  1. Financial generosity and aid is one of the most important factors that we consider when we apply and make our decisions. I am hoping to start a thread where we post about programs that give out generous funding. This thread will be resourceful to the future applicants who want to know about the schools and their aid policy. Let's compile it in this format - School and Program: Financial aid info: (for example, based on what you've heard about the program and what you've seen. info like only 1-2 people gets full ride, everyone gets minimum 15k, everyone gets full ride etc. of that sor
  2. Hi all! Surprised to see that there is no thread for Oxford BSG's MPP this year (I wonder why). Starting this for all those waiting for the results.
  3. I'm a current MA student at Stanford's International Policy Studies (IPS) program and want to extend a warm congratulations to admitted students! I know decision-making can be tough; I remember being in your shoes last year. If you or any potential applicants for next year have any questions, you can post them here. I can also put you in touch with a current student whose interests align with yours.
  4. Hi can anybody suggest me masters course with dual degree in economics and public policy?
  5. Hi all! I could really use your help here. I was luckily admitted to these 3 programs, but im really torn onto which one will be a better fit for my interests. The right MPP would help me get trained on social impact and advanced quantitative skills of course; but specially for a behavioral science career from a public policy point of view( eg : nudge units, behavioral architects, Ideas42, worldbank's eMBeD , etc.) I care mostly about the public policy skills, but i would be so happy to find a match of both interests. Important info: International student, tuition will be sponso
  6. 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
  7. Hi, Does anyone here have any experience with the Northwestern MPPA program (online version)? I have been working with the UN for the last 5+ years mostly in Programme/Project Management. My goal is to transition into a policy role, not necessarily in the UN but at a more policy focused organization. I am quite interested in it as it merges both policy and admin together - which is quite rare. The courses seem interesting and relevant with a good focus on analytical skills. Another +ve is the online option so I can continue to work. Compared to other online programs I also fou
  8. I was wondering if anyone had any input about deciding between Georgetown and Carnegie Mellon's data science/public policy programs. I've gotten into both and am having a hard time deciding between the two - it seems like the Heinz program is more intense which could be either a positive or negative - I know I want to best prepare myself for a career but also want to be able to have time for a job/social life. I've seen that McCourt is a little lower ranked than Heinz but has the benefit of being in D.C., which appeals to me. Does anyone have any thoughts?
  9. I have always wanted to go into education policy/the government side of education. I have bachelor degrees in both Elementary Education and History. I know I want a degree in Education Policy to move forwards in working as an analyst or a lobbyist. I'm currently a full-time teacher and am trying to decide which will be the best professional route for me: Ed.D. or a Ph.D. Any advice, personal experience, information is greatly appreciated!
  10. Has anyone heard anything yet? I got an email today saying to mark the date for the admitted students weekend but I haven't received an acceptance letter or anything. Did this go to everyone?
  11. I am having trouble deciding between the MPP program at UCSD or at University of Maryland. If anyone has any personal insight or suggestions, I would greatly appreciate it! Thanks!
  12. I got conditionally accepted (need to complete a calculus course from any institution) to Columbia SIPA for MPA without any financial aid so far. I got the decision on March 16th and in it they said more information about cost and financial aid would be given in a few weeks. Still waiting! I want to pursue a Policy PhD after this. I am a 36 old Canadian (originally from Bangladesh but now a Canadian citizen), married (my wife is working too), have a 6 year old son, and have a house mortgage to pay. I have an MBA from Canada, do not have any previous student loans and have been working in the n
  13. I have got admits from both the programs. CMU is offering 40K in scholarship while UPenn is offering 24K. The cost comes down to almost the same amount.(60K CMU vs 50K UPenn) I'm confused on the following parameters - 1. Job prospects being an international student 2. Coursework rigour and the skills I would get 3. UPenn has a internship in the last semester and seems to have a lot of opportunities in Philly. 4. Networking opportunities My primary aim to apply to these courses was to shift towards a career in public policy or related areas. Thank you in adv
  14. I've secured admissions at Hertie School of Governance and Willy Brandt School of Public Policy (both for the MPP) and now I'm confused about choosing. Of course, the cost for Hertie is a lot and will be significant challenge to pay, but I would love to hear what you guys have to say
  15. Hi all, I recently got accepted to a few programs and wanted to hear any thoughts folks might have. I got accepted to NYU's 1-year MSPP, Carnegie Mellon's 2-year MSPPM-Data Analytics track, and Indiana University's 2-year MPA program. Currently, NYU is most expensive (only got 15% funding), CM is less expensive (got 50% funding), and Indiana is the cheapest (I got 40% funding but the program is very cheap). I'd like a career in public policy analysis and want to invest in data analytics skills that I've been working on in my professional experiences since graduating college. My thought is
  16. Hi all! Has anyone heard from American about MPP funding? I know they said they might start sending notifications about merit aid at the end of February and I’m curious to know if they have started. Thanks!
