jessicamarie Posted July 23, 2011 Share Posted July 23, 2011 Hey all! Here’s my question, in short: How in the world do I start narrowing down my list of possible grad schools? I'm hoping to apply to graduate programs this December so that I can begin in Fall 2012. I’m interested in a Masters or PhD in postcolonial literature, specifically focusing on transnational and immigrant literatures and the ways in which cultures are blending and interacting in the 21st century. But I’m not asking where you think I should apply (unless you have any ideas), or if I can get into those programs. I know that I need to do my own research! But I’m feeling very overwhelmed by the sheer number of English graduate programs, the myriad possibilities and choices that I have to wade through in order to find the right program. I don’t need to stay in a certain place, and I’m not sure yet if I should just get a Masters’ or go straight to PhD….so I just have no idea where to begin. Do any of you who are further into the process have any advice for me about how to narrow the possibilities? What are the basic things I can look for so that I can start creating a more manageable list to research? What was your plan of attack? Thanks so much!
