In late December we issued admission letters for our Early Action students. We received many, many strong applications in Early Action and enjoyed learning more about you and your area of policy interest. Each year a number of potentially strong applicants are placed on the waitlist, and we wanted to provide more information on what this means for students, and details on when you may hear updates.

  • All waitlisted applicants will be reviewed with newly submitted applications in the next application rounds. The Round One application deadline is January 20th and the Round Two deadline is March 17th. Students on the waitlist do not need to take any additional action to have their application reviewed again, it will be reviewed automatically.
  • Waitlisted applicants who are admitted will receive an updated letter to their account. Students who are not admitted will not see a change to their account
