guest12345678 Posted January 13, 2021 Share Posted January 13, 2021 Hello everyone. I am wondering if you'd be willing to give an honest evaluation of which tier of schools (if any) I should be considered by. M.A. in Political Science 3.9 GPA (3.9+ for Political Science courses) (degree expected for April) B.A in Philosophy minor in History, GPA is...well, not good. It's about 3.3 for final 2 years of study. *both schools are not tier 1 schools* Research experience: (1) interned at a think tank as a researcher, involving some experience with R. (2) Research assistant for graduate programme. Publications: (1) I've been published (as sole author) in a political science journal, with professors from various parts of the U.S./Europe as part of the committee. (2) article in student journal (3) I have about a half dozen opinion pieces published in newspapers, all on subjects of foreign affairs Teaching: four terms experience, excellent reviews LOR: I think they're going to be very strong. They're all from tenured professors. Statement of purpose: I worked really hard on it, but I have no idea how to measure this myself. Misc: peer-reviewer for student journal, presented at conference, a couple awards/scholarships but nothing special. Honestly, if I get one acceptance to any school of any tier, I'll be happy. If not, such is life and I'll move on. I've applied to four schools. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
