  1. @snowbound Undergrad is in environmental and anthropological studies. Recent work experience has been focused on energy (I hope to work on sustainability issues), but it's been pretty good for giving me professional skills and making me more confident......So I'm also facing the question of finding an entry-level job in the field I'm interested and working towards a part-time masters degree through Johns Hopkins... They could have a similar outcome at the end of the day, so it's a tough choice. I think part of not feeling like I "fit" had to do with learning about a concentration that I'm
  2. Help! The decision is right around the corner, and I need to start mentally preparing for this (huge) life change/decision. For anyone who has considered, attended, or decided - where do I pursue my MEM, Duke or Yale? I visited Duke, and I could tell it was a great program. The administration is clearly willing to help students out financially, supportive with research and work opportunities, and they consistently tout their alumni network as one of the best. Many people seem to say Duke really emphasizes building concrete technical skills, and that it might be easier to find a job u
  3. @aspiring_env This is a really interesting and helpful analysis! I have only visited Duke so far, and will be seeing Yale this week. I was definitely surprised and impressed with Duke's efforts during the admitted students weekend, like you said, NSOE definitely seems to be pulling out all the stops when it comes to spending on their students. *But* Yale has always been a bit of my dream school, so I'm having a very tough time trying to determine what school I will choose, and we obviously don't have a lot of time to decide. Can you explain more about the at FES free-wheeling approach you
  4. @hotmack - I think it depends on what are your personal preferences (area of study, location, campus feel, etc) and what the price difference will be for you. And @ everyone here - I have a similar dilemma/question to the others in this thread. I'm deciding between Duke NSOE, Yale F&ES, and Columbia's SIPA MPA (NOT the ESP, but just their regular MPA in Energy and Environment). I have only visited Duke's admitted students weekend, so I know it's hard to make any real determinations yet. Duke certainly seems to be pouring in tons of resources into their efforts towards envir
  5. Hi all, Congrats on all those accepted into the Yale and Duke Enviro (and all other) programs!! And very best of luck to everyone starting classes soon. This might be a bit intrusive in the thread - but I'm very interested in pursuing my masters in environmental sciences, and Yale/Duke are pretty much my dream schools. I'm considering a couple others (ex: U Chicago, Berkeley, Johns Hopkins) as well, and I'm struggling with the "do I retake my GRE?" question, how will my resume compare to others, etc, etc. Of course you can never really know how the admissions office will weigh t
  6. Hi sdeaune, First time poster - and I actually have the same question as you do. I'm interested in the top schools in the Environmental Sciences field, and I'm not sure whether to retake the GRE or not. My V and Q scores are a touch below yours, which makes me think that if you're thinking about it, then maybe I should retake them I would feel more confident if I had the scores that you did, so maybe you're ok! I can't say for certain, since I'm interested in a different field than you are. Maybe that helps....
