FAQ: Important Dates

There are many programs that are still open after the Equal Consideration Date, as well as programs that start at different times of the year. Use our Find a Program tool to find open programs and information on when to apply.

The equal consideration date is the deadline for applying to highly competitive programs if you want your application to be considered on an equal basis with all other applicants.
