Information About the Application Review Process

Applications submitted prior to the February 15 deadline will be reviewed and receive an admissions decision within six weeks. Candidates will be ranked using a combination of undergraduate GPA and TOEFL scores (if required), students’ statements on the Graduate College application, and letters of recommendation. The program is selective and space limited due to clinical placement capacity. There is no guaranteed admission for undergraduate students wishing to enter the MSAT. The applications will be reviewed by the Admissions Committee, comprised of program faculty, who will then make recommendations for admission.
