Deadlines – one is coming up!

If you plan to apply, be sure you're aware of the deadline!

The application deadlines for the Fisher MLHR program are posted here. To recap:

  • International applicants: final deadline is March 1, 2012
  • Domestic applicants: final deadline is June 1, 2012

There is sometimes confusion among applicants with respect to what “international” and “domestic” mean. These terms do NOT necessarily refer to where an applicant is physically located at the time of application. Rather, the terms refer to the applicant’s legal “visa” status. If the applicant needs a student visa to study in the United States, that applicant is an international applicant. An international applicant can be in the U.S. already. For example, if the applicant is in the U.S. on a student visa and is attending a U.S. university and applies to the Fisher MLHR program, s/he is an international applicant. All others (e.g. US citizens, US permanent residents) are domestic applicants.

Do NOT panic – we are still accepting applications for autumn 2011

We are still accepting applications for autumn 2011

We have received several calls recently, asking whether we are still accepting applications for the Fisher MLHR program. The answer is “yes.” If you are a domestic applicant, we guarantee we will review applications submitted to us by May 1, 2011. (We may extend the deadline beyond May 1 but will not know for sure until the last week of April.) A good way to see whether we are still accepting applications is to go to fisher.osu.edu/mlhr. If the application link is still posted there, we are still accepting applications.

Note to those who wish to apply for autumn 2012: do NOT use the application currently posted at fisher.osu.edu/mlhr. If you have provided your name and email address to us already and have indicated that you are interested in applying for autumn 2012, we will contact you as soon as the autumn 2012 application is ready. We expect it to be posted online during August 2011 and no later than September 1, 2011.

Any applications submitted for spring 2011 must be completed (e.g. GRE scores submitted, recommendations submitted, etc., by January 31, 2011.)

Quick recap on which term to apply for based on your background:

“I submitted my materials three hours ago – did you receive them?”

We recently had our first early deadline (Nov 15) – specifically, for international applicants who wish to be considered for both admissions and then fellowship award nomination. We have received several inquiries from applicants who want us to check the status of materials sent to us.

Please note the following:

  • Items that are sent to us via surface mail (e.g. transcripts, etc.) are noted as received on the day we receive them and will be considered “on time” if this date meets our application deadline.
  • You can check your application status online by logging into your account. Please do not contact the office to confirm receipt of materials.
  • There is and will be a delay between the time that we receive materials and those materials being recorded as “received” on your status page. The delay can be anywhere from one to ten business days, depending on the time of year. Around application deadlines, expect the delay to be closer to be between five and ten business days.
  • If you submit materials to us (e.g. transcripts, TOEFL scores, etc.) prior to submitting your application, we are unable to confirm receipt of those materials.

What if you miss the Nov 15 deadline? We will review files in the order of completion until the March 1 international applicant final deadline. However, all else being equal, you should complete your application as early in the admissions process as possible.


Welcome, autumn 2011 applicants

It’s that time of year again:  the autumn 2011 Fisher/Ohio State MLHR application is now available.  Plan ahead so that all of your application materials arrive by the applicable deadline:

  • International application deadline (fellowship/financial aid consideration)
    • November 15
  • Domestic application deadline (fellowship/financial aid consideration)
    • December 31
  • Final application deadline for international applicants
    • March 1
  • Final application deadline for domestic applicants
    • May 1
      • Applications will be accepted from qualified domestic applicants after May 1 on space available basis; however, applications submitted earlier get more consideration than those submitted later.

We often receive questions on what “domestic” and “international” means. Domestic applicants are those who are U.S. citizens or U.S. permanent residents. International applicants are everyone else.

I recommend that you review the Fisher MLHR web site carefully and visit this admissions blog on a regular basis to stay updated on the application process and informed about the Fisher MLHR program. Don’t be afraid to post your questions and comments on the blog. If you have a question, most likely several other applicants are wondering the exact same thing!
