  1. Hmm well that's also the date that GW requires a deposit. I kind of figured that I just didn't get it (as I haven't heard anything). Maybe they've already offered it to a few people and are waiting to see if they turn it down.
  2. @mustangsally001 Thanks for the insight--I really appreciate it! You're making my decision harder too, hahah
  3. I would love to hear from people who were able to make it to the open house today!
  4. Thanks for letting us know about your thoughts and impressions!
  5. @mouraq I didn't apply to either of those places but I'm into similar schools...something that I've done that has helped me is to look at courses offered and kind of map out your schedule for your two years. It obviously isn't going to be drastically different between the schools, but if there are a lot of courses offered at UCSD that interest you, then that's something to think about. Personally, it would be really hard for me to turn down a full ride somewhere (especially if you get to live in San Diego!), but you may also want to reach out to recent grads (via LinkedIn or by requesting the
  6. Cool! Well, good luck with your decision! I don't know much about CEU or PP schools in general, but Budapest is a great city. If I were you, I'd reach out to former students to see how they have fared after graduating and if they felt that the program was well-regarded in terms of securing jobs, networking, etc. It would be hard to turn down a full tuition fellowship!
  7. Out of curiosity, why did you choose to apply to public policy schools instead of IR programs that specialize in development (e.g. SAIS, MSFS, etc)?
  8. No problem! Chicago is a great city, too! The food and summer weather make up for the awful, awful winters.
  9. Came across this thread while trying to make a similar decision...out of curiosity, which school did yall choose?
  10. If anyone is going to the admitted students day today and wants to share his or her thoughts...that would be much appreciated!
  11. Hi all! I am considering attending the University of Denver this fall and am wondering about good places to live in the city. I know that a lot of people live close to the university but I'm not sure whether or not that is for me. I'd like to be somewhere not too far from school (or close to the light rail) but where I can also walk to dining, shopping, grocery stores, etc. that's also safe and maybe in a neighborhood with mature trees or parks. I'm not really interested in living in a suburb, either. I will probably have a car but do not want to have to rely on driving everywhere. Any suggest
  12. Has anyone ever asked for more money from the school that offered you the most funding of all? I'd like to ask about additional funding from one school but I don't have any offers that top it in terms of actual dollar amount. I also don't want to come off as ungrateful or disingenuous. On the reverse side of that, what about leveraging an offer from a lower ranked school to land more money at a higher ranked school? I would be happy attending any of the schools I applied to but for me money is one of the major deciding factors.
  13. I did not attend or apply for CIR but I know someone who did and she told me that it definitely is more theoretical than other programs. As far as I know, there are not even any requirements for practical-based skills or anything (again, this is second hand information). As far as job prospects, she had an internship that turned into a job in Chicago but I'm not sure about how those translate to NYC or DC. Again, sorry if it's not very helpful, but I just wanted to let you know that I had secondhand experience with CIR and that from what I can tell, the students and curriculum sound right up y
  14. @Lolothefirecat although I don't know when the timeline is for admitted students to hear back about more potential money...I would ask admissions how long after that April 20 date it will take for them to decide on money allocation!
