macroecon16 Posted October 10, 2015 Share Posted October 10, 2015 Hey everyone, I was wondering if I could get some feedback. I want to work in public policy, specifically education policy. I've been searching all the threads to see what type of people get into these programs, and I can't decide if I'll get in or not. Here's my info (I don't know what will count towards my admission so I added pretty much everything) Honours Economics degree from small east coast universityCGPA of 3.7, last two years GPA also 3.7Only one political science course (Canadian Government Institutions)4 year varsity athlete, 3 (will likely be 4 after this year) year Academic All Canadian Will have strong LOR from plenty of Econ and Soc professors 1 year of research on housing prices and social housing policyHonours thesis on education policyOne year of work as a TA in the Econ departmentPosition on Student Union Graduated from a 3-year leadership course through our school's varsity athlete council (very selective, only one in Canada)Anyways, now that you sat through my life story you're obligated to help me. Please be realistic (I can take it), will I get into MPA/MPP programs in Canada? Will I be on the fence? Do I have no sweet chance? I know the decision making process is completely dependent on the year and the SOP/LOR and everything, but assuming I do well in those areas what's your opinion? Are there schools I shouldn't consider applying to? I'm from Ontario, so I'd ideally like to get back there. Right now I'm considering applying to Carleton, Queen's, Ryerson, Dal, and Waterloo (MPS). PLEASE don't hesitate to let me know if I'm wasting my time and my already dwindling $$. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
