mirop Posted July 11, 2012 Share Posted July 11, 2012 I'm quite positive that many have asked this same question before, so excuse me if you've answered this one before. I'm a nontraditional student (in my thirties) who has just graduated from a public school in NYC with a BA in Art History. My GPA was just below a 4.0 in my major and just below a 3.8 altogether. I have professors who will write me very good recommendation letters, I've worked for the art department, and I know exactly what I want my focus to be in grad school (I wrote more than one paper related to my focus in undergrad). I know that I want to pursue a Phd, but I'm worried that I will be overlooked because my undergrad was at a public school. My advisor has told me to apply everywhere and see what happens, but I'm thinking I might be better off only applying for MA programs to save myself a bruised ego and extra application fees, and then I can apply for Phd programs after I finish an MA.
