Woolfiac Posted August 29, 2011 Share Posted August 29, 2011 Any students or alumni who can give me a heads up? I spoke to a current graduate student in the department, and received a positive review of the school. I intend on going to a PhD eventually, but desperately need to improve my writing and RESEARCH skills. Any advice. Also I applied with a 770 Verbal/690 Math/ 5.0 AW . . . I'd like to think the V portion makes me a shoe-in, but of course I know that is not true and thus have some misgivings about my app. For example, instead of ONE research paper, as requested by the application, I submitted TWO short non-researched critical essays. I accounted for this in my Statement of Purpose, though-- I don't think that my research papers show my best work, and that's why I am going into the MA. Yeah, clearly having that high V score does not equate to making good decisions. My GPA is not outstanding, and I have a-many science course withdrawals, but IDC that much 'bout it. MOSTLY, I am more than a little worried about my app since this is the only program I have applied to. Also, I'd really love to connect with Woolf scholars!! I read lots of Woolf work, but have not theories related to her. Just happiness while reading her Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
