Things are happening quickly around here, friends. Talk of application deadlines around this time of year may seem a bit of lighthearted japery, but don’t get caught napping. Take a look at the calendar, and note that it’s already mid-September. For those interested in January 2020 enrollment at Fletcher, the clock is ticking. October 10, one short month away, is the deadline for submitting your application!
That’s actually still quite a bit of time, and there’s no need to panic. Murray, your Minister of Deadline and Other Action Item Reminders, as well as part-time dog Gandalf impersonator, certainly isn’t worked up yet. Do get going on assembling your materials, though, if this deadline applies to you. With GRE/GMAT scores now optional, the task for many applicants is a bit simpler. Your recommenders will still need plenty of notice to submit their letters, though, and it’s likewise a good idea to leave yourself enough time to work through several drafts of your application essays.
I’ll refer readers interested in learning a bit more about the implications of January enrollment to a helpful set of FAQs on the topic, as well as a couple past posts that go into things in more detail (with a note that this year’s October 10 deadline is a change from dates mentioned in those posts). Our office is available to answer any questions along the way, too. We’re looking forward to getting back into application-reading mode, and hope to see yours soon!
