I am happy to say that several hundred applicants have already submitted Part 1 of their SIPA application. As a reminder, the application is broken into two parts.
Part 1 simply requires the submission of the application form along with the names and contact information for the three individuals you have chosen to compose letters of recommendation and the application fee. This process takes no more than 1 hour to complete.
Part 2 allows you to submit your personal statement, resume, transcripts, and test scores. The test scores are self reported and the transcripts can be unofficial. These requirements can be completed up until the deadline – January 5th, 2010.
We recommend that applicants complete Part 1 as soon as possible. This will allow us to print your application and start a file for you. The earlier Part 1 is submitted, the sooner we can get started on the process of getting your file set up for review by the Admissions Committee.
