The primary problem I'm having is that if I do decide to go the PhD route? I should have made these decisions a year ago, while starting my first semester of my MLA.
For now, let's assume I'm diving headfirst into the PhD circus.
Things Most Universities Want For Admissions
So I have two choices:
I can either wait a year, take the subject GRE, build up a stronger portfolio, maybe try and get published god-knows-where, and then apply all over the place and hope I get in. Or, I can dismiss the schools that want both the general AND subject GRE, pray everything gets there by the deadline, pray they are cool with an MLA instead of an MA, and hope someone accepts me for fall of 2011.
Waiting a Year
What do I do? Help me, lazywebs.
