Interviews

Interviews are required and are by invitation only. Once the application and letters of recommendation are submitted, you may be invited for an interview. Interviews generally begin in the early morning and last until late afternoon. The day consists of interviews with faculty, and if time permits conferences and tours of the facilities. You will be provided with lunch while here for the interview.

The purpose of the interview is to permit the candidate to discuss the program and its philosophies with faculty. It also provides the candidate an opportunity to meet representative faculty. All interviews must be officially scheduled and confirmed with the Program Coordinator. We plan to complete all interviews by October. Please let us know in advance if there is any specific faculty member that you have a particular interest in meeting. Also, please let us know if you have any personal issues (i.e., spouse employment, schools, etc) that need special attention on your interview day.
