Question about matching research interests with faculty

because my interests match with faculty in a broad sense... just not specifically what i am doing

You know, it kinda depends. I don't do exactly what my advisor (or anyone else in my dept) does but we are interested in similar things, use the same methodology and theoretical framework, and he really "gets" my topic, even if he's not really that knowledgeable about my region of study or the specifics of my project.

In all honesty, by the time you get to your dissertation, you are unlikely to be doing exactly what you think you want to do right now. I would apply based on methodology matches - i.e. if you want to use quant, apply to quant schools. That should be good enough.
