I am a third year PhD student at a top-tier institution who produced a life-saving study guide for comps in International Relations, and am looking for advice on how/where to sell it. It contains (1) summaries of about 400 key readings; (2) definitions of about 100 key terms; (3) links to class notes and completed practice exams; (4) lists of past exam questions from my department totaling around 40 in number; and (5) a chapter-by-chapter reading summary of the Handbook of International Relations, covering every topic pertinent to the field as it stands. The guide is about 150 pages long in total (not including the links mentioned in (3)) and is extremely comprehensive. All of it is written in my own words so can be memorized or recycled exactly for future comps without any risk of plagiarism. For health-related reasons, I am leaving my program and will not be taking my comps after all, so none of the material in the study guide has ever been used. If anyone has suggestions for how to sell this packet, or if you are potentially interested in purchasing it yourself, please respond to this thread! Thanks!
I am having trouble deciding between NYU and George Washington University for grad school. At NYU I would be studying International Relations at GSAS while at GW I would get an M.A. in international Affairs with a concentration in international development. My hope after obtaining my masters is to work for an NGO that focuses on trade and development and eventually go back to get a doctorate in International relations, focusing on trade, development, and economic relations. I prefer D.C. as a city in general as it is much nicer in my opinion, but I don’t mind New York either. I understand that both are going to be very expensive in terms of living which I can accept though I really hope to not have to share a bedroom which seems like the only option in NYC from what I have been looking at. I have heard from many professionals that NYU is a better choice because it is better known and higher ranked in general, though not necessarily for the field I am hoping to go into. *I might also mention that I was also accepted to American University for International Economic Relations. I absolutely love this school too (especially the campus) but have found that the majority of people I talk to have not heard of it, which seems a little scary to me. I like the idea of having a more focused M.A. After receiving my B.A. in International Affairs I was often told by employers that this degree seemed too broad. American would give me the opportunity to show a little more focus in my resume.
Does anyone know if the Atlantis Dual Degree offers full tuition and stipend for accepted applicants? I am not sure, since one of the years would be spent living in Germany! Also, how competitive these scholarships are? I have an LLB in Law from a country in South America, and an LLM in International Law from American University. I have many years of experience (4) working for a UN agency in my country and internationally.. I also did an internship at an international tribunal in The Hague. I speak english, spanish, portuguese, some french, greek and arabic and I will start learning german full-time.. I haven't taken the GRE yet, but will do it soon.. Any ideas?
