Dear all, Chris Blattman writes that his experience in admission committees at Columbia suggests that work (especially research) experiece strengthen PhD application, especially in applied fields (cf. Frequently asked questions on PhD applications - Chris Blattman). Other than this advice, I have found little on this point on the internet, except that graduate profiles show that most graduates have such experience prior to their PhD in Political Science and Political Economy. Any thoughts/insights as to how important work experience might be? Many thanks in advance!
