Hi, I am a graduate of an MSc. in Economics from 3 French Universities (Sciences Po Paris, Ecole Polytechnique and ENASE). I don't know how to frame my request without giving you my life history, but it should hopefully suffice to say that I am interested in political methods, more specifically (behavioural) game theory applied to comparative politics (voting, elections, political networks). I am looking to apply to some American universities as well for a PhD. in Political Science and especially those with a strong methods focus. I have a list but I would appreciate any feedback on my choice of schools and my chances of getting in:

  • Princeton (Political Economy)
  • Rochester (Political Economy)
  • University of Michigan
  • Northwestern
  • UC Davis
  • Florida State
  • NYU


This is not my final list of schools, I am still working on it. I would love to have some feedback and perhaps some guidance regarding my chances. I don't know if there is a set template that I can use to demonstrate my profile, but please let me know and I'll post that as well.

Thanks again.
