    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.

    Neither, I received an acceptance packet in the mail.

    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.

    Research Experience Before Applying to Programs

    Talk to some of your professors and find out who is doing similar research. You're not confined to one area, but you should be aiming for a department that has people doing related work who can steer you in the right direction.

    Research Experience Before Applying to Programs

    I struggle to see why an MA in American history would interest you given your passions in German history.

    You and me both!

    Standard rejection from UMass Amherst this morning. I wasn't really shocked by it as I knew going in I wasn't a great fit with the department, but it's never a good feeling starting off with rejection.
