    Frequently Asked Questions

    What is Instant Decision Day?

    If you’re not familiar with instant decision days, think of them as the cure to the stress that can be tied to the months of waiting between when you apply for a program and when you receive an admissions decision.

    During our instant decision day, you can meet with a graduate admissions counselor, and in less than 30 minutes, leave the meeting with an admissions decision in hand.

    What should I expect on the day of the event?

    Once you arrive on campus, you’ll meet with one of our admissions counselors and faculty from your intended program. You’ll have a private, casual conversation between you and experts who are invested in helping you move forward toward your professional goals.

    You’ll have the opportunity to discuss your academic history, expand on your accomplishments, and ask any questions you may have throughout the process.

    Can I submit electronic copies of my documents prior to coming, or should I bring printouts of my materials?

    You may upload the documents along with your electronic application, or you may simply bring them with you at the time you meet with us.

    If you’re bringing physical copies of your recommendation letters, we do ask that those be in sealed envelopes.

    Are the GRE or GMAT required for any programs? Will I need to submit those scores?

    No! We do not require GRE or GMAT scores for any of our graduate programs.
