  1. Hi everyone! This is my first post on gradcafe after lurking for a while, because I really need advice. I've been admitted to both SIS and SIPA, for very similar programs (the SIS program I was admitted to closely matches my chosen SIPA concentration). SIS gave me a good amount of merit aid and an assistantship, and SIPA gave me nothing. My initial reaction is to go with American. I was admitted a while ago, so I've been going to various admitted student events, and I've had great experiences with all of them--I love their mission and the specific academic program, and it seems
  2. From what I've researched online this question seems to be popular so I thought should see what everyone thinks. I applied for the 2019 fall semester and am still waiting to hear back from SAIS, SIPA, and MSFS but I was recently accepted into both the Elliott School's MA program of International Affairs as well as SIS's MA in International Affairs: Comparative and Regional Studies program. I received a decent funding package from the Elliott School but am still waiting to hear back on funding from SIS. I wanted to reach out to everyone here and get your thoughts about either school. I've s
  3. 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?
  4. Hello! I'm currently an undergrad living in Texas, and am in the process of transferring to a 4 year University. I I came here for advice because I'd like to get my Masters/Undergrad in the same place if possible, and I'd like to transfer somewhere that offers a 5 year MIA program. I understand this does limit my options, especially in Texas, because if I understand correctly the Bush School is the only school that offers a 5 year MIA program in Texas. I'm looking for an accelerated program because I am using the GI Bill, and there are only so many "months" on it that you can use before
  5. Hey all, I'm going into my masters for IA/IR straight out of undergrad. I've narrowed it down to 3 choices: The Elliott School at GW, SIS at American, and the Maxwell School at Syracuse. My issue is that I know all of the benefits that being in DC would bring: networking, internships, etc. However, neither GW nor American offered me any funding, and Maxwell offered me enough to make my tuition for the entire program $42k, compared to GW and AU w/o funding being $130k an $120k, respectively. Originally I was leaning towards GW, but can I responsibly go into potentially $80k or so worth of
  6. Figured I'd start a thread for American. Applying for the MA in International Affairs (Global Government, Politics, and Security), but also torn between that and IPCR. There isn't a spot in the application for a Statement of Purpose... do we not have to write one for consideration to American SIS?
  7. Hi all. So, I was hoping someone could answer some of the IR program questions I have about SIS, SAIS and the UCSD GPS program. Among all three, SAIS undoubtedly has the best all around reputation, and strong training in economics and quantitative analysis. But, from what I've heard so far, unless you're a really outstanding applicant, it's pretty hard to get funding, plus TA positions are few and far in between (my impressions from various personal research). On the other hand, there's American University, located in DC... does anyone know about how quantitatively rigorous this program is?? I
  8. Hey everyone, I'm applying straight out of undergrad for a masters in IR/IA. I'm applying to several programs, but my goal is to wind up in DC and my top three choices are JHU's SAIS, GW's Elliott School, and AU's SIS. My field of focus would be European/Eurasian studies, and while SAIS has the biggest name it's econ focus scares me a bit which is why I think GW and AU might be better fits (specifically AU because I could do a concentration in identity, ideology, and nationalism, which is what I'm writing a thesis on). I'm going to post some of my stats and if any of you could give you

  10. I was accepted into SIPA, Tufts, SAIS, SIS, and CIR. ALL of the schools have offered generous funding. SIPA offered me the most by far: over $67k in funding for the 2 years plus an International Fellowship. SAIS offered full funding for the first semester in Bologna. I'll email to ask about 2nd year funding. Tufts gave me over $40k for 2 years, SIS & CIR gave me 1/2 off tuition waiver. Any of these options would require some debt, which is fine. I'm not risk averse. I'm just trying to find the best option. I am interested in terrorism and security studies; I alread
  11. My application status for American University is still pending. I've seen scores and scores of people getting their decisions since late February. I've been in contact with AU for about thee weeks now and every time they say "give it a few days." I'm slowly losing hope. I just don't know what else to do or say or whaaaaat. AU is my top choice but are the ones slowly crushing my soul.
  12. I was recently admitted to both SIS (International Development Management) and SAIS Bologna (International Development) and I am having a hard time making a decision. I know that SIAS has a stronger reputation and the idea of spending a year in Italy sounds amazing, but it is much more financially prudent for me to go to SIS. Anyone else have similar issues?
  13. Hello, I was wondering if anyone had more info about the Development Management program at SIS. I can't seem to find much beyond what is on the SIS webpage. Nothing on alumni or anything. It seems like a very interesting program. Anyone here go attend?
  14. So my whole plan was to go to law school for international humanitarian law, etc. I love Washington College of Law (American U) and Ive been accepted to their dual degree with SIS. I haven't done a lot of research about the reputation of SIS but it seems like its really solid. I have the option of just pursuing the Masters portion if I want too, so I am considering that because of how expensive law school is and the legal market.. but I would appreciate it if any past or current applications can enlighten me on SIS. Do they place well internationally? Is the degree *really* recognizable abroad
  15. Hello all, I'm new to the site, and wanted to get people's opinions on a question. I was admitted to SHU's Whitehead School but was rejected from Elliot, SIS, and presumably will not get into SFS. I am thinking about deferment for a year so that I could improve my application but first I wanted to get opinions on why I didn't get admitted to the school in the first place. The easy answer would be my low undergraduate GPA, but when I brought that issue up with the advisors, they said that since I was a science major, they would look primarily at my non-science courses/courses that wou
