PPDE Peer Advising Survey

Policy Professionals for Diversity and Equity (PPDE) at UCLA is committed to ensuring that the student community of the Master of Public Policy (MPP) program at the Luskin School of Public Affairs reflects the diversity of backgrounds and experiences of Los Angeles and the State of California. We believe that as a master's program at a public institution, cohorts of students should reflect the diversity of the city, state, and nation that UCLA was created to serve.

To achieve this goal, PPDE recruits current UCLA Luskin MPP students to guide prospective applicants through the graduate application process.

Peer Advisors provide feedback on final drafts of Statements of Purpose and UCLA Fellowship Statements, share advice on the application process, and answer general questions about Luskin and the public policy field. We gladly provide our services to ALL who are interested and highly encourage individuals from underrepresented backgrounds (students of color, LGBTQ-identifying, low-income, differently-abled, etc.) to reach out to our team.

We have three different deadlines throughout the application period for you to submit your materials by. Please find the updated deadlines here: bit.ly/LuskinPPDE

DISCLAIMER:
Please be advised that the PPDE Peer Advising Program does not, in any way, guarantee admission to the UCLA Luskin MPP program. Current Luskin MPP students provide advice and feedback on the Statement of Purpose (SOP) essays and answer general questions about Luskin to the best of their knowledge. We are not trained by, nor do we represent, in any way, the admissions committee or the Luskin MPP Administration.

Comments and advice are purely to help prospective applicants better communicate their skills and strengths in the SOP essay and to make a more informed decision about the public policy graduate program.
