    Escaping the Emails

    Now that I've accepted one of my offers, how the heck do I stop the incessant barrage of graduate program emails that pour into my inbox every day? HELP!

    2019-2020 Boren Applicants

    Hey guys TLDR: I'm interested in switching the school I applied for with my fellowship halfway through my program. Do you know what the protocol for this is? More specifics, I applied for the Korean Fellowship for two class sessions in Seoul (25 Weeks, Sept-May), but I am interested in coming back to do a domestic program at Univ of Hawaii for the second session. Any idea if this is possible?

    Georgetown MASIA 2019

    Best of luck to you!! Either program would be an excellent choice. And it is all alright - I made the best choice for me across the board

    Georgetown MASIA 2019

    then again, I wasn't fully funded from as prestigious of a university, so you may have more leverage than I did

    Georgetown MASIA 2019

    i asked if there was any wiggle room in the merit based funding for incoming students, as I had received full funding from two other programs. they informed me I could wait till April to see if anything became available, but nothing was available at that point.

    Georgetown MASIA 2019

    (Sorry I just saw this!) I have a few reasons, Primarily, my SO will be in Hawaii and the location works well for the two of us. Secondly, UH is in a prime geographic position for me - what with Pacific Strategy being my focus of study. I'm excited about the post grad employment opportunities there and building up a network near PACOM. Money was also a big player, I got nothing from Gtown, even after attempted negotiation. I think another big thing was that I'm comfortable in the Big Fish, Small Pond dynamic. My undergrad was like this, and I thrived. Let me know if you have any other questions!

    Georgetown MASIA 2019

    I am posting to let those above know that I have withdrawn my acceptance to Georgetown, I'll be attending Univ of Hawaii at Manoa in the fall. Good luck to any and all in your decisions! I am happy to discuss my decision process if you're struggling.

    University of Hawaii Anthro vs Cornell Asian Studies

    I am in a similar boat, but trying to decide between UHM and Georgetown... I also didnt expect to get accepted to the latter. I focus on Korea and Indo-Pacific Strategy... Moving to Hawaii would put me in a great place for private contracting... but DC is the hub of all. Let me know if you want to chat about it.

    Decision time: share your dilemma

    Hiya everyone! I've got some conundrums. First and foremost, has anyone applied to a Boren Fellowship prior to beginning their graduate studies? I am worried about the notification deadline and graduate school commitment deadlines. Coming From: Washington, D.C.; Finishing up undergrad at George Mason University and an internship at Brookings. I have intermediate Korean skills and hope to focus on US-Korea relations as well as the Korean peninsula conflict in my graduate studies. Deciding Between: Georgetown SFS/MASIA: No $, applying for FLAS to cover ~25% of tuition. UH Asian Studies: Waiting for aid, exp. 30% out of state tuition covered. Applied late (see below), so my chances for full funding would be increased if I established in-state residency beforehand. UNC-Chapel Hill Global Studies: Full tuition/Teaching Assistantship package Other Factors: My long term S/O just got stationed at a military base in Hawaii, hence my application to the UH Masters. I've also applied to a Boren Fellowship which I am still waiting to hear back from. I am worried about money vs. opportunity cost... even though I've spent a significant amount of time in DC already and am ready to leave. To pass up the Georgetown opportunity is almost too much... but the opportunities of strategic analytical work and Korean studies resources in Hawaii are nothing to be scoffed at. How I'm Leaning: My heart's in Hawaii, but I'm not sure if the funding will be enough to justify it. I also need to hear back from Boren before I can make any final decisions... but we aren't expected to hear back until mid-april.

    Hey Everyone - I was wondering if anyone was balancing boren and grad school commitment deadlines like me? I applied to the fellowship as a graduating senior from undergrad, and need to be affiliated with a grad school. thanks!
