HELP! school choices for Fulbright foreign student nominee - Urban transportation studies


Recommended Posts


I have recently been informed about my nomination for a Fulbright foreign student scholarship in the US.

In a couple of weeks I will be meeting someone from the Washington to talk about my school choices and my potential placements, so I could use some advice about the best schools to go for.

As you all may know, I only get to pick 4 schools, only one of which can be Ivy league or a top school, and only two can be in a major city.

To give you a bit of a background story about me, I have : 

- A BA and MA in architecture 

- An MA in Urban planning

- 1 year in general urban transportation classes (non degree)

- 5 years of experience in architecture and urban planning (including two years as an operations director in a consultancy group)

I gotta say that I did my research about potential programs, but most of them seem to have strong engineering or economics bases, with which I'm not entirely familiar. However, if that's what I need to do, I'm not averse to studying for the 8 upcoming months to get my math and microeconomics qualification on par.

I have my heart set on this amazing program in MIT that works on transportation issues while combining technical solutions with social science studies (which is entirely my cup of tea), and I know that NYU has a good transportation program in their engineering department.

Anyway, long story short, I would really need some insight from people who have gone through this kind of decision-making process or anyone who knows of good programs.

Thank you all.
