Sticking with the idea of helping this year’s applicants get their minds around the process, I’m going to lay out the application deadlines for you.  In fact, you can find them on our website, but my contribution will be to format them in an even plainer way.  Then, assuming you’re applying to one of the programs with more than one deadline, you can pick your own.  Here are the dates and the details on which program applications are due on those days.

October 15
Deadline for January 2014 enrollment in the MALD program.  This is the only deadline for January enrollment, and only MALD students may apply to start their studies in January.

November 15
Early Notification deadline for September 2014 enrollment in the MALD, MA, MIB, or LLM programs.

December 20
Deadline for September 2014 enrollment in the PhD program.  Note that this is the only deadline for the PhD program.
~and~
Early Notification deadline for Map Your Future applicants to MALD and MIB programs.

January 10
Regular deadline for September 2014 enrollment in MALD, MA, MIB, or LLM programs.

February 10
Final deadline (no scholarship consideration) for MALD and MA programs.

March 1
Final deadline (no scholarship consideration) for MIB and LLM programs.

May 15
Regular deadline for Map Your Future applicants to MALD and MIB programs.

Once you’ve made your choice, mark it in your calendar.  And then also put a note on the day one week before the deadline.  That’s the date you should aim for, to minimize wear and tear on the brain and nerves.

    It is mentioned here that only MALD students may start in January, but in other places in the website, even the MIB is shown to have a Spring enrolment. Please clarify.

    Thanks

  2. Hello Tapish,
    Congratulations to you for doing such thorough research. Just last week, the policy was reconsidered and the decision was made to allow more students to start the MIB program for the spring semester. I checked in with Kristen, the admissions director for the MIB program, and she said that we’ve had some MIBs start mid-year in the past (because personal issues prevented them from enrolling in September as they would have originally planned) and they had no problems. Summer is when we reconsider processes and policies, and changes like this are part of the normal evolution of a new program.

    I hope this explains both the website/blog discrepancy and the new policy. Feel free to email us at fletcheradmissions@tufts.edu if you have further questions.

    Regards,
    Jessica

  4. Perfect, Tapish. I’m sure Kristen will be happy to answer your questions.

    Jessica
