Communications/Film/Media Studies PhD Applicants

Recommended Posts

Hello,

My question is for anyone who has been accepted to media related PhD programs. I'm looking to apply for Communications/media studies programs and wanted to know for those who have been accepted to these programs what type of background did you have:

- what was your GRE score?

- past college GPA's

- did you have any publication experience?

- did you have and related work experience in the field of communications/media studies/film?

- what school were you accepted to and what did they offer full funding?

Hi - welcome!

 

1. What was your GRE score? 163 verbal, 151 quant, 5.0 writing

2. past college GPA: BA - 3.4.  MA - 4.0

3. Did you have any publication experience?  Nope

4. Did you have and related work experience in the field of communications/media studies/film?  Not directly.  But I spent 10+ years in management at various tech companies, which -- given that I'm interested in online communicative communities -- probably helped.

5. What school were you accepted to and what did they offer full funding?  I was accepted at Purdue (full funding, guaranteed 4 years, 2 classes each semester), and MSU (full funding, but I declined before I got the details).  For other funding stuff, I've started a spreadsheet for people to record their experiences: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1r563bGkj3JsqGrnNKIct1phwgoqJou1ZKdq3iifhAdQ/edit?usp=sharing
