Sadia Afreen discusses the beginning stages of her Capstone assignment.
Most of you reading this blog post received the admission decision you were hoping to get when you applied to SIPA this year. You should be proud of your achievement. There was a competitive applicant pool and your application was exemplary. And now that the celebrations have died down a bit, I wanted to recap a few things that every newly-admitted student should know going forward.
By now you’ve checked your email and have learned that we released Fall 2017 entry admissions decisions. When you did read your decision, I’m sure you went through a mix of emotions. Good or bad, there are some things our waitlisted candidates and those who weren’t granted admission should know going forward.
It’s our second snow closure of the season. We anticipate reopening during normal business hours on Wed., March 15, 2017. In the meantime, please be patient with us as we play catch-up with our email inboxes now that admissions decisions have been released. Stay warm everybody! -Kaitlyn
For today, I want to give everyone more time to process their decisions…and to celebrate the achievements of those who were admitted. To mark it, here’s a look at all of the emotions — in gif form — you must have felt when you read your letter.
