  1. Hello, I am about to go crazy. Please help me!!! I really need to decide between these programmes ASAP: LSE Comparative Politics (1 Year), Sciences Po Political Science(2 Years) or The Graduate Institute Geneva (IHEID) International Relations/Political Science (2 Years) Costs will be similar for me; with partial scholarships and the respective costs of living, overall costs are evening out. After the master’s degree (in an ideal world) I plan to apply for a DPhil in USA, I am not sure which one will be the best fit. I am slightly closer to IHEID as the classrooms are relatively small (35 students max.) and it is a 2 year programme. But Sciences Po is also 2 years, unlike 1 year LSE. I have 2 main concerns: Which one would prepare me best for pursuing a DPhil? And in case I give up or change my mind or basically get depressed which one has the best reputation to find a decent job in the third sector, IOs etc. I will be really happy if you can help me out :)))
  2. Hi everyone, I am an international student in comparative politics and was admitted to both programs. I am trying to make a decision between these two. I wanna figure out if I am capable of doing a Ph.D. during the year of my MA program. Any suggestions? What are the strengths and weaknesses of both programs and both institutions, and which would you rather choose, supposing that money isn’t a major concern? Thanks!
  3. Hi everyone! I’m new here and I’m incredibly anxious about my applications that I submitted. I was hoping to get some of your two cents on if you think I could possibly get in to any school that I’ve applied to! Here’s a quick overview of my profile: Bachelors: SUNY Oswego, New York GPA: 3.89 GRE: Verbal 161, Quants 160, AWA 5 Born in Mumbai, India (so I’ll be an international student). Experience: Political Science Honors TA in International Law for a Semester I built good professional relationships with some of my professors so I’m not too worried about my letters. I’m applying for a PhD with a concentration in IR. My undergrad majors were Poli Sci, Global Studies and a minor in Philosophy. List of schools I applied to: 1. UC San Diego 2. U Chicago 3. University of Illinois UC 4. Ohio State 5. U Michigan Ann Arbor 6. UC Davis 7. Northwestern 8. Emory 9. UW Madison 10. Yale 11. UT Austin I might send in my applications to Vanderbilt and Penn State as well. I’m not sure how good the program at Rice is (any opinions on that are welcome as well) Let me know what you think!
  4. Hi everyone! I really want to understand how different international affairs and public policy, as graduate courses, are. I am planning to pursue master's in either of the courses but haven't really been able to understand how different the career paths are for each. From what I've learned so far, it seems public policy focuses much more on quantitative skills like statistics, data and economics than IA. Moreover, some people have remarked that IA is too general or vague, especially in terms of profession. It would be really helpful if any of you could share your own experience. Some stats about me: I did my bachelor's last year in computer science engineering with a cumulative GPA of 9.96 on a scale of 10. Currently working as a data science engineer. I don't really have any experience in the relevant fields and am an international student hence I really am confused since most colleges seem to prefer students with at least SOME relevant background and international students may have limited work opportunities in the public sector.
  5. I am new here, so I apologize if this topic has been beat to death. I received my undergraduate degree from a no-name, low ranked LAC because of some issues I had in high school. I accepted this less than ideal situation and tried to do my best while I was there. I graduated Magna Cum Laude with a 3.93, and I was the top ranked political science student in my class, not that there was many. I got As in statistics, methods, all my poli sci classes, and I wrote a heavily quantitative departmental honors senior thesis I hope to refine and use as my writing sample. I have been working for the last two years as a Chief of Staff for a state legislator, but my goal since sophomore year has always been to get a PhD and go into academia. I have three professors, not the most famous, who I have gotten to know incredibly well. They pushed me to do a PhD, so I am hoping for three great LORs. As of now, I have a strong idea of what I want to study and how I want to study it. Other than that, I am going to take some online calculus classes to refresh my math skills and, obviously, aim for as high a GRE score as I can possible get. I have already started studying for the GRE with hopes to apply to programs this coming cycle. I am just wondering if my undergraduate alma mater is going to bar me from acceptance to the top 25 programs? Beyond that, my current target schools are University of Virginia, Brown, and George Washington which obviously rank outside the top 25. So any advice on how to improve my application? Also, thanks for your patience and congrats to all that are receiving admission letters. You deserve it.

  7. 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.
  8. Hi, I'm an international student with an interest in policy. My end goal is to become a consultant for government policy, and I was wondering whether looking into internships in US government entities is reasonable or a waste of my time. Could anyone help me on this?
