  • I had an interview two weeks ago. Funding info is still pending. USC program extended a fully funded campus visit invitation, including hotel, food and air fares. This program has an IPE major, so I guess any background in economics, such as a bachelor double degree, would enhance your chance. The program interacts with students all through the staff, so the process feels really orgnized and professional.
