We continue to monitor the impact of COVID-19. The Admissions Committee has reviewed their policies with special consideration for the effects of COVID-19 on our applicants. The current policies have been established with these considerations in mind. For this reason, and in keeping with our Program’s policies, we are unable to waive any of our admission requirements for any reason.
As more jurisdictions across the country are closing schools, limiting large gatherings, and taking other measures to create social distance to minimize the spread of COVID-19, we have asked our staff to work remotely in the near term and all admissions information events have been either canceled or moved online. Given this change, we'd like to assure you that we have robust technology and a culture of flexibility that allows us to continue providing you with uninterrupted service.
We are closely monitoring guidance from the World Health Organization, the CDC, and state and local authorities and will provide up to date information on our website as new information becomes available.
Due to the competitive nature of this program, applicants are encouraged to submit their applications prior to the priority deadline of Feb. 1. However, applications will continue to be accepted through the extended deadline of March 15 at 11:59 p.m. EST.
Qualified applicants who meet the Feb. 1 priority deadline can expect to schedule virtual interviews between Feb. 15 and March 1. The first round of admissions decisions from the department will be offered by March 1. Student decisions (to accept or decline our offer) will be due by April 15.
