  • Have all documents required for completing the application organized and accessible (two email address for Letters of Recommendation, Industry Observation or Interview response and Personal Statement).
  • Have all your short answer questions completed beforehand, including your Industry Observation or Interview and Personal Statement writing assignments, as these can be copied and pasted into the application from word.
  • Follow the directions carefully; this is a competitive, limited-entry program and not all qualified applicants will be accepted.
