  1. Hi everyone, I am a rising junior at Duke - studying public policy and political science. I'm considering applying to Duke's 4+1 MPP program. I would start the MPP my senior year. I am currently on 100% financial aid as an undergraduate. My concern is whether it make more sense to wait until senior year and attempt to get into a higher ranked program like Kennedy, Ford, Goldman, or SIPA. Or whether I should study for the GRE my junior year and attempt to get into the 4+1 program. Is there an actual difference in the quality of education or career outcomes between these insitutions for the MPP? I am most interested in social policy: immigration, wealth inequality, education. I would like to end up in federal or state government.
  2. Hello everyone. With the April 15th deadline approaching, I am quite confused about which Master's in Public Policy program to attend. I have been accepted to the following schools: Columbia SIPA (MPA) Chicago Harris Duke Sanford Michigan Ford Of these, Duke and Michigan have given me comparable funding that makes their total cost about $75k for two years (including living). Meanwhile Chicago and Columbia will cost me $130k and $160k respectively. Please give me advice on whether its worth paying full for Chicago/Columbia or not and why. If not, then which one of Duke/Michigan is better? I am broadly interested in socioeconomic development with an international focus, and am interested in research type jobs (think tanks, World Bank etc.). I chose to do a Master's because I first wanted to figure out whether I really wanted to do a PhD or not, so I would like to keep that option as well. Thanks for your help!
