christop Posted December 21, 2017 Share Posted December 21, 2017 Hi all, I'm new to this forum but am hoping to get a bit of advice regarding a decision I have to make. I have been accepted to both the University of Chicago Harris School MPP and the University of Applied Sciences Berlin (Hochschule für Technik und Wirtschaft Berlin) Masters in International Development Economics. I am sure not many people know about the latter program but I am really interested in the topic (Development Econ.) and the city. In addition, I wouldn't need to take out loans for the whole masters (1.5 years), although the university is less well-known and not as academically vigorous as UChicago. I received a 30k recurring scholarship for UChicago, so I would receive about 60k for the two years (20-30k in loans, probably, for the whole program, since I have some savings). Is an MPP from Harris worth the loans I would need to take out? I am leaning towards Berlin still, since it's my dream to study there. But it's difficult to pull the plug knowing the opportunities an MPP from UChicago might open up. I am American, by the way. If anyone has any insight, please let me know! I don't have many resources for people who have made similar decisions. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
