Francophile1 Posted October 17, 2013 Share Posted October 17, 2013 Some advice needed: I am currently in a MA program and would like to apply to a different PhD program at the end of my MA. My MA program is actually linked to the PhD (and although I only applied for the MA) what they do is after you have passed the MA exams they review and recommend you onto their PHD program. I applied with the intention to decide later whether I wanted to pursue a PHD here, but now I am almost sure what I want to do is apply here as well as other places because I want to slightly switch the specialization. My question is, that I don't know how to approach the recommendation process. If I ask the faculty to write recommendations to different schools will they automatically be hesitant to accept me into their program? Basically I want to have an equal chance of applying elsewhere and being considered here as well. I am in French now, but for PhD I want to apply to French as well as Comp. Lit programs What are the politics of being considered for this school as well as others (in the most neutral way possible)? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
