  1. 2017-2018 Application Cycle

    I really need this to be over. I'd give a lot to go back to a time when this was all done by mail and pretty much a black box from the day of mailing until receipt of results. Sighing.

    I got my MA acceptance at 11 pm on a Saturday from an email to check portal. I've seen others say same here. You never know.

    Anyone heard from Hopkins? Looks like this Friday has been a common acceptance date in past years.
  4. 2018 Interviews and Results Thread

    Anyone here claiming the JHU interview? Curious to hear more if so and you feel like sharing.

    From looking around online, I do get the sense that given it's lower-ranking in comparison to many mostly conventional political science programs, some less theory-oriented folks apply to it as a backup program. Not sure how that all plays out but I'm sure you have a great shot. Good luck!

    This is good to hear as its precisely why I applied so thanks. My application is a fairly odd one for multiple reasons so it may be a longshot but its good to have someone confirm what I had assumed about the department. My long-term hope would be to teach in the UK, anyways, so very happy to enter into a continental/theory heavy milieu.

    I've done a bunch of interviews in the past and almost every single time, I felt like I blew it. Odds are good that you did at least better than you think.

    I have a MA in Geography and have applied solely to Anthro programs but put in an application to Hopkins Pol Sci. I know little about the dept.s ranking and or its odds. I saw on Petersons they accept about 10%. Curious if anyone here has more experience or info about getting into the department. Thanks and good luck to all. I've been through this waiting game once before and it's always miserable.
