  1. Honestly, don't do it. You'll seriously regret it later with the debt and the uncertain prospects of employment. I'm a dreamer, too. I studied ancient Greek Philosophy. Unfunded MA's are not a great idea financially.
  2. It's really hard to offer advice without knowing the schools or the program. Although you've given a lot of details, without names (and other concrete details) it's rather vague. My advice would be better with more information, but here it is: don't feel bad about asking for more money. Be persistent yet polite and offer to give the schools hard evidence of better offers.
  3. SIPA offered me $71k in scholarships, and the tuition+fees are about $113 for the 2 years. So, I'd be on the hook for $42k. SAIS has now offered me a full ride. So, I'd have no debt. But, from what I've researched, I think that SIPA is a better fit overall. What would you do?
  4. an update I'm now in at Oxford but still waiting on the scholarship announcement. SIPA offered me $71k in scholarships, and the tuition+fees are about $113 for the 2 years.

  5. I'm really stuck between SAIS and SIPA. For SAIS, I wouldn't have to take out a single loan for the first year, and the cost of living in Bologna is way cheaper than NY.
  6. I would ask now. I'm in a similar situation; I've been accepted to SIPA with a similarly generous fellowship, but I'm also in at Johns Hopkins with a full ride the first year. I plan on contacting both schools and seeing if either can increase the offer.
  7. I was accepted into SIPA, Tufts, SAIS, SIS, and CIR. ALL of the schools have offered generous funding. SIPA offered me the most by far: over $67k in funding for the 2 years plus an International Fellowship. SAIS offered full funding for the first semester in Bologna. I'll email to ask about 2nd year funding. Tufts gave me over $40k for 2 years, SIS & CIR gave me 1/2 off tuition waiver. Any of these options would require some debt, which is fine. I'm not risk averse. I'm just trying to find the best option. I am interested in terrorism and security studies; I alread
