Answer by Stephanie Kluth
It is important for every applicant to fully research a school before applying. If we are continually asked questions that are evident from our website, it does not reflect well on the applicant. We also want to see in the application that the person knows the school and what it stands for - the application is the chance for a person to explain why they fit in with our mission and goals. When students don't do this, or fail to understand the school, it does not reflect well on their application. Finally, friendliness and professionalism at every point of communication is extremely important. Treating a student assistant unprofessionally, then being kind to our director, will get noticed. We expect an applicant to respect every individual, no matter their job title.
