This has been a great week since the rest of the admissions team and I have been busy interviewing applicants for fall 2010 and reviewing applications. So far I have been very, very impressed by the candidates we’ve met with. For me, the interview is such an important part of the application process since it puts a face to the name on the application file. As a smaller program, we take pride in getting to know our students well, and the interview lets us learn more about applicants’ interests, goals, and experiences that will enable them to add their own unique perspective to the incoming class.
While it’s early in the application process for the new class, I am looking forward to seeing some more great candidates for our December 15 application deadline. It won’t be long before we begin mailing out our first letters of acceptance for the class of 2012!
