Application Review

From application to admission.

When you submit your written application to the admissions committee, you are engaging in a written dialogue about your suitability as a candidate for that program. The submitted document, therefore, needs to effectively convince an admissions committee to select you. Our goal is to work with you to ensure your application highlights your profile and clearly communicates why you should be accepted.
