  1. Hi there! I received an offer for the MSc in Political Theory at LSE 2020/21 and am currently looking into housing options. I am a bit confused as to whether I would have to choose an hall that has accommodation for 50 weeks, or whether I would only be required to be on-site for the 30/39 that most halls provide. The webpage of my programme states that it is 12 months full time, but I cannot find anything as to whether that would actually entail 12 months of teaching in London? If anyone has an idea about how the academic year is structured and whether I should try and get housing fo
  2. Hey everyone, I'm new to this forum and have never posted in places like this before so I apologise in advance if this is the wrong place for my post. I'm a Canadian student at an okay university in Canada. I would like to pursue a master's degree in IR/global politics/public policy or something along those lines. Ideally, I would like to study in Europe, preferably at LSE. I am also open to applying to other schools like Sciences Po, King's College, and maybe even the Graduate Institute in Switzerland. I have a year of school left and my cumulative GPA is a tad bit under 3.4 but I am hop
  3. A thread for political science and global affairs applicants 2020! A place to share worries, post decisions, and wish each other good luck!
  4. Hi all! I am graduating in December from a US university (MA International Studies and MSc Business Administration) and prospecting grad programs for admissions in August of 2021. As I gathered information about the respectability of social science degrees and universities in Europe the dual degree program launching in 2020 from LSE and SciencesPo stood out to me. It includes Double Degree in the Political Economy of Development (new for 2020 entry), with a Master's degree from the Paris School of International Affairs of Sciences Po and the MSc in Development Management of LSE’s Department of
  5. For all those waiting it out
  6. Hello So title says it all I need different opinions to know what I should eventually improve before applying to grad school Firstly I know that you are not admission officers but I hope that you'll be able to help me/give me directions in terms what I should improve on my application I'll post relevant facts for application so you can actually see the real situation here: Ok so here we go: I'm 21 I went to International school and graduated as a valedictorian in 2017. I spent one academic year in the US where I attended prep boarding school as a scholar of the US Embassy. During that summe
  7. Hello all, I've been admitted into and need to decide now between: 1) MSc Sociocultural Anthropology @ Oxford 2) MSc Anthropology and Development @ LSE 3) MA Anthropology @ The New School for Social Research 4) ---- waiting to hear back from MA Sociocultural Anthropology @ Columbia The teeniest bit of background possible: I'm 1-year out of Uni from a small, liberal arts college in the USA, BA summa cum laude in Anthropology with concentrations in Political Science & Arabic. My field of interest is refugee humanitarianism (specifically humanitarian/na
  8. Trying to decide between1. LSE MSc International Political Economy (1 yr)2. Dual Degree with Sciences Po (International Economic Policy) and the University of Toronto (Global Affairs) (2yrs total)My background is in Investment Banking in Canada. Interested in moving towards a career at the OECD, World Bank, UN etc.Although LSE ranks higher than Sciences Po in most areas I'm concerned that I won't be as competitive without having an internship during my degree.Hoping for some help!Cheers
  9. I’ve been accepted to a number of masters programs, of which I’m seriously considering the following: - LSE's Msc. in Economics (2 year programme) - Duke's MS in Economics and Computation (40% tuition waiver) - Columbia's MA in Economics - NYU's MA in Economics - Tufts' MS in Economics (80% tuition waiver plus TAship) I currently work as an analyst for a government agency with a pretty heavy research component. My goal is to eventually pursue a PhD, though I’m not as competitive a candidate as I’d like to be quite yet (missing certain courses, eg rea
  10. Hey y'all. Worried about my chances of acceptance into philosophy MA programs. As of right now, I know I am for sure applying to San Francisco State, California State Los Angeles, London School of Economics (MSc in Philosophy & Public Policy/Philosophy of the Social Sciences), Wayne State University (I'm already accepted into the AGRADE program there, so this is my backup), and the University of Missouri St. Louis. Possibly also applying to Georgia State University and Northern Illinois University (depending on if I can take the GRE in time). Here are my stats: GPA: 3.75 Philosop

  12. Heyyyy Guys! Just got admitted to LSE MPA and SIPA'S MPA and MPA-DP. My aim is to work on international development and at global initiatives and agencies (such as UNDP, FAO, USAID,etc). None of them have offered me funding. But, from what I have heard is easier to get student loans and/or second-year funding at SIPA. But, LSE's tuiton fee is significant lowe. But I love Columbia. I am quite confused. Any advice? Anyone on the same boat. Also, I have to decide between the 2 SIPA programs.
