  1. GRE: 161 VR, 150 QR, 4.5 AW GPA: 3.83 I have one internship and one fellowship under my belt. I've been on the president's honor list for 5/6 semesters. I'm currently doing a one year seminary program at a small institute to learn Arabic, Fiqh, Hadith, and Qur'an studies. What are my chances for the UCLA Islamic Studies Masters program? Are there any other masters programs for Islamic studies I should apply to?
  2. I was wondering if anyone else out there is enrolled in/applying for grad programs for Religion programs with focus on SE Asia or vice versa? I am applying for master's programs for Fall 2020 and also summer language programs like SEASSI and the IU Language Workshop. I know I didn't cast my net as wide as I should have, but I am applying for Cornell's Asian Studies M.A., Wisconsin-Madison's M.A. in Southeast Asian Studies, and Syracuse's M.A. in Religion. I am also applying for FLAS funding for both of those schools. I am very nervous about how competitive the programs are, not mind-blowingly
  3. I am currently trying to decide between Yale, Harvard and Duke, and I have the best tuition package by far from Duke. My question is whether the classroom experience is as rigorous as it might be at Harvard or Yale-- assuming Harvard and Yale classroom experiences are all that rigorous. Does anyone have any insight?
  4. Hello! I got accepted to the WSAR track at Emory Religion. Any seniors/religion graduates here? How is the programme? The annual stipend is 31k. I wish to know how rigorous the programme is? How are their placements? My other option is the partially funded Masters in Social Sciences from UChicago. PS I have to make a decision by April 15!
  5. Hi folks! Last month I was accepted to the South Asian Studies M.A. program at Columbia GSAS with $10,000 scholarship. (There's another thread on it, but it's quite old-2011). I was allowed to deefer admission until fall 2019. Did anyone else apply and/or get accepted to the program, or is a current student/grad? A couple questions: Will $40,000 be enough for cost of living for fall 2019, spring 2020, summer 2020, and fall 2020? That's how much I should have saved up. How competitive is it to get the Foreign Language and Area Studies (FLAS) fellowship? Do most people who
  6. To start a much-needed thread (in hopes of shedding some light on an aspect of humanities graduate admissions that is truly mysterious): What, in the name of all that is good and decent, are grad programs/ad-comms really looking for in letters of recommendation? Almost all letters surely sound pretty similar right? What sets some letters apart? What makes others bad? If anyone has any expertise/experience in this area, please enlighten us--but everyone feel free to opine.
  7. I thought I'd go ahead and start this up. Where are you all applying and in what field? I'm applying for PhD programs in NT, but have yet to finalize my list of schools. Currently, I'm considering applying to: Baylor, Emory, Duke, Duke Div, Notre Dame, PTS, Yale. I may add some schools before all is said and done. Faculty changes have made it harder to narrow down my list. It seems like many senior faculty decided to retire around the same time! I'm thinking of Yale (Attridge and Dale Martin), Emory (LTJ and Holladay), and ND (Moss left, so she didn't retire, but they now only have t
  8. Hello everyone! I've got quick question that you all may be able to help out with. I'm considering applying to Phd programs in English in the future. I have a B.A. in Religion, an M.A. in Business Management, and am finishing up an M.Div from a seminary/divinity school. Despite the fact that I do not have a degree specifically in English, would I have a chance at getting accepted into a Phd program if the school I apply to is known for their emphasis on literature and religious studies (e.g., University of Chicago, Baylor, University of Virginia, etc.)? Would this even be
  9. Hi all. Here's the situation: I was recently accepted to a well-ranked MSW program but a lack of significant scholarship assistance has led to a real existential crisis for me. (I was already kind of having one before, but this just threw it into sharper relief for obvious reasons.) I picked Social Work because I wanted to help people (I know I sound like a 4th grader when I say this but I can't think of a better way of phrasing it), and because I needed to choose a direction for my life, basically. My undergraduate years were characterized by a series of poor choices and I ended up getting a
  10. Hi all, I'm thinking about applying to Duke (both ThD and PhD), Chicago, and Fuller for a PhD in theology (with an emphasis on theological ethics, political theology, modern theology (19th century European)). I would love to hear feedback from some people with experience regarding my chances for acceptance. I have two major concerns about my credentials, but I'll lay out my profile to provide some context. B.A. in Philosophy from Rutgers University. (GPA 2.0) <-- first major point of concern-- I was NOT in a good place at the time, struggling with depression and probably generall
  11. Hi all. I am really quite confused about PhD admissions. I've heard various things from various people--everyone has their own theory on what AdComms are looking for. Do any decent PhD programs accept applicants with limited language training (1 yr Latin/1 yr German)? No B.S.: What GRE scores are "safe" for top programs in theology/religion? I have a 164V/156Q/4.5. Should I retake, or is this a waste of time? Obviously my MA theology gpa is stellar (because prettymuch everyone applying for PhD programs has stellar grades...3.95ish). I have a TAship this semester, but no publication
  12. Hello all, I recently submitted an article for consideration for a fairly prominent journal in Hebrew Bible. As it would be my first non-book-review publication, I'm excited to hear back about an acceptance, rejection, or R&R. I was wondering if anyone could anecdotally speak to the typical turnaround times for journals to which they have submitted. I've heard CBQ has a goal time of about three months. I haven't heard anything outside of that, though.
