Summerfest 2016: Coming to DC and NYC



The summer before applying to graduate school is an excellent time for prospective students to decide which program is the best fit. With applications for a number of graduate schools going live in late-September, starting to prepare now provides ample time to compare and contrast programs that on the surface seem similar.

Summerfest is an annual reception for prospective graduate students interested in the field of international affairs, aimed to be a one-stop shop for those who'd like to compare multiple programs in a single trip. During this reception, admissions representatives, alumni, and current students from five top schools of international affairs will be present to discuss careers in international relations, degree offerings, and admissions requirements for entry into graduate school.

This year, three receptions will be held--two in the District of Columbia and one in New York City. In addition to Johns Hopkins SAIS, institutions represented include: Columbia SIPA, Georgetown WSFS, Princeton University WWS, and Tufts Fletcher.
