Tirapol2526 Posted October 21, 2009 Share Posted October 21, 2009 Hi all, I am working like most of you on my application for PolSci grad school and preparing my writing sample right now. Since I intend to apply for comparative politics, I would like to ask you what you think would be the better approach: At the moment, I want to construct the paper that after the introduction I present a concise survey of the specific literature, then how it relates to a country, present country specific hypotheses and then test it with empirical data and write an analysis/conclusion in which I want to draw a short analogy to other countries. Then in my SoP, I will say that I want to do a similar research later in grad school for other countries as well. Or do you think, it would be better to write a paper in which I compare 2 countries - after I have introduced the problem - according to the comparative method? I am asking because my paper outline would look like the first one but I could connect it to my intended research in my SoP, so do you think it actually matters a lot that I will not use the comparative method with at least 2 countries? Thank you very much for your thoughts and good luck for your applications! Best wishes from Thailand! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
