  1. hi there - I saw your post on a different thread about coming to the US on an F1 visa and being able to stay ever since - would you be able to shed some light on how you went about this? I'm planning on pursuing policy studies in DC (originally from Canada) and I have quite a few contacts there, however, I'm concerned about whether or not I will be able to stay beyond my degree and/or how likely an employer-sponsored visa is...

  2. Exactly! I have had similar experiences. I will say, the program is only a couple years old so I suppose I understand that many people wouldn't know of the program a couple years ago as it is so new. I wonder if it is predicted to gain notoriety over the coming years...
  3. definitely not too old! that being said, I would definitely rank the mid-career programs (like the HKS MC/PA) over the programs with cohorts of only 1-3 years work experience (like Yale). it would likely just be a better and more suitable environment for you and you'd find better contacts at the same career level as you.
  4. Hi folks - thinking of applying to Yale's Jackson School's Masters of Global Affairs program this fall, as the program itself looks pretty interesting and they seem to offer generous funding if you're able to get in. The problem is that I've already been working in Global Affairs/Foreign Policy for about three years and haven't heard much about Jackson and am concerned about its reputation within its field. I am currently living in Canada but would like to stay in the USA and continue working in the peace/security world, but don't want to be at a disadvantage in terms of school name. I am also
  5. Thanks so much for these kinds words - it's honestly so difficult to be confident sometimes! I'm also super grateful for your feedback on DC. My fear is that it's mainly policy analyst jobs for the US Gov (I'm not American), but your words were super helpful. On the note of LSE - I've also heard just some negatives about the 8month programs basically watering down the education, which makes me hesitant to go. Thanks so much for your insight!!
  6. Hi folks, For a Masters in international affairs and/or security - which program do you feel is best? I've been working as a program officer at an international peace organization for the past two years, and have recently finished up a BA in political science with a 3.94 GPA. I speak French, English, and Spanish, so language isn't an issue in terms of the francophone community in Geneva (I did my undergrad in French). I'm looking at applying to these schools in the fall of 2021 or 2022, depending on how the pandemic is, and will be working in my current role until then and as a resea
  7. Hi folks, I am currently finishing up an undergrad in Political Science and Communication, and have been working at a diplomacy and mediation organization for the past two years. Over the next two years, I'm staying on at my current organization, and taking up an additional part time role as a Research Associate at a think tank, researching environmental health in South Asia. I have additional experience and publications on reproductive/sexual health and disability justice, however, most of this does not take an international focus. I am looking for a program that would allow me to look a
  8. Would love to stay updated on your admissions! i have almost the same stats and am looking at applying at almost the same schools. Taking a second year off working as a Research Associate then applying!!
