apatheticalliterations Posted March 2 Share Posted March 2 Hi all! Since admission results have been rolling in, I thought I'd start this thread for people to share some tips/advice on things to consider when choosing your offer for humanities phd. I saw a lot of STEM folks say that the match with advisor is a top priority, but for humanities, many of us will be working with an advising committee which makes the experience less one-on-one and more up to the department. Maybe current phd students can share your experiences, i.e. what are some things you wish you'd known when making your decision? For me personally, I'd love to hear some advice on how much/in what ways TAship affects the phd experience? I'm debating between program A with a financial package of 3 fellowship years + 2 TA years, VS program B with 6 full years of TAship. Program B is better-known, located in a better city, and stipend totals a higher amount, but is it really worth it if I have to TA 20hrs/week for the entirety of the program? If you are a recently admitted student with a similar dilemma, please share so we could all put in our two cents!! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
