I am planning on applying to the MA in English teaching assistantship at North Carolina State University this spring. The deadline isn't until February 1st, but I was wondering: is grad school like law school where it is an open secret that the sooner you get your app in, the more likely you will be able to get in? If so, then of course I want to apply now. Thanks so much!
So I received my first response today from one of the eight schools I applied to for an English PhD. I was admitted to the program but waitlisted for funding/TAship. I don't want to go into a program without funding and I was wondering if anyone had experience with this and how many of you ended up receiving funding after being put on a waitlist. Thank you!
What is the funding situation within the field of geosciences? I know that it is a good portion dependent on the schools that we apply to, but what is it like compared to fields like biology, chemistry, physics? Was it hard for people to get a fellowship, an RAship or a TAship within the field..... I wonder, because at this point I am bascially set for the programs I am applying to, and they all say that they fund their students, but I am wondering what the dynamics are for money with such a small group, field wise.
