Applications may be submitted starting in mid-July. Consideration of completed applications for interview slots begins on August 1 and proceeds on a rolling basis.
Since interview slots are limited, it is to your advantage to apply as early as possible. In previous years, a higher percentage of applicants who apply early have been interviewed and admitted than those who applied closer to the final deadline.
