Hi everyone! We hope you’re already having a great start to the year 2020. Since many of you are wrapping up your applications for the January 8, 2020 deadline, we thought it would be helpful to re-post an article from last year called “Last Minute Application Tips.”
As the application deadline draws closer, please enjoy these short excerpts from staff members at the Office of Admissions talking about what they wish applicants knew.
Hi everyone! If you’re planning to apply for the 2021-2022 school year, we hope this blog has been helpful in getting you ready for the January deadline. In 2018, our Graduate Assistants created a wonderful blog post series called “How to Apply” that will walk you through each aspect of the application process. In December 2020, we went back and updated the articles to reflect this year’s requirements.
In this article, we walk through the requirements and best practices for the TOEFL/IELTS and the GRE. Please note that the GRE is optional for all applicants!
This post was originally written in 2018 but has been updated to reflect accurate application information in December 2020. To provide additional insight on this section of the application, we’ve included a short video with our Admissions Graduate Assistants, Kate Hoeting, Atéha Bailly, and Jessica Cantos, where they share their experiences with the writing sample.
