WSU PhD vs. UT Austin MA - HELP!


Recommended Posts

I'm in intense need of advice. I gained admission from UT Austin's MA program in Media Studies and from Wayne State University's PhD program in English on a film studies track. I visited both schools and while I loved the weather in Austin, I felt more academically drawn to the courses offered at WSU. And I am undoubtedly drawn to the location of Detroit as it's been home for me and since the city is undergoing a huge revitalization. But I feel really torn. Will going to WSU hinder my job prospects? Would I be better off going to UT Austin for a master's and then re-applying to a PhD program? Or should I just take the year off, spend it in Detroit, continue working on my research/publications/presentations, then reapply for my PhD in the hopes of getting into a top-name school w/ funding?

Any info/advice is much appreciated!
