Poli92 Posted August 20, 2014 Share Posted August 20, 2014 As a matter of curiosity, I wonder how (or if) the experience of those in grad school and beyond has actually been shaped by their undergraduate experience. As many of us are gearing up to apply this fall we are told about things we should, or at this point should have, done in order to prepare ourself for getting accepted and hopefully succeeding in a graduate program... but during and even post-admissions, how do all the little things that supposedly make or break an ideal political science applicant really impact the grad student experience? How was your experience or that of your peers affected if you: Came from R1 versus LAC or anywhere in between Had loads of math experience Came from fields other than poli sci Didn't do so hot in UG Came straight from UG Wrote significantly prior to grad school Participated in university or departmental honors programs etc. Any thoughts from the veterans in our midst would be awesome!
