bcoconn Posted March 31, 2014 Share Posted March 31, 2014 Having a lot of difficulty making a decision between these three programs. Fletcher (MIB) and Georgetown (MSFS) both gave me about the same in money. I've met an incredible number of alumni from all three schools where I've been working and living abroad for the past three years, and everyone has great things to say about their own school and the alumni network. They seem to be equally held in regard from people at embassy, MNC gov. affairs departments, and consulting groups here. Money is definitely a big thing, but even if SAIS matched what was given, that would only put them back on even standing. I won't be coming back to the States until after the deadlines, so no chance to check out the campuses at open houses, although I'm very familiar with Tufts already. I applied to three schools thinking that I'd probably get into one, and each of them has a great program that had I no choice, I would be overjoyed and immediately accept. Now I have to make a decision, and I'm sort of flailing about trying to figure out what the important differences are. Money - two schools are equivalent. Location, but a) I really like both cities and in the field that I am pursuing, Fletcher's reputation trumps its location outside of DC. Reputation - all basically equally regarded. Class size doesn't particularly bother me one way or the other. Their alumni have equally impressive career paths. Any thoughts? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
