Hello everyone! I have this problem and would really need your help!

I am about to do a MSc starting this Oct, and it will end somewhere around mid Sept next year ( Sept 2017).

I want to do a Ph.D right after this (starting in 2017). I realized that most Universities in the State start around late August or early September. Therefore there will be a clash here. Has anyone had this problem before? Would I be able to join my PhD (if I get one) in this case since I will not be able to graduate beforehand.

In addition, I understand that people doing Msc usually don't have lectures and they will be working on their thesis in the summer which is not required to be on campus.

Please disregard any other factors such as GRE, IELTS and References, just focus on the time here because I have already sort those out and I would REALLY REALLY REALLY hate to wait year.

I'm sure US unis will have dealt with this before so it shouldn't be a problem. Just inform them. Make sure you check with your MSc uni about whether or not you're expected to be on campus. Here our MSc students submit their dissertation at the beginning of August and then are free to go.
