Theory with capital T Posted July 11, 2012 Share Posted July 11, 2012 Hello guys, I hope to apply to grad schools directly from undergrad. I'm double-majoring in philosophy and politics from a decent public university. Grade around 3.80. GRE: verbal 670, Math 730, AW 5. I've a good honors thesis on contemporary continental political theory (incorporating Strauss and Arendt). I've not published anything yet. Have taken 10+ courses on political theory, some of which are graduate level courses. And, unfortunately, I can't afford to do an MA. My LORs are supposed to be strong. I'm specifically looking forward to universities which give emphasis to continental political theory (e.g. University of Chicago, Northwestern, John Hopkins, Berkeley, WashU etc). I'd be more than grateful if you could let me know whether I've a fair shot at above-mentioned institutions. If not, could you please suggest me what should I do to become a stronger candidate?
