  1. Great clip, congrats. I just did CNS in DC, which was a great course. The Core Course Requirement is something unique for SAIS. I would leave it as it is. There are many fields you can specialize at SAIS. The core courses give you a tool of interpretation of world politics; and I think it is a quality bench mark that SAIS graduates are also knowledgeable in the broad picture.
