Required Information Meetings for Applicants

Applicants are required to attend only one information session for any given competition, as all information sessions present the same content. However, as information changes from year to year, every applicant, regardless of attendance in previous academic years, must attend a meeting for the current competition.

Early Fall Competition

The Early Fall Competition is for study next term (Spring 2017) only. Early Fall Competition applicants must attend one of the first two information sessions.

Late Fall Competition

The Late Fall Competition is for study in Summer '17, Fall '17, and the 2017-18 Academic Year. Late Fall Competition applicants must attend one of the eight sessions listed below. The last information session is on December 8; there will be no more sessions after this date (there are no information sessions in the spring).
