  1. Congrats!!! I also got accepted to a joint program. I guess the results of joint programs are released earlier than MALD. I found a Facebook group for the 2021 incoming class at Fletcher, not sure if the admin is active, but you could give it a try.
  2. Majorly because HKS and Jackson are a tier higher than Maxwell, and I felt it would open more doors than Maxwell. The question is really about whether you could afford 50k debts and how long it would take for you to repay those debts. All of those factors are personal so I would encourage you to consider your own situation.
  3. I would take HKS or Yale over Maxwell even if I have to pay $50k out of pocket. I know someone might disagree with me but I think it's worth it. Wish you all the best!
  4. I applied to a joint program offered by Fletcher, and got the acceptance yesterday!! Y'all should hear back soon. Wish you all the best!
  5. Thanks for starting this post. So how "optional" is the video interview? It said it's optional but highly recommended, I wonder if not doing it would ruined my chance.
  6. Thank you for the comments! I wonder if you have any suggestions on less competitive/selective MPP programs? There are many discussions around the top programs, but those are super reach for my stats, and I am concerned about getting into any of them. I have some of the "cash grab players" programs on my list, because I assumed those are less competitive and could be a target or safety school for me.
  7. Thank you for your recommendations; I'd like to elaborate a bit more on why I am applying to some of the programs, and hoping to get more insight. To be honest, with my stats, I'd consider all the schools "super reach". So it's challenging to understand which one is less reach and target for me. My top schools are Chicago Harris MPP, MIT TPP, CMU EPP, GA-Tech MS Cybersecurity (Policy), but all of them are super reach even for applicants with stellar stats. SAIS, Fletcher, and Brown: I'm applying to Johns Hopkins SAIS's European Public Policy program to focus on GD
  8. I'm interested in Technology Policy (privacy, data regulation, cybersecurity.) I know I'm likely an unusual candidate, and tbh, I felt embarrassed even to dream of getting into any of the schools. Still, I hope for a realistic assessment of my chances at these programs or any suggestion on boosting my profile and other programs that I should consider. Thanks Applying to: GWU Trachtenberg MPP, GA-Tech MS Cybersecurity (Policy), UT-Austin LBJ MGPP, Brown MPA, JHU SAIS MEPP, Tufts Fletcher MALD, MIT TPP, CMU EPP, CMU MSISPM, Georgetown McCourt MPP, Chicago Harris MPP, Duke Sanford MPP,
  9. thank you for taking the time to do this! Similar to you, although I have 4 years of experience and strong LORs, I have a sub 2.X GPA and it scares me. I wonder what do you see as your strength? How did you structure your SOP to demonstrate what you're capable of doing and your potential despite your low GPA?

  11. I graduated in 2016 with a Cognitive Science B.S. (GPA:2.2) from a public research university after working in a research lab during my four years as an undergrad. I was lucky to receive a job offer from one of the top tech companies and have been doing research in the industry since then. I was also fortunate to work with many talented peers that often hold advanced degrees. After working in the industry for 3 years, I am planning to go back to school to advance my skill because I felt I have a more definite goal of the topics I want to study. Instead of psychology/cogsci, I am looking into a
  12. After my terrible performance in undergrad, I am really concerned about getting into grad school. I graduated in 2016 with a Cognitive Science B.S.
