  1. As the application season has begun, I felt we should have a thread for prospective applicants for MIA/MPA and other Graduate programs at SIPA (commencing in Fall 2021). We can discuss application related stuff and other other relevant topics here.
  2. Hello world! Has anyone done the video response as part of SIPA's admissions package? I know it's being implemented as of 2017 application cycle, so I am wondering if there are any Spring 2017 candidates that have already done it. Helpful tips, feedback, etc. would be much appreciated!
  3. For all those waiting it out
  4. Hi team! I am admitted to SIPA MPA-DP and SAIS IDev with the same amount of aid which amounts to similar costs of attendance for both. I am trying to decide between the two. I have about 6 years of experience in International development and want to transition into working in sustainable development finance. Based on what I have gathered - SIPA - great for working in sustainability in general with the option to take classes at SUMA, great campus etc. Lots of flexibility in coursework. Older cohort with people coming from more experience background (in the DP
  5. Hi everyone! My decision process has kind of been turned on its head, so I wanted some outside perspective. Just last week, I committed to Johns Hopkins SAIS (MA), where I received a really generous scholarship offer of $80k for the 2 years. However, today Columbia SIPA (MIA) matched the offer and slightly more, so now I am seriously considering it. Within the IR framework, I’ll be concentrating in security/conflict resolution with a further focus on the Middle East. I want to use grad school as a way to open myself up to career opportunities, but want to focus on the diplomatic tra

  8. Hey guys, hope this grad season is faring well with everyone! I just got offers from two of the programmes for the coming year (hopefully the virus outbreak won't affect my plans). If someone could provide some insights into how they compare (in terms course design, career opportunities, how these programmes are perceived in the field), that would super helpful! 1. Oxford Blavatnik School Master of Public Policy 1-year programme 2. Dual Degree Sciences Po Master in Public Policy & Columbia SIPA Master of Public Administration 2-year programme, 1 year in Paris a
  9. Hi all, I've been reading through the threads to get more insights into the programs I've applied to, but figured I'd ask here, in order to get people's opinions on some of the schools I've applied to/heard back from. Thank you so much in advance for your help! Some background: I'm an immigrant, have my undergrad from a top-20 uni in the U.S. Not entirely sure what career I'd pursue, but I've applied to international development as my concentration & hoping to work either in the i-dev sector or in the World Bank/UN. What are the general reputation of the following programs (bot
  10. Hello everyone! I was wondering if there are any PEPM (Columbia SIPA) applicants in this forum. It would be nice to share thoughts about the application process, and share together all the anxiety about the decisions of the admission committee.
  11. ¿Someone have obtained a response about the admission of the PEPM program?
  12. Hi all, I have been lurking on the website for a while and this is my first post. I am applying to MPA/MPP/MA in Intl Affairs programs for 2020 fall but now I am a little lost. I am an Intl student who went to a top US uni (top20) and graduated last year. I have been interested in international affairs and politics for a while (was writer for school politics magazine, did research in IR, etc) but eventually I went into investment banking after graduation. I was not particularly into banking but I guess I did not think about my career paths clearly before getting into finance. One ye
  13. Guys, Now that it’s almost the end of February, I think it’s the right time to ask for more funding at SIPA for the early admits. I had received 80k for 2 years. But coming from a public sector background and planning to go back to the sector, the cost of attendance is still unaffordable for me. I had sent a mail to their financial aid office yesterday to which they replied it won’t be possible to give any more aid that what is already given right now but I can apply for assistantships in the second year. Anyone else tried reaching out?
