  1. Hello - has anyone out there applied to the 2012 NATO internship program? We're supposed to hear back about whether or not we've been shortlisted by September. Has anyone done a NATO internship? If so, what's your background?
  2. I'm currently a rising dual degree (B.A. History and B.S. in Political Science) senior at an R1 school, looking to apply to T5 Phd programs in polisci and UChicago's MA in IR next year. T5 - based on US news but also all the other schools at that level in other rankings. The summer after my freshman year, I committed an act of academic dishonesty in a summer class by using a public solution for an online quiz, and was caught. I was brought before a hearing panel, sentenced as guilty, and sanctioned with an F and transcript notation of failing due to dishonesty, one year of probationary s
  3. 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
  4. It’s quite a hard choice for me… Let me first describe a bit about my struggle. I wanna pursue an academic career in the discipline of international relations. My main research interests include international cooperation, IR theory, IOs, and Asia-Pacific. Both schools have very significant pros and cons in my view. ANU is a leading institution in Asia-Pacific studies and very rich in academic resources. However, I tend to complete my doctoral studies (PhD) in the US. As you guy may know, ANU is a base for the English School (emphasize the value of traditional research
  5. So I just got an email with the subject line “an update from the fletcher school” from Dan Birdsall at admissions. It was personalized (addressed to me by name with things he enjoyed reading about in my application). Did anyone else get this/know if there’s a history of these being sent out and what it could mean? Probably just a courtesy thing to applicants while we wait, but I’m curious! Thanks!
  6. Hey folks I've actually got a few of questions under that more general heading I've titled this post with. They're listed and explained a bit below. 1. Best programs to explore that fit my interests Generally speaking, I'm looking to conduct policy-relevant research in the field of environmental security. Research Focus: I'm particularly interested in the relationships between regional environmental change and specific sub-national conflict dynamics related to armed groups, polarization between conflict parties, and national governance in developing states, as well as how enviro
  7. Hi, I'm applying for a Masters in International Relations at The Graduate Institute Geneva (IHEID) 2020-2022 and thought it would be worth starting a thread for others in the middle of the application process, as well. Any words of advice/encouragement/inspiration would be so welcome! Kayla
  8. Hello So title says it all I need different opinions to know what I should eventually improve before applying to grad school Firstly I know that you are not admission officers but I hope that you'll be able to help me/give me directions in terms what I should improve on my application I'll post relevant facts for application so you can actually see the real situation here: Ok so here we go: I'm 21 I went to International school and graduated as a valedictorian in 2017. I spent one academic year in the US where I attended prep boarding school as a scholar of the US Embassy. During that summe
  9. Hi all, First off, thanks for reading my question -- I apologize in advance if the question is too broad, please feel free to ask any follow-up questions. I'm a senior at a top-20 US university, and I am currently doing a triple major (history, political science with an IR concentration, and environmental science). My GPA is 3.75 (ideally I'll pull it up higher over the course of senior year). After taking a lot of classes in various fields, doing a few internships with development-related nonprofits, and beginning to write a thesis in history (it's about Cold War proxy wars, count
  10. So, TL;DR deadline day is coming up for me to choose on Sol Price at SC for my MPA or do my MA IR at NYU. SC will be slightly cheaper, but price isn’t a big factor to me as much as career prospects. From posting over at r/gradschool and a couple other forums it seems like MPA is more in demand and offers more diverse options, but I’m not sure. I want to go into politics longterm, but want to lecture at the uni level in the interim, which would require a PhD. Right now the real hold up is being worried whether or not I’d be able to do a PhD in IR without a masters in the field. Als
  11. Hello all, I need some advice. I am doing a PhD in Cold War History and after finishing my dissertation I intend to seek a second PhD in IR in the United States. My age is under 30 and my background is the following: -BA at a University in Southern Europe. -MA in Contemporary History at the same University (grade is 10/10). -PhD Candidate in Contemporary History at the same University. Archival research in many archives in the US, UK, Brussels and elsewhere. Visiting Researcher with full funding at top UK University. Fulbright Visiting Researcher, sponsored by a top
  12. Hey, so I'm having a hard time choosing between Tufts University MALD, Columbia MIA, and George Washington SPS. I was hoping someone could give me some advice after hearing my reasoning + pros & cons because I feel stressed with the upcoming enrollment deposit deadlines. Thank you in advance~ Context About Me - I have a fellowship that offers me financial assistance, 2 great internships with the government, and a job straight after graduation in the government. So, technically I don't HAVE to be in DC because I have that fellowship that will make me end up in DC for the summers
