  1. Congrats! I'm sure WWS will be a great experience. I, unfortunately, didn't get off their waitlist so I'm heading to SIPA. Saving that money would've certainly been nice but, given that SIPA is a great fit for me on numerous fronts, I'm okay with making this investment and am very excited for the next two years. Best of luck at WWS
  2. Columbia SIPA MPA with a concentration in Human Rights and Humanitarian Policy & specialization in International Conflict Resolution. Very excited!
  3. Program Applied To: MPA, MPP, MALD Schools Applied To: Princeton (WWS MPA), Harvard (Kennedy MPP), Columbia (SIPA MPA), Tufts (Fletcher MALD), UChicago (Harris MPP) Schools Admitted To: HKS, SIPA ($$$), Fletcher ($$), Harris ($) Schools Rejected From: WWS (didn’t get off the waitlist) Still Waiting: Undergraduate institution: Top 5 LAC Undergraduate GPA: 3.9 Last 60 hours of Undergraduate GPA (if applicable): Undergraduate Major: International Relations and minor in French GRE Quantitative Score: 160 GRE Verbal Score: 162 GRE AW Score: 5.5 Years Out of Undergrad (if applicable): 2 Years of Work Experience: 2 Describe Relevant Work Experience: Summer internships during college at an embassy, a UN agency, and international development NGO. Post-grad (in my home country) internship at a human rights INGO and then 1 year at a youth leadership/development organization. Strength of SOP (be honest, describe the process, etc): Struggled with these in the beginning but the statements eventually came together in a cohesive and compelling manner. Generally the following structure: personal background, academic background, professional background, why this university/program/degree, what skills/experiences I am seeking to develop, and future career goals. Strength of LOR's (be honest, describe the process, etc): 2 from professors/academic supervisors who know me and my academic/professional goals well and 1 from my manager at the human rights INGO. Didn’t read any but I assume they were very strong. Other: SIPA was always my first choice due to the program, faculty, location, career prospects, etc and their generous financial aid made my decision easy. Will be pursuing an MPA with a concentration in Human Rights and Humanitarian Policy & specialization in International Conflict Resolution. Excited for this next step in my personal, academic, and professional journey!
  4. Congrats on getting off the WWS waitlist! I'm still on it and have my fingers crossed for good news sometime within the next two weeks. I'm in a very similar boat though in terms of the SIPA acceptance, scholarship, and it being my dream program/perfect fit. Have you decided what you're going to do?
  5. That makes a lot of sense, thanks for sharing. So which program will you be attending?
  6. Did they call or email you? And, if you don't mind sharing, why have you decided to decline their offer?
  7. Same question from above. Has anyone on the wait list heard back?
