You can see from the calendar that there are just a few days left until March 1. If you are putting the finishing touches on your application, that's great. Please know that the application must be completed by the end of the day on March 1. Please make sure you submit all three parts - Basic Application, Application Supplement, and the Application Fee. If you do not do this, you run the risk of our not receiving your application.
Materials such as transcripts, testing and recommended parts are just beginning to be added to your files. We received 28,000 first-year applications this year and we are still in the throes of that process. This will conclude on April 1st. It is not until the end of February that we start to zero in on matching up documents/transcripts/etc for transfers.
Please use your SIS account to monitor whether we have received your required materials. Please do not call the office to check to see if we've received your materials. It will take time to scan and process your documents. I'll try to give an update on here about how our file services team is doing in a few weeks.
I will not have any statistics on the applicant pool until the application process is complete. I hope to give you more information in April, but per usual, about 600-700 students will be admitted.
Finally, I would request civility and respect on this blog. Our admission blogs and the information we give are a courtesy to our prospective students. Again, please do not criticize others for their inquiries. As I have said in the past, we have the right to delete disrespectful commentary. Please do not answer questions of other commenters. In addition to the work we do during this extremely busy admissions season, we will answer your questions as best we can and in a timely manner. Thank you for reading and thanks for understanding.
