@AaBbAa Nice, have you heard anything as far as notification date?

Not officially, but I was on a virtual session in which they said decisions usually come out mid-December.

Did anyone who applied to SAIS get an email from them asking if you preferred to start in DC or Bologna?

I applied for sais early notification and I didn’t received any email asking for that. Did you chose on your application? Because I did

I thought so too. What should I be hoping for in terms of funding from them? Just to see whether or not i should be trying to negotiate.

I marked that I'd be open to either DC or Bologna. Did you specify which campus you wanted from the outset, or did you also select that you were open to both?

Not sure for that program specifically, but I have heard that SIPA isn't always great with funding (but anecdotally, I'll admit). May as well try to negotiate, worst possible outcome is status quo.

I was specific about my preference 

Yeah, you're probably fine then. I didn't specify.

Did you guys submit GRE scores to Fletcher? I didn’t and not sure if I should.

I didn’t because I got the sense when I visited that they genuinely didn’t care. I think if you got a really good score it’s probably worth sending, but otherwise I think it’s not very important.

What would you consider a good score?

Based on a few different schools in that general tier, maybe something in the ranges of 160-165 for verbal and 157-162 for quant.

Did those applying early to SAIS receive an email confirming that all elements of your application were complete? I received the submission confirmation but never the second email that the submission confirmation told me I ought to receive

I got an email the day I sent my app in saying that my app was complete and was being reviewed and that they’d reach out if anything else was needed. I’d check to see what your app status page says.

Did you check off on the app that you were open to both sais dc and sais Europe?
