  1. Hi all, As some of you may know the UPenn Fels program received a complete makeover during the past two years and began admitting new students for fall 2020 after a hiatus last year. I am really looking for those with knowledge to provide insight on how the program has changed and information on how the program is looked upon in the MPA/MPP community. There seems to be very little information about the new program and previous quality insights are from old posts in 2012/2013. Thanks in ahead.
  2. Hi all, I just received an email from Penn's College of Liberal and Professional Studies about an hour ago that says the following: "Subject: Penn LPS – Transcript Policy Reminder Dear [my name], Congratulations again on your acceptance to the Fels Institute, Master of Public Administration, MPA Full-time Program. Our records indicate that we have not yet received all of your official transcripts. Per our transcript policy, you must submit final official transcripts of all previous academic work. For students who have been accepted to an LPS Post-Baccalaureate or Graduate program, official transcripts must include degree conferral. Please check your transcript status by logging into your Admissions Portal and reviewing the checklist. Further information regarding what constitutes an official transcript can be found HERE. If the option is available, please request your final official transcripts be sent electronically to lps-admissions@sas.upenn.edu. Electronic submission of transcripts improves tracking and reduces processing time. Please feel free to contact our office should you have any questions or if you feel you have received this message in error: lps-admissions@sas.upenn.edu or 215-746-6906. We will be happy to assist you. Best regards, College of Liberal and Professional Studies University of Pennsylvania www.sas.upenn.edu/lps" I am curious if anyone else received this email today and if they also believe it may be a mistake? My Admissions Portal still says that my app is "under review" and I was never originally notified of an admission decision at all prior to receiving this email (hence why I am skeptical about the "Congratulations *again*" part). I have emailed admissions about this as the instructions said to do in the email, but it looks like they will not be open until next week. Any thoughts or ideas in the meantime?? Thanks in advance!
  3. Thought I'd start a thread for other Fels applicants out there anxiously waiting. I think decisions are set to be released next week (!!!), based on results from previous years. Is anyone else considering one of the dual programs?
  4. I applied to UPenn's Fels Institute of Government full-time MPA program (not the executive program). I accepted the invitation to do an optional interview with an alum tomorrow. Has anyone else interviewed? Any thoughts on preparation? How about thoughts on phone interviews in general? Thanks everyone! -Lou
