One piece of application advice: Be your authentic self. Each applicant brings a unique story and background when they are applying to the program. Make sure you are telling your story in a compelling way that helps the Admissions Committee understand why you are applying to this program and how it fits into your goals. I highly recommend speaking with a member of the Admissions team before submitting your application to ensure it is as strong as it can possibly be.
A fun fact about me: Growing up, I trained in classical ballet for 13 years.
