  1. Congrats to any and all Duke admits. Has anyone gotten a rejection from UT? I'm assuming it's a lost cause regardless, but figured I'd inquire.
  2. Hi! Just wanted to mention that I received an invite via email today to Notre Dame's Prospective Students day. I am so excited because this is one of my favorite programs. Good luck to anyone else who applied there!
  3. Hi! Long time lurker, first time poster. I'm starting to look at which schools to apply to for PhD programs. I was wondering if anyone had some advice on schools of which rank I would be a competitive applicant. I'm looking for Fall 2020 start dates, and am hoping to soon make a list of all the programs I want to apply for, but I'm unsure where to start. Any insight would be greatly appreciated! Thanks in advance BA: Attended top 50 university, majored in English Literature, minors in Sustainable Development & Creative Writing. GPA 3.8 MA: Attended top 50 school in International Relations, with concentration in development studies. Receiving certificate in religious studies. GPA 3.6 (had a rough first semester due to personal reasons) GRE: 163v, 152q Research/Grant Experience: Received two research grants during undergrad for thesis research. Received Fulbright student research grant. Also done a few poster presentations at local conferences. Teaching Experience: Taught ESL for two years. Languages: English (native), German (C1), Hungarian (A2) LORs: Strong letters from current MA professors, might ask research advisor (sociology) from my BA too Research Interests: Development/IR focus Any feedback would be super helpful!
