Step Two: Interview

The GSAL associate director and team members will carefully review your application and, should you meet the general application standards, will invite you for a telephone interview. The interview is a time for you to share your main objectives and goals for participating in the GSALB or RS GSALB programs and an opportunity for the interviewer to help contextualize your academic performance thus far and make collaborative plans for your academic future. Applicants will be informed of the admissions decision by the end of the interview.

Step Three: Submit Transcripts

Once you are admitted, you must submit official transcripts to:

Transcripts must be submitted by the end of the first week of matriculating as a GSALB or RS GSALB student. Failure to do so may result in the inability to register for courses and disciplinary action.
