  1. I got an assignment to write an essay about society...and I wrote this...should I send it...or will the professor stab me ? WHAT NO ONE SHOULDN’T DO Prologue 1)I have to: People have needs People’s needs have to be met or else! When the fun people have, covers their needs, they don’t need to go further. 2)What people do: People organize actions to meet their needs. People deal with problems that appear on the way…well…on the way, and try to stay on target with meeting their needs. I
  2. 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

  4. Hello,, I would like to ask you a question.

As you can see I
  5. Hello, I am searching for fellow political science/social science students who are interested in a collaborative studies project. This is not for any class or course of study, merely a brain child that I have come up with. I am interested in the understanding of how to properly predict election results through the understanding of political, societal, economic, and other related factors. This idea is related to a concept that I had in which if the baselines of these factors in our current society can be established and consequently related to already existing theories related to these sub
  6. Hello fellow Earth Science friends, With the new administration coming into power I have been worried about the future of Climate Science and Atmospheric Science in General. I am a nontraditional student who studied GIS Earth Sciences for my undergrad and now wants to change course and follow my dream of studying Weather and Climate. I don’t want my research to be called a hoax to the public. The lack of Science in today’s public minds worries me. I am working a 9 to 5 job now after college that sucks the life out of me and I came up with the idea to chase a Master’s degree (possibly PH
  7. Hi! I am a recent graduate with a BA in Political Science and International relations from a university outside the US. I applied and have been admitted to NYU Politics MA, George Washington University Political Science MA, and CUNY Political Science MA. What would be your comments for these programs? 1. I aim for an academic career. I probably am going to choose Comparative Politics as my sub-field. I do not particularly like quantitative methods but feel obliged to learn them so that I can have a stronger PhD application. CUNY seems to be heavily qualitative, and NYU seems to
  8. HEY GUYS!!!!!! I THOUGHT IT MAYBE HELPFUL IF I STARTED A THREAD ON IR SCHOOL APPLICATIONS I personally applied for the Early decision FOR FLETCHER THERE ARE COUPLE OTHERS I WILL APPLY AS REGULAR DECISION, we could all wait it out together discuss and so on. SINCE WE ARE ALL NERVOUS. If you have applied or planning to apply for regular decision you are welcome too!! ALSO YOU ARE WELCOME TO DISCUSS ANY OTHER IR SCHOOLS THAT YOU APPLIED OR PLANNING TO APPLY!!!!! WE COULD ALL JUST BE SUPPORTIVE AND INFORMATIVE TO ONE ANOTHER HERE!!! GOOD LUCK GUYS!!!!!
  9. Greetings, Long-time lurker, first-time poster. I figured it might be worthwhile to get a reality check from some of my peers on here, as you all would know better than many of the real-world people I know about the MES world and what their admissions processes look like. I could really use some perspective and context about this matter, so some feedback would be greatly appreciated. I am in an unconventional situation where: a) I am adamant about transitioning into academia/the humanities to study the Middle East with a focus on the intellectual history of the Levant and
  10. Dear all, My specialism is political thought and intellectual history. At top US institutions like Princeton and Harvard, would I have a greater chance of admission if I apply for PhD programs in history, or in political science? Which field is less competitive in top research universities? Thanks, Dem
  11. Hey everyone. I'm really sorry if you've seen this sort of thread a billion times and have gotten sick of it, but I had trouble locating a thread like this that actually applies directly to me. I graduated this year with a BA from University College London, and am set to begin a master's course at LSE this fall. For my undergraduate education, I had to write a 10000 word dissertation based on my original research, and will have to write a 15000 for my master's course. After I am done at LSE, I hope to undertake a PhD in political science (focusing on political philosophy and
  12. Hello, I am an undergraduate student in Canada and am planning on applying to UK graduate programs in International Relations in Fall (September) 2017. I wanted to ask what programs have the greatest prestige, best opportunities for careers in academia, careers in policy, and foreign service that I could receive entry into. I finished my third year with a CGPA of 3.78/4.00, have experience working in the Canadian embassy in D.C as a Trade Policy intern, worked in a Fortune 500 company, President of my university's Pre-Law Society, and was a Poli Sci instructional assistant at my universi
  13. 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),
  14. hello, not sure if a lot of you guys are familiar with Sciences-po but it's quite big in IR/Development/Political science. I got accepted in the international development(ma) and was wondering if there was anyone else. one thing to mention is that i'm not sure if i'll accept the offer because i'm interested in educational development and it seems that Sciences-po doesn't have a lot of courses in education.. seriously considering if i have to apply for the 2018-2019 term for American GSEs (+European schools too such as Oxbridge GSEs specializing in education
  15. Out of curiosity, how many of you are worried about your career in the sciences in this political climate, because it's been bothering me a lot. Do you have faith that things will turn out alright? How are you coping and does it really affect you? I've personally applied to one Canadian school in addition to US schools, and because I'm more in environment-related sciences, I'm having fears and doubts about whether or not I should just go to the Canadian school instead. Honestly, the state of science in the US is worrying me more than my pending applications right now.
