  1. I was recently accepted into the University of Indiana and Northwestern University and could really use some advice on which to pick! Here are the factors I'm considering: Concentration. Hoping to get involved in health policy, specifically Title X or Medicaid, with the ability to learn more about quantitative analysis (love SPEA for its ability to customize the concentration) Flexibility/Placement. Not sure exactly what career I want to do, whether it's to go back into the nonprofit world, government, or private sector (leaning gov't) Location. I have friends in Evanston and
  2. Hi all, I'm starting this thread for anyone who's waiting on applications to doctoral programmes in public policy/public affairs/public administration. I've applied to Duke, Michigan, IU Bloomington, Syracuse, UW Evans, Maryland, NYU and a couple of others. It's been deafening silence so far, so I'm eager to find out if others have started hearing back. I'm an international applicant, so a bit out of the loop.
  3. This is the SOP I wrote for the LBJ School, any feedback is welcomed - please! Running for public office has always been a dream of mine, for as long as I can remember. As I have grown older, the reasoning behind the choice has changed, but my motivation and drive have remained the same. Career politicians, on both sides of the aisle, are so out-of-touch with the average American; Congress spends weeks, months, and multiple sessions in stalemate due to the hyper-partisan climate while American families are struggling due to an ongoing Trade War, senseless gun violence, environmental issue
  4. Hello Everyone, Accepted to: Harris (MPP) Scholarship 15k Evans (MPA) some fellowship UCSD GPS was not considering it until it gave me full scholarship Maxwell, Boston (MAEP), GW: no aid Leaning towards: Harris. for its reputation, courses and faculty members. I want to work in the quant side of policy analysis which Harris is known for. But I will have to take loan to afford it and it is a VERY expensive school Evans: I plan to concentrate on policy analysis for MPA so I can study courses I am interested in without breaking the bank I have never
  5. 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
  6. Hey Y'all, For those of you who applied to Brown University's Watson Institute of Public Affairs' MPA program 2018 Have you heard anything back with regards to admission status and funding? I applied during the regular decision deadline (February 23, 2018) and I have yet to hear back from them. This despite that the program stating admission decisions would be sent out in Mid March. Should I attempt to contact the department regarding the status of my application or should I wait it out? I believe the website states April 15th is the commitment to accept admission deadline (THIS SUN
  7. Hello, all! I'm deciding on an MPA program, and I have it narrowed down to Brown and UNC Chapel Hill. I'm honestly totally split, and have no idea what to do. I'd really appreciate thoughts from others. The situation is that Brown is 1 year and UNC is 2, but UNC is still much, much cheaper. UNC is ranked a good bit higher, but Brown has the name and more of a global focus (which is my interest). I'm most likely interested in working in the nonprofit sector, and Brown's program would be better for that, but I'm having trouble reconciling that with the high cost of tuition. The problem is t
  8. Anyone accepted to the MPP program at Trachtenberg and planning on enrolling? I got in, but it looks like I won't be getting any funding and I'm having a difficult time deciding if it will be worth the cost.
  9. Dear Gradcafe community, As an international student, I can not afford to study at the US on my own funds. So I looked towards other means of funding and I have secured the Fulright award in a second tier policy program for 2018. HOWEVER, there is a big downside to Fulbright - grantees have (and I've made it bold to show that staying in the US is simply not an option legally) to return immediately to their home country right after the program ends. This means the US job market is off for me. Because of this (I really, really want to gain professional work experience in the US), I was cons
  10. Hey, guys! I was hoping to find someone interesting in trading their SOP, especially for a public affairs/government related program. Let me know!
  11. Hi all! I am applying this fall to a couple of MPP/MPA programs in the USA: Harris, UCLA, Columbia, Ford UMich, LBJ UTexas, but I am a little bit concerned on my GRE performance as I am moving between fields and I have no prior quantitative preparation. I am taking the test in two weeks but I believe my scores will be something like V:150 - Q:140-145 I would like to know if someone has been accepted to a competitive school with low GRE scores? If yes, please share your scores as well as your schools! I appreciate your comments, best regards!
  12. I am applying to PhD programs in Public Affairs this upcoming cycle and am beginning to write my statement of purpose. I was initially under the impression from reading past posts that most folks write a base essay and tweak it slightly for every school (for the why Michigan/Duke/Indiana University etc... section). However, after browsing school websites they seem to be asking for totally different essays. For Example: UT Austin: Broken up into two essays 1 - Please address your medium to long-term career goals and how a doctorate will assist in achieving those goals. There ar
  13. Hi- Are there any PhD applicants in public policy/public affairs/policy analysis here?? Where have you guys all applied? Has anyone got an admission offer yet?
  14. Hey folks, So I don't want to be all technical distinguishing the difference between public policy/affairs/administration and having them all in separate brackets. My main point is the rankings here doesn't necessarily make all the sense in the world. Georgetown #15? University of Washington #8 (I know people whom graduated from here unemployed or underemployed for more than a year)? Fletcher unranked (thought this was one of the best)? So what do you folks think are the top 10 schools for policy in our country, and of course why? I'd put a strong correlation with employment post gr
  15. Have you heard back at all? They say decisions should be out by March 1st, I haven't heard anything and it is driving me insane. The status on the system is "no decision". I am thinking maybe they lost my application altogether and are just being nice and reassuring to everyone in emails.)) I'd emailed one of the professors three weeks ago, and got a response asking if I'd already submitted my application, for my resume and whether I'd want to visit the campus for a talk. I replied Yes Yes Yes but never heard back, and even though I did send a cautious follow-up (something like, if you
  16. Hey everybody, for some reason Ibelieve that the majority of users of this forum are applying to PP/PA programs. I'm just curious about this and wanted to conduct a survey I might have forgotten one or two categories; just tried to make it as generic as possible!
