hawk Posted December 31, 2009 Share Posted December 31, 2009 (edited) So I just started looking at sociology programs, I am interested in a few others (Political Science, for instance) -- if something else comes to mind when you look at this feel free to let me know. I am interested to know what schools I should be looking at and what relative chances you think I might have here: Majors: Political Science, Philosophy, History GPA: 3.75 GRE: Not taken but will be over 700/700/no idea on writing I have publications forthcoming in Rhetoric and in Literature (2 separate), I've spoken at conferences in various things, edit a political journal and the newspaper which I also write for. Also 2 summers working at a large media conglomerate and 1 summer doing research on a research stipend (this upcoming one). The University I attend is a large research university, letters of recommendation will be absolutely stellar from extremely prestigious faculty but none of them will be in sociology. I think this might hurt me a bit. What I am interested in: Power and its interaction with society, oppression (educational power and oppression, governmental power and oppression), globalization, and genealogies of these things (so that would be comparative and historical?). Programs I am currently looking at are: Duke, UNC, Princeton and Harvard (but its a bit too cold at these ones) I fear that my complete lack of any sociology courses at all might be seen as a negative but I really just don't have any time with the other majors. However, it seems like sociology is the only program which allows me to study what I am interested in... do let me know, and thanks Edited December 31, 2009 by hawk Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
