Done in a Week
Done in a Day is now Done in a Week!
The October 2020 Done in a Day has been repackaged and rebranded as a virtual event called Done in a Week. We will offer the same great programming, experiences, and access to faculty, staff and current students, but in a virtual format that spans three days. Done in a Week will be held Monday, Oct. 26th through Wednesday, Oct. 28th with admissions and scholarship decisions coming on Thursday, Oct. 29th. This allows for a flexible format for students to attend multiple portions of the event over the span of three days while still adhering to the CDC and Baylor recommendations for safe practices.
Attendees who have submitted a complete application along with the required supporting documents (see here for application requirements) will be allowed to interview on Wednesday, Oct. 28th. You will then be given an admission and scholarship interview within 24hrs! Better yet, we will be willing to waive your application fee if you've also registered for any DIAW events. Simply submit your application and let us know once you've been asked to pay your application fee.
Students' Perspective of Done in a Day:
While Done in a Week will vary from Done in a Day, we think that our students' past experience with DIAD still hold true. Take a look.
