Syracuse Maxwell School or Minnesota for PhD in Political Science


Recommended Posts

I have been accepted to the Maxwell School Department of Political Science at Syracuse University. However, I am still on the waitlist at Minnesota Political Science. The waitlist process have been so long and I am still waiting for a decision and there are four days until the decision deadline. I was so sure at the beginning that if admitted, I would choose Minnesota because at the PolSci faculty, there is a professor with whose research interests mine totally overlap and I think that I would be a good fit there. Besides, it is a great school (when you get used to the cold weather there).

On the other hand, my another application, Syracuse offered me admission. I will be covered by an external scholarship during the first two years (for 9 months each year). Syracuse also offered me a summer funding guaranteed for 3 years. Also, they seem very excited to have me there.

I have not still received admission from Minnesota but I have a hunch that I will be admitted eventually. In case of a rejection, there is nothing to think about but if admitted, I do not know how to make my decision about which school to choose. My mind and heart were set on Minnesota completely but now I am very confused and thought that you guys might give me useful advice.
