Individual Informational Interviews

If you have questions about the program, the admissions process or deadlines, please attend one of our Friday information sessions. If you are not able to attend one of our sessions, you may contact the admissions office to set up an appointment. An informational interview is an opportunity for you to meet with us one-on-one to go over your questions and concerns. These are generally 15 to 20 minutes in length. Please note: these interviews are not required and hold no weight in the application process.