  13. I got into SAIS but was rejected by their IDEV program. Tufts offered me their Master of Law and Diplomacy program. I also got into the MA program at the Graduate Institute, Geneva. I am leaning toward SAIS because they have a really good China Studies program but the tuition is extremely expensive. I am also a bit worried about their requirement on economic classes since I can't deal with numbers/graphs. My goal is to have a PhD in IR or work in international organizations after my MA. IHEID fits my research interest and has a lot of connections with different organizations, but
  14. Good Afternoon Everyone! Long time lurker here looking to get advice from random other forum members. I have used the results search a lot to help make my list and applied to 10 schools this year, before being accepted to 9. I feel like I have no bad options going forward but am worried about taking on too much debt for an MPP / IR Master's. After graduating, I plan to work for USAID if possible, although these spots are difficult to get, and those positions pay $70-90k for starting salaries for candidates with Master's degrees. I'm open to other jobs as well but want to aim for that at t
  15. Hey guys! I plan to pursue my Masters in International Relations from the UK. I am completely confused about the University that I should accept an offer from, because the data from the internet is really unreliable and inconsistent. Different rankings provide a different status to different universities. So the inconsistency does not really help. My top choices at the moment (in that order) are: 1) LSE 2) SOAS 3) King's College 4)University of Manchester I hold an offer from all the above universities except LSE. I have applied to many other universities fo
  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. I'm deciding on a Masters in international affairs/development studies and would appreciate any advice anyone has. Johns Hopkins seems to be the most prestigious but offered me no funding, and Tufts seems to be of a similar caliber and offered me some funding but is in Boston and I don't have housing there so that would be an additional cost. Does anyone have any insight on the difference between GW and American? They are my most affordable options. I have family in DC so can live rent-free there. Is SAIS at Johns Hopkins worth going into significant debt?
  18. Hi all - hoping for some advice on choosing between SIPA's MIA program and SAIS's MA program. I'm interested in studying human rights and conflict prevention/resolution and I'm hoping to work in an advocacy-based NGO after finishing grad school (though I'm also interested in multilateral work or possibly federal gov work under a different administration). I've visited both schools and overall had great impressions of both, so I'm not sure how to make a final decision. My current pro-con list is below, but I'd love to hear others' thoughts on what I should put the most weight on or if ther
  19. 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
  20. Hi everyone! I am 25 years old, I already hold a BA in communication from an italian uni, and a MSc in political sciences from the London School of Economics (LSE). I am currently working in international organizations such as the UN - it's now been almost 2 years. I would like to study again, most likely next year or in 2020, and I always wanted to go to a top tier US university - Harvard being the top choice. The fact is, my family cannot afford to pay me a Master at Harvard uni at the Kennedy School of Government or the GSAS, and as an international student I would never receive financial a
  21. I am seeking advice for the Master's programs at University of Chicago CIR (Committee on International Relations) and at Columbia University (Political Science). I originally applied to the PhD programs in PoliSci but was transferred to these 1-year MA programs. I received 2 PhD offers from rank 40/50 schools and decided to decline in order to increase my chances of better placement in the next cycle for PhD. My field of interest is International Relations with geographic emphasis on East Asia (esp. China, Korean peninsula) - security studies. So far I have a break-down of the pros/
  22. 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.
  23. Hi there, I'm starting the process of applying to grad schools for the Fall 2019 semester. Looking at all DC metro area based schools for IR/ Foreign Policy/ Security related programs. Ideally would be going to American or GW. Wondering how much a few things factor into your application when applying. I'm applying directly out of undergrad decent enough grades (3.3), I haven't taken the GRE yet, I have stunning recommendations, and Teaching assistant (in a related course) experience. The one thing I'm hoping will really set my application apart from other direct from undergrad appl
  24. Hi! I got accepted to the following programs (all one year) and I can't decide! 1. Master of Arts (MA), The Fletcher School, Tufts University 2. Master of International Public Policy (MIPP), SAIS, Johns Hopkins University 3. Master of Advanced Studies in International Affairs (MAS-IA), GPS, UCSD 4. MSc International Strategy and Diplomacy, LSE My interests are IR, strategy, and security. When I consider location, I think UCSD is attractive but Fletcher and SAIS network are strong! LSE also has a very good program. I don't have to worry about scholarships becau
  25. 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.
