Hi,

I also applied rather late (end of march) and got and email that my application was complete around the 10 may. They informed me two days ago that my application was admissible and that they were going to decide and inform me asap. After I asked them for an approximate date I was told to get a final decision around the end of June.

So I think, as you can read in this thread, they are just really slow. On the other hand they replied quite quickly to my mails so you can also just write or call them to at least get a general idea of where your application is in the whole process right now.

wow...that sucks because i need to decide soon whether to take this job offer or not...

well, my academics and credentials weren't impressive at all and considering the large number of applicants, i'll just assume that i wasn't accepted and take the job???

I've heard from the international alums that admin is hell, but they are mostly very happy they went. It took about a month and a half to get a response when I applied, hang in there!

I'll be going to Sciences Po later this year.

While my emails to Accueil Administratif have mostly gone unanswered, they've been fantastic over the phone.

Yes, the process is slow and absurdly disorganized, but things do keep moving. Do call them with your concerns; you might find that what's *actually* expected of you or how something is done varies quite a bit with what you read on the website.

I am interested in a couple of programs here but this news is terrible...I guess the person who applied in the fall and got the Emile scholarship did it right. 

 

Not sure why so many applied so late in the Spring. What did you expect?!  :wacko:
