  1. Hugely indebted to this forum and hope this helps. Anyway here goes: Program Applied To: MPP Schools Applied To: Harvard Kennedy (MPP), WWS (MPA), Yale Jackson (MGA), Duke Sanford (MPP), Lee Kuan Yew (MPP) Schools Admitted To: Harvard Kennedy (MPP), Duke Sanford ($$$) Schools Rejected From: WWS, Jackson, Lee Kuan Yew Undergraduate institution: Engineering institution from India GPA: 6.38/10 with 3 F grades Undergraduate Major: Mechanical Engineering GRE Quantitative Score: 166 GRE Verbal Score: 157 GRE AW Score: 4.0 Years Out of Undergrad (if applicable): 8 Years of Wor
  2. MPP Applicants (or anyone admitted), I just wanted to get some small information. Does it say "Your admission and registration for the fall are contingent upon receipt of all required official admission documents. Please arrange to have official transcripts and any other required documents delivered to our office..." in your offer letter irrespective or whether you submitted your application or not? The reason I'm wondering if everyone has this paragraph is that I am thinking if this turns into a Conditional offer of admission rather than unconditional-- which would be very bad news for a
  3. Deciding Between: Im an international student from India and I now have to decide between HKS and Sanford- both for the MPP. Harvard Kennedy ($0): A curriculum I really like plus the brand name. Duke Sanford ($$): Offered a tuition waiver of $32k per year. That was the reason I applied here and got it. Decision: Can't believe it but I am leaning towards HKS. I feel like being an international student, I need the backing of a big name if in case I don't get a job in America and have to come back to India (or look for another job in Canada, Australia, Africa etc). I don't thi
  4. That is true. I think we just have to make a choice and things hope for the best in July.. Im in a similar boat with HKS and Duke- Duke even gave me some tuition off
  5. Anyone applying for this? After being receiving no aid from HKS, I have to try my best to get some financial aid...Anyone else putting in an application?
  6. Thanks alot for this! Any idea when results are usually out for this? I already have an offer from Duke (2/3 scholarship) and I want to apply for the JJWB too. But I'm guessing if I want to proceed with the JJ, i have to say no to Duke right? And then hope that I get the world bank scholarship in the future. Is that how this works?
  7. We can still apply for the JJWBGSP scholarships right now, right? It says that the deadline for the scholarship is April 15th if I remember correctly. Anyone know the procedure for that?
  8. Haven't heard anything so I'm going to assume that its a rejection and tomorrow I'll be opening the email as just a formality?
  9. Rejected. Dejected. Was my top choice
  10. In with $32,000/year. Man this is the first university I heard from. So happy. Im from India.. still wondering how much I have to take a loan for. Any ideas? Do living expenses really amount to $20k per year?
  11. Could someone call? Is that an option? EDIT: Gave the school a call- Anytime from next week to mid-march Sigh, not as soon as everyone hoped but atleast we get some sort of clarity..
