    FYI, this is the first post in 4 months in this subforum.

    Political sciences admissions questions are currently aggregated on another forum called gradcafe, I suspect due to increasing returns to scale. Ask there and you will get some answers.

    From what I can tell, this is a fairly competitive profile for the top 20 programs.
