  1. @Mppirgradschool and @GradSchoolGrad firstly, thanks so much for taking the time to give such thorough input, it's really helpful! This is definitely a good dilemma to be in, however, the decision has become a lot more difficult to make due to the fact that I couldn't visit both programs in person and make face-to-face connections with other students/faculty. I have until May 8 (!!!) to make my decision, so I'm trying to reach out to as many people as possible or insight. To provide some more background about myself, I grew up moving around a lot between NYC and the Middle East and have
  2. Hi everyone! My decision process has kind of been turned on its head, so I wanted some outside perspective. Just last week, I committed to Johns Hopkins SAIS (MA), where I received a really generous scholarship offer of $80k for the 2 years. However, today Columbia SIPA (MIA) matched the offer and slightly more, so now I am seriously considering it. Within the IR framework, I’ll be concentrating in security/conflict resolution with a further focus on the Middle East. I want to use grad school as a way to open myself up to career opportunities, but want to focus on the diplomatic tra

  5. Thanks for your response! that makes sense - regarding the Econ/quant coursework, it looks like I will have to suck it up regardless and I'm going to be speaking to someone from SAIS this week about ways I can spread out the courses in a way thats less burdensome. I guess the main appeal of Fletcher is the curriculum and the specific faculty that stand out based on my area focus, but at the end of the day, not sure it would overcome the location
  6. Hi everyone! I was recently admitted to Johns Hopkins SAIS (MA) and The Fletcher School (MALD), and while after countless hours of comparing I’ve gained a pretty good understanding of each program, I still feel very stuck on which to choose. Within the IR framework, I’ll be concentrating in security/conflict resolution with a further focus on the Middle East. I want to use grad school as a way to open myself up to career opportunities, but want to focus on the diplomatic track, research for think tanks/UN, or even the possibility of journalism which has always been a passion.
