Hello everyone!

Do you think that faculty at different universities keep and update a blacklist for failed phd students in their field? I failed my phd and I tried to reapply, but unsuccessfully for too many times now.

Maybe I am just paranoid, but I was just wondering.

Thank you

Hello. I am currently an applicant for a PhD program in Audiovisual Studies in Italy. On Sept. 13th I have the admission oral exam. It is very difficult to keep me focused. I really want to succeed, but I need a peer to be understood and motivated in this challenging process. Is anyone willing to help me with this? I am not sure how, but we can discuss it. In exchange I can help with reading papers, dissertations, research, etc. Thank you for considering my request.

Unfortunately, I am not affiliated at a university right now. I am not sure how to contact people in my specific area of study. But I will try to follow your advice. Thank you so much.

Dear All,

I have a question for you. I am a former PhD student in Film Studies. I had to withdraw from my program because I fell ill. I am healthy now and I earned a BA in Psychology after leaving the US and coming back home (Italy). Now I want to re-apply for a doctoral program in Film Studies. But it feels almost impossible, given that I have been rejected three times since I recovered.

Therefore, my question is: is there a second chance in academia for students who failed once? How do scholars consider a student with a similar experience? Once a student's reputation is linked to failure, is there a way to break that link?

I really want to earn my PhD and I am not giving up, but I am also aging (I am 42) and I feel that I am running out of time. I believe many students are in my position and do not know what to do.

Thank you for any response.

Ok. Good idea. I guess I am frustrated and that is reflected on my writing so that then I get rejected. Thank you so much TreeofLife.

I have approached journals with topic ideas and they were not interested in my proposal.

So, I am trying to start publishing on academic journals. I am a Film/Media Studies Scholar and I need to build a portfolio of published articles. I have been trying, but with no luck. Does anyone have any suggestion about getting started and how to proceed? Thank you so much.
