I want to apply two master programs, because I think they both really fit my interests very well, do I need to send my tests scores twice, or just send once, and email you the two programs so that they can share my file? And I also want to know if my application is complete, when will I know the admission decision? Is it within 4 weeks? Thanks a lot!
You are more than welcome to apply to a second program! You will need to create an entirely new log-in and application through the Apply Yourself system (you can however use the same email address for notification purposes). You do not need to submit your test scores twice, we will be able to retrieve them from our system for both applications. If you wish to share additional materials across your two applications (transcripts or recommendation letters), please respond to the email we've sent you alerting you to your application status, and let us know exactly which materials you would like to be shared with your second application. You will receive your admissions decision about 4 weeks after your application is complete (if one completes after the other, then the second application may take longer for a decision).
When you log out of checking the status of the application on the log out page there is another line saying application 2 in progress. Is that indicating that my application is being looked at by someone in the admissions office?
Application 2 was a system we previously used to allow you to apply to a 2nd program (like the applicant in our first question). However, that system is no longer in use, and you are most likely seeing that message in error (just focus on the . Our office will send you an email to update you on the status of your application every time materials are received for you. Once you receive the email that says your application is complete, you know that it has then been sent to the faculty from the program to which you applied for an admissions decision.
Great questions! Hope this helps you get a better understanding of how our process works.
