RusS Posted May 7, 2017 Share Posted May 7, 2017 Hoping to get feedback on the two schools I'm considering for an MA in International Relations this fall 2017. I was admitted into the University of Mississippi's MA program with a teaching/research assistantship and stipend. I was also admitted to University of Kentucky's Patterson School with in-state tuition plus $7500 scholarship for the year subject to review for the third/final semester. That would make Patterson approx $23,000 more expensive total, although it's a higher-ranked school. I'm pretty sure I want to continue on to a PhD in political science, and my assistantship at Ole Miss would allow me to study under a professor and publish, whereas at Patterson, it's less likely because the focus of the program is more on the application of political science in the working world. I'm not sure which to weigh more heavily for helping my chances of being admitted to a high-ranking PhD program: the higher ranked Patterson MA program or the opportunity to do research and publish at Ole Miss. Thoughts? Advice? Thank you-- Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
