It’s just before 10:00 as I write and I can say that our evaluative interview program is now in full swing. All that was required was four members of the Admissions team huddled around the front desk to remind ourselves of the parts of the process that are hard to recall until they’re actually needed. But I think we’ve got it now — high fives all around. And the day’s first interview seems to have gone swimmingly. Interviewer and interviewee emerged smiling.
I’ve already written a few posts to encourage all you applicants out there to schedule an interview. We’re nearly fully booked this week, but there are plenty of appointments available for the coming weeks. Whether you prefer to visit us on campus or participate in a Skype interview, sign up now to grab a convenient day and time. (And if you visit campus for your interview, you can build an information session, class visit, or coffee with a student into your day.)
This afternoon, I’ll be zipping over to Boston University for an Idealist Graduate School Fair. If you’re there, be sure to say hello.
With interviews and the fair this afternoon occupying my time, I don’t have much brain power left for blog creativity. I’ll leave it to a professor/PhD-candidate duo to share their creative ideas with you. The screen below will take you to an online discussion of their research.