  16. Hey guys, I'm looking for some general information as I know nothing about grad school applications. I'm interested in doing a Ph.D in sociology or political science (I've taken plenty of courses in each, though my B.A. will be in public policy) and I'm wondering how competitive admissions are to top schools like HYP and Columbia for a student that graduates magna cum laude (3.7ish) from a top-15 liberal arts college. If GRE scores are important, assume the equivalent of around a 2100 SAT. Thanks!
  17. One the professors I asked for a letter of recommendation has not yet responded to my request. It has been three days since I sent it her the email (I live in a different state, so couldn't ask in person). I haven't seen or spoken to her in three or four years, but I felt like we had a fairly good relationship when I was in school, I got an A in her class, and she advised me to apply for a distinguished majors program in my department (which I was accepted to), and she's written me a number of recommendation letters in the past for internships, etc. I don't necessarily think this is her subtle
  18. I just took the GRE and my unofficial scores were 170 verbal and 156 quant. Though I am ecstatic about my verbal score, I'm a little worried about my quant score. I want to go to a top international relations MA program and I'm worried the 156 won't make the cut for those schools, even when balanced out with my verbal score. Background Undergrad: UVa Undergrad GPA: 3.77, graduated PBK 4 years of work experience in my field, one year of which was spent abroad in Cairo, Egypt. Verbal: 170 Quant: 156 Writing: Not yet scored I think I could improve my score
  19. I'm surprised that people haven't talked about the political leanings and "vibe" of different schools and media establishments. I want to stay in the Bay Area, and Berkeley and Stanford seem to be the only two MJourn programs here. Berkeley has a strong social justice vibe. Over the years, I've learned that progressive schools and publications do not want to hear what I say, despite the fact that I'm a marginalized minority as well. My impressions of Stanford is that they have more of Silicon Valley's social enterprise culture. Still liberal, but less activist than Berkeley's
  20. I'm a recent Georgetown grad currently enrolled in a MSc program at LSE starting this fall. Staying in academia is my dream right now, but I'm not sure how feasible it is. I might not have the brains, but I have the passion. Ideally, if I were to go into research, I would start my PhD directly after my MSc program ends (Sept 2017), only I realize this is crazy soon and I'm lost. My interests are in Northern Ireland and Anglo-Irish politics/law, and the goal is to stay in the Isles (i.e. LSE, Kings, UCD, Trinity, Queens Belfast, etc.). I've kind of start browsing their websites to see thei
  21. Hey everyone, Starting this thread for those of us waiting to hear back from Oxford's Department of Politics and International Relations. According to the Oxford website, tomorrow (Friday) begins the two-week window when we are most likely to hear back. Based on this survey, it looks like some DPhil applicants have already received their decisions. I figured this would be a good place for us to share information and wait and whine together! I applied for an MPhil (Comparative) and for the MSc in Politics Research. Recently completed my undergrad in Political Science in the US. And v
  22. Hi everyone, I've taken a few cracks at my SOP. I'm applying to Brock U's Social Justice and Equity Program and want to make sure i'm on the ball. Can someone please review for me ? STATEMENT .docx
  23. Hey all, I'm applying to graduate schools this fall and was wondering if I could get some advice on where to look. My main focus right now is applying to Cambridge for their MPhil in Political Thought and Intellectual History. I'm Canadian and my GPA for history should be around 84-85% or higher once I graduate. I'm currently doing the second of two additional semesters in my BA in order to complete two research seminars for my joint honours degree which I recently switched into (I was an English major and history minor for most of my degree, now it's joint honours English and History).
