Application Review

After the December 1st deadline, a committee will be reviewing all applications during the entire month of December.  

Decisions to select applicants for an interview will be made in December and early January.

Applicants can continue to follow the "Under Review" and "Decision" status in the application portal.



Outstanding qualified applicants will be invited to interview with program faculty via Zoom, with a choice of three interview dates: 

  • January 19, 2024
  • February 2, 2024
  • February 16, 2024

Invited applicants will have the opportunity to learn more about our programs and meet with faculty and current students.

Admitted applicants will be invited for an on-campus recruitment visit in late March.
