What is Rolling Admission?
Rolling admission means that applications are reviewed continuously throughout the admissions cycle, with admission decisions being sent after each interview day. By late winter or early spring, our class on one or both campuses may fill, so we strongly encourage applicants to apply early in the admissions cycle. For example, at our first interview day, 100% of our seats are open. But in the past, all our seats have been offered and a waitlist has been established by the time our last few interview days occur.
Our admissions committee makes its decision whether or not to admit an applicant based solely on our selection criteria, rather than whether or not we have room in the program. Seats in our program are offered to admitted applicants on a “first come, first served” basis, so applying later in the cycle increases the risk that our class will already be full. For example, at the end of the admissions cycle an applicant could be deemed admissible by the admissions committee, but we are unable to offer a seat in our program to the admitted applicant unless and until someone else withdraws from their seat.
