“When to Apply
General guidelines on when to apply are based on your application type.
First-time applicants. We strongly encourage you to apply in Round 1 or 2. The first two rounds have no significant difference in the level of rigor; the third round is more competitive, as we will have already selected a good portion of the class. However, there will be sufficient room in Round 3 for the strongest applicants.”
“International applicants. We advise you to apply in Round 1 or 2 if you need to apply for a student visa to study in the United States.”

- Applicants must submit a nonrefundable $6,000 tuition deposit within two weeks of admission.
- Candidates may submit Regular Decision applications as soon as the application becomes available in the summer.

- Final application deadline in April.
