    Am I competitive for an MPA?

    I just got my GRE results back yesterday...I got a 155 Q (58th percentile), 163 V (93rd percentile) and 5 Analytics (92nd percentile). I worry that my quant score is lower than what a lot of schools want; I'm aiming for Brown's Watson School, CIPA, SIPA, and Fletcher, primarily. I'm a poli sci undergrad major now at an Ivy League school; my major GPA is a 3.54 but my cumulative GPA is lower due to a disastrous first year. I'm also playing up my fluency in Arabic as a selling point for myself...should I retake the GRE or lower my expectations for schools?
  2. Hey guys, I have applied to Baruch, NYU Wagner and Northeastern Uni for an MPA (FALL 2019). Previously, I did apply to NYU for an MA in Global Affairs - specializing in International Law (which I got accepted) and St. John's Uni for an MA in Sociology (also accepted). However, I decided to reject both and reapply for an MPA for various reasons. I run an intl humanitarian org (started in 2016) and already manage 1.5 million budget and large team, won a couple of awards from local US officials and intl orgs, I worked in higher ed, and also law office as paralegal. I also spoke at UN sessions in NY and Switzerland on conflicts. Sat along with US officials on panels, etc. My BA was in Sociology, but with so much going on at the time, my GPA was overall a 3.2 but my major GPA was a 3.7. My recommendation letters are from top executives at a college, college adviser and also a colleague who is currently an editor for a program at Harvard. My last minute change did not allow me to take the GRE and I know that for Northeastern Uni they don't ask for it and Baruch, you can opt out with a 3.0+ but NYU WAgner was strongly recommended + a video essay which was done professionally (i submitted). What are the odds of getting in? Once the MPA is done, I am studying for the GRE so I can enter a PhD program in International Relations or Public Policy. Also the price tag for NYU Wagner is huge. IS it worth it if an applicant already has good connections to think-tanks, orgs, UN, etc? I am eventually planning to apply to PhD programs at NYU, Princeton, Columbia, Northwestern, etc.
  3. Hey everyone. I'm looking into MPA programs to apply to this year or next year and I'm desperately hoping to find programs that are critical of the aid/development machine and that don't flinch around topics such as slavery, colonialism, the racial wealth divide, capitalism and neoliberalism, etc. This post greatly resonates with how I feel about the field of international development, both academically and professionally. I was pursuing a PhD in a humanities field but have gotten so tired about just talking, writing, and teaching about these topics. I'm ready for a degree that will equip me with the actual skills and background I need to have more of an impact. That's where (I'm hoping) the MPA comes into play. I'm of the solidarity mindset: "nothing about us without us"; working "for" and "with" as opposed to "on" or "about" communities; global economic and social justice as opposed to decontextualized aid, charity/philanthropy, and consulting. The idea of making a living by telling people in "developing" countries what to do is a huge turn-off. I'm hoping to find meaningful work where my role can be that of a well-trained and well-connected ally, leveraging resources and my sphere of influence, and working directly with vulnerable, marginalized, oppressed, and exploited communities, to reach the goals that they themselves wish to see come to fruition. I also want to avoid the whole Global North/Western/white savior narrative. Is genuine Global North/Global South solidarity even possible, despite being so fraught? A relevant piece of personal context: while I grew up in the U.S., my family immigrated from Latin America (I was actually born there myself), so I can relate to feeling a profound human connection to these topics beyond the statistics and policy memo bullet points. Also, I pass as white (I look unmistakably Western European) and am very conscious of the privilege this gives me. I would love your advice on which grad programs to consider. I'm looking at some of the usual suspects: Princeton, Harvard, Columbia, Georgetown, Tufts, Johns Hopkins, the LSE, Sciences Po, etc. I was pleasantly surprised by the MA in ID at the University of Sheffield, as it seems to approach development from a wider spectrum of perspectives, but it's a one-year program and isn't specifically an MPA program, even if it does have a lot of overlap. The LSE has a really awesome MSc in Empires, Colonialism, and Globalisation, but it's more of an academic MA. However, it seems like MPA students can take some of their electives through that program, which is an exciting possibility to me! Harvard's MPA-ID program doesn't necessarily give me major woke vibes, but they do offer a cool course called "Getting Things Done" that focuses on participatory development that actually benefits those whom it purports to serve. Do you think that being overtly critical of development in my application (like in the Statement of Purpose) is too risky, or worth a shot? I can't tell whether I should "play along" with the mainstream development framework just enough to get accepted, and then seek alternatives to it once I'm in. Or, instead, whether I should be bold and true to my values, but risk alienating most programs from considering me. I'd love some feedback from like-minded folks who care about social justice, especially if you're also pursuing an MPA or a similar degree, or, have been there, done that, and feel similarly disillusioned with the field of ID. Thank you for reading, friends.
  4. Hi Everyone! I am applying to HKS, WWS, SIPA, and SFS. Harvard Kennedy School is my dream school, and I wanted to know what you guys think my chances are: GRE: 164 Verbal, 163 Quant, 4.5 AWA Education: NYU Stern School of business, Major: Business (concentration was Marketing). GPA: 3.4 Work Experience: Currently work as a policy research analyst for the NYC Department of Transportation (8 months), worked at Unilever’s Future Leaders program for a year and a half prior this role Non-Profit Experience: Director of a non-profit I joined my freshman year, organization was small but I arranged a meeting with the Prime Minister of India and so popularity skyrocketed – also proposed a highly-impactful program within the organization that highly scaled impact. Part of two other large Indian non-profits currently, on the leadership board of one for their young professionals chapter. International experience: Travelled to 35 countries over the past four years, volunteered abroad in Tanzania and Bali, upon returning I fundraised to expand the school I worked at in Tanzania from primary to secondary school (experience featured in an article on usblastingnews). Travel photographer with 10K followers on Instagram (handle @travelwithkrishna) Analytical experience: A’s in all statistics courses (freshman statistics, Time Series Regression, Multivariate regression and analysis), A in calculus, B+ in macroeconomics and B in microeconomics LORs: One from a professor, one from CEO of non-profit, one from Manager at unilever. Should all be solid. Concerns: My undergrad GPA is low as I developed a severe skin condition my sophomore year, and was very sick and depressed. I took a semester off my junior fall and my condition healed, but it severely impacted my grades both sophomore year and junior spring (transitioning back was very hard.) I explained this in the optional portion of my application – but do you think it is far too low to be excused? Thanks so much for your help 😊
