– Passion: We are looking for what you are passionate about and why

– Purpose: What skills do you lack that SIPA will provide?

– Intangibles: tell us what the rest of the application may not mention

Hints on how to write a good statement:申请的PS 的写作技巧:

1, Do not be vague – share your desired goal. Come out and say it, do not save it.

2, Do not regurgitate your résumé - too biographical and historical based. Try to talk about what direction you are going in and how SIPA can help you to get there.

3, Do not state the obvious – things already quite apparent from other documents.

– “My name is . . . . and I am applying to SIPA.”

– “SIPA is located in New York City.”

– “I completed a Bachelor's Degree in Economics at "X" University.”

8, Language: Living in foreign country, classes taken, family background, etc.

Evaluation Method in Application:申请筛选的准则

We do not use a matrix system with cutoffs

1, we evaluate each application on an individual basis

for example, a low GPA may be offset by exceptional professional experience

thus statistics like average GPA or GRE scores do not tell the whole story

2, We do look for continuity in applications

Application Factors:是否决定录取的因素

1,Necessary to measure applicant’s ability to deal with quantitative methods – aptitude

2,How is this measured?

– Undergraduate Transcripts

– Continuing Education
