Anonymous Questioner Posted May 7, 2013 Share Posted May 7, 2013 Hi, there! I am only an undergraduate freshman, so obviously I have a lot of time before applying to graduate school. However, I am eager to start preparing now. My fiction has been published in Tin House magazine, and I have several stories pending publication elsewhere (only one piece actually published so far, but hopefully more will come soon). I have taken one of the practice GRE tests in Literature and ended up with a mediocre score on it, but I have been reading extensively from the recommended reading list that is on the site (and enjoying every minute of it). Obviously, I am a voracious reader. In my first year in undergraduate, which is coming to a close now, I have recieved two official English department awards for Excellence in Writing Fiction and Excellent Work in Literary Studies. My GPA is a 3.2 (I am aware this is low. I recieved a fairly low score in a science class that through everything off, but I get As in all non-math/science courses). My majors are English (with concentrations in both literature and creative writing) and philosophy. My question is, as it stands now, does it seem that I have a chance to get into Cornell's joint MFA/PHD program in creative writing? I plan to apply immediately after I graduate from the small state college which I currently attend. Are my chances high? What can I do to improve them? Any advice at all would be wonderful. Thank you in advance! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
