  1. I am looking for advice from anyone who has tried/succeeded in negotiating your aid package. I would appreciate strategies and feedback from anyone who has done this, regardless of their program. However, my admission is to DU Korbel for IDEV. I received scholarships for 39% of tuition and an offer for an hourly "aide" position.
  2. I received admission to DU and the Korbel school for a master's in international development for Fall 2020. Who else on here received admission to Korbel and what other schools you applied to and what draws you to Korbel? Did you receive a financial aid package and merit scholarships?
  3. 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
  4. This is a space to discuss anything about the Korbel School for those who have applied for their programs.
  5. Hello everyone, I have been accepted into Elliott's Security Policy program with 14k a year funding and Korbel's International Studies program with 10k. I am having trouble deciding which one would be the best decision. love the program at Korbel. It is extremely flexible and would allow me to take more classes overall but particularly more skills courses. The skills courses at Korbel are more relevant to overal future careers (project management, data analysis, regulatory policies, etc). I also really like the faculty and the research being done at their centers mirror my exact in
  6. Dear All, I a an Applicant from India , and have done my undergrad in economics (india) MA in International Relations ( India) I have now applied for a second Masters in IR in UK and US . Final aim is to do a PhD and go into teaching. Till the time of writing I have been accepted into American University SIS , Korbel Denver and MPhil in Cambridge . I still wait for Oxford, CIR Chicago, SAIS and Elliott . I hope to do a PhD in USA , and have hence been building and strengthening my profile for it. What are the opinions on doing an MPhil from Oxbridge ? What are the chances of
  7. 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 L
  8. Hi everyone, I have been accepted to Denver's Josef Korbel and the Elliott school at GWU both with some funding, receiving 10k a year from Korbel and 14k a year from Elliott. I have decided that Korbel is my top choice but it is extremely expensive. Can anyone offer advice on how to leverage more funding from Elliott or how to request more aid generally? With 10k a year, Denver would cost $86K while Elliott would only cost $45k. I know Denver is a bit cheaper than DC, but not enough to cover that price difference. I worry about debt as IR is not a lucrative field but the program at Ko

  10. I have a little over a week to make a decision! I've been accepted to 3 US programs with around the same scholarship (50%), same cost for tuition. UDenver's MA in International Development, Heller's MA in Sustainable International Development, and Emory's Masters of Development Practice. I've also been accepted to IHEID (the graduate institute in Geneva) for Development Studies and a dual program between Sciences Po and Columbia's SIPA for International Affairs. These will be comparable costs. I'm essentially still considering Korbel, Emory, and Sciences Po/SIPA, and they ar
  11. Hello all, I've been accepted to Tufts MALD, Georgetown GHD, Korbel MA in Intl Development, and GWU MA in Intl Development, which I have listed in order of my preference at the moment. Does anyone have any insider information on any of these programs, esp regarding job placement and networking? I am strongly leaning toward the MALD program at Tufts at this point, but perhaps you could convince me otherwise. Thank you!
  12. Hello all, I've been offered admission (with no funding) to the SAIS strategic studies program, 7k a year to Elliott's security policy program, and 20k a year to korbel's international security program. I know the debate about prestige vs debt is getting old, but does anybody have any advice? Will I be so severely disadvantaged not being in DC? I've also heard that though korbel is 11th for IR in general, its strength is in its security program. Also I have heard of other students using acceptance into top tier schools as leverage to get more funding from lower ranked schools,
  13. Problem: I've been accepted into some incredible programs and now I'm having a truly difficult time deciding between them. I honestly didn't expect to get into more than one or two programs (my undergrad GPA wasn't amazing), so while I'm pleasantly surprised, I'm overwhelmed! I have been accepted at: Georgetown University - MA in Conflict Resolution, No funding University of Denver - MA in International Studies, No funding The Graduate Institute in Geneva - MA in Political Science/International Relations, No funding Here are my thoughts: I'm primarily concerned wi
  14. Hi all, I'm wondering if anyone has any opinion about the Korbel school, and how it compares to other non-DC institutions, specifically Syracuse. I heard of it this week for the first time, and see it's ranked pretty high, but have never heard of anyone who went there. Any opinions? Is it worth it? What's financial support like in that school? is it considered top-tier?
