  1. Hi Everyone, I thought this forum was a super helpful resource when I was applying for grad schools and didn't see a lot of information about Georgetown's Global Human Development program, so I wanted to give it a shoutout! I am a current student in the program and would be happy to answer any questions about GHD, the application process, etc. Just to emphasize a few highlights here - two of my favorite things about GHD are the program itself and the people. I chose GHD for its practitioner oriented approach to development - both through the curriculum itself and the
  2. Hi everyone, I'm having a lot of difficulty deciding between the Master of Arts Globalization and International Development (SIDGS) and Master of Arts Public and International Affairs (GSPIA) at uOttawa. SIDGS has offered me a far greater scholarship while GSPIA has offered me a scholarship, but much lower. Should I be basing my decision on scholarship? I haven't done as much research into SIDGS as I'd have liked to, but on the surface level, I'm having difficulties identifying the differences between what SIDGS and GSPIA offer (aside from GSPIA's faculty and internship program, I know t
  3. Has anyone here done or know about the EGID MPhil at Cambridge University? What kind of topics are generally selected for theses and what is the experience of students during the thesis research? What do students generally go on to do? Does the course give a good foundation for pursuing PhD in Education later?
  4. Hi everyone! I'm a rising senior and I am hoping to pursue a PhD in Political Science Fall 2020. I'm having a hard time trying to figure out where to apply so I was hoping some people here had wisdom to share! I'm interested in development as well as democracy/citizenship with a focus on Sub-Saharan Africa. How much are letters and experience worth over say, the GRE? Does anyone have any schools in mind? College: Top 50 liberal arts college GPA: 3.95 Class rank: top 4% (hoping for Phi Beta Kappa) Major GPA (Political Science): 4.03 // Minor in history and
  5. I was admitted to SIPA for the MPA in Development Practice and NYU Wagner for the MPA in Public & Non Profit Management & Policy (International specialization) and was fortunate to receive funding from both. I'm aware that it's possible to request additional funding from each school, but as of now I'd be paying ~45k out of pocket for the 2 years at NYU and ~68k for the 2 years at Columbia. With a 22k difference (and this doesn't even include living expenses!), I'd like to know how Columbia's and NYU's programs compare (in terms of academics, internship & career opportunities, netwo
  6. Hi all, I’m a current grad student going to school for my masters in school counseling. I majored in psychology in undergrad but for a while wasn’t sure what I wanted to do. My undergrad GPA wasnt great (3.1). I’m on track to do well in my masters program (4.0 so far), but I also just started my program this past semester. I don’t have a lot of research experience aside from some typical undergrad research. I recently asked my current academic advisor how I can make myself a stronger PhD applicant (and if it’s realistic for me) so we will be meeting in the future to discuss. Part of
  7. Hey everyone. I'm looking into MPA programs to apply to this year or next year and I'm desperately hoping to find programs that are critical of the aid/development machine and that don't flinch around topics such as slavery, colonialism, the racial wealth divide, capitalism and neoliberalism, etc. This post greatly resonates with how I feel about the field of international development, both academically and professionally. I was pursuing a PhD in a humanities field but have gotten so tired about just talking, writing, and teaching about these topics. I'm ready for a degree that will equip me w
  8. Hello! I am currently a Research Investigator working for a reputed Institute in South India. The project is a panel survey funded by the Government and World Bank and we work with a reputed University in the USA who are our research partners. I moved into this field after working as a Business Journalist for over year in Delhi where I have published work, both written and in video. So I have two years of work experience in these respective fields. I'm part of a fellowship that works towards public policy solutions in India as well. I studied my bachelors in Economics and then a PG
  9. hi, i got accepted to UPenn IEDP, Vanderbilt IEPM, and i'm waiting for UCL (education and development). all three are masters. can anyone who got accepted or is a current student give some opinions about the degrees? upenn takes 1.5, vandy 2, and ucl 2 years upenn is in phily, so i think better networks? vandy is 2 years and i like this because i'm going quite directly from undergraduate but i think the network and job market might be smaller. and several ppl recommended ucl about development. i'm weighing the pros and cons about these schoo
  10. I am having a very diffiecult time deciding betweent uoft MGA and graduate institute geneva (iheid) for international development major. In terms of job prospects, name value and quality of education, does anyone have insight?
  11. Hi, Anyone heard back from Sciences Po PSIA Development? My last referee submitted his recommendation on 3rd Jan and I haven't heard back since. The application follow up page has not changed from when I first submitted the form and this makes me doubt if there was something wrong.
  12. I thought I would start a thread for us that applied to developmental psych programs! I thought this would be a good space to air our stress and see what invites have been sent out! I applied to the following schools and so far got an invite to UCLA for their interview/campus visit weekend: UCLA (invite to interview weekend) Temple University (pending) NYU (pending) Northwestern (pending - Human Development and Social Policy) Where else have people heard :)? Sending good vibes and luck!
