csariego Posted April 2, 2017 Share Posted April 2, 2017 Hi folks, I was admitted to the Mphil in Multidisciplinary Gender Studies at Cambridge but with ZERO funding (agh!!). I really want to go, but I don't want to put myself into debt for something that isn't "worth it". So I have a few questions for advice: - Does anyone have any advice on securing funding in alternative/creative routes other than just scholarship searches? - Does an Mphil line up with the goals of a PhD/JD degree? - Does anyone know how to tell how prestigious the program is? I'm having a hard time seeing where it's graduates are getting jobs. I'm considering the JD/PhD split because I really want to do Critical Legal Studies (most of whom are law professors) but i'm afraid of fucking myself over through accruing a ton of debt. I want to do a PhD but don't feel QUITE ready with my undergrad experience and would really like to have one big project (aka the dissertation) under my belt to set me up for a PhD. Also, I think I have a much higher chance of securing full funding once I have the Mphil.If anyone has any random advice around this I would really appreciate it! I'm super super conflicted over whether the Mphil is "worth it" or if I should wait and apply straight to fully-funded PhD/JD programs. I don't feel ready for that and would probably take time off, but love school so much and want to keep advancing myself in my academic goals.
