  1. No extra funding for me either ☹️
  2. Same here! I got an extra bump of $3k for the fall semester (presumably renewable the following fall).
  3. There’s a group of us on the SIPA admitted students page who connected and are discussing this dilemma! The biggest concern I have is if classes will be virtual / vaccination rates will be high in France in the fall.
  4. Thanks all! Disappointing, but understandable. I’ll need to do some number-crunching to decide which program makes the most sense for someone interested in domestic health policy given my funding options.
  5. Have any students who were admitted without funding been able to negotiate aid from HKS? I have funding from SIPA (33%), UChicago (50%), Wagner (50%) and McCourt (50%) for leverage.
  6. Accepted here as well - thrilled!! But no news on funding - does anyone know how that news is shared?
  7. Thank you! Yes, I graduated in 2017 and so I had a 4 year gap. I’ve been interested in an MPP/MPA since I was a senior, and my professors strongly recommended that I take a few years off prior to applying to grad school to gain relevant experiences. This was not only to improve my chances / save money for entering grad school, but also to make me a stronger candidate for higher level jobs after graduation since I will be competing among my peers. My work experience also factored heavily into my SOP, so I believe it was beneficial for admissions.
  8. Of course - American student with 168V/161Q 5.0AW, 3.7 GPA from top 5 public university, double majored in undergrad. Work experience is 2 years Peace Corps and 2 years social impact consulting. Best of luck! From what I’ve heard on this forum, next year should be a more promising cycle for acceptances and scholarships.
  9. Hi! I’m in the same boat - choosing between this program, UChicago MPP and Georgetown MPP. I was also accepted to SIPA’s two year program and NYU and am waiting to hear back from HKS.
  10. Congrats on your admission to SIPA! But I imagine it must be bittersweet. I received an acceptance today for the dual degree, but there was no information about financial aid. Hoping to negotiate carrying over my financial aid offer from the two year degree.
  11. I was an Early Admit back in December and received an email “Your Decision is Ready to be Viewed Online”. I checked my portal and had a new letter added offering $20k/yr for a total of $40k/yr for the degree! I’m very excited because the process for scholarship consideration was so confusing for early admits, given that some were offered funding back in December. I also applied for the International Fellows Program but didn’t hear back anything specific from them. Still waiting to hear back from my top choice, the dual degree with Sciences Po!
  12. I also applied for the dual degree program! I was accepted to SIPA in December with the Early Action group, but am eagerly waiting for a response from Sciences Po for the dual degree program.
  13. Also curious! I was admitted to Harris, Wagner, and McCourt so far and received the same financial aid offer (50% tuition) from all three, so I don’t have a higher offer to leverage. I do have a career update (new project relevant to my policy interests) I am planning on sharing. Still waiting on SIPA’s financial aid offer and HKS.
  14. No, I emailed them in January to ask if early action candidates would be under consideration for funding in March. Good luck to you too!
