Insider tips on what the SIPA admissions committee looks for in an applicant
There is no “perfect” candidate. Many of our applicants are interested in advancing professionally within their field, while others are changing their careers entirely. Some have stellar academic records, and many have stumbled a time or two while in college. And every type of applicant has been admitted to SIPA. Thus, due to the diversity of our applicant pool, there are no firm requirements for applying (and that includes GPA, GRE/GMAT scores and work history).
For a general idea of what we look for in a candidate academically and professionally, read the following recommendations for making your application as competitive as possible.
