Hi there,

I received an admissions offerfrom Georgetown’s PPI for its Master in Public Policy in the InternationalDevelopment Track but am having some doubts about the course. It seems to bemore American focused rather than internationally. In addition, I am slightlyconcerned about the strong quantitative component of the course, as I am notcoming from an economics background. I am keen on international development but not sure if this is the right school.

The course seems to be moreexpensive than expected and am unlikely to have an scholarship. My question is,does the benefits in terms of future career prospects, recognition of theinstitution and network, and internship opportunities outweigh the costs?

I really liked SIPA but havebeen selected to re-apply next year. I also hold admissions offers from LSE(MPA) and Hertie School of Governance. The last one also offers possibility ofspending a semester at Duke, or GT and also exchange with LSE and SIPA.

I really don´t have an idea ofwhat to do… Any opinions?
