Ah yes, the admissions cycle begins as we enter the 2010-11 academic year. As we prepare to welcome approximately 200 incoming students in September, we also prepare to hit the road to met potential fall 2011 students. Our recruitment schedule is set and can be viewed by clicking here. Please check back often as event times/locations are subject to change. One of the BEST parts of working in the admissions office is meeting tons of prospective students on the road and then seeing them here in September when they join us for their graduate degree! Well ok, earning all those frequent flyer miles isn’t so bad either. This year we will be in the main U.S. cities – San Fran, DC, NY, LA, Chicago, Minneapolis and of course here in Denver. A trip to Singapore, Ho Chi Minh City and Bangkok are also on the agenda. To register for any or all events (if you love frequent flyer miles as much as us), visit either the Association of Professional Schools in International Affairs (APSIA) website or the Idealist.org website.
We are also holding a fall open house event here at the Josef Korbel School on Thursday, November 11th from 4:00-6:00pm. This is a terrific opportunity to learn more about our programs, admissions requirements and have your questions answered by faculty, current students and our friendly admissions staff. To register for this event, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and let us know that you want to come to our open house. Please indicate which degree(s) you are interested in. A proper registration form will be available next week but for now, this is the best way to register.
As the header mentions…THE FALL 2011 APPLICATION IS NOW AVAILABLE. Start gathering your supplemental materials, sign up to take the GREs (expect a 3-5 week processing time once you take the exam) and contact us if you have any questions and/or would like to set up a visit to our school. Definitely check out our virtual tour of the University of Denver (DU) campus by clicking here. DISCLAIMER: this interactive tour does target undergraduate students BUT you will get a good glimpse of campus scenery. Keep in mind too that there are MORE graduate students on our campus than undergrads (total: 11,500, ~6000 grad students and ~5,500 undergrad students).
We look forward to a successful fall quarter filled with a tremendous incoming student cohort and another record-breaking year of applications.
