Undergrad: George Washington University GPA: 3.81 Experience and leadership: assistant teacher at pre school, gymnastics coach, summer camp counselor, NSSLHA member and leadership role, division 1 gymnastics team at GW, NCAA all-American scholastic team GRE: 149 V 147 Q, writing i did not get back yet I would like to think my letters are strong as well as my personal statements. I know being a student-athlete looks great and my GPA. I do have a reco

  3. I've recently been admitting to GWU and Colorado School of Public Health for Global Environmental Health. I'm receiving my BS in Environmental Science with a concentration in Public Health. I have had 2 years of undergraduate research in a lab. I'd just like to get some thoughts and opinions on what each school is like and which would be a better option? Thank you!
  4. I am admitted to GWU Elliot International Development Studies (with $16k annual fellowship) and JHU SAIS Intl. Development. I am completing undergrad in Business Economics (some econometric content also) from an European Research University this Summer, I have some months of intern experience and currently part time employed in university language center. From different sources I understand that JHU SAIS Intl. Development curriculum has lot of economics and quantitative content and quite popular among recruiters. Can anybody guide me the different aspects of joining
  5. Hello! If you have been accepted to George Washington University please message me! Im trying to find more people who are thinking about going or who have officially accepted their acceptance to talk about housing , school, and pros/cons and what not! Congrats to everyone on their acceptances! what a crazy roller coaster it has been!
  6. I heard it really does not matter where you receive your Masters from. I dont know how true this is though. However, right now I am struggling on my decision of where I would like to go. I received a decision early on from GW, which I was/am excited about - but living in D.C. is super expensive. I was going to make it work because it was my only option! Until recently, I was moved off the wait-list at NY Med and Monmouth. Monmouth would be the cheapest since I can commute, however it is in pre-accreditation until 2019 so I am not sure what that means for me as a student and when I graduate whe
  7. Hello everyone, I have been accepted into Elliott's Security Policy program with 14k a year funding and Korbel's International Studies program with 10k. I am having trouble deciding which one would be the best decision. love the program at Korbel. It is extremely flexible and would allow me to take more classes overall but particularly more skills courses. The skills courses at Korbel are more relevant to overal future careers (project management, data analysis, regulatory policies, etc). I also really like the faculty and the research being done at their centers mirror my exact in
  8. Hi All, I've been accepted to NYU Wagner for the MPA and into GW's MPA program at the Trachtenberg School. My concern is, would Wagner be just as good as GW's program? I've heard that Wagner is very focused on domestic policy vs. international, which is my interest. At Wagner I would pursue the international specialization, how strong is it? This is one of my main concern. The reason I am leaning very heavily towards NYU is because my family is there and I could live at home, which would mean being able to do school full-time (finish in 2 years) and save living costs. It is also po
  9. Hi I am currently trying to decide between 2, potentially 3 MS chem programs. I have offers from GWU (w/ fellowship), SDSU, and UBC (conditional offer). I think the UBC offer is less likely as it is contingent on me confirming a lab supervisor prior to May 31 and I have not had any luck so far. I'm currently about to graduate from UCSD where I have had some research experience. I am mostly choosing between GWU MS in Environmental and Green Chemistry and SDSU for MS Chemistry. I want to pursue environmental chemistry work in the future but mostly, I want to really focus on research, and I
  10. Hi guys! I'm having a really hard time deciding between Purdue, GWU, and Penn State. If there are any graduate students who are in these programs or simply if you have any insight I would greatly appreciate it! Purdue and Penn State are ranked super well but I'm mainly worried about the surrounding areas being too rural and then GWU sounds great but is definitely the most expensive option. Please help me decide, thanks!!
  11. Basically the title. I want to work in health policy, I think in government, and I'm just wondering which will give me the best place to start a career from. I got into the MPH program at George Washington in DC, and the MPP program at CMU with 50% tuition (technically the master of science of healthcare policy and management). is there going to be a career difference between the two? I would imagine an MPH gives you more lateral movement within public health, and the MPP gives you the same in the policy sphere.
