Christie- I am getting my MPA from the University of Dayton. I like the program so far. All classes are taught in the evening, and it is geared toward working professionals. I am one of only about five students that are coming straight from undergrad. I am learning from both the teachers and my fellow classmates. The program combines theory with practical skills, with traditional prof's and former graduates teaching various courses. This semester the city manager of Dayton (former grad) is teaching a class, and another class brings in panels of state and local government leaders to discuss current issues.
I only applied to OSU, Case Western, and Dayton Law School.
I am in @ Dayton with a substantial scholarship, but have not heard from OSU or Case.
