Attention, MPA applicants: The fall 2014 online application is open!
U.S. applicants (early deadline): December 1, 2013
International applicants: January 5, 2014
U.S. applicants (final deadline): March 1, 2014
U.S. Applications: The admissions committee reviews U.S. applications in the order of completion starting with those completed by December 1. As a general rule, U.S. applicants benefit by submitting their application materials as early as possible in the admissions cycle. However, if you need additional time to prepare your application (to prepare for the GMAT, for example), it is to your advantage to take your time and present the strongest application possible.
International Applications: The admissions committee does not use a rolling admissions process for international applications. Instead, we review all international applications after the January 5 application deadline.
I would encourage you to post general admissions questions to this blog. I can guarantee that if you have a particular question, other applicants have the exact same question! Any specific questions that are unique to your situation should be sent to me via e-mail.
We look forward to receiving your applications!
