  1. Hi all, I have recently been admitted to three programs: Georgetown's MA in Conflict Resolution, Boston University's MAIA in Diplomacy, and LSE's MSc in Conflict Studies. I cannot for the life of me decide which school would be the best fit, so I'm hoping that someone here has either attended one of these schools or can offer insight into which program sounds the most compelling. Here is what I know so far: Georgetown Tuition: ~ $50k USD per year for a 2 year program Great career centre/job prospects post-grad Perfectly located for internships/careers in diplomacy or foreign service Beautiful campus Great reputation in the US Poli Sci/Government circle Very high cost of living Don't know a single person in Washington High crime rate Boston University Tuition: ~$45k USD per year for a 2 year program Offers a summer exchange program for CR students in Geneva & London Prof whose work I have followed for ages teaches a class in my department Boyfriend and best friend from uni both live here (support network + potential roommates) From what I can tell, great student-faculty outreach Very high cost of living Not as internationally acclaimed as the other 2 schools LSE Tuition: £20,904 for 1 year program (roughly $29,176 USD - this is a HUGE draw of this program, as I will be financing my own graduate degree) Great international reputation, would likely open many career doors Uni is in the centre of an exciting city Well located for careers in government/foreign service Insane cost of living From what I've gathered so far, their academics are not as strong as Georgetown Only a 1 year program, so not as much time to network/study/perform research Hands-off teaching style - very little in class time, grades based off one final exam at the end of term Any guidance you can offer on any of the 3 schools would be very much appreciated. HELP ME MAKE THIS IMPOSSIBLE DECISION!
  2. Hey guys! So I've been admitted to Georgetown's MPP program, among others, so I'm sort of in the decision-making process right now. I was wondering if anyone here had a better feel for how well the evening program fits with a full time, especially one in and around Capitol Hill? I know that Georgetown is a pain to get to, but I'd hate for that to be the reason it isn't doable. Are classes late enough that this is not an issue? Any help would be appreciated! Thanks.
  3. Hi all, I've been researching Georgetown programs and although I know the emphasis for McCourt vs SFS is different I'm wondering if both are equally as good and offer as many opportunities. I am interested in a program that joins together Public Policy and International Affairs. I want to learn about both domestic and international issues and how they meet and influence each other. I'm interested in some quantitative training while also having freedom to learn about international law, human rights, diplomacy, and history. Which program do you think is best and how do they compare? I'd also appreciate any recommendations of any other programs that meet the criteria. Thanks EDIT: I'm mainly looking at the Master of International Development Policy and the Master of Science in Foreign Service (MSFS)
