Reapplicants

Any applicant who has been accepted but subsequently fails to enroll, or who has been refused admission but wishes to enter in a subsequent year, must re-apply for admission and must meet all requirements in force at the time of the new application. The Admissions Committee expects all re-applicants to have improved their credentials significantly.

in the best interests of applicants, Reapplicant applications will be reviewed starting after January 1, 2016, however the applications must be completed by the deadlines given. This later review process is done so that any reapplicant has time and can send in supplemental information to add to their application (fall course grades, additional shadowing/volunteer, etc.) for the Committee to review.
