How to Ace Your Graduate School Application Essay

Webinars: December 15 and January 19 at 4 p.m. Pacific Time

We all know the feeling: staring at a blank page…feeling stuck on what to write. Your essays are the most challenging (and insightful) part of the graduate school application. Join Sadia Khan (director of admissions) and Serena Rapp (assistant director of admissions) as they help you overcome the blank page and guide you to acing your graduate school application essay. We will leave time for any admissions questions you may have. Everyone who signs up will receive a recording.

Start Dates

We offer fall admission for all degree programs and spring admission for select programs. Check your degree program of choice to see if a spring start is an option. For start dates, visit the academic calendar.

Application Deadlines

Scholarships are awarded on a first-come, first-served basis. The earlier you apply, the more likely you are to receive our largest scholarships, so we encourage you to submit your application as soon as possible.
