  1. Currently admitted/ prospective or alumni of Evans, what has been your impression of Evans for MPA degree? The corses, career opportunities? I am highly interested in policy making/analysis and I feel like Seattle is not an ideal place for that. So who reputed and prestigious is Evans name, would it help me in my job hunt? Please let me know about your impression and experiences in Evans. I have to decided between GPS, Harris (15k fuding ) and Evans and it is increasingly getting stressful! Thank you
  2. I have been following the ranking as well as ranking and I feel like the department in UCSD is not as well known as Evans. Evans seems not to be as reputed even though they have good faculty members and I wonder why. Also I dont know if I am interested in east asian and latin american focus. lets see
  3. What are your thoughts on the programs reputation, class cohort and alumni relationship between GPS (UC San Deigo) and Evans ( Univ of Washington) for MPP/MPA? Hoping to enter in non- proft/ thinktank
  4. Hey, So based on your impressions, have you confirmed your decision to go to harris?
  5. Noted. I negotiated with Evans and they gave me a better deal since I wanted to be in Seattle than in San Deigo. At this point, I donot even see the point in negotiating with Harris so looks like my decision is made But thank you so much for everyone's support and thoughts!
  6. How did you get a chance to speak to current students? through LindkedIn ir admission blogs? What in particular about their curriculum are you most interested in?
  7. Hello, Is anyone interested in non profit/thinktank are considering Evans? What are your thoughts on Evans? What made you decide to attend or not to attend Evans? I tried reaching out to Alumnis on Linkedin but I have not heard back :(. How is their alumni network? I think it is very regional specific but I liked Seattle and Evans has given me solid funding. Any alumnis, or prospectinve students what are your thoughts about it?

  9. Lol why though? UCSD's program is relatively new so I am little hesitant about it.
  10. Good Luck! I hope you hear good news soon
  11. Thank you for your insights! And I Completely agree with you regarding the debt thing!
  12. Hello, I think you are an excellent candidate! Especially considering your work experience. My GRE was identical to yours and I worked on a research for 2 years as well for a professor I think what worked for me was that I worked really really hard on my SOP and my letter of recommendation were written by my economics professor and research advisor. Obviously I donot know what they wrote, but I am fairly confident that it was positive. So if i were you i would make sure that the essays are top notch ( i think there were 3?) and letter of recommendation is written by someone who knows you well Do you know when you will hear? Also, I had applied to MPP so that may be different?
  13. Hello 3dender, Thank you so much for your reply! I hate being in the position of making decisions but you make excellent points. I need to chill! It really put me in ease to think that in Evans I would still find opportunities that is available in Harris. Its just that I dont think Evans is as well known as Harris, even in gradforum discussion I dont hear much about Evans which made me very skeptical of it even though Evans has excellent ranking. It is true that each degree is what you make of it! I plan on going to admission day for Chicago. Cant make it Evans since it s on the same day.Lets see how I feel after that. I will make note of the coffee thing though Thank you!!!!
  14. I got into MPP. I want to concentrate on developing quant skills to work in think tank so i may not need the intensity level of a PHD level but would like to develop marketable skills as well. I am an international student, struggled almost a year to look for research assistant position and I figured more intense classes and networking options might help. Besides I do like studying. I agree with your point regarding economics. That was my undergraduate major and I love it@ !But most of the schools that I looked into had economics for PHD which I dont feel ready for. So Lets see how it works out
