  1. It's best to get advice from faculty members on this front, but their time is limited, so I thought it might be useful for all of us gearing up for the 2021 cycle, or celebrating/healing from the 2020 cycle to talk about our apps and their weak spots. Here's a summary, I guess, of my app: Stats: GRE: V161 (88th percentile), Q151 (41st percentile), A5.5 (98th percentile) Undergrad GPA: 3.97 at a public research university Graduate GPA: 3.96 at a small, unranked rhet/comp program Teaching experience: worked as a TA (instructor of record) for two years, have adjuncte
  2. Hi Everyone! I'm applying to English/ Comp & Rhet programs for fall 2019. For my writing sample, I'm submitting a section of my Master's thesis and I'm wondering how to format it. Do I keep the cover page of my thesis so they know it's from a longer work? do I title it instead? Do I put my name?? for my SoP, I'm putting just my name and Statement of Purpose in the header--should I do this for the writing sample as well? I appreciate any insight--I've been out of school for several years and have no one to turn to for advice on small matters like these. Thank you!!
  3. I'm just curious about my list of programs going forward into the acceptance/rejection period. What would you hope for? Just curious generally what people think of this list and what the strengths and weaknesses are, where I can expect problems and where there might be hope. It will likely appear in my signature too, but just in case here's my scorecard currently: Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute STS PhD (Accepted) -heading to campus for visit Feb 27th MIT HASTS PhD (Likely Rejected) Northwestern MTS PhD (Likely Rejected) UC Santa Cruz Hist. of Consciousness PhD (Likely Rejecte
  4. I'm wondering if you kind people have found any good resources for understanding the professional life of Communications scholars. Job market reports are fine, but I'm also looking for more qualitative accounts of what being a Communications professor is like. For instance, what is the culture around publications and conference attendance? I'm especially interested in the impressions of people who have completed/are completing an MA, or are going through their PhD programs right now. There's a lot of ambiguity in this field, which makes this a harder task than say, Sociology, where a plethora
  5. Hi everyone, This is my first post on the gradcafe site. I've read things here throughout the years but finally decided I have a question I can't find the answer to elsewhere! I am currently applying to grad (PhD) programs for Fall of 18 in Rhetoric or Communications with a focus in rhetoric. I am finishing up my applications, but I was really hoping to get more information on Michigan Technological University's PhD in Rhetoric, Theory, & Culture. I know I should just ask the program directly, but there are only so many questions I can send out before feeling like a nuisance. I am re
  6. I'm applying for MA programs in composition and rhetoric. My academic and professional background reflects education and editing. (I currently work in technical writing. During undergrad, I student taught high school English and tutored in my university's writing center. I also spent a year copyediting the university newspaper.) I graduated with my BA in English in January 2016. Shortly thereafter, I landed my current job. In May of 2016, a history professor at my university contacted me and asked me to edit her book manuscript. She had asked one of my former English professors if he knew
  7. Hey all, I've been reading through the information on the forum over the past month or two, and found all of your insights incredibly helpful as I begin the process of researching and applying to graduate programs in composition and rhetoric. I've found that many comp/rhet programs require a master's degree before one is admitted to a PhD program, and those that don't seem to highly value those with a Master's Degree. I have a Master's degree, but am unsure it does me any good. Let me explain: I graduated in 2014 with a BA in English and History, then immediatly began an intensive, 1
  8. (copied from original posting on chronicle) Hey everybody, I've gotten a lot of great feedback from my last topic, which has been very helpful. In expanding my search for comp/rhet MA programs, I've come across many programs that are not exactly comp/rhet, but have at least one of the two fields, or are somehow related. For example, George Mason U's "MA in English with Professional Writing and Rhetoric Concentration" (http://writingandrhetoric.gmu.edu/programs/la-ma-engl-pwr) has the rhetorical element I seek, but it's missing the key compositional pedagogy aspect (which is impo
  9. Hey everybody, I am a recent college graduate, long interested in pursuing comp/rhet at the graduate level. I plan to apply this year for fall 2017 admission. Originally, at the behest of my English lit professors and advisors who didn't know any better, I thought I could go straight to the PhD. But in my own research, I've discovered that most people pursuing comp/rhet get their MAs first, so now I'm on the hunt for MA programs. Before I ask any questions, a little bit about myself: I have a plain-old BA in English from a small liberal arts college. I never took any formal classes i
  10. Question for you current PhDs: Does a great POI compensate for a program that has other failings? The two programs I'm trying to choose between are similar in rank, offers of funding, and job placement rate, but school A has the better facilities and more money for research/travel. School B has fewer faculty and less travel funding, but it has the POI I've wanted to work with since I first started applications. POI at school B has been the thesis advisor for a lot of rising stars in my field, and he has a broader range of research experience than the POI at school A. This is good fo
  11. I was just wondering if anyone is applying to these programs for the Fall 2012 and how your applications are going. It would be nice to talk to people in the same boat and maybe compare notes. (This also applies to grad students currently in these programs.)
  12. http://www.manifestoformediaeducation.co.uk/2011/02/antonio-lopez/ I just wanted to share a manifesto (of sorts) with you that has a lot to do with the disconnect between the humanities and environmentalism. Thoughts? Someone else made a post in this forum asking about rhetoric programs that have an environmental focus, so I'd also like to reiterate that question: do you know of any programs like this (MA or PhD), or maybe programs where the English/Rhetoric faculty have a significant interest in environmentalism? Thanks!
