Fall 2011 Applicant Facts Post #1

Over the next few weeks I will flavor the blog with a few entries based on facts about our applicant pool for fall 2011.  I thought it might be nice for applicants to know more about the pool of applicants that they are a part of.

I will start with some information on the citizenship of applicants.  It is hard to find a university with more international students than Columbia, and a graduate school more international than SIPA.  Columbia University ranks third in the United States in terms of international student enrollment and SIPA commonly enrolls students from more than 100 countries per year.

This year applicants for our two-year programs hail from 97 different countries.  Also of note, not separated out are Permanent Residents.  Many Permanent Residents represent countries not counted in the 97 you see reflected below.

Map of Applicant Countries

Last week I posted an entry on some statistical information pertaining to the applicant pool this year. I mentioned that we received applications from citizens of over 100 different countries. I thought it would be interesting to provide a visual of this on a world map. A country colored red means we received an application from a citizen of that country.

"The most global public policy school, where an international community of students and faculty address world challenges."
