  1. Thank you so much for the response! Hopefully I'll be able to attend the admitted students campus day. Glad to hear the school has what I'm looking for. Fortunately I'll be able to attend admitted student's day.
  2. None of these programs are going to prepare you for a PhD program. I'm a current Fletcher MALD student and those here who do go onto pursue a PhD often stay at Fletcher - it seems as though the PhD program here is rather endogenized. Fletcher is also extremely career/"policy world" oriented. You would be better off either holding off and applying for PhDs next cycle or attending a one year MA program at a school like LSE or the University of Chicago.

  5. Hey All, I was recently admitted and started attending a top-tier IR program, but have quickly come to realize that this program in particular is not for me. I've also discovered recently that I may want to explore a program that is either less professional in nature and concentrates more on preparing students for academia or hones in on more technical skills - but that's besides the point. My current program is two years, so I was wondering if it is possible to attempt to transfer into another program? Or does that option not really exist at the MA level. I'm currently still in my f