  17. Hi, I was recently admitted to the MPP at Sciences Po in the Digital, New Technology and Public Policy stream. Now I had applied to the course because I really liked the courses listed on the website, the policy lab component, and of course, Paris. However, I have been reading up on this forum about the University, and that has left a bittersweet taste. I do not speak French, but the course I am accepted to is taught entirely in English. From the posts on the Forum, I feel that the university's career services aren't too friendly for the international students, the administration is

  19. Ladies and Gentlemen of the forum, I am new to this, so please excuse my mistakes if any. I am an undergrad in pharma sciences but what i want for my masters is something related to public policy and governance, that topic catches my attention anyday. The pandemic has left me pondering more over how well health graduates with the proper background and training could tackle world wrecking health problems. I have tried exploring quite a few options but most of the public policy schools seem to ask for experience. One school am particularly interested is the GraSPP at

  21. I deferred my admission to a public policy program last year. However, over the year I also learned about another program at the same school. If I reapply, do I lose my deferred admission?
  22. Hi everyone! I really want to understand how different international affairs and public policy, as graduate courses, are. I am planning to pursue master's in either of the courses but haven't really been able to understand how different the career paths are for each. From what I've learned so far, it seems public policy focuses much more on quantitative skills like statistics, data and economics than IA. Moreover, some people have remarked that IA is too general or vague, especially in terms of profession. It would be really helpful if any of you could share your own experience.
  23. I was wondering if anyone knows anything about how the data science/analytics + public policy Masters programs compare with each other and how they're regarded in the policy world (esp. social policy)? I recently got into the Harris MSCAPP (Computational Analysis and Public Policy) program at UChicago and it's my top choice, but I'm also considering applying to some other programs (below). Let me know what you think! Georgetown McCourt - M.S. Data Science for Public Policy CMU - M.S. Public Policy Management: Data Analytics Track UPenn - M.S. Social Policy + Data Analysis
  24. Hi GradCafe, The forum was of incredible help last year as I applied, so I am happy to give back by providing some casual application help. I expected my package to be weak so I applied to more than enough programs, but was surprised to be admitted to most of them. Feel free to ask me anything. Below are my stats: GPA: <3.1 GRE: 165/167 International, completed undergrad in a U.S. top 20 university. Work experience: 1 year Admitted: HKS, Harris, SAIS, Sanford, Michigan, Georgetown, Penn Fels, CMU...amongst others. Rejected: Goldman, SIPA
  25. Hey there, I'm curious about y'alls thoughts on degrees like Columbia's QMSS and UChicago's MACSS as compared to programs like UChicago MSCAPP, and CMU Heinz MSPPM-DA. The classes seem to be really similar between both sets of programs, but I'm getting the sense that QMSS and MACSS are more suited towards people looking to go on to PHDs, does that resonate with current/former students? I'm hoping to attend a program that sets me up to be a practitioner immediately after, and don't intend on pursuing a PHD. It also seems like the MSCAPP and MSPPM-DA can be encompass more city plannin
