Since it’s not feasible for all international students to visit the campus in the US before applying, when you have questions about anything related to the programs or admission in general, email the admissions office or the department. Also, if you would like to know something from a current student's perspective, there are peer mentors in the college and student organization leaders available to answer questions. read more »
