Best Schools for High End Policy Work?

Postby Curiosity Bevo » Thu May 10, 2012 8:38 pm

I'm talking about the schools that pump out nameless technocrats that follow secretaries around Washington, DC.

I'm thinking it goes something like Yale, Harvard, UVA, Penn, Columbia, Georgetown, Chapel Hill, George Washington.

I should add, the purpose of this thread is (1), to waste time and (2) to think about where I want to get a Masters in Public Policy after a few years of work. It would be silly to transfer right now.

Probably Thomas Jefferson Law School. No, not UVa. The actual "Thomas Jefferson School of Law"

Just judging by what I've noticed over the years, I think the list goes:

1. Yale
2. Yale
3. Yale

I have no doubt that the occasional Harvard or Columbia grad sneaks in from time to time but those Yalies don't have to sneak.

I am going to venture to guess the best schools are Yale, Harvard, Stanford.

Just based off of the school names I've seen come up over and over again during my time working in DC. I don't know why I even come to this site.

Well yeah, I don't know what anyone else could possibly offer you. I mean - you did work in DC and all...

UNC sends a lot of undergrads to DC, but not JDs.
