  1. Hey everyone, I'm new to this forum and have never posted in places like this before so I apologise in advance if this is the wrong place for my post. I'm a Canadian student at an okay university in Canada. I would like to pursue a master's degree in IR/global politics/public policy or something along those lines. Ideally, I would like to study in Europe, preferably at LSE. I am also open to applying to other schools like Sciences Po, King's College, and maybe even the Graduate Institute in Switzerland. I have a year of school left and my cumulative GPA is a tad bit under 3.4 but I am hoping my extracurriculars can compensate for this. I am majoring in political science and have taken very basic courses in economics and quantitative research methods. I speak three Asian languages (one of them fluently), French, and English. Extracurricular Activities: -wrote articles for online international relations publications -served as a Regional Director for an international affairs publication -started an IR publication at my uni -served as president of a major political club -did model UN -currently a student mentor -currently an advisor at a think tank -volunteer at a legal research centre Work Experience: -I have roughly 2 years of work experience -interned on programs, policy, and community engagement for a royal charity -interned at the federal foreign affairs ministry in the international trade section helping businesses export and in the FDI team I don't intend to study beyond a master's degree and plan to work in government for some years and then maybe and international org like the UN or in government relations for a company. I was wondering if I could get some honest input on what my chances could be based on your experience or based on the experiences of people you know. Open to hearing any advice/suggestions you have and looking forward to hearing your experiences! Thanks!
  2. Hey y'all, I am ecstatic after receiving acceptances from both of these schools. After evacuating from the Peace Corps, I worried that I would miss the application deadlines and be stuck in limbo but both schools really worked with me to submit a completed application before the deadline. Nonetheless, now I face a tough decision. Ideally, following graduate school, I aspire for a career in international conflict mediation specifically in the Middle East or Southeast Asia. As of right now, it would be only slightly more to attend Seton Hall and the proximity to NYC bolsters the overall attractiveness of attending Seton Hall. That being said, it seems that Maxwell is overall more connected throughout DC and in the international affairs world, so I am at an impasse. Any feedback on these schools would be greatly appreciated!
  3. Hi guys, I have been accepted to the MA program at Johns Hopkins SAIS, the MIA program at UCSD School of Global Policy and Strategy and the MGA program at Munk School of Global Affairs. I have read tons of info about these programs and I have attended the Open House events at SAIS and UCSD. However, I am still undecided. What do you think is the best program in terms of employability and education considering that I am an international student who wants to find a job in North America? My area of specialization is international economics and I would like to work in consulting/think-tanks/business/banks. Thanks!!
  4. Did anyone apply to the double MA in journalism and international affairs at Sciences Po, Paris this year or in previous years? If someone did apply or has attended, could you comment on your application experience/subsequent studies? On a general note, how are foreign journalism degrees looked upon if one wished to find a job in the United States or elsewhere upon graduation - and does it hold a light to "top" American programs such as Columbia, Berkeley, etc.? Thanks in advance!
  5. I am trying to gauge admissions outcomes for the upcoming admissions cycle for MA programs in international development and affairs. If you could, please include the following information in your response: GPA: GRE (Verbal/Math/Writing) Applied: Accepted: Rejected: Waitlist: description of relevant work experience and other factors: Thank you!
  6. Hi all! I got admitted conditionally to Columbia SIPA and Tufts Fletcher. I have to take an undergraduate level Principles of Economics class (or Principles of Microeconomics and Principles of Macroeconomics classes) before enrolling, since I lack in quant background. I have tried to find classes here in my country (in Southeast Asia), but to no avail. I think the most viable option for me is online classes provided by US universities. Can anybody recommend good online economics classes that are affordable? So far the classes I've found cost over 1 thousand dollar! Thanks for your help!
