  1. I would just do a RA or pre-doc and apply directly to a PhD.
  2. 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.

  4. Well, Chicago has the distinct advantage of always releasing past placements*, so you can have a better idea about your future prospects. Between Duke and UCSD, I would definitely go to Duke: the cost of living is considerably cheaper and the placement seems to be much better. Furthermore, the program accepts some of its own students for the PhD program. As a fellow international, I just wanted to remind you that doing a Master's at your own country can also be an option. I did just that and got wonderful acceptances. Of course, I don't know the specifics of Chinese academia, so your mile
  5. 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'?
  6. You got full tuition and stipend for the MA? As an international? Amazing!
  7. 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
  8. + 1. Congratulations to everyone accepted, all 8 of you!
  9. 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.
  10. 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.

  13. Have you tried checking Wolverine Access? My ApplyWeb portal also hasn't updated. https://wolverineaccess.umich.edu
  14. Just declined UT Austin. Hope this helps you!
