For those of you who were at our Discover Korbel Event last Thursday and Friday, thanks for coming. It was great to meet you, put a face to your name and learn more about you. Can you believe someone actually came from Riyadh? This was an overwhelming event and I know many people left overloaded/overwhelmed with information. For those of you who could not attend this event we will try to make sure you have opportunities to receive answers to your enrollment related questions (email them to us, or give us a call). The most common question I answered last week was “how do I pay for this degree?” The truth is the majority of our students are financing this degree with loans. I understand that loans are terrifying and when you’re taking out the amount of debt needed to receive this degree, you should think about what it means for you and your future. What I can assure you of is that the majority of our students think it is worth it, the majority of our alumni feel it was worth it. However, what really matters is that you feel it is worth it and as I mentioned several times last week, this degree only works if you feel the value is there. Our job as an Admissions Office is to give you as much information as you need to assess value. If you have any remaining questions, please contact us so we can provide the necessary information for you to make your final decision. As a reminder, if you received a scholarship, your deadline to respond is April 20th. If you did not receive a scholarship, your deadline to respond is May 7th.
Please keep the questions coming our way.
Director of Graduate Admissions
