    NYU PhD Political Science

    I'm a prospective applicant to the PhD program in Political Science at NYU. My focus is in the IPE arena, and I'm interested in working with Shanker Satyanath, Peter Rosendorff, or Eric Dickson. I'd like to hear from a current student or recent graduate of the program about funding opportunities (they seem generous), RA, TA, and fellowship opportunities within the program, student engagement with faculty, and perceptions of faculty overall. Is the general feeling that PhD students are well supported throughout their time at NYU? Side-comments about living in Manhattan (or maybe Brooklyn, more realistically?) are also appreciated.
  2. Hello, I am a political science undergrad student at a comprehensive university in Ontario, Canada. I currently possess a cumulative GPA of 3.78/4.00 and a major GPA of 3.91/4.00. I recently (two days ago) finished my 3rd out of 4 years of university and will be applying in September/October of 2017 with the marks I have already attained. I have work experience as a teaching and grading IR assistant at my university (going to be 8 months), as a trade policy intern at the Canadian Embassy in Washington, DC (4 months), as a legal intern for a prestigious international law firm (1 month), and as a Corporate Affairs intern at a Fortune 500 company (4 months). In terms of university extracurriculars I am the President of my university's pre-law society. I also have three strong letters of recommendation from my professors who specialize in IR--they attended St. Andrews, UofT, and UCambridge respectively. My dream MSc program is The London School of Economics & Political Science MSc International Relations. As an aside, it is my goal to pursue a PhD and a career in academia after completing this program. I wanted to know (from individuals who have been accepted/rejected to this program or similar) what my chances are of being accepted? I am also applying to the MSc in Conflict Studies (second choice) so an estimate of my chances for that program would be most appreciated as well. Canadian LSE MSc Minimum GPA entry requirement: 3.3/4.0 (No GRE or GMAT required) 2017/2018 MSc International Relations acceptance rate: 11.14% (101/907) 2017/2018 MSc Conflict Studies acceptance rate: 17.14% (55/321)
  3. I'm a fairly advanced incoming student studying international political economy of finance (financial elite communities, global capital flows, banking regulation), with strong methods training I intend to build on. My final competing programs are UC Berkeley and Columbia, which each have solid merits for these focuses. The former has more senior faculty (VA, BE in dual appointment) where the latter has great new hires in that field (NG and AC, with ongoing searches, they assure me). Obviously the latter has an advantage of pedigree, but I'm looking for any and all advice on which program has a better fit for this field, and placement of students with this particular focus. Also interested in unspoken departmental norms (corroboration of rumors regarding Berkeley methods sequence incoherence, intolerable competitive environment at Columbia, etc.). Many thanks in advance, folks.

    UNC PhD Political Science

    I'm a prospective applicant to the PhD program in the Department of Political Science at UNC Chapel Hill. My focus is in the IPE arena, and I'm interested in working with Thomas Oatley, Layna Mosley, or Tim McKeown. I'd like to hear from a current student or recent graduate of the program about funding opportunities (is the program fully funded? this isn't immediately clear from UNC's website), RA, TA, and fellowship opportunities within the Department, student engagement with faculty, and perceptions of faculty overall. Is the general feeling that PhD students are well supported throughout their time at UNC? Side-comments about living in Chapel Hill are also appreciated.

    UVa Political Science PhD

    I'm a prospective applicant to the PhD program in the Department of Political Science at UVa. My focus is in the IPE arena, and I'm interested in working with Herman Schwartz or Sonal Pandya. I'd like to hear from a current student or recent graduate of the program about funding opportunities, RA, TA, and fellowship opportunities within the Department, student engagement with faculty, and perceptions of faculty overall. Is the general feeling that PhD students are well supported throughout their time at UVa? Side-comments about living in Charlottesville are also appreciated! Please feel free to PM me if preferred.

    PhD application help

    Hi all! I'm applying to doctoral programs this fall, and am looking for some advice. I have an Honours BA from a top Canadian university, with a GPA in my junior and senior years of just under 3.7. I did an exchange to the University of Edinburgh as an undergraduate. I also have a newly finished MA from another top Canadian school, with an A coursework average and a thesis which was called "one of the best we've ever seen." So, I take that as a good sign. I also have many conference presentations and a co-authored paper (with a professor) on my CV. I'm planning to write the GRE in August. My MA work focused on the behaviour of regional economic organizations during systemic financial crises. I'd like to build on this going forward, while branching out at the same time. Broadly speaking, I'm interested in the political economy of finance and investment, and in how factor endowments help determine state behaviour (especially regarding international cooperation and treatment of foreign investors). I have a running list of about ten doctoral programs I've identified as being good fits. I'm unsure about whether of not I could get into some (they'll be obvious, I hope), and about the quality of others (ditto). Any guidance — including other programs which might suit me well — would be most appreciated. The bold choices at the top are my top four, for now. USC is a big question mark, which I hope can be addressed. - UCLA - Berkeley - UCSD - McGill - NYU - Penn - Southern California (really interested in the people and program, unsure about quality/rep?) - Balsillie School at Waterloo/WLU (as above) - Columbia - NYU - Toronto I'd like to ultimately apply to 5-7 schools. I've left off the Harvards, Yales, etc. because I'm not confident I could get in. Is this reasonable? I want to be realistic about where I'll get accepted, and not waste money on long-shot applications…but, I also understand the academic job market, and want to come out of all this with a competitive CV. Thanks again. Also looking at: UVa, UBC, Michigan, GWU, and a few schools in the UK (LSE and the University of Edinburgh).
