 Declined Applicants

  • We are not able to accommodate individualized declined applicant advising. Each declined applicant will be sent a document summarizing common reasons for declined admission, as well as tips to assist them to reflect on and improve a future application. Anyone wishing to reapply to the program is advised to follow the guidance provided in this document and to attend an applicant information session.
  • If you are not accepted into the program, a second application is allowed. With special permission, a third application is allowed, based on demonstrated significant performance improvement and increased likelihood of submitting a successful application.
  • There is no official waitlist for the program, as it is rare for applicants to decline offers of admission.  If a vacancy should arise, an offer of admission will be made to the highest ranked student on the list of declined applicants.
