What do you guys think about chances at Penn, Columbia, Georgetown, UVA, or Wash-U? Also does anyone know any good poly sci schools other than Georgetown, GW, and Penn?

stop posting your weighted its for you, its not the same scale colleges use
jewish male will definately make it fotught for ALL schoools, especially coming from penn. Anyhow I wouldn't put soo many Ec's down, its quality not quantitity. Your Ec's are there to demonstrate your interest and tell what your goal is, not to fill the page. Other than that you have a pretty nice shot playa ;P

Tufts has a wonderful political science department, with amazing teachers and scholars, many of whom have won national awards. Go to the Tufts website and take a look.
