  1. Hello Everyone! I am hoping to get some thoughts on a few grad programs I have been admitted to for International Affairs / Human Rights. I would so appreciate any insights people have! Money is a huge factor. I graduated undergrad with no debt, and have about 30k in savings, but I know I don't want to take on a ton of debt since non-profit work isn't particularly lucrative. I also assume about 12k / year will be needed for housing. My options: -Fletcher / Tufts, MGA ($9k scholarship) full program cost is ~80k -BU Pardee, MAIA ($24k scholarship - waiting to find
  2. Hello All! I have read many insightful posts on the topic of IR grad programs and was hoping we could revisit for 2021? My options: -SAIS ($2k/year scholarship) -GW - Security Policy Studies Program ($14k/year scholarship) -Fletcher ($15k/year scholarship) (Shoutouts: American ($15k/year sch) and Texas A&M (significantly the cheapest option) I want to study Gender, Peace, and Security with a regional focus in the Middle East. I’m interested in working for the State Department or an international agency. Everyone is pushing me towards John

  4. Hi everyone! I was recently admitted to Johns Hopkins SAIS (MA) and The Fletcher School (MALD), and while after countless hours of comparing I’ve gained a pretty good understanding of each program, I still feel very stuck on which to choose. Within the IR framework, I’ll be concentrating in security/conflict resolution with a further focus on the Middle East. I want to use grad school as a way to open myself up to career opportunities, but want to focus on the diplomatic track, research for think tanks/UN, or even the possibility of journalism which has always been a passion.

  6. Hello all, I was recently accepted into both Fletcher's MALD program and the MPIA program over at Pitt/GSPIA. Unfortunately, my chances to visit these campuses were dashed by the COVID-19 outbreak. With that in mind, I was wondering if anyone could provide any insights into these programs, life in their respective hometowns, and opportunities for post-grad work, as I am weighing my options and exploring each potential path. As of now, I'm quite interested exploring how the topic of health fits into the field of security studies, especially when it concerns natural or man-made disaste
  7. Can anyone help out with a qualitative comparison of the two programmes? I've been accepted to both, but I know for sure that I will have to take up a substantial student loan in order to study at Fletcher. I was wondering if it would be worth it, or if I could gain a similar/better experience and job opportunities (minus a loan) at the Graduate Institute, Geneva? Also was wondering how much branding matters. Everyone around me seems to think that Fletcher is quite the name to have tagged to your CV, but don't seem to really think similarly about the Graduate Institute. Would love to hear some
  8. Hello everyone, I've heard back from most programs I have applied to and have been given around one month to make final decisions. I'm an American-European dual citizen and have lived in Germany, France and the United States (and am fluent in those languages). I was admitted to 1) one-year program in Russian, East European and Eurasian studies at Stanford University without any funding. I'll get FAFSA and have another scholarship that will pay around ~10,000$. Pros: name recognition (!), small cohort (~5-7), very interesting classes and great professors, chance to learn more
  9. So I just got an email with the subject line “an update from the fletcher school” from Dan Birdsall at admissions. It was personalized (addressed to me by name with things he enjoyed reading about in my application). Did anyone else get this/know if there’s a history of these being sent out and what it could mean? Probably just a courtesy thing to applicants while we wait, but I’m curious! Thanks!
  10. So, Fletcher School at Tufts University has been my dream school for some time now. I got admitted into MALD and want to specialise in Development Economics but also take a few classes in Social Entreprenurship and International Political Economy. The flexibility of the MALD degree allows me to do that. I am particularly drawn to the cross registration option with Harvard and would love to take Social Entrepreneurship classes at Harvard Business School and also build some contacts. My problem is funding. I have received funding of $24k for two years (12k per year) from Fletcher. Still, th
  11. Hello! I have been recently accepted to two really good programs, the Master of Public Policy at the University of Michigan and the Master of International Business at the Fletcher School at Tufts. Tufts offered me a $40k scholarship (20/year) however my acceptance is on the condition I take a quantitative course at community college before August (the quant section of the GRE got the best of my anxiety even after studying for a year). UofM isn't offering any fellowships for me at the moment however I would qualify for in-state tuition. However, my greatest priorities are the curri
