  1. bahaha yeah i've certainly put myself in a tight spot. I only got 12K a semester from CMU and I don't think I can transfer into the DC track so I think I'll have to take that out of the running. between a full ride at UT Austin and a full ride at Berkeley (assuming I get a GSI/GSR position), I think I'm stuck debating whether or not I want to work in Texas or San Fran. would it be safe to say that GSPP has better national recognition if I do end up trying to go to DC?
  2. Goldman, Heinz. LBJ, or UCLA? I understand Goldman emphasizes state politics/local gov in CA, LBJ has great faculty and good connections in TX, and CMU has good recognition on the East Coast. Applying to grad schools I was focused more on domestic policies but recently I've been considering taking an international approach (thus the dearth of IR focused MPP programs I applied to ) So if I had to choose from what I have, which program would give me the best education/placement/int'l exposure? Mainly to China/East Asia. Thanks for the help guys. Decision dates are coming soon D:
  3. Yeah I'm sticking mainly to deciding between CMU and Cal. Which opportunities does CMU have that Cal doesnt? If Cal gives me access to more than should I stick to that?
  4. Hi everyone, new here. I've been lurking for awhile and I really like the community here. I could really use some help here and maybe this discussion could help other people in the same situation as me. Applied to MPP programs. Goldman with 10K (also opportunity for GSI/GSR) Heinz with 12K UCLA with full UT Austin with full Initially I was leaning to Berkeley because I'm interested in drug policy and domestic issues related to it. However, as of late I've been rethinking whether or not I want to pigeonhole myself unnecessarily. International issues (mainly Sino-US stuff) has piqued my interest as of late and I want to keep my options open as I explore an MPP program. Goldman obviously has a great alumni network in the Bay Area, with some placement in DC and internationally. I'm regretting not applying to Johns Hopkins or SIPA (international specialties) but I have to make do with what I have now. Given my goals, which program do you think would afford me the most opportunities to explore these interests? Goldman, Heinz, and UCLA all have prominent figures in the drug policy field but Heinz seems to have a more well-rounded job placement and program. Thoughts?
