  1. I have not seen a lot of people talking about Duke Sanford MPP on here. So decided to create this. It would be great if people would comment on the fact that not many people are interested in MPP at Duke even when it is one of the best courses out there. Also it would be great if someone could comment on whether it poses a problem for policy students at Duke to study in a small town and whether that hinders their internship or job prospects in big cities which universities like Georgetown have it a little easy. Not heard good reviews about Georgetown hence it is important for me to know about
  2. I recently finished the application season (Masters) and have the following acceptances: UCSD, Duke, Columbia, Boston University, Northwesterm These are amongst others (Yale, Berkeley, Cornell, Michigan, UCLA, etc.) however they were either one year or non-thesis programs, or the university's main focus was not BME so I have decided to throw those out. Again if you think that isn't a wise decision please let me know. I have also been waitlisted at Hopkins, and am looking to accept that should I get in. Anyone familiar with these schools that can help me out? I am looking ve
  3. I am currently trying to decide between Yale, Harvard and Duke, and I have the best tuition package by far from Duke. My question is whether the classroom experience is as rigorous as it might be at Harvard or Yale-- assuming Harvard and Yale classroom experiences are all that rigorous. Does anyone have any insight?
  4. I'm an international student from India and I've been offered admission to Duke and USC for an MS in BME. I've spoken to a lot of people from both colleges, and I seem to get the general idea that USC is a great place primarily because of its location in California where there are a lot of BT/Biomed companies. But I'm still pretty torn between them, since Duke has a great program and offers me the flexibility to really explore what I like. As somebody who wants to enter the industry, I'm not sure if I should pick the much lower ranked program/good location, or great program/okay location. Any
  5. Hey all, I've been accepted into Umich (MS in Applied Statistics) and Duke (MA in Economics) while still waiting for news from Cornell. Anyway I am hesitating a lot between these two schools...Duke probably enjoys a better reputation worldwide but to be honest I prefer Statistics than Economics. Another great thing about Duke I heard is that students are allowed to get enrolled in a wide range of courses and I don't know yet if this is the case in Umich. I also have the desire to continue my study in a doctoral level after Master and I suppose both programs will offe
  6. Hi all, Decision day is right around and wanted this forum's insight on making this decision. Both of the school has offered me equal scholarships ~30k per year, so in case of financial bit, both are equal (I know folks who got more than this). Even though Yale seems to have a loan from university for international students as well to cover the balance of the cost, so that is a plus. However for Energy specialization, program wise Duke seems better. Also, the internship support is better I hear (Stanback and others) but would need further verification on this. I want to primarily go into
  7. Hello everyone, I have received admits from both DUke and NCSU. In Duke I have been offered MS in ECE whose cost is $77,000 for one academic year but the program rank is in top 20's according to USNEWS. The other admit is from NCSU for MS in Computer Engineering. Now, though the rank of the program is in top 40's but the program cost is $45,000 ish. Living expenses are similar due to them being close to each other. I am in a dilemma, whether to go for the better program with high cost, for which I will be taking loans or to go for the low price and okayish program. Also, Duke
  8. Hi everyone! Just heard back from Duke that I got admitted into the CMB (Cell and Molecular Biology) program. I’m glad to go back to where I did a wonderful summer internship before, but as I got another offer from the CMDB (Cell, Molecular, Developmental Biology, and Biophysics) program at Johns Hopkins previously, it turns out to be a tough decision to make. I am an international student from China and my research interest is developmental biology/stem cell. It seems that both programs will be a good fit for me (several PIs I want to work with, comparable stipend, gr
  9. Hi all, Is a score of 307 too low for funding consideration and/or admission to an MPP program? I am not great at standardized tests which is why I am debating retaking it, however, I am not sure I can do that much better. This is the one portion of my application that is causing me anxiety. 5.5 Writing 153 Q 154 V My undergraduate GPA is 3.33 (3.60 in my major) and I will have five years of work experience by the time I enroll. Most of my experience is in private sector within the healthcare industry. Schools I am applying to: Michigan (Ford), Duke (Sanfor
  10. Hi Everyone, I have been admitted into UT Austin's MSBA and Duke's MQM program but I'm unable to decide which one would be better. Any thoughts?
