Subject: PhD Program Preparation
Question: I am in my final year of an MA in linguistics. I have attended 3 conferences (only 1 professional one), will complete my thesis next semester, am a member of LSA and ADS, have teaching experience, have published a summary-style excerpt (not my own research) in an annual book, and am involved in many university organizations. I know that I will have good letters of recommendation, but my GRE scores are not great. Apart from retaking the GRE, is there anything else that I could do to increase my chances of acceptance into PhD program? Thank you for your time.
