  1. Hi everyone, I will you like your insights to help me decide which program to attend this fall. I was admitted to several schools however I have narrowed my choice to SAIS MIAR (50K scholarship and first year in Bologna), Pitt GSPIA Master in International Development (Full ride + monthly stipend), and Georgetown SFS Master in Latin American Studies (13K scholarship renewable for second year). I am in my last year of undergrad and my career goal is to join the USAID Foreign Service or the regular Foreign Service. I plan to focus my grad studies in development and human rights with

  3. I know there are a bunch of posts like this, but I am trying to decide between the Global Human Development program at Georgetown SFS and the International Development Studies program at the GW Elliott School. I received scholarships from both, but Georgetown would be about $35k more. I love the GHD program and its community, but it's hard to choose over a much cheaper option. Georgetown seems to be more prestigious and rigorous, but is it worth it in the long run? Any insights are appreciated, thanks!
  4. The answer to this is probably a simple no. However, this MA program suits my interests best, I am interested in multiple faculty members' work, and they have many job positions in initiatives I'm passionate about; I was already planning to hopefully get a graduate associate or TA job at one of their centers (with research that's exactly what I want to pursue). Everything about this program seems perfect except for the recent lack of funding (the biggest factor). Does this program have the prestige that makes it worth it, even without funding? It doesn't help that this is my only accepta
  5. Hi there! Posting to ask about recommendations of MA program in political science. International applicant here, with interest in democratic theory and ethnic politics. Currently received offers from U of Toronto MA in Polisci (1yr program, no funding, not thesis based program, 26k CAD tuition fee) and Georgetown MA in Democracy and Governance (2yr program, no funding, 120k expense for two years study including living expense) Still waiting for response from NYU, Chicago and UBC Any thoughts or recommendations? Thanks!!!
  6. Hi folks, For a Masters in international affairs and/or security - which program do you feel is best? I've been working as a program officer at an international peace organization for the past two years, and have recently finished up a BA in political science with a 3.94 GPA. I speak French, English, and Spanish, so language isn't an issue in terms of the francophone community in Geneva (I did my undergrad in French). I'm looking at applying to these schools in the fall of 2021 or 2022, depending on how the pandemic is, and will be working in my current role until then and as a resea
  7. I'm creating this new forum for those who applied to the Latin American Studies program at Georgetown. Please feel free if you want to introduce yourself and talk about the admissions process. Good luck!!
  8. Hey guys! I'm currently considering these three schools and programs and would love some insight: Master's in Global Policy Studies at UT Austin Master of Arts in Arab Studies at Georgetown University International Policy and Development at Middlebury Institute of International Studies at Monterey Just a couple notes: Location isn't super important. I know the argument for a lot of East Coast and big name schools is that they're ideal for networking and opportunities. However, I do have a job lined up post-grad that will be in DC, so the need to network and be in the
  9. Hi Everyone, I was accepted to both the MSFS program at Georgetown and the MA program at SAIS (Johns Hopkins) (DC/Bologna). I received almost double the funding at SAIS than Georgetown and I am really torn about which program to choose. The rankings are pretty close but Georgetown is #1 right now, even though these alternate quite a bit. My main question is "Is the MSFS degree at Georgetown worth almost double the amount than SAIS?" I would love any insight or clarity about this question. I know both programs are great, but would like to hear more insight about if SFS is actually worth t
  10. Anyone out there apply? Heard any indication on notification date?
  11. Starting a post for all those waiting it out with the Georgetown MPP program for fall 2020. Personally applied by the Jan 15th deadline.
