Other Programs Applying To


Recommended Posts

Every application I've filled so far has included this question, with only one (NYU Wagner) stating directly that the answer will have no bearing on admission decisions. 

TBH, it freaks me out. How important/trivial is the answer to this question? What exactly are adcoms using it for? How should you answer this question for your No. 1 school?

I don't think this question matters at all. Whether you answer it is purely up to you! I think the programs just try to use this as a way to gauge their competition but I can't imagine that they accept or don't accept anyone based on their answers to it. Anecdotally, I have always answered this question and I got into everywhere I applied for undergrad and for my masters programs :)
