As the application season has begun, I felt we should have a thread for prospective applicants for MIA/MPA and other Graduate programs at SIPA (commencing in Fall 2021). We can discuss application related stuff and other other relevant topics here.

Anyone applying early action to SIPA? 

I intend to apply but not really sure if my recommenders will send in the recommendation in time! 

Hoping to also submit for the early action deadline! But I do have the same concern about recommendation letters not being submitted in time...

If we are applying early action, are we expected to complete the fellowship essays by Nov 1 or by the declared deadline of January 5? Wasn't sure how it worked for early applicants.

You can submit the fellowship essays by January 5. I have submitted the application in early action round and it allows you to upload fellowship related documents.

While the schools are mostly not-so-flexible about accepting admissions material after deadlines, in your case chances are that they will be accomodating as its just an update and moreover you applied in Early Action Round. My suggestion is to send an email to admissions informing them about your offer and attach an updated resume. Anyhow its not gonna harm in any way, so why not do it. 

SIPA tends to finalize decisions by 15 December. You can expect them to roll out anytime after that. Last year the date was 19th December.

Hi fellow SIPA applicants,

Urgent question. I applied early too. However, I was just told by a friend that its considered unprofessional to upload a resume that is more than 2 pages long. Is it me or did SIPA ask for a 3-4 pages long resume? I submitted a 4-page-long resume. I can't find where I got this information from but now I am freaking out haha.
