Admission Interviews

DATE: September 1 (Thursday) and September 2 (Friday)

The admission interviews are free-flowing conversations, lasting about half an hour per applicant, where the admission committee tries to get to know the person behind the many data and details we have on file. The committee attempts to assess the applicants' fit and judge their future success with the program. In its evaluation, the committee considers three broad categories: prior education/experience and recommendations, motivation letter (explaining why the applicant wants to enroll in this program and how, in the applicant’s view, the program impacts their career), and the committee’s impressions during the interview.
