Deadline Confusion Due To Date Format Rutgers


Recommended Posts

They are probably using the US versioning of dates of Month/Day. Makes more sense that way when the deadline to submit for admission with  financial aid is Dec 1st but the absolute deadlines without aid are later (March and May 1st).

I agree that it might be confusing since the world using a different standard. Every CS department I applied to spelled out the month (so December 1st rather than 12/1)

The Rutgers deadline says 12/1 for MS in Statistics. Does this mean 1 December 2016 or 12 January 2017?

There are multiple ms/stats programs at rutgers, all with different deadlines, but in general the 12/1 (December 1 2016) deadline is for applying for admission and financial aid

The Statistics & Biostatistics - Data Science specialization at the New Brunswick Graduate school has rolling admissions (you can pretty much apply until the day before classes start in the Fall)

The plain Statistics & Biostatistics program at the NB Grad school, has a May 1 2017 deadline or domestic students, March 1 2017 for international students,

The Statistics / financial concentration has a July 1st and June 1st deadline for US or international students.

The program at the School of Public Health has a completely different application process with different deadlines. the School of Public Health came over with the UMDNJ merger and has not been completely integrated with the rest of RU yet.

You should read all dates and time formats in the local convention of the school. In the US, numerical dates are always month/day, so 12/1 is December 1. In Canada, we mostly use Day-Month, however, both formats are common so you'll very rarely see numerical dates (the US seems to really like to abbreviate things!)---you'll see 1 Dec or Dec 1 instead. 

Same thing with times. If you see a time listed, assume it's in the time zone of the school unless listed otherwise!
