For anyone in NYC this weekend, continue reading. I wanted to take a moment to tell you about a special presentation I’ll be giving at the QS World Grad School Tour on February 6, 2016. This Saturday, I’ll be at the graduate school fair from 3:00-6:00 p.m. I’ll take a brief break to present, “4 reasons to apply to Columbia SIPA (and how to stand out to the Admissions Committee)” at 5:00 p.m. So stop by around that time so you can learn all about the admissions process, and the benefits of attending SIPA. And even if you’ve already applied, you can definitely benefit as well and learn more about the advantages of attending SIPA.

All in all, the fair itself is a pretty good deal. This event brings together the world’s top grad schools and gives you the opportunity to meet face-to-face with admissions directors, learn about the best graduate programs in the world, apply for exclusive scholarships, and attend complimentary info sessions from the experts. Whether you’re ready to fast-track your career with a Masters or PhD or simply curious about what programs and opportunities are available, be sure to attend this special event as they only visit NYC a couple of times a year.

It’s normally $15 to attend, but as a friend of SIPA, you’ll get in for FREE by registering online at and remembering to quote “Columbia SIPA promo” at the door.