  5. 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 this time i actually get to go to Grad School And below are the schools that i would be applying to for the Fall 2019 term: Yale Jackson Institute of Global Affairs Baruch CUNY Austin W. Marxe School of public and International Affairs Penn State school of International Affairs University of Georgia Seton Hall University My UGPA is 3.6 i will have worked 2 years by next summer. My GREs are in the 153s not that but i will try to work with it.
  6. Hello! I am currently a Research Investigator working for a reputed Institute in South India. The project is a panel survey funded by the Government and World Bank and we work with a reputed University in the USA who are our research partners. I moved into this field after working as a Business Journalist for over year in Delhi where I have published work, both written and in video. So I have two years of work experience in these respective fields. I'm part of a fellowship that works towards public policy solutions in India as well. I studied my bachelors in Economics and then a PG diploma in Journalism. I've done certificate courses from Trinity Guildhall and London School of Economics and have obtained high scores. I have a ton of social work with Red Cross, AIESEC, Teach for India etc. I am currently teaching underprivileged children English. Right now, I plan on applying for the MPA course in America and other development Policy courses too. However, my CGPA is 6.7/10 from undergrad and 78% from my PG diploma course. I took my GRE last year and scored a mere 304. Do I even stand a chance at getting admission? Im looking to apply to Columbia, NYU, UT-LBJ, Chicago University, Gerogetown, Duke Standford, LSE and IDS. Please suggest more universities that I can look at and stand a chance to get in. Any kind of help would do!!
  7. Hi everyone, I need some help figuring out which degree I should pursue. I'm an entry-level coordinator of undergraduate student programs. My career is going to be focused on College Access, Equity, and Success. I want to explore this in a variety of professional opportunities such as college counseling in high schools and education nonprofits, student affairs, education policy, and eventually teaching. I know that I wouldn't dive into policy and teaching until way later in my career when I've built up an extensive amount of professional experience in the field. Which means as of now I'll be focusing my professional opportunities on coordinating programs and providing services to students at various stages in their educational journeys from pre to post-college. Knowing this... which degree should I pursue? I love how broad the MPA is, the applicability of the skills learned to higher education administration, and the possibility for diving into government and policy later on. But I also recognize how specific the MEd is thus the much more sense it makes to pursue that especially in the early and middle stages of my career. These were some options I came up for myself and wanted your feedback on: MEd in Student Affairs or Education, Culture, Society or Sociology of Education and get a certificate in some skills on public and nonprofit performance management MEd in Higher Education Administration and get a certificate in College Access and Diversity and/or Student Affairs MPA and get one or both of the same certificates in College Access and Diversity and/or Student Affairs These programs are a combination of different schools that offer both on-campus and online formats. I'm not sure if I'd complete the certificates at the same time as the degrees but do them right after. But what do you think of these options? As you see there's a multitude of MEd programs to choose from but I feel each misses a something from the other. Some either focus on education broadly and not enough on higher education, some are more theoretical and research heavy and don't have enough practical skills in management, finances, organization, etc. some dive into the politics, history, philosophy and sociology of education which I love because it eventually focuses on College Access and Equity but again offer not many practical skills. I'm basically trying to find the perfect program combination that will combine all of this relevant content and the practical skills needed to succeed in this field. Other suggestions aside from I listed are welcomed such as pursuing one program for my master's and the other for a doctorate or second master's if necessary.
  8. Hi, I am international applicant! I am in a dilemma and desperately need your advice! I took GRE twice first I got following scores : Q159, V 156 and AWA 3.5 Since my AWA score was pretty low I decided to try it again, this time I got Q156, V155 and in AWA 4.5, my AWA score is much better now, but Quantitative and Verbal scores are little lower My target schools are Harvard kennedy mpp, columbia sipa Mpa, tufts fletcher MALD, Georgetown MSFS Syracuse maxwell mpa, washington ewans mpa, the average GRE scores of accepted candidates at these schools are in around 70 percentiles. So, now I don't know what to do, the Verbal and Quantitative scores of my first GRE exam are above 70 percentiles and therefore above average scores at my target schools, but my AWA is below average, whereas Q and V scores of my second exam are little lower than average but AWA is above average What should I do? Should I report both scores? Or the first one? Or the second one? Will scoring a little less in Q and Verbal section lower my chances of accepting at these schools?
  9. Hey everyone, Who else has applied/is applying to public policy programs in Canada for this fall? So far, I've applied to just the MPPA program at Carleton since I'm based in Ottawa. If I don't get in, I can always work for a year and then apply again. I also have the public policy programs at Dalhousie and maybe UOttawa as backup options. I considered applying to Queen's though I've decided against it for now. That's where I went for my undergrad and I'd like to go somewhere new.

