I'm in the process of selecting which school in the greater Washington, DC area to undertake a master's in public policy degree at. I've been working full-time here since 2016 and plan on continuing to work 9-5 for the next three years while I am completing my MPP. I've been accepted into all 5 schools I've applied and for now have them ranked as: 1) Georgetown 2) George Washington 3) George Mason 4) American 5) Maryland Georgetown and George Washington are extraordinarily expensive, but I think they have the best curricula and flexibility for part-time students. Any thoughts/experience/advice from the forum on these schools?
I recently got accepted to George Mason Schar, American and GW Elliott. American offered me funding, but Mason and Elliott did not offer me any. I'd like to attend Elliott especially, but I can't go to Elliott sans funding. I read on a previous thread that in some instances, it is possible to negotiate with some admissions offices to get funding. Anyone here have experience with this sort of thing? How'd you go about doing it?
