  1. As the application season has begun, I felt we should have a thread for prospective applicants for MIA/MPA and other Graduate programs at SIPA (commencing in Fall 2021). We can discuss application related stuff and other other relevant topics here.
  2. Decided to start a thread for those of us applying to Canadian international affairs programs this fall/winter. Post stats, advice, or anything related to this topic!
  3. Hey everyone, I have been admitted into the Graduate school of public and international affairs at Uottawa, and the Masters in Public Policy and Public Administration at Carleton University. I am not exactly sure which school offers better job placement (heard carleton might be stronger with COOP), and also how reputation plays a factor. I personally am interested in International Affairs, but after hearing that Uottawa has a french requirement for one of its courses and that only the top 20% of the class gets a COOP placement, it has really made me rethink what is the best choice moving
  4. Hello! Haven't seen any other threads about Canadian applicants for international affairs grad programs. I have applied to Balsillie (BSIA) PhD and am waiting to hear back!
  5. Hello everyone, I have to applied to international affairs schools and have been admitted to SAIS, Fletcher, Syracuse-Maxwell and GPS at UCSD. Academically I prefer 1) SAIS 2) Fletcher 3) Maxwell and finally UCSD, since I consider it is too far away from the cities I want to be closed to like Boston, NYC and DC. However, I am an international student from argentina and my funding options are limited. I have been granted a 54 k scholarship at SAIS, 64k at Fletcher and full tuition at Maxwell and UCSD. Enrolling in SAIS or Fletcher would imply taking student debt for at least
  6. Hi all, I've been accepted to the MSc in Global Affairs at the SPS in NYU. Super excited and happy when I got the offer. I love NY and living there has been a dream of mine so I'm very inclined to accept the offer. My goal is also to work in policy analysis and/or counter-terrorism/violent extremism in a think tank, NGO, international organization etc. But my concerns are: 1) the cost: I'll have to take a loan of $80k-100k to cover tuition, living expenses + everything. BIG deal. 2) I'd want to stay in the US to work. What would my chances be to find work in NY or anywhere in the US
  7. Can anyone help out with a qualitative comparison of the two programmes? I've been accepted to both, but I know for sure that I will have to take up a substantial student loan in order to study at Fletcher. I was wondering if it would be worth it, or if I could gain a similar/better experience and job opportunities (minus a loan) at the Graduate Institute, Geneva? Also was wondering how much branding matters. Everyone around me seems to think that Fletcher is quite the name to have tagged to your CV, but don't seem to really think similarly about the Graduate Institute. Would love to hear some
  8. Starting a thread for those hearing/waiting to hear back as it seems decisions are starting to roll in.
  9. Hi everyone, I'm having a lot of difficulty deciding between the Master of Arts Globalization and International Development (SIDGS) and Master of Arts Public and International Affairs (GSPIA) at uOttawa. SIDGS has offered me a far greater scholarship while GSPIA has offered me a scholarship, but much lower. Should I be basing my decision on scholarship? I haven't done as much research into SIDGS as I'd have liked to, but on the surface level, I'm having difficulties identifying the differences between what SIDGS and GSPIA offer (aside from GSPIA's faculty and internship program, I know t
  10. Hello, I was looking around for information on these two fellowships and didn't see any threads for this year. I will be super busy from July to September so I thought I might as well get started early. Here are links to previous year's threads: 2018-2019 2017-2019
