Step 3: More about admissions & attend a sample lecture

We understand that no two students are the same, and we want to give you the chance to ask our admissions team your individual questions. You should also take a moment to join a sample lecture, either online or on-campus, to better understand how course material is discussed in class and what you can expect as a future student.
