Application Process

All MSL programs use the same admissions standards and use the same online portal for application submissions. 

The application requires the following:

  • A statement of purpose that addresses specific questions
  • One letter of recommendation
  • A resume or CV
  • Transcripts from all undergraduate and graduate programs
  • International students must submit a TOEFL or IELTS score or apply for a TOEFL/IELTS waiver

Applicants are encouraged to submit standardized test score reports (e.g., GMAT, GRE, LSAT, MCAT), but a test score is not required. Applicants are also free to submit additional letters of recommendation. 

There is no fee to apply for the MSL Program.
