So, is anyone here considering a joint degree at Mich? I'm looking pretty seriously at the M.P.P. program. The Ford School has a reputation for excellence in quantitative analysis, but they incorporate classes in the necessary calculus and statistics into their first-year curriculum, which is very unique and very cool. I'm pretty interested in economic, particularly market regulation, and tax policy, all areas where Ford excels, so the joint program is a big point in UM's favor for me.
i'm also looking at the MPP. i'm just not sure if i want to spend an extra year in school and get myself an extra year in debt.
I'm looking to joint degree with a PhD hopefully . . . I'm hoping the summerstart will give me an advantage time-wise though.
Stop teasing us Miss Celies
lol if I had a Darrow, I'd definitely be going to Mich
Seriously though, what would it take for you to choose UMich over Columbia or anyone else that accepts you that's either higher ranked or more prestigious than UMich? Is it an actual possibility or are you thinking probably not?
Ha ha I wasn't teasing. If I had a Darrow, I'd go to Mich no contest w/o $$ from CLS. But I'm hoping for decent fin aid from both. CLS is only 6gs more than MIch, so to me 18k is a somewhat negligible amt, i can make that in a summer.
I'm going to be visiting Mich, UVa, and CLS and figuring out the pros and cons of each (tho right now it seems like a Mich v CLS battle).
I'm hoping that I get an epiphany--I can't picture myself at both schools, I just don't like CLS's housing options.
And dont' talk about teasing, from the dude who's go to Cornell over Mich.
She's got a point - you can't advocate a strict p-ho position and choose Cornell over UMich.
Gengiswump, Gengiswump... Now why would you gang up on poor 'lil Data?
But you know what, I don't mind. You and Miss Celies can take me down a notch anytime