  13. I used to be a Research Intern and I'm not sure if that's worth putting on a CV for a PhD application. Thoughts? Also, are the job titles "Research Intern" and "Research Assistant" interchangeable or would that be too much of a stretch?
  14. Hey all, I have received a copy of my official transcripts from my undergraduate university. I am applying to 10 PhD programs. Could I simply scan a copy of my transcript 10 times and send the schools those or must I send each school an actual transcript in the post? Thanks in advance
  15. Hello Everyone! I'm looking to apply to some M.Div programs next Fall (2019) and need some advice regarding what schools would be a good fit and what my chances would be of getting into them. I've spoken with a couple of professors at a few different schools, but I'm hoping that this forum could help fill in the gaps. My criteria are the following: 1) Generous funding (*highest priority) 2) Solid academic reputation that would increase chances of getting into a funded Phd program in Theology/Historical Theology 3) Not hostile to conservatives (I'm a progressive evangel
  16. Hey all, Starting this thread to help each other and let one another know where we applied, got accepted, denied or wait-listed. Also feel free to provide any other information such as funding, choosing one school over another, reasons why rejecting etc. Here is my list of applications and updates so far: USA Yale Div - MARc Philosophical Theology/Philosophy of Religion (waiting) Duke Div - MTS (accepted w/ 25% funding) - any idea how to get more? Wake Forest Div - MDiv (rejected) - was surprised to find out I was rejected BU SoT - MTS (waiting)
  17. Hello! How do you guys take care of yourselves spiritually? This is a huge component of my personal journey, and I have been very fortunate to be mentored and included in a group of grad students who undertake this together. I think it is hard to find this unless you expressly go hunting for it on your campus, so if this is important to you I would love to know how you balance this with your busy lives. Sometimes I feel very disconnected with my little community because I never see them around (we are all in different departments) and I would love to bring more open discussions on spirit
  18. Waiting to hear back from Georgetown’s Theological & Religious Studies PhD program. Others have been waitlisted or rejected last week, but I’ve gotten nothing so far. No one has said they’ve been accepted, either. I contacted the Theology Dept. and left a voicemail yesterday just inquiring and perhaps there might be a technical issue on my end. They definitely know I’ve applied, as I contacted my POI and another faculty member about my app during & after submission. I’ve heard that some people are waiting from St. Louis in a similar situation. All my other schools have been rejections
  19. I will soon visit my top option for Ph.D. studies. During the visit, I will have an individual meeting with both my likely supervisor and a likely committee member. I'm interested to know if anyone has any recommended questions. So far, I have the following: What approach do you take in supervising (more hands-on or more hands-off)? What do you see as the real strength(s) of the program? What current projects are you working on? Do your doctoral students help as research assistants? If so, what might my work as one look like? How have your supervisees fared in sec
  20. Hello everyone, I am hoping to apply to a graduate program in anthropology this calendar year. My research interests, broadly speaking, involve perceptions ofcommunal identity in South Asia and its intersection with historical, political, religious, and ideological processes. However, I am also interested in religion, spirituality, and cultural interpretations of the "human journey". Given these broad topics and my interest in South Asia, I am looking for recommendations for suitable graduate programs to which I might apply. Any feedback would be appreciated. Thank you! Austin
  21. As I await responses and assume the worst, I find myself evaluating and second guessing various elements of my application and other aspects of the application process. I'd love to glean from the wisdom of the rest of you as I consider the possibility of applying for a second time next year What would you do differently if you were preparing your applications now (or what have you done differently if you didn't get in in the first cycle that you applied), in terms of: where you applied? how you communicated with programs before applying? asking/disabling social med
  22. I applied to quite a few Islamic studies programs, most having their application deadlines on December 15, it is now passed mid-January when should I expect hearing back from schools? I have received no emails as of yet...
  23. Hi, I have a question about the Admissions Process for Divinity Schools. My situation is a unique one (yeah, I'm sure this is the first time you've all heard that on here) anyway, I'm applying for the MTS/MaR at HDS, YDS, VDS, Union and Wake Forest Div. My undergrad GPA is 3.89/4.0 - INR My grad GPA is 3.96/4.0 - Religious Studies I battled Depression and sought treatment when I was 18 years old and right out of high school (I also had other personal and family problems going on during that time including a family member who was dying of cancer, etc.) and that coupled with imm
  24. Hi All, I'm currently applying to the MA in Religion at Columbia University for Fall of 2018. Aside from the information given on the department's website and that of the results page on GradCafe, I was wondering if anyone's applied to it before (or is currently applying), knows of the acceptance rate/number of applications received, funding status (department claims "partial tuition awards are given"), and any other information?
  25. Hi all, I am applying to grad programs in Second Temple Judaism and Christian origins, and I'm interested to know what you think my chances are of getting accepted. Master's programs to which I'm applying: MTS @ HDS, ND, Duke Div MA(TS) @ Princeton Sem MA in Early Christian Studies @ ND MAR in Second Temple Judaism @ YDS MA @ Toronto Education BA in Theology, minor in Classics (4.0) MA in Biblical Languages (4.0) [May 2018]* --- both from same evangelical university Languages Greek [classical &
