  1. PROFILE: Type of Undergrad Institution: Large R1, not that prestigious but respectable Major(s)/Minor(s): Political Science, Philosophy Undergrad GPA: 3.8 Type of Grad: Political Economy Grad GPA: 3.7 GRE: 164/161/6 Any Special Courses: Letters of Recommendation: 1 from Master's professor, 2 from undergrad. Chose the professors who knew me best, not the ones who's name carried the most weight necessarily. Research Experience: Bachelor's and Master's Thesis, but importantly my master's thesis was not completed during application process which might have hurt. Teaching Experience: Subfield/
  2. Me too, but I'm assuming rejection at this point. Seems like the send out acceptances mid to late February most years but wait until mid to late March for rejections. Guess there's a chance, but seems like we're out.
  3. I think there are two reasons. The first is that departments are generally pretty good at selling themselves, so whatever attractive aspects led to one applying to a school are magnified during the visits. The second is that putting an actual face to a name makes things more difficult. Meeting professors and graduate students at the programs makes the possibility of attending the schools feel real. Instead of abstract thoughts about taking classes and performing research, it becomes more realistic to imagine oneself there. Instead of just a name that you've emailed with or a campus seen throug
  4. Anybody else coming away from visits even more confused than when they went in? Thought these would help clear things up, but they've only made me more unsure of my decision making process over the next month!
  5. I think that 11,000 number is all their graduate programs, or at least arts and sciences, not just political science.
  6. Anybody know if Georgetown is still rolling out or have they notified those accepted?
  7. I'm still waiting on a pretty significant amount, though with 3 of the schools people have posted results and I haven't heard anything either way.
  8. Any update on Georgetown? I saw the posts regarding unofficial acceptances, any word on official?
  9. I almost said 30 but then I wondered if it was too high. I think you're right.
  10. Congrats on the Georgetown admit! Regarding the GWU event, I'd probably put it closer to 25 or so. All 3 tables were filled up and had what, 8-9 seats each?
  11. GWU decisions are out, at least on the portal.
  12. Congrats to all the Columbia acceptances! Nice to know the previous posts were trolls after all. Any non-comparative Columbia acceptances out there? I'm assuming rejection at this point but maybe it's subfield related? edit: Rejection in portal. Oh well, congratulations to those accepted!
  13. Is it just me or has it been shockingly slow for this time of February so far this week?
  14. Still no claims on these Columbia unofficial acceptance posts?
  15. For those who like different rankings than US News, Foreign Policy along with TRIP released their 2018 Inside the Ivory Tower rankings for those of us interested in IR. Variance between this and US News is actually pretty high, specifically outside the usual suspects. http://foreignpolicy.com/2018/02/20/top-fifty-schools-international-relations-foreign-policy/
