  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 hop
  2. I’m applying to grad school in the near future and have been contemplating either getting a MPP, MPA, or an IR degree. I’m leaning towards an MPP but want to make sure my choice moves my career towards a foreign policy role at a think tank. From my research, it seems like IR delves into the theoretical side of foreign policy, MPP into the practical side of policy formulation and MPA into the practical side policy implementation and review. Is this a fair assessment? Thanks!!
  3. I was just admitted to the two programs for an MA in International Relations. I will be concentrating in International development at both programs. If money was not an issue, I would attend SAIS without a question. However, including scholarships, tuition cost at Syracuse Maxwell is $34k while SAIS is $80k. Just curious on people's thoughts how much more I should value a SAIS education and resources(Career services, alumni, etc) over Maxwell. Also, the end goal is to get a job in International Development. How much more does a SAIS degree jump off the page than Maxwell?
  4. Hey guys!! ? I think it is about time to start this year's application thread. I'm sure many of you have already started the application process and some are finished. I hope this thread will help you in ways it can and give you as much info on schools as possible. I am applying for the third time (due to financial reasons could never accept the offers), you know what they say third is the charm. Personally i will be applying for MA in International Relations/Affairs with concentrations in Development and Human Rights. Best of luck to all of you and hopefully thi
  5. Im am looking at IR and policy policy masters and looking to work as a government analyst, private sector (consulting or political risk) or at an NGO. I eventually want to earn a policy oriented or political science PHD 5 to 10 years down the road. I was accepted to Pittsburgh (GSPIA, MIPA security and intelligence), Denver (Korbel, MIS), and UCSD (GPS, MPP). My aid situation is as follows: DU-Korbel 30k (15k a year but still the most expensive) Pitt-GSPIA 28k (14k a year and the cheapest school
  6. 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
  7. From what I've researched online this question seems to be popular so I thought should see what everyone thinks. I applied for the 2019 fall semester and am still waiting to hear back from SAIS, SIPA, and MSFS but I was recently accepted into both the Elliott School's MA program of International Affairs as well as SIS's MA in International Affairs: Comparative and Regional Studies program. I received a decent funding package from the Elliott School but am still waiting to hear back on funding from SIS. I wanted to reach out to everyone here and get your thoughts about either school. I've s
  8. Hey Guys, I wanted to get your opinion on university ranking systems. For this I am specifically talking about the International Relations field. The two main ranking systems that I am talking about are those complied by Foreign Policy Magazine, "The Best International Relations Schools in the World", and US News and their list of the top political science schools. (Links at the end). While the rankings do have some similarities, like the obvious choices at the top, there are some major differences. Mainly the placement of the DC based schools at the top of the Foreign Policy list,
  9. Hey y'all, so I guess the name says it all, in your opinion what schools are the best in the IR sub-field? And any idea on more middle-tier programs and schools? Thanks!

  11. I've been admitted to Ottawa's GSPIA and Waterloo's Masters of Public Service Program and I feel lost because, on one hand, all my profs are telling me to pursue Ottawa, but the open house at Waterloo MPS was great. The director of the Waterloo MPS was a really nice guy and I had the feeling that engagement with the student body at Waterloo is massive compared to Ottawa. Ottawa, on the other hand, has better co-op job board. The LinkedIn searches gave me the same impression that uOttawa's graduates have a better federal government job compared to the MPS program. That said, the administration
  12. Hi everyone, Quick question about the two programs that Georgetown University School of Foreign Service has, the Security Studies Program and the Master of Science in Foreign Service. Does anyone know if one is better than the other in terms of acceptance rate, job prospects and earnings, academic, etc? I saw online that MSFS acceptance rate is 30-40% while SSP is 20-25%. Don't know if that makes much of a difference. Also, two programs seem to have different focus, one more qualitative and the other more quantitative. Would appreciate if someone could shed some light on this as I am tryi
  13. Hi there! I'll be starting the MA in International Relations at NYU this fall, anyone else enrolling in the same course? I'll be doing the concentration in European/Mediterranean studies, but would be happy to know people from other concentrations!
  14. Over the weekend, I was (unofficially) accepted to Georgetown's MSFS!!! I am, of course, over the moon as this is my top choice. According to the email, I was waitlisted for a scholarship. Does anyone have any experience with this? How likely is it that funding will come through? And how long are the waitlists for these? I've (of course) applied for outside funding, but most of those do not notify until April, so the cost of attendance is a bit scary at the moment.
  15. Anyone here want to share some stats for global affairs/international relations? I am currently waiting on one more school : Yale (long shot school). I did my undergrad in the physical sciences, so I am literally swapping into a new field. Any advice! Thanks!
