Admissions

We are seeking a class of approximately 65 students. Admissions is highly competitive, so we encourage you to take advantage of the one-on-one resources available in order to submit a strong application and prepare for the interview. Due to limited seats, we encourage applicants to apply early.

Top Reasons to Apply Early!

  1. Applying and getting admitted early allows time to prepare for the program. We realize that in order for the “stars to align”, you need time to prepare.
  2. Applying and being admitted early gives you access to content released ahead of time: Class invites, virtual hangouts with admitted/current students, financial aid sessions and refresher material.
  3. For those that deposit before Dec. 1, the initial deposit is reduced 50%, so instead of $1,000, your deposit is $500. The deposit confirms your admission and triggers the order for your laptop and textbooks to be ready for you in August 2022 (orientation).
