Pretty straightforward, right? Also to note: the application pieces include an up-to-date resume, two current professional recommendation letters, a short personal essay, and $30. Luckily, there’s plenty of rain in the forecast between now and the cut-off date – great for cutting down on distractions, if not much else! Find a chunk of time over the next week to get your application sorted and sent ASAP.
