  1. For all those applying to Harvard Kennedy School's Masters of Public Policy(MPP) program. Let us get our conversations going!
  2. 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.
  3. 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
  4. 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
  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. 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.
  7. For all those waiting it out
  8. Decisions are rolling out. Got a message from the GPS admissions office that my application has been "nominated for admission"! Now I'm just waiting for official communication after review by UC San Diego's Graduate Division. Anyone else got in?
  9. Hi everyone, I am a rising junior at Duke - studying public policy and political science. I'm considering applying to Duke's 4+1 MPP program. I would start the MPP my senior year. I am currently on 100% financial aid as an undergraduate. My concern is whether it make more sense to wait until senior year and attempt to get into a higher ranked program like Kennedy, Ford, Goldman, or SIPA. Or whether I should study for the GRE my junior year and attempt to get into the 4+1 program. Is there an actual difference in the quality of education or career outcomes between these insituti
  10. Hello, everyone. I'm starting the MDiv degree at Harvard this fall, but I'm also interested being dual enrolled in the Kennedy school with an MPP. If anyone has any insight on how to pursue this or what opportunities it may bring, I would really appreciate it!
  11. For all those waiting it out for Oxford
  12. 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.

  13. Hey everyone - I realize it's only April, but I figured I'd get started on the HKS thread for 2019 matriculation. A little about me: I'm a 2010 grad from a competitive small liberal arts college, 2012 masters in city planning from an ivy (both with honors), worked in public finance consulting for three years, now working as a civil servant in a policy office in transportation. I'm active in a few LGBT causes, and have a fellowship with a large, international professional organization that focuses on urban revitalization. I'm taking the GRE in August. I'm attracted to HKS and other MPP pr
  14. 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

  17. Hi all, I just received an offer from HKS MPP program, with no scholarship offered. I am currently debating whether I should take the offer or go for the MA program at SAIS in DC, which provides me a $40k scholarship per year. What are your thoughts? In the long run I am interested in development economics and international affairs. I may do a PhD after graduation as well, but nothing is set yet. I am really keen on to take the MPP offer but 40k per year is no joke.... My family is ok to support the MPP tuition but I feel bad letting them do this. Thanks.
  18. Hi All Newbie here. I am planning to apply for a MPP focussed on Science and Technology Policy / Cyber security policy. I have 11 years of experience and am currently working in the Private sector with a IT consulting company and doing Cybersecurity consulting.Since i have an engineering background, and do not have friends or family that have done an MPP before I am reaching out to you guys to know what are the job prospects upon graduation from a MPP focused on Science and Technology. I am interested to know the following: 1. nature of work - what is the nature of work that gra
  19. Hi everyone! Wanted to kick off a new thread for those of us who are applying to the Hertie School 's MPP or MIA programs for a 2020 start. Hopefully we can share any info, experiences, advice as we go through the process. Happy chatting!
  20. I received offers of admission from UChicago Harris (MSCAPP) and CMU Heinz (MSPPM: DA track), and I'm certain that there are others out there facing the same choice. For what it's worth, Heinz has offered more funding than Harris (once again, I doubt that I'm the only one in this situation). I'm not even sure how to weigh the pros and cons of the two programs. To people who are currently in one of the programs, how do you feel about it? And to those trying to decide between the two options (or held offers from both places in previous years), what factors did you consider?
  21. Hi all, I have been admitted to the Hertie School of Governance starting Sept 2020 and have been offered a scholarship of 25%. I have a research background for a Management consulting firm for about 4+ years. I am confused about the offer since I will have to take a loan for the remaining 75% of the amount and I don't have any German language skills as of yet. As I will be taking a loan if I plan to go, I am very much concerned about its repayment. What are the job prospects and how much time does it take to pay a loan of ~24.5 thousand Euros with an average salary after MPP. L
  22. Hi all, One of my most preferred programs (Harris MPP) has put me on their waitlist. Would anyone with experience in getting off the waitlist for MPP programs be able to provide insights as to if there's anything I can do to increase my chances? Thanks ahead.
  23. Hello, hive mind! I wanted to know the pros and cons of going for a lesser known STEM program (UC Berkeley Master's in Development Practice) v/s a better known non-STEM MPP/MPA (e.g. SAIS, Harris, SIPA, etc.). I'm not eligible for most scholarships, and the chances of receiving financial aid from either school are quite slim. STEM OPT is useful for international students who could potentially accelerate their career by working with reputed organisations in the States for a few years - and help in paying off education loans a lot sooner (compared to working in my home country post-Master's). Ho
  24. Anyone else going to the Admitted Student Day event on March 26th and 27th?
  25. 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.
