Overview of the Application Process

Once an application is received, an automated email will be sent to the email address provided on the application. If something is missing that is needed to complete the application, we will send a follow-up email.

Each application is thoroughly reviewed by the Admissions Committee before a final decision is rendered. We have no set “formulas” we follow when we review applications. Countless hours are devoted to the task of ensuring that every application is reviewed thoroughly and that every applicant has received full consideration in the admissions process.
