She can review them and then discuss your particular circumstances with you to answer questions you may have. We encourage applicants to apply as early as possible for advising purposes. Applicants can work with the advisor to select appropriate courses if they desire to pursue consideration for the program. The current application can also be used to express interest for future consideration.