    HKS 2018

    Hello, Has anyone applied to HKS many times and got dinged? What should I do? I was admitted to MPA/MPP at other Ivies and other programs at Harvard (GSD and GSE). Since HKS is my dream school, I decided not to attend any program. Any advice would be appreciated!

    Cornell CIPA MPA 2018

    I have been browsing the forums for some time now but haven't found any applicants to Cornell CIPA 2018. Has anyone heard from CIPA, or does anyone have an idea of what their timeline is this year? I submitted my application January 15 and I am waiting since then

    Re-applying vs. Deferring

    Hi everyone, I am currently in a rut thinking about my options for the Fall (as I am sure many of you are). If anyone has any advice regarding this, I would really appreciate hearing it. I have been accepted to these schools and programs, with the following financial aid funding per year: - CMU Heinz, MSPPM (50%, ~$24k) - Chicago Harris, MPP ($20k) - Johns Hopkins SAIS, MA IDEV (no funding) - GWU Trachtenberg, MPA ($20k) -American SPA, MPA ($10k) I have also been accepted for a Taiwan Fulbright ETA for the next year, so I am leaning toward either deferring a program or reapplying altogether. While it is appealing to defer and not have to worry about applications again (while in Taiwan), I am wondering if I might be more competitive for more funding if I reapplied to a few of the schools next cycle (and possibly renegotiate) as a candidate with the same profile PLUS a Fulbright ETA under my belt. I would rather not have to take out $80k+ in loans in the coming years, so any advice is appreciated!

