  1. For those of you admitted to both HKS and WWS and planning on trying to get to both visit days what's the gameplan for travelling and looking for reimbursement. I would ideally fly up to Boston then take a train to Princeton then fly back out of Newark but it looks like the timing may be cramped. I'm a PPIA Fellow and I remember being told that I'm guaranteed travel compensation for visits to PPIA consortium schools but it's impossible to find those kinds of guarantees written down online. Let me know what your plans are and maybe we can link up at some point or split a rental car
  2. Hello I am a prospective MPA/MPP/M.Dev student and I have applied to a couple of policy and administration programs for the Fall 2019 session. My grades in my earlier education are not good especially in Statistics and Calculus. I am not too hopeful that I will be getting admits at good colleges this session as my essays were also not upto the mark. I am ready to put in serious efforts for the next year application cycle and I want to start with the prerequisite courses (Stats and Calculus). I was wondering where can I take such courses for which credit are accepted by colleges like
  3. 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
  4. Hi Everyone! I am applying to HKS, WWS, SIPA, and SFS. Harvard Kennedy School is my dream school, and I wanted to know what you guys think my chances are: GRE: 164 Verbal, 163 Quant, 4.5 AWA Education: NYU Stern School of business, Major: Business (concentration was Marketing). GPA: 3.4 Work Experience: Currently work as a policy research analyst for the NYC Department of Transportation (8 months), worked at Unilever’s Future Leaders program for a year and a half prior this role Non-Profit Experience: Director of a non-profit I joined
  5. Hey guys! I haven't had any luck getting in touch with Princeton's admissions team by email (I suppose I could just call?) but I was hoping some of you might be able to answer my last-minute application questions. First- should the Policy Memo be annotated? Right now I have annotations for all the hard facts I cite and footnotes at the end, but I'm not sure if that will be useful for the admissions team, or even necessary. Second- where on their resume would they want past internships and research assistantships taken during college? Their blog post on this: http://wws.princeton.edu/
  6. Guys. We don’t have a dedicated thread for WWS this year. There are 2 threads that had raised specific queues which are being used for general discussion. Hence starting this...
  7. Dear Gradcafe community, As an international student, I can not afford to study at the US on my own funds. So I looked towards other means of funding and I have secured the Fulright award in a second tier policy program for 2018. HOWEVER, there is a big downside to Fulbright - grantees have (and I've made it bold to show that staying in the US is simply not an option legally) to return immediately to their home country right after the program ends. This means the US job market is off for me. Because of this (I really, really want to gain professional work experience in the US), I was cons
  8. Hey folks - saw a similar thready for 2016 applicants and thought I'd start something for 2017 applicants, too! Anybody else applying to Princeton WWS MPA for next year? Would love to hear from ya!
  9. Anyone know this year acceptance rate of HKS MPP, SIPA MPA, WWS MPA? Which school is the most selective policy school? I heard that HKS rate was around 25-30%. Has anyone attend admitted student day, how was it? I am unable to attend any. Please share your experiences. Thanks!
  10. 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
  11. Hey guys! I was wondering if any of you know what upper-tier Government schools on the East Coast offer the best financial aid packages for internationals? I know WWS is one of them... any other suggestions, though? I'm an international but I did my undergrad in the US, so I'm looking for ways to minimize any additional debt in grad school. Thanks!
  12. Last year I tried to apply straight into a PhD program in public policy with little success. In retrospect I think I should have applied to all MPP programs instead. A few offered automatic consideration for the MPP program, so I ended up at UMD - College Park with a 1/2 grad assistantship. I certainly dont want to waste a year in student loans, but I'm wondering if it's worth applying to WWS's MPA program this fall, given it's generosity with financial aid. WWS does not admit transfers, so I would have to take the full two years in addition to the year at Maryland. Supposing I did
