Thinking about a PhD? How do I apply What are career opportunities?

How do I apply?
Questions in this section relate to the procedures of actually applying to PhD programs.

  • Will I have to retake the GRE before applying?
  • What are my chances of being accepted into a PhD program?
  • What should be on my statement of purpose?
  • Should I include a curriculum vitae (resume) in my application? What is a curriculum vitae?

    How do I apply?

    Will I have to retake the GRE before applying?

    The answer to this question depends on the requirements of the programs to which you are applying. Some programs will accept your prior GRE scores, but some programs will require you to retake the GRE if a certain period of time has passed since you took the GRE. Don't let having to retake the GRE deter you from a PhD, however!

    What are my chances of being accepted into a PhD program?

    There are no statistics on the rate of acceptance into PhD programs. What may be the more important question to consider is why people don't get accepted into PhD programs. Acceptance into a PhD program depends on many factors that are specific to the institution/department, as well as on the characteristics of the applicants. Realize that if you do not get accepted into a program, it may have less to do with your qualifications and more to do with insufficient funds to support you, or that the advisor you wish to work with does not have an available space, and so on.

    Apply to the programs that you have identified as a good fit with your interests and needs, and if you do not get accepted into the program inquire as to why you were not accepted. You may need to consider re-applying to a particular program in a subsequent year.

    What should be on my statement of purpose?

    Some institutions provide explicit guidelines for the statement or purpose on the application, whereas others provide little guidance. When less guidance is provided, an applicant may be unsure what the program is "looking for" in a statement of purpose.

    Some content the programs may be looking for in the statement of purpose includes the following:

    • Why are you interested in entering a PhD program? That is, are you interested in an academic and research career?
    • What has motivated you to seek the PhD?
    • What are your areas of interest?
    • What background do you have in research?
    • What are your academic and personal skills that make it likely you will succeed in a research doctoral program?

    Don't be shy about advertising what makes you a strong candidate! At the same time, make your long-term career goals evident.

    Should I include a curriculum vitae (resume) in my application? What is a curriculum vitae?

    In your application, you should definitely include a curriculum vitae (CV). Think of a CV as an expanded resume. For academics, the CV is a record of the person's accomplishments - employment, publications, professional activities including editorial review, professional presentations, and so forth. Inclusion of a CV in your application provides a clear, succinct presentation of your accomplishments and can highlight your strengths as a candidate.
