Yesterday, Danielle Curtis (Asst. Director of Admissions & Financial Aid) emailed an announcement about the F&ES Master’s application form becoming available today. The application opened this morning at 9:00am Eastern Time, and I am happy to say that some of you started the process already. It is truly exciting for us to see your enthusiasm. Admissions staffers love people who do not wait until the last minute to start their application forms. We encourage you to research different graduate programs, investigate your options, work steadily to prepare and refine your application materials, and submit a timely and thorough application. Applying to graduate school isn’t rocket science, but it does take time and effort. Be mindful of the December 15th deadline and think ahead. Trust me, December will be here soon and we will wonder what happened to September, October and November!
APPLICATION TIP: Don’t wait until December to ask for your letters of recommendation. You should be thinking about your recommenders now. Ask them to complete your letters no later than December 1 so that you give yourself a 2-week cushion before the application deadline just in case someone loses the email link or forgets to press “submit” on the form.
