  1. Slavic has never been a well represented field on here: but in just in case there are any other 2020 applicants on here I figured I'd start this thread. How's everyone season going? anyone heard back yet? Applied to 8 (NYU, COLUMBIA, BROWN, INDIANA, UIUC, UIC, UOFC, UMICH) heard back positively from 1 so far (UIUC) but that was the first week of january: since then radio silence. how's everyone else faring? im getting antsy + wondering if Brown and Columbia already sent out interview requests?
  2. Hello all! Just thought I would start a new thread for those of us who are or are considering throwing our names in for this round of applications. Of course, to some extent, this also operates as a "what are my chances" thread (as most "chances" threads do not apply to our speciality...) and a thread to discuss different programs and their relative merits. I graduated this past May with a degree in Russian Language and Literature. Last fall, I did some initial canvassing of websites and came up with a shortlist (from an already short list of programs available!) of programs and I'm working on narrowing those down and starting my applications. I'm living in Moscow right now and teaching English, not only to bolster my language ability and teaching skills, but also to be more competitive by having spent time in Russia (which is my area of interest) as I wasn't able to study abroad for financial reasons. I'm hoping to complete an MA and continue directly to a PhD in Russian Literature. Programs currently on my list are (more or less in order): Illinois U-C UCLA Ohio USC Northwestern Washington Indiana Harvard Initially, I was very interested in Berkeley and Stanford, but not many of their faculty have interests similar to mine, it seems. I'm mostly interested in translation and representation of women (esp. in Soviet literature). So, let's have it! Of course, I am also interested in current or past students of SLLC and your impressions and opinions.
  3. Are there any other Slavic Lang & Lit applicants out there?
  4. Is anyone applying for Slavic Languages and Literatures this go around? Seems like there are always few in the pool- but it's be interesting to see who's out there this year.
