  1. In Latin America: FGV-EBAPE (Brazil) has a great public policy MA and is accepting applications for a few more days. I believe UFMG and UnB, also in Brazil, should begin their admissions season soon. https://ebape.fgv.br/en/programs/msc-phd/administration/enrollment-and-selection-process/information http://ppgcp.fafich.ufmg.br/selecaodocs.php http://ipol.unb.br/galeria-imagens/processo-seletivo-mestrado-e-doutorado
  2. 168V or 168Q? If V, perhaps it would be worth retaking the GRE if you are aiming at top 10 programs, since it would be slightly lower than Duke's average scores*. Overall, your profile seems really competitive on paper, but the admissions process is very noisy. If your SoP & writing sample are solid, I believe you have a good shot . https://gradschool.duke.edu/about/statistics/political-science-phd-admissions-and-enrollment-statistics
  3. I would just do a RA or pre-doc and apply directly to a PhD.
  4. I would just do a RA for a well-published political scientist in one of those universities. I don’t think you necessarily need another MA.

  6. Based on your description, Duke seems to be the better option (or perhaps Chicago/Toronto, if it happens to be much cheaper). Where have you seen the placements from Duke masters'?
  7. You got full tuition and stipend for the MA? As an international? Amazing!
  8. You should consider the fact that the median MAPSS PhD placement is around the same rank as UT Austin: In Political Science, 16 of 19 MAPSS applicants (84%) have funded offers. They include admits at UChicago (5), Notre Dame, UPenn, UCLA, Cornell, Ohio State, Texas-Austin, Oxford, UIC, South Carolina, Toronto, Wisconsin-Madison, Boston College, Florida, NYU, Vanderbilt, UVA, Indiana-Bloomington, Yale, Georgia, UC-Davis, UC-Santa Cruz, Kentucky, and Florida State. https://mapss.uchicago.edu/past-phd-placements-political-science
  9. + 1. Congratulations to everyone accepted, all 8 of you!
  10. Perhaps in other years. I doubt many had something like 4 or 5 CHYMPS offers. EDIT: I had two "top" offers, one CHYMPS and one T10.
  11. This predoctoral fellowship might be of interest to applicants looking for alternatives :)). https://research-princeton.icims.com/jobs/12427/predoctoral-research-specialst/job The Empirical Studies of Conflict Project (ESOC) is seeking applicants for its Pre-Doctoral Fellowship for Data-Driven Research. Participants are hired as predoctoral research specialists on a full-time, benefits-eligible basis for 12-24 months. This program provides an opportunity for recent undergraduates from historically underrepresented groups to gain real-world experience that will prepare them fo
  12. Claiming a rejection at Stanford! Cycle is almost over!
  13. Claiming a rejection at Yale :))! Congrats to anyone accepted.
