  1. Hello all, My current employer is pushing to have me stay with them in some capacity while I complete my PhD. Right now, I am leaning towards the Pardee RAND PhD in Policy Analysis, where I have been accepted. This program is truly a great fit for me with a pretty good financial package - however, the financial package includes needing to work as a researcher a select number of hours at the RAND think-tank in order to earn that package.

Harvard has a phD/jd option, as do a few other schools, like U of Maryland. However, it does seem to boost the time for completion up to 6+ years.
  6. V: 168 Q: 164 W: 6.0 I was hoping to be competitive for the Harvard Kennedy School Public Policy PhD, but I would be applying for the economics methodology within that program. Saw somewhere online that avg. Quant scores for the HKS PP PhD are 162, but not sure how much truth there is to that, especially if I would be applying on the basis of doing more quant heavy stuff within the program. I had scored around 166 consistently on the practice exams for Quant, and was really hoping for that score, or better. Disappointed with 164, but really, really do not want to pay the $$$ and
