  1. Hi guys, I am hoping that I can use the wisdom in this forum to bust myths about some programs and decide which schools to apply to. I would love to hear your, especially alum’s, thoughts on the programs mentioned, whether I have incorrect assumptions about them, what I failed to consider, and, if possible, program recommendations (not limited to the those mentioned here.) Also, I'll be almost 30 year-old when submitting applications. Will being older negatively impact my chances of getting in? I’ve been working as a diplomat for a small Asian country for the past five years and am
  2. I was wondering if it would be feasible to and would worth doing a MIA (Master of International Affairs) after a PhD in Contemporary History. A year ago I asked advice about a second PhD in Pol Sci (Chinese FP). Since then I have made some progress studying the language (now studying B1-HSK3 level) and I plan to take two Algebra and Stats online courses at an Extension school. As a second PhD is still part of my plan, given the difficulty of being admitted at a top program and being employed by a Uni after several years of studying I would like to have some advice on doing a MIA, at Co
  3. Hi everyone! I'm currently working on my application to be admitted to an MPA program, more specifically the program at the University of Central Florida. I'd really appreciate any feedback on my SoP! I can PM the link to it Many thanks!!
  4. For all those waiting it out
  5. I’m applying to grad school in the near future and have been contemplating either getting a MPP, MPA, or an IR degree. I’m leaning towards an MPP but want to make sure my choice moves my career towards a foreign policy role at a think tank. From my research, it seems like IR delves into the theoretical side of foreign policy, MPP into the practical side of policy formulation and MPA into the practical side policy implementation and review. Is this a fair assessment? Thanks!!
  6. Hi everyone! I graduated from UCF Dec 2017 with a bachelors in legal studies and minor in criminal justice. I had hopes of becoming a lawyer but after working at a law firm and interning for a judge, I realized it just wasn't for me. I then decided to switch directions and started working towards getting a doctorate in physical therapy (I was originally a biomed major when I started college and wanted to go to med school but was also super interested in law). After much thought and having tried my hand at having hands on medical experience working as a tech in a trauma unit at a hospital,
  7. Hello Everyone, I'm a 20 year undergrad kid who is pursuing bachelor's in political science(last year) and after doing so i am wishing to apply for MPA program in either of NYU WAGNER/SIPA/PACE UNIVERSITY/CUNY. For backup I've kept CSU, UCLA, GWU etc etc... Although as I've no background in maths I'm not thinking to give GRE and as mostly all these Uni's don't require it for this program am really confused about what exactly would the admission office be looking at i.e what would be the basis of assessment an international student like myself and how do i make sure to land my
  8. Hi All, Posting here to see if anyone else can relate to my conundrum..basically, choosing between either Columbia SIPA or Baruch MPA. I am a mid-level federal employee who is obtaining a higher education degree to transition into a managerial position. I have heard great things about both Columbia and Baruch, but the obvious comes down to cost. My employer is NOT paying for schooling and I did not receive any scholarships. If I attend Baruch, I'd pay in full without loans, if I go to Columbia, I'd take out loans. Has anyone been in a similar situation where the prestigious school he
  9. Hey y'all, I am ecstatic after receiving acceptances from both of these schools. After evacuating from the Peace Corps, I worried that I would miss the application deadlines and be stuck in limbo but both schools really worked with me to submit a completed application before the deadline. Nonetheless, now I face a tough decision. Ideally, following graduate school, I aspire for a career in international conflict mediation specifically in the Middle East or Southeast Asia. As of right now, it would be only slightly more to attend Seton Hall and the proximity to NYC bolsters the overall att
  10. Hey guys, hope this grad season is faring well with everyone! I just got offers from two of the programmes for the coming year (hopefully the virus outbreak won't affect my plans). If someone could provide some insights into how they compare (in terms course design, career opportunities, how these programmes are perceived in the field), that would super helpful! 1.

