We strongly encourage you to submit only three letters of recommendation. Learn more. I have been working for several years and lost touch with my college professors. Can I get all three letters of recommendation from employers and colleagues? We advise you to get letters of recommendation from individuals who know you best and can speak about your strengths and your preparedness for graduate study. If you lose touch with your college professors, letters of recommendation from employers and colleagues will suffice. How should I approach my recommenders? Inquire with potential recommenders in late summer, or very early fall. If your recommenders know you very well, they will be very willing to write a letter of recommendation for you. If you want to ease their burden, you should provide them with as many materials about your application as possible: e.g. resume, reasons why you are interested in graduate schools, etc. Approach as many as possible interview them, and ask them what can you say about me? Select the recommenders that can best vouch for your candidacy. 1 HARRIS SCHOOL OF PUBLIC POLICY FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

CLASS PROFILE What does a typical class look like? You can find our 2014 Class Profile at MISCELLANEOUS What is an MPP degree? The Masters of Public Policy (MPP) degree emphasizes analyzing and evaluating information to solve complex policy problems. As analysts, managers, and leaders, MPP graduates work with quantitative and qualitative data to develop, assess, and evaluate alternative approaches to current and emerging issues. Their careers are in variety of public service fields and in all levels of government (federal, state, and local), in nonprofits, international organizations, consulting firms, and in the private sector. [source: NASPAA] 3 HARRIS SCHOOL OF PUBLIC POLICY FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

5 MISCELLANEOUS CONT. What s the difference between an MPA and an MPP degree? MPA and MPP programs have blended and converged as complements to one another, with courses and specializations often overlapping. Some schools combine the degrees and name them differently. The training and skill sets differ as well. MPA students typically excel in management and technical implementation of policy, whereas MPP students are trained to analyze and recommend sound institutional policies. Why an MPP instead of an MBA degree? Both MPP and MBA degrees offer advanced analysis courses as part of their core curriculum. An MBA degree, while still flexible enough to apply to the public sector, is a degree focused for a career in the private sector, specifically in management, entrepreurship, and organizational leadership. If you wish to pursue a career in a government agency, a nonprofit, or other public service institution, an MPP degree is ideal. What is the core curriculum? The core curriculum draws on a variety of disciplines and fields, including economics, sociology, political science, statistics, econometrics, political economy, organizational theory, and program evaluation. These areas provide a foundation in critical analysis, reflecting the School s belief that mastering quantitative and analytical skills prepares students to be effective public policy practitioners. You can view a typical first year MPP schedule here: degrees/masters-degree/mpp. I do not have a quantitative background. Can I handle the demanding coursework at Chicago Harris? Roughly one third of our student body consider themselves as not having a strong quantitative background prior to applying and enrolling at Chicago Harris. Many demonstrated their capability by scoring well in the GRE and taking supplemental quantitative courses prior to coming to Harris. We have all the resources necessary to ensure that enrolling students will excel in the core. How is Chicago Harris different from other policy schools? We take pride in our diverse student body. Students come to us from all over the world, with different social, political, and academic backgrounds and an extraordinary array of policy interests child and family policy, social policy, international policy, public finance, health policy, education policy, and more. They are bound by a common passion for problem-solving and commitment to the public good. Our rigorous analytical training with relevant application to solve real-world problems gives students the tools to tackle the most pressing policy issues of our day. How can I distinguish myself in the Chicago Harris applicant pool? We know your strengths, and your weaknesses. Tell us how you intend to address your weaknesses at Chicago Harris. Demonstrate in your resume that you are more than a student show us your volunteer experiences, travel, hobbies, etc. If you are funny, serious, or something in between, don t be afraid to hide it. What types of jobs do MPP graduates have? At Chicago Harris, our graduates place in each sector (public, private and nonprofit) almost evently from year to year. Common starting jobs for graduates include policy analysts, program managers, grant writers, researchers, and budget analysts. As their experience grows, many graduates rise to upper-level positions in government, nonprofit, and even business organizations. The MPP degree program will help you to ascend the ladder. Learn more on where our students place in the labor market by viewing the Policy Area Guidebook and Skills & Employment Guide. Can I defer my admission? Deferrals are considered on a case-by-case basis, and are usually approved for only one academic year. We understand that unexpected things happen. We strongly encourage you to apply to Chicago Harris when you are ready and able to enroll. Learn more. HARRIS SCHOOL OF PUBLIC POLICY FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS 4
