  1. This forum is clearly full of highly talented and highly motivated political scientists. May many of you become great scholars! I thought I'd take the opportunity and ask: What do you find the most exciting Political Science research? Any books or articles in particular that made you want to become a researcher yourself? Any pieces of work every future political science scholar should have read? Anything particularly novel and innovative?

  7. We should team up: the perpetual rejects. The challenge is to leave the team last.
  8. I go out and run 5 miles. This month, I've run 20 miles. So far.
  9. Seems like MIT need extra time this year. On their website's FAQ, it used to say decisions by Feb 15th. Now it says: "Are applications reviewed as they are received? Applications are not reviewed until after the December 15th deadline. Admission decisions will be made in late February." and below that the old version: "When will I receive a decision from Political Science at MIT? Decisions will be made in early February."
  10. Starting the day with some wishful thinking: Today, I am going to get admitted by my top choice.
