  1. Hi guys, I'm an international student with an economics degree from a top Canadian uni. (But I am not a Canadian). I was admitted to Johns Hopkins SAIS MA in DC, Heinz MSPPM-DA and Cornell CIPA MPA In general, I was struggling with a stronger interest in macro research (SAIS) vs a possibly better employment outcome from a STEM degree (Heinz) I found myself more interested in macroeconomic research + international relations. So SAIS is more closely related in that regard though the curriculum as many overlaps with my undergrad degree and less quantitative focused (Econ waiver ex
  2. Hi guys! Last week I received the link for a video interview with regard to the application for CMU's MSPPM-DA track. Although, it's optional, it's highly recommended for international students. I am an international student and do not even have a good Speaking score in TOEFL (24). I am really worried and nervous as well thinking about whether appearing for this will increase my chances or worsen it. Those who've already given this interview, could you please help me understand how was your experience and whether I should take this (in your opinion)?
  3. Hello, I had applied for CMU MISM 12 months course, whereas I intended to apply for the 16 months course. I understand that this is a grave mistake from my end. The reason I was opting for the 16 months is that my undergrad is not related to programming so the 16 months course would be better for me. Do you think it would be sensible to mail the admissions committee and ask them to consider me for the 16 months course?
  4. I was looking for a post for others applying to Carnegie Mellon and haven't seen one, but since I just submitted my app I figured maybe some other folks have too! I applied to the Data Analytics track-- I've already been accepted to UChicago's MSCAPP, but since I heard CMU offers a lot more funding I think it might actually be my top choice. (I thought the MSCAPP was, but I their funding offer was seriously underwhelming when compared to their high cost of attendance.) Specifically, I'm curious if anyone else completed the video interview thing? I opted not to since I felt like the rest o
  5. Hi everyone, I have a bit of a head scratcher here. I have just been offered two opportunities about attending two amazing masters programs, and would love to have some external input. Below are my offers: Carnegie-Mellon Heinz Masters of Science in Public Policy and Management (MSPPM): 2 year program with 50% tuition scholarship (about $50,000 total) Syracuse Maxwell Masters in Public Administration (MPA): 1 year program with $38,000 merit scholarship, graduate assistantship where I will be compensated $15,800, and a $5,000 transition stipend for each each summer I attend (abou
  6. Hello all, I got accepted to the following programs and would highly appreciate your help on deciding. I studied Political Science with the focus on Public Policy and worked around Sustainable Development in the land-use sector in an international organization for 3 years. Am considering PhD also, but this might change depending on the masters program I choose. Below are key traits of each school from my point of view: 1. Master of Environmental Management (MEM), Forestry and Environmental Studies, Yale Pro: Strongest school in Env. management
  7. Does anyone know how likely it is to get a GA position at the Heinz College without qualifying for Federal Work Study? Thanks!
  8. Hi, I am Umair from Pakistan. I have a funded offer (Fulbright) for a Phd in Public Policy for Fall 2017. In my submission plan (where Fulbright commission applied for me), unis included Arizona State University, Uni of Texas at Dallas, Uni of Washington- Evans, Syracuse Maxwell, and CMU Heinz. My background is a bit on the low side, an undergrad from a top ranked uni here in Pakistan (but obviously unknown there in the US) with a CGPA of 2.83, where I studied Business Management/ Information Systems. I did a postgrad from Institute of Development Studies at University of Sussex UK, Hi
  9. I was accepted to both the Duke MPP and Heinz MSHCPM programs and am planning on going into the field of healthcare. What are everyone's opinions regarding one, or both, of the programs. What are some strengths/weaknesses of both (I am very good with numbers and do want a quantitatively heavy grad education)? What is the job placement like for either and how much pull does Duke Sanford have in the field of healthcare? Any thoughts?
  10. I've been looking at back posts on the relative quantitative rigorousness of programs, and I've noticed that virtually every program is described by some as "quant heavy", etc. For me, the ability to push myself quantitative and learn advanced skills of statistics, econometrics, microeconomics, and program evaluation is one of my most important criteria for evaluating programs. And I feel a little let down by this forum, which is generally quite informative and helpful. For instance, GSPP is often highly regarded as quant heavy. However, their math camp spends half of the time on pre-calcul

  12. 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:
  13. I am deciding between CMU Heinz MSPPM and University of Chicago's Harris School MPP. Harris: #4 by US N&W Report in both social policy, policy analysis; Heinz: #7 in policy analysis Switched places from the last USNWR rankings for policy analysis, but both clearly top-tiered and quantitatively strong. For financial aid, Harris offered 10k/year and Heinz 24k/year. Which one should I choose? Does anyone know much about the differences between these two programs? Thanks!
