Have you ever wondered what it be like to be on any of these places? Well, me, too. So definitely this program could actually help reach me to be successful and actually be here one day and you never know. So let's talk about a little bit about how I got into the program. What's interesting is I found this program by accident. It literally got an email one day about this program hosting some kind of info information session right after a class that I had and I knew I wanted to check it out, and after I went to go see it, I definitely fell in love and knew that this was the one. This would be the one that would take me to where I needed to be in my career and set my goals and expectations to reach this. Yeah, that is, the program coordinator is very lovely. She'll definitely answer any questions that you have, and you never should feel afraid to reach out to her because that also shows that you have that really strong interest in the program. To be honest, she's also one of the people that interview you, so it's good to be on her good side. So a lot of the things that our program requires is the same with other programs as well. So it would be something like the cover letter, as well as a resume or in short, C V, as well as to academic references. This could come in the form of anything between your professors to your academic research supervisor. I'm sure you'll find someone that is professional and that can reach out and speak on your behalf, because that really makes you a strong candidate afterwards. So I know this is the main concern for a lot of people, like what grades do I need? So definitely bring up your last two years grades, and you'll be fine. We really need this B plus or is 3.3 on a four point scale, and they're very lenient on that as long as you make up for it when in your letter as well as your personality, whenever you have that interview, because it actually shows you're committed and you'll be able to work well within the program. This by, you know you're background struggles be in any discipline, whether it be science, life, science, um, information technology or even engineering. So whatever that case, maybe as long as you had a business interest, you definitely belong within this program. After the interview session, which is consists of more like getting to Know You style as well as questions, make sure you have questions for the interviewer because that shows your interest as well as after that. We have a short math session where they kind of test your math skills because this program actually requires a little bit of Samat work to do so make sure you have a little bit of than that intuition for calculus, and you shouldn't have to worry. There's also a short ready piece that you have to do. I believe it had to do with something along the lines of How do you see yourself in five years? Or maybe what do you like about the program? So definitely consider a lot of these questions and phrase your answers to them because you'll be on a short time Really big tip that I can give you for the interview is if you're a guy, were short and a tie or if you're a girl, were colored shirt because definitely this really brings out that you're serious about the school and that you wanna belong here on. I know the interviewers really take that into consideration because a lot of people show up with just a regular shirt or something casual. Other thing would be definitely to use the star method in your answers. For the interview questions, make sure you understand what the situation is, what the task at hand that she did was, and what was that kind of result that ended up doing. Make sure you make that clear because they really love those types of answers because it addresses everything that they asked. If you don't understand something, don't hesitate to ask them again if your interpretation was right about the question or ask them to repeat the question. Because definitely you are very nervous, and I was too, in the same spot a year ago. This program is kind of like a short MBA, but you really don't need any work experience, so that's really the benefit of that. So you kind of learn and do the same things as you would expect in an MBA, but it's a little bit different and more of a small scale, but definitely it has that kind of power and outreach as well. I believe you don't need a G mat or g r E as long as you are living within North America. If you're international, definitely you should consider doing that because it also strengthens your application and make sure that you are very strong. Actually, big thing to know is how do I get support in my application? Honestly, if you can reach out for the ambassadors to get information and I'm actually one of them. So it's really good to get to know like us on what we like about the program, as well as like how you can get your application to Sando. Aside from reaching out to the program coordinator, it's also good to have your friends read over your transcript and everything else, including your letters, because that make sure it's like everything is coincides and you have everything that you are needed for and required to know one thing that closed off the base, something really cool about this programs You also get like merchandise. U T Hoody is awesome songs and like food containers. Like, if you're interested in having those collectibles, this program is also really cool.
