I mapped out my (possible) professional options the other day and there are like 20 different possible combinations of things that could happen this year, depending on which school(s?) offer me a place.
The final list was:
UBC - Language & Literacy Education
Purdue - English as a Second Language
Penn State - Applied Linguistics
University of Washington - English Language and Literature (Rhetoric and Cultural Studies)
Arizona State University - English (Rhetoric and Linguistics)
Arizona State Universty - Interdisciplinary program in Applied Linguistics
