Tips on a good application:
- Pay close attention to the instructions and follow them to the letter. Incomplete applications are not evaluated.
- Please do not use staples or paper clips, simply arrange the papers in order.
- Do not enclose documents in separate envelopes (only the recommendation letters and transcripts that arrive directly from the university may be in sealed envelopes).
- Interleaves are not necessary.
Supporting documents: In addition to all the required documents, a good application has the relevant supporting documents. Use your good judgement when choosing which supporting documents to include in the application. The application does not get better by the amount of documents provided. On the contrary, irrelevant documents may weaken the application.
Do not send any documents by e-mail.