  13. Anyone who's completed a 1 year Master's at LSE able to speak to the pros/cons of the school? I was recently accepted to the MSc in Conflict Studies and would love some input on the benefits and drawbacks of the program/school/city. Anything at all would help!
  14. Hi all, I have recently been admitted to three programs: Georgetown's MA in Conflict Resolution, Boston University's MAIA in Diplomacy, and LSE's MSc in Conflict Studies. I cannot for the life of me decide which school would be the best fit, so I'm hoping that someone here has either attended one of these schools or can offer insight into which program sounds the most compelling. Here is what I know so far: Georgetown Tuition: ~ $50k USD per year for a 2 year program Great career centre/job prospects post-grad Perfectly located for internships/careers in diplomacy
  15. Hello, all! I am in desperate need of advice. I applied this cycle to 9 PhD programs in Public Policy and was rejected from all 9. While this is largely speculative, I believe my biggest weakness in terms of my apps was my lack of quantitative/math/econ training (qualitative BA and less than stellar GRE score of 156). Aside from that, strong undergrad GPA from UC Berkeley, senior honors thesis focused on policy, 1.5 years of research/evaluation experience in the industry, 2 years of RA work for 2 professors. I now have the opportunity to complete an MA and hopefully compensat
  16. Admitted to one year MA in Econ at Columbia, two year MSC in Economics at LSE. What will be better in terms of job perspectives??
  17. Hi, Can I ask about my graduate school prospects? I'm technically not an econ major so I'm a little concerned. I go to a Canadian school (one okay for econ, think U of T/UBC/Queen's) I'm a Business (Honours) and Math double degree student, GPA around 3.9 total and 3.95-ish for math and econ courses. Unfortunately, I have an A- in Probability I (which is the standard Calc III-requiring Probability course) and A- in Rudin real analysis. I've gotten A+ in the introductory and intermediate micro-macro sequence. Will be taking advanced of both next semester, as well as applied econ
  18. Hello All, I applied to the MSc Statistics at LSE and was rejected in only 2.5 weeks. Is this strange? I have a 3.74 undergrad GPA (and spent my senior year abroad at the LSE). There are certainly weaknesses in my application, but for some reason, I thought it might be slightly odd that my profile would be rejected so soon... Lastly, they said they sent an email, but nothing has been received from my end. Appreciate any thoughts on this!
  19. Please tell me everything you know about support letters! I just found out about them and i'm feeling completely lost!
  20. Hello! Just curious if anyone has applied to LSE for next year? I applied for the MSc in Applied Social Data Science (1st choice) and MSc in Public Policy and Administration programs late October. The website says we should expect about eight weeks to hear back, but I wonder if it might take longer given the holidays. I'd be interested to know anyone else's experience!
  21. Hi! Looking for advice from someone more familiar with the London uni scene, experiences, etc. I recently received unconditional offers from LSE (Politics & Communications) and Goldsmiths (Political Communication and Media&Communications). While the LSE is currently my top choice (for obvious reasons such as world class lecturers, prestige, networking opportunities, etc - also that my husband will be studying there and going to the same uni would probably make our daily life easier), I also wonder whether I might be discarding Goldsmiths purely due name-dropping value (w
  22. I am filling out applications for master's degree programs at various universities and sort of had an epiphany with regard to the SOP/LOI.Currently, I am working on an application for a dual degree program as well as a master's degree program both of which follow the same admission procedure. My concern is, even though I have provided separate inputs (relevant to the subject matter) to the respective personal statements, a major chunk of the information provided in both the statements is somewhat similar. Since the admission committee will evaluate my application on the basis of preferences:-
  23. Hello Everyone. I'm an Economics undergraduate student at Università Bocconi. (going on exchange at the University of Virginia on spring 2018). My GPA is 26,7/30, but 27,5 if we concentrate on quantitative/economics subjects. I have taken the GRE (164Q, 163V, 3AW). I have sincerely outstanding academic refererences and I think I have written a very well balanced personal statement. No working experience, good IELTS and I speak fluently french, too. I know that at LSE they look a lot at the average, and that is my flaw together with the 3 at the GRE AW (however, I got 93% on verbal.)

  25. Does anyone know whether the order of programs chosen (i.e. first choice and second choice) are reviewed separately for the Sciences Po graduate program? My first choice is the Dual degree Programme with Columbia's SIPA (School of International and Public affairs) in International Public Management + a Human Rights degree from Sciences Po PSIA. My second choice is the Human Rights and Humanitarian Action degree at Sciences Po. In the application, they list both personal statements one on top of the other. I had originally thought there would only be one statement needed. So now I'
