I just received my official admission offer from Johns Hopkins, where they offer me 23,000$ for the first year, renewable for the second given good academic performance! I am very happy, and I would like to hear your views or experiences regarding the program.
Also, I am also accepted at George's Washington Univ. , MPP, which is cheaper as a whole, but they only offer me the opporunity to work as an assistant and no other form of financial aid.
Thank you and good luck to your applications!
That's fantastic. From what I hear, JHU is good for public health and GWU for international development. Your final choice should depend on how well your grad. school fits with your research/work interests. A good resource for financial aid (if you are from India): Aga Khan Foundation - Alumni Portraits
Hope this helped.
Thank you soapcase. I have to think very seriously in relation to work interests, but at the end of the day 23,000 $ (renewable for the second year) is a very strong incentive and can lead to certain compromises...
