econpp Posted April 20, 2013 Share Posted April 20, 2013 Hi All - So I got an email today offering me a spot off the WWS waitlist. I'm interested in urban economic development policy. I've currently accepted Harvard's offer (some $$, I'd probably end up about with about 50k debt). I think that HKS would probably be a better fit for me, and I'd also like to be in Boston for other personal reasons, but I'm having a hard time turning down a fully funded offer. HKS Pros -Alumni Network (breadth) -Better overall rep -Stronger urban policy focus -More practitioner-centered -Fellowship in area of interest -More classes (though harder to get into) -More speakers -I'd like to be in Boston for other personal reasons WWS Pros -Alumni Network (depth) and better career center -Better rep in policy circles -Stronger academics Thoughts? What would you guys add to the list? Also, did anyone turn down WWS for a less than fully funded offer? And how is WWS in domestic policy? Feel free to PM me if you don't want to post in this thread.
