The evaluation of criteria for admission will be made on a case-by-case basis by the Program Director.

  • Evidence of ability to succeed in a post-baccalaureate program of study, attested in a letter of reference from a professor familiar with the applicant’s previous academic work. In exceptional cases, this condition may be waived.
