Applied to WWS and HKS (MPP). Couldn't apply to Stanford - just didn't have the time or energy to write a 7 page policy paper. Plus I didn't feel it was a good fit for me. Maybe next time (hopefully not though!)

Well I had the same problem/ dilemma and finally decided to submit my WWS policy memo as an "academic sample". Stanford was ok with it (drafted few more pages though) !

What are we thinking about notifications? Last year was extremely early (2/23) which gives me some hope of hearing soon, but the norm seems to be two weeks after that—not sure which to expect!

Anyone with any idea when results for Yale are declared? Last year it was 23rd Feb.. and going by other posts, Yale FES has already declared theirs (last year FES was March 6th I think)... ugh the anxiety is killing me

I’m wondering as well! I’d thought about calling or emailing to see if they had an expected date, but I’d rather not bother them. It’s usually in March, so last year’s outlier date just added some probably unwarranted anxiety.

Could someone call? Is that an option?

EDIT: Gave the school a call- Anytime from next week to mid-march

Sigh, not as soon as everyone hoped but atleast we get some sort of clarity..

Well that's a little disappointing, but thank you for calling and letting us know! I guess I'll try to put it out of my mind for this week--and I'll just end up thinking more about Notre Dame instead.

Grrrr....Can't wait anymore...  Also, anyone heard back from Stanford (MIP) ? HKS and WWS will definitely release their decisions next week.

Well first notification, first rejection (Stanford MIP) 😢... not my top choice (Jackson/WWS) even though it's a great program...

Decisions are out! Accepted! Does anyone know if the initial admissions letter should contain fellowship/funding if offered? Or does that come later? If not bummer... means no fellowship/extra $$ for me

Rejected at Yale. There was a gigantic applicant pool and so few spots, so I’m not too bummed. Congrats to everyone accepted, you’re going to have a wild ride and I’m proud of all y’all!

Received update. One option crossed from the places I could end up at. 

Congratulations to the ones who get accepted!

I’m in as well and also haven’t received any info on funding! Hoping that means we’re both going to receive some more info soon.  Congrats!

I'm also in, and my letter said funding decisions will be released separately by the actual program. Hoping that comes out soon as well!

Hello, new member. Congratulations to all who made it. I also applied but have not received any update yet, while I thought that all decisions are announced together. Can I ask whether you applied to the MA or the MAS? Thanks in advance.
