The Committee has provided extensive information here about the Program and the application process. We believe that if you will take the time to read this material carefully most of your questions will be answered. If you do have questions after reviewing this material, please feel free to write me directly. Any messages you send to me will eventually be included with your application material if you do decide to apply to Chicago.
