Step 5 - Ranking of Applicants
Once all the data are compiled, the Admissions Committee rank-orders the students based on the Interview Scores.
Step 6 - Establishing the class and alternate list
When we have finished steps 1-5, the Admissions Committee will identify those applicants who are extended offers and those that will be retained on an alternate list. We complete what is termed "rolling admissions"; meaning that we admit some students throughout the admissions and interview process, but hold a number of positions until the final interviews are completed and the Committee can consider the full applicant pool. All final decisions are usually made by May 1 but some offers have been made as late as July 1.
