  1. It's almost priority deadlines for Yale F&ES, Nicholas school, SEAS, and others. I saw there was a 2019 topic on env management and policy, so I thought I'd start one for this admissions cycle. Let's help each other out, commiserate (hopefully not), and (sustainably) celebrate together! For all applicants to MEMs, environmentally-focused MPPs/MPAs, etc
  2. Hello all! I hope everyone has had a good application season for those who applied this year. I'll be applying for MPP programs this fall (to enroll in 2021). I'm mostly planning to apply to California programs (pretty much all of them - all the UCs plus USC and a few others). I studied Chemical Engineering, so I have a rigorous quantitative background, but I haven't taken any economics (other than a non-AP high school class). Is it worth the tuition to take an online microeconomics class before applying? It's one of the only things I've noticed is listed as a prereq, but most scho
  3. Is there anyone on this forum that has a PhD in educational policy? If so, what do you do in terms of a job? I'm interested in educational policy and debating on whether I should apply to a PhD program but I'm not sure if it's worth it considering that it might be very competitive to get a job afterwards(that is, working for the Georgia DOE or working as a college professor). I would like to talk to someone who already has it and weigh the pros and cons. Thanks in advance!
  4. Hi everyone! I got accepted to both SFU and UoT for the masters of public policy program. I’m having a hard time deciding between the programs. I think my quality of life will be better in Vancouver as my friends and family are here, but I know UoT is more prestigious and I’m not sure if this will help with my future goals. In the long term, I’d like to change the policy around mental health services in communities and in prisons. Any advice??
  5. Hi all, Does anyone have a successful Horowitz Foundation grant application that they would be willing to share? The word limit is killing me.
  6. Hi, I'm an international student with an interest in policy. My end goal is to become a consultant for government policy, and I was wondering whether looking into internships in US government entities is reasonable or a waste of my time. Could anyone help me on this?
  7. Hi all, Is a score of 307 too low for funding consideration and/or admission? I am not great at standardized tests which is why I am debating retaking it. 5.5 Writing 153 Q 154 V My undergraduate GPA is 3.33 (3.60 in my major). Schools I am applying to: Michigan (Ford), Duke (Sanford), and Chicago (Harris). Thank you.
  8. Happy Sunday! I am preparing to submit my MPP application at the University of Michigan - Ford School. I am currently finalizing the Employment/Work Experience section of the online application. I was wondering if anyone has any advice on whether volunteer / extracurricular involvement should be included in this section? It seems Ford is primarily looking for paid employment? For additional context, I am almost five years removed from undergrad but have remained fairly active in different boards and nonprofit organizations since that time. This information is included in my resume

  10. 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
  11. 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 thi
  12. 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 f
  13. Hi All, Haven't seen any thread dedicated to TPP 2018 yet. So if anybody has any news, please let me know. Regards,
  14. I have been accepted to the Engineering and Public Policy (EPP) PhD program at Carnegie Mellon and the Energy and Resources Group (ERG) Masters/PhD track at Berkeley, both fully funded with similar stipends. I am interested in researching how policy can influence the effect that renewable energy integration has on the power grid and electricity markets, with a focus on real world applicability. Both seem like great programs and I have no idea how I can decide between them. Any thoughts?
  15. I am in purgatory waiting for a decision on masters programs at Maryland, George Mason, Missouri, Colorado, and Georgetown. The programs are in Public Administration, Public Policy, and Public Affairs. Has anyone else applied for a program at one of these schools and heard back? If not, let’s play the waiting game together!
  16. I’m still waiting to hear back from Duke’s University Program in Environmental Policy - through the Nicholas School. I’ve seen rejections from the program on the results board in early Feb and their website says they will provide decisions by mid-February but I haven’t received anything and there have been no changes made to my portal. I haven’t seen anyone else posting about this program and was hoping to connect with anyone else who applied to I can just know this silence is a soft rejection and move on. Thank you!!
  17. Hello Gradcafe, Struggling with a good problem to have. Got admitted to Yale's School of Forestry (FES) as well as University of Michigan's School of Natural Resources and the Environment (SNRE). Yale degree is Masters of Environmental Management; Michigan is Masters of Science. My research interests are renewable energy, green chemistry, arctic climate policy, and life cycle assessment. Both gave me equivalent financial packages. Visited UM before visit day and Yale at the open house. I'm torn about which to choose. Part of me feels like it would be silly to turn down Yale because
  18. Hey everyone! I've been browsing through this site the last couple of months, but this is my first time actually posting here, so I hope I'm posting in the right category. I'm beginning to research some Master's in Public Policy Programs, and I'm a little lost. So here is a little bit of relevant background information that might be helpful to understand my situation. I'm in my last year of undergrad, and I graduate in May 2018. I'm a psychology major and biology minor. I have a 3.977 GPA. I was planning on pursuing a career in neuropsychology for most of my undergraduate career, but then I s
  19. I've been applying to schools for fall 2018 admission into statistics master's programs with a focus on environmental statistics. I've nearly decided all the schools I will apply to but am trying to add one more. I've tried to apply to a bunch of schools across the spectrum of program rankings and was wondering if anyone could help me decide if I should add one more safety program or a more middle of the pack program given my profile and schools I've applied to. GRE: 162 quant, 162 verbal, 5 writing GPA: 3.30/4.0 Undergrad majors in economics and statistics Schools I've ap
  20. Guys, have you beard about Georgetown University's brand new program - Master's in Educational Transformation? It is very hands on and looks perfect for practioners like myself. I will be applying this year. http://edtransform.georgetown.edu/
  21. Hi, I am an international student and I plan to apply for Policy PhD programs. Also, I plan to apply for a few masters (stats/econ) programs as a back up if I do not get into a PhD program. Schools applying: Geographical preference: Colorado/Boulder/Denver area (low cost of living for me), however, I will apply to other schools throughout USA. A very preliminary PhD list I have includes: PhD Pol Sci Colorado State (Environmental policy focus) PhD Energy Economics Colorado School of Mines PhD Environmental studies (interdisciplinary) University of Colorado Boulde
  22. Heyya! I've been recently accepted at MGIMO (Moscow State Institute of International Relation) into an international program. I thought it would be nice to find other people to get to know each other before we come together in September :). Is there anyone? Either accepted or already well into their Masters' programs, Russian or English or dual or whatever? I'd LOVE to hear from you
  23. Hi all, I was wondering if anyone here has applied/been accepted to a PhD in international education policy without a master's degree? A little about me: Graduated from my school's honors college: 3.7 Completed an honors thesis Full-time research coordinator for 1+ year Hopefully, will have a publication or two by August Will have great letters of rec! Upcoming Fulbright grant (2017-2018) ESL tutor for 3 years Volunteer for a girls' school in Tanzania 4 years of undergraduate research Teaching assistant, wor
  24. HI all, Does anyone have any insight into the London School of Hygiene in Tropical Medicine's Global Health Policy program? I have done my research and was actually accepted into the program. It is entirely through distance education with an option to go to London and study at the school for a 6 week blended-learning option. There is an option for a project at the end, otherwise known as a thesis. I work full-time as a research assistant so this masters would allow me the time to build my professional career as well as my academic. Apparently, LSHTM has an outstanding reputatio
  25. Hi Folks, Has anyone heard from Ryerson lately for MPAP? April 25th and I still haven't heard anything. I've been accepted into my back-up school but heart is set on Ryerson. Has anyone else not heard back? Has Ryerson given out any rejection letters? There is no decision made on my file so I'm freaking out a bit. Should I just accept that I'm not getting in? Any info/help would be appreciated. Thanks!
