Graduate School Checklist
It is important to start gathering information early in order to be able to complete your application on times. We recommend you start the process as soon as possible.
Application deadlines may range from August (before your senior year) to later Spring/Summer (during your senior year). Most deadlines for the fall’s entering class are between December and March. You should, in all cases, plan to meet formal deadlines; beyond this, you should be aware of the fact that many schools with rolling admissions encourage and act upon early applications.

Three months before applying
Note: You may not be able to adhere to this timeline if your application deadlines are very early, as is the case with medical schools, or if you decided to attend graduate school at the last minute. In any case, keep in mind the various application requirements and be sure to meet all deadlines. If deadlines are impossible for you to meet, call the institution to determine if a late application will be considered.
