2nd Tier MA in IR programs

Hello all,

Given my background, I am apprehensive about whether I will get accepted into SIPA, SFS, SAIS, etc. While I plan on applying to some of these schools, I would also like to apply to some second tier programs that will give me access to a quality education.

Any thoughts?

    Bump* I'm probably in the same boat; interested in some second tier.

    Looking at Pittsburgh/Geneva program. Other suggestions? I'm at Georgetown now as an International Business/Finance Major Econ minor & probably MA IAffairs or IDevelopment.

    Hey - I'm also looking at Denver's Korbel School, King's in London, and the University of Minnesota's Humphrey School. Humphrey would be a little different, but is a great public affairs school. I also really like their PoliSci/Global Studies departments, which are a logical connection.
