  1. Hey! I applied to the Leadership and Policy program at Peabody and I'm having a rough time with this whole waiting it out period. Super anxious to hear about decisions! I created the thread for other fall 2020 applicants in the same boat. Feel free to share where else you applied and what contact with faculty in the department has been like!
  2. I've gotten 2 years of Peace Corps teaching experience in South America, and have been working (in a junior admin role) at a charter school in a poverty-stricken town along the East Coast for the past two years. Now, I'm thinking of heading back to school, and would love to study at a MPA/ MPP program targeting US k-12 education challenges. Any recommendations? Goals: Post-degree, either I'll target senior roles in charter schools etc, or move into education & public policy research (got lucky with a 170Q, 332 total GRE - hope that helps!). Still pretty undecided though. Schools:
  3. Hi all, Thanks in advance for your input. I could really use it! I've been accepted to the following schools for the Master of Public Policy. I intend to study education policy. UVA (with sizable scholarship) Berkeley (no scholarship) Columbia (1/4 scholarship) Duke (about 1/2 scholarship) UChicago (about 1/4 scholarship, but could change) Michigan (about 1/3 scholarship, but could change) Carnegie Mellon (about 3/4 scholarship) Vanderbilt (very small scholarship) I was also waitlisted at HKS. Because of financial concerns, I'm priori

  5. Hi all, I was wondering if anyone on here has any experience of studying at UIC. I have been accepted to their PhD programme in Urban Education Policy, but cannot see any posters on grad cafe who have attended. Any info about the university in general and specifically the education department would be much appreciated - as I live abroad I cannot go and visit before having to make my decision. Thanks
  6. Hi everyone, I am an international student from China who is seeking to apply to PhD programs in education policy, specifically in program designs and evaluation for 2017 fall. I did my undergrad in China, and am graduating next spring with two Master's degrees from the graduate school of education in a top Ivy, one in literacy education and the other in statistics (kind of like applied statistics in social science context). I am aiming at top 50 universities (the names of the universities would matter a little to me, because I might go back to China after I get the degree and I feel that name
  7. Hi All, I am from Pakistan and planning to do my masters in International Education Policy/Development. I have applied to various programs and scholarships over the past couple of years including one MPA AND MPP program. My story is pretty much summed up in the image. While I am still waiting to hear from Fulbright, university scholarships from UPENN, Kings and UCL; I need to be clear about what I should do if I don't get any of that. UPENN is like a dream school but even with 10,000 grant, I will need to take at least 80,000 dollars in loan. I wanted to know if its worth it? Cause
  8. I'm undecided between education policy, urban economic policy and energy policy. I've heard back from some programs and waiting to hear back from 3 more (Duke Sanford, Harvard Kennedy, Berkeley Goldman). So far, everything has been positive. Financial aid is a concern, but I believe I can also get loan forgiveness after school. I listed schools in order of rankings, but I would like to hear from others about choices or if they know much about programs. I intend to eventually pursue a Ph.D. and/or work for an advocacy group. I was admitted to the following: -U Chicago Harris (minimal finan
  9. Altho I'm still waiting on decisions from some other schools, I am pretty sure my decision will come down to GSE & Peabody. I am in the MPP Education Policy program and am trying to figure out which school will be best for me. Is anyone in a similar situation? So far this is what I have: Upenn - One year program (much cheaper & i'm receiving some financial aid) - smaller program - Philly is great & close to my family and friends - Interesting courses and sociological research based - GSE has been very helpful and has sense of community especially thru the admissions proc
