  1. Hi all, I have been admitted to the Hertie School of Governance starting Sept 2020 and have been offered a scholarship of 25%. I have a research background for a Management consulting firm for about 4+ years. I am confused about the offer since I will have to take a loan for the remaining 75% of the amount and I don't have any German language skills as of yet. As I will be taking a loan if I plan to go, I am very much concerned about its repayment. What are the job prospects and how much time does it take to pay a loan of ~24.5 thousand Euros with an average salary after MPP. Looking forward to your thoughts.
  2. I have received acceptance letters from University of Chicago and Carnegie Mellon for their public policy grad programs and am trying to decide between the two. Chicago is obviously my number one choice, however the funding offers I received make this a difficult decision. Both schools cost about $90K for tuition for two years, and while University of Chicago offered me no funding or scholarships, Carnegie Mellon offered a scholarship covering 80% of tuition (essentailly $15K of tuition instead of $90K over two years). It is also important to note I currently have no undergraduate debt and am open to student loans regardless of which school I attend. I also plan on working in the private sector afterwards and would have a good enough salary to pay off any debt that i have. I believe that Chicago is such a good school and such a great experience that the opportunities I will have from attending there might be worth the high tuition costs. Is it worth it? But Carnegie Mellon is also a great school. What should I do? P.S. I have also been accepted to University of Michigan and Georgetown University with some funding offers. I may use those as competing offers to try and get higher scholarship packages from Chicago and Carnegie Mellon. Any advice is welcomed!
