  1. All right, thanks. I will. I guess what my teachers had in mind was if I'm for example broadly interested in how Aristotle's ideas about women inspired 16th century gender discourse in Britain, I would be able to consider an issue like that both as a history topic (focusing more on how such ideas reflected in daily life etc) and as a political theory topic (parallels between Aristotelian discourse and the intellectual discourse of 16th century Britain). 5% vs. 10% can make all the difference though. For an applicant pool of 300 people, I could be among the 15 additional people that get admitted at 10%.
  2. For my specialism of political thought / intellectual history, I was told by my teachers at UCL that either PhD program could suit my current academic interests, depending on the supervisor. So it's really a question of which program is less competitive.
  3. Upper second class honors (2:1) from UCL, MA with distinction from UCL/Queen Mary joint degree. GRE 164 verbal, 159 quant, 5.3 (rounded) analytical writing.
  4. Dear all, My specialism is political thought and intellectual history. At top US institutions like Princeton and Harvard, would I have a greater chance of admission if I apply for PhD programs in history, or in political science? Which field is less competitive in top research universities? Thanks, Dem
