more about Music therapy as a programme. Any disussion around it is much appreciated!
