Hi guys,

I really really like the K-A Bonnier Fellowship program (high school background in Singapore, always wanted to come back as I'm from the SEA area). But I feel my profile is better suited/ stronger for Applied Economics Analysis. I could modify my SOP to gear more towards Management/entrepreneurship but it's no way as strong as my economics SOP. Still, top choice is the Management program, so on my application form, if I say first choice Management and second choice Economics, would that seriously hurt my chances to get into both? Should I just keep Economics at the top/ just apply for Management, as the portal says that ideally you should only be applying to the program that you are most interested in.

Some background:
- GPA 3.83 in a top 50 liberal arts college in the US, major in Economics and Math
- GRE 167 Quant, 164 Verbal
- Multiple internships in Singapore, US and London, but all economic/econometrics-based
- Some leadership positions in colleges (made it to Exec of 2 organizations), decent volunteer
- Research assistant for Econ professor

Any help would be much, much appreciated as I'm trying to make the November deadline! Thanks for reading!

Hey Chaubo!

From the looks of your profile at first glance I would say that you have a strong chance of getting into both programs. I attended an SSE Masters open house event two weeks ago and I asked them whether applying to several master programs at SSE would hurt one's overall chances of being accepted to the school. They essentially told me that as long as you clearly motivate in your cover letter why you want to apply to each respective program, your overall chances of being accepted will not be lower. They seemed to be quite understanding of the fact that some students have a broad range of interests and may thus be prompted to apply to several programs.

Hope that I was of some help! Good luck with the application process!
