Meet With an Admissions Officer

If you are not able to attend one of these sessions, you may contact the admissions office to set up an individual appointment, which can be done in person, by telephone or via Skype. An informational interview generally runs 15 to 20 minutes and is an opportunity for you to meet with us one‐on‐one to go over your questions and concerns. Note: these meetings are not required and hold no weight in the admission process.
