Just a heads up that the Office of Admissions & Financial Aid is closing early today at 2:00 p.m. EST (UTC -5) for the Christmas holiday and will remain closed until Dec. 28. We will operate on a holiday schedule for the next two weeks. Here’s a look at when we’re open:

Office Hours
Dec. 23 from 9:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m.
Dec. 28 – 29 from 9:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.
Dec. 30 from 9:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m.
Jan. 4 (and onward) from 9:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.

Since I know some of you are worried that we’re closed this close to the fellowship deadline — Jan. 5 — I want to remind you of some recent blog posts you may have missed. All offer great insights into the application process, academics, and student life, which you may find valuable as you finalize your applications for admission. Some are familiar, yet noteworthy posts every applicant should read at least once.

Well that’s all I’ve got for now. And that looks like PLENTY of reading (and watching) to me. Happy Holidays!
