Can I still send in my application if I've missed the deadline?

We can admit students who send in applications after the deadline; however, top priority for funding (i.e., graduate research assistant positions) goes to applicants who get their application in on time. Occasionally, we get funding for a GSR position after the end of the normal admission cycle. You can ask about the availability of these. In general, though, your application has to be pretty good, otherwise we will just wait for the next application cycle to get a larger pool of applicants. Also, your ability to make a deadline is important for success in graduate school, so consider how a late application reflects on your planning abilities. (In some cases, we may encourage an applicant to apply early. This is a different situation.)