  12. I am having trouble deciding between NYU and George Washington University for grad school. At NYU I would be studying International Relations at GSAS while at GW I would get an M.A. in international Affairs with a concentration in international development. My hope after obtaining my masters is to work for an NGO that focuses on trade and development and eventually go back to get a doctorate in International relations, focusing on trade, development, and economic relations. I prefer D.C. as a city in general as it is much nicer in my opinion, but I don’t mind New York either. I understand that
  13. Hello, I want to work at UN/ government related positions after studying international relations/affairs or security. I would greatly appreciate it if I could get help choosing an appropriate school considering employment rate, prestige, and network. Thank you all very much in advance! Schools I got accepted into: 1) Fletcher (MALD) 2) GWU-ESIA (International Affairs) 3) DU - Josef Korbel (International Security/Relations) - 30k scholarship 4) Penn State - SIA (International Affairs)-25k scholarship
  14. Hello, I applied to the MPH program with a concentration of Health Promotion at George Washington University (GWU). I haven't heard back from them and the wait is giving me so much anxiety! Has someone already heard back from GWU? If so, how long did it take for them to review your app and send you a decision via email from the time your application was seen as "complete."
  15. 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.
  16. I took the GRE for the first time today and came out with a 160 V and 146 Q. I believe I did decently on the essays although I don't know for sure yet. I'm really interested in getting into Johns Hopkins SAIS MA in DC program for Fall 2018. Also interested in GWU Elliott School of International Affairs and UC San Diego GPS. Curious if y'all think my scores warrant a re-take? I tried to give myself plenty of time before apps for next year opened up. My undergrad was in Business/Political Economy with 3.5 GPA, and I have about 3 years of work experience between Capitol Hill, State Departmen
  17. I have been accepted into the M.A. Security Policy Studies Program at ESIA. I would like to know a couple of things from such a helpful forum: Career What are the career experience of international students after completing the SPS program. Such a degree would open door to many federal offices, although, will the status of a non-national affect my long term plans to work in the United States? Moreover, I have already completed my masters in Political Science and International Relations and I am planning for a second masters at ESIA, would that help in anyway getting a part-time job while
  18. Hi all, I'm lucky enough to have received a half tuition scholarship from USC, and a 2/3 tuition scholarship from GWU. No mention of living stipends or other assistantships. Including my scholarships, tuition alone would cost me roughly 40K at USC, and 20K at GWU. For what I want to do, the schools are roughly even. But the increased $$$ at GWU definitely has me leaning in their direction, and it seems like most students are able to find meaningful part time/full time employment to offset costs. I did also get into University of Chicago but with a pretty measly scholarship
  19. Hello, I would appreciate thoughts regarding graduate school decisions/comments from people in the same boat. Interested in environmental policy and potentially private sector consulting or NGO work. Accepted to: George Washington University - Environmental Resource Policy, Trachtenberg School ($10k/year fellowship) Still waiting on a decision from UCSB Bren MESM. Obviously this could all be for nothing depending on decision from Bren, but going into this process I regarded UCSB Bren as my #1 choice due to program respect in the environmental field, location (Santa Barbar
  20. Anybody heard from the GWU-GPP Partnership Program? I've been waitlisted and it seems like several of us are waitlisted based on the Results page.
  21. I recently submitted my app to GWU (like two weeks ago) and they require you to submit unofficial transcripts from any transfer and study abroad credits. Unfortunately, where I studied abroad wouldn't let you download an unofficial transcript and I had to request for an official one to be delivered by international courier. I'm worried that it will make it way after the deadline (deadline is Jan 7 for funding, and transcripts are coming from Egypt). Will this be an issue at all or will it'll be acceptable? Of course the office says theyre swamped so won't answer calls or emails.
  22. Which school has a better MPH program, George Washington University or Boston University? Specifically which school has better Community Health and Global Health programs? Thanks!
  23. Hi everyone! I am Sheila and I am 23 years old. I am moving to Washington DC (or nearby neighborhoods) in the mid-August to attend GWU as an international student. Looking for 1-4 roommates to find and share decent apartment in good neighborhood.I am particularly interested in following areas: Foggy Bottom, Crystal City, Pentagon City, Courthouse, Rosslyn, Adams Morgan, Dupont Circle, Georgetown. My budget is about 800 USD for a separate/shared room. About myself: open-minded, optimistic, calm person who respects other people's privacy and enjoys good company. Graduate studen
  24. Greetings, I am planning on applying to a MS in Biostatistics in the Washington D.C. area for next fall and was wondering if anybody here can give me any pointers/advice on which school would be better for this specific program, George Washington U. or Georgetown? Unfortunately, I have not been able to find too much discussion about the biostatistics programs at these schools and I would like to know about their relative strengths and weaknesses. I am going on the assumption that both GWU and Gtown are going to be relatively equal in terms of my chances of getting in so my main crite
  25. 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,
