Subject:        Your opinions please.

Calling all SHAKSPEReans,

It's been a while since I've posted to SHAKSPER, so this may be an
inappropriate and off-track manner of making my return.  Yet I need some
advice from the academic wisdom collected herein . . .

I have, in recent weeks, been offered admission to MA programs in
English/Literature to the following universities:  Alabama, American,
Clemson, and Truman State (formerly known as NE Missouri State U.); both
Alabama and Clemson have offered me research/teaching assistantships
though no such funding has been offered, as yet, by either American or
Truman State.

I have until June 5 to notify each of these schools of my intentions.  I
have researched each program and I do plan to visit both Clemson &
Alabama (the two campuses with which I am yet unfamiliar) early next
week.  However, I am still very much undecided in this matter.

While I am by no means relying completely upon the responses I might get
to this query, I feel I might benefit from the opinions of SHAKSPER
subscribers.

Obviously, Renaissance literature (in particular Shakespeare) is one of
my interests.  I am also interested in medieval literature and to a
lesser degree in 19th Century American literature.  Upon completion of
an MA, I hope to continue my studies in a doctoral program.

So, given these interests and intentions, I would appreciate any advice
any of you can give me as I prepare to make this very important
decision.

I realize that this is not a specifically Shakespearean matter, so I
apologize for its impropriety in this forum and thank you all for any
information and advice you can give me.

Lex Ames
