Hey, thank you so much for your answer!
Just a quick follow-up: I'm an international student who has a keen interest in exploring questions pertaining to inequality and informalization of labour sector, but from an international perspctive.
1)From what I've heard, Harris is very domestic, but that being said, the quant skills are certainly an add-on factor. My concern is that most chicago internships and jobs are very local-focused. While for SIPA, it's much more international and the network is wider in comparison. While I am leaning slightly towards SIPA, my concern is that Harris is costing me 30k lesser in just tuition. If I consider, living costs, I'm assuming it might be even cheaper to SIPA.
2) Plus, my another worry is that given my profile of 1 year of work ex, would it be tough to fit into SIPA (cuz it's a professional school)? Since it's more leadership and management oriented. While Harris is more research oriented. Or would you suggest that flexibility to tweak MPA at SIPA in that direction exists (tailor it to one's need).
I guess the main dilemma comes down to the cost factor.
Any thoughts would be much appreciated! This forum has been super helpful in my admission process tbh.
