  1. Hi all! I could really use your help here. I was luckily admitted to these 3 programs, but im really torn onto which one will be a better fit for my interests. The right MPP would help me get trained on social impact and advanced quantitative skills of course; but specially for a behavioral science career from a public policy point of view( eg : nudge units, behavioral architects, Ideas42, worldbank's eMBeD , etc.) I care mostly about the public policy skills, but i would be so happy to find a match of both interests. Important info: International student, tuition will be sponso
  2. For all those applying to Harvard Kennedy School's Masters of Public Policy(MPP) program. Let us get our conversations going!
  3. Hello to the Grad Cafe community! I have been reading through lots of posts here over the past few weeks and decided to write one of my own to get some advice on a slight dilemma I am facing. To provide some background, I have been out of undergrad for about two years serving at a Federal financial regulatory agency. I am committed to the work I do and am hoping to gain some additional experience needed to move into the policymaking aspect of the area I am in, so I applied to several master's programs in public policy for the upcoming semester. After receiving all my decisions, it turns o
  4. 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.
  5. Has anyone heard anything yet? I got an email today saying to mark the date for the admitted students weekend but I haven't received an acceptance letter or anything. Did this go to everyone?
  6. Hi guys, I figured these decisions would be coming out soon and that we might want to start a thread. Anybody have news yet? I haven't heard anything since they emailed me Feb 16th saying my application was officially under review and they'd get back to me in 4-6 weeks (currently in week 3).
  7. Hello, has anyone heard back from Sciences Po yet?
  8. 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!
  9. Hi all, I recently got accepted to a few programs and wanted to hear any thoughts folks might have. I got accepted to NYU's 1-year MSPP, Carnegie Mellon's 2-year MSPPM-Data Analytics track, and Indiana University's 2-year MPA program. Currently, NYU is most expensive (only got 15% funding), CM is less expensive (got 50% funding), and Indiana is the cheapest (I got 40% funding but the program is very cheap). I'd like a career in public policy analysis and want to invest in data analytics skills that I've been working on in my professional experiences since graduating college. My thought is
  10. Schools/Programs Applying To: Below are the programs that I have applied to for this application cycle: Georgetown-McCourt (April 1 application deadline), GWU-Trachtenburg (Accepted), UVA-Batten (Waitlist), GMU-Schar (May 1 app. Deadline) I was late to finding this forum and after reading more in depth about the MPP programs out there, I’m debating waiting an additional year to apply to other programs that I neglected to include for this application cycle, especially given the competitive nature this year. Those programs I’m considering are: Duke Sanford, Michigan Ford, CMU He
  11. For all those waiting it out
  12. Hi all! Has anyone heard from American about MPP funding? I know they said they might start sending notifications about merit aid at the end of February and I’m curious to know if they have started. Thanks!
  13. Ladies and Gentlemen of the forum, I am new to this, so please excuse my mistakes if any. I am an undergrad in pharma sciences but what i want for my masters is something related to public policy and governance, that topic catches my attention anyday. The pandemic has left me pondering more over how well health graduates with the proper background and training could tackle world wrecking health problems. I have tried exploring quite a few options but most of the public policy schools seem to ask for experience. One school am particularly interested is the GraSPP at
  14. Hello, has anyone heard back from Hertie on their applications?

  16. Waiting on decisions and figured I'd use the time to gather more info. Can you help me evaluate the pros & cons of each program as they pertain to my interests?

  17. Hey there everyone. I am a BSc Economics and Political Science 2020 graduate student, looking to start MPP by 2021 fall. I have to ask what kind of jobs should I look for because the NGO I was working with has shut down without giving me any certificate etc. Any job recommendations are welcomed.
  18. Hoping to get some thoughts on the Hertie School, in particular for mpp: 1) how is it's reputation as present? It was considered upcoming for a while but wanted to know if anyone has an idea about how it's seen now considering it's been around for a bit. 2) how helpful is it for recruitment in Europe? Or is it only those who speak German who have an advantage? 3) how is the quality of teaching and exposure? Thank you!
  19. Hi GradCafe, The forum was of incredible help last year as I applied, so I am happy to give back by providing some casual application help. I expected my package to be weak so I applied to more than enough programs, but was surprised to be admitted to most of them. Feel free to ask me anything. Below are my stats: GPA: <3.1 GRE: 165/167 International, completed undergrad in a U.S. top 20 university. Work experience: 1 year Admitted: HKS, Harris, SAIS, Sanford, Michigan, Georgetown, Penn Fels, CMU...amongst others. Rejected: Goldman, SIPA
  20. I'm in the process of applying to MPP or related programs within the U.S, especially at top-tier programs like Harvard Kennedy School. I plan to pursue a joint MBA/MPP degree. The MPP programs had asked for letters of recommendation (LOR). Does anyone have tips, samples, or ideas of what makes a stellar letter of recommendation for a public policy program (MPP)? So I can guide my recommenders because they've never written a LOR for a public policy program and had asked me for some guidance. Two are within academia and one is my client with a social impact business. TIA!
  21. 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.
  22. Hello there! I'm curious if anyone has attended or is knowledgeable about the MSPP program at Penn's school of social policy and practice. It's not technically an MPP so it isn't ranked by US News, etc., but seems like a comparable curriculum to many MPPs (including quantitative/data analytics heavy MPPs when you look at the Data Analytics track). I'm focused on urban policy and hope to work in policy advocacy so the proximity to the social work school seems like a big plus. Has anyone been through this program or have a sense of how it compares to the usual-suspect MPP programs, especially in
  23. Hey everyone, I'm new to this forum and have never posted in places like this before so I apologise in advance if this is the wrong place for my post. I'm a Canadian student at an okay university in Canada. I would like to pursue a master's degree in IR/global politics/public policy or something along those lines. Ideally, I would like to study in Europe, preferably at LSE. I am also open to applying to other schools like Sciences Po, King's College, and maybe even the Graduate Institute in Switzerland. I have a year of school left and my cumulative GPA is a tad bit under 3.4 but I am hop
  24. 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!!
