  1. From what I've researched online this question seems to be popular so I thought should see what everyone thinks. I applied for the 2019 fall semester and am still waiting to hear back from SAIS, SIPA, and MSFS but I was recently accepted into both the Elliott School's MA program of International Affairs as well as SIS's MA in International Affairs: Comparative and Regional Studies program. I received a decent funding package from the Elliott School but am still waiting to hear back on funding from SIS. I wanted to reach out to everyone here and get your thoughts about either school. I've seen that some people seem to hold the Elliott School in higher esteem for potential internships and job prospects. Personally, because my focus of study is on East Asia and I come from a background of fairly extensive research experience in South Korea, I was wondering if I could get your thoughts on which program may best for me. I want to work for the government following graduation but because both schools are located in DC, it seems that networking and hustling for contacts is a pretty fair toss-up between the two. I would greatly appreciate everyone's insights and thoughts!!
  2. Hello all, I'm going to add to the chaos this decision-making season. I have been accepted to the strategic studies program at SAIS DC with no funding, GWs Security Policy Studies Program with 7k a year, and Korbel's International Security program with 20k a year. I already live in Denver, and I know that Security is one of Korbel's top programs. But, will I be at a disadvantage if I am not in DC? I know Korbel offers the Global Security Program in DC for second year students, but it is highly competitive. Also, GW allows for two concentrations, the second of which for me would be development. I know a lot of people will say follow the money, but it's hard to turn down an opportunity like SAIS or Elliott. Also, has anyone tried appealing for more funding to any of these schools? I know it's unlikely with SAIS, but if Elliott and Korbel were aware of my acceptance to SAIS, is there even the slightest chance of receiving more funding? I've heard there's no harm in asking, but I would like some advice. Congrats to all who got in and good luck!
  3. Hey all, I'm going into my masters for IA/IR straight out of undergrad. I've narrowed it down to 3 choices: The Elliott School at GW, SIS at American, and the Maxwell School at Syracuse. My issue is that I know all of the benefits that being in DC would bring: networking, internships, etc. However, neither GW nor American offered me any funding, and Maxwell offered me enough to make my tuition for the entire program $42k, compared to GW and AU w/o funding being $130k an $120k, respectively. Originally I was leaning towards GW, but can I responsibly go into potentially $80k or so worth of debt? Plus with Syracuse it's only a 16-month program as opposed to a full two years, and while Syracuse itself doesn't provide any real opportunities, I can spend my summer's in DC or abroad and my final semester in DC. If anyone has any insights as to whether the benefits of being DC really outweigh these high costs or if Syracuse does an adequate enough job to justify me going, I'd really appreciate it!
  4. Hi everyone! I've recently received admissions notifications for grad school and decided to turn to The Grad Cafe for help and/or input in deciding which school I should attend. Hopefully i get some feedback soon, considering the deadline is on April 15! Anyway, a little background on myself. I am a 23 year old female person from Malaysia. Got my Bachelor's in International Relations from Boston University (Class of 2015) and am currently working as a researcher at a foreign policy think tank in my country. Hoping to go back to grad school this Fall 2017. I applied to all IR MA programs, 6 in total, and all 6 accepted me. The 6 schools and programs are: Columbia SIPA (MIA) Johns Hopkins SAIS (MA) University of Denver Josef Korbel School (MA in Intl Human Rights) George Washington Elliott School (MA in Global Communication) UT Austin LBJ School (MGPS) Tufts Fletcher (MALD) I honestly did not expect to get into all 6 programs, which is why I am having trouble deciding. I've created an Excel spreadsheet to look over all the relevant details in order to help me make the best choice but what do you guys think are the programs I should give more weight to? All of the programs i've applied to are of the international human rights/humanitarian policy with a global communications/public service/policy orientation. I like these programs because they are all interdisciplinary and most emphasize on practical applications of knowledge rather than theoretical. For example, rather than complete an MA thesis, some of these programs require Capstones or practical internships instead. My weaknesses are economics and numbers. Some of these schools have also offered me scholarships/fellowships - the only two who haven't are SIPA and SAIS. What i'm taking into consideration when picking schools/programs are mainly cost of attendance, scholarship/fellowship offered, reputation/ranking and cost of living (since i'm guessing i'd most probably have to live off campus, self housing). Prior to receiving admissions notices, I had my own personal choice ranking but now, some of it has shifted. For example, NYC cost of living alone is a number that i am not sure I would be able to afford (let alone cost of attendance of 80k per year) so Columbia has moved down slightly on my list. I am going to apply to government scholarships from my country that would cover cost of living etc, everything total but the problem is i have to make a commitment to a school soon and scholarships here generally have 3-4 rounds of interviews so it might not work out in my favor soon enough. That's pretty much the basic gist of it! Looking forward to any and all input, opinions, first hand knowledge and experiences that you guys can offer!
  5. I've applied to several MA programs in international relations, and I'd love some pointers from people who anything about the following schools:Johns Hopkins SAISGeorge Washington U (The Elliott School)American U (School of International Service)The Middlebury Institute of International Studies at Monterey (International Policy and Development)I've already been accepted into MIIS and they've offered a free Summer language program at the Middlebury campus in VT as well as a (small) scholarship grant, which is attractive to me because I don't have a working knowledge of Mandarin, the language I'm interested in, and MIIS's focus on language learning seems to be unmatched by other schools. The thing that worries me is that MIIS doesn't have the prestige of the other schools in DC, not to mention that DC is obviously far richer in job/networking/internship opportunities than Monterey. For what it's worth, my interests are in China-Taiwan relations, and I'm not super interested in development.Assuming I get into at least one of the DC schools, which school is the best? I'm confident that I'll get in, but I'm not confident that I'll receive any merit-based aid like I did at MIIS (meaning I'll likely go into a larger amount of debt).
