  1. Sorry in advance if this is posted in the wrong spot. I'm a first gen college student and I'm having trouble determining if I'm good enough to get into the schools, or if it's just a waste of money to apply to all of these right away. How did you all go about determining whether or not you have a chance to get in or not? I've talked my choices over with my former professors and they said I have a pretty good chance of getting in to most of these, but I'm not sure if they were just being nice. Is there a formula you all followed to determined which schools were reasonable for you?
  2. Hello! I was recently accepted to both American and GWU and am having a hard time choosing between the two schools. I am starting my MPA this fall with the hopes of pursuing a career in the nonprofit sector. Does anyone have any advice on the two schools/programs? I know that GWU is ranked a bit more highly than AU, but in terms of the MPA programs, the two schools seem pretty even. I also know that GWU is right in the heart of DC whereas AU is more in the suburbs, but that isn't a huge factor to me. If anyone has any input or advice, it would be greatly appreciated!
  3. Hi! I was wondering if anyone has heard back from this program yet?
  4. I'm in the process of selecting which school in the greater Washington, DC area to undertake a master's in public policy degree at. I've been working full-time here since 2016 and plan on continuing to work 9-5 for the next three years while I am completing my MPP. I've been accepted into all 5 schools I've applied and for now have them ranked as: 1) Georgetown 2) George Washington 3) George Mason 4) American 5) Maryland Georgetown and George Washington are extraordinarily expensive, but I think they have the best curricula and flexibility for part-time stu
  5. So Guys would you help me please. I am accepted to the International Education Policy and Management in Peabody School of Education in Vanderbilt University and also the Education Policy and Leadership Program in American university. I have got merit scholarship from AU and Vanderbilt promised me the same thing too (vandy has not sent me the official announcement about the funding yet). Vandy offers Thesis or capstone project while AU offers capstone only. What do you think guys?
  6. Hi everyone - I just wanted some advice on what to do here. I'm applying for an MA in International Affairs and I got into the other three schools to which I applied (Florida State, Florida, and Syracuse). I got partial funding for both Florida State and Florida, no funding at Syracuse. My top choice is SIS at American University. Today I got my decision and it was the following: "The committee saw great potential in your application, but is not able to admit you at this time. However, the committee has recommended that you take some courses at SIS in the fall as a non-degree student and
  7. I've been accepted to the MA National Security & Foreign policy program at American University and the MA International Security program at the Josef Korbel School. I've been trying to choose between the two and it has proven to be a very difficult process. I will be relying on loans to pay tuition, so money is serious concern. I want a program that is geared toward policy development and encourages the 'think tank' approach. Help!
  8. I was accepted into SIPA, Tufts, SAIS, SIS, and CIR. ALL of the schools have offered generous funding. SIPA offered me the most by far: over $67k in funding for the 2 years plus an International Fellowship. SAIS offered full funding for the first semester in Bologna. I'll email to ask about 2nd year funding. Tufts gave me over $40k for 2 years, SIS & CIR gave me 1/2 off tuition waiver. Any of these options would require some debt, which is fine. I'm not risk averse. I'm just trying to find the best option. I am interested in terrorism and security studies; I alread
  9. My application status for American University is still pending. I've seen scores and scores of people getting their decisions since late February. I've been in contact with AU for about thee weeks now and every time they say "give it a few days." I'm slowly losing hope. I just don't know what else to do or say or whaaaaat. AU is my top choice but are the ones slowly crushing my soul.
  10. I just got an email from American saying a decision has been made on my application and to log in. So I logged into the applynow spot but I don't know where the decision is... Someone tell me where to look. This is eluding me.
  11. Hello, I was wondering if anyone had more info about the Development Management program at SIS. I can't seem to find much beyond what is on the SIS webpage. Nothing on alumni or anything. It seems like a very interesting program. Anyone here go attend?
