Do I need an M.A.? And did I screw myself?

My advice would be to definitely apply to one or two PhD that aren't high ranked but still might be a good fit for you academically. I was rejected from two high ranked programs, but I was able to get full-funding for a doctorate at a third-tier university. I found the education that I received in this PhD program is just as wonderful as it would have been if I had gone to the other two schools.
Hmm, this is good to know. :-)
I'm really appreciating all the "get funded" advice. I didn't realize so many programs -were- fully-funded!

I would be careful with this. Sad fact is that prestige does matter when you're going on the job market.
