If an applicant's file is complete by November 15, it will be reviewed and candidates will be selected for an interview. Those selected for an interview will be notified of a date and time. The purpose of the interview is to enable the admissions committee to secure direct information concerning the applicant's professional interests, motives for choosing this degree program, and related past experiences. If it is impossible for the applicant to come for an interview because of excessive distance, other methods will be arranged.
