January 15 – March 9: Admissions reviews
This is the time when the Office of Graduate Admissions compiles your application materials, and our faculty and staff review them to determine final decisions. As you can imagine, this is a painstaking and time-consuming process, so you will not hear from us about your status for a while after the deadline. The status of your materials is available for your review in your online application profile, but remember, it can take a while for the Office of Graduate Admissions to receive and process your info, which is why we recommend getting tracking information for anything mailed in to Graduate Admissions.
