MPA/CIPA Cornell Fall 2016

Hi,

I wonder if any of you who applied to the MPA program at CIPA, Cornell, have received admission decisions from them. My application status has been shown to be "complete" since January 14 but I've heard nothing back so far. Also, according to their website, those who apply before the end of January should be notified of the decision by mid-February. I know it's only Feb 18 but can't help starting to worry a bit (you know, waiting is excruciating...hahaha)

I checked the result page and have seen no updates regarding this program so far so I figure I should ask some of you here :)

Thanks!

Hi! @marga_mae ahh congratulations! Yes, I received notification about funding a couple weeks ago (12,000 dollar per year fellowship). However, it was quite a few weeks between when I learned about my acceptance and when I heard about my funding

Thank you, @jpfreeman!

May I also ask if you emailed them to request for fellowship consideration or they just got back to you as part of the process? Sorry for asking so many questions. It's great to have someone in the same shoes to talk to :)

I recommend applying in the Spring when competition is low. Any school that has a high international : domestic student ratio bodes when for domestic students, especially in the Ivy League where students from abroad want to study. Before coming take stats and both intro econs again. Not because they transfer or taking them will make you more competitive, but because many classes require a current working understanding of them, even if it's just a few courses required by the major. 10,000K seems to be a low annual tuition scholarship  but I can't confirm this. The amount you're given is negotiable if you have competing offers from comparative schools. The MPA is great, very flexible. About 115 students enter the MPA each year. Also look at Dyson School of Applied Management and the SLOAN schools (depending on your interest).

No problem! They just got back to me a part of the process. It was maybe 4 weeks after my acceptance email that I received an email with fellowship information. :)

@jpfreeman4 weeks would be a dashed long wait for me as I got an acceptance mail only three days ago. My fault of course as I finished my application with the interview only on 10th Feb.

@OpusMPAGood to hear that fellowship awards aren't etched in stone. So far I have received quite limited fellowship funding from the programs I have been accepted into.
