    Cuppa woes ... UIC MUPP Application issues

    Here is the prog. link. :: http://www.uic.edu/cuppa/upp/prospec...pply_mupp.html

    I am a little confsued with some of the admission requirements at UI-Chicago. All three of my recommenders have sent in the recommenders through the link from the portal.

    1. University Admission Policy: Bachelor's degree from accredited institution
    2. Minimum Undergraduate GPA: 3.0 for final 60 semester hours
    3. Minimum GRE: No Requirements (no recommended score if taken)
    4. Minimum TOEFL: 550 paper-based; 213 computer-based; TOEFL ibt 80
    5. Ranking in Undergraduate Class: Not Required
    6. Departmental Requirement: 3 letters of recommendation, personal statement and writing sample
    7. GRE and resume for Assistantship
    8. Electronic submission
    9. Admissions Review Cover Sheet

    My issue is with these two – (7) & (9). Both documents need a signature. Do I just print this out, sign and upload the scan?

    The pain doesn’t end here. There is also a longish read-only PDF form called the “ Application for Graduate Appointment.” . I am not comfortable with asking my recommenders to fill it by hand. The deadline is Jan 1 and I am getting all these OOO replies when I email them.

    Admissions Review Covert Sheet and Application for Graduate Appointment (no additional letters of recommendation required for AGA) can be found at:

    no additional letters required?!
    This is confusing and conflicting

    Any current students/other applicants to the MUPP, please chime in.

    Hey. I also applied to UIC MUPP. Hope my reply isn't too late.

    For 7 I just printed out the form, filled it in nicely in dark black ink, printed the essay portion and taped it on there, signed, then scanned it in to be uploaded. I also printed out the scan, and mailed a hard copy to the offices. There weren't any really specific instructions.

    However, after I already submitted it, I found a link to a fillable PDF form by Googling "UIC Graduate Appointment." I don't know why the one linked to from the MUPP page was not fillable, but the fillable one would have been a lot easier.

    If you're having the recommenders submit online and it was within the last year, you don't need to submit the recommendations again. This is written on the form somewhere.
