"The program is changing to a one year accelerated MPA, so a lot of what I've experienced may not apply to future applicants. Very little is given in terms of merit scholarships (and the dept is inconsistent in following their written procedure of doling them out). The Brown name is not without value. It is not a large program, which allows for more attention and interaction with faculty. Rhode Island transportation is abysmal, but you can use the bus for free with your Brown ID."

"Pros: Faculty and staff are sincerely interested in your academic and career goals and development. Coupled with the Brown name and quality of coursework, the opportunities that will arise from graduating from this program are above and beyond your typical graduate program. Cons: As with most Ivy League degrees, the price is heavy."

"Brown University offers an incredible education and opportunity to students to survive and make a difference in the real world. The unfortunate part in this is that the lack of financial aid options makes obtaining a degree from this university something only left to dream about. The trade off of cost vs the importance of a degree from Brown can be very overwhelming."
