Acceptance into selective PhD Prog for International Students



Hi all,

I'm applying for PhD in political science this fall and am aiming for top 20 programs in the U.S.

I just graduated from an Asian institution which is top 3 in my country.

I was just wondering if another student from the same home institution getting accepted into the same program this year (2015-2016 cycle) would affect the chance of my acceptance for 16-17 cycle since most programs prefer diversity. Not sure if I'm making sense here. It's just that I feel that programs are less likely to accept applicants from the same institution especially in the case of international students.

If your profile fits what they're after, you'll be accepted. I've seen a few students in English ph.d programs with the same foreign university listed as a credential.It didn't seem to stop them. (And neither of these places were Cambridge or Oxford)
