  1. Posted this on a different forum, but posting here also. Hey, so I'm having a hard time choosing between Tufts MALD, Columbia MIA, and George Washington SPS. I was hoping someone could give me some advice after hearing my reasoning + pros & cons because I feel stressed with the upcoming enrollment deposit deadlines. Thank you in advance~ Context About Me - I have a fellowship that offers me financial assistance, 2 great internships with the government, and a job straight after graduation in the government. So, technically I don't HAVE to be in DC because I have that fellow
  2. Hi all, Looking to talk to people who have been offered the Robertson Fellowship at any of the partner schools (UMD School of Public Policy, UCSD GPS, Tufts Fletcher, Texas A&M Bush School, Syracuse Maxwell School) and/or any current/former students who were Robertson Fellows. I was recently offered this fellowship at SU (!!) and I know the general details (an amazing package, obviously), but formal notification and getting connected with current Fellows have been delayed probably due to COVID-19 (understandably).
  3. Hi all, I have been offered admission to Simon Fraser University with a good funding package. I have heard back from Tufts as well and will receive the offer soon. I know that funding at Tufts isn't very good. However, they have a good placement record. The placement record (link) at SFU is also decent, but it doesn't have as many big names as the Tufts record. I'm confused about where I should go. AOI: Philosophy of medicine, philosophy of mind Any suggestions about what I should do? Thanks
  4. Hi Grad Cafe. I'm exploring the possibility of applying to a Masters in International Relations program after being out of school for a bit. I've been looking at Tufts' Fletcher School's MALD and Georgetown's M.S. in Foreign Service as ideal programs for my career goals. However, I was looking at how both schools have a foreign language proficiency. I was a language minor in college with three years of Japanese study. I still study it lightly but I am wondering about how intensive the examinations are, particularly the oral examinations, so I can figure out a study regime for preparation if I
  5. Hi! I got accepted to the following programs (all one year) and I can't decide! 1. Master of Arts (MA), The Fletcher School, Tufts University 2. Master of International Public Policy (MIPP), SAIS, Johns Hopkins University 3. Master of Advanced Studies in International Affairs (MAS-IA), GPS, UCSD 4. MSc International Strategy and Diplomacy, LSE My interests are IR, strategy, and security. When I consider location, I think UCSD is attractive but Fletcher and SAIS network are strong! LSE also has a very good program. I don't have to worry about scholarships becau
  6. Hi! So the deadline for deciding programs is the end of this week (AH) and I’m still super torn between Tufts and DU for the EdS degree. I should have posted something earlier but didn’t actually know about this forum until recently. I’m living abroad so wasn’t able to attend either interview day. I have a full ride at DU (got about 8k a year at tufts) and Denver seems like a great place to live but I’m a bit wary of the program’s quality-can anyone weigh in? Or could maybe compare Tufts to DU? Thank you thank you!!
  7. Hello, I want to work at UN/ government related positions after studying international relations/affairs or security. I would greatly appreciate it if I could get help choosing an appropriate school considering employment rate, prestige, and network. Thank you all very much in advance! Schools I got accepted into: 1) Fletcher (MALD) 2) GWU-ESIA (International Affairs) 3) DU - Josef Korbel (International Security/Relations) - 30k scholarship 4) Penn State - SIA (International Affairs)-25k scholarship
  8. Hello Everyone! I have an offer from Cornell for their MPS program (One-year program contains IT area and social system area), an offer from Tufts for their MS CS program and an offer from UMass for their MS CS. My undergraduate major is biostatistics so I don' t have a solid background of computer science. I plan to be a software development engineer after graduate. Cornell is pretigious but I am afraid of one-year is too short to be ready for the job hunting. UMass campus is rural but their CS program is highly-ranked. Tufts has good location and good reputation b
  9. Hey guys haven't seen any Fletcher thread so started this one I applied on Nov.15h just in time for the deadline. Checking my email every day even though i know its too soon. Little bit info of myself: I am an international student and have a PolSci and IR major from US public university, graduated in May2017, currently working in my home country. Last Year i applied to NYU and BU while i was a college senior and got into their MA programs however there was no scholarship so i declined both the offer. Good Luck to all of you
  10. Hey any one here applied to Fletcher School MALD'18 Fall Early Decision Deadline?
  11. Has anyone recently applied to the Map Your Future program at Fletcher? If so, what did your profile look like and do you have any important tips to offer? Appreciate the help!
