    @centinel Let me know if you have any questions about New Hampshire.

    Writing sample?

    If you didn't include a lit review that'd set off some serious alarm bells. With regards to length, you should think less about how long the review is and more on how complete it is. Are you engaging with the big hitters in your field? Have there been important shifts in the last 20-30 years? How does your work fit in with/challenge what has been said?

    Writing sample?

    Have you talked with the professor who will be supervising your thesis about doing something over the summer?

    Standard rejection from Brandeis. Now it's decision time between UNH and BC!

    Sorry to hear that about Brandeis, that's a damn shame. Congratulations on getting in off the waitlist however! You're right, you've got a lot of great options in front of you!

    Khakis, button down, and a sweater should be more than appropriate.

    Are you applying for MA or Ph.D? I got an email from the department chair a few weeks back.

    What are your guilty pleasures?

    Mine has always been poli sci approaches to far right extremist political organization. Something about competing theories around party systems and debates over old right/new right and fascism has always intrigued me. I first got interested a few years ago when I wrote a paper applying Katz & Mair's model of parties to the historical development of the FN in France and have been hooked on it ever since. I try to stay up to date on the major theoretical developments when I can.
