Graduate School Options

November 27, 2009

I’ve narrowed it down to 10 – need to drop another 3 before the applications start getting done. Thankfully, most of the applications aren’t due until after the New Year. I’m looking at a PhD in development economics or public policy and development economics. Here’s the list as it stands now:



Johns Hopkins – SAIS


George Mason






University of West VA

UNC Chapel Hill

    For what it’s worth, I’d drop:

    Gtown (SAIS/Mason are better bets in DC, plus more in line w/ your ideology);

    UWVA (see below); and

    UNC (everything else is cooler and Mason is a better safety. Plus if you don’t get in *anywhere* this year you can always take a year, work, save $, and reapply, no?)

    Those are just my $0.02! 🙂
