The Admissions Committee begins to review applications in December, and continues through the end of January. Notifications of admission are made weekly throughout this time frame. Applications are reviewed in a random order, so applicants should not be concerned if they do not hear from the Committee until late in January. Applicants who are offered admissions will be invited to a visit weekend in February to meet with faculty and students and learn more about the program.
