Admission PhilosophyOur admission process has one mission: to identify applicants, who as individuals and as a group, will enrich and benefit from the campus learning environment—and the entire student body.
According to our Statement of the Philosophy of Undergraduate Admissions, we are charged with admitting and enrolling the most talented, diverse and interesting class possible. With such a large and strong pool of students to review, our task is daunting—but the results are impressive. Our students are smart, involved, curious and innovative, and show amazing initiative.
Our admission committee is comprised of a team of professionals who undertake an individualized, rigorous and holistic review of each application, assessing academic merit, achievements and potential, in the context of the opportunities and challenges the student faced.
