Our thoughts are with prospective applicants who are dealing with the devastating impact of recent natural disasters in the southern United States, Puerto Rico, Mexico, and the Caribbean. We realize that some applicants living in these regions are facing tremendous technical difficulties as they work to complete their graduate school applications.
If you are concerned about recommendation letters, school documents, or GRE scores arriving late due to technical infrastructure issues, please upload a statement to the Additional Information section of your application explaining the potential delay. The Graduate School will review your statement and let you know which application materials will be accepted after the application deadline.
