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.
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.
Early Notification deadline for September 2014 enrollment in the MALD, MA, MIB, or LLM programs.
Deadline for September 2014 enrollment in the PhD program. Note that this is the only deadline for the PhD program.
Early Notification deadline for Map Your Future applicants to MALD and MIB programs.
Regular deadline for September 2014 enrollment in MALD, MA, MIB, or LLM programs.
Final deadline (no scholarship consideration) for MALD and MA programs.
Final deadline (no scholarship consideration) for MIB and LLM programs.
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.
