IamIndecisive Posted March 22, 2022 Share Posted March 22, 2022 I am in the process of deciding between pursuing a Master of Public Policy at The University of Chicago and a Master of Public Administration in Environmental Science and Policy at Columbia. I would appreciate any insight that you all have to offer! Here are the factors I am currently considering: UChicago Pro: I received a substantial scholarship Pro: How general the MPP curriculum is Pro: Joint JD, MBA and PhDs are always a possible Con: Knowing my learning style, I am not enamored with the two-year format, especially in an unfamiliar city Columbia Pro: 12-month format--back into the workforce quicker, more suited to my learning style Pro: Location in New York Con: No scholarships Con: Limited experience studying earth sciences Con: I am nervous about whether I want to exclusively work in the environmental policy area after school/its transferability as a degree To make matters worse, I am still waiting to hear back from the Georgetown MPP program. Thanks in advance for your thoughts! GradSchoolGrad 1 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
