  1. Hey guys, the final deadline for the MPP application was 25th January and while we wait for the decision, let us connect here and get the conversation going. Surprisingly this is the 1st thread for Oxford BSG MPP. Thanks.
  2. Hi everyone, I am considering some institutions for the next application cycle (Fall 2019), and I came across a PhD program offered by The New School. The program is the Public and Urban Policy PhD. Does anyone have any experience with The New School? It looks like funding is scarce and tuition is high but the alumni seem to have pretty great careers in social research and academia. How is this school's reputation nationally or on the east coast? is it comparable to a private school in the west coast like USC or Pepperdine? or lesser known? thanks in advanced for input.
  3. Hey all! I applied for the MPP program on October 1st and am (im)patiently awaiting an answer from Hertie, as this is by far my top choice. I know it's really early in the season, but has anyone else applied yet? So curious when we'll start getting responses!
  4. I have gotten into three schools so far for public policy: Georgetown, University of Maryland, and American. All these school's rankings are similar so I am having a hard time distinguishing between them (they are also all in DC) except for the price tag. Tuition follows: Georgetown- $50,000/yr (have not been notified of funding) American- $30,000/yr (received $10,000 each year) Maryland- $45,000 (have not been notified of funding) What do you think is the best option?
  5. Hi, I'd really appreciate if someone who studied Economics in Germany could help me with this! I studied Law with a major in Tax in a top university in Latin America. I've been working in Tax since I was a student. However, instead of pursuing a Master of Laws (LLM) or something similar (law-oriented) I want to shift to a more economics-oriented degree, something related to Tax Policy, or Economic Development. First question: I have around 3-4 years to complete my studies in Germany (including learning German), because my husband will be getting his Phd in Hannover. Would it make sense for me to get "leveled-up" in Economics, enroll in a BA in Economics in some university/college in or near Hannover and then apply for an MA in Economic Development a year later? If so, any recommendations of universities/collegues I could look into (with English courses)? Second question: Any comments on Leuphana University of Lüneburg for someone who would like to work in an international organization in the future? Thank you so much! Any comment is helpful. Rocio
  6. I've gotten offers from Queen's MPA program and Ryerson MA in Public Policy and Administration. I'm leaning towards Queen's; their program is ten months and offers a co op program at the end. Ryerson is 1.5 - 2 years with field study opportunity. Queen's seems like it has a more diverse bank of courses, a lot of which stand out to me. Is anyone out there in a similar position or have experience that could shed light on how the two programs compare? Thanks!
  7. Does anyone know if the Atlantis Dual Degree offers full tuition and stipend for accepted applicants? I am not sure, since one of the years would be spent living in Germany! Also, how competitive these scholarships are? I have an LLB in Law from a country in South America, and an LLM in International Law from American University. I have many years of experience (4) working for a UN agency in my country and internationally.. I also did an internship at an international tribunal in The Hague. I speak english, spanish, portuguese, some french, greek and arabic and I will start learning german full-time.. I haven't taken the GRE yet, but will do it soon.. Any ideas?
  8. I saw a similar question like this on this forum already and the responses encouraged the asker to be specific about their needs. I am happy to study in Europe or America (or somewhere else). My family resides in the Midwest of America. I want to use this degree in public policy work. I am fine with the degree title being combined with some other related focus that I’ve interest in. I am of Iranian desent, speak Farsi, Spanish and English. I want to learn about conflict and history in the Middle East as it pertains to the current conflicts Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria, and Turkey face, among other countries. I want to ultimately help inform the U.S. through public service work after obtaining this degree. Can you guys help me narrow my research down to a few schools that would be a good fit for me? Preferences: a school that provides funding. is in Europe or America. small classses. more papers than tests. thanks
  9. Hi! I'm admitted to both programs with stipends and I am unable to make my decision! My main research interest is Science and Technology policy. Arizona State: - pros: high ranking, great support for students + small cohort, outstanding faculties in my research area (my research area is pretty big part in the department), summer research jobs possible, no winter (but not really great place to live), the department is evolving - cons: tough program (attrition rate for comprehensive exams has been pretty high) George Mason: - pros: safety, comparably easier to proceed to next level (POI said that everyone in past few years have passed the comprehensive exams), good location, good placement - cons: low ranking in general (my research area is not even ranked) I'm struggling in making decision since passing exam in one important part and being in a good school where my research area is mainly focused is another important thing. What do you guys think? I would appreciate any thoughts!
  10. Hello, I have been accepted to Humphrey School of Public Policy, University of Minnesota with a Humphrey Scholarship, and George Washington University with a Global initiative scholarship for a Masters in Public Policy. Both are covering about 67% of my tuition (GW is a more expensive school, though). After talking, to various faculty and students, I get a sense that DC is a better place to study public policy. However, some people are also of the opinion that Humphrey is one of the very well-connected schools. Given the more expensive tuition of GW and higher cost of living in DC, my question is if it is worth paying about 20,000 extra/per year to be in George Washington University over University of Minnesota. I would really really appreciate the feedback. Thanks
