    All decisions are supposed to come out together. No?

    Applied for the MPP, strong recommendation letters, strong SOP, and professional experience. Didn't apply for FAID because I have an external source of scholarship. Hoping for the best, but I don't expect I will get in - and I don't know the reason either because admission is not predictable based on these known factors. Good luck for everyone!

    The thread is very slow this year. Last year, there were hundreds of posts exchanged by this time.