  16. HEY GUYS!!!!!! I THOUGHT IT MAYBE HELPFUL IF I STARTED A THREAD ON IR SCHOOL APPLICATIONS I personally applied for the Early decision FOR FLETCHER THERE ARE COUPLE OTHERS I WILL APPLY AS REGULAR DECISION, we could all wait it out together discuss and so on. SINCE WE ARE ALL NERVOUS. If you have applied or planning to apply for regular decision you are welcome too!! ALSO YOU ARE WELCOME TO DISCUSS ANY OTHER IR SCHOOLS THAT YOU APPLIED OR PLANNING TO APPLY!!!!! WE COULD ALL JUST BE SUPPORTIVE AND INFORMATIVE TO ONE ANOTHER HERE!!! GOOD LUCK GUYS!!!!!
  17. Hi there! I'm looking at UChicago's public policy programs and I'm confused about the distinction between two of their options. They offer the MPP through the Harris school with a Global Conflict policy area or an MAIR through the Committee on International Relations with the option of applying for a dual MAPP degree through Harris. I'm interested in international policy and have been primarily looking at MPP programs before entering the workforce (likely in either the non-profit or public sector). My initial concerns with the two programs (and why I'm asking for a differentiation) is th
  18. Hey guys, I'm going to be starting my application for my Master's program soon. My first choice is Carleton's NPSIA. I thought I'd start a thread this year so if anyone else is going to apply as well, we can go on this tumultuous journey together. I'm an international student, so the processes and such may be different and requirements more extensive, but I'm sure we can all find some commonality. And also benefit from discussion.
  19. Heyya! I've been recently accepted at MGIMO (Moscow State Institute of International Relation) into an international program. I thought it would be nice to find other people to get to know each other before we come together in September :). Is there anyone? Either accepted or already well into their Masters' programs, Russian or English or dual or whatever? I'd LOVE to hear from you
  20. Hello, I am a political science undergrad student at a comprehensive university in Ontario, Canada. I currently possess a cumulative GPA of 3.78/4.00 and a major GPA of 3.91/4.00. I recently (two days ago) finished my 3rd out of 4 years of university and will be applying in September/October of 2017 with the marks I have already attained. I have work experience as a teaching and grading IR assistant at my university (going to be 8 months), as a trade policy intern at the Canadian Embassy in Washington, DC (4 months), as a legal intern for a prestigious international law firm (1 month),
  21. Hello everyone, im currently deciding between a few options for grad school fall 2017 start and would love your opinions. I have been accepted into the following programs: LSE MSc In Global Politics Sciences Po MSc In Public policy iheid (graduate institute in Geneva) in international affairs and have also applied to the dual degree between LSE sciences po (Psia) ... haven't heard back yet but assuming I get in, which of the four options would you choose? For some background, I went to undergrad in the US and majored in comparative literature so I am a bit of
  22. I'm a fairly advanced incoming student studying international political economy of finance (financial elite communities, global capital flows, banking regulation), with strong methods training I intend to build on. My final competing programs are UC Berkeley and Columbia, which each have solid merits for these focuses. The former has more senior faculty (VA, BE in dual appointment) where the latter has great new hires in that field (NG and AC, with ongoing searches, they assure me). Obviously the latter has an advantage of pedigree, but I'm looking for any and all advice on which program has a
  23. Hello, would appreciate thoughts regarding graduate school decisions/comments from people in the same boat. Interested in the Middle East, development, and human rights. I have State Dept. experience and did some volunteer NGO work in Lebanon. Accepted to: Middlebury Institute of International Studies at Monterey - International Policy and Development MA program ($14k fellowship over 2 years) George Washington University - Middle East Studies MA program, concentration in International Affairs and Development ($5k/year fellowship) - waiting on another fellowship that would fully
  24. Hi all. So, I was hoping someone could answer some of the IR program questions I have about SIS, SAIS and the UCSD GPS program. Among all three, SAIS undoubtedly has the best all around reputation, and strong training in economics and quantitative analysis. But, from what I've heard so far, unless you're a really outstanding applicant, it's pretty hard to get funding, plus TA positions are few and far in between (my impressions from various personal research). On the other hand, there's American University, located in DC... does anyone know about how quantitatively rigorous this program is?? I
  25. Hello, I'm a Korean student who graduated and was fortunately accepted to the MS in HR/LER program at UIUC and Minnesota. I have not received any funding from either of the two programs, but I was wondering if anyone can help me with my decision between the two. Since I don't have a greencard/citizenship, I know it won't be easy getting internships/job offers in America, but I at least hope to go to a school that will provide me with the best chances in getting one. I hope someone out there can help me out. Thanks!
