SCHEDULE OF REQUIRED INFORMATION MEETINGS FOR APPLICANTS

Applicants are REQUIRED to attend only one information meeting for any given competition, as all meetings present the same content. However, as information changes from year to year, every applicant, regardless of having attended a meeting for a previous competition, must attend a meeting for the current competition.

The Early Fall Competition is for study next term (Spring 2016) only. Early Fall Competition applicants must attend one of the first two meetings. The Late Fall Competition is for study in Summer '16, Fall '16, and the 2016-17 Academic Year. Late Fall Competition applicants must attend one of the eight meetings listed below. The last meeting is on December 3; there will be no more meetings after this date (there are no information meetings in the spring).

Students who are unable to attend the entire meeting should choose another date as credit for attendance will not be given to students who arrive late or leave early.

Information meetings will take place at 55 Whitney Avenue, 3rd Floor. Please see below dates for specific room assignments.
