I was feeling pretty let down with all the science-related results and stats threads stickied around here and wanted to start this up for all MA and PhD humanities and communication-focused applicants for the 2011 cycle
Maybe this can get stickied, too?
I actually only applied to one school (my alma mater) for this year... Undergraduate Major:
Writing (BFA) / Music Industry Undergraduate Institution:
USC (2010) UG GPA:
3.0 (Damn you, BFA!) GRE V:
650 (I know it could be better for a writer...) Q:
490 (Hey, there's a reason I'm not applying to engineering school, right?) W:
5 (whatever) Misc
Music writer for college newspaper (4 years), Director of Promotion/PR
for college radio station, radio station DJ (4 years), freelance journalist, music industry experience, currently working professionally in journalism Applied:
USC Annenberg MA in Specialized Journalism (The Arts)
Haven't heard back yet, but the application deadline was March 5 and I applied a little before then. I know I might be on the fence, but I think my professional experience as a music journalist, plus the fact my old professor is on the admission board and said he will fight for me, might be positives!
