Applications to the PhD program are, without a doubt, the most complex each year — both for the applicants, and for the Admissions Office and PhD Committee on Admissions. In addition to the usual stuff (form, essays, transcripts, etc.), PhD applicants need to submit a dissertation proposal and master’s thesis or extended writing sample.
Because so much material needs to be compiled, we’ve adjusted the application deadline twice in recent years. First we went from January 15 to January 1. This year, we moved it up again — to December 20. Having the extra time to collect and review all necessary materials helps assure us that we’re giving every application the consideration it deserves.
