Frequently Asked Questions


Do I need to submit all application materials at the same time?

No, you may submit application materials at various times up until the January 16 deadline. Once you upload a document, it is final.

In which format should I save my documents?

Please save any document uploaded to your profile as a PDF. Additionally, please title your submissions in the following format:

Résumé                                 [Last Name, First Name] - 1
Letter of Intent:                        [Last Name, First Name] - 2 Transcript:                               [Last Name, First Name] - 3
