We strongly recommend that you wait until you have all required materials before submitting your application. We cannot review your application without your resume, complete university transcript or course-by-course evaluation (if you earned your degree outside of the United States), and application short essays. We review complete applications in the order in which they are received. There is no benefit to submitting an application early that is incomplete.
An example of how our application screening process works:
1) You submit your application for the first time on May 27th and your application is the 20th application for us to process.
2) On June 9th our application screeners mark your application as Incomplete because you only submitted one of two pages of your undergraduate transcript.
3) You submit your application again on June 10th with a new version of your transcript. There are now 150 other applications for us to process. The processing timeline that is included in your submission message will be based on the new date (June 10th).
*Please note that we will not upload materials to your application on your behalf.
