  1. Hertie School of Governance 2018

    Yep, looks like they're closed now. I'm obviously happy about the "Accepted" in the portal, but still a tiny bit paranoid that it was a fluke or something without the official confirmation. Hopefully Monday we'll get some more info. Congrats/good luck to everyone!

    My portal also says "Accepted"! No email yet.
  3. LSE 2018

    Hello! Just curious if anyone has applied to LSE for next year? I applied for the MSc in Applied Social Data Science (1st choice) and MSc in Public Policy and Administration programs late October. The website says we should expect about eight weeks to hear back, but I wonder if it might take longer given the holidays. I'd be interested to know anyone else's experience!

    Thanks for the update. Good luck everyone!

    Seriously! I'm located in California so assume I'll get notified while I'm sleeping...every morning is a bit stressful, haha! Hopefully this week is the week.

    I visited Hertie in September, and was really impressed with the availability of student support and services. I am confident that this is a program that will not only provide a quality education, but also plenty of opportunities for career development and employability at the end of the program. I'm also interested in the professional year and internship aspect. As someone from the U.S., the price is very competitive compared to equivalent schools here. Berlin is awesome, and my fiance is German, so moving there would work really well for us. I also applied to the Applied Social Data Science and MPP programs at LSE. If I were to get into both programs, I'd probably have to make my decision based on the funding available. The LSE program looks perfect for me as I'm very interested in the policy analysis aspect - so it would be a hard choice. That being said, I waver between being totally confident that I'll be able to secure a place in either or both and moments of crushing doubt. I would be super happy about either one! Hopefully we'll hear back soon.

    Yeah, I emailed them a few weeks ago and they confirmed that the first round of decisions would be out late November/early December. The wait continues!
  8. Hey all! I applied for the MPP program on October 1st and am (im)patiently awaiting an answer from Hertie, as this is by far my top choice. I know it's really early in the season, but has anyone else applied yet? So curious when we'll start getting responses!
