Advice to Applicants
"Read directions. Even though schools have pretty similar directions across programs and programs have pretty similar directions across schools, it is always important to read the directions for that program, and that school.
"Also, stay in touch with your references - make sure they know what program you're applying to, what the features of that program are, and when they need to have their references in. Keep an eye on your applicant portal to see when we've received your letters, and touch base with your references before and after they're marked off with the green check mark. Also, it never hurts to tell them 'thank you.'"
