I'm eyeing top PoliSci PhD programs in CP, esp. those with research projects in social media and politics: Princeton, Stanford, UChicago, NYU, UMich, MIT. I realize that my GRE Q score is on the lower side but my grades in quant classes can make up for that (?). I'm also already doing research in my field with a Princeton-based team so hopefully that'd improve my chances for Princeton. Please let me know your suggestions/comments/advice!
