We like to do our part to help our applicants put together a good application. It may seem strange that the Admissions Office drops these hints, but we far prefer reading well-crafted applications to those that are, well, tossed together.
Over the last couple of years, we’ve compiled a bunch of tips that you can scroll through by clicking on the “Admissions Tips” category. There are some that are so important that I won’t wait for you to find them on your own. The first is: Make sure that all your documents come to us with the same name on them. There are many reasons why applicants have different names on their documents: change of surname following marriage; error by the testing services; different transliterations of spellings in another writing system; etc., etc., etc. But the bottom line is that you should not leave it to us to figure out which documents go into your application file. You need to tell us! Send us a note that says your transcript will have a different name on it. Then we’ll have the chance to pull everything together and make your application complete.
More tips will be coming. Meanwhile, check out what’s there already.
