dgswaim Posted March 1, 2014 Share Posted March 1, 2014 I have a question for those of you applying to PhD programs from a terminal MA program. The reason I ask is that it seems likely enough that I won't be getting into any PhD programs on this, my first session of grad applications, given my general academic background (relatively unknown liberal arts university, poor early grades, etc.). My question is this: Do MA students generally wait until after they have finished their degree in the spring, and then spend the fall and spring of the following year to apply to PhD programs, or do MA students do it the way most undergrads do it and apply at the start of their last semester? Seems maybe that the former method would be more advisable, given that one would presumably be caught up in the process of writing a thesis and that sort of thing, but I'm curious nonetheless. My thanks for your opinions. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
