  1. I really like the program and the students seem to be super smart and down to earth. However, I work and want to keep working in affordable housing and the other schools have great programs. I'm deciding between a joint MPP/urban planning degree at HKS/GSD (which would give me solid policy skills and stronger technical skills because of the urban planning degree) and a MPA at Woodrow Wilson. I want to work in DC after finishing my degree, so I think those two schools would be great to get connected. Also, WWS' financial package is amazing.
  2. Are you going to admit day at the Woo, too? And I know, I'll probably be going to the East coast. I looked up the weather in both Boston and Princeton, and it's below 32 degrees. I'm from San Diego, so I'm definitely going to miss the sun.
  3. I'm going up for admit day in April, but it's currently ranked 3rd in my mind. So, unless something magical happens, I won't be going and hopefully my fellowship will get offered to someone else.
  4. You should talk to current/alumni from Goldman and get their opinion. I know a few... PM me and I'll connect you. Also, from what I understand, USC does a phenomenal job at connecting their students with jobs through their alumni network. If you're thinking of going back to LA, getting a degree from USC debt free would be my first choice.
  5. I received my letter today (Monday 3/13) in the mail.
  6. Awesome. I'll look into it tonight and try to figure out logistics. I'll post on here and I'll pm you with details. If it's feasible and easier, then I'll post on here and see if anyone else is interested.
  7. For those who got into both HKS and WWS ( @Palolem and @Nasty Woman) - Are you going to both admit weekends? If so, how are you planning on going from HKS to WWS? I'm coming from the west coast and am not sure if I should fly or rent a car and drive down. Thoughts?
  8. I got an email for the Sheila C. Johnson Fellowship.
  9. MPA as well. Thanks!
  10. Portal has not changed for me. Just received an email from Melissa Lyles saying I was accepted. Another email from the Dean and financial aid package will be sent out in the next few days...There's also a link to a google forum where you can connect with other admits. It seems a bit crazy, but given the size of the program, they may be sending them out one by one..
  11. In!
  12. Accepted!
  13. No email yet. CHECK THE PORTAL!!!!!!!
  14. Yeah. It's back up on my page. it's happening...
  15. I hope we get these decisions soon. I spoke to a friend and recent HKS alum, and he said that we would be hearing back next week. Hope he's wrong.
