Emerson’s Approach to Holistic Admission
The Office of Graduate Admission takes a holistic approach to evaluating applications, recognizing that a student's potential goes beyond their Grade Point Average (GPA) alone. We understand academic achievements are just one aspect of a candidate's capabilities and potential for success. By considering multiple factors such as personal and professional achievements, creative samples, and the applicant's response to essay questions, we gain a deeper insight into their passion, drive, and unique qualities.
