frlgt Posted November 27, 2019 Share Posted November 27, 2019 Hi everyone, Would you say having no TA experience in MA counts as a disadvantage in applying for PhD programs? I know there's no definitive answer to this question but still asking in case someone knows for sure it's a minus factor. I'm currently in my MA (studying now in non-US institution, planning to apply for PhDs in a couple of years) and my department offers TA-ships only if you have no other funding source. Because I'm already receiving a scholarship from another foundation, I'm not eligible for departmental TA positions. Since most of my peers do TAs, I was wondering if I should keep looking at least for writing center TA opportunities, or is having no TA experience in your CV/resume no big problem?
