Gray Under Gray Posted March 16, 2017 Share Posted March 16, 2017 (edited) My decision is looming and it looks like I'm most likely headed for UIUC for my English MA. I was accepted with funding and a teaching assistantship. I'm from a small liberal arts undergraduate university in New England (total enrollment of 2,500, student-to-faculty ratio 13:1) located in a town of 7,000 people. I loved my undergraduate university and succeeded there. I wanted something similar for my MA (btw I'm going for an MA because my BS is in Secondary English Education. I'm not fully confident in my scholarly work yet. I plan on going for a PhD, someday). I hoped for a small liberal arts college on the east coast. Realistically, though, large schools often have better funding—SO I applied to UIUC (and some other larger schools). I applied the day the application was due (the same day my advisor sent me a link to their program); I knew nothing about the school. Long story short, U of I is easily my best offer so far (in terms of both ranking and funding), but I'm anxious about it for a myriad of reasons, including its total enrollment of 44,000 people! I've obviously read their website, but that's only so helpful, What should I know about UIUC's literature program? What are their teaching assistantships like? Any notable information on their women's and gender studies program? Other info or advice? THANKS!