  14. I’ve been struggling for weeks with the best choice, and would love some input. Choosing between: SIPA (68k), SAIS Europe (45k), ESIA (42.5k), MSFS (59k), SIS (still waiting on funding info) Criteria: alumni network, abundance of internship opportunities, cohort atmosphere, career services, location (preference for big cities) I’m also concerned about debt. After my savings I’m facing a loan somewhere between 40k and 60k depending on the school. How much debt is good debt for a MA in IR? While I would like to work in non-profit, I know it’s not finanacially smart. Ther
  15. Hi all, I am currently having a hard (but sweet) time deciding between these two great schools. I am an international student and hope to stay in the US for at least a year or two. My target employers would be NGO and International Organizations like the UN. And as I know, the international can get a different visa type if working in NGO/IO to stay (not H1B) so it would be nice. I don't know if I should consider more about Harris' s solid quantitative courses and the study atmosphere where social life might not be a large part. The data analytics skills will definitely give me more levera
  16. Hi all. I applied for the 2019 fall and have already heard back from SIPA, SP2, and some others (Sanford $, McCourt $, Wagner, etc). There are still many others to come (SAIS, CIPA, Luskin, etc.). But since my only reach school WWS has basically sent out the offers (while I did not receive one), I think I may make my decision between SIPA's MPA program and UPenn SP2's MS in Social Policy +Data Analytics program (with $). I'm an international applicant and am interested in poverty alleviation or broader development issues. I came right from my undergraduate studies, double-majoring in Eng
  17. Hi all - hoping for some advice on choosing between SIPA's MIA program and SAIS's MA program. I'm interested in studying human rights and conflict prevention/resolution and I'm hoping to work in an advocacy-based NGO after finishing grad school (though I'm also interested in multilateral work or possibly federal gov work under a different administration). I've visited both schools and overall had great impressions of both, so I'm not sure how to make a final decision. My current pro-con list is below, but I'd love to hear others' thoughts on what I should put the most weight on or if ther
  18. Hi everyone, I know admissions decisions are still a long ways away, but I thought it could be helpful to discuss the comparative merits of these great IR and public policy programs. I applied to HKS's MPP, Columbia's MIA, Georgetown's MSFS, WWS's MPA, and SAIS's MA. I also applied to Georgetown's Security Studies Program, but am leaning away from the latter now because of high tuition costs and rumored lack of aid. How do you feel these schools compare to one another, in terms of job prospects, curriculum/course offerings, school culture, academic rigor, faculty? Which would
  19. Hi all, I’ve been lucky enough to be accepted to my top two programs, the Master of Public Administration at Cornell and the MPA- Environmental Science and Policy at Columbia. I am kind of torn as to what to do, as both programs have strengths that seem equally important for me, so I was hoping I could get some advice from a forum I have religiously stalked this entire process ? With the funding I have received, what I have saved, and living expenses factored in, Cornell is about 13k cheaper, but I would be alright paying a little more for the program from Columbia if that was a better op
  20. Hi Everyone! I am applying to HKS, WWS, SIPA, and SFS. Harvard Kennedy School is my dream school, and I wanted to know what you guys think my chances are: GRE: 164 Verbal, 163 Quant, 4.5 AWA Education: NYU Stern School of business, Major: Business (concentration was Marketing). GPA: 3.4 Work Experience: Currently work as a policy research analyst for the NYC Department of Transportation (8 months), worked at Unilever’s Future Leaders program for a year and a half prior this role Non-Profit Experience: Director of a non-profit I joined
  21. Would love to hear what the average GRE score is for Columbia's SIPA. Thanks!
  22. Did a search for "columbia 2018" and didn't find anything, so I thought I'd create a thread! Anyone else send in their deposit?
  23. Hi Guys, Long (long) time lurker first-time poster here. Any input will go a long way in helping me decide which program is best suited to my personal situation. I am an Indian applicant looking to move to the US somewhat long-term . I am a lawyer by training and since graduating from law school I have worked as a policy professional for the past 3 years in not for profit thinktanks in India. My focus areas have been access to health, cybersecurity and judicial reforms, but I am sector and subject agnostic as I enter grad school. I have received admits from the following sch
  24. Heyyyy Guys! Just got admitted to LSE MPA and SIPA'S MPA and MPA-DP. My aim is to work on international development and at global initiatives and agencies (such as UNDP, FAO, USAID,etc). None of them have offered me funding. But, from what I have heard is easier to get student loans and/or second-year funding at SIPA. But, LSE's tuiton fee is significant lowe. But I love Columbia. I am quite confused. Any advice? Anyone on the same boat. Also, I have to decide between the 2 SIPA programs.
  25. Hi! So I recently gained admission to both SIPA (Columbia) and IHEID (graduate institute) for their Masters in International Affairs in Fall 2018. Neither college has given financial aid. So while financials are certainly an issue, they won't dictate where I go to study. I'm hoping that someone who either knows people in both programmes or who has experience with these courses in some way, can share some insights which can help me decide. I'm definitely looking at this from an employability perspective, and am looking to do well in the course. Thanks!
