Admission Decisions

Admissions decisions are made by faculty committees. They review only complete application files. Their decisions are final and not subject to appeal.

In the admissions review process, the faculty evaluate all elements of an application very carefully. They consider

  • Past academic performance
  • Rigor of the curriculum taken
  • Standardized test scores (if required)
  • Letters of recommendation
  • Goals statement
  • Writing sample (if required)
  • Professional experience, applicant’s fit with the program
  • Any additional evidence of potential success in the program

The number of students admitted each semester is based on the resources available to the program.
