TO PREVENT YOUR APPLICATION SESSION FROM TIMING OUT: Complete the essay and extracurricular activities portion of the application process first in a Microsoft Word document. You can then copy and paste your responses into the essay section of the online application. This time saver will help prevent a potential timing-out issue that can occur if the application process is too lengthy. If the essay and activities portions are completed before, the application process will take approximately 15-30 minutes.
