MPPHopeful13 posted a topic in ApplicationsHey all, I am looking to see how likely I am to get into the following schools with the following criteria. I feel like I am fitting in somewhere around the average requirements of most applicants at these schools, with maybe a slightly lower GPA. GPA: 3.3 from a small liberal arts school in Ohio GRE: 161 V and 159 Q with 5.0 Analytical Writing Experience: 3 campaign cycles as an intern/volunteer (since '08), 3 campaign cycles as a paid staff in field management and data analytics; 1 year in nonprofit fundraising; 3 months interning with a lobbying firm in D.C.; Only 2 years of work experience after completing my undergrad (I took a semester off to work on the 2012 Presidential campaign) and volunteered/interned throughout college on various local, state, and national races in digital and organizing related work. I am applying/have applied to the following schools: Duke Sanford (MPP), Chicago Harris (MPP), Syracuse Maxwell (MPP), UT-Austin (MPA), Georgetown McCourt (MPP), NYU Wagner (MPA), OSU John Glenn (MPA), USC Price (MPA), IU SPEA (MPA). Thanks!
Hi all, As the excitement of admissions decisions are waning away, I am trying to grasp the reality of paying for my master's degree. I got into my number one choice for higher education - University of Michigan - but now I am trying to figure out how I am going to pay for a program that doesn't offer assistantships. Any advice moving forward? I've filed my FAFSA, and will have an internship during the two-years I am getting my degree, and I may receive some funding from U of M (but not guaranteed). I would really like to look into scholarships, but I am not sure where to begin. Unfortunately, my family can't really help me out here, and I'm using my Teach For America Americorps award to pay off my undergraduate loans. Thanks!