  13. Hey everyone, I am applying next fall to Econ PhDs, shooting for something in the top 15. I had a 3.8 in undergrad in International Affairs - although had a B+ in a Principles of Macro class, and I'm finishing up a Master's in Development Economics with a 3.9 including a few A+'s in upper level theory and econometrics classes. 95th percentile quant GREs. About 2 years of solid RA experience and an internship at a leading development research group. My math backround is as follows: A in Calc for Business and Economics (UG), As in several statistics courses (UG), A in Elementary Line
  14. I am trying to gauge admissions outcomes for the upcoming admissions cycle for MA programs in international development and affairs. If you could, please include the following information in your response: GPA: GRE (Verbal/Math/Writing) Applied: Accepted: Rejected: Waitlist: description of relevant work experience and other factors: Thank you!
  15. Hello everyone, I am unapologetically paranoid about graduate school admissions. My undergraduate grades fluctuated quite a bit. I attended a community college for two years receiving a 3.4 GPA. I then transferred to a top 75 liberal arts college where I received a 3.2 GPA. My total undergraduate GPA works out to be a 3.3 which is not very good for more competitive programs in international development/public policy. I was hoping that I could get your feelings on my chances at admissions at Columbia SIPA and John's Hopkins SIAS. Other things to consider: I served in the Peace
  16. hello, not sure if a lot of you guys are familiar with Sciences-po but it's quite big in IR/Development/Political science. I got accepted in the international development(ma) and was wondering if there was anyone else. one thing to mention is that i'm not sure if i'll accept the offer because i'm interested in educational development and it seems that Sciences-po doesn't have a lot of courses in education.. seriously considering if i have to apply for the 2018-2019 term for American GSEs (+European schools too such as Oxbridge GSEs specializing in education
  17. I have a little over a week to make a decision! I've been accepted to 3 US programs with around the same scholarship (50%), same cost for tuition. UDenver's MA in International Development, Heller's MA in Sustainable International Development, and Emory's Masters of Development Practice. I've also been accepted to IHEID (the graduate institute in Geneva) for Development Studies and a dual program between Sciences Po and Columbia's SIPA for International Affairs. These will be comparable costs. I'm essentially still considering Korbel, Emory, and Sciences Po/SIPA, and they ar
  18. Hello everyone! I wanted to start a thread to see if there are any other applicants who applied to, or have heard back from, Fordham's IPED program. I know it is one of the smaller programs, but it also provides many funding opportunities and has some unique partnerships and career trajectories.
  19. I have been accepted to the Mphil in development Studies at Oxford and to International History at IHEID Geneva. While i prefer the course at Oxford, I also like the internship/networking opportunities at Geneva. I am curious as to which would be a better fit if i want to work in development policy. Any advice would be much appreciated! Specially by someone who's studied at either of these schools. Thanks!
  20. Has anyone here applied for other opps? Residencies/ conferences etc? I thought we could keep each other posted on when notifications/ interviews/ etc. go out.
  21. Hello, would appreciate thoughts regarding graduate school decisions/comments from people in the same boat. Interested in the Middle East, development, and human rights. I have State Dept. experience and did some volunteer NGO work in Lebanon. Accepted to: Middlebury Institute of International Studies at Monterey - International Policy and Development MA program ($14k fellowship over 2 years) George Washington University - Middle East Studies MA program, concentration in International Affairs and Development ($5k/year fellowship) - waiting on another fellowship that would fully
  22. Hello, I’m interested in education development and plan to work in international organizations such as UNESCO, UN, OECD, WB, and IEA. I was wondering which graduate school of education would be good. I numbered the questions for clarity. 1. Is an ivy league degree treated substantially differently in the education development field in terms of promotion, pay, and working environment? If not, I might as well just go to graduate school this Fall since I applied for Europe this year. 2. Do the European/American university graduates have different outcomes in working? Or is it just
  23. Hi, I am starting the MALD programme at Fletcher soon and need advise on courses to pick. I am a trained lawyer who has been working in the development sector. I am working to build a career in the international development space - working in an international agency on the legal side of things. However, I notice a lot of people in the development sector come with backgrounds in economics, finance and mathematics - which is not a strong skill of mine. My question is: do i need to take courses in econometrics, quantitative methods and related economics fiields of study ?
  24. hello I have been practicing law for the last five years at a commercial law firm and I am now switching over to the development side with an interest in helping others to make a change. I have applied for various masters courses as I am not yet certain which area I would like to focus on. I have received offers from:- 1. Kings College of London Msc Disasters, Adaptation and Development http://www.kcl.ac.uk/study/postgradu...nt-ma-msc.aspx Initially i applied to this course as they have a 3-6 month internship. Which i thought would be good for networking. Also the element of environment and de
  25. Hello All! Thanks to all who share and contribute here. This is my first post here. I am interested in a PhD focusing on Political Economy of African Development with a focus more on economic development and growth, democraticization and governance. I am not particularly keen on the conflict/civil war aspect of political economy of African development. 1. What programs, institutions in the US are ranked highest? 2. What professors are the leading thinkers and researchers in the field? 3. Would you recommend pursuing this via a Political Science Phd or an Economics PhD?