  11. I couldn't find a thread about GSPIA Fall 2019, so I figured I would start one.
  12. Currently admitted/ prospective or alumni of Evans, what has been your impression of Evans for MPA degree? The corses, career opportunities? I am highly interested in policy making/analysis and I feel like Seattle is not an ideal place for that. So who reputed and prestigious is Evans name, would it help me in my job hunt? Please let me know about your impression and experiences in Evans. I have to decided between GPS, Harris (15k fuding ) and Evans and it is increasingly getting stressful! Thank you
  13. Hi all, who's going to Bolgona/DC this fall? What are your impressions on the program? My situation: US student, 4 years out from undergrad. €50,000 scholarship from SAIS Bologna campus for two years (MAIA). 2 years Fulbright ETA, short term PC service, internships at UN & Goethe Institut. GPA 3.8, GRE V 162/Q 158/W 5.5. Fluent in German/French, working knowledge Russian/Italian. Age 25. Did not have LOR's in place by the deadline last cycle to ship out a full array of applications. Rejected by LSE/pre-accepted to College of Europe. Uncertain if it's better to tak
  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. Hello everyone! I'm new here :) I signed up to check if there's anyone out there who applied for the 2018 NATO internship program. I applied in May and still haven't heard back. I hold a Master degree form LSE in London, and multiple internship experiences with the UN in NYC and with the European Commission in Brussels (Blue Book Traineeship). I'm now interning at OSCE Mission in Kosovo, in Pristina, and I will be here for the next 6 months. NATO recruiterds dn't know I am in Kosovo, because at the time of the application I didn't have the internship offer yet. I have close friends intern
  16. I’ve been struggling for weeks with the best choice, and would love some input. Choosing between: SIPA (68k), SAIS Europe (45k), ESIA (42.5k), MSFS (59k), SIS (still waiting on funding info) Criteria: alumni network, abundance of internship opportunities, cohort atmosphere, career services, location (preference for big cities) I’m also concerned about debt. After my savings I’m facing a loan somewhere between 40k and 60k depending on the school. How much debt is good debt for a MA in IR? While I would like to work in non-profit, I know it’s not finanacially smart. Ther
  17. Hey all, I'm a current graduate student at Carleton University reading for an MA in international affairs (NPSIA). I'm enjoying the content of my studies immensely, but have more or less lost interest in leveraging my degree to work for the public service upon graduation. As NPSIA has a strong focus on placing students within the government, I realize that more schooling will likely be necessary to find employment elsewhere. I've been playing with the idea of pursuing a career in conflict/political journalism for some time now, and have heard good things about the Munk School's Fel
  18. I'm having a very hard time deciding where to study in Europe next year in international affairs. I've been accepted to Cambridge, LSE, Oxford, and Sciences Po but funding, course structure and reputation are weighing on me. I have a BA in International Development and 2 years of relevant work experience (co-op) in foreign policy. After graduate school, I would like to eventually work for the UN, an international organization or the foreign affairs department. Here are my initial thoughts: LSE - MSc IR: no funding, 1 full year, foundational course in IR + courses + 10,000 word dissertatio
  19. 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
  20. So, Fletcher School at Tufts University has been my dream school for some time now. I got admitted into MALD and want to specialise in Development Economics but also take a few classes in Social Entreprenurship and International Political Economy. The flexibility of the MALD degree allows me to do that. I am particularly drawn to the cross registration option with Harvard and would love to take Social Entrepreneurship classes at Harvard Business School and also build some contacts. My problem is funding. I have received funding of $24k for two years (12k per year) from Fletcher. Still, th
  21. Hey yall- I'm starting this thread for those applying to NPSIA for 2018. Feel free to post any questions or comments here. And as offers roll out too dont be afraid to share your acceptance or decline comments here Just curious, in regards to the MA, are people limiting their statement of intent to a certain number of words? is it research focused (with citations and all) even if you aren't planning on doing the thesis or MRP? The instructions on the website are quite vague, so i'm curious what people are doing (especially word count wise).
  22. 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
  23. Hi guys, I'm graduating May 2019 from a U.S university, and I'm already considering my options for graduate school. I want to live in another country to gain more international experience and learn another language. What are the best MA programs in Europe? (Taught in English) I'm already considering The Graduate Institute at Geneva and Science Po.
  24. I am having a very diffiecult time deciding betweent uoft MGA and graduate institute geneva (iheid) for international development major. In terms of job prospects, name value and quality of education, does anyone have insight?
  25. Hello, With the April 15th deadline for decision at GW fast approaching, I have been facing a lot of stress in deciding between two programs for IR. I was accepted into the IR and Latin America and Hemispheric Studies program at the elliot school and also received admission to Uchicago's Committee on International Relations. I was able to attend an online admitted student session for the Elliot School in addition to a campus visit day last summer- I came away from both of these events feeling very encouraged and amazed by the vast resources and opportunities Elliot has to offer, and have
