  1. I picked Cambridge and LSE because Oxford appears to strictly want a reference from your current school. At the time I applied, I only had been in my current program for a month or so, so it was unrealistic for me to get a meaningful reference from any of my professors. However, Oxford appears to be a perfectly good option from my perspective. Good luck with your decision!

  3. Should've been clearer in my last post - I was also admitted to the MPP. However, I agree with river_xo_song, given tthat admitted students day is next week, I'm sure there will be some more movement on Price admissions.
  4. Was admitted yesterday with a 50% scholarship!
  5. Ah that makes sense - I would agree that HKS, Duke, and Michigan are arguably better choices then. My angle on policy even now is very interdisciplinary so it's important for me to go to a school where I can take courses and collaborate with others from different departments (one of the reasons I applied to LBJ, HKS and Price). I'll certainly be applying to more schools after this - very grateful for your help!
  6. Very insightful - from the perspective of an applicant it can be difficult to tell a school's strength in a particular area, so I will look very seriously at all of these schools. I'd say I'm a fairly strong researcher - why do you say Princeton and Syracuse subject to that condition?
  7. I am also interested in other social policy areas (with health currently being the most prominent) so there is still a strong benefit for me to enrol in an MPP so I can test different areas. However, I will look at those MPH programs as it sounds like they may be compatible for my interests too, considering I could develop quant skills there as well. You've been so helpful - thank you very much for your thoughtful responses and guidance!
  8. I should elaborate on my goals a bit: My main policy interest is in health. I am currently writing my dissertation on behavioural interventions and preventable diseases and hope to continue this work in my future education and career. My strength is in behavioural research but not in proposing and assessing policy outcomes. I wish to develop my quantitative policy skills (particularly in policy economics, program evaluation, etc.) through an MPP program. I also hope to learn more about health policy in the US through both course work and potentially conducting research with faculty members. Th
