BWS DI will review DICAS applications as they are received, and will invite promising candidates to interview with the admissions team via Zoom. Starting at 11am CT on November 8th, BWS DI will email selected candidates to invite them to formally apply to the program via DICAS, if they haven’t done so already. Such an invitation indicates that BWS DI is seriously interested in the applicant. The interview is the final step in the application process.

  • Admissions decisions will be communicated to applicants within 48 hours of their interview. Applicants will then have 48 hours to accept their spot in the program.
  • An application fee to apply to second round match is NOT required. However, if accepted, a $75 application fee and tuition deposit will be due upon acceptance.


Candidates may submit their Intent to Apply form any time after the publication of First Round Match decisions. However, since Second Round Match is a rolling admissions process, we encourage you to apply as soon as possible to ensure the availability of open spots.
