Submitted my application December 15th with required supporting documentation.

I've had no update on my application since. I asked if there was any updates that could be given and when to expect a response and received an automated message.

I've applied to QMUL and the MPA program at University of Southern California. Although my wife and I are American, she has been accepted into a fully funded PHD program in the United Kingdom.

To be frank, given my personal situation I am currently favoring USC. I wanted to avoid doing an online program, but I have spoken with alumni who have only said great things about the program. It is also among the top 3 programs in the United States for public policy, and I am fortunate enough to have access for full funding.

KCL has a great reputation as well, but from my perspective as an international student, the application process reflects poorly on the program.

You haven't considered Oxbridge, or LSE?

I did consider both Oxbridge and LSE but I didn't apply because I feel like I don't have enough relevant work experience for Oxbridge considering I haven't even graduated yet and with LSE I'm put off by their fees and I believe I don't qualify for their scholarships

If you don't mind me asking are you applying/ have you applied to any Public Policy courses?
