Wondering about the status of your M.A. application?

Some of our student staff, who are working diligently to process your applications.
So, you’ve submitted your M.A. application online, you’ve sent in your test scores, and you’ve requested your transcripts.  And you want to know what’s going on with your application, right?
Please be assured that the SAIS Admissions Office staff is working diligently to process all the applications in a timely manner.  As early as we can, we email every applicant with an update on their application, either confirming that “yes, we have everything” or notifying applicants of any missing materials.  So make sure that is on your safe senders list!
Additionally, we are updating received transcripts on Apply Yourself, so you can log in to your AY account to check on your transcripts (as well as your online recommendations).
Once we’ve confirmed that your application is complete, it moves forward in the review process.  After that point, you won’t receive any additional updates from SAIS Admissions until we release admissions offers in mid-March.  We know it’s really hard, but you’ll have to be patient!
Thanks for reading!
