  1. Hi everyone! This is my first post (and an international student), so bear with me if my English is a bit strange... Anyways, I am hoping to get some thoughts on the two grad programs I was luckily admitted to! I am a Japanese undergraduate student graduating March 2022, who studied liberal arts (not sure if I can call this a field haha) in Japan. My career plan is to become a practitioner in the field of conflict resolution, countering violent extremism, and peacebuilding, thus decided to pursue a graduate degree that enables me to gain the necessary knowledge and experience (e.g., project design, management, m&e, and a preferably third language too) for such a profession. Much to my luck, I got offers from GW Elliott IDS (have to self-fund 10k/year), and Fletcher MALD (self-fund 16k/year), and am currently leaning towards going to Elliott, for its location in DC as well as its lower cost compared to Fletcher. However, looking into the Gradcafe forum, I see lots of positive posts (negatives posts equally) about the MALD, and not so much on Elliott IDS, so I am reconsidering once again... If I summarize my thoughts, it would be like this: Elliott: DC location (thus better connection?), cheaper option, wider varieties of fields I can study Fletcher: Better recognition and reputation? (not sure about this...), Fletcher Mafia, more rigorous? (again, I'm not sure about this too), prestige in the IR community? Are my image of both schools correct? Could anyone give me more insight on the two programs??
  2. 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 SAIS or Elliot?? Financing graduate study at SAIS (more than $75k per year) is definitely stressing (although I can manage with pain). Is Elliot at par as far as curriculum is concerned and is as popular as SAIS?