    MPA vs. MALD

    Hi Guys, Long (long) time lurker first-time poster here. Any input will go a long way in helping me decide which program is best suited to my personal situation. I am an Indian applicant looking to move to the US somewhat long-term . I am a lawyer by training and since graduating from law school I have worked as a policy professional for the past 3 years in not for profit thinktanks in India. My focus areas have been access to health, cybersecurity and judicial reforms, but I am sector and subject agnostic as I enter grad school. I have received admits from the following schools 1. Michigan Ford - no aid 2. Chicago Harris - no aid 3. Georgetown McCourt - 15000 per year in aid (tuition is 55k py) 4. George Washington Trachtenberg - 20000 per year in aid (tuition is 35k py) 5. Columbia SIPA - 12000 per year in aid (60k py tuition) 6. Fletcher MALD - 20000 per year in aid (45k py tuition) I have ruled out Michigan, SIPA and Chicago since thy are not financially viable even though I am still wowed by Chicago's program. I have been advised to turn down George Washington despite the aid since the school does not have as much international recognition, in the event that I won't be able to stay on in the US. Am I being misled? Does the programs raking or eliteness make that much of a difference? My focus after graduating is definitely securing employment and staying on in the US (it will be insanely difficult to pay back this kind of money on a public service job in my domestic currency). I am now attempting to choose between Georgetowns MPP and Fletchers MALD. Is Georgetown's DC location worth pay twice as much as I would at Fletcher? Is the MPP degree more marketable in the long-term than an MALD degree? I enjoy being a generalist and am looking to gain skills that can be applied across sectors. That said will the heavier quant training at an MPP/MPA program make me more employable? I have mostly worked in academia and non-profits, and am now interested in exploring private sector (but still have good work-life balance). I am also second guessing rejecting Columbia's offer since some people have advised that being in NY will serve me well as an international student, and that I can recoup costs by taking up a consulting job. Likewise I am worried that I am making a huge mistake turning down GWUs scholarship. Any advice or insight you are able to provide will be really helpful. (Hoping @Prester John and @ExponentialDecay will comment. Thanks.
  14. Hey Y'all, For those of you who applied to Brown University's Watson Institute of Public Affairs' MPA program 2018 Have you heard anything back with regards to admission status and funding? I applied during the regular decision deadline (February 23, 2018) and I have yet to hear back from them. This despite that the program stating admission decisions would be sent out in Mid March. Should I attempt to contact the department regarding the status of my application or should I wait it out? I believe the website states April 15th is the commitment to accept admission deadline (THIS SUNDAY) Is this a bad sign that I have not heard back yet? Any insight would be appreciated Thanks!
  15. Hi all, I'm looking into a joint degree program where I would walk away with both a MPA and a JD. Most of the schools I am looking at say the program will take a total of 4 years, with one program saying it will only take 3.5. I am aware that since I'd be in school for a longer period of time, I will accrue more debt than if I elected to pursue just one of these degrees. My question is for people who have or are currently enrolled in a dual degree program (mostly looking at MPA/MPP/JD) about how does your financial aid differ compared to just being enrolled at one school? Many thanks in advance, I appreciate any answers or additional guidance.

    NYU MPA or GWU MPA?

    Hi All, I've been accepted to NYU Wagner for the MPA and into GW's MPA program at the Trachtenberg School. My concern is, would Wagner be just as good as GW's program? I've heard that Wagner is very focused on domestic policy vs. international, which is my interest. At Wagner I would pursue the international specialization, how strong is it? This is one of my main concern. The reason I am leaning very heavily towards NYU is because my family is there and I could live at home, which would mean being able to do school full-time (finish in 2 years) and save living costs. It is also possible that NYU will be giving me some aid, whereas GW has me on a waitlist (looking unlikely I will get anything). I am also already living and working in DC, so it would be easier to transition to GWU, but I would work full-time and go to GW part-time. I am super torn because I just want to pick the right school that will set me up for a strong future. Any thoughts or advice? I appreciate it!

    MPA/MPP Applications, Fall 2017 (Canada)

    I suppose we all finished submitting our applications and wait for some news. Let's talk about our issues and developments of applications. I'm waiting for 2 universities (UVic and USask) and applied for MPA.
  18. So stuck here. I got an offer from Brown's MPA program. The program is a perfect fit for me, but it's not super highly-ranked. My other offer is from UNC (top 25). Is the Ivy League brand worth it in this case? Please note that Brown's program is only a few years old. Please help!
  19. Just curious if anyone has heard regarding funding from SPEA? They indicated that decisions would be going out mid-March, but when I wrote on the 15th to ask if they had made decisions and if all students would be notified or only those who received funding, they simply told me they were still in the process and couldn't give me more firm information. I'm very, very interested in attending but funding is, as for many, a big part of my decision. Has anyone out there heard anything? The suspense is killing me! Thanks!

