WendyWonderland Posted April 11, 2014 Share Posted April 11, 2014 Hallo, awesome community ppl! The last week was quite a great plus torturing time for me. I got officially accepted to a MA program in English at Loyola Marymount University in LA, and an unofficial acceptance from CCNY in NYC, English and American Studies. I know for unfunded MA programs we are told to follow the money, but after doing the math it was quite the same since CCNY ‘s tuition is so much cheaper but the living cost in New York is EXTREMELY pricy. So I checked the program, for CCNY, it offers an exchange semester in Europe, it is a Joint Degree. Loyola’s courses seem really awesome, and the professors are really nice, the school is very helpful at helping students to find part time jobs on campus to survive. There is still a possibility that I could get a scholarship for the second year, and the weather is great of course. My ultimate goal is a funded PHD program in a very good school, so my question is, do you guys know at which school I would get more chances? I only applied to Ivy Leagues last fall, and they all rejected me, it was so depressing…anyway, I gathered myself together and I want to do a MA first to improve my English and academic skills and try again in 2 years. It is a big commitment of time and money, so I would really prefer some help! You guys here are so smart and much more familiar with the US education than me, can anybody help to give out some ideas or experiences? Does it matter if you attend a public school or a private school? I would appreciate the help a lot! Thanks in advance!
