  2. Complete the application in full. If a question does not apply, note that on the application. Do not leave blank. Provide all additional supporting material, such as transcripts, letters of recommendation and essays.
  3. Follow directions. Provide everything that’s required, but don’t supply items that aren’t requested. You could be disqualified.
  4. Neatness counts. Type your application. Use copies as working drafts as you develop your application packet.
  5. Write an essay that makes a strong impression. Key to writing an essay is to make it strong and passionate. We want to know about you and your future.
  6. Watch all deadlines. Keep yourself on track by imposing your own deadline that is at least two weeks prior to the official deadline. Use the buffer time to make sure everything is ready on time. There are no extensions!
