    I'm considering applying for a PhD in anthropology. I would just like to know from those with a background in anthropology whether it is possible to get accepted for a PhD in this discipline with a law background (undergrad and masters, low merit).

    I've seen that some universities do take on students from 'related disciplines' but I'm worried that I may be told to pursue a masters in the subject before applying, as my background might be considered too remote.

    Any help would be much appreciated.

    Thank you
