I'm considering it!!! Just trying to figure out the timing...Anyone know what their acceptance rate is? Good luck to all who apply!!!
From my understanding, they try to accept all qualified applicants, so it depends on which class you fall into.
It is very, very important to apply early, because if they get an overflow of qualified applications, they will close that particular class early. So you need to have everything already put together and ready to go as soon as they announce they will be accepting the class you wish to attend.
From my understanding, what happens is if you apply for class (and I am pulling these numbers out of the air)...100, they may wait list you for that class and offer you admission to class 101...however, if someone cancels, they may call you and tell you that they are going to offer you admission to class 100.
Now, I did find out something unique...they send their acceptances by email and their declines by letter and may or may not contact you at all if you are waitlisted...yes, odd, but that is how they do it.
Also, they do not notify those that have been accepted until 4 to 6 weeks before the START date of a particular class...which can be a hardship for travel, financial aid, changing your work schedule, etc.
