  1. Next year I'll apply to political science Ph.D. programs. I am currently studying a terminal MA in Political Science, but my BA is in Econ. Since my background is more quantitative than qualitative (the MA program I'm studying is also fairly quantitative) I'm interested in applying to quantitatively oriented programs. I know that Rochester, WUSTL, NYU, and UCLA have very quantitative programs. Could you recommend me other programs with a similar focus? I'm interested in both American and European programs. Thanks.
  2. Hi, I'd like some advice regarding decisions regarding graduate study. I will graduate in Physics from a university in India, and I wish to shift to social science, particularly econ/pol sci/quant sociology etc., where I can use quantitative methods but also have qualitative and philosophical arguments. I received admission to the Econometrics and Mathematical Economics MSc (10 months) at the London School of Economics, which is one of the best as far as I know if one intends to get into a top US PhD in Econ. I would however, prefer to be at the intersection econ and pol sci, or mayb
  3. All, Bottom line up front, I am trying to decide on exactly which side I fall of a particular line. My deepest interests lie in International Political Economy and Economic history, specifically sanctions, conflict in the context of the liberal world order (military, diplomatic and economic), American Grand Strategy, deterrence, foreign aid and the weaponization of second world countries by first world countries through investment, proxy players and their effects on the global economy, formation and break up of supernational government organizations and the reactions of G20 governme
  4. 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
  5. Greetings everybody! I am a second-year graduate student and I intend to apply for PhD programs in the 2017-18 cycle. I am specifically interested in the area of IPE. I would appreciate if anyone could evaluate my profile and give me some insights in application. Below are some of my experiences Undergrad: a Chinese university that is famous for IR research Major: English Language and Literature Undergraduate GPA: 3.60 Graduate School: a famous US university with top ten ranking in IR (according to Foreign Policy survey) Graduate program: MA International Trade an
  6. Hello everyone, So I am applying to PhD programs in Political Science in Canada as an international student. I already sent most of my applications but wanted to get some opinion from other people about my chances. I was accepted to all these schools that I applied for Master's two years ago but I couldn't attend since they did not provide funding for international students. I am trying again for PhD this time which is way more competitive than Master's programs. I would appreciate any kind of comment about my profile and possible chances. Undergrad/Grad: Top Research University in
  7. Hi guys, I'd really appreciate it if someone could evaluate my profile for PhD applications at Political Science Departments. My background isn't exactly traditional (just left corporate job in finance) and I'm worried it will hurt my chances. Let me know what you think, please! Program/Institution: PhD, Political science/ political economics, HKS, Stanford, MIT, Princeton, Brown, Rochester, Ohio State, NYU, Chicago Harris Interests: Political economy of development, economic growth in South Asia, Governance and role of private sector in economic policy Undergrad In
  8. Hello, I am an undergraduate looking to apply for political science or political economy phd programs this coming fall. I am a political science and economics double major, but have not taken many stat/math classes. There are online calculus classes available this summer, and I was wondering if taking such courses is significantly important in showing your quantitative research abilities and skill assets in the admissions process. As of now, I am working on my senior honors thesis in the econ department and studying for the GREs. As the deadline for enrolling in the online cla
  9. Anyone else here admitted to the Duke MAPE program? Wondering if the class size will indeed be 3-7 as mentioned on the website!
  10. Hello All! Thanks to all who share and contribute here. This is my first post here. I am interested in a PhD focusing on Political Economy of African Development with a focus more on economic development and growth, democraticization and governance. I am not particularly keen on the conflict/civil war aspect of political economy of African development. 1. What programs, institutions in the US are ranked highest? 2. What professors are the leading thinkers and researchers in the field? 3. Would you recommend pursuing this via a Political Science Phd or an Economics PhD?
  11. Does anyone have any advice for good programs in political economy, specifically comparative? I have a list of a few schools, but I am trying to expand it a bit. UC Berkeley, Yale, Duke, and University of Michigan. These are all top ten schools, maybe someone can recommend a few others that I should take a closer look at (they do not have to be top 10!)
  12. I was wondering if anyone knew of good political economy programs for a PhD track? I have some interest in IR but really enjoy the economics part combined with polisci.
