Gulielmus Posted March 13, 2014 Share Posted March 13, 2014 Hi, so... I've got acceptances and rejections rolling in. Nothing surprising. I do have a question though for anyone who is attending The New School in Politics. I really would like to go to The New School. My interests are in democratic theory and critical theory, and I want to go on to a PhD. I'd like to know how competitive is the internal admissions process into the PhD from the MA? How many MA students do they accept on average? Anyone gone through it? Anyone been rejected? They've hedged a bit on my questions... if I accept admission to the MA then I can talk about it at orientation, to my advisor, etc. I'm aware of all the other caveats about The New School, the lack of funding, the nature of the program being slightly different from the rest of American Political Science (that's actually one of the draws for me), etc. I'm just curious about the internal MA->PhD admissions process. I don't particularly want to feel like I'm wasting time on the MA... I know "waste" is a strong word, but I don't want to end up tacking an extra two years onto my road to the PhD. Thanks!!