    Resume Help-MPA

    Hello! I graduated in 2015 and I've been teaching in Korea since. I'll be applying to graduate programs for MPA and I could really use some help on my resume. Can anyone take a look at it and give me some feedback please? If so I can PM it to you. Thanks!
  21. Hey guys, I have received admissions from several good programs, such as MPA in Columbia SIPA, MPA in Cornell CIPA, MPP in Georgetown U, MPP in USC Price, MPP in UCLA Luskin and MPA in NYU Wagner. I am still waiting for the decision from CMU Heinz MSPPM data analytics track, the director told me that I will be notified within this week, and he told me that the GRE-retaking e-mail sent by them earlier was a mistake and I don't need to retake GRE(does this mean that I will be admitted?). Here is the queation: which one should I choose? I prefer SIPA and Heinz, but I finally have to choose one. SIPA locates in Manhattan, and there are many job opportunities, but I kind of worrying about the skill set I can obtain there since those traditional MPA program's courses are very general, like politics, economics, international affair or something. MSPPM-DA can provide me a strong ability of data analytics and even Artificial Intelligence, but I guess Pittsburgh is not as convenient as NYC when I want to find a job. I am working as a consultant in China, and I finished a consulting report for Didi Chuxing(the largest ride-sharing company in China, like Uber in USA). This consulting service I have offered aims at helping Didi Chuxing builds up a Public Information Service Platform with the government to generate advises for urban development, and it will be done in a Public-Private-Partnership framework. During the research, I noticed that massive data(over twenty millions of ride-sharing services every single day) generated by users of Didi has been largely wasted because those data have not been connected with the government's database and other companies who provide urban public services too. Since then, I feel strong passion in sharing and exploring data for common good of our society, and as the result, I believe that MSPPM-DA can give a better skill set to deal with the issue in the future. My optimal goal is finding a consulting job in USA, what aspect should I focus on? Location, reputation or skill set? Additionally, I have learned and practiced Python programming in my undergrad, so I am confident that I can fit in Data Analytics track well. Anybody have some suggestions for me? Any idea will be appreciated.

    So...how are you going to choose?

    I'm a pretty indecisive person, and I'm curious how everyone else is approaching their decisions on what to accept or decline. What questions are you asking? What factors are most important to you? How are you getting your information (talking to current students, website, admitted students day, etc)? Obviously funding is extremely important, but I know that not everyone always goes with the cheapest option. How are you gauging whether higher costs are worth it? I know that debt vs payoff is always important in all fields, but I think it is especially important in public policy, which no one gets into thinking they're going to make big money. Here are some questions that I've been asking: How many students go on to be PMFs? How well do students know their professors? Are research opportunities accessible to grad students? What sectors are students employed in after graduating? How easy is it to take interesting electives in other departments? What do most students spend time on outside of the classroom? Is heavy extracurricular involvement common? Do most work part time? What are the alumni or career center services like? (Are there more specific questions I can ask about this?) How many years of professional experience are most students coming in with? What questions, facts, etc have helped you get a good sense of what a particular grad school is actually like? I'd love to hear from people currently in these programs or recently graduated about what you wish you would have asked before enrolling. I don't think these are particularly nuanced so it would be great to hear what questions you have asked that led to enlightening answers.
  23. Hello, all! I'm deciding on an MPA program, and I have it narrowed down to Brown and UNC Chapel Hill. I'm honestly totally split, and have no idea what to do. I'd really appreciate thoughts from others. The situation is that Brown is 1 year and UNC is 2, but UNC is still much, much cheaper. UNC is ranked a good bit higher, but Brown has the name and more of a global focus (which is my interest). I'm most likely interested in working in the nonprofit sector, and Brown's program would be better for that, but I'm having trouble reconciling that with the high cost of tuition. The problem is that I know i don't have a bad option and I have no clue where to go! Thanks in advance for your thoughts.
  24. 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.
  25. Hello all, I was wondering if anyone could offer insight on career services for MPA/MPP students at the University of Washington's Evans School and Georgetown's McCourt School -- specifically, how well-networked each is in New York. I currently live in the city, and hope to return here after graduation, but it seems that graduates of each school tend to stay nearby (in Seattle and D.C., respectively). I assume the Georgetown name would carry more weight on the East Coast, though I have no hard data to back up that intuition. (NYU Wagner would have been my first choice, but no funding makes things difficult. Results are pending from Columbia SIPA, though my video essay was not anywhere near what it should have been.) Thanks for any advice you may have!
