Application Due

The online application will officially close at 11:59 PM on February 5, 2019. All applicants will receive a notification, regardless of the outcome, in the following days.

For applicants who submit an application well before the deadline, the admissions committee MAY choose to independently evaluate and offer an early interview invitation. Thus it is generally more advantageous to apply earlier.

In rare cases of extenuating circumstances, applicants may write the admissions committee a Request for Deadline Extension at Valid circumstances are declared on a case-by-case review by the committee.

Every applicant is eligible and encouraged to re-apply the following semester should they not be extended an interview. Decisions for interviews are largely based on specific characteristics and the fit of the individual with the cohort.


Applicants invited to become candidates are required to interview with the admissions committee soon after the application deadline. Interview times are assigned randomly with no advantage given to earlier or later interviews. Interview dress code is business casual.

The interview process takes approximately 40-45 minutes and consists of both technical and behavioral questions/activities. Candidates often ask of the best way to prepare for the SELL Interview. There is none. The interview process is unorthodox and targeted at understanding a candidate's thought process and background. Additional details will be provided in interview invitations.

Offer Announcements

All candidates who were interviewed will receive a final response on February 18, 2019. From then, candidates are required to officially accept or decline their spot in the fellowship cohort. Occasionally, should a selected candidate chooses to decline, the admissions committee may choose to extend an offer to another candidate on the waiting list.

Best of Luck!
