  1. Hi Everyone, I was accepted to both the MSFS program at Georgetown and the MA program at SAIS (Johns Hopkins) (DC/Bologna). I received almost double the funding at SAIS than Georgetown and I am really torn about which program to choose. The rankings are pretty close but Georgetown is #1 right now, even though these alternate quite a bit. My main question is "Is the MSFS degree at Georgetown worth almost double the amount than SAIS?" I would love any insight or clarity about this question. I know both programs are great, but would like to hear more insight about if SFS is actually worth t
  2. Hi everyone, I know admissions decisions are still a long ways away, but I thought it could be helpful to discuss the comparative merits of these great IR and public policy programs. I applied to HKS's MPP, Columbia's MIA, Georgetown's MSFS, WWS's MPA, and SAIS's MA. I also applied to Georgetown's Security Studies Program, but am leaning away from the latter now because of high tuition costs and rumored lack of aid. How do you feel these schools compare to one another, in terms of job prospects, curriculum/course offerings, school culture, academic rigor, faculty? Which would
  3. I’m trying to decide whether to pursue the MSFS or SSP at Georgetown. I’m also interested in the graduate certificate in Arab Studies. My main career goal is to be an intelligence analyst in the counterterrorism field but I’m very interested in politics and international affairs overall. I’ve read that MSFS is the “golden child” program at SFS and I’m worried that the SSP doesn’t measure up to it. I think I am more attracted to the rigor and faculty of the MSFS, but it concerns me that the program is only offered full time (whereas SSP is offered part time). I will barely be able to afford Geo
  4. I plan to apply to the MSFS program at Georgetown for Fall 2019 as well as a few other international relations programs. My long term goals include a career in the counterterrorism field. I'm interested in the University of Maryland's Graduate Certificate in Terrorism Analysis and I'm wondering if you all think it would have any affect on my chances of getting into grad school. Would it help pad my application or are certificates largely irrelevant to admissions committees? what about for scholarship prospects? For what it's worth, the certificate program is only one year long (2 semesters and
  5. Has anyone heard back from Sam Houston about their MSFS (master of science in forensic science) program?
  6. Hi everyone, Quick question about the two programs that Georgetown University School of Foreign Service has, the Security Studies Program and the Master of Science in Foreign Service. Does anyone know if one is better than the other in terms of acceptance rate, job prospects and earnings, academic, etc? I saw online that MSFS acceptance rate is 30-40% while SSP is 20-25%. Don't know if that makes much of a difference. Also, two programs seem to have different focus, one more qualitative and the other more quantitative. Would appreciate if someone could shed some light on this as I am tryi
  7. Over the weekend, I was (unofficially) accepted to Georgetown's MSFS!!! I am, of course, over the moon as this is my top choice. According to the email, I was waitlisted for a scholarship. Does anyone have any experience with this? How likely is it that funding will come through? And how long are the waitlists for these? I've (of course) applied for outside funding, but most of those do not notify until April, so the cost of attendance is a bit scary at the moment.
  8. I'm applying for the Sam Houston State University MSFS program (fall 2018 cycle) and I would be eternally grateful for some information. Having a lot of trouble finding answers. How soon after applying did you receive an acceptance or rejection? For anyone in the program: What are your thoughts? What has been the greatest challenge? Any response is greatly appreciated!!
  9. Yo everyone - hope you're all well, So I'm looking into getting a dual MIA-MBA degree. I basically want to get involved in international business strategy - Evaluating foreign markets, expansion, best approaches, etc. And I'm thinking that a dual MIA-MBA would be perfect. Despite the massive debt, I'd be a unique candidate - the MBA would give me solid business acumen while the MIA would help me hone my language skills and solidify my theoretical knowledge of the world economy. Now I've only got a couple years of work experience, which is a little on the low side for bschool , but given t
  10. Hello everyone, I wasn't able to find a specific thread for MSFS Fall 2017 cycle so I thought I would go ahead and start one! Has anyone been in contact with the admissions office? I'm hopeful that we'll hear back this week!
