A Little Secret for Applicants




Shh! I`ll tell you a little secret....There seems to often be a disconnect between what the universities officially want and what they will actually accept. If they ask for a Ph.d but you only have a Masters, that may be enough. They can`t publish that fact, but in fact, they will accept the MA. The same goes for when they ask for a Masters. In some cases they will accept a BA but cannot put that in writing on the internet. What I am saying is: Give it a shot, and apply, even if you do not have the exact requirements. You may well get hired. As well, if you know someone at said institution, use them as a reference, they may well get you in!
