Hello from Greece! I would like to ask about internships. Can you find one easily since you arrive in US in January? How is the situation with Covid-19? Thank you very much in advance!

In terms of housing, is it best to use apartments.com and/or Zillow to find housing in Somerville/Medford area? Or are there websites or online groups for Fletcher students where potential housing options are posted?

I found the online experience to be pretty seamless! Professors worked pretty hard to improve the Zoom University experience :)

Greetings from India! Really glad to be a part of this session. With respect to the LLM course, is there anything one needs to do read up or be well versed with concerning prescribed books? Any tips to prepare ourselves in order to better grasp the LLM course curriculum since we have close to 2 months before the start? Many thanks.

Agree, it’s also really easy to integrate into the larger fall cohort once they arrive. But you still get to lean on your fellow Januarians, which is great. I find people are often jealous of the Januarian bond!

Do students work part time / are there options to find some part time work on campus?

In terms of specializations, how often do students change their concentrations in the MALD? For example switching from International Economic Relations to International Business?
Brennan Murray

I’m an MIB, but I’ve definitely switched my field already haha. I think it’s common across the board and not difficult. Just need to make sure you leave time to complete two fields before graduation. Registrar and academic advisors can be really helpful.
