  1. How did you feel about the coursework/research in your Cambridge M.Phil? Level of difficulty compared to undergrad, how in depth it was and how much you feel you learned, and how much work was required for your thesis? (I'm interested in the program)
  2. Has anyone gone through the Cambridge M.Phil in Politics and International Studies (formerly International Relations)? It's a 9-month program -- which seems a little too short to get a whole lot out of --- but at the same time seems like a great option if you have a lot of exciting stuff happening in your career. Any thoughts on the program or similar programs?
  3. What country are you from? I think the connections you'll make at Princeton will sufficiently make up for the clout that Havard carries in your country. That's not to say you won't make connections at Harvard, but I think you might be overestimating the difference that Harvard would have in your career prospects vis-a-vis Princeton.
  4. Thanks for the great info. I'm interested in cybersecurity policy -- Oxford has great stuff going on for the field, so I wonder if LSE's edge in methods training would outweigh Oxford's advantage in the field in general.
  5. Really interesting. I have a B.A. from an Ivy and will be self-funded. Does that line up with what you've seen? Are the classes not quite rigorous? How do they dull people complete the program?
  6. Does anyone have any experience with M.Phils in PoliSci/IR at Oxford and/or Cambridge? I'm an American wondering how competitive I will be for admission. I know they don't only accept Rhodes/Gates scholars, but is basically everyone a rockstar student? Thanks for your help in advance.
  7. Hey all, I've heard lots of talk lately about how PoliSci/IR programs are moving much further towards crunching numbers than doing qualitative analysis. I took the GRE recently and scored a 170V/160Q (AWA TBD, likely 5+). Would a 160Q (73rd percentile) be sufficient for admission to top programs like Stanford, SAIS, SIPA or something similar? I don't have a serious math background, but I'm quite confident with stats, and work a PoliSci-focused job at a major tech company where I do a ton of data analysis.
