  1. A pleasure! I saw that topic very randomly and I had to reply
  2. I am not sure how does it work with waitlisted applicants, but if you are ever invited for an interview, it is almost certain that you were admitted to the program already.
  3. I’m currently a PhD candidate at UCI and I can confirm that everyone that I know in my cohort had interviews before receiving their admission letters. The interviews were not like really official interviews, but they were some sort of a check-in before the school sent admission letters.
  4. I was a Fulbright Scholar at NYU MA. The stipend is $2k. It's barely enough even if you live far enough in Brooklyn or Queens. Rent for a room in Manhattan can easily be higher than the stipend.
  5. The answer from Georgetown: "Georgetown is on Easter break now but we'll get back to you after the break with an update (hopefully tomorrow)" I don't know if the update will be on the decision, or if it will be simply something informing us about the waitlist.
  6. I don't think it's worth the investment. Lack of interaction with the faculty, and one year is not enough to get strong enough letter of recommendations. You can find many other ways to evaluate how strong was your application.
  7. This is what I wrote somewhere else. " Hi all! These are some answers that I sent to someone who is considering the MA Program at NYU. I thought it could be beneficial to submit the same information here. Answer about funding: I came here as a Fulbright Scholar, and when you have some external funding, GSAS waives the tuition fee. But other than that, I believe that some people did act as graders, although I do not know how much as the pay. Lastly, there were RA positions available (I was indeed one) but they are extremely scarce. Like, the first year there was only on
  8. I'm a student at NYU's MA and I'll update here today with some more info.
  9. Claiming a Georgetown waitlist. I don't expect much though. I've already accepted an offer anyways.
  10. Lots of people I know got accepted to the programs you mentioned with less competitive files than yours (no funding though). As long as you get good references and write good letters, I don't see any reason for you to be rejected.
  11. If you want to increase your chances in a comparative/American PhD , just try to take any quantitative class and research project you can find there. In your position, your undergrad career should be sufficient to prove your qualitative skills anyways.
  12. I have a friend who finished Columbia's MA program last year. She's been applying to places for the last two cycle. Didn't get into somewhere unfortunately. I know her personally, she is ambitious and I believed that she had a great potential to be an exceptional political scientist, but she couldn't get into the programs that are not T10. Therefore, Columbia's MA might not be very cost efficient. Additionally, I assume that you are applying for theory sub-field due to your philosophy background. But, if it is comparative or american, it really helps to have some quantitative education a

  14. I am sorry to tell you these news but UCI is probably done. The visiting day is on March 3, and the last day to RSVP was February 15
  15. And, for those who may consider the MA Program at NYU, you can shoot me a message, I am getting my MA from NYU Politics Department this semester.
