  1. Did anyone get the chance to attend McCourt's Admitted Student Days last weekend? I wasn't able to make it due to a work commitment and want to know what others thought of it.

  4. Accepted with funding! Will likely be where I end up going as my other acceptance didn't come with a scholarship. Excited to celebrate tonight! Good luck to everyone!
  5. I was waitlisted for Harris's MPP program yesterday and since it's one of my top choices I was wondering if anyone had suggestions for anything I can do to improve my chances of getting off the waitlist. I'm taking the GRE again next month to hopefully boost my quant score (currently it's 153 and I'm aiming for around a 158) and I'm taking an online intro micro course spring semester (have not previously taken one). Is there anything else worth doing or looking into between now and May? Should I personally reach out to the admissions office expressing my interest? Thanks in advance!
  6. Did it seem like they were still reviewing applications? Cause then they may not release decisions until after the New Year
  7. Wonder what that will mean for accept rates and class size
  8. I attended an info session at HKS and there was a college senior in my group and the woman leading the session essentially told him that unless he was a really outstanding applicant there was no chance of acceptance (I believe she said only 5% of the incoming class are straight from undergrad). When talking with a staff member at Harris, she said that about 1/3 of their incoming class has 0-1 years of experience, which is the highest portion that I've seen. Most of the top programs are closer to 15% for straight out of undergrad acceptances (SIPA, SAIS, and McCourt are all around there I belie
  9. The exact same thing happened to me! Part of the reason I wanted to post the update here haha
  10. Received an email about an hour ago also confirming the evening of the 22nd and it seems that they won't be doing phone call notifications, just an email directing to the portal
  11. I got a card too. I think they may have my address from when I requested more information and I've gotten a few holiday emails from other schools I've applied to or started applications for, so I didn't think much of it. It would be odd, though, if they pulled addresses from the applications
  12. Does anyone know how they contacted applicants last year?
  13. Do you think those they don't accept or defer just get emails, then?
  14. Does anyone know how they notified applicants of decisions in the past?
