Step 2: Letters of Recommendations and Video Statement (submit only when contacted and asked to do so)
Letters of Recommendation (do not submit until requested)
After a review of your Initial Information, selected applicants will be asked to provide two recommendations from people capable of judging your professional and/or academic promise (i.e., supervisor, professor). Because our admissions committee focuses on work experience, we urge applicants to provide one letter of recommendation from their professional experience and one academic recommendation letter.
Please check the box under Waive if you wish to waive any rights you might have to inspect and review the recommendation. Once the letter writer sees that you have waived, you cannot later un-waive.
After you have entered the information about your recommenders and saved it, visit Letter Status to request letters from your recommenders.
Required Video Statement (do not submit until requested)
After a review of your Initial Information, selected applicants will be asked create a short video of themselves answering several questions. You will need webcam capability to complete your application. Please record a video statement (5 minute time limit) answering the following questions and provide us with a link to the video (for example YouTube) in the URL field below. Please make sure the link is not private so that individual admissions committee members can access it.
