Did anybody apply for the MPA/ID at KSG? I applied with quant GRE of 710, Master's training in applied econometrics from the U.S. 3years of working experience with the ministry of agriculture in an african country,Internship with the Jeff Sach's team at the earth institute, Columbia.
I have taken grad level classes like:
Intro to econometrics,
applied econometric analysis,
advanced applied econometrics,
intro to mathematical statistics,
mathematics for economists,
economic policy for developing countries.
I have a second class upper bachelor's degree in agricultural economics from an african university. I have SIPA admission but I deferred it cus I wanted to try the MPA/ID.
Do I stand a chance or forget about it? tell me
I'm sure you'll be just fine. The MPA/ID program class seems to comprise of a good number of students from developing countries that intend to do work to help their home countries, whether directly via their respective governments of via international organizations, and you also seem to have the necessary quantitative experience. The only concern I would have is whether you demonstrated to the admissions committee that you even need the degree, given that you already have a master's degree in economics.
You can never guarantee these things, but I'm sure you stand a good chance.
