  1. 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?
  2. Hello everyone! I have been eagerly awaiting an admission decision from Syracuse's Maxwell School for their Master's in International Relations. I applied to the MAIR degree as part of the Atlantis Dual Degree program. I was wondering if anyone else has applied and received a decision one way or the other yet.
  3. I have been accepted to the Maxwell School Department of Political Science at Syracuse University. However, I am still on the waitlist at Minnesota Political Science. The waitlist process have been so long and I am still waiting for a decision and there are four days until the decision deadline. I was so sure at the beginning that if admitted, I would choose Minnesota because at the PolSci faculty, there is a professor with whose research interests mine totally overlap and I think that I would be a good fit there. Besides, it is a great school (when you get used to the cold weather there).
  4. Hi everyone, I have a bit of a head scratcher here. I have just been offered two opportunities about attending two amazing masters programs, and would love to have some external input. Below are my offers: Carnegie-Mellon Heinz Masters of Science in Public Policy and Management (MSPPM): 2 year program with 50% tuition scholarship (about $50,000 total) Syracuse Maxwell Masters in Public Administration (MPA): 1 year program with $38,000 merit scholarship, graduate assistantship where I will be compensated $15,800, and a $5,000 transition stipend for each each summer I attend (abou
  5. Hi all: help needed. I've been accepted to a few schools and, unfortunately, have not received any merit aid worth mentioning. Considering that I would like to work in International Development, does anyone have any advice for pros and cons of each school? I'm leaning towards Maxwell, but am honestly very conflicted.
  6. Any thoughts?
  7. Hi, I was wondering if anybody has any experience applying to Maxwell recently and can give their insight? What I am interested in is about the rigor of the program since it is one year, and also the average amount of funding the give to students since this will be huge aspect for attending. I recently tried to look at the accepted page but there was not any recent numbers to support this. Also what would be an average GPA/GRE score to be competitive?
  8. Hi, I am Umair from Pakistan. I have a funded offer (Fulbright) for a Phd in Public Policy for Fall 2017. In my submission plan (where Fulbright commission applied for me), unis included Arizona State University, Uni of Texas at Dallas, Uni of Washington- Evans, Syracuse Maxwell, and CMU Heinz. My background is a bit on the low side, an undergrad from a top ranked uni here in Pakistan (but obviously unknown there in the US) with a CGPA of 2.83, where I studied Business Management/ Information Systems. I did a postgrad from Institute of Development Studies at University of Sussex UK, Hi
  9. I'm currently trying to build my resume before applying to grad school for the 2019 year and I'm looking for advice to boost my chances for acceptance.

  10. I know that many people wanted to but were unable to attend these open houses. In an attempt to provide more information to those people, here is a brief wrap-up of how it went. Sorry if it's fragmented, I’m just freestyling this and putting down my thoughts as they come. If anyone has specific questions, feel free to ask. I will inevitably leave a lot out. MAXWELL. I arrived the day before the event and spent time walking around campus and exploring the town. While the campus is big and relatively beautiful, the surrounding town leaves a lot to be desired. It is small and unappea
  11. Hi all, I feel like this is one of the few places I can turn to for sound advice. My family and friends only know so much about this and as a result their opinion is often based on nothing concrete. Let me start by saying I feel very fortunate for being admitted to some great programs. With each acceptance, however, my ultimate decision continues to grow more difficult. There are so many factors that go into making the right decision; professors, career services, funding, location etc. My interests are in international development and I have been working in Africa for the past
