  1. Also thank you, the looking through papers hint is very helpful, I'm now going through articles I've liked! and will do some more outreach to friends in anthro programs!
  2. Thank you very much!! This is very helpful. I was hoping there may be a more efficient way, but I'm not surprised there isn't 😆 I'm learning to really appreciate the departments that list at least a minimal note about faculty interests on the faculty page so you don't have to click through to every profile! haha Broad strokes of more information on my substantive interests: - land rights movements (including campesino, indigenous, and afro-descendent movements), agrarian reform, and agrarian counter reform - privatization of the security sector in rural areas (including
  3. Thank you, this is helpful! Yes, I was thinking of rounding it out with country and topic experts also, but I am perhaps most concerned about how to find methods experts, because my main motivation to go back to study would be to learn new methods and be able to apply them, since I have a lot of experience working in the countries in other capacities... but reaching out to people and seeing from there seems like good advice, thank you!
  4. Hi all, I am seriously considering applying to a PHD in the fall, in either Sociology or Anthropology or Geography or Latin American studies - (the methods I am interested in using and learning are used by a few different disciplines and I would be flexible, with the priority of finding faculty support for the kinds of research I am interested in) I have fairly specific research interests, including the types of methods I want to use (participatory action research, community based participatory research, and social cartography), the region/area of focus (Latin America, particularl

  7. hey ! can a moderator delete this thread? I moved my question to a better forum, I think. Thanks!
  8. Hey all, hoping to apply to Harvard's JD/MPP. Already accepted in the JD program and entering this fall (we can apply for the dual degree at the end of our first year. So wondering about my competitiveness for HKS' MPP. GPA: UG GPA 3.90 at top 5 public university (with well-known merit scholarship). GRE score: No GRE to date. Can apply with LSAT score (166, 93rd percentile) but I know that my LSAT score was very on the low side for HLS, so I'm wondering if it's worth taking the GRE this summer. Work experience: 1 year out of undergrad. Spent that year working with human rights
  9. Hello, I was wondering if anyone on here has experience/knowledge of the HKS joint JD/MPP program, and specifically the possibility of applying with LSAT scores. I am entering HLS this fall, and we can apply for the joint degree while in our first year. JD/MPP applicants at harvard can submit their LSAT scores instead of GRE/GMAT scores. Of course I would prefer not to take more tests/spend more time and money prepping if possible ( ) But I am also nervous because I was on the very low end for HLS LSAT scores (166, which is pretty well under their 25% of 170; 166 is 93rd percent
