Question about Preferred Deadline


Recommended Posts

I am applying to the Univesity of Maryland school of Public Policy and I was wondering what they exactly mean by preferred deadline. The website does not explain it, however, other grad programs at UM say that it is for financial assistance. I was wondering if I can just assume that is true for the public policy school too.

Also, it seems that April 1st is pretty late.


From: http://www.publicpolicy.umd.edu/prospective/application.html


Fall – All (but EXPM and POSI)

· Preferred Fall: December 15

· International: February 1

· Final Fall: April 1

I'd say December 15 is the deadline to get considered for financial aid. With absolutely no guarantees, they'll keep accepting applications after that deadline but only until April 1.

In other words, you should apply by December 15 if you're at all keen on getting in.