  11. Hello, Aside from the corona virus dilemma that is affecting all of us, there are a lot of you who are going through tough decisions to make over the next 15 days. Now, that most of the acceptances/rejections are out. I thought that I would start a thread similar to this one. Folks can share what schools they are deciding between and what circumstances they are considering, as well as any other factors that are being considered. I'll lead off: Coming from: Syria, but residing in Germany. Deciding between: MA in Global Affairs (Yale) - tuition covered. MPA in Dev

  14. Hello! I am excited to announce that I have been admitted into the Rutgers MPA program. I finally received my letter of admission. However, I noticed on the Rutgers Website that most programs send out additional information, so I am curious if I will receive I should expect to receive additional information, specifically scholarship information, before accepting admission. Please let me know if you have any experience with this program! All help is appreciated.
  15. Hi all, As some of you may know the UPenn Fels program received a complete makeover during the past two years and began admitting new students for fall 2020 after a hiatus last year. I am really looking for those with knowledge to provide insight on how the program has changed and information on how the program is looked upon in the MPA/MPP community. There seems to be very little information about the new program and previous quality insights are from old posts in 2012/2013. Thanks in ahead.
  16. Hello everyone! I was wondering if there are any PEPM (Columbia SIPA) applicants in this forum. It would be nice to share thoughts about the application process, and share together all the anxiety about the decisions of the admission committee.
  17. ¿Someone have obtained a response about the admission of the PEPM program?
  18. Is there ever any instance where MPP/MPA programs (Rutgers, Syracuse, Brown) that usually ask for GRE test scores willingly and eagerly accept LSAT scores for an equal replacement?
  19. These programs all want applicants who have work experience but: 1) What kinds of work experience are they looking for? I was in the Army before my undergrad, so there's 4 years, but places say they want "post-graduation" work experience. I like to believe they won't dismiss that just because it's what I did before undergrad. I worked as a line cook at a restaurant part-time in undergrad but obviously that isn't what they're looking for. 2) How do you get administrative experience (for an MPA) in just a few years out of undergrad with just a bachelors? This is what we're going to g
  20. Hi all, I have been lurking on the website for a while and this is my first post. I am applying to MPA/MPP/MA in Intl Affairs programs for 2020 fall but now I am a little lost. I am an Intl student who went to a top US uni (top20) and graduated last year. I have been interested in international affairs and politics for a while (was writer for school politics magazine, did research in IR, etc) but eventually I went into investment banking after graduation. I was not particularly into banking but I guess I did not think about my career paths clearly before getting into finance. One ye
  21. Hi! My dream program is Harvard MPP, and I wanted to get some opinions on my chances, based on my background. Undergraduate degree: UC Berkeley Economics, and Political Economy, 3.7 GPA Work experience: 2 years of experience at a technology startup (IoT) in San Francisco with Biz Dev/Product Marketing roles; internships with a political party in India, The Scottish Parliament, and consulting companies Post Grad school ambition: Public Sector Consultancy for a couple of years and public administration in India (I am originally from there!) I am also considering ot
  22. Hi everyone! Who else has applied/is applying to public policy programs in Canada for this fall?  So far, I've applied to the MPS program at University of Waterloo, the MPA program at Queens, and the MPP program at Munk.
  23. Hello all, My name is T, I am new here. My husband suggested I join the grad cafe as I have so many questions that my school won’t entertain. I understand why they don’t, after all I seem to be doing something that is extremely ill advised in their eyes. So here I am, hoping that I have not made a silly mistake. I will be starting my MPA program at Baruch College in the Fall of 2019. I am super pumped and also very nervous about what to expect. Additionally, some time in the summer, I will be starting a new job with the city. Also, super excited for this. I have always been a great studen
  24. Hey folks! Couldn't find a thread for 2019 waitlisted candidates for HKS so wanted to start one. Anyone from MPA/ID, MPP, MPA, MC hear back yet? Any ideas on when we'd get the first update given April 16th was the date to reply to decisions.
  25. So, TL;DR deadline day is coming up for me to choose on Sol Price at SC for my MPA or do my MA IR at NYU. SC will be slightly cheaper, but price isn’t a big factor to me as much as career prospects. From posting over at r/gradschool and a couple other forums it seems like MPA is more in demand and offers more diverse options, but I’m not sure. I want to go into politics longterm, but want to lecture at the uni level in the interim, which would require a PhD. Right now the real hold up is being worried whether or not I’d be able to do a PhD in IR without a masters in the field. Als