  12. Greetings, I was wondering if anyone would be kind enough to help me understand what might be the differences between art history MA programs of Boston University, NYU (IFA), Tufts, and Columbia. I was accepted to all of them except for Columbia, which I am still waiting on. My primary concern is with the strengths of the programs and I would like to focus on Western pre-modern art and architecture. My first inclinations are towards Columbia and IFA due to program description, location and school notoriety (which I admit is superficial). Tufts and BU are clearly considered to be very
  13. Hi everyone! I've recently received admissions notifications for grad school and decided to turn to The Grad Cafe for help and/or input in deciding which school I should attend. Hopefully i get some feedback soon, considering the deadline is on April 15! Anyway, a little background on myself. I am a 23 year old female person from Malaysia. Got my Bachelor's in International Relations from Boston University (Class of 2015) and am currently working as a researcher at a foreign policy think tank in my country. Hoping to go back to grad school this Fall 2017. I applied to all IR MA programs,
  14. Hello, would appreciate thoughts regarding graduate school decisions/comments from people in the same boat. Interested in the Middle East, development, and human rights. I have State Dept. experience and did some volunteer NGO work in Lebanon. Accepted to: Middlebury Institute of International Studies at Monterey - International Policy and Development MA program ($14k fellowship over 2 years) George Washington University - Middle East Studies MA program, concentration in International Affairs and Development ($5k/year fellowship) - waiting on another fellowship that would fully

  16. I've been accepted into Brown, Brandeis, BU, Lynch, HGSE and Tufts for their MAT/Ed.M programs and have absolutely no idea which to choose. Tufts offered me a full tuition scholarship alongside an Urban Teachers Teaching Collaborative Fellowship that'll give me about $12k. I haven't received any financial aid from HGSE, I should be hearing relatively soon. BU gave me a $33k scholarship, Brown gave me a $32,645 scholarship and BC didn't give me any money (although I'm waiting on the Donovan Program to respond to me- they offer full tuition scholarships as well) Money is of course a factor
  17. Hello everyone, I would like to hear your opinions on which school would better suit my interests and background. I think I have a pretty good profile. I am an international lawyer, with 3 years of work experience with UNHCR, currently accepted a position to work in the Mediterranean crisis in Greece. I have an LLB (Bachelor of Laws) from my country, and an LLM at a relatively known and respected US school in the international law field. I also did an internship at the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia in The Hague. I speak spanish, portuguese, a bit of french and
  18. Hi all, I'm planning to apply to Tufts' MERGE-ID program next year. Does anyone know of any similar programs? Any PhD programs in microbiology with a clinical aspect? Also, I was wondering if anyone here knows anything about the admission rate of the program, or can help me determine my chances. I haven't taken the GRE yet, but - I have a bachelor's in biology from Reed College (a little liberal arts college with a great research and academic reputation) with a 3.4 GPA - 5 independent biology research projects over the course of undergrad - Got an A on my senior thesis in microbio
  19. Hey! I'm gonna be starting at Tufts University for the Art History Masters Program this Fall (2016). Anyone else on here starting at Tufts in the fall? Furthermore, anyone going there who is also looking for someone to house with? I'm gonna be there starting mid-July. Comment or private message me if you are!
  20. 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
  21. I'm very torn between three programs I really like, so if anyone has thoughts that I wouldn't see in the marketing blurbs, please chime in. Everyone seems to have opinions on the relative "cachet" of each name, the closeness of each community, the opportunities of the metro areas, etc. I'll be concentrating on international trade policy, seeking employment in gov't or business. Regions of interest :Latin America, East/Southeast Asia. I've been admitted for the MALD, ElSIA MA, and MSFS--just booked a ticket to visit each open house and get a feel, for whatever that's worth. Here are my
  22. For those of us with this specific set of options, this would be a great place to lay out the pros and cons of these three institutions. Everyone seems to have opinions on the relative "cachet" of each name, the closeness of each community, the opportunities of the metro areas, etc., but it's safe to say they're all great schools, and I'd feel lucky to study at any of them. I'll be concentrating on international trade policy, seeking employment in gov't or business. Regions of interest : Latin America, East/Southeast Asia. I've been admitted for the MALD, ElSIA MA, and MSFS--just
  23. Hey all, I will be a first year Pharmacology PhD student at Tufts Sackler School in Boston this September! Anyone else decided on Sackler already?
