  1. Hello, I'd stared this forum for anyone applying to Uchicago Harris for Fall 2022.
  2. Has anyone heard anything from NYU Wagner? MPA fall 2021 applicant here. I assume they’re going to stick to their March 1st deadline.
  3. Hello, hive mind! I wanted to know the pros and cons of going for a lesser known STEM program (UC Berkeley Master's in Development Practice) v/s a better known non-STEM MPP/MPA (e.g. Harris, SIPA, etc.). I'm not eligible for most scholarships, and the chances of receiving financial aid from either school are quite slim. STEM OPT is useful for international students who could potentially accelerate their career by working with reputed organisations in the States for a few years - and help in paying off education loans a lot sooner (compared to working in my home country post-Master's). However,
  4. Hello all, I was fortunate enough to get into HKS's MPA/ID program with zero funding. I am a 28 year old India male. I have a bachelors in engineering, have worked for a year in a consulting firm, a year in grassroot rural development and for 3 years at J-PAL. I was nominated for the World Bank Joint Japan Scholarship for MPA/ID but I did not apply for it as I didn't think I would be admitted (idiotic, I know!). Other than MPA/ID I applied for Paris School of Economics for both their APE and PPD programs but the results are pending. I am also fortunate enough to be in a situation wh
  5. 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 s
  6. Anyone applying to any masters in Europe this upcoming cycle? I thought we could discuss it here! I’m applying to Science Po and IHEID.
  7. So I've never posted on such a forum before so I'm sorry if some of the language is wrong. I am an undergraduate at UT Austin, graduating in December and stuck between opting for a masters or a PhD. Ideally I would love to do a PhD but those are tougher to get into so I was hoping to lay out my stats and get some honest opinions. I have plenty of research experience including a research assistant internship, research with two professors and two of my own research projects. I have also presented this research at three conferences and one those was the MPSA. I also have alot of exper
  8. Hi, I have been admitted to CMU's MSPPM Pittsburgh track. I understand that it is a Masters in Science degree. However, I could not find any written material saying MSPPM is a STEM affiliated degree and the graduates are eligible for OPT extension. I absolutely love the program and everything it offers. But I really need to know if I will be eligible for the OPT extension post graduation. Can someone please clarify this? Thanks
  9. Hi everyone, I have been accepted to Denver's Josef Korbel and the Elliott school at GWU both with some funding, receiving 10k a year from Korbel and 14k a year from Elliott. I have decided that Korbel is my top choice but it is extremely expensive. Can anyone offer advice on how to leverage more funding from Elliott or how to request more aid generally? With 10k a year, Denver would cost $86K while Elliott would only cost $45k. I know Denver is a bit cheaper than DC, but not enough to cover that price difference. I worry about debt as IR is not a lucrative field but the program at Ko
  10. So I have decided I want to apply to an MPP or MPA program but I have to admit that I'm confused on where to apply. I want to work at a place like the urban institute, or another think tank but I'm not sure what schools can lead me to that path. Currently I'm working with AmeriCorps VISTA and living in the Midwest, so I'm looking at a number of school in my area and schools that give large tuition cuts to AmeriCorps alums, so places like Minnesota, Wisconsin, Brandeis, and Duke. My big question is... will it be incredibly difficult to land a job at a place like Urban (or a job in DC) if
  11. Hello everyone! I wanted to start a thread to see if there are any other applicants who applied to, or have heard back from, Fordham's IPED program. I know it is one of the smaller programs, but it also provides many funding opportunities and has some unique partnerships and career trajectories.
  12. 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
  13. Anyone still haven't heard back from U of M? I knew my chances were slim, but I still haven't received anything from the school. It seems that the first rounds are already over (Feb. 22-23ish). Any ideas?
  14. For Carnegie Mellon's MSPPM program, the instructions state "The résumé MUST be current and include all part time and full time work experience, the dates of when the employment began and ended and a brief description of your responsibilities under the title of the position. Click here for an example of a résumé." On a resume, I usually only include the pertinent details (why does it matter if I worked for a pizzeria), but CMU also states in the same section "Submission of false or plagiarized material as part of the application for admission may result in automatic denial of admission to
  15. What role does school prestige play in the hiring process for security related jobs in in federal government, in multi lateral organizations, and with international relief organizations (I know that for capital hill and the public sector, it has significant influence)? I have narrowed my my options down to Georgetown SSP unfunded (70k in tuition + living expenses), and a west coast “public ivy” state flagship university (with a fellowship that covers tuition, and includes a full living stipend). The state school is not UCB, or UCSD, but I do not want to be more specific than that.
  16. I have been admitted into Georgetown SSP, however I did not receive any funding. The program, due to less required credits, is about 30k less than Georgetown MSFS. However 70k for tuition over two years is still difficult to swallow. For those familiar with similar programs (including SAIS, HKS, Fletcher, GWU, etc.), what are the best external funding sources available to students in their second year? I have also heard of people gaining employment with a federal agency in their first year, and taking advantage of programs that pay for your remaining year in exchang
  17. Given the uncertainty surrounding Public Service Loan Forgiveness (PSLF), I would consider banking on loan forgiveness while deciding on a graduate program, to be not the wisest of decisions. Especially because many jobs that you would traditionally associate with the federal government, are now being outsourced to contractors. However, out of curiosity, do the following organizations qualify one under PSLF, given the current guidelines? NATO? The U.N.? World Bank?
  18. Anyone have thoughts on making funding-based decisions? I've been accepted to my top two schools with super generous funding from each and I'm doing all that I can to decide between the two of them. Both have offered me full funding but in very different forms. Thoughts on whether a primarily scholarship based offer is better than a TAship-based offer (aside from the obvious "I'd have to work for my money at one")? Both are primarily professionally-focused, coursework based MA programs. School 1 offered me ~$18,000 over the two years in straight funding, $5,000 in my second year for a gua
  19. Hello world I tried using my google skills to find more on these two schools' policy programs -- about post graduation career prospects for some international student who does policy from these schools but I did not have much luck. Does anyone know how good these programs are and how well they are regarded? Especially concerned because going to these schools will put me in the same area where graduates of SIPA and Wagner will lurk for jobs , and I'm concerned that these schools might not be thought of as highly or might not provide the same scope you know.
