I have received admission from UCSD for their non-STEM MPP program in energy and environment specialization. I have also got into the STEM based MS in EST&P program with engineering and public policy specialization from Carnegie Mellon. In a dilemma about which one to decide. 

PS: After graduating, I would want to work as a policy analyst at think tanks/labs/research orgs.

STEM has its benefits and CMU's EST&P program is quite popular. Not really heard much about the UCSD program.

Define some factors according to which you need to decide, like costs, courses, faculty, location etc.

You'll be able to take courses on energy and environment as well as analytics at CMU. They're pretty flexible. I'm not aware of UCSD's curriculum.

Take a good long look at the two programs and what they offer and then make your decision. I would vote for CMU, but I'm a little biased.

Good luck!
