How We Get to Know You

In keeping with our academic philosophy, we take a “total systems” approach to admissions. Each component of your application is equally important. Like many other schools, we have evolved our practices and no longer require standardized test scores as a criterion for admissions. Rather, during the application process, we look for a holistic view of potential students’ passions and academic achievements. We will review quantitative skills performed in your professional life and in college courses, alongside qualitative elements such as teamwork, self-motivation, and sustainability values to understand who you are and determine if you are, indeed, a Presidian.

Over the course of the application process, we’ll ask for details on your Bachelor’s degree, work experience (you should have at least two years of professional experience), any letters of recommendation, and optional GMAT or GRE scores. We’ll also get to know you better through your personal statement.
