Hi, I couldn't find a thread for the Humphrey School of Public Affairs. I received a mail to check my application status sometime in the last week, and was pleased to see a bold "accepted"! No news on the funding yet, though. Anyone with news?
Hey Everyone! So I haven't seen a topic for the Humphrey School at the University of Minnesota and I'm curious to learn more about this program. I applied to their MPP program for this upcoming fall and was recently offered about 90% funding but I don't know much about the program or what current students think about the program. How well known is the program and where do alumni end up working. I've visited Minneapolis before and loved the city, just don't know a lot about UMinnesota. I wasn't expecting to get this much funding from them but now I am really considering this program after the amount of funding I was offered. Right now I am trying to decide between Harris, Ford and now Humphrey. I'm not about to go their their visit days, which is unfortunate. Has anyone on here visited the school?
It is almost decision time, and after reading everything related to all the schools I am considering I am still so confused and need help. I have narrowed my options to three schools, taking out Maryland and Evans because I am not going to get any money from them. That leaves Humphrey-MPP, La Follette-MPA, and American SPA-MPP. Background: I am from MN and plan to focus on social policy. Minneapolis is the best city for me- point for Humphrey, but the problem is that I know I would be fine (who knows, maybe better than fine) in both Madison and DC. DC of course has a million opportunities, but then again it also has the ultra ambition folks, my main reservation about the city. The best school for me is La Follette, the highest ranking, especially well known for social policy. I know Humphrey is really well regarded in the Midwest as well. American I am more uncertain about; does anyone know if it’s actually a good school? The best price is American. For the total two years I would only have to take out 7000 in loans, for La Follette its about 20000, and for Humphrey its 26000 (although I am on a waitlist for a scholarship). All of these are acceptable amounts to take out in loans, although the thought of less than 10000 in loans is so good (and I might be able to put away 5000-10000 this summer to cover that anyway…). So I just want some outside opinions on weighing these factors. City is the least important. It’s really a balance between financial concerns and quality of school. I really want to better understand just how American stacks up academically. Thanks in advance for any advice!
Hi All. Anyone know or have experience about the MPP program in Humphrey school (UMN - twin cities)? I can only find limited information in the forum. I searched for some rankings, this school shows fine rank. In addition, my friend who visited UMN told me it is a very good school. And most importantly, this school gives me best impression in application process because of their professional service and their staff's patience. I am really interested in this school even though I also got other admissions from GPPI, SIPA etc. Now I need some kind guys who can offer me any information about this program. Really appreciate your help! Alex