  12. Hi Everyone, I thought this forum was a super helpful resource when I was applying for grad schools and didn't see a lot of information about Georgetown's Global Human Development program, so I wanted to give it a shoutout! I am a current student in the program and would be happy to answer any questions about GHD, the application process, etc. Just to emphasize a few highlights here - two of my favorite things about GHD are the program itself and the people. I chose GHD for its practitioner oriented approach to development - both through the curriculum itself and the

  14. Hi all, Somewhat new here. I'll try to keep this short. I've just been accepted to SAIS (MAIA/Bologna campus) with €25,000 funding per year which comes out to about a solid 50% scholarship. I've had my eyes on this program for years and have essentially been doing my best to keep my life and career in Europe (hence the European campus). I am fluent in German/French with intermediate Russian/Italian. The "problem" is that I'm not sure if I realistically have "better" options long term. Here's a quick look at my profile: GPA: 3.8/4.0 GRE: V: 162/Q: 158/W: 5.5 (I t
  15. Hi! I've applied to the following programs, and I was hoping to get some insight into which programs were worth the inve$tment - in terms of employability / phD prospects afterwards! Would love to hear any feedback! Thank you!! Stanford MA in POLS (Policy, Organization and Leadership Studies) - pending Columbia University MA in Education Policy - pending University of Pennsylvania MsEd in Education, Culture and Society - admitted with $10,000 scholarship and option to apply for GA (max. $3,500) Georgetown University MA in Educational Transformation - (unofficially
  16. Hi Grad Cafe. I'm exploring the possibility of applying to a Masters in International Relations program after being out of school for a bit. I've been looking at Tufts' Fletcher School's MALD and Georgetown's M.S. in Foreign Service as ideal programs for my career goals. However, I was looking at how both schools have a foreign language proficiency. I was a language minor in college with three years of Japanese study. I still study it lightly but I am wondering about how intensive the examinations are, particularly the oral examinations, so I can figure out a study regime for preparation if I
  17. Hi everyone, I know admissions decisions are still a long ways away, but I thought it could be helpful to discuss the comparative merits of these great IR and public policy programs. I applied to HKS's MPP, Columbia's MIA, Georgetown's MSFS, WWS's MPA, and SAIS's MA. I also applied to Georgetown's Security Studies Program, but am leaning away from the latter now because of high tuition costs and rumored lack of aid. How do you feel these schools compare to one another, in terms of job prospects, curriculum/course offerings, school culture, academic rigor, faculty? Which would
  18. I’m trying to decide whether to pursue the MSFS or SSP at Georgetown. I’m also interested in the graduate certificate in Arab Studies. My main career goal is to be an intelligence analyst in the counterterrorism field but I’m very interested in politics and international affairs overall. I’ve read that MSFS is the “golden child” program at SFS and I’m worried that the SSP doesn’t measure up to it. I think I am more attracted to the rigor and faculty of the MSFS, but it concerns me that the program is only offered full time (whereas SSP is offered part time). I will barely be able to afford Geo
  19. I got a full tuition scholarship at SAIS, which has me very close to accepting my offer there. My only hesitation is that right now I don't see myself in a job related to finance/trade/banking or even economics in general. I freaked myself out a little after comparing the "Employment Outcomes" sheet for SAIS with the sheet from Georgetown and seeing a lot more financial institutions for SAIS grads. I also have a contact who works on security issues at the State Department who told me that most SAIS grads at State work in Economic and Business Affairs or as Econ Desk Officers in the
  20. I plan to apply to the MSFS program at Georgetown for Fall 2019 as well as a few other international relations programs. My long term goals include a career in the counterterrorism field. I'm interested in the University of Maryland's Graduate Certificate in Terrorism Analysis and I'm wondering if you all think it would have any affect on my chances of getting into grad school. Would it help pad my application or are certificates largely irrelevant to admissions committees? what about for scholarship prospects? For what it's worth, the certificate program is only one year long (2 semesters and
  21. Hi I have been extremely lucky in being accepted into two great universities for my masters. Before I provide the details of the programmes, here is a little bit about my background. I hold a Bachelors in Business Studies from a reputed Indian university. My interest in economics is mostly fuelled by textbooks, online courses and, a few introductory courses at college. I plan to get a job after my master's programme somewhere in the development policy sector. Georgetown University: Pros: DC hence internship opportunities, math camp, more quantitative courses Cons:
  22. Hi guys, first time posting. I got accepted into Johns Hopkins SAIS (Conflict Management) and Georgetown (M.A. in Conflict Resolution from the Department of Government). I'm having some trouble deciding between the programs. GU is giving me a partial scholarship (10K-ish) while SAIS offered no funding for this academic year. The reply deadline for GU is 4/15 and SAIS is 5/01. I'm looking to pursue a policy career in international relations (State Dept. U.N. etc.), and am also concerned about career prospects after grad school. I also understand that SAIS places an emphasis on economics, and I
  23. Hi everyone, I was recently admitted into the following MPP programs and am trying to decide which would be the best choice: Georgetown McCourt U Chicago Harris UCLA Luskin I received a $20,000 scholarship for McCourt and Harris and am specifically interested in environmental policy. Is anyone else debating between the same schools or have any recommendations?
  24. Hi everyone! I was recently admitted to Georgetown's Conflict Resolution program with limited funding and into Seton Hall's Diplomacy with substantially more funding. I know that Walsh is Gtown's hallmark IR program, but does anyone know anything about the CR program reputation or specifically in comparison to SHU? I'm having a hard time justifying the $60,000-ish additional Gtown will cost but it is hard to say no to Georgetown....also came out of undergrad debt free and will have some help (but not a ton) from family with the financial aspect if that makes a difference. Thanks!
  25. Did anyone get the chance to attend McCourt's Admitted Student Days last weekend? I wasn't able to make it due to a work commitment and want to know what others thought of it.
