Looking for "real life" opinions/perspectives on HKS. Any current/recently graduated students out there?

Hi, I'm desperately torn between Kennedy's MPP, Georgetown's MSFS, and the MALD at Fletcher (deadline Friday!). I'd love to get perspectives from current students/recent grads on their experiences at the Kennedy School. I'd be coming in with a more IR focus, interested in the intersections between security and development. My main concerns with HKS is that with the size and other commitments of professors, you're more of a number. I'm okay with having to work a little harder to get that "personal experience" but want to make sure I won't just be sitting in crowded lecture halls/being taught by TAs for half of my academic career (esp when I'm paying 50k a year for it...) and struggling to really connect with my profs. Have funding from MSFS and Fletcher, non at HKS, but not an overwhelming amount at either school and, while Kennedy would result in the highest level of debt, feel confident that I could get out with under 80k...
