The Common Application becomes available on August 1st…. and, coincidentally, this is also the first day we are taking appointments for on-campus admission interviews.  Interviews run on-campus most weekdays until Friday, December 6, 2013.  Interview availability is limited, and appointments tend to fill up fast.

Currently, we are only accepting appointments for on-campus interviews through the month of August.  The remainder of the semester’s appointments will be available towards the end of August.  We will also be holding interviews in select cities across the country starting in

Admission interviews are not a required part of our application process – please read through our admission interview page before deciding if an interview is right for you.
