  1. Hey everybody,I had applied to a few schools across Europe for my master's Degree and have received offers from the following schools in the aforementioned disciplines. Master's in International Security @ Paris School of International Affairs, Sciences Po (Awaiting Scholarship Information) Master's in International Affairs @ Hertie School Of Governance, Berlin (Scholarship request rejected) I would really appreciate if you guys can provide my some inputs/insight that can help me make an informed decision at the earliest.
  2. I have been accepted into four schools thus far (Korbel, Pardee, Elliott, and SIS...but threw SIS out of the running), and need different perspectives on what I should be looking for in these masters programs. Assume money is not a major factor. Have yet to hear back from Fletcher, SAIS, SIPA, and SFS. So far I have been mapping out which classes I would be taking under the respective programs, and I am quite satisfied with each of the three. The things I am looking for in a program are: Jobs with security clearance in the area Dual concentration abilities Russian Language Boren Scholarship awardee history Curriculum is policy/ case oriented rather than theoretical Professors are practitioners in their field Successful placement rate into the Intelligence Community What else should I take into consideration? Does anyone have information to offer? I have spoken with students, alumni, and professors who all love their respective schools. Thanks in advance for all those who reply. Feel free to message me if necessary. -Frosty
  3. I completed my undergraduate program at Fordham University in Spring 2016. I am currently living and working in Cairo, and consequently, I am having trouble attaining my undergrad transcript in time for the Science Po application deadline on January 9th. Since it is incredibly difficult to receive mail from the United States in Egypt, my university is mailing a physical copy of my transcript from New York City to my family's home in California. My family will then scan the transcript and email it to me. The whole process will likely not be complete until after the deadline. I have contacted Science Po about this issue, but I have yet to receive a response. Does anyone have any insight into Science Po's policies and practices or advice regarding this issue? I am terrified that my application will not be considered due to circumstances that are largely beyond my control. Thanks! Jacqueline
  4. Hello, So now I am finishing my master degree in international relations, and specializing in international security (in France). For my thesis, I would like to concentrate on something involving cyber-security, cyber-war and cyber-defense, in the United States. Does anyone have any opinions as to how to define the question? How to extract a problematic to work on? I would really appreciate any suggestions as I seem to be totally blocked. Best regards, Kaz
  5. I've been accepted to the MA National Security & Foreign policy program at American University and the MA International Security program at the Josef Korbel School. I've been trying to choose between the two and it has proven to be a very difficult process. I will be relying on loans to pay tuition, so money is serious concern. I want a program that is geared toward policy development and encourages the 'think tank' approach. Help!
  6. Hey Guys, What a wonderful time to be alive! Yet there are many decisions to be made! I have been offered admission by three MA programs: SAIS Washington DC; Fletcher; American University; Georgetown's Security Studies program—though I will hear from them next week, I feel it is in the bag. My predicament is the following. I am a non-American student whose main areas of interest are international relations and international security. I want to devote my life to academia (preferably based at the USA) but that requires a top-notch PhD. The programs I am most interested in are incidentally the most selective: Columbia, Harvard, Princeton, Chicago and Yale. My question for Grad Café’s devoted followers is the following: Which of the MA programs I mentioned above would best prepare me for the PhDs admissions I mentioned beneath? By now, I have realized that American admission committee’s do not focus exclusively on one item on the applicant’s CV. But since I want to walk the road towards tenure, my academic credentials will carry significant weight both for my PhD admission and my career. I might be too picky, but I am troubled with the following observations: - SAIS might be considered too policy- or economics-centered. - I have the feeling that American U is sometimes held as a step beneath or not “prestigious enough”. - Does Georgetown’s Security Studies program carry the same reputation as the MSFS/Foreign Service? What do you guys think? Thank you
