  1. Hello Everyone! I am hoping to get some thoughts on a few grad programs I have been admitted to for International Affairs / Human Rights. I would so appreciate any insights people have! Money is a huge factor. I graduated undergrad with no debt, and have about 30k in savings, but I know I don't want to take on a ton of debt since non-profit work isn't particularly lucrative. I also assume about 12k / year will be needed for housing. My options: -Fletcher / Tufts, MGA ($9k scholarship) full program cost is ~80k -BU Pardee, MAIA ($24k scholarship - waiting to find out about a full tuition FLAS scholarship) full program cost is ~105k -Middlebury Institute, MIPD ($40k scholarship) full program cost is ~85k - University of Minnesota, MA Human Rights (waiting on FA offer) -Korbel School, MA Intl Human Rights ($16k scholarship) -IHEID, MA in Development Studies (no scholarship) full program cost is only ~18k Waiting on McGill and Northeastern. I was wondering what people have heard about the MGA program at Fletcher? I know it is a first-year program, but at the moment it is my top choice. It is much more affordable than the MALD (although still SO expensive) and allows you to focus deeply on one specialization rather than studying 2 specializations less in-depth. I applied to the program as a full-time student, but am hoping to switch my status to part-time to make it more financially viable. I am slightly nervous about one aspect, which is that parts of Fletcher's alumni community publicly posted about their outrage of the creation of the MGA program, as they saw it as "cheapening" their MALD degrees. I see it as expanding accessibility, but I'm not sure how this could impact my relationships / job prospects with the alumni community, which is one of Fletcher's big draws. Finally, does anyone have any advice on appealing financial aid offers? I really love fletcher, but I don't know if its worth taking out a 50k loan for this program, if I'm not able to work part-time throughout. Thank you so much for any insights you have!
  2. I have been accepted into four schools thus far (Korbel, Pardee, Elliott, and SIS...but threw SIS out of the running), and need different perspectives on what I should be looking for in these masters programs. Assume money is not a major factor. Have yet to hear back from Fletcher, SAIS, SIPA, and SFS. So far I have been mapping out which classes I would be taking under the respective programs, and I am quite satisfied with each of the three. The things I am looking for in a program are: Jobs with security clearance in the area Dual concentration abilities Russian Language Boren Scholarship awardee history Curriculum is policy/ case oriented rather than theoretical Professors are practitioners in their field Successful placement rate into the Intelligence Community What else should I take into consideration? Does anyone have information to offer? I have spoken with students, alumni, and professors who all love their respective schools. Thanks in advance for all those who reply. Feel free to message me if necessary. -Frosty

  4. Hi Everyone. I haven't been able to find much on people applying to the phd program in public policy at Pardee RAND. I see from their site that the average GRE scores for admitted students are mid-600s for verbal and mid-700s for math, but does anyone have any other data on admitted students (like typical work/research experience, number of people with advanced degrees,etc)? Also, is anyone familiar with the program or the research coming out of RAND? What is it known for (besides being quantitative in nature) and what is it not good at? What is the student satisfaction with the program? Any info/perspectives would be greatly appreciated! Thanks.
