Hi there,

I'm looking to apply to Masters programs in planning for Fall 2017. I'd like to focus in Community Development and want to be sure I learn GIS skills. I'm from the DC area. In no particular order, I'm considering applying to:

1. University of Maryland
2. VTech at Alexandria
3. University of Virginia
4. Hunter College, CUNY
5. Pratt Institute
6. University of New Orleans
7. University of Illinois - Chicago

I would love to hear from past and current students or faculty about these programs! What was your favorite or least favorite aspect of the program you attended? Thank you for your help!

Consider where you may want to live post graduation. Personally, I ended up getting a state job in the same city after finishing grad school. It was easy to network and attend interviews since I was in town.

Been to grad school twice - my advice is to 1) pay as little as possible for school 2) find a program that has a strong (I mean strong) relationship with the industry 3) attend a school that is in an area with a strong economy.
