Re: Advice on choosing MACRM vs PhD?
Boi you have a very unconventional profile. You definitely should consult other people, but if I were you and if I could afford the tuition at Chicago, I would go there. I think that would give me the following options: (a) get into Chicago's public policy PhD program (given that what you heard is true), (b) the program would give me the opportunity to take challenging classes and show people that "hey I can do it; please take a chance on me", and (c) access to new LOR writers. You should definitely check out MSU's placements first though and see if you're happy with the median placement there before deciding. Good luck
