  1. Anyone know what the admit rates are for the mid career programs like MAGP or MIPP? Increasing feeling like these classes will be online in the fall the more I speak to people in all sorts of undergrad/grad programs which really takes away from some of the most important aspects of the programs which are in-person and really hard to replicate online. I also have yet to speak to anyone on here (not sure if that's because it's a self selecting group of already competitive people who like to post on here) that has gotten rejected/waitlisted to the mid-career programs and seeing for the incoming profile an average GPA of 3.22 with one person who I spoke to who was admitted who didn't even take the GRE.
  2. Thanks for your response. I have over 7 years of work experience and was trying moreso to compare MAGP to MIPP. The key is I don't want to stop working while pursuing my degree and hence trying to evaluate the merits of MAGP vs. MIPP where I would have to go on leave or stop working. Also helps too because my employer would also help pay for a small portion of the Master's which is also key considering these programs aren't exactly cheap if you don't have any other form of scholarships.
  3. So I've searched the entirety of this site and have yet to find any details or thoughts about the Masters in Global Policy (MAGP) that Johns Hopkins SAIS offers, does anyone know anything about the reputation of this program? I'm a working professional in DC and due to family commitments would really like to keep my current private sector job and not be a full-time student while finally pursuing the higher level international affairs degree that I've been seeking to for some time. After some time, I’m finally getting around to deciding to pursue the Master’s I’ve wanted to as I wouldn’t mind opening more career options in due time, hence looking at different part time options. I'm eventually looking gradually for a career pivot into more economic policy type roles in DC and so curious if this degree would even help towards that. When comparing MAGP to the Master of International Public Policy (MIPP) which is a one year full time program, I notice the curriculum seems to be less quantitative though in nature, so is this program similar to other executive MPAs (thinking such as Columbia SIPA) that’s more of a rubberstamp of a Master’s degree credential within their org rather than for any sort of career boost externally or at any policy orgs? For what it's worth, even though the other grad programs have had employment results posted in the most recent 2017 SAIS employment outcomes survey, MAGP did not, any thoughts as to why this program would've been excluded?