  11. Hi all, I've been researching Georgetown programs and although I know the emphasis for McCourt vs SFS is different I'm wondering if both are equally as good and offer as many opportunities. I am interested in a program that joins together Public Policy and International Affairs. I want to learn about both domestic and international issues and how they meet and influence each other. I'm interested in some quantitative training while also having freedom to learn about international law, human rights, diplomacy, and history. Which program do you think is best and how do they compare? I'd al
  12. Hi all, (Posted in the Government Affairs section with no responses, so am trying my luck here!) Hoping to get views on two offers - Georgetown Masters of Science in Foreign Service and Chicago Harris MPP. I've heard good things about both schools, and am pretty torn, so wanted to get views on which school/programme would be better for future career prospects in the US, either at a foreign policy/security-related think tank, or private sector consulting firm (either IR-focused or general e.g. McKinsey). In terms of background, I'm an international student, so would be
  13. Hi all, I feel really lucky to be deciding between two offers - Georgetown Masters of Science in Foreign Service (waitlisted for funding) and Chicago Harris MPP (10k funding). I've heard good things about both schools, and am pretty torn, so wanted to get views on which school/programme would be better for future career prospects, either at a foreign policy/security-related think tank, or private sector consulting firm (either IR-focused or general e.g. McKinsey). In terms of background, I'm an international student, so would be ineligible for US government jobs. I'm confident of be
  14. I have been admitted into Georgetown SSP, however I did not receive any funding. The program, due to less required credits, is about 30k less than Georgetown MSFS. However 70k for tuition over two years is still difficult to swallow. For those familiar with similar programs (including SAIS, HKS, Fletcher, GWU, etc.), what are the best external funding sources available to students in their second year? I have also heard of people gaining employment with a federal agency in their first year, and taking advantage of programs that pay for your remaining year in exchang
  15. Hey all, As we get closer to admissions decisions being released I thought it might be useful to have a thread dedicated to Georgetown's SFS and its MSFS program. I have applied for Fall 2016 admission and would love to hear from others who have applied for this cycle, as well as those who have applied in the past and those who are intending to in the future. I'm hoping this can serve as a general discussion of our decision making processes and a place to flesh out the nuances of MSFS and make informed comparisons to rival schools/programs. For me, the MSFS program is my number on
  16. Hey Guys, What a wonderful time to be alive! Yet there are many decisions to be made! I have been offered admission by three MA programs: SAIS Washington DC; Fletcher; American University; Georgetown's Security Studies program—though I will hear from them next week, I feel it is in the bag. My predicament is the following. I am a non-American student whose main areas of interest are international relations and international security. I want to devote my life to academia (preferably
  17. Hello, I've applied for a Masters Degree with a focus on International Developments and was accepted to WWS, JHU (SAIS - IDev), MSFS (IDEV), SIPA and Fletcher. I've received varied funding from each school (WWS of course is completely funded). I'm trying not let funding be my only factor in my decision making process but would appreciated others opinions regarding my choices. I'm interested in the intersection between the public and private sector. WWS has the least business focused curriculum but it has a strong CORE curriculum as well as the brand name. SAIS/DC are more professionally

  19. I'm very torn between three programs I really like, so if anyone has thoughts that I wouldn't see in the marketing blurbs, please chime in. Everyone seems to have opinions on the relative "cachet" of each name, the closeness of each community, the opportunities of the metro areas, etc. I'll be concentrating on international trade policy, seeking employment in gov't or business. Regions of interest :Latin America, East/Southeast Asia. I've been admitted for the MALD, ElSIA MA, and MSFS--just booked a ticket to visit each open house and get a feel, for whatever that's worth. Here are my
  20. For those of us with this specific set of options, this would be a great place to lay out the pros and cons of these three institutions. Everyone seems to have opinions on the relative "cachet" of each name, the closeness of each community, the opportunities of the metro areas, etc., but it's safe to say they're all great schools, and I'd feel lucky to study at any of them. I'll be concentrating on international trade policy, seeking employment in gov't or business. Regions of interest : Latin America, East/Southeast Asia.

  21. Hey everyone, sorry to create another 'Vs.' thread. If you don't mind, I'd like to ask for your opinions. I trying to decide between SAIS and Georgetown SFS and I'm having a tough time! My stated goal in my personal statements is to become a Commercial Service Officer. These people work at US embassies, but are members of the Department of Commerce, not the State Department, I believe. Among the many things CSOs do, their work mostly consists of promoting and assisting American businesses in other countries. In grad school, I want to focus on East Asia. East Asia has developed countri
  22. MSFS decisions are coming out, starting today. Looks like they've just updated their webiste. It's too bad it's over a two week timeframe though.. Good luck everyone!
