  1. Hi all, Decision day is right around and wanted this forum's insight on making this decision. Both of the school has offered me equal scholarships ~30k per year, so in case of financial bit, both are equal (I know folks who got more than this). Even though Yale seems to have a loan from university for international students as well to cover the balance of the cost, so that is a plus. However for Energy specialization, program wise Duke seems better. Also, the internship support is better I hear (Stanback and others) but would need further verification on this. I want to primarily go into
  2. Anybody who is applying to MEM programs in Yale FES, Duke Nicholas School, UCSB Bren, etc.?
  3. Hello! Would anyone be interested in reviewing my SOP? I am applying to a bunch of Environmental Management and Policy programs. https://docs.google.com/document/d/1uIoun1IXWnKmcoKrSa-UMA6ajss1FN8E0JRjFt1xmYE/edit?usp=sharing I've linked my SOP above; feel free to leave comments on the Google Doc. For some context, this version is meant for a California school, which is why I mention the state. I, of course, tweak my SOP according to the program I am applying to. This version is slightly long. For the other applications, I will cut
  4. Hello. I'm looking to submit a bunch of applications in the next couple of weeks and I'm not feeling so great about my SOP. I'm looking for feedback and criticism to tighten my SOP before submitting. I'm applying to a bunch of environmental management programs and MPP/A programs, with an environmental specialization.
  5. Help! The decision is right around the corner, and I need to start mentally preparing for this (huge) life change/decision. For anyone who has considered, attended, or decided - where do I pursue my MEM, Duke or Yale? I visited Duke, and I could tell it was a great program. The administration is clearly willing to help students out financially, supportive with research and work opportunities, and they consistently tout their alumni network as one of the best. Many people seem to say Duke really emphasizes building concrete technical skills, and that it might be easier to find a job u
  6. Like most here I'm trying to decide between two great programs. I was accepted to UC Berkeley's Environmental Science, Policy, and Management PhD program with full funding + stipend, as well as Yale's Masters of Environmental Management program with partial funding covering approximately half of my costs. I have several scholarships lined up which could theoretically (if awarded) cover the rest of the costs should I choose Yale-- it would just mean more leg work on my part. I would ultimately like to start an environmental consulting firm to assist Tribes with the development of resource
  7. Hello, Congratulations to all who have received acceptance to Dartmouth. I am looking for a ( girl) roommate at Dartmouth College Hanover. Interested people , kindly drop your comments below!
  8. I'm an international applicant for MEM in Duke. It seems that an interview is needed to be admitted, but I haven't heard anything from that. I don't think I'm not competitive enough to get the chance for interviewing anyway... They once mismatched my TOEFL and GRE official transcript, so I'm not sure if they missed my name on email list this time... Any information would be appreciated
  9. Going to grad school for environmental policy, especially energy/climate/transportation policy. Which one?? Each has diff strengths. Have visited all 3 and asked plenty of questions. Haven't spoken with Bren alums yet though -- anyone here a Bren alum? I'd love to pick your brain before admission offers all expire on Sat Apr 15. Duke Nicholas: policy school classes, energy initiative, big alum network, generally big and lots of resources (maybe research?) George Washington U Trachtenberg: environmental resource policy program, location in dc lots of govt and ngo opportunities while
  10. Hi! I do not see any thread dedicated to Dartmouth MEM, Fall 2017. Please comment here in case you've accepted Dartmouth's offer. It would be nice to connect with all heading to the same program this year.
  11. Hello Everyone! I have been accepted to Duke MEM and Columbia MS&E Programs starting Fall'17 and need to decide between the two in next 2 days due to my deadline for deposit. I am EXTREMELY confused between these two schools. My main concern is "Choosing better ranked university or better ranked program"? Both can be completed in 1 calendar year. Duke has no doubt one of the best MEM Programs (ranked 3rd in the world) and huge campus and great university ranking (11/US) but is in Durham NC. Total cost is aprox 75k USD Columbia has the Ivy League tag to it, not known for its
  12. DUKE Dartmouth Pros Lesser tuition Reputation (one of the Ivy leagues) Opportunities for funding in-terms of RA ship, TA ship and Resident Assistantship 20% tuition waiver, TA positions available Program is very flexible. All Technical electives can be chosen fro
  13. Hi, I don't have an acceptance from Waterloo yet, but I'm really confused between these 2 programs. Waterloo would probably cost less than half of Dartmouth. However, taking tuition out of the picture, which one in your opinion seems better? Kindly keep in mind that I also hope to get some exposure/work ex after my graduation. Please send in your suggestions. all your opinions are welcome and would be highly appreciated. Thanks!
  14. Hey everyone! Im currently in the process of choosing grad schools and I am kind of lost between those two universities mentioned above. Can I get advice on the university? Anything would behelpful! (Student life, academics, post grad careers, career fairs) Thank you!
  15. Hello everyone, A little background: - --I work in debt capital markets/corporate banking as an analyst/underwriter - -- I’m concurrently studying fulltime to complete my MBA at a non-top 20 but regionally reputable/strong business school (think Northeastern/BC/Nova). Set to finish the program two semesters early. ~3.9 GPA with finance concentration. - --Undergrad at top 10 liberal arts school in New England with non-STEM major. Marginal GPA (3.4). Though I enjoy the work I am doing and see myself staying with my current company for at
  16. Hey everyone! I graduated from one of the top engineering schools in US with chemical engineering major. I am currently in the process of choosing grad schools and I am kind of lost between those two programs mentioned above. I really wanna hear from you ! Based on my research, UCB (M.S chemical engineering -product development program) Pro: Its related with my chemical engineering background though we will not take any traditional chemical engineering courses in that PDP program like thermo, fluids...It focuses on the product development with concentration on pharm, cosmet
  17. There's a decent amount of discussion about Bren and SPEA on this board, but the EER program isn't as popular so I'm hoping anyone who knows anything about it can comment. I'm interested in renewable energy and energy policy, particularly I want to support and implement wind, solar, or smaller-scale clean programs. I have a background in science and research but recently switched fields so I don't have any applicable undergraduate coursework or professional training in energy or policy, so I will greatly value each program's course offerings. My primary goal is to get a job afterwards, ideally
  18. Similar to last year's MEM 2011 thread, anyone applying to Master of Environmental Management or Environmental Policy programs is welcome to share their info and thoughts regarding the application process. Program Applied To: MA in Environmental Studies, MS in Natural Resources & Environment, MEM Schools Applied To: Brown University CES (MA), Duke University Nicholas School (MEM), University of Michigan SNRE (MS), Yale University FES (MEM) Schools Accepted To: Undergraduate Institution: UMass Undergraduate GPA: 3.41, 3.82 last 3 semesters Undergraduate Major: Political Science
  19. Anyone applying to Duke's MEM program? Just curious how they have been assessing the new revised GRE scores. I am taking GRE exams in March and May.
  20. I'm a first year MPP at Sanford, and I'm happy to answer any questions you might have about the school. I chose Sanford over Ford, Harris, GPPI and others, and I have been happy with my decision. I'm in the energy/enviro policy area, but I'll try to answer any questions you have about other policy areas, the school or Durham (which I think is great). I was out of school 5 years before coming back, including 3 years as a policy analyst in DC.
  21. Has anyone got interview calls for Duke's MEM program?