  11. Goals/Interests: Econometrician/Biostatistician, or a Statistician/Data Scientist with domain/research focus in the biotech venture capital industry. (Or, some ‘correct’ combination of these or related labels that might be more appropriate…) Beyond market/industry research, I would also like to focus on understanding the underlying statistical methodologies and techniques being applied in medicine/biotechnology/health science (i.e. machine learning's application etc. etc.…) My goal is to convince a biotech venture capital firm that they could benefit from employing a statisti
  12. Hi everyone! I'm trying to decide between statistics doctoral programs. My top choices at this point are Duke, the University of Michigan - Ann Arbor (with a fellowship that exempts me from teaching/service obligations for my first year and two additional semesters of my choice), and NC State (with a fellowship for the first year). Duke and Michigan offered comparable stipends. NC State's stipend was slightly lower, but they suggested that they could try to match other offers. I'm interested in the research at all three schools, even though there are major differences. I am finishing my Bachel
  13. How do I select between the following- 1. University of Michigan at Ann Arbor- School for Environment and Sustainability- MSc in Natural Resources and Environment- Specialization in Sustainable Systems 2. Duke University- Nicholas School of Environment- Master of Environmental Management- concentration in Energy and Environment 3. Penn State University- MSc in Energy and Mineral Engineering concentration in Energy Management and Policy 4. Cornell University- MSc in Mechanical Engineering- concentration in Energy and Sustainability 5. Carnegie Mellon University- MS in E
  14. Anybody who is applying to MEM programs in Yale FES, Duke Nicholas School, UCSB Bren, etc.?
  15. 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
  16. Hi all, Is a score of 307 too low for funding consideration and/or admission? I am not great at standardized tests which is why I am debating retaking it. 5.5 Writing 153 Q 154 V My undergraduate GPA is 3.33 (3.60 in my major).

  17. Hi all, I'm thinking about applying to Duke (both ThD and PhD), Chicago, and Fuller for a PhD in theology (with an emphasis on theological ethics, political theology, modern theology (19th century European)). I would love to hear feedback from some people with experience regarding my chances for acceptance. I have two major concerns about my credentials, but I'll lay out my profile to provide some context. B.A. in Philosophy from Rutgers University. (GPA 2.0) <-- first major point of concern-- I was NOT in a good place at the time, struggling with depression and probably generall
  18. I’ve been accepted to a number of masters programs, of which I’m seriously considering the following: - LSE's Msc. in Economics (2 year programme) - Duke's MS in Economics and Computation (40% tuition waiver) - Columbia's MA in Economics - NYU's MA in Economics - Tufts' MS in Economics (80% tuition waiver plus TAship) I currently work as an analyst for a government agency with a pretty heavy research component. My goal is to eventually pursue a PhD, though I’m not as competitive a candidate as I’d like to be quite yet (missing certain courses, eg rea
  19. I have been accepted into the Duke MS Economics and Computation program. I wanted to know the reviews of this particular program. What is the cost of the attendance? Also I wanted to know about the funding, financial aid and availability of student jobs.
  20. I saw that someone posted that they got into the Master of Environmental Management program for F17, and if someone is willing to claim it, when did you submit the application? I spoke with the office and they said admissions was rolling so I wanted to see when I should expect to hear back.
  21. Hi everyone! I recently applied to sociocultural anthropology masters programs as well as east asian studies masters programs because I was interested in studying east asian countries through an anthropological lens. I was accepted into Duke (interdisciplinary), Columbia(socio anthro), Oxford (socioanthro), and UPenn(east asian). I already rejected UPenn because their east asian studies program seemed to be focused on history whereas I wanted to focus more on contemporary. To be honest though, I am not completely set on whether or not I want to study east asian cultures just yet and
  22. Help! The decision is right around the corner, and I need to start mentally preparing for this (huge) life change/decision. For anyone who has considered, attended, or decided - where do I pursue my MEM, Duke or Yale? I visited Duke, and I could tell it was a great program. The administration is clearly willing to help students out financially, supportive with research and work opportunities, and they consistently tout their alumni network as one of the best. Many people seem to say Duke really emphasizes building concrete technical skills, and that it might be easier to find a job u
  23. Hello guys, Iam a 2018 MS in Data Science aspirant, and have received admission offer from UIUC and Duke University. Based on the following points, can you share your thoughts on which university should I finalize: The program at UIUC is "MS in Statistics with a concentration in Analytics", offered by the Department of Statistics, and the Duke program is "MS in interdisciplinary Data Science", offered by Social Science Research Institute (SSRI) and Information Initiative at Duke (IID). Curriculum wise, I like both the programs equally well. The only difference is
  24. Hi everyone, I am currently in the process of deciding which grad school to attend and could really use some advice. I know I have some great options but each one seems to have its pros and cons. I was accepted into MIT and Duke's mechanical engineering PhD program and Georgia Tech's Robotics program. My interest is medical robotics and as of now I plan to go into industry after graduation. Listed are the pros and cons of each school. Georgia Tech: pros - I received a prestigious medical robotics 2 year fellowship. This fellowship would let me choose who I work with and I have
  25. I am deciding between Duke and UNC-Chapel Hill for a Chemistry Ph.D. I know UNC has a stronger chem program overall but I am looking to do more chem bio with biomed applications, and Duke has one of the best med schools. In terms of research groups, they're pretty balanced with 2-3 groups at each school that I could work for. So in re: pros/cons, UNC and Duke are tied for me. My question is: are students happier/less stressed at Duke or at UNC? I get that UNC has a top program and that likely comes with additional stress, but is it so bad I should choose Duke instead? I know that
