The Admissions Committee typically reviews applications during December and early January, and selected applicants are invited to interview with faculty. Those selected for an interview will be notified of the dates as soon as possible after the admissions committee makes its determinations. Interviews for Fall 2022 admission will take place mid-February.

The application review process typically takes ~3 months, and all decisions will be communicated at the conclusion of this process. All applications remain under review until final decisions are made. We thank applicants in advance for their patience during this time.
