What we look for

While academic accomplishment is important, the Admissions Committee considers many other factors—strong personal qualities, special talents or excellences of all kinds, perspectives formed by unusual personal circumstances, and the ability to take advantage of available resources and opportunities.

We believe that a diversity of perspectives and approaches can contribute to creating outstanding creative projects.
