How many students do you take on?

Each advisor works with 25-30 students per application cycle.  We want to make sure that: a) your advisor is available to you if you have questions, b) you can get a meeting with your advisor within a reasonable amount of time (usually within about a week) and c) our essay and email turnaround remains prompt.  That's why we turn away many of the students we meet with.  We have close relationships with most of our students, so we only want to work with students who are the best fit to work with us.
